Thousands sign petition to deport Piers Morgan

Piers Morgan

Over 32,000 people have signed an online White House petition to have Piers Morgan deported from the United States due to his call for stricter gun control in America.

In the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut massacre, Morgan has taken an outspoken and aggressive stand for more rigorous gun control laws in the USA. On his CNN program 'Piers Morgan Tonight,' he spoke to a gun advocate named Larry Pratt, the executive director of Gun Owners of America. The interview devolved to the point where Morgan called Pratt an "unbelievably stupid man." In Morgan's defense, that guy made Forrest Gump look like a candidate for MENSA.

Alleging that Morgan is "engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment," the petition has been available for twenty-four hours and has already surpassed the common 25,000 plateau for the majority of White House petitions.

White House petition"We demand that Mr. Morgan be deported immediately for his efforts to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national television host to stage attacks against the rights of the American citizens," the petition continues.

Morgan responded by reminding Americans that he is not attacking the Constitution and feels like a ban on only the large, assault-style military grade weaponry would not infringe on the rights of the American people. He also quipped that it was ironic that, in their zeal to defend the Second Amendment rights, the petitioners are asking for America to infringe upon Morgan's First Amendment rights.

On Twitter, Morgan also had one more message for Americans who wish to see the British ex-pat deported: "Bring it on."

I total agree with Anonypuss. Mostly because we don't want the puffed up tosser back. If the yanks won't keep him then we'll have to try and get him on a convict ship to Oz.

Hah! Burn at the stake, perhaps? But first: don't envy us raging anons... With the length of the captchas TVRage forces us to fill, we may well become novelists... And speaking of at-some-length *** No fan of Morgan here, but a couple of rednecks pout like little kids... With a f--ing petition, no-less. Hilarious non-issue. *** I am not sure there has been a country, in the history, of the world, that had one-of-every-100 of its people imprisoned (with the exception, perhaps, of Nazi Germany). Where the corporate archbeast rulers, indeed, is supplanting what were normative, living (non-caged) wage-paying jobs with these 25-cents-an-hour prison slave labour "jobs" (disproportionately draw from a population which historically where actually chattel and then sharecropping slaves - maybe, a word on that, Spike Lee, or is being a multimillionaire somehow erased these truths away?) *** Certainly, the level of violence, guns (unprecedented), and otherwise (also), as well as fear-of-violence, are alarming to those of us looking in (conservatively, ten-times the rates in the country where I live in). Not to mention, various bizarre and destructive exceptinalist tendencies, like having a huge portion of the population indoctrinated to view, as a frightening Orwellian prospect, having in place the same universal health care, which every-single-other-developed-country has had in place for half a century --in my country, one-card gets you in the hospital, for-free - whereas in the US, the amount of paperwork and bureaucratic redtape the average patient (and doctor) has to fill, is truly nightmarish (all for ten times the costs, and one-tenth of the coverage)... Or, where the wealth of half the country is held by less than 400 individual billionaires; Optimates, to whom ordinary human beings outside of their own alien sphere, are seen as worth less than ants... And a Drug War that is in place to never, ever end; set to fill these aforementioned prisons, so that these new Roman emperors can make use of a steady stream of (again, disproportionately black) slaves... And a War-for-Terror that is in place to also never end (if Al-K doesn't exist, it will be invented, which of course, it was; and, if a Saddam isn't an ally, he will be WMD'd What-the-f*ck Barbecued, which of course, he was, as was the country of Iraq)... *** All of that, and much, much more (indications of a societal sickness in the extreme, that is), and it is a call to _ban Assault Rifles_, that twists some fascists' panties?(!) Tragico-comical, with a hint of pathos. Merry Christmas!

I'm with MCW here. This whole thing is preposterous. I don't even like Piers Morgan, but it takes a profound amount of cognitive dissonance to rail against a guy for attacking your second amendment freedoms, while denying him his own first amendment rights. Not to mention that giving the government the power to deport someone for expressing an unpopular opinion opens a gigantic can of worms.

Don't you love hypocrites (I'm talking about those folks wanting to deport him - he's right... the first amendment was first for a reason...)
