Confirmed: Piers Morgan doesn’t get how these constitutional amendment thingies work

In what might be the most obvious tweet of the day, CNN’s Piers Morgan confirmed that he has no clue what this First Amendment thingamajig is all about.

According to Piers, he and fellow gun-grabbers should be free to spout uninformed nonsense about the Second Amendment’s little-known musket penumbras and emanations. Indeed, he’s free to parade his ignorance and nothing has stopped him from doing plenty of that this week in his defense of Bob Costas’ anti-gun lecture.

But criticizing his pro-gun control speech in return? That’s trampling his right to free speech.

Quite the special snowflake, isn’t he? Or maybe, just maybe, he hasn’t quite grasped how this Constitution stuff works. Givers that they are, conservative Twitter users were thrilled to provide Musket Morgan with a remedial lesson on exercising our First Amendment rights.

Musket? That’s not a Piers-approved nickname. First Amendment violation!!11!!

C’mon, guys. Stop using the power of the state to silence Musket Morgan! With the way you’re all but disappearing his national television platform, it’ll make him think he’s back in the U.K.

And thank God for that.

    Why is Piers Morgan even relevant at all?

    • Seewetoldu

      Hes not, But you get Bob Costas gives a lecture on gun control during a Sunday Night Football game ..that is unacceptable. And then the next day Piers gives his useless and thoughtless opinion on how brilliant Bob Costas speech was doubling down on gun control ignorance. I think they should both be fired.

  • RblDiver

    Silly conservatives, clearly we’ve not read the “You can’t insult me, but I can insult you, nyah nyah” Amendment (which comes after the “Everyone is special, but some are more special than others” Amendment).

    • orringtonmom (D)

      i believe that amendment is right next to the word ‘muskets’ LOL. still the best STFU response ever.

      • Penny Robinson Fan Club

        That IS an instant classic.

    • Finrod Felagund

      Liberals have had two standards for a very long time now; one for them (e.g. they can say anything they want), and another for everyone else (how DARE they criticize me).

  • justlittlolme

    LOL! I pointed out to him yesterday that the 2nd had no restrictive clause, so NOW he whines about his 1st Amendment rights?
    Hey Piers, the right to speak doesn’t mean you have a right to be agreed with! What exactly DID you plan on using to protect that 1st Amendment right with, anyway? A rolled up newspaper?

    • therantinggeek

      Well, as long as it’s not the Chicago Tribune of Thwappage, Sunday Edition… >.>

      • justlittlolme

        LOL! He probably couldn’t even wrap his little girly hands around that monstosity!

        • therantinggeek

          Oh, I’m sure he could, but since it’s a bit on the heavy side he’d be lucky to land a hit on every third or fourth swing. #justsayin

    What a Libtard.

  • Tyler

    Go cover Kate’s pregnancy sissy boy

  • GTJessop

    He totally sucked on Remington Steele.

    • stuckinIL4now

      Unless you’re making a joke, you have Morgan confused with Pierce Brosnan who was on Remington Steele. Morgan was still a teenager when that show was on.

  • Tyler

    There is a reason the gun amendment comes right after free speech. It’s not a coincidence

  • Dawgfan70

    The gift that keeps on giving. @piersmorgan

  • Shawn Smith

    Morgan is not alone on this. Quite a few liberal celebrities seem to be under the impression that the first amendment means they can say whatever they want and *must not be criticized for it*. It’s just part of the standard ego package.

    You’re free to say whatever you please, and we’re free to call you a pack of useless, lying, amoral morons. That our First, folks.

  • stuckinIL4now

    I gotta a snarky thanx to the Donald for foisting this guy on the American public not only for letting him compete on that stupid celebrity apprentice show but for letting him win it and now we have to put up with his idiocy all over the place.

  • Guest

    Morgan ought to take his liberal a** back to the UK. I thought we kicked the royality British out of these united States in 1783

  • Jack Deth

    Since when do Brits have the right of free speech?

    If the Brits do have the right of free speech, then what is a D-Notice?

  • EOD

    Liberals never could grasp the whole Constitution concept.
    Liberals also have trouble with reading comprehension.
    Liberals believe the Constitution has an Amendment covering the right of Abortion, and then believe that the Second Amendment means Citizens have the right to shoot bears with Muskets and keep the Arms

    • Hiraghm

      Well, there would be an Amendment covering the “right” of Abortion, were Abortion a right. (that’d be the mostly overlooked 9th Amendment). Until murder becomes a right, Abortion won’t be protected by any part of the Constitution.

  • sleazyrider

    I beg to differ…Joe Biden is the dumbest human on earth..but clean cut and articulate …

    • Hiraghm

      not all that articulate…

  • peteee363

    like the troll was asking yesterday, where do you draw the line between the first and second amendments? you are free to speak (as stupidly as you want piers), and i am allowed to arm myself.

  • r_coplin2001

    Piers Morgan has the right to state his opion under the 1st Amendment but under the same 1st Amenment we have the right to critizise him when we think he is wrong.

    • origionalwinja

      wait… when we “think” he is wrong? LOL i KNOW he is wrong. everything musket morgan holds dear and believes in is pure evil, dumb, and wrong. but otherwise i must agree with you good sir

  • Streetiebird

    Piers Morgan gets more attention from the rightwing than anyone else apparently. You all are keeping him in a job.

  • louisiana_mom

    I see Piers is using the Left’s understanding of the First Amendment… Where they think free speech means everyone who hears them should agree with them.

  • JackD

    He actually said this (mixture of speaking and mumbling) while leading up to a question two nights ago:
    US military is “licensed to use all sorts of weaponry”. Maybe he thinks we hand out licenses over here like 007’s license to kill.
    He should go hang out in Home Depot and hope all the other tools provide camouflage for him.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      The Brits are just a whole frekkin’ lot of stupid. Freedom just plum evades them.

      • Zane Henry

        there is 1 video camera for every 25 people in the UK. Every person can expect to be filmed or snap-shot every 5 seconds. The same country where a burglar can sue you if he injures himself while stealing your stuff. Nope, they have no concept of privacy or freedom.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      The Brits are just a whole frekkin’ lot of stupid. Freedom just plum evades them.

    • origionalwinja

      OMFG!! “He should go hang out in Home Depot and hope all the other tools provide camouflage for him.” almost crapped my self when i read that… FELL OUT OF THE CHAIR LITERALLY!!! that was one of the best things i have read in a LONG time.. i will be tweeting this one for sure!!

      • JackD

        You made my day, James. Clueless Piers showing up night after night on a once major cable network just invites mockery from us. It seems like they gave him a show and never bothered checking in to see what he is saying and doing on it.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Dear Penis Morgan: Free speech works like this: You’re free to say stupid things and we’re free to correct you. And if we really get tired of listening to your free speech, we can shoot you. 1st Amendment=Great!! 2nd Amendment=Frekkin’ Awesome!!!
    Get used to it, get over it, or go back to England. Either way, it’s all good!

  • ceemack

    The 2nd Amendment does not mean that Piers has the right to shoot at me and I can’t shoot back.

    The 1st Amendment works in much the same way.

  • ceemack

    The 2nd Amendment does not mean that Piers has the right to shoot at me and I can’t shoot back.

    The 1st Amendment works in much the same way.

  • Gallatin

    Since you’re not an American Citizen and you’re only here on a work visa, I’m not sure you have any rights under our Constitution. So if you don’t like us calling you on your blatant ignorance I suggest you go back to merry old England.

    • peteee363

      he might not want to head back home, since he might go to jail over that whole hacking scandal. he was neck deep into that mess over there! so he must stand there and take his hits from us over here, ha ha piers, DUCK!!

    • TomJB

      He does. The Constitution applies to all present, not just citizens. Biggest reason why Gitmo detainees should stay on leased Cuban land.

      Completely +1 for him going back to England.. if he can’t stand the heat…

  • Saltporkdoc

    Who hasn’t gotten it yet, Liberals are the only ones to whom the Bill of Rights (specifically the First Amendment) applies. Duh. But then, I don’t get why they make a big deal out of the Bill of Rights when, by their creed, The entire Constitution applies to NO ONE!
    Besides wasn’t Piers Morgen raised under a monarchy? Welcome home Piers!

  • kayakingfatso

    Oh those crazy Brits. They’ve nothing to offer but bad teeth and well, that’s it, really.

    • RightThinking1

      You might want to give Derbyshire and Stein a go…

    • JustLikeAnimals

      They invented the “tooth” brush because that’s apparently all anyone had to clean. “A” tooth.

  • Michelle

    Amendments are to Piersy what Math is to Barry – hard.

  • clgp

    Don’t group all the Brits together, my husband is British, he’s much smarter than Piers.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Not that great of a stretch. My Golden Retriever is smarter than Piers. =)

    • MawrPidyn

      “smarter than Piers” doesn’t narrow the field much at all.

  • BeeKaaay

    Leftwingwackos HATE the 2nd amendment because this means someone can defend themselves from thugs. And they HATE that. They want thugs to rule.

  • disqus_BktOMwqkBg

    Like Michael Moore, Piers Morgan contends that “The 2nd amendment was devised with muskets in mind, not high-powered handguns & assault rifles,” If that is the case, then the first amendment was devised with the moveable lead type printing press and the town crier, not radio or photography or television or moving pictures or the internet.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      I’d argue to them and rest of the interpreter crowd that the founders were referring to the most effective, relevant firearms of the time, and that as the Constitution lives on through time, that same standard still applies today. Simple enough. My semi-automatic Glock .40 cal is an effective, relevant firearm at the present time. In 50 years, it’ll be a laser gun, an EMP weapon, a low-frequency emitter, or some other hi-tech weapon de jour, and I hope my kids and grandkids each own eight or nine of them then!!!!

  • GTFOBigGovt

    Yeah, Piers because only King Obama gets to constitutionally denounce. These aren’t hard concepts, just hard trying to figure out how to fundamentally change them and get away with it.

  • Herman LaClair

    listening to these idiots excercising their 1st amendment rights makes me want to excercise my 2nd amendment rights.

  • bigal64

    Piers .. Gun Free England is calling !!! Oh yea … you can’t make a nickle over there ….

  • Tec Sg Beatty

    Well, Peirs, try taking them from us. Oh, and don’t wet your pants over the picture.
