Ironic U.S. gun rights campaign to deport me for 'attacking 2nd Amendment rights' - is my opinion not protected under 1st Amendment rights?—
Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 22, 2012
Heh. A petition created on the White House website yesterday calls for the Obama administration to “Deport British Citizen Piers Morgan for Attacking 2nd Amendment.” There are over 5,000 signatures.
Musket Morgan is beside himself over this assault on his First Amendment rights. Evidently he still doesn’t get how these constitutional amendment thingies work.
Did Piers not consider that maybe, just maybe, the petition uses the First Amendment to highlight the absurdity of his ignorant attacks on the Second Amendment? Whether intended that way or not, the petition did a bang-up job. Piers continues to demand that we defend his freedom of speech (read: don’t criticize him) while he engages in selective attacks on the Bill of Rights.
Self-awareness is so very hard.
Here’s the text of the petition:
British Citizen and CNN television host Piers Morgan is engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment. We demand that Mr. Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.
It’s also worth noting that Musket Morgan is awfully panicky at the mere suggestion of being sent back to the U.K. Could it be that things are pretty darn swell here in America where we have the Bill of Rights?
At any rate, looks like they’re not particularly eager to get him back across the pond:
Why, oh why, is Musket Morgan trampling Ann Coulter’s First Amendment rights by suggesting there are reasons to deport her?
Update: The deportation petition has now received enough signatures to elicit a response from the White House.
