Piers Morgan desecrates American flag on Independence Day; Patriots spank

Musket Morgan’s Independence Day tweet-trolling didn’t end with a “deep, abiding regret that George III couldn’t keep his s**t together.”

Patriots spanked Musket Morgan for disrespecting flag etiquette:

In fairness to Morgan, we must acknowledge his respect for the American flag (which he holds dear because it has one star representing each of his viewers), but we hope Morgan found this lesson in flag etiquette useful so he doesn’t make the same mistake next year.

    I believe flag etiquette dictates a ritual cremation after this?

      Of Morgan, right?

      • CatHerder

        Why would you think otherwise?

  • demoivre

    Ok, he is oblivious to flag etiquette. He is a fool, I don’t like him at all but his intentions look genuinely good this time (to me at least). I’d let it slide.

    • SideshowJon36

      Actually, he was mocking Conservatives who “wrap themselves in the Flag” as the expression goes. So his intentions were to be a snarky ass

      • wackypacky

        Spot on!

    • Ironhawk86

      Well I certainly don’t agree with statement as I have long been convinced Piers Morgan didn’t have an ounce of good in him but I could never downtick someone with Rainbow Rising as their handle pic.

  • no good deed

    He actually wrapped himself in the flag. Too bad he doesn’t believe in the nation for which it stands.

    • ArmyRetPat

      Where’s a flag burning Jihadi when you need one?

  • Canadian in USA

    Saw an small American flag sitting on the ground in an empty cube at my office (probably about the size large postcard). Picked it up, made sure it was clean, and stuck it in my cube. I had a lot of people ask me where I got it. Once I told them, they were shocked because it shouldn’t have been on the ground (I agreed, which is why I picked it up and cleaned it up). I was always taught to respect your home country’s flag. Other visitors to this country should learn the proper respect to the American flag – a lot of people died to defend this country – DO NOT take it for granted.

    A village in Britain has just sent us a letter asking us not to return their idiot, please.

  • Garth Haycock

    Morgan seems to still be upset about the little incident 237 years ago.

    • therantinggeek

      You’d think…

    • shimauma

      The sad part is that we are still being taxed without proper representation. A gutless congress that doesn’t read bills before they pass them are definitely not proper representation.

      • iconoclast33

        In all fairness, they only said “representation”, they didn’t qualify it with the word proper. Back then it was common sense to assume it would be “proper”. Not anymore.

        • shimauma

          That’s why I added the word “proper” seeing as today’s society is VERY lacking in common sense, especially our RINO representatives.

          • iconoclast33

            Agreed. I am a “Wacko bird” fan. I voted for Ted Cruz.

  • Smokey Behr

    Can’t we just deport him already?

    • radishthegreat

      So much for his promise to self-deport if we didn’t change our laws to suit him, eh?

  • Steve_J

    What makes him think we want him joining us.

    • sardiverdave

      Because of what it says on the bottom of the Statue of Liberty.

  • John W.

    I pray that Megyn Kelly gets the primetime slot opposite Piers. He will probably consider it humiliating to be trounced in the ratings by her.

    • iconoclast33

      Liberals do make the most impressive misogynists. Impressive how they are able to separate what they say from what they do and see no hypocrisy in it. But then again, that is another quality in which they excel. Total lack of self awareness.

    Well played, Twitchy. Well played.

  • TocksNedlog

    They can drape that flag over the coffin containing his show.

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Nah… That deserves a Union Jack! Jawamax 8<{D}

    why was he trying to beat ’em before giving up to join ’em?

    Someone better tell Mama Grizzly.

    • rogueco

      she should absolutely know better.

      This has always irritated me about Olympic athletes as well. Just because people from other countries wrap themselves in their flags, that is NOT what Americans do.

      There was even controversy this past year when London Olympic officials asked each nation dip their flag. Our flag lowers for no one.

    • L R

      I don’t believe for one minute that this photo is real. I’m certain it was photo-shopped or something because Sarah Palin would never wear the American flag like that! Never!

      • Obama Go Home!

        They’re both real. Look it up if you don’t believe me jackwagon.

      She’s NOT a PIECE of CRAP like Musket Morgan….And, she’s pretty hot.. Jawamax 8<{D}

    Wrap a turd in the flag and it is still a turd.

  • tops116

    What are the odds he actually stole that flag from a high school or something?

  • Axelgreaser

    WHY DOES EVERY BLOG SPOT INSIST ON RUNNING PIERS MORGAN STORIES! Who cares!? This is just FREE promotion for this nit wit! I don’t get it.

  • LegalizeShemp

    The flag should not come into contact with fecal material like Pierced Organ either.

  • KansasGirl

    O needs to send Piers back to England instead of Winston Churchill’s bust.

  • notenoughtime

    Please give this man a one way ticket out and back to his native England if, of course, they want him back!

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Better: Give him A one-way ticket to the British Colony in Antarctica….And Take his clothes before he gets off the boat/plane/whatever. Jawamax 8<{D}

    Morgan please learn Flag code for our United States of America!

    I seem to recall many more posts against LiL Wayne’s desecration of the American flag at the same amount of time.

    Unfortunately for the appalled here, Andrew Breitbart did a photo shoot doing the exact the same thing. http://www.michaelgrecco.com/wp-content/uploads/andrew-breitbart-by-advertising-photographer-michael-grecco-01.jpg

  • RockyFjord

    If Americans were made to follow flag protocol, they would all be arrested. Look at how much clothing has flags on it or seemingly made from flags, stars stripes etc.
    It’s all stupid, no one gives a rat’s a– about it. The flag is filthy with blood and sod
    anyhow, due to US foreign and domestic policy, including spying on everybody.

  • Garth Haycock

    It’s not the flag that Americans love, but what the flag represents.

  • EOD

    The US Flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing

  • TocksNedlog

    You don’t love the flag of YOUR country?

  • DrEvil007

    The flag represents the country not the government, not the State. Those who love their country the most merely tolerate the State, while those who truly worship the State do not actually love the country. I expect you fall in the latter category.

  • tops116

    So, you’re not patriotic towards your country and you have no regard whatsoever for any symbol of freedom? After all, by your own admission, your comment was derogatory towards anyone that feels differently. I note that you didn’t bother to qualify your comment either. I guess anyone that even salutes the flag or acknowledges that it exists is a state-worshiper according to Levi Russel.

    Oh well, good to know that you’re unpatriotic to your country and that you hate freedom. Clearly you’re parents hit the genetic jackpot with you.

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Well, no one DID ask, and your snark about “worship” is just wrong, so back to Troll class for you, Failboy.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    I think you misunderstand, Levi… We don’t “Love the State” as you put it, We love our COUNTRY! WE ARE PATRIOTIC, AND SUPPORT THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC GOVERNMENT (Even if we’re against those in office). And WE LOVE OUR FLAG, THE SYMBOL OF OUR FREEDOMS AND THE SACRIFICES MADE TO GET AND KEEP THEM!

  • Garth Haycock

    No it represents what this country is about…freedom. Although with the last administration and especially the current administration, that freedom is more and more limited.

  • Gary Rudick

    No, the flag represents the states (all 57 stars according to POTUS) and by extension the people -red, white, blue. The Great Seal (on a one dollar bill) represents the state (i.e. federal gov’t)

  • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

    “…and to the Republic, for which it stands…”

    Big difference between that and “the State.” The Republic is We the People.

  • ToyZebra

    The Obama “O” represents the State. The flag represents the country that our founding fathers gave us and that so many have died to protect. In my lifetime I have never seen us so divided between those would want to preserve America and those who want to deconstruct it.

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    NO it doesn’t. Don’t be obtuse.

    “and is itself considered a living thing”

    See, that’s when you start to sound like a weirdo.

    13 Stripes Represent the First 13 Colonies, which became First Original 13 States. Thirteen Colonies, the term used for the colonies of British North America that joined together in the American Revolution against the mother country, adopted the Declaration of Independence in 1776, and became the United States. They were New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. They are also called the Thirteen Original States.
    50 Stars Represents The 50 Sovereign States That Are In The Union To Date.
    Colors of The United States Flag –
    White As adopted from the flags of other countries, notably Great Britain, the colors had no special significance. Congress defined the colors but did not define the meaning of those colors, as they did for the Great Seal of the US:

    Red – hardiness and valor
    White – purity and innocence
    Blue – vigilance, perseverance and justice

    Other meanings attributed are : red (the blood of patriots), white (the ideal of truth) and blue (freedom, as represented by the sky and heavens).

    I wrote LIB*TURD*ian (ie a full of sh*t typical liberal). Get past your “publik skrewling” and learn to read.

  • NY2DC

    Here’s my point: The flag was adopted before the Constitution was ratified, or even written. The flag came way before the state. So how is it that the flag was representative of something that didn’t exist?
