Yes, he really did. Last night, “Bullies” author Ben Shapiro had Piers Morgan on the defensive over the Second Amendment. Backed into an intellectual corner, Morgan lashed out at Shapiro’s “little book,” otherwise known as the U.S. Constitution.

        The frustrating thing for me is that I’m trying to become a citizen of the United States, but I’m mired in the Greencard process because the economy sucks. There are people DYING to come to America – admittedly, it’s not so drastic for me but I definitely want to stay and contribute. Still, we have a political class that either takes their country for granted or hates it all together. Americans are the most generous, hard working people I know. So many have welcomed my wife and I to this country and keep praying that we’ll soon get our Greencards so we can stay. And then this Asshat has the gall to tell Americans that their founding documents don’t mean anything? First, I would NEVER say that to an American. Second, that “little book” is the founding of the greatest nation in the world, and they are NOT documents to be taken lightly.

        Sorry for the rant – this just makes me so angry that some people don’t get how great this country is that it could open it’s doors to this Asshat and give him the opportunities he takes. Instead, he hides behind the very same “little book” to espouse his nonsense.

    How could Musket even begin to comprehend the importance of the U S Constistuion? Since Britan does not have a single Constitutional document guaranteeing indivdual rights like those in the U S Constitution.

    • NelsonsRightArm

      Hate to break it to you put Britain has several documents that guarantee individual rights, most of which were passed long before the USA existed. America does have a lot of freedoms that are to be admired but the U.S. constitution was based on English Common Law.

      The Magna Carta (1215) guarantees the right to due process, the Habeas Corpus Act (1679) ensures that all people being held by the State have to be brought before a court, the Petition of Right (1628) prevents the Head of State from levying taxes without Parliament’s authorisation and the Bill of Rights (1689) protects freedom of speech.

      • political correctness czar

        Hate to burst your bubble mate, but in Jolly Olde England, the common people no longer have the rights that you mentioned. The rights you speak of have all been transferred to The State and immigrants with No Go Zones and have zero desire to assimilate. The general population has been disarmed and is at the mercy of street thugs and criminal government bureaucrats. Any Englishman worth his salt would admit that Our Little Book is the real deal. Cheers.

        • NelsonsRightArm

          We must have awfully polite street thugs considering our murder rate is at a 30 year low, having fell by 14 percent year-on-year & our violent crime rate has dropped.

          I can confirm the Fox News reports of tyranny & no go zones across the pond are exaggerated and that the Rights of Englishmen lives on in Jolly Olde England.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Given that the UK violent crime rate for 2011 was 3524/100k vs. the US rate of 386/100k, your street thugs are evidently 10x more IMpolite than US ones.

          • NelsonsRightArm

            Firstly, that’s a misleading figure. There is much higher population density in the UK than the USA. Only 10 American states have a bigger population than London so of course the crime per 100k is going to be higher. If you were to remove the smaller states like Maine then America’s crime per 100k will shoot up. If you compare New York’s murder rate per 100k it’s 5.6, whereas in London it’s 1.6.

            Secondly, 2012 saw a big drop in the violent crime rate. In fact all crime besides theft & pickpocketing fell last year.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Not misleading at all – taking the rate per 100k averages out the population density differences. You’re trying to put the best face possible on a horribly bad statistic, and I don’t blame you. Of course, your lot *doesn’t* do the same when you’re told that the overwhelming majority of gun crime is due to gangs or inner-city criminals shooting each other, now do you? You know, sort of like your condescension above about your ‘oh-so-polite’ street thugs.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Oh, and as an FYI? Comparing NYC and London, two cities of comparable population:

            Violent crime
            NYC (2011)(FBI UCR):
            51209 violent crimes
            Rate: 623 per 100k

            London (Nov 2011-Nov 2012)(Metro Police):
            155527 violent crimes against the person
            Rate: 1902 per 100k

            Add in the rape/robbery that violence against the person doesn’t include, and the London rate per 100k becomes 2390 – almost 4 times that of NYC.

            Oh, forgot to mention – NYC has *twice* the population density of London.

          • Hiraghm

            Math is hard… on liberals.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            He’d really hate to find out that those 10 states that he mentions (actually 11, now) average out to a violent crime rate of 391 per 100k.

          • Hiraghm

            So you’re saying that crowding people together causes crime? So the Romans were doing the Jews a favor with the diaspora?

          • Infinite_Indeterminism

            That would appear to be his defense of his peaceful, British haven, yes…

            The one part of that that has some semblance of relevance, is that crooks tend to seek places that have a large “market” in a small space, and that simultaneously are easy to hide out in, between “jobs”…

      • Steve_J

        All of them can be easily changed unlike the U S Constitution.

        • NelsonsRightArm

          I agree they are easier to change unlike the U.S. Constitution but it would still be incredibly difficult to remove civil liberties. For example, if the Government wanted to remove the right to due process then it would have to get the approval of the House of Commons, which is highly unlikely as MPs often rebel against their own political party. If it managed to get past the Commons then it would need the support of the House of Lords. Then the U.K. Supreme Court would need to rule whether it is compatible with British law.

          At the end of the day if the Government managed to remove civil liberties through legal means the British people would rebel. The Baron’s Wars, the Peasants’ Revolt, the English Civil War, the Glorious Revolution and the Chartists General Strike are just some of the actions taken by the British people against a lack of rights/infringes by the State.

          • Hiraghm

            uhm… The British government, and the U.S. government… neither one can REMOVE RIGHTS. “Civil liberties” whatever they may be, maybe. But rights come from God, not a piece of paper, not a crowned oaf.* Our Constitution merely protects them for us.

            *(referencing George III, not Elisabeth II, whom I greatly respect).

          • Steve_J

            Rebel with what?

      • Hiraghm

        It was based upon a LOT of things, among them British common law, and such things as the 12 Tables of the Roman Republic.

        What do you expect? They were British.
        What it did NOT bring from British common law was the concept that governments rule by the consent of the governed. That Obama, Reid, Boehner, et al are *our* employees.

    i will see your useless monarchy, and raise you one little book!

    • Canadian in USA

      Nice one!

    • Carenski

      The British monarchy is far from useless, don’t be so ignorant. The Queen is a descendant of King David and they hold the seat till Jesus comes to whom it belongs. It’s stupid to deny the US Constitution and it’s just as stupid to deny the God-given right of the British monarchs to reign.

      • Catchance

        Wait. The British monarchy is precisely why the Pilgrims moved out of there… for religious freedom, which they didn’t have under the king. The Church of England didn’t allow freedom of religion; it was their way or the highway. The Pilgrims chose the highway.

        Just because the Queen is a descendant of King David doesn’t mean that she’s going to be part of Jesus’ reign on earth. That’s an individual decision that each of us makes. (It doesn’t mean she won’t be, just that it’s a personal decision.)

        • http://www.chaosandcritters.com Ella Halligan

          That would make the Queen of England Jewish, which she isn’t. Either this was an attempt at a joke by Carenski, or it’s the most pathetic piece of self-delusion I’ve seen since, well, since Piers Morgan.

          • Catchance

            Nah, Carenski chose to believe some of the wackier sites; there are several articles out there that assert that QE is a descendant of David. I just didn’t feel like getting into a totally different argument, although perhaps I should have.

      • peteee363

        i forgot that part of history, when the family of king david packed up the buick, and drove to london. but what about the king of france, spain, russia, and luxemburg? were they also relatives too? and if you are correct, were the founders of our country devil worshipers, or athiests? god didn’t put them in the throne, the lucky sperm club did!

    • bonnieblue2A

      Our Constitution affirms already existing natural rights of all mankind. That governments may fail to recognize them or may seek to restrict or abolish them makes them no less real or valid.

      The newly formed states saw the right to keep and bear arms as so important to guard against the tyranny of government that they emphasized it with the directive “shall not be infringed” when drawing up the Bill of Rights.

    • Rick Reggio
