Write a letter to the network, state I find the views of the commentator abhorrent and will no longer be watching their network. Then stop watching the network. If I encountered anyone espousing similar views I would argue the point with them, if it became a wider political thing, not just a talk show host, I would write my member of parliament, take part in rallies that sort of thing. You know engage in democracy.
I would not petition my government to deport/jail/punish them. This petition is idiotic and basically an appeal against freedom.
It's effective speech. The petition is the Pimp, the media is the Hoe. It doesn't matter what the speech is, and the fact the some of you find the petition unpopular, is the very speech the first amendment is meant to protect.
But you Gun-Control-Thirsty-Firsty's know that already...
