You were quite vocal about your support of the petition, though.

And you must have forgotten to answer my question. Here it is again.

I am quite vocal in my opposition to Piers Morgan, maybe even as vocal as Piers is against our Second Amendment, cept I don't have a prime-time nationally syndicated talk show...just you guys!



I have already said a few times I just shared the petition, and I don't think he even can literally be deported.

Petition to deport Piers Morgan gains traction
It's a dispute involving some of our most familiar rights: The right to free speech, to bear arms, and to petition the government. This week, a group of American gun owners is taking on an imported TV personality and petitioning the White House to preserve some of these rights.

Since the mass school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, British-born cable news host Piers Morgan has lashed out at U.S. gun laws and pro-gun advocates. Those advocates have hit back by launching a petition, on the White House website "We the People," calling for Piers Morgan to be deported.

CBS News' Jeff Glor noted Thursday that more than 80,000 people had signed the petition, which accuses Morgan of engaging in a "hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution" by targeting their right to bear arms.

The Obama administration rolled out "We the People" in 2011, allowing anyone to directly petition the government. Petitions that garner 25,000 signatures in 30 days are promised a response from the White House. When President Obama introduced the platform, he said it would provide a forum for the "matters you care about the most." However, since the site launched requests have run the gamut from serious, to not-so-serious, to entirely absurd.

A petition that asks the federal government to "secure resources and funding" to build a Death Star by 2016 has garnered 32,000 signatures, enough to guarantee a response from the administration.

Glor also reported that multiple petitions request for states to secede from the U.S., and that a petition for Texas to withdrawal has more than 122,000 signatures.

While the movement to kick Piers Morgan out of the country may have support, the cable host is laughing it off. Morgan recently tweeted: "Merry Christmas! Even to those who want me deported."


oops, it's over 85,000 now.

anyhew, looks like ole Piers is gonna have to take a shot of Santorum! the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex

You're 4th option is exactly what you are guilty of.....using speech to kill freedom. So it's OK for you to do it but not others?

There was also an option "No, let him stay" up until a few minutes ago which was getting votes, I see it has been removed now.

There are limits- he is opposed to campaigning at the place of polling. Feel free to vote your mind, free from any influence he might try. This is now up to the people, and I'm going for the kill freedom ticket all the way.

I hate Piers Morgan more than any other nosy network idiot, but damn, if you can kick him out for his political beliefs, where does it end? Should everyone who questions the law be deported? If you want to turn the U.S. into a communist country, that's exactly the way to go!

Cmon, get in the spirit! We aren't really trying to kick him out, we are just making him not want to stay.....

Seems like the plan he outlined before this all started is coming to fruition. He's looking at every new petition signature as another dollar in his pocket.

Piers Morgan Would Rather You Hate Him Than Ignore Him
November 11, 2012

Piers Morgan rose from Britain’s tabloid swamps to fill one of the most coveted chairs in TV news, replacing Larry King at CNN in 2011. In the U.K., he’s seen by many as a publicity hound. In the U.S., his problem is being seen at all.

I think someone or something has the dirt on Piers, and as long as Piers does their/it's bidding, he will be the chosen one, but it doesn't end well for him.

This was the only time I liked Omarosa

I admit, I watched his show every night last week. I note, at the moment, Piers is on re-run from last week...

Crappy Tabloid newspaper editor, with any degree of legitimacy well past gone in the UK, moved to the US, gets a job based on his accent and a fair degree of media savvy (he ain't an idiot), plus his connections, gets cushy job pretending to be the kind of hard hitting interviewer that the UK is ok with, but is totally uncomfortable in a US media setting, seems to have caused uproar in the US over something that the pretty much everyone in the US and the rest of the world considers common sense, but causes a petition for him to be banned from the country by Texans.

TLDR: Nobody here likes him, but the one time he says something everyone else agrees with, he gets slammed.

This is one of the stupidest things I've seen...petitioning to deport a guy for what he says about gun control? Seriously? I mean, what he says is idiotic and the way he says it is idiotic and the way he talks down (or over) people who disagree with him is idiotic; but none of that is grounds for deportation.

Scotty says it's just symbolic, but even if that is so, it's still a stupid idea. There's much better methods of showing your displeasure with him than that. And what does this have to do with Glenn Beck's treatment by the liberals you keep talking about? We're not talking about Glenn Beck here, we're talking about Piers Morgan. Cry me a river.

It's only just begun with Piers. Later in time we will be able to look back and get a better perspective. Word is the guy who started this petition is from InfoWars. And anyways, like we weren't gonna talk about the petition here?

I'm sure the NRA is doing some things most of us won't hear about also, and other things will come, but I do not expect too many sponsors to start pulling out. Conservatives don't usually do that.
