CNN’s Piers Morgan upset over White House petition calling for his deportation

CNN’s Piers Morgan is upset over a petition at the White House web site calling for his deportation, Twitchy reported Saturday.

“Ironic U.S. gun rights campaign to deport me for ‘attacking 2nd Amendment rights’ – is my opinion not protected under 1st Amendment rights?” he tweeted.

The petition, created on Friday, cites his relentless attacks on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

“British Citizen and CNN television host Piers Morgan is engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment,” the petition reads. “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.”

    Don’t necessarily agree with Alex Jones all the time, but I like his sense of style. (They started the petition).

    Go back to your backwards muzzie-infested wet rag of a country, you snotty Brit D-bag. You’re not a citizen? You have no rights, 1st amendment or otherwise.

    1. Alan Hesketh says:

      your 2nd amendment was drafted from from the English bill of rights ,u muppet , you have in your country freedom of speech ,so PIERS is excercising that freedom, (a right may I add, has.nt taken the lives of 20 innocent children) so you want him out, as it does,nt suit your moronic argument ,
      The rest of the world shakes its head in disbelief that states “only in America”.
      Wake up you idiot,s.

      1. Jennifer says:

        Just for your info, our bill of rights is for citizens here. Also, the 2nd did not cause the deaths of 20 innocent children you ignorant pos. The psycho that did it did not legally own the hand guns. He stole them. Also, please tell me why the countries that do allow and require their teachers to be armed do not have this issue, like Israel? Also, even if he hadn’t stolen them, he would have found another way to do what he wanted and it probably would have been much worse. Another thing to think about. In China, where they are not allowed to own any firearms, a man went into a preschool and killed a whole bunch of children with just a knife. Stop attacking our rights. You will not succeed……

      2. Rod Diaz says:

        What a dolt. The “right” itself cost no lives, which is the entire point. Need I point out that guns themselves do not kill, and anyone disturbed enough to perpetrate a tragedy such as Sandy Hook would not be deterred by the law. They are already committed, clearly, to breaking several laws. Firearms offenses are small potatoes compared to mass-murder. This fool has no respect for a fundamental part of his host country’s Constitution. Besides, what would be the difference? He should welcome the opportunity to go home. Don’t tell me CNN doesn’t have a studio in the UK? If he’s so disgusted with the laws here, he’s welcome to leave.

    So let me get this straight, a Brit, who comes from a country that doesn’t really respect individual rights. Oh they get antsy about every 500 years or so but right now in one of those collective hive modes…comes to the US and uses a public medium to rant about changing the US way of living…(hmm..didnt we come bail them out twice recently)…then when he gets attacked whines about his rights..how ironic…..in his perspective rights that you have and value dont matter cause the collective good demands they be violated and ended but when attacked (verbally) for that view, said tool, starts to screech about his rights. Hey ass, the only reason you have rights is cause MEN (and women) WITH GUNS stood up to tryants to seize back those rights….some day when the mullahs kick you out of your own country you might be grateful to come to a country that still has guns…

  4. SteadyTeddy says:

    Ignore him. He is irrelevant! Let the few who are watching him form they’re own opinion and quit talking about him. He’s not even a good reality show host.

  5. Rick Dennis says:

    Mr Morgan,
    Haul your Limey axx back to your socialist nightmare England and butt out of America’s business. You and your opinions are not wanted or needed here. GET OUT! You would have America turned into your homeland? Go back to your homeland and live under it’s laws and rules if you like it so much. Don’t come HERE and try to change America into what suits YOU. GET OUT! You sir are the absurd imbecile. Your opiniions are worthless and even moreso, useless. GET OUT! GO BACK TO ENGLAND! YOU ARROGANT POMPUS ASS!

  6. mickey_moussaoui says:

    The web site for the petition stopped working. I suppose obama supporters turned it off. They wouldn’t want to hear from REAL Americans on this issue

  7. vera says:

    Ah, brainless, self-centered snobby individual. Just like our dear leader, he will pick and choose some of amandments to accept and some to reject.

  8. K.Rosen says:

    Pierce Morgan,,,,,Has no rights here he is not a citizen and should not make comments .
    He was rude and miss informed. He dosents even know that England crime rate jumped 600% after there gun grab. What about the English man who kep a shot gun who killed 1 and wonded another breaking into his home in the middle of the night. As a guest he should keep his openions to his self. K.Rosen

  9. Jennifer says:

    He is not a citizen in our country and does not have the luxury of excersizing the 1st. Also, he has no right to attack our 2nd. Also, it is really interesting that our government is picking which petitions to allow, of course, one that shows that a lot of us real Americans want to keep our 2nd and that we want someone deported for trying to invoke anger and hatred towards us, to be deported, would be removed. We the people are speaking and will not lie down and just let it be stripped from us.

  10. Angela Manser says:

    I am a middle aged female teacher and thank god I live in England. I can’t even work the dvd recorder properly let alone shoot a gun. Are you all mad!!!
