Gun Tweet of the Day: Piers Morgan Proves the Point Edition

Screen Shot 2013-12-21 at 3.27.49 PM

You know that old joke about the guy who asks a woman if she’d sleep with him for a million dollars? She says yes. “Would you sleep with me for $200?” “Of course not,” she replies. “What kind of woman do you think I am?” “We’ve already established that,” he answers. “We’re just haggling over price.” Same deal with gun control advocates. “Would you eliminate Americans’ right to own the same ‘weapons of war’ carried by the police and military?” “Yes.” “Would you forcibly disarm Americans?” “Of course not! What kind of people do you think we are?” “We’ve already established that. We’re just haggling over the timeline.”

    NAILED IT!

    1. avatar Ross says:

      Yes and then some.

    2. avatar Pyrotek85 says:

      It really is a matter of time. They’ll do whatever they think they can get away with, without upsetting the populace at large.

  2. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    Paraphrasing here;
    I may not agree with what you say, but I will fight to the death, for your right to say it….

    Of course organ breath wouldn’t understand that. He’s a subject, not a citizen.

    1. avatar Tomy Ironmane says:

      So are folks in many places in the US.

  3. avatar Matt in FL says:

    Yep, you pretty well summed it up, RF.

    That said, I’d rather talk about George Zimmerman than this pompous twit. He’s more relevant.

    Yes, I just said that.

    1. avatar Dirk Diggler says:

      yeah, he likes crazy broads who are probably WiLd in bed. . .

      1. avatar Daniel Silverman says:

        Mrs Watts aside that is even to looney for me lol

    2. avatar jwm says:

      Hey Matt, what do you think of the .40 S&W? I’d rather hear about that than GZ or PM. 2 fucktards that’re not worthy of our time.

      1. avatar Matt in FL says:

        I would refer you here for my thoughts on that.

  4. avatar Korvis says:

    That jackass, Martin Bashir, and others like them seem to be forming a vanguard of police-state disease vectors scurrying out of The Land Formerly of Hope and Glory. In coming years, we may need to re-think that “special relationship.”

    1. avatar John Dennis says:

      They just don’t know it yet, but that “special relationship” ended in 1776.

      1. avatar Chris says:

        and reaffirmed in 1812.

  5. avatar Sam Wright says:

    None of the other amendments would apply to people he disagreed with too in Morganland with King Piers the Great as lord and master.

  6. avatar MojoRonin says:

    Phil isn’t protected by the first, because the government wasn’t trying to violate his rights. Banning an AR-15 is done at the government level. That said, Phil is entitled to have his opinions based on his beliefs. Regardless, Phil also said he won’t disrespect someone because of their orientation…but the media with their constitutional protection fail to mention that part!

    1. avatar Hannibal says:

      True. I’m not sure if morgan doesn’t understand the situation with Phil or if he doesn’t understand the 1st Amendment. Either way, he’s a twit.

    2. avatar twency says:

      Phil is indeed protected by the First, though not from A&E. Because of the First congress is not permitted to pass a law outlawing what Phil said. Piers plainly wishes Phil (and everyone else who is not Piers Morgan-approved) did not enjoy that protection.

      1. avatar MojoRonin says:

        Yeah, as I said, first sentence, 2nd part: not the government that was limiting his freedom of speech rights, it was his employer, so the 1A don’t cover him. Which sucks; it’d be nice if all the amendments extended to the workplace – that’s probably too large of a can of worms to crack open!

  7. avatar racenutz says:

    If that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black I don’t know what is.

  8. avatar dph says:

    Now I know why the Illegals in this country think they should be allowed to stay here, they contribute more to this country than Piers Morgan (here legally I assume) ever could.

  9. avatar Ralph says:

    I’m pretty sure that this page will have more viewers than Pierced Organ.

  10. avatar Kerry says:

    He obviously doesn’t understand either…move along

    1. avatar Steve says:

      +1. It’s silly to expect an Englishman to understand America, just like it’s silly to expect an American to understand England.

  11. avatar tdiinva says:

    Piers is George III reincarnated.

  12. avatar tommyr says:

    Man I can’t stand that Piers moron. But he has the right to make a total ass of himself EVERY night! He’s a tool, and not even a useful one.

    1. avatar Hannibal says:

      Ah, but he doesn’t have the right to a cable show. Let’s hope they eventually realize what an idiot he is… or perhaps hope that his ratings tank enough that even that network gets rid of him as dead weight.

      1. avatar tommyr says:

        Sadly, American TV networks and audiences loves bullshit and phonies. They thrive on it for ratings. So this idiot will be on for quite a while unfortunatly. Pathetic but that’s the way it is here.

        1. avatar Jus Bill says:

          The six people who watch his show faithfully would probably agree with you.

    2. avatar 2hotel9 says:

      Actually no he does not. He is not an American, he is the property of the Commonwealth of Great Britain and as such has no rights.

  13. avatar jz78817 says:

    that sack of s**t should be unemployable after what he pulled while at The Mirror. That CNN gave him his own show just proves how worthless CNN is.

    1. avatar Jus Bill says:

      I think Scotland Yard still would like to have a chat with him if he ever returns. Some of the wiretap transcripts they turned over to GCHQ prove rather “awkward,” him discussing phone mail and email hacking and such…

  14. avatar JasonM says:

    If I remember correctly, the point of the first amendment is to protect popular speech, not unpopular speech.

    …or did I get that backwards…

  15. avatar 505markf says:

    I would suggest he has no true idea what “freedom of speech” is as it is not a protected right in the UK, nor in most European nations, including the western ones. While he does not appreciate the right, he is nevertheless fully willing to push it to whatever extreme he chooses.

  16. avatar great unknown says:

    Of course he considers the Robertsons vile bigots. He escaped from England to avoid getting involved in the BBC child molestation scandal. The one where major stars of the BBC were cultivating young [minor] children for their sophisticated sexual pleasure. Much more sophisticated than owning guns, chap. And the upper echelons of the BBC covered this up, while it was going on, for decades.

    Morgan refused to return to testify in person, although he did “testify” over a hookup from here.

    The current Chief Executive of the NYT was also embroiled in that piece of work. He denies any knowledge of what was common knowledge to everybody at his level of the BBC.

    To these people, even pederasty is considered acceptable, and has to be protected. Obviously, anybody who has any morals is a vile bigot.

    1. avatar Guy says:

      Morgan was also caught falsifying photos of British soldiers desecrating Taliban bodies, from what I understand.

  17. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

    Apparently, the gov’t should step in and strip people’s rights when Piers Morgan doesn’t agree with them.

  18. avatar Jesse Nelson says:

    Yyeeaahh… and if the US hadn’t foolishly protected Britain back in the 1940’s we wouldn’t have this loud mouth waste of skin on our planet.

    1. avatar Cliff H says:

      I’m pretty sure our protection of Britain in WW II had more to do with needing to use their island to invade Europe and their troops to back us up in the Pacific than it did with actually protecting Brits.

      1. avatar Unarmed & unnamed says:

        You mean the -Australian- troops right? I could be wrong but as far as I remember, England had nothing to do with the Pacific theater

        1. avatar Jason Lynch says:

          Depends where you draw “Pacific”, but one of the worst defeats the Japanese were handed was at Imphal-Kohima in 1944; from there, Bill Slim and 14th Army pushed them back out of Burma.

          We also had Tiger Force and the British Pacific Fleet active in support after VE-day, though two buckets of instant sunshine shortened the war and saved a few million lives…

          (oh, and Piers Morgan is a mendacious self-publicist with no redeeming features apparent, we’re so glad you’re willing to host him…)

        2. avatar Jus Bill says:

          We needed the Aussies and the Gherkas.

    2. avatar jwm says:

      England had cancelled the threat of German invasion before the US got into the war. Hitler helped make England safer when he turned his attention to Russia. Had America not entered the European war the iron curtain would have been at the English channel.

      The only real question is would Stalin have stopped at the channel?

      1. avatar Jason Lynch says:

        That water obstacle conveniently located southeast of Dover does help quite a lot, when defended by an adequately determined Navy.

        As St Vincent once said, and still true in the 1940s, “I do not say, my Lords, that the French will not come. I say only they will not come by sea.”

  19. avatar Delmarva Chip says:

    The protection of free speech isn’t about protecting speech everyone is happy with, Mr. Morgan. It’s about protecting the speech that is controversial.

    You really don’t get this “freedom” thing we push for here in the states, do ya?

  20. avatar H.R. says:

    He’s entirely wrong. I don’t agree with Phil Robertson’s statements, but his right to make them are protected by the First Amendment.

    Liberty doesn’t mean that I have to agree with everything that everyone else says or does.

  21. avatar Al W says:

    Let me figure this out…You could not say what you just said without the First Amendment so go back to the UK where you belong.

    1. avatar Jus Bill says:

      They asked us to keep him several times so far. They can’t stand him either.

      Hmmm – maybe Russia? They did take Snowden, after all.

  22. avatar JoshuaS says:

    I don’t think even the Brits can stand him. Greatest line ever from Penn and Teller Fool Us. At 3 minutes

  23. avatar FortWorthColtGuy says:

    He is still calling the AR-15 an “assault rifle”?

    He hates the 2nd Amendment. He hates the 1st. When people begin to think like this, they are only a few steps from invalidating the 4th, 5th and heck, even the 3rd.

  24. avatar jirdesteva says:

    ” …..vile bigots.”
    See what he did there ! This is the media state of mind.

  25. avatar Marine 03 says:

    I thought this British fool promised to go back to Londonistan if America wouldn’t change its gun laws? I’m sure I recall him saying that! Well, we didn’t change our laws….so…….?

  26. avatar Anonymous says:

    Piers doesn’t even understand the error he has made with that statement.

    Pier’s statements are bigoted. He feels he is right and we are wrong and he is intolerant of gun owners and gun rights. Then goes and says that the 1st amendment shouldn’t protect the statements that he himself made. What foolishness and irony.

  27. avatar Aharon says:

    Somewhere in America a feminist wants to legally ban the “old joke” RF used above.

  28. avatar Avenger1 says:

    Why is this BIGOT still in our country telling us what we NEED to do with our laws??

  29. avatar LJM says:

    Piers is just being who he is, a person that wants to be “subjected” to rule. A man of England.

  30. avatar DisThunder says:

    Seriously, do they still let him use Twitter unsupervised? CNN needs to look at their parental controls.

  31. avatar Cubby123 says:

    That idiot needs to be tarred and feathered and sent back to ” jolly ole England ” where he can the face charges that caused him to leave that “gun free zone”.

  32. avatar michael says:

    i cannot stand that lobsterback. Tar,feather and send back to Blighty, though I doubt they’d have him back.

  33. avatar shawn says:

    Why are you posting anything about the DB?

    1. avatar Wood says:

      He makes me laugh. Big M, little organ.

  34. avatar Phil says:

    First of all, Piers Morgan came to America, not the other way around. Second, why does anybody give two shits about what a guy that got famous judging Brits singing competitions? Third, I’ll be damned if I let a monarchist decide my rights. That guy should pack his effin’ redcoat bags. One right protects the rest, and heres proof of the agenda.

  35. avatar Ardent says:

    One has to wonder about someone criticizing someone for saying something controversial from a pulpit they gained and maintain by saying controversial things. I’d say the pot calls the kettle black but that’s not being fair to Phil who was most likely simply stating his mind while Piers is, I believe, hoping to latch onto a more popular and famous persons coattails in a desperate bid for relevance and exposure.

  36. avatar Guy From V says:

    Piers Morgan killed my cat.

  37. avatar Pete says:

    Hey Piers. I’ll give up my 2nd amendment rights if you give up your 1st. After all. The 1st amendment is outdated too. It was written at a time when the only means of reporting was lights in a tower.

    1. avatar 2hotel9 says:

      He has no rights, he is the property of the Commonwealth of Great Britain.

  38. avatar Bob says:

    Who the **** gave him an opinion!!!

  39. avatar 2hotel9 says:

    Pierced Organ is a vile bigot, and the best part is he CAN be silenced because he has no rights in America. His hate filled spew has no protections under America’s Constitution or laws, he is not an American. Time for him to be extradited to England for trial on whatever crimes he fled here to escape.

  40. avatar IdahoPete says:

    “…the 1st Amendment shouldn’t protect vile bigots.” Such as Piers Morgan?

  41. avatar Mediocrates says:

    Typical reaction of the anti-constitution bed wetters. Freedom is AWESOME until you exercise it in a manner of which I don’t approve.

  42. avatar Jus Bill says:

    Hey Washington, can’t somebody PLEASE revoke that azzhole’s work visa and deport him? SOON?
