Where the irish "childish" when they kicked your ass off the island? Nope, didn't think so!


It takes men to defend rights and privileges.

If this were truly going to happen, I say, "good riddance to bad British rubbish!"

There are too many things I could say right now about Piers Morgan and not a single one of them is positive.

Let's face it, even if he were taken off the air, he would only be replaced by yet another rabble-rousing, ill-informed moron.

im wondering why America would put someone one the air that is not from america, talking about how america should be, but i guess since the queen has more sway in this country than the president it does make sense.

Diversity of opinion has no merit?

What backwoods, small minded, egotistical thinking would demand nobody outside with any view not fully in line with whatever propaganda is being pushed should have air time?

Meanwhile, Orly Tatiz is still riding high on the alex jones nutjob group.


diversity is great, that's what America is founded on, America was also founded on constitutional rights, so when a outside opinion try to sway millions of Americans to give up there constitutional rights it makes me wonder. do u thinks the English would love and openly respect the opinions of a true blue American cumming over to England and getting on the tele saying

"hey English i think you should get rid of your queen and her whole family, cause times have changed and i think you dont need a queen or a monarchy system any more".

and if you try and and say the queen and guns are not the same thing. your are 100 percent correct.

THE ENGLISH MONARCHY HAS KILLED WAY MORE PEOPLE THAN MODERN ASSAULT RIFLES

American media is constantly telling the world how to live overall...you don't see the world (or at least the western world) flipping out everytime a clint eastwood movie or something to the like comes around.

Here is the issue I see. Piers has a viewpoint that many disagree with..thats fine..he also speaks a view many agree with. I see this one person, whom has the stage that millions watch, is fully allowed to speak his mind on anything, be it removing the crazy armed public, to maybe putting a bit more flexibility to include westboro Baptist church as hate speech and stop their antics.

That second bit, I don't know his views on..just yanked that out of left field for consideration...He is one man voicing his opinion on a thing regardless of size..and most sane people would also love a fantasy environment where we could shut those nuts up once and for all legally...but facts are facts..we have the first amendment that protects them, and the second amendment that protects gun owners...so piers talking about banning guns is akin to anyone else talking about banning speech...even if the example is fully understandable, the reality is, its just a wish and dream game..politicians are constitutionally bound to protect the constit. If they move over that line, the scotus makes quick work of such nonsense (and the aclu)..so we have guardians regardless of the current thoghts on anything.

Now

What is going on currently is a segment of the population is trying to stop the free speech of a individual because they disagree with his thoughts...so trying to have him deported, his career harmed, etc...because they disagree..with his idealistic society vision that will simply not come into fruition.

That to me are the ones most threatening my personal sitting at my desk freedoms. Its a movement that must flop..and in my personal opinion, those deport signatures should be the ones removed from this country for not understanding the first amendment. For this reason alone I am fully in Piers's corner (like that matters)..not for what he says, but for his right to say it.

This McCarthyism bullsnip has shown enough of its ugly head from the traitorous mud hole it crawls out of for me to have enough..time to get a shovel and smack that back down into the dark hole it belongs. You may not agree with Morgan's views..but you should be screaming loudly about how you would die to defend his right to say it..and not demand deportation to a legal resident.

Either we have these ideals, or we don't...you can't decide to stand for principles only when someone is agreeing with you.

Besides, Morgan is a conservative...with the exception to gun control..he is pretty right wing leaning..I find it amusing that many whom are wanting to crucify him are ultimately trying to smash one of their own verses come up with an elegant response to his views...has debate truly died in this country?

What if they offered you the job? Would you be better? Have a wider audience? Be the pinnicle of idealism and accuracy?

Wow, you are so off key it is unbelievable......I just watched the video.

Guy with glasses: "Piers, challenge Jones to a boxing match, show up with a semi automatic and pop him"
Woman: "Do it in uniform, I would love to see that"
Morgan: "I'll get my brothers uniform"

This was blatantly a joke in reference to Jones challenging Morgan to a boxing match before going off on a rage about semi automatic weapons.

Piers "I'll get my brothers uniform" was obviously a response to the cute womans statement.

If you can't see the joke in that then you are really clutching at straws.

I would not take the job to be honest. By going on camera and voicing his opinions, he opens himself to criticism (just as we do on these forums when we respond to a post, but to a vastly larger audience).

While I disagree with Piers Morgan, I would also most likely disagree with any other personality that replaced him on that network.

Would I do a better job than he does? Probably not, if you consider the fact that not everyone would agree with my opinions either.

My opinion of him is based on his voiced opinions and my view of those opinions. In fact, I knew nothing of the man until he opened his mouth regarding gun control. Be honest though, he is not on television to be a guiding light, he is there to garner ratings.

Being that I support the freedom of speech, I do not feel that the man should be deported or anything like that, but I will not be upset if the majority of public opinion managed to get him removed from national television.

Defend him if you like, but I will continue to disagree with him and will be thrilled when he is no longer administering heavy doses of progressive liberal anesthesia to the masses.

See, as far as being off the air due to low ratings..I agree.

I also would like to see that..

But that's for his conservative views being pushed forward...Mitt Romney will save America indeed.

See, what you don't know is that besides this one view on guns, he is otherwise a conservative

Well, actually, he is "british conservative", which across the pond is staunch conservative, but in the current environment of extremes here in the states, he is varied..but ultimately he plays to his conservative roots.

so...just to make sure I understand this then...

if you have a single view that is not lock step with conservatism, then your a liberal..be it gun control, religion, fiscal matters, nationalism, etc...any minor step out and your some sort of flower power new age socialist...gotcha.

I don't see much hope for conservatism in a growing complex world where people realize they are allowed to have various opinions outside of a narrow script. Well, it was a good run..almost 100 years..so ya...footnote in history mind you, but still...lasted longer than spandex anyhow.

It's only a bloody book, half of you lot harp on about how you don't understand why Muslims get so offended at Koran burnings, yet you whinge and moan when someone slams a load of paper on a table?

You harp on about free speech, yet you cry foul when someone says something you don't agree with? News flash pal, free speech is global, not just American.

All I see is a bunch of hypocrites that are so blinded by your oh so precious second amendment that you are forgetting one of the the very important parts of the first amendment.

Yes Piers Morgan is an idiot, we have dealt with his smug, arrogant attitude long before you guys even heard of him, and quite frankly, we don't want him back. But for crying out loud, listen to yourselves! If you can't handle what he is saying, change the channel......we did.


well said
Blame CNN not the latest Brit to play the bad guy...
this thread did make me chuckle though

In my opinion, in this country (the united states) true conservatism is all but dead.

A single liberal view does not a liberal make, but his dogged promotion of that liberal view certainly should call into question how much of a conservative he actually is.

Besides, he is a "conservative" on CNN, I wouldn't exactly take him for much more than a network shill in the first place.

So, do you think anyone who says something you don't agree with should be silenced?

What is it you're afraid of?

Star for that. right on.

This is why the first amendment was made to begin with, and arguably the most important amendment..because everyone does feel that way...shut that person up who says something you disagree with.

No jones is not a douche. He is one of the few honest men telling the truth as he sees it


Your right on that...the truth as he sees it....but...

Probably not a very good argument to use while defending Alex Jones.

The truth....Alex Jones....unlikely...

i agree with you that he has the right to free speech, and i dont think he should be deported because of his spoken words,

i just dont know why so many so many Americans believe in his opinions on American constitutional rights. and why cnn hired him and not an American to do the same thing he is, besides the fact he is articulate and well spoken.

but than i remember he is an nwo puppet that is forced to go out there and say these thing, the nwo wants our guns, and peers is a apart of that movement, that's why i want him deported, but i know that if was some other jakel would fill his spot and the masses would still be influenced by one of the biggest propaganda machines to ever be known in our recent history.

You know how to resolve this? Throw out your television sets, stop listening to Jones and enjoy your life.

There is NOTHING any of you can do. We're controlled by the Elite as soon as we leave the womb. So if you want to spend your very LIMITED time on this planet in fear, worrying, stressing, hating and hovering in this low vibration then.....so be it.

But for the rest of you who really want to break free from this matrix of fear and control.........stop listening to others.
Whatever will happen will happen. We create our own small existence so like I said, might as well make the best of our blink-of-time here and enjoy all that's free.

Screw television. I can't believe those who feel they're in the know (by protecting their Rights) and listening to Alex Jones.... still fall prey of corporate America via the air waves. And listening to AJ is no better.
Seems very contradictory.

You mean to tell me that when you hear someone say something that you truly feel is wrong, inside your head you don't say "Oh, shut up already!" ?

I know you are - but what am I?

:-)

That all you got Professor?

I asked our OP a real question - and now I'm asking you the same question

You want to lower the bar - that's up to you. It hurts your credibility - but that's your call

If I ever told someone I was listening to to just shut up (even if it was just in my head) it would be a very different thing from my actual philosophy about free speech

Now - what do you say? Do you actually want to silence all those who disagree with you?

You know - aside from that momentary bit of satisfaction we all get from shouting at our televisions?
