In the aftermath of Alex Jones' disastrous interview with Piers Morgan on CNN, many of his sore sympathizers have made it more so apparent that they
want him deported out of the country. There was a petition made where 100,000 folks signed demanding Piers be departed, 100,000 individuals whom can't
handle an exercise of rights when it doesn't include them only. "He's not a citizen" they shout! "He's anti-american" they shout, as if these reasons
justify silencing him. So what does the first amendment actually say?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or

disagreed with him shows a complete lack of respect to the rights we are afforded in this country, it also shows a loser mentality. People can't deal
with what he says, so they want him taken away, and they want everybody to only listen to what they
have to say and what rights they
There is a segment of the population in this country that are becoming increasingly tyrannical in their line of thinking, it's becoming evidently
clear what kind of American the kind of people who sympathize with Alex Jones envision
When a democratic election does not go your way? Secede from the Union. Take your toys and leave because it didn't go your way.
When somebody says something you don't like on their air? Silence them, deport them, kick them out of the country.
When rulings like Lawrence v Texas, Brown v Board of education and Loving v Virginia reinforce rights afforded to individual Americans, cry foul and
an injustice to states rights, completely ignore the rights of the individual
Maybe it's time people also start looking into the mirror when they talk about tyranny, control, fascism.
