::UPDATE:: Man who started petition has MELTDOWN on TV! Deport the limey bast@rd

Man behind ‘Deport Piers Morgan’ petition has meltdown on Morgan’s show

Alex Jones, the conservative talk radio host who launched a petition to deport CNN prime-time host Piers Morgan over the British citizen's views on gun control, had what you might conservatively call a wee bit of a meltdown during an interview on Morgan's show Monday night.

Jones, whose petition has generated more than 100,000 signatures since being posted last month on the White House's "We The People" website, lashed out at Morgan over his public calls for tighter gun regulations in the wake of last month's shootings in Newtown, Conn., where 26 people—including 20 children—were killed by a gunman at an elementary school.

"The Second Amendment isn't there for duck hunting," a relatively calm Jones said at the beginning of a two-part, 15-minute interview. "It's there to protect us from tyrannical government and street thugs."

But things escalated rather quickly, with the interview becoming a one-sided, pro-gun tirade. Jones cut off Morgan at nearly every turn.

"I'm here to tell you," Jones yelled, pointing his finger at the talk show host, "1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms!"

The 38-year-old Texan continued, "America was born on guns and whiskey. It's true we're a violent society. ... You're a foreigner. You're a redcoat. You're telling us what to do."

"You finished?" a visibly stunned Morgan asked Jones at one point.

Jones also accused Morgan of fleeing to the U.S. to evade questions about the U.K. phone hacking scandal. "You're a hatchet man of a New World Order," Jones said.

Meanwhile, Jones added, England is becoming a police state. “You have hordes of people burning down cities and beating old women’s brains out every day,” Jones stammered. "They arrest people in England if they defend themselves."

Watch both parts below.


Thousands sign US petition to deport Piers Morgan

LONDON (AP) -- Tens of thousands of people have signed a petition calling for British CNN host Piers Morgan to be deported from the U.S. over his gun control views.

Morgan has taken an aggressive stand for tighter U.S. gun laws in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting. Last week, he called a gun advocate appearing on his "Piers Morgan Tonight" show an "unbelievably stupid man."

Now, gun rights activists are fighting back. A petition created Dec. 21 on the White House e-petition website by a user in Texas accuses Morgan of engaging in a "hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution" by targeting the Second Amendment. It demands he be deported immediately for "exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens."

The petition has already hit the 25,000 signature threshold to get a White House response. By Monday, it had 31,813 signatures.

Morgan seemed unfazed — and even amused — by the movement.

In a series of Twitter messages, he alternately urged his followers to sign the petition and in response to one article about the petition said "bring it on" as he appeared to track the petition's progress.

"If I do get deported from America for wanting fewer gun murders, are there any other countries that will have me?" he wrote.

Quoting sweet-a-kins:

Daring to have an opinion

Of course republicans/conservatives only like the who freedom thing for certain people with certain views


Quoting canadianmom1974:

So they want to deport him for exercising free speech?

Not true.

Well, I guess it's as true as all liberals are on welfare.

That's goofy. SImply don't watch his program. If he doesn't do well in the US, he goes back home to Britain.

The signers of the petition need to go back and re-read the FIRST Amendment... which was put above the Second Amendment, after all.

 Is this the latest fad to hit America...petition everything?  Like your government doesnt have better things to do than answer shit petitions.  The same people signing this shit are the same ones demanding the government do this ...do that and they themselves are clogging up the system with crap!

 Yup-people are either suing for no reason or starting stupid petitions.

Actually, Piers is from Great Britain,the United Kingdom. England.  So he's not European. He is British. I like him.

And I am anti-gun too and I also support the evidence that the original 2nd Amendment was designed to give members of a Militia to bear arms, not ALL citizens.
