    Petition to deport piers morgan

    In case some of you are unaware, there is a petition to remove this man from the United States because of his expressed opinion against the second amendment of the US Constitution. The forum has been a bit boring lately, so I felt this was worth posting.

    A petition asking President Obama to deport CNN anchor Piers Morgan gathered more than 33,000 signatures in just three days.The petition on the White House’s “We the People” website posted Friday has crossed the 25,000 threshold needed to solicit a response from President Obama. But unlike the petitions to reduce gun violence that Obama addressed last week, this one isn’t likely to receive a favorable response.
    The petition takes aim at Morgan for his impassioned defense of proposed gun control legislation on air this week. It accuses him of launching “a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment.”
    But according to immigration attorney Mark Schifanelli, it would take more than expressing an opinion on television to get Morgan booted out of the country.
    The Department of Homeland Security would have the power to start a deportation process on Morgan if it was warranted, Schifanelli said, but even then, there’s no guarantee Morgan wouldn’t win the right to stay in an appeals process.
    “He’s got certain rights,” Schifanelli told ABC News Monday. “Even as a foreign national in the United States, he’s afforded various rights under national security law and due process.”
    What’s more, Morgan’s supposed attack on the Second Amendment is likely protected by the First Amendment. His speech would have to present “immediate danger” in order to break the law. Schifanelli said it’s unlikely Morgan’s defense of gun restrictions would meet that requirement.

    This sort of thing is just ridiculous.

    He is not protected by the 1st Amendment cause he's a British subject, his loyalty is to the queen.

    I'm glad to see that this is being talked about, I doubt anything will come of it, but I agree that he should be deported.

    He's entirely protected under the Constitution. He's on US soil and our laws apply to him. The courts have held this up numerous times in the past, and the Constitution was written for the People.

    He should be deported because he has his own opinion? That's unacceptable behavior, Kwes. It's horribly hypocritical to refrain the first amendment in favor of the second.

    What the $#@! do I care? He attacks the 2nd Amendment, then he doesn't deserve acceptable behavior. I say, get him out of the $#@!ing country, if he doesn't like it, why stay?

    The First Amendment exists for a reason, and it's much higher of a priority than the Second. This man has a right to voice his opinion freely just as anyone else. To say otherwise is just dishonest and cruel.

    Wow, I bet its fun to make up bull$#@! about someone you know nothing about!

    I have my right to wish that this $#@!er should be deported, is it not our first amendment right to express our hatred for this guy? Or does it only apply when bashing a certain thing?

    You have your priorities wrong. The Second Amendment exists so that "We the People" retain the ability to enforce the First. Without the Second Amendment you could be stripped of the rest of your rights any time the government felt it was convenient.

    Also, your post reeks of hypocrisy. Surely if I have a right to voice my opinion and it is MY OPINION that he should be deported, then you trying to tell me or anyone else that we shouldn't say so would be a violation of our Free Speech. Free Speech works both ways, not just one. He has the right to say what he wants, and the rest of us have the right to call for his deporation.


    I will take that a step further.

    By saying we should get rid of or change the Second Amendment he has made himself an enemy of the Constitution, which means it is the duty of our military to remove him from the country, by force if necessary. In case you've forgotten, our military takes a sworn oath to defend THE CONSTITUTION, from ALL enemies, both foreign AND DOMESTIC. With his comments regarding the Constitution and his comments regarding requiring religions to accept gay marriage, he has contridicted Freedom of Religion and our Right to Bear Arms, thus making himself an enemy of the State and an enemy of the Constitution, both very valid reasons for his deporation.

    The military has no oath to defend the government, it has an oath to protect the Constitution. It vows to take orders from the president, provided that those orders do not conflict with the Constitution or the Uniform Code of Military Justice. If his order do conflict with either, the military is duty bound to refuse them. I feel it is time for the military to step up and defend the Constitution from this man's attacks by removing him from our country.

    No one should be deported based on opinions or race/creed/religion. Especially not from within a country that is apparently based on "freedom" an "liberty"....

    #waitingfortheyeahbutpostthatdoesntmakesense
    Yeah but...
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    If the 1st Amendment covers the KKK's racist parades & the NRA's factually-inaccurate billboards, then it applies to Piers Morgan's opinion. It's your right to have the opinion that he should be deported for his opinion, just as it's his right to have that opinion. It doesn't apply to immigration law, though. The petition is a symbolic but legitimate form of protest, no matter how ill-informed it is.

    Aw man. I was quite enjoying not seeing his mug on TV.


    As much as I dislike the man what he did took balls. Takes a lot to stand up and voice your opinion especially when you know the vast majority of the country are going to shoot it down.

    It's not bull$#@!, Kwes. You know it isn't. I've read enough of your posts to see how you think. It is unfortunate that you posted before I edited the post, though.

    You have the right to say that you want this man to be deported, but it makes you no less unfair or hypocritical. And you should be criticized for that. No offense, but you're a large part of what is wrong with this nation and its society. "If he thinks differently, he should be removed!" This is a nation that once prided itself on being free and just.

    Why? If you took to the time to post it, why wouldn't you have the balls to leave it, you obviously meant it.

    And honestly, if piers has the right to bash an amendment, I have the $#@!ing right to say he needs to be deported, until anything is done, its all just talk anyway. Why do you think that an amendment should work only in some ways and not others?
