Unethical Quote of the Month: 34,812 Americans*

“British Citizen and CNN television host Piers Morgan is engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment. We demand that Mr. Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.”

—- The language on a petition posted at whitehouse.gov and signed by 34,812 American citizens,* asking the Obama Administration to deport Piers Morgan.

brainless-empty-open-head-screamingYou can’t get much more ignorant, hypocritical and dumb than this, can you? A talk show host criticizes the Second Amendment, and these fools think the appropriate remedy for “his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights” is for the government to punish him with deportation, thus violating the First Amendment, from the Bill of Rights.

Passionate, engaged, and completely incapable of rational thought: what a frightening combination.

* UPDATE, 12/26/2012  The number is now over 75,000, and still rising. If every American who can’t see that this petition represents an absurd contradiction signs it, we’re looking at about 200,000,000 people, maybe more. This would probably spell doom for Morgan’s show, as it would mean that the only people conceivably dumb enough to watch him want him deported.

  1. Using your argument, to whit, the First Amendment protects trashing the Second Amendment, (I do agree by the way); So called, “Anti-Hate Speech” statutes are unconstitutional based on the fact that ‘speech’ is speech and therefore protected under the First Amendment to the Constitution of The United States.

    Everyone has the right to an opinion, even if it’s a stupid one. Thinking that some people are ignorant just because their opinion contradicts yours is elitist and no different than any other ‘hate group’s’ position.

    • Huh? Thinking someone’s opinion is ignorant when it is ignorant is called “perception” and “realism.” There is no “opinion” about it, in fact: advocating deporting someone for the content of their speech IS in direct opposition to the Bill of Rights. It’s not my opinion, it’s a fact. Nor does correctly diagnosing an epicaly stupid and self-contradictory statement for what it is infringe on the stupid individual’s rights. Nor is it elitist. And nothing in the post, the petition, or what Morgan said relates to hate speech in any way.

      Do you have any idea what your point is? Because I sure don’t.

  2. My take on this is that since the WH website itself seems to be a hoax/joke, the petitions are as well (They make me laugh, anyway). Certainly nothing to be taken seriously.

    • Why do you think it’s a hoax? It was set up by the white house and they do follow through…if in standard political speak. Some people may treat it as a joke, but that doesn’t mean it IS a joke.
