White House petition to have Piers Morgan deported from US reaches 59,000 signatures

A petition on the White House website that aims to have CNN and former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan deported from America now has around 59,000 signatures.

Morgan is facing the wrath of the US having made comments against the country’s gun control laws during an on-air interview with Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt (see video), during which he described Pratt as “a dangerous man.”

The petition was subsequently set-up on Friday, claiming that it aimed to reach 25,000 signatures by 20 January 2013, however it has since more than doubled that mark in the space of five days.

The debate was sparked following the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut where 26 people, including 20 children, were shot dead.

The petition reads: “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.”

Following another shooting that took the lives of two firemen in Webster on Monday, Morgan tweeted; “Come on America, ENOUGH (sic): Ban assault weapons & high-capacity magazines, and enforce background checks on 100% of gun sales. Do it now.”

Pierce Morgan has the right o f freedom of speech as does every Ameracan. To accuse him of trying to offe nd the principles of the second amendmant is ludicridouse. The intigator of this Whitehouse position to get him depoted because he cannot face the truth that these gun related tragedies will still continue us as London as assault weapons are allowed to be Owens by any American who has hidden mental problems who want to use these type weapons to kill and maim innocent children , teenage pupils , firemen as in the last tragedy.

It obviously to me that the man who instigated this petition and those who support this potition obviously do not care about the deaths caused by these weopens being held in the wrong hands , because they want the right to own them irrespective of the facts presented by Peirce Morgan.

Pierce Morgan was presenting views held by more people in America and around the the world than the Assult rifle owning Americans who signed this stupid potion to deport Pierce Morgan who like President Obama is trying to prevent more tragedies in schools in Americca.

To use the second amendmant to stop the truth being told by Pierce Morgan and to have him deported because he spoke the truth makes a mockery of the first Amendmand and has nothing to do with the second amendmant. I say stand up those in America who hold truth as a true value to voice themselfs and vote the potition against Pierce Morgan down. You still have time

Has anybody else noticed that there is some fuckery going on in regards to comments that are being posted on The Drum? In particular those articles concerning the Sandy Hook/gun control debate. Check out the comments section in each of the following links and pay particular attention to the usernames posting the comments (both pro and against gun control)

http://www.thedrum.com/news/2012/12/15/piers-morgan-cites-dunblane-he-la...

http://www.thedrum.com/news/2012/12/23/18000-americans-support-deport-pi...

can anyone else see the pattern? The vast majority of them are first time posters and the format of their usernames is abcde12345

At first I thought it must be some PR agency that's been hired by the NRA/Gun lobby to trawl social media sites and post pre-defined arguments defending the ownership of guns. I was imagining a room full of PR social media "executives" (in the history of this industry that has to be the biggest fucking misnomer of a job title there's ever been) each of them armed with a long list of throwaway email accounts and usernames that's been auto generated by a simple programming script.

Now I'm starting to suspect that it's THE DRUM that's behind this fuckery. That is, creating a shitload of fake usernames to post inflammatory or controversial remarks (and opposing comments) in order to generate 'conversations' to give the appearance that the social media element of this site is busier than it actually is.

Of course I sometimes post inflammatory or controversial remarks but I'm a real fucking person. Right now I'm on holiday in the Caribbean. Right this second I'm lying on my hotel room bed, typing out this post on my lapton on fucking Christmas Day and getting sucked off at the same time by some local prossie that picked me up in the bar downstairs. There's fuck all that's fake about that!

Camer10911. First off Morgan does not have every right (LIKE EVERY OTHER AMERICAN) because HE is not an AMERICAN. He is a citizen of UK. When a foriegn national comes to our great nation and publicly trashes the constitution, he is stating his disbelief in our values. Since he does not believe in our values there is no reason to allow him to stay here. Send him packing. UK doesn't want him back, so I don't know where he'll go, but he does not like oue values so get him out of here. in respnse to malcom, I originally posted as gunnsXXX with the x's being numbers. the drum assigned me gunns19559, anyway that's why so many shoiw up like that.

Ha....looks like gunns19559 scored a 2fer against those two misinformeds. I do not think that i have ever been on the same side of an issue as P Morgan.... I had to stop watching his show because it became so sicking to see such a p---y TELLING US what is wrong with OUR country. If this guy was around in 1776 he would have been hung by legal rope.
