Piers fights back against deportation petition
Looks like the extremist, radical, clueless bien pensant is getting nervous.
Piers Morgan lashed out on Twitter today after a petition on the White Houses official website demanding his deportation blew past the 25,000 signature mark necessary to require an official response.
The petition, now over 45,000 signatures, asks the White House to deport Morgan, a CNN host, for what it calls an attack on the second amendment. Morgan, who is British, has been an outspoken advocate for gun control in the aftermath of the Newtown shootings earlier this month. The petition calls his advocacy a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution, and demands that he 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.
In the early going, Morgan seemed to be amused by the petition, retweeting links to it and playfully urging his followers to sign. But, after the petition passed the 25,000 threshold, he returned to Twitter to bash it, calling it ridiculous and stating that his positions on gun control are not anti-constitutional but rather common sense. Morgan also retweeted a number of tweets supporting him.
