How to deport Piers Morgan

posted at 12:31 pm on December 23, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

Here’s a plan which probably has roughly the same chance of succeeding as a NASA mission to land on the sun, but it’s attracting more than a little attention this holiday weekend. One of the “reasonable discussion” voices in the gun grabbing movement will be familiar to regular readers. He’s CNN’s Pier’s Morgan, who reasonably told someone who dared to suggest the Second Amendment was still important that he must be “a very stupid man.” The British, non-citizen’s repeated commentary about the need to start snatching up all of those nasty guns has now drawn some attention of an unwelcome sort, as reported by The Daily Caller.

Wall Street Journal columnist James Taranto Saturday night joined in the chorus of American voices suggesting that British-born CNN host Piers Morgan could legally be deported from this country for his televised attacks on the Second Amendment, and pointed out the legal precedent that leaves Morgan vulnerable to deportation.

Morgan began the dispute when he complained on Twitter Saturday about a petition on the White House’s “We the People” Web page that asks the government to deport him.

“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,” the drafters of the petition wrote in their introductory statement.

They’ve already gotten more than 15,000 signatures as of Sunday morning, out of the 25,000 needed to trigger a White House response. This is entirely symbolic, of course, since there is no way that the White House would suddenly deport one of their biggest cheerleaders, and even if they did it would set a horrible precedent. I do agree, however, with Taranto on the merits that Morgan’s position – as a non-citizen – is hardly assured. They had a brief exchange on Twitter covering this subject.

“Ironic U.S. gun rights campaign to deport me for ‘attacking 2nd Amendment rights’ – is my opinion not protected under 1st Amendment rights?,” Morgan tweeted.

“Your opinion is protected, your presence in the U.S. is not. See Kleindienst v. Mandel (1972),” Taranto replied to Morgan.

While this may be technically true, one of the crowning and wonderful ironies of our system is that we can criticize anything we like, including the Bill of Rights which allows us to do so. Of course, not being a citizen, one could argue that Morgan’s rights might not be quite as generous, but we traditionally allow a broad platform for anyone to participate in the free exchange of ideas. (No matter how offensive they might be.) Further, citizen or not, Morgan is ostensibly part of the media. If the day has actually arrived when the United States government starts shipping journalists out of the country (even if we’re stretching the definition a bit here) then we’ve got a real problem.

But this also brings up another question for me. We’ve been running this little “We the People” petitioning experiment for a few years now. Do we need to continue with it at this point? I mean, has there ever been a single, meaningful proposal brought up there which wasn’t already under debate and consideration by Congress which actually went anywhere? (I’m not saying there hasn’t been. I just can’t think of one, but would be happy to hear any examples.) I mean, if they could actually produce something productive, like diverting PBS spending into funding the blimp that guy is building to find Bigfoot, then I could see doing it. But thus far it really looks like little more than a diversion for bored people who want to draw some headlines.

Ever time this sod gets out of line, simply remind viewers that he was run out of his own home country for journalistic malpractice. Also, remind viewers that the USA would never have won independence from his tyrannical Britain, had the colonists been disarmed like he advocates.

Christien on December 23, 2012 at 12:41 PM

Have to share my latest – albeit quite infrequent nowadays – run in with Allidunce at TH….

RWM: Guess when the first school massacre took place?”

Allidunce: “1999. More than 4 deaths”

RWM: “No. 1764 – Greencastle, Pennsylvania: 4 Lenape American Indian warriors entered a log schoolhouse. Inside were the schoolmaster, Enoch Brown, and twelve young students. Brown pleaded with the warriors to spare the children before being shot and scalped. The warriors then began to tomahawk and scalp the children; killing nine or ten of them (reports vary). Two children who had been scalped survived. 11 dead.

Allidunce: “This kind of post promotes racism toward Native Americans.”

RWM: “Moron, it is the first school shooting in the American colonies. Should we not talk about gun crime when minorities are the killers?”

This is the type of idiocy with which we are dealing…and, OF COURSE, she love Piers Morgan, even if he did play some nasty shty on the family of the dead, little girl, Millie Dowler.

Resist We Much on December 23, 2012 at 12:43 PM

Ugh, let him stay: he’s doing more harm for his side in this “conversation” than he is helping them.

I’d say let him stay even if he was helping it.

More seriously, he does sort of represent the European view of the state. They are – left and right – much more supportive of statist policies than we are.

Federal Judge Alex Kosinski has called the 2nd Amendment a “doomsday amendment.” That is, when the government is acting in a tyrannical manner the people must have the ability and means to challenge it. In Europe, I guess, such a view is out is simply inconceivable.

SteveMG on December 23, 2012 at 12:44 PM

Sorry, it’s Alex Kozinski for anyone who wants to look up his opinion.

SteveMG on December 23, 2012 at 12:44 PM

It was fun to sign the petition, though I know its purpose will bear no fruit. I hope Morgan bothers to read all those names, since he seems to arrogantly believe his finger is on the pulse of the Nation.

Morgan is merely a visitor here. He has no right to be in America. Our Constitution was written to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to OURSELVES AND OUR POSTERITY”, which doesn’t include Morgan but which he threatens, and threatens in a stupid and boring way. He needs to be deported and there is no problem in doing so. Morgan is allowed to stay in America at our pleasure and our pleasure only.

Not really. We extend them equivalent priveleges but they don’t have those rights by the Constitution. I know that the SCOTUS disagreed with me on this, but they were wrong. Aliens can’t be held liable for treason so they can’t have the same rights as someone who is exposed to a treason charge. Other that that, the plain wording of the Constitution is pretty clear.

The government can’t just pick Piers up and arrest/detain him or anything. Or even deport him without due process and a hearing.

SteveMG on December 23, 2012 at 1:00 PM

They can revoke his visa. Then he can become an illegal … in which case he will be given citizenship by Barky and the Vichy Right almost immediately – because this country is that screwed up about the concept of national sovereignty and who the Constitution was actually written for.

They can only do that to American citizens on American soil who make a funny, witty movie about islam (which isn’t to blame for the Benghazi terrorist attack that it was blamed for over and over and over).

Yep.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair on December 23, 2012 at 1:08 PM

The US Constitution does not apply to non-US citizens

It – parts of it – applies to those who are here legally and also, to a degree, illegally.

The government can’t simply arrest people who are here legally. They have many constitutional rights. Not all of the ones citizens do but many.

If Morgan, for example, was arrested for murder he’d have the right to a trial and attorney and habeas rights, et cetera. The government couldn’t just shoot him.

Which is why, way back when, Guantanamo was chosen as a detention site for terrorists. If any terrorist is brought into the US, he becomes a landed immigrant, and being brought into the US by the government becomes a permanent ward of the federal government.

Non-US Government Civilians at Gitmo are under Cuban law, at the discretion of the local US commander since Castro cut Gitmo off, and refused to recognize US sovereignty there. US military members are under the US UCMJ.

The minute numbnuts Obama agrees to let Gitmo guests come to the US for trial or for detention, their status changes immediately upon arrival.

Old news, you already knew, but from time to time it is good to reinforce it among the folks.

Piers, on the other hand…if the US government can revoke visas for other politicians and personalities for disagreeing with the government, which they have done over the years…there might be hope to get this clown out of here.

Immigrants – legal or illegal – don’t have ALL the same rights that US citizens do. But they have some including due process.

That’s why we have immigration courts to hear deportation cases. Someone here illegally simply can’t be sent back. They have due process rights in the Constitution (5th Amendment) that requires a court hearing where the government presents its case and the immigrant his.

SteveMG on December 23, 2012 at 1:19 PM

Don’t confuse the isane mess that our courts have created for us with illegals with anything remotely approaching reasonable “due process”. barky’s aunt and uncle were both ordered deported over a decade ago. Neither left and the courts have said that they somehow have “the right” to stay here even longer. That isn’t due process. That’s ridiculous. Just because our courts have been operating that way doesn’t make it right – and it clearly isn’t. The minute someone is determined to be here illegally, they can be deported. They have no right to be here so there’s no “due process” to commit to their case. The “due process” was only in assessing that they aren’t citizens and aren’t here on legal visas. That’s it.

Probably, but only because our courts are a joke. When one has his visa revoked he should be immediately deported and have to file his appeal from a place he is legally present in. THAT is due process. Allowing an illegal to force himself on Americans is not. It’s not as if illegals aren’t citizens of some other nation. That’s where they belong while they are carrying on arguments with America about some delusional right they have to be here against our wishes.

I think there must be cause but I’m just guessing.

SteveMG on December 23, 2012 at 1:27 PM

I can’t see the nation would be bound to allow an alien to stay here. Again, the courts probably side with you but the courts have made a mockery of our law and of common sense. The courts are letting Uncle Omar – ordered deported in 1993, I believe – stay even after a drunk driving conviction. The courts are happy to let millions of illegals break all sorts of laws and threaten the “blessings of liberty” that the Constitution was written to secure for American citizens, and American citizens only.

Piers Morgan should not be deported back to Britain, but should be loaded into a high-powered cannon and fired back to Britain!

This condescending assclown of a certified snob should never have been given a public platform like the one CNN placed him on! And he certainly has absolutely no right to dictate to anyone in this country the relevance of U.S. Constitutional Law, anymore than anyone else has the right to dictate to Morgan the ethical framework of the Magna Carta!

The only thing is if by some miracle Morgan was unceremoniously shipped back to the land of his forefathers, chances are the BBC would reward him with his own nationally syndicated show that would give him even more of a platform to spew whatever anti-American rant he wished to utter from between his pearly whites!

Piers Morgan has been implicated in the British tabloid cellphone hacking scandal. On those grounds I could see a deportation — engaging in criminal violation of privacy. And certainly if Great Britain wants him back over there for questioning, I’d be happy to help a close ally.

But for this, no.

At some point, Piers’ antics become a matter of national concern because he ISN’T a citizen and has no intentions of becoming one. As for the normal usual Socialist talking heads (Maddow/Tingles/O’Donnell/Schlitz) I would agree with you, but that’s because they are citizens and participate in the electoral process, no matter how unilaterally wrong and dangerous they are.

I guess Martin Bashir is probably getting off easy because LSDNC didn’t stick him in their prime time lineup.

Further, citizen or not, Morgan is ostensibly part of the media. If the day has actually arrived when the United States government starts shipping journalists out of the country (even if we’re stretching the definition a bit here) then we’ve got a real problem.

REAL “Journalists”, who are not US citizens and are here simply to work in our MSM and nothing more, don’t use America’s televisions and radios to espouse the subversion of America on the whole and our Constitutional Rights on the part. They are FOREIGNERS doing the bidding of those who fanatically desire to see America brought down to her veritable knees. They are FOREIGNERS tantamount to agent provocateurs.

MSNBC’s Martin Bashir is another primo example.

REAL “Journalists” report the news. No matter what country they’re from. Period.

End of story, JAZZ (you limp noodle)

Our only real hope is to have his show get even fewer viewers so a desperate CNN fires him. (Not nearly so satisfying as the image of him being literally fired back to England, though.)

They are up to 20,590 right now.

My brother in law asked a barman in Bennigans where the nearest ‘fag machine was?’ to which the barman laughed and said ‘I don’t know, but I can bum you some’.

Chortle chortle.

Get rid of this Limey parasite.

He’s doing a job that millions of Americans could do far better.

I can’t tell Piers Morgan and Joy Behar apart.

John the Libertarian on December 23, 2012 at 12:38 PM

…they both menstruate the same…anatomically and mentally they are the same…Piers hair is just shorter!

I also think that although technically it would be possible to deport Morgan, it would be unwise. However, that didn’t prevent me from signing the petition. I had been out of signing these petitions because I didn’t want to give my email address to Obama Team. However, my repulsion towards Morgan pushed me above the distrust threshold. This Morgan guy is a complete moron.

Excellent post.

And thanks for the laugh. ;) I wholeheartedly agree.

Cody1991 on December 23, 2012 at 2:14 PM

Morgan ought to move back to merry olde England where people are safe from guns–but not from robbers who have them.

But for some reason Bobbies have had to start carrying them–wonder why?
