Yes, I said to ignore the Constitution.
People have First Amendment rights. They can pretty much say whatever they like about whatever they want. I’m cool with that. In fact, I’m pretty proud of that. But let’s ignore the Constitutional argument and just look at the practical argument.
As far as I’m concerned, we need to keep him right where he is, reminding American firearm owners with his outrageous disarmament advocacy just exactly why we had a Lexington and Concord in 1775.
Of course he has the right to be a complete and total douche bag. Even complete and total douche bags have Constitutional rights. But beyond that, by being exactly who he is, Piers Morgan is providing us a service. He’s reminding us of why our forefathers shot the Kings men and sent his officers home.
Most anti-gun people are sophisticated enough to avoid outright calls for citizen disarmament. They know that calls for gun bans cause the rest of us to get mad and fight. Piers Morgan, not being from around here, says openly what the gun grabbers are thinking. He screams and shouts from his well defended ivory tower, compounding stupidity with sneering condescension. He has turned himself into the perfect representation of everything that regular Americans hate while at the same time dragging the gun grabbers out from under the rocks into the light.
Regular Americans get pissed off when someone claims to be their moral superior. Regular Americans get a bit upset when obvious foreigners lecture us about how much better it is overseas. Piers Morgan has managed to hit all the buttons at once. Probably because he’s so busy being culturally superior that he hasn’t even bothered to learn anything at all about American culture. He probably doesn’t even think we have a culture.
So yes, let’s ignore the fact that Piers Morgan has a Constitutional right to be a complete and total douche bag. From a practical standpoint he is the gun grabbers worst enemy. We should let him stay just for that reason.
