CNN’s Brit Twit Piers Morgan Says 1st Amend. Should Only Cover Speech HE Likes

British twit Piers Morgan, host of one of CNN’s lowest rated evening talk shows, has made it clear many times that he is wholly ignorant about the U.S. Constitution. Usually he reveals his ignorance about the Second Amendment, but this time he’s shown his stupidity about the First saying that freedom of speech shouldn’t cover speech he doesn’t like.

Foreign citizen Morgan was naturally responding to the current controversy over comments made by Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson. Morgan says that Robertson shouldn’t be allowed to have his freedom of speech or his choice of religion. Robertson should only be allowed to say what Piers Morgan thinks is proper.

Morgan idiotically jumped to his over used Twitter feed to reveal his latest nonsense saying, “Just as the 2nd Amendment shouldn’t protect assault rifle devotees, so the 1st Amendment shouldn’t protect vile bigots. #PhilRobertson.”

It is painfully clear that this interloper from England has never read the U.S. Constitution and doesn’t understand it. I guess the “ye olde English language” it was written in is too complicated for Morgan to grasp.

Of course, most Americans understand that the First Amendment was made precisely for people such as Phil Robertson. It was made to give people of all political and religious persuasions the assured freedom to be able to say and believe what they want.

But, like all leftist fascists (here we call them members of the Democrat Party), Morgan feels that he should be the one to say what speech is “allowed” and what isn’t.

    WTH? Get lost you worthless foreigner. Who cares what you think.

  • Vagabond661

    Silly man,

  • Commander_Chico

    Typical New Labour authoritarian. ASBOs and hate speech laws.

  • Guest

    In his GQ interview, Phil Robertson does come across as a vile bigot.

    ..

    And the First Amendment does, in fact, protect vile bigots.

    • Commander_Chico

      So what? It protects you, too.

    • Jwb10001

      The first amendment appears to protect people that call other people vile bigots as well.

      • JWH

        Indeed.

    • 914

      Al Sharpton is proof of that..

    • LiberalNightmare

      I disagree.

      I read the interview and cant see how anybody that did would consider him a bigot.

      In short – I dont believe that you read the article.

  • Brucehenry

    Except for the obligatory “leftist fascist” nonsense at the ass end of this piece, I find myself in agreement with Warner Todd Huston.

    • jim_m

      There is a reason that Morgan is here in the US, and that is because the British couldn’t stand him any longer. Wherever he goes he is universally reviled.

      That may be the most unkind thing I’ve ever seen said here about one of Warner Todd Huston’s posts.

        Merry Christmas, Rodney!

  • Al

    Try writing your articles with at least a little neutral perspective so that you yourself don’t seem to support any particular party

    • 914

      Nah, just exhibit a little Philosophy and state what you believe.

    • LiberalNightmare

      Kinda the root of the problem aint it?

      Don’t say what you believe lest you offend somebody with a different viewpoint?

    • warnertoddhuston

      Try fucking off, asshole. There is that neutral enough?

      • 914

        No, he wants more reverse!

    • 914

      You and Peirs are fools of a feather. And as such can F off together.

  • Jwb10001

    You know Piers, there’s a country on the other side of the Atlantic that might suit you better.

  • LiberalNightmare

    There seems to no shortage of rights that the left would like to change in order to suit themselves.

    A really good reason why we shouldn’t consider the constitution to be a living document.

    • Commander_Chico

      Yeah, that way the government can say the 4th Amendment does not apply to them reading your emails, because they’re not literally “papers,” or could censor the internet, because there’s no “press.”

  • Lawrence Westlake

    Well, I don’t think Morgan learned all too much about U.S. Constitutional law while studying journalism over in merry old England. That aside, the 1st Amendment has absolutely nothing to do with this non-story. The government is not preventing or trying to prevent this Robertson fellow from speaking his mind. That this entire non-story has become such a cause celebre illustrates in point of fact just how far we’ve already devolved into Idiocracy.

    • Commander_Chico

      Au contraire. If there was no First Amendment protection for Robertson’s speech, Robertson could be criminally prosecuted for what he said.

      You missed Piers’s point. He wants Robertson prosecuted.

    The stupid twit loves being the center of controversy, and this is giving him the attention he craves. After quitting ‘America’s Got Talent’, he’s got to do something to stay in the limelight, and having a poorly-watched show isn’t giving him his jollies.

    So – manufacture controversy. Getting attention because you’re an idiot is better than not getting attention at all.

    • Commander_Chico

      Kind of like the DD thing.

      • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

        I think A&E was looking to generate some sort of controversy – other articles I’ve seen indicate they’ve been unhappy because they can’t twist the DD scenario in a direction they like, so by getting rid of the head of the clan it was supposed to put the rest of them on-notice, and they could turn it into a ‘Hur, hur, aren’t these hillbillies stupid!’ reality-type show.

        Only things aren’t turning out as they planned.

        Now Piers Morgan – he WANTS to play the pissed off Brit, it gives him viewers he wouldn’t have otherwise.

        I’d rather watch Jeremy Clarkson – at least he’s funny when he’s insulting the US.

        • Commander_Chico

          Everybody would rather watch Jeremy – he’s done well going global.

          You are right about the effect of the DD thing. A lot of people want to keep social disapproval of homosexuality even if it is legally tolerated.

          I have been looking for something I read years ago, it was a Harvard psychology prof who said that there are a lot of kids who can go either way, homo or hetero, as well as hard homos and heteros. The cultural discussion is being fought over those kids.

          • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

            And it’s not even social disapproval so much as a “I don’t give a damn as long as you don’t rub my face in it’ sort of thing. What people do in their bedrooms is their own business, as far as I’m concerned. I’m not going to turn to my lovely bride in public and loudly announce “Hey, baby, let’s go play hide the burrito.” – that’s just bad manners.

            Of course, public manners don’t seem to matter much any more…

            As far as that study goes – you might find this interesting…

            http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/science/2013/12/the-vast-majority-of-raw-data-from-old-scientific-studies-may-now-be-missing/#ixzz2o3hpgpPk

            The Vast Majority of Raw Data From Old Scientific Studies May Now Be Missing

            One of the foundations of the scientific method is the reproducibility of results. In a lab anywhere around the world, a researcher should be able to study the same subject as another scientist and reproduce the same data, or analyze the same data and notice the same patterns.

            This is why the findings of a study published today in Current Biology are so concerning. When a group of researchers tried to email the authors of 516 biological studies published between 1991 and 2011 and ask for the raw data, they were dismayed to find that more 90 percent of the oldest data (from papers written more than 20 years ago) were inaccessible. In total, even including papers published as recently as 2011, they were only able to track down the data for 23 percent.

            Hard to reproduce a conclusion when you can’t even find the original data… And as we’re finding, just because a study says something, that doesn’t mean it’s true or accurate…

          • jim_m

            Sounds like Mann’s global warming data. When asked to produce it he basically said, “The dog’s eaten it.” and now he is suing anyone who calls him a fraud.

          • http://www.rustedsky.net JLawson

            Yeah, that’s what I was thinking.

            “I can’t show you my work, only my conclusions. I won’t let you see the software for the models, or the data. I recommend nations spend billions to counteract a threat that might exist, but you won’t be able to reproduce my models to see if I’m right.”

            If that’s science, then alchemy’s back in fashion.

          Plus Clarkson punched Morgan showing that he has good sense.

            Thank you!

  • GarandFan

    Is Morgan really British? I’d think he’d be more at home in Germany, wearing a Brown Shirt.

    • thomas thompson

      fire piers moron.

  • http://www.blackmailersdontshoot.com/ ChandlersGhost

    Piers is kind of like a smarmy, fruity, unreasonable version of Andrew Sullivan. Wait, what?

  • RichFader

    So we can put him on trial?

    Oh, that title? Wrong vowel.

  • Joseph Kool

    Desperate times require desperate measures. Morgan will say anything to get people to watch his pathetic show.
