Piers Morgan has long been an expert at eliciting interesting reactions from others, be they contestants on America’s Got Talent or visitors on his CNN show. The latest guest to let his Piers-fueled anger get the best of him was Alex Jones, otherwise known as the man behind the Deport Piers Morgan White House petition.
In December, Piers Morgan attracted quite a bit of attention for his controversial stance on gun control. Not happy with Piers’ desire for greater gun restrictions. Alex Jones decided to draw even more attention to the issue by launching the following petition on the White House website: “Deport British Citizen Piers Morgan for Attacking 2nd Amendment.” As of this writing, over 106,000 people have signed the petition. Apparently, these 106,000 individuals still do not see the irony in trying to “protect” the 2nd Amendment by completely decimating the cornerstone of the 1st Amendment: freedom of speech.
Last night, Piers invited Alex on his show to explain his stance on gun control, but instead of an intelligent discussion, we received a long, angry rant. And surprisingly enough, Piers was not the one losing his cool! Alex began his tirade almost immediately, accusing Piers of being “a hatchet man of the new world order.” Later growing frustrated with Piers’ inability to understand his viewpoint, the guest shouted, “1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms! It doesn’t matter how many lemmings you get out on the street begging for them to have their guns taken! We will not relinquish them! Do you understand?”
Other highlights of the
rant debate included Alex bashing the manufacturers of antidepressant drugs as the real force behind mass shootings, claiming to own over fifty firearm weapons and even extending an invitation for Piers to join Alex for a day of shooting so that he could finally “join the Republic.” But perhaps the most entertaining portion of the spectacle occurred near the end, when the gun rights advocate decided he could better make his point by speaking in a mockery of a British accent.
