Piers Morgan Declares, ‘I May Deport Myself’

Deport Piers Morgan

In a commentary posted today, Piers Morgan declared that Americans may not need to deport him as he just might deport himself. This declaration was in response to a White House petition signed by over 91,000 Americans demanding that the CNN talk show host be deported.

Morgan has been increasingly critical of America’s gun laws in the aftermath of the Newtown, Connecticut massacre. When Morgan vocalized his opinions during his CNN talk show, some of his critics became furious and brought forth the petition to have him deported. Although he is not an American Citizen, Piers is a permanent resident of The United States.

In his commentary, posted on Daily Mail, Piers Morgan explains his point of view in detail. Morgan claims he has only fired guns one time in his life, an experience that he admitted was “undeniably exciting.” He also stated that having fired guns, he realized how deadly the weapons really are.

Morgan then goes on to explain a sense of empathy and despair he developed through the years as he covered several school shootings. As a parent, he explains, he can barely conceive how the parents of those children must feel.

Piers points out how his feelings of hurt and anger turned into “blind rage” when he realized how American were reacting to the tragedy. Many American simply began purchasing more guns, including the AR-15 assault rifle used in the Newtown massacre.

Morgan discusses his reaction to the petition to have him deported:

“The concerted effort to get me thrown out of the country – which has so far gathered more than 90,000 signatures – struck me as rather ironic, given that by expressing my opinion I was merely exercising my rights, as a legal US resident, under the 1st Amendment, which protects free speech.”

He concludes his commentary with a note about the prospect of deporting himself:

“In conclusion, I can spare those Americans who want me deported a lot of effort by saying this: If you don’t change your gun laws to at least try to stop this relentless tidal wave of murderous carnage, then you don’t have to worry about deporting me.”

“Although I love the country as a second home and one that has treated me incredibly well, I would, as a concerned parent first – and latterly, of a one-year-old daughter who may attend an American elementary school like Sandy Hook in three years’ time – seriously consider deporting myself.”

The petition requesting the deportation of Piers Morgan can be viewed and monitored at whitehouse.gov.

    Well, Mr. Morgan. You make more money that I, but if you need some expediency in your "self-deportation", do you need some donation's to help with your plane tickets? I'll see what I can do to organize a fund.

    Why are we stupid ralph ? Because we refuse to give up the one thing that we can protect ourselves with . If you dont like guns then dont buy own one . And when something happens to you or yoyr family you can just simply call the police and wait for them . This world is full of crazy, violent people looking for an easy way to get stuff .be it money, drugs, or hell made they just want to inflict pain. Either way i dont care .I plan on protecting myself my family and my friends and even complete strangers if the situation calls for it .. im glad people dont like guns or dont own them because that gives criminals someone to victimize instead of me .. mr morgan is a fool he has a full armed security staff so of course he doesnt care …

    Bye asshole…don't let the door hit you on your ''bloody'' ass on the way out!

    yes he used his first to take your second amendment…next time he'll use his first to take your third, then your forth, fifth ,sixth, etc….UNTIL SUDDENTLY YOUR FIRST AMENDMENT IS GONE!!! WAKE UP HE IS ATTACKING THE SECOND AMENDMENT!!! Its simple…you dont like our constitution, get the fuck out!

    This has NOTHING to do with freedom of speech. As an immigrant he swore, as he came into the country, that he would support the constitution. He made comments against the 2nd amendment, which is part of the constitution he swore he supported. If he had no freedom of speech he would have been arrested and charged, as would a lot of people on this post, for speaking out against the constitution.
    Freedom of speech means I can say my wife looks fat in the pants she is wearing. Since I don’t have freedom from repercussions she will probably hit me, but I am free to say it.

    @Doug Honeycutt. Look at his residency. Appears he is NOT a US citizen either. It never ceases to amaze me how alot of "foreigners" jump to talk smack against us, and it doesn't even involve them.

    What most people do not realize that an AR15 was not used in the Newtown massacre. The weapons that were used were all hand guns. Watching the whole event unfold that day and local law enforcement stated exactly what happened but I saw the media start twisting the truth around as soon as things were reported. The media has distorted this event and many more like it solely for propaganda that would benefit them and them only. It is just like telling a lie over and over until you and the ones that want to believe what the media has put out there. In my book they are as corrupt as the person that pulled the trigger and is a big makeup of what is happening to this country. I believe in the Constitution, all of it, but when mislead by propaganda they need to be held accountable for the misjudgment (all out lies) that they report. It reporters and government officials were held accountable and stiff penalties were enforced most of this crap would stop and the US would get back on track. Until then we as free Americans need to stand up and fight for what our forefathers put into place, put into place for a reason.

    Ralph, if we are all just stupid Americans then doesn't it make sense to just allow us to have our guns because following your logic we're all so stupid we'll only self destruct anyways. So for all the countries that hate us mind your own business, this doesn't concern you. In my opinion our freedom eats away at your pitiful souls every time we're on the news. I usually respond with more logic and facts but tonight I'm tired. I am sick and tired of the lies and accusations, name calling and judging. So for a stupid comment I will give a stupid response. While I'm at it, if you want to be mean, look at your picture and decide if you really want to put yourself up for criticism. God bless you Ralph and your little doggy too.

    Beautifly said Mark. I think though that you have unvieled the true problem here. It seems that nobody really has to face the repercussions anymore because society now blames everybody and everything BUT the guilty party. I truely believe he did not expect any consequences because he holds himself above the rest of us. He underestimated us, did he not?

  13. Ron Warren

    Since he is not a U.S. citizen, he does not have 1st amendment protection. Lets throw him out!

  14. Carlene New

    We shouldn't dis the country he's from. He's just another douchebag that needs to leave the 2nd amendment alone. I have 4guns in my house which I know how to load and shoot. I grew up around guns.

  15. Carlene New

    Go back to the hole you came from Ralph. Just bc Americans want gun rights, doesn't make us stupid. It makes us smart. Statistically speaking, the most gun violence is in "gun free areas."

  16. Curtis Martin

    You are just over here to make a lot of money! That's Capitalism A-hole. So take your sorry ass back to England where you belong. You said the Constitution and the Bible were flawed and then you cite the first ammendment. What a hypocrite! Leave! the sooner, the better.

  17. Michael McClanahan

    I did not say one thing about changing the 2nd amendment, nor do I run around calling anyone homos or douchebags because they do not agree with what I say……. I also believe that we have the right to bear arms but calling others names like school children serves no purpose. But I will defend anyone's right to make stupid comments, no matter who they are.

    Fly fly back over the pond…. let the brits deal with your nasty self.

    It is amazing that when all the facts in this case are laid out the argument ends.

    It`s Jan 3 2013. Did this scum bag Piers leave yet? If not , can he possibly buy an extra ticket for that fat ass piece of shit Michael Moore. The two of them can go live together in total harmony on some deserted island where we don`t have to put up with their lowlife , phony, BS.
