Lunatic Fringe – Piers Morgan Passes Mr. Tingles For The Most Ridiculous Pontificator on TV

(NewsBusters) CNN’s Piers Morgan has been on a rabid anti-gun rant since July’s Aurora, Colorado, shootings that has gotten even more venomous after Friday’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

On Tuesday, he rudely and disgracefully tore into guest Larry Pratt, the Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, calling him “an unbelievably stupid man” who’s “dangerous,” concluding the interview by saying, “You shame your country” (transcript available here):

    Does he believe his own bullshit? Are they just getting off on “moral superiority”? Is that all this is?

    • tara says:

      Yes. Did you hear the President this morning? He describes the anti-gun faction as having “intelligence” and “common sense”.

      Let me link to the Biden video again … Biden in 2008 promising that Obama won’t take away people’s guns:

      I guarantee you Barack Obama ain’t taking my shotguns, so don’t buy that malarkey,” Biden said to voters during a campaign stop in Castlewood, Virginia on September 20. “Don’t buy that malarkey. They’re going to start peddling that to you.”

      Biden informed the crowd that he was the proud owner of two guns.

      “If he tries to fool with my Beretta, he’s got a problem,” Biden added, referring to Obama.

  2. Saw this on NewsBusters earlier today. I engaged him via twitter, but I think he’s still a little sore from the Consitutionalist that spanked him a couple weeks ago. This guy is a twit. He doesn’t want to discuss reality, only his emotion-filled dislike of anything American. If he dislikes why America is the country it is (or at least was) why did he come here in the first place. The U.K. has had weapons bans for some time, so he could live there, among their higher incidence of violent crime compared to the U.S., if he chooses.

  3. Chip Bennett says:

    Pssst, Piers Morgan: this isn’t your country. You’re welcome, any time you’d like, to return to your own country, that has gun-control laws more to your liking.

    Otherwise: go pound sand.

    • howie says:

      America. Please leave it ASAP. Go back whare ya came from.

      • ctdar says:

        He is not going to leave the cash cow, a whore like all the rest of non US that make their living here; term also applicable to those US hollywood types that live outside the country & bash it at every turn but continue to make their paycheck here.

      • justfactsplz says:

        My sentiments exactly. How dare he criticize us. He is arrogant and rude. I could hardly stand to watch that show last night but I wanted to hear the pro gun side. This is America, Piers, respect our constitutional rights or leave it.

        • waltherppk says:

          Larry Pratt said to Piers Morgan …Neville Chamberlain is your role model …LOL :D

          • justfactsplz says:

            Yeah, that was a good one. My husband got so irate I thought he was going to reach through the t.v. and yank Piers through it.

            • waltherppk says:

              In one of our family bibles is the name of a redcoat who shot and killed a colonial who was one of our family. The number was lost count of how many redcoats were killed in retribution over the next nearly hundred years before that “little feud” was considered settled (or suspended?) business. Evidently there are still some redcoats around who are slow learners. Fortunately there is a time tested cure for the learning challenged :D

    • waltherppk says:

      A few people I know and some family live in that region of the country where the school massacre occurred and one of those friends e-mailed me this message below:

      I wish the circumstances were befitting the holiday instead of there being this awful spectacle. The simple fact that the reason the Connecticut calamity occurred , is that a mentally sick boy at the scene of his crime was armed, and NOBODY ELSE was. It is what characterizes every one of the mass shootings going back to Charles Whitman
      What do the unarmed do in such case, they call for the police, why ? , because of knowing they (the police) have guns and can intervene. What makes more sense, having a fire extinguisher at hand to put out a kitchen stove oil fire or calling for the fire department which may take minutes to arrive and another 2 or 3 minutes to begin fire suppression, by which time your home will be a total write off. Is it not better to receive cardiac pulmonary resuscitation by someone immediately at hand than to wait for paramedics to arrive by which time the effort to intervene may well be in vain ?

      How does one explain to people who are so set in their thinking they don’t want
      to hear much less consider anything that may threaten their beliefs and notions?
      A person who feels threatened by ideas and who responds with emotion is not
      being rational.

      and from there George Orwell’s analysis in 1945 (must read)

      Dali Lama too should have good cause to advocate for defense

      his brethren slaughtered. Dramatized in the motion picture Kundun..

    He needs the money to buy his piece of the pie in Dubai.

  5. knuckledragingwino says:

    I notice that the rate of forcible rape is far lower in Great Britain than in the United States. Since most rapists don’t use guns and FBI homicide statistics confirm that the vast majority of rape victims who are murderred by their assailants are not killed with guns, gun control isn’t the explanation. Perhaps there are laws in Great Britain that regulate the possession of something else?

  6. ottawa925 says:

    In connection with Piers’ ridiculous comments when Pratt says the school was unable to protect the kids cause they had no weapons … I’ve posted this before in the Zimmerman threads, but it calls for repeating here because it speaks to gun ownership …. watch Ted take Piers to school at about the 2:30 mark. And BTW, notice we have not heard from Ted lately … I’m wondering why.

    • DawnDoe says:

      That was great. And, yeah, where’s Ted?! Is he no longer allowed to speak publicly since his incident? Hmmmmm.

    • cajunkelly says:

      Ted was on Hannity yesterday, or maybe it was Glenn’s show this morning.

      One of the two. I think it was Hannity though. Seems I remember Hannity joking about his kids calling him “Uncle Ted”…hell I dunno…running on vapors…far too little sleep.

  7. ottawa925 says:

    The school should have “stood it’s ground”.

    Can one put a price on the life of a child, or anyone for that matter. But for sake of discussion, let me say $1M. How many ppl killed? 27? $27M. If there was $27M in GOLD in that school building, do you think there would have been someone, or a group of ppl guarding that $27M? hmmm?

  8. Bala Das says:

    The long and short of it is this.

    America is the magnet for the most Godly and spiritually advanced souls on Earth at this time, people of goodwill who are drawn to America due to the atmosphere of freedom created by the founders who accepted the Equality of All under God’s laws, and that every individual has god-given rights which are codified in the Bill of Rights.

    Simultaneously, the opposite type of soul is present in America to balance the scales and challenge those great souls to advance further in their spiritual realization in their relationship as servants of God through his ambassadors, such as Jesus Christ, Abraham, and Moses.

    The Christian ethic is to allow everyone a chance to show up to the feast table, tolerate and forbear their faults, in hopes that these newcomers may accept God’s will and learn to become brothers and sisters in Christ.

    However, many of mal-intent will only pretend to accept goodness, in order to grab positions of influence and power for their own aggrandizement. They have done so and flourished. They have revealed themselves. They have been given enough rope to hang themselves out there for all to see.

    And now the Christian ethic demands they be countered, as they have not accepted the gift when given every opportunity and latitude. For God’s sake, the sake of all His good children, and for THEIR OWN SAKE, these usurpers and pretenders need to be given what they really want by their own admission.

    A first class ticket to a place where they can be as Godless, immoral, unethical, and cowardly as they like. America is not and was not intended to become such a hellish place. Time to clean house, and I suggest Mr. Morgan be placed on the first plane to the Socially communist country of his choosing.

  9. John Galt says:

    Sorry, I refuse to watch that obnoxious moron. Come to think of it, I really can’t stand to watch most of the obnoxious morons on CNN.

  10. maggiemoowho says:

    The Britts won’t accept the fact that a toothbrush is the key weapon in preventing Tooth decay, so they will never accept the fact that guns are used to prevent violence.

  11. tara says:

    The only time I have ever liked Piers Morgan was when he gave race-baiter Touré Neblett sh*t for his ridiculous comments about the GZ case.

  12. czarowniczy says:

    Piers is probably pissed the prop department couldn’t get him some realistic looking blood to toss at Pratt or some easily ripped apart clothing he could be arending while he was aranting. All the little news whores are out making cash while the disaster ship’s in town. Last night Jay Leno had Quentin Tarantino on who was pushing Django Unchained. He let Quent babble on about how the movie is so important to the American acceptance and understanding of slavery in our sinful past. Now if that huge chunk of revisionist and self-promoting BS didn’t gag you near the end of the “interview” Leno asks about Quent’s ultra-violent movies as a possible reason that violence in the real world has become so prevalent and acceptable. Quent blows it off by saying that these are the kind of movies that I make, they are for adults only and it’s about mental health and not movie content. Jay nods and goes on, issue resolved.

    Let’s bring the entire entertainment industry into the debate, not just the gun makers. The movie genre has gone into full-blown outdo the last movie with graphic blood-splashing realistic gore. We (and that includes kids) see people blown up, cut up, shot up, torn up and otherwise screwed up with increasing ferocity and graphic exudates with increasing regularity not only in the movies but on TV. About the ‘parents. monitor you kids’ viewing habits’ BS, they can go to the local public library or a friend’s house and stream it on their computers. If what they see on the silver screen doesn’t have an impact on kids than why did Hollywood voluntarily remove ‘gratuitous’ smoking scenes from movies?

  13. TandCrumpettes says:

    When I went to England everyone…and I mean…everyone asked me about guns. I told them and they sort of, “ahhh’d” in understanding. You could tell that they didn’t exactly agree with it, but they at least pretended to be rather, “Ahh, yes, I get it, love.”

    It was really simple, we just didn’t fight.

    The very worst thing that happened on my trip was having a drunk bloke ask me, “Yer American? Ows yer feelin’ ’bout yer annsesstahs keelin’ aller those Indians?”

    I replied, “How do you feel? They were British.”

    He kissed me after saying that. Yeah…I didn’t have any problems discussing political issues. Maybe Piers should stop calling names and start kissing. It works for that other guy….

    • czarowniczy says:

      I had Brit and Belgium guests at my place over the last two years, all products of the post-WWII progressive Euro school system. They were appalled that I had firearms of a military style (but that didn’t stop them from shooting up one hell of a lot of ammo) and that I had such a huge estate. The ‘estate’ slap was a Euro-progessive dig at the fact that they just ain’t got no land there anymore and in many areas it’s too expensive to buy a house so they rent a house/apartment for life. My estate is a working farm but they’d rather cage it in pejorative terms. My German relatives (from the old DDR) drank lots of beer, shot up lots of ammo and wished that somehow they could move here to where they could own a gun, hunt freely on their own land and – oh yeah – actually afford to buy land. It’s all a matter of perspective. I tend to believe that those Europeans who wanted to be, live and think freely moved here – the whiners stayed there.

      • TandCrumpettes says:

        They do have this idea that our entire country is the Wild West. I was staying in a tiny little town – I may very well have been the first American they ever met. Everybody wanted to know what America was like…how many times had I been mugged (that was a burning question!). Personally, I have never been the victim of any crime (knock on wood). But that answer apparently wasn’t good enough.

        “So, yer not been ‘havin’ no troubles there, love, but howsabou’ a bloke like me, eh?” I honestly have no clue – I don’t know anyone who’s been the victim of any crimes, either. I live in a town as small as their own. Still, they had this curiosity about “how long would I last?” heh…as if our life expectancy ends around 21.

        • czarowniczy says:

          Yeah, if I wanna PO my Brit friends and relatives I just ask “How’s that government-sponsored dental care doing ya’?” I had a German relative come here for medical treatment he couldn’t even buy out-of-pocket in Germany. There ‘news’ reporting there’s about as accurate and realistic as ours here.

    • michellc says:

      I’ve been watching some local news for the humor as well as to listen to the informed. First they had a gun dealer on discussing the stupidity of banning large caliber clips. He showed a gun with a 10 round capacity clip then he showed how quickly he could replace that clip. He asked the logical question, why ban large capacity clips when you can buy as many 10 round clips as you want and still be able to fire as many rounds as the large capacity?
      For the humor part of it, they were talking about the gun bans in Australia and UK and were showing a woman in Australia who buys toy guns from kids and destroys them because she doesn’t believe kids should play with toy guns. Then they showed comments from around our country of the anti-gun advocates and then they said back in Oklahoma guns are flying off the shelves. Then they went to another gun dealer and he said he sells on average maybe 1 AR rifle a day, today he sold 13 and has totally sold out. I couldn’t help myself I had a good chuckle.

      • tara says:

        why ban large capacity clips when you can buy as many 10 round clips as you want and still be able to fire as many rounds as the large capacity?

        During that second when the mentally ill shooter takes a break from the massacre to reload the clip, one of his targets might be able to move a whole 6 inches. Clearly this would save so many lives, or something like that. Right?

            Up next: The drafters of the 2nd Amendment contemplated muzzle loaders.

            I’ll only entertain such an argument if it is made via pamphlet produced on a manual typeset printing press. After all, what’s good for the Second Amendment is good for the First Amendment, too, right?

          • czarowniczy says:

            More like the Framers presaged Schumer, Feinstein and Obama.

      • howie says:

        Don’t laugh. This is a full on blitz a coming. I don’t think people realize how devious they are. They hate armed anti——- more than millionaires.

          The crazy Sheila Jackson Lee from Texas says if you care about dead children you’d just turn in your guns before she takes them. Well I kind of took liberty with what she said but I’m sure that’s what she means.

          Her exact quote: “I would personally just say to those who are listening, maybe you want to turn in your guns,” Jackson Lee said on the House floor. “Oh no, I’m not going to take your guns. But look at what Dick’s Sporting Goods did … they wanted to be part of the solution and part of America.”

  14. howie says:

    Nobody can beat Tingles. At best he could get a dead heat. Long Walk Morgan v Tingles. What a contest.

  15. JAS says:

    Morgan is still sore because back in the late 1700′s we kicked their collective British ASSES out of America, and that includes the King’s ass. This back when they were the only Superpower in the world back in the late 1700′s.

    He probably doesn’t even know this, but the whole thing was about timber. North America had all the timber the world needed, and the Brits wanted the best tress for their warships in order to maintain their world supremacy, and for free, a King’s ransom. But, we kicked their asses all the way back to England, courtesy of a bunch of squirrel hunters with SUPERIOR firearms – the Kentucky Rifle. The French came into the conflict after we showed our stuff and not before….

    I’m guessing he maybe knows that lesson all too well, DNA or something…

    For a great show watch Mankind, The History of all of Us on Hist HD. The particular episode is called “Revolutions: Mankind Tames the Wilderness” it will be on again on 12/22 at 6:00pm. The show is based on the book by Pamela D. Toler Ph.D. Obviously worth the read,

    The book points out in detail how guns got humankind to the pinnacle of civilization, and not the other way around.

    Guns equal …………….wait for it, ………………………. equality and liberty.

    • WeeWeed says:

      Refresh my historical memory – were not the tar and turpentine bi’nesses part of that lumber deal?? – Shipbuilding.

      • czarowniczy says:

        Yes. The British Admiralty declared the oak and long leaf pine forests of the South as vital to the British national interests as the Brits had pretty much cut down their marine timber supplies and – whoops – forgot to replant. The long leaf takes some 150+ years to mature but the mature old-growth trees in the southern US forests made great marine lumber (not to mention masts), they could be tapped for sap for marine stores and the stumps and roots were packed with resinous sap that could be processed also We in the South call it fatwood and many years ago a friend and I made a few spare bucks dynamiting old long leaf stumps for the pitch and firewood business. The fatwood lasts for many years in stumps and is one of the best fire starters you can buy. Guess what I grow on 60 acres here?

  16. akathesob says:

    LOL’z SMH useful idiot my butt

  17. Who is this Pierced Moron…and why does he look and sound like a douche bag?

  18. Ugh says:

    Why John Lott keeps appearing on his how is beyond me! The only reason I tune in Morgan is to hear Lott.

  19. cajunkelly says:

    While listening to Beck’s guest commentator this morning, a gentleman called in (I believe he’s a state legislator) and mentioned that there is already a law “on the books” that allows states and school boards to allow concealed carry for teachers.

    The only part of it that I caught was “nickleby” (not sure of the spelling).

    Is anyone here aware of that law/ruling?

    • WeeWeed says:

      Well, Texas can if they want to, and Perry reiterated it. (p.s. – needless to say, he’s catchin’ hell from the pussies. No offense, Dear Puddy.)

  20. cajunkelly says:

    Oh, and someone should ask asshat morgan if HE HAS ARMED body guards.

    Betcha a dime to a donut he does.

  21. cajunkelly says:

    Someone brought this up on a talk radio show and it’s excellent.

    Ask the naysayers why they’re perfectly OK with armed air marshals protecting THEM on airplanes, but not ok with armed teachers protecting five and six year olds in school.
