CNN’s Piers Morgan is upset over a petition at the White House web site calling for his deportation, Twitchy reported Saturday.
“Ironic U.S. gun rights campaign to deport me for ‘attacking 2nd Amendment rights’ – is my opinion not protected under 1st Amendment rights?” he tweeted.
The petition, created on Friday, cites his relentless attacks on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
“British Citizen and CNN television host Piers Morgan is engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment,” the petition reads. “We demand that Mr. Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.”
The petition was started by “Kurt N” of Austin, Tex. and already has over 8,900 signatures. A threshold of 25,000 signatures is required for White House action. The Blaze identified the petition creator as possibly being “Kurt Nimmo of the website infowars.com.”
Morgan, who is a British citizen, has repeatedly attacked the NRA and members of the gun lobby since the tragic Newtown school shootings. In a recent exchange, he berated an advocate of gun rights as “stupid.”
