White House denies petition to deport Piers Morgan

There are 61 comments on the news.yahoo.com story from Jan 10, 2013, titled White House denies petition to deport Piers Morgan. In it, news.yahoo.com reports that:

Editor's note: I know this isn't "gay" related to most people, but when it comes to deporting someone who excercises their right to free speech in this country, I have to take a stand. As a gay man Ibeg everyone not to blame us for the bigotry of bigots and fools.

The White House has responded to the petition seeking the deportation of Piers Morgan with a statement from press secretary Jay Carney explaining the First Amendment.

The petition, which received well over 100,000 signatures (25,000 are required for a White House response) was led by conservative radio host Alex Jones.

He wrote, "British Citizen and CNN television host Piers Morgan is engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment. 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."

backlash at the top of the stairs
"The noted British historian Arnold Toynbee has a sweeping theory of human development called "The Cycle of Challenge and Response." According to this theory every civilization faces a constant succession of challenges and confrontations, and its viability and soundness can be measured by the vigor and nature of the response. It may meet the challenge head on, emerging stronger and healthier for the encounter; it may react defensively, desperately, leaving the struggle exhausted; or it may, at the first sign of threat, simply lie down and die. As it is with civilizations, so it may be with movements. For that matter, so it may be with individuals. Our vitality, our spirit, and our very capacity for survival can likely be measured not only by the vigor of our response to challenge and confrontation but also by the pattern and the nature of that response....

Our battle for freedom and recognition parallels to a striking degree that experienced by the blacks, for we are (in every modern sense of that term) a minority. We have our ghettos, our unemployment, our underemployment, and our Uncle Toms. We have our establishment (composed of society as a whole and, particularly, of many of the professionals in the governmental and private agencies). That establishment condescendingly loves us if we stay in our places, and bitterly resents us if we strive for equality...

....they tell us that there is no discrimination and that we are not a minority. We want no strife or confrontation, but we will do what we have to do. We are simply no longer willing to be second-class citizens. We have said it before, and we say it again: We know who we are, and we will never go back!...

.... No group ever goes from second-class status to first-class citizenship without passing through a period of hostility. Several years ago I made the statement that we had not even come far enough up the stairway of independence for anybody to hate us. I believe I can safely say that that problem has now been solved. We have enemies enough to satisfy even the most militant among us. We have actually progressed to the point of creating a backlash.

However, we must see the situation in perspective. The hostility and backlash which we are experiencing are not due to mistakes on our part or to radical behavior or to over aggressiveness or to any of the other trumped-up charges which have been made against us. Just as with the black civil rights movement and Martin Luther King, the hostile reactions and backlash are an inevitable step on the stairs which lead from the depths of rejection and custody to the upper level of freedom and first-class status. The bottom steps of that stairway are often paved with condescension and pity; the middle steps are sometimes paved with goodwill and the beginnings of acceptance; but the top steps are always paved with resentment and fear. We have come a long way up. We are approaching the top of the stairs, and we are experiencing our full measure of fear and resentment...."

Newark NJ Mayor Cory Booker explains how he overcame his sheer hatred for homosexuality

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-22603...

"'He told me of the violence - violence form strangers and family, horrible images of beatings, destruction of property and the daily verbal condemnations,' he recalled.'It was chilling to find that so much of the testimony he shared with me was almost identical to stories my grandparents told me about growing up Black."

Nope. Not at all. Though I don't own a gun I see no reason to ban handguns and rifles.

But an assault rifle is different.

But you dodged my question about why we ban other weapons less lethal like knives, nun-chucks, etc.

You never speak up about those bans so stop acting like you're such a loyal defender of the 2nd amendment. You're as supportive of that as you are a libertarian. You're a RePTIaL (Republican Pretending to impersonate a Libertarian)

It was also written to protect us from fellow citizens like you trying to impose your fascist agendas.

A point folks like you like to avoid I might add.

A ban on assault rifles doesn't do that any more than a ban on owning a nuclear bomb does.

Most rational people know the difference between an assault rifle and a nuclear warhead.

Guess they didn't teach you that in College either.

BTW why the fake name again FaFoxy?

And the 2nd amendment exists just in case our own govt would allow assault rifles to flood into the hands of what equates to enemy comabatants or ruthless drug dealers by way of 'fast n furious'
It is policies like these that citizens themselves should be guaranteed such rights to own and posess said weapons.
One thing many gays posess along with their fickle perversions is a ton of ignorance.
Fine. Then under the 2nd amendment I should be able to own hand grenades as well. But you people never oppose that ban.

Frankly I'd rather have a supply of swords, RPG's and a few rocket launchers with accurate missiles than an assault rifle.

I notice no one wants to address bans on pepper spray, samurai swords, 7" butterfly knives or switchblades, yet assault rifles are as valuable to some as their 200 year old family Bible.

Hypocrisy.

When you end bans on me owning those I'll be happy to have assault rifles around as well.

Protection from OTHER governments, not our own. They made other provisions in the Constitution for changing our own government. The whole point of the Revolution was to form our own government, and throw off a foreign government.

Cletus, they were fighting ENGLAND, not the United States government. They were trying to break free from foreign rule, not their own government, until the Civil War, but that is a whole different story, and didn't THAT turn out dandy?
