Piers Morgan’s War On Guns Failed … To Boost His Ratings

This website’s founding editor doesn’t watch cable news (yawn) … but in the rare event something of import transpires thereupon, we have columnists who do.

This is how we know CNN host Piers Morgan recently embarked on an effort to boost the abysmal ratings of his primetime television show by launching a jihad against Americans’ right to bear arms.

Did it work? Not even a little …

According to the latest data from TV By The Numbers, Morgan’s Monday show was watched by 545,000 viewers – or less than half the number of people who watched MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow (and less than a third the number of people who watched Fox News’ Sean Hannity). In fact Morgan’s show drew less than half the viewership for “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” a new reality television show built around drag queens.

Yikes … and this guy gets paid $6 million a year?

The marketplace of ideas is speaking, people … as is the actual marketplace (i.e. the big business currently being done by gun and ammunition manufacturers). Unfortunately the administration of Barack Obama isn’t listening – choosing instead to shamelessly exploit victims of gun violence as part of its ongoing crusade to deny one of the most essential American liberties.

That’s too bad …

The FBI’s own statistics reveal that violent crime has decreased significantly in response to elevated levels of gun ownership in America – and that’s during a recession, when violent crimes are typically on the rise.

Don’t believe us? Check out the government data for yourself …

Yeah … more guns = safer country. Meanwhile tougher gun laws = The Murder Capital of America.

Morgan – and Obama – are on the wrong side of this debate. On all fronts, the numbers simply do not lie …

Still the GOP, the gutless moderates and libertarians, are scared to death of the liberal Gestapo…

Look at the Chris Culliver Freedom of Speech case…even FITS who claims to be courageous and take on all issues…is s#!**ing his pants, scared to offend the Gay NAZIs…

Your attack on Free Speech is just like Hitler’s. You try to destroy anyone w/ an opinion not in line w/ yours…

Maybe you’ve become what you claim once persecuted you…but your reponse certainly does not exonerate you from what you are and what you’re trying to do…

PS: NAZIs wanted to exterminate the disabled. And the Leftwing Abortion Crusades have that as a reason for Abortion…so you and Hitler are alike there, too…

Actually Smirks, there was a small and powerful group of Pink Hakenkreuz wearers within the highest levels of Nazi power. Ernst Roehm, one of the founders of the movement was killed by Hitler because he was a power threat, not because he was just this side of flaming (he was though, he heavily recruited among the members of Germany’s homosexual population for his SA under the belief that “…queers were used to fighting and good at it…”). Goering was a drag queen, Goebbels was a closeted homo as well.

I could give a long answer about how there are an untold number of disabilities that are so debilitating that they are either impossible to survive or render the child extremely dependent on medicine, surgeries, and physical therapy and yet not even afford a semblance of a decent quality of life. That’s pointless with you. I’ll just give the short answer:

You don’t want to extend health insurance access to help cover disabled people better. You don’t want to ban preexisting conditions discrimination that quite often fucks over disabled people. You don’t want to ban lifetime maximums that many disabled children would surpass early in their life. You want to cut welfare that likely helps parents with disabled kids. You want to cut Medicaid, which likely helps disabled kids in poor families get any real treatment at all. You’ve stated your distaste for the Americans with Disabilities Act.

So, you want children with disabilities to be born no matter what, and the ones that survive better have chosen to be born into families of considerable wealth lest they suffer for it.

Will Obama send in the disabled Nazis if the gay Nazis fail?

“…except he was smarter.”

Not really a point, IS, since Kaczynski was considered a genius. Nuts, sure, but with an IQ around 167, there are relatively few in the entire world who can claim to be “smarter” than the Unabomber. Much as I disagree with your obsession, I’m guessing he’s far more sane than Kaczynski.

The Alex Jones interview is the only time Piers Morgan has genuinely been worth watching.

Unfortunately for Piers, most people saw that shit on YouTube.

Oh, and hilarious comparison there, FITS:

CNN is in deep shit and now the worthless POS who pretty much wrecked NBC is the new honcho. Low numbers of viewers mean less advertisers and/or low priced ads. They dropped Carville and Matlin others will go or quit.

What has to scare everyone…as Failed as the liberals continually are in their business model…they elected a Failed president twice…and he is following their business plan exactly…and we’re getting the same result for the US economy…

And Obama’s idiots (FITS included) don’t miss a beat proclaiming him as their god-almighty (see Smirks)….

Funny, back in college they showed how if you use a chart to prove a point, use small increments to make it look more impressive.

“The FBI’s own statistics reveal that violent crime has decreased significantly in response to elevated levels of gun ownership in America – and that’s during a recession, when violent crimes are typically on the rise.”

So, no other correlation can be made by this data? No other variable(s) but gun ownership? Poor science in my book.

I’m with Piers!!! He is definitely on the right track. He is really speaking for the majority of Americans who are getting drowned out by the NRA who has more money to shout louder. We are getting organized and hopefully we can come up with a reasonable solution of removing assault weapons and large magazines of ammunition. No one needs access to these. PERIOD! We need to do something now so we can all live in a safer world again. And arming more people isn’t the answer.
