Piers Morgan, you limey bottom feeding bastard
Piers Morgan, you limey bottom feeding bastard
I often use the expression “educated beyond their hat size” to illustrate how idiotic some people are. Marc Lamont Hill is a perfect example of this expression!
The background to this transcript is that Piers Morgan dared to tell the truth
The reason for his bad day centered around Janet Mock, a transgender woman he’d had as a guest on his program to discuss her new book Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More. That’s right, he was helping her sell her book. But that wasn’t enough for Mock. She really wants to sell her book. So a week after the interview was taped, she incited people in the transgender community, who accused Morgan of being “transphobic” and mistreating her by explaining that she was male before age 18. The fact is, Mock was born a boy with the name “Charles” and had a sex change at 18. Her beef is that she “identified” as a woman her whole life. And yet, she still had a penis.
During the interview, Piers told her that her dress was something Beyoncé would wear. Mock replied, “Well, I live for Beyoncé. So that’s a very good compliment. Thank you.” Piers complimented Mock repeatedly throughout the segment, calling her “brave” and “gutsy” and a “remarkable lady.” Instead of being treated like a zoo animal who is fed his part, Morgan asked questions he thought viewers would wonder about. For example, asking his audience how they might feel if they learned a woman they were dating was once a dude? Hardly an outlandish question to ask in reference to a transgender woman who is selling a book about her life experiences. But that was not in Mock’s talking points. She wanted Piers to normalize her experience and speak to her as if she wasn’t selling her book based on the fact that she is a transgender. Would the book even exist had she not been born with a penis? OF COURSE NOT. If we wanted a sanitized, publicist’s version of an interview, fine. But that wasn’t the case, nor should it have been
In short he SAID that this woman WAS a boy until she had surgery to change her gender. But that truth caused a case of offendeditis that this idiot Marc Lamont Hill obviously contracted
MARC LAMONT HILL: …[F]or me Piers, the bigger issue isn’t the use of language. It’s the fact that so much of the interview centered around the sensational aspects – about genitalia. There’s so much more about trans life, trans experience, that I wanted you to cover….
MORGAN: No, wait a minute – wait a minute, okay?…I never mentioned her genitalia at all ever in either interview. You’re the first to mention. I didn’t mention this.
HILL: Well, when you say – well, look, you alluded to it when we talk about – if you talk about surgery and when you talk about saying a boy until 18. It implies that she – her womanhood is attached to surgeries-
AMY HOLMES: She had surgery!
BEN FERGUSON: She was a boy!
HILL: That was a very dangerous point-
FERGUSON: She was a boy!…
HILL: Trans identity does not hinge upon surgery. You can have a penis and still be a woman – a trans-woman. That’s the point.
See? Facts are “dangerous” somehow if they offend the easily offended. The point about Janet Mock is this, no one gives a you-know-what that she is now a woman, was a boy, had surgery, or any of it! But she is a “victim” because Piers Morgan brought up her story of being a man who became a woman. A story that Janet Mock wrote a book about! What madness is this? Madness that noted buffoon Marc Lamont Hill, who gets on TV to comment on issues despite his glaring lack of any sense, defends. Damn where is my aspirin?
Via Fox 25:
A State Senator has filed legislation that he says would ‘reaffirm Oklahomans’ Second Amendment rights’ by not requiring law-abiding citizens to obtain a gun license.
State Sen. Nathan Dahm filed Senate Bill 1473, or what he calls the “Piers Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms Without Infringement Act”.
The bill proposes to allow citizens over the age of 18 to open carry loaded or unloaded guns without a license for hunting and target shooting. The bill would also cover military or law enforcement functions; for practice or performance for entertainment purposes; or for lawful self-defense purposes.
“The Second Amendment says the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, and yet when we require our citizens to jump through hoops, pay fees and undergo a process that presumes they’re guilty of something until proven otherwise, their rights are being infringed upon,” Dahm said in a press release. “Senate Bill 1473 simply says Oklahomans can carry firearms in all the places currently allowed by law, but they will no longer be required to obtain a license to do so.”
Piers, of course, cannot grasp the ideals of true liberty. But, I do have one question about the law. Does it do away with concealed carry laws? Or would Oklahomans have to go through the same process to carry a firearm? Apparently, not
It would also be allowed for events related to military or law-enforcement functions; for practice or performance for entertainment purposes; or for lawful self-defense purposes. Places where guns are currently prohibited, such as schools and government facilities, would continue to be off-limits for firearms.
“Oklahomans will still be able to get a license so they could carry in other states that allow reciprocity,” Dahm said. “They just won’t have to have a license in Oklahoma to carry.”
Penn, the ultimate useful idiot says that Obama should issue an executive order committing Ted Cruz and the Tea Party.
Actor and activist Sean Penn said Monday that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.) and other Tea Partiers in Congress need to be committed by executive order.
Such was said to a laughing Piers Morgan on the CNN program bearing his name
SEAN PENN: It is funny, because what you were talking about before we went to the break, you know, I, I was in Port-au-Prince when the shutdown happened. And, and I said to people — they need, I had stuff that it was demanding on me in Port-au-Prince but I, I had to come home. I said, “Listen I, I have to leave Haiti now because I have to travel to the third world county that I come from.”
PIERS MORGAN, HOST: [Laughs]
You have been, you know, this I think, you know, on the forefront of this gun thing. All of these things, and this is also where you get people who think these things.
I think for let’s, let’s go to the Tea Party influence on Congress on this thing. I think they have, there’s a mental health problem in Congress. This would be solved by committing them by executive order, I think, because these our American brothers and sisters. We shouldn’t be criticizing them, attacking them. We should take their — this is a cry for help.
PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You literally commit what …
PENN: I think …
MORGAN: … people like Ted Cruz?
PENN: He’s, he’s my American brother. I want, we think, we should take care of him. He’s in trouble.
MORGAN: [Laughs] Well, actually have him committed.
PENN: Yeah, I thinks it’s a good idea.
PENN: [Laughs] But then you look at, you know, the, look, there’s a lot of reason to take a shot at me and I’m giving people a lot reason to over the years. But the thing you’re talking about and, and the way people’s perception of political positions are, is a direct reaction to their lack of, of their education which is a huge problem that we’re dealing with in the country. And between an uneducated people and the solipsism of the people like Ted Cruz and their party, it’s a poisonous thing.
Good grief, there is indeed an education problem, and it is retarding the mental health of idiots like Penn. People who refuse to understand that Marxism does not work. But, tell you what Sean why don’t you start by ringing my doorbell. See how that works out for you. Let us see what happens when a Marxist troll confronts a patriot who loves America, OK Sean? But, of course Penn might be stupid, but he ain’t that stupid.
How pathetic is our media? A mad man goes on a murderous rampage, killing 12 people, and the media’s first quest seems to be what kind of gun he used. And while they got that story wrong, largely because of their obsession with demonizing the AR-15, which is just a rifle, they continue to miss the politically correct elephant in the room. Powerline does not miss the most obvious question. How in the Hell did Aaron Alexis ever get security clearance?
According to reports, Alexis was arrested in Seattle in 2004 for shooting out the tires of a parked car. Apparently, he did so in a rage because he felt two construction workers had disrespected him.
The Seattle police said today that it referred Alexis’ case to the Seattle Municipal Court for charges of property damage and discharge of a firearm. But there’s no indication that Alexis was ever prosecuted. And a spokesperson for the Seattle City Attorney’s Office claims that it never received the report from police and so did not review the matter for possible charges.
If Alexis had been prosecuted and convicted, I don’t know that he would have gone to jail. But in a healthy, properly functioning society, he would have served time. And he certainly wouldn’t have walked due to faulty paperwork.
But let’s take Alexis’ situation one step further. If Alexis been convicted of discharging a firearm in public, prospective employers who conduct background checks (including, presumably, the Navy) would likely have learned of the conviction. Given the obvious threat posed by someone who shoots guns at cars because he feels disrespected, rational employers would have refused to hire Alexis.
But the civil rights community and the EEOC are inclined to sue employers whose criminal background check policies exclude black applicants in disproportionate numbers, which most such policies do. As an African-American, Alexis could have been a plaintiff in a private suit or a claimant in a government suit.
Gee I wonder why the media is spending less time asking about how he got the job and security clearance than about the weapon he used. Oh yes, narrative!
California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein is renewing her call for new gun-control laws because of Monday’s deadly Navy Yard shooting.
“When will enough be enough?” Feinstein said in a statement Monday evening.
“Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country,” she said. “We must do more to stop this endless loss of life.”
Lets see here. Again, Feinstein the Statist wants to politicize tragic deaths and trample the right of self-defense. Why not look at HOW the shooter at the Naval Yards had security clearance? He had an arrest record after all, and a troubled past.
Aaron Alexis, the Navy vet suspected in the killing of 12 people at Washington’s Navy Yard, had a troubled past that included two previous arrests involving shootings and a “history of misconduct” in the Navy.
Alexis, who friends described as a convert to Buddhism, was arrested in Fort Worth in 2010 after firing a gun into his neighbor’s apartment, leaving her “terrified,” according to a police report.
In addition, he was arrested in 2004 in Seattle for shooting out the tires of a construction worker’s car in an incident he later described as “an anger-fueled blackout.”
So where is Feinstein’s call for better vetting of who is given access to military bases? What of the “multiple weapons” We know he got one of them from a security guard he killed
Two federal officials told the Associated Press that Alexis had an AR-15 assault rifle, a shotgun and a handgun that he took from a police officer at the scene. The two officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss a pending investigation.
Apparently video shows him entering with ONLY a shotgun, so it would seem he got the “AR-15 after he shot the guard as well
Another interesting detail from NBC Washington, which is sadly relevant to the new national conversation on guns we’ll soon be having at the Democrats’ and the media’s urging:
Video also shows the gunman entered with a shotgun, News4′s Jackie Bensen reported. He shot the security guard and continued through the building, but according to what witnesses are telling investigators, by the time the shootings ended, the gunman was seen with a semiautomatic 9 mm pistol and an AR-15 assault rifle.
Authorities are investigating whether the gunman took the security guard’s service weapon – likely a 9 mm pistol – and hid in wait for the first responding D.C. police officers, who would be specially armed with AR-15s, then opened fire and shot one of the D.C. police officers in the legs. It’s unclear if the other officers assisting the wounded officer also were able to retrieve his AR-15.
Details could change, but no matter what the facts are vultures like Feinstein do not care about anything but exploiting this tragedy. They want us disarmed, and they are certainly not above lying.
UPDATE! FBI confirms no AR-15 used in Naval Yard shooting. Via Hot Air
The FBI confirms that the AR-15 was not used in the massacre
FBI Washington field office just confirmed gunman was NOT armed with AR15. Spokesperson says 1 shotgun and 2 pistols recovered
Weapons the shooter seemingly took from guards AT the scene of the shootings. I wonder if David Frum, or Piers Morgan, or Feinstein can tell us what law would have stopped this attack? Maybe if they started focusing LESS on banning guns, and more on real solutions, oh wait, who am I kidding here, that simply is not going to happen. More at Hot Air
Usually after a horrendous shooting, the conventional wisdom on what’s “really” to blame has congealed 24 hours later. Not this time. Alexis didn’t use an “assault weapon,” as you already know if you read Ed’s post. He used a shotgun, the weapon of choice of the vice president of the United States. He was, apparently, seriously mentally ill — paranoia, sleep disorder, hearing voices — but had been treated since at least last monthand hadn’t (yet?) had his Navy security clearance revoked on grounds of mental unfitness. Time magazine published a mini-bombshell last night about a Pentagon IG report that accused the Navy Yard of cutting corners on screening contractors who might pose a security risk (52 convicted felons received routine access), but as far as I know Alexis has never been convicted of a felony. On the contrary, his boss told Reuters that Alexis passed a background check in July after the firm re-hired him and that he had a “secret clearance” and a common access card for the Navy Yard. Presumably that explains how he got into the otherwise highly secure Naval Sea Systems Command building, which houses lots of classified information. Simply put, he had a right to be there.
If only the tragedy pimps were honest brokers who wanted to find out what happened BEFORE screaming for more gun laws they might actually do some good.
Stacy McCain and Matt at Conservative Hideout note how the media fails to report on the all-too-common incidents of violent attacks on Whites by Blacks. We know why the media either ignores the racial elements that drive these attacks, or ignores the attacks altogether. These crimes do not fit the narrative. But, I can guarantee what WILL get the media hopping mad, and it is bound to happen soon. One of these thugs will choose someone with a concealed carry permit. The thug will be shot, and killed. THEN watch the media come flying in to spin that particular incident into a case of racial profiling. Heck we might even see the dead thug given the St. Trayvon treatment while the person who defended their life will be vilified. Then we will have Piers Morgan crying on CNN every night demanding that being shot be made illegal. Then we will see Stand Your Ground Laws attacked. then we will see concealed carry laws attacked. Then it will be racism morning noon and night! Because THEN the media will care because NARRATIVE!
