Filling in for Rush Limbaugh on his Wednesday show, National Review columnist Mark Steyn reacted to all the unfolding drama related to CNNs Piers Morgan and his anti-gun stance including a petition on the White House website wanting to deport the Morgan, saying, How much longer are Americans going to have to put up with some snooty, hoity-toity foreigner coming on the airwaves and telling them everything thats wrong with their country?
Do you know this fellow, Piers Morgan? Steyn said. Piers Morgan. Hes one of these, you know, these snotty-voiced foreigners who came to America and wound up with some big time media gig. OK, not a big time media gig. Its not like hes on the Rush guest host roster or anything. But he has this show on CNN and hes been ever since the Newtown massacre, hes being anti-gun. Hes being pro-gun control. Hes actually not in favor of gun control ” he just doesnt think anyone should have guns. He just, hes basically anti-gun. And when he has a pro-gun guest on, he just hectors them and says Youre a stupid and contemptible man.
Steyn, a Canadian citizen and the author of After America: Get Ready for Armageddon, referred to a tweet from author Joyce Carol Oates likening Morgans plight to that of black victims of Southern lynch mobs, which he called remarkable because it has made an Englishman a member of a victim group.
