Piers Morgan’s Sarcasm About School Massacre Stokes Anger
(PRISON PLANET) After lecturing Americans for days about the need to eviscerate their second amendment rights, CNN host Piers Morgan stoked further controversy when he sarcastically agreed with a tweet that accused him of being “gleeful” about the Connecticut school massacre because it allowed him to push his anti-gun political agenda.
Morgan, who was fired from British newspaper The Daily Mirror in 2004 for publishing a fake news story, has stoked furore amongst second amendment activists over the course of the past week by using the Sandy Hook shootings to aggressively push his pro-gun control message.
Responding to a Twitter user who remarked, “I think you are somewhat gleeful that a tragedy happened to help you push your cause,” Morgan responded, “Of course I am, you moron.”
Whether sarcasm or not, the CNN host’s brazen response to the charge that he was pleased that the shooting occurred because it enabled him to push his anti-gun agenda, which he also pursued after the ‘Batman’ massacre back in July, was savaged by other tweeters.
“It seems you bask in the glory of being a #PieceOFShit!” said one.
“@piersmorgan is happy all those kids got shot. Deport the sicko Brit now,” added another.
