At the Daily Caller, Charles C. Johnson (the “good” Charles Johnson) has a piece titled In England, Piers Morgan joked about shooting rivals, said homeowners who kill burglars should not be prosecuted.
CNN host and outspoken gun-control advocate Piers Morgan once joked about shooting professional enemies and separately wrote that he was a “rabid fascist” who wanted burglars tortured after a “decent period of cattle-prodding, testicle electrode treatment, and slow gentle skewering over hot coals.”
. . . .
“So the real question is, if I had a gun with just two bullets, who would I shoot?” Morgan said during the May 2006 interview.
“In the end,” wrote Hardy, “he can’t choose between them, so he opts for a clean shot to take out Hislop and a ricocheting hit to mortally wound both Clarkson and Gill.”
Charles explains that, in a separate piece, Morgan railed about the numerous burglaries he had experienced in England, a country with strict gun control. Studies show that property crimes like the ones Morgan complained of are disproportionately common in countries like England where the populace is largely unarmed. “I wouldn’t shoot anyone because, like most people in this country, I’m not licensed to carry a gun,” Morgan says in the piece. He added, speaking of burglars: “I want them erased from life, all of them. Preferably after a decent period of cattle-prodding, testicle electrode treatment, and slow gentle skewering over hot coals.”
If you have a gun, such brutal torture is not necessary. You can simply shoot the intruder to defend your life.
This is common, by the way. Fringe leftists who shout and get self-righteous about a topic often threaten to engage in the very behavior they decry. Fringe leftists (Comic Book Guy Bill Schmalfeldt comes to mind) love to scream about rape and how their favorite right-wing target doesn’t care about rape victims — and then, on a different day, make comments about the rape of their right-wing enemies, and publish drawings of their right-wing enemies being raped.
So it doesn’t surprise me a bit to see Piers Morgan, Mr. Anti-Gun and Anti-Violence, fantasizing about shooting and torturing people. This is what the fringe left does.
