There is a talk show host by the name of Alex Jones. Alex is adamant about the second amendment and it’s statement about the right to bear arms. Alex is a loud mouthed, over bearing American who cannot carry on a decent conversation. He is a bully commentator with little class. Alex would like to deport Pierce Morgan for his stand on Gun Control.
Hey Alex while you are busy defending the second amendment how about the right of free speech enjoyed by Americans under the same constitution (oh and yes, this right also applies to non-Americans, legally resident in the United States, like Pierce Morgan).
Are you saying that when you have a disagreement with another person your solution is to run them out of the country? If this is the answer, you should have been long gone years ago. You speak your mind and you have a huge platform to do it. How would you like your platform removed?
I am not a fan of Pierce Morgan but what I saw was a man trying to have a discussion with you. You spent most of your time screaming and acting exactly like the image that most people in other countries have of Americans. I happen to agree with Pierce Morgan, we need stricter gun controls, we need to curb the violence. No one is saying turn in your hunting rifles or hand guns. What we are saying is please have some decent control of the weapons so more children and innocent people are not killed. 30,000 deaths by guns a year in America is simply not acceptable.
So Alex instead of kicking people out you disagree with, why not try something new. Why not try to understand where they are coming from and when you have an opportunity to have a decent conversation try to show some respect. You are the school bully of talk radio. To call Pierce Morgan trash is unacceptable and if you had one ounce of decency you would apologize. Hey, you found a secret, shock radio works. The concept that people in America are followers of you and are of the same mindset is very unsettling.
You are cut from the same cloth Alex as the folks from the Westboro Baptist Church, you just have a different agenda. (These are the hate mongers who say that God hates America and Canada). To those who are upset with people who disagree with you about guns, you should be proud to live in a country that allows freedom of speech. It is a great gift, embrace it and you might just learn something.
I remember doing a show a few years ago where I interviewed Marc Emery a local pot activist. I was so stuck on my prejudiced view point that I did not hear a word of what that Marc was saying. Marc is in jail now and some would say rightfully so. All I know is I could have conducted a better interview and I may have learned a few things. I was rude and disrespectful to Marc and it did not accomplish anything.
What we need is constructive dialogue not one sided shouting matches.
If Alex Jones is the spokesperson for those of you who have guns I feel sorry for you. He does not represent you in good light, not even a dim light. He is the image of the brash bully, the overbearing American that I am sure most people do not want to associate with, but, perhaps I am wrong.
This is not about right wing or left wing this is about human decency and respect. Mr Jones these things are lacking in your talk format. I doubt that you will have a chance to read this but if you do I am sure your rant will be hard hitting, and I will be deemed trash.
