Obama: “If they bring a Knife, You bring a Gun”

Well, Ben Shapiro brought a gun Wednesday night.

He started out the interview by handing Mr. Morgan a pocket copy of the Constitution of the United States, which Piers later angrily slamed down, saying,  “You come in, you brandish your little book….. ”

But Ben obviously had his number.  He said night after night Morgan had “stood on the graves of children” to push his agenda and used other bullying tactics common by the left to avoid an honest debate, to which Morgan said:

“How dare you!” in his proper English accent.

“How dare you!”

And then he proceeded to use his usual bullying style in several ways – citing Mark Kelly’s stand on gun control (who cares?), using, as he has the children, sympathy for Kelly’s wife, Ms. Giffords, to try the “you just don’t care” tactic.  He called up Ronald Reagan from the grave – calling him right wing – because Reagan had made some statement in favor of gun control, to which Shapiro replied, “So?  No, I don’t agree with Ronald Reagan on his position.” (Again, what difference does it make what Ronald Reagan thought about it way back when?)

Then, my favorite:  Piers finally (in my opinion, in frustration) said to Ben, “Do you know how absurd you sound?”

Thus using the classic Alinsky tactic of ridicule.

All of which proved the point made in the beginning.

Oh, if we just had more like Ben Shapiro…..

See video and transcript of the interview:

P. S.: I am going to add this fact about Piers Morgan.  He should not have been hired by CNN in the first place because he is totally dishonest.

Excerpted from a BBC article of May 14, 2004: Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan has been sacked after the newspaper conceded photos of British soldiers abusing an Iraqi were fake.

In a statement the Mirror said it had fallen victim to a “calculated and malicious hoax” and that it would be “inappropriate” for Morgan to continue.

The Queen’s Lancashire Regiment (QLR) said the Mirror had endangered British troops by running the pictures.
