Filling in for Rush Limbaugh on his Wednesday show, National Review columnist Mark Steyn reacted to all the unfolding drama related to CNN’s Piers Morgan and his anti-gun stance including a petition [2] 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 that’s wrong with their country?”

“Do you know this fellow, Piers Morgan?” Steyn said. “Piers Morgan. He’s 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. It’s not like he’s on the Rush guest host roster or anything. But he has this show on CNN and he’s been ever since the Newtown massacre, he’s being anti-gun. He’s being pro-gun control. He’s actually not in favor of gun control — he just doesn’t think anyone should have guns. He just, he’s basically anti-gun. And when he has a pro-gun guest on, he just hectors them and says ‘You’re a stupid [3] and contemptible man.’”

Steyn, a Canadian citizen and the author of “After America: Get Ready for Armageddon [4],” referred to a tweet [5] from author Joyce Carol Oates likening Morgan’s 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.”
