Piers Morgan gets owned by Ben Shapiro, refers to Constitution as "your little book"

You have to hand it to Piers Morgan for inviting an rational, informed Constitutional conservative onto his program last night. Author and Breitbart Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro came ready with the facts and prepared for Morgan's ad hominem and insults.

Within the first 15 seconds of the interview, it was clear that Shapiro wasn't going to let Morgan pin him in the corner as a "bad guy" who stands against victims of massacres like Sandy Hook for merely supporting his Constitutional rights.

Morgan opened with a question asking Ben, "Why am I off the rails [on the gun issue]?" referring to a tweet Ben has sent previously that said, "Piers Morgan...has been off the rails for days in the wake of the massacre at Sandy Hook."

Unfazed, Shapiro responded:

"Honestly, Piers, you've kind of been a bully on this issue. Because what you do — I've seen it repeatedly on your show — what you tend to do is you tend to demonize people who differ from you politically by standing on the graves of the children of Sandy Hook, saying they don’t seem to care enough about the dead kids. If they cared more about the dead kids they would agree with you on policy."

Outraged, exposed, and disarmed of his #1 tactic, Piers was left with nothing to say other than, "How dare you."

Shapiro didn't back down from that stance, telling Piers he had seen him do it repeatedly.

Shapiro laid his groundwork for the debate that was about to unfold by handing the CNN host a copy of the Constitution. And as Piers tried his typical arguments on Shapiro, the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution was the number one platform on which Ben would base his stance on guns.

One of the smartest plays to have when you enter a hostile conversation is to understand the opposing view on the subject your arguing, which is how Piers Morgan's "desire to stop the killings" was exposed as nothing other than demagoguery.

Ben challenged Morgan to explain why he just wanted to ban "assault" rifles when the guns most responsible for gun-related deaths are hand guns.

"Why don't you care about handguns in Chicago?" he asked Piers.

Morgan stated that he supports the rights of Americans to "defend themselves with a handgun or a pistol."

Shapiro pointed out that is not the purpose of American's rights to own guns. It's not simply self-protection or hunting, but to resist government tyranny.

"The basis for the Second Amendment is not really about self defense, and it's not about hunting," Shapiro said. "It's about resistance to government tyranny. That’s what the Founders said, and that’s what the right believes in this country."

"Which tyranny are you fearing, yourself?" Piers asked in a failing attempt to mock Ben.

"I fear the possibility of a tyranny rising in the country in the next fifty to a hundred years. Let me tell you something, Piers. The fact that my grandparents and great grandparents in Europe didn't fear that is why they're now ashes in Europe. So this kind of leftist revisionist history where there's never any fear of democracy going usurpatious or tyrannical, is just that. It’s fictitious," Shapiro sharply responded.

With subsequently no response to such a powerful statement, Piers emptily accused Shapiro of wanting to "do nothing" about mass shootings. Clearly not the case, as Ben responded by articulating his thoughts on what could be done to deter these types of mass shootings from occurring.

In a bizarre attempt to isolate Shapiro, Morgan revealed a letter urging support for an assault weapons ban co-signed by Ronald Reagan.

"One of the great right-wing presidents of our time agreed with me," Piers pompously stated before, again, asking Shapiro to justify "why an American needs an assault weapon?"

Apparently unaware that, unlike most on the left, people on right don't all stand on one blanket platform on every single issue, Shapiro informed Piers that he doesn't have to agree with Reagan on every single issue, and reiterated his point on the purpose of the 2nd Amendment and government tyranny.

Clearly frustrated this is when Piers went, as Ben described days earlier, "off the rails."

Piers accused conservatives of being the ones "deliberately" trying to make the gun control issue a "left wing attack on the American Constitution and the 2nd Amendment. That's exactly what you try to do — you come in, and you brandish your little book as if I don't know what's in there."

Yes, Piers Morgan did refer to the United States Constitution as "your little book" while trying to win a debate about one of it's most important Amendments.

And despite Shapiro's clear answer earlier in the debate, Piers continued to ask for an answer as to why Americans should be allowed to purchase these guns.

"Do you genuinely believe your own government is going to turn on you in a way that you require an AR-15 to challenge them? You really believe that will happen in modern-day America? Is that what you think?" Piers mockingly questioned.

"They may not turn on me. They may not turn on my children. But the fact is this, history is replete with democracies going tyrannical," Shapiro explained. "It has happened. It happened in France in the 19th century. It happened in Spain in the last century. It happened in Germany. It happened in Italy. It happened in Japan."

"Do you understand how absurd you sound?" Piers asked, again trying to belittle the point Shapiro was making.

Ben called Piers out for his bullying tactics, again.

"Here’s where you go into the bullying....For weeks now, you have been saying that anybody who disagrees with your position is absurd, idiotic, and doesn’t care about the dead kids in Sandy Hook. And then when I say that’s a bullying tactic, you turn around and say that I’m bullying you."

Great job, Ben.

If you're finding yourself in situations where people are questioning, attacking or merely confused over what's going on in the current gun debate, I urge you to watch the entire 13 minute interview.

Make sure to tweet Ben and tell him thanks for defending "our little book."

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"
