Mark Steyn sounds off
on CNN’s Piers Morgan

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:sparky86, 12/26/2012 6:30:47 PM

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 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

Comments:
OK, aside from this coming from a Canadian citizen, it´s true that we shouldn´t that have to import anti-American rhetoric

I don´t think there was any satire involved. I think he meant what he said.

I had Joyce Carol Oats on my to read list. Now I can cross her off. What a waste of time that would be.

Steyn is my favorite of Rush´s regular subs, & he has his U.S. citizenship now IIRC.

I don´t believe Steyn has American citizenship. He has landed immigrant status, so he´s legally permitted to reside and work in the U.S., but he´s still a Canadian citizen.

Steyn was, as usual, brilliant on Rush´s show today.

Stuart Varney, on FOX Business, also criticized Morgan. Varney, another immigrant from England, spoke of wanting to form a society of people who are immigrants and like the US, and don´t want it changed.

Are some people too dense to realize that Steyn is aware that he talks exactly like Morgan etc. The difference is, he makes sense and is funny. Did I hear him say that President Obama is going back to Hawaii as soon as he finishes off the "Physical Cliff" discussion, to work on his tan? Or was it my imagination?

His wonderful ability to put a humorous spin on some of the bile inducing idiocy that we must increasingly endure from "great thinkers" these days make me kind of sad for those who ´don´t get it´.

Mark does not speak ´hoity toity´ like Morgan - his accent is one of the world - he has overtones of Aussie, South London, US and Canadian all rolled into one - defiitely not ´hoity toity´. His sense of humor is incomparably witty and perceptive.

Contrary to #5, Mark Steyn is a treasure! Piers Morgan is a self-aggrandizing, hateful creature who thinks of himself more highly than he ought. If one cannot discern the difference, then he/she just isn´t paying attention.

Steyn was mocking Morgan by mocking himself as a ´foreign-sounding´ fellow coming on American airwaves and complaining about what´s wrong with America. You think he doesn´t hear these same complaints from the lefties who troll conservative outlets?

I think his point was to let Morgan have his say, showing his ignorance himself - not force him out of the country for what he says. It´s not our way. Or are WE now practicing First Amendment for me but not for thee?

The folks at an ad agency I once worked for thought it would be "classy" - is the word I presume they use - to have a receptionist with an English accent. I thought it was cheesy, just like Piers and his Brit cohorts on t.v. Why oh why do they hire them when there are innumerable competent Americans. Except for Stuart Varney, who I really like, I don´t know that Fox has any Brits... Good for them.

"Landed Immigrant" is a Canadian immigration status pertaining to non-Canadians who are legally able to live and work in Canada.

The U.S. equivalent status is "Resident Alien", which is what Mr. Steyn would be, unless he has become a U.S. citizen.

Between my wife and I, we have been both... just sayin´.

#6 is right - it was tongue-in-cheek humor, although loaded with truth as it is his trademark.
#13 I´m a big fan of Stuart Varney. I hope he can start a loyal-immigrants society.
It wou8ld be great to have a Steyn and Stuart show. I know it´s mixing a last name with a first name but it´s catchy. They both make more sense than most American-born politicians. When you think about it, they are a great deal like the Colonial Patriots leading up to 1776.

Welsh born and a US citizen . I get along with most Americans , I get an occasional remark like you got a funny accent.Nothing wrong with Mark , I listen to him when he subs for Rush. Stuart he thinks before he speaks and mannerisms are excellent for us viewers.Now from a fellow UK transplant Piers tends to come across with a chip on his shoulder and the UK rag ( newspaper)he managed I would not personally give it time of day. It´s on a par with the left wing Guardian. I was surprised that comments did not address Amendment 2 of the US Constitution . A well regulated Militia, being necesaary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.One of the main reasons our forefathers wrote in Amendment 2 was to insure that the Government did not usurp their authority by subjugating it´s citizens.

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy.

In 2011, the Department of Justice raided Gibson Guitar facilities in Memphis and Nashville, alleging a violation of the so-called Lacey Act, a law that bans the importation of certain kinds of wildlife, plants and wood. At the time of the raid, Gibson Guitars CEO Henry Juszkiewicz told Hugh Hewitt on his radio show that the feds confiscated tonewood imported from India for the guitar Gibson manufacturers which would result in a cost of $2 to $3 million for his company. At a great expense in legal fees and time, Juszkiewicz fought the federal government tooth and nail.

Left-leaning Daily Beat columnist Kirsten Powers, who recently revealed how she lost her health coverage under Obamacare, slammed the Obama administration’s efforts to deal with the metastasizing Affordable Care Act Tuesday night.

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume told Hugh Hewitt Tuesday that the President Barack Obama and other Democrats’ partisan rhetoric is unprecedented. “There’s no doubt about that, and you know, I’ve never seen, actually, partisan attacks, where you simply are attacking the other party outright by name, calling the other party out, is something a little unusual,” Hume said. “I’m accustomed to seeing, I mean, it’s done in one form or another, and it has been for years. But I’ve never seen it done by a president himself to the extent that it’s been done by this president

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an "act of love" for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. The comments came during an event marking the 25th anniversary of the presidency of George H. W. Bush at the library and museum that bears the name of the Bush patriarch.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Wellington -He may be only eight months old. But Prince George made an assured appearance on his debut royal tour this morning. Arriving in New Zealand on the first day of a three-week trip Down Under, the third in line to the throne took the windswept welcome in his stride, although he looked a little chilly in a cream jumper and shorts. Scroll down for video -With a lifetime of royal engagements ahead of him, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are understandably protective of their young son. Indeed, his appearance today was only the second time he has been

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t
