Gun Control: Breitbart Browbeater And ‘Bullies’ Author Bullies Piers Morgan

Ben Shapiro,’s editor-at-large and author of Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans, last night showed why pro-gun nuts and Tea Party freaks are the real bullies in America. (By publishing this statement, no doubt I am officially now a bully in Shapiro’s eyes. It’s OK, I can live with that.) It’s no wonder the Tea Party clan can only brag eight percent of the American populace. Shapiro attacked Morgan for his sincere and strong anti-gun beliefs, abhorrently claimed he was “standing on the graves” of the murdered Sandy Hook Massacre children, and cut snidely Morgan off at every turn.

READ: Breitbart: Liberals Bully Conservatives To Death, Because, Dan Savage

Right at the beginning of the interview Shapiro — who earlier this week called President Obama a liar and a bully, and said liberals bully conservatives to “death” — pulled out of his jacket and then slammed a copy of the U.S. Constitution in book form on Pier Morgan’s desk. When Morgan talked, Shapiro demanded to wedge himself into the sentence. He was rude, controlling, attacking, and belittling. And at every turn, Shapiro tried to reframe Morgan’s questions into partisan hackery — or just duck and refuse to answer them.

“You have deliberately tried to frame this as a left-wing attack on the American Constitution and the Second Amendment,” said Morgan, objecting to his guests perspective, CNN noted:

“You come in, you brandish your little book…”

“My little book? That’s the Constitution of the United States, our founding document,” Shapiro exclaimed.

“I know what’s in your Constitution,” insisted the host.

“Do you really?” asked the conservative political commentator who turns 29 on Tuesday.

“I’ve been debating this for a very long time,” Morgan stated.

Pushing forward on the issue he’s most passionate about, the host asked Shapiro to explain why he feels a civilian would need an assault weapon:

“They need them for the perspective possibility of resistance to tyranny,” he explained.

“Where do you expect the tyranny to come from?” wondered Morgan.

“It could come from the United States,” came Shapiro’s answer.

“Do you understand how absurd you sound?” asked the host.

“Here’s where you go into the absurd and the bullying,” claimed Shapiro, repeating an assertion he’d made recently in his on-line writings, all the while mocking Morgan’s accent.

“I’m not the one that came in here and accused you of standing on the graves of dead children,” reminded Morgan.

Shapiro’s behavior was despicable.

Oops. There I go, bullying again.

I think they call Mr Shapiro's condition, self re-enforcing delusion. Guys like him won't give up until it's one of his own children that is shot with an assault rifle then the GOP hypocrisy meme will be ON in full force & he will recant what he advocates.

Shapiro is a failed lawyer and an Orthodox Jew. His writing panders to bigoted right-wing Christians. These are the same people who would happily toss Jews under the bus, or perhaps into the railroad boxcar. Hopefully Shapiro won't ever have to discover who his real friends are because they certainly aren't the ignorent bigots his books pander to.
