Piers Morgan vs Ben Shapiro Round 2? The hype is starting to brew

CNN’s Piers Morgan was eviscerated on his show last week by Breitbart’s Ben Shapiro. Ever since, Piers has been itching for a rematch. The former UK tabloid editor has been attempting to taunt Shapiro on Twitter since the two squared off in hopes of getting a second bite at the apple. For now, the apple is ready to be bitten tonight.

But will it really happen?

Shapiro was originally booked to appear on “Piers Morgan Tonight” tonight, but soon learned it would be him against a room full of victims of violence and cancelled. Ben says he was “promised a balanced debate” but Morgan tried to deliver a townhall of victims to make an emotional appeal.

Morgan tried to taunt Shapiro, asking “Do you have a problem looking them in the eye?” Adding, “Grow a pair.”

Ben retorted, “I think you engage in cheap emotional ploys rather than rational discussions. You might call it standing on the graves (of Sandy Hook).”

When what was to be a one-on-one debate turned into Morgan “stacking the deck” became publicly known, Piers claimed Ben “didn’t want to face gun crime victims.” Ben, who outraged Morgan last week when he pointed out that government sometimes becomes tyrannical, responded back, “Tell you what, Piers. I get to bring Holocaust victims (you don’t believe governments can go tyrannical). ‘Balanced,’ my ass.”

Shortly after, the rematch was off.

Then it was back on again.

Shapiro tweeted that Morgan, “has reversed course, now guarantees 2 solo segments. He will undoubtedly continue to exploit SH. But it is back on.”

Ben Shapiro

is a badass.

"Tell you what, Piers. I get to bring Holocaust victims (you don’t believe governments can go tyrannical)."

Morgan

Is getting way too much attention. If we ignore him maybe he'd go away.

Bring On The Victims

I think Shapiro can handle it.

meh watched the 1st interview, not nearly as good as people hype

it to be. shapiro was advocating for more mental screening and more intense background check--i don't even know wtf that means, keeping a registry on every gun owner? so what do they do, hire 2x drug force with half now responsible for breaking in doors to see if guns are locked well in a safe? and to increase mental screening, doesn't that mean the next crisis people will just conveniently go for tightening mental illness definitions and label more americans as mentally ill, even more convenient than attacking the 2nd amendment out front? good thinking shapiro.. you still lost to morgan. he advanced and you backed off, resorting to retarded compromises. the average viewers being schizo about guns, all they need is a sense they are advancing, they are "right", they don't need the silly details in a debate they don't understand anyway.. they just want a 'you backed off because i am right' good feeling and it is a green light for sheep to do whatever they want and however far they want on gun control, and you gave that feeling to them shapiro, dumb#%$

i have an autistic cousin

heaven forbid they extend gun ban on the mentally ill to their "extended family" because hell, my uncle brings my autistic cousin to my place every once in a while when he visits. people who don't see why the convenient bash on mental people is being used in gun control are utter retards

Thanks for typing it all out

so I didn't have too!

I wish someone would ask who the wise people are that are going to decide who is mentally capable of handling firearms and who is not... because if they're looking toward the organization that currently sells guns to mexican drug cartels, then I'm not sure I trust their judgement in deciding who is mentally capable and who is not.

+1

I will not watch.

What else does Ben have to gain?

Nothing!

Stand on your past, proven merits, Ben and refuse to go!

The only thing this fat boy wanker is looking for now is ratings and viewship...DO NOT give it to him, Ben!

"Fat Boy", as Gerald Celente calls him, seeks now ONLY to exploit you as well as the "victims" of Sandy Hoax for his OWN GAIN!

I would NEVER go back now.

Don't go, Ben! He needs you for ratings in the MOST vial and contemptable way and you can ONLY lessen what you have already created.

Don't watch them

I recommend NOT watching or recording these butt heads like Morgan. It only helps their ratings which hurts the Liberty movement.

If you want to see these segments wait until the next day and watch the you tube.

People need to stop watching Morgan's awful show.

People need to stop watching Morgan's awful show. It's keeping the pitiful thing alive. I don't care who he has on it, we should not watch.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

I NEVER watch him!

I only view the clips here or at another LIBERTY website.

I can wait for that wanker/poofter morgan for a few minutes to deny him more ratings.

shapiro has a zionist aroma

shapiro has a zionist aroma fuming off of him. i could only stomach one minute of him until i realized he made my stomach ill. he doesn't know anything about the second amendment. maybe he should go to israel since his grandmother was in a concentraion camp.

your post is contradictory...

shapiro is a "zionist" but his grandmother was in a concentration camp?

that doesn't seem to go together, does it?

blame it on einstein for

blame it on einstein for addressing the jew conference in new york, i think it was in 1947, the jews asked them if they should be zionists, if that was the right thing, and einstein pointed to the guy next to him and said, "he is your leader now."

lots of concentration camp jews became zionists afterwards...

i don't know the details, the name of the people involved, what year? i think it was 1947, some international jew conference somewhere in new york city.

please, dr.

zionism = nazis = white supremists

all jews are NOT zionists

all germans are NOT nazis

all Americans are NOT white supremists

your post seem to fuse these labels together with all of their countrymen and only succeeds in confusing the reader

i hope this clears it up but i'll be back here later, explaining it again

no worries!

i majored in the german

i majored in the german language only because my professor was awesome. but i'm pretty sure the germans are still nazis. even the turks in germany are worshipping nazism, in their ignorance.

lawrence

the germans still have a

the germans still have a religious, collective zeal for legalism

lawrence

i didn't put the caveat in

i didn't put the caveat in there, of "not all of x" - but do i really need to? i've studied german (and was in germany for a very brief stint), i've studied a turkish friend who grew up in germany, and was ignorant of what's going on because he was attuned to his pleasure centers so much and didn't have the discretion to take in real life. he didn't research things. And he was very LEGALISTIC because he grew up in Germany.

He was so insanely legalistic he might as well be German, but he was very kind, just as germans are quite kind, but it doesn't matter, does it? When push comes to shove the "benign" collective can turn F*Cking Evil on a Dime. N'est-ce pas? And that's what germany is, an insane legalistic society that hasn't learned one damn thing from putting the Juden in the Konzentrationschlager.... :-(

lawrence

yeah, i didn't say all jews

yeah, i didn't say all jews were zionists; i was referring to history when a lot of concentration camp jews became zionists because albert einstein directed them towards a zionist spokesperson who was speaking at a jewish conference in new york, c.a. 1946.

i am referring to history.

a lot of jews became zionists. period. and the jews who are ignorant of the new world order might as well be zionists for all intents and purposes, just like the ignorant americans, they might as well be zionists- due to their ignorance. and all the people who call themselves christians and listen to their pastor rant about "Israel first" - they are all zionists pretty much.

it doesn't matter because i'm not jewish and i'm not a zionist. let the americans worry about if they fit into either one or both or neither category.

The Last Shapiro Interview was a Staged Scam

Watch it again and tell me the entire thing wasn't carefully scripted to paint Shapiro as the average American who understands the real meaning of the 2nd amendment. At first he stands strong against taking away our guns. Then at the end he acquiesces into "reasonable gun laws". It was a scripted interview. They're trying to normalize this type of thinking. e.g. "This guy is an expert and seems reasonable and even he approves of "reasonable gun control", like limiting magazine size, banning assault weapons, background checks, a national registry, etc. Don't believe a word Shapiro says. He is NOT on our side.

if you are right then he will absolutely show up tonight...

and "crack" a little more!

we'll soon see...

He'll Be There

...selling us all down the river. As much as I hate to sound conspiratorial, this guy is controlled opposition. The interview doesn't sound like a real back-and-forth. It sounds like two guys reading scripts while auditioning for a part in a play. At the beginning of the interview, Shapiro postures as an unwavering proponent of the 2nd amendment and gun rights. At the end of the interview, Shapiro expresses support for the key components of Obama's gun-grabbing scheme. It also irritates me that Shapiro says the 2nd amendment is in case the government becomes tyrannical "in 50 or 100 years". 50 or 100 years? This President declares wars on his own, murders American citizens, tortures, spies on citizens, classifies everything to hide what he's doing, spends money to the point that it's a threat to the security of our country, and now is trying to grab our guns. 50 or 100 years? The threat exists now!

I hate to agree, but I do.

I really liked it at first, but even by the end of it the first watch I was lukewarm. That "history of mental illness" is BS. They diagnose everyone who feels an emotion with something these days.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

I don't know a whole lot

about Ben Shapiro but he does have balls, and he seems to be able to handle Piss Morgan with no problem.

Anyone care to enlighten me about him.

Ben Shapiro appears to be a snake
