“Scary,” “Undignified,” “Unedifying”

After labeling Alex Jones “scary” for his pro-second amendment rant on CNN, Piers Morgan and his guests proceeded the following night to joke about murdering Jones in cold blood.
Morgan, who has built his gun control argument on the justification of reducing violence in America, called Jones’ aggressive on-air defense of the right to bear arms “undignified” and “unedifying,” yet just 24 hours later he was laughing and joking about gunning down Jones with a semi-automatic weapon.
Watch the clip above and decide for yourself how “undignified” and “unedifying” the conduct of Morgan and his guests was as they mockingly threatened to shoot Jones for his political opinion on gun control.
“I don’t care what the justification is that you’re allowed in this country to own a semi-automatic weapon – much less a handgun. But what do you need a semi-automatic weapon for? The only reason I think you’d need it is, Piers, challenge Alex Jones to a boxing match, show up with a semi-automatic that you got legally and pop him,” said Daily Beast sports columnist Buzz Bissinger.
Abby Huntsman (Huffington Post) : “I’d love to see that… [laughter] in uniform.”
Piers Morgan: “I’ll borrow my brothers uniform.”
So what’s the takeaway from this “undignified” and “unedifying” exchange? Turn in your guns or we will shoot you?
When conservatives merely hint at violence even in the context of satire, the liberal blogosphere and the corporate networks explode with feigned outrage, yet when a prime time CNN host and his guests make light of murder, it’s no big deal.
Piers Morgan has spent weeks rhetorically assaulting the constitutional rights of Americans in the name of preventing mass murders in America, yet then proceeds to make fun of murdering people on his prime time CNN show.
Imagine if Alex Jones had joked about assassinating Piers Morgan. What do you think the reaction would have been then?
Is CNN comfortable with one of its main hosts making veiled murder threats live on air?
