There's a petition going around asking the government to deport Justin Bieber.
Seems reasonable. It's either that, or start bombing Canada until they come get him.
The petition doesn't beat around the bush: "Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card."
And now the petition at WhiteHouse.gov, which the Los Angeles Times reported was created six days ago, has passed the 100,000-signature mark. Which means the Obama administration is required to offer an official response. Wednesday at 12:45 p.m. (PST), the total was at 118,713 signatures.
It reads, "We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive and drug-abusing Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people, but he is also a terrible influence on our nation's youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."
Well ... OK. Justin Bieber weighs about 95 pounds. Some of us just don't feel threatened by Justin Bieber.
The Los Angeles Times reported there's a counter-petition circulating, asking the government not to deport Bieber, which had 1,752 signatures as of 12:45 p.m. (PST) Wednesday.
Do we really have nothing better to do?
The pro-Bieber petition reads: "The whole idea of Justin Drew Bieber getting deported is completely unfair. He doesn't deserve this. ... With your help, we can stop it. He's human. He's not perfect. The media sees the bad side of him. Please. He's saved so many lives. Including mine. A lifesaver shouldn't deserve this."
Apparently some parents out there aren't doing their jobs.
The Washington Times said it may be "weeks, months or even years" before the pro-deportation petition is addressed.
Wouldn't it be awesome if this becomes a campaign issue in 2016? They would have record voter turnout.
Bieber has been in the news lately for all sorts of things: allegedly egging his neighbor's house, allegedly drag racing while intoxicated in Miami Beach, selling his mansion in Calabasas before his neighbors get out the torches and pitchforks ... that sort of thing.
Then again, in that neighborhood, they'd probably have the servants do it. But you get the idea.
