Deport Justin Bieber Drive Gains a Supporter: Virginia Senator Mark Warner

Justin Bieber

A drive to deport Justin Bieber has either jumped the shark, or entered the realm of calculated political ploy.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), running for reelection this year, told a Virginia radio station that he would add his name to a White House petition to deport the pop star.

“As a dad with three daughters, is there some place I can sign?” he said, when asked about the We The People petition that has passed the 100,000 threshold to merit an official response from the Obama administration. More than 245,000 have signed it thus far.

Warner followed that up with a Twitter link to the segment from the radio show and the message, “It’s true. I’m not a Belieber.”

Bieber is a Canadian in the United States on a work visa.

Given that pollsters have jumped in to measure Bieber’s popularity, or unpopularity, it’s hard to think that Warner will be the only candidate to weigh in on the question of deportation, even if it sounds like a joke.

But imagine if fellow pop singer Clay Aiken enters the race for a North Carolina congressional seat — would he be forced to take a position? Or maybe all candidates will be asked the question, albeit after some more poll testing.

      Dude..seriously. .out down the meth pipe. There’s mote important things in this world we could be dealing with other than this self absorbed little twit. The fact that the White House has to respond on the topic shows how messed up those 250000+ petitioners are. C’mon, man! !

    5. John Shea says:

      Bravo to Senator Warner and the other 245,000 patriotic Americans who have recognized this Canadian menace to our way of life, our children, our ears and our hairstyles!

      • Stoopid Americans says:

        Silly Americans, you guy’s are pathetic.

      • big daddy D says:

        Lol! Stop trolling, john. Beiber’s too stupid to warrant deportation. That senator has jumped on the bandwagon.

        • John Shea says:

          Anonymous is right, Big Daddy D! We should send Bieber back, followed by the US army. INVADE the place, I say! We only tried five times during the 1812 War. Okay, all our invasions failed then, but the Canadians wouldn’t stand a chance now. And the two hundredth anniversary of our last invasion in 1814 is this year. We could seize their vast strategic maple syrup reserves and corner the world market. Sweet!
