Liberals Attack Brad Pitt’s Mother For Having Her Own Opinion

I will admit, when I began blogging, I never expected to have to discuss anything related to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. As I write their names, I feel sleazy, as if I work for some gossip rag. However, their names have crossed my path recently as Pitt’s mother, Jane Pitt, wrote a simple letter to her local newspaper, The Springfield News-Leader. But while I may, in passing, be forced to discuss the celebrities, I promise you, I will not be offering any lame contraction of Brad and Angelina’s names.

Jane’s letter was a simple one, urging Christians to vote for Mitt Romney over President Obama due to beliefs concerning gay marriage and abortion. It’s pretty standard fare for bible-belt America and, undoubtedly, similar to thousands of letters being printed in local newspapers across the country. This is not a story, in and of itself. The real story comes as this poor woman has been abused and brow-beaten into cowering from the oh-so-tolerant left that condemns her for… well, stating an opinion.

The entirety of the letter sent to the newspaper reads,

“I have given much thought to Richard Stoecker’s letter (“Vote for Mormon against beliefs,” June 15). I am also a Christian and differ with the Mormon religion.

But I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon.

Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney’s opponent, Barack Hussein Obama — a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.

I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility.”

Fine. The woman has beliefs, and she shared them in a local newspaper that welcomes letters from the community. People are free to agree or disagree with her sentiment, and there is no harm done. But Jane’s letter has outraged the left and they’re all but grabbing torches and pitchforks to show her the face of leftist “tolerance”.

The Hollywood Reporter, within days, attacked Jane Pitt and labeled her comments “anti-gay”, an apparently catch-all phrase for someone who does not support same-sex marriage. It is an important distinction to note that many people do not have a problem with homosexuals, but do not believe in same-sex marriage. But it’s easier to smear them as “anti-gay”, just as it is easier to smear those who disagree with Obama’s policies as “bigots”.

The New York Daily News went further and claimed that Brad Pitt’s mother unleashed an “anti-gay, anti-Obama fury in letter.” Fury? Come on…

Of course, Tweets, not subject to the laughable modicum of journalistic “integrity” as the aforementioned rags, have been even more unkind: (Note: foul language up ahead)

“Brad Pitt’s mom wrote an anti-gay pro-Romney editorial. Kill the bitch.”

“Brad Pitt’s mom, die,”

“Fuck you, brad pitt’s mom, the gay community made your kid a star, you whacko,”

“Brad Pitt’s mom is a dumb cunt.”

WND.com spoke briefly with Jane after the eruption of liberal hate, and the broken woman refused to comment about the uproar. While she was polite, she was fearful of retaliation and conveyed “fear and despair”. As WND reported, “Even her thank you, however, was said in a subdued manner laden with heaviness of heart.”

This is thoroughly unacceptable, but not altogether, surprising. The much referenced, but seldom-seen, liberal tolerance is well known to anyone on the right who has vocalized their opinions. While honest critiques are welcomed, outright threats and visceral vulgarities are not.

This outpouring of hatred from the left is even more ironic as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are outspoken liberals who are staunch champions of gay-issues and supporters of same-sex marriage. While others may feel free to disagree, I have not seen an outpouring of death threats and extreme vulgarities directed towards the far more vocal Hollywood couple. So why the double standard? Could it be that liberals are not actually seeking tolerance?

Don’t worry, though. According to Britain’s The Daily Mail, Jolie has asked Pitt to “educate” his mother and “teach his mother not to be so outspoken about same-sex marriage, especially since the celebrity couple clearly support it.” What is happening to this world where children are taking up the cause of “re-education” to force their parents to think as they do?

Jon Voight, however, the father of Angelina Jolie, has come to Jane’s defense. One of the few celebrities with enough acting clout to “come out” as a conservative in leftist Hollywood, Voight has voiced his support saying, “Good for her”.  I wonder if Jolie, the head of the Ministry of Truth for the Voight family, will be “re-educating” her father.

As much as I hate the idea of blogging about a celebrity couple, I take solace in knowing that this story isn’t about them. It’s about the obvious double-standard the left enforces and a poor woman who has been scared into silence for doing what should come easily in a free society. These stories are becoming far too common and we need to do something about it. Make these stories a topic of conversation amongst your friends. Outline the ridiculousness of the “tolerance” of the left. Do not be afraid of cultural bullies that seek your agreement through intimidation.

    Have you knowest how gay people become enrages and vulger, as well hateful and violent when you have a different opinion that doesn’t support them. People don’t hate them, they just don’t agree with their life style, and also disagree with their thinking that two men or two women are husband and wife in a marriage. They are not and will never be a husband and wife. No matter how they want to be they are not in a relationship as a man and a woman are. So, therefore, it is not a marriage. They need to get over it and get a life. Congrats to Jane Pitt for her courage to speak out against Obama and gay marriage and values.

    During many long years in association with Law Enforcement, the message always is well known. the ‘Same Sex’ relationships are overwhelmingly wrought with violence requiring Police intervention, far more often than the Traditional Family ever requires. ‘Same Sex’ relationships are in equal dis functionality with the ‘Feral’ groups, feebly attempting to pass themselves off as ‘family’ structures.

    The Feral groups difference is that they ‘Spawn’ prolifically, now achieving the dubious record as ‘out (in?) breeding’ with their Perpetual Dependency Addicted, Parasitic mentality. Career Repeat Offenders are the result of that ‘spawning’. The Traditional Families, that historically formed a successful, prosperous, economically Sustainable Nation, are now being Forced by subsidized ‘Progressive Inclusive, Diverse’ pressures, into predictable decline. The eventual outcome is Not pretty (to say the least)…if History be known.

    I know this is a bit redundant, but this is just business as usual for the liberal, queer crowd. The only free speech they want to allow is that which pleases the libs. The only answer is, as stated at the end of this article, to stand up to the bullies. If they can cow conservatives, with their hate tactics they win, and that can’t be allowed.

    The leftists/liberals do not believe in freedom of speech or thought for anyone disagreeing with them. Their double standand is SO obvious yet the media continues to attempt to shut down anyone with a conservative point of view. Our Constitution is under violent attack from the left. Bill s.3369 comes up for a vote on July 16th, 2012; if it passes, this bill will gut our First Amendment; the guarantees of freedom of speech, etc. will be effectively quashed by this heinous bill. I’m glad that Mrs. Pitt spoke out but having to be afraid to speak out is something that is found in a country with gestopo mentality and that is exactly what is happening in the United States all because of the liberals and their underhanded and cowardly tactics – they are so very afraid of the truth and they cannot bear to deal with the facts; that’s why they are doing whatever they want in their attempts to ‘silence’ anyone who disagrees with them.

    Davy Crocket, Patrick Henry, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, St Michael
    the Archangel are on the side of the brave genuine Lady, who wrote in defense
    of traditional American modesty! The awful man-made plague of AIDS, is
    the hideous trap for those who violate God’s plans for clean “family-restructure!”
