In Defense of Brad Pitt’s Mom

Pages: 1 2

Hollywood and the American left love diversity, except when it offends their “progressive” value system.

Witness the reaction to actor Brad Pitt’s mother, Jane, who publicly opposed President Obama’s re-election. Mrs. Pitt’s pro-life, anti-gay marriage statement to her local paper last week enflamed the Tolerance Mob. And her mere expression of dissident political views exposed the glittering hypocrisy of the left-wing “No H8″ campaign.

In a letter to the editor for Missouri’s Springfield News-Leader, Mrs. Pitt responded to another reader who argued that Christians should not support Mitt Romney because of his Mormon faith. Arguing for interfaith tolerance, she praised Romney’s “high morals” and “business experience.” The celebrity mom urged “prayerful consideration” from fellow Christians before voting for Obama — “a man,” she pointed out, “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.”

Self-appointed Tinseltown anti-bigotry cops blew their tops. The Hollywood Reporter labeled Mrs. Pitt’s letter “anti-gay.” Gossip website Global Grind, founded by rap mogul Russell Simmons, called her “homophobic.” Perez Hilton, an L.A.-based gossip website operator and hanger-on to the stars who fronts the “No H8″ gay-marriage movement in California, pounced on Mrs. Pitt as “mommy dearest.”

Hilton angrily scrawled across a photo of Mrs. Pitt with her son: “A vote for Romney is a vote for God.” After taking obligatory potshots at Christians, Hilton, who calls himself the “queen of all media,” fumed: “Ugh! How can one woman birth such a beautiful boy, but have such unattractive views???”

You want ugly? Hilton knows ugly. He’s the same trash-mouth blogger and former beauty pageant judge who attacked Miss USA contestant Carrie Prejean with misogynistic profanities in 2009 because she said she opposed legalizing gay marriage at the federal level in favor of states’ rights to put the question up for a vote.

“She lost not because she doesn’t believe in gay marriage,” Hilton railed. “She lost because she’s a dumb bitch!”

    I'm hoping to hear what Angelina's dad has to say.

  • oldtimer

    She used her 1st ammendment right. I applaud her. I hope her example gives others the courage to do so also.

  • Dave

    Great article, Michelle, and everything you said is so true regarding those ultraleftist hypocritical hollyweird radical fascists!!

  • RonaldCarnine

    Mrs. Pitt has a right to her opinion. She also has a right to express it. That is the American way. Calling her names is childish and foolish. As a Christian, I believe homosexuality is a sin. I also believe that because of the nature of God, he loves "gay" people. However, that does not mean that he approves of the sexuality that is being pushed as just "another alternative". God's Word makes it very clear that homosexuality in all of its variations, is sinful and should not be granted special civil rights status. Mrs. Pitt has made it clear that abortion and homosexuality are wrong. Where is her famous son? Why hasn't he stepped forward to protect his mother's right to free speech. So since my mom passed away several years ago, I'll just say, "you go Mrs. Pitt, some of us are proud of your stand and impressed by your courage.

  • Infidel

    I agree with the lady…she has shown alot of courage and we need more like her. Hats off to her!!

  • davarino

    Mrs. Pitt sounds like a very sweet lady and it looks like Brad loves her. I wonder if he has a feel for how George and Laura Bush felt when he and Jennifer Aniston went off on their daughters. That was awful because they were just children at the time.

  • Adheeb

    I hope Mrs. Pitt's son, Brad, finally comes to an understanding of what these people are really like and turns away from them. God does work in mysterious ways.

  • Steve Chavez

    Will Brad come to the defense of his own mother or will he let others, including his own Hollywood zealots, spit on her?

    We all know of occasions where we have heard siblings saying mean things about their own TO EACH OTHER but when someone else says "Your sister is a ho" then that brother, who has called his sister that to her face too, instead comes to her defense and might even attack his own friend. THAT IS HONOR! IF YOU CAN'T PROTECT THE HONOR OF YOUR OWN FAMILY MEMBERS, WHOSE CAN YOU PROTECT?

    Will Brad though be the Leftist that he is and add to the insults, which they call "reason" and that his mother "is crazy and delusional"?

    I already have list of Hollywood actors that I refuse to watch and to pay for their movie and I eagerly await Brad's response and defense, or lack thereof, of his own mother!

    • Ronald Johnston

      brad pitt's silence is his answer to the yellow-bellies!!!! He is a coward and does not deserve a Mother like the one who claims him as a son!!!! I have not watched a movie in 21 years because of all the yellow-bellies!!!

  • well now

    Mom said nothing wrong. She stated what are public facts and her opinion of Obama, which she has every right to do.
    I'm so sick of these Homosexuals trying to come to peace with their preference by forcing the rest of us to pretend it's normal. It's not. I wo'nt condemn them but it is not the standard practice. One quick look at biology can tell you that. Men and Women were designed for each other not the same sex.

    • Super mom

      I agree. Yeah for Mrs Pitt and Mr Voight!!!!!!' this is a Christian based country, yep folks that would mean the Holy Bible…. Anti-abortion, anti-gay. She has a lot of people and families behind her. Good for her for speaking out and may God send angels charge over her. What you permit…. You promote

    Perez Hilton said, "A vote for Romney is a vote for God."

    The truth indeed finds expression sometimes from the strangest of sources. God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform.

    Yes, not that Romney represents God necessarily, but as between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, a vote for Romney is indeed a vote for God as opposed to Mammon in our national life.

    To Mother Pitt, I strongly recommend a Personal Handgun Self-Defense course, together with lots of practice. Also, it would be prudent to obtain a Concealed Carry Permit.

    • Super mom

      It's weird people that need a hand gun buddy. You are in the minority And big news flash the Almighty Lord God Almighty is going to return and you might wanna get right with Him ASAP!!!!!!!!!

        I totally agree with the sentiment expressed in your post, but I'm curious as to where in the Bible you think it authorizes "the right to defend the life he gives." could you please provide me with the book, chapter and verse? I would like to read anything that even comes close to doing that.

        It would seem to me that a person is authorized to "kill" in the line of duty, such as a policeman or a soldier, but this is inferred and not stated. The necessary inferrence would be in the case of Cornellius, a roman centurian and soldier in the book of Acts. After he became a Christain, he was still a soldier and would be required to kill if necessary in pursuit of his service.

        I am a Christain and I have a CHL and many firearms. I don't agree with the position held by super mom.

        • tagalog

          Well, I don't know that there's any particular Biblical passage devoted to the idea that a person has "the right to defend the life he gives" (I assume that "he" is God), but there IS the story of Moses striking down the Egyptian overseer in defense of himself or others. On the other hand, there's the story of Jesus admonishing Peter for striking the Roman soldier with his sword when they came to arrest Him. But then there's the story of Samson bringing down the building on multitudes of those who would mock the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Then, of course, although it doesn't involve the use of deadly force, there IS the Book of Job, who defends his life against Satan's attacks and ultimately receives God's blessings for doing so. Of course, Cain did strike down Abel and was punished, but then Jacob wrestled with the angel and was blessed. And of course, included in God's gift of Canaan to the Hebrews was the obligation, endorsed by God, to drive out the Canaanites, killing them if necessary.

          You don't mean "inferred;" you mean "implied."

        • tagalog

          I don't recall any part of the Bible being concerned with the morality of using force, deadly or otherwise, in defense of one's self or others. It doesn't seem to have come up in the Biblical stories. My personal take on that is that the books of the Bible were written by people in a context in which personal self-defense and the killing of one's enemies was taken for granted as a fact of life.

          Also, the Bible deals with God's relationship with mankind, not with individuals defending themselves from other humans, so it's not coming up seems understandable.

          • Ricky Michael

            Very thoughful answer. I think I agree with your assessment. I was just wondering if I had missed something somewhere. And, yes, the right of self defense would be implied. There is also a term called "Neccessary Inference" which is a logical conclusion that is drawn as they relate to known facts. Here is an example.

            The New Testament teaches that valid baptism requires both belief and repentance (Mk. 16:16; Acts 2:38), and inasmuch as babies can not believe, nor do they need to repent (seeing they have no sin), it follows necessarily that infants are not amenable to baptism. The logical use of necessary inference eliminates the sectarian practice of “infant baptism.”

        I DO need a handgun buddy. Will you be my handgun buddy? I could shoot your handgun and you could shoot mine. As members of a minority, we might be able to claim certain preferences on a collective basis. We could also go to church together and try to get right with God. After all, Jesus said that whenever two or more were gathered in His name, there He was.

  • tagalog

    Wow, you must be really smart.

  • flyingtiger

    You will note that the leftwingers always attack the family. I am losing respect for Brad Pitt because of his silence, He could have defended his mom while appeasing his hollywood cronies.

  • Ghostwriter

    I've got a feeling that Brad Pitt might not want to open his mouth and defend his mom,lest he lose any work that he might want. I've been on a couple of anime websites and sometimes I've voice my opinion of a subgenre of anime and manga called yaoi and yuri. Basically,they're also known as Boy's Love and Girl's Love anime and manga. Sometimes,I've voiced my opinions on this and I've been attacked for doing so. For one thing,I don't want to touch BL or GL stuff because it's not for me. I was almost banned for expressing that opinion on ONE website because I expressed it in a very harsh manner. Even some of my more milder criticisms of this on another anime website brought nearly the same reaction from someone else.
    I think the reaction to this is stupid but it intimidated Brad Pitt enough to simply remain silent. I think in some ways,I know how he feels. I admit that Mrs. Pitt's views may seem old-fashioned but they're her opinions and no one has the right to threaten her life just because she stated her opinions.

  • Soothsayer

    We need more such truthtellers and fewer fascists who censor inconvenient truths. Truths like a homosexual mind in a heterosexual body, like a female mind in a male body, is a sure sign that something went wrong somewhere, in either nature and/or nurture. Homosexuality is clearly a disorder, and it is immoral to treat a disorder as though it's not a disorder. Also, it's ironic that homosexual groups "discriminate" against other sexual aberrants, like consenting-adult incestuous people and consenting-adult exhibitionists, and polygamists. Homosexual groups have not included these other sexual aberrants in their rainbow coalition. The hypocrisy is delicious.

  • FPF

    Apparently Mrs. Pitt has much more higher moral value based on Christian believe than all that of the leftists, gays/lesbians and "baby living right" abominators combined.

      I find it ineresting that gay people have no qualms whatsoever about imposing their sense of values on the rest of us regardless of consequences, but are outraged by points of view that deviate from theirs. I speak particularly of same-sex marriage and its effect on the commonly-held and universal approach to marriage; that can be smashed to flinders, rightly or wrongly, in the name of equality or some such, but let someone say they're wrong and it's name-calling and death threats. How easily threatened such people are! Their position must be very precarious.

  • Kim

    Why is it, that if you are pro gay marriage you have the right to shove your views down everyones throat? But if your against gay marriage then you can't even voice your opinion? It has become a very sad world indeed! I applaud you Mrs. Pitt!! You statement needed to be said and I am so sorry that you have been threatened, ridiculed and spoken to so horribly. Please, look at the sources…and move on! You keep your high morals! Whether Brad stands up for you or not…I personally thank you for your statements!!!
