Where is Brad Pitt? He has been strangely silent during the scandal that has rocked his mother during the past week. Jane Pitt has been receiving death threats for simply stating her pro-Romney opinion in a local paper, and Brad Pitt has done — and said — nothing to defend her.
In case you missed it, Jane Pitt wrote a response that was printed in her local paper, Missouri’s Springfield News-Leader. Jane was responding to a piece that encouraged Christians not to vote for Romney because Romney is a Mormon. Jane Pitt countered by encouraging Christians to reflect upon Romney’s positive character traits, to take time to pray before voting and to consider the agenda of 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.”
Jane’s letter to the editor shocked Hollywood and the liberal community like a 9.5 earthquake. How dare a Hollywood icon’s mother rock the boat by expressing her opinion when it differs from theirs! Everyone knows that this is simply not allowed in Hollywood.
The tsunami that followed drowned Brad’s mother in obscenities and death-threat tweets such as these compiled on Twitchy.com:
“BRAD PITT’S MOM WROTE AN ANTI-GAY PRO-ROMNEY EDITORIAL. KILL THE B***H.”
“Brad Pitt’s mom, die”
“F*** you, Brad Pitt’s mom. The gay community made your kid a star, you whacko.”
So where is Brad Pitt? Why hasn’t he defended his mother? His mother, reportedly shell-shocked and frightened, has been intimidated into silence. Chalk up another win for liberal agenda 101 — tyrannize and intimidate, slander, and sequester any person with an opposing point of view into silence. Does tyranny ring a bell?
