Brad Pitt’s mom gets a history lesson

July 14, 2012

[J.P.’s Moment of Common Sense on Broad View, KBZZ 1270 AM and 96.1 FM in Reno. Listen to Broad View live Saturdays at 2:00 PM Pacific Time.]

Did anybody else lose respect for Brad Pitt this week?  His mother was attacked, threatened, and insulted in the vilest terms possible—I can’t even repeat the words here on the radio—and his response was to say and do nothing.

Apparently he was worried about offending the gay mafia that controls Hollywood.  Apparently he was more worried about his livelihood than his mother.

Jane Pitt’s offense, if you haven’t heard—the crime against humanity that earned her so much animosity—was to write a letter to her local newspaper in Springfield, Missouri.  She was responding to a previously-published letter which asserted that Christians should not vote for Mitt Romney because he’s Mormon.  Mrs. Pitt pointed out that Romney might be Mormon but he is highly moral and shares many Christian values.  Then she went on to say:
“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... and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.”
She’s right of course.  Obama is the most radical pro-abortionist ever to hold national office, way out of step even with the rest of the Democrat Party which, let’s face it, is pretty adamant about supporting abortion.  As a state legislator, Barack Obama openly fought for the killing of live babies who somehow survived abortions.  Not one single elected Democrat in Washington, D.C., other than him has ever voted for that radical position.  It’s a whacky position.  Macabre.  Remember Cruella de Vil from Walt Disney’s One Hundred and One Dalmatians?  Even she didn’t kill babies... she limited her evil to killing puppies.

In real life, I guess Cruella could run for president.

Jane Pitt was also right about the relevance of Jeremiah Wright’s church.  Yes, the church is affiliated with the United Church of Christ and yes, it has Christ in its name but it takes more than a name to be Christian.  The church Obama attended for 20 years was founded on and teaches a hate-filled doctrine called Black Liberation Theology which is based more on Marxism than the Bible and should be far less palatable to Christians than Mormonism.

Jane Pitt was also right about the president’s viewpoint on gay marriage, and it’s clear from the hate mail and threats that it’s this issue—the gay marriage issue—that inspired all the attacks.  Her attackers can’t be quibbling about her accuracy because she’s correct.  They can only be quibbling about her right to express an opinion.

Which is par for the course.  The left has never enjoyed hearing other people express their opinion.

This is where Jane Pitt went wrong: she didn’t realize that intimidation and violence have been the sine qua non for leftwing political philosophy since the beginning.  By writing a public letter, she enraged the sort of people who do not appreciate differences of opinion and will stop at nothing to suppress them.  She painted a target on her own back.  Communists and socialists do not want your opinion—when they want your opinion they’ll give it to you.  The left, unable to win a political debate using rational argument, always resorts to violence and intimidation.  History shows this time and time again.

Remember a little creep named Adolf Hitler?  He was the chancellor of Germany and the head of the National Socialist German Workers' Party, the leftwing political group otherwise known as the Nazis.  On June 30, 1934, he consolidated power in what is called the Night of the Long Knives.  For two straight days Hitler’s thugs carried out a series of murders to purge the nation of his opponents.  After that, Germany was a dictatorship.  Meanwhile, Stalin was doing the same thing in Russia, Mao did the same thing a few years later in China, and don’t ever forget the mass murders of Pol Pot’s communists in Cambodia.

The 20th century is nothing if not a lesson on leftwing violence.

Now we’re seeing the same sort of thing from Barack Obama as various union goons threaten and beat up the president’s political opponents all over the country.  Last year we saw threats on the life of Wisconsin’s Republican governor from teachers’ union members.  The worst thugs might be the goons from the Service Employees International Union, the SEIU.  Do you remember the SEIU thugs who beat up the black Tea Party member in St. Louis?  Since then the SEIU has been operating more like a gang than a union, showing up wherever the Democrat Party wants to threaten and intimidate people, often at Republican political events where they yell and scream as loud as the can trying to keep Republican speakers from being heard.

It’s scary, it’s disgusting, and it’s a damn shame that people don’t recognize the danger these thugs represent to our nation.

Some people get so many threats they’re blasé about them.  Last year, Hollywood comedian Christopher Titus, in an interview, said he wanted to lay in wait “on the grassy knoll” and shoot Sarah Palin.  I don’t think Mrs. Palin even bothered to respond.  She’s used to it.  Bill Maher called her the “c”-word-that-rhymes-with-punt and then even had the audacity to defend himself for doing it, and comedian Louie C.K. has directed language at Mrs. Palin which is so foul I throw up in my mouth a little bit every time I see his face.

That’s the left.  That’s what they do and they do it every single day.  Too bad Brad Pitt’s mom had to find out the hard way and too bad her son is unwilling to defend her right to voice an opinion.  Guess he can only play the hero in movies.

That’s... today’s dose of common sense.

J.P. replies: (Pretty sure this comment is spam but the name was so beautiful I let it pass.  I like the idea that someone named Daniela Anna Leoncini Vitali is reading my website in Milano... probably on her laptop at a cafe by a large plaza with pigeons striding up and down looking for handouts from the people walking by with loaves of bread under their arms while Ferraris drive past.)
