Jon Voight defends Brad Pitt’s mom after she gets death threats for penning anti-Obama letter

LOS ANGELES – You can always count on family.

Last week, Brad Pitt’s mother Jane Pitt hit headlines after penning a response letter-to-the-editor of her local newspaper, Missouri’s Springfield News Leader, in which she advocated support for Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, referring to him as a “a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality.”

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

"Good for her"

- John Voight

However, it seems the backlash surrounding Jane’s opinion has become so vehement that she has reportedly been “scared into silence.”

According to WND, Mrs. Pitt has not only been the victim of vulgar and hate-filled attacks, but she has also received death threats which have left her very frightened.

“So apparently Brad Pitt’s mom is a c***,” tweeted one, while another wrote that “Brad Pitt’s genetics have been brought into question.”

Some media outlets too had their way with her words as well, complete with headlines and references stating that she is “homophobic” and “hates Obama and gay people.”

But Mrs. Pitt has at least one high-profile supporter on her daughter-in-law's side of the family: Jolie's dad Jon Voight!

“Good for her,” Voight told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column, adding that he agrees with the points-of-view expressed by Jane.

What happened to his daughter?

Well, she's clearly mentally ill. That said, I think she actually leans libertarian. It's her husband that's the complete tool.

I don’t think Angelina Jolie really cares about politics. She’s a liberal because it’s acceptable and lauded to be a rich liberal in Hollywood. I doubt she cares at all about who is President, etc.

The one common denominator about the queers is that they are all miserable and they project it. They are miserable because they know that what they are doing is wrong, and by projecting their misery on everyone else, they get a false and fleeting psychological benefit. If they can’t feel good about themselves, they can at least take solace in making everyone else as miserable as they are.

Speak out against them and they vent their misery on you double. If there is one thing they can’t stand more than being miserable about being gay, it’s being reminded of it.

Is Brad Pitt man enough to defend his mother, or is he going to leave it up to Angelina’s daddy. Obama’s boys are real killers.

It is very easy. She was indoctrinated before John had his awakening moment on 911.

Brad has revealed himself as a giant pussy who won’t even defend his own mother. I knew he was leftist scum back when he and his then girlfriend Jennifer Anniston bragged about being rude to Jenna Bush. I didn’t know he was a total coward who would let his commie pals attack his mother.

Who do you think decides who gets the plum movie roles in Hollywood?

Exactly!

From what I’ve gleaned from the articles, Brad has a brother who is a businessman.
Hopefully he will come to the aid of his mama

I’m glad Jon Voight is still one of us.
I’m glad he’s a real man.
They’re becoming extinct lately.

Pretty fraked when your own son won’t defend you against death threats regardless of his political leanings/affiliations. =.=

I’m trying very hard to recall the death threats made by Republicans toward anyone who smeared George W. Bush, but just can’t seem to come up with a single example.

Can someone here help me out with this?

Anonymous death threats mean very little to CCW holders.

Remember that when considering liberal’s advocacy for gun control.

Message to Brad Pitt: buy your mom a Mossberg 500. Show her gun safety, how to field strip the weapon, and clean it. Take her to the sporting clay range to practice with some #8s. Buy her a case of 00 buck.

Brad, you will feel better about her safety, trust me.

who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality

Um, only when it is expedient; so not really.

Perhaps there are, but then you don’t get to marry the person.

Angelina Jolie is on record as being “agin” Obummer...calls him all smoke and mirrors. She’s smarter that way than Brad Pitt, who adores Obummer, like his goofy sidekick, Geo. Clooney.
