Posted on 07/11/2012 3:59:34 AM PDT by Kaslin
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!"
You want ugly? When word of Mrs. Pitt's letter spread on social media late last week, Twitter lit up with a stream of death threats, smears and slurs. My Twitter curation site, Twitchy.com, compiled just some of the vile bile aimed at Mrs. Pitt for supporting traditional values and standing up for the unborn:
"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."
"Brad Pitt's mother...what a brainless old b***h..."
"Brad Pitt's Mom Slams Obama, Gays. That stand makes her a deluded, dumba** Fascist Repuke"
"I hope Brad Pitt has been supporting his mother and decides to cut her off. What a b***h."
"Brad Pitt's mom can choke on a (redacted)."
The usual civility police were in their usual place when the No H8 bullies mauled Mrs. Pitt: nowhere to be found. Brad Pitt also has been silent so far. His brother, Doug, did try, if a bit too meekly, to defend his mom on Monday in an interview with NBC's "Today" show:
"You know, I think moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world. So why would our family be any different?" he said. "There can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you. The bad thing is when it turns to venom and negativity, and we don't have that in our family. It's open discussion. We can learn from each other, and if anything, it solidifies your point. Or maybe you learn something."
Learn something from us "deluded, dumba** Fascist Repukes"? Heaven forfend. The overwhelming majority of Hollywood libs live in a fantasyland bubble where every Obama critic is a racist, every pro-life activist is a terrorist and every defender of traditional marriage is a Neanderthal. Hold a mirror up to their hatred, and they'll call it an incitement to hatred.
Ironically, the iconic "No H8" campaign logo features celebrities with their mouths taped shut with duct tape to symbolize how they've purportedly been silenced. It's classic psychological projection from the practitioners of repressive tolerance.
“We can learn from each other, and if anything, it solidifies your point. Or maybe you learn something.”
Well I hate to tell you Doug... if you don’t know anything it’s hard to learn SOMETHING ELSE!!
Liberals can hardly be said to know ANYTHING. What they DO profess to know is the result of information so disgracefully mutilated, facts so selectively deficient and ideas so dated, intellectually dishonest and unworkable that they are paralyzed in a sort of predictable and monotonous inertia.
When has ANY Liberal sounded different than any other Liberal for the past 40 years?
Has the President called Mrs. Pitt to see if she is ok?
I love Michelle. She doesn’t mind pointing out the obvious.
IMO - Conservatives need to stop being afraid of being labeld “anti-gay” (why isn’t it ok to be antigay?) or “homophobic” - they are just words drummed up by the the liberals/homosexuals to silence us. Same way libs/progressives silence conservatives when they don’t agree with policy. Plus, the government has created this situation by declaring “diversity” day or “tolerance” day, etc.
“Liberals can hardly be said to know ANYTHING. What they DO profess to know is the result of information so disgracefully mutilated, facts so selectively deficient and ideas so dated, intellectually dishonest and unworkable that they are paralyzed in a sort of predictable and monotonous inertia.”

Keep it up!
When you can defend your positions with logic, facts and centuries of clearly demonstrated proof, you have no need to lower or debase yourself and your arguments with hateful personal assaults.
When logic, facts and experience all militate so forcefully against your most fervently held beliefs, you have nothing left with which to argue your position but the same hatred wherewith your position(s) originated in the first place.
This is the plight of the modern Liberal Progressive, LGBT, NAACP, Planned Parenthood, ACLU (pick any onethe list is as long as it is fetid) sociopath. Remove their irrational hatred, and there is nothing left there but a directionless, pointless lobotomized shell.
Hollywood clowns are the worst loudmouth bullies on earth.
They are even more disgusting NOW that they have the support of an equally unprincipled and idiotic BULLY of their very own in the WH.
In their most frightful pharmaceutical nightmares, Hollywood jerks can hardly regard themselves as a class of victimized ‘artists’!
For donkeys years they have been THE textbook faction of spoiled, overpaid, know-nothing, do-nothing and gratuitously wholesale anti-American creeps alive. NO ONE has EVER challenged these former parking lot valets and manicurists to corroborate their infantile drivel!!
Where do they get off styling themselves as the champions of working America and calling THEMSELVES victimized for their effort (or whatever you call recklessly shooting off your mouth about all and sundry)?
There was nothing hateful in Mrs. Pitt’s letter...quite the opposite. As usual, all the hate comes from the left. When will the populace wake up to that fact?
Go Michelle Malkin! Go Jane Pitt! Brad Pitt is a total wimp. He’s not a tough guy, he just plays one on TV and Movies.
