Skip to comments.Brad Pitt’s Mom Gets Death Threats for Blasting Obama on Abortion
Posted on 07/11/2012 7:05:24 AM PDT by LucianOfSamasota
Jane Pitt, the mother of actor Brad Pitt, faces death threats following her letter to the editor to a newspaper in which she blasts President Barack Obama for his lengthy pro-abortion record.
In the letter published by the Springfield News-Leader, Pitt calls President Obama, a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies. She adds, Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romneys opponent, Barack Hussein Obama.
Even though Pitt stands with the majority of Americans who are pro-life on abortion, new reports indicate she is facing an extreme backlash from pro-abortion activists. A WND story says Jane Pitt has been scared into silence by the hate-filled, vulgar and even violent reaction to her letter.
Pitt has even been the subject of death threats following her letter to the editor of Missouris Springfield News-Leader in which she asserted failure to vote for Republican presumptive presidential candidate Mitt Romney constituted a vote for Obama.
WND spoke briefly with Pitt and asked about the media assault against her for her comments as a private citizen supporting Romney. With inflections in her voice that conveyed fear and despair, she quietly and politely said she was not interested in talking to anyone in the media about the incident.

Pitt had every reason to be frightened. Following her letter to the editor in her local newspaper, the mainstream media have painted her comments in a vilifying light.
On Twitter, the backlash against Pitt has been especially fierce, with Twitter-poster Sandy Kownacka posting, Brad Pitts mom, die. And a tweet from I Bleed Gaga added, Brad Pitts mom wrote an anti-gay pro-Romney editorial. Kill the b-.
In January, Pitt said of his mother in a cover profile in The Hollywood Reporter, Shes very, very loving, very open, genuine, and its hilarious because she always gets painted in the tabloids as a she-devil. Theres not an ounce of malice in her. She wants everyone to be happy.
As one of President Obamas most outspoken backers in Hollywood, actor Brad Pitt does not share his mothers views. Pitt reaffirmed his support for President Obama earlier this year saying, Im an Obama supporter, no question.
It is unfortunate that both Brad Pitt and his fiancée actress Angelina Jolie are not pro-life on abortion. The couple has six children, a large family especially by Hollywood standards. Three of the Jolie-Pitt children are biological while three were adopted. Both Pitt and Jolie have been adoption advocates for years, even in the face of criticism in Hollywood.
I had a friend who had a big family when I was a kid. I just loved the chaos around the breakfast table and the fighting and the ribbing, and the mom making pancakes for everyone or the dad making pancakes, Pitt told the Associated Press in an interview at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011.
Jane Pitts letter underscores the importance of every pro-life advocate taking action in the 2012 elections. After last weeks Supreme Court decision upholding the pro-abortion Obama healthcare law, this cant be stated enough.
Hey Brad... how do you like your marxist friends now? They are so kind... so understanding... so... anti American.
Where is his defense of his mother? Has he come out and defended her against these attacks? I haven’t seen where he has and I’d think he would, especially since it’s against his mother.
” - - - the mainstream media have painted her comments in a vilifying light.”
The Liberal Agenda Media (LAM) is showing its fangs.
Hmmmmm, - - - - - ? Maybe the topic of abortion is high on the LAM hot-button list?
BTW, there is NOTHING “mainstream” about our sorry media.
You’d think Brad Pitt fans would be glad his mother was anti-abortion. Do they wish she’d aborted him?
Hate crime against straights.
Abortion is the High Sacrament of the Liberal Religion. It is their sacrifice to Molech, and nothing will stand in their way to the altar..............
These are the same tools that Mao motivated to carry out the Cultural Revolution in China, which was nothing but another purge of the educated and professional civilians.
A good book to read is Nena Cheng’s “Life and Death in Shanghai”. Put this in the context of Obama remaining in power beyond Jan 2013 and you’ll never look at your neighbor the same way again.
Both have an equal right to their views and may express themselves openly and without fear of censure.
THAT is the ‘ideal’ situation, and BTW- the envy of every oppressed people on earth... however, Liberals have been attempting to dismantle this very fair and workable plan for as long as anyone can remember.
In Support of Life!
He is a coward.
Yes... the communists vowed from the beginning to kill us off. I will not go so easily... Brad... he will surrender in the first wave.
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)?
Yeah, these Hollywood types like to rail against corporations - profits before people.
But when they are put in a position to choose sides, they remain silent or side with the leftists so that they may not damage THEIR earning potential.
I give kudos to his brother who at least spoke up in defense of his mother's right to free speech and opinion. If silencing conservative opinions is okay for democrat liberals. it IS indicative free speech is in grave danger.
Yes... they are a disgusting lot.
Black shirt tatics of political suppression. Wonder if they will work or piss Americans off. We have raised kids under the suppression of the Left’s political correctness and thought punishment.
If Brad were going to defend her... he would have... it is now too late.
Everyone that I know and meet is pissed off.
The woman simply expressed her opinion...it was the furthest thing from hate speech (frankly it’s not all that controversial either) if you don’t agree with her...fine. You can write a counter editiorial...you’re free to do so in this country.
But death threats? stay classy liberals.
