Why So Much Hate?
The “tyrants of tolerance” are at it again. This time the radicals are focusing their hatred on Jane Pitt, mother of mega-star Brad Pitt. What was Mrs. Pitt’s sin? She dared to express her support for Mitt Romney. Worse, she defended the sanctity of life and traditional marriage.
It all began when Mrs. Pitt wrote a brief letter to the editor of her local newspaper in response to a previous editorial suggesting that Christians should not vote for a Mormon candidate. Mrs. Pitt pointed out the obvious: If you care about traditional values, you should vote for the candidate who shares those values, even if that candidate may not share your faith.
But here’s the part of her letter that made the left go nuts:
“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.”
In one sentence, Mrs. Pitt provided four simple facts that expose just how extreme Barack Obama is, and put in stark contrast the choice facing values voters this November. Any Christian who wants to stop Obama’s assault on our values, any American who wants to stop Obama’s socialism and repeal ObamaCare, has just one option: Vote for Mitt Romney!
Unfortunately, being who she is, the left-wing media eagerly distorted Mrs. Pitt’s editorial with headlines like this one: “Brad Pitt’s Mom Unleashes Anti-Gay, Anti-Obama Fury In Letter.” In the days since, WorldNetDaily reports that she has been deluged with hateful emails, Twitter messages and even death threats. But none of that will ever be reported by the “mainstream media.”
The left pretends to champion tolerance and insists we tolerate its every demand. But it is increasingly intolerant of conservative values, and even free speech. The “tyrants of tolerance” have an extremely totalitarian impulse and routinely seek to intimidate and silence their opposition.
