As we are well aware, Brad Pitt’s mother, a “Christian” wrote and op-ed piece for her local newspaper in favor of Romney and slamming gays. No word for Brad himself yet on the anti-gay rant but his brother Doug Pitt was on the Today Show to promote his new commercial for Virgin Mobile, when Matt Lauer asked him about:
“Moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world, so why would our family be any different,” Pitt said. “There can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you and I think there should be. 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. If anything, it solidifies your point or maybe you learn something.” Watch the video below.
You know what? Um, no. First off i am not ripping him. I mean, what could he say, its his mother. However i am tired of people disguising bigotry and discrimination with the catch phrase “there can be a HEALTHY discussion”. There is no healthy form of bigotry. Period. That phrase stopped working after the first 5 minutes. The phrase is only intended to water down, dilute and make it seam that both sides have a valid point. When in truth, what Jane Pitt wrote is not valid and is pure discrimination and bigotry. Not to mention ignorance, however i won’t go into the lovely name calling i sure have a flair for
bottom line: Bury the phrase “healthy discussion” because quite frankly it is a pc mask used by bigots to justify their hate.
