IDIOT: Death Penalty for BP Execs? Brad Pitt’s Staggering Hypocrisy


"I was never for the death penalty before -- I am willing to look at it again."

-Actor Brad Pitt, speaking about what he would like to do to BP executives if he had his way.

Ah, the sharp observations of Hollywood actors. Aren’t you glad that we live in an age where they’re given a stage and a megaphone anytime they want to espouse their political opinion? Once upon a time, one would have had to visit with preschoolers to meet somebody of Brad Pitt’s intellectual stature.

To clarify; Brad Pitt has never considered capital punishment for murderers, rapists, or even serial killing scum like Tookie Williams. Instead, he reserves such measures for evil executives who make slightly more money than he does. No word yet on whether Pitt would hold the Obama administration to the same standard, considering that they share an equal part in the blame.

One would hope that Mr. Pitt was simply making a joke, but that’s likely not the case, for several reasons: a) He’s never been funny and b) He has a long and varied history of using his public platform to push his political agenda and sermonize to us lowly middle-American peasants.

I must say that I do find it hard to take a lesson in morality from a man who has smugly bragged about “rolling the most perfect joints” in Hollywood and famously abandoned his wife after conducting a very public, adulterous affair. We all have a “Brad Pitt” in our neighborhood. We just generally refer to him as “the man-whore down the block” or “the idiot hipster who smells like an arm pit.” READ MORE...
