Andrew Breitbart has died. He was 43 years old.
The cause of death has not been released and honestly it is none of our business. The fact he is gone is bad enough.
Andrew Breitbart was an unbelievable personality. He has been described as an author, publisher, and entrepreneur.
He could also be described as fearless and in some ways, the wild man of the conservative movement.
He was famous for being very willing to mix it up with liberals. In 2010, at the massive Tea Party Express rally in Searchlight Nevada, when union thugs threw eggs at the Tea Party Express bus and other cars, Breitbart went into the union crowd, refusing to back down and daring them to do something to him. Less than a month ago, he was at CPAC and when the Occupy protestors decided to act like the fools they are, Breitbart was the guy who went outside and confronted them.
I met him two years ago, when we did the National Tea Party convention. Breitbart was someone who early on recognized the value of the event, even more than we did. He reached out and helped in a number of ways. He never asked for anything in return.
There was a point where the convention almost failed. Some leftist groups were working hard to make the convention fail, thinking it would embarrass the movement.
At one of the most crucial moments, we reached out to him and he went above and beyond the call of duty to do something that saved the convention. Perhaps one day the entire story will be told but the bottom line is he did not have to but he did.
Not everyone agreed with him on a lot of issues. I certainly did not.
But today is not a day to talk about past differences and past fights.
Breitbart relished fighting those who would destroy this great country.
He loved this country, he loved what he was doing and he was an amazing patriot.
Rest in Peace.
We've lost one of our strongest fighters for truth and Liberty. May God keep him in his care.
I hope this isn't a repeat:
Andrew Breitbart - Media Warrior
by James O'Keefe
. . .Certainly, it would have taken an army to stop him and just as certainly it is going to take an army to replace him. But in my head I can hear the response come from Andrew: “What are *you* going to do about it now?” What we need are just a few good citizens with both courage and willpower. The courage to act with conscience and conviction, consequences and misconceptions be damned.
Such a sad loss to all patriots. My prayers to him and his family. His courage was inspiring.
I just picked this up on Patriot News Update.
Andrew, was making me worry when he was at CPAC, he seemed to be carring the world on his shoulders, and that is very stressfull, Obama has created the stress that we all are experiencing right now, and if he had some tapes on Obama that also is a very heavy load, and if he had heart trouble that's not going to be a good thing. So, I'm suprised it came so soon, but I was concerned for him.
Does anyone know about these tapes, and if they will be getting out? I think we need to carry this out for Andrew.
May his inspiration live on in each of us!
You are so right Barbara--We all must be "Breitbart" now!
He was KILLED...he was silenced..and as usual the American slaves will go about their business as usual! THIS COUNTRY IS IN TROUBLE AND WE SIT LIKE BUMPS ON LOGS!
As Mark Twain didn't say, I've never wished a man dead but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure. Breitbart was a horrible person and the world is so much better off without him. Good riddance.
Would you please back up your statement with some facts--if you are going to make such accusations, please give us examples of why he "was a horrible person".
Hope that when your time comes, no one will say "good riddance" to you!
A remarkably insensitive comment revealing your lack of common decency at the death of a fellow citizen.
Nancy and Cliff, Mr. or Ms. Abbott has a history on TPN of being incendiary and abusive for no reason. Plus, his or her incredibly rude and insensitive remark above, proves without a doubt that he or she is no conservative. So, we have to wonder what he or she is doing here, other than trolling.
