Goodbye Andrew Breitbart your inspiration will live on.
Island Turtle ^ | March 1, 2012 | Corky Boyd

Few conservatives have made such a profound impression on so many in such a short time as Andrew Breitbart, who died this morning at 43. A lifelong liberal from Los Angeles, he eventually saw through the utter deceit of the liberal establishment and became a conservative. Unlike ordinary human beings whose lives are spent like long burning votive candles, Andy’s was the blast of a Saturn rocket – short but powerful. He left this world in a blaze of glory, but far too soon.

His central theme, above all, was exposing the unmitigated corruption of the legacy media. They parroted false and exaggerated stories in unison to gain impact, the “big lie” technique. And they withheld, in concert, news that damaged liberal causes. In one of his most shining moments, the takedown of ACORN in September 2009, Andy with the help of two youthful photojournalists smoked out the corrupt media. In his Washington Times article, shortly after the sting, Mr. Breitbart explains the trap he set.

"Everything you needed to know about the unorthodox roll out of the now-notorious ACORN sting videos was hidden in plain sight in my Sept. 7 column, 'Katie Couric, Look in the Mirror.'"

"ACORN was not the only target of those videos; so were Katie, Brian, Charlie and every other mainstream media pooh-bah. They were not going to report this blockbuster unless they were forced to. And they were. What's more, it ain't over yet. Not every hint I dropped in that piece about what was to come has played itself out yet. Stay tuned."...

Shocking. He looked so healthy earlier this month when he promised to show us video from Obama’s college days and to really vet him during this election.

Here’s a coincidence for you—

One of the cold case posse threads said that Breitbart had interviewed Sheriff Arpaio the night he died, about the Obama’s forged documents.

In the midst of rejoicing, Big Media and the Hussein Heads will continue to remind us that this death was most definitely a result of natural causes, because that was how it was IMMEDIATELY reported.

Check out another “natural causes” death:

I am shocked at how upset his passing has made me. I never realized how much he meant to me or how much hope I had placed in him.I have never met him but I have cried over his passing and it hurts.

I will miss him very, very much. He was much too young, much. Rest in peace, Breitbart...

It will live on indeed. Especially when the “Obummer College” stuff is released. Andrew will be laughing in Heaven as these tapes are released and Obummer is “finally vetted”.

First thought upon hearing the news....: This stinks on ice!

I will never buy the "natural causes" explanation.

Me too, Irenic. I feel like I have lost a close family member. He’s one of our band of brothers.

“I will never buy the “natural causes” explanation.”

I was flattered and encouraged when one alleged freeper talked down hard to me today for my merely mentioning that the November 2001 plane crash in NYC was immediately judged to be an accident.

The Hussein Heads here are going to be all over this story just like they feel COMPELLED to defend Hussein’s fraudulent birth certificate.

I'm sure the various agencies - CIA, etc. have methods that make a death appear to be from "natural" causes, and Hussein has demonstrated that NOTHING is beyond the realm of what he will resort to.

Sadly, we lose great men like Andrew Breitbart at a young age... meanwhile, an evil, soulless heathen like George Soros will probably live well into his 90s.

I`m not buying it either. He was a high-value target of the left. Somewhere, a marxist Kenyan is breathing one giant sigh of relief.

Something does not ring right with this case. Déjà Vu?

Breitbart never stopped in his courageous oppression of the weak, helpless, and the blind.

Condolences to his family, and what a great loss for the cause of liberty.

Is anyone surprised that liberals are dancing and partying at the news?

I feel the same way - his passing has really hit me hard as well. I really respected his work and how fearless he was in telling the truth that the media wouldn’t report.

It is unfortunate that he was taken so young...RIP Andrew Breitbart and prayers up for the family you left behind.
