“Be Breitbart, Baby”
HillBuzz ^ | March 2, 2012 | Kevin DuJuan

Posted on 03/02/2012 8:20:11 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

I spent a good portion of today monitoring the positively horrible postings on various Leftist sites and on the Facebook accounts of proud adherents of “The Tolerant Left” — observing the absolute glee they’re taking in Andrew Breitbart’s sudden death yesterday.

If you’re a regular reader here, you’ll know I trot out “the Death Star obliterating Alderaan” analogy quite frequently — because the scene resonates with me in especially trying times, as it’s one of the earliest memories I have of seeing something up on a movie screen (having most likely seen it for the first time during one of the pre-VHS re-releases of Star Wars). The Tolerant Left today is behaving much the way I imagine those in the high echelons of the Galactic Empire behaved upon hearing news of the first successful firing of the Death Star and the obliteration of Senator Leia Organa’s home world. “Ha ha! Take that! That’ll teach her!” is an echo of the jubilation in Leftist ranks today with the loss of the great General of the American Resistance who was Andrew Breitbart — himself a 21st Century echo of a Thomas Payne/Paul Revere/George Thomas hybrid.

If you’re a Star Wars fan, you know well that anyone in the Empire who celebrated the destruction of Alderaan (and the deaths of billions of its inhabitants) was an absolute fool (on top of being a sick and pathetic degenerate who celebrates the death of ANYONE) because the loss of Alderaan galvanized a galaxy and sent millions of talented, creative, and impassioned people into the ranks of the rebellion. “For Alderaan” was their mission statement and clarion call.

Today I sent an email out to my personal list of friends asking them to step up their efforts in whatever way they could to help fill the incalculable void left by Andrew Breitbart’s death. One of my good friends, HB contributor “The Tamminator”, responded by telling me her new personal mission statement in life is to “Be Breitbart, Baby!”. She says she already used it in a conversation she had this afternoon with another conservative activist — and at the close of their talk, he told her to “Be Breitbart!” and she said “Be Breitbart!” back to him instead of “goodbye”.

In whatever way you can, please “Be Breitbart” a little every day from now on.

If you didn’t consider yourself a part of the American Resistance already, please induct yourself with a pledge of “Being Breitbart” too.

Andrew Breitbart was an important part of the Resistance whose unique gifts were crucial to our cause…but I know in my heart there is someone reading this right now whose talents could possibly be even greater — but you just have never put your talent out there.

Maybe you didn’t think you were good enough…or strong enough…or brave enough.

Maybe you were afraid of what the Tolerant Left would do to you or your family if you got involved.

Maybe you sat back because Andrew Breitbart was already out there doing the heavy lifting.

With him gone, it’s time for you to be Breitbart, baby.

I am beyond heartbroken this remarkable man is dead. There are no words to describe how sickened I am that the Tolerant Left has seized his death as a cause for perverse rapture. All I can think to do in response to any of this is to “be Breitbart, baby”.

A little every day.

Then a little more until I get the handle of it.

I’ll never be as in-your-face as he was…or as salty and aggressive…since that’s not my personal style. But I’m going to start challenging myself to do more with video and social networking than I’ve ever done before. My friend Megan Fox and I talked today and we’re going to start our radio show back up, despite the cost to keep it going, because it’s a way for us to “be Breitbart” on the air now that his voice is silenced. “The Tamminator” and I decided to launch a very special project of our own, committing to something we’d talked about many times but never decided to put into action until now…and it’s something Andrew Breitbart would have gotten to himself eventually if he’d lived a little longer.

Whether they realize it or not, I see a lot of other people in the conservative writing world picking up on the spirit of “Be Breitbart, Baby”. I hope above everything else that the verb “to Breitbart” comes into regular usage and it stands for “absolutely bedeviling the Tolerant Left, exposing their hypocrisy, and collapsing the Cocktail Party GOP establishment while driving the Elite Media insane”.

Be Breitbart, Baby!

B3 for short.

In whatever way you can.

2DV — You betcha! I’ve been wrestling with ways to step up operations as well. Watching Andrew on Utube — fearless & committed & a patriot — truth will be heard throughout 2012 and beyond. God give us strength and protect us from the snare of the fowler. Run through the tape for Andrew! Thanks for posting, 2DV. — ryn

“I hope above everything else that the verb “to Breitbart” comes into regular usage and it stands for “absolutely bedeviling the Tolerant Left, exposing their hypocrisy, and collapsing the Cocktail Party GOP establishment while driving the Elite Media insane”.”

Sounds good to me.

I guess I was inadvertently Breitbart for several hours today. I spent time confronting knuckleheads on The Chicago Tribune over Rush, Georgetown and the Constitutional aspect of it all.

Rest in peace, dear man.

Thanks for posting this. I've added it to @my thread.
I only wish I had read it before I made my post as I would have added it.
There are just so many touching tributes to go through.

Palin called us to do this too, if not when she announced that she was not seeking the Presidency, then shortly before. Perhaps during her Iowa speech?

Cheers!

Andrew Breitbart wasn’t afraid to think outside of the box as way too many Conservatives are. He didn’t believe that things must go on as they always have. He made new paths. Let’s forge out and make our own new paths before The LORD with whom there is vision, strength and ability to do the things that must be done in completely new and creative ways. Let’s all ask Him to take off our blinders and see the possibilities!
