In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)
Breibart.com ^ | 3/1/12 | Larry Solov

Posted on 03/01/2012 6:00:33 AM PST by ImJustAnotherOkie

Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.

We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.

Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.

Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:

I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.

Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

RIP Andrew, he was a great fighter for the right, especially during Obama’s presidency.

-——I would put nothing beyond Obama’s army of acolytes and lunatics-——

Nothing is beyond the pale for a Marxist, particularly one who supports infanticide.

This is what concerns me regarding the SCOTUS decision regarding Obamacare. There will be blackmail.

Happened around midnight

Even allowing for time difference, it took (at minimum) over six hours for the news to hit the net ?

If true, it's surely tragic, but I'm still skeptical.

Not aimed at you Girlene, just thinkin' aloud .. <Al cap>

Are there ways to induce a massive heart attack on someone so that it does not show up in an autopsy? I think hussein and his thugs have their untraceable fingerprints all over this one.

I scan his website first thing every morning.

This is so tragic.

I guess I got FR Scoop of the year. That’s what I like about FR. FR is the best dissimulator of information in the Free World.

Local radio station stated it was a massive heart attack (just minutes ago).

God’s speed Mr. Breitbart!
You will be missed.

Our prayers go up to his family, friends and co-workers.

(I can’t wait to hear what the MSM has to say about this.)

I am NOT believing this for a minute (the ‘natural causes’ part)

Indeed, very hard to swallow for such an active young man. And 43 is considered very young these days. Just hard to believe.

It’s rare, but it can happen. There is also the possibility of pulmonary embolism.

I am stunned. What a loss. :(((

Hang on...Slow down. That is not a statement from his wife. It is allegedly from Larry Solov.

At this point it is the ONLY statement anywhere on the web that Andrew is dead.

Well...he was 12 days older than me. We both just turned 43.

I see a lot of people on here saying there is nothing "natural" about it...but I lost a real good friend of mine back in 2006 to a heart attack. He was 42. It was one of those 1 am phone calls you never want to get. By the time we got to the hospital...he was gone.

It happens.

Very suspisious.There are so many untraceable bio toxins which can cause such a heart attack. The timing is just too convenient for the one. I have a hard time ruling out foul play.We do have a fascist in the WH.Believe it.

I hope Andrew had duplicates of the O tapes made , and that they are safely preparing to have them released.I wonder if Andrew knew his life might be tenuous.Reminds me of the Quarles Harris case, a very convenient murder of a witness to hearings on the Dept. State Obama passport files.

We Have lost a friend and warrior for our cause.

I am in shock over this.

He was the one who exposed ACORN, and other abuses of the current regime.

Somehow, I don’t think it was “natural”. just my humble opinion.

“What’s natural about dieing at 43?”

It does happen, sometimes to much younger people. A very good friend of mine died suddenly when he was 24, killed by a cerebral hemorrhage.

We have lost one of the few bold and courageous voices for conservatism. Andrew had the guts to tell off the MSM.

Who will take up the mantle now?

I did listen to him on Tuesday...it was very odd. He was very upset about Anonymous type hackers who were going after friends/sources for his stories. These hackers had been able to somehow hack into their phones and call 911 claiming some disaster was happening in that person’s house...ending up with SWAT teams showing up. He was almost hyperventilating about how dangerous these hackers had become to just regular people. whose only “crime” was being associated with him (Breitbart)

Announcer has mentioned a couple of times this morning that Breitbart was really upset about the death of Davy Jones (who knew he liked him?!)......how odd that they both passed so closely together.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Obama minions offed him somehow, the Chicago way and all........That was the first thing that came to my mind, they killed him as retribution for the ACORN videos...........

Saw him during CPAC and he had me standing up cheering. I felt like I knew him personally. We had a similar journey to the conservative side.

Tears are streaming for his family and friends.

What a loss.

Why would you have to take my comment out of context? Breitbart is “irreplaceable” today in the conservative political realm. There is no one out there with his skill set who can expose the left as he did.

If you read the thread last night about James O’Keefe suing Obermann, Shuster and Al Gore’s tv station, he states that few are willing to expose themselves to the smears O’Keefe and Breitbart have suffered at the hands of the left. There are NOT a lot of ‘good men’ ready to take action. Let’s not kid ourselves.

Prime age for a male to die like this.

I’m so sad. He is irreplacable.

My younger brother died same way, same age, playing on the floor with his 3 little girls. The shock of it never goes away.

I am stunned. I hope they rule out “other” suspicious causes.
