Skip to comments.In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)

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, andfamouslyI 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. Ive lost friends, perhaps dozens. But Ive gained hundreds, thousandswho knows?of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

Very sad news. Sending prayers to his loved ones. RIP Andrew.
The natural causes part is the big giveaway that this is fake.
I don’t know why you are saying it is fake. It is all over Fox News and other organizations. Perhaps you should do a search before saying such things. RIP Andrew. He is my age which is scary.
Natural causes is normally associated with old age. This was poorly announced.
“It concerns me that he never revealed the information from his visit with Ayers.”
He wouldn’t leave this info hanging. Somebody has it. Somebody HAS to have it.
As soon as the dust settles it will all come out.
Took a walk on the wild side over at DU...and I’m relieved to see that the vaaast majority of posts are empathetic and gracious. There will always be a few on any public arena but by and large, I observed very civil remarks.
He gave everthing he had for liberty. His voice will be sorely missed.
I’m hoping that rumors of Andrew’s death are greatly exaggerated.
RIP, Andrew. We will take up the banner now.
$100 says this is another interweb hoax
I suggest that you make that 100 dollar donation to Free Republic. Unfortunately you lost the best.
When he had dinner with Satan’s minions I knew his days were numbered. Sad but true.
Anyone challenging Satan in this end game have to watch their back every step of the way.
RIP Andrew. Prayers to his family.
I wouldn’t put assasination out of the realm of this tragedy. He was hated by the left, and feared by the Obama administration/supporters. He was on the verge of “VETTING” the Zero with video.
RIP you courageous patriot.
I’ve known 2 people who have died from heart attacks between 40 and 50. Usually an inherited condition. Tragic.
RIP Andrew. Your significance was just beginning.
To be fair, when cuban made that comment there was no other confirmation by Drudge or Fox. The only place it was being reported at the time was his website (which some thought could have been hacked).
He leaves behind a wife and 4 children.
Prayers up for his wife, children, friends, and family.
This is devastating. He will be so missed.
There’s champagne in the White Hut today!
RIP, good soul. RIP.
This is a huge loss for conservatives everywhere. This is a man who took the fight to the liberals instead of taking it with a smile like so many champions of the conservative cause.
Greg Gutfeld on Fox News all choked up over his close friend’s death. Years ago I had a friend who died of a sudden heart attack at 29. Prayers for his wife and 4 children as they try to cope with their devastating loss.
