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.

Yes, if you believe Murder She Wrote, Matlock, Law & Order, NCIS, or any of a dozen other "crime" shows.
Rest in Peace Andrew Brightbart.
Matthew 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
Recently he said he had video of Obama speaking during his college years....outted SEIU....got up in the face of Obamaites.....now a 43 year old healthy man dies. It is not believable that he died of a rapidly cobbled statement of ‘natural causes’. He had many enemies....most of them associated with obama.
VERY GOOD POINT!
At CPAC he said in his speech that he has tapes of Obama from his college days, and that THIS election year O WILL be VETTED.
“Massive Coronary...It happens.
Remeber Tim Russert.
Andrew being such a good friend of Greg Gutfeld, look for a tribute either on “The Five” or “Red Eye”.
I can’t believe he is gone...
The 25 yo lieutenant I mentioned above died of a massive coronary and a 35 yo major I knew barely survived one. These were military members in very good shape.
So yes, it does happen, even to young people.
Thanks RummyChick, beautiful song and so fitting today. He was a true journalist, he wasn’t bought. It concerns me that he never revealed the information from his visit with Ayers.
You can take some moral high ground if you don't do the same thing under similar circumstances.
So, when Nancy passes...hold thy tongue and be gracious...unless you want to be like the same vile people over at the KOS.
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.
He is on local radio Tuesday in Indy. He gave a very detailed and entertaining account of the dinner with Bill and Bernadine.
It was informative and odd.
I believe I also read anacoounting on his website.
Andrew died of either a heart attack, stroke, or poisoning or who knows what else it could have been but it isn't natural at 42.
-——Ive known 2 people who have died from heart attacks between 40 and 50. Usually an inherited condition. Tragic.-——
A friend of mine had a heart attack at 47. No congenital condition. He was as fit as possible for his age. Thankfully, he survived.
We have lost one of our greatest conservative advocates. RIP, Andrew Breitbart.
I’m afraid that my first thoughts were conspitorial in nature. :(
When I lived in TX, my 37 year old neighbor dropped dead on his front lawn a week after he’d had a complete executive physical exam which he’d passed with flying colors.
One voice has fallen silent but a chorus will arise in his spirit.
Oh my goodness! I’m stunned by this news. RIP, Mr. Breitbart.
Those of us who knew him really well all knew that day was coming, though. I'd imagine people who were really close to Breitbart weren't as shocked as the rest of us are now.
I wonder if there is an investigation into his death would they place police tape around his office (courteosy of the justice dept) for a period of time until, say next November when it will be determined that there was no foul play. But until then...nothing leaves his office. I don’t know.
He has 4 children
Breitbart was adept at uncovering corruption on the left. What kind of person would celebrate his death?
There is such a thing as good and evil and I will celebrate when evil is diminished and grieve when it is strengthened.
Thanks. Nice to see reasonable reactions, from sometimes unreasonable folks.
RIP Andrew. A true conservative fighter for truth. You will be missed and have left a big hole in the conservative media seeking truth from government and Hollywood. Prayers for your family.
“many ways to induce one chemically”
That’s what I’m thinking but more along the lines of self-induced. The medical examiner’s report will get to the bottom of it.
Oh, this is a shock. Prayers for his family.
I can’t believe this!
OMG. Cannot believe this. Rest in Peace Andrew.
Just saw this on Fox. totally shocked I loved Andrew Breitbart. He was a Happy Warrior, funny as heck, fearless and innovative. He will be missed.
