Skip to comments.David Frum Attacks Breitbart On The Day Of His Death As Racist…
Posted on 03/01/2012 9:15:40 PM PST by Qbert
I wish I could offer up a better retort to this pathetic sh**bag ( Ace does it better than I ever could) but all I have to offer is this piss off and die.
Via Daily Beat/David Frum:
Of the dead, speak nothing but what is good.
Its an ancient rule and a wise one, but one that does not do justice to the life and career of Andrew Breitbart, dead today aged 43.
It is impossible to speak nothing of a man who traced such a spectacular course through the contemporary media.
But to speak only good of Andrew Breitbart would be to miss the story and indeed to misunderstand the man.
Because President Obama was black, and because Breitbart believed in using every and any weapon at hand, Breitbarts politics did inevitably become racially coded. Breitbarts memory will always be linked to his defamation of Shirley Sherrod and his attempt to make a national scandal out of back payments to black farmers: the story he always called Pigford with self-conscious resonance. [...]
And this is where it becomes difficult to honor the Roman injunction to speak no ill of the dead. Its difficult for me to assess Breitbarts impact upon American media and American politics as anything other than poisonous. When one of the leading media figures of the day achieves his success by his giddy disdain for truth and fairness when one of our leading political figures offers to his admirers a politics inflamed by rage and devoid of ideas how to withhold a profoundly negative judgment on his life and career?
Especially when that career was so representative of his times?
We live in a time of political and media demagoguery unparalleled since the 19th century. Many of our most important public figures have gained their influence and power by inciting and exploiting the ugliest of passions by manipulating fears and prejudices by serving up falsehoods as reported truth. In time these figures will one by one die. What are we to say of this cohort, this group, this generation? That their mothers loved them? That their families are bereaved? That their fans admired them and their employees treated generously by them? Public figures are inescapably judged by their public actions. When those public actions are poisonous, the obituary cannot be pleasant reading.
I know Frum worked in the Bush administration and for the Giuliani campaign but will the MSM please, for the love of God, stop calling him a conservative.
Usually Im not the kind of person that wishes another person ill will, but in this case, after reading this garbage, David Frum..DROP DEAD..I hope karma gets that bastard for writing this disgusting filth
Stunned by the comments from the “civilized” left.
But I guess I shouldn’t be. Look what they said about Tony Snow. :(:(:(:(:(
Time for true conservatives to wake up and identify the fifth columnists in our midst. Frum is one of them. I trust no magazine, periodical, news outlet, or newsletter or newspaper that has so much as even a pretense to conservatism, will ever again allow this piece of scum to opine on their publications or news programs. Go away Frum.
Frum is evidently sick...its obvious
He’s getting to be even more vile than your average hateful OWS leftist- if that’s possible.
Frum is a sanctimonious egghead jerk.
David Frum has been irrelevant for so long I began to believe he was dead! Good grief! He cannot let us grieve, but has to pile on before Andrew is in the grave!
Frum is lower than beetle dung.
“One of the reasons he became a conservative was because of the stealth racism on the left.”
Hollywood’s disdain for whites, (more exactly white Christians), has been front and center for at least the last 40 years, in my opinion.
I like this retort from the "Ace of Spades" blog:
I can't say anything better, myself.
Reading what these so-called “Compassionate leftists” think of all of us makes me sick. Mark Levin said it best today on his show, the left hates us, they wish us ALL dead, why, because we refuse to do what they say, we refuse to kiss their agenda’s ass. That is why they hate us. They are only “Compassionate” to those who they think they can use. Andrew refused to be used, he stood right up there and said what we all feel, and the left just can’t stand it. They can’t stand the fact that we are showing them for EXACTLY what they are. Usually cockroaches come out at night, seems recently these roaches come out during the day too
Frum is one of the worst human beings that ever lived.
lol. That is likely more accurate than we know
That’s an insult to beetle dung
Frum can go —ck himself, Andrew never had a racist bone in his body and I remember clearly the day he personal asked me to be a contributor as he was starting the Big Websites because wanted to give more voice to Black Conservatives.
Har! I think Andrew would approve.
Frum is the reason Caylee Anthony was killed.
