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.
This worthless bastard is a vile POS. I hope he suffers some great loss or calamity in his life so I can be the first to ridicule and mock this Commie Lib. This turd should crawl back into the sewer he came from.
What a douche bag!
He is purposely misrepresenting the Shirley Sherrod incident.
Actually I don’t want to be labeled as anti Frum, so... what an enema bag!
What a jerk!
F david frum. He doesn’t even deserve captial letters and isn’t fit to carry a water pail for the likes of Andrew.
Such class...shame it’s all low.
For those who don't speak liberal, this phrase means "we just make crap up and claim you said it."
For example, if you say "a giraffe has a long neck," that's racially coded for "black people should die."
Douchebags who play this game are the lowest dirt on the earth. That's my racially coded way of saying "douchebags who play this game are the lowest dirt on the earth."
I can hear Breitbart from here. F you!
Frum is a pandering whore to his leftist master overloads
Frum is a pseudocon — a liberal masquerading as a conservative. We can see right through him.
Dead Right, indeed!
See what you did....FRUM!!!
Pardon my French, but what an asshole Frum is. He couldn’t even wait for the body to get cold.
Ace aced it-—Breitbart is smiling from heaven, and Frum should be running for a dark corner in la-la land.
Andrew grew up with the Hollywood libs. One of the reasons he became a conservative was because of the stealth racism on the left.
Shrum. Frum. Whatever...
David Frum is one of the main reasons I dropped my subscriptions to National Review and the Weekly Standard.
The last paragraph in his article could be corrected briefly: Most of the anger and incivility in politics today can be attributed to a staunchly left-wing mainstream media and the administration of a Marxist, race-baiting president and his vitriolically partisan party.
And after this libel on a dead man, this fraud Frum will still try to fly under conservative colors.
No to Romney. No to McCain. No to dishonest `crunchy cons’ like Frum and no to `moderate’ Republicans like Dick Luger.
“Can we count on your support this fall?” GOP
Frum’s mother, Barbara, worked for government television (CBC) here in Canada. He’s always been a statist.
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.
Actually, I think that Frum demonstrates exactly what has become of the Republican Party. Let him and his gather together in their demise. The Republican Party has long ago lost the public. Time for a new party folks.
Ever since Frum left the Bush White House, he slowly but surely began moving further and further left. Eventually, most conservatives began to realize that Frum had become nothing more than a leftist, so they largely ignored what he had to say just as they ignore Michael Moore's rants. So Frum needs to run to his friends in MSM outlets to attack conservatives like Palin, Rush, Beck, etc.
Spitting on the corpse of Breitbart is just what anyone who has been paying attention to Frum's career path should have expected from him.
Although I appreciated Ace of Spades takedown, the best payback we can give Frum is to completely ignore him.
"It" was called "Pigford" because TIMOTHY PIGFORD filed the lawsuit (Pigford vs. Glickman) just as Roe v. Wade is called "Roe" all the time or Citizens United v. the FEC is called "Citizens United" or Kelo v. The City of New London is called "Kelo."
How can we hope to strive beyond this morass with scum like Frum seeding discontent and discord at any attempt of discourse. A pox on the tactless protuberance known as Frum.
Frum isn’t fit to shine Andrew’s shoes.
When the entire video was later finally obtained it showed that Shirley Sherrod was even more of a racist than the original clip indicated.
Frum has to know this.
Therefore, Frum is now a documented liar.
And sure, he's still a regular old scumbag, too.
Forum discredited nobody else nearly as much as himself in this episode.
I don't like to take anyone to task on the day of their death. If I encounter someone lying about their true worth, I may do a low burn reminder of truth, but you'll never see me lying about them.
Frum jumps the shark here.
Failing to recognize Barack Hussein Obama (mmm mmm mmm) as the primary race baiter in America—and attributing race baiting to the outspoken conservatives in our nation is evidence enough this former speech writer has lost his bearings.
Someone lock Frum up with that chain smoking has-been liberal Susan Estrich. They deserve each other.
Greta attacked him to on her blog.
Don't get your kickers in a wad over this Panty-waist. We have so many of our Conservative "voices" let us down, Krute, Kristol, Coutler, Noonan , Parker, etc. etc etc. I don't even listen to them anymore Ditto that Frum, they all suck, I can think for myself, the beltway punditry class is a circle of jerks.
Andrew (Rest in Peace, Guardian of Liberty) went off on his own and exposed people for what they were.
As Springsteen said; "and the poets down here don't write nothin' at all they just stand back and let it all be"
He just told the truth, spoke his mind, and thought for himself.
We are better off going that route than listening to Frum...
They been handing us our Divorce papers and we the dysfunctional have been hoping for reconciliation.
It is time for what I call 11.3.12, they day after we get our asses handed to us via Romney if we get stuck with that dog, The Party of Reagan.
