The Vetting, Part I: Barack's Love Song To Alinsky
Breitbart.com ^ | 3/4/2012 | Andrew Breitbart

Posted on 03/04/2012 7:17:45 PM PST by txroadkill

Prior to his passing, Andrew Breitbart said that the mission of the Breitbart empire was to exemplify the free and fearless press that our Constitution protects--but which, increasingly, the mainstream media denies us.

The site is getting slammed. I keep getting error messages, but I saw a glimpse of it... glad to see it’s finally launched and hope they can get their server situation worked out!

Very interesting article. I wonder if there is video of 0bama on that discussion panel.

I have it up in another tab. There is supposed to be a picture of the poster with BO’s picture on it and a press release. You can’t see either one, but I’m sure it will be fixed by morning.

BO will rue the day Andrew left us because now we are all Andrew Breitbart.

Damn. I can’t see the poster...just the litte red “X”. But I get the idea from the article.

Thank you Andrew.

Obama, and Ayers and everyone else who follows Saul Alinsky: can you not see the folly of it?

Are you all so drunk with thoughts of your own brilliance that you let yourselves be so easily fooled?

All of liberalism is self-defeating, from beginning to end!

Like Lee Atwater before him, we lost Andrew Breitbart way too young. But we will fight on and save our country.

Oh Lord please let Newt read this. Let him be as fearless as Andrew himself. He is the most articulate of all of them, he is the bravest.

Please Newt, take the ball. Breitbart set it all up for you.

I am listening to Breitbart's book right now, "Righteous Indignation", and he nails Alinsky completely.

I am a bit older than Breitbart, and I had readily conceded that his views on liberalism were bound to be more well developed and focused than mine, and I cannot say how gratifying it is to hear Breitbart's views and realize that I have arrived at the same destinations and focal points, though not perhaps by the same path.

It is not so much that he and I are in agreement, but that we arrived at the same conclusions by differing thought processes.

It is validation for me.

Normally, I try not to place so much stock in validation, but in my journey to this spot, I have deliberately charged myself with questioning my premises, again, and again, and again.

Retrospection is a trait most liberals lack, and I have deliberately tried to ensure I am less likely to fall into that trap. I constantly question whether I am wrong or not.

Andrew Breitbart, may he rest in peace, has gone a long way to lessen the load of that self-imposed burden of doubt.

To listen to leftist politicians these days—from Obama to Sebelius and many others—is to understand that their values are no different from the godless Third Reich or the Roman minions of Caligula.

The difference is that our present day Caligulas cannot openly commit Caligula-like acts as Caligula and Hitler did, because the liberty of our nation still holds them accountable. It is still the Liberty of God.

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2 Corinthians 3:17)

“The play finishes with Alinsky announcing he’d rather go to Hell than Heaven. Why? ‘More comfortable there.’”

Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer, the father of all lies.

If people can’t recognize a lie when someone tells them hell is more comfortable than heaven, they’re foolish enough to be an Obama supporter.

Andrew did not want to re-litigate the 2008 election. Nor did he want to let Republicans off the hook. Instead, he wanted to show that the media had failed in its most basic duty: to uncover the truth, and hold those in power accountable, regardless of party.

Andrew knew the left could take care of themselves - he's the person who coined the term: Democrat-media complex. The above paragrah doesn't sound like Andrew - it sounds like some liberal saying all sides need to be held accountable. As if there's parity between us in the MSM. There IS NO parity. That's what Andrew - a freeper by the way - knew... That 'regardless of party' stuff is what I hear from every liberal... who wrote this?
