AS SEEN ON TV – THE “SO?” SHIRT

Andrew Breitbart leaves behind a widow and four children. I wrote an obit for him here but the crux of it is…

When I was on Greg’s show Red Eye with Breitbart we were asked what we thought of Trump sponsoring a GOP debate. Greg and I had the knee-jerk reaction of scoffing at the whole thing. When Breitbart asked us what was so funny we said, “Well, it’s obviously just some rich guy showboating.” Then he taught me a word I never really paid attention to before: “So?”

This word defines Breitbart to me more than any other. At a bar one night I was whining about the allegation that all libertarians are funded by the Koch brothers. “So?” he replied. Andrew didn’t play the PC left’s game. Libertarians don’t get magical checks from the Koch brothers, but so what if they did? George Soros spends billions paying people he likes. There’s nothing wrong with that, either.

The night after his death I went on Red Eye and wore a homemade “So?” shirt (we talk about it here from 2:15 to 5:20). People started asking about it so we had a bunch silk-screened and set up a charity where we’ll charge $40 a shirt and give 100% of the profits to Andrew’s widow and kids. I’ll make public all the receipts and costs so the whole thing is completely transparent.

I hope a lot of people buy this and we can help the family but I also hope it will encourage people to start saying, “So?” more. If you have something honest and genuine to say and it’s from the heart, blurt it out. If someone decides it’s offensive…

UPDATE: As a commenter below stated, “Andrew was many things but he was not rich.” He went to every Tea Party rally and most OWS rallies. His work employed dozens of people but every time he made some money, he poured it back into his websites. He was also plagued by lawsuits. This isn’t throwing some money at a millionaire. It’s an attempt to give a grieving family one less thing to worry about, if only for a moment.

The video is in the word “here” in the first sentence.

I watched the show that nite and was quite impressed at Breitbart's use of the word so.

It's ironic that one of the most dramatic words that Andrew Breitbart used was a simple two letter one, So?

I couldn’t agree more. That was his overwhelming strength and what we need in our leaders too. It is just like almost all the other crap thrown around particularly words like ‘racist’. The correct response is not pointing fingers that they are more racist or backpedaling but simply.....So?

I think there is one. It says “I am Breitbart.” There is an “I am Breitbart” thread on Twitter.

This should become more popular than the Che shirts.

Like Daniel Knauf..”I am Andrew Beitbart”.

I’d be happy to purchase a t-shirt to show my support.
