Hating Breitbart - A Fitting Film Tribute to a Unique Political Warrior
American Thinker ^ | 10/12/2012 | Scott Swett

Posted on 10/12/2012 2:53:48 PM PDT by Interesting Times

Andrew Breitbart, who died last March at just 43 years of age, was the hardest-hitting conservative activist of the Obama era. If you share his conviction that the leftist-dominated media is a threat to open political debate, you will want to see Hating Breitbart, which was screened recently in Washington. The film offers an affectionate look at the activist's political battles and outsized personality, but it also captures the rage he inspired in his adversaries -- partly due to his flamboyant, combative style, but mostly because he wouldn't play by their rules.

"Whether Andrew Breitbart will be remembered as an aberration or a prototype remains to be seen, but he understood something that conservatives too often forget: politics is not a business or a game. Our freedom is under attack, and this is a war."

Even his arch enemy Ariana Huffington respected him. Mostly.

Great article! I really appreciate your writing this article about Andrew. One of the things that has happened to America in the last 50 years is that we've become spectators. We watch the world go by. We read what others write and we let others act when we could. America has always been the land of possibility and action. Andrew was no spectator.

Andrew embodied the political action of a 19th century America and communicated that action with the newest technology. As America has aged it has become more gentrified. Andrew showed us the way back to activity and activism while he actively rejected the artificial turf activism of the left.

We are Breitbart!

Thanks I.T. Breitbart spoke for “”US””, he felt just as we do and wasn’t afraid to speak out. Hard to believe 7 months have gone by already..........

I STILL think his heart attack is mysterious, especially since he had just dined with Bill Ayers and his wife. I know....get the tin foil.

Thank you so much for this thread!

Patriots in DC area, LA, Texas and St. Louis have a chance to go to the opening there this weekend!

Here is a link to the Hating Breitbart website for theater info and showtimes: http://www.hatingbreitbart.com/theaters

The film opens this weekend 10/19/12 in DC, LA, Texas, and St. Louis. As most of you know, the success of the opening weekend is crucial to a national roll-out. Andrew Breitbart’s story needs to be seen by as many people as possible. As Andrew put it, “The media is the wall we have to climb over in order for our voices to be heard. Once our voices are heard, then democracy can happen.”

Like Andrew, we don't have any major media outlets at our disposal, this is a grassroots effort, so anything you can do in the next 24 hours to get this information out and help us get people into the theaters is hugely important.

The buzz is great so far, now we need your help with the momentum!

Thank you all for your kind offers to circulate this information — family, friends, Facebook pages, lists, activists, Twitter, Tea Party groups...Let's pack these theaters! Let's fight on for Andrew who never stopped working to bring out the TRUTH!

Thanks so much for your help!

You certainly welcome. Thanks for helping to spread the word to those who might be close enough to the opening cities to see the movie this weekend.

Had friends who were at the premier in DC and it is a wonderful tribute to Andrew that everyone should see! I can't wait to be able to see it myself. Hoping it opens down here in Florida real soon!

Pinging Missouri Freepers in hopes many can see the movie this weekend in St. Louis! See the link at post #21.

Thanks for the ping. Breitbart set the bar for the rest of us to reach for. He left us way way too soon. Young conservatives are really inspired by his energy and tenacity to get at the truth. That will be his legacy.

I can’t go. I will see it one day. I truly loved him and that was the saddest I’ve been about the death of a public figure in my life. I admired him so much. My iPad still is engraved “I am Breitbart.”

The best way to make sense of his being taken early is to be him. He would have wanted that. I’ll never measure up but his example gives me courage to be bolder.

If “Hating Breitbart” isn't being shown in your area, you can DEMAND IT! Just click on the link at the top of the website and fill out your name, email and zip code. The more requests they get, the more distribution will follow!!!

Please send this to all your lists! This is the one movie the liberals despise so let's make their lives miserable by making this film a HUGE success! If you want to piss off a liberal today, DEMAND IT!!!!

As Andrew would say, Get out your whistles...DEMAND IT!!!

Thank you!

Well said. Andrew was a fearless political warrior.
It was like a punch in the stomach to hear of his loss.
Looking forward to seeing this film.
We can all learn from his life story.

We saw Hating Breitbart tonight.

I’ve been looking forward to seeing this movie ever since Breitbart announced it. I never had the honor of meeting him personally but I cried for days after he died. I realized the implications of his untimely death and I mourned as though he was a dear friend. He was a valiant man and we miss him.

His movie is inspirational to all of us to take up our cameras, reveal the truth and expose the hypocrisy of the media.
