In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)
Breibart.com ^ | 3/1/12 | Larry Solov

Posted on 03/01/2012 6:00:33 AM PST by ImJustAnotherOkie

Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.

We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.

Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.

Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:

I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.

Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

Picked up by Business Insider. I posted a thread as it was reported there and by the Daily Caller, about 22 minutes ago.

Jake Tapper is tweeting that it has been confirmed by the LA coroner. Just after midnight PST.

I can’t believe this.

How very sad, he was so young. Please pray for his family, they are hurting badly, I know what they are going through because my father died at 45 of natural causes (heart attack).
Next, pray for our country, we have lost a great warrior in the fight for liberty. Now all of us must pick up the banner and continue the fight. God help us all.

It’s being confirmed by Breitbart.com editor-in-chief Joel Pollak to POLITICO on Thursday morning that Breitbart had passed away.

One of the good guys. How sad, not just for we who lost a warrior, but for his family. May God console them in their grief.

RIP, Andrew, and thank-you for your hard work and fearlessness.

Heartbroken. R.I.P. Andrew. Condolences to his family. We have lost a great conservative warrior. Now lets get a verified cause of death. Something is not right here.

Hey...I’ve seen my fair share of FReepers dance on the grave of a dead lefty. Now granted...most of us try to shut them up...but the point is this: We have our low lifes over here too.

Talk about weird coincidences!

Daily Caller's Tucker Carlson, Breitbart, dine with Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn in Chicago
SunTimes | February 7, 2012 | Lynn Sweet

WASHINGTON--Chicago's Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn--vilified during Barack Obama's 2008 election and beyond as former Weather underground leaders--served dinner to Daily Caller founder Tucker Carlson and his guests Sunday, after the founder of the conservative website bought time with the couple at an Illinois Humanities Council auction.

It figures they’d be giddy, but I don’t plan on subjecting myself to their filth.

An embolism or aneurism would certainly be possible causes. I’m pretty stunned as well.
