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.

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.

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.

While it is certainly not unheard of for a 40-something to die of a massive heart attack (myocardial infarction), there should be a family history of similar things or, some lab indications of untoward risk. Not absolute, but usually there are these things...at any rate, this is a bit scary, and Rush, Sean and Mark: I hope you all are taking extra security precautions these days.

Watch Andrew Breitbart’s Fiery CPAC Speech: I Have ‘College Days’ Obama Videos

EXCERPT

... “I have videos, this election we’re going to vet him,” Breitbart disclosed to raucous applause. “We are going to vet him from his college days to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”

“The videos are going to come out, the narrative is going to come out, that Barack Obama met a bunch of silver ponytails in the 1980s, like Bill (Ayers) and Bernadine (Dohrn), who said one day we would have the presidency, and the rest of us slept as they plotted, and they plotted, and they plotted and they oversaw hundreds of millions of dollars in the Annenberg Challenge and they had real money, from real capitalists. Then they became communists. We got to work on that. That is a parenthesis. Barack Obama is a radical, we should not be afraid to say that! Okay? And Barack Obama was launched from Bill and Bernadine’s salon. I’ve been there.”

The notice is now on Drudge and Redstate...

Condolences to his family; he will be missed.

He was such a voice for the conservative cause and he wasn’t afraid of the other side.

I must say I was suspicious of the “natural causes” for his death especially after he stated he had videos of Obama from college he would be releasing.

Sure does. His death had better be investigated absolutely thoroughly and without the slightest trace to anyone associated with the left. This also makes me wonder if it's a warning to Sheriff Joe.

I’ve known people who died of heart conditions or aneurysms in their 20s or 30s.

One was an Air Force lieutenant in great shape at age 25. He came up to bat in a softball game and just dropped dead on the plate.

This is not that unusual although given his enemies some degree of suspicion is not unexpected.

Massive Coronary...It happens.

they do but not in one so young and there are many ways to induce one chemically. I dunno if Andrew was a fan of conspiracy theories but in his passing he has surely unleashed a big one. Sort of a parting gift ...

Rest In Peace, brave warrior. You have left us too soon. Prayers up for Andrew's loved ones.
