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.

I understand. One of my first thoughts was “why couldn’t it have been George Soros!”.

God forgive me.

Any chance of him being taken out by unnatural causes?
I would say yes, since he recently announced he had some college-era videos of Obama.


I know that this is not the time for politics but would this scare anyone he trusted into not releasing these photos? On the thread about the photos, half the posters wondered about breitbart’s safety.

I believe many of us are suspicious. Hopefully, AB made a copy or two, one left in the care of his wife.

“Dana Loesch will carry the torch for Breitbart”

She is easy on the eyes as well, she might be a great torch bearer.

I feel like my guts were ripped out. What a rotten, mysteriously untimely, stupid, senseless, horrible loss of a champion who is uniquely irreplaceable. Damn! Damn! Damn! R.I.P.....

1) I’ll never be convinced he wasn’t murdered.

2) Now we know why the GOP cowards won’t stand up against obama. They’re not willing to die for this country.

3) I sure hope he shared his information with some others who will put it out there. In this day and age it’s almost impossible to destroy all evidence.

4) Sherrif Joe, watch your back and don’t trust any of your deputies.

Listening to Hannity on Fox earlier he said that Brietbart got very little sleep. He was up late and out all the time.

What a shock. Terrible loss for all of us. And he had young children.
