Skip to comments.In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)
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, andfamouslyI 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. Ive lost friends, perhaps dozens. But Ive gained hundreds, thousandswho knows?of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

When I think how this man cut off over 500 billion in slush funds used by ACCORN I am very suspect. The money involved flowed to many Unions,Non-Profits and in the end the Dem party. Very few have caused so much damage to a very dark and deep structure.
Where is that quote from?
Makes me wonder when he changed the ending of his book so that it reads more like an obituary.
When he said “Ive got video from his college days...” he may have sealed his death warrant. Everything about this raises suspicion to a whole new level.
I’m also wondering what he was doing just taking a walk after midnight in L.A.
I know Brentwood is a good area, but who walks that late at night?

Let’s put it this way. If you wanted something bad to happen to breitbart and you know he walks alone around the neighborhood at night...
RIP Breitbart, Your exposure of the Leftist Acorn movement and the hypocrisies of the radical left will never be forgotten. Thank You Andrew!
Just came on suddenly. He was always very active and civic minded. Active fire captain, men’s groups withing the church, boy scout leader...and more.
Natural causes at 43?? Had he been ill?
“Theyll have to do an autopsy.”
Not all coroners will automatically do a autopsy. If it has already been deemed natural causes, if he has had any medical history of certain conditions, it’s possible a too-busy county coroner won’t bother unless the family insists and are willing to wait a lengthy amount of time, for their turn in line, for it to be done, prolonging burial.
Sadly, I won’t be surprised at all if no autopsy is done.
I know tens of thousands followed AB...I did (do?) and i am sure that Twitter is just overwhelmed with followers (and noobs) “reading”’his tweets...but it keeps crashing (locking up) for me after about a day ago.
I know it is just a tech issue...but I wanted to post it. AB did get threatened..a lot. A couple tweets (in the last couple of days) stand out. I hope/pray that these will be looked into. Deeply. AB...gave it back to “them” and this was on his public Tweets...privately, I wonder about the stress...the worries got to him. I hope all avenues are checked out.
Radio is replaying his last interview with Larry O’Connor on WIBC from Tuesday. At the time, that interview on Tuesday struck me as very odd. After listening again-———maybe it wasn’t so odd....but for some reason it really caught me vs. other times I’ve heard him on the radio.
Rush talking about Andrew now. Breitbart was “outside himself” compared to a lot of people who focus on themselves. Notes that Breitbart gave he and Katherine a classic painting of Reagan for their wedding.
Prayers for his family and friends. Godspeed, Andrew.
I choose to believe that God does forgive us for these minor slips in thought - how could we be expected to embrace such evil?!
Reading these comments and those who express some curiosity of what may be the ‘truth’ and responses to the effect of taking off the tin foil hats - I’m left wondering why it is some kind of crime to wonder what the facts are?! I realize people do die of ‘natural causes’ at a young age, yet, they are in the minority by and far.
I simply know that his brand will be missed. How I wish the pukes who have representing us in Congress had .000001% of Andrew’s courage. They all make me mad as he** ~
The day of the posse is a signal to the media - which have ALL been threatened that their lives were in danger if they reported on Obama’s eligibility problem.
We are witnessing the absolutely chilling, calculated movements of the Soros regime.
Last night there was a thread about Soros’ ex-girlfriend saying she wanted to release video of Soros. She claims that he had somebody stalk her. I commented in the thread last night that she isn’t the only person Soros has stalked and that her coming out to corroborate her claims at this precise moment could help people get a real picture of how Soros operates - and that his threats to the media were dead serious.
I knew there would be some big story to try to upstage the posse. That the big story would be so directly related to Soros threats on the media is beyond what even I expected though. They had to reiterate the threat to the media in light of this big event so I should have seen it coming, but this is so blatant that it may well totally blow Soros’ cover.
O’Reilly’s concerns for Breitbart were well-founded. O’Reilly knows what Soros has done; they all do. I wonder if Fox still doesn’t have anybody signed up to attend the posse’s press conference...
Thank you for those scriptural reminders. It does help. :)
Could be someone sprayed him with Sarin Gas while out walking.
RIP Breitbart, well done. You were born for this time and you were the catalyst for a new era in journalism. I pray we maintain and take your BIG idea and continue to bring integrity back to our way of life. Righteous indignation woke us up to the corruption that was stealing our heritage and our children’s future.
“Aren’t two sparrows sold for a penny? Not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father’s permission.” Matthew 10:29
where I turn when things don’t make sense.
The quote is from me. I was awakened in the middle of the night, felt something, got up, and it came to me. About 2 am.
Either that , or some other “sudden, silent killer”.
The Obama list is getting longer.
- Donald Young - unsolved murder - tied to gay scandal
- LT Harris - unsolved murder - tied to passport records
- Ashley Turton - Car fire. ‘Acute alcohol amount.’ Wife of WH assistant.
If you start to include Valerie Jarretts tree it makes for some interesting reading.
Her husband died at 40 of a heart attack. And his 2nd wife died at at 44.
Hard to believe. Very sad. I also am a little suspicious. Natural condition? Prayers and condolences to Andrew’s family.
If that happened. It means war.

I thought coroners only removed a body.
We are engaged in massive spiritual warfare.
Which time zone are you in?
I was saddened to hear this news. It’s always a sad thing for me to see a person die so young. When it’s a person who had dedicated their life to helping the nation return to sound principles, I feel like I have lost a good friend and ally.
I was not a big follower of Andrew. I was aware of him. I did believe he was doing good work, and I do feel like I have lost a good friend and ally.
My thoughts, sympathies, and prayers go out to his family, friends, and associates. They also go out to efforts that will suffer by his perpetual absence.
Good men are too few and far between. They are a national resource. Things that should be done, will go undone now.
I will miss seeing Andrew pop up in the media from time to time, knowing that he was still expending his energy on projects I approved of.
When I heard he collapsed during a walk, that is exactly what I thought. Was there someone with an umbrella in the vicinity?
And if there were that many threats against his life, why would he be out walking alone at midnight? If I were his family or friends, I’d be going with him or following him out of real concern.
Yes, he will be so missed. A devastating loss for his family, and a stunning loss for his fellow patriots.
And your prayer -”Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.”
Amen, and amen.
Our sadness clouds and obscures to us the wonder Andrew Breitbart is now experiencing on this day - his Easter Day.
He gave all that he could give to defend and promote the values of our founding fathers and he like the rest of us was trying to save our country.
well done Andrew...He went too soon. But he gave all that he could give...heart and soul
Rest In Peace, champion of freedom, liberty & opportunity, Andrew Freitbart!!! The world has lost a great man and leader!!! Sympathy to his magnificent family & much prayers, also.
Andrew lit the candle brightly for all conservatives, lovers of freedom and liberty. He was fearless, and he clearly saw the “real” un-American Obama and his hateful cohorts!!! Too bad, there are too many Republicans like John McCain, that preached to us all, what good man Obama was.
I believe the spirit of Breitbart burns on, the candle burns brighter for freedom, liberty and opportunity for all people. Andrew has left his mark on many apostles. The battle for our freedom, liberty & opportunity, and.....our great nation goes on with much talent and brains ignited by the simple being of Andrew Breitbart!!!
Republicans, all, take note, grow a backbone!!! Rip the political heart out of anti-American Obama and his Democrat Party!!! Be brave and truthful, and...not a whimp like John McCain!!!
RIP Andrew Breibart.
Without an autopsy, how do they know it was natural causes? in addition, how do they know it was a heart attack and not some other event such as an aneurism?
The man was a controversial public figure and he “unexpectedly” drops dead on a sidewalk at 12:30 AM, alone. An autopsy is absolutely called for in this case.

I wonder if his tweets, calls, or other communications would show what he was doing.
Somebody asked who called 911. That could also be interesting. Somebody close enough to see that he fell down would also be close enough to shoot him with a poison dart, and they’d want a witness to what happened so the cops wouldn’t be called in as if there was foul play...
—Why would you have to take my comment out of context? Breitbart is irreplaceable today in the conservative political realm. There is no one out there with his skill set who can expose the left as he did.—
I was not taking it out of context. I was implying (in my mind) what you said in your second sentence there. I’m also thinking of Stephen, who was stoned, followed by the rise of Paul. The Lord works in mysterious ways, and I think the Lord’s fingerprints (and Satan’s) are all over what is going on in the world right now. I very much see the world as in a spiritual battle more than ever.
When I was finally convinced that he had died I wondered, consciously, what the Lord now has in mind. It is possible we are entering a period of Jeremiah and Lamentations. It is possible we’re already in it. It’s why I’ve said, since the early 90’s, that I feel like a Jew in mid-1930’s Germany. I still do, but even more so.
Indeed, however...who’s to say the autopsy would be completed without duress?
I don’t understand “dying of natural causes “ at 46.
Yeah. That's the first thing that went through my mind. I'm wondering if anyone else has them.
Did he have someone else that would be privy to this kind of thing?
—It is all over Fox News and other organizations. —
Not when I made that post. ;-)
—Trust me, nothing would have made me happier than this being a hoax.—
I have lost all faith in our congresspets. Even the freshmen,
who we had such great hopes for, seem to have become part of
Exceptions? Alan West and Marco Rubio. They seem to still
understand why they were chosen, just to name a couple.
So sorry to learn of Andrew B. His passion encouraged and inspired many. It is painful to think of his wife and children. Prayers of comfort for all affected.
Let us all not forget to send prayers for Andrew’s wife and children in their time of loss.
Andrew touched us all, in a way that made us want to care even more than we thought we already did. There are not too many conservatives that have been as effective in such a short time as he was.
It is the conservative voices, some louder than other, which will always defend the constitution in a way that helps protect our rights, not the politicians. If it were not for the conservative voices holding the politicians feet to the fire, they would always do what is best for themselves instead of us or the country.
We are faced with an election in November that will decide if our children will be free or slaves. So it is up to us all to step up to the plate, and fight the good fight.
It is time to do what Andrew was doing, get back into their faces and force the left to back off. We need to do what he helped us do we did in the summers of 2009 & 2010. Take it to them in our local town hall council meetings, and become a voice so loud that Andrew will hear it in heaven!
who was he on FR?

Looks more like “First Blood” to me....
