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.

The left in our country are doing the work of the jihadists.
We actually had a friend who was also about this age when he just dropped dead, just totally out of the blue while coaching his kids’ soccer game, no doubt. Left a wife and 3 kids. He was a military officer, totally fit — just had some sort of coagulation disorder. It can happen.
Angel’s Death they call them ... There can also be many heriditary weaknesses in major arteries ...
Everyday, living life loving what you do and being with friends and family, is precious.
Disgusted right now by all the liberal hate and venom being spewed out of their demonic mouths about him. The hate from the Left toward anyone who doesn’t agree with their demented views is just endless.
Check out post #640. Coincidence, maybe?
I do believe it has already begun, DV.
You ask if I was not willing to consider other scenarios. I pointed out that my post was ONE possible scenario. I didn’t say I wouldn’t consider others. I
n fact, it probably was a heart attack. But I wouldn’t put anything past the left wingers. And that includes those who vote for democrats.
Very true.. he had to know he`d be a high-value target. I hope he engaged in some contingency planning.
Ill never be convinced he wasnt murdered.
Which is it?
Eternal rest, Andrew.
You will be missed.
Just heard this, and the Obama college days videos was the first thing I thought of. OMG!
RIP Andrew. You`ll be greatly missed.
"Mysterious Dead Person Connected To 2008 Elections
The Washington Times reported April 5 that contractors for the State Department had improperly accessed passport information
for presidential candidates Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain, which resulted in a series of firings that reached into the agency's top ranks."
I’ve been avoiding this thread all morning, because it’s one of the saddest, most tragic losses to the conservative movement that I can remember in a long time.
RIP Andrew Breitbart
This is hitting me like when BKO died on 9-11.
Why don’t you tell me. You seem to know it all.
What terrible and stunning news.
Rest in peace, Mr. Breitbart.
Andrew was Jewish. If he was Orthodox, he would have been guarded from asap after his death by an Orthodox Jewish doctor and then the Jewish Burial Society, the Chevra Kadisha, would take over to ensure that his body was not mutilated in any way. If an autopsy is necessary, they would be right there to make sure that only the minimum damage was done to the body. If true, he is in the best hands possible and they will not rest until the exact cause of death is known.
I am in shock, but hope with all my heart that they are the ones in charge here so there can be no coverup. The Chevra Kadisha are very powerful, especially in CA, and like pit bulls when it comes to one of their own.
Having just been through a near death experience of my own, it has been a curiousity to me why some outspoken Conservatives have been experiencing these types of sudden death or near death situations. Others seem to have gone 180 degrees from their stated, long time principles until they are almost unrecognizable. Andy Breitbart has just been one of the most prominent. But there is Drudge and Coulter who seem to have forfeited ALL of their Conservative principles. Something is going on that is just not right.
I follow Breitbart and I wondered why he retweeted the vile things the left posts to him. Recently he said it was to expose the lefts hypocrisy and intolerance.
One of the insults they commonly posted was he gay or something sexual insult involved with being gay.
I asked them are they homophobes? I would tweet, is being gay a bad thing to you? Didn’t make sense to me since many of them are gay. One had a avatar of his *ahem* A****le. That was what Breitbart was doing when he retweeted their tweets. They are vile hypocrites.
They are DailyKos, Media Matters, Acorn, Seiu, OFA, Shoq, many paid posters to attack any opposition to Obama. They come in teams when a event to expose Obama is released. Many new accounts. Our tax dollars are being used against us by Obama. We pay for many of these people.
We lost one of our best conservative warriors. Prayers to the family.
I’m so shocked and saddened. He was too young.
Don’t get mad, now. I pointed out an inconsistency in your posts. It’s not the end of the world.
hard to believe with so many crazies and threats he’d be walking alone after midnight.
There is an explanation. Soros desperately wants to keep the public from hearing it though. I’m hoping Breitbart’s death doesn’t scare away the people who need to tell us the truth.
I’m glad you survived your near-death-experience.
Just got the following BREAKING NEWS:
R. Doc Zortman Info just released: “Andrew was recently working with Sheriff Joe in Arizona on the Obama Eligibility issue. He worked with a team of investigators that would come into my coffee shop and meet with him to discuss how the investigation was going. Andrew was about to blow the lid off the whole story using of all things- the ink that was used from the certificate shown in Hawaii....today is the Sheriff Joe’s day top release the investigation results and Andrew shows up dead 18 hrs before the news conference.So now we will see if the press conference will even go on with out Sheriff Joe’s top witness.... Well played Obama, well Played....”
The post you are replying to was deleted. I just got out of a meeting. I don’t even remember what I posted in 630. :-\
You can remind me if you want.
Are you TankerKC?
I hope that includes a complete tox screen. There are drugs that can mimic a heart attack.
Few of us doubt liberals are capable of murder for political reasons... that says much about how Obama and liberals have 'united'... rather than 'divided' and how the MSM's hatred of conservative Americans has poisoned the culture.
I wonder how the 'liberals' will use this to bash us further... wait for it - it'll happen.
Yes or no will suffice, unless you want to say more. See, here we believe in actually talking TO each other and not just ABOUT each other. ;)
This can’t be true. I’m still in shock and waiting for this to become the result of a cruel hoax from the Left. I’ve no doubt that the Left is celebrating this in the classless way they tend to.
Prayers out to his family and close friends.
I’ll let my 13+ year posting history speak for itself.
Somebody’s being silly.
That’s not yes or no.
You seem interested in pointing out inconsistencies in posters here at FR. Have you been pointing out the inconsistency in George Soros supporting both the gay/abortion agendas AND ALSO supporting Islamic terrorists? With a 13+-year posting history I’m sure you can find some really good places where you’ve pointed out the cognitive dissonance in Soros and his followers...
“There are drugs that can mimic a heart attack. “
I saw a true crime story about a man who killed his wife this way (other prior wives, too, I think) injecting something like succinol-something. It doesn’t stay in the bloodstream to be detected, and looks like a heart attack.
Absolutely. That's why I avoid such people whenever possible rather than try to engage them. Life's too short to deal with asses.
What a lot of 'em 'deserve' is a noose.
Hopefully, Dana will stay a true conservative warrior and not like Ann “Mitt Is Our Only Hope!” Coulter. Good luck, Dana!!
I immediately thought, how could they say “natural causes” within 5 hours of death because there is no way an autopsy was completed that quickly, surely not blood work results with toxicology and all that. And if it was “un-expected” that in and of itself would warrant an autopsy.
My thoughts exactly.
“Im sure there are a few copies of those videos in the hands of the good guys.”
Maybe James O’Keefe will pick up the cause with info Breitbart discovered.
“Listening to Hannity on Fox earlier he said that Brietbart got very little sleep. He was up late and out all the time.”
This can kill you. Trust me on this, I had my wakeup call three weeks ago. (TIA).
It almost always takes an event for an older healthy male to realize he isn’t 28 anymore, that we can’t do the things we used to do when we were younger, without consequence.
Luckily, I lived through mine with only minor consequences, but it’s a warning.
Yep, Billy Joel before he started to sound packaged.
I am still trying to take this in. What a shocker the news is.
Here’s some video on inducing a heart attack- from 1975 - I posted it before in case you didn’t see it.
Breitbart was dealing with dynamite - he stood to make trouble for people receiving billions of dollars in graft! Not hard to think it’s possible when there are already many people who would kill you for your pocket change.
He has a record of successfully uprooting weeds like Anthony Weiner. Breitbart was a real threat.
He should have released the tapes immediately, he would have been safer.
“Are there ways to induce a massive heart attack on someone so that it does not show up in an autopsy?”
I remember an episode of “America’s Most Wanted” or similar where some guy used succinylcholine (sp?) to kill his wife. Doesn’t show up in a tox screen. Mimics a heart attack. Horrid because it paralyzes all the muscles, including those for breathing, but the mind is not affected at all. The victim knows exactly what’s going on but can’t react, and it’s slow. They caught the guy, Dave somebody, hiding out on some Caribbean island, I think.
Look at what happened to those on Clintons’ Enemies List compliments of the Arkansas Mafia. Then consider how much more evil Hussein is than Billary, and how much more sophisticated Chicago thuggery is than almost anywhere else.
