Skip to comments.In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)

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.

or a little injected air bubble?
I’m in shock over this. This man was doing what the mainstream media doesn’t do... this is a great loss for conservatives.
I am shocked, also. This is a very tragic loss.
God bless this man for all that he did. Prayers for his family and friends.
I do not want to believe it. AB was one of the most brilliant men of my generation.
Give Sean Hannity CREDIT for getting the word out about the need to keep quiet on the issue of “conspiracy theories”. These conspiracy theories not only make conservative sites such as Free Republic look BAD but also adds more pain to the family and friends of Mr. Breibart.
Please fellow FRpers, we can be better than that. Please refraim from the conspiracy stuff. Thank-you.
His legacy demands that the tapes he was going to release be released, with balloons and skyrockets and all the voice people can give them. His death is such a major loss that others must come along and fill the void and go on with his unfinished work.
“These conspiracy theories not only make conservative sites such as Free Republic look BAD”
But the INSANE hate and celebratory casket dancing by the left on other websites DOES NOT make them look bad.
Mostly because NO ONE in the mainstream media is going to have the balls to report it, since they are too busy joining in the revelry.
You should SEE some of the crap being posted about AB on some of the lefty media sites, like Daily Kos.
I am devastated.
This is the Conservative/Tea Party equivalent of Gen. Robert E. Lee losing his “right arm”, Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, at Chancellorsville.
Very sad and disheartening day.
But we must now re-double our efforts.
RIP Mr. Breitbart.
So is the story that Andrew was working on for the fall election going to go away? On Obama?
I’m interested in the truth as well. And seeing clearly that Obama and his minions have no problem using some questionable tactics, I’d like to see the case fully investigated. KOS people would hate an investigation into the situation - it may cast a bad light on their dear leader.
The truth is what counts, not worrying about scaring the sheeple that maybe there are sociopaths in government. Potentially dangerous sociopaths.
On that note - check out the Sheriff Joe Thread - apparently this administration isn’t above forgery! And O was raised at the knee of Ayers who had no problem with the idea of killing people to further the progressive cause.
Let’s also not jump to the conclusion it was ‘natural’ like the rubes they think we are. Real life isn’t a fairy land of rainbow colored ponies.
Something big to be released on Monday. Just announced by Dana Loesch on the radio.
Watch the Bigs on Monday. She says progressives aren’t going to be liking it.
I feel like we just lost a General in our war.
For a while there, I was reading "Illinois Humanities" as "Illuminati."
Very well put. To quote AB: “At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night”. Well may you RIP knowing you did all you could while you were here. We will miss you dearly.
A fellow frequent business traveler friend of mine nearly died a couple of years ago in his early 40’s from blood clots that formed in his calves from flying so much. I’m guessing this could be a possibility given that Andrew traveled so much.
It’s the same as being on a jury and voting “not guilty” because the evidence isn’t there. Doesn’t mean I believe he didn’t do it.
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 Joes 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 Joes top witness.... Well played Obama, well Played....
It appeared to me that Breitbart was aligned with the Coulter camp in ridiculing the eligibility issue.
Rest in Peace, Andrew. You fought the good fight; you ran the good race.
Enjoy your reward in heavenly bliss.

and their associates
