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.

Well, did you not write that His plan is already set for people and that Breitbart’s time was up? Maybe I misread you?

They say that the conservatives including Breitbart didnt give any respect to Ted Kennedy when he died. I dont know about that but really what does it matter. They should take the high road and be respectful. I guess that is too difficult for them.”

no more mr. nice guy....fight fire with fire.... “
Yes, we've got our low-lifes over here, too. I remember the Betty Ford thread all too well.
The difference is over here most Freepers called for respectful language and finally the moderators stepped in and set an appropriate tone by stopping the worst of it.
Over on the left wing fringe, respect for office and for duly constituted authority does not exist. It does not exist because the leftists don't believe in such things.
We do, and we need to act accordingly.
The worst of the leftists are socialists, communists, and anarchists, if not in their avowed theory, then in their actual practices. “Community organizing” is an innocuous term for Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” and those tactics are downright dangerous. Their practices have spread from the radicals to infect the moderately liberal element because they work — disrespect is a powerful toxin made all the more dangerous because it often feels good to “stick it to the man.” Even though those tactics work, we as conservatives need to avoid them because they have their own logic, and when consistently practiced, will lead us places we do not want to go.

I'm glad to hear that.
The way we treat those with whom we strongly disagree says a lot about our internal character. When the gloves come off and we're angry enough to fight back hard, observers find what comes out of our inner selves.
I have no idea what Breitbart did or didn't do with Sen. Kennedy's death. I do know that we shouldn't be piling on Sen. Kennedy, Breitbart, or almost anyone else.
Yes, I do know about Psalm 139:19-22: “Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain. Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.”
The key point is for that passage to apply, the person must be an enemy of God, not merely our own enemy. Such cases exist — the Kim family of North Korea, Joseph Stalin, and similar God-haters and church-persecutors come to mind — but they are few and far between.
Interesting times, pal .......................................................................................... FRegards
You’re right. Things seem to be really coming to a head.
Just watched the movie “Hating Breitbart” on Netflix.
You are missed.
When I first heard he had died, it was like someone had punched me in the stomach and knocked the wind out of me.
A tenacious happy warrior, irreplaceable.
At first, I though it was him, bullshitting the mainstream media.
Then, I had a bad feeling in my gut.
He is irreplaceable.
But, somebody will follow in his steps.
Came across this. Don’t know if it is true.
