Our loss today is staggering.

Please watch this video and honor Andrew Breitbart's memory by following what he said about voting for whoever our eventual candidate will be.

If we don't vote THEY win.

I will be honoring the memory of Andrew Breitbart on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 when I vote.

As you say, “No greater honor than to VOTE on Nov. 6th, 2012”. Wow, he would like that. We will miss him.

Thank you for giving some thought on how to honor Andy.

Any other thoughts?

Can we even wear T shirts any more with a picture of a political figure on voting day, or is that against the rules?

I was just thinking about something to visibly add to election day to honor the Brave one, Breitbart.

I was totally shocked when I read of his untimely death on my ISP news page. Just last week he subbed for Dennis Miller for 2 or 3 evenings, and I enjoyed listening to him. He railed against Media Matters whom, I believe, he thought was trying to get conservatives off the airwaves. He seemed to have an especially rancorous opinion of Media Matters because they had caused him a lot of stress and could be partly responsible for his death. My memory is slipping so I don't remember the details of those last shows and exactly what Media Matters had done to him or attempted to do.

It's not clear why he was out walking so early in the morning. Maybe it is safe there.

I'm so sorry to read this sad news, and my heartfelt condolences to friends and family.

There are already questions being raised about Andrew’s untimely death.
“Natural Causes?” What really happened?

If we are to honor Breitbart, we must continue the fight against the left.

This is a sad day but it will much sadder if Americans give up and surrender to the left and their strangle hold of the media.

And also, let us thank God for the life of Andrew Breitbart. May he rest in peace.

I posted this elsewhere, but I think it's worth repeating ...

I have a suggestion - "The Breitbart Prize!" for outstanding Journalism.

I suggest that Conservatives establish a fund to present yearly, The Breitbart Prize for Outstanding Journalism in the spirit of Andrew Breitbart.

I suggest Conservative folks like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and leaders like Sarah Palin take the reins and institute such an award. I'll help if I can.

Rather than b!tching about the "Lamestream Media" form a committee to establish the award guidelines and principles and every year, judge Conservative Journalists on their work.

If the prize is prestigious and rewarding, good Journalists will vie for it.

What better tribute could we make to Andrew Breitbart than such an event as the presenting of The Breitbart Prize every year?

What better way to encourage decent, honest Journalism's return to our land to replace the corrupt, biased, one-sided crap we get today?

How We Can Honor His Memory

Vote Obama out along with all other elected government officials who tromp on the Constitution.

I was first shocked as many were, then I was and still am very sad for me, but mostly for his wife Susie and his four children. I’m also so very very angry, because I like some of you believe he was murdered (yes I’ll say it) by the current white house occupier.

We will continue to shine the light on the truth in your absence Andrew, and ALL the truth will eventually come out.

One voice falls silent but a chorus of thousands will arise in his spirit.

Shocked.Saddened.I just can't believe it. The conservative cause has lost a real hero. Rush said on his show today that he was on the phone only two hours before he died. No warning.

Prayers for his family. There are four children without a father this morning.

Pick up the fallen flag and get busy. Get out from behind the keyboard and take the fight to the very gates of MSM Mordor.

I think daily picketing the Fifth Column media complex in one’s own town would be a fitting tribute.

Great idea...that would be the most relevant way to honor him. Perhaps Brent Bozell, Tucker Carlson, Jonah Goldberg, Greg Gutfeld and others who knew him could organize this.

The Brietbart Prize for Outstanding Journalism is a brilliant idea.

We’ve lost our most outspoken warrior. Who will replace him?

Every Freeper must do their part in this war, for Andrew knew it was war and he spoiled for the fight. Now its our turn.

Go with God, Andrew.

If you still have faith that this country can survive under rampant Liberalism, go to Yahoo and read the comments about Breitbart’s death.

I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Breitbart a few years ago. He had a sharp wit and seemed genuinely down to earth.

He was vilified by the Left for speaking the truth and today they are enjoying a feast of hatred that only proves everything Mr. Breitbart knew about them.

Rest in Peace Mr. Breitbart. May God Bless your Family with the strength to endure.

Good idea. Maybe fit the word truth in there as in “Breitbard Truth In Journalism Prize” or something like that.

I read something on this in one thread this morning. A Marilyn Monroe type death, well we will never know.

Sure hope someone has the goods of what he was going to spill.

May he rest in peace. I feel like I lost my stomach.

I had a dream a few weeks ago that something bad was going to happen to Andrew after he was with Bill Ayers. I guess it must had troubled me more than I knew by him being with that evil man.

Excellent suggestion, eCS.

Will need to get it out to the right people...but be careful that the idea remains your own and is not usurped.

Maybe it could be a scholarship set up to help young Conservative journalists OR a yearly award to a journalistic organization or person who follows the model of Andrew Breitbart.

It’s early to even think about this..but good for you.
Hard to accept that this has happened to such a wonderful guy.

“If you still have faith that this country can survive under rampant Liberalism, go to Yahoo and read the comments about Breitbart’s death.”

We have clearly lost any semblance of a polite society. Can civil war be far behind. And yes, I did object to some of the more vile comments in the wake of Whitney Huston’s death. It goes both ways, a push / pull effect like in the rise of racism. The fabric of America has been torn appart in a manner not seen since the depression. All you have to do is look at OWS to see the future.

RIP Mr. Breitbart. .

How about honoring him by making sure the usurper spends the rest of his days in Leavenworth penitentiary.

Andrew Breitbart was a noble man. In his honor I would institute the Breitbart NOBLE Prize in Dishonest Journalism. After all, Breitbart was all about exposing the corrupt news media.

It would be announced that $1000 would be given to Media Matters to help it continue its dishonest corrupt practices in the name of the Noble Prize winner who would never make such a donation due to the fact these people harbor no personal charity. They just leech off of others.

Breitbart knew the best way to root out these rats is to mock them.

Really going to miss this guy. Terribly sad for his family.
