Forum Post: In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)............

Posted 2 years ago on March 1, 2012, 10:21 a.m. EST by nytefury (-57)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart.

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, and—famously—I 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. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night. Andrew is at rest, yet the happy warrior lives on, in each of us.

He was one of a kind. We can only hope, the last of that kind.

It will be nice to have an election cycle with one less dedicated liar.

May he reap in the afterlife, what he has sown in this life.

Off the top of your head,,,, can you give ONE LIE. An example of a LIE. I know,,, you will now search the internet because you dont have one,,, but in the spirit of the question that I ask,,, give all of us ONE example of a lie that he made. One that can be backed up with your truth.

[-] 3 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

I quoted an old cliche' saying

"no two countries with nuclear weapons ever went to war with each other"

someone pointed out Pakistan and India

but

The Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 was a military conflict between India and Pakistan. Indian, Bangladeshi and international sources consider the beginning of the war to be Operation Chengiz Khan, Pakistan's December 3, 1971 pre-emptive strike on 11 Indian airbases.[22][23] Lasting just 13 days it is considered one of the shortest wars in history.[24][25]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indo-Pakistani_War_of_1971

and

Pakistan began focusing on nuclear weapons development in January 1972 under the leadership of Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, who delegated the program to the Chairman of PAEC Munir Ahmad Khan. In 1976

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pakistan_and_weapons_of_mass_destruction

.

so I guess maybe the quote is correct

He lied about ACORN.

[-] -1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

That clears it up. Thanks for submitting the details of "the" LIE. Now I understand the issue. "HE LIED ABOUT ACORN." Clear as punch. (I guess he spelled ACORN wrong? They opened at 8:00am and he reported they actually opened at 8:30am? FLASH, THIS JUST IN. Reporter shooz has this special report. "HE LIED. I will have more details when they become available. Now back to you."

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

There was NOTHING the man said or did that was clear.

Except his absolute hate of anything even slightly liberal.

Even slightly outside of his beliefs, which were false anyway.

Since you are obviously unaware of the lies told about ACORN, here's some other examples of his lies, including lies about Occupy.

I not interested in reading the crap you spent ALL day trying to find. If you didnt have 10 and you didnt have even 1 example of a true lie he had made earlier in the day.

Breitbart wasn't a "total asshole" that's just your uninformed Leftist opinion.

I guess I have to explain,my post was countering your post by describing a true ASSHOLE that was Ted Kennedy. Ted was a real honest to God piece of shit ASSHOLE. Brietbart was a great man who accomplished great things not a fucking murdering rich liar.

So I just was giving you some perspective,so you could maybe make a more informed judgement. Breitbart was exactly right about OWS and the incidents of rape,you may be in denial but nonetheless there were rapes and murders at OWS camps. These are facts. Just except it for what it is.

[-] 2 points by Chimptastic (67) 2 years ago

Sorry for the change in name, my accounts regularly stop working on this site. But in response, you SHOULD be glad if Dinnerjacket dies, or if Jong Un dies, or any terrorist dies, and you definitely should be glad if Chavez dies, his manner of demagoguery is almost indistinguishable from Breitbart's. People who make it their business to spread hate and fear SHOULD be detested, thankfully it seems you are starting to learn that. Also no where in my post did I mention left, right, or censorship, and I certainly don't know how you equated my satisfaction with his death as somehow causing your rights to expression to be curtailed (though you have been responding to others as well so you may have included that last part as a result of mistaking my post for someone else's).

[-] -3 points by Carlitini99 (-167) 2 years ago

Breitbart was a conservative publisher to compare him to any of the leaders i mentioned is sick. Even Media Matters is being civil about his death. But you said 'the earth is well-rid......' . That is sick.

[-] 4 points by MichaelBlack17 (40) 2 years ago

Actually, I was registered as a, and voted straight, Republican, at all levels of government, for over 25 years. It was the rise of this type lack of truth-telling, and the awful damage it did, that persuaded me I needed to make adjustments -- that somehow my natural economic (and, social) philosophy was being abused for some racist, power end. So, I might well be looney, but left was anything but me. .

[+] -5 points by Carlitini99 (-167) 2 years ago

oh sure, and i believe in the tooth fairy

[-] 2 points by MichaelBlack17 (40) 2 years ago

100% true; I am a born-again Christian and a generation-long Business professor (15 years of it, at Christian colleges in the Los Angeles area). I don't know that voting records are ever made public, but I could give you the names and e-mail addresses of many, many people who have known me, the past thirty years. That's the part that has floored me, about the "new right" -- namely, how little interest in facts there is (just a narrative that must make the facts fit the perception.) I would think that your first response should have been, "OK, what happened?" And, in a word, the answer is that my personal belief is that the true Reagan Republicans are the folks that this "new right" calls "RINO's" (Republicans In Name, Only). Reagan tolerated the social wing (as part of his governing coalition), but certainly wasn't one of them (as an economic conservative). The only difference between me -- and, say, a Colin Powell (who was told by Sen John Thune and former VP Dick Cheney that he wasn't really a Republican) -- is that I said "OK, bye-bye (if that is the way you are going to think and act, then count me 'out'.)"

[-] -2 points by Carlitini99 (-167) 2 years ago

i just don't believe that you could support the democrats. you sound like a plant. a real christian supporting democrats? come on, they are the most anti-christian party around.

[-] 2 points by MichaelBlack17 (40) 2 years ago

You're partly right. The Democrats DO oppose so much of what the Christian Coalition is about. But, generalizing, a little; there are a lot of Black Christians in the Democratic Party. And, of course, in excess of 95% of Blacks voting in 2008 voted for Obama, not McCain. And, in the primaries, the percentage of Blacks voting doubled, sinking Hillary. So, it's not so much that Democrats oppose, or even hate, Christianity -- they hate the Tea Party Christianity, that thinks it has some papal lock on faith and understanding. Take health care: I am writing you, from Taiwan -- a place that has a single-payer, government-run health system. Private insurance companies are illegal. Of course, in the US, that would be considered "Communism". But, these people are the world's most anti-Communist (with 2,000 Communist missiles pointed their way). I injured, and reinjured, my back -- and, it cost me $US 150 to go through all the specialists and rehab (half that cost being just for the Cat-Scan.) I hope this doesn't get out, because it is not public knowledge, over here, yet, but my wife (nearly exactly Breitbart's age) may, well, have cancer (we're hoping it is, still, just in the nose, ears and throat, and not spread to the brain). But, the worst that could happen, financially -- namely, long term care, followed by her passing -- would cost a few thousand dollars (US) out of pocket. What could be un-Christian, or anti-Christian, about wanting that for our families, and every one of our countrymen's families?

[-] -2 points by Carlitini99 (-167) 2 years ago

taiwan is a smaller country w/o free loading illegals running around. Of course blacks voted for Obama, Obama is black and a democrat. blacks always have voted democrat before the democrat party went nuts and anti religion.

From what I read about Hoffman he was a drug addict,protester,social unrest provocateur and much more of course but,why would I offer condolences for Hoffman?.....and why are you trying to make a comparison between Breitbart and Hoffman?

Breitbart was a talented,responsible,impassioned patriot who actually did accomplish positive things in his life.

Not real a comparison can be made between these two people. So I guess you won't be writing your condolences for Breitbart after all, BFD.

[-] 1 points by GypsyKing (8719) 2 years ago

You don't know a real patriot from a sold-out neo-con-man, sorry. But I'll say I'm sorry he's dead anyway, because we're all just human, and we are all flawed. In the end we really all have more in common than we may believe.

[-] -2 points by nytefury (-57) 2 years ago

" In the end we really all have more in common than we may believe."

That is something we all can agree on.

[-] 4 points by GypsyKing (8719) 2 years ago

Thanks. I HATE the divide that has grown between Americans. I wish you would actually look at the conviction and courage of Abbey Hoffman. He believed in radical freedom. In many ways he was not far from a liberatarian, but he was highly educated, and had, I believe, a deeper understanding of the complexity of the problems we have to confront together.

I essentially agree with liberatarians in their aims, I have always just felt their soultions are overly simplistic to address the complexities of the modern world. But the truth is that under it all we are all human and are all groping towards solutions in our own ways; and so we should not be at each others throats the way we are.

That is no way for us to come together and save this country. So I will say it again - even though I didn't agree with his politics, I am sorry he is gone,and I am sorry for his family, because we must all pass through the valley of the shadow of death, together.

It's sad that his family lost him (but then again I have to wonder what kind of husband and father he was when he spent his entire life spewing hate and filth, and has been known to have substance abuse issues), and Weiner was ten kinds of an idiot for doing what he did. You could even say in some ways getting nailed by someone as low as Breitbart served him right and I wouldn't argue much. I'll even give you that it's a bit easier not to want to strangle him now that he's done for good.

That said, the fact that he's no longer our problem doesn't excuse the damage he did when he was our problem, and neither I nor many others are going to forgive him for that simply because he's dead. He's still the guy who cost Shirley Sherrod her job over a deliberately mis-edited video. He's still the guy that one that gloated and hurled insults and told Chappaquiddick one-liners all over Twitter the day Ted Kennedy died. He's still the guy who got away with showing an artfully cut propaganda film implying that ACORN was a den of whores and child traffickers to a judge and pretty much destroyed them. None of that damage has magically been undone or healed simply because he took his bile off this plane of existence.

Dead or alive, Andrew Breitbart has a hell of a lot to answer for, and the fact that the attacks and character assassinations have stopped (albeit involuntarily) is nowhere near enough to earn him forgiveness. I have better things to do with my time than piss on his grave, but don't expect me to be sorry he's gone.

The guy's dead, and that does not make you stop to reflect for one moment, but simply, blindly - you go on spewing nothing but pointless hatred. How unutterably sad. Have you know capacity for spiritual reflection at all? I don't know what drives people like you, but I do know that their lives always end in sadness and alienation. There is no other outcome for such spiritual poverty. If for one moment you sensed the yawning void that is opening before you, you would be seized by horror, terror and unfathomable remorse.

What are you talking about? The post you just replied to was a sarcastic response to francis who is spouting the same old tired rhetoric about Reps are no different than Dems.

There was no hatred meant by my reply to francis merely demonstrating the absurdity of his point by being absurd.

I have reflected on this death of Breitbart along with all the other family members I've lost in the last few years.

So I don't know how you came to this conclusion that you just posted,I don't believe I've given you or anybody else any reason to think otherwise.

Sometimes sarcasm has to be sifted through for awhile before a real understanding can be made. I'm guilty of misunderstanding a few posts simply because I knee jerked and didn't fully digest the context.

[-] -1 points by nytefury (-57) 2 years ago

You would have some veracity,but your reply is only Leftist propaganda opinion,not facts.

"He contributed nothing."

Over the past several years, Breitbart has built up a reputation as an unrelenting conservative warrior. Many have described him as fearless for his undeterred effort to question and criticize many on the left. He was never afraid of taking on his political opponents or entering into unfriendly territory to make his points about the validity and importance of conservatism.

In launching a series of “Big” sites, Breitbart took the offensive in the political battle of ideas. The list of websites he helped establish include “Big Government,” “Big Journalism” and “Big Hollywood.” For over the past two years, I have felt privileged and honored to serve as a contributor to the latter. Earlier in his career, Breitbart also helped launch “The Huffington Post” and he served as an integral part in the success of “The Drudge Report.”

In an unusual but thoughtful move, Matt Drudge-- the editor of "The Drudge Report-- released a short statement yesterday praising Breitbart. He wrote, “In the first decade of the DRUDGEREPORT Andrew Breitbart was a constant source of energy, passion and commitment. We shared a love of headlines, a love of the news, an excitement about what's happening.”

Author: Righteous Indignation

In RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION, Breitbart talks about the key issues that Americans face, how he has aligned himself with the Tea Party, and how one needs to deal with the liberal news world head on. Along the way, he details his early years, working with Matt Drudge, the Huffington Post, and so on, and how Breitbart developed his unique style of launching key websites to help get the word out to conservatives all over.A rollicking and controversial read, Breitbart will certainly raise your blood pressure, one way or another.

How Andrew Breitbart Advanced the Cause Diane Ellis, Ed.

I'll kick us off with the things that stood out to me in reading through Ricochet's large collection of Breitbart tributes and remembrances:

  1. As Ben Domenech noted a few months ago, conservatives really lag in the arena of investigative journalism. Andrew Breitbart did more to expose the stories that the rest of the media either conveniently ignored or even worked hard to keep under wraps than anyone else.

In the process, he: exposed Anthony Weiner's lies, ultimately driving him out of office which paved the way for a Republican to assume office in NY-9 for the first time since 1923; drove ACORN into extinction.

  1. He built up a whole lot of invaluable internet infrastructure that has proven to be an important set of resources for the right. From Breitbart.com to Big Government, Big Hollywood, Big Journalism, Big Peace, and with an assist to the Drudge Report.

But to be sure that Conor has a thorough list of the things that conservatives consider to be Andrew's biggest professional achievements, I put the query to the Ricochet community.

http://ricochet.com/main-feed/How-Andrew-Breitbart-Advanced-the-Cause

That's a REAL short list,but I'm sure that won't influence you. Breitbart,regardless of Leftist bullshit lies was a phenomenal Conservative activist. You as a Leftist activist should at least recognize and praise him for that aspect of his life.

I accepted Christ into my life, a bit over 40 years ago. And, I voted straight Republican (as well as registered as one), for most of that time. But, to see the right degrade into this has been a shocking experience; so, I have taken my continuing faith, continued to care for other people, and started to fight the racism that has overtaken my former stomping grounds.

[-] 3 points by XenuLives (1645) from Charlotte, NC 2 years ago

LOL, you have some twisted views of what "liberal" means:

No one is advocating for free college, just affordable college so that everyone has a shot at a good future (caring about other people)

No one wants open borders. I want a fence and a bunch of people hired to protect both of our borders, north and south. I also want people to be able to become citizens and join our country as productive members of society without having to go through a 7+ year process to get a green card. tl;dr keep the drugs and gangs out with better policing (from Canada and Mexico) and help those with real value to offer America to get in legitimately.

No one wants to give free healthcare or welfare to illegal immigrants either. To US citizens, yes, I want the government to use its money on its citizens instead of on more weapons to bomb people on the other side of the world.

Sensitivity training: Only the pro-hate party thinks that its not important to be nice to each other.

Ballots in multiple languages. Google translate and print on demand? Why not have ballots that everyone can understand? Its would be discriminatory to not allow people to cast their votes due to a language issue.

Yes, I want the financial sharks to pay for sharking people into loans that they couldn't pay. Fraud is fraud. They need to be punished.

Unions, yes. Again, helping people live better lives by fighting for higher wages sounds way better than siding with the guy who has 5 Bentleys already.

No, not blaming the US for everything, but taking responsibility for when we ARE to blame. That's what a responsible person does, admits mistakes and takes steps to correct them.

I don't "love" any religion, but I'm not going to start burning Korans and expect to just tell people to "deal with it." If the conservatives had their way we would already be bombing them and shuttling the gays and muslims to special camps...

The conservatives use their fiction book filled with fantasy stories as a vehicle for HATE. They hate gay people. Hate muslims (or anyone that doesn't believe in their fiction.) Hate women (you keep trying to take reproductive rights away from them.) Hate poor people (you keep trying to take away welfare, food stamps.) The only people that you don't HATE are rich, middle-aged Christian white men.

Take your HATE, and shove it where the sun doesn't shine!

"Media trailblazer Andrew Breitbart, who single-handedly declared war on the establishment left and won numerous political battles, unexpectedly died this early morning in his Los Angeles home aged 43.

Breitbart’s untimely death has shocked the media world and left some to question whether or not damning footage of Obama in his youth, which Breitbart announced he had obtained only last month, will still be released.

According to some observers, the footage threatened to sink Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign."
