Citizen Andrew Breitbart (February 1, 1969 – March 1, 2012)

Who can take his place?

I respectfully step forward and state:

"I am Andrew Breitbart"

Who will join me?

RIP, General.

Irreplaceable. We've lost our power forward, our blocking back, our hockey mucker, our headhunting fastballer who owns the plate.

"Natural causes". . .

What natural causes were they? Andrew Breitbart was a serious threat to the "Administration".

I will miss Andrew Breitbart. He was a true warrior in the pursuit of truth and an American patriot.

Please, connect the dots. He was MURDERED.

Watch this video:

This was the man who spoke out BRAVELY against the radical obama.

Even if you are liberal, democrat it doesn't matter --


Brietbart "died unexpectedly of natural causes" at 43?!?!? Are you KIDDING ME?!?!

If you don't stand up for this NOW they will be coming for us ALL later

Please, spread the word.

Cry, the beloved commentator.

That is a big loss.

"...rushed him to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center..."

Appropriate, indeed.

In my time of dying,
Want nobody to mourn
All I want, for you to do,
Is take my body home

Saw a comment somewhere else in which someone said that maybe God was having trouble with Satan and needed another warrior. Well, now he's got one.

My heart goes out to his wife and kids.

God Bless Andrew. You will be missed greatly.

Of all the people to lose right now.

As for why: the civilized side of my brain accepts "natural causes". But behind that, the caveman brain is saying "Him taunt jackals. Now him dead."

If and when other journalists who dare to investigate and report on the kleptocrats ruling us, there may be more natural deaths, methinks.

Homicide poisoning looks like heart problems:

...and this is interesting:

Bretibart's father-in-law, Orson Bean, was blacklisted back in the 50's a well-known communist sympathizer.

Wikipedia has quoted him as saying, "My children are all little communists."

Breitbart used to be a liberal.

AB had the knack - no, the singular gift - of asking questions and adding commentary to absolutely nail leftists to the wall. I know of no one who has the same, essential talent that Breitbart had as a public figure.

We are now less safe as a republic than we were a day ago.

My condolences to the family and friends of this great, great American citizen.

Andrew is the model for what conservatives must become. Go on offense. Get in their face and punch back twice as hard.

Being nice gets you a trip to the gulag. There will be time to be nice when the commie-libs are defeated. This is not the time to be nice.

God Bless Andrew.

He changed the conservative movement; we'll never be the same shrinking violets post-Breitbart. What he did was too much for one normal man but together we can help carry on his legacy. Even though he was a fierce warrior it was easy to tell at heart he was a genuine and loving man. What a massive loss.

Posted by Brett_McS at March 1, 2012 12:16 PM

He was legend in life and will be even more so in death.

I posted over at Ace's this morning...
"You know, Ahmad Shah Masooud was the Lion of Panjshir, and when AQ assassinated him, it was a huge blow to the future of Afghanistan.
We just lost the Lion of the Pajamasphere."
Fight on.

I shall miss him indeed. A true hero.

So what can we do now to honor his life?

Posted by Grizzly at March 1, 2012 3:37 PM

Damn, Shit, Fuck, MotherFucker.. fuck. fuck fuck


God Bless and keep you Andrew, My heart goes out to his family.

I am dubious at best as to "natural causes" but it does happen..

Posted by Bill Henry at March 1, 2012 3:43 PM

Our domestic enemies have a long history of people who oppose them dying accidentally. Look back to the Clinton regime for an easy confirmation..I'm too experienced to believe this is an accident or coincidence.. this is a hit.

Woodward and Bernstein inspired a generation of young journalists. If Breitbart serves as an inspiration to the next generation, we'll be in good shape. We need a thousand Breitbarts now.

I'm not ready to jump to a conspiracy conclusion just yet. Let's wait for the coroner's report. People sometimes do drop dead suddenly without warning. It happens.

Posted by rickl at March 1, 2012 5:08 PM

"AB had the knack - no, the singular gift - of asking questions and adding commentary to absolutely nail leftists to the wall."

Because he was raised right in the middle of Babylon - a.k.a., L.A. He knew those people and their attitudes like every single inch of his body. Thus, when he awakened, he knew the way to fight back: using their very own weapons against them.

He used every single one of them, and scored some serious wins in our favor.

That is why he will be missed.

Vote Obama the fuck out.

Then, jail him.

Posted by ahem at March 1, 2012 8:51 PM

the proper way to commemorate this martyr is for all of us to find our inner Andrew Breitbart, and soon, and ferociously.

Posted by etranger at March 1, 2012 11:23 PM

Uncle Jefe, well said.

I suggest each of us honor Andrew by starting an argument with the next liberal we notice. Become your own Andrew Breitbart.

Please watch his 2012 CPAC speech on YouTube.

Posted by Scott M at March 2, 2012 2:13 AM

I want to join JD and state

"I am Andrew Breitbart"

They can't defeat us all and they won't hate you one ounce more just because you fight them. The commie-libs hate you to their utmost capacity even while you are meek and mild, or maybe BECAUSE you are meek and mild.

Posted by Scott M at March 2, 2012 2:16 AM

RealAmerican, here's what Breitbart himself has to say about his father-in-law. If you want to be worthy of Breitbart, get out of your goddamn box.
