Andrew Breitbart Passes Away

Thursday, March 1, 2012

Andrew Breitbart, a strong voice for the conservative movement, passed away early this morning. He has been on the front lines fighting against crony capitalism, exposing ACORN, and battling the radical left. He exposed the Anthony Weiner sex scandal, which led to Weiner's stepping down from Congress. Breitbart has been a relentless defender of Governor Palin and worked hard to set the record straight and call out the lies. In fact, he was working closely with Steve Bannon, director of The Undefeated, the documentary about the Governor's career in Alaska.

Via one of his websites, Breitbart TV:

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.
