Condolences to his family and friends.
Joshua Trevino made an excellent observation:
Of course, the left is responding in their typical “new civility”, open minded and tolerant fashion.
Yup, cheering the death of someone who dared to disagree with them. Color me not surprised.
The Texas Public Policy Foundation shows more class than your typical leftist.
“The passing of Andrew Breitbart is a cause for much sorrow – but the life of Andrew Breitbart was a cause for much joy. Every defender of liberty takes heart in his accomplishments, and now in his legacy. He reminded us of things that should never be forgotten: that the truth has more power than the lie, that freedom defeats oppression, and that we must fight for both every waking day. He was a genius of the communicative art, and a pioneer in the marriage of new media to enduring principle. We walk in his footsteps, and our only regret is that we can no longer stand in his shadow.
“The Communications team of the Texas Public Policy Foundation bids farewell to Andrew Breitbart: this happy warrior, this American.”
If you haven’t read his book, Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World yet, pick up and do so. It was one of my book picks from last year.
Andrew Breitbart tells the story of his transformation from clueless college student majoring in (anti-)American Studies to a warrior for the Constitution and for honesty in in reporting from the main stream media. He explains in detail about collaboration between theDNC and the Media Complex (which includes TV News, print magazines and the film industry) and how to use new media to combat them and win! In chapter 7, he lays out his game plan for fighting the left in details some of the highlights include: Don’t be afraid to go into enemy territory; Don’t let the Complex use its PC lexicon to characterize you and shape the narrative; Ubiquity is key; and Truth isn’t mean. It’s truth. Leftist will try to talk about “your truth” and “their truth”, which is bullshit. There is just the truth.
