I’ve just seen the news and, to say the least, I’m shocked. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. Apparently Breitbart collapsed outside his home last night and was rushed to UCLA, where he died.
Andrew’s death is also a great loss for the Right and the cause of liberty in this country. I had never met him, but I’d come to admire his work exposing the hypocrisy of the liberal-left and the pernicious effect of the Left’s hold over our culture. Most of all, I admired his fearlessness and willingness to fight back. His value to the Tea Party movement is almost incalculable. Sometimes he might go a bit too far or over the top, but often –far more often than not– he and the exposes his sites published were right on the mark. Their influence over the last few years has been enormous. Just ask ACORN.
You were and are inspirational, Andrew. Rest in peace.
UPDATE: And if you ever wanted an example of the immaturity, churlishness, and flat-out rot that lurks in the heart of the American Left, here ya go.
