Conservative warrior Andrew Breitbart dead at 43

This is shocking news.

Andrew Breitbart, the conservative power-house founder of news aggregation site, Breitbart.com, and five other websites (Breitbart.tv, Big Hollywood, Big Government, Big Journalism, and Big Peace), is dead, at the age of only 43.
Breitbart was behind investigations that exposed ACORN’s corruption and led to the resignations of disgraced N.Y. Congressman Anthony Weiner and former U.S. Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod.
Here’s the announcement on BreitbartTV:

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.


Conservatives have lost a fierce warrior. I weep….
But we’ll dry our eyes, pick ourselves up, and return to Helms Deep to fight the Orcs. That’s the best way to honor Andrew Breitbart.

UPDATE:

Breitbart’s father-in-law, the actor Orson Bean, said Breitbart was walking near his house in the Brentwood neighborhood shortly after midnight when he collapsed. He was rushed to the emergency room at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Breitbart had suffered heart problems a year earlier. Larry Dietz, watch commander at the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, said a cause of death was unknown and an autopsy was likely. [Source]

    I’m totally stunned! Do I accept the “natural causes” reason? Not sure. He publicly announced at CPAC that he had videos from Obama’s college years that would be released later during the campaign season. Also, through the aegis of the Daily Caller, he recently attended a dinner in the home of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. If there is the remotest possibility of foul play, I hope it’s not hushed up.

     
  2. I was shocked this morning when I heard that Andrew Breitbart had died. We have lost a true friend, and one of our best warriors against the lies and deceit in Washington and elsewhere. Do I believe he really died from natural causes? No. Our ideologicial enemy is not above anything. He’ll be missed and my heart goes out to his wife and four children.

     
  3. Unbelievable….just stunned. Such a loss 🙁

    I hope the Breitbart family demands an Autopsy; Andrew had announced he would release damning information about Soetoro just prior to the November election.

     
  5. …one of the first sites I bookmarked upon coming online…
    I’m shocked and saddened….and still processing the loss
    that this will be to the Patriot movement and my sincere
    condolence to his family….sigh 🙁

     
  6. I’m sitting here in total disbelief!! Shocked to say the least and extremely saddended. Like other commenters I pray to God his death is truely a natural one. But at 43? I intend to follow this story because I don’t put it past Obama to have had him permanently hushed up. Time will tell though. Andrew may have had a heart problem no one knew about. Regardless, what a LOSS! Pray for peace for his loving family and may he rest in peace. Thank you Andrew for speaking the truth. Farewell.

     
  7. A mighty Patriot has fallen, God rest his soul.
    As the left is now having a collective orgasm at the demise of Andrew Breitbart, it will be up to the rest of us to grab the reins and kept the Conservative movement on track and kick as many liberals out of office in November as possible, starting with Obama. It’s what Breitbart was fighting for, in other words:
    “Let’s win one for the Gipper!!!”

     
  8. totally shocked! what a great man we have lost. Immediately,where was he last night? who was he with? what had he been working on? I am wondering the same as LTG. Let’s hope other journalists will follow in his footsteps,Lord knows there are very few right now.

     
  9. I was shocked when I heard this on the radio news break this morning. Angry, too. It’s just too suspicious. From his speech at CPAC recently, he reported having major dirt on Obama. Probably a gay porn tape, or Obama marching with radicals. Of course it could be none of that and could be just as reported. He died. People die. It’s just frustrating as he exposed major corruption when the so-called mainstream media was silent. More frustrating that we’re at the point where we distrust and fear our government.
    I do, anyway.

     
  10. This was the last thing I expected to hear this morning.
    God speed, Andrew.
    You pissed off the right people, and that’s a good thing.
    -Dave

     
  11. Oh boy…lol Look at the crowd of tin foil hats. The guy was crazy so the world is now a little less crazy with his passing. Maybe you guys can now face a bit of reality without him corrupting your minds in the way that he did.
    Your cognitive dissonance is now back online. Use it wisely.

     
    • I see tolerant libs are out trolling, looking for any sites to bash Andrew.
      So his children are better off with him passing? Shame on you…

       
    • Gosh, evil Goldring (“One ring to rule them all”), aren’t you just a wonderful person to rejoice over the death of a man who committed no crime and no offense against you. When you die, no doubt there will be people who’ll dance a jig of joy. Meanwhile, why don’t you — a Canadian living in or near Vernon, B.C. — try minding your own business?

       
    • Be sure and get back to us in a few years and let us know how that Sharia law thingy is working out for you and your fellow residents of the Great White North.
      Assuming you still have your head, I mean.
      -Dave

       
    • You revolting canuck, if you lived a thousand lifetimes you would not amount to anything but toe jam on a great man like Andrew Breitbart

       
    • Dennis H. Bennett

      It is Goldmember’s cold heart that typifies so well the loss of the sanctity and value of human life as part of God’s creation. Nebuchadnezzar would be proud of this reptile.

       
  12. I was deeply saddened by Andrew Breitbart’s passing, when I heard the news this morning. He was in the forefront of Conservative activism and I have always admired him. Farewell brave warrior for truth, justice and the American way. My prayers go out for you and your loved ones…

     
  13. The left is ecstatic. They are even ecstatic because we are mourning. And they cannot even express their ecstasy in plain terms. No, they are guffawing, laughing, and hooting. They are vile.

     
  14. Vengeance belongs to the LORD.

     
  15. I’ve missed you, Terry. ♥
