Patterico's Pontifications


Andrew Breitbart: A Sad Anniversary

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:53 pm

It’s been five years since Andrew Breitbart died. Thanks to Colonel Haiku for the (sad) reminder. I think he would have enjoyed the politics of today, and I would have enjoyed seeing what he had to say about it.

  1. Sad ding.

  2. I very much miss this guy. I first saw him on the old Dennis Miller Show on CNBC and enjoyed his take on the issues of the day. And I’ll never forget that Weiner news conference he took control over, talk about seizing the moment! And Patterico’s key role in exposing – pun intended – that sordid business.

    The morning I heard of his passing the previous night, it felt like a sucker punch. He had so much more to offer, so much more life to live. What an insightful fellow he was.

  4. I found out that he had died from a text from Dustin.

    The press conference was one of the great moments, ever.

  5. He was a great American.

    I can’t help but think he would be reveling in, and exploiting, the Left’s derangement since DJT won.

  6. I miss the guy. I was one of the last guys Andrew communicated with, as he did his thing on twitter. For such a big fish he sure liked to swim with the little guy.

    I remember texting Patterico because I knew how much Breitbart meant to him. A real leader for the good fight.

  7. I miss him.

    I don’t know what it is, but I’m sure there’s so much more he would have showed us.

    And he would have had fun doing it.

  8. True conservatives seem to die around elections.

  9. Breitbart was a solid voice in the wilderness and understood how to combat the left. Being genteel while the left is slinging lies will never succeed. Speak loudly, bring attention to yourself and your cause, be passionate about what you believe and fight.

    If someone tries to slander you or divide you from your allies. Respond appropriately.

  10. The sudden and untimely death of Andrew Breitbart puts him in the strange company of Anton Scalia and Vince Foster. The peculiar timing, the bizarre circumstances, the unseemly rush to exclude the possibility of politically motivated murder all combine to call for an open and honest investigation.

    Till then Andrew’s restless shade wanders the streets of LA alone and raging at his undeserved fate, and at his fairweather friends quick to pay lip service to his life but much too slow to acknowledge the dark and deeply troubling events surrounding his overly convenient demise.

  11. Thanks, Patterico, for remembering this anniversary. Never knew him, but still, I really miss him. A very brave, intelligent and inspiring man. Because of him, am more mouthy in real life in political discussions, and less shy when politics comes up about criticizing the lies, slanders and ridiculousness of far-left liberals and of the media. Especially the media.
