March 1, 2012 we lost Andrew Breitbart. I say “lost,” but “taken from us” might be more accurate. I don’t believe we really know the facts and I will always doubt the heart attack scenario.
What makes me suspicious? Oh, the Chicago Way, which is to take down your enemies in any way necessary. The brutality and obsession of both Obama and the people behind him to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” The fact that the information Breitbart said he had, information that would change the election, never came out. I believe Breitbart knew something and after his death his staff was too intimidated to release it.
Believe what you like, however. The truth is that Andrew Breitbart was a hero to the Right and a thorn to the Left. He knew what he was doing and that made him dangerous.
Joel Pollack at Breitbart.com remembers what happened a few days before Breitbart’s death:
Andrew gathered the editorial team in the center of our former office, a giant warehouse space with a row of desks above overlooking a recreation area below. We were just a few days from the re-launch of the website.
Most of the editorial staff, scattered around the country, had flown to LA for a week of intense training in the new technology that would power the website. While we learned, we still had to work, putting up posts and videos.
To the muffled sound of typing, Andrew began his pep talk.
The re-launch was the culmination of months of intense work, hundreds of design meetings and long conference calls, he said. The new website meant a new mission. We would no longer solely be a set of blogs. We were going to focus our energy on driving narratives and leading the news cycle, constantly.
But the news we covered would not be the same news everyone else was watching, he said. Andrew grew more animated as he described what he meant. He emphasized, for example, how radical fringes of the left were providing some of the most important content to the mainstream media, and how mainstream political and entertainment figures were driving that process by encouraging the radicals.
The Occupy Wall Street movement and the Anonymous hackers, Andrew said, had been extremely important in creating the 99%-vs.-1% meme that the Obama team had embraced, and which they and encouraged to set a trap for likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney (yes, he was saying it long before the rest of the country realized it). But the connections between Occupy, Anonymous and the media were even more direct.
Tracing those connections, Andrew said, was one of the many important investigative projects that needed to be done–and that the mainstream media would not do. As far as he was concerned, he said, that was the news. It explained how radical ideas that had circulated in remote corners of the Internet would pass through outlets like Current TV and MSNBC and eventually find their way to the headlines of the local nightly news bulletin.

How right he was! The 47% comment by Romney played into the 99% Barack Obama used to get reelected. Gore’s Current TV has become an outlet for pro shariah Al Jazeera. NBC has hired David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs. Does anyone think they will refrain from pushing the Obama agenda instead of fair journalistic practices? NBC and MSNBC are 24 hour pro Obama propaganda units.
The Right has already forgotten a lot of what Breitbart preached. He would never lose heart, but tell us to continue the fight.
How right he was!
