Andrew Breitbart's final message to the left
Mpls Star Tribune ^ | 3/2/12 | STAR PARKER

Posted on 03/03/2012 5:04:57 AM PST by rhema

If you think about it, Andrew Breitbart's untimely passing from this life, at age 43, might be seen as the ultimate message that this man of media could deliver.

Breitbart famously used his media talent, particularly his facility with new media and new journalism, to fight the agenda of the left.

And what could strike more effectively at the heart of the left's premises than the inscrutable death of a young and prodigiously talented, successful man -- a husband and father to four young children -- who still was scaling the heights of achievement?

The inconceivable and unanticipated are the rule of our lives, rather than the exception. Nothing more clearly delineates the political left from the political right than appreciation of this fact.

The left, after all, is about the pretense of planning, power and control. It's about the belief that man -- political man -- can define and control the world and can appoint himself the final authority to determine what is fair and then mete out justice.

The first words on this subject were spoken by the serpent to Eve about the prohibition on eating fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

"You will not surely die," the serpent told Eve, "for God knows that on the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

In his new book, "Coming Apart," social scientist Charles Murray provides a troubling snapshot of America, showing how the collapse of traditional values corresponds with our growing economic and achievement problems.

Murray quotes a 19th-century European immigrant to America, Francis Grund, who anticipated exactly what is happening today:

"Change the domestic habits of Americans, their religious devotion, and their high respect for morality, and it will not

The left hated Breitbart for his effectiveness in getting out the truth.

It's the same culture that forces me to get police protection to talk about personal responsibility on college campuses.

The final irony is that truth and compassion come from humility, not pride. Sadly, a cold and cruel left will not grasp this truth from Breitbart's unexpected death.

Hopefully Breitbart’s last message will be these tapes he talked of releasing ... scheduled for the day he died, oddly enough.

I think the left *feared* Breitbart, as much as they hated him.

"The Left does not win its battles in debate. It doesn't have to. In the twenty-first century, media is everything. The Left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The Left is the media. Narrative is everything. I call it the Democrat-Media Complex -- and I am at war to gain back control of the American narrative."

His drive, fearlessness, passion, energy, zeal and conviction are irreplaceable. Rush, I believe, to respect the memory of Breitbart and to show he himself would carry the Bretbart-torch got embroiled in this Fluke flap.

We lost one hero, the other day; I pray that loss gives birth to a million more like him.

People keep saying that...

I dont think they tapes were supposed to be released on March 1.

Any comments he made about March 1 refer to Sherrif Joe’s investigation/presser, correct?

Good. The Democrat Propaganda Ministry is captioning Ms. Fluke as a "Women's Rights Activist." The more that regular people learn about her, the more they will agree with Rush that she's a promiscuous, exhibitionist skank whose agenda is purely ideological, not financial.

Alex Jones (I know) is linking to another site where that claim is made. Either way, this YouTube video needs to go viral.

BTW, the link to i-w is off Drudge. That’s what took me there via

DRUDGE: AB: ‘Wait til they see what happens March 1st’...

Speaking to Lawrence Sinclair of Sinclair News, Breitbart stated, “Wait til they see what happens March 1st.”

Wow! Those posts by folks from the left are disgusting. I hope that when some figure on the left like Michael Moore passes that conservatives don’t fill the net with such vitriol. And they accuse Breitbart of ‘hate’.

“Andrew Breitbart’s final message to the left”

Could it be “Live Free or Die”(trying)?

I’ve seen those vague references...

Steve Bannon referred to these as “Obama Harvard Tapes” - so, I think this is going to be pretty limited - not his whole college career. Some of this stuff is already online in some form.

I cant imagine AB would pick the same day as Sherrif Joe’s well publicized presser to make his revelation...especially when AB was not really in the birther camp(correct me if Im wrong here)

Amazing that the Red Star ran this article. Reading comments on the link is more informative about the reasoning mechanisms of the left than any 1,000 word piece. Even worse, the snarky little thumb up/down poll after each comment makes the state of affairs even more clear - the barbarians aren’t at the gate; they’re in the keep.

I’m not aware of any link between the Breitbart release date and Sheriff Joe. I didn’t see that in the video anywhere.

The day he died was the Anniversary of the Weathermen’s bombing of the Capital.
Odd to me.
Did Ayer’s leave his calling card?

March 1, 1971

A bomb explodes in the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., causing an estimated $300,000 in damage but hurting no one. A group calling itself the “Weather Underground” claimed credit for the bombing, which was done in protest of the ongoing U.S.-supported Laos invasion.

Who saw Andrew fall?
Was there someone who walked by him moments before he fell?
Could someone knowing he had a bad heart, zapped him to give him a heart attack?
Will we ever know?

Those comments sum up the political environment around Minneapolis. Thus I turn my back on that place.

Rush has the audience, broad shoulders and the platform. God Bless him and those who will stand up to *Democrat Propaganda*. Ms. Fluke looks like a fool and just got a lesson into what it’s like to play with the big-dogs.

Whomever invited her to speak to the committee hearing, sure showed their hand.

Hopefully Rush will have this additional information for Monday, that Ms. Fluke is not an ordinary promiscuous college twat, but a professional agitator whose sole reason for enrolling at Georgetown was to try to have that once-Catholic institution forced to hand out contraceptives.

“Law Students for Reproductive Justice”...I just glanced over their website and still don’t know what *reproductive justice* is. Heh.

I do know that they are very against *criminalizing abortion*. Well, what is it, but murder? These people are so warped.

I think “reproductive justice” means that whatever choices they make regarding reproducing or not reproducing, someone else will pay for everything. If they don’t want to have children, then contraceptives and abortion must be provided at no cost and no inconvenience to them. If they do want to have children, then they will do so at no cost to themselves, and with no interference from the sperm donor, whether he was present at the time of conception or not, and the costs of rearing the child will be borne by the public, not by themselves.

Cool, it’s like naming one’s own reality and Critical Race Theory..it means whatever I say it means. Thanks for the explanation...now we can expect more radical multiculturalists like Ms. Fluke running around shoving their deconstructionism tripe down our gullets. Next she’ll be telling us that she is a victim of decades/centuries of phallogocentric thinking.

That is a flaw, but I still love her for divorcing herself so far from the Dim party...

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: If these people want “reproductive justice” I’m sure there are lots of folks who would volunteer their money to have them all sterilized. I would, but only if it is irreversible.

“Activists” like this usually don’t want sterilization, no matter who’s paying, because their egos might call for a mini-me at some point in the future. “Justice” is having what they want when they want it, not limiting their options.

Oh I totally understand that. But I still vote for sterilization for the left. Without anesthesia.

Thumbs up! There just ain't no reasoning with them. Not even God can help them. I don't doubt the powers of the Almighty, He has no limits, but we are also given free will and they choose not to listen and understand. I am convinced that there will be a point in time, well, frankly, where it will be us or them and we will have to make that choice.

I had the same impression. Rush spent the better part of two days on this subject, to the point that he repeated himself a few times, and it struck me as very unusual. That's when I thought of Breitbart.

Quoth Andrew, "For the rest of my life, I don't know how I can repay him."

As lives go, that's a vast overpayment.

"These people live the life of the one percent. This was the greatest one-percent dinner I've ever been to."

Star Parker, Tammy Bruce, Andrew Breitbart ... there is nothing the left both fears and despises more than a person who was once one of them.
