Skip to comments.Palin: Breitbart Is Here
Posted on 03/15/2012 7:36:35 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
There is a new street art poster thats being emailed around and will no doubt eventually be spotted on a street corner near you. Its a gritty black and white image of Andrew Breitbart looking both battle-worn and ever vigilant with the caption: BREITBART IS HERE.
Those three words express the instant connection many of us feel for our fallen friend. They express our identification with him, and our need to continue his fight for the good of our republic.
With the death of Breitbart, the conservative movement didnt just lose a General we lost an entire Special Forces Division. But he didnt leave us without the tools and the knowledge we need to fight. This website Breitbart 2.0 is the culmination of his study of the technology and aesthetics of new media. The team Breitbart assembled under the leadership of Steve Bannon, Larry Solov, and Joel Pollak will advance his mission with courage and integrity.
Breitbarts most immediate mission was the belated vetting of Barack Obama. This obviously is an issue very near and dear to my heart.
During the 08 campaign, the same media that reported breathlessly about an old used tanning bed I purchased to get some sun during the dark Alaskan winter, couldnt be bothered to investigate Barack Obamas associations, statements or even his voting record as a state senator. Suntans and what I wore on the campaign trail were more important than Obamas political background. Unbelievable.
But when you come to think of it, the media didnt investigate either of our actual political records very closely.
Barack Obama and I both served in political office in states with a serious corruption problem.

Yeah. I ordered a t-shirt with it on it and i’m *still* waiting on it!
I got my ‘Breitbart Is Here’ t shirt today. Very nice.
I wouldn’t consider Breitbart a “friend”. But I sought advise from him and he was most cordial and helpful. I was a wreck the day he died because I knew he cared..
This is why Sarah Palin is a great leader and a great person.
This is the reason I changed my tagline after March 1st.
You get it FRiend.
Just posted the picture on Facebook. I met him once at a Tucson Tea Party event and got his book signed...I’m still heartbroken about the incredible loss of this great patriot.
‘....Im still heartbroken about the incredible loss of this great patriot.’
I feel the same. I, too, was privileged to meet him last year at Presidency V in Orlando; I’m so glad I had that opportunity.
Got it. Thanks!
Sarah Palin is sooooooo underestimated. She’s smart as a whip.
Always good to “see” you, ‘pod.
What a beautiful tribute, thank you Sarah..Sarah knows more then anyone what Andrew had to deal with, the constant death threats, the left wing attacks..I still, even after all these weeks have passed, can’t believe that Andrew is gone. He was our warrior, fighting everyday til the end. God Bless both Andrew and Sarah, fighting the good fight!
Very thoughtful and appropriate.
Thanks for this post. Just ordered T-shirts.
God Bless them both, Sarah and Andrew
Right and Right!
we could start a “Breitbart was here” meme.
God Bless Sarah Palin for writing this wonderful article and tribute to Andrew Breitbart!
when Sarah said on FOX she voted for Newt in Alaska....my tagger was born
Facebook post: Sarah Palin
Talk is cheap Sarah, really cheap. Where were you and your voice when Romney was destroying Mr. Newt? Where were you when we called for your help and your voice to stand behind the most brilliant man in this race? You have voiced your support in little ways, but never with a full endorsement. Where is your courage? We all understood when you did not jump into the race for WE THE PEOPLE because your family came first. We understand your hesitancy in doing the right thing because of what the media will say and do, and how it would affect your family. Well, they are continuing to destroy you anyway, you might as well jump head first into the fight.
WE THE PEOPLE know that our country will not survive with Obama as our president for four more years. Romney is a fine man, but part of the same Republican establishment you have been fighting for years (look at his supporters). Santorum was part of that same Republican establishment for all the years he was in the Senate, and his “so called” conservative voting record tells us all we need to know about how he will lead the country. He even endorsed Romney against McCain. How will he cut the very programs that gave us the economy we have now, thanks in no part, to the current Republican establishment.
Mr. Newt is the only candidate left in this race that loves this country as much as you do, and can save it through his bold energy plan, his new 21st Century Contract With America, along with his plans to cut spending, cut government, and clean up the financial mess that this President and the Republican establishment (McCain included) go us into. Breitbart stood up for you, when not one of those Republican eunuchs would, remember? You say you can influence the country with your words without a title.
Brietbart was fearless at a time when too many people are afraid and are retreating. Courage inspires courage. Fearlessness emboldens others to follow your lead. Did you mean those words? If so, it is time you showed the same courage and come out of the shadows and fight for Mr. Newt. NOW is the time, or we will suffer through four more years of the hell that this President is creating.
Beautiful - thanks for posting.
What is the url ?
I want to buy BB t-shirt.
Wow. Good clip.
Andrew Breitbart is the new Che!
A tee shirt like that I will have to get just to piss off a liberal.
That's because they're no longer watchdogs. Rather, they've become Obama's lapdogs.
So many coincidences especially the fact that ndaa went into effect at midnight and he was dead within the hour.
A better one would be—”I am Breitbart” in reference to Sparticus.
When one falls, a dozen will spring up to fill the gap.
Freepers into a little graffiti could ink in ‘ Breitbart was here’ or ‘ Breitbart is here...’
He's our first martyr...
During the 08 campaign, the same media that reported breathlessly about an old used tanning bed I purchased to get some sun during the dark Alaskan winter, couldnt be bothered to investigate Barack Obamas associations, statements or even his voting record as a state senator.
I hope someone can get this link to Sarah - it shows how the New York Times worked FOR Obama. Its undercover tape of journalists connected to the New York Times - talking with other elites.
They are unaware a conservative is in the room.
Crescendos are natural, inevitable: witness birds, cicadas, crickets singing in pure concerto when the time is right for them to do so.
We’ll sing and vote with the same tsunami voice as 2010 when appropriate. We are not manufactured ACORN voters who jump when the electrodes are applied.
Slow and easy does it.
“Hey Lefties. FEAR BREITBART’S REVENGE”
Great tagline, exit82...
I was fortunate enough to meet Breitbart about a year ago and have a brief conversation with him. He was incredibly warm and gracious. Upon learning of his death, I resolved to never again sit silently when my liberal friends spew their vile and contemptible hatred for those with differing opinions. That includes the stupid Republican-bashing Facebook statuses that are so prevalent among my acquaintances. I shall never again let those go by without comment from me.
That t-shirt would be a lot better if it simply said, “War”.
He was a genius at new media, but his real gift was that he was fearless at a time when too many people are afraid and are retreating. Courage inspires courage. Fearlessness emboldens others to follow your lead.
Lately conservatives are picking up the mantle from Breitbarts absence on the air and in places like Twitter. Watch for tweet jousts with liberal outlets like the weird and creepy Media Matters and re-tweets of leftwing hate using the Twitter hashtag #IAmAndrewBreitbart as the battle cry.
Soon well see others imitating Breitbarts gift for disbanding leftwing protests by simply asking the rent-a-mob, Hey, what are you protesting?
Oh, yeah. Brietbart is HERE!
Great article by Sarah.
Two like-minded, brave individuals.
Both have my utmost admiration.
Thank you, nutmeg.
Not was, is.
