Skip to comments.Andrew Breitbart’s Sweet, Sweet Victories

Somewhere, up there, Andrew Breitbart is celebrating. On September 10, 2013, the legendary gadfly whose huge heart gave out far too soon chalked up a three more big wins in his campaign to take America back from the hypocritical liberal snobs he despised.
In New York, a Democrat electorate soundly rejected Anthony Wieners creepy comeback bid. And in Colorado, an enraged citizenry defied everything the liberal establishment could throw at them and tossed out a pair of Democrat state senators who thought they could trample on the basic civil right to keep and bear arms. Neither victory would have been possible without Andrew.
Before Andrew came along, we all knew that Democrat politicians were feminists on the podium and leering letches everywhere else. Yet from Ted Kennedy leaving a young woman to drown to Bill Clinton soiling the Oval Office with the ghastly evidence of his out-of-control libido, Democrats got away with posturing as the protectors of womankind from the ravages of the misogynist GOP.
Without Andrew Breitbart, no one would have ever known about Anthony Weiners bizarre predilections except Huma Abedin. She understood perfectly that the role of a male Democrat politicians wife is to ignore her hubbys seedy abuse of individual women so he can focus on cultivating women as a collective Democrat constituent group. And if she kept quiet, maybe she could be a senator herself. It had happened before.
Andrew broke the silence, not only pushing the story of Weiners genital selfies but refusing to let the mainstream media rule the story beyond the pale and ignore it. Then Andrew commandeered Weiners own press conference, launching into a glorious tirade and growing from raconteur to legend. Weiner slunk out of Congress and didnt dare raise his head again until Andrew had passed. But he didnt count on the fact that Andrews spirit remained.
Andrew was born and raised a liberal. He stopped being a liberal precisely because he believed in the things that liberals claimed they believed in that all individuals should be treated with respect regardless of race or creed, that they should have a voice in their government, that civil rights matter, and that hypocrisy is wrong. It was his epiphany that liberals actually believe the opposite of what they preach that drove him out of the liberal camp. His incredible honesty and his refusal to accept the snobbery and lies that characterize liberalism made him liberalisms Public Enemy Number One.
Dont believe me? Scroll down to the comments. Give it a couple hours and youll see gleeful celebrations of Andrews premature passing from the members of the party of tolerance and compassion. Remember that when a liberal puts a COEXIST sticker on his Prius, he isnt talking about people like us.
Anthony Wiener is gone now, swept away because Andrew refused to let the mainstream media enablers cover for him. Without Andrew, it would be Mayor Weiner, or perhaps even Senator Weiner. The mind recoils at the thought of the personal filibustering photos the Distinguished Gentleman from Twitter would be texting to barely legal teens.
In Colorado, a young plumber who had never been involved in politics was refused entry into his state senators town hall meeting. The senator didnt feel like answering the questions the plumber and other voters had about the unconstitutional gun laws she and her fellow Democrats were shoving down Coloradans throats. That young plumber decided to make sure she heard him anyway, and on September 10th the entire liberal establishment heard him and other regular Americans roar as their shoestring campaign recalled two liberal senators.
That proud American probably never met Andrew, but he received a lot of help from people and organizations Andrew worked with during his years as a driving force in the Tea Party. Andrew believed that every American has a right to be heard, and he hated the pretension and snobbery of the liberal elite who think regular Americans should sit quietly and obey their masters.
Andrew was not much for sitting quietly.
He flayed the entertainment industry with Big Hollywood, the media with Big Journalism and the government the last refuge of otherwise unemployable liberals with Big Government. He confronted snobbery we can only imagine Andrews delight in initiating a Twitter strike on the liberal who lamented the recall blowout by tweeting, 1) NRA money 2) Voter suppression (no mail-in) 3) Huge Amendment 2-like blow to Colorado economy as creative class recoils.
Andrew would have savaged the bogus NRA money narrative by pointing out the ginormous dollar dump from liberals Mike Bloomberg and Eli Broad, and he would have mocked the voter suppression meme. But he would have saved his best for the creative class comment, a statement packed full of pretension and condescension toward the people who actually built this country and who make it function. That 29-year old plumber does more useful work for our country fixing pipes than a dozen creative class hipster doofuses twirling their goatees as they brew batches of undrinkable, cutesy-named, locally-sourced craft brews.
Andrew grew up with smug, smarmy liberals. He knew them. He was of them. That made his betrayal all the more intolerable. It made him dangerous.
And right now, as Weiner and the two ex-senators from Colorado try to find jobs in the Obama economy, Andrew is up there laughing his head off.
I would tend to agree....there is this ‘before-Andrew’ and ‘after-Andrew’ period. As we witnessed toward the end of the 1970s....the end of investigative journalism...we simply sat and waited for something to clear the air, and bring back real investigative news.
It was a fairly long and difficult wait.
The good news is Weiner lost. The bad news is fellow Stalinist de Blasio won.
I wish the author had used the plumber’s name. He’s Victor Head and he did what six figure campaign advisors are hired to do, but he did it on a shoestring. His petition drive had a 6% failure rate, the norm is 25-30%.
I LOVED ANdrew Breitbart......he was FEARLESS.....I LOVE FEARLESS!!!! He created something very, very special.....still miss him a lot....still don’t believe someone didn’t hurry his demise.
The Republicans HIGH PRICED Campaign Advisors are more than often DEMOCRATS!! Steve Schmidt, Nichole Wallace, and that twit that worked for Bush that openly SAID he was a Democrat!! We are not called the STUPID PARTY for nothing.
I AM ANDREW BREITBART.
WE ARE ANDREW BRIETBART!
It’s NYC, so what do you expect.
Maybe the author did not know the plumber’s name, or the plumber didn’t want his name used?
America is Brietbart! We need more like him! A true liberal rathen than a hypocrit liberal— The false liberals need to be exposed, and pulled down. Weiner lost because he could not control himself or his actions. New York won because he would have lead the city to more ruin. We must become Brietbart—No more slimy liberal feel good talk—action, dedication and lack of fear. Let his beliefs guide us as we make our way into a New American Freedom.
Boy, do I ever miss that guy. Doubt that we’ll see anyone as fearless as he any time soon.
I’m still waiting for that last report of his.

Weiner needed to be taken down AFTER he won the Democrat nomination. You want the most damaged people in the opposition to be the nominee.
Writers like this should know the difference between mere "civil" rights and God-given, unalienable rights.
The RKBA is not a civil right.
