Skip to comments.In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)
Posted on 03/01/2012 6:00:33 AM PST by ImJustAnotherOkie
Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.
We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.
Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.
Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:
I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, andfamouslyI enjoy making enemies.
Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. Ive lost friends, perhaps dozens. But Ive gained hundreds, thousandswho knows?of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

This is totally unexpected. Wow.
Any chance of him being taken out by unnatural causes?
>> I dont understand how a 42 year old can die of natural causes.
It’s rare in someone that young, but it *can* happen. Example: ruptured brain, abdominal, or thoracic aneurysm. Death can follow within minutes, and there are often no warning signs beforehand.
This is devastating. Sooo young. RIP Mr. Breitbart :(
Wow, what a shocker. Out of the blue. We lost one of our best journalistic warriors.
Looks authentic to me. See too http://www.breitbart.tv/in-memoriam-andrew-breitbart-1969-2012/
Its on his own site unless someone hacked it
FOX hasn’t mentioned this yet.
ABCNNBCBS would not care if he died and probably wouldn’t report on it if he did..............
Stunned, simply stunned. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
We’ll continue the fight, Andrew, you rest now in peace.
$100 says this is another interweb hoax
I am almost thinking the same. If he is dead this is horribly suspicious and not unexpected from O. Especially after him claiming to have tapes of O.
That would be nice.
I’m hoping this is not so.
Truly a sad day if true.
I would say yes, since he recently announced he had some college-era videos of Obama.
Andrew was one of the greatest Americans alive. He was a hero of mine and deserved to be a hero to all people who wanted to look behind the curtain and restore America to a close connection with its historical ideals.
There was nobody — nobody — more passionate in his love of America and the truth as was Andrew Breitbart.
May his memory be for a blessing.

So its real.—
Or the site’s been hacked, or something else.
Time will tell, and it won’t take much.
We have lost a brave and brilliant warrior for freedom, Andrew cannot be replaced.
Huge loss for conservatism at a time when we can’t afford any losses.
Prayers out to his family and loved ones, as well as his staff.
just checked his twitter and he tweeted 6 hours ago.
wiki already shows his death date as today.
I so hope this is NOT true.
