DEATH OF AN AMERICAN HERO …
Sad news to report … Andrew Breitbart has passed away at the age of 43. We have lost one of the most courageous, pit bull, Conservative heroes and voices. As I drove to work I heard the news flash that Conservative activist, blogger and free speech hero Andrew Breitbart had unexpectedly passed away at the age of 43. According to accounts he collapsed while walking near his home. Andrew had a history of heart problems and it is believed he had a heart attack. As reported at the Hollywood Reporter, just hours before he passed he was talking politics. Andrew left behind a wife and 4 children. God Bless you Andrew and our prayers go out to your family and friends.
ANDREW BREITBART: 1969 – 2012 … REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND
It is a crushing loss to a man that I considered a great inspiration. Andrew Breitbart will be missed but not forgotten. Every Conservative blogger knows there is a piece of Andrew in all of us. His lasting legacy will be to never be ashamed of your Conservatism and to express you opinions and ideals always. Never be afraid to make your feelings be heard, especially when the LEFT tries to silence you.
Breitbart was walking last night near his Los Angeles home when he collapsed, said his father-in-law, actor Orson Bean.
“He collapsed on the sidewalk and the paramedics were there very quickly and they couldn’t revive him,” Bean told Reuters in a phone interview.
A friend of Breitbart told Reuters he had a history of heart problems and is believed to have suffered a heart attack.
The brash and outspoken blogger and commentator, who published politically inspired photos and undercover videos, was the center of several major news websites, including www.Breitbart.tv, www.breitbart.com and www.biggovernment.com.

Andrew Breitbart fought the war against the institutional MSM. What I most admired most was his willingness to go into the Lion’s den and tajke them on. He backed down to no one and that drove the LEFT nuts.
Breitbart’s death is a tragedy, not only for those who delighted in following him into battle but for those who cheered him on as well. Andrew was larger than life, a charismatic natural leader, a big man in every way — physically, spiritually, and intellectually. He would meet a total stranger and immediately try to enlist him or her into his army, railing against the Left’s mendacity and misdeeds. He would practically pick you up by the lapels and shake you in order to make you understand the furious, urgent necessity of his fight.
However, to the dismay of the LEFT … this is hardly the end, Andrew Breitbart and his vision will live on. He inspired far too many people and showed all of us just what it takes to take on the institutional media and the crazy LEFT. Thank you for everything … Rest in Peace.
