Andrew Breitbart Dies At 43

Conservative Commentor Andrew Breitbart died unexpectedly of natural causes early this morning.  He was 43 years old.

From BigGovernment.com:

With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart.

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, and—famously—I 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. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

Andrew is at rest, yet the happy warrior lives on, in each of us.

    to the already so outnumbered Conservative “freedom fighters,” in the looney-left media majority, that we have to deal with.. probably died of a broken heart, seeing how far gone as a country we are..RIP, brave soul, and thanks for your efforts to enlighten our dumbed-down populace, on the madness of how our freedoms are being wrenched from us, on a daily basis….

    A true loss to the Conservative movement.

    From ABC & The AP
     ‎”Breitbart was walking near his house in the Brentwood neighborhood shortly after midnight Thursday when he collapsed, his father-in-law, Orson Bean, said.
    Someone saw him fall and called paramedics”

    “Los Angeles County coroner’s office, said a cause of death was unknown”

    To say you have footage of the president from his college years and it’s not good, then you end up dead a few weeks later of an unknown cause and someone happens to see you fall when you’re walking at midnight. The whole thing just seems very odd to me.

    Who knows Charles…can you die of a heart attack if you don’t have a heart? Can’t say I’m all that sorry though..and he’s getting better than he gave from the media. Also, he’s being treated better than he treated Sen. Kennedy after he died. Some of those vile things he said must have hurt Sen. Kennedy’s family, but he didn’t care about HIS family all that much. And, the trumped up and edited video that cost Shirley Sherrod her job was just despicable. Oh well.
