SHOCK AND DISBELIEF - ANDREW BREITBART 1969-2012
The last time I saw Andrew Breitbart I was watching CPAC while I was making dinner in my kitchen. As I was listening to him speak, I was compelled to stop everything I was doing and put my face right in front of the tv just to catch his passionate enthusiasm and his message. I was spellbound. I was excited. I was grateful. I was almost delirious to hear the pep talk he was giving to those of us who are trying to get the truth out there. And on that score, he did more than most. He embodied the best of what journalism is supposed to be.
I'm still in shock. I cannot believe what I am seeing this morning. I can't believe this man died of natural causes at the age of 43. I am just dumbstruck in shock.
So go to Big Government, Big Hollywood, Big Journalism and stop by for a minute to say a prayer for a great man who gave us gumption. I have had those Breitbart sites linked on the sidebar of my blog ever since he created them. I pray his mission will be carried forth. His inspiration will last for those of us who admired him and keep on working to expose the left.
Adding this quote from Andrew here:
“Not only can you take assaults, you can weather them and be strengthened by them — and gain the power to punch back, to go onto the offensive. Our opponents have spent so many years on the offensive with people lying prone at their feet that they’ve forgotten what it’s like to be on the defensive. If we come after them, they won’t know how to respond.”
