Andrew Breitbart, The Five Year Anniversary

Andrew Breitbart died five years ago today. He died at the very young age of 43, while walking in his Brentwood, California neighborhood. Bad ticker. He is so missed.

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.

I first heard about Andrew Breitbart when I read his book “Hollywood Interrupted: Insanity Chic in Babylon-The Case Against Celebrity”. I don’t remember a whole lot about the book but I know he called out the celebrity hypocrites and wrote about a private school that graduated the children of celebrities without educating them.

Andrew Breitbart helped Arianna Huffington found The Huffington Post. He founded Breitbart News, Big Government and Big Journalism. In addition to “Hollywood Interrupted”, Andrew Breitbart wrote “Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save The World”.

There’s the National Organization for Women feminist faction, there’s the NAACP liberal African-American faction, there’s the La Raza Hispanic faction. They’re pitted against each other and it runs so contrary to the E pluribus unum American middle class experience.

Andrew Breitbart introduced us to James O’Keefe and helped take down ACORN, the (ahem) community organizing group. Breitbart helped to expose (tee hee) Anthony (Carlos Danger) Weiner.

Just watch Andrew Breitbart take over the Weiner presser and crush it.

“Walk toward the fire. Don’t worry about what they call you. All those things are said against you because they want to stop you in your tracks. But if you keep going, you’re sending a message to people who are rooting for you, who are agreeing with you. The message is that they can do it, too.”

Andrew Breitbart predicted Donald Trump. From the L. A. Times:

Breitbart, who launched an irreverent, anti-establishment conservative news site that shares his name, said then that Trump’s media savvy and his plans for a presidential run should be a warning to the Republican establishment. “If these guys don’t learn how to play the media … we’re going to probably get a celebrity candidate.”

Andrew Breitbart lived his life fast and hard. Andrew Breitbart spoke truth to power. Andrew Breitbart lived life with no fear. He inspires today and for years to come.

Rest in Peace, Andrew Breitbart. Rest well, Warrior.
