Conservative Warrior dead at 43 – Andrew Breitbart

This from the Breitbart site

In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)

by Larry Solov

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.

    He will be missed. So sad that he is gone. R.I.P. good and faithful servant.

    This is a tragic loss for the conservative movement.

    I’m also wondering about the “natural causes” part. Usually when someone dies at such a young age with no warning signs, there is a more specific cause of death. Breitbart was a thorn in Obama’s and the liberals’ sides. Could his death be one more hit job by America’s Dictator? At this point, nothing would surprise me.

      I suspect he had an ailment his family knew about that they chose to not discuss publicly. The site post suggests me it was prepared.

        I hope that’s the case. If it isn’t, the timing of his death is just plain creepy. As Sarah Roman put it: “I find it strange that only two weeks after Andrew’s CPAC speech where he announced that he had videos of Obama in college he ends up dead.” There are too many of these suspicious Obama-related circumstances popping up lateley!

Toss in your "two cents" if you care to. Fair warning, you might get change ;-)
