Andrew Breitbart Has Died at the Age of 43 (1969-2012)

First, I was in shock when I read this news. Then I surfed the internet to confirm the news.  This is extremely sad news.  It is reported that he died unexpectedly of natural causes. I have to admit that a 43-year-old dying from natural causes sounds suspicious to me.  Something with this just doesn't sit right with me.  We have lost a great patriot in the fight to keep America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. We have lost a fantastic conservative stalwart in the fight to stop the progressive attack on America and its very foundation.  My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends as they mourn his loss.


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.

Here are more great posts in remembrance of Andrew Breitbart - from The Other McCain and Camp of the Saints.

It sounds odd on the surface. How can they announce any "cause" before a full autopsy?

Regardless, this is a huge and shocking loss.

The reason that I am convinced that it is natural causes is the fact that is what they are saying immediately. If someone dies at home (don't know if that is what happened) there are police involved. That is standard procedure and the body can't be moved until they determine if there was a crime committed. My bil died a few years back of natural causes from a heart problem he never knew he had. He was 39.

It seems to me that he may have had some sort of health issue that he was aware of and since we don't know him we are unaware of it.

Either way, we lost a warrior today. My prayers to his wife and kids.

He was a Patriot!

We have lost one of our own.

Sad day. We lost a truly fearless patriot.

It was shocking to hear the news this morning and I had to look online to confirm it as well and was devastated. He was only a year older than myself.

I am very suspicious of the circumstances of his death as well. He had many, many enemies who wanted to silence him forever, I am so afraid that someone might have succeeded.

May God be with this wife, children and all his loved ones. He is going to be sorely missed by many of us who valued this crusade for exposing the truth.

This is so sad! I feel so badly for his family and close friends. He will be missed by those of us on the right.

Lars Larson (local conservative radio guy) said Breitbart's family has hereditary heart problems. Whether that's the cause or not, it is heartbreaking.
