Andrew Breitbart died suddenly and unexpectedly early this morning. Words cannot express my grief at the loss of this wonderful, generous, courageous, conservative lion. He lived what he preached and what he preached was the truth. He faced down hordes of the enemy, usually alone, and sent them scurrying for cover. This is a devastating blow to the conservative movement at a time when we need strong, brave voices exposing and opposing the radical socialist policies of this virulently destructive administration and its leftist allies.
Andrew’s speech at CPAC may well be the one remembered as his last, although he has doubtless made many since. But that speech, worth watching in its beautiful entirety, not only captures the spirit and dedication of the man we knew, but carries with it a profound message:
This is my war cry for 2012. You need to join me in this war against the institutional left. This is not your mother’s Democratic Party. John Podesta, George Soros, this is not your mother’s Democratic Party either… I don’t care who the candidate is, and I haven’t since the beginning… Ask not what the candidate can do for you; ask what you can do for the candidate. And that’s what the Tea Party is. We are there to confront them on behalf of our candidate. I will march behind whoever our candidate is because if we don’t, we lose. There are two paths… one is America and the other one is Occupy… Anyone that’s willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive Left, I will be in that bunker. And if you’re not in that bunker because you’re not satisfied with this candidate, more than shame on you, you’re on the other side!
2012 is our last chance, and I tell you, right here, right now, that I stand with Andrew. As Americans we can do no less than firmly commit to his message. There is no better way to honor this great man. Because if we don’t enthusiastically support Obama’s Republican opponent in the 2012 election, whoever he is, and if that candidate loses as a result, we will share the blame for the virtually certain collapse of our great nation.
And just last month, his great speech at CPAC
Andrew opens his speech: “I am looking for you Occupy freaks with your glitter bombs, bring it on! Bring on the glitter.
Everything has changed. Everything has changed in the last few years. Conservatives use to take it and we are not taking it anymore. Just today as I was planning one of my stupid silly funny tricks, I didnt have to because I got word when I was doing a radio show today, that 200 of us went out to the Occupy people to stand toe to toe with them to say “we don’t, ..we are here and are proud to be conservatives and we are not going to take your…. (audience fills in blank)…anymore. I didn’t say it, I’m on TV right now. I am a respectfull conservative and my mom is watching. It’s over, it’s over, right now my Twitter feed is calling me a big fat homosexual……….hello children at home, no your dad’s not gay, that’s how the left rolls. Everybody asks me, “why to you retweet”..
