I didn’t know the man, but I came to admire him greatly. He had fire in his belly, a trait sorely lacking in most journalists today, right or left. He will be sorely missed.
The following obituary was posted at Breitbart’s Web site this morning.
IN MEMORIAM: ANDREW BREITBART (1963-2012)
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.

Outing a Lefty Hack: “Reporter” Who Supports “Outing” His Homosexual Political Enemies Badgers Andrew Breitbart
Note that the gay guy pestering Breitbart is what passes for a “reporter” these days, and this is the way they routinely act about … everything. Before their—and I’m referring not just to homosexualists, but to members of the entire spectrum of the racial socialist alliance—work appears in print, or is broadcast, it is typically edited, so that this stuff doesn’t appear, though they and their editors have gotten increasingly lax over the past 20 or so years.
