Andrew Breitbart Has Passed Away

I’m just shocked. 

I don’t know what to say.  Andrew was one of the best.

I’ll keep Andrew’s family and friends in my prayers:

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.

Update:  Here’s a little more info:


Breitbart was walking near his home in Brentwood, Calif just after midnight Thursday when he collapsed according to his father-in-law Orson Bean. Someone saw Breitbart fall and called 911. Emergency crews tried to revive him and rushed him to the emergency room at UCLA Medical Center, Bean said.

  1. I am sorry Andrew passed away so suddenly.

    He was 3 years older than me.

    I am going to make sure I read up on his books from my local library.

    RIP Andrew!
    God bless your wife and kids!

  2. Kevin Gray Says:

    I sure hope, “natural causes” everyone is reporting has been verified. The elephant in the room is Andrew had many powerful enemies…just say’n.
