“Moron Of The Week" Inductee Andrew Breitbart Dies At 43
Before you even start ranting against me for writing such a “inappropriate” title for this post, you need to be familiar with Breitbart’s work, and although I’d never wished for him to die nor I’m happy for his passing. However, as Christopher Hitchens would have said: “Give them the credit and fame they earned when they were amongst us” (Hitchens might not have said those exact words, but he indeed practiced it with everyone he criticised, i.e. Jerry Falwell). And besides, I gave the late Senator James Forrester the same honours.
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.
According to Joe Jervis, Andrew’s father-in-law, Bean, was blacklisted during the McCarthy era for attending Communist Party meetings and was also a vocal proponent for Proposition 8.
Even his last Tweet shows his combative online persona.
Now, I love how these history revisionists just like to think we won’t remember people’s actual work and fame. Andrew wasn’t the most loved and supported in the GOP, much less in the left. He wasn’t a role model nor a hero!
