He was good at blowing holes in the lazy mainstreams fantasy narratives.

i actually am not a fan of hannity and limbaugh but this guy was extremly inteligent and brought the social media to the conservative movement. he was frequent on the bill maher show, so he wasnt afraid to speak his mind. he also exposed that fraud anthony weiner. this is a big loss, but he put so much in motion in conservative media that i think his legacy will live on.

It made my day a lot better to hear the news yesterday, but considering the fact that there are hundreds like him eager to take his place, it matters little in the scheme of things.

i dont think hes a bad person for feeling ill will towards him. i consider myself a decent individual, i volunteer my time for people i am sure dont agree with me and give to charity, but i remember when tedd kennedy died there was a side of me that was glad, i wasnt proud of it but i couldnt help but think what a scum bag he was. from his lies to the blood he had on his hand. politics brings out alot of anger in people, especially when we think certain individuals are "out to get us".

i am sure if i knew tedd kennedy personally and if he knew andrew breitbart and his family, we wouldnt of had these feelings. it all stems from insecurity and we are only human.

haha. if you see it that way. i dont think having empathy is owned by any political belief but i see what you mean. people think if you are a conservative you have to be heartless, and people think if you are a liberal you are a sissy. i think if we all actually knew each other we would feel a little different. i have always said that i cant stand obama and his policies, but i guarantee you if i knew him and worked with him everday and spent time with his wife/daughters my feelings towards would be alot different.

the most generous person i know is a republican partisan and some of the strongest people i know are liberals.

My economic views have nothing to do with any of this. Grouping people is the sort of thing Breitbart would have done too.

It is interesting to note things like this because people stereotype so easily.

For example, the many people I have met that classify themselves as true Republicans are either Agnostic or they believe but go to Church once in a blue moon. For the most part, they can't quote a thing from the bible and don't really care about it. A few are even Atheist. However, other than the religious aspects they are very conservative in thinking. So much for the jargon out there that conservatives are all religious zealots and likewise that liberals are all atheists. As on that note there are quite a few 'liberals' who I have known that go to Church regularly and can quote the bible easily, texts, verses and all.

I wanna see those tapes he was talking about right before he died. On his program Thursday, Fox News’ Sean Hannity spoke with Steve Bannon (producer of The Undefeated, among various other films) about a series of tapes Andrew Breitbart claimed to have about Barack
