    I am sorry for his family.

    Will not miss his voice or his toxic brand of journalism (if you can call it that) for one second.

    I never listened to him, but I hate it when anyone that young dies. I really feel bad for his wife and kids.

    I never heard him or read him but it's funny to read about the conspiracy theories already popping up.

    Yes, but it's very strange that he died so young.  And to me, he seemed possessed. I mean, he had real hatred boiling in him...why would you have so much hate as to scream profanities at peaceful marchers? I never understood that....just like the vitriolic hate directed at Obama...why? To me, it's possession or insanity. Not kidding.

    Plus, he was scheduled to meet with Sheriff Joe, who was going after Obama on the birther thing again, and now Sheriff Joe has dropped his case.

    There is reason for wonder, I think.  especially if you have a gossipy mind!!

    I'm not into conspiracy theories, but I do find it interesting that Breitbart was supposed to release damning videos of Obama on March 1, and he died unexpectedly just after midnight on that same day. Strange.

      That's not the only conspiracy possibility.  This is an election year, after all, and Obama's first nomination was preceded by questionable events of even greater magnitude.

                    "After Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts died in 2009, Breitbart tweeted, "Rest in Chappaquiddick" and called him "a special pile of human excrement." When critics questioned his tone, he tweeted they "missed my best ones!"

          Maybe this is a clue:

          "Breitbart News Network yesterday reported to the SEC that it has raised $10 million in private funding from a pair of unidentified investors.

          My initial thought upon seeing the filing was that BNN is the parent company for right-wing activist Andrew Breitbart's myriad of websites. You might remember them from such hits as the edited videotape of Shirley Sherrod or the photo leaks that led to Rep. Anthony Weiner's resignation.

          But then I noticed that the incorporation year was 2011, whereas many of Breitbart's online endeavors started years earlier. So either this is simply a new legal entity formed this year to do formalize matters, or Breitbart is launching a different type of platform.

          Supporting the latter theory is a checkmark next to "$1 - $1,000,000" in revenue. Brietbart claims more than 20 million pageviews per month, which would mean he's earning less than half a penny in ad revenue per pageview. In industry jargon, that's horrible (particularly when matched up against his available ad positions and rate-card).

          http://finance.fortune.cnn.com/2011/09/ … something/

          A "pair of unidentified investors?" Koch Brothers?"

    I'd drive a stake throught him too..he's was trying to destroy Obama on behalf of Netanyahu:

    Breitbart:
    "we’re actually seeing the unions and the anarchists and the Socialists working from the Hamas playbook in trying to incite violence with the police in order to foment a greater violent revolution.”

    These neo-con Zionistst are the nastiest people on earth. And the whole birther thing was started by Taitz, who was sent here by Bibi, and whose husband is involved with the swine flu vaccine. Octopus. Global drug and arms dealing.

    And of course, Breitbart's involvement with Sheriff Joe, who has been investigated for violating prisoners civil rights. Which leads you right to gvr Brewer, wiggling her finger in Obama's face, and whose immigration bill was for the purpose of Corrections Industries Inc.

    It's a criminal regime. Anti-American and pro-Israeli.

    It's a war for America. I M O

      The Progressives started the war long ago; and it's a war ON America; they're just now getting bolder with it.
      If you have some image of conservatives just bowing down without a fight, I think you're sadly mistaken.   
      "Wiggling her finger in Obama's face"?   Good grief.  That upsets you?  Obama incites racial and social unrest all over America and other Nations, and basically gives Jan Brewer (and all of us!) the finger, and you're offended that she has the nerve to wiggle her finger in his face?  LOL.  This Nation needs many more Jan Brewers then!

      I've read enough of your posts to know that IYO all of the world's ills can be laid at the feet of pro-lifers and the Jews and then you remark about driving a stake through the heart of dead man.  In the same forum thread you refer to "vitriolic hate" and that conservatives hate Obama and spewing hate at every opportunity. There's an age old adage that refers to glass houses and those that live within them...do you know it?

    To become president requires a humungous stash of money.....

    and it applies to all of them.

    Breitbart was playing with the big boys. They don't play.

    And don't forget the lives he ruined: All those people who depended on ACORN, Anthony Weiner, and Shirley Sherrod--of the public figures.

    He also was aligned with Pamela Geller, an avowed muslim-hater.

    A saint he was not.

      Saint or not, he doesn't deserve such hatred and fear-mongering as you saying you'd put a stake through his heart.
      What part of common sense and respect do you not understand?  Or admit to.  Because if someone said that about a liberal activist or your Leftist President Obama, you'd be all over 'em like stink on rotting fish.

    It's not hard to pick a "favorite" Breitbart moment. I remember talking about this non-scandal on HP forums. It blows me away that one man would take it upon himself to ruin this woman's reputation and career like he did.
    Why?

    In 2010, Breitbart posted a 2 1/2-minute video of Shirley Sherrod, a black employee of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in which she appeared to make racially charged comments. It left viewers with the inaccurate impression Sherrod had deliberately not helped a white man save his family farm in 1986 when she worked for a Georgia nonprofit organization.

    The furor from the video caused Sherrod to be fired; when it was later revealed  her comments had been taken out of context, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack called Sherrod to apologize and ask whether she would return to the department.

    Probably the overstimulation of Sheriff Joe reopening Obama's BC issue.
    I know that seems to be getting a lot of people's blood pumping.
