    Remembering Andrew Breitbart 2 years after his death

    Remembering Andrew Breitbart 2 years after his death

    Wondering what might have been.

    Two years ago today, Andrew Breitbart died.

    The entire conservative blogosphere was in shock, and even some opponents of Andrew, such as Eric Boehlert of Media Matters, paid their respects.

    There’s not much I can add, two years later, to my post, A personal note on the death of Andrew Breitbart:

    I only spoke once with Andrew Breitbart. He reached out to me, and we spoke by phone. The topic is not important, but I was shocked that he even knew who I was; but as I’ve come to learn, Andrew seemed to know who everyone was in the conservative blogosphere. He was just that way.

    Since my wife called this morning to let me know of Andrew’s death, it has been hard to focus on anything else. In her words, we don’t have that many bright media lights, and to lose him hurts.

    Andrew lived in a world without restraints. He could be who he wanted to be, a luxury few bloggers have, particularly those who blog under their own name and work for others.

    I live in a world of restraints, and I envied Andrew’s freedom more than you can know.

    Andrew is irreplaceable, but we would serve his memory well to aspire to more freedom of thought and more freedom of action.

    I’ve often wondered where to go with this blog. I now know.

    This interview of Breitbart by Prof. Glenn Reynolds and Dr. Helen Smith still is one of my favorites:

    “I’ve often wondered where to go with this blog. I now know.”

    That sentence has come to mind often in the last two years.

    The Sherrod vampires are still going after his wife and children; are the latter getting enough legal help to see them through that nightmare?

    You are missed, Andrew.

    Thanks for posting. Truth needs to be told. And you are so right, in so many ways. Especially in this:

    It’s no coincidence that the Israel haters also hate us.

    Keep that in mind when you hear about the BDS movement.

    Defeating BDS is not about Israel alone, it’s about our own freedoms and civilization.

    Andrew was right on Blumenthal; so are you, Professor. Keep standing.

    Andrew was a force of nature and one to be reckoned with. With the utmost in pleasure and brilliance he fearlessly took on the Left and it MSM facilitators. Ironically, he resembled a typical Obama apparatchik in aggressively playing offense all day and all night. His was a simple message: We don’t accept your “progressive” vision for America and we’ll call you out for every lie, smear, and act that betrays the citizenry and its constitutionally-granted rights. The IRS scandal would most likely have catalyzed his greatest work ever. What a tragic loss for his family and for us all. He is sorely missed.
