R.I.P. Andy, you’ll be sorely missed.

  • Thoughts and prayers go out to the Breitbart family.

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.

  1. I was just about to tell you!! I think it’s very, very sad. He was so young.

      1. So am I. When I first saw it on Twitter, I thought it was just another one of those rumours.

  2. Devastating. Incomprehensible. It’s difficult to express the sadness this news brings. We lost a GIANT advocate for truth, justice and the American way today. May his family and friends as well as all those who simply followed, appreciated or even mirrored his tenacity and hard work find comfort in God with this terrible loss.
    Rest in Peace, Andrew, you are already missed.

  3. I have been checking out twitter. Not only do many people (leftists) use this tragedy as a way to let it rip about how awful he was (go to The Blaze to see some of the worst) – whores are now using his death to tout for business! (“I got laid last night thanks to Andrew Breitbart’s death” showing themselves in various states of undress). Unbelievable.
