I was present at the Tea Party Convention at the Opryland Hotel February 2010 when Breitbart delivered the speech, telling the media that “it’s you who sucks”. The crowd loved him and the entire, inspiring speech.

    logos — if you have a link, please share. I can’t find one.

    thanks.

      Raven, I have no link, but I discovered 4 minutes of flip video on my hard drive today of the last four minutes of Breitbart’s speech, where I panned over the video/press at the back of the room when Breitbart zinged them at the end of his speech. The crowd was on their feet, cheering. There was one very sour face at the back of the room, who obviously didn’t like being on the receiving end of a video camera. Don’t know who he is.

Breitbart’s strategy against the left and their media complex followed Reagan’s strategy against the Soviet’s – WE WIN, THEY LOSE.

TRANSMOGRIFY THE ELITE MEDIA MEME: How to redirect the narrative back to the issues of real importance to regular Americans. Andrew was the master of how to do it. Newt did it quite admirably this weekend: We all need to learn how to do it.

Breitbart’s work will continue. The Breitbart organization has begun its promised vetting of Obama – which is actually a longterm daily campaign:

“From today through Election Day, November 6, 2012, we will vet this president–and his rivals.”

Here is Day One – http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/03/04/obama-alinsky-love-song

This is maybe not the time and place, but Breitbart’s passing has served to emphasize we are long overdue to figure out how to reboot our Fourth Estate. What we’re doing now isn’t working. Freedom of opinion may be well and good, but freedom to disguise opinion as information has not served the nation well recently. “Letting the market decide” is taking too long.

In my view it might be more desirable to re-right the ship of state than sink it outright and build another. But that could just be me.

Where in this timeline does AB apologize to the left, so as to gain the higher ground and all its wondrous benefits?

    Interesting, really. On the heels of Breitbart’s death, and after his own tribute to him, Rush apparently didn’t even pause to consider Breitbart’s lesson.

      Karl Rogue in reply to raven. | March 5, 2012 at 11:04 pm

      Right. Blog comments on Friday were about 50/50 split between invocations of the fighting spirit of AB and critiques of Rush for making conservatives look bad. I swear we are ADD.

        Couldn’t agree more. And isn’t it ironic and fascinating that Breitbart actually was ADD? He was like our own beautiful idiot savant.

What an amazing list of accomplishments in three short years. We have a lot of work to do to step into the void left by Andrew’s death.

It can be done because it must be done.

An excellent introduction to the left-wing movement and the path followed by Breitbart to his “epiphany”.

The Politics of Hollywood with Andrew Breitbart

Followed this link from Instapundit about a closet Hollywood conservative who came “out” after Breitbart’s death; it’s very moving?

[…] Andrew Breitbart is more of a journalist and more active in the pursuit of truth than all the Ben Smiths which populate Big Media. Share […]
