Today the conservative movement has lost an icon: Andrew Breitbart. As all of us know, Breitbart was a shaker and a mover when it came down to defending the cause of conservatism and exposing the lies of the liberal left particularly in mainstream media. To conservatives coast-to-coast, just the mention of his name, “Breitbart” commanded respect and elicited rousing applause whenever one had the opportunity to see him speak in person.
Andrew Breitbart changed his political views early on in his career after the Clarence Thomas hearings and became a Reagan conservative who was also sympathetic to libertarian issues.
Breibart gave himself fully to the conservative movement on so many levels, and he also joined the Tea Party community on many stages and rallies throughout America. Tea Party Review Magazine had the privilege of sharing the stage with Andrew Breitbart, and we also shared conversations, thoughts, and views during bus trips across America.
Just a few weeks ago at CPAC, the Tea Party Review publishing and editorial team talked with Andrew in the lobby of the Wardman Marriott. It was a thoughtful and happy conversation and one that we sadly say was our last.
Today, we honor a fearless leader, and our prayers are with his family, staff, and friends.
Let’s continue to honor Andrew Breitbart in a most meaningful way by continuing the fight for freedom and liberty.
