In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart’s Enemies React to His Passing (Updated w/ Ugliness from Slate’s Matt Yglesias)
March 1, 2012 - 7:34 am
One of Andrew Breitbart’s most endearing habits: when angry progressives sent their hatred his way he retweeted it for all his followers to see.
Andrew argued that we needed to show everyone the nature of the people working to destroy America. With that insight in mind, this post will serve as a continually-updated collection of the disgusting reactions to his death.
As of 2:00 PM on the East Coast:
- Cenk Uygur @cenkuygur It’s confirmed. Breitbart has passed away. tinyurl.com/7hbactc Ironic legacy is that no one was sure because it was reported by his website.
@brodeep Andrew Breitbart was a cancer of society, a separatist, and above all, a fucking CANCER. Enjoy Hell, you bastard. @silasgalactic Andrew Breitbart is the Paris Hilton of political journalism except he has no money, no talent, and no original ideas. @Dakoda_1022 Andrew Breitbart died, age 43. Laying doubt to the saying ‘the good die young’ huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/01/and… @twolf10 Who will ask romney if his church will now baptize Andrew Breitbart? @BenFinfer What kind of god takes Andrew Breitbart but leaves Ann Coulter? @darrenfiorello: Andrew Breitbart died? Is it wrong that I’m happier about that than when they got bin Laden and Saddam? @shivabeach Andrew Breitbart poisoned himself to death with lies and deception. He did this just to get away from Shirley Sherrod. @janxjue7 LOLing at the image of Andrew Breitbart arguing on Twitter then clutching his chest like Fred Sanfor9um5OM @FakeJanBrewer Andrew Breitbart dead at 43, proudly with no health insurance! xo AZ Gov Jan Brewer @peterfhart ABC on Breitbart: He “broke the ACORN child sex trafficking scandal.” NO SUCH THING. Fitting tribute to his “work” @patrickhermann [dead but he was a dick] Andrew Breitbart @cliffordNYC Andrew Breitbart is dead now. It’s not funny I guess, technically @CM721F So, Andrew Breitbart is dead. Congratulations humans on ridding yourself of one of your more angry members. @dkbilson How long will it take before Michelle Malkin accuses ACORN of murdering Andrew Breitbart? @Knightscribe Youdon’tdie of natural causes at 43 unless you were caught in a fucking earthquake. Coke, or smothered by a gay escort
