3. An unmitigated display of testicular fortitude: “That girl turned me down for a date, so I breitbarted her by showing up at her house and playing Peter Gabriel tunes outside her window.”
4. To dominate a situation by way of aggressive tactics: “The professor tried to intimidate the student with Noam Chomsky books, but the student breitbarted the class by quoting Thomas Sowell.”
