We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Breitbart was completely unwilling to be politically correct. To go “softly, softly now,” as the Republican establishment so often admonishes us to do. To avoid offending the delicate sensibilities of the effete ruling class.
This lion of a man roared his outrage and stormed about looking for hypocrisy and arrogance to destroy.
He demanded ethical behavior from the media, and called them on their perfidy. He refused to accept the status quo and set about creating the country he knew we were supposed to be.
He unapologetically used the left’s tactics against them and simply smiled when they acted outraged that anyone would so dare.
We have quite simply lost the greatest warrior for freedom we have seen in at least a generation.
The comments from people from Arianna Huffington to Tucker Carlson were all positive and expressed true sadness of a genuinely good person.
Some people from the Daily Kos and Slate have been disgusting, crude, and heartless. What a stark contrast to the people on Lucianne.com who largely respectfully remember those who pass even if they disagree with him vehemently. I guess that's what you can expect from the "Hate is not a family value" crowd.
May Andrew rest in peace. May his family be comforted in their loss. May the Conservative Movement recover and carry on!
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
