BREAKING: Andrew Breitbart, Conservative Internet Publisher And Unexpected LGBT Ally, Dead At 43

Andrew Breitbart, conservative publisher of Breitbart.com, died unexpectedly from natural causes last night, reports ABC. He was 43.

Though rabidly conservative in many ways, Breitbart was an unexpected ally in the fight for gay rights, going so far as to join the board of GOProud, a Log Cabin-type gay Republican org. He had to step down after a little kerfuffle involving the outing of a Rick Perry strategist. Breitbart also played a curious role in the defrocking of Andrew Weiner.

Breitbart’s family announced his death this morning on his website, and the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office has confirmed that he died shortly after midnight at UCLA Medical Center.

His family posted the following statement on his website:

With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart. We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.

Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.

Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:

“I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.

Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.’

Andrew is at rest, yet the happy warrior lives on, in each of us.

Rest in peace, Andrew.

      Kudos to Mr. Mulvihill for steering commenters to civility. I suspect there are a lot of Democrats out there who are chomping at the bit to celebrate this news, but this is not the time nor the place for that. Whether you agreed with him or not, Breitbart was a passionate activist who was almost religious in his convictions (especially in his support of gays), and for that he should be commended.

      Hm, as soon as I wrote that comment, Queerty apparently removed the part in which Evan Mulvihill asked readers to keep their comments civil or they’d be booted. I guess being civil didn’t sit too well with the gay community.

      He did more than join GOPround, he confronted every anti-gay Democrat Union member & Occupier screaming “Fag” and “homo” and such, that ever came at him. There’s plenty of video of him defending gay folks right to the faces of our supposed “Allies” — members of teh Democratic Socialist power machine. Egad, there’s so much more to his defending us than joining GOProud.

      No matter how much I may have disagreed with his politics or tactics, I cannot forget that he was a father, brother, uncle, and son. He was only 43….one year older than I. The loss of any life is tragic as everyone has someone who will miss them and grieve for them. I hope he rests in peace.

      And for those of you who may want wax romantic over this pig fucker and chastise me for pissing on his grave remember this:

      “Early this morning, news broke that Sen. Ted Kennedy had passed away after serving in the U.S. Senate for nearly 50 years. Soon after, conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart began a sustained assault on Kennedy’s memory, tweeting “Rest in Chappaquiddick.”

      Over the course of the next three hours, Breitbart unapologetically attacked Kennedy, calling him a “villain,” “a big ass motherf@#$er,” a “duplicitous bastard” and a “prick.” “I’ll shut my mouth for Carter. That’s just politics. Kennedy was a special pile of human excrement,” wrote Breitbart in one tweet.”

      Considering how Breitbart “memorialized” Ted Kennedy (on his Twitter feed, look it up: Googling their names and “pile of human excrement” should do it), I’m not all that inclined to be civil, and can only laugh bitterly at any demands to be so. You reap what you sow.

      @Anchor baby: People of all ages die of natural causes. Every now and then you’ll hear of a high school athlete dropping dead on the basketball court or wherever for a previously-unknown heart defect. AIDS falls within “natural causes,” and look how many people that has kept from reaching old age. My stepbrother died of an aneurism just before his 21st birthday. People in their 40’s sometimes have strokes or heart attacks, especially if they don’t (or even just haven’t always) taken care of themselves, though it can happen anyway. Cancer can strike at any age, from small children to centenarians. And so on, and so on.

      If you have some specific reason (other than just not liking him) to believe *this particular man* died an unnatural death, by all means, say what that specific reason is. But claiming it never happens is nonsense.

      My condolences to his family, but I cannot say anything good about Breitbart. I have no respect for people, gay or straight who though they claim they support rights for LGBT people continue to vote for and support financially, a party that consistently votes away our rights and uses them as wedge issues to score points and win elections by villifying, dehumanizing and denigrating us.

      The man was as much a gay ally as Mann Cuntler is. That is to say, not one except in the most peripheral sense. He was a vile, self-aggrandizing, vicious attack dog with the ethics of a drunk porn producer at Mardi Gras, a publisher of lies and smears without conscience and a buffoon of the highest order, a shrill shill for all that is worst in the Right Wing of American public life and humanity in general…and yet even with all of that, it’s a shame he died so young.

      43 is too young to go, and now, he’ll never be able to take back any of the things he said or make amends for the lives he destroyed in his time.

      If you throw yourself in front of a bus, you also die from natural causes – inertia, mass, and velocity – all quite natural. If you throw yourself off a building, the natural cause of death is gravity. Plenty of natural causes behind people’s deaths everyday.

      First, the man was hateful and full of rage. He’s a case study in lack of anger management. Worse, he was probably somewhat mentally ill. Anyone who hates as much as he does has a few screws loose. The sad thing is that people followed and respected him. Shame on anyone, conservative or whatever, who thought this guy was anything more than a ragefilled vengefull nut case who deserved to be ignored. He needed serious therapy instead.

      Second, it was just at the latest GOProud convention that he embarrassed journalist Mike Signorile and publicly ridiculed him while he was in the audience. He didn’t like Signorile because he had outed some gay conservatives back in the early 90s, even while Brietbart had no problems outing gay liberals.

      That’s not an advocate for gays. Rather, he was using gays as a way to stick it to liberals. I notice not one of his defenders has been able to quote one message or cite to one instance in which he actually promoted gay rights.

      I’m wouldn’t be surprised if his will stipulates that his executors continue the smears by accusing liberals as being behind his untimely death.

      Breitbart was representative of all that is wrong with politics in America today. He said he was pro-gay, yet he worked to support every politician and media outlet that spread anti-gay lies and hatred. He must have been completely nuts. So God bless him, I hope he was greeted at heaven’s gates by Lee Atwater, who no doubt greeted him by saying “Your journey is over, and thank God you left earth before you destroyed any everything down there.”

      While its sad when ANY life is lost, when the life lost was a life built on lies, hate and rage, with no compassion or human decency, it is less sad than when someone like Davy Jones dies. I’ll be mourning the loss of a Monkee and a sweet human being far longer than this hate junkie.

      regardless of what folks think about this particular man? you’d think his detractors would recognize: some of Queerty’s writers will be reluctant to piss on a man’s grave (except in instances when it’s undeniably deserved). or that his defenders might be able to concede: no one is above criticism.

      Breitbart may have been a vile, nasty man, but in his own vile, nasty way he was a supporter of at least some gay rights.

      For one, he supported the rights of vile, nasty gay men and women who shared his political beliefs.

      So perhaps, 100 years from now, when a vile, nasty, openly gay man runs for office, no one will care if he’s openly gay.

      Hopefully, they’ll care that he’s vile and nasty.

      It’s nice to see that even gays, like heteros, don’t agree on this Left-Right split — makes us seem more normal, eh? But if you want to preach socialism, well, go ahead, I’m against it. Možna Vy prot?ebovala rodiny v ?eska republika skrz na komunismus ve?i. Maybe you needed relatives in the Czech Republic during the communist times (I’ll translate as I go along, I heard it first hand from family who suffered.) Why anyone would want socialism is beyond me; or theocracy for that matter. Liberty is what matters. Not whether Socialists or Theocrats love us more. They are both abominations. A pox on both their houses.

      But don’t speak ill of the dead, it’s so communist; and hell, they slaughtered millions more than any capitalist, that’s for sure, and condemned them all. And many here follow those footsteps, sad.

      Meanwhile, Breitbart came out often for us, and against those Occupiers and Democratic Party followers who screamed at him “fag,” and “homo,” because the Left loves us. Hahahaha!

      Oh, and for all you intellectually dishonest, clueless, delusional conserva-gay fans of Breitbart, I present to you some of the gay rights this vile, nasty man did not support: gay marriage, and the right to serve in the military. He wasn’t a big supporter of gay adoption either, but I’m not sure what his position was the day he died.

      To quote him in 2011: “I Am Not Endorsing Gay Marriage, I’m Not Endorsing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” And I Fear “The Activist Gay Left … More Than Al-Qaida.”

      I guess he supported the right of GOProud to make damned fools of themselves at CPAC 2011. But again, in its own vile way, that’s progress – compared to what much of the social conservative movement would have done, which is booted them out altogether.

Since in all reality he probably is a baby fucking bible thumping siphillitic closeted hetero with a nasty case of crabs and enough chronic hallitosis to put down a heard of angry rhinos. ;)

      What a piece of shit he was!I can’t tell you how delighted I am he’s DEAD! I really don’t care if that upsets anyone. And, the only family members I feel sorry for are his children, his wife knew what a scumbag he was when she married him and his parents (he was adopted, no doubt his biological mother was a heavy drug user) raised him to be the psychopathic fringe lunatic loser he was up until the day he died.

      Now, off the “Breitbart is dead” party!!! I hope I get there before the place is over capacity.

      @Anchor baby: What’s really sad is that you have actually put that much time and effort into “thinking” about me and creating an image of me when I haven’t given the same consideration to you. So, thanks for the compliment. I’m glad I’m on your mind and that I at least made you think, which was no doubt a new experience for you. Cheers ;).

      Apparently you’re completely ignorant to the things this dead asshole said on a daily basis. Perhaps you get all of your information on Fox “News”, that would explain your naivete. You might want to do a little research on what a decent human being this piece of shit was before you open ill-informed mouth.

You have shown me nothing that I couldn’t easily dig up right here on Queerty from sanctimonious people who claim to be so marginalized and hated but are quick to show that same hate toward not only their fellow gays but to allies, as well.

      Hate is bad for your health. Too bad conservatives. Breitbart fed like a cancer on lower middle class people’s hate and intolerance, fanning their fears, applauding their prejudices. Shirley Sherrod and Anthony Weiner are justifiably smiling tonight. Anybody feel sorry for Miss Drudge?

      Your serious lack and grasp of reality is astounding. “quick to show that same hate toward not only their fellow gays but to allies, as well.” Are you seriously suggesting that Breitbart was an ally? Don’t feed the troll, you can’t argue or reason with stupid.

    • Brietbart was a class act

      All of you cheering on his death don’t display the class and dignity that he himself had. For example, here’s what he said about Ted Kennedy’s death:


      Andrew Breitbart, a Washington Times columnist who oversees Breitbart.com and BigHollywood.com, tapped into the anti-Kennedy vein in the hours after the senator’s death was announced, posting a series of Twitter messages in which he called Kennedy a “villain,” a “duplicitous bastard” and a “prick.”

      “I’m more than willing to go off decorum to ensure THIS MAN is not beatified,” Breitbart wrote. “Sorry, he destroyed lives. And he knew it.”


      We should all show the late Breitbart the same level of civility and discourse in his death that he showed to others.

      Have at it! ;)

I don’t think anyone here takes him seriously anyway. So just let the man be–simply being Isaac must be punishment enough.

      Maybe I’d believe Andrew Breitbart was more of a friend to the gay community if I heard him utter just one, ONE, condemnation of his party or their anti-gay agenda or even the rebuke of a Rick Santorum, who seems to come up with some new ant-gay swill on a daily basis.
      And perhaps if he wasn’t so hellbent on destroying liberals, their causes, their office holders — or had he not made up shit about ACORN, or Shirley Sherrod …or gone after Anthony Weiner for the crime of showing his pud on the internet, Id be inclined to believe the “Andrew was such a cool guy” bullshit I’m reading.
      How much did the GOP pay for some of these ridiculous, inane comments? They’re insulting to all gay people, those in the fight, minorities and people who liked Ted Kennedy. Count me in all those groups.
      Goodbye to sleaze bags. I wont shed a tear for any of them. He had kids? Yeah, so did Ted Kennedy.

      Fascist has nothing to do with people insulting you or disagreeing with you. Fascism means that you support a dictatorial, corporatist, militaristic governmental body…that’s the Republicans, dude, not gay people. Sorry…

      Of course, by correcting you Fox Newsian definition of a word to insist you use the REAL meaning, I am sure you think I’m a fascist too…

      Ok, after looking up for myself even more of the asinine things this man said..no more dignified restraint.

      He was a fascist bastard in the vein of Rush Limbaugh and other right wing lunatics. Also, evidence shows he was likely not all there upstairs, and it only enabled his mental illness that so many fellow conservatives gave him a platform from which to spew his bullshit.

      Hate kills, Mr. Breitbart, and we’re all better off since it killed you, you piece of filthy excrement.

      —-So, Evan, as much as I believe that debate strengthens ideas and expands understanding, there is also the concept that only idiots argue with morons.

      @jason: The irony is that you will NEVER recognize the irony that you painted a portrait of yourself in your diatribe.

      And so, now troll jason, you have embraced the as true Bryan Fischer’s et al completely made-up-to-antagonize lies that somehow the fun loving Berlin cabaret boys started the Nazi Party; the gays who proudly be who they are should be imprisoned, for doing nothing but expressing their beliefs, for 20 years; that you yourself have written posts here on Queerty about attending sex clubs and bathhouses.

      Shame on you — and you know there is no excuse for being a Kapo, yet that is exactly what you are and have done.
