Why Andrew Breitbart as a fiscal conservative activist was a better friend to gays than Barack Obama

Cynthia Yockey stands by Andrew Breitbart at CPAC 2012 in the Bloggers Lounge.

Andrew Breitbart and Cynthia Yockey at CPAC 2012: I stand by Andrew Breitbart (for the significance of that statement, listen to Andrew's CPAC 2012 speech at around minute 14:00). Andrew was passing through the Bloggers Lounge and I pounced on him and asked if I could have a photo with him to go with my Advocate op-ed, "Equality will come from the Right: Why Andrew Breitbart is a better friend to gays than Barack Obama." He graciously agreed, but that meant that leftist gadfly Liz Glover could start peppering him with questions. When she got on the subject of his break with GOProud, I jumped in. The commotion attracted Tommy Christopher of Mediaite and he or someone with him videoed the interview. I will update this post with a response to his post, "Liz Glover confronts Andrew Breitbart and Dana Loesch over GOProud ban," since I only just read it today. However, I will point out that the fact that the reason she caught up with him was the dignity and respect he was showing to A Conservative Lesbian thoroughly spoils the leftist narrative. I'm guessing the last thing she expected was to have that argument directly with a conservative lesbian involved and fighting back, literally shoulder-to-shoulder with Andrew Breitbart.

I loved Andrew Breitbart and he was my friend. He died today of a heart attack at the age of 43. He leaves behind a wife, four children and generations of intellectual heirs determined to pick up the weapons that have fallen from his hands to win the fight for liberty, free markets, secure borders and smaller government.

    I am deeply saddened by this.  I am sorry for his wife and children, I am sorry for his close friends and family, and I am sorry for the loss we all have from this.

    This is so, so sad. The only consolation is that, even in death, he’s exposing how nasty the left is.

    On a positive note: Dah-yum! You’ve lost a ton of weight, haven’t you!

      Here’s the thing about showing people they are nasty — when they feel righteous about hurting you, they don’t care. Cases in point: our dueling political totalisms, the entire Left and the full spectrum of social conservatives. So not only do you not defeat your enemies with this strategy, you wind up multiplying them.

      I’m starting to wonder if the Big Rainbow blog I mentioned in my video is the one that will be revealed on Sunday. Whatever it turns out to be, I’m guessing it will be aimed at showing the Left that the race card expired at noon on Jan. 20, 2009 — just in time for the campaign season.

      About the weight — yes! Thank you! I’ve lost about 67 pounds so far. I still have a ways to go to get to my target percentage of body fat, which is a better metric for improving your health than measuring your weight, but I’m in the normal weight range for my height now.

    I am feeling low today, but I find watching this helps (a bit)  

    As for the Daily Kossack’s plan to get Westboro Baptist Church to protest his funeral?  I am pretty sure Andrew would say:  Bring it on!  He would love the fact they revealed how vile they were.  

    I wish this was all an elaborate hoax and Andrew Breitbart will surprise us in October with a bunch of great stuff.   Sadly that is not the case.

    I will miss him dearly. He was so very good for America, very good for all of us….
