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.
