The most important Conservative of our time never to hold office

Because he understood the American left and their methods so thoroughly, Andrew Breitbart was our time’s most important conservative never to hold office. His drive, his creativity, and his wry self-confidence – in the face of the endless attacks on his character – stand as an example to all who would challenge America’s dominant cultural elite.

The incomparable Andrew Breitbart is gone, at the age of 43 – killed, in part, by his intense love of liberty, his non-stop concern for America – leaving behind a wonderful wife and four children. Andrew could have been just another comfortable Brentwood professional, anonymous in a shallow, liberal-minded materialism.

Adopted and raised in relative opulence in west Los Angeles, Andrew graduated from Tulane University in 1991 with a degree in American studies, which he said wasn’t very American, nor involved much in the way of studies. He learned the foundations of moral relativism and was steeped in cultural Marxism, graduating, as he said, “with few skills and less motivation to work” than he had when he finished high school.

Degree in hand, Andrew returned to California only to have his conservative-minded father cut him off for his aimlessness. He found himself waiting tables, serving his rapidly advancing school friends. Half a year after Andrew’s graduation, Clarence Thomas, nominated to the US supreme court, faced a difficult series of confirmation hearings on Capitol Hill. Andrew, ever the angry liberal then, looked forward to seeing Thomas get “taken down”. Instead, he saw a series of white elite senators – Teddy Kennedy, Howard Metzenbaum and Joe Biden – fail to deliver the goods against Thomas.

Equipped in college with a highly-honed sense of political correctness, Andrew engaged the leftist deconstruction he’d learned – to come to a troubling conclusion about the nature of the American left. A year later, he saw the same privileged elite who’d pilloried Justice Thomas anoint Bill Clinton president and realized something was horribly wrong.
