War

In many ways, I took Satchel Paige to heart. I rarely look back short term, for fear they may be gaining on us. But we’ve lost some real heroes along the way.  Andrew Breitbart is one of them. What he would have done to the press in the last couple of years is beyond imagining. For instance.

Andrew Breitbart loathed the mainstream media. If you have any doubt about this fact, watch the following videos. He was disgusted by them and wasn’t shy about saying it.

He called out the liars and frauds to their faces.

He knew, to his core, the mendacity pointed at ideological enemies of Leftist dogma. He ran flank for Tea Party leaders who were being investigated by every government department including the IRS, FBI, EPA, and more. He loved these people who the elites in both parties hated. He defended them.

He protected those who were willing to be apostates to the leftist cause including guys like Brandon Darby who thwarted a Lefty terrorist group who planned a bombing at the Republican National Convention, and Milo Yiannopoulos, a flamboyant anti-feminist gay man.

He promoted the brave and gave them platforms including Dana Loesch, Ben Shapiro, James O’Keefe, and Hannah Giles. He was famous for finding talented and fair-minded people and developing their gifts. [Full disclosure: He promoted my work and helped build my consulting business before I came to The American Spectator.]

Andrew was nothing if not righteously indignant. One of my most prized possessions is the galley copy of Righteous Indignation that he gave me to read before I helped him promote his work. It was my great joy to do so. A naturally talented writer, Andrew’s book is a story worth reading if you haven’t yet.

Most of all, Andrew was prescient. He saw the corruption in the media. He saw the utter malevolence of their intentions. He saw them as the enemy. I try to imagine the rage he’d be unleashing today, if he were here to see the media’s constant war against the truth. Andrew’s antipathy to the media was wholly rational. Many on his own side thought he was too extreme. They were wrong.

Andrew was right.

Why has it taken so long for the Right, and anyone interested in truth, to see the truth about the Lefty-dominated culture? Why are the purported “Bulwark” guardians of the Right defending the Left and the media, purveyors of falsehoods and slander?

One answer is that they hate Donald Trump. Even more, they hate the voters who voted for Donald Trump. In this way, their aims are perfectly aligned with the Left. Destroying Trump and his supporters is a shared goal, truth be damned.

Keep reading Andrew Breitbart Was Right About the Media, by Melisssa Mackenzie, watch the videos, Andrew was right then, and he is right now.

We, the conservatives are starting to win, in America, in Britain, in Brazil, In Italy, Poland, Austria, even in Germany. This is no time for cold feet. Andrew is still right.

War, it is.

    He was a young man at the time that I felt such euphoria when the wall came down. And he realized before I did that…”…the Soviets spent millions of dollars infiltrating your media. Just because the Soviet Union went away doesn’t mean these people have gone away. They are still there.” — Yegor Gaidar (don’t know date of quote)
    And our media is all the propaganda channels you can think of…and maybe more, i.e. part of government and even some churches (church leadership, anyways).

    Years ago I read that quote and remembered where I read it and where to find it. Interesting, to me, google it and it not there. First time I’ve tried that. Maybe was never one to find on internet.
    Get such as this at multiple sites…

    Missing Andrew Breitbart, I can’t help but wish that he were here to take on the Communist media complex and the ruling class like a bull in a China shop.  A force to be reckoned with and always ten steps ahead.

      Made mine too, Denise. How we miss him, everyday, and how we still need his voice. I can’t count the ways. Well, he speaks through those he brought up, and he speaks through us, as well.
