Yesterday would have been Andrew Breitbart’s 44th birthdate. I admit I had not followed him all that much before watching his speech at CPAC last year, and I am kicking myself for that. However, in the 11 months since his unexpected death, I had been looking at all the videos and articles I could find on him, and even requested (and gotten) his book “Righteous Indignation” for Christmas.
In “Righteous Indignation”, he had written a “Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Revolutionaries” where he lays out the rules which ever conservative activist needs to do in order to fight the left and also even those on our own side now. I mention those on our own side because of what happened during the last election cycle where many did not vote for Romney because of one reason or another. As Andrew said at CPAC last year (which had been my motto throughout the 2012 election season), “If you’re not for this candidate, more than shame on you; you’re on the other side” In fact, take a listen to his words for yourself:
Over the next 14 shows or so I am going to go through Andrew’s Pragmatic Primer and say just what we could do in order to take back the Senate in 2014 and also possibly the White House in 2016. We had lost those two battles in 2012 but with enough inspiration and know-how we will win the #WAR in the future. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. I say to the left and even to those on our side who cost us the 2012 election, “#ThisMeansWAR!” After all, I think this is what that Andrew Breitbart, that happy warrior, that fearless warrior, would have wanted. This is how I will celebrate his 44th birthdate.
