Seven years ago today, Andrew Breitbart collapsed on a Brentwood, Los Angeles sidewalk and died of massive heart failure. While he was taken from his family and this world far too soon, his memory and legacy are alive and well in America’s media and cultural landscape.
So much has happened in the seven years since Andrew’s passing that it’s worth looking back on one of the moments that I believe galvanized the movement which eventually led to election of President Donald Trump.
The clip below is an excerpt from my documentary Hating Breitbart, filmed in Nashville, TN at the one and only National Tea Party Convention in February of 2010.
In this clip, Andrew declares war against the mainstream media on behalf of himself, James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles, and every decent American member of the much maligned and nationally vilified Tea Party movement.
His comments were made in the wake of the institutional left’s dishonest “Fake News” coverage of the James O’Keefe & Hannah Giles undercover investigation into ACORN.
The journalism performed by O’Keefe, Giles and Breitbart was so devastating that ACORN lost all of its funding and was dissolved. Yet, the mainstream media not only failed to adequately investigate ACORN, they disgustingly investigated and attacked James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles, and Andrew Breitbart.
Andrew had enough. America had enough. The war was on.
If Andrew’s words sound familiar, they should. President Trump dove head first into the surf of the same battle against a dishonest press, riding colossal waves of outrage all the way to the White House.
