Remembering Breitbart

I'm not a blogger of note, and I never met Andrew Breitbart.  Others have written far more moving tributes, and more meaningful tributes, than I could.  But the conservative movement has suffered a tremendous loss with his passing.

However, I am certain that he would wish for people to carry on his tradition of challenging false narratives, maintaining intellectual honesty, and supporting all who are helping to advance the truth.  I am reminded of the famous line by Jimmy Valvano, "Don't give up.  Don't ever give up."  Well, if the response of the blogosphere is anything to go by over the last few days, no one is giving up.  Andrew's work was not done, because it never could be done.

What he was, was the Prometheus of the conservative movement.  He brought the vital spark that first pierced the darkness of the liberal media oligarchy, giving rise to hundreds and thousands of new flames to burn away the lies.

I am Andrew Breitbart.  And so are you.
