[ Click above to embiggen: Failed NYC theater actor Bruch Reed and other Tolerant Leftists celebrate the death of Andrew Breitbart some more on Facebook ]
What would Andrew Breitbart do today if he was still alive and had Saturday March 3rd, 2012 to fill with some activity that would drive the Tolerant Left, the Cocktail Party GOP establishment, and the Elite Media absolutely BONKERS?
I’ve actually gone to the trouble of writing “What would Andrew Breitbart do today?” on a notecard that I’ve taped to my bathroom mirror. I highly encourage you to do the same — because it’s a marvelous reminder that every day is precious and that the gift you’ve been given of waking up today and having the opportunity to do something interesting, exciting, and/or important with it is a gift you should not squander.
I’d like to ask you for a personal favor today — and it’s something that I’m personally very bad at so if it’s a struggle for you, too, don’t feel bad because I’m right there with you. Sometime today, though, I’d like you to think of a friend who you know is very interested in politics…but someone you might not speak to often or get together with all that regularly. I’d love it more than anything if you gave that person a call and had a chat today — about what Andrew Breitbart’s life work meant to you. At some point, introduce the idea to your friend that perhaps the two of you could carry a little bit of Breitbart’s spirit forward, by finding ways to be a little “Breitbart” yourselves…and to maybe become involved somehow in the Resistance efforts that General Breitbart very much lead — which continue after his passing.
Have you ever seen people who go to the gym together and spot each other during workouts…or who meetup at the mall to walk together for exercise…or who help each other out by being in the same carpool group or whatever?
Have you ever considered finding a “buddy” like this — focused specifically on the political world? Think about how fun it would be to have a go-to person who you could always call up on short notice and ask, “Hey, there’s a speaker I want to hear so would you like to go with me?” or “Would you want to head down to the Board of Elections meeting and demand to know why they still let dead people vote in this state?”.
I think one of the things that’s kept you from becoming a political mystery-solving, corruption-busting, gadfly like Andrew Breitbart is the simple fact that you’ve lacked a Scarecrow to your Mrs. King, a Cagney to your Lacy, or a David Addison to your Maddie Hayes. Feel free to insert whatever sort of “buddy” you’ve always felt lacking in the above…and then think of a friend who could fill that role.
The greatest thing about Andrew Breitbart was that he had no superpowers…and that he was an ordinary guy at heart. He had not fancy degrees. He did not come from great wealth. He didn’t have anyone running cover for him or handing him things on platters. He just had smarts, creativity, a sterling work ethic, and great, personal drive to seek the truth and instill absolute holy terror into the Tolerant Left, the Cocktail Party Establishment, and the Elite Media.
You might not think about this every day, but you are, like Andrew, one of God’s great creations. You’re alive today because your parents, and your grandparents, and all their parents and grandparents before them had something special enough to ultimately produce YOU…and God selected you to be alive TODAY because he put inside you something special…just like he did with Andrew. You might not be as bombastic as he was, or as adept at utilizing the Interwebs, or as much of a prodigy in terms of driving Leftists insane…but you are here today — reading a political website on a Saturday for crying out loud — because YOU were chosen to be here when America needed you the most.
You also just so happen to be in the possession of like-minded friends who share everything above with you.
You just haven’t connected the dots yet to see that YOU are America’s secret weapon against the Left…and that YOU and your friends are what the nation’s counting on to turn the tide between now and election day.
There have been so many times when I’ve thought of closing down this site and attempting to get my old life back: it’s a huge expense, it makes me a nonstop target for crazy people who want to silence me, and it takes at least 10 hours a day to research, write, edit, and maintain. Every time I’ve ever wanted to quit, however, I sit down and pray about it and the same exact thought comes into my head…that what if I stopped doing this and the site went dark for good and the day afterwards was the day that someone out there would have read something on the site that inspired that person to get off the couch, put down the Pepsi, and DO SOMETHING very Breitbart-like that would have initiated a chain of events that would have defeated Barack Obama and brought down both the Democrats and the Cocktail Party GOP establishment?
I really see my role in all of this as the guy at the modern equivalent of a Morse Code machine…tapping out a message to someone out there, wholly unknown to me…in the firm belief that it’s a message that person needs to hear.
I have never understood why other conservative sites don’t do this — and I don’t know why they spend all their time bloviating and opining and often squabbling over this that or the other…instead of DOING SOMETHING or encouraging their readers to DO SOMETHING. You know, the way Andrew Breitbart did about a dozen and a half interesting and important things every day before lunch — with a Round Two before dinner no doubt. Andrew’s earned himself a place in the history books as one of the Tea Party Americans who became a General in the American Resistance. It’s my hope that someone reading this not only takes Andrew’s place someday, but exceeds him in every way, finding a way to do triple the damage he ever did to the Left.
I think you have what it takes to be that person…it’s just a matter of tapping into that. So, I’ll keep tapping away at this keyboard until you find the gifts God gave you and figure out how to use them. In the meantime, I’ll keep throwing every idea I can think of out there to inspire you…and I will rope in absolutely everyone I know to help in that (whether they like it or not sometimes). Maybe you can start roping in your friends and family too, and start seeing every day you’re gifted with as a chance to drive the Tolerant Left crazy and rattle the Cocktail Party like nobody’s business.
It’s not fair, but this is your watch, folks. It was God’s plan that you’d be here in 2012 when America needed you most. Some kind of strange chain of events led you to be here today, reading these words, typed out with the hope that you think on them today and figure out what you’re going to do this week to be a little bit “Breitbart” in your own way.
If you’re so inclined, I’d love to hear some ideas on just what, exactly, you could do in that spirit. If you’re too shy to chime in, that’s okay. Say a prayer for Andrew this weekend at some point, and include your thoughts in that so maybe he’ll hear them up there too. I bet it would make him feel great to know that not only is he missed like crazy but that YOU have decided to pick up a few flames from his torch and carry those forward for him.
What else is on your mind this weekend?
