Sarah Palin on the Legacy of Andrew Breitbart

Sarah Palin picks up the mantle of a fallen hero at Breitbart.com: “With the death of Breitbart, the conservative movement didn’t just lose a General – we lost an entire Special Forces Division. But he didn’t leave us without the tools and the knowledge we need to fight.”

Breitbart’s mission, she says, like hers, was not just to expose liberal corruption–it was to protect the innocent targets of its malevolence:

Is it any wonder Breitbart titled his autobiography “Righteous Indignation” when you consider his deep-seated sense of justice and fair play? He was on the side of the little guy and ready to run to the aid of those who needed it. He possessed that old fashioned virtue of courage, compassion, and decency that we once called chivalry. He inspired that in others.

One of her readers was so inspired he posted this comment: “All joking aside, the only explanation to the hatred that liberal show toward their opponents is “evilness”. Many liberals won’t even try to debate a conservative, especially one with strong Christian values. The take to name calling and lying rather than discuss issues. These liberals frequently taken on traits of Satan himself!”

Richard Hofstadter, as always, saw what was happening half a century ago: “Since what is at stake is always a conflict between absolute good and absolute evil,” he wrote in The Paranoid Style in American Politics, “The the quality needed is not a willingness to compromise but the will to fight things out to a finish.”

And fight they will.

  1. Like the teenager that has discovered their world has completely come to an end because they didn’t get their way and now HATE their parents I’m left to laugh and worry at the same time. Those are strong words and emotions that can bring out the worst in some. Spec Warfare is left to the real battlefield and the covert nature and tactics used are what make them dangerous to the enemy. We as Americans are not each others enemies. This is a reply to what I read above, I didn’t wake up with lasting enmity in my heart for any that has a different opinion than mine. If we don’t turn the rhetoric down someone is going to get hurt. Nothing good can come from this sort of vitriol. I’m a Christian, I love all.

  2. Well, in this case one to debate and two others to keep a close eye on the conservative completely swamped by paranoia.
