United in Hate: The Left Dances on Breitbart’s Grave

Pages: 1 2

But, you say, these are just Occupy movement losers venting their powerlessness from their parents’ basements, right? They don’t represent the sentiments of the more responsible mainstream left, do they?

CNN attacked Breitbart within hours of his death. Former NAACP leader Julian Bond wrote that Breitbart’s passing “disproves the adage that only the good die young.” A political blogger for Rolling Stone titled his celebratory memorial, “Andrew Breitbart: Death of a Douche.” (For the many of you unfamiliar with it, Rolling Stone is ostensibly a music magazine, Teen Beat for aging hipsters, that ceased being relevant and cutting-edge once gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson stopped contributing regularly).

What accounts for this irrational hatred, this ecstatic defilement of the dead? As FrontPage editor Jamie Glazov notes in his important book United in Hate: The Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror, the left shares a nihilistic impulse for death and destruction – of themselves as well as others. This impetus is like the shadow side of philosopher Henri Bergson’s concept of a propulsive life force, the élan vital – it’s an élan mortel, coursing through the left’s dark heart.

At bottom, leftists cherish their vision of a perfect world, and hate humankind for standing in the way of it. They will not hesitate to sacrifice tens of millions to draw nearer to their utopian fantasies, which is why they secretly (or not-so-secretly) worship genocidal totalitarians. “The death of one man is a tragedy,” Stalin once remarked. “The death of millions is a statistic.” The left’s beloved poster boy, vile coward Ché Guevara, once expressed his disappointment that Cuba was never able to use nuclear weapons against New Yorkers: “We must proceed along the path of liberation even if this costs millions of atomic victims.”

The left will gladly enforce mass sterilization and forced abortions for the sake of the planet. They will happily eliminate 25 million capitalists, as Bill Ayers and the Weatherman estimated, and consign many more to starvation or gulags in pursuit of their people’s paradise. They will forgive, even cheer, even submit themselves to the blood-soaked excesses of Stalin, Mao, and the French Revolution as a necessary purgation on the road to their ideal. As Glazov writes, “[the left] loves murderous nihilism and lives vicariously through its deadly manifestations.”

Totalitarianism is neat and orderly. Freedom is messy and imperfect. It values and empowers individuals, which the left cannot tolerate. The freedom-loving Breitbart not only threatened the left’s collective vision, but he was also exposing their hypocrisy and hate. That’s why the left asserts ludicrously that he was worse than those icons of evil, Hitler, Saddam Hussein, and bin Laden.

When the left claims to celebrate the death of no man, remember Andrew Breitbart, and remember that they are lying. They celebrate death itself.

    While I abhore the leftist's comments (and the Left itself, LOL) about AB I have turned a personal corner about my own tribe insomuch as there is a lot of bile being spewed from our side as well. FPM isn't so bad but some of the others ( no names mentioned here) are pretty outrageous. I do understand the impluse and sometimes there is humor both intentional and other wise but I for one would urge my brother's in arms to try and tone it down a bit.

  • Tanstaafl

    The truth cannot be repeated enough.

  • kentatwater

    Even in death, Andrew Breitbart (zt"l) is exposing the malignant hatred that is the modern American left.

    He was just that good.

    • Questions

      The Left — or a good part of it — is exposing itself in this case.

  • maturin20

    It does not make you a "leftist" to despise the insipid writing and flaming nothingness of Andrew Breitbart any more than it makes your a "rightist" to despise the bloated and smug outrage of Keith Olbermann. Furthermore, it is not an accomplishment to be a leftist or a rightist, it is merely a set of political opinions. Am I more prone to liking Twinkies because I listen to Rush Limbaugh? Or do I prefer bean sprouts because I listen to Rachel Maddow? No. Actually, I don't listen to either of those slobs, but if I do or I do not, it is not some kind of political accomplishment. I think this author is way off base in trying to corral people into a political pen because they reject the idiotic gesticulations of this recently deceased media clown.

    • reader

      Nothing speaks louder of nothingness than a poster marking hiw own posts with a lonely plus. That's your maturin – the very definition of nothingness.

      • maturin20

        Are you trying to say that the "voting" mechanism on the comments here is cosmically significant in some way?

        • Western Canadian

          Are you trying to say that your ignorant and hate filled drivel is signivicant in some way, other than how it exposes the worthlessness of the hard left???

          • maturin20

            "Hard left?!" That is antisemitic. Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, Leibknecht, Luxemburg were all the hardest Leftists and they were all Jews. The Rosenbergs were the hardest leftists! This is very antisemitic to say that the hard left is worthless. You are saying that very many Jews are worthless.

          • ComputerJockey

            You, sir, are a liar. Marx was a Christian (in pursuit of a divinity degree, at one point in his life). Lenin was baptized. There is no evidence that Leibknecht was Jewish.

          • maturin20

            Which point in his life?

            Was the baptism witnessed?

            Maybe he was deep cover.

          • Oleg

            What about Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Ho Chi MInn, and Fidel Castro, were they Jewish as well?

          • maturin20

            Lenny Bruce Jewish, maybe.

      • kentatwater

        Nothing speaks louder of nothingness than a poster marking hiw own posts with a lonely plus.

        That it indulges in such childish behavior is pitiful. That it then protests the voting mechanism's merits, brings it to the level of farce.

        (Ah, look. The same thumb it uses to self-apply pluses, it also uses to apply minuses. Cosmic significance, indeed!)

        • maturin20

          That it quotes Silence of the Lambs is amusing.

          • kentatwater

            Keep the lotion to yourself.

          • maturin20

            As the bishop said to the actress.

          • kentatwater

            I'll have to take your word for that.

        • Western Canadian

          Lambs not the first use of that quote……

          • maturin20

            Good to know. Wikipedia needs particularists like you.

          • Western Canadian

            No, I do not want to have you as a friend. You are ignorant, and filled with hate.

    • Supreme_Galooty

      Thank you for so eloquently expressing your sediments.

      • maturin20

        Thanks. I use a french press, not this Israeli one.

    • mrbean

      Maturin likes the mindless tuna fish breath Rachel Maddow. That sexually confused hag always has a permanent sneer on her face and it is a toss up between her and Keith Olberman who is the worst journalist in the business.

      • maturin20

        That is the most anti-semitic thing I have ever heard!

        • kentatwater

          Oh? Stopped listening to the voices in your head?

          • maturin20

            You are just being derogatory to Jewish women by slinging that old canard that they are sexually confused hags with permanent sneers on their faces. This is the old saw that Jewish women are sexually liberal due to ugliness. Some people find a levantine sneer-like expression very beautiful, and in any case it is racist to ridicule someone for features she inherited from her parents.

          • kentatwater

            Ah. No. I see that you are not only still listening to the voices, but you are taking notes.

          • Christian West

            Some people find a levantine sneer-like expression very beautiful, and in any case it is racist to ridicule someone for features she inherited from her parents.

            LOL! Can't you see that what you are actually saying is that the ugly looking people are in fact a race? No? You can't? Well, as I said above, you ARE a cretin.

          • maturin20

            Pfft. Someone needs to stop reading Margaret Sanger.

          • Western Canadian

            Nice one!

    • ELiz

      Olberman and his media cronies express their political belief; Breitbart merely exposed the Left and other evil wrongdoers. It's not that hard to see!

      • maturin20

        Media cronies?!?!?! That's anti-semitic.

        • Western Canadian

          No, you need to take your meds.

          • maturin20

            Everyone knows "media cronies" is a euphemistic slur for Jews.

        • Western Canadian

          Actually, in order to think of that comment as anti-semetic, you would first have to be fool enough to buy into drivel like the protocols of the…. oh, wait, you ARE that much of a fool. Explains a lot.

          • maturin20

            Are you trying to dismiss my accusation of anti-semitism? That is double antisemitic, if not exponentially antisemitic, or Cantorially antisemitic!

  • Rifleman

    Good point, it’s pretty obvious the left’s ethics and propriety are entirely situational. They can’t escape their own blatant hypocrisy.

  • Supreme_Galooty

    Today's American leftists are intimate bedfellows of Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Hitler, Mussolini, et alia. There is NO difference between them, and when you consider the aforementioned leftist thugs were responsible for the brutal murder of over 125,000,000 of their fellow citizens, it is neither surprising nor difficult to understand their viciousness – applied liberally in the cause of the "Greater Good."

    • Questions

      Well, we are getting a bit premature. The American Left hasn't killed since the Nyack, N.Y. bank robbery of 1981. Mainly they censor.

      • Supreme_Galooty

        They haven't achieved the kind of power that Stalin or Mao wielded. If they ever do, all bets for decency, propriety, and respect for human life are off.

  • YetWave

    While diplomacy is 'war by other means', politics is bereft of any such politeness.
    "Like other conservative political pugilists such as David Horowitz, Breitbart was a former leftist himself who understood well that politics is war, and that the left fights to win."
    There has been no other conservative media presence that so exposed the Obama agenda as the nihilistic, statist driven machine that it truly is.
    For every rabbit punch the left delivers at the hand of David Axelrod or Debbie Wassermen Schultz, the right needs a successor to Andrew Breitbart to retaliate with a smack to the kidney.

  • ASG

    MY favortie was right after Dick Cheney went in for open heart surgery and they were already coming out with the "Hope he ends up in hell" drivel. These Progressives have no shame, and they never will.

  • mrethiopian

    All the GOP can do now a days is wine about something, the left is picking on Rush, the left is picking on Breitbart, the left called us a bad name. Its time for the Right to grow a spine and stop winning like spoiled children not getting their way. People are going to stop taking the right seriously if all they can do is cry about spilled milk , we have so many other issues in this country that need strong American understanding and know-how, 2012 is close at hand; wake up and act your age.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    What could one expect of the left, certainly not a right action…………..where most conservatives take no
    pleasure in the death of political enemies certain people that are responsible for mass murder and are
    dead, well nothing wrong with being relieved the monster is gone. Andrew Breitbart to be compared to
    such as Hitler etc., is and exposure of the idiocy of the left, complete stupidity, there is no comparison
    unless it is understood that the left fears exposure as much as being a prisoner of the SS or Gestapo
    who they would emulate with joy. I hope the work of challenge and exposure continues with the
    Conservative movement to clean house of the leftist frauds……………………………………William

    I think I saw it on VH1's Behind the Revolution.

    My only regret is that I mentioned AIDS, and not some other, far-less-treatable disease AB would've had to have fvcked into his entire family.

  • James

    Breitbart said some despicable things about Ted Kennedy right after he died. What goes around…

  • Chris Nichols

    Go google the 25 points of the NSDAP, otherwise known as the National Socialist German Workers party and tell me how a political movement that believed in Government provided pensions and healthcare, public education, abortion euthenasia and gun control is right wing. Do you still think that Fascism is some kind of libertarian conservative movement that believed in Capitalism, private property rights, religious freedom and the right to bear arms? If you do, you are so comprehensively ignorant that I really shouldn't waste my time with a sock puppet like you:

    “Everything inside the State, nothing outside the State.” Benito Mussolini

    "We are socialists, we are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions." –Adolf Hitler

  • Supreme_Galooty

    Try not to be so obviously obtuse. Fascism was the veritable BIRTHPLACE of the "Greater Good" branch of the American Liberal Movement. In the twenties and thirties every notable, distinguished leftist in America honored Mussolini summa cum laude. And also, to a lesser extent Hitler. That love affair broke up when Stalin called Hitler a "right wing" Socialist, and Hitler's pogroms made leftists edgy. So I suppose on a scale of zero to one hundred, Stalin – at 5 – could easily call Hitler – at 9 – a "right winger" with some degree of accuracy. The fact remains that they were both extreme leftists just like MOST contemporary American leftists. Our venerable leftists today have maintained their love affair with Stalin in spite of the millions of people he murdered in the name of the "Greater Good."

  • Jim_C

    Yep, we're big, big fans of Stalin. Still can't stop talking about him. When we get together, it's usually "10 million dead? What stopped him from really getting-r-done? We need to get Obama on that, stat!"

  • Supreme_Galooty

    On a scale of zero to one hundred, zero is total government control – Totalitarianism. One hundred is total lack of government – Anarchy. My subjective ratings: Stalin 5, Hitler 9, Obama 5, Hillary 10, Bill 15 to 35 depending, G.W. Bush 35, Newt Gingrich 45, Thomas Jefferson 65, likewise James Madison, Benjamin Franklin 70. I don't know anyone over 70, although I'm sure they're lurking out there somewhere. The entire political argument in this country up until just a few years ago took place entirely on the left of center (50). Now there are increasing voices presenting arguments between 50 and 70. It's about time.

  • Supreme_Galooty

    Ron Paul would be around 65. It is not the LEADERS who would make the country free at 75 to 80. It is the PEOPLE who, at 75 to 80, would not tolerate the likes of George Bush OR Obama. Consider the differences between a strong Society sitting on the opposite end of the teeter-totter from the insatiably greedy State.
