Andrew Breitbart, thank you.

I don’t know many South Africans that knew of Andrew Breitbart. He was only 43 when he died a few days ago of natural causes. I hope in future, more people including South Africans, will become aware of the phenomenal impact he had on people’s lives.

I was especially touched by this youtube video posted by a young teenager (!) from America to pay tribute to Andrew Breitbart because it expressed my own sense of loss in the wake of his death. I’ll be searching for more conservatives like Breitbart on the internet that have the ability to reach people to the same extent that he did. But to tell the truth, he has some pretty big shoes to fill.

One of Andrew Breitbart’s best qualities, in his own words, was the in-depth knowledge of politics in America that he researched using the internet. He was able to express his unique views using the internet as a tool, despite the enormous effort in the mainstream media to silence him simply because they did not approve of any opinion that was contrary to their narrative. I can only make observations about people, in general, and won’t get drawn into conspiracy theories. Anyway, I was astounded to see the extent that the media was willing to go to, to avoid cold, hard facts.

After Andrew Breitbart provided accounts of his own experience as someone inside the American media complex, for the first time it was easy to understand the extent and nature of its corruption. My new insight, as the result of Breitbart’s influence, gave birth to a stubborn rebellion against exposure to the mainstream media, including Hollywood. I will not be brainwashed. Thank you, Andrew Breitbart.
