That About Wraps It Up For David Frum

Andrew Breitbart died today. But he took David Frum's last shred of credibility with him.

In fact, it’s hard even to use the word “issues” in connection with Andrew Breitbart. He may have used the words “left” and “right,” but it’s hard to imagine what he ever meant by those words. He waged a culture war minus the “culture,” as a pure struggle between personalities. Hence his intense focus on President Obama: only by hating a particular political man could Breitbart bring any order to his fundamentally apolitical emotions.

Because President Obama was black, and because Breitbart believed in using every and any weapon at hand, Breitbart’s politics did inevitably become racially coded. Breitbart’s memory will always be linked to his defamation of Shirley Sherrod and his attempt to make a national scandal out of back payments to black farmers: the story he always called “Pigford” with self-conscious resonance.

Yet it is wrong to see Breitbart as racially motivated. Had Breitbart decided he hated a politician whose ancestors came over on the Mayflower, Breitbart would have been just as delighted to attack that politicians with a different set of codes. The attack was everything, the details nothing.

...

And this is where it becomes difficult to honor the Roman injunction to speak no ill of the dead. It’s difficult for me to assess Breitbart’s impact upon American media and American politics as anything other than poisonous. When one of the leading media figures of the day achieves his success by his giddy disdain for truth and fairness—when one of our leading political figures offers to his admirers a politics inflamed by rage and devoid of ideas—how to withhold a profoundly negative judgment on his life and career?

Especially when that career was so representative of his times?

We live in a time of political and media demagoguery unparalleled since the 19th century. Many of our most important public figures have gained their influence and power by inciting and exploiting the ugliest of passions—by manipulating fears and prejudices—by serving up falsehoods as reported truth. In time these figures will one by one die. What are we to say of this cohort, this group, this generation? That their mothers loved them? That their families are bereaved? That their fans admired them and their employees treated generously by them? Public figures are inescapably judged by their public actions. When those public actions are poisonous, the obituary cannot be pleasant reading.

We shall say of them that their legacy consists of more than three words -- "Axis," "of," and "Evil."

We shall say of them that they were warriors, and not bitter Vichyites mourning their loss of -- loss of? was it ever even possessed? -- relevance and reach.

From the dawn of time the primitives in the woods envied and feared those with the Magic of Fire.

David Frum exceeded Andrew Breitbart in one measure only, span of life.

But not in life.

David Frum will die as he lived, gray, timid, small, spiteful, cramped in thought and bent in spirit, slender of talent and obese in self-regard, unloved, unnoticed, unremembered and unread.

Better to live outrageously for only a short spell than to hiss from the shadows, content to live within the niggling license of Master's Leash.


If Andrew Were Alive... and I mentioned to him that David Frum had lit into him, I have to imagine he'd say, "Who now?"

I'd then say "oh, he's been making his rent off of 'Axis of Evil' for ten years," and Andrew would say, "Oh, okay. I liked the 'of.' "

"The Man in the Arena." A commenter recalls his TR.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

What was truly charismatic about Breitbart was his never-ending enthusiasm and energy. He spoke fast because he thought fast. He changed topics quickly because he had six or seven plans in mind at any one time.

He actually did things. He was instinctual. Athletes cannot afford the deliberation of thought. They move by instinct and training and muscle memory. They act.

Why did Breitbart sign a lease for a pricey townhouse in DC? Because, he said, "it feels mischievous." It felt mischievous to establish and Embassy of citizen empowerment in the capital of statist overreach.

He had ten plans a month. He accomplished five of them a month. He acted.

He took over the Weiner press conference because it felt like something he ought to do.

He was brazen. He was bold. The right had no more enthusiastic champion and the left had no more implacable foe.

On the other hand there's David Frum.

He writes blog-posts for a liberal rag which doesn't even get published on paper. His most notable "conservative" colleague at this very non-prestigious posting is Meghan McCain, who's primary mission in life to prove that Rick Santorum spoke too charitably when demeaning the value of college.

Breitbart was a busy man. If his heart did not kill him, one day an airplane mishap would. He was constantly on planes, rallying the troops in this city or that. Agitating. Moving. Changing. Persuading. Defending. Attacking. Rebutting. Remaking.

On the other hand, as I say, there's David Frum.

As I type this, Breitbart is more alive than David Frum has ever been.

I doubt very much that will change as the years march on.

It is the nature of the rat to envy the lion.

We should not fault the rat overly for this. For what else can the rat do?

But we should say that there are lions, and there are rats. And they are easily distinguishable.

And they are as different from each other as the sun is from the mirror that reflects it.

Scavengers have their place. They serve a function.

But scavengers know their place.

And scavengers only challenge the lion when it lies, safely, dead.

Breitbart had two things that men envy: Guts, and drive.

I almost can't blame Frum for resenting Breitbart for having balls.

I resented Breitbart for having such balls. It's natural to resent your betters.

It is, however, an embarrassment to commit petty jealousies to print.

David Frum had a revelation today.

But sometimes it is wiser to conceal than to reveal.

In time, Andrew Breitbart might have aged into greater self-control and a higher concept of public service. Premature death deprived him of the chance at redemption often sought and sometimes found by people who have done wrong in their lives and work.

“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter
your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in
their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect
your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long
and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death
song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a
friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all
people and grovel to none.

When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the
joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies
only in yourself.Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise
ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.

When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are
filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep
and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a
different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

~ Chief Tecumseh (Poem from Act of Valor the Movie)

OGod, you are my God, I seek you,

as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory.
Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands and call on your name. My soul is satisfied as with a rich feast,
and my mouth praises you with joyful lips
when I think of you on my bed,
and meditate on you in the watches of the night;
for you have been my help,
and in the shadow of your wings I sing for joy.
My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me. But those who seek to destroy mylife
shall go down into the depths of the earth;
they shall be given over to the power of the sword,
they shall be prey for jackals.
But the king shall rejoice in God;
all who swear by him shall exult,
for the mouths of liars will be stopped.

Frum defending Pigford is especially ludicrous and deceptive. Millions of dollars in rape-a-nations payments to black "farmers' who never worked a day as a farmer. Pigford is a scandal that political correctness has made taboo. These "farmers" were alleged to have been discouraged from taking up farming because of institutional racism.

But we were supposed to feel all tender and gooey and heart-warmed inside because she later realized that violating people's civil rights, in the manner in which she doled out Other People's Money (or not), might sorta have been not so great of an idea.

But Andrew Breitbart was the unforgivable bad guy for airing the video.

86 Even as a dead body, Breitbart has more class, relevance, and intellectual heft than that fat piece of shit Frum. It must really be a sad life when the only time you can safely hurl smug, childish invective at an opponent is when said opponent is freshly deceased. David Frum is a
husk of a shell of a man when compared to Andrew. He knows this, and therein lies his bitterness.

88 The whole Shirley Sherrod thing amazes me.

She admitted to allowing her racial bias to determine what she did at work. Whether or not she revisited that decision for one individual, if she were white that would have been it - she would have been fired and unemployable.

But because she is black, racism is ok.

And of course the whole point of Breitbart's video is that Sherrod was cheered when she talked about how she was making decisions based on race.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who
points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds
could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is
actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and
blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and
again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but
who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms,
the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at
the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who
at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so
that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who
neither know victory nor defeat."

101 Breitbart posted the Shirley Sherrod video to highlight THE REACTION of the NAACP audience. The USDA changed the focus by firing her. Should they have fired her? I don't know - she did say that she did not help that white farmer. But it was probably not right to fire her years later after she said she regretted that action.

153 Frum misses the point about Breitbart. Breitbart's fought against the forces attempting to undermine support for capitalism.

Instapundit frequently invokes this Heinlein quote:

"Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as “bad luck.”

That is the "culture" war Breitbart was fighting.

176 Breitbart's children range in age from 4 to 12. All old enough to understand and remember their father, and some old enough to understand the filth spewed at him.

Liberal jackasses love to do things "for the children." I hope that they are made to understand the damage they are doing to these children.

177 From two threads ago, I didn't want it to be lost:

I propose a Daily Breitbart thread, so that even having lost him, we can
still draw on his HUGE BRASS BALLS every single day for inspiration to
fight harder.

I'm just stunned. He wasn't done yet.

Maybe it's God's way of telling us that he worked hard enough, and now it's our turn.

Addendum: and God inspired David Frum to speak just to prove it to us.

178 Frum--constantly changing depending on whose approval he needs at any given moment because he hasn't the courage or conviction to be his own man. Forever hearing the voice from the depths of his very soul telling him the truth that he hopes no one else notices: "You're just not very good at anything."

Breitbart’s memory will always be linked to his defamation of Shirley
Sherrod and his attempt to make a national scandal out of back payments
to black farmers: the story he always called “Pigford” with
self-conscious resonance.

That was a national scandal and it was fraud. And her statements unedited were just about as bad as the statement that were edited. But this is what you get when you attempt to penetrate Blackdemocratium, the densest element on earth.

264 @5 David Frum

The inescapable error is the pretense that contemporary politics are so much worse than the 19th century or that the strident brand of politics espoused by Breitbart is uncalled for. Perhaps you yearn for eternally genteel (not code for gentile, btw) politics. But there were a lot of big disagreements in the 19th century and now that don't deserve resolution by accepting whatever the middling position might be.

You continue in this vein with the pretension that Breitbart needed redemption. Redemption by whom? Redemption by Frum?

When Breitbart got up to speak at Weiner's press conference, I guffawed and thought, "what a jerk!" And politically, he was was a jerk, he strived to be one and relished it. It was a glorious jerkiness. We're all allowed to have our views on a person. But your righteous pretentiousness is unbearable.

It would not surprise me to see some of the nastiness in the primary evaporate as people take stock of the frailty of life and reflect on AB's message during CPAC. If it has that effect, and galvanizes the movement to oust the SCOAMF, then Andrew would be happy.

http://tinyurl.com/7rxvnhp

SE Cupp remembered this note from AB which sums up nicely why he meant so much to us;



Over the course of my five-year friendship with Andrew,
there are so many moments that I’ll always treasure and remember. Most
of them are personal and not for publication. So I think it best to
remember Andrew in his own words. In 2010, I was compiling a list of New
Year’s resolutions from my friends in the business. I asked for his,
and this is what he wrote:
For starters, I’m going to begin being a
lot less forgiving of the treachery, viciousness and duplicity of left
wing totalitarians, especially those in the media, academia and pop
culture, who wield their weapons of political correctness and
intimidation against those with whom they disagree. In addition, I’d
like to be able slip on that old size 4 black cocktail dress by the time
my book, ‘Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World’
comes out in April. So I have a lot of work and sweat ahead of me.

Use the anger you feel to vote against Obama this November. Andrew Brietbart was clear on that message and did not mince words at the last CPAC.

I am not going to read the vile, ignorant, time-wasting comments by the left. It is not worth the anger. We know they are vile. We know they are heartless, as this man left a wife and four young children. They are not worth the seconds of my life to read and imprint on my retinas.

349 Frum's comments are execrable.
What a loathsome self-serving bastard.
To write what he did shows a real pathology.

It is hard to see what the strategy is here. After this, what is Frum going to write? He has moved into the pure fucking nuts category. Will anybody not wearing a tinfoil hat ever take him even a little seriously ever again?

351 The outrage by all of you at Frum's diatribe is universal. But the lesson to be learned here and passed on is one of values, morals and philosophy. We stand for nothing if we don't stand on a philosophy, well thought out, and well articulated , based on values and morals and implimented with principals that reflect those values.
Frum. has. none. of. those.

356 David,

Men like Andrew Breitbart lead from the front. They get into the trenches and fight with their opponents. They gladly take the arrows shot at them by their enemies as they know that they can take it and are protecting those behind them.

Men like you sit with enemy complaining about his leaders while those leaders take the arrows. They do not fight for their beliefs or convictions but bend them to make sure that the enemy will keep them alive longer to serve as their useful idiots. Men like you David make sure that those out front in fighting Liberalism have to watch their backs also as you shoot arrows into their backs.

In short, David you are a fucking crapweasel.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat

Posted by: The Jackhole at March 01, 2012 03:48 PM (nTgAI)

360 I feel so much contempt for Frum. Talk about someone who continually injects poison into the right (conservative and libertarian movements as well as the Republican party) and political discourse in general. Injecting poison, all the while sanctimoniously accusing others of doing so. In that respect, Frum is as Orwellian as Obama on "civility".

One of the great things about AB, as others have said, was his magnetic ability to unite and rally all of us on the right. To fight for the political "right"-- but above all else to fight for what's *right*, the TRUTH. To ruthlessly eviscerate the mendacity, the deceptiveness, the fraudulence of the MSM and politicians/ political institutions alike. A brave and true patriot.

Breitbart was one of the key figures that made me (someone who's always considered herself a "small-l-libertarian", "classical liberal") come to proudly consider myself a *conservative*.

"No labels" Frum, on the other hand, is absolutely repellent to me.

388 Frum's note: surreal. The right fights with one hand tied behind its back, forever worrying about breaking the "rules". In the meantime the left has no compunction about bringing a knife - or a gun if that's what will carry the day - to any fight. Never heard Frum say a word about that. We have ONE guy who understood that sometimes in a fight you really would rather not even have to engage in, you have to be willing to strike the first blow and make it count. And somehow HE is the one deserving of a snotty writeup by Frum when he dies young and leaves a family behind. Like someone said, "Just...wow."

408 Frum had this for Ted Kennedy...

Then came 9/11. Among the murdered was the brave and brilliant
Barbara Olson. Ted asked some friends to help with the deluge of
messages of condolence, and my wife Danielle volunteered for the job.
Among the letters: a lengthy handwritten note by the senator so elegant
and decent, so eloquent and (fascinatingly) written in so beautiful a
hand as to revolutionize one’s opinion of the man who wrote it. It did
not dishonor by ignoring or denying the political differences between
the two families. It fully acknowledged them – and through them
expressed a deeper human awareness of shared mortality, pain, and grief.
Not all chapters of his life revealed it equally, but the senator was a
big soul, and in his last years, he lived his bigness fully. He knew
and he expressed the sorrow of human life, a sorrow so memorably
captured by his brother Robert in a passage of poetry quoted upon
hearing of the murder of Martin Luther King, and engraved thereby in the
American political memory forever:

Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by
drop upon the heart, until, in our own despair, against our will, comes
wisdom through the awful grace of God.

Rest in peace, leader of the liberals.

...ewt Gingrich is the only candidate still in the field who can clearly take on Barack Obama in one-on-one debate and cut through the Obama rhetoric and mystique with hard facts and plain logic.

Nor is this just a matter of having a gift of gab. Gingrich has a far deeper grasp of both the policies and the politics than the other Republican candidates."

the right direction, now move toward _less_ paragraphs, and you'll have
something like self-editing happening, and you might finally land a job
where you actually get paid for ruminating (I wouldn't yet term it
writing, because it rarely gets to an actual point, it just kind of
circles around one without ever landing a punch).

Did the NAACP audience not react approvingly to her racist comments, which was the entire point of the post?

504 Frum confirms, once again, that he is an ignorant, cluelessfool. Breitbart called the Pigford scandal Pigford because that was the name of the case that spawned it, and he spoke of it contemptuously because it was and iscontemptible.Pigford was, and is, a massive fraud on U.S. taxpayers, perpetrated by greedy class-action lawyers and black community "activists" closely associated with Barry Hussein Soetoro/Obama and his Harvard mentor Charles Ogletree.
The multi-billion-dollar payout in the Pigford settlement did not benefit the black farmers who were actually the victims of USDA discrimination (along with white farmers). It benefitted greedy class action lawyers, who artificially inflated the number of class members to include persons who "attempted to farm" between 1983 and 1997. The lawyers, friends of Barry Obama's, did this so that they could make more money for themselves (the bigger the class, the bigger the pay-out to the lawyers). The lawyers gave seminars to blacks on how to make fraudulent claims about "attempting" to farm. The lawyers ended up with millions of dollars in fees, taxpayers ended up paying billions of dollars to every fraud who submitted an affidavit about how they "attempted to farm," and the farmers whom the USDA had actually cheated (both black and white) ended up being ripped off yet again.

513 Yeah, maybe Breitbart would have aged into another Frum (however unlikely) . But I think there's a 100% chance that a lot of the Frums in this world (and there are many) eventually look back and wish they had been (and stayed) a Breitbart (of which there was one).

519 Sadly, tiny little soul that he is, frum falls into the trap of thinking that Conservatives dislike barack obama because he is Black. The truth is that wacky little baracky is just barely brown and he was raised by WHITE FOLKS and a few Indonesian servants. His brown skin tone actually comes more from his Arabian ancestry. He is certainly not a cultural African American. His ugly, angry, and entitled wife may be, but, he is not. No, culturally barack is a stew of third world anti-colonialism flavored with a nasty mix of Communism and Socialism from his grandparents and their radical friends. I do not take either of the obamas skin tone into account with regards to my political opposition to them. Their skin color has benefited them enormously and it provides a Star Trek worthy shield for them to hide behind whenever criticism is raised about them.

545 This is nice (from Fox News):

Breitbart's final tweet, posted shortly before he was reported to have died, typified the combative and blunt tone he took with his online debaters. "I called you a putz cause I thought you were being intentionally disingenuous. If not I apologize," he wrote to the individual he had been arguing with.

That individual, Lamar White, told FoxNews.com in an email that Breitbart was committed to the First Amendment and the "open and free exchange of ideas."

"Although I disagreed with him profoundly on politics and policy, I will always respect and admire his tenacious wit and his willingness to engage others in provocative conversation," White said.

Posted by: Y-not at March 01, 2012 05:31 PM (5H6zj)

546 Dickheads like Frum and Brooks aren't saying it so much.... they're standing up for their culture to which their either aspire or see themselves as members of.... they've defending their culture, their friends, their choices in life, the people they know around them who they believe are doing good works in the name of positiveness and protecting it against those who are too dumb to understand otherwise... not in the game to know the intricacies of how things work.

At this point I have some sympathy when I see things on the public scene that are counter to what I've seen in person... the wacky gyrations of some of those who carry various mantles. Nevertheless, you have to realize that these guys are striving to protect a culture they believe is working for the common good and the common positive. They believe in their culture more than they believe in facts and hand and the persons that represent them.

To them they're protecting territory from E St NW to U St NW and 15th and 19th St NW... and while we're at it let's throw in Woodley Park for good measure... and then NYC Manhattan.

They know the people who work hard... and they want to protect those who are maligned by us outsiders. What they seem to forget is that these policies do have real consequences and that the culture they're trying to protect, while it does work hard, doesn't really have tremendous power on the big issue but rather has a more power than most of us on little issues. None of us here have a control of $5 million or more... Frum and Brooks knows tons of these guys and probalby think that these are well meaning people... the problem is that the machinery of good people doesn't control the rungs of power and politics and this is where they get lost.... the think that their leaders are of them when they just aren't... their leaders are all one-off examples of those who managed to get elected to office by guile and personality.

Sooner you realize Frum and Brooks are fighting as a culture the sooner you realize you have to make them face that culture. They're defending what they believe to be good... they are not defending politics as much as they are defending cultural and personal sets.

577 Frum is a toad; an intellectual midget much like that other Harvard law grad currently impersonating a president. He's long past being relevant to all but the MSM, who only have him on because he's willing to attack conservatives instead of presenting conservative - libertarian arguments in full. To call him a shill would be to give the man too much credit. His pathological jealousy and resentment of a veritable titan of accomplishment and modesty like A Breitbart, (whose oevre is all over the Internet and is nothing less than the democratization of information, mortally wounding the gatekeeper MSM) really shows his pathetic need to perform for his liberal MSM betters and resentment at his irrelevance are what lies behind his base hatred for Breitbart.

There is a huge void in my heart soul. I have two 'pre-ordered' copies of "Righteous Indignation" still sealed in the box. I was one of the first to get his book. My plan was to open the box the first time I met Andrew in LA. Because of who he was I had no doubt I'd buy him lunch or dinner or cocktails right after he signed my books.

I'll choose not to waste words on the Rat. Today is for mourning. Thanks to people like you Ace and Dana and Nolte and Larry and everyone else in the Breitbart Family - we are one big family - I can try to find a way to fill that void.

"And this is where it becomes difficult to honor the Roman injunction to speak no ill of the dead."
What did the Romans say about lying about the dead, David? I'm sure you know that the BS you spewed about Andrew's integrity and honor are outright lies, but I guess you can count on the uninformed sheep to take your word for it. Of course, it is far easier to lie about the dead than the living, since then can't defend themselves.
But what does it say about you, David, that you take glee in not only dancing on the grave of an opponent, but resorting to liesto do so. You are a little boy, unworthy of the 45 seconds it took from my prescious life to tell you what we all think of you.

Of course the left hated him. He shined the light on them. And they couldn't stand the light. It showed them for who the really are. Hateful, vengeful, spiteful little shits who can't can't that someone, somewhere just might be enjoying their life.
I wanted to be Andrew Breibart. Intelligent, articulate, fearless and brilliant. The world has lost a powerful voice for good. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Breitbart for showing us the way. We owe it to him to pick up the torch and to carry on his work. To show the lickspittle media and the sycophantic left how evil and vile and despicable they truly are. To point out their self-loathing and hatred for the good that is capitalism and the American ideal of self-reliance and self-respect. We simply cannot let all his hard work be in vain. We must fight to save all that is good and just and right about America.
Godspeed Andrew. We won't let you down.

596 Great post Ace. RIP A.B.

Posted by: Hobo with a laptop at March 01, 2012 11:37 PM (aMOm5)

597 Frum. A name out of Dickens. A lumpen gray little mass of a man without edges or points. He strikes with all of the force and harm of a dough ball and even then I cringe at the limpid force of the pitch. History will hardly have noticed him and it will not have moved a micrometer because of him.

You could actually see the culture bending around Breitbart. He had Ann Coulter's pugnacity, Abbie Hoffman's showmanship and a set of balls nobody but he could even have transported between battles. He occupied the media.

I'm a little disoriented about how disoriented I still am at his death. I loved watching him because that was what I would have said and done if I were in his position - and had even a fraction of his gifts.

Honor him by picking up his sword? I might have been able to carry it but it is much too big to use. He was a giant killer. On a good day I kill flies. Brietbart made the giant bleed. If it bleeds, it can die. On his worst day he was inspiring. But seeing his gifts made me more aware of the gifts we do not share. I'll be braver with my flies when I think of his example. But I know I won't really live up to that example.

Frum's example? That is surely something that people on both sides of the fight would want to avoid.

598 In a recent speech Brietbart talked about how he had dinner with Bill Ayers who is a great cook. Shortly after he die from unknown reason

599 Ace,

I have spent a few years bouncing from blog to blog. Today you guys showed me the way home. Frum is in his closet channeling AB and yelling, "ACE! STOP RAPING ME UP MY ASS!"
Thanks guys. I have a home.

601 I haven't read any of the comments, but I HAD to delurk for a minute and say that this may be the best post Ace has ever done. The imagery, the metaphor, and the passion that come across here are just phenomenal.

And that may be a better eulogy for Andrew than anything else I can think of. That he inspired others to write better, and more convincingly, than they ever have.

RIP, Breitbart.

603 Just noticed this but look at this line from this idiot:
"Many of our most important public figures have gained their influence and power by inciting and exploiting the ugliest of passions—by manipulating fears."
Now this moron's one claim to fame is the axis of evil line, and he talks about those who manipulate fears? Seriously? Irony, they name is Frum.

Posted by: Rich at March 02, 2012 02:19 AM (ldOlo)

604 A million or so anti-From comments, conceivably by Breitbart's admirers... but not a single one that is not ad hominem, and not a single one that actually lists a single good thing that Breitbart did, except criticize. At least Frum butted his reasoning with some arguments, which more that can be said about Breitbart.

Posted by: richard in obihiro at March 02, 2012 02:38 AM (l5UhB)

605 Ace, that was excellent. Breitbart is one of the few people I would have wanted to meet IRL. I'd wager that the contact high I'd get from his energy would have been fantastic!

Your take down of this Frum(p) creature is spot on. Frum(p) is a quisling. A puerile punk.

Thank you. I have yet to see Act of Valor but I'd imagine the guys are like the ones I met while at NAS North Island in the 80's.

They were VERY exacting in themselves, and others. Imagine how much better our society would be if *more* people were like that!

And that they live, not in service to the status quo, but to an ideal we as a people once held; not elevating oneself by tearing down others but by striving to *better* oneself!

Yeah, the petty and small amongst us would declare them dicks, but the clear headed would recognize how light your heart feels when you live in the light!

Amazing how we can so clearly see this when the left can't. Greta tonight/last night was smug in her denouncement of AB for the Sherrod bs. I used to think Greta was like Cavuto - more interested in the bottom line than in rooting/promoting one side over another. Now I know better. D's of a fether are blind together on this!!!

611 Not surprisingly, those on the Daily Beast who are defending Frum's self-serving, hateful rant, are deriding those in the Tea Party movement as racists, Limbaugh as an unhinged nutcase and solid conservative principles are wrong. They go so far as to defend Ted Kennedy, Soro's, the liberal media and progressive left in their defense of Frum. If someone didn't know better they would assume the comments are from Media Matters, Huffington Post or the Daily Kos.

Those who have lived long enough to gather a clue, realize a person is judged by the company they keep. With Frum's supporters out in full force, showing their leftist leanings and hatred for all that is conservative America, Frum may claim conservative credentials. The facts say otherwise.

Can the "conservative" media and blogosphere please stop the fallacious statement that Frum is some conservative brain-trust whose opinions should matter?

Breitbart long ago outed Frum as a leftist hack, whose claim to conservative fame - a one line quip that has been used as a battering ram by the far left against conservatives since first uttered. Breitbart already left us a legacy when it comes to David Frum. A legacy that should be continued by all on the conservative side.

612 lol...over 600 comments showing exactly how little folks of your ideological bent really don't care about Frum. If you're going to push the narrative that he amounts to nothing....maybe you should say nothing about him at all.

He's winning.....

616 Yes, Frum, the only intelligent conservative left in a world of slobbering cretin tea tards, hit it right on the head.

Brietbart was no hero, he was a scoundrel a liar and a charlatan and he did nothing but hurt the conservative movement. Thank god for people like Frum telling it like it is.

622 there are no words to express my sadness for the loss of such a great man. andrew breitbart was irreplaceable. my deep sadness is even tinged with a tint of fear because andrew was so vital to the future of this country. there is no one on the right to fill his shoes. there is no one out there with the guts to go after the leftist miscreants and media villains that seem hell bent on wrecking this wonderful country. although i am most certainly not one prone to conspiracy theories, i have to wonder at the timing of his death. with an important presidential election just around the corner, it has not escaped me that andrew was one of the most important generals leading the fight to take back the white house. i have to ask, "is andrew's passing going to change the course of this election?" we don't know; we can't know.

andrew made a difference, and he never backed down. he exposed the left for the cabal that it is, and he never let anyone take a swipe at him without standing up for himself. it was refreshing to actually see a conservative fight back for a change, and andrew did just that. in the future, we should ask ourselves, "what would andrew do?"

i have heard that andrew was planning on releasing some tapes that are politically damaging to the president. if this is so, i hope that these will be released post haste. so show the tapes, guys! just show the tapes!

625 Never having re!d Frum, (I have heard him speak and the Quisling label seems accurate...), I can only relate one experience with his column ― dating from when I printed-out Progressive stuff for research.

I'd use the printouts to line my Azure Macaw's cage... you know, save some money by reuse. I'd been re-purposing printouts for a long time, since I'd stopped taking any newspaper.

Shortly after I started using Frum's columns in her cage, she started feather-picking ― a practice of pulling her own feathers out. She eventually started bleeding and was almost completely w/o feathers, she'd started picking at her skin.

We tried everything, but nothing changed the behavior... until I, through happenstance, stopped lining her cage w/Frum's writings.

True story. Consider yourself warned.

Posted by: Droidist at March 02, 2012 11:57 AM (aKKnW)

626 Frum. I hope this ends any pretense about where Frum is coming from.

As for the plan by some Kossacks to get the Westboro Baptist Church to protest Breitbart's funeral, I am pretty sure Andrew would say: Bring it on! If only that they revealed again how vile they really are. I think he would treat such a protest as a badge of honor.

I wish this was all an elaborate hoax and Andrew Breitbart will surprise us in October with a bunch of great stuff. Sadly that is not the case.

And David Frum...I will not speak badly of you. You are dead to me.

627 "David Frum will die as he lived, gray, timid, small, spiteful, cramped in thought and bent in spirit, slender of talent and obese in self-regard, unloved, unnoticed, unremembered and unread."
Ouch! That's going to leave a mark!

Posted by: Shaftoe at March 02, 2012 12:34 PM (221D/)

628 Hey, up here we knew that Frum was an unpleasent little man that was using his mothers name and reputation to further his career but we didn't give him a job in the Bush White House, we don't keep him employed on the networks to give the democratic approved conservative opinion, we don't give him space on some second rate internet paper to continue to spew his blatherings. He's a US citizen now (as I understand) and that's thanks to your Dems and their little minions. We didn't puff this goon up so he's your problem now.

629 "We shall say of them that their legacy consists of more than three words -- "Axis," "of," and "Evil."
Frum only wrote"Axis," "of,"
George Bush changed the original "hatred" to "Evil."

634 I have just been informed that in lieu of flowers, the Breitbart family has asked that donations in Andrew's name be sent to the American Syphilis Foundation.

The family of Andrew's goat has made a similar request.
