A Warrior Leaves Us - RIP Breitbart

I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.
Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.
Breitbart in his own words.  

He was more than just a warrior for the conservative cause.  He was also a son, a brother, a husband, and father.  Let's hope that the left respects those family members in their time of grief and sorrow over the passing of a man too young to die.  

Rest in Peace Mr. Breitbart and thank you for giving conservatives a voice.  You will me missed.  I talked to him briefly while at CPAC just a few short weeks ago. I told him that I bow to his tenacity.  I wouldn't be brave enough to do what he did.  He leaves us with another important lesson, embrace life you never know when it is your time.

This is extremely sad. We have lost a great stalwart who fought for conservatism. Yes, there is an unknown factor with regards to his health and I know strange things happen but this seems somewhat suspicious because he was such a controversial, high-profile public figure.

I am sure his wife will want a full account of what happened to her husband and the father of her four children.

We have no idea what his health issues were and what he did and did not know.

It isn't easy to kill someone and make it look like natural causes. I am sure there will be an autopsy and his wife will be given an account of what the cause was. Until then, I think we should all respect his family and keep the commentary respectful to their grieving. His children are very young. This is going to be a very difficult thing for them.
