Breitbart .....Are you brave enough to listen?

UPDATE: If the video won't work for you, please click HERE and watch.  You won't be sorry.

This will frighten liberals;  Breitbart (let the hissing begin) was a liberal, he heard Rush Limbaugh on the advice of a friend, and now, as a Conservative, he says "excuse me while I save the world" on the cover of his new book RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATIONWARNING TO LIBERALS:  you won't have the guts to watch it all the way through, except to insult, but you COULD learn something.  Really! Andrew did!

And, yes, I know.......I'm going to get comments about Andrew and Planned Parenthood and SEIU and prostitutes (did you see the Nutroots guy at their convention demanding Andrew answer if he'd ever had sex with a prostitute?  They just CAN'T be civil when they're that frightened of the light).......and, if my lib trolls are true to their past, I'll get comments about what a coward Andrew is (try it yourselves, pals, see how cowardly you can be).

Conservatives: please pass this video along.  (did you know Andrew started the Huffington Post?)
(thanks Mustang and mike)

I hear a lot of this "he was a liberal". Latest has been David Mamet.

Now just what did Mamet do in his pre-conservative days that established him as a liberal? Answer: Nothing. His plays concern a dog eat dog winner take all culture that is much more conducive to Libertarianism than any leftist ideology.

So Breitbart equates liberalism with rock concerts.

This is the guy we are "afraid of". Odd that you always assume fear, the natural right wing mode.

I managed fine in my math exams. I handled partial differential equations and linear algebra at Brown with a public school background. Why couldn't Andrew cut it?

The guy is on a self promotion tour and this "I used to be a liberal" meme is very au courant.

cube said...

I couldn't see the video :-(
I will try again later.

Z said...

Listen to the video, Ducky! MY GOD, he explains everything! :-) You crack me UP!

As for Mamet...I just have to take HIS WORD for it...you think he was always a conservative and just waited for this moment to baffle liberals? REALLY?

Breitbart and rock concerts? Why, because I linked PURPLE HAZE? :-)
Oh, GOd, this IS fun...I knew you'd the first one here!

Ducky (sshhh!) Andrew WAS a liberal. Watch the video, it'll help!!

Cube, darn! please do try again.

Opus #6 said...

Breitbart is a lion. And he scares libs silly. You can always tell who scares libs by who they attack relentlessly.

Dave Miller said...

Opus, he doesn't scare me at all.

At least in the end, he was honest. It really isn't about objectivity, or as one network puts it, "fair and balanced."

It is about having balancing the left leaning media with a right leaning media.

Which is all fine in my book, unless people from both sides try to kid themselves with a belief that their side is not biased.

I am not sure if you saw the Jon Stewart interview on FOX News Sunday, not the TV version I initially saw, but the unedited version available on their web site.

In it, Chris Wallace says FOX is there to present the other side to the MSNBC viewpoint.

He did not say they were there to present a "fair and balanced" product, he essentially said FOX News was promoting a "balancing" product.

Exactly what Breitbart was referencing when he was speaking of the two sides of media in Great Britain.

Maybe the sooner we get to that, and people from both sides admit the bias of their side, which Stewart did Sunday regarding MSNBC, we can begin to move ahead.

Z... I particularly liked when he spoke about Tea Party people having to disprove their racism, or a negative. When someone labels you something that is perceived as a negative, it is indeed hard to disprove it, even if the facts support you.

Ducky's here said...

Well the right has to do some explaining of their reaction to Obama.

Movements like the birthers indicate a trauma reaction, speaking of frightened.

meanwhile breitbart, his little video scamming finished, can explain why the Shirley Sharrod incident and the other stunts had anything to do with "balancing". Seems it has everything to do with self promotion and sensationalism. Would you compare Breitbart as a journalist to someone like Amy Goodwin

Dave Miller said...

But Ducky, what is wrong with Breitbart trying to be a balancing force for the conservative side, as long as everyone understands that, as he and Wallace said, objectivity is not the outcome?

Z said...

Dave:

"Opus, he doesn't scare me at all."
I don't think he means to scare anybody; he's coming up with unpleasant truths and that's scaring the media. He's also trying so hard to get a media which tells the truth and gives all the truth. Not scary; but they fear him like they fear Palin.

"It is about having balancing the left leaning media with a right leaning media."

This is Andrew's plight, and the plight of most of us conservative bloggers, actually. The Leftwingers tend to think we need to have all news come from a conservative viewpoint and that's absolutely NOT TRUE. That's why we feel it so unthinking that the leftwing profs are so insistent that kids don't think but regurgitate their lib viewpoints. I've seen it to much personally to think differently...

"Which is all fine in my book, unless people from both sides try to kid themselves with a belief that their side is not biased."

There's a real difference with some bias, every living, breathing person has some bias, and the kind of "news" the left gives in the guise of NEWS. Yet FOX gets the blame for being RIGHTWING. Yes, their editorial people, hannity and O'reilly are mainly rightwing, but the news is the news. Not like CNN's promoting NEWS and having no conservatives represented in any news readers OR panels...maybe 2 a week now, I think? FOX has leftwingers on all day, every day.

"In it, Chris Wallace says FOX is there to present the other side to the MSNBC viewpoint.

He did not say they were there to present a "fair and balanced" product, he essentially said FOX News was promoting a "balancing" product."

Wallace, of course, doesn't speak for us or the FOX administration; but, in a way, he has a point. I believe what he meant was that they need to give the news from all points of view, not just the far leftwinger viewpoint of MSNBC..

"Exactly what Breitbart was referencing when he was speaking of the two sides of media in Great Britain."

British (and French and German) papers give THE NEWS. PERIOD. Unless they're an avowedly leftist or rightist paper, which is known in advance. They're not like the NY Times trying to pass themselves off as unbiased news.

"Maybe the sooner we get to that, and people from both sides admit the bias of their side, which Stewart did Sunday regarding MSNBC, we can begin to move ahead."

Stewart denied the NY Times has bias...I heard that. And you can still say this, Dave? I felt almost badly for him because I had admired his occasional fairness but won't much anymore; not after that interview. He was smug and showed the typical leftwing elitism that kind of surprised me, frankly. And I thought Wallace did the typical gentlemanly thing...and backed off. He's just too elegant and good a guy.
Stewart spoke to O'Reilly a few weeks ago as if O'Reilly was pathetic for working for FOX...it was UNBELIEVABLE. That's when Stewart REALLY lost me.

"Z... I particularly liked when he spoke about Tea Party people having to disprove their racism, or a negative. When someone labels you something that is perceived as a negative, it is indeed hard to disprove it, even if the facts support you."

Dave, are you suggesting the facts support racism in the Tea Party? Look up Lloyd Marcus....there were TONS of Blacks at the only TP event I went to.......

Dave, I know Andrew and he's an amazing man...would like to know him better. He's fighting for the media to at least stop the belittling and misrepresentation...he's a hero.

Bd said...

Wow, a long rant but just more hollow spin, Z. Nice try, though/

Ducky's here said...

Dave Miller -- deceit and lying through your teeth are okay if you call it balancing?

Is Breitbart a journalist? Please.

beamish said...

I tend to keep people who take longer than most to realize they're not stupid at arm's length. David Horowitz, Andrew Breitbart....

I appreciate their "conversion," don't get me wrong, it's just a little awkward squeezing into comfy with them jumping out front. I mean, it's easier to point out how insane and out of touch with reality the left is than it is to get water out of a faucet. But there's far more to conservatism and libertarianism than that. At least there used to be.

Z said...

Ducky: "Well the right has to do some explaining of their reaction to Obama."

How many days are you the first one to "read" my blog and you think we have to EXPLAIN our reaction to the things about Obama's stances we rue? Isn't that allowed?
Ducky, if you think our reaction to Obama needs explaining, how do you explain the astonishing reaction the leftwingers had to Bush!? :-)

The reaction to Obama is reaction to his stances.

"Movements like the birthers indicate a trauma reaction, speaking of frightened."

Movement like the 'birthers' is America getting back to being America; questioning. I know the left has made 'questioning' a sin, but we still think it's worth the truth.

"meanwhile breitbart, his little video scamming finished, can explain why the Shirley Sharrod incident and the other stunts had anything to do with "balancing". Seems it has everything to do with self promotion and sensationalism. Would you compare Breitbart as a journalist to someone like Amy Goodwin"

you're joking about GOodwin, right? :-) Can you pick a journalist who's more biased? If you'd watched the whole video, you'd see that BALANCE is exactly what Breitbart is going for.

Andrew is not a journalist and never said he was. He's a blogger and tries to get the AMerican media back to truth...listen to the whole video.
I wish it were self promotion because he has four small children to support. The Sherrod lawsuit will be tough on him. He did the right thing and MAYBE the information I know he has on Shirley will finally come out. Maybe those black farmers she screwed will come after her with pitchforks. We can only hope.

Z said...

Bd...which was spin? Let me know.

Ducky, you really have such a hatred for Andrew / is it that so much federal funding for Planned Parenthood finally got dropped? They can't kill quite as many babies anymore, or..??

Beamish, that has to be THE weirdest stance I've heard, but you're more than welcome to it.
I'm always cheered to hear that lefties converted; especially when they are this bright.
Gee, a kid who grew up drinking and buying the liberal crap in college...and he changed?....BE CAREFUL OF ANDREW!! :-)

Bloviating Zeppelin said...

Sometimes people actually Come Around.

I was a HUGE Leftist until some things came together:

1. I began to own property;
2. I began to own my cars;
3. I had a job that paid more than minimum wage;
4. I had benefits that could be taken away from me via negotiations;
5. I began to be taxed to the point where I decided I wouldn't work overtime any more;

And, further:

I finally realized where MY dollars were being applied, to persons who had NOT NEARLY worked as HARD as me.

BZ

Z said...

BZ, it's my humble opinion that Conservatives who were liberals have a good grasp; they didn't just swallow what their parents happened to be; Mine were Conservatives and didn't talk politics at home much but I picked up the values anyhow.
But liberals who turn around know what THAT was about and can't take it anymore; much like all of us never could.
I might suggest that many of them are more 'informed' Conservatives...

Isn't it interesting that Andrew partied through his college years, passed and graduated and then, when asked to rate the degree, he went through his books and THEn realized "What the...?" I think his metamorphosis is fascinating.

You realized what the left's up to early, BZ...that's a good thing.

Bd said...

Z said: "Movement like the 'birthers' is America getting back to being America; questioning. I know the left has made 'questioning' a sin, but we still think it's worth the truth."

Lol,and how'd that work out for ya!

And how has "left has made 'questioning' a sin?"

Bd said...

Oh BZ, puleeze. So, you had successes in life, you switched to the right and adopted the 'I got mine, you go get yours' attitude. Why do you hate America?

Joe said...

BD; "...just more hollow spin."

What a come-back!!!

WOW!!!!

That argument was so logical, so fact-filled...I don't see how anybody can refute it!

Man! Z must have her head hanging so low, now.

Bd, I think that comment showed exactly the heights your intellectual proweress reaches.

Way to go, Man!

Yu da (fill in here).

Major said...

BD

We love this man. Why? Because he's found salvation in redemption, truth and most importantly that Marxism is death to America.

That men like him and David Horowitz to name two...is uniquely positioned to unveil the lies, the hate, the hypocrisy and the needy, parasitical left as we alll know exits.

He exposes the left as the germ, the disgusting parasites that they are. Incapable of original thought...incapable of existing without the hand of the government to soften the blow of real life.

Breitbart is the modern equivalent of the founders...the modern equivalent of Paul Reveres to sound the alarm..to warn America of the threat to our freedoms and Republic. We are in a civil war...a war with the media against all America stands for.

He hates the liberal agenda....WE hate the liberal agenda,

As a former combat "soldier"...Breitbart is a man we need in the fox hole of truth..against the liberal lies...the liberal scum...the liberal need to destroy America...in the name of diversity.

So...Ducky and BD....the socialist hero's that you think you are....the hypocrites of liberalism that you pretend to be....you who pretend that you support the troops with your lies and hypocrisy....without supporting their mission...one of COMBAT and killing the enemy....means to me.....that you are lying pieces of shit....that are completely unaware of the realities and the cost of freedom...that you sit back and demand the first 10 amendments to the Constitution...without realizing that it's the 2ND AMENDMENT THAT HAS GUARANTEED YOUR RIGHT TO BE CONSUMMATE...SELFISH ASSHOLES....without ever...EVER....having to pay your dues.

My Brothers in arms....have paid the ultimate price....with their lives...with their limbs...with their souls...with their bodies.....so that you....

May well go on to be the most unappreciated, selfish POS's on the face of America.

I'm angry....I'm pissed...as I look around and see my comrades who have sacrificed their live and limbs...for shit...yes SHIT....like you...


But...Thank you in advance...PUKES.


Those sum libbie that hate......HATE....Clarence Thomaas....Herman Cain...you fucking frauds.


Remember this you pukes....in 1854...it was the REPUBLICAN party that was formed to eliminate slavery.

Libs...assholes.

Sorry Ms. Z.

Elmers Brother said...

duhkkky forgets that the 'birthers' were dems like Clinton's lawyer and Chris Matthews. Keep swinging duhkster

Major said...

Ms. Z...Forgive my typos....please forgive my anger...

I'm outraged.

Why? Because I realize that America...is at WAR with itself. And I fear the outcome and consequences.

America is IN...a civil war.

Pris said...

Breitbart is great. We need more like him.


"Well the right has to do some explaining of their reaction to Obama."
Really Ducky?

Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, radical far left czars.

Obama; "I will fundamentally transform America".
"Energy costs will necessarily skyrocket".
"we have to spread the wealth around".
"we need a civilian security force, as fully equipped and funded as our military".
"The Constitution is fundamentally flawed".
Obama is a far left liberal.

There you go Ducky, that did it for me.

Major said...

""The Constitution is fundamentally flawed".
Obama is a far left liberal."



Ms. Prisc.....when I got home...I never thought I'd have to see half of America....as the GD modern equivalent of the Taliban.

I never thought that I had to prepare to fight in the streets of America.

I do believe....that's it's coming...as much as I'd hate to see it....But...we are in a civil war.

Z said...

BD.."Lol,and how'd that work out for ya!"
pretty well...
Well, Trump finally got something from the WH...what a MIRACLE, THERE IS A CERTIFICATE AND HERE IT IS!!
except there are experts who doubt the validity of that thing, too, sadly.

You think BZ hates America because he wants to keep what he's worked hard for and give from his heart to others if he can?
When did you start to hate America, bd?



MAJOR! forgive your TYPOS!? that's the funniest comment I've ever had after all that swearing :-) But, I don't mind the swearing at all.....they deserve it.

Elbro: why is it I always miss the obvious? Well said.

Pris; why can't everyone who really does love America see that?
Why can't liberals understand that if Conservatives don't feel like being robbed, it's not that they HATE THE POOR? etc etc etc

Z said...

Major, I hate to think you're right, but I absolutely don't see a way out of it. We're too divided and we're not even getting all the information from the msm...and, when we demand it and get it from conservative venues, it's laughed at because it's not leftwing. That is UNAMERICAN and scary as HELL.
Did you see a big change from when you left and came back?

Major said...

"Did you see a big change from when you left and came back?"

Yes I did Ms. Z...sadly. But Not from one of us.....judging from the attitudes and comments from my "buds"...We are and always will be close and ready to bear anything that we can to keep America safe. That was our pledge...our sworn oath. We believe in our oath....God, Country, Family and the Corps.

However, we preferred to go...arrive and go about our business, as usual...quitely and without fanfare.

Marines...soldiers....sailors....grunts....Green's or Seals....

Recruits....basic airman....privates....do not want recognition.

( I have tears in my eyes...sorry )

They LOVE America...as you'd expect. What the libbie scum...the retards of the left...cannot and DO NOT understand...and what they underestimate...is our PROFUND....love of America.

Am I retired..? Yes? Am I incapable of defending AMERICA?????? NEVER.

I...am here...and I know that ( as many of us have seen....too many limbless PATRIOTS...SOLDIERS..MARINES...have volunteered...to go back into combat...re join their units...) because...they refuse to believe that AMERICA can be defeated.

Here is what I know, Ms. Z.

This country...this soil upon which we claim to be Americans...cannot exist without the dedication and sacrifice of all Americans. Left or RIGHT.... cannot exist without a firm belief that those 10 commandments , beginning with the first amendment, are necessary to our continued existence.

Ohhhh.....do I appear to be a "jingoist"> Do I appear to these lefty...errrr....douchebags...to be...TOO American?

Mike said...

Z-
Good observation on Major's apology. It's like someone saying "[expletive deleted] you" and then apologizing for not using a reflexive pronoun.

Pris said...

Major, It's understandable you would feel this way. So many of us do, but we didn't make the sacrifice you did.

But, when Under God, Indivisible was edited out of the Pledge of Allegience the other day by NBC, they were inundated with calls and "tweets", of complaints.

I think the far left makes up no more than 20% of the population, not half. You're not alone. More than you think, feel as we do.

Z said...

thanks, Mike :-)


Major...I think we on the Right do appear "too American" to some leftists...or you get Bd who thinks we don't love America.

I don't care what anybody thinks: We know who we are, we know we believe in self-reliance and freedom and less government and helping our neighbor when needed and......(GASP!) We understand the most important difference between the Right and the Left:

(take a deep breath, people...)

SOMETIMES BAD THINGS HAPPEN AND PEOPLE SUFFER UNFAIRLY AND THAT'S JUST THE WAY LIFE IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE.

Do I sound heartless? I don't think so; I think I'm just realistic. And I'll do my damndest to try to help that suffering person, if I can, but will not sacrifice my own family to do so.

Please chime in...

Z said...

Pris, did NBC really get so many people disagreeing with that? That's very refreshing.
If I knew a big percentage of those people were thirty and under, I'd be cheered out of my wits!

beamish said...

Beamish, that has to be THE weirdest stance I've heard, but you're more than welcome to it.

I'm waiting for the David Brock plot twist. I hope I'm just cynical.

I'm always cheered to hear that lefties converted; especially when they are this bright.
Gee, a kid who grew up drinking and buying the liberal crap in college...and he changed?....BE CAREFUL OF ANDREW!! :-)


He's cool, don't get me wrong. It's just that I did more than my fair share of partying in college as well, but never bought into the liberal crap.

nicrap said...

... nowdays epiphany is serious business. ;)

Z said...

nicrap...you're unbelievable ;-)

Beamish...but he explains his background very well in the video...this guy is on fire, as you know..
and he's my friend's son-in-law so I know them and that they watched him change and totally trust in his convictions.
He wasn't ever really a lib, he just thought he was because that's usually all dopey kids in college know.

nicrap said...

...then you should believe me all the more, Mrs Z., for in the words of Oscar Wilde: ...i can believe anything, provided that it is sufficiently incredible.

(The Picture of Dorian Gray.) ;)

Z said...

nicrap...good one! Oscar Wilde was so clever.
Do you know, I never read the book but LOVE the old film...have you seen it?

nicrap said...

...no, ma'am, unfortunately not. :)

Z said...

it's fabulous; I just wonder how close it is to the book.

g'night, nicrap

nicrap said...

Yeah and now the GOP couldn't give a shit about the average Americans as the work to continue to sell our democracy to corporate America and fool their constituents with lies, hate and fear.

I may be an 'asshole' but you're the 'asswipe.'

Pris said..."Breitbart is great. We need more like him." More liars who edit videos to make up lies? It's all the right has! Lol!

Z said...

BD, can you provide the links to show how Breitbart edited? He'd be interested, too.

and, don't look now, but corporate America's leadership is full of fatcat Democrats: Check into GE.

thanks

Mark said...

As a college know-it-all, I was a Liberal because I believed Americans are too stupid to take care of themselves so the government must take care of them, for them.

I think this is goes to the heart of the Liberal mindset.

Later, when I was forced to live in the ghetto due in part to Federal Government over-regulation. I had the opportunity to see first hand the consequences of how Government hand out programs worked for the typical welfare whores who live in a constant state of gimme, gimme, gimmee. I could tell you literally hundreds of stories of these no-account, lazy, welfare cheating bastards.

One example was a woman who sat on her fat ass in her front yard every day, moaning and complaining that the government didn't give her even more. The government supplied her a place to live, paid her bills, bought her groceries, and sent her a check every month. My wife and I both worked our butts off to dig ourselves out of public housing and she made more than we did, doing absolutely nothing. Worse yet, her kids were growing up with that same entitlement mentality. Both of her kids were involved in street gangs and drug dealing. I got out of that neighborhood without ever finding out if either of them ever got caught, but I'll bet, if they did, she did everything she could to defend them and excuse their behavior, as well as shifting the blame to other people.

Yeah. I'm a Conservative, with good reason.

Z said...

Mark, there really are so many Americans who think government's there to give them a living.
Thanks for this story....

I remember hearing, after Katrina, that the TX Dome was full of teens who sat smoking all day on their cots and wouldn't lift a finger to help clean up the place; they had to bring in busloads of Mexicans and pay them to do it. Wouldn't you think people would band together and make their life better by chipping in and working?
ya, right.

Lisa said...

There you go Mark said it all.
I lived in a mixed neighborhood not the ghetto but I too saw much of the entitlement mindset.
I remember the crack head welfare mom with 8 foster kids went to a neighbor's house to sell a hundred dollars worth of foo stamps(meant for the kids)for 20.00 for a fix for herself. Just more liberal policy encouraging this type of life style.
I also bowled with this guy who had 5 kids with 3 differnt women none of who he married and when he had back surgery I purposely asked him what about the kids while you are out of the work? His answer verbatim " The govermnet gotta take care of of my kids".
Plus I did some interning in Pharmacy and you would not believe how many expensive controlled substances are prescribed via Medicaid to many loser types courtesy of tax dollars.
At least 500.00 per month per person for many.

One woman who runs our local Tea Party Group's mother was a member of the Weather Underground and used to drag her to protests . Whenever she would ask her mother what they were demonstrating she would never have a coherent answer for her. She was totally turned off by them.

I do find it ironic that liberals turn Conservative and not the other way around. Takes alot of deprogramming and wising up.

Z said...

Lisa, you always have such good input; thanks. What stories!!
And we have readers here who'll think you're unkind and hate people for exposing these truths.

It does take a lot of deprogramming; 9/11 did it to a lot of liberals, from what I've heard and read....and you don't hear too many Conservatives turning LIberal, do you.

Lisa said...

I get that hate thing alot Z. But facts is facts. Thank you.

I hear ya. I just have trememdous trust issues. Maybe I need to work on that. But, so many people I know have turned out to be full of shit (in my opinion) that I don't wade in the shallow (or try not to anymore).

I need to get a feel for Breitbart's politics, so I guess that means buying his book and reading it. But that in itself is a problem of perspective. Why do I have to read his book to know where he really stands? His media "antics" only tell a piece of the tale.

But then there's that I can watch him on a YouTube video filmed by a camera right in front of him doing a radio interview about Weiner's weiner and passing his cell phone around the room to let others see the picture and then claim in other outlets that he only showed the photo to others in that radio interview because he was sure no cameras were around.

That strikes me as a little on the shamelessly mendacious side. He's still got a little lefty in him.
