The interesting role of Andrew Breitbart

Andrew Breitbart died suddenly yesterday.  He made his mark chiefly as a blogger, but most certainly deserved the title of journalist.  I wouldn't endorse Andrew Breitbart's worldview but I greatly appreciated the role he played in American culture.  The man was fearless and principled.  These are virtues largely missing today.

Breitbart wouldn't stand for the monopoly of perspective dominating and controlling most of the mainstream media. He refused to be silent while a certain ideology seemed to shape the public and political narrative of the country.  He described himself as a Reagan conservative with an affinity toward libertarianism.  That resonates with me.

On a much deeper level, I hope he moved away from his Jewish faith upbringing and embraced Christ as Savior before he died.  Only God knows.

Wow, only 43. Makes you wonder if there wasn't some kind of conspiracy?

Bet you the Left wing media didn't shed any tears. But agree, what a powerful voice of reason. Very sad that his voice has been silenced. I pray the Lord will raise up many more just like him.
