All of the left wing hate spewers who have posted here are the biggest bunch of hypocrites I have EVER seen, anywhere! He was a liar, a cheat, a SOB, a this and that, he deserved it, he got what was coming to him, good riddence, etc???

Well, let me tell you something. Andrew Breitbart did not treat the left wing and it's politicians any differently, any better, or any worse, than ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and virtually every other news outlet and publication treats public AND private conservatives, right wingers, and Republicans, every minute of every day of every week of every month of every year, they spew it out, each and every one of them.

So good riddance you say, to Andrew Breitbart? So then you also say good riddance to freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of the press, and free thought in America, which is to typical of the left wing in America it is nauseating.

Your battle cry is, "Shut those f'ers up, shout them down, silence them and their message. Shut them the f-up at any and all costs, to society and the Republic, so long as I, the all important ME, gets what I WANT...my education, my healthcare, my birth control pills, my welfare, my social security, my free everything, at the expense of another.

What ever happened to, "I don't like or believe what you have to say, but I will stand with you to defend and preserve your right to say it?"

Afraid that your wants and desires won't hold up to true scrutiny in the court of public opinion, or when exposed to a simpple check of the facts?

You're a bunch of pitiful hypocrites, and sorry worthless excuses for Americans. And you have zero class as well.

Nobody can be 100% sure Andrew Breitbart is actually dead until we see his original, long-form death certificate.

L.A Coroner, don't bungle this one like the score of previous episodes. It takes small mistakes to completely ruin the results. Previous cases only proved that they are reliably wrong, when it comes to famous personalities. Do they have a clue what to look for?

What slimeballs - he;s dead, and you choose to inject your imaginings. There's PLENTY of leftists in music & Hollywood that drugged themselves to death - Breitbart had health issues & had nothing to do with drugs.
Verbally hypocritical liberals - Love & Tolerance? Garbage.
