Today marks the one year anniversary of the death of Andrew Breitbart, a conservative rabble-rouser who died at age 43, on March 1, 2012 in Los Angeles. Breitbart ran the right wing website BigGovernment.com which still continues to publish extremist articles.
Breitbart loved to be in the spot light shouting at liberals and the mainstream media. He was a true agent provocateur. During the now famous protests by Wisconsin workers at their State capital over workers bargaining rights being taken away, Andrew Breitbart was there with his megaphone and right wing thugs shouting down the protesters.
Andrew Breitbart’s claim to fame was his mouth, which got him plenty of air time on Fox News and other right wing outlets on TV and radio as he spewed his rants of hate against the mainstream media, liberal’s, Democrats, and President Obama.
Breitbart is also responsible for falsely accusing an African-American woman named Shirley Sherrod, who worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture and was subsequently fired in 2010, after Breitbart accused her publicly of discriminating against a white farmer while working for the USDA in Georgia.
Breitbart is now gone, but his legacy of hate still continues to this day.
