Andrew continues to illuminate, even in death. The usually mild-mannered Jim Geraghty over at NRO's Campaign Spot blows a gasket (albeit tastefully) over the Left's gleeful response at Andrew Breitbart's tragic death
I had observed, yesterday, that there were not merely a handful of folks on the left sneering about how happy they were that Breitbart had suddenly died. There were gobs and gobs of them, all over Twitter and the web at large
...it confirms what many of us suspected and/or feared...a large chunk of the rank and file of the Left — way more than a small percentage — really don’t believe that their opponents deserve anything resembling basic human dignity or respect.
We’re not really people to them. It’s not an accident that New York Times columnist referred to his critics on Twitter as “right-wing lice.” They’re not good, decent Americans who just have some different ideas about how to make the world a better place. They run on hate. It appears their entire sense of self-worth is driven by demonizing those who disagree with them and celebrating their political viewpoints as the cardinal measurements of virtue and good character. They are positively energized by the thought of lashing out at those of us who have the audacity to think differently than they. They really do project and accuse the opposition of all their worst traits: rage, closed-mindedness, cruelty, intolerance, bigotry, and an inability to empathize with others...
..for now, if one of my less-preferred candidates ends up getting the nomination, hey, affix bayonets and charge, and let’s make that guy president. We can deal with his flaws after the inauguration. Right now, this country’s being run into the ground by the president who got elected by all of the folks who chose to dance a jig at our friend’s passing. Like Hell are my boys going to grow up in a country where these losers set the standards of behavior and their juvenile sneers at the recently deceased are normal.
If this is how they want to play this game, then game on.
I'm right at your side, Mr. Geraghty. Only the battle will be harder with our General dead, our allies within the Catholic Church weakened by years of appeasement and self-debasement, and a media who will absolutely lie in order to cover up the truth about the horrible sickness that pervades their side of the political spectrum.
The Washington Post, yesterday:
Mr. Breitbart’s political adversaries are speaking kindly about a man they often vilified...
Jennifer Rubin, blogging at the same paper, pukes in her mouth...
You can't make this shit up. But you can fight it.
