Almost as soon as the news came this morning that conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart had died suddenly of “natural causes,” the right-wing began a frenzy of Tweets and posts across social media claiming that President Obama may have had Breitbart killed because he recently threatened to reveal “college films” that would destroy the president.
These are the same conservatives that believe Andrew Breitbart was an ethical, fair and balanced journalist. He was a hack of the highest degree and ruined lives by peddling selectively edited videos to Fox News and right-wing bloggers. He was key in the closing of ACORN and was being sued for slander and defamation by Shirley Sherrod, a woman who was labeled as a racist by Breitbart and lost her job as a result.
At the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Breitbart foamed at the mouth over claims that he had film and photos of Barack Obama in college that would ruin the president once and for all. Because of Andrew’s outlandish claims, his followers are now insisting that his death is mysterious and he may be the victim of assassination to prevent him from telling the truth about Obama.
What a crock of shit.
