The death of conservative media mogul Andrew Breitbart is one of those events that brings out the worst in the left. Even I am amazed at the hate spewed towards this man. Read below to see how far it went.

It is sad that to be a left-winger is to be a hatemonger, but the death of conservative media activist Andrew Breitbart has certainly brought out those true colors of the left. The giddiness displayed and cheering indulged by America’s leftists over the fact that Mr. Breitbart died late Wednesday night has been shrill, disgusting, and suffused with the lamentable inhumanity so commonly found in the hearts of leftists everywhere.
It should be no surprise that left-wingers are prone to authoritarian regimes and acts of genocide.
Breitbart succumbed to a heart attack (most likely) as he took a late night stroll around his Los Angeles neighborhood late on February 29. It was only hours later that the cacophony of celebration by the American left began.
The worst example is that of Rolling Stone’s venom-spitter Matt Taibbi who said of Breitbart’s death, and pardon the language, “Good! Fuck him. I couldn’t be happier that he’s dead.”
Slate writer and left-wing infant tyro Matt Yglesias rushed to his twitter account to say that the world was “slightly improved with @andrewbreitbart dead.”
Nobody commentator Jill Kennedy couldn’t wait to blog about how she felt Breitbart was “an asshole.”
Then there is the arrogance of David Frum of The Daily Beast who thinks he is better than Andrew and in a position of passing judgment on the man.
“In time, Andrew Breitbart might have aged into greater self-control and a higher concept of public service,” Frum arrogantly writes. “Premature death deprived him of the chance at redemption often sought and sometimes found by people who have done wrong in their lives and work.”
