“Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing” – Phyllis Diller
Recently, Chairman Steven K. Bannon was faced with some house cleaning at Breitbart News. Some people are using this to slam our next president Donald J. Trump. These people are even going so far as to assume that the late Andrew Breitbart would be working against TRUMP if he were still alive today. These people are pretty foolish when we take a look at what Breitbart stood for, and more importantly, what he stood against.
BONUS: There are dozens of people running around screaming, “I knew Andrew and he would never (fill in the blank)……”. I’m not one of those people who run around screaming, “I knew Andrew Breitbart“. I didn’t know him. Did I talk to him at events in Los Angeles? Many times. Did I speak at some of the same rally’s he did? Yes. But I didn’t know Andrew Breitbart.
But I do know this…
Prior to 2012, Andrew Breitbart didn’t really like Donald J. TRUMP that much. So what. There are several quotes floating around that Breitbart made, many years ago, about Mr. Trump. So what. If Breitbart was alive today I think it would be unwise for people to assume he wouldn’t notice that the Republican establishment, the Democrats, and the Media are all freaking out about Donald J. TRUMP becoming our next president. Actually, you know what? I take that back. I think it’s stupid for people to assume that Breitbart would ignore the fact that the Republican establishment, the Democrats, and the Media are all freaking out about Donald J. TRUMP becoming our next president. Breitbart paid attention when this happened.
I think it’s fair to say that Breitbart always took the side of the person or issue that the Media, the Democrats, and the Republican establishment were trying to shut down. I can’t think of a single time that Breitbart didn’t take the side of the person or the issue that the Media, the Democrats, and the Republican establishment worked together in order to take down.
It’s intellectually dishonest to assume that Breitbart’s position, which was spoken years before this election cycle started to play out, would be the same today. Breitbart always payed razor-sharp-close-attention to the unholy triad of the Media, the Republican establishment, and the Democrats. Again, I can’t think of one time that Breitbart sided with the Republican establishment, the Democrats, and the Media – instead of the person or issue that the unholy triad were trying to stop.
