Liberals Rejoice in the Death of Conservative Journalist

Conservative journalist Andrew Breitbart passed away two days ago. I was not a fan of Breitbart’s (in fact, I’ve criticized one of his websites, bigpeace.com, on multiple occasions right here on this blog) but I respect the dead regardless of my differences with them in life. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for some of Breitbart’s other opponents. Breitbart’s more self-righteous political adversaries have showered Twitter with a disgusting display of vitriol all directed at the late Andrew Breitbart:

The most influential tweet came fromSlate’s Matt Yglesias (@mattyglesias), who tweeted: “Conventions around dead people are ridiculous. The world outlook is slightly improved with @AndrewBrietbart dead.”

AlmightyBob ‏ @AlmightyBoob : @AndrewBreitbart haha youre dead and in hell being a gay with hitler

Jeff Glasse ‏ @jeffglasse : Andrew Breitbart now enjoying afternoon tea with Hitler #goodriddanceyouhack

@darrenfiorello: Andrew Breitbart died? Is it wrong that I’m happier about that than when they got bin Laden and Saddam?

Kellie Allen @thirtyseven : Breitbart helped destroy the career of someone I know. Good riddance, scumraker.

John Kapp ‏ @johnkapp : Andrew Breitbart was a racist, sexist, homophobe. Good riddance.

Natasha Yar-Routh ‏ @xiomberg : Andrew Breitbart is dead, good riddance to bad trash. He was a vile excuse for a human being

michael mayer ‏ @prisonforbush: Breitbart dead? D Good riddance. More republicans should follow his lead.

DAC ‏ @dac2527 : Satan calls Andrew Breitbart home… Good riddance!
Nick Huinker ‏ @towndrinker good riddance to bad rubbish. no reason to mourn someone who made it their business to make this world a less pleasant place. #breitbart

@CleverTrousers: Andrew Breitbart died! Today looks like it’s going to be a GREAT day. #deadgasbags

That’s just a sample of what’s been circulating the internet. It sure is a good thing we live in progressive America where we are no longer bound by the despotic shackles of Christianity, what with its commandments of “love thy enemy” and rules about respecting the dead.

Oy vey

The impotent twitter troops who find the mocking of a dead man to be a worthwhile endeavor would do well to read the second chapter of the Catechism of the Catholic Church on “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” which calls for all the dead to be treated with “respect and charity.”
