Reports: Andrew Breitbart Dead, Age 43

Source: TPM Livewire

From The Big Government Website:

Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.
We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.
Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.
Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:

234. One of my co-workers died at 37 of a heart attack

It was so surreal, I had worked with him the previous day and he looked
perfectly normal. I attended his wake and he looked like a man in 20's just
sleeping there. It was absolutely shocking to see him dead so young.

321. My brother died at 40 - fulminating heart attack

In a golf course, sitting on a golf cart, surrounded by doctors, within sight of a hospital.

A US Marine with 20 years of service.

And he's not the only one in my family who's died in their 40's of a heart attack.

We're beginning to suspect that hemochromatosis is the silent killer that's been picking off my kin for the past 100 years or so that I have records. Over absorption of iron. They call it the Irish disease. It makes blood thick, sticky, and prone to forming massive clots.

412. My stepson died at 40. Massive heart attack. His cuts didn't bleed like normal.

He died in his sleep, after having "indigestion" that day at work

Only later did I think about the fact that his cuts barely bled and that could be related to his death.

And, he wasn't Irish. He was Dutch, Spanish, Belgian, and Central American Indian (Maya?).

431. Hereditary hemochromatosis is one of the most common genetic disorders in the United States.

It most often affects Caucasians of Northern European descent, although other ethnic groups are also affected. About five people out of 1,000—0.5 percent—of the U.S. Caucasian population carry two copies of the hemochromatosis gene and are susceptible to developing the disease. One out of every 8 to 12 people is a carrier of one abnormal gene. Hemochromatosis is less common in African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, and American Indians.

Although both men and women can inherit the gene defect, men are more likely than women to be diagnosed with hereditary hemochromatosis at a younger age. On average, men develop symptoms and are diagnosed between 30 to 50 years of age. For women, the average age of diagnosis is about 50.

Hemochromatosis is considered rare and doctors may not think to test for it. Thus, the disease is often not diagnosed or treated. The initial symptoms can be diverse, vague, and mimic the symptoms of many other diseases. The doctors also may focus on the conditions caused by hemochromatosis—arthritis, liver disease, heart disease, or diabetes—rather than on the underlying iron overload. However, if the iron overload caused by hemochromatosis is diagnosed and treated before organ damage has occurred, a person can live a normal, healthy life.

426. I take an aspirin every other day

not the baby kind, the standard size 325mg. Just have to make sure to eat
something with it. I also have aspirin handy in the car, and by bed side. It
is the best defense against clots, which are probably the cause of sudden
heart attacks. Even if one exercises regularly, one can have genetic tendencies
of forming blood clots.

363. I had a former co-worker pass a couple months ago

He was 45 at the time of his passing, which was the result of a heart attack. Unfortunately by the time of the visitation he didn't look like he was just sleeping - he died 1,000 miles from home so by the time they got him home and ready for visitation it was over a week. It was a total shock to have him go so suddenly.

175. Yeah, it is.

Natural Causes of Death

A death by natural causes, as recorded by coroners and on death certificates and associated documents, is one that is primarily attributed to natural agents: usually an illness or an internal malfunction of the body. For example, a person dying from complications from influenza (an infection) or a heart attack (an internal body malfunction) would be listed as having died of natural causes. Old age is not a scientifically recognized cause of death; there is always a more direct cause although it may be unknown in certain cases and could be one of a number of aging-associated diseases.

In contrast, death caused by active intervention is called unnatural death. The "unnatural" causes are usually given as accident (implying no unreasonable voluntary risk), misadventure (accident following a wilful and dangerous risk), suicide, or homicide. In some settings, other categories may be added. For example, a prison may track the deaths of inmates due to acute intoxication separately.

254. Here you go...

Cocaine-Related Cardiomyopathy

Many deaths in the drug abuse population are ascribed to drug toxicity without further attempts at defining the exact etiology.

Comparative cardiac pathology among deaths due to cocaine toxicity, opioid toxicity and non-drug-related causes.
FINDINGS:

The cocaine group had significantly higher proportions of left ventricular hypertrophy and ischaemic heart disease than either comparison group. Coronary artery atherosclerosis was also detected in significantly higher proportions of cocaine cases than in either comparison group. The cocaine group was more likely than either comparison group to have atherosclerosis of the left anterior descending coronary artery, right coronary artery and circumflex artery. Only in the left anterior descending coronary artery did the cocaine group exhibit higher levels of moderate-severe atherosclerosis. Cocaine cases also had significantly higher levels of cerebrovascular atherosclerosis than either comparison group.

Cardiovascular Effects of Cocaine
Cocaine causes systolic and diastolic dysfunction, arrhythmias, and atherosclerosis. Cocaine decreases myocardial contractility and ejection fraction by blocking sodium and potassium channels within the myocardium. Intracoronary infusion of cocaine decreases left ventricular ejection fraction and increases left ventricular end-diastolic pressure and end-systolic volume. Long-term cocaine use is associated with left ventricular hypertrophy and prolonged deceleration time. Cocaine is associated with coronary atherosclerosis even in young users with relatively few cardiac risk factors.

As posted by someone else, pulmonary embolism, also considered a natural cause of death, can also occur in cocaine users, thereby causing death.

Not an MD but worked in a university anatomic pathology department for some years; saw a lot of things, including autopsies and the attendant reports.

Why not wait until there is an autopsy to learn the cause of death. It seems that the Corporate Media has immediately attempted to protect this story by using the phrase "natural causes," but no one buys it.

The bottom line for me is that I don't really care. The guy was a racist, hateful scumbag and there's no love lost. I feel for his family, but I think the world will be better off without an Andrew Breitbart.

OTOH, the people that think having a Breitbart free world are legion. FR is probably ablaze with therories about someone doing in Breitbart, but they have always been good about projecting their darkest thoughts on others.

Saying "natural causes" is a way of saying what it ISN'T, i.e. UNnatural causes. They believe he died of disease, not as a result of actions. In the realm on natural causes, I believe we can rule out constipation, the man was, after all, a giant ass.

The point I'm making here? To avoid speculation and confusion, they should've waited to announce the cause of death.

I don't quite understand why people are making such a big argument about this. But I tell you, had they waited to announce the cause, then perhaps we wouldn't be on DU speculating about that cause.

386. I read very well, thank you. You apparently don't remember what you typed

" Davey Jones just died and it was reported that he died of a heart attack, not "natural causes." If it is the same thing,... "

Your words, not mine. You most certainly compared the reporting of Davey Jones death with the reporting of Breitbarts death and seemingly don't understand why it was reported differently.

I understand your desire for consistency. I generally prefer it as well. What I am pointing out is that there is a reason to indicate that foul play was not suspected in Breitbart's passing. There would be little reason to expect foul foul play in Davey Jones' death. For someone who spewed as much hate as Breitbart, it would not be unreasonable to consider that he might have pissed the wrong person off.

Your statement on heart attacks is a bit ambiguous with the emphasized "IS", but a heart attack is a natural cause of death so I'm not sure if we agree or disagree there.

Once you go back and read what you typed (perhaps you didn't mean to type what you typed) you might figure out that there is a reason to report that foul play is not suspected.

If you can't help but readi what I post to correct your incorrect notions, it's not my problem to deal with.

If you spent a just minute or two with google, you would see that you are totslly incorrect in saying that a heart attack is not considered natural causes. In fact, it is the most commonly given example when defining natural causes. Homicide, suicide, accidental, natural causes and other. Natural causes is anything related to disease. In case you haven't heard, most heart attacks are caused by disease. Now they can occur as a result of poisoning (homicide) or a blow to the chest (accidental), the VAST majority of heart attacks are caused by disease and thus, natural causes.

Now that we have set aside your confusion and explained it to anyone bothering to read this, we could discuss contradicting oneself. Bringing Davey Jones into the discussion, then denying that you did is a contradiction. Saying that you are going to ignore me, then replying to me is a contradiction. That's a bit odd, consdering your desire that all deaths to be reported exactly the same way.

Otherwise, have a nice weekend, hopefully we have all learned something, and anyone reading has not been lead astray by incorrect information.

65. I too agree

I don't want anyone to die. That's just not how my psyche works. I want the wrong-headed (DINOs, Conservatives, Free Marketeers, etc.) to learn the truth of what their ideology has done to the world and to the virtual slaves in the factories our companies built overseas. And I want them to change their ways and repent their sins against their fellow Man and the Earth. But I'd never wish death upon anyone just because of their political views.

146. I agree in general, but

there are just some people who are out-and-out evil, who will never reform, never change, and will willfully do horrible things to others. Men who do these things need to be stopped--even if it never happens in real life.

Sometimes I imagine the Dick Cheneys, the Karl Roves, Grover Norquists, James Dobsons and other morally condemned people were truly gone, and what amazing things could happen with them gone. A true flushing out of the evil genes in the world could be all we need for a future better than what we have now.

If there is even an iota of redemptive DNA in their bodies, it's one thing. But some of these people are as sick as sociopaths we see articles about every day. Sick and twisted bastards, for whom there is nothing worth saving in the end.

But, as you stated, inside their walled compound they would have every comfort and clean food and water, relaxing palm trees by the pool, etc. I just wonder how much time they'd spend looking at the glass wall with the rising seas on the other side versus sunning themselves poolside with a mint julep.

159. Freepers don't know jack

When someone dies and is under a doctor's care, most of the time an autopsy is waived. Since he died in the hospital, it is likely that he might have been treated for whatever was wrong. I would suggest a heart attack. I was 42 when I had two heart attacks, and as a woman, that was REALLY unusual. Men in their younger years will often have heart attacks--depending on how conscientious that person has been about their health, whether they've smokes or were drinkers, exercising or not--all these things contribute to an early death.

Perhaps one good thing might come out of this if it was a heart attack: it could raise the awareness of early heart disease and the need to take care of one's self ALL your life, not just when you think it's necessary. And a lot of people don't realize that high cholesterol is often inherited, so people should get tested early.

Natural causes? It's possible, even at a young age like 43. He struck me as an exceedingly angry and hostile person, and that certainly isn't good for the body (or soul, for that matter).

Now just you wait. All the wingnuts will soon be screaming, "Obama had him killed! It's a conspiracy!"

208. Also permanent cardiomyopathy caused by cocaine usage...

Cocaine-Related Cardiomyopathy

The fact that subacute, or even chronic, cardiomyopathy may result from the use of cocaine is being increasingly recognized. While most cases of cocaine-related cardiomyopathy have proved to be reversible, others have resulted in permanent cardiac dysfunction or death. However, because morbidity and mortality information associated with cocaine-related cardiomyopathy is based on case reports, it may be underreported. Many deaths in the drug abuse population are ascribed to drug toxicity without further attempts at defining the exact etiology.

I'm thinking this may have caused Whitney "Nippy" Houston's death.

Andrew Breitbart Unleashes A Torrent Of Invective Against Sen. Ted Kennedy’s Legacy On Twitter


Early this morning, news broke that Sen. Ted Kennedy had passed away after serving in the U.S. Senate for nearly 50 years. Soon after, conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart began a sustained assault on Kennedy’s memory, tweeting “Rest in Chappaquiddick.”

Over the course of the next three hours, Breitbart unapologetically attacked Kennedy, calling him a “villain,” “a big ass motherf@#$er,” a “duplicitous bastard” and a “prick.” “I’ll shut my mouth for Carter. That’s just politics. Kennedy was a special pile of human excrement,” wrote Breitbart in one tweet.

182. I think there is a difference

in some cases--rather than stooping to Breitbart's level, it is merely holding up a mirror to his own words. People are funny like that--they often project onto another the things they think of themselves.

In this case, Breitbart was the epitome of what he would call a crusader for the American Way, who would stop at nothing to show complicity by those he believed were his nemeses. Most of us on the left have our own beliefs in this respect--it would have been hard for the right wingnuts to prove most of their propaganda on liberals, but time and time again, what we have intimated about on the right has happened without question.

Breitbart was just another fish in the sea, trying to get bigger and rule that body of water--unfortunately, there are many, many others there who are trying to make that very same leap.

On the left, we believe in unison for the most part, which can be easier to attain and work with.

It isn't just the new DU crowd that goes overboard, it's pretty much been a flaw of DU for most of its existence. I'm glad to see civility here. This is not freeperville and we should never emulate them.

Whatever this man was responsible for is of no consequence at this moment when his family is grieving over the sudden and tragic loss of their loved one. There is no greater pain than they are feeling now and I hope it is a long time before I have to feel that inevitable pain in my life as we all do at some time or another. I hope they have the people they need around them and they can feel some comfort in each other.

Screaming at folks that they're rapists and freaks and animals is not the face of someone deserving respect. I was bullied and and harrassed thru my childhood years until I finally found the moxie to challenge my primary tormentor at age 15. I kicked that persons ass and was afforded respect thereafter. I say one has to live it before one can decry it.
If Breitbart succumbed to "natural causes" instigated by the defamatory barrage he'd been working hard to incite, it seems only fitting to me. While I don't believe in any supernatural powers, I could, at least, fancy that Satan called Andrew home. Now if he'd just call home the rest of his emissaries, the world would be a much nicer place.

In the hours immediately following Senator Ted Kennedy's death, Breitbart called Kennedy a "villain", a "duplicitous bastard", a "prick" and "a special pile of human excrement."

When I saw him in that video two weeks ago he looked so angry and out of control I was worried for him, even though I don't like what he did. It seemed like something was terribly wrong. Maybe he was stressed out about his upcoming legal proceedings. I feel sorry he died with so much hate and anger. I hope he is at peace now and condolences to his family.

90. A William F Buckley he was not; or even a George Will. He brought nothing of substance to

conservative discourse. He had no valid points to offer. No little gems of wisdom that might cause me to ponder and reexamine my assumptions. His only contribution was to lower the level of discussion - to make political thought more shallow, more ignorant, more emotional, more banal and less intelligent and more depraved.

288. Echo what I was thinking.

A 43 year old man does not die of "natural causes" in the ER of a hospital.

Natural causes implies died quietly in his sleep or something. He collapsed while walking his neighborhood and was taken to the ER. That is not natural.

I lost a colleague years ago at age 28 from a brain emoblysm (sp?). That was terrifying to me as there are no symptoms, it just "happens". No one claimed it was natural causes though - they named the incident for what it was.

Can you imagine dying and leaving that kind of legacy? Wow. I hope this gives the other hatemongers pause about their own legacy and makes them clean up their act.

BTW, I wonder who is going to support the pimp O'Keefe and his lawsuit against Olbermann now that Breitbard is gone. Maybe we'll see the real puppetmasters come out from behind the curtain.

216. really surprised to see he was a husband and father.....

as he was filled with so much hate. Hope he didn't transfer that hate to his home life.....

that being said, he was a vile man, who took great pleasure and pride in the downfall of others....

336. So? Then it's arrogant. Again, so? You can't do anything about it

except pearl clutch and complain... and you can see what a deterrent that has been.

This is great news! It made my day! Good riddance to this lowlife POS. He was scum. His voice was toxic. The world is a better place now. I hope James O'Keefe goes soon too!

236. For all those who are dancing on his grave, remember he's

only a drop in the crazy bucket. I'm thinking brain tumor. He was especially crazy recently. But now that he can't do any more harm, let him RIP.

245. Breitbart on the death of Kennedy

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/03/01/1069816/-Use-the-Breitbart-example-#comments

The day Senator Ted Kennedy died here are some of the following quotes from Andrew Breitbart:

“Rest in Chappaquiddick”

Breitbart attacked Kennedy mercilessly calling him a “villain,” “a big ass motherf@#$er,” a “duplicitous bastard” and a “prick.” “I’ll shut my mouth for Carter. That’s just politics. Kennedy was a special pile of human excrement,” Breitbart tweeted.

“How dare you compare Tony Snow & Reagan to Kennedy! Why do you grant a BULLY special status upon his death? This isnt lib v con.”

“Look, this man was granted absolution for nothing. Class, life station played a part but PARTY was everything. GOP couldnt get away with it,” Breitbart tweeted.

“IF a GOP possesses 1/100 of human failings of T. Kennedy he/she is TOAST,” he tweeted.

“In this moment I cant but recognize absolute backwardness of media & society. Bush=EVIL. Ted Kennedy=SAINT. I'm gonna keep fighting’, folks,” Breitbart tweeted.

These were all said by Breitbart on the day Ted Kennedy died.

342. All I have to do is ask god to forgive me and it's slate clean

I can express my opinion and if *I* feel it needs bringing before god, then *I* will handle that when the need arises.

I don't think it rises to that level--it's not that serious.

And hell is a little more crowded today. He was a miserable bastard and anyone with any feeling for this country should be celebrating lustily. The only down side is that he didn't suffer. Those of you weeping over his demise please go over to freeperville, and try not to dampen our celebration

277. When do the conspiracy theories begin?

Obama had him killed because he was too smart!

Obama's evil Muslim brethren planted poison on his mouse!

"The liberals" gave him a dose of stroke-inducing whatever because he was so superior to them.

The CIA had him killed because he was about to expose Obama's plan to take over the world!!



We'll probably learn he died of syphillis or something of that nature. Didn't treat it because he believed healthcare was from the evil socialist commies. More likely a stroke. Of luck.
