44. Just Because Breitbart is a total douche bag...
doesn't mean that the kid who's firing the questions is that
much better. If Breitbart doesn't know who he's talking
about, he can't answer. I don't know about you, but just
because I'm right doesn't mean I can't can't be a douche bag
too. And yeah, I'm an alcoholic cocaine addict, but it
doesn't make this guy any better. I can (and did) get sober.
This kid's still an a-hole with no excuse.

52. On the other hand....
It was a non-denial denial that Andrew Breibart-

1) Was a Cocaine user

2) Slept with either Male or Female and possibly both types of prostitutes

3) Had a thug go after a Muslim woman like a dog after meat

4) Is a total DOUCHE BAG.

But, we figured that one out, based on what a fucking prostitute this asshole already is and how he willing to do the bidding for ANYONE, ANYTIME AND FOR ANY PRICE.

76. Breitbart brings it on himself. He got a taste of his OWN medicine.
We Democrats admire & expect classiness, but having had 24/7 media coverage of the Republicans' underhandedness being presented as though it's NORMAL & SMART for the past 20 years, I find these have-a-dose-of-your-own-medicine moments VERY REFRESHING.

8. He's left a lot of drunken rants all over the internet
so, it's pretty much either he's completely insane or he has a drinking problem.

Or both ~

5. Love it
This guy turned the video into a version of TMZ. Now he is
getting a taste of his own medicine. The young man proved a
point which is that repeated aggressive questioning of anyone
is something beneath the dignity of national political news.
Brietbart will turn this around against Netroots but who
cares? The days of playing hardball with a foam bat are over.

51. That mouthy female never did get why the questions themselves were unimportant.It was the treatment
stupid.The hounding, the brow beating was just a taste of his own medicine. Breitbart's motivations for even being at netroots nation were undoubtedly evil. He lacks a conscience.

but it's the cocaine and prostitutes that will bring Breitbart down.

(Or at least give him the hits on Google)

Would that Breitbart make the connection that the very strategies these amazing people used against him are chief among the reasons why he is vilified by so many.

Would love to see an interview with those young whippersnappers.

72. Any idea who the woman was who kept harassing him? Was she working for breitbart?
Gee, too bad you can't make it through a conference lobby anymore without stirring up a small shitstorm, breitbart. And why weren't you prepared with the proper credentials if you wanted in there so badly and showed up there with this sense of entitlement as though you had some divine right to be there?

Good that he gets shit now. GREAT that he gets shit now. I hope it follows him relentlessly wherever he goes, the way he's harrassed people and stirred up shit about them. In Weiner's case, of course, it turns out to be true (THANKS A SHITLOAD, Anthony Weiner!), but in Shirley Sherrod's case it was anything but. Just like the ACORN crap was proven to be bogus once somebody finally took the time to look into it, too late for ACORN, though.

10. Omg, that was maginificent!! Breitbart getting a taste of his
own medicine, a small sample of what he did to Rep. Weiner!!

'You are falsely accusing me of ...' ~ :rofl:

That was the point, wasn't it?

So he wouldn't answer the question of whether or not he slept with a prostitute. I guess, using his own standards, that means he did.

'Coward'! No truer word was ever spoken.

Who was the questioner?? He was GOOD!

68. What it says to me is Breitbart doesn't know if the questioner had video evidence
of him with a prostitute/using cocaine - the same trap he laid for Weiner, getting a denial, then producing the evidence. If he KNEW there was no evidence, he'd have denied it, ergo...

He also had a female layer of protection who clearly didn't work.

but then, even later, on his site:
oops!

70. There was a point there, as Breitbart was heading into the hallway,
where he started to turn and I thought he was going to throw a punch himself - the security guy stopped him.

I don't wish harm on anyone, but I'd take a punch from him if it would put him in jail.

45. Right vs. Left has become it's own ridiculous industry
The rift keeps growing. I'm getting so sick of R's vs. D's and vice-versa. It accomplishes absolutely NOTHING except get people even angrier. Breitbart is a total douche who shouldn't be even remotely as famous as he is. The guy confronting him here has no agenda except to make Breitbart look foolish. Ok, it made me smile...now what? Yell, yell, yell, scream, scream, scream...because talk radio and cable news tells us to. Pick a side, you have to pick a side. Whole Foods or Wal-Mart? Prius or Hummer? Pearl Jam or Toby Keith? Sean Penn or Jon Voight? I'm SICK OF IT. In our never-ending quest to be BETTER than others, even our political and social beliefs are just commodities now.

60. Solutions are neither L or R. It's just what works.Also,It's the greedy few vs the rest of us
with a L-R pretense to disguise them picking our damn pockets.

The power plays you are so 'sick' of is really just blow back against authoritarianism. Read John Dean's book on the authoritarian personality and it becomes obvious. There is no middle ground here so you better pick a side and if you don't like all the screaming then don't scream...but don't be dominated either. After all, we accept a lot of things we don't have to like.

79. I agree with you
I guess my real point was the truly amazing job the Power has done dividing us into huddled camps. Sides in politics can be a good thing, ambushing Breitbart with aggressive questions and a camera is just theater. Sure he deserves it, but I'm sick of the air of "triumph" over something like this like it's solved anything. The fringes get all the attention, that's the only reason his name is even known to any of us.

The "sides" would be more meaningful if they were at all organic. We've chosen our sides based on political leaders who don't give a crap about any of us. The Democrats in the senate and congress care about average Americans? Bullsh*t. Maybe Bernie Sanders, and that's why he's an Independent. So all we do is hunker down and do "left" things and feel like we're "making a difference," then roll our eyes over those "other" people doing "right" things that are truly destroying our country. It's the way the Power wants it...keep us at each others' throats while they steal as much as they can. Every single person in this country who earns less than $200,000 a year SHOULD be a registered Democrat. Why aren't they? Because they're either, A - too drunk on Jesus and conservative social issues to realize what's really going on or, B - they realize Democrats are just shills for big money, same as Republicans, and they'll vote for the lesser of two evils when the time comes.

Yes, watching Breitbart getting a taste of his own medicine was funny. But funny in kind of a sad way; sad that we even know who he is. Or care.

He's the poster child for the way we all get our knowledge now...from either one completely partisan side or the other. There is no truth in media anymore, it's only which side will help confirm your bias. Which channel will update your talking points for the next dinner party; or monster truck rally.

58. If only he had the name.
This could have been a lot better. As it was, the reporter made himself look juvenile and unprepared, and unable to admit his own shortcoming. As someone upthread said, not much better than Breitbart himself, who actually can't answer the initial accusation without that critical missing info.

Meh.

64. That's not what is seen by those unfamiliar with Breitbart's methods.
All I'm saying is, you have to sink really low to make Breitbart look like the adult in the room, and somehow this guy managed it.

78. dream on. he looked just GREAT, didn't he. especially when he refused to
give a blanket 'no' to those questions about coke and prostitutes

let's hope those non-answers are tossed in his face EVERY time he skulks out in public

do you support, btw, legal action by Shirley Sherrod?

81. Of course.
Yes, there's probably some there there with regard to coke and/or prostitutes. And I think both ACORN and Sherrod have legitimate greivances with Breitbart's lies and should have some legal recourse. I was even willing to believe Weiner was hacked based on Breitbart's track record and sleazy associations. So you don't need to insinuate that I'm somehow on Breitbart's side. I've been here for nine years and don't feel I should have to establish my own bona fides, for fuck's sake.

It is possible to hate Breitbart and all he stands for while simultaneously seeing this clip as childish and unprofessional. It's legitimate to ask who you're referring to when you're accused of associating with someone else, and if this reporter simply HAD THE NAME of the person, this would have come across a lot better. Even a simple "I'll get that to you, then will you respond?" would have made all the difference. And shouting random accusations repeatedly while being unwilling to listen to their response, even if Breitbart deserves that treatment, is no way to win over anyone who is undecided or unfamiliar with Breitbart's M.O.

65. Ryan Clayton has just shown YOU how to deal wuith fascistic bullies
If you're a registered YouTuber, go to YouTube and vote it up.

Watch the video and remember: THIS is how you deal with fascist bullies. THIS is what Beltway Democrats need to start doing. THIS is how you win arguments -- not by being polite, not by being deferential, not by opening yourself to being walked over.

There are so many great moments in the video, but teh one that sticks out is Breirbart whining about being shown the door because he didn't have credentials.

82. My Apologies to @AndrewBreitbart (hah hahhahahahah LOL)
This'll be fun. Preview: "As far as the confrontation at Netroots, I am unapologetically proud for giving Breitbart a taste of his own medicine. It needs to happen more often."

Thanks for all the back-up and support ya'll - nice to know there's some fellow aggressive progressives out here with me.

Keep up the fight!

Sharing is caring...
My Apologies to @AndrewBreitbart on @opednews http://bit.ly/l7V6yG
