Was Andrew Breitbart Jewish?

Yes, Andrew Breitbart was a Jew. He died suddenly March 1.

The conservative pundit said he "grew up in Brentwood (i.e., Los Angeles, California) a secular liberal Jew" who celebrated his bar mitzvah and "has the tape to prove it."

In an effort to discredit the congressman, in June 2011, Breitbart publicized personal tweets and emails sent by Rep. Anthony Weiner to various women.

Fox News reported:
News of Breitbart's death reverberated on Capitol Hill and on the presidential campaign trail. Rick Santorum said he was "crestfallen."
"What a powerful force," Santorum said. "What a huge loss, in my opinion, for our country and certainly for the conservative movement." 
New Yorker magazine had profiled him earlier in brutally unflattering terms.
Rage Machine: Andrew Breitbart’s empire of bluster
by Rebecca Mead

On Sunday, March 21st, the day that the House voted to pass health-care reform, Andrew Breitbart, the conservative Internet entrepreneur, was thousands of miles away, at home in Westwood, a neighborhood of Los Angeles. Breitbart, who in the past year has become a fixture on Fox News and a regular at Tea Party events, spends a lot of time on the road. In the preceding weeks, he had addressed the California Republican Spring Convention, in Santa Clara—“It’s warfare to save the soul of the United States of America,” he told the audience—and had introduced Sarah Palin at the National Tea Party Convention, in Nashville...more...

Breitbart is not a "gotcha politician" because he's not a politician. (Of course, leftists like you think the government is everything, so there's that.) On the other hand, exposing Weiner for the sick creep he is certainly brings value to the world.

You, on the other hand, are reduced to making cheap cracks about your governor's weight and playing a bit of valueless "gotcha" yourself. All in pursuit of an ideology that would end up costing you your religious freedom and even life if it could. For shame.

I must agree with Tzvee, Gov. Christie is a blimp - more like Zeppelin. It's hard to take such an elected official seriously on matters of fiscal health, when clearly his weight is evidence of an overwhelming disregard for his personal health.

Gov. Christie took money out of my pocket, and when caught said he did nothing wrong, but here is the money back. On that model nobody would ever be convicted of theft, if they just gave back the loot. And he does appear to everyone to be morbidly obese, no gotcha revelation needed.

Weiner committed no crime. Anybody who looks to congress for a moral model is misguided to say the least.

Muckraker Breitbart makes money from spreading salacious gossip. Not the kind of value that helps anyone that I know.

The Nazi party was a socialist party. The communists were communists.

You see, socialism doesn't work in a democratic society. Because in order for socialism to work, you need to control the people.

We are headed that way.

Andrew is trying to stop it.

I hope he succeeds.

Remember, the Jews in Germany in the 1920's thought it would never happen to them what would happen a decade later under the socialist Nazi party.

We also think it will never happen to us.

People attack him for his past criticisms of ACORN's corruption,
and his early indictment of Anthony
Weiner, but Breitbart was proven correct in both cases.

Of course, he wasn't always right and could spin things like any other political commentator.

(On a minor note, he was raised
Jewish by his adoptive parents,
but was ethnically Irish).
