On Thursday, we reported that liberals celebrated the death of Andrew Breitbart, sending vile messages over Twitter.
But Matt Taibbi went over the line in a profanity-laced article entitled “Death of a Douche” posted at the Rolling Stone.
“So Andrew Breitbart is dead,” he wrote. “Here’s what I have to say to that, and I’m sure Breitbart himself would have respected this reaction: Good! F**k him. I couldn’t be happier that he’s dead.”
“I say this in the nicest possible way,” he wrote, claiming that he “actually kind of liked” Breitbart, even though he says he wouldn’t want to be “caught within a hundred yards of him without a Haz-Mat suit…”
What Taibbi says he respected was Breitbart’s “shamelessness” and his “highly developed” sense of humor.
He adds (with vulgarity edited):
For instance, it would be dishonest not to tip a hat to him for that famous scene when he hijacked Anthony Weiner’s own self-immolating “apology” press conference, and held up the entire event by standing at the lectern and congratulating himself at length, before Weiner could let the humiliating healing begin.
For that one, brief, shining moment– still one of the most painful-to-watch YouTube spectacles of all time, right there with Mitt Romney’s priceless attempt at singing “Who Let the Dogs Out?” with a group of black voters in Florida in 2008 – Breitbart could legitimately claim to have the biggest, hairiest b***s on earth.
He continues in that vein for much of the article, writing that he found former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s apology to Breitbart “chilling. “[I]f I were Weiner, I wouldn’t have apologized to that f****r even under torture,” Taibbi wrote.
One paragrah, however, reveals the apparent reason for Taibbi’s unhinged, hateful screed. It seems he has a grudge against Breitbart:
Breitbart has written some nasty things about me personally, once contrived to publish my private emails online, and even teamed up with Rush Limbaugh to humorously mis-identify me as a behind-the-scenes marionettist of the “media-Democrat industrial complex” (Breitbart thought I was improperly advising Occupy leaders), but all that’s okay. I think today, it’s safe to stand back and simply recognize that while many people go through their lives without leaving distinguishing marks, Andrew Breitbart definitely had his moments.
The web of links involved in that story is enough to make one’s head spin. The bottom line is that Taibbi is upset he got mentioned in an article that alleges his involvement in some coordination between the media and Occupy Wall Street. That article, by the way, was written by Dana Loesch, not Andrew Breitbart.
Taibbi concludes in his usual profane manner (vulgarity edited):
But he also had enough of a sense of humor to appreciate why someone like me shouldn’t bother to pretend I’m sad he’s dead. He wouldn’t, in my place. So to use one of his favorite words: Good riddance, c********r.* Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
* See the following Breitbart quote: “I like to call someone a raving c**t every now and then, when it’s appropriate, for effect… ‘You c********r.’ I love that kind of language.”
Meanwhile, Breitbart has left behind a grieving widow and four children who will never see their father again.
At the very least, Taibbi could have waited for Breitbart to be buried, but that would have required something most of us call “class.”
Instead, he chose to prove to the world what type of foul-mouthed, unhinged, hate-filled liberal he really is. Apparently, it’s too much to expect some liberals to act like human beings.
Taibbi’s screed only proves that liberalism is an ideology based on hate and rage.
