Breitbart’s blogger brigade pays tribute, remembers fallen conservative general

On Saturday night Conservative bloggers gathered to pay tribute to the late Andrew Breitbart, the colorful conservative activist and founder of the “Bigs,” that stable of websites through which he articulated his “punk rock conservative” message.

The Daily Caller was invited to the celebration of Breitbart’s life and filmed recollections of those who knew Andrew Breitbart as both colleague and friend.

“Andrew Breitbart was a force of nature, a jokester, smart and kind. He assembled a group of lost souls who were battling against corruption and became our shield. He took the blows, so we could be heard. Andrew’s life force was so strong, he could suck the air out of a room just by being Andrew. He was so alive and enjoyed every minute of it.”

“Andrew was a fellow warrior and a friend. He lived to fight. I am a better person because I knew him.”
