I had the pleasure of covering Andrew Breitbart as he made an appearance in Lexington Mass. on the subject of his war with the media.
I arrived about 10 minutes before the event started and was let in as “media”, Quite a few of the 60+ guests were dressed up a bit, Ironic because Andrew was the West Coast casual all the way:
Before things got started I managed to grab a very quick interview with Richard one of the Attendees:
When Andrew began it seemed at first that this would be a repeat of his last CPAC speech, but it became clear that he was more interested in talking about the cultural aspects of his fight against the left.
It really amazed me to see that his thesis was a belief I’ve long-held, namely that the far left decided the best way to divide and bring down the US was by hitting what united us, namely our Judeo-Christian Culture and as he put it “Translated haves and have nots to oppressors and oppressed”.
Of course the church culture had to be the first to go because it is a uniting agent that crosses class and wealth lines so effectively.
Andrew stressed that he is in fact a secular Jew but he recognized the war on culture for what it is and recognized that as it took decades to reach this point it would take further decades to reverse it.
And he didn’t hesitate to note that it was the tea party, not the Republican that had driven change.
He took a series of questions after his talk and posted with admirers signing autographs and talking more
I’ll have more video up later in the evening that I’ll post over the next day or so, Andrew will be in NE for another day or two, I hope if time permits to have him call into the show but that’s a bit iffy.
