"A Passionate Defense of Conservative Ideals"
HATING BREITBART is a documentary that follows the late journalist, news executive, and conservative-libertarian pundit Andrew Breitbart before he died on March 1, 2012. HATING BREITBART is an inspiring rallying cry for conservatives and libertarians, including Christian evangelicals, to continue the passionate fight that animated Andrew Breitbart, but there is some foul language, so extreme caution is advised.
HATING BREITBART is a documentary that follows the late journalist, news executive and conservative-libertarian pundit Andrew Breitbart who died March 1, 2012. It has a strong moral, patriotic worldview supporting limited government and exposing the Democratic Party and the left wing’s smear machine against conservatives, especially Tea Party members. There is some foul language, however.
The documentary opens with Andrew complaining about the media, including Hollywood and national “journalists,” “dictating the terms of the narrative in this country.” He says he’s also sick of them mocking citizens in “Middle America.” The movie then cuts to people in the news media crudely mocking the grassroots Tea Party movement and calling them “racists.” Back to Breitbart complaining that these are the kind of smear tactics that leaders on the Left constantly level at conservatives and libertarians, including Christian evangelicals.
Using clips of Breitbart’s activities in the three years before he died, the documentary exposes these lies and slanders from the media and from the Left, including major Democrat Party leaders and supporters of President Barack Obama. It also shows how leftists and the media ignored Breitbart’s exposure of the corruption in a key campaign group supporting Democratic Party candidates like Obama and their policies. Finally, it shows how they distorted one of Breitbart’s columns about apparent racism in the anti-discrimination group, the NAACP. The NAACP used to be a dedicated civil rights group, but it has become a corrupt institution that excuses the failures of liberal policies in helping African Americans succeed while always condemning any successful black person who takes a conservative stance on issues, such as Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Interviews with supporters and critics of Breitbart help complete the picture of this super-smart, compassionate “rabble rouser.”
“You declared war on us,” Breatibart tells the Left and the mainstream media at one point. “You declared war on me. . . . It’s that simple.” Later, he adds, “What the Left has stood with political correctness is to try to get those with whom they disagree to shut up. . . . We have to confront these people. . . . We have an obligation to fight back.”
Andrew Breitbart was a vanguard of the “New Media.” For instance, he became editor for journalist Matt Drudge’s website “The Drudge Report” in the 1990s and helped Arianna Huffington (when she was a Republican) with creating “The Huffington Post.” He then went on to create his own cutting-edge websites, starting with Breitbart TV followed by Big Hollywood, Big Government and Big Journalism. Over the years, several of MOVIEGUIDE®’s editors, including Publisher Ted Baehr, met and talked with Andrew at multiple functions. Andrew was a very personable and passionate man with, unlike most of today’s leftist journalists running the national “news” media, a heart for real news. Though he admitted he wasn’t a “religious conservative” and sympathized with some libertarian notions, he expresses sympathy in the documentary with the positions of “social conservatives.” For example, Andrew was a critic of Planned Parenthood, which doesn’t report some rapists or pedophiles to the police and promotes the killing of babies in the ninth month of pregnancy and even beyond. Just before he died, he told a mutual friend that he had found faith in Jesus Christ and wanted to be baptized in every state in the USA.
Ironically, the New York Times just recently vindicated one story Breitbart was pursuing, about massive fraud in the Obama administration’s Dept. of Agriculture (see http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/new-york-times-andrew-breitbart-90681.html). Also, recent reports have confirmed that President Obama and his people in the Internal Revenue Service targeted Tea Party groups, Christian evangelicals, and other conservatives who oppose their policies. Once again, an investigation confirms conservative suspicions about big government and corrupt, fraudulent liberal policies and principles!
HATING BREITBART is an inspiring rallying cry for conservatives and libertarians, including Christian evangelicals, to continue the passionate fight that animated Andrew Breitbart. It has a strong moral, patriotic worldview that extols truth, justice, limited government, liberty, and fiscal responsibility. It exposes the lies and slanders of the Left, which are the primary methods by which Democrat Party flunkies and other leftists stop citizens and voters from becoming conservatives. However, there is some foul language, plus some bleeped “f” words. In addition, there’s talk about the two journalists who posed as a pimp and his prostitute in order to expose the corruption in one of the Democratic Party and the Left’s activist groups. For these and other reasons, MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution for HATING BREITBART, especially for children.
