Andrew Breitbart’s Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World! was published just one year before his untimely death at 43 in 2012. In this book, Breitbart charts his political evolution, a critical point being the 1991 Supreme Court hearings for Clarence Thomas.
As he watched the TV coverage of the assault on Clarence Thomas’ character, Breitbart experienced an epiphany: “This was the exact point where I realized that it was not just that I disagreed with the Democratic Party but, more important, that the media were its dominant partner in crime. The national disgrace that was the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings, for me, changed everything” (p. 30).
Indeed, Breitbart dedicates his book to both his father, Gerald Breitbart, and Clarence Thomas.
Now Charlie Kirk in the title of an article published today in Breitbart News presciently asks: “Clarence Thomas’s ‘High Tech Lynching’ Awakened Andrew Breitbart; What will the Kavanaugh Witch Trial Produce?”
