Kathy Shaidle Assesses the Legacy of Andrew Breitbart

It's an excellent interview all around, but Kathy makes some especially perceptive comments toward the end where she mentions that Breitbart was an entrepreneur who had set himself up so that he couldn't be fired. That's a crucial point. Because when you work for someone else your right to free speech in inherently restricted by the potential impact (or fallout) of such speech on the employing institution. William Jacobson alluded to this the other day when he mentioned the "restraints" that hindered so many of us conservatives from fully speaking out and challenging the left's fascism.

In any case, more on that later.

The video c/o Blazing Cat Fur:

EXTRA: I'm linking to Protein Wisdom again for a reminder of how effective Breitbart really was --- and also as a reminder of what we're up against. Don't let Andrew's death have been in vain. Keep the flame burning and hoist the banner of liberty. That's the legacy. To keep up the fight.
