Don’t rush to embrace conspiracy theories

By Tom Quiner

Conservative pit bull, Andrew Breitbart, is dead.

Andrew Breitbart, 1969 - 2012

Within minutes of his death, the conservative blogosphere began to light up with the suggestion that he was killed because he possessed damning video footage of President Obama’s college days.

I encourage my fellow conservatives to cool it. There are two reasons for this:

1. We don’t have any facts at this point. Mr. Breitbart had a history of heart disease. By all appearances, he died of natural causes. Let’s let the Medical Examiner do his job and determine cause of death and put this matter to rest. If he finds something funny in the results, then let the process unfold. But don’t jump the gun.

2. Conspiracy theories detract from critical issues at stake in America. Mr. Obama has implemented a bold and destructive plan for America. It is crucial for Republicans to sharpen the message on their vision for America, which they are not doing very well at all. Conspiracy theories will only hurt the conservative movement, not help it.

Let’s keep our emotions in check until we know something definitive.

    I agree wholeheartedly. Yet….. 🙂

    Kidding aside, the conservatives have lost a true hero who boldly exposed the agenda of the radical left. He will not soon be forgotten.

    Our prayers go out to his family.
