Michael Savage: Was Breitbart Assassinated?


michael-savageNoting that the cause of Andrew Breitbart’s unexpected death yesterday was being examined by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office, talk-radio host Michael Savage raised the question of whether the conservative media powerhouse – who recently announced he had videos that could politically damage President Obama – was murdered.

On his top-rated show today, Savage played an audio clip of Breitbart telling an audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington last month that he had obtained videos that shed light on Obama’s ties to radicals in the early 1980s who helped propel him to the presidency.

“Maybe my overly active imagination kicked into overdrive,” Savage told his listeners of his decision to raise the question. “But you heard what Breitbart said – he has videos … we’re going to vet the president.”

Breitbart reportedly was walking near his home in Brentwood, Calif., just after midnight Thursday morning when he collapsed. A neighbor saw him fall and called 911. Emergency crews tried to revive him and rushed him to the emergency room at the UCLA Medical Center.

It’s entirely plausible, Savage acknowledged, that Breitbart simply collapsed of a heart attack because of overwork and a reported history of health problems.

“I’m asking a crazy question,” Savage said, “but so what? We the people want an answer. This was not an ordinary man. If I don’t ask this question, I would be remiss.”

Breitbart told the CPAC crowd last month that the videos would reveal Obama during a time when he was meeting a “bunch of silver ponytails” – referring to Weather Underground terror group members Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.

Ayers and Dohrn reportedly launched Obama’s political career with a fundraiser in their Chicago home.

Savage noted that Breitbart had dinner with Ayers and Dorhn three weeks ago at the couple’s Hyde Park residence on Chicago’s South Side, which is near Obama’s home. Breitbart was invited by Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson, who won an Internet auction for a dinner party with the couple.

“I’ve got videos – this election we’re going to vet him,” Breitbart said at CPAC, promising they would show how “racial division and class warfare are central” to the “hope and change” that Obama”sold in 2008.”

“He threatened the president at CPAC with video that could derail the president’s campaign,” Savage said.

“I pray it was natural causes, but we’ll never know the truth.”

Savage said that if Breitbart’s colleagues have the videos, they should post them as soon as possible and make them viral “or they’ll never see the light of day.”

Savage said he hadn’t spoken with Breitbart for the past two years, but he recalled the media maven’s visit to his home in the Bay Area.

“He spoke for three straight hours,” Savage said. “I was unable to say a word.”

Savage also attended a party at Breitbart’s Los Angeles home.

“I told him two years ago to get a body guard. Never be alone in the street,” Savage said.

Savage, the author of the bestselling novel “Abuse of Power,” put on his novelist hat and speculated about ways a murderer could remain undetected by inducing a heart attack that didn’t leave any traces.

A caller from Savage’s native New York City said there’s a simple way to find out what happened.

“If the tapes come out, he died of a heart attack,” the caller said. “If the tapes don’t come out, they whacked him.”

  1. The biggest proof that he was assassinated is the way the left is trying to silence anyone asking the question by demeaning their sanity…. That’s what the left does when they disagree, they silence. For Breitbart only killing him was enough to silence him, by most just mocking them is adequate because nobody wants to be regarded as an eccentric….

    Can I say for certain he was assassinated? No, (I even know an 18 year old that had a fatal heart attack) a man in his early forties can have a fatal heart attack, but it seems a wee bit suspicious if you know what I mean. In Russia it’s very common for dissidents to die from ‘heart attacks’. They even tried poisoning Yuschenko (Ukraines former [non left] president) but he narrowly survived the attempted assassination. His face was more wrinkled than an esrog after he consumed the planted poison.

  2. I think it’s a strong possibilty. Don’t put it past the Demoncrats! Remember how all those who critized Bill Clinton suddenly died? We all know what Rahm Emanuel did to his opponents!

  3. That day I heard several right wing hosts like Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt bring up that he had heart troubles. The next day, when Mike Gallagher mentioned this theory HH couldn’t call fast enough to disabuse him of this.

    Let’s see if the clips come out next week. If they do…

    Notice that “we liberals” don’t lower to the depths of this “discussion?.” There is no reasoning with crazed people.
