So, I’m out of “SO?” shirts and the grand tally is $17,910 going to the Breitbart’s Children’s Trust.
The back story is here. In short, after he died, I was worried his enemies would see it as a victory so I made t-shirts that would carry on the message. I wanted people to keep talking about stuff the way he did, with no holds barred. Today there are about 600 people walking around with Breitbart conversation pieces.
I’d like to say to thanks to everyone who contributed. I charged $40 of which 75% was profit and gave 100% of that to the family. I was surprised how many people were eager to help. Not just old conservatives but young punks.
Death to Traitors made the shirts for a price that enabled us to make them high quality and these kids regularly volunteered to ship them.
That’s what was so great about Breitbart. He came from the liberal world so he understood what it means to be inclusive but he also realized they were a bunch of hypocrites when it comes to the facts. This is something children of the information age can relate to. When Breitbart was asked what made him cross over to the dark side, he said he woke up one day and thought, “What would Andrew Breitbart do?” From that day forward he did whatever he wanted to without worrying how it would be perceived. A few weeks after saying this, I ran into a young punk couple in Albany, NY and this was the girl’s tattoo.
I’m not worried about Andrew Breitbart disappearing any time soon. He left too indelible a mark. In a sense, he’s more popular than ever and unlike the aging boomers at MSNBC, it’s with people who are only getting started.
The check and the shirts are discussed here at the post-game wrap up (41:57).
