Breitbart’s Ghost: Obama Hung Out With Commies Like Studs Terkel

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

'Working' hard or hardly 'working'?Well, this is just a terrible disappointment. After all our excited yammerings on what goods the prematurely late American blogger Andrew Breitbart might have got on Our Obammerz, it seems the best Sir Breitbart could come up with was … he sat on a panel with Communists like beloved, Pulitzer Prize-winning American historian and author Studs Terkel. I mean, just listen at the titles of Terkel’s best-selling “books,” and you can see the type of anti-American pinko slut he was: The Great War, My American Century, Giants of Jazz, Working. (To be fair to Breitbart, though, Terkel also wrote Race: What Blacks and Whites Think and Feel About the American Obsession, and that does have a certain Kenyan Mau-Mau anti-colonialist ring.)

So that’s how non-insane people know Terkel, but how does Breitbart know Terkel? Would it surprise you, “differently”? Here is a Thing, that Breitbart “wrote,” as an explainer of the Dastardly Villainism of Obama copanelist Terkel, at some panel they were both on, in the ’90s:

Studs Terkel: A sponsor of the Scientific and Cultural Conference for World Peace in 1949, which was arranged by a Communist Party USA front organization known as the National Council of the Arts, Sciences, and Professions.

Yep, that’s what he was famous for. And what does Breitbart make of this Red (guilt by) association?

The reason that Obama’s Alinskyite past, and his many appearances in political photography and video from the 1990s, are conspicuously missing from the national dialogue is that State Senator Barack Obama’s reinvention as a reasonable and moderate Democratic politician could not withstand scrutiny of his political life.

Because the mainstream media did not explore his roots, the American public remains largely ignorant of the degree to which Obama’s work with ACORN and his love of Alinsky were symbolic of his true political will.

We would explain this more but does anyone besides K-Lo at all care? Your editrix is actually kind of saddened (on the real) that this is Breitbart’s legacy; you can’t even edit that shit into a terrible libel! Mr. Breitbart, we expected better — something a little more long-knives “Rules for Radicals” — as your screamy shrieky swan song.

Goodnight, sweet prince. Better luck … oh.

[Big Government]

I'm starting to think that Andrew died of boredom.

chascates March 5, 2012 at 8:05 pm

Apparently the turning point in his life was the fact that the entire media conspired with Bill Clinton to cover up his affair in the White House. He decided then and there to present the truth to the American people. By lying, editing video and audio tapes, and by enlisting every C- and D-list rightwing fucktard to promote his idiocy.

Just as our Founders intended.

Doktor Zoom March 5, 2012 at 10:15 pm

Wait, you mean to say Clinton had an affair in the White House? I am shocked to hear this previously covered-up news!

Generation[redacted] March 6, 2012 at 9:46 am

Lies. I won't believe it until the liberal media reports on it.

Callyson March 5, 2012 at 8:44 pm

He's starting to kill me with boredom.

Biel_ze_Bubba March 5, 2012 at 9:13 pm

I think the conflict between his intellect and his soul escalated into a knife fight … and they both died.

RavenRant March 5, 2012 at 9:52 pm

There is a flaw in your theory: No intellect, no soul.

Perhaps the knife fight was between his ego and his incoherent rage?

Chet Kincaid March 5, 2012 at 9:18 pm

If Obama's "true political will" is Marxist/Leninist, how come he hasn't done anything remotely left wing in the past three years?

Chichikovovich March 5, 2012 at 8:06 pm

He's lulling the Republicans into a false true sense of security.

horsedreamer_1 March 5, 2012 at 8:14 pm

I see you subscribe to Wayne La Pierre's Reynolds Wrap.

arihaya March 5, 2012 at 8:16 pm

true story: wingnuts, for example NRA, said that this is just a plot to give him a second term. And then after that Obama will confiscate guns from all white men and force their women to watch his enormous ICBM

Veritas78 March 5, 2012 at 9:29 pm

I don't think any force will be required. My guess is they would be excited to see an actual launch, for a change.

Generation[redacted] March 6, 2012 at 9:48 am

And as any insecure white woman will tell you, Michelle is going to seduce their men and steal them away (at least that's what we fantasize).

I can't believed that republicans aren't doing backflips over President O.; he is about the closest thing to a moderate republican as they could want.

MissNancyPriss March 6, 2012 at 1:18 am

except for the whole "black thing"

RavenRant March 6, 2012 at 2:51 am

And the "Moderate Republicans are exactly the same as Marxists/Leninists/Stalinists" problem.

Negropolis March 5, 2012 at 10:04 pm

It's crazy. Every time I hear them scream "socialist!" all I can think about is his crown jewel: healthcare. Damn-near the entire bill are things Republicans have proposed over time. The very idea of a mandate, the central feature of the bill, is a "personal responsibility" Republican talking point. About the only major thing remotely Democratic about it is that the industry must pick up high-risk buyers.

BerkeleyBear March 5, 2012 at 10:36 pm

And cover children until 25, and actually spend 80 cents on the dollar on care, and not make individuals pay out of pocket for preventative care. But yeah, a lot of the package has been trumpeted by the GOP at one point or another. Although now they say they only did that to prevent really horrible Dem ideas like single payer – they didn't actually mean what they were saying.

TheMightyHaltor March 5, 2012 at 11:28 pm

Right. Notice McCain didn't say shit about "Romneycare" in the 2008 primary. That's because almost all Republicans loved Romneycare until Obama adopted a similar stance. If Obama came out in support of the Defense of Marriage Act tomorrow, I'd half expect Utah to legalize gay marriage by Friday. As infuriating as Obama capitulations are sometimes, he's painted the GOP into a very tight corner of crazy that'll be hard to escape.

MissNancyPriss March 6, 2012 at 1:19 am

and that the president is black

RavenRant March 6, 2012 at 2:52 am

Like the Confederacy, Breitfart Died of a Theory. Bury him next to Joe McCarthy and Jeff Davis, they'll be keeping each other company in Hell.

SorosBot March 5, 2012 at 8:07 pm

"Because the mainstream media did not explore his roots"

Really, man whose death has made the country a much better place? Really? Remember the fake controversies about Rev. Wright or Bill Ayers? Remember the countless stupid analyses of Obama's upbringing, his time as a community organizer, etc, etc,? Obama in 2008 faced more inquiries into his roots than any other presidential candidate, by far.

Chichikovovich March 5, 2012 at 8:11 pm

Remember when the journalist flew out to Indonesia to investigate whether Obama's childhood school was really a radical madrassa as some lunatics were claiming or just the completely ordinary secular school it turned out to be? That was part of the roots non-examining.

horsedreamer_1 March 5, 2012 at 8:15 pm

Secular? I thought it was a Jesuit school.

CessnaDriver March 5, 2012 at 9:33 pm

They took non-catholic kids and taught a non-religious curriculum. The poor catholic kids got the shaft with extra classes.

Deportably_Jose March 5, 2012 at 10:58 pm

I'm surprised the Catholics put up with that flagrant violation of their freedom of religion.

TheMightyHaltor March 5, 2012 at 11:34 pm

That explains why there aren't many Catholics in Indonesia.

SorosBot March 5, 2012 at 8:56 pm

Yeah, but investigating the fucking grade school a candidate attended is just so routine in our elections. Right? They should have dug harder and looked at his kindergarten.

Chichikovovich March 5, 2012 at 9:54 pm

And they didn't even track down the tapes from his mother's transvaginal ultrasounds.

Spurning Beer March 5, 2012 at 9:03 pm

I'm recalling the widespread attention to the drunk driving arrest history of another candidate. Can't remember his initial….

Chichikovovich March 5, 2012 at 9:12 pm

Is that the same candidate who never gave an explanation of apparently going AWOL from the Texas Air National Guard during a war? But as I recall the whole unexplained-to-this-day episode was completely irrelevant because Dan Rather got fooled by some forged documents.—

Generation[redacted] March 6, 2012 at 9:50 am

And that taught us NOT to look into his past, because they will destroy you if you try.

Then there was the spectacularly deep and through investigation into the murder of Michael Dutton Douglas.

You know what I think is odd about that tricycle? Those little triangular projections over the front wheel. They look very space-age, but have no actual function–there's no fender there.

Somehow, this seems like some kind of metaphor about Breitbart's media empire, but I'm not quite sure…

CessnaDriver March 5, 2012 at 9:36 pm

I am sooo glad that no pics exist of me riding a tricycle.

mayor_quimby March 5, 2012 at 10:05 pm

And, here I was thinking he was a Kenyan-Somali pirate.

He's driving one of those foreign British Morgan tricycles instead of a good NASCAR four-wheeler. No wonder he bailed out the British car industry…Oh, wait…

D'AAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!

Biel_ze_Bubba March 5, 2012 at 9:17 pm

If an inquiry doesn't find that he's a Kenyan-born Muslin socialist nazi, it doesn't count.

If only the mainstream media had more closely scrutinized Obama's votes to legalize infanticide….

arihaya March 5, 2012 at 8:07 pm

Let it go my friend. You don't need the bad karma over the likes of him. Karma can be one very harsh beeotch, as he suddenly and most definitively learned.

redarmyzombie March 6, 2012 at 3:17 am

You know, it occurred to me that while me may not have liked the man, he was still a human being on this earth with family and friends who loved him; so I think, in the interest of human dignity and respect, we should take this time, and hold a moment of silence.

Well, that should do it! Now, who wants to hear the one about Breitbart and the goat on Viagra?

When the "in memorium" lists come out in December, he won't be on them.

Jukesgrrl March 5, 2012 at 10:22 pm

A worm?!?! My God!! How can you say that!! The "Important American Actress" Patricia Heaton was "devastated" to learn of Breitbart's passing. She tweeted to her Tweatons (no shit, she calls her subscribers that), "Sobbed all the way to work this morning. My dear friend and fearless warrior Andrew Breitbart, has passed away. Can't stop crying."

She memorialized him in detail as "the shoulder to cry on, the coach who inspired, the leader who was fearless … He did everything with such aplomb, with such joie de vivre, with such a jolly chutzpah that can only come from someone who is both Jewish and Irish!" [Aren't some of them Democrats??]

To illustrate how inspirational her leader was, she then spent the weekend piling on Sandra Fluke. Some of her advice to the Georgetown student: "G-Gal: you’ve given yer folks great gift for Mother’s/Father’s Day! Got up in front of whole world & said I’m having tons of sex- pay 4 it!" and "Hey G-Town: stop buying toothpaste, soap, and shampoo! You'll save money, and no one will want to sleep with you!"

By this morning, she had followed Rushbo into Apologyville (one might expect inspired by ABC, the network that airs her sitcom). "Mea culpa! We have diff opinions but I was too flippant in my attempt at humor … I was not showing Christ's love [but] I am not backing down on my position." [Ackkk]

Having to put up with that mindless crap on a regular basis is probably what drove her co-star on Everybody Loves Raymond, the great actor and suspected leftist Peter Boyle, into HIS early grave.

RavenRant March 5, 2012 at 10:31 pm

This 'Happy Warrior' crap is aggravating. Not a warrior of any kind, just a gutless, twink chickenhawk like 99% of the 'macho' right.

studs terkel was a wonder and i still miss his voice rasping from my radio.

barack obama sat on a panel with other people who 'thought about things' in conjunction with a theatrical production in a large city with a vibrant arts community. panels of 'people with thoughts' and 'the exchange of ideas' and cross arts pollination are what civilizations do.

not that i would expect wingtards to understand any of that.

Doktor Zoom March 5, 2012 at 9:02 pm

"Sitting on a panel" is not something that Good Americans do, particularly in relation to the "arts." It reeks of elitism and arrogance. It reeks of conspiracy.

Good Americans sit at home and watch TV. They do not "sit on panels."

Speaking of the North Shore, one of Mrs. Kincaid and I's favorite passtimes is gawking at rich people's houses on Sheridan Road while driving to Ravinia, when there is somebody not-dead-boring playing there. We even took a European friend of ours on the tour, and got out of our car and walked up the driveway of some wealthy family and took pictures. Their security was probably too bemused to release the dobermans or whatever.

"panels of 'people with thoughts' and 'the exchange of ideas' and cross arts pollination are what civilizations do."

Folks in Candyland like their morals simple. When you live in constant fear of being struck by a stray thought, because 80% of thoughts in this century might contradict your childish belief system, your worldview gets very small, very quickly.

Biel_ze_Bubba March 6, 2012 at 5:30 am

"cross arts pollination" sounds like an abomination — something that Santorum would really hate. If you force taxpayers to subsidize cross arts pollination, the next thing you know, you'll have legalized art-dog cross-pollination.

The America-hater was also in "Eight Men Out" directed by John Sayles, who also directed "Matewan", which was about a union, and it suggested that a West Virginia coal mining company job creator would treat its workers badly.

If I learned that Saul Alinsky had a bit part in "Matewan" like Terkel did in "Eight Men Out", I would not bat an eye. And let us not forget how badly Sayles treated job-creator Chas Comisky (ironically referred to as "Commie" from time to time in the dialogue) in that baseball flick. Flat champagne, niggling Cicotte out of his bonus, etc. Does Sayles hang out with Obama?

I imagine it went down like this: Obama shows up at Breitbart's trashed and stained apartment with an eightball of "primo" to "make amends". Breitbart's not about to turn down a party, even if it is with Obummer. He's partied with worse, like the lady who pushes a grocery cart around his neighborhood with no pants on, an hour ago.

Then Obama cuts out a Belushi across the giant mirror-on-egg-crates that is Breitbart's coffee table and only unbroken glass. Turns out? Rat poison, mostly. Breitbart gets so addled from the rodenticide that he stands up and shouts "Smell ya later!" and stumbles out into the street to do his favorite: Scream at people. He actually does pretty well, managing to travel several blocks on foot before collapsing. Thanks, Barry. You pick way worthier targets than the Clintons.

The reason that Obama’s Alinskyite past, and his many appearances in political photography and video from the 1990s, are conspicuously missing from the national dialogue is that State Senator Barack Obama’s reinvention as a reasonable and moderate Democratic politician could not withstand scrutiny of his political life.

The writer of this stupidity is clearly a "RINO" since they went off script and used "Democratic politician".

Doktor Zoom March 5, 2012 at 9:22 pm

One of Studs Terkel's greatest achievements was his interview of CP Ellis, a former Klansman who renounced racism to work for racial justice. Of this story, Terkel said, "Anybody can be redeemed. I've seen it."

One of Andrew Breitbart's greatest achievements was his smear of Shirley Sherrod, whose tale of overcoming her own biases Breitbart framed as an act of racism. Even after the truth came out, there are still plenty of Breitbart admirers who remain convinced that Sherrod is a racist.

Doktor Zoom March 5, 2012 at 9:39 pm

Agreed. It's a potent mix of signifiers–one of the sleaziest liars on the right attacking the reputation of one of the most humane, thoughtful, big-hearted figures of the left. (And yes, there's a degree of nostalgia for the days when America really had a left.)

Can anyone imagine some future book review praising some promising new writer for having the "decency and intellect of an Andrew Breitbart"?

I am very nearly as pissed off by this as I was when I saw the infamous Fox News obituary of Kurt Vonnegut.

DoktorThompson March 5, 2012 at 9:51 pm

I don't care much (or know much) about Terkel's politics. All I know is that he did a hell of a job portraying individual humans as individual humans, and doing it, as you mentioned, thoughtfully. That's really hard to do. I can't do it. Mass media can't do it. We all get ground up and averaged in the mass culture grinder, but Terkel seemed to treat his subjects with dignity and individual care. I really admire that.

Doktor Zoom March 5, 2012 at 9:57 pm

Absolutely right–and a good excuse to cut and paste another Terkel quotation:

“What I bring to the interview is respect. The person recognizes that you respect them because you're listening. Because you're listening, they feel good about talking to you. When someone tells me a thing that happened, what do I feel inside? I want to get the story out. It's for the person who reads it to have the feeling . . . In most cases the person I encounter is not a celebrity; rather the ordinary person. "Ordinary" is a word I loathe. It has a patronizing air. I have come across ordinary people who have done extraordinary things."

― Touch and Go: A Memoir

user-of-owls March 5, 2012 at 10:20 pm

There would be more than a little poetic justice if one the steelworkers or stevedores Studs interviewed took a long piece of metal pipe to one of this festering, bloated fucking corpse's acolytes.

They are desperately searching for something to work. And they got such good traction with commie for a wonderfully long time. Such a nice, simple, word that got the hate juices going lickety-splitch.

Negropolis March 6, 2012 at 7:34 am

Yeah a word that gets their hates juices going. Truth is, my generation (20-somethings) doesn't even know what communism really is. We haven't seen it work on the same scale as it did during the Cold War. It was never an existential threat to us or anyone else; hell, beyond some blah, blah, blah shit about the Berlin Wall, we didn't even really learn about communism in high school. I know that we're a small part of the electorate, but they have to realize this is having diminishing returns.

Doktor Zoom March 6, 2012 at 9:15 am

It's not necessary to have any direct knowledge of a group to fear them. In fact, sometimes a near-total lack of knowledge can be whipped up into a good 3-minutes' Hate. A while back, for instance, there was a wave of antisemitism in Japan.

Negropolis March 7, 2012 at 12:44 am

I'm not saying that you have to know something to hate it, but I'm telling you that unless you know it, it simply doesn't have the same sting. The few kids still throwing around "commie" as a slur use it as a lesser, secondary slur. You know it's an insult, but you really don't know why.

It's one of the saddest, craziest, most irrelevant things I've seen in print in a very long time. It's abundantly clear to me that the modern Conservative movement, after 30-odd years is well on it's way to tearing itself to pieces in a paroxysm of fear, incompetence, ideological purity and rage.
Oddly, this is all I could think of after seeing that:

Partly because of the fact that Breitbart and I share a name (I'm more commonly referred to as "stupid Bart", alas), I am also quite saddened/disappointed by this anemic exposee.

There are a bunch of angry maggots in a California cemetery right now saying, "What the hell? Even WE can't eat this despicable piece of shit."

KenLayIsAlive March 6, 2012 at 10:09 am

They're probably drunk just by being in the coffin with him. His body probably ferments.

tessiee March 6, 2012 at 2:39 am

Has anyone to date come up with the theory that this Breitbart guy was actually Bob Boudelang?

Sorry ass motherfucker. Even his legacy was all hype and no substance. And nobody's fuckin' surprised and nobody fucking cares. Bye again, you angry little pustule.

Gainsbourg69 March 6, 2012 at 10:20 am

According to Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, Breitbart fought the good fight and was a patriot who served his country. Except he didn't fight in any wars or held elected office.

DrunkIrishman March 6, 2012 at 5:56 am

Breitbart stole the Blogspot logo.

C_R_Eature March 6, 2012 at 7:00 am

When approached for comment on his grave insult to the beloved memory of Pulitzer Prize winning Author and Historian Studs Terkel, he said:
" *Gurgle* pppppppppttthhhh! *Gurgle*,*Gurgle* Hisssssssssss. "

Barrelhse March 6, 2012 at 7:05 am

Happy Super Tuesday, everyone.

proudgrampa March 6, 2012 at 7:42 am

You too, Barrel. The liquor cabinet is opening early today! Woohoo!

Negropolis March 6, 2012 at 7:50 am

I'll be happy when it's over and the Romney-beast wins just enough primaries to be declared the "winner." You know, like how one of the surviving chicken in a cockfight is declared a "winner."

DahBoner March 6, 2012 at 7:40 am

I thought it was Clinton who had a Monica Alinskyite past???

SaintRond March 6, 2012 at 8:21 am

I've seen a lot of decent sorts exercise decorum in the wake of this degenerate, alcoholic narcissist's demise, but if you want to feel less guilt about taking a giant shit on his memory, which is no less than he deserves, just do a search on the "eulogy" he delivered in honor of Ted Kennedy's passing, made the very same day the Senator died.

Anyone know where that bloated cocksucker's been buried? If I happen to be passing through, maybe I'll pay a visit to his grave site and piss on it.

"Breitbart's Ghost: Obama Hung" — this is news?

SpiderCrab March 6, 2012 at 9:14 am

Andrew Breitbart is the dead gift that keeps on giving.

smitallica March 6, 2012 at 9:14 am

Studs Terkel? Your smoking gun is STUDS FUCKING TERKEL??

These assholes truly have nothing.

OneYieldRegular March 6, 2012 at 9:52 am

Even for Andrew Breitbart, that's pretty breathtaking.

I can wait to read what he might have written about Will Rogers.

DocChaos March 6, 2012 at 9:54 am

What I love about this shit, is that the wingnut axis of paranoia ( AM Radio, Fox News and the rightwing blogosphere) actually think the term "Alinskyite" resonates beyond the walls of their padded room. It would be like the left affixing "Randian" to every conservative politician and movement and expecting it to unnerve the average American.

prommie March 6, 2012 at 10:06 am

I think Movement Conservatives woul consider every American alive in the 1930s and before to be a commie red pinko socialist. Only our forebears who live in their imagined history, as opposed to our actual history, are free from the taint.

KenLayIsAlive March 6, 2012 at 1:19 pm

the taint of history. Is that the spot between the two world wars or something?

KenLayIsAlive March 6, 2012 at 10:11 am

Did I mention I'm glad he's dead? I was so happy when I saw that headline. Seriously.

I CAN HAZ TOXICOLOGY REPORT NAO?!!

James Michael Curley March 6, 2012 at 10:13 am

I'll lay 5 to 1 that the Ghost of Tom Joad can kick ass on the Ghost of Andrew Brietbart.

KenLayIsAlive March 6, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Who do I have to fellate around here to poop on the corpse?

Nostrildamus March 6, 2012 at 2:01 pm

What a great week! First, Breitbart. And now (I say this as a former Disney employee) Robert Sherman.

DahBoner March 6, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Well, like they always say, Kumquats are just oranges for midgets…

ttommyunger March 7, 2012 at 7:16 am

"Breitbart is dead" Sorry, I just like that phrase, soooo much.

fuflans March 5, 2012 at 10:59 pm

you're quoting all my favorites.

horsedreamer_1 March 5, 2012 at 11:19 pm

They were… Scared of Barack-a. & all his Sharia.

CessnaDriver March 5, 2012 at 11:29 pm

They took in the students to make money.

horsedreamer_1 March 5, 2012 at 11:20 pm

Musta been a drive by. Rat a tat tat. Tat. Tat.

RavenRant March 6, 2012 at 3:16 am

Yes. Our opponents' racial terminology is state of the art. 1865 style.

redarmyzombie March 6, 2012 at 3:36 am

Once again, I repeat:
D'AAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!

BaldarTFlagass March 6, 2012 at 9:16 am

I know I've seen that picture before, but did someone photoshop Jay Leno's jaw on Barry's mom? Dang.

poncho_pilot March 6, 2012 at 3:59 am

all expense paid trip to Siberia.

Negropolis March 6, 2012 at 7:42 am

The fucker's a veritable shape-shifter, he is. Islamic Indonesian one day, practicing Kenyan Muslim the next, godless atheist the next, cut-throat black Chicagoan the next, Communist the next, and the list goes on.

RavenRant March 6, 2012 at 8:55 am

And manages to be a wimp and a thug at the same time.

not that Dewey March 6, 2012 at 9:58 am

"distraction" = "our plan backfired. now what do we do?"

KenLayIsAlive March 6, 2012 at 10:02 am

Can it be James O'Keefe please? I imagine his skull flies off that flimsy neck looks like a Barry Bonds playing tee-ball.
