Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow: 'What We've Started Is a Revolution'

by Matthew Boyle 19 Jan 2014, 2:05 PM PDT

MYRTLE BEACH, South Carolina—Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow said during his speech at the South Carolina Tea Party Convention that Andrew Breitbart and the team at Breitbart News have started a “revolution.”

“What we’ve started, and what Andrew wanted to start, was a revolution,” Marlow said during his remarks. “The revolution is fighting against corruption and fighting for truth.”

Marlow walked through how he, Andrew, and Breitbart News CEO Larry Solov started Breitbart News in Andrew’s basement and why the fledgling operation gained national prominence. “The keys to success were, first of all, [Andrew] would go out and admit his biases, whereas we admit we’re a right-of-center website... you know that we have a perspective and you judge us accordingly unlike those punks at the LA Times and the New York Times and ABC, NBC, and CBS, who keep telling us they’re unbiased when they’re cooking the books all day long."

That remark earned Marlow a standing ovation from the hundreds of Tea Party activists in attendance.

“So what was Andrew’s mission?” Marlow asked. “Was his mission, from the start, just to rabble-rouse? Yeah, but it was bigger than that."

Marlow continued:

What he wanted to do is he wanted to give a voice to people who had no voice. He wanted to give a voice to people in Hollywood who feared backlash for having conservative values. He wanted to give a voice to people who were called bigots because they wanted to uphold the value of personal responsibility. He wanted to give a voice to people who fought for freedom that was only one generation away from being lost. He wanted to give a voice to those skeptical of both political parties. And he wanted to give a voice to those who thought that big government isn’t a matter of wonks crunching numbers to come up with the best way to extract the most revenue. Government is a moral issue. It is a moral issue where he wanted to make the case to the American people why every single penny is being taken from their pocket and put into government coffers. He wanted to give those people a voice.


Marlow said that the steps that need to be taken to give a voice to the millions of voiceless around the country who believe in freedom and conservative values start with “level[ing] the playing field.”

Marlow cited polling data from Breitbart News right after President Obama's re-election. That polling data showed that most Americans—an overwhelming majority—support values shared by the Tea Party movement. “People don’t realize that their values don’t align with the Democrat Party because all the cool kids are Democrats. Everyone in Hollywood, everyone on your campuses, and everyone in the media forces you into that direction."

Marlow continued with an explanation of "why I’ve said lately that the Tea Party is the most important constituency in America." He stated that Obama “proved in 2012 that the key to winning elections is motivating the grassroots.”

“It’s motivating your base,” he said. “And getting them enthusiastic and out to vote. So, if you believe in upholding traditional American values and if you believe in upholding conservative values then who is the grassroots movement who is fighting for those on a day-to-day basis? It’s the Tea Party.”

Marlow then shifted gears to argue that is the institutional left that produces people like President Obama.

“Barack Obama is not the problem,” Marlow said. “He is a symptom of the problem. How was he elected? He was nurtured and raised in academia. Then he went to the South Side of Chicago and embedded himself in the institutional left and got radical values from people like Saul Alinsky. And then he was bought and sold to us by Hollywood with Will.I.Am and Scarlett Johansson making rap videos viewed by tens of millions of people that are very creative and artistic.”

Marlow said that the institutional left is eons ahead of the conservative movement’s ability to affect public opinion through culture. “We’re working far behind those institutions,” Marlow said. “So it’s a multi-generational process to take it back.”

Breitbart has already been forgotten.

Andrew Breitbart's Unity Speech at CPAC 2012: You want a unity speech? I'll give you a unity speech. I don't care who our candidate is. I haven't since the beginning of this... ask not what the candidate can do for you, ask what you can do for the candidate! And that's what the Tea Party is. We are there to confront [the radical left] on behalf of our candidate! I will march behind who ever our candidate is. Because if we don't, we lose.

There are two paths! There are two paths! One is America, the other is Occupy! One is America, the other is Occupy! And I don't care, and along the way... I've realized over the last three years that the Republican Party and the conservative movement is not what ABC, CBS and NBC put on the screen. They try to portray you in the worst possible light... and when I travel around the United States meeting people in the Tea Party who care — black, white, gay, straight — anyone that's willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker, and if you're not in that bunker 'cause you're not satisfied with this candidate, more than shame on you — you're on the other side!

The Tea Party has nothing to do with unity now.  They are there to confront the GOPe on behalf of [the radical left]!It is an exclusive club and getting more exclusive everyday.  Some day it will include 0 representatives.

I believe Breitbart would be ashamed at what his website has become.  I miss his leadership.  He knew who the enemy was.
