The Louisiana Putz and Breitbart, The Last Tweets
Written by 

breibert

Sometimes there is civility and decency in this current acrimonious political environment—even on blogs and twitter and even between activists who happen to see the world from different ends of the poles. 

One of those rare moments just happens to have occurred arising out of a communication between a local Louisiana blogger and a “putz”  and with a nationally recognized public figure  who sadly  wrote his last tweet to our putz only an hour or so before he collapsed —Andrew Breitbart.

Last week, when I discovered that Breitbart had died, I thought to myself, this does not surprise me.  Although I did not know he was as young as he was (43) when he passed, I recall seeing him in the middle of a heated discussion at a Republican convention in New Orleans two years ago.

 At that time, his face had fastened to red, his hair seemed to turn gray during the course of that spark-flying conversation.  I thought to myself, this guy is heading for a coronary any moment.  He certainly wears his passion from his heart onto his sleeves.

After Breitbart’s death I started to read what I consider to be insane discussion about President Obama killing Breitbart and about the last public political communique between a person he had called a putz and him.

Little did I realize until today when I read the putz’s blog, that the person Breitbart tagged by the  Jewish slang that literally means male genital,  the blogger on the other side of Breitbart’s twitter was a man of seemingly liberal stripes from central Louisiana, a person named Lamar White of cenlamar.com.

What was and is of interest to me was the respect that both Breitbart and White seem to have between one another—Breitbart, at the last moments of his life and White as he looks back at the “chance meeting” over the Internet with a once-strident voice of the American conservative movement and a person he probably had little in political common.

Breitbart might have had encounters like that one, whether over the web or during private moments.

This one, however showed that despite his political differences he could be most respectful with someone with whom he did not really know nor run around in the same circles, at all.  

And the “putz” having had one of the last words with an American conservative icon seems to recognize on his recent post-mortem blog, that sometimes the fifteen minutes of fame can last a lifetime when acknowledging that political differences aside, there is a heart on the other side of advocacy.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
