Andrew Breitbart’s unexpected death on Thursday has sparked a swift outpouring of grief and remembrances–but also the inevitable conspiracy theories about the timing of the outspoken conservative’s demise.
Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., last month, Breitbartclaimed he had damning videos of Barack Obama, and planned to release them before the general election.”[We] are going to vet [Obama] from his college days to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008,” Breitbart told the CPAC crowd.Steve Bannon, producer of “The Undefeated” and a friend of Breitbart’s, told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday that the tapes of Obama at Harvard do exist, and that they would be released “in a week or two.”The news quickly sent conservative bloggers–still shocked by Breitbart’s sudden death–into a frenzy.
ANd then there is this
Andrew Breitbart “Wait Til They See What Happens March 1st” | Sinclair News.Net about the March 1st comment. We don’t even know that it’s true.

Of course, people looking for a conspiracy can’t comprehend that hospital staff do not know things or are not allowed to say. [It’s a conspiracy] or that sometimes people just up and die [It’s a conspiracy] or that there may not be the secret files that someone says they have [It’s a conspiracy]. The thing about conspiracies are that they are non-falsifiable. You can make up any crap you want to make them work to your liking. Currently, there is NO good evidence to suggest more than Breitbart died of exactly what they said he died of, something that kills hundreds of thousand every year.
