Andrew Breitbart’s untimely death has sparked wild conspiracy theories that the publisher was murdered on the President’s orders. The Conservative blogger, who published the infamous tweets that brought down former Representative Anthony Weiner, died on Thursday after he suddenly collapsed on a sidewalk near his Los Angeles home.
Within hours of his death, the internet was awash with methods and motives invented by conspiracy theorist explaining how and why Obama had the author killed. The theories are fueled by Breitbart’s announcement at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington last month that he had a college video of Obama that that would blow the lid off his presidency.
“The videos are going to come out, the narrative is going to come out, that Barack Obama met a bunch of silver ponytails in the 1980s, like Bill (Ayers) and Bernardine (Dohrn), who said one day we would have the presidency, and the rest of us slept as they plotted, and they plotted, and they plotted.
“Barack Obama is a radical, we should not be afraid to say that! Okay? And Barack Obama was launched from Bill and Bernadine’s salon. I’ve been there.”
In fact, Breitbart had been there as recently as December when he was a dinner guest of Ayers and Dohrn.
Ayers turned out to be “a fantastic host, a fantastic conversationalist and a great chef,” Breitbart admitted. Still, he said, Ayers “is a sociopath” even if he did serve apple pie for dessert.
Ayers and Dohrn were founders of the Weather Underground, a violent radical leftist group formed in 1969 who went on to become university professors in Chicago, where they met Obama.

A friend of Andrew Breitbart says he will make good on Breitbart’s promise to release tapes that he said reveal Barack Obama as a radical bent on “racial division and class warfare.”
