Over two years ago I was inspired to start this column after talking with Andrew Breitbart about the importance of conservatives engaging in the pop culture discussion. However, the most important lesson I learned from Breitbart was that conservatives should not be afraid to confront the Left. Breitbart’s commitment to expose the Left is on display in the new documentary Hating Breitbart. The movie opens this Friday, October 19. (To demand it in your local theater, go here.)
Andrew Marcus, director of Hating Breitbart, spent 30 months traveling with Breitbart to collect footage for the documentary. After graduating from the film school of the Art Institute of Chicago, Marcus documented protests. “Anytime you get more than a handful of people together in a space, you get human drama,” he said. “I find the human behavior that occurs at protests to be fascinating.”
Prior to Hating Breitbart, Marcus worked with Juan Williams on Tale of Two Missions, a documentary about school choice in Chicago.
In a speech featured in Hating Breitbart Briebart said, “We have an obligation to fight back.” Like many, I miss having Breitbart with us during such a pivotal time for the future of the country. Thanks to Hating Breitbart we are reminded of who he was, who our political enemies are and why we need to continue to expose them. As long as we follow his lead, Breitbart is here.

Each week the De Pasquale's Dozen asks political figures and free market-minded writers and entertainers to take a break from politics and talk about their pop culture obsessions.
1. If there were a television channel that showed only one movie over and over, what movie should it be?
If I have to pick just one it would be The Big Lebowski. If I can have two I'd add Shawshank Redemption. If I can add one more it would be Secrets and Lies. If I can pick four it would be Dadetown. Take me to five/six and you get Godfather parts 1&2. I can keep going so I'll stop.
2. What’s one of your favorite movie quotes?
“This aggression will not stand,man.” - The Big Lebowski
3. In A Clockwork Orange, Malcolm McDowell is strapped in with his eyes propped open and forced to watch images until he was "cured." If you could give President Obama, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Leader Harry Reid the "Clockwork Orange treatment," what movie would you make them watch?
