Tea party favorite Andrew Breitbart and ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief are scheduled to speak at a breakfast hosted by Americans for Prosperity’s Florida chapter this Friday in Orlando. Breibart will also be taking part in a panel discussion with several Florida officials during Presidency 5, organized by the Republican Party of Florida.

“Andrew Breitbart has undeniably proven the importance online activism and investigative journalism plays in influencing narratives in the media,” said Americans for Prosperity’s Slade O’Brien in a press release. “Andrew’s exposé of Congressman Weiner’s shameful actions and the resulting special elections in New York’s 9th Congressional District demonstrates the power of new media and the momentum it continues to gain.”

Americans for Prosperity is a tea party-affiliated group that was founded by David Koch, one of two billionaire brothers who have given more than $100 million to “right-wing causes,” according to The New Yorker.

Breitbart recently made headlines with controversial comments made during a tea party meeting in Boston, in which he reflected on the possibility of a coming “civil war” between conservatives and liberals. “[Liberals] can only win a rhetorical and a propaganda war,” he said. “They cannot win. We outnumber them in this country, and we have the guns.” Breitbart said “a part of” him wants liberals to initiate an armed conflict.

Moncrief, a former ACORN employee, is well-known for testifying against the community organizer group in court.

The two will be joined by TV host and commentator Stephen Kruiser, Florida blogger Jordan Raynor, The Franklin Center’s Erik Telford and Kelly Carson,’s Guy Benson and Alice Linahan of Voices Empower.
