Andrew Breitbart Strikes Again in Redlands

A silent auction for Andrew Breitbart's autographed poster is part of Thursday's general meeting of the Redlands Tea Party Patriots.

The March 7 general meeting of the Redlands Tea Party Patriots now includes a silent auction for an autographed poster of Andrew Breitbart, conservative provocateur extraordinaire.

The much-beloved Breitbart spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at the University of Redlands in 2011, about six months before his unexpected passing. Breitbart was a tremendous supporter of the tea party movement.

(I know, I spoke with him for about 10 minutes in early 2011, when I met him at the CPAC convention  in Washington, D.C., the weekend before I flew to Iraq for the US Army Reserve.)

The Redlands Tea Party Patriots will have a silent auction for his autographed poster as part of Thursday's meeting at the Mill Creek Cattle Co., 1874 Mentone Blvd., in Mentone. As always, the two-hour meeting is free and open to the public. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. A no-host dinner precedes the meeting, which will begin promptly at 7 p.m.

The silent auction is just one highlight of a meeting featuring Bill Norton, a constitutional expert who travels the country to speak about the tea party movement. Norton, the featured speaker, will talk about what's up and what's next with the tea party.

Norton, a national coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots, is one of the most prominent speakers to address a general meeting of the Redlands Tea Party Patriots since it formed in 2009.

The silent auction for the Andrew Breitbart poster starts Thursday and concludes during next month's general meeting on April 4.

Our last bid for the Andrew Breitbart autographed poster was $650! WOW! And what would liberals give for an autograph of Nancy Pelosi? $1.37?

As Bill Norton said, for a movement that is supposedly "dead," the Tea Party is blamed by the Dems and MSM for a lot things.

The tea baggers will be the death of the GOP. More power to them!
