“New civility” update:

DENVER — A Centennial-based organization has canceled an upcoming charity event featuring Sarah Palin, citing safety concerns.

The Sharon K Pacheco Foundation announced Saturday that the 2011 Patriots & Warriors Charity Gala scheduled for May 2 would not be held.

“Due to an onslaught of personal attacks against Governor Palin and others associated with her appearance, it is with deep sadness and disappointment that, in the best interest of all, we cancel the event for safety concerns,” said the Foundation’s Director.

The foundation says the recent increase in negative rhetoric against the former Alaska governor “raises concern for her safety and the safety of others despite the call for civility in America,” following the tragic Tucson shooting.

Reportedly, the organization canceled the event, not Palin — it’s not like Sarah’s not used to peace-lovers threatening her and her family. If this is everything it appears to be on the surface, the organization has done nothing but embolden the “altering behavior by intimidation” new-tone hypocrites. However, things aren’t always what they appear to be. It’s hard to imagine anything worthy of being called “Patriots & Warriors” caving into anonymous threats that are merely par for the course when it comes to Palin, but there could be more to the story.

Perhaps coincidentally, May 2nd is also the date of the first Republican presidential debate that will take place at the Reagan Library.

    It is what it is, But my contention is that the current administration has appealed and does appeal to the basest of human nature: anger, hatred, and all around troublemaking.

    When things like the riots in Tunisia and Egypt erupt around the world, this administration always seems to want to get right in the middle of it.

    In the last two years the behavior of the even the left has been embolden by the silence of Mao and the voice of Mao at the strategically planed wrong times, thus showing approval then standing back with shrugged shoulders and attempting a hypocritical look of innocence.

    Nothing suites this administration better than polarization.

    Where I come from, words have meaning ! And here`s 3 with powerful meanings ! All strung together !

    Patriots – love of country and its laws and traditions and its people….
    Warriors – people who display an extra sense of bravery in the face of fear and danger….
    Charity – recognizing that a group is in need, and rising to fill that need with time, energy and money and products and services….

    There MUST be more to the story ! Are there some "closet libs" involved here ?

    I agree Zilla! Don't let them FORCE us to back down. By giving in – we might as well give up. We CANNOT allow them to define us by shutting us up!!!

    Palin and Beck are buddies, and were also asked to circumvent the Tea-Party…as basically the "mainstreamers" who would be trying to take over the Tea Party Fox News style with well publicized speaking engagements where they would both speak, inviting everyone to their big "Tea Party" events…classic elite take-over tactics…acting like they are all for the new, Ron Paul invented Tea Party…at generally the same time Beck was calling Ron Paul supporters extremists and nut jobs on his radio and TV disinformation outlets…demonizing vital American activists in the ongoing government dissident demonization campaign to quell public outcry for the last 100 years of government corruption.

    WRONG !!

    Glenn Beck avoided the Tea Party ONLY and EXPRESSLY because he understood the importance of having NO centralized leadership and control ! He firmly supports, believes in and touts the successes of the Tea Party ! He simply stays out of their way ! The SAME for Sarah Palin !

    Sorry, it's not "WRONG" …I watched it take place…I've been watching this take place for many years now. Glenn Beck is a disinformation artist! FOX News and Rupert Murdoch are establishment cronies, bar none! I'm actually shocked the Judge and Geraldo Rivera have been able to keep their jobs there after coming forward with 9/11 truth as of late! The Tea Party was launched from the Ron Paul campaign via the Alex Jones Show in 2007, the only reason the Tea Party was ever able to get off the ground and start to have real influence in today's political landscape! That's exactly why FAUX News decided to put their disinfo artist in chief on the case, and tried to get Sarah Palin to be it's leader… but it didn't work! Glenn Beck lost more than half his viewership because people started to realize that he really didn't hold the actual values that the real foundational tea-partiers hold…the real Truth Movement…. The real Alex Jones/Ron Paul Tea Party Movement… NOT the fake Glenn Beck/Sarah Palin movement. I'd be really shocked if Glenn Beck or Sarah Palin ever actually stood up in front of God and everybody and truly spit real Tea Party fundamentals into the mic? …not going to happen! You're being fooled!

    As I said, you are WRONG !! On every count !

    Glenn backs his claims up w/ audio/vid in "their own words and the WH has refused to call "the red phone" if he`s so wrong. The tea party started with 2 women, not Ron Paul ! Glenn and Sarah were never asked and wouldn`t head the Tea Party as its success has been their avoidance of centralized leadership and control !

    Glenn and Sarah are accurate and successful on their own, as is the Tea Party !

    Again, you are WRONG !! Go back to Soros and Hollywood where you are appreciated and in the company of fools !

    Oh, we often wonder how Hernando Revolver still has his job too ! His liberal nonsense is boring ! And the only thing false on FOX News is the liberal tripe they throw in to achieve balance ! What, you don`t recognize you own crap when you see and smell it ?
