DENVER -- A Centennial-based organization has canceled an up coming 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 Left is trying to force Palin to attend the NBC/Politico debate at the Reagan Library now that she doesn’t have an excuse any longer.

Sarah's popularity is waning. Nobody really cares anything about her. They just can't stop thinking or talking about her is all.

Sarah Palin putting out yesterday that she was attending forced their hand, apparently. I suspect there’s a lot more to this than we know.

There are way too many insane and loony commie’RATS in Colorado. Many are suffering from high altitude lack of oxygen. I hate to see this canceled but it isn’t safe for Americans anymore in this country.

If this came from the tea party, we’d never hear the end of it, but because these are progressives, and please, enough of that word “Progressives” they don’t want to PROGRESS anything, they want to destroy, destroy anything that gets in their way, and because they have the media in their back pocket they know they can get away with it

This is PROFOUND! Denver cannot keep Sarah Palin safe (or will not keep her safe). Obama was in Denver in February of 2010 and they managed to keep HIM safe...... Cancel my plans to vacation in Colorado.

No direct threats have been made against anyone, but 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.

The organization plans to host the event at some point in the future, featuring another speaker.

No information on ticket refunds was immediately available.

If you ask me, I squarely place blame on the Democrat/Liberal Hate Machine that consists of sickos like Sheriff Dupnik (Dipstick) and others who ginned up hatred against Palin right after the Giffords shooting. Palin has gone on the record as saying that she’s getting more threats now than ever!

Nope, sorry. This one stinks.

This explains the timing of Palin announcing this yesterday. She was clearly signalling she wasn’t backing down.

The White Flag Warriors, as another poster put it, has this one on THEM.

Whoever sets up these appearances had better grow a pair of brass or the right, conservatives in this country will lose to the communists who keep threatening. So why doesn’t this “conservative group of weanies” hire protection against those who are threatening “their” safety???? Sounds like of Europeans prior to WWII caving into hitler/Mousellini and Togo. Are we Americans who have stood against threats or a bunch of weak kneeded “yes mamms” with not courage, no guts and NO Backbone?

Simple solution here. Just have Sarah wait until AFTER May 2nd to declare her candidacy for President of the United States.

Let’s see which one of the MEN are going to declare first.

It ain’t going to be Sarah; at least not until after May 2nd.

Your move.

This is a grievous error.

You never, NEVER give in to intimidation. NEVER.

How ironic and tragic that a group that purports to support the military… a group tasked with standing firm and looking danger in the eye… has in fact blinked when faced by just a fraction of what our troops stare down on a daily basis.

Patriots & Warriors Gala Canceled

Denver, CO - The Sharon K Pacheco Foundation (SKP Foundation) announced today the cancellation of the 2011 Patriots & Warriors Charity Gala, featuring former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, citing safety concerns resulting from an onslaught of negative feedback received by the organization after yesterdays announcement.

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, says the Foundations Director.

He points out that no direct threats have been made against anyone, but 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.

Additionally, we must protect the emotional safety of military families. “Military members and their families have been through a lot due to the wars. We have a responsibility to protect their emotional safety just as well,” says Founder Leo Pacheco. “And unfortunately, some have overshadowed the purpose of this event by concentrating on their personal hatred of Sarah Palin, which is truly sad.”

The organization deeply respects Sarah Palin, and appreciates her willingness to come and honor our military.

The organization plans to host the event at some point in the future, featuring another speaker.

Waning with you, perhaps. But the left appears to be more afraid of her than ever.

Why do you suppose that would be...???
