Palin, Beck Charge ‘Patriots’ $225 for ‘Commemorate 9/11′ Event
September 10, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)–There’s nothing like the smell of cold hard cash on the anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, right? Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck think so. The Fox News colleagues are teaming up for an event in “Alaska this Saturday to commemorate 9/11.” But you will need to bring your credit card. VIP tickets, including a meet and greet with the “restoring honor” duo will set you back $225.
The 9/11 event will be held at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage, Alaska.
The former half-term governor advertises it on her Facebook:
“Glenn’s coming to the Last Frontier! I hope my fellow Alaskans (and anyone visiting from Outside) will join me this Saturday, September 11, 2010, at Anchorage’s Dena’ina Center at 8:00 p.m. Glenn Beck will be there – you won’t want to miss it. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com.”
“We can count on Glenn to make the night interesting and inspiring, and I can think of no better way to commemorate 9/11 than to gather with patriots who will “never forget.” Hope to see you there!”
A look at the Ticketmaster page reveals tickets for the 9/11 Beck-Palin shindig range from $73.75 per person, up to $225. And “patriots” spending their grocery money to hear these two opportunists spew their nonsense, also have a choice to stay sober in the “dry section,” or get loaded in the “wet section.” Maybe, Beck’s blackboard conspiracy theories start to make sense after a few shots of vodka.
The Hill newspaper reports, “there was no indication as to whom or what the proceeds will go.”
How does Beck square his Alaskan jaunt “to commemorate 9/11″ with his previous attacks on the families of 9/11 victims?
In 2005, Beck decided he was sick and tired of listening to the 9/11 families “complaining” about their losses:
“[Y]ou know it took me about a year to start hating the 9-11 victims’ families? Took me about a year. And I had such compassion for them, and I really wanted to help them, and I was behind, you know, “Let’s give them money, let’s get this started.” All of this stuff. And I really didn’t — of the 3,000 victims’ families, I don’t hate all of them. Probably about 10 of them. And when I see a 9-11 victim family on television, or whatever, I’m just like, “Oh shut up!” I’m so sick of them because they’re always complaining. And we did our best for them. And, again, it’s only about 10.”
Fast forward five-years, and Beck is selling tickets to an event commemorating the 9th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 9/11 that killed 3,000 people.
