Colorado Christian University prepared for Sarah Palin visit

Unlike the Pacheco Foundation, which allowed leftist cranks to bully it into cancelling a charity fundraising event with Sarah Palin as keynote speaker, Colorado Christian University is ready and able to deal with deranged, Palin-hating liberals, according to a report in The Denver Post:

John Andrews, who leads the Centennial Institute think tank at the Lakewood college, said the school has a signed contract for the event and is prepared to deal with any publicity — positive or negative — that the conservative star might bring with her.

“Her staff has told us to expect an interesting ride, in terms of static,” Andrews said. “We know what’s down that road, and we are eager to go there.”

On Feb. 4, the Sharon K. Pacheco Foundation announced that Palin would be the featured speaker at a May 2 benefit in Glendale for military families but canceled the event less than 48 hours later, blaming threats and negative feedback.

[…]

Andrews said the Tea Party icon will not receive a speaking fee for her appearance at CCU. Palin’s fee sometimes exceeds $100,000, the Washington Speaker’s Bureau said last month.

Andrews said he doesn’t think security concerns derailed the Pacheco Foundation event and that Colorado came off “not looking great” because of a “perception that someone important could be chased away.

“Certainly, there is a warm welcome for her on our campus,” Andrews said.

[…]

All ticket proceeds from Palin’s Lakewood appearance will support the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, a national nonprofit group benefiting the families of fallen soldiers, Andrews said.

Andrews said the fact that Palin’s eldest son is a veteran made her a great choice for the event. Track Palin served in Iraq in 2008-2009.

Gov. Palin to Headline Military Appreciation Rally in Colorado May 2

You can’t keep a Mama Grizzly down. Nor can you intimidate all the good grizzlies who are determined to hold a benefit for the families of the fallen. After the Sharon K. Pacheco Foundation was forced to scuttle plans to have Sarah Palin speak at a similar fundraiser in Glendale, Colorado because of personal attacks and “an onslaught of negative rhetoric” against Gov. Palin, Colorado Christian University has announced Tribute to the Troops, featuring the 2008 vice presidential candidate as keynote speaker.

Scheduled for the CCU Event Center on the university’s Lakewood campus May 2, the same date that the Pacheco event was to have taken place, the rally will also feature retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin and members of all branches of the US Armed Forces.

Only 1,000 tickets will be sold at $25 each, and all proceeds will be donated to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), the front line charity benefiting the families and loved ones of our military men and women.

To purchase tickets, register here.
