The Sharon K Pacheco Foundation announced the cancellation of their 2011 Patriots & Warriors Charity Gala and included a statement on their Facebook page. It reads, "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."

The foundation went on to say no direct threats were made against Palin or anyone else involved with the event.

No threats made against palin or anyone else but they are canceling it due to safety concerns? One of two things....Sarah needs some publicity and to keep her name in the news so it's all a made up situation, OR, there was no interest in the event and they cancelled it...

It was SEIU thugs who beat the heck out of a Black conservative who attended a Tea Party meeting - why isn't that racist? It is the Liberal Left - Chris Matthews included - who have NOT toned down the rhetoric. Just look at some of the comments here. Are YOU a Hater? Or are you a Hypocrite. Look it up.

SOUNDS AS IF Sarah Palin is finally realizing what the word "reality" really means when it comes to public opinion of her and her family. What a mess she has made of herself and to all those around her. Pathetic!

This organization needed an excuse to cancel the event. Tickets started out at $185, then were cut, then cut to half price. They couldn't sell the tickets and needed an excuse to cancel, so they probably got one note saying Palin was an idiot and used it to cancel for "safety" reasons. They were too embarrassed to admit Palin wasn't a draw.

Why are so many of you on here so miserable and negative? The nastiness continues through every single article in this rag site. Yes, this site is for entertainment, AND you are not entertaining. I imagine if God himself came down you'd find a problem with that too. Sad.
