Glenn Beck And Sarah Palin Hold 9/11 Event In Alaska

Fresh off their tag team rally in DC a couple of weeks ago, Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin reunited in Anchorage on the ninth aniversary of 9/11. Thousands of people (over) paid somewhere between $73.75 and $225 to hear the two talk for about 2 hours.

The New York Times reports on the details of the event:

They shared somber remembrances of the terrorist attacks nine years ago, reiterated the “Faith, Hope and Charity” message from the last time they appeared together (at Mr. Beck’s massive “Restoring Honor” gathering in Washington on Aug. 28). They bashed the media.

“Let me tell you, folks, it’s a brutal, leftist-dominated lamestream media world out there,” Mrs. Palin screamed to a cheering crowd of about 4,000 at a sprawling downtown convention center here.

Beck claimed that the country has become complacent in its safety since the attacks (“I fear that we are forgetting what it takes," he said) while Palin pointed the finger at President Obama:

“It starts from the top,” she said. “Those who kind of set the tone in our country that would lead us towards a complacency that is very, very, very dangerous. I fear that is why we are seeing the patterns we’re seeing right now, especially over the last 20 months.”

As for if either will run for president, Beck: "They joked about a potential partnership in 2012. 'We would like to announce that in 2012…' Mr. Beck said, pausing, pausing, '…that we will both be voting.'”

Earlier in the day, Palin spoke at a 9/11 event organized by the Conservative Patriots Group in Wasilla in which she asked the crowd "What would we do without Fox News? I don't know."

I think I may have a pretty good idea.

Watch a clip of her Wasilla speech AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. I just can't deal with their stupidity anymore.

    Well, gee Sarah - you'd probably still be governor of Alaska, because without Fox's pimp hand making you rich with the Teatards you'd have no reason to quit midway through your only term to milk that cash cow.

  3. Alaska. Hey, maybe that airline Ted Stevens liked so much is still flying. We can only hope. Crop duster, puddle jumper, something extremely poorly maintained, perhaps?

  4. The most repulsive part of this is that they used the occasion of 9/11 to hold their event. It's hard to think of an American politician who has less of an understanding of what it means to be a New Yorker than Sarah Palin.

  5. She looks like she cringing in that picture. Well, they're stuck with each other.

  6. From the AP:

    "The number of people in the U.S. who are in poverty is on track for a record increase on President Barack Obama's watch, with the ranks of working-age poor approaching 1960s levels that led to the national war on poverty."


    What is Obama doing about it?

    According to the Hill:

    "President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama have a packed social schedule this week, with two major galas and a reception for college athletes."


    Y'all can have President Epic Fail. Since Clinton is no longer an option, I'll take my chances with Palin and Beck.

  7. Terry if you see Palin cringing in that photo it is time for you to get your eyes tested. Also see a shrink about Palin Derangement Syndrome which makes you see things which are not there (tin foil hat is a good thing to ward off emanations)

  8. Max you are an IDIOT if you think that the increasing recession/depression in this country lies at the feet of anyone besides Bush Jr. We've spent trillions on a war against NOTHING and lost lives, credibility and MONEY. Now you want to vote for two of the most ignorant fucks on the planet? Go ahead. All you do is show just how stupid you truly are. Good luck with that.

  9. they're totally fucking

  10. Oh WTF, you are so smart. Obama had nothing to do with the $787 billion "stimulus" that he signed into law, and all the jobs that it didn't actually create during the "Summer of Recovery." I must have imagined that.

    I didn't vote for Bush, so don't argue with me about what a disaster he was. Obama's just as clueless.

  11. 9/11 had nothing to do with alaska. Or 90% of america for that matter. Why all these hillbillies get upset about it is beyond me.

  12. @Max you do realize that we are in this economic crisis because of idiots like Bush running this country? I am sure Palin will drive us deeper into a greater depression, but would probably quit because we all know she can't handle criticism. I study Economics (graduate degree) at NYU - it's going to take time. Patience people - there is no magic wand

    Posted by: AlexM | Sep 12, 2010 9:59:13 PM

  13. "I am sure Palin will drive us deeper into a greater depression,"

    Kinda like Obama just did?

    Again, I didn't vote for Bush. And you're not the only one with an Economics background. You can't expect poor people to go hungry while President Clueless parties all week.

  14. @ Max: your hostility is bizarre and makes it difficult to take your postings seriously. As much as you are intent to claim otherwise, Obama and his team have actually pulled the economy from the brink of a depression that would have made the 1930s seem like a summer picnic.
    CBO, Aug. 24: CBO estimates that ARRA’s policies had the following effects in the second quarter of calendar year 2010:
    • They raised real (inflation-adjusted) gross domestic product (GDP) by between 1.7 percent and 4.5 percent,
    • Lowered the unemployment rate by between 0.7 percentage points and 1.8 percentage points, (and)
    • Increased the number of people employed by between 1.4 million and 3.3 million.

  15. Boys don't waste your time talking sense to Max, he is clearly a moron.

  16. I'll bet if you asked that Alaskan snowball to define exactly what the "lamestream media" is, she wouldn't be able to. She is a joke and regardless of what side of the political divide you reside on, if you can look at that woman and not see a completely ridiculous figure, you are not paying attention.

  18. I don't think Max is a moron, but he obviously has a lot of anger about this issue. He's smart enough to read this blog, and to work a computer; he should be able to discern the facts of the situation without rancor.

    Posted by: Jeff Kurtti | Sep 12, 2010 10:51:43 PM

  19. TPL I read your post and discern that you are a complete moron.Easy to throw insults around eh-how do you like getting them back?
    As for "Van" what a childish post-grow up you jerk.

    Posted by: farrell | Sep 12, 2010 10:58:55 PM

  20. Max, without the stimulus the economy would truly have been in the Second Great Depression. You seem to forget the absolute financial panic that was gripping the world back at the beginning of 2009. And as far as income disparity, that has been growing since Reagan enacted his "trickle-down" policies in the 80s.

  21. A gay man voting for Republicans is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.

  22. Miss Max you can also take your chances drinking a glass a cyanide!

    It might just help your ignorant nutjob!

  23. The Beck/Palin/Gingrich idea of restoring America is a holy war with Islam (read Iran). So line up for that if you follow them.

  24. "The kids come first" Palin has the nerve to say. Is that why she threw her underage, pregnant and unmarried daughter on the world stage at the most embarrassing time of the poor kids life?

  25. These 2 are as much of a disaster as Obama and Bush and Bill Clinton.
