Our sister site, The Texas Independent, is reporting on Sarah Palin’s recent speaking engagement with Heroic Media in Dallas. Palin acted as keynote speaker of the event, which raised awareness for faith-based, pro-life issues.
No stranger to Heroic Media events, Palin visited Jacksonville in late August for the group’s “An Evening of Hope” and her message was much the same. Similar to the Dallas event, Palin riled the crowd up by asking, “Do you love your freedom?” before calling President Obama the most “pro-abortion president to ever occupy the White House.”
Though Palin acted as the Dallas event’s keynote speaker, she was joined by Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who criticized the federal government for undermining abortion-funding laws: “We’ve got to keep protesting louder and let them know that we are fed up.”
Attorney General Greg Abbott and Pastor Stephen Broden also spoke at the event, which was attended by around 800 people. The Jacksonville event made national news for its dismal turnout, and had to be moved to a smaller theater due to poor ticket sales.
