The real reason Hannity is in Atlanta today.

You wouldn’t know it from reading this article, but the real reason Sean Hannity is putting on the “Freedom Concert” tonight at the Gwinnett Arena is to raise money for the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund. According to it’s website:

The Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund honors the bravery and dedication exhibited by Americans in our Armed Forces who have sacrificed life or limb defending our country by providing educational scholarships to their children. In the last 20 years, over 15,000 service members have given their lives defending our country. More than 3,400 soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Guardsmen have been killed in the war in Iraq, leaving behind approximately 2,000 children.

Thousands more members of our Armed Forces have been permanently disabled, leaving their families in difficult financial situations. Their children

    That was in the article:

    “The event is intended to raise scholarship funds for children of slain soldiers.”

    I guess they based the article on what the county chairman stated….unless they selected a cut from an overall quote he gave.

    We don’t know what the chairman said, but we know what she printed. She sure tries to give the impression it’s just a GOP rally. However, fans of the entertainers attending might come and also folks who just want to support the children of the troops might also come.

    But isn’t it a GOP pep rally? Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I don’t really fancy going to watch Montgomery Gentry and then hearing political rah-rah stuff in between (I bristled when I took my wife to a Dixie Chicks concert and they did the same thing but on the other spectrum … and we’re both Democrats).

    Still, I may dislike Hannity’s views, but good for him for raising money for the scholarship. Is there a way to send money that doesn’t involve a couple of hours of GOP preaching?

    Hannity has raised over 10 million dollars in the last five years for this cause. That is an impressive number and it helps so many kids
