Sheldon Adelson’s casino hosts RWNJ blogfest in Vegas
LAS VEGAS – Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin pelted the ‘permanent political class’ and the ‘lamestream media’ on Friday while applauding conservative bloggers at the RightOnline conference for doing ‘what too many people in the old media won’t do, can’t do, and that’s tell the truth.’
‘The role of new media is more fundamental than just a force for organizing,’ Palin told hundreds of bloggers in a conference room at conservative donor Sheldon Adelson’s Venetian hotel. ‘New media has become a force for activism and information. You do what too many people in the old media won’t do, can’t do, and that’s tell the truth.’
Look at the list of speakers at the RightOnline show. Breitbart’s ankle biting poodle @DLoesch will be taking time off from attending gay exorcisms to fire up RWNJ blogger nation and toss out some
pink slime red meat to her adoring hyenas. Here’s a $100 bet she mentions the Twitter Gulag at least once. Maybe they’ll all get together and decide to change the Gulag moniker to internment camp while they are here.
But there is no bigger star in GOP circles these days than Sheldon Adelson, the Casino billionaire rainmaker. When you promise to throw around $100 million, you make a lot of friends, like it or not.
No figure received more attention than Palin at the RightOnline conference’s opening night, but conservative donor and Israel hawk Sheldon Adelson came close.
An introductory speaker representing the Venetian hotel, where the conference is being held, noted that it’s owned by Adelson.
‘You’re in the only non-union property on the Las Vegas strip,’ he said, to loud cheers and applause eclipsed only by Palin’s entrance.
