I attended the 2009 Sean Hannity Freedom Concert in San Diego yesterday. I can't disclose how I got in or how I got my really good seat that put me next to the stage and near to the Hannity clan (who were having a great time) and allowed me to post the first online photo of the Hannity's rather fetching wife.
Damn, I didn't see too many non-white people. Reminded me of the Bill O'Reilly event I covered for this blog in 2003 or the Nader 2000 campaign rally I attended.
I saw Carrie Prejean (who earlier was a guest on hanity's Fox News TV show before the concert (she also breifly spoke at the concert). Other non-musicians who appeared were actors Jon Voight and Jim Caviezel and Hannity's friend and fellow talk radio jock Mark Levin (I have written about Levin (click here and scroll down).
Performing at the concert were Lee Greenwood, Charlie Daniels, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Michael W. Smith. Hannity came out and sang "The Devil went Down to Georgia"; Hannity changed the lyrics a little near the end of the song, he tells the Devil, "I done told you once you liberal son of a bitch, I'm the best there's ever been"). The weirdest moment was during Michael W. Smith's performance. Smith introduced actor Jim Caviezel (who played Jesus in Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ). Caviezel spoke of his troubles during the filming such as dislocating his arm and being struck by lightning and how Smith's songs got him through the difficult shoot. Smith then sang a song as Caviezel sat on stage.
When I was in line to get into the venue, a follower of fringe presidential candidate Lyndon Larouche handed me the pamphlet pictured on the right that superimposes a photo of Obama with Hitler. That alone doesn't becasue LaRouchies go to progressive events too. However, it was rather revealing that when Hannity's fellow radio talk show host Mark Levin told the crowd about taking on "Obama and his brownshirts."
I will update this post later. One final quick thought: I knew I had to take some of the finest SoCal chronic with me to the event. There were 13,000 people attending a music concert and I was probably the only one there who was baked.
