(RightIsRight.co) – Former President Donald Trump recently restarted his public appearances after taking a few months off after leaving office. However, his rally schedule took a hit last week after an Alabama park canceled an event, claiming it was going to be a “partisan political event.”
On Monday, June 28, news first broke that park commissioners from the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park in Mobile, Alabama canceled the already planned patriotic event that was scheduled for Saturday, July 3. Commission chairman Bill Tunnell explained that after discussions with the Republican Party, the commission learned the event would be more than “just a political event.”
Politician Jon Cooper shared more about the abrupt cancelation:
Trump's upcoming rally in Alabama has been canceled. The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park commission chairman said that the Republican party contacted them worried about the patriotic event turning into a "partisan political event" instead. https://t.co/qd7vPlL3Ep

This commission’s explanation contradicts the fact that the state park has been used for partisan events in the past, such as a 2012 rally for then-presidential hopeful Rick Santorum. The Alabama Attorney General could not provide an official position, but did note that parks used for political events must be “available for all political parties and candidates on an equal basis.”
While the park has given a reason for canceling the event, many Conservatives simply believe their excuse of it being “too partisan” was solely because some do not want the former president speaking nearby. One local pointed out the cancelation brings up concerns over free speech and the use of public spaces. While this is a small setback, Americans know that President Trump will continue to push forward as Conservatives hope he makes a 2024 presidential bid.
