Around 1400 liberty activists, most of whom are college students, will have to cancel flights and shift their schedules for this weekend thanks to the government of Dallas, Texas. The ‘Mobilize 2020’ conference hosted by Young Americans For Liberty was scheduled for August 6-8th. The event was initially planned for a venue in Austin, but it was moved to Dallas due to the less restrictive environment, and the plans were finalized a few weeks ago. 

Among the speakers scheduled to address the conference were Senator Rand Paul, Congressmen Thomas Massie and Justin Amash, Governor Kristi Noem, Ron Paul, Glenn Jacobs, Nick Freitas, and many other libertarian and conservative activists.

Without consulting with YAL or the venue, Eric Johnson, the anti-freedom Democratic mayor of Dallas cancelled the event that was scheduled to begin on Thursday, just days before it was scheduled to start. 

“I’m furious. Mobilize 2020 is being shut down by the City of Dallas and their tyrant leadership. This was not a “decision”. The City of Dallas forced the event to be canceled. YAL was given no say whatsoever.”, said Cliff Maloney, the president of YAL in a statement posted to Facebook. 

The hotel hosting the event and YAL reportedly jumped through every hook and complied with every demand made by the politicians who run Dallas. The organization had a multitude of safety measures in place, including social distancing, hygiene, and mask procedures. Still, the city of Dallas forced the event to be cancelled less than three days before it was scheduled to begin. 

Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota tweeted her disappointment in the tyrants’ use of force against the peaceful assembly that the bill of rights was supposed to protect. Noem went against the majority of states when she refused to restrict the liberty of her citizens due to the coronavirus.  

Simply put, this abuse of power violates the right to peaceful assembly, a right that is supposed to be protected by the Constitution. When politicians violate the Constitution, what could be done to punish them?

YAL CONFERENCE CANCELLED: Dallas Says NO To Liberty and YES to Protests | Guest: Cliff Maloney | Ep 72

Texas keeps losing its freedom. Elijah sat down Monday with Cliff Maloney, president of Young Americans for Liberty, to discuss the latest move by the city of Dallas. YAL was suppose to host an event in Dallas, called Mobilize 2020, where 1,400 students from across the U.S. learn about activism and principles of liberty. This event had speakers, 100 elected officials, and 250 investors ready to attend. Haven’t we seen big events like John Lewis funeral, Black Lives Matter protests, and riots across the nation? Freedom is being taken away, mainly from conservatives and libertarians. Is it time to show the MSM and the Democrats that we won’t be silent? Looks like not only Dallas doesn’t want conservatives/libertarians. They also don’t want the economic boost that it surely needs.
