Christmas parades have been cancelled in two North Carolina towns after threats of protests by ANTIFA-style leftists have caused the cities to back down.
“We aren’t happy telling kids they can’t attend or participate in this year’s parade — but it’s better than trying to explain to a parent whose child was injured despite so many warning signs,” Wake Forest Police Chief Jeff Leonard said in a statement.
“We’re concerned about outside agitators that don’t notify us. Radicals don’t typically call ahead. These aren’t area residents we’re talking about. These are professional protesters who have no regard for the safety and well-being of others,” Leonard added.
“For most of us, our annual Christmas parade is about spending time with friends and family and celebrating the spirit of the season,” Wake Forest Mayor Vivian Jones said.
“Yet there are some outside our community whose sole purpose is to use the occasion to promote their political agenda without any regard for the health and safety of our citizens. The [parade organizers] made the wise decision to deny these outside agitators the opportunity to use Wake Forest as a platform to spread hate and incite violence,” she added.
The anger stemmed from the participation of the Sons and Daughters of the Confederacy in the protest. This caused ANTIFA-style thugs to form a social media witch hunt against the parades, which eventually resulted in their cancellation. The digital lynch mob wins again.
Wake Forest is not the only town to cancel its Christmas parade due to the potential for leftist terrorism. The city of Garner, which is a suburb of Raleigh, has also cancelled their parade as well.
This “War on Christmas” agitation was sparked by University of North Carolina (UNC) activists who had participated in a rally against the “Silent Sam” statue on their campus. They had publicly defiled, desecrated and eventually pulled down the statue that was erected in 1913 to honor students who had fought in the Civil War.
Unfortunately for the rabid UNC leftists, the Sons of Confederate Veterans are receiving $2.5 million from the school to restore and relocate the iconic statue. The targeting of the Christmas parades can be seen retribution for the decision.
The Sons of Confederate Veterans promote racist Civil War myths and engage in white supremacist activity.

“For over 70 years, our community Christmas parade has been a beloved family tradition. Not once in all that time has our event been anything less than a peaceful family-friendly celebration that highlights the wonderful spirit of our community. But sadly, times have changed,” Mayor Jones said.
Times have certainly changed, with the civilizational death cult on the march. The Left will crush all American cultural traditions unless they are soundly defeated.
WATCH: Portland ANTIFA Deploys Incendiary Device Directly Against Portland Police in Nightly Riot
This is terrorism.
An ANTIFA militant threw an incendiary device directly at officers of the Portland Police Bureau during a Breonna Taylor riot in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday night.
The device, which may have been a molotov cocktail, caused a considerable fire right next to a formation of marching officers.

The considerably large fire set by the device is quickly extinguished by an officer carrying a fire extinguisher.
This could’ve easily killed someone. Portland ANTIFA elevated its level of agitation and violence on Wednesday night, largely aware that they can act with impunity without fear of consequences from Portland’s neutered police department, complicit prosecutor, and clueless mayor.
Another view of the attack shows just how dangerous the de facto grenade was to the public and to law enforcement. This was an act of terrorism and attempted murder.
Another angle. That person was clearly aiming the Molotov cocktail at police officers. Attempted murder. pic.twitter.com/SE0mWsZ2Aa

The individual who threw the incendiary device was wearing a mask, and runs off on the video footage of the attack. It’s unclear if the Portland Police Bureau arrested them for the criminal act, but he or she could be charged with a range of felony offenses as severe as attempted murder.
The demonstration was declared and riot and dispersed shortly after the attack. It’s likely Portland ANTIFA will continue street havoc in full force this weekend, with the Breonna Taylor grand jury decision(all the way across the country in Kentucky) potentially inspiring the most dangerous street riots in Portland since the organized criminal behavior began more than three months ago.
An Oregon man used a molotov cocktail device in an attempt to start a wildfire in the already devastated state earlier this week. Firefighters have been combating some of the most destructive fires in recent history in Oregon and California, and one man charged with starting them is a longtime left-wing activist with a criminal record of riot violations.
