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.
It would be great if Garner and Wake Forest could carry on with future Christmas parades without including divisive and hurtful symbols like the Confederate flag. pic.twitter.com/xeyZ1YlDT4

“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.
Seven ANTIFA Militants Facing Federal Charges for Attack on Portland Courthouse
They attacked a courthouse.
Seven ANTIFA-linked left-wing rioters are facing federal charges for a mass attack on the Hatfield Federal Courthouse in Portland last week.
A press release from the Department of Justice names the criminal suspects, announcing that they would be charged federally for their sophisticated and aggressive attack on the federal building.
“Rowan Olsen, 19, of Portland, is charged with disorderly conduct, creating a hazard on federal property, and failing to obey a lawful order; Shant Singh Ahuja, 28, of Oceanside, California, is charged with destruction of federal property; and Andrew Steven Faulkner, 24, of Beaverton, Oregon; Gretchen Margaret Blank, 29, of Seattle, Washington; Christopher Fellini, 31, of Portland; Cody Porter, 28, of Portland; and Taimane Jame Teo, 24, of Eugene, Oregon, are charged with assaulting federal officers.”
7 people arrested, facing charges after attacking fed law officers protecting courthouse via “aerial fireworks including mortars; high intensity lasers targeting officers’ eyes; thrown rocks, bottles, and balloons filled with paint from demonstrators.”https://t.co/dBGrMabZ1N

ANTIFA-linked militants had waged a siege on the federal building, deploying high-intensity lasers in an attempt to blind federal law enforcement, the use of crude mortar devices to cause destruction, barricading the facility doors to keep law enforcement trapped inside, and covering it with leftist graffiti.
One of the ANTIFA rioters was also arrested in possession of a pipe bomb in the presence of a separate left-wing riot in Portland.

This appears to be some of the most intense and sophisticated political terrorism since the beginning of the George Floyd riots, openly attacking a federal facility in coordination with the intent of overthrowing the United States government.
If the criminal suspects aren’t vigorously prosecuted and sentenced appropriately for the coordinated violence, the federal government will simply lose any and all credibility in deterring left-wing political violence and open the door for ANTIFA to stage more attacks with impunity.
With the Portland Police largely called off by left-wing city officials from cracking down on ANTIFA militancy, it’s largely up to the federal authorities to uphold the rule of law and the preservation of the United States government in the leftist utopia.
