On Wednesday, Wake Forest became the second Wake County town in a week to cancel its Christmas parade over safety fears. Santa Claus was planning to come to town on Dec. 14, but Wake Forest officials canceled the parade for what is though to be the first time since it started more than 71 years ago.
Town officials said they had received credible information that extremist groups on both sides of the issue of how and whether to preserve and interpret symbols of the Confederacy were making plans online to attend the parade. Crabtree said no one from either side made any threats, but the fear was that that dozens of people from the different groups would clash at the parade and that the situation could get out of hand...
Because the town is a sponsor of the Christmas parade, Crabtree said, it cant shut out a particular group from participating. In the future, he said, turning over the parade entirely to a private organization or a nonprofit community group would allow for closer scrutiny of who is allowed to join the parade.

Diversity is about making everyone equal.
I remember an America where Americans would stand up and tell the people who say we “can’t do something” to go f*** themselves and do it anyway.
That needs to happen again. Every time some SJW POS tells us what to do, tell them “GFYouself”.
They’ve already driven Christ out of Christmas. So I don’t celebrate the present-day “Christ-less.”
I am so triggered
As in LMAO
Bwaa Haaa Haa Ha
The way it’s going, North Carolina will be the next Southern State to fall to Liberalism after what just happened in Virginia.
After that, my best guess is Georgia will be going to the dark side.
Just came through Pittsboro where there was a small group at the courthouse protesting in support of a confederate memorial statue (which was removed back before Thanksgiving) and a handful of protestors protesting the protestors across the street yelling at them for not protesting their perceived politically proper protestations, uh, I presume...
Yep! It is a battering ram used for submission and destruction of the West.
Paul Joesph Watson on his latest video re: the London stabbings but also of the West in general asked this...
Are we sacrificing our children to the gods of political correctness for the sake of diversity?
Canada still honors, with statues and parades Louis Riel, who started an Indian war and was hanged by the Canadian Government for murder and treason.
Australia still honors their one hour long Eureka Rebellion with tributes and flags.
So why can;t the South honor their misguided rebellion which lasted far longer, and took over a million casualties.
Even the Indian Tribes of the High Plains and Oklahoma mostly joined with the South in that war.
Grew up in Vancouver. I have relatives who went to the 2nd oldest university which is Simon Fraser University. Simon Fraser was a Brit general who got killed by the American colonials..
Boy, have you hit upon an overlooked and politically inconvenient point—the fact that many Indians joined the CSA. And this was not as mere individuals—there were whole brigades of Indians serving.
And Manitoba is still Manitoba.
“Town officials said they had received credible information that extremist groups on both sides of the issue of how and whether to preserve and interpret symbols of the Confederacy were making plans online to attend the parade. “
That’s what happens when you willing import hollywood.
The tribes that made or were negotiating treaties with the Confederacy. This list was composed by John Ross, Pro-Union Cherokee chief and sent to Union authorities.
Cherokees, Creeks, Choctaws, Comanches, Wachitas, Kiowas, Pottawattamies, Chickasaws, Osages, Seminoles, Senecas, Shawnees, Quawpaws.
The South also had Indian agents operating all throughout the High Plains and mountain region stirring up other tribes such as the Sioux, Cheyenne, Navajo and Apaches to make war on the Union at that time.
Some tribal members became Unionists but not many. They were known as “PIN” Indians as their badge was two crossed straight pins. They were given permission to kill any white man along the Oklahoma-Arkansas border.
Remember what Benjamin Franklin said, Those that would sacrifice liberty for safety deserve neither.
