Wake Co. NC Christmas Parades cancelled due to "threats" of disruption.
The Town of Garner has decided to cancel the 2019 Garner Christmas Parade, which was scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 7, due to concern that the event could be targeted for disruption.

"Make no mistake about it - the Town of Wake Forest is extremely sensitive to the emotion the confederate flag stirs among those on both sides of this issue. We recognize that for some the flag represents racism, hatred and bigotry, while others see it as a representation of Southern heritage protected as a matter of freedom of speech/freedom of expression.

Wake Forest's parade will include both the Sons of Confederate Veterans and United Daughters of the Confederacy, according to a spokesperson for the Sons of Confederate Veterans. The groups have marched in the parade for more than 20 years, "without incident" according to a town spokesperson.

Oh, nope. No Christmas parade for you Wake Forest.

"Groups that contact us about their plans to protest tend to follow our rules and regulations," said Wake Forest Police Chief Jeff Leonard. "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 said his department received "credible information" that a group that planned to show up grew in number from fewer than 10 participants to 200 or more.
