I believe it is being allowed to occur. This is the plan, sadly.

Those damn Republicans, oh wait I am one of those guys and I don't think that I have an evil bone in my body.

Portland rose parade canceled after ‘antifascists’ threaten GOP marchers
For 10 years, the 82nd Avenue of Roses Business Association has kicked off the city of Portland’s annual Rose Festival with a family-friendly parade meant to attract crowds to its diverse neighborhood.
Set to march in the parade’s 67th spot this year was the Multnomah County Republican Party, a fact that so outraged two self-described antifascist groups in the deep blue Oregon city that they pledged to protest and disrupt the April 29 event.
Then came an anonymous and ominous email, according to parade organizers, that instructed them to cancel the GOP group’s registration — or else.
“You have seen how much power we have downtown and that the police cannot stop us from shutting down roads so please consider your decision wisely,” the anonymous email said, referring to the violent riots that hit Portland after the 2016 presidential election, reported the Oregonian. “This is nonnegotiable.”
The email said that 200 people would “rush into the parade” and “drag and push” those marching with the Republican Party.
“We will not give one inch to groups who espouse hatred toward LGBT, immigrants, people of color or others,” it said.
On Tuesday, the business association buckled, announcing it would cancel the parade altogether.
Well, in obvious contrast to my thread on the Evil Ann Coulter, I will just say good!
I'm glad this happened because republicans are evil and wrong and threats work!
Maybe enough people can stop going to republican-owned stores and we can make the republicans wear something on their sleeve like an elephant.
I'm sure no one will be upset with this because, hey, it's just republicans, and they suck.
Maybe if enough people just start threatening violence to make political change, things will get better!
