Can you just feel the “tolerance” here?

Well isn’t that special:

A threatening email has derailed one of the Portland Rose Festival’s signature events, and spurred new debate about the ongoing political protests in Portland.

Organizers of the 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade announced Tuesday that the event will be canceled, for fear that the east Portland parade could be disrupted by “the type of riots which happen in downtown Portland.”

Ironically, The Oregonian also reports that one purpose of the parade was to “turn around the negative perception many people have of the area.”
