Fond du Lac Wisconsin's Saint Patrick' Day parade was slated to have 50 participants. It now only had two after death threats against Republicans forced local police to ask officials not to attend.
"Obviously people have a right to express their political views, we're just concerned for the safety of himself, participants and people that are there to enjoy the parade," Fond du Lac deputy polce chief Kevin Lemke tells WLUK Channel 11.
"It is meant to be a family affair, but this year will have a significant police presence," WLUK reports.
The virtual cancellation of a St. Patrick's Day parade comes just two days after school officials in Portage had to cancel a breakfast with officials after death threats and plans by liberal protesters to invade the school and crash the breakfast made them afraid for childrens' safety.
