I think the organizers did the right thing. These folks would just try and take over on the day like they did last year. The organizers just cut that forum out from underneath them. Now they might understand blackmail isn't going to work, it will just piss off all those who enjoy these festivals and turn the general public against them. Hopefully this year is a one off and people will be more reasonable in future.

If any group wants to disrupt a parade that has legal permits etc, that would be disturbing the peace, and they should be arrested if they don't leave.  Yes, by the cops.

If some Christian group interrupted and hijacked the Santa Claus parade in protest, what would happen?  They'd be hauled off by the cops.  Grow some balls, enforce the laws.  Never let bullies win, or they will keep bullying.  And certainly don't let them ruin the party for everyone else when they have a tantrum that they didn't get their way.  The parents of millennials shouldn't have spoiled their children rotten and refused to say "no" to these little twerps.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
