Republicans cannot celebrate Labor Day in Wisconsin

Hope this blows up like a dollar watch.


WAUSAU (WAOW) — Labor Day parade organizers confirm that no Republicans will be allowed to participate in this year’s Labor Day Parade.

Council president Randy Radtke says they choose not to invite elected officials who have “openly attacked worker’s rights” or did nothing when state public workers lost most of their right to collectively bargain.

The parade is sponsored by the Marathon County Labor Council. A Wausau city spokeswoman said the city does not contribute any money to the parade.

Rep. Sean Duffy’s chief of staff, Brandon Moody, released a statement to Newsline 9:

“Having walked in this parade in past years, Congressman Duffy was hoping that for a moment, we could set our differences aside and simply have some fun in a family-friendly event.”

I see you have a misunderstanding of what I'm referring to regarding 'funding.' Paying for the materials inherent in the parade, ticker tape, trophies, etc, are a given. I'm talking about the portion the city foots. The police presence, insurance, etc. The part that was at issue in WI. The Hibernians are able to exclude because they run a private parade, renting security, paying the city like a movie would for exclusive use of streets, self-insured, etc. Again just like would be the case if the WI Labor Council carried out an exclusionary parade.

Really? Is that so?

Then I guess this 2010 AP article is mistaken:
The 249th St. Patrick's Day extravaganza will be the last of New York City's world-famous parades to take place before restrictions go into effect April 1 requiring all parades to be shorter to save money.

John Rupy, of Harpers Ferry, W.Va., considered this news along the parade route, where he arrived dressed in a kilt with his skin painted green.

"That's not good," he said, "because the whole world comes to this."

The city issued the new parade rules in February. All parades must cut routes by 25 percent and reduce time to less than five hours, changes estimated to save $3.1 million in police expenses.
Am I reading that correctly? The CITY pays MORE than $3.1 million for parades including St. Patrick's.

Oh, and by the way:
Representatives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender groups were not allowed to participate in the march — at least, not under their own banner.

Members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, who run the nation's biggest St. Patrick's Day celebration, say they may invite whomever they please.*

Bloomberg favors inclusion, but still planned to participate.
* Obviously they can do this because they're not a Labor Council.
