'Riots' brew on Ole Miss campus (Obama Signs Being Torched)
WMCTV ^ | 11/7/2012

OXFORD, MS -

(WMC-TV) – Reports are coming in that riots are brewing on the Ole Miss campus in Oxford, Mississippi.

Phone calls are coming into our newsroom and photos are being posted to Twitter of the situation on campus.

The Ole Miss campus television station is reporting the alleged "riots" are instead protests.

Photos show huge group of people on the campus, some even lighting Obama-Biden signs on fire in response to the presidential election results.

Ole Miss journalism student Margaret Ann Morgan posted to Twitter, "Onlookers say people- black, white, etc- throwing rocks at cars."

She continued, "Students of all races yelling on rebel drive. Lots of racial slurs."

Morgan also mentioned she is ashamed at what she saw and heard on her campus following the election.

Nicholas Carr claims no rocks were thrown and the majority of the people at the protests were there to see what was going on.

"I was there the whole time. No rocks were thrown. There was 1 sign lit on fire. For about 45 seconds," Carr said. "Mostly, it was 100s of college kids who heard the word riot and ran to take pictures and see what it was about. Again, no rocks or missiles thrown."

Action News 5 has a crew on the way to Oxford. Keep checking with WMCTV.COM for updates.

A friend over in Lucedale, Miss has relatives who go to Ole Miss and she said there was tons of “in your face” moments happening on campus between whites and blacks all day and the word was circulating fast that the election had been stolen causing tensions to rise up tonight.

The county isn’t in a mood for a group hug. I’m especially disturbed at how divided we are along ethnic lines: Several separate countries occupying the same physical space.

Lots of bad outcomes all around possible in the coming years.

Though I still do not understand why God took both my longtime boyfriend and now my only brother home, but I sense it is because this nation, the United States of America is in HUGH and I MEAN HUGH BIGTIME TROUBLE and NEEDS more intercessors at the throne of Amighty God.

This country has refused to get control of it’s borders and as a result we now have masses of people in this nation who will forever vote Democrat(Communist).

Balkanization is here and in the now.

Pat Buchanan warned us.

Don’t give in to emotion because they will manipulate you and turn your emotions against you. It’s what they do best.

I'm not surprised at all. This was the goal of Emmanual Celler and the Frankfurt School (with a little help from people like the Kennedys).

Obama said “we are not as divided as our politics would have you believe”

Yes. We are. We are more deeply divided than we have been since the civil war.

Anyone else predicting a massive drop in military enlistment after this election? I can’t imagine people being willing to fight for this country anymore.

We chose this. Demographics is destiny, and Western civilization decided to not show up.

The GOP will not win a national election again unless they start handing out more free stuff to immigrants.

I was thinking this same thing last night. I sure wouldn’t. And Obama sure won’t miss them.

They will still lose because they will be trying to hand out less of the “free stuff”.

Frustration from real students who get it that Obama is bad for the future. They have every right to vent since the left does it all the time.

To where?

Look at the fault lines, there is no real boundary. It is large city vs small towns and rural.

You are missing the point of the socialist economy. The military will become just another government check and fiefdom.

I think this will reduce military recruiting a lot. We left four men behind in Benghazi. No one cared.

isn’t the reason for all the gubmint goodies the unstated fear of rioting by poor and minorities? The left will go bozo over this little trifle, but their power is partially due to violence.

Seems to me like the imbeciles who voted this communist son of a muzzie loving whore into office will still have the franchise for a long time to come.

The real enemy is right next door.

When you live in a nation where AT LEAST 48% of the population will still vote for a communist a second time, in spite of the damage he’s done, it’s time to start thinking about finding a new country to raise your kids.

This one is all over but the shouting.

I see mass emigration to Australia, Honduras, Panama, etc.

That won't bother 0bama at all. That way he can complete the transformation of the U.S. military into his own private militia, pro-gay, pro-Islamic, anti-Christian, anti-Israel, anti-conservative military, loyal only to him.

God help our nation. We need a great, bloody battle civil war, if we ever hope to regain our country.

if over a million racist blacks had not voted then VA,FL, OH would not have been close.

fact is and noone will admit this but blacks came out to vote YET AGAIN to to vote for the NON WHITE GUY.
They voted based on their racist views and then there was the welfare crowd, along with the thick stupid voters whioch see an AD and think it is the truth

I’m trying to figure out how I will stomach Veteran’s Day - hearing all the lip service “honor” for veterans, when the whole country just got done pissing on the grave of Tyrone Woods and the others killed in Benghazi because the foreign enemy combatant occupying our White House vetoed all the contingency plans for this very kind of situation.

I think I will just make sure I don’t have to hear it. Avoid all media and stay home. Ironically, I honor our veterans too much to go along with the farce of that day.
