JACKSON, Miss. — A protest at the University of Mississippi against the re-election of President Barack Obama grew into crowd of about 400 people with shouted racial slurs as rumors of a riot spread on social media. Two people were arrested on minor charges.

The university said in a statement Wednesday that the gathering at the student union began late Tuesday night with about 30 to 40 students, but grew within 20 minutes as word spread. Some students chanted political slogans while others used derogatory racial statements and profanity, the statement said.

The incident comes just after the 50th anniversary of violent rioting that greeted the forced integration of Ole Miss with the enrollment of its first black student, James Meredith.

I also heard something about a crowd of hundreds of people in Benghazi, Libya attack our diplomatic posts with RPGs, mortars and automatic weapons and murder our ambassador and three others.

Maybe WaPo could take an interest in that episode as well?

You didn’t? Where did you think it would go when the takers outnumber the producers? Did you think the producers were going to just bend over and take it? The push back is just beginning.

If by “it” you mean back to segregation of the pre 1960’s then I’d say “yes”. We are heading back to that at warp speed.

My dear Cololeo, for the last 24 hours I have been taking shots of kaopectate like it was hard whiskey. Give me about a week to recover from this nightmare and then I’ll think strait.

However, it will be in reverse...

Young people are connected to online social media like breathing air.

Obama supporters respond to win by tweeting ‘F**k white people’

How come we almost never hear about “racial slurs” in headlines about, say, unruly crowds of blacks in northern cities? Are they just more decorous?

I bet Obama supporters started this by being nasty and not classy winners.

We are a sea of red being soiled and berated by scattered bastions of blue-goo who have learned how to fix elections so their favored candidate wins by stuffing 2% more votes than the competitor.

Romney lost to thuggery, buggery and dope!

Should not the Obama folks (I do not use “folks” as a racial slur but only as an object of the adjective “Obama”) just wave all taxation and borrow all the money by having the federal reserve bank print up the three or four trillion they burn through each year, then taxes are taken out of everybody via inflation.

as for the debt ceiling, break the glass ceiling and raise it to infinity! The other option for Boehner is to raise it only quarterly at smaller increments to get the thugs to the table and get something the house republicans want for their constituents. What are we anyway chopped liver?. Fat chance, Boehner has no scones.

I am going to listen to the Lone Ranger who said, “High-oh Silver, away!”

Buy Silver, gold is too high to be practical to trade.

As for dollars, spend them before they are worthless.

My final thought is we are the largest minority and we need to begin to act like it. We are the 48%!

Demand representation now! Obama and his press will try to force you to the back of the bus. He won but we have the control of the economy.

Don’t just do something, sit there!

As soon as the media declared Obama won Ohio, I deactivated every social media account I had.

This is all I have left. Cable goes this weekend. Hannity is done and I might listen to Rush.

I will pull the lever for the mst conservatve candidate and that will be it.

I am not surprised by all this. Obama is the most divisive United States of America President EVER.

I have been saying this the last day or so, because I am so fearful for the country that I love, that this could be the start of the civil war 2 that I fear could very well come.

All we could do is pray for America.

What’s happening here is that the 0bama’s media are moving on to the next phase:

Demonizing and intimidating those who protest the Thug-in-chief and setting up the scenario for his opponents to be charged with “hate” crimes (thought crimes)and persecuted.

It’s a time old story and tactic of tyrannies that we should have learned from history.

Those who like to get misty -eyed after losing another election to the cheaters, maundering on abut a “peaceful transition” blah, blah,blah, will be very surprised as the real effects of this election start to show themselves. They are not prepared at all for the spontaneous backlash that is brewing.

You don’t have to use overt measures. The East Germans simply sat down in the streets and didn’t go to work. That was the end of the Communist government. It’s “the consent of the governed” thing. D.C. couldn’t last a week without everyone else working.

Obama has helped create the race war that's ongoing, one does not win any war by playing defense all the time. This incident is a manifestation of that fact.

“D.C. couldn’t last a week without everyone else working.”

I like your idea. Perhaps a one day national strike on Patriot’s Day, April 19, might get the ball rolling.

black radical students sent FB messages to white students calling them racist names... taunting them over the “black takeover of America” and threatened the crackers with obamarevenge. The media will not tell you the truth... the blacks wanted to start a race war online and they were hoping to expand it into the real world.

Last time I checked, that doesn’t mean you riot.

Lol, you think this incident at Ole Miss was a riot? Are there burned buildings? Burned vehicles? And do you think the media will provide honest reporting on an incident such as this?

Are you actually reading the story... you do know that I am in Mississippi and I have talked with students that are kids of friends of mine? A couple of boys burned two obama/biden signs... some riot! blacks and whites hollered names at each other for about 20 minutes. Most students just watched in amazement.

All you can hope for is that such nonsense is “reported” to FB and from there, FB WILL HAVE TO take the site DOWN.

As a southerner, I agree with your contention, but when we lost the civil war we lost the bully pulpit to the yankee press.
