Obama re-election protest escalates at Univ. of Mississippi; racial slurs, 2 arrests reported
wapo ^ | Nov 7 2012 | Associated Press,

Posted on 11/07/2012 10:21:07 PM PST by NoLibZone

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.

One arrest for drunkenness, one for failing to listen to an “officer”... Tough night at Ole Miss, BUT nothing like it is made to sound!

“...More ‘evidence’ we are racists...”

Maybe its time we responded that we’re not prejudiced. We base our feelings on empirical evidence. After carefully reviewing that evidence we have decided that we should be racists.

To paraphrase the film YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, A riot is a terrible thing...but its about time we had one!

Wow. Does the reporter think John Wilkes Booth mightve been in the crowd? Amazing how actual racist students everywhere else hold anti american protests regularly and it never makes the paper, but this does. Additionally, why is the university bad-mouthing these students? Is this unconstitutional? Finally, if there’s a more disenfranchised demographic than southern white Christians I’m eager to hear it. They have every reason to protest the policies of Obama and his minions.

I was updated as it unfolded by my friends daughter that attends the college.The kids were teargassed but no report of that.I told her to tell the other students that they are the new hippies and to rage against the machine.

I can just see the holder DOJ swooping down and launching a full scale investigation with trials and public floggings.
And plenty of hate crimes.

Yes, would be guilty of a ‘hate crime’ were I there.
I hate dumb arse pols, commies, libs, socialists etc so may as well ‘perp walk’ me outta there....

Someone mentioned tear gas, if the kids can play their cards right, they should be able to sue..

Oh wait...that is right NOT an establishment ‘protest’.

The Black have lost all or any respect I ever had, they have proved they are not worth it. Obama has set their Race back 50 years.

We tried giving them everything they demanded at our expense, nothing worked. I am finished with the "trying" to appease them.

We're not talking the educated Black's i.e. Allen West, Sowell, Thomas, etc.... I am talking rappers, ghetto slugs.

“The Black have lost all or any respect I ever had, they have proved they are not worth it. Obama has set their Race back 50 years. “

Dems and pop culture can take any ethnic group, including whites, and get the same results. Look at Sandra Fluke and Lena Dunham. They knew exactly who they were targeting.

The libertarians don’t get this. More sluts => more dependency on government. It’s not enough that they have legal abortion and birth control but they want everyone else to pay for it.

Police were initially alerted to Tuesday’s uproar by people who saw Twitter posts about it.

Trending on twitter last night was the phrase "F*** white people", but there's no uproar over that. Isn't that curious?

http://twitchy.com/2012/11/07/with-first-post-racial-president-reelected-fk-white-people-trends/

-----

I read about this online -- apparently some young female "journalist" from the paper was trying to turn this into some kind of race riot, which of course it wasn't, though there were a couple of kids that were rowdy and drunk that fit into her race-narrative. So she did her own university a huge disservice by sensationalizing it into a "race riot". And of course the national drive-by's have to tie in an incident from 50 years ago to pile on.

The reality is that the good blacks, such as those you cited, are just a small sliver of the totality, maybe 5% tops. The overwhelming majority of blacks despise genuine American values. The block voting by blacks, election after election, undeniably proves that.

Not to pick on you at all, but the term black is almost always capitalized regardless of the venue. Yet, when referring to the white race, the convention is to use lowercase. I think that's part of a longstanding liberal agenda to diminish whites and exalt blacks. It's a little thing but it's also reflected in the way the lamestream media characterizes whites. Look at the television programs that invariably depict whites as bumbling fools and blacks as heroic. (I just saw the Allstate commercial where a white man is mocked and a black guy is presented as a distinguished, erudite spokesman).

Yes. Under the evil GW Bush black unemployment was around 7%. Now it's over 14%. And black teenagers? 50%!

Obama has screwed black people over, way more than any other racial group.

Thanks for the nice reply, annieokie and for the good natured comeback. :-)

Words have meaning and one of the other things that gets my dander up is the OMB's use of the term "non-Hispanic white" to classify we Caucasians. Like the lettercase, it's a little thing but whites are subtly diminished by such government nomenclature.

Those are but minor annoyances compared to my one man mission to wipe out the term "gay" as used by sodomites. The homosexual agenda has advanced a number of evil things including usurping a perfectly fine word to make it dirty. I'm proud to say that I was in gay marriage for some 40 years before my beautiful, Christian wife died. We had a wonderful, happy and joyous life together and were disgusted that the sodomites corrupted the true meaning of the word. I want America back! And I want my word back!

Thanks so much for letting me vent...

Thank you. When will people here learn that we will be called racists no matter what-for pity’s sake, people got called racist for mentioning golf in the same breath with Hussein-and while they’re at it, why don’t we actually take the accusation up and look out for the best interests of our race and our children for a change? God knows no one else is going to!

Well if they don’t care I don’t, and they obviously love it to vote for Hussein again in the numbers they did. Whites are going to have their hands full looking after our own, who else gives a hang about our white children? Not blacks. We had better open our eyes and get off our knees regarding race or we’re finished, and who will support all the deadbeats then?

I’m no fan of the Somalis here in my city because of their tax return tactics (including the adding of dependents who are their multiple wives and children who do not even live in the USA)

But there is one Somali who told me this. It was during Colombus Day and the news of the day was about whites and how to stop racism. My Somali coworker laughed and told me: “They cannot stop racism! That’s impossible. It’s normal! Let me give you an example”, he told me “If I took you to Mogadishu to visit my grandmother and you held out your hand to shake hers, she would refuse. Why? Because you are white. She has never touched white skin before. She’d be afraid. Racism is everywhere, Joe” he told me.

You are quite welcome, anytime. Seems we in FR are all on the same Mission since yesterday.

FED up and not going to take it any longer, willingly.

I'm with you on the words, I have been saying the same thing for so long now. The word "GAY" has been corrupted to mean UGLY, I too want it back.

Therefore we should use it to our own advantage and often in as many conversations as we can. "I love my gay friends and family, I love gay parties", see how that works and it's easy. Gay...happy...lovely...delightful...pure clean fun......

Come on Freepers, we can do this. Double Dare you.

Call them what they are "Homos", "Queers", "Fags", then there are others that I will not use.

The Blacks I do feel sorry for are the ones who are decent people — the ones who don’t want the ‘soft racism’ of low expectations almost every liberal lunatic flouts and doesn’t even realize they are manifesting.

Case in point: Barry’s “Nobel peace prize” — if he had had any brains instead of the narcissistic personality he has, he’d have been offended to even be offered the award for essentially showing up for work black. Because the nominations for the thing were closed in less than two weeks after he took office, and other than possibly being able to find his way to the executive washroom without assistance, he’d done zip all to deserve any kind of recognition.

But instead of saying: “thank you for considering me, but I decline on the grounds that I have done nothing to achieve this award — I’d prefer if you did not have the racism of low expectations of me — because if I was white it would be laughable to receive such an award for doing nothing - perhaps someday I will do something to merit this - but I do not accept plaudits for merely having black skin and showing up for work,” But what did he do? Took the thing, the prize, and acted like he was king Dick. Like he’d actually achieved something. Little Mr. Eye-Candy, affirmative action pass.

I’ve known that for a while, and thank God I learned it early. The astounding thing is that even conservatives refuse to see that blacks don’t give a hang about them, mock them for their appeasement, and then take whatever they can get from idiot whites. Even conservatives just will not open their eyes.

Amen!

We're nearing the Christmas season and I'm fed up with the inevitable snickers and smirks when "Deck the Halls" is sung with the phrase "gay apparel". In the America I grew up, everyone knew the true meaning of the word and delighted in the carol. The country I grew up in during the 40's and 50's was a far better, less evil place than it's become today. Ike wasn't a perfect president but he was magnitudes better than the hateful homunculus now disgracing the White House.

Since we have done all we can to try to help them improve themselves, and since the educated decent blacks will not speak out or do something in their own neighborhoods to stop this. WE are finished with it, wash our hands so to speak.

I have a Sec 8 tenant, her over element went out, and the stove is an old one. I told her I was thinking of putting in a new stove, but I needed to know that she would keep it clean. (when I last viewed it, it was filthy).

Know what she did? She started cussing me out, calling me names, tried to intimidate me, I hung up.

Know what I did? Sent my repair man out, he put in a used element. lol

While he was there, she was still cussing me out, said she thought she was getting a new stove. Repair man told her, "your landlord was going to put in a new stove, but I see now why she didn't".

Boy was she pissed, left another horrible message on my answering machine. rofl LOVE IT........"REVENGE" works.
