University of Mississippi Students “Riot” After Obama Wins (Video)

University of Mississippi students “rioted” last night after Barack Obama was reelected President of the United States.
Police were called in during the mayhem.

The Washington Post reported:

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.

Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones promised an investigation and said “all of us are ashamed of the few students who have negatively affected the reputations of each of us and of our university.”

On Wednesday night, about 700 people held up candles and called for racial harmony outside the administrative building at the university in Oxford, countering Tuesday’s protest over Obama’s re-election.

    You think Romney and McCain were disasters, Huckabee would make Dole look positively Reaganesque electable.

    Huck is as much a part of the problem, being a very entrenched GOP Elitist, as anyone in charge of the RNC. No thanks, you can have him, we don’t need another moderate fossil simply because “it’s his time”.

    On reflection last night I noticed something rather perverse about the last two VP picks, both by moderates.

    Two very strong, very conservative people had their chances of being GOP POTUS candidates severely diminished by being attached to such spectacularly failing candidacies of “nice guy” moderates.

    I still vividly remember Obama welcoming Mitt as his opponent, months ago.

    So where is YOUR comment about the topic of the thread? So far you’ve complained twice and said NOTHING about the riot.

    Maybe the others are dealing with the aftermath of the events of last night in their own way, grieving and struggling to come to grips with it all.

    You come across as demanding to dictate what others do here, on a blog not yours, so maybe you need to follow your own advice and get your own blog so you can lord it over others like the tin-pot dictator you apparently crave to be. You’ll find out that running a blog, especially one as popular and widely read as GP, is not an easy thing.

    Know Your Enemy: Hispanic Leaders Brag About Being Responsible For Obama’s Reelection

    Keep in mind that a higher percentage of hispanics voted for Obama this time than in 2008. When you allow for a foreign invasion, you hand power to those foreign interests.

    Excerpted from BuzzFeed: Latino leaders said on a press call Wednesday morning that the decisive factor in President Obama’s reelection was the Latino vote. Latino Decisions’ election night polling indicates that 75% of Latinos voted for President Obama and 23% voted for Mitt Romney.

    “For the first time in American history,” said Gary Segura, professor at Stanford University and founder of Latino Decisions, “the Latino vote can be said to be decisive. If the Latino vote had been split equally, Obama would have lost the popular vote.”

    According to the report by Latino Decisions, Obama’s share of the Latino vote would exceed the record set by Bill Clinton in the 1996 election, when he received 72% of support from Latinos.

    A projected 12.2 million Latinos participated in this election, according to leaders on the call. In 2008, a record number of 9.7 million participated.

    “The Latino giant is wide-awake, cranky, and it’s taking names,” said Eliseo Medina, a leader of the labor union SEIU. “Yesterday Latinos were the key vote in electing a president, and now we are a part of history.”

    “President Obama won Latino support the old-fashioned way — by supporting comprehensive immigration reform,” added Medina. “Romney really screwed up on the immigration issue. He sealed his fate in the primaries.”

    Citing Romney’s support of the Arizona immigration laws, as well as his pledge on the trail that he would veto the DREAM Act, Medina said, “We’re not stupid…There was nothing Romney could say to win the Latino vote.”

    Are you telling me that some anti-Obama types are rascist? Say it ain’t so. Surely these Romney thugs were merely dismayed by his policies.

    Sheriff Joe Wins Big; Other Immigration Warriors Prevail Nationwide (Silver Linings)

    Barack Obama was re-elected last night. Yes, it sucks. Big time.

    Ok, that’s enough. Boo freakin’ hoo. We don’t have the luxury of self-pity, or bellyaching. It’s time to double down and fight on. Illegal immigration is an existential threat to the U.S. And we will never give up on this nation.

    Besides, it wasn’t all disappointment last night. Some very good friends of SWA did just fine despite massive opposition, principally among them, Sheriff Joe Arpaio – by far the most prominent national symbol in the fight against illegal immigration.

    Sheriff Joe faced by far the toughest battle of his career, as leftist billionaire George Soros opened his checkbook against Joe, huge national unions bused in 900 activists to register 34,000 Latino voters to try and knock him off, and ABC News and the New York Times hammered Joe with campaign ads posing as “journalism” to try and defeat a great patriot.

    They all failed – miserably. Joe Arpaio defeated his opponent last night by 10 percentage points. We were thrilled to do our part in this campaign. SWA does not have the checkbook of Soros, nor the paid activists of the unions. But we do have nearly 100,000 members in Arizona who went to work – voting, calling, canvassing – working tirelessly to make sure America’s Sheriff stayed on the job another 4 years. And it paid off. We are very proud of all of our members’ efforts today. Thank you all!

    Way to go, Sheriff Joe!

    Posted by Ann Barnhardt – November 7, AD 2012 6:23 PM MST
    Now do you understand why I had precious little to say about the “election”? The results of this election were determined in 2008, including the faux-opposition candidate. You people who have spent the last several months breathlessly agonizing over this, analyzing fake polls and deluding yourselves into believing that this was somehow a legitimate operation are just sad. You’re like the people in Iraq who supported the opposition candidate to Saddam Hussein for all of those years. Yes, Saddam Hussein held “elections”. Regularly. That is what happened here yesterday. We had a Saddam Hussein “election”.

    This can all be summed up in one simple sentence that I have been screaming from the rooftops ever since November of 2008:

    These people are NEVER going to walk away.

    The Republic was overthrown in a neo-Stalinist putsch four years ago. Stalinists don’t walk away. Ever. Stalinists don’t hold elections – they put on shows to delude the masses, which they consider to be vermin, into believing that they still have some say and some degree of freedom. And when even that gets tiresome for them, they start slaughtering people. By the tens of millions.

    Note that all of the so-called pundits on the so-called “right” are avoiding the issue of massive voter fraud. They’re all just spewing the same nonsense as ever:

    The fight has just begun! This is when the real hard work begins! Yay! We’ll show ’em in 2016! Yay!

    Meanwhile, here in the land of reality, my inbox is filling with emails from people who are just now realizing that they are probably going to die an unnatural death, and probably within the next several years.

    But it’s cool, because Ace put up a recipe thread today. Spit on one’s hands and hoist the black flag, indeed!

    So, what to do now? I have several action items for you. These are all re-hash, but I’ll put them together and re-post them because maybe, just maybe, you people are actually ready to listen and do something. READ ON HERE

  • AvidChristian

    Im afraid I have to agree with Patty…there was no “political race” to begin with. The outcome was fixed from the start. I had thought maybe there would be a race, but it was all staged. Barry’s lackluster 1st debate performance and his open mic “I’ll have more flexibility” comment say it all…he knew he’d win. The hotly contested battleground states, where the race was SO tight, were already predetermined too. We forgot the other team doesn’t play fair. How many voter fraud schemes have you EVER heard of involving Repubs? It always seem to be the other side. I know there are MILLIONS of stupid people in this country, but you can’t convince me they make up the majority…especially considering virtually 90%+ of our military can’t stand Barry. We have seen the end of fair elections at the national level.

  • Monkey Wrench


    There have not been any cases of voter fraud on either side. The battleground states were close, but most were never SO close. Obama held a small but consistent lead in the swing states. If you looked at the polls, you could see that Obama was winning. For some reason the conservative media (Fox News, talk radio…) kept running stories about how the polls were wrong. All that nonsense about over sampling Dems was misleading. As a result, people who only listen to conservative media believed that Romney was winning.

    All you had to do was look at the average of the various polls and it was plain to see that Obama was going to win. Nate Silver again predicted the election outcome almost perfectly.

    Romney lost because he is a bad politician. He might have made a good president, but he never sold the American people.

  • Campfollower

    I posted on a thread here at Gateway as the “riot” was happening. On the phone with my daughter, a senior at Ole Miss.

    According to her (she was caught in the middle of it) she’s never seen so many students on campus. There was a large group of black students together, she says chanting “provacatively”…as more students came around to see what was happening, someone pulled a fire alarm in a freshman dorm and more people came out. She really thought they’d set the dorm on fire. As I was telling her to leave, get home, she said the Oxford police — really good guys who I’ve met each time I’ve been there — came out in force to stop any violence from breaking out. There was no violence that we know of, only verbal yelling and typical intoxication from students at 2am.

    Many people don’t know the story about Ole Miss…the riots in the 60s are just the past. Today’s students are firmly in 2012, sharing rap concerts, football and other activities. It’s probably still more divided than other colleges, but generally, these are kids who’ve grown up together and get along just fine. We saw this in our high school in an upper middle class Atlanta suburb also….young black kids who were excited about Obama, but also somewhat militant and “in your face” with other kids and even the administrators in the high school. In 2008, the high schoolers wouldn’t know “the hood” — they are fully integrated, suburban kids whose parents worked for corporations, kids who had travelled the world in many cases, but who ganged up and ran through the halls with raised fists, trying to intimidate McCain supporters. Oh yeah, someone had t-shirts printed with the provacative slogan, “Obama is OUR president.” Obama never has done anything to quell this type of response, instead says to them, “vote for REVENGE.” Well, these kids, in almost all cases, are well to do from well educated families. It really reminds me of how the radical Muslims gin up their well to do young people to be radicals, inciting them to violence. Obama is just wired this way. NO LEADERSHIP…instead of trying to calm things, he loves to agitate.

    Ole Miss is a great school and doesn’t deserve for the media to automatically assume it was “anti-Obama protests.” The students for Romney were having peaceful watch parties at The Library and other taverns around town, and simply came out to see what was happening. Things got a bit out of hand before the young Oxford police force put it down. The police there, and this is very important, are out in force each evening, by the way, always helping the kids out, making sure they get home safely and very good natured, meeting parents who are there going to the bars with their kids and having fun at the wonderful downtown Oxford restaurants…..Ole Miss doesn’t deserve to be trashed because of this incident. Obama and his lack of leadership on race relations does.

    thank you, that is Barry’s goal, ergo, it’s no wonder to me as to
    why he and his party not only favor Islamists over Republicans,
    but Americans in general..

    Obama’s ‘Missing Link’

    Meeting Young Obama

    [Boss and Obama, however, had a starkly different view. They believed that the economic stresses of the Carter years meant revolution was still imminent. The election of Reagan was simply a minor set-back in terms of the coming revolution. As I recall, Obama repeatedly used the phrase “When the revolution comes….” In my mind, I remember thinking that Obama was blindly sticking to the simple Marxist theory that had characterized my own views while I was an undergraduate at Occidental College. “There’s going to be a revolution,” Obama said, “we need to be organized and grow the movement.” In Obama’s view, our role must be to educate others so that we might usher in more quickly this inevitable revolution.

    I know this may be implausible to some readers, but I distinctly remember Obama surprising me by bringing up Frantz Fanon and colonialism. He impressed me with his knowledge of these two topics, topics which were not among my strong points — or of overwhelming concern to me. Boss and Obama seemed to think their ideological purity was a persuasive argument in predicting that a coming revolution would end capitalism. While I felt I was doing them a favor by providing them with the latest research, I saw I was in danger of being cast as a reactionary who did not grasp the nuances of international Marxist theory.]

    Even Republicans Rejected Info About Obama’s Past

    [What would you do if you knew that the top Democrat
    running for president was lying about his past?

    That is the question I was faced with in 2008. I had met the young Barack Obama while he was a sophomore at Occidental College, and I knew that his commitment to socialism was deep, genuine, and longstanding. See my earlier article on American Thinker.

    I had been a leader of the Marxist students at Occidental College myself, starting in 1976 when I founded the precursor of the Democrat Socialist Alliance on campus. The young Obama I knew was a Marxist socialist who would have been quite comfortable with Communist party members like his Hawaii mentor Frank Marshall Davis, retired domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers, or active socialist politicians like Illinois State Senator Alice Palmer.]
