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”.

    [The Plaintiffs have established the location of the $43 trillion
    of laundered money in a criminal racketeering enterprise
    participated in by the following individuals:

    Eric Holder

    Tony West

    Kamala Harris

    Jon Corzine

    Robert Rubin

    Timothy Geitner

    Vikram Pandit

    Valerie Jarrett

    Anita Dunn

    Robert Baueras

    The lawsuit alleges that the Obama Administration actively borrowed
    money from these “Banksters” to fund his political campaign in this
    2012 Election and has not pursued any criminal charges against them]

    believe that’s Bauer, Anita Dunn’s hubby and
    Obama csar, not Baueras, probably a typo..

    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.

    Ok, whiner, here’s a comment about the topic at hand:

    Say Hello to the Hippies and anti-government Radicals, who fought against the establishment in the 1960’s and 1970’s, who now ARE the Establishment. This riot at the university now is simply a replay and revelation of the moral corruption they so heartily endorsed then.

    Happy now?

    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.

    What really can be said about the rioting and mayhem from Obama supporters that hasn’t been said ad nauseum already about the #Occupy movement. It would just be an oft repeated refrain.
