I wonder if these dimwits (the KKK)will be subjected to extra scrutiny from Homeland Security? I wonder if the local police will see them as gang and put them in the gang data base or issue an injunction..? Imagine if the word went out that the Bloods or Crips were gonna hold a rally?.. In any case lets not forget the KKK are terrorists..
KKK To Rally On Ole Miss Campus Before LSU Game
Ole Miss recently banned their band’s traditional playing of “From Dixie With Love” because people keep shouting “and the South will rise again” at the end of it which is a favored slogan of the KKK.
This has lead to a planned KKK rally on Ole Miss campus before this weekends home game against LSU in protest of the Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones’ decision.
“We aren’t coming there to cause problems or cause trouble,”Shane Tate, the North Mississippi great titan for the Mississippi White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan Tate said. “Trouble has already been caused by a handful at Ole Miss, including the black student body president, who wants to shape Ole Miss into yet another liberal sodomite college.”
This is just embarrassing and it disappoints me what some consider as acceptable tradition.
Here’s the other story
The University of Mississippi’s first-year chancellor followed through on a promise and asked the band to stop playing “From Dixie With Love” because fans chant “the South will rise again” at the end of the medley.
Jones, who became chancellor in July, did not specify how long the song at Rebels games will be off limits, but he said elected student leaders can request its return if the chant stops. The tune blends the Confederate Army’s fight song, “Dixie,” with the Union Army’s “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”
“Here at the University of Mississippi, there must be no doubt that this is a warm and welcoming place for all,” Dan Jones wrote in a letter to the university community. “We cannot even appear to support those outside our community who advocate a revival of racial segregation. We cannot fail to respond.”
The band has played “From Dixie With Love” before and after athletic events for about two decades. The practice of some fans chanting “the South will rise again” started in the past five years. The university’s alumni association and coaches and some high-profile financial supporters, including Netscape founder Jim Barksdale, have said the chant should stop. But some students and fans see Jones’ move as a restriction on free speech.
However in other racial news a judge has temporarily blocked higher education officials from changing the University of North Dakota’s Fighting Sioux nickname. The judges decision has the president of North Dakota’s Board of Higher Education, Richie Smith, fearing that the order could delay the university’s efforts to join the Summit League and re-establish its football rivalry with North Dakota State University.
The dispute has its origins in the NCAA’s August 2005 declaration that the Fighting Sioux nickname and Indian head logo should be abolished.
Kinda of disgusted to even add anything else.
