Following President Obama's re-election last night a group of University of Mississippi students—who are angry as well. Last night they gathered on campus in front of several dorms to protest the re-election of Obama.... As many as 400 students are said to have participated. There are also reports that several students were arrested during the protest, though none have been officially charged.
There were mixed reports about whether or not rocks were thrown as well.The University leadership strongly condemns this kind of behavior and is embarrassed that any students associated with the university would use this kind of language. Our university creed calls for the respect of each individual and for fairness and civility. The investigation of this event will be thorough and individuals found in violation of any law will be referred to appropriate authorities. Individuals found in violation of university policy will be dealt with appropriately through the student conduct process.

    But then I believe in freedom so I believe all Americans have a right to protest as long as it is done within the law. No crapping on police cars, no pooping in public, no destruction of private property, etc. Just as long as it is within the laws.

    Yes but on both sides if a Pro Obama riot broke out over the Victory of Romney in Mississippi you can bet a few heads would have been cracked and video tape watched and student TOSSED What happened on Ole Miss Campus was a RIOT like the good old Days of the 1950's

    As long as the protests are legal, they should be allowed. Just because a few idiots got stupid and said and did stupid things, as kids will do, it should be dealt with legally and handled on a case by case basis.

    if this were a legal protest on university grounds they have to have submitted a request to hold such a rally. If any of the ground rules put in place by the governing body of the university were violated, then yes the university had the right to shut it down.

    As long as protests are peaceful, there is no reason to stop them for any reason.

    If there is violence, the police should be involved and perpetrators of violence arrested.

    No, the communists should not be tampering with the lawful right to free speech by those who want to be free of Socialist mendacity.

    Let's see...innocent students having their free speech infringed...murderers and rapists being harassed.

    Yeah, that's a real tough one. You sure know how to argue. Can I tag another conservative into the ring? Not certain I can withstand the rhetorical assault. Please, please, let me out of the ring! I beg you!

    the OWS, had thousands more people and unfortunately attracted a few miscreants.the whole OWS wasn't a bunch of criminals, and you know it. if the cops took the criminals, and left the others alone, no problem. they went after almost everyone, in direct violation of their rights. your rewrite of history, only fools you.

    Ole Miss students, to my knowledge, have not defended murderers and rapists the way OWS leaders did when the crimes came to their attention. So numbers be damned...it's about the leaders.

    BTW, Ole Miss is the most hospitable campus in the US. During football games, they ladle out ice cold lemonaid to all the fans, including visitors. There may be other campuses doing likewise, but I'm not aware of any.

    That is correct. Filth Media did not cover a single negative aspect of OWS protests. Doing so would interfere with their "Tea Partiers are terrorists" narrative for which you and your ilk never demanded a single iota of evidence.

    Is that the only retort you one-trick-ponies have? Ok, tell me why you said that.
    Tell the world why you are sure that to me, a person you've never met, "all black people are evil, all hispanics, all muslims, and anyone else that's "not [me]".

    Is that what they teach you to say at Democrat school? It must be, because you all say the same thing.
  • Raymond... User De... 2012/11/12 20:17:47
    Raymond Allamby
    we say the same thing, because we see the same thing from you. you just displayed it in your earlier reply. let's blame everyone in the OWS, for the actions of some criminals the took advantage of the situation. is the sky orange in your fantasy world?
  • User De... Raymond... 2012/11/12 20:27:31

    I didn't say blame everyone in the OWS, I said the OWS is the sum of its parts. The OWS is responsible for the deaths and murders and thefts that occurred, because it held a function and failed to provide protection for its members. It also attracted, by its very nature, those more inclined to commit such acts.

    Sweet! I thought you were calling me a racist or something. Sorry if you weren't. It happens so often my mind automatically went there. Although you did point out differing races, not differing ideals.....

    Sky's blue here where I live, what color is it there?
  • Raymond... User De... 2012/11/12 20:57:58

    much the same thing. if, in your mind, the criminals are part of it, then they are all criminals by association. next time, you should go down and perform a criminal background check, on all who join. that way you save the world.
