Election protest at Ole Miss escalates, 2 arrested

By HOLBROOK MOHR | Associated Press – 11 mins ago

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A protest at the University of Mississippi against the re-election of President Barack Obama grew into a crowd of about 400 students with shouted racial slurs as rumors of a riot spread on social media.

Two arrests were reported. University officials say there were no injuries or property damage Tuesday night.

A university spokesman says the gathering began after midnight with 30 to 40 students protesting Obama's re-election but quickly grew. Rumors exploded on Twitter after student journalists posted a video calling the gathering a riot.

Chancellor Dan Jones condemned the disturbance, saying most students and faculty are "ashamed" of the actions of a few.

The incident comes a little more than 50 years after violent riots over the enrollment of James Meredith, the university's first black student.

Trump’s Twitter rant after Obama win: ‘We should march on Washington and stop this’

By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 14 hrs ago

Trump made an offer Obama could refuse. (YouTube) Donald Trump, the impossibly coiffed real estate mogul and de facto leader of the "birther" movement, had something of a Twitter meltdown in the wake of President Barack Obama's projected victory in Tuesday's election.

"Well, back to the drawing board!" Trump tweeted shortly after several networks, including Fox News, called Ohio in the president's favor, sealing the win. "We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!" Trump—who last month offered $5 million to a charity of Obama's choice in exchange for the release of the commander in chief's college records and passport application—continued his post-election rant in 140-character chunks:

Let's fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.

This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy! Our nation is a once great nation divided!

Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble...like never before.

The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy.

"Barack Obama is the least transparent president in the history of this country," Trump said in a widely mocked October video shot from his New York office and uploaded to YouTube. "I'm very honored to have gotten him to release his long-form birth certificate or whatever it may be."

President Obama was unfazed. On "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," Obama joked to Leno that the bad blood between him and the "Celebrity Apprentice" star "dates back to when we were growing up together in Kenya."

It appears the president saved his best zinger for Trump for Election Day.

Its racist, but it is the Randroid's Anti-Democracy mindset too, as in Trump's reaction to "march on Washington" when the majority votes differently than he wanted. The Trilateral Commission has a quote like that -

Quote: 1975 Report for the Trilateral Commission The Crisis of Democracy: On the Governability of Democracies - "The report observed the political state of the United States, Europe and Japan and says that in the United States the problems of governance "stem from an excess of democracy" and thus advocates "to restore the prestige and authority of central government institutions."

Racism is hilarious.

Being from the New England states myself, I see it everyday.

What is more funnier than a person who chokes the life and breath out of another human being by his own hands with his own hatred, then falls off the very pedestal he has created for himself with the same rope of disdain wrapped around his own neck? It's called Karma.

How funny is it that people don't believe in Karma, but will believe they are gods chosen?

I would say that this is fairly true; Obama won by a very small margin of the popular vote but he was way ahead in electoral votes as a result or racial polarization in places like CA; a very disturbing trend.

You find racism funny?

[-] 2 points by LeoYo (5763) 1 year ago

I find racism funny to the point that I find the mindset of racists funny.

[-] -1 points by Brython (-146) 1 year ago

It's only funny In America. In the rest of the world racism is a rather gory subject. And it always has been.

[-] 1 points by ArnolfoAsako (25) from Salem, NJ 1 year ago

From what I know of American history....it's been bloody gory from the onset here as well. Shall I go into the stories of the thirteen colonies and even before?

It is funny...Americans....and I have traveled overseas, seem to be the only country that wants to believe they did no evil, or still harbor any racial hatred towards others. This is comparable to justifiable genocide ideologies, somewhat like Nazi Germany, is it not? Why is that I wonder? Are people afraid to face the truth? I'm just saying.

[-] -1 points by Brython (-146) 1 year ago

You should probably go into the history of our 13 colonies, yes.

I'm not afraid to face the truth: very few of my ancestors owned African slaves (because it was not as economically popular in New England); from 1675 onwards they killed Native Americans by the score - they dedicated at least one entire generation to this - and - I am a racist.

But even so, our racism here has never been as openly bloody as it has in other parts of the world.

What's also interesting in all of this is how complete the subjugation in places like CA or FL or South America at the hands of the Spanish; the entire continent speaks Spanish - how complete the brutality. They were lopping off heads, gutting people where they stood, torturing them. The Spanish were brutal - our hispanics to this day are an intermediate culture - but this is rarely discussed here.

Of course, hundreds of native Amercan's were shipped out of Massachusetts as slaves, while some were retained there. Ironically some blacks and some native Americans lived free, albiet with fewer rights.

If that sense of history makes you feel better, then who am I to dispute what you hold as true..right?

[-] 0 points by Brython (-146) 1 year ago

It's absolutely true - history is what I do.

I'm happy that you are an expert. Perhaps you can help those whose families (or so they believe they did) suffered atrocities here, across the great plains and in the South get a better perspective on what truly took place.
Then, maybe we can heal the hurt and anger that prevails in this society. We all need to know the truth. Perhaps we can start here... http://www.studymode.com/subjects/slavery-in-the-thirteen-colonies-page1.html and move to here....

Paris Peace Treaty 1783 Article 7:

"There shall be a firm and perpetual peace between his Brittanic Majesty and the said states, and between the subjects of the one and the citizens of the other, wherefore all hostilities both by sea and land shall from henceforth cease. All prisoners on both sides shall be set at liberty, and his Brittanic Majesty shall with all convenient speed, and without causing any destruction, or carrying away any Negroes or other property of the American inhabitants," http://www.let.rug.nl/usa/documents/1776-1785/paris-peace-treaty-1783.php I'm just saying.

Can they be arrested for being racist? Is that a law.?

If not can we get their names and post it on line? Massive old time town square humiliation.

That is allowed right?

[-] -1 points by Brython (-146) 1 year ago

Racism and misandry were the tools of this election.

[-] 1 points by ArnolfoAsako (25) from Salem, NJ 1 year ago

And the foundations of this country against those who were of a darker hue.

I'm just saying.

So, what do you have against women. Aren't they the ones who brought you into the world?
