'Riots' brew on Ole Miss campus (Obama Signs Being Torched)
WMCTV ^ | 11/7/2012

(WMC-TV) – Reports are coming in that riots are brewing on the Ole Miss campus in Oxford, Mississippi.

Phone calls are coming into our newsroom and photos are being posted to Twitter of the situation on campus.

The Ole Miss campus television station is reporting the alleged "riots" are instead protests.

Photos show huge group of people on the campus, some even lighting Obama-Biden signs on fire in response to the presidential election results.

Ole Miss journalism student Margaret Ann Morgan posted to Twitter, "Onlookers say people- black, white, etc- throwing rocks at cars."

She continued, "Students of all races yelling on rebel drive. Lots of racial slurs."

Morgan also mentioned she is ashamed at what she saw and heard on her campus following the election.

Nicholas Carr claims no rocks were thrown and the majority of the people at the protests were there to see what was going on.

"I was there the whole time. No rocks were thrown. There was 1 sign lit on fire. For about 45 seconds," Carr said. "Mostly, it was 100s of college kids who heard the word riot and ran to take pictures and see what it was about. Again, no rocks or missiles thrown."

Action News 5 has a crew on the way to Oxford. Keep checking with WMCTV.COM for updates.

the media did not do their job, they neevr reproted on the facts or the issues and we got dumb stupid lazy handout folks who just sat there, watched their evening news and thought it was the truth.

The media is to blame here and no on else.
Blacks will always vote for blacks we all know that, many Hispanics will vote on immigration and we know that.
Aks a black person if they want homosexual amrriage and be taught in school and they will say no but they vote for the non white guy which will now push his homosexual views on us.

I;m sick of the media not doing their job, Sandy, Libya, fast and furious, border agent,

“I have to agree with you. Spoke with one coworker who voted for OB and he was spouting the rich are too rich nonsense.”

There are not enough “rich” to pay for all the goodies. Now the rich will take their money and go. That Leaves the middle class to take the beating from the marxists.

Damn these obot morons to hell.

Now we have politicians like those two Democrat Castro brothers smugly telling us that if Republicans don’t “listen” to Latino “needs” (amnesty, open borders, etc.); then to heck with us. - You had better believe Mexico controls its borders. I feel sorry for Jan Brewer now. . .

Secession or mass boycott of paying income taxes. Starve the entitlement slugs.

We not not with each other, look at the states and then tell me how the south and parts of the midwest is with this pro homo, pro illegal, welfare handout President.

Now the man has 4 years to get in our face and force his socialism whilst these idiots who have even never heard of Libya let alone know about a border agent being killed will jump up and down like the kdis they are and the country goes into more det.

i woke up this morning and saw all my kids and thought what on earth have the media and the ignorant layabouts done.

If the north wants their socialism ten they can piss off and leave us alone down here, they can have their new country , their new utopia as I want nothing to do with it and I;d be happy if they did.

none of these the blacks want but they voted for it because he;s not white

We need a great, bloody battle civil war, if we ever hope to regain our country.

Only one problem with that solution, the other nations of the world will not sit still while the fighting goes on in our streets. I have no solutions, FRiend, but know if our nation goes down this road, yes it will be over.

You're onto something big. I predict that at some time in the distant future, in the next 150 years at most, the United States will decide to break up into at least three separate nations connected mainly by a common language and a military alliance. Obama's presidency and specifically the dreadfully arrogant Obamacare law may well turn out to be the starting point for serious discussion about splitting up the United States. The problem we have now is that the conservative areas of the US, the states that Romney won tonight, have nothing much in common with the liberal states on the west coast and in the northeast. Worse than that, the liberal states and their crooked politicians refuse to leave us alone and instead are pushing their horrible socialist policies into our states through the force of federal law, federal courts, and a federal police force (if the courts can't intimidate us). I want absolutely no involvement in the Obamacare law--I want my health insurance policy to stay just the way it was in 2008, and yet crooked democRAT politicians who I despise are forcing me into their screwed-up Obamacare system. I'm out here in the Mountain time zone, and I want out of their socialist system now and forever.

This situation is becoming increasingly intolerable for the conservative states, mainly in the South, Southwest, Great Plains, and the Rocky Mountain region. Eventually the people in this conservative region are going to demand the right to form a new country that isn't under the brutal control of Washington and all the crooked liberal politicians who run that town. Eventually there will be an economic and legal cold war between the conservative states and the liberal states on the coasts, which can only be solved by breaking up the US into at least three countries: the Eastern States, the Conservative States, and the Pacific States along the west coast. Florida could end up either in the Eastern States or the Conservative States ( could end up geographically separated from the other Eastern States as Alaska is separated from the US today). That break-up is likely to happen before the end of this century. It's going to be the only real solution to a raging economic and legal cold war between the conservative people in flyover country and the socialists on the west coast and in the Northeast.

Australia would have been a good choice. I love the place. Unfortunately they are in the same boat.

Your analysis is correct. Maybe five years behind us at most ten years behind us, if five years is a statement of too far, ten years doubtful. The Australians have held up well to a point. Am getting reports though of things, in Australia, had rather not discuss. May the reports be wrong.

Most people don’t even know who Tyrone Woods is, or much care.

If a REPUB had been President though, he would be cannonized by the National Media as a hero. But, since the Magic Messiah is President, you must be CRAZY for noting such an inconvenient truth.

the south and the part of the midwest should form ur new country, i am so pissed off wiht illegals, third world immigrants who want to make this country look like a third world country.
Blacks voting because they see color and that is the only reason, and because they are racist and the media who cannot do their job

The only way we will ever win now is to give freebies to certain groups.
Look at the polls, most say economy and the country is on the wrong track but they vote for obama?!!!

Honestly we need to get a new way to vote maybe ask questions so people know what they are voting for. instead right now we have so many handouts, layabouts welfare, only see color and are too stupid to know when AD’s lie.

This ahole is not my president. I will not listen to the leftist media, I will continue to get my info from conservative sources and will continue to remain united with conservative organizations.

What the hell happened to us...I've heard many explanations and I want the truth. What about the absentee votes? Did the military get out their votes? I just heard this AM that the white vote did not turn out in numbers to elect Romney...the numbers reflect this. Evangelicals did not turn out to vote for Romney. We need to reflect on what just happened and WHY.

My daughter was out rioting at her campus last night, to see what it was like. The groups she got in (she did it twice) were just marching and chanting. She heard another group got into the library and trashed it, not sure what liberals have against books, but whatever.

These weren’t anti-Obama protests. These were the kids who, seeing they have no future, wanted to matter, and the OFA people spent months registering them on campus, and then bussing them to polling places, helping them with absentee ballots. It’s easy because all the voters are in one place, and now they are all happy they “made a difference”.

I got the feeling for a lot of them it was more like backing the winning football team than actually making decisions that effect their lives. They didn’t know anything about how the world worked. The did understand that they like gay marriage, think sex is great so contraceptives are good and abortion is necessary, and that’s why they voted for Obama. Plus, for kids he was still cool — apparently the “first time” video wasn’t rediculous as we thought, but was a deal-maker for college kids who weren’t otherwise motivated.

That’s why it will be good to see civil strife in cities when food and energy prices explode. At least the tyrannical government will be forced to deploy most of their resources dealing with the welfare mobs.
And these dirtballs will react badly when the SHTF. I had one welfare dirtbag in my office who wanted to be seen, but couldn’t use her insurance because it wasn’t loaded in the system. The staff told her that if she wanted to be seen today, she would have to self pay. This scum came back five times and hassled my staff to check on her insurance status.
