Controversy at the University of Mississippi: More Threats

You’ll recall that the Mid-South Flaggers made much of their march on Oxford, Mississippi, a few weeks ago … and then they made much of the fact that they didn’t like the company they kept. Fair enough.

But this exchange on their Facebook page should remind us that the Mid-South Flaggers are no angels, either.

Old Miss Violence

Apparently the Mid-South Flaggers want to voice their own opinion but shut down those who disagree (which is fairly typical for the Confederate heritage movement, by the way). And as for threats of violence? Read the last comment.

We can now expect the usual calls to university officials demanding that a faculty member be silenced.

    Yes, that is a major part of their pathology. Respect their version of heritage and their free speech but don’t you damned dare to have either of your own!

    OMG! The last comment is particularly vile and cruelly insensitive to the family of the murdered journalist.

      Yes, but it’s not surprising to me that they don’t understand this. They have no respect for those who serve as journalists.

    One of the first things done in fascism is to attack academia. Academia is one of the most threatening elements to propaganda and manipulative misinformation.

    Remember, there can be no threats to their ideas. Their use of language is a strong indicator of their belief system. Their choice to use violence also reveals their intelligence level. For them, the simpler the idea, the easier it is to embrace it. This also explains why their flagging is feeble and their ideas are going into the dustbin of history. They only appeal to the lowest common denominator which for all the rhetoric out there, a minority of Americans.

      At the same time, they (and Mike Huckabee) are in an angry tither that an ESPN commentator suggested that interpersonal violence is a long-standing component of southern culture. These folks have the righteousness of Charlton Heston and the self-awareness of a goldfish.
