University Of Mississippi Students Rioted After Barack Obama Was Elected!

| Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaYouTube

Not everyone was happy to hear that America had voted Barack Obama back into the Oval Office.

Students at the University of Mississippi, more fondly referred to as Ole Miss, took to the streets last night to demonstrate their anger over the Republican loss.

Sources covering the event said 300 to 400 students protested on campus by lighting Obama-Biden signs on fire, throwing rocks at cars and yelling racial slurs, which nearly lead to police using pepper spray in some instances.

While it's being labeled a riot, raw video (above) makes it seem more like a bunch of drunk kids flooding the streets because they had nothing better to do.

There's some cursing, lots of yelling and police sirens flashing in the distance, but nothing that could compare to the infamous 1962 riot at the university when James Meredith became the first African American student to be admitted.

That qualifies as hope and change, right?

    Lol only American's think that Romney would be good for president.
    I think everyone around the world is more educated on American politics then American's.
    Romney is a piece of sexist dumb ass shit who deserved to lose.
    Stupid college students, educate yourself dumbasses.

    The racism of yesteryear has come full circle in our county. The entire world embraced our choice of a black President four years ago and most nations of the world still support him. The fringe elements of Republican sect have crept through into the mainstream once again with conservative mouthpieces planting the seeds of hate. The only doubt lies here at home rooting from bigotry. Watch the white hands paint Obama in Blackface at

    This is hilarious because though I think Mitt would have done something about the economy other than socialize it but if there was a state that needed welfare and socialization it is Miss. Dear Lord don't you realize Romney would have cut your states funding to the bone….lololololools Miss & Ala exist because of federal funding….this isn't opinion it is simply fact. Look up public and federal funding, welfare rates before you complain.

    The riot mentality has come to America. It is the Chicago Sal Alinsky way, or what Barack Obama knows this from Chicago. You divide people by groups (African-Americans, GLBT, Women and Hispanics). Then, you get everyone angry and tell them that everyone is giving them a bad deal. Then, you tell them that the rich people need to pay more and that the government is going to take from the rich and give to you. Then, you get them hooked on entitlements that the country pays for. Then, they riot against anyone that doesn't provide those as our government is in debt to China. This is our country now. Obama has created a dependency society complete with more rioting and racial hate to keep himself in power.

    It was not a riot..it was a protest with a couple of dumbasses in the mix.There are always a few dumbasses in every crowd..its doesn't just happen in Mississippi. Some people are making a big deal out of this because it was at Ole Miss. The cops were called..they told everyone to leave..and they did..I know this for a fact.
    It was a stupid protest..but at least no matter what you believe,there is still free speech and a right to protest,even if it is stupid.

    Racism is alive and rioting. Amazing how many 'closet' racists came out thanks to the endorsement of the Republican party and pundits. dumbasses. Go back to class, idiots. What is their entrance exam at Ole Miss. anyway? I'm guessing a good old game of Hangman.

    Not all of us agree with what happen last night. This incident does not represent the University of Mississippi.

    I attend Ole Miss and this is not what our campus is known for. This was a bunch of drunk freshman acting out of line. It is completely disrespectful to label our campus as racist. Yes, Mississippi was but Mississippi is…

    For the world's information, tonight a candlelight vigil was held on the campus of Ole Miss in response to the drunken mess of election night. I feel if ignorance is recognised then so should the positive be recognised!

    I'm not a fan of the Occupy movement, but you have got to be fucking kidding me…the students/protesters at UC Davis were relentlessly pepper sprayed earlier this year, but these fools weren't!? They "almost" had to be pepper sprayed!? REALLY?! I don't care if you're upset about who won, act with a tiny bit of respect and appropriate decorum.

    if this had been roles reversed, black freshman college kids rioting and acting out in response to a Mitt Romney victory, you better believe pepper spray WOULD have DEFINITELY been used. wtf

    Hey, I'm from Mississippi, live here still, and don't care if the president is black or not and I am ashamed at the rioting, but race A) does not make him right for the job so let's drop that, and B) The ONLY reason I went republican was for Ron Paul. Mitt Romney lost because frankly he treated Ron Paul awfully, as did the RNC, and Ron Paul had HUGE numbers over Mitt Romney. So, for those who said "anyone but Obama", how'd that Mitt vote work out for you?

    NO, these college students were NOT the only people pissed that this POS has been reelected - make that close to 60,000,000 people.

    Enjoy your high unemployment and welfare, leeches. Cheers!

    As an proud Ole Miss student, I can honestly say that there were faults on both sides. It was really a bunch of stupid freshmen trying to look upset and politically active when really half of them probably couldn't recite a democratic or republican platform. This was hardly a riot.

    After being on campus during this "riot", there were at most fifty on the campus actually arguing. The mass of people you see are just bystanders looking onto the commotion. It was not only Romney supporters yelling and causing commotion. Obama supporters were just as involved. An entire campus should not be judged by a group of idiots that happen to attend our school.

    This is such a joke. Mitt would only have cut taxes for those who are already wealthy. The effect of his "tax plan" would have been an increase for the majority of Americans (verified by a bi-partisan Congressional committee). He would have gutted the state that the school is domiciled in - Mississippi. I hope those idiots (who have just successfully wasted a lot of taxpayers money) with their antics are permanently expelled from the University and leave with a criminal record to show for their stupidity.

    It's sad to see people assume that all Ole Miss students and former students agree with these "riots" This is not the only site that I have read hateful comments towards Ole Miss. As a graduate of Ole Miss, this school gave me some of the most positive and supportive years of my life. Its sad to see a bunch of stupid freshmen show the school in a negative light.

    I Loves me some Obama, but I do know black people who voted Romney or not at all because they blieved in neither. Obama won because of the Latinos. They black votes were steady but the Latino votes were off the charts. The white votes were less this term. I'm thinking it's because they know the facts and don't believe in Romney and they don't like what Obama has done. I'm glad the big O won. But if the republicans had a stronger canidate with a clear view of the future, who knows.

    Re: trinigirl123 – Honestly I think the issue with the Republican party is that they have lost touch with many Americans and what is important to the electorate at large. I think that a steady dose of "tax cuts" will fix everything is what is killing the viability of the party on a national stage. The demographics in America have shifted in a way that the party heads don't know how to deal with. The party simply needs new leadership and frankly to move more towards the center. This year they were more extreme than before and aside from creating a record quarter for the advertising industry what was accomplished? Any timethe only way a candidate can win is if people don't turn out to vote then there is a big problem.

    As an Ole Miss student, half of this story isn't even being told. Students went to use their freedom of speech/assembly and peacefully protest their REPUBLICAN (not white) candidate not being chosen. When some African Americans caught wind of this, they turned it into a race issue, assuming that the protesters were upset that a black man was re-elected. Rocks were never thrown at cars, either. The media uses the image of past racism at Ole Miss to project these protests as racial fueled. This was not a matter of race, this was a matter of a school full of proud, conservative students. As a conservative myself, I was upset Romney was not elected. If Romney was of a different race, would I feel differently? No. This was not about race, it was about political stance. Get it right, first and last time I ever come to this god-forsaken website.
