The League of the South and the International Keystone Knights of the Ku Klux Klan joined forces yesterday for an impromptu protest on the campus of Ole Miss. According to news reports, both groups were run out not long after showing up. The League was represented by a single LOSer, Jeremy Walls, a tattoo artist from Guntown, Mississippi. The Klan members were led by Shaun Winkler of Holly Springs, Mississippi.

"JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — An integrated group of at least 200 students and faculty members rallied Friday at the University of Mississippi in Oxford, urging the Ole Miss administration to stop flying the state flag that includes the Confederate battle emblem.
About a dozen Confederate flag supporters showed up at the end of the rally, and photos show some wore T-shirts with the logo of an Arkansas-based Ku Klux Klan group, the International Keystone Knights.
Shouting broke out between the two sides, but there was no violence, said Allen Coon of Petal, Mississippi, a white Ole Miss student who wants to remove the flag.
"We made sure that it remained peaceful," said Coon, 20, an Associated Student Body senator who is sponsoring a take-down-the-flag resolution that the student government will debate next week.
The Mississippi flag and other Old South symbols have come under increased scrutiny since mid-June, when nine black worshippers were massacred at a church in South Carolina. Police say the killings were racially motivated, and the suspect had posed for photos holding the Confederate battle flag."

This is not the first time the League of the South has rallied with Klansmen. Several Ku Klux Klan members or sympathizers are also members of a closed Facebook group for the League of the South including Billy Roper, Daniel Wilson, Bryan Bryant and Tom Pierce.

Walls invited some of his good friends in the International Keystone Knights of the Ku Klux Klan to come join in all of the fun. In turn, Shaun Winkler invited some friends of his own.

In all, between 6-12 Ku Klux Klansmen reportedly made an appearance.

KSL adds:


"The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, identifies League of the South as a "neo-secessionist" or "neo-Confederate" group, said Mark Potok, director of the center's intelligence project.
"They think that the south should secede again in order to create a country that will be ruled by Anglo-Celts which are white people," Potok said Friday. "They are against interracial relationships or marriages of any kind.""

AL.com is reporting:


"The Ole Miss NAACP chapter organized a gathering on campus Friday afternoon to lobby student government leaders to remove the Mississippi state flag, which contains the Confederate battle emblem, from the campus.
But six people from the KKK group arrived on campus during the NAACP gathering. The groups verbally confronted each other while police stood nearby, according to The Daily Mississippian, the school's student newspaper.
The University of Mississippi police department maintained peace, and the KKK group was escorted off campus a few minutes after arrival. No violence was reported. 
After the protest ended, the University of Mississippi released a statement, commending students for their efforts:
"As a state institution we fly the flags representing our state and nation. However, as a university committed to fostering a welcoming and inclusive campus for all students, we continue to join other leaders in Mississippi to encourage our government to change the state flag.""

coming, presumably directed at hate group opposition (which is pretty much the entire world)

We are awaiting Connie Chastain's frantic defense and excuse making for the hate groups, after all, they were just standing up for Confederate Heritage, right?

Can't wait to see Connie try to thread this needle.






Restoring the honor!

  1. I've posted this link before. Did you read it? What is there about it you don't understand? Or are you lying just to hear yourself lie? You get more clownish all the time. Like the SPLC, you're turning into a parody of yourself.
