About a dozen hooded Ku Klux Klan members rallied briefly at the University of Mississippi before Saturday’s football game with No. 10 LSU.

The members of the Mississippi White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan spent about 10 minutes waving flags, displaying Nazi-style salutes and occasionally gesturing at a group of about 250 hecklers that included young children. They were protesting the school’s decision to drop a pep song that included “Dixie.”

Some fans had been ending the song by chanting, “The South will rise again.” Chancellor Dan Jones asked the band to stop playing the song after fans ignored a request to drop the chant.

The Klan said it was protesting over lost Southern symbolism at Ole Miss, which has been rocked by racial strife before.

Twelve clucks, I mean, 12 dummies, no make that 12 knuckleheads who showed up to make asses of themselves. Well, I guess the rest of their members are too ashamed or gutless to appear in public and make useless spectacles of themselves.

The Klan.

Still the same as it ever was…………useless, pathetic entities that take up precious space and breath air that more decent people have a right to.

“Some fans had been ending the song by chanting, “The South will rise again.”
The South will rise when a majority of its residents cease living in the vicious past.
Until then, the South will get no higher or further until it is willing to learn to come to terms with its hated past and come out of the dark ages of racial hatred into the light of respect for human dignity.
