The AP reports:

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.

I’ve heard from two people who saw the proceedings who said the rally was actually ended by law enforcement, with the KKK forcibly removed from campus. No word yet if that is true and if so, why the *protest* was cut short.

The KKK originally announced earlier this week that it would rally from 10am to 11pm on the Ole Miss campus.

Oh Hell Nah: KKK Planning Rally @ Ole Miss Game

LSU’s student paper, THE DAILY REVEILLE, reports the Ku Klux Klan will stage a university-approved protest on the Ole Miss campus Saturday from 10am to 11pm. The Rebels host LSU in a football game at 3:30 ET.

KKK To Protest At Ole Miss-LSU Game

Shane Tate, the North Mississippi great titan for the Mississippi White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, confirmed via e-mail the KKK will rally on Ole Miss’ campus in protest of the Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones’ decision to remove “From Dixie with Love” from the Ole Miss band’s song selection.

From Dixie with Love is the song that contains the lyric, “the South will rise again.

More from KKK member Tate:

We aren’t coming there to cause problems or cause trouble. Trouble has already been caused by a handful at Ole Miss, including the black student body president, who wants to shape Ole Miss into yet another liberal sodomite college.

Now for the scary part: the university is cool with the display.*

Should Ole Miss have approved KKK protest on campus?
