Welcome to (almost) “Free Mississippi”

Lots of kids showed up with Mississippi state flags for last Saturday’s football game at the University of Mississippi–and had them confiscated by campus police…along with signs declaring ‘Let The Band Play Dixie’…(they) were threatened with arrest…(However, there was) one positive event –a whole batch of students got together and unfurled a 20′ by 30’ Mississippi state flag in the student section.

And I watched that game on the one-eyed lobotomy box and did not see even a hint that any such thing was going on–MSM censorship at its most subtle and finest. — jtl, 419

Welcome to (almost, but not quite) free Mississippi, where your state flag is not welcome on college campuses and where you can be threatened with arrest if you dare to carry it on campus. The folks that run many of these colleges and universities, not only in Mississippi but in other parts of the country as well are cultural Marxists, which means, in plain language that they are often the “nice” Marxists. They won’t cut your throat but they will try to steal your kids’ heritage from them. And if they happen to work at a state college then you are paying them to do this with your tax money. Comforting thought isn’t it?

So the state flag is no longer welcome at Ole Miss and other places in Mississippi as well. But the people that run many of these centers of “education” would be more than willing to have Communist flags on campus, or flags representing the black liberation movement or the transgender movement. This, they believe, would demonstrate their penchant for “diversity” or multi-culturalism or whatever they are calling their particular brand of prejudice nowadays. I’m sure that when folks start to catch on they will change the names again.

I remember, years ago now, a school I knew about on the East Coast (the original Left Coast) brought in an identified Communist to teach the kids committed to their charge how to do “community organizing.” When a local pastor called them on that they told him “We like to expose our students to all different viewpoints.” Of course having someone from the John Birch Society in to lecture the students would never, and I mean never, have occurred to them. They wanted to be diverse but not THAT diverse!

Same situation in Mississippi. The educational elders in many of these schools welcome diversity, as long as it is a diversity from the left. The right is not worth mentioning–and they don’t, anymore than they are forced to except to scream about how those on the right are all “racist, sexist, homophobes, Islamaphobes, and “deplorables.” Sound familiar? The erstwhile candidate that is running (maybe not as fast as she used to) on the Democratic ticket could have taken her speech about us deplorables from most any college president in the country. But it gives you a really good view of what these folks thinks of us ordinary folks, and it ain’t much, but then you already knew that.

So the kids at the University of Mississippi are free to go to the football games as long as they don’t take their state flag in with them or as long as they don’t bring in a sign requesting that the band play Dixie. The kids could walk in with almost anything else and it wouldn’t be nearly as reprehensible as these two items. You have to know that your world has really been turned upside down when your state flag is banned on campus. The Communist Hammer & Sickle would be welcomed but the Mississippi state flag is not. If you are paying attention at all this has to tell you something, and if you’re not paying attention then maybe you should be.

Lots of kids showed up with Mississippi state flags for last Saturday’s football game at the University of Mississippi–and had them confiscated by campus police. According to an article on http://dailycaller.comStudents who had their flags taken away by police–along with signs declaring ‘Let The Band Play Dixie’–said they were threatened with arrest if they did not give them up.” So at the University of Mississippi you can be arrested for displaying your state flag. I tell you, folks, that’s real progress, a sign of true “liberty” but for who? Certainly not for ordinary Mississippians. How long will it be before flying your state flag on your own property will be forbidden? Don’t laugh–it’s not as far fetched as it sounds. And if the folks in Mississippi don’t stand up and resist this damn-foolishness it may well come to that.

I noted one positive event at the university’s football game last week–a whole batch of students got together and unfurled a 20′ by 30′ Mississippi state flag in the student section. Someone sent me a photo of it on Facebook and it had to have caught someone’s attention as big as it was, but it also showed that those students who held it up there for everyone to see must still have had some pride in and thankfulness for their state flag and its heritage. I don’t know if the police eventually confiscated this one or if someone managed to sneak it out wrapped in their jacket or not but it was good to see the picture. It showed that, at some level, not quite all the students had bought into this cultural Marxism that is so cloyingly present on so many campuses, even in the South. With the Lord’s help and guidance there may yet be hope, but the battle is far from over and far from won. And those who want to preserve their heritage, faith, and culture need to learn to “keep the skeer on” because you can bet our adversaries plan on doing that.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II (The Economics of Liberty)The Essence of Liberty Volume II: The Economics of Liberty Volume II will introduce the reader to the fundamental principles of the Austrian School of Economics. The Austrian School traces its origins back to the Scholastics of Medieval Spain. But its lineage actually began with Carl Menger and continued on through Adam Smith, Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard and many others. It is the one and only true private property based, free market line of economic thought. Available in both paperback and Kindle versions.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
