The Caliphate of Mississippi?

A Gulf Coast resident warns Sun-Herald  readers of an impending peril in a letter to the editor:


The Harrison County School District web site is available in four languages: English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Arabic.

Why is it available in Arabic?

How many kids do they have whose primary language is Arabic? How much money did the school district pay to put up an entire fourth web site in Arabic?

I have been in Harrison County for 30 years and I have met two speakers of Arabic, both over the age of 40 and both of whom spoke and read English just fine.

Someone explain this to me.

Does this mean Mississippi is next in the path of Muslim conquest?

Ms. Brossett clearly has no concept of how websites work.

There is quite a large muslim encampment in Lamar County. Many, especially the children, rarely leave. Lord knows what those kids are being taught.

I read a study on Forbes (I think) not to long ago that explained that the second generation muslim immigrants are more dangerous than the first generation immigrants.

I'll admit no concept of how websites work. Please somebody clue me in, because I am inclined to agree with her, to the extent tax dollars were spent.

Yes. Mississippi is next and will become a Muslim state in just a few years. We should all be scared to death and gnash our teeth and demonstrate extreme hate and fear because we have a black man who is president and the Thad Cochran Republicans are communists in disguise and all is, frankly, lost. We have no hope and must write and read silly crap on the Internet because we aren't capable of independent thought anymore. What we need most of all is to proclaim the Bible as the state book. That will prove once and for all that the Tea Party and the KKK were right all along.

Permit me to doubt that's she's really all that okay with its being in Spanish or Vietnamese, either.

Actually, I think the Muslin population of which you speak is in Marion County

Okay, then. I'll tell you.

Schools are required to post parental notices in languages that parents can read. In fact, there are over 100 kids (of the 15,000) in Harrison County who are considered Limited English Proficiency (LEP) students. Several of them speak Arabic. Those are the kids who are LEP... that means kids who aren't fully conversational in English... there are even more who know English but their parents aren't -- that don't fall into that category.

Schools have ELL programs that have tutors to teach kids english from their native tongue. They, most likely, translated this document for an additional net cost to taxpayers of... $0.

People in this country speak a lot of languages. It's important when their kids go to school that the district can communicate with them.

Find a new witch. Not much of a hunt here.

I seen one of them Muslin fellers at the public library down there in Pass Christian, and he was just a scripplin' and a scrawlin' on some sorta parchment. Well, I got a little closer to see what he was a writin', and damned if I couldn't understand nary a word of it! Them letters he was scratchin' looked like he took good Christian letters and stretched em out and dislodged em and perverted em, and get this -- the feller was writin' backwards! Now you tell me, do you want them kinds of people down there twisting and perverting our own alphabet on our own Gulf Coast? I for one don't!

Apparently many "smart people" who frequent this here weblog struggle to account for sarcasm and react accordingly. 3:45 clearly introduced himself as "Al Gore" a/k/a the Inventor of the Internet. Certainly the Inventor of the Internet would never admit to "... no concept of how websites work ...."

Well...
Let's do leave all information and communication with those in our country whose primary language is Arabic up to ISIS and Al Quaeda!

I'll bet every terrorist group can translate " xenophobia" into many languages including English!

After all, our prejudice and belligerence can't possibly help recruit homegrown terrorists, can it?

We all adore those who don't care about us at all, right?

God save us from ourselves!

Well Hell yeah it does!

You liberal types won't be laughing when the Islamist come for you. And they are coming, I pray some of you wake up before the trucks are in your driveway.

The military actively recruits people who can speak Arabic as translators. Is the United States seemed forces letting Ayrab Moslem Terrists in?!

6:56 I pray that you keep your bass ackwards comments to yourself as you live out your days in your basement. I also pray that the only truck in your driveway is the local hospital coming to take you to the nearest mental health facility.

New Medinah is located near Sumrall (Lamar County) but I think the community is primarily situated on land in Marion County.

Google "New Medinah Mississippi" and you will find quite a bit of information about this Muslim community.

wow, I knew we had a Buddhist enclave here, but I had no idea about 11 kids at the scary looking 'new medina' school. Very scary.
( let it be known that we are officially bastions of multiculturalism).

In regards to the original post, I think she wants someone to bean count how much specifically the Arabic translated page costs to be attached to the school's domain. Someone just take the generalized cost of the site, divide it by 4, and hand her a number.

She'll wig if it's ten million or 20 cents.
Just sayin.

With Robert E. Lee's birthday coming up on Monday, Selma being released and February being the month all the networks go into pander overload to black folk, I wonder if we might someday have a Republik of New Afrikka in the region.

6:56 pm I'm far more worried about YOUR truck showing up in my driveway!

You are like the gullible Germans who fell for Goebbels's propaganda! And, the atmosphere you help create with your fear mongering is exactly what happened in Germany! The difference is that Jews and Communists were Goebbels' boogeymen!

If you are not gullible, then what you want is what Goebbel's wanted, power and control and a political takeover of this Nation! And, you will end up liking that as much as they did!

Terrorism is a real and serious problem and yes, since I refuse to help them by living in fear, I could be a victim. But, I could be a victim to any murderous bastards we have that aren't jihadists as well. I will not let any bastards rob me of joy in my life!

You have helped turn " the threat of an external enemy" ( please, if you read, look up the psychological implications of that) into a partisan issue when it should be a uniting issue!

You are helping the terrorists by helping them create fear, but more importantly , your method in doing that, is conceding to them a legitimate political and religious point of view! They don't have one. They are murderous and deranged bastards led by those seeking power and control. They are psychotic or deluded pawns or criminals who are not accepted in their societies.

You are helping the terrorists by contributing to the lack of unity our Nation by airing your baseless opinions, not checking the validity of your sources and negating the ability for those who actually know what they are talking about help us strengthen our position! You are crowding out the platform of political debate so they can't be heard anymore than those who warned of Nazism in Germany could get heard!

You are helping terrorist recruit young Muslims in this country by making it harder for us to win them to our side ! You don't follow and aren't influenced by those who think you scum just because of your race or religion!

Under what theory, pray tell will prejudice help ???? What outcome do you reasonably expect???Do you think all the Muslims in this country can and will just pack up and leave or that making life hard will, rather than cause resentments, make them malleable?

Are you that stupid????

I will not sit in polite silence like so many Germans did.

I will call you out and make you put up or shut up or go down trying!

This is my Nation that I love and that I and my family have fought for and too often died since we were just colonies.


I will not let the likes of you warp the values of this Nation.

You are not a Patriot. A Patriot is a responsible citizen who understands that being well informed before you weigh in on subjects of national importance a public forum is his or her DUTY! A Patriot understands that any threat to our Nation is not to be used as a partisan tool! Patriotism is about more than what you FEEL!

I don't define myself as being other than an American first. I don't define myself as being a party member first ! It's my obligation to find out which party has the best position on what issues! I also am educated enough to know that EVERY philosophy ever presented is not without flaws in its application and the adherents can misread the proper philosophical application as well.

For God's sake and all our sakes, shut up!

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
