Ole Miss goes Grinch

Bye-bye Christmas at Ole Miss.




Of course, this is the same school where opinions editors for the school newspaper want to persecute students for expressing opinions. Meanwhile, JJ dedicates this video to Kayp Maye:

Well , we wouldn't want Jewish children to go and feel that Hanukkah is worthy of being part of the celebrations this time of year.

And, Lord knows we want to make others as uncomfortable as possible and let them know Christmas is for Christians only and has zero to do with spreading love and joy and sharing what Christianity is all about.

We certainly don't want to be inclusive but exclusive as Christians because we don't want to set examples for love and kindness but let everyone know we are the only ones God likes.

Hmmm, I remember all the Christmases that Jewish employees who volunteered to fill in while none of us Christians even thought about volunteering to fill in for them during Passover or Hanukkah. But, we run things here so they shouldn't have expected consideration.

Of course, we will never attract others to our faith by being examples of joy, love , peace and " good will to ALL men" but rather by browbeating and threatening them with damnation and being holier than thou and puffed up.

Oh, wait, the Bible says not to do that...over and over and over!


When you use the work " entitled", try to remember that seems to always apply to feelings that majorities in any culture develop.

And, besides Christians are entitled to run the world because we're better than anyone else, right?

@9:08 is right. The rest of the commenters are CINOs.

I wish they'd have a good ol' fashioned bra burning up there in Oxford. Time to really celebrate some of the assets on that campus.

I had to watch the first video twice to make sure I really did hear what I thought I heard...paraphrasing "...We felt 'Grand Ole Christmas' connoted too much Christianity on campus...." While I believe in tolerance and understanding for and of all, I do try to remember that CHRISTMAS is, in fact, a CHRISTIAN holiday.

Ole Miss student leadership appears to be saying "OK, you can have Christmas, but you can't have CHRIST in Christmas...at least not at Ole Miss."

I don't consider myself radical in any regard, and I do respect a reasonable separation of Church and State. However, when we start eliminating "the reason for the season" from Christmas, then maybe it is time to just call it something else altogether so as not to offend anyone. Crass commercialism - is that what it's all about, Alfie???

For the record, the bloviating diatribe lifting up Christians as intolerant bigots does NOT speak for the Christians I know.

Merry Christmas to ALL...but not in Hotty Toddy Land.

P.S. LOVED the South Park video!!!

Why are they worried about being inclusive? Isn't Christmas a Christian holiday? Also, if they don't want to celebrate the birth of Christ, then don't celebrate a mocked up version of it. It is offensive to do so.

Messick said...

I tried to read 9:08's post but there's too much sarcasm floating about to see the commentor's underlying point.

It may have something to do with "inclusion", that unproven facet of social engineering and oft-wielded verbal tool of the SJWs, whose real meaning is the ultimate banishment of the foundations of Western Culture.

But, I could be wrong.

Student reporter doing story on student activities, interviewing students. Not even a hint of involvement by school administration and/or university employees. Sorry, UM haters. Nothing to cling to here.

First they'll effort to eliminate Christ from Christmas but eventually they'll also be forced to change the date. Just as the Islamic whack jobs have been destroying all the monuments and antiquities in their shithole corner of the open sewer world the secular whack jobs in this country will start demanding the same.

Let the cat out of the bag because sooner, or later, we're heading to another civil war. Let's have it out and get it over with.

I wonder what they'll do for Kwanza?

I demand my Festivus pole be included, along with the Feats of Strength!!!!

11:07 - Umm The Taliban and ISIS, which have been destroying ancient antiquities, actually have a lot more in common with the religious right than the secular left.

Anonymous said...

Be inclusive...except to Christians.

Anonymous said...

Note to 11:07: Christ's Mass is a creation of the catholic church circa 335 A.D. as a counter-measure to the pagan celebration of saturnalia (the light overtaking the darkness, i.e., the natural lengthening of daylight following the winter solstice on or around December 21/22). The date of Christ's Mass has no other significance and certainly is not representative of any scholarly understanding of the likely date of the actual birth of Jesus. So, let the devilish islamic fascists change the date. Hell, they may be unwittingly persuaded to affix the date more accurately.

Kwanza is a Made in America™ revisionist holiday literally made up on a college campus to celebrate seasonal cycles (harvest season) in Africa blessed with dressings derived from Hanakah as an alternative to Christmas in the venture of celebrating African American heritage and Pan-Africanism'. It is not a historical holiday in any sense of the term, but your tax dollars paid for me to learn about it in grade school.

I still remember that annoying kwanza song we had to sing every year for a while.

Thank goodness Ramadan starts in June when most of the Black Bear cubs are off wantonly partying, inclusively fornicating and BBQing ribs for the summer. Ramadan would be a real challenge to accommodate. Maybe they could set up a cardboard Holiday Kaaba for summer school cubs to circle around.

@11:25 AM what ancient antiquities has the "religious right" destroyed on par with ISIS and the Taliban?

I bet those same folks complaining about Christmas would be very upset if they had to be in school on Christmas. Oh, wait it is a winter holiday. Give me a break! Anything, to be put in the news. Shame on University of Mississippi for giving in on this.

So cute. The progressives are turning Ole Miss into #Mizzou.

I hope they get their politically correct asses kicked in the Sugar Bowl.

Anonymous said...

Speaking of political correction at our Christmas, I'm sorry, our holiday party the powers that be are having each section sing a verse of the 12 days of holiday. Our verse is, "On the seventh day of holiday my true love sent to me...."

Why does Ole Miss need a Chancellor? It appears the students are running the school. First the Confederate flags at ball games, then Colonel Rebel, the State flag and now Christmas. When and where will it stop?

Anonymous said...

I hear some of the talking heads on cable say they are "efforting" to find information on some matter. Frankly, the word sounds obscene.

As much as I hate Ole Miss (and the 'Ole Miss People' one has to deal with in Jackson, and the 'Ole Miss People' who drive in such an entitled and reckless manner), I have to say that, at least, the school had uniqueness, character, and tradition. It offered a strong identity to those who went there.

But as soon as that Khyat creature became Chancellor, I knew that the school was headed toward nothingness. And things have followed the trajectory I predicted. The Bear mascot looks pitifully downmarket and generic. And now, the student body 'leadership' looks (and expresses itself) like something out of a early-Nineties COMEDY (about pathetic people at a crappy school).

Ole Miss has - almost - ceased to be anything more than just another state school in just another flyover state. Yes: it is FAST becoming another Mizzou: a place for dumb, ugly, badly-dressed nobodies without better options.

I saw this movie. PCU with Jeremy Piven. It was funny and had a scene with Parliment (the band) in it.

Ole miss is stupid. How embarrassing for the alumni that send them money

Select The Images With Trees said...

The freshman class at OM has been TASKED WITH developing a diverse environment and are EFFORTING, on a daily basis, to accomplish that end. The interim chancellor told them, so far, they're SPOT-ON. In reply, using their favorite term, "NO PROBLEM".

Anonymous said...

Please tell me the interim Chancellor took the time to show some courage and denounce these immature snits and to remind them that they attend a university and not a day care.

Look for this group of freshman-managers to vote to replace Coach Freeze with a black dude. It's high time UMAA had a black head football coach. The school down under had one ten years ago. It's only appropriate that the school known for Confederate symbols, civil rights statues, streets named for the Confederacy, songs of racism and a place where the sitting governor stood in a doorway to protest integration.....should reflect more diversity in its leadership ranks.

Anonymous said...

That was at the University of Alabama where the Governor stood in the doorway. Ole Miss doesn't need to have others history thrust upon them. They seem to be having a hard enough time accepting their own.

Maybe the college board made the right decision after all.

How much longer is the liberal minority going to continue to dictate what and how we do everything?? The people of this country need to stop bending over and saying "Please, not too deep this time"?

It is sickening and I for one have had enough..............

I hope Trump pulls it off. At least he has the balls to stand up and say what he thinks and practice what he preaches. Look what its gotten him......he's a billionaire

The student-led event had Santa and Christmas trees, but that doesn't cause much of an uproar. I'm sorry a YouTube video damaged delicate sensibilities on this blog.

well, dec. 25 is not even the date of Jesus' birth; myself, i'm going with sept. 29.....

It won't be too many more years before those awful "Black folks" that everybody in this blog is talking about will be in the MAJORITY in Mississippi. Oh shit! You better hope they don't have good memories about all the hateful crap in these blogs. Because, as dumb as most of you might be, you have to realize that none of these "anonymous" comments are really anonymous. Yep. It's true. The same crazy group of hackers "Anonymous" is releasing software on the dark web as we speak that lets us common folk figure out who's really posting this shit. Damn is this going to be fun exposing the spooks and the spookers!

Just in case anyone is interested in facts of the matter:

"This is a 21-year-old student who wanted make all students feel welcome and come to this annual event," Vice Chancellor Brandi Hephner LaBanc said. "He is very sincere in his wish that he had expressed himself better. It is unfortunate that these reports, including repetition of incomplete information on social media, have misrepresented the nature of the event and his intent as a Christian to welcome all people of faiths and backgrounds."
The SAA event included a Christmas tree lighting, Christmas carols such as "Emmanuel" and "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" from the Ole Miss Gospel Choir."

And from another commenter: "At a place like Ole Miss there are many people from different backgrounds and countries, many of which may have never heard the Christmas message. I would argue that making those people feel welcome is very Christ-like."

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!!!
