Keep Blanking That Chicken Redux

In yet another tribute to futility and ignorance, the champions of all things futile and ignorant, Da Klan, is staging a march (really just a casual get together of like minded fellowship....who happen to share a bloody, racist history of hate and domestic terrorism) in Oxford, MS today at the Ole Miss-LSU game. And what pray tell has their sheets all in a wad? Seems the Ole Miss band has a tradition of playing From Dixie With Love at their football games. At the end of the song, there is an en mass shout of "the South shall rise again" from the student section. In a story for the LSU Daily Reveille, Xerxes A. Wilson, (lawd, you know Xerxes got teased as a child with that name) reported:
the controversy began last month when the Ole Miss Associated Student Body passed a resolution in favor of discontinuing chanting “the South will rise again” to replace it with “to hell with LSU.” The resolution was never fully enacted because it was not signed by the proper officials after passing the senate, said Peyton Beard, Ole Miss Associated Student Body director of athletics.

But, you know, students at a college football game don't like to be told what to do, and they like to drink a lot. So, they kept shouting the retort at the end of the song. Not a big deal really, but it seems Da Klan is a sensitive bunch (ironic huh?) and they want the kids to be able to keep shouting. Whatever! Maybe they just like to dress up in their money costumes and parade around. Who doesn't like a parade, remember this post? It's a Southern thing!
Read the Reveille story here. And ponder this quote by Shane Tate the "grand titan" (it's his real title) of the he-man haters club:
“We aren’t coming there to cause problems or cause trouble,” Tate said. “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.”

Grammar much? Over-react much?
