Ole Miss Students Drown Out Pro-Hamas Mob By Singing ‘Star-Spangled Banner’

On Thursday students at the University of Mississippi turned a pro-Palestine protest into a resonant chant of unity and national pride. The normally tranquil Quad of the university was the stage for a clash of voices following a protest by pro-Palestine activists, which aimed to criticize the Israeli military’s actions in Gaza.

The gathering, initially composed of about 50-60 protesters, escalated when over 200 counter-protesters converged on the scene. The counter-demonstrators, embodying a robust patriotic spirit, responded by singing “The Star-Spangled Banner,” overshadowing the pro-Palestine chants.

Amidst the chaotic scene, a new chant emerged: “We want Trump” as well.

According to the Clarion Ledger, the situation intensified with some counter-protesters reportedly throwing objects and vocally confronting the pro-Palestine group. Security concerns prompted the university to evacuate the pro-Palestine protesters from the campus, ensuring the safety of all involved.

On Thursday, Republican Governor Tate Reeves of Mississippi acknowledged that he was informed about the ongoing protest at the university campus.

“Mississippi law enforcement is also aware. And they are prepared. Campus police, City, County, and State assets are being deployed and coordinated. We will offer a unified response with one mission: Peaceful protests are allowed and protected – no matter how outrageous those protesters’ views may seem to some of us. But unlawful behavior will not be tolerated. It will be dealt with accordingly,” Reeves stated.
