Among the items in Ole Miss Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter’s list is the official flag of the State of Mississippi.

An alert from the Our State Flag Foundation reports that Ole Miss Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter spoke today to an engineering class and had some startling words. According to witnesses, Vitter told the class that the school mascot Colonel Reb, and the long-time tradition of the playing of the song Dixie were gone for good, including the use of the Mississippi state flag on campus. According to the report Vitter state plainly that the reason for this decision was that the symbols were racist.

Here’s the full text of the post:

“An engineering class today, held in Brevard, had the privilege of having Chancellor Vitter come speak. In his speech, Vitter said colonel reb, Dixie, and the state flag are all symbols of racism and hate and they will never be here again. Implying that everyone who supports those three things are “racist”… Let that sink in.”

    Everybody who supports our traditional symbols are not racists. Our ancestors did not shun their duties. Their state seceded and they came to its defense. The real racists are the people who want to tear our symbols and monuments down. Let’s see if they are going to fight the next war or if they are going to run like rabbits.

    Vitter comes from a family of stupid people. His brother is former senator and failed candidate for governor david vitter. Also not very smart. Vitter at Ole Miss is stupid and evil.

    Just another bonehead that wants to erase history. Leave the flag alone. Things that happened hundreds of years ago cannot be changed or withdrawn. Instead of ridding the world of these historical symbols why not use them to teach, educate the kids of what is just another view of the war and slavery. Let them decide what is truth and what is not. let them do the research and decide on their own.
