Ole Miss Frat Kicks Out Student After He Mocked Pro-Palestinian Protester

A University of Mississippi fraternity member has been shown the door by his fellow brothers after a video of him appearing to make “monkey noises” and gestures at an anti-Israel protester last week went viral online.

A protest popped up on the Ole Miss campus on Thursday as the school joined others in becoming ground zero for the cultural clash regarding the ongoing war on the Islamic terror group Hamas in Gaza.

Leftist students and other agitators have taken over campuses nationwide, disrupting classes and graduations.

In Oxford last Thursday, protesters showed up in force, but they were met with opposition.

One clip that was posted on X showed a woman, who was identified as graduate student Jaylin Smith, being mocked by counter-protesters.

Watch:

About 9 seconds into the video, a young man can be seen on the right side of the frame, making a “hoo-hoo-hoo” noise and jumping up and down. The young man in the clip was connected to the Ole Miss chapter of Phi Delta Theta, and his actions were interpreted by many to be racist.

Republican Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves shared a separate video of many Ole Miss students singing patriotically and said the students’ action warmed his heart.

A local media member shared the video of the exchange between Smith and the fraternity member and targeted Reeves.

Mississippi Free Press editor Ashton Pittman commented, “Is this heart warming?”

Far-left former ESPN host Jemele Hill was among those who expressed outrage online and shared Pittman’s post.

Hill shared the video and commented, “That fraternity’s national leadership needs to be contacted immediately and that frat should be barred from campus.”

On Sunday, Phi Delta Theta issued a statement on its national website announcing the young man, whose actions its leadership called “racist,” had been kicked out of the fraternity last Friday.

The fraternity said, “Phi Delta Theta General Headquarters is aware of the video regarding the student protest at the University of Mississippi. The racist actions in the video were those of an individual and are antithetical to the values of Phi Delta Theta and the Mississippi Alpha chapter. The responsible individual was removed from membership on Friday, May 3.”

The student was also scolded by the Ole Miss Associate Student Body, which issued its own statement about last week’s incident.

“Yesterday, we observed a demonstration on our campus — a place for the expression of diverse viewpoints, protected by our constitutional First Amendment Rights,” the group said in a statement. “Yet, amidst this expression, unacceptable remarks were made that departed from our cherished values.”

    It doesn’t matter what black people do as long as white people don’t make fun of them with any gestures that appear racist. Black people can take fentanyl overdoses, and have white cops imprisoned for murder. Black people can riot, burn, steal, and destroy an entire city in the name of oppression, and white people jump on board the anti-racisim train to roll over anyone who gets in the way. We have lost our republic to hatred and racism against white people.

    Almost 50% of those arrested at Columbia, City College not students

    Those arrested at Columbia and CCNY faced charges ranging from burglary to assault on a police officer.

    By David Isaac, JNS (WIN WORLD ISREAL NEWS)

    Almost half of the anti-Israel protesters arrested at Columbia University and City College of New York weren’t students, city officials announced on May 2.

    On April 30, the New York City Police Department arrested 282 individuals who participated in “violent protests and unlawful conduct,” on the two campuses. ”

    Of those, 134 had no affiliation with either school, according to a statement by New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Police Commissioner Edward Caban.

    Twenty-nine percent (32) of the 112 individuals arrested at Columbia were not students and 60% (102) of the 170 arrested at the City College were unaffiliated with that school.

    Those arrested at Columbia and CCNY faced charges ranging from burglary to assault on a police officer, obstructing governmental administration, criminal mischief, resisting arrest, trespassing and disorderly conduct (including obstructing vehicular/pedestrian traffic/failure to disperse).

    “The world is watching New York City, and our message to them has been clear: We will not be a city of lawlessness, and we will not allow our youth to be influenced by those who have no goal other than spreading hate and wreaking havoc on our city,” said Mayor Adams.

    “There is nothing peaceful about barricading buildings, destroying property, dismantling security cameras, or calling for the destruction of an entire people, and we will not allow what should be peaceful gatherings to turn into violent spectacles,” he added.

    ANTI-ISRAEL PROTESTS SURGE ON US CAMPUSES WITH COLUMBIA TAKING LEAD
    “As the anti-Israel protests began to escalate, it became abundantly clear that individuals unaffiliated with these schools had entered these different campuses and, in some cases, were even training students in unlawful protest tactics, many which we witnessed escalating into violent conduct,” he said.

    At Columbia, student demonstrators sought outside help, consulting with campus protest veterans, former Black Panthers and National Students for Justice in Palestine, which coordinates hundreds of Students for Justice in Palestine chapters across the country, The Wall Street Journal reported on May 3.

    One of the leaders of the recent Columbia protests has been revealed as the 40-year-old son of millionaire ad executives, who lives in a four story Brooklyn townhouse, The Daily Mail reported on May 4.

    “James Carlson, who also goes by Cody Carlson and Cody Tarlow, was arrested by the NYPD and charged with burglary and illegal entry after he stormed Columbia’s Hamilton Hall and re-named it ‘Hind’ Hall,” the British paper said.

    Officials described him as a “a long-time figure in the anarchist world,” the paper said.

    James is suspected of burning an Israeli flag on May 2 and taking part in the blocking of bridges and tunnels in the city.

    ANTISEMITES REVEAL PERSONAL INFO ABOUT JEWISH PROFESSORS AT COLUMBIA
    He had been arrested for allegedly attacking a police officer at G8 riots in San Francisco in 2005.

    Dang straight…let’s don’t let this stuff get out of hand. Anyone of any color burning our flag and or our history, like statues, or trying to burn down police precincts or federal buildings with people in them, or marching to commie-Terrorist-muslim-beheader screams of death to America should be treated with respect. But if you must counter protest, and if your passion prompts you to mock, do so to any color skin except black. Because racism against blacks is the real issue on these campuses right now and actually the only real issue in America. Got it. None of these schools deserve the right to one penny of my tax dollars much less the privilege to train our youth. #nationofidiots. #specialtreatmentofanyraceisracism

    How many of the protesters were not students of old Mississippi university and were paid to stir up students paid for by George Soros and his family that’s who needs to be arrested and deported from America don’t care where he go but he needs to be shut down I know his home country won’t allow him back in but somewhere should take him I would suggest Gaza since he supports Hamas
