Confederate 901 and the Hiwaymen held a pro-Confederate rally this weekend in Oxford, MS:
“Two pro-Confederate political groups, Confederate 901 and The Hiwaymen, hosted a march in Oxford on Saturday afternoon to protest the University of Mississippi’s discontinuation of Colonel Reb as its mascot and other efforts the university has taken to distance itself from Confederate heritage.
The march began in downtown Oxford at The Square around 1 p.m. The protesters marched to campus where they are convening around a monument to an unnamed Confederate soldier.
At the same time the march was taking place, several members of the Ole Miss Rebels basketball team took a knee during the National Anthem before their home game against Georgia. …”
I’ve written about both groups here in the past.
The Hiwaymen were with us in Charlottesville and at Joey Gibson’s big rally in Portland last August. Confederate 901 and the Hiwaymen have both held previous rallies in the Memphis area. The last one that I recall was disrupted by our old friend Jordan Reid.
Note: It looks like at least one communist got violent and was arrested.
