A group of students at Ole’ Miss belted out “The Star-Spangled Banner,” drowning out the chanting and shouting of anti-Israel protesters on their campus.

In a video posted to X on Tuesday, a number of students could be heard singing the national anthem at the top of their lungs while the shouts of nearby protesters — several of whom carried large Palestinian flags — were completely overpowered.


Governor Tate Reeves (R-MS) responded to the reports of anti-Israel protests — which have spread to campuses all across the country after first garnering media attention in places like Columbia University and Yale — landing in his state.


“I am aware of today’s scheduled protest on the campus of Ole Miss. Mississippi law enforcement is also aware. And they are prepared,” he said. “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. Law and order will be maintained!”

A similar scene played out on the campus of University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, where students drowned out the anti-Israel protesters with loud chants of “USA! USA! USA!”


On University of North Carolina’s Chapel Hill campus, a group of fraternity boys fought back when anti-Israel protesters attempted to replace an American flag with a Palestinian flag. They stepped in and kept the American flag from touching the ground, even as the protesters surrounded them and hurled insults, water, and other objects their way.

Pi Kappa Phi member Guillermo Estrada explained, “My fraternity brother and others ran over to hold it up, in order for it not to touch the ground. People began throwing water bottles at us, rocks, sticks, calling us profane names. We stood for an hour defending the flag so many fight to protect.”
