Mackeral Snapping Anarchists

"A derivative phrase, "Mackeral Snapping Anarchists," is often borne as a point of pride by people affiliated with the University of Notre Dame, after it was coined by a member of the Ku Klux Klan in an anonymous letter written to the President of the University in 1924, after approximately 1,000 Notre Dame students had succeeded in driving some 30,000 rallying Klansmen out of South Bend."

I had no idea.
