A shocking incident at Middlebury, where left-wing students assaulted and injured a professor
Middlebury College Professor Allison Stanger was injured by protesters Thursday evening as she was escorting a controversial speaker from campus. She was treated at Porter Hospital and released.
Charles Murray, a political scientist who has been criticized for his views on race and intelligence, was invited to speak on campus by a student group. He was greeted late Thursday afternoon outside McCullough Student Center by hundreds of protesters, and inside Wilson Hall, students turned their backs to him when he got up to speak.
I don’t think Murray is a political scientist. But this is truly sad:
Those kids are stupid. But there is worse to come.
College officials led Murray to another location and a closed circuit broadcast showed him being interviewed by Stanger, the Russell J. Leng ’60 Professor of International Politics and Economics.
Obviously, more was going on than is described in the article, or they wouldn’t have had to move to a safer location.
As Stanger, Murray and a college administrator left McCullough Student Center last evening following the event, they were “physically and violently confronted by a group of protestors,” according to Bill Burger, the college’s vice president for communications and marketing.
That is a remarkably blunt admission by the colleges vice president for marketing! Often colleges try to hush this sort of thing up.
Burger said college public safety officers managed to get Stanger and Murray into the administrator’s car.
“The protestors then violently set upon the car, rocking it, pounding on it, jumping on and try to prevent it from leaving campus,” he said. “At one point a large traffic sign was thrown in front of the car. Public Safety officers were able, finally, to clear the way to allow the vehicle to leave campus.
There is no mention of any arrests being made.
“During this confrontation outside McCullough, one of the demonstrators pulled Prof. Stanger’s hair and twisted her neck,” Burger continued. “She was attended to at Porter Hospital later and (on Friday) is wearing a neck brace.”
These people need to be jailed. For a considerable time. Why would any parent even consider sending a son or daughter to Middlebury?
The article concludes with what appears to be a justification of the leftists’ criminal acts–a quote from a long-discredited hate group:
The Southern Poverty Law Center has called Murray a “white nationalist” who has used “racist pseudoscience.”
That is idiotic, but a fitting conclusion to a disgusting story. Via InstaPundit.
