Middlebury's Shameful Suppression
Charles Murray was invited by students to speak at Middlebury College by a conservative group. The college accepted this invitation, and the president of the college spoke before Murray. She said clearly that Middlebury was liberal, while Murray was not, but that as liberals, the college was open to listening to opposing views.
Whereupon liberal students shouted down Murray to the point that he had to leave the room. The college attempted to interview him in a separate location, streaming the interview back to the original hall, but that was shouted down, too.
Murray's car was attacked.
Worse, a professor who had helped with the interview was physically attacked, ending up in a neck brace.
But worst of all, the college has taken no disciplinary action against the suppressors. I think they should at least be suspended, with notation, for the rest of the year, and have to reapply for admission.
This is exactly the kind of mob action that the fascists engaged in, which these same liberals so fear and condemn.
