First, the video:
(Dr. Murray is introduced at just before 19:00)
Protesters shouted down and physically intimidated Charles Murray, the prominent conservative political scientist, at Middlebury College on Thursday evening.
The demonstrators attacked Murray and a professor, Allison Stanger, after disrupting the evening’s planned lecture and forcing a change of venue. One demonstrator yanked Stanger by the hair. The professor was taken to the emergency room as a result of the assault.
“One of the demonstrators pulled Prof. Stanger’s hair and twisted her neck,” Bill Burger, the college’s vice president of communications and marketing, told the Addison County Independent. “She was attended to at Porter Hospital later and (on Friday) is wearing a neck brace
Now seems like the right time to mention that Murray’s book, “Human Accomplishment” is brilliant, fascinating and informative. It is a magnificent look at the history of all innovation in art and elsewhere, with an excellent chapter on post-modernism as an artistic-political movement with all the destruction it has brought with it.
It has an amazing look at the history of technology in China, which shows the incredible achievements of that nation and people. One example of which, from memory, is that when Columbus sailed from Spain to the Caribbean, the Chinese were launching armadas of over 200 ships, the smallest of which was the size of Chris’s or larger and traveling for longer distances.
His methodology for determining greatness in art is also fascinating.
As for us, the masses.
We have to show these fascists in the audience who wish to decide what may and may not be said, itself bad enough to fight, but worse, based on a template of cultural Marxism and at the expense of truth and science, that we will make those they shut down famous and best sellers.
Here is a great chance to do just that.
Fjordman also wrote a series of articles on this book which are equally worthy of reading.
What a sad display.
Those white idiots screaming about white supremacy are beyond help. Then they start chanting black lives matter. What foolishness.
Who would have thought that the time would come when Professors giving lectures at Western Collages would need bodyguards and the way things are going it won’t be long before they need body armor.
Better add books by Allison Stanger to the list of to buy before they are destroyed.
