Charles Murray attacked by mob at Middlebury

Another campus, another speaker, another riot - World Net Daily:

March 3, 2017 - "Hundreds of students rioted at Middlebury College in Vermont this week, preventing a respected libertarian scholar from speaking and leaving one female professor in a neck brace.

"Charles Murray was invited by the American Enterprise Institute Club on campus to discuss his book, Coming Apart, which chronicles the struggles facing the white working class in the United States. However, a mob first protested and later assaulted both Murray and Professor Allison Stanger.

"More than 450 alumni at the college released a statement before the event declaring Murray’s invitation to speak was 'unacceptable and unethical' and 'directly endangers members of the community.... We hope many of you dissent, and we hope you make that dissent known to whosoever you see fit,' the statement concluded.

"The result was both verbal and physical abuse. Protesters turned their backs on Murray and chanted, preventing him from delivering his scheduled address. As an alternative, Murray was led to a different location where he was recorded on a closed-circuit telecast being interviewed by Stanger. However, even the recording was interrupted as students slammed chairs, screamed and pulled fire alarms, occasionally shutting down the building’s power.

"Masked demonstrators then physically attacked both Murray and Stanger as they tried to move to a college administrator’s car. Stanger’s hair was pulled by one of the attackers, twisting her neck and inflicting an injury which required hospital treatment and the use of a neck brace. Once Stanger and Murray made it to the vehicle, demonstrators climbed on the hood, slammed on windows, and ripped a stop sign from the ground and used it to prevent the car from moving.

"Even after security cleared a path, Murray’s ordeal was not over. He was later chased from a nearby restaurant when management was warned demonstrators had located him."
