Middlebury College students disrupt Charles Murray lecture, assault professor
Video below of student "protesters" disrupting the lecture. Skip to 18:37 to see when Murray is introduced.




Not caught on video, Professor Allison Stanger and an administrator were escorting Murray through campus, when a mob of "protesters" violently confronted them and injured Stanger's neck badly enough that she went to the hospital: http://www.addisonindependent.com/201703...al-speaker

Another week, another mass of violent, anti-speech campus leftists ignored or downplayed by the mainstream.

RE: Middlebury College students disrupt Charles Murray lecture, assault professor
I wondered if someone was going to post about this. Charles Murray is pretty tame compared to Milo. He's also over 70 years old.

Twenty years ago, he co-wrote a book called The Bell Curve, which dealt with race, IQ, and class structure. A lot of his predictions have come true. At the same time, the political left threw a hissyfit over his book and called him racist and everything else. Since the co-author died right before publication, Murray became the public face of the book.

He crunches numbers very well, but I'm not sure what he actually believes at times. The left has always hated him though because many of his numbers are largely irrefutable.

The left's total lack of intellectual rigour is exposed when they refer to him as a white supremacist.

Nowhere in The Bell Curve is it claimed that Whites (European Whites) have the highest IQ aggregate.

This would be the first thing you'd try to claim if you were a white supremacist.

Fun fact about this particular protest:

You can hear the students chanting "Racist, sexist, anti-gay, Charles Murray go away!"

Apparently, one of the students was asked why they yelled "anti-gay" when Murray was supportive of gay marriage and hadn't said anything remotely negative about gays.

The answer was that it rhymes with "go away"....Laugh

Yeah we all heard the excuses when leftist thugs rioted against Milo: "He's a troll," "He mocks people," "He provokes people," "He's not a legitimate intellectual," etc.

Those apologists are out of excuses now, because none of that applies to Charles Murray. He is a legitimate intellectual who deals in in facts and statistics. There's no denying the reason people try to silence Charles Murray is that his research contradicts the foundations of leftism.

If conservatives are "anti-science" for declaring skepticism about certain scientific findings, how do liberals get a pass for trying to suppress certain scientific findings?

I've noticed that these people are incapable of accusing someone solely of being racist, solely of being transphobic, or whatever. If you get on their bad side, you invariably get the entire word soup thrown at you. Racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, white supremacist... these terms are a package deal. Discerning which type of Wrongthink a person espouses would actually require a little homework on the protesters' part.

RE: Middlebury College students disrupt Charles Murray lecture, assault professor
In The Bell Curve, there is one chapter where Murray reports the data on race and IQ.

To no one's surprise, it went Asians, then Whites, then Hispanics, then Blacks in terms of group IQ averages.

Simply reporting this is crimethink. This is why Murray is a pariah. For simply reporting what other researchers have found, and that no one refutes.

I think this event is a good thing. I have nothing against Charles Murray personally, but....

It brings things into better focus. The sooner the cucks see that "they" don't want dialogue, but power, through violence if required, the better off we all are. it clears the decks, so to speak. No more pretending.

Лучше поздно, чем никогда

Those that see...will prepare.

I just finished Coming Apart the other week - he spends the whole book saying that white America is on a decline because social capital is dead and festering. I like his writing, although I don't know why he never supported Trump and was kind of offended when I found out.

RE: Middlebury College students disrupt Charles Murray lecture, assault professor
From Steve Sailer,

http://www.unz.com/isteve/q-how-does-the...the-koran/


A few examples of courses from the Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies program home page at Middlebury College:


Sociology of Heterosexuality
Most people believe that heterosexuality is natural or rooted in biology and so never look very closely at it as a product of culture. In this course we will examine the artifacts, institutions, rituals, and ideologies that construct heterosexuality and the heterosexual person in American culture. We will also pay close attention to how heterosexuality works alongside other forms of social power, especially gender, race, and class. 3 hrs. lect. NOR SOC

Spring 2014, Spring 2017

Queering Food: Race, Place, and Social Justice
In this course we will examine food studies, politics, and movements through the lenses of queer, feminist, and critical theory (including work that centralizes gender, class, race, disability, sexuality, and place). In doing so, we will consider dominant and subaltern approaches to food both within the U.S. and transnationally. Throughout, we will explore how critical theory can offer alternative conceptualizations of food politics and justice, as well as how an analysis of food might expand our understandings of embodied subjectivities and the various social structures that produce them. 3 hrs. sem. CMP NOR SOC

Spring 2017


But then there’s:



The Qur’an and the Feminist Subject WT
How was the Qur’an compiled, and who was involved in that process? What does the Qur’an say about Muhammad and the early community of believers? Why is it so difficult to approach? While considering the answers to these questions, we will explore the socio-cultural context in which the Qur’an was revealed and its similarities and differences with the Bible. We will also discuss major themes and concepts of the Qur’an and the various ways they have been interpreted by different Muslim communities throughout history. 3 hrs. lect./disc. AAL PHL

Fall 2014

No disrespect offered to the Prophet, peace be upon him!

“The world is what it is; men who are nothing, who allow themselves to become nothing, have no place in it.”

- V.S Naipaul 'A Bend in the river'

He has some crossover with alt-right attitudes and beliefs but he remains an establishment hack - pro-Israel, pro-war, and believes that only Harvard grads should be in top positions.

Trump is a complete anomaly to these kinds of people.

Because you might be killed or enslaved by a less tolerant society?

The irony of Vermonters shouting BLM....Vermont is far and away the whitest state in the country at 1% black (http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/nati...us_N.htm).

RE: Middlebury College students disrupt Charles Murray lecture, assault professor
Charles Murray is one of the few consistently conservative academics who engages in rigorous data collection and extrapolations in his studies/works. If you read coming apart, the residents of Fishtown (White working class) were the ones who supported Trump. The residents of Belmont (White Upper class) supported Hillary (liberals) or Jeb (cucks).

That being said, Murray is affiliated with the AEI -- definitely a Neocohen and part of the 'establishment.' His support for accommodationist Republican politics has contributed to the mess we see in Middlebury and elsewhere.

I attended an elite private college and later an Ivy league grad school. I am damn ashamed to be an Alum of both institutions. Instead of learning practical skill, STEM, these students are learning the art of leftist facism and terrorism.

Here is a very funny memory of Charles Murray. After this, it was hard to take him seriously:

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/21/magazi...-Q4-t.html

Quote:What do you think of Sarah Palin? I’m in love. Truly and deeply in love.

He wasn't the only conservative pundit who was prematurely ejaculating over her.

Murrays first wife was a Thai amputee.

Take care of those titties for me.

Murray did come out in favor of gay marriage a few years ago:
