Video – Interview by Tucker Carlson with Author Prevented from Speaking on College Campus: Students Influenced by SPLC’s Lies
“The whole notion of a University is that it is a safe space, if I may use that phrase, for intellectual discourse. That is THE thing that it is supposed to do… what went on inside that lecture hall was a repudiation of what the university is all about.”
— Charles Murray
Back in March of this year, sociologist Charles Murray was invited to speak at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont. Little did Mr. Murray know that he was about to be involved in one of the most glaring examples of liberal insanity that has infected American colleges in recent years. When Murray arrived at the school a mob of some 100-200 students began protesting his arrival, they refused to allow the man to speak and they forced the event to be shut down and shifted towards an alternate plan. After completing his revamped address Murray was again met by the violent mob of leftist students and was chased off the campus in a rush that saw the liberal professor who invited him seriously hurt by the student thugs.
Murray had stayed relatively silent since the chaotic event but he finally appeared on Fox News with Tucker Carlson to talk about what happened and why what happened is important and must be dealt with.
Murray argued that the incident at Middlebury “is not necessarily an epidemic but that it is “toxic” to the belief that universities are spaces for intellectualism.
“What went on inside that lecture hall was a repudiation of what the university is all about.”
In the aftermath of the Middlebury event we learned that the leftist students had been inspired by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) categorization of Murray as an “extremist” and “racist pseudoscientist.” This is yet another instance where the SPLC is listed as the inspiration for violence (see here and here).
Murray argues that the SPLC is wrong – he’s not a white supremacist, he’s not a white nationalist, he’s not a racist, and he’s no extremist.
