You may recall the incident we wrote about back in March: Student Mob at Middlebury Attacks Speaker and Sends Prof to Hospital

“Charles Murray go away; sexist, racist, KKK! Charles Murray go away; sexist, racist KKK!,” protesters continually shouted, seemingly occupying the majority of the seats in the venue, according to a live stream of the event provided by the school’s College Republicans chapter who hosted the event.
