Moonbat Issues Groveling Justification for Thought Crime of Running a Picture of Charles Murray

The highly respected author Charles Murray is hated by leftists not merely for his libertarian/conservative orientation, but for being coauthor of a book published back in 1994 acknowledging the repeatedly proven scientific fact that as a group, blacks have significantly lower IQs than whites and Asians. This blows a gaping hole in the hull of liberal ideology, so it is essential that Murray be de-platformed. When he spoke at Middlebury College a year ago, social justice warriors rioted. A female political science professor named Allison Stanger was injured while helping Murray to escape.

Murray does not have to appear in person at Middlebury to cause conflict. Just appearing in the college paper does the trick. Ethan Brady, editor in chief of The Middlebury Campus, issues a cringing justification for running his picture on the front page:

I recognize that it may be especially jarring, particularly for students of color who feel that Charles Murray’s rhetoric poses a threat to their very humanity. I also recognize that Murray’s visit to campus last March is an open wound for a campus trying desperately to move forward from it.

Brady’s colleagues at the paper thought that even to run a picture of Murray would be “inappropriate” (i.e., a thought crime). But Brady boldly pressed forward.

We cannot escape our history. We can only confront it.

For crying out loud. You would think we were talking about a picture of corpses piled up at a concentration camp. But no, it’s just this.

Murray responds:

The hysteria evoked on college campuses by any dissent from leftist ideology may be good for a laugh, but it does not bode well for our future as a free country.
