Civil Discourse (120 hits)

A Vermont college professor upset with the disintegration of discourse on his campus released a "statement of principle" for staff to sign to highlight the importance of free speech on campus.

Middlebury College English Professor Jay Parini said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that he does not agree at all with the ideology of controversial author Charles Murray, but that Murray should not have been silenced by students.

Murray was to speak at Middlebury, but was overpowered by chanting protesters in the auditorium, and a professor who escorted Murray out after his event was forced to be canceled was injured by the demonstrators.

"Nothing I wrote was brain surgery," Parini said, "I was frustrated and horrified by what happened at Middlebury last Thursday."
