Thanks to Blake Neff of the Daily Caller, the world knows the name of “Shrieking Girl” — the Yale student caught on video on Nov. 5 screaming profanities at the professor in charge of her college (Silliman College) for his refusal to apologize for failing to protect her from offensive Halloween costumes. Her name is Jerelyn Luther.

In a followup article, Neff explains that Ms. Luther is just one among a horde of cry-bullies at Yale who are now demanding that Yale make reparation for Halloween, by giving them $8 million and firing the college master at whom Ms.Luther shrieked, among other things.

Also thanks largely to Neff, who linked to it in his article, this blogger’s compilation video on “Shrieking Girl” (which includes critical footage, starting at 4:10, which would have been lost if Daniel Page had not saved it before it was censored by Yale) now has more than 15,000 views. Glenn Reynolds and Robert Stacy McCain were also instrumental in publicizing the compilation video. (To help, retweet this.)

So we know who “Shrieking Girl” is, and what she did. But why did she do it? (more…)

Perhaps file this under “wild imagination,” but consider the following (and what it may reveal about Dr. Ben Carson’s probity and judgment if this series of events is more than coincidence): (more…)

Prof. Glenn Reynolds, aka “Instapundit”

Rush Limbaugh gave a shout-out to Glenn Reynolds yesterday, praising his most recent USA Today column, which asks whether college students are too spoiled and immature to vote, so that perhaps we should raise the voting age to 25. here’s a clip (transcript below):

Transcript (copied from Rush’s site):

RUSH: Glenn Reynolds is a law professor at the University of Tennessee. He writes a column at USA Today, and he’s got a piece today which basically says — based on what we’re learning here — that if these college students are too spoiled to even tolerate debate, why in the world do we let them vote? How in the world can people who are afraid to hear anything they disagree with? I mean, literally afraid! How can we let ’em vote? How can students too spoiled, too childlike, too narcissistic, too unwilling to tolerate opposing points of view…?

How can we let them vote? How can they even assess opposing political arguments? How can they determine what they agree or disagree with? They can’t. So raise the voting age to 25. He said, “This isn’t the behavior of people who are capable of weighing opposing ideas, or of changing their minds when they are confronted with evidence that suggests that they are wrong. It’s the behavior of spoiled children — a characterization that . . . underscores . . . they are too young to be responsible for their actions. And spoiled children shouldn’t vote.”

That’s an interesting proposition. It’d never happen. But I like the point that it makes.

Charlie Sykes (FB, Twitter), one of Wisconsin’s most influential conservative journalists (founder of Right Wisconsin) featured a segment on Wisconsin state legislator Rep. Christine Sinicki (D — Milwaukee) in his Oct. 21 talk-radio show (on Milwaukee’s WTMJ).

Charlie’s analysis of Rep. Sinicki’s performance a day earlier on the floor of the Assembly, during debate over revisions to the “John Doe” criminal investigative procedures, provides a bracing reminder of just how low the standards are for election to office in liberal-dominated Milwaukee. (Matt Kittle apparently was the first journalist to mention Sinicki’s performance, in this Oct. 20 post summarizing the “John Doe” debate). (more…)

Mark Belling of Milwaukee’s News/Talk 1130 WISN, who brought this story to wide public attention through his Oct. 12 broadcast, updated listeners on the story in his Oct. 14 broadcast.

In his concluding remarks, he did not mince words, opining that George Williams College’s response to the “Stolen Valor” incident has been “pathetic,” and that the college looks “ridiculous.”

Here is a 12-minute clip of Mark’s remarks, which those following this story closely will want to watch in full:

For those who want just the gist of Mark’s take on the matter, here’s a short version, with only the last two minutes of the longer video:

Ryan Lonergan

Meet Ryan Lonergan, whose eight years of military service included a deployment in Iraq in 2009-10.


Ryan’s service to our country, and to his brothers in arms, is not yet done. Ryan has long been involved in helping veterans, and to that end he is currently pursuing a master’s degree in social work at George Williams College in Williams Bay, WI (an affiliate of Aurora University in Aurora, IL).

On Tuesday, October 6, Ryan publicly called out (in the school lunchroom) a fellow student who had falsely claimed (in elaborate detail) to having been a Marine infantry officer but who, when confronted by Ryan, confessed he’d made up the whole story.

The next day, the school initiated a disciplinary process — not against the student who’d falsely claimed to be a veteran, but against Ryan. (more…)
