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…)
