According to the Burlington Free Press’s account, one of the Middlebury student activists attempting to hunt down Charles Murray and the Middlebury professor Allison Stanger (who interviewed Murray on closed-circuit TV from a secure location) was Emma Ronai-Durning:
Following the disruption, students scattered through the building trying to find out where the broadcast was coming from.
“We believe that his views are racist. Our goal is not to give him a platform on this campus,” student Emma Ronai-Durning said before disappearing down a stairwell.
Professor Stanger was eventually found and attacked by masked social justice vigilantes. She had to go to the hospital for a neck brace.
Ms. Emma Ronai-Durning’s Linked-In account makes interesting reading. I only recently became aware that campus activists routinely have Linked-In accounts to promote their careers in the highly competitive field of Social Justice Jihadism. Here are some of Ms. Ronai-Durning’s Linked-In hightlights:
