You've probably seen by now the video rant of the Yale student who was so undone by a professor's call for students to be more tolerant of Halloween costumes that she berated him in a way that would make a sailor blush - and then put up his dukes.
The student, who has been identified as Jerylyn Luther, has gone underground. Her facebook and twitter accounts have been deleted. And her profile has been removed from the website of the PR firm owned by her mother. Despite her attempts to wipe out her digital existence, the internet sleuths have learned a few things about her:
1) She had an apparently privileged upbringing. Her parents live in affluent Fairfield, Connecticut where the median home price is around $530,000. The house they live in is actually worth around $760,000. (This should surprise no one. She was attending Yale after all)
2) She was on the search committee that hired the professor she verbally assaulted in the video. (This is a bit of a surprise considering her emotional and incredulous inquiry as to "who the f^%k hired him. It turns out she did)
3) She is a journalist. That's right, she works for the Yale Globalist and actually oversees other journalists at the paper. (This should be a surprise considering her considered effort to stifle free speech, but sadly it is not. Journalists like Ms. Luther are okay with free speech as long as they agree with the point of view)
4) She describes herself as having a passion for social justice and she volunteers to help the homeless. (No surprise here either. The self righteousness has to come from somewhere)
After Ms. Luther's rant concluded, more calm, though not more cogent, students were also captured on video continuing the discussion with the professor. The Yale Daily News has removed the video from the internet with a copyright claim. But it wasn't removed before the writers at turtleboy.com had time to create the following transcript:
The professor was right on and the students are so lost they may never recover.
And now you know some more of the story.
