The Cultural Revolution comes to UMass Amherst.

It’s not a good sign when vague, anonymous allegations on the Internet against an unnamed member of a group lead to violent attacks on that group’s residence:

Recent online sexual assault allegations against Theta Chi at the University of Massachusetts Amherst resulted in raucous protests that included flipping a car and injuring a member of the fraternity.

The rioters flipped a car, broke windows, and injured one of the fraternity members with a thrown bottle.  Based on related reporting, the only criticism of the confirmable violence against the fraternity was a tepid statement from the chancellor that it “is not the answer.”

But, oh well.  Fraternities are acceptable scapegoats on campus, so this is what they get.
