I know this video will anger most of you and believe me, I am right there with you, but watch the man's behavior in the midst of this puerile insanity and listen to what he says at the end:

I guess I went to boring colleges, or maybe my generation just had more sense...

We never shouted people down. You just listened to what they had to say and then made up your own mind about what was right or wrong. Or you could just walk out if you didn't want to listen.

These kids aren't learning anything except how to be idiots.

I have trouble remaining calm like he does.

What composure that man has! His calmness and restraint is a model to remember if I'm ever in a situation like the one in the video.

But that's not happening, is it? Quite the opposite, actually. So, pay attention to Mr. Peterson.

My apologies, I couldn't listen to the whole thing in one sitting. Stupidity becomes harder and harder to tolerate as I get older.

Mr Peterson has some interesting things to say, despite being Canadian. I am not well versed in his dogma, but can't fault him for the things he says in the face of what he was forced to endure in the video.

The crowd, however, is filled with fail. How can college alumni, who will rule Canada one day, discount the freedom of expression that Mr. Peterson has propagated?

Canada, as I have brought out many times, has proven what it is and what it represents.

It doesn't matter if it happened in Canada or California or Caracas. The man is demonstrating mechanisms for coping with stupid leftis shit.

As for the protestors, I bet their mommies and daddies are real proud of them.

There is nothing more pathetically sad than the certainty of the ignorant in the correctness of their position.

One thing he does say that intrigued me. That there are factions whose real purpose is to sustain conflict. Which side they're on doesn't really matter, they just want the conflict to continue and to avoid the possibility of gaining consensus.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Antifafascists are like Islamofascists.

Same thought processes.

Similar attire (e.g., black masks).

Same behavior.

Google/Youtube shut down his account until there was sufficient backlash that they turned his account back on.

Yes, my goodness, I can see how massive doses of truth and reality might traumatize the snowflakes. Clearly, Jordan Peterson is a racist fascist hate monger and needs to be suppressed.

Thanks for the posting. I recommend a perusal of both his Web page and YouTube channel; it will take some time.

He seems a stellar example of Kipling's poem If.

The man is right. Intellect and commitment will win eventually. The road to the end will be long and painful though.

The antifas have no long term commitment, this is simply today's argument. They will get bored and move on.

I am old... my cognition is not what it was.

So... what are the idiots protesting? He seems a highly intelligent and reasonable speaker.

I have to think that would be a target rich environment... that is why he is on the national stage as a peace-maker and I am not.

I look forward to living another ten or so years and see where the "protestors" end up in their lives.

I don't recall if it's a proposed federal law in Canada, or just a university regulation, but there's a rule in the works he's opposed to that would require you to refer to someone with whatever so-called gender pronoun they demand. That's why in the video the snowlfakes keep talking about "my pronouns."

It's a Federal Law (C-16) not only would you be required to use the demanded, ever changing, pronoun of choice, your employer would be responsible for making certain that you did.

Since Para posted this I have been spending a few hours each day watching Jordan Peterson's videos. He has many of his lectures posted.
It has been well worth my time.

Search you tube for Jordan B. Peterson "Every woman needs to see this!" this should open your eyes and reinforce your opinions. There is also an excellent interview with Peterson by Mark Steyn

Peterson has an amazing ability to stay calm, put his thoughts together, and then say exactly what he thinks.
I think he is an excellent psychology professor and also has an excellent grasp of political philosophy. He is definitely on our side.

I tend to be a day late and a dollar short with my "news" posts - always seeming to be jib jab. But I haven't seen this new Jordan Peterson video posted anywhere. He handles this ultra-leftist, ultra-manipulative british reporter as masterfully as I have seen anyone ever do it.

I've been watching Jordan Peterson videos and lectures for a few months now, he is terrific and I've learned so much and there is so much more to learn.

That woman is completely out of her element, she has no knowledge of the topic and no desire to learn anything because she thinks she knows it all. She didn't even know what "equality of opportunity" and "equality of outcome" are. I love the way she says Peterson is making wildly gross generalizations but it is really her making those wildly gross generalizations.

She is typical of the elitist posturing we see in all liberals.
