Outstanding. Mr. Peterson is being more aggressive these days and he is owning these people.

So a racist, an anti-semite, a comedian and a professor walk into a lecture hall....


It'll probably get posted to Youtube in the next few days, especially since it's JP-related.

Full debate is available, and IMO worth a listen.

Peterson gets into it with race-baiter Michael Dyson a few times. They don't really stay exactly on the set topic of political correctness.

Saw Dr Peterson at the Tower Theater last night in Philly.

Fantastic experience. The sold out crowd hung on to his every word. He dropped so many knowledge bombs that I couldn't keep up. I wish I would have brought a note pad with me. I'm still trying to digest the things that he was saying.

He totally eviscerated the liberal media.

He had a question and answer session afterwards where I got to experience his wry sense of humor. Someone asked him, "Why do you sound like Kermit the Frog" He responded, "by saying it's better than Piggy"

He was asked what he thought about Trump, he responded it doesn't matter what he thinks.

Overall, I highly suggest going if he's in your area.

An interesting essay from a leftist who..actually thinks Petterson is onto something while, questioning her own ideological colleagues. The comments are pretty amusing.

Jordan Peterson and the Failure of the Left
quote:
Like most people, I’d never heard of Jordan Peterson until a short time ago. In my case, the first signal of his arrival on the cultural scene was a friend’s series of Facebook posts vividly denouncing him as a reactionary cult-like leader. Seeing a Canadian psychology professor be the subject of such alarm piqued my curiosity. As an American ex-academic, I tend to stereotype Canadians as almost laughably polite, and professors as largely contained in their own hyper-specialized, politically irrelevant bubbles. The vision of a wild-eyed Canadian psych prof with a fanatical alt-right following on YouTube was an intriguing challenge to my priors.

Soon, I found myself going down the Peterson rabbit-hole with countless others. I listened to several of his lectures on reinterpreting Bible stories as archetypical myths. Contradicting my friend’s warnings of hate-filled right-wing propaganda, I found Peterson’s discussions intellectually engaging, personally meaningful, and a refreshing departure from the standard discourse on such issues. I read up on Peterson’s battles over Canadian hate speech legislation and watched his infamous Cathy Newman interview. Here again, I found Peterson’s commentary to be largely thoughtful and thought-provoking. I tuned into his podcast discussions with Sam Harris, and started exploring Harris’s work as well. I even bought and read 12 Rules for Life, and put Maps of Meaning on order at my local public library.

Although my newfound interest in Peterson might seem to put me in good company—he’s selling out 5,000-plus seat lecture halls regularly and 12 Rules for Life is now a #1 bestseller—this isn’t the case at all. On the contrary, it puts me into a pretty isolated, alienated, and uncomfortable position. The reason for this is simple: I’ve always identified strongly with the left-leaning side of the political and cultural spectrum. And, as anyone who’s been following Peterson’s bizarrely rapid rise to fame knows, his growing popularity has been strongly countered by progressive commentators, who keep sounding the alarm against him at increasingly higher volumes.

If you follow the news stream, it seems that virtually every right-thinking left-leaning (pun intended) journalist, blogger, and social media maven agrees: Peterson is an alt-right wolf in professorial sheep’s clothing, a self-serving charlatan who dresses up old-school misogyny, racism, and elitism in faux-intellectual, fascist mystical garb.

Good grief, lady. You're an idiot. Witness the brief exchange about multi-dimensional spaces early on in this clip. What's that faint whistling sound, lady? That's the FREAKING POINT sailing far, far above your head. You seem incapable of grasping the concepts Peterson is putting forth, and your own argument is emotion-based and weak.



Mr. Peterson reveals the intellectual shortcomings of these talk show hosts and news personalities merely by speaking with them.

Outclassed. You are outclassed, madame, and unqualified. Let someone else ask the questions. You are out of your league and that's putting it very mildly.

Good grief, she's the head of radio at The Economist...so much for any strain of conservative thought there. Her entire listening capacity was picking up on key words and throwing them back at him with her POV. Outclassed.

Some people are claiming that Peterson keeps getting ambushed in interviews like this. I think he knows exactly what he's getting into and he's intentionally doing battle with these leftist media types to reach a wide audience and demonstrate how wrong and foolish they are. He knows what he's saying will resonate with a lot of people who simply haven't been exposed via the media and universities to the level of thought and reason he's offering. It's the Ben Shapiro rule of when to engage, i.e., it's worth it to engage an opponent when there's a big enough audience and you know you can win in the eyes of many of them.

He regularly tweets links to negative articles about himself, too. It seems self destructive, but he knows there are plenty of people who follow him who have a much better understanding of who he is and what he believes; they can spot the ignorance and the BS in the articles, which only reinforces their belief in him being a good man with legitimate concerns about the left's slide away from individual responsibility and liberty and too collectivism.

This is another one where that perfectly demonstrates the kind of leftwing ideologues Peterson is trying to dethrone from there place in Western society. Take a couple of blood-pressure pills before listening:

For those who are not able to attend a 12 Rules to Live By lecture by Jordan Peterson, someone has taken the trouble to provode a video of the lecture last month in San Francisco.

Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

Wife and I attended the Atlanta event a couple of days ago. We had a great time. We were surprised at the number of women that were there. He did the rules about kids (5&10?)and we laughed our asses off.

Glad to see Dr. Peterson fighting back.

'This is a warning': Jordan Peterson launches $1.5M defamation lawsuit against Wilfrid Laurier University


University of Toronto Professor Jordan Peterson has launched a $1.5-million defamation suit against Wilfrid Laurier University, two of its professors and a former gender and equity manager for suggesting he was “analogous to Adolf Hitler.”

The statement of claim, prepared by lawyer Howard Levitt and filed Monday, says Peterson was falsely labelled as incompetent, sexist, misogynist, dangerous and racist in a now infamous disciplinary meeting with Wilfrid Laurier University teaching assistant Lindsay Shepherd.

Shepherd was disciplined during the meeting for showing students a TV clip of Peterson discussing gender-neutral pronouns, something the university later apologized for, but Peterson told the Toronto Sun Wednesday he believes the university failed to properly respond to the incident.

“So I think this is a warning, let’s say, to other careless administrators and professors who allow their ideological presuppositions to get the best of them to be a bit more careful with what they say and do,” he said.

Peterson’s lawyer said the U of T professor cannot allow a university to viciously slander him, let alone compare his comments to a speech by Hitler, when he has spent his life and career teaching against the evils of the Holocaust and despots.

“The politically correct on campus should not think that they can defame people, slander people and bully people implicitly and explicitly with impunity,” Levitt said. “This isn’t just some internet troll mouthing off in a way that no one pays attention to and doesn’t give any credence to. These are professors and head of gender equity studies making comments that are atrocious about Dr. Peterson who is one of if not Canada’s most prominent intellectual.”

In a statement, Wilfrid Laurier University said it will defend itself vigorously against the legal action.

“Laurier remains committed to intellectual inquiry, critical reflection, scholarly integrity, academic freedom and freedom of expression while striving to be a supportive and inclusive community,” the university statement says

Peterson’s statement of claim, which has not been proven in court, also names Professors Nathan Rambukkana and Herbert Pimlott along with Adria Joel, then the acting manager of gendered violence prevention and support but no longer with the university.

None of the three could be reached for comment.

Last November, Shepherd was ordered to a disciplinary meeting with Rambukkana, Pimlott and Joel after she showed her students a debate that aired on TVOntario featuring Peterson, a psychology professor who had criticized political correctness on university campuses and compelled use of genderless pronouns as an infringement on free speech and academic freedom.

Shepherd was told one of the students had complained she’d created a toxic environment for trans people, although the university later acknowledged there was no formal complaint.

Levitt, who also represents Shepherd in her $3.6-million lawsuit against Wilfrid Laurier University, said the teaching assistant was “castigated to tears” by the “political correctness police” for showing two sides of a debate in a neutral fashion.

Shepherd recorded the hour-long tirade and that audio posted online went viral.

The statement of claim identifies a long list of accusations made against Peterson in the meeting, alleging he helped target trans students and had no credible professional research.

“This has a significant impact on Peterson’s reputation among those with whom he deals, including fellow academics, future and existing students, the university where he works and those whom might read his books of listen to his lectures,” the statement of claim says. “Ironically, Peterson’s academic credentials are dramatically superior to those of either Professors Rambukkana or Pimlott.”

Peterson added, “We’ll see if two lawsuits make the point.”

Peterson is currently on a world speaking tour promoting his bestseller, 12 Rules for Life.

The Shepherd incident is one in a series that has prompted calls, including from Ontario Premier-designate Doug Ford, to tie post-secondary funding to freedom of speech.

^^^ Maybe the suit has a chance in Canada. I can't imagine it would in the US.

I'm skeptical JBP really thinks people/organizations should be prosecuted for scurrilous claims made in private. My guess is he's just saying "if y'all mofos want a war over speech, I'll play. Slander me to your students at your own peril."
