My piece on Jordan Peterson got linked to by the great man himself. Let’s see how he examined my arguments and firmly rebutted them. After all, I am in the business of putting out ideas, a good part of which is to see whether or not I am on the right track; people’s reactions are a big part of my own learning curve.
Based on that I can now safely declare that I am right over the target.
Peterson responded with a stream of ad hominem slurs, the same slurs which are routinely used by SJWs and the prog left in general. In other words, he used the same tactics which supposedly he battles against on a regular basis. Let’s take apart his little tweet bit by bit.
He starts off with some Loony Tunes era nonsense which he misquotes. Don’t be fooled; this is a deliberate tactic. He is letting the rabbits know that he is on their side.
Next up he accuses me of being a misogynist. This is a very big red flag. Wasn’t Peterson supposed to be on the side of men? Isn’t that what most of the comments on my piece in support of Peterson were saying? And yet the minute he gets a bit of push-back he immediately labels me as a misogynist. Listen up people; he is signalling here. He is signaling his worthiness to all women everywhere. He is really on their side.
All of you who think that Peterson is on the side of men need this wake up call. Peterson doesn’t want you to be good at being men, he wants you to be good men. Good provider men for women everywhere. Good men who will do as they are told. Peterson is telling men to clean up their room? Give me a break. Our grandmothers were saying that. He’s not saying anything new, he’s just repackaged it in a brown cardigan.
Next he accused me of being antisemitic. This is genuinely news to me. I mean, I even posted a thread on the JQ stating my position on the subject as regards to the comments policy on this blog. But I suppose that merely linking to Vox Day is now considered to be antisemitic. How else can this accusation of hating the Jews be otherwise interpreted?
Peterson is making me guilty by association.
Oh golly gee whiz, Mary Sue – I thought that Peterson was against all that sort of stuff. I mean, that’s what he says, right?
Never listen to what they say, just watch what they do.
Finally he accused me of being right wing. So for all of you on the right side of politics, let alone the alt-right, is that clear enough for you now? Peterson considers that applying the label of right-winger to be an insult. How much clearer do you need it to be?
Does Peterson state some truths? Of course he does, but so what? He is not on our side. The cucks on the right are always so very desperate to ingratiate themselves with whatever enemy comes along who even glances in their direction. If they seem to share the values of the right then they are immediately embraced as the great savior. It happens time and time again. The last two speakers to tour Australia who got a huge reception from the right have been a Jewish homosexual who married a black man and this left wing Canadian psychology professor who wants men to be better providers. It’s pathetic.
Jordan Peterson is only angry at the left because he thinks that they have gone too far, not that they are wrong. He desires a return to the left of the early 1970s when apparently they believed in free speech. He’s not against using whatever ridiculous transsexual pronouns his students demand today; he’s just against being forced to do so by law. As Vox Day states in the comments in this post:
A classic Canadian liberal is a Leftist. Peterson is not disillusioned with liberalism, he is afraid of the SJW extremists. He is a metaphorical Menshevik and the fact that he opposes the modern Bolsheviks does not mean that he is our side. He is not. He regards us as the enemy and he supports our enemies. He is to the Left of the cucks that most of you Peterson fans rightly despise. He gets virtually nothing right and he does not oppose the two biggest dangers to the West, immigration and feminism.
Do not worship false prophets.
Peterson made a grave mistake with his tweet that attempted to mock me. He should have never responded to my article. By doing so in the way that he did he gave it immense credibility. It was a really stupid mistake, and a really dumb one at that. He has drawn back the curtain on his own lies and hypocrisy. Do not be disheartened if you really believed that he was the real deal. Be content that he has been exposed so easily and that you needn’t have wasted any more time.
