My opinion of Jordan Peterson has gone down.


What a stupid reason to leave Twitter. Getting mocked for calling a plus-size model authoritarian wokeness. 馃槀Then throwing a hissy fit at the mockery. Pffff.

OMG Gigantic child Peterson acts childish! Film at 11

But, I'm genuinely shocked at one thing - Peterson actually got something right, that Twitter is terrible

@firefall He is right but his decision to leave makes it marginally better.
And this Kermit the Frog loser is supposed to be the Emperor of Men 馃檮
This is the closest thing the Right has to an intellectual.

Is he still crying every time someone brings up Looney Tunes

@Human1000 He's not at all typical of what you would think. He's highly sociable and a bit of a womaniser. He's also highly educated and articulate. He is a contrarian and at least some of this comes as a reaction against social liberalism in London

One of the problems is that he takes at face value arguments that come from the right (ordinary people against the woke elite, crt gender critical feminists denied free speech) and doesn't see the agenda behind it. Peterson is key because he really did and does see this Canadian as both a centrist and an intellectual. My friend still sees himself as a liberal as defined against the 'radical left' he sees elsewhere in London.

London is so culturally liberal that it is possible to see it as post racist. So political alienation from 'woke' culture has something to do with it.

Other right-wing people I've met do fit the mould of angry outsider. I think that archetype is true but not in this case.

@Burnley123 I would find losing a friend to that framed thinking very distressing, sorry you experienced it
@Burnley123 I understand. Whatever criticisms there may be about 鈥渨oke鈥 culture, Peterson or other more obvious right wingers will inevitably lead one to wrong conclusions about those issues.

For the fact he views the swimsuit model as manipulation is just kind of bizarre, she has a body that is normal so what's being manipulated? I don't get it.
Twitter is where peoples minds go to atrophy...I think Petersen has said most of what he had to say before almost dying in Russia! Authoritarian tolerance ..pfft indeed
The right wing's sole intellectual has been reduced to this #sad
Burnley12341-45, M
@deadgerbil Indeed. He reduced himself to this. Frauden Peterson.
@Burnley123 on the bright side, we have buddick, dippyjoe, Horace, and sporter on here to fill the intellectual void left by Peterson's fall from grace
Burnley12341-45, M
@deadgerbil It almost feels like an insult to them
RylanTheHusker26-30, M
He just needs Antifa to beat him up.
Burnley12341-45, M
@RylanTheHusker Enough of your sexual fantasies. This is a political debate.
RylanTheHusker26-30, M
@Burnley123 fair enough.
firefall61-69, M
@Burnley123 wait, politics isnt a sexual fantasy ? 馃槀

He got that first wave of popularity by being a little controversial. And like an out of control addict he's trying to chase that high again finding it harder and harder to get it. And his attempts to reach it are just bringing everything crumbling down around him.

Kind of tragic, really.
Why does the reporter seem to be taking glee? It's an op-ed piece full of emotionally laden. I care upon what is being spoken about, but I am tired of listening to *any* side of *any* story be used laden bait for clickbait. And yes there is the usual thing to be noted here, along with views, a man making issue of what a man expressed about a woman.
@thewindupbirdchronicles Seemed pretty balanced to me.
@Human1000 in a world self serving. I was done at the moment he started with smirking.
Burnley12341-45, M
@thewindupbirdchronicles um ok. Thanks for sharing.
What a schmuck.

You'd think he'd know better. But no.

Sorry about that. My idiot phone doesn't take dictation very well.

@LordShadowfire [quote]ou'd think he'd know better.[/quote]

I don't know why. I want the right to have one decent intellectual. One. It would seem to balance the world somehow,

@BetweenKittensandRiots The paranoa is epic.

The woke Stasi go around telling Jordan Peterson he has to get hard looking at a plus-sized model and ban him from wanking Kendall Jenner. Because post-modern neo-marxism. 馃槀馃槀馃槀
