JBP is a tenured Canadian professor and clinical psychologist. Calm and reserved with a collosal verbal IQ, he has a big cult following amongst right leaning people and serves as a father figure for many. He doles out sage advice on how to not be a complete f****t
In 2016 Canada decided to make it illegal to not refer to trannies by their preferred pronoun, direct policing of language that should alarm anyone whose diet does not consist primarily of leaded paint. It didn't alarm many people in Canada though and JBP was one of the few to speak out against it. Coming out as Hitler in this way was what first bought him to prominence for many.
He talks about the lunacy of the Canadian bill among various other topics on his first Joe Rogan appearance where thankfully Rogan shuts the f**k
Here he is dealing with the fallout:
Perhaps surprisingly for a Canadian professor, Peterson is also a devout Christian and has done extensive lectures on the Bible where he applies his love of Jungean archetypes to various Biblical stories:
He's regarded by many as "right wing" or "alt right" but has denied these labels and spoken at length about the dangers of ideology. He has naturally aligned with the right due to the left's infantilism and insanity and his willingness to point this out. He is primarily anti-left and frequency talks on the dangers of Leftism and Postmodernism, placing the Soviet Gulag alongside the Holocaust on equal terms and comparing compelled speech laws with Marxism.
pman in chat:
This is exactly the point. Spencer is a Leftist caricature of what they think the average right winger is like, he does no favours for anyone on our side. Neither Peterson nor Damore are overtly right wing, they are anti-left wing. Peterson can do more in one 30 minute interview to wake people up to the insanity that surrounds them than anything a Nazi-larping f****t
As an example of how Peterson is a Leftism antiretroviral for society: Lindsay Shepherd, a teaching assisant at Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario was teaching some bullshit course about gender or gays or whatever. She played a clip of Peterson questioning the need for 73 different gender pronouns followed by a clip of someone defending the idea, the point being that the students should consider both sides to form an opinion. In Canadian universities this is a faux pas on the same level as not wearing rainbow socks at the daily fag parade and she was quickly hauled up before her superiors to explain her egregious actions.
She secretly recorded the interview that you can listen to here, she crys a bit but overall does a great job arguing her side:
The story blew up and eventually the university president apologised to her:
I imagine that Shepard's career is effectively over but her sacrifice forced the Left to back off and be more cautious in future. They overreached and were firmly put back in line. Modern "conservatism" for a long time has never pushed back hard enough and the left has always gained ground when they overreached. The way that Peterson awakens people to this need to push back hard is invaluable.
