Feminist Labels Jordan Peterson a “White Nationalists” and “Incel.” Peterson Responds.

Don’t these people have significantly bigger fish to fry than a Canadian clinical psychologist?

Published

Jordan Peterson is a rising star among conservative intellectuals, and despite his incredibly articulate arguments and vast knowledge base of his field, clinical psychology, many on the left find it more convenient to just throw catchphrase leftist insults at him than fire up the brainpower required to critically assess his incredibly nuanced viewpoints.

Such was the case with one angry feminist professor, who recklessly, not to mention baselessly, attacked Peterson as a “committed white nationalist” and a “misogynist incel”, the latter which is particularly preposterous, as Peterson is married with children and “incel” means “involuntary celibate”, a name used by an offshoot of men’s rights activists who are upset they’re not having more sexual encounters with the opposite sex.

The Daily Wire explains this kind of inflammatory mischaracterization of anyone slightly on the right is right up this woman’s alley, as a left-wing professor:

The professor, Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania philosophy professor Wendy Lynne Lee, maintains a bibliography of people she claims are “white nationalists,” among them Peterson, Shapiro, David Horowitz, Dave Rubin, and Ann Coulter, TheDC reports.

Though the feminist professor wasn’t willing to preserve her tweet for posterity, she did offer TheDC some follow-up comments on Peterson.

“Jordan Peterson is, as Grant Maxwell puts it beautifully, an ‘intellectual misogynist,'” she told TheDC. “Maxwell shows that Peterson’s reading of Carl Jung is a gross misinterpretation for the sake of pandering to an essentialist and patriarchal worldview: ‘He evidently wants to return to unquestioned patriarchy by paradoxically claiming that “the idea that women were oppressed throughouthistory is an appalling theory.”‘ This is an insidious sleight-of-hand in which, by denying that patriarchal oppression ever existed, men can continue to ignore what many women have been saying for centuries.”

In other words, “anyone who doesn’t agree with me is a big fat meanie!” But isn’t this just the kind of language we’ve gotten used to from liberal professors?

It may be, but according to Peterson, as someone who considers herself an academic, Lee should be ashamed of herself. He was not amused with her tweet, and expertly dismantled her entirely untrue statements in a comment to The Daily Caller:

“It’s clear that [Lee] has decided that it’s entirely acceptable to be careless with her words in relationship to me and my putative beliefs,” he said. “Academics, whose trade-in-stock is words, should know better. She clearly believes (1) that her ill-advised statements are warranted, which they are not, and (2) that such actions, however ill-advised, are acceptable, ethically and factually.”

He continued: “It appears that she is taking her lead from articles like the recent New York Times piece that mischaracterized my views on monogamy. It is not obvious at all where she has acquired the evidence for my existence as a ‘white nationalist source,’ since no such evidence whatsoever exists anywhere. I would counsel those who wish to bring forward such groundless accusations to be duly cautious. Such shots in the dark have a nasty habit of backfiring.”

It is true that when one wants to attack their intellectual opponents, it would certainly be much more effective to stick to the facts instead of fabricate labels because they sound good to SJWs.

But that’s just the problem with these labels the left loves to throw around, they don’t seem to care too much whether or not “racist” “sexist” “homophobic” “misogynist” or “committed white nationalist” is an appropriate title for the person who’s ideas they object to, and this is a very big mistake to make.

The more we throw these labels around, the less they will have any meaning. And if it is still truly wrong to be racist/sexist/misogynist/etc., don’t these people have significantly bigger fish to fry than a Canadian clinical psychologist?

They do–in many non-Western nations across the country in which women still live in the virtual dark ages. But if we pointed that out, we’d just get called “Islamaphobic”, now, wouldn’t we?

Ocasio-Cortez Says Democrat Party Is A ‘Center-Conservative Party’ — Not A ‘Left Party’

Yes, she actually said these words…

Of all the absolutely ridiculous thoughts that come from the lips of freshman Democrat Socialist lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), this sentence might just take the cake. Actually, it might just take the entire bakery. It’s as if AOC literally said the sun is the moon and the moon doesn’t exist. It is that stunning and blatantly ignorant. You know, it’s almost as if AOC legitimately has no clue about what she speaks. I wonder how liberals will feel about this. See for yourself, via Washington Examiner: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the Democratic Party leans to the right of the political center. She said, “We don’t have a left party in the United States. The Democratic Party is not a left party. The Democratic Party is a center or center-conservative party.” AOC added, “We can’t even get a floor vote on Medicare for All, not even a floor vote that gets voted down. So, this is not a left party. There are a lot of true believers that we can ‘capitalism’ our way out of poverty in the Democratic Party. If anything, that’s probably the majority.” Reactions: https://twitter.com/bpjauburn/status/1219422563883016198?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219422563883016198&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/ericsaid691/status/1219420015402856448?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219420015402856448&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/thecheesefeed/status/1219397437837545473?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219397437837545473&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/kalel1324/status/1219376539583774723?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219376539583774723&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/MrSagacious/status/1219432046021500929?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219432046021500929&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/NickKnox8/status/1219385743623249920?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219385743623249920&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/mckenney1971/status/1219430553113501696?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219430553113501696&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F President Ocasio-Cortez, anyone? Apparently, the far-left radical thinks about the idea. Could there be anything scarier for America? During a podcast interview, AOC admitted she thinks about running for POTUS “every once in a while.” AOC spoke with Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast Sunday about a variety of issues, and the conversation eventually turned to her thoughts on the 2020 election and her own sights for higher office. AOC: “I don’t know, I really don’t know,” the freshman congresswoman said of her next steps in politics. “I think about it every once in a while but […] this is pretty hard already.” LISTEN: https://twitter.com/SkullduggeryPod/status/1117777587110129671?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1117777587110129671&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.theamericanmirror.com%2Focasio-cortez-every-once-in-a-while-thinks-about-running-for-president-says-biden-doesnt-particularly-animate-her%2F H/T: Twitchy

Jim Jordan & 7 Other House Conservatives Named to Trump’s Impeachment Team [Details]

How will Dems respond to this?

John Salvatore

Published

on

Reps. Jim Jordan (OH) and Lee Zeldin (NY) are two of the seven House Republicans appointed to President Trump’s impeachment team. Who are the other five? Let’s get into it, via The Hill: The White House announced Monday that President Trump appointed several prominent Republican House members to advise his impeachment defense team ahead of the Senate trial set to begin this week. GOP Reps. Jim Jordan (Ohio), John Ratcliffe Texas), Mike Johnson (La.), Mark Meadows (N.C.), Debbie Lesko (Ariz.), Lee Zeldin (N.Y.), Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) and Doug Collins are set to play leading roles. Continued: A statement from the White House said the lawmakers “have provided guidance to the White House team, which was prohibited from participating in the proceedings concocted by Democrats in the House of Representatives” throughout the House proceedings and would continue to do so in the Senate. At this rate, no matter how hard the left tries, it would appear Trump has 2020 all but in the bag. Great for America, bad for the left. But what’s bad in the eyes of the left is usually good for the left – they just can’t see it. Liberals. SMH. BREAKING: New leaked video from inside CNN: President Jeff Zucker tells employees to push “impeachment” and that all of CNN’s stories should be about “moves towards impeachment” One of CNN’s employees says Zucker has a “personal vendetta against Trump” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1183780647522856960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183780647522856960&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F435181-project-veritas-video-cnns-jeff-zucker-directing-employees-to-push-impeachment%2F WATCH: Democrat Rep. Al Green says the impeachment of @realDonaldTrump is needed “to deal with slavery.” MSNBC’s Alex Witt “mmhhhmms” throughout the clip in agreement. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1203420159639277573?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203420159639277573&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fdemocrat-congressman-al-green-trump-must-be-impeached-to-deal-with-slavery Let them keep thinking Trump should be impeached. Let’s see how that plays out for them. As we’ve seen so far, it’s not going well. In fact, it’s going very poorly.
