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?

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

Published

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
