Jordan Peterson Reveals His Hopes for the Midterm Elections, Defends President Trump

He hit the nail on the head.

Published

The ever popular psychology professor and modern day speaker of concrete truths, Jordan Peterson, recently came to the defense of President Donald Trump, stating that during his time in office he’s made some positive headway.

Peterson, who is originally from Canada not only backed the president, but also delivered a rather harsh message to the Democratic Party, stating that he hopes they get “walloped” in the midterm elections.

Peterson, who has been on a tour promoting his best-selling book, “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos,” made the remarks at a packed house at The Cambridge Union in the United Kingdom.

“I’m hoping the Democrats get walloped,” Peterson told Innes-Smith ahead of his address at the Union, adding that he believes the party is determined to appeal to a “tiny radical faction of the voter base.”

“I don’t think they’re going to wake up until they get defeated,” he added.

Peterson went on to discuss Trump and said that it’s nothing short of absurd to call Trump “far-right.”

“It’s ridiculous to label Trump as far-right; he’s certainly an anomaly,” Peterson said. “As a personality, he’s more of a libertarian. He’s not a traditional Republican, and he’s certainly not a traditional right-wing figure apart from the fact that he has this large populist base.”

Peterson went on to express his disgust with folks who are trying to use Trump as a scapegoat for the recent Tree of Life synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh.

“We should leave the racist label to people who deserve it,” Peterson warned, “otherwise, we debase the currency. Once everyone’s a racist, well — that’s the end of that as a useful epithet.”

The bestselling author also stated that he couldn’t understand why President Trump has become such a controversial figure and so hated by folks in the United States. He hypothesized that it might have something to do with the fact that Trump is wealthy.

“The one thing the intellectual elite will never understand is that if you are poor you can become rich, but if you are not part of the establishment elite, you will never become part of it,” Peterson explained.

“Wages are rising, unemployment is down to levels not seen since the early Sixties and the economy is growing at a phenomenal rate,” Peterson said. “Trump is noisy and bombastic and he has a narcissistic edge, but he certainly hasn’t turned out to be the absolute disaster that his enemies predicted. He’s even making headway in North Korea.”

Peterson is clearly a smart man and a much needed voice of reason in the world of academia that has sold common sense down the river in exchange for an ideology that is both immoral and unsustainable.

Here’s to hoping he continues to challenge young and old alike to apply a little critical thinking to their current worldview.

Video: Biden Can Put the ‘World Back Together,’ Says Failed POTUS Candidate John Kerry

Oh, is that right?

John Kerry failed as a presidential candidate and was arguably the worst secretary of state in modern times. That being said, Joe Biden apparently loves the guy. Go figure. At a recent event in Iowa, Kerry said something that nobody should say about any person – ever. Kerry said Biden can put the “world back together.” And yes, he was absolutely dead serious. WATCH: John Kerry: “Iowa, when you caucus in February, don’t just send a message. Send us a president. Send us a man who can put the world back together. Send us Joe Biden.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1203035127166775296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203035127166775296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fjohn-kerry-joins-joe-biden-on-iowa-bus-tour-kerry-touts-biden-as-messianic-figure-who-can-save-the-world-video%2F Kerry clearly takes “stupid is as stupid does” to an entirely different level. The guy is just…I don’t know. It’s comical. From earlier that day… Question: “Mr. Vice President, how does it feel to have your friend with you?” Joe Biden: “It feels great to have my friend with me, I can’t think of anybody I’d rather have.” John Kerry: “I’m thrilled to be back in Iowa. I love it.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1203019020959510528?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203019020959510528&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F12%2Fjohn-kerry-joins-joe-biden-on-iowa-bus-tour-kerry-touts-biden-as-messianic-figure-who-can-save-the-world-video%2F If Biden is committing a gaffe, he’s not breathing. The guy thrives on making mistakes. The former VP recently did his best to explain the Second Amendment to his incredibly uninformed fanbase. He blabbered, “I believe in the second amendment but nobody says you can have a rounds — a magazine with a hundred clips in it — a hundred bullets in it. We protect geese more that we protect, no joke, you can only have three shotgun shells when you go shoot for geese. But, guess what, we protect geese better than we do our kids.” WATCH: [email protected] in New Hampshire: “We don’t have the courage to take on the NRA? We protect geese more than we protect, no joke you can only have 3 shotgun shells when you go shooting…

New York Police Officer Bites Into Sandwich, Finds a Razor Blade Stuffed In Between

Oh my goodness!!

There’s a 99% chance that this incident was 100% intentional. A person doesn’t just accidentally leave a razor blade right in the middle of a friggin’ sandwich. Who are we kidding? Is this not, if you really think about it, attempted murder? Shouldn’t it be treated that way, if proven the sandwich maker did what he or she did intentionally? What a shame. Why would anyone even want to be a police officer these days? It’s a lose-lose situation, with the mainstream media and Democrats constantly finding ways to tear them down. Thankfully, there still are brave men and women who are determined to uphold the rule of law and do their best to keep all of us safe. From New York Daily News: An NYPD cop got a sharp surprise when he bit into a sandwich at a Queens shop and cut his mouth on a rusty razor blade stuffed inside, police said. […] The cop, a 24-year veteran of the NYPD, cut the inside of his mouth on the razor as he chomped on the cheesesteak. He was taken to Nassau Community Medical Center for a minor wound. PHOTO: You have to be a special kind of person to support Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Of course, “special kind of person” can be substituted for ignorant – and should be. AOC supporters aren’t bright, plain and simple. Why this freshman Democrat continues to receive so much attention makes little sense, but she just keeps doing anti-American things and getting away with it. God willing, a conservative will end her political career come next November. Check out her latest ridiculousness, via New York Post: Close to a thousand anti-police protesters descended on Downtown Brooklyn Friday night, blocking traffic, vandalizing a city bus and shouting obscene insults at NYPD cops. The demonstration…
