The Problem With: Colleges & Universities (Jordan B Peterson Responds To Hitler Comparison)



there are a lot of problems in the world today but we're gonna focus on the problem in colleges and universities okay so by proxy me showing you video I'm transphobic and I call it star violence so in the past few years we've seen an up rise of triggered trannies and safe space needing snowflakes invading college campuses all across Canada in the United States attempting the monitor regulates and ultimately control the actions of the public through collectively shaming ideas and leading online harassment campaigns through the efforts of the social justice warriors they've effectively created an echo chamber of ideas that have very little validity when taken outside of their philosophical context and applied to modern society colleges and universities have long been renowned as the birthplace of modern ideas and intellectual debate they are synonymous with controversial studies and pushing the boundaries of philosophical analysis the idea that any idea is too dangerous to be given a platform debated and then ultimately torn down is something that could only be thought of in 2017 throughout the past few years there's been a heightened sense of irrationality when it comes to dealing with confrontation the current mindset seems to be that there are some subjects such as race and IQ or the links between biology and sex that are so dangerous that if we were to have an intellectual conversation with them that the results would be so damaging to people that it would ultimately do more harm than good with this we often see the active suppression and ultimately the silencing of ideas that don't necessarily fit the current mainstream academic agenda you can go on YouTube and find videos of students speaking out about the absolutely disgusting ways that they've been treated for merely questioning the narratives being spewed out by these indoctrinating professors instead of engaging in an intellectual debate these professors usually get hyper emotional and enact an authoritarian rage which consists of degrading slurs childish behavior and what I would consider a complete abuse of power and these are your authority figures these are the people that are teaching your children how to be these bigoted self-loathing hood rats that you see marching around in the streets with the Communist flags waving a hammer and sickle streaming in people's faces Nazis go home to anybody who's right of Karl Marx they have no problem enacting violence to prevent certain ideas because they've been taught that emotional distress is equivalent to physical violence and therefore is justified this belief is confirmed every time a student's who's a professor shut down another student for applying any amount of critical thinking instead of opening up the conversation and tackling it head-on by shutting down the conversation you say that the subject that's being talked about is so unbelievably demonstrable that it cannot even be spoken up I understand that a lot of these schools are publicly funded and need to uphold a certain level of morality and ethics such as creating a space that's free of racial gender or sexual discrimination but the degree to which these schools are going to shelter these young adults from controversial subjects is borderline irresponsible often we see one of two things happening in schools today the youth have been taught to embrace a culture of fear and self-loathing they have been taught that the society that their ancestors helped build that they grew up in and now ultimately live in is built off of a systemic Lee racist homophobic misogynist patriarchy it needs to be completely dismantled this either leads to a boiling point of civil unrest like we saw at Evergreen State University in Washington where students essentially created a lynch mob held faculty members hostage and created an absolutely unbelievable list of demands including pizza while they waited for the demands to be done all because a white professor decided to write an email voicing his opinions on a current racial issue that was happening at the school or we get an increased role authoritarianism like we just saw wilfred laurier in Waterloo Ontario a TA by the name of Lindsay Shepard decided to show her class a video clip of Jordan Peterson who was a well-known professor at the University of Toronto and is now an even more well-known social figure the debate was of a clip that aired on TV Oh which is a large network in Canada it's literally called TV Ontario it features a debate between Peterson and a colleague over gender pronouns I'll play the clip now but I'll warn you it's bad asking us to lay the case Oh what now what is it you find offensive about this legislation well fundamentally there were two things that really bothered me although there have been other things I've thought about since one was that I was being asked as everyone is to use a certain set of words that I think are the constructions of people who have a political ideology that I don't believe in that I also regard is as dangerous what are those words those are the made-up words to read that that people now describe as as gender-neutral and so to me they're they're they're they're an attempt to control language and in a direction that isn't happening organically it's not happening naturally people aren't picking up these words in the typical way that new words are picked up but by force and by Fiat and I would say by force because there's legislative power behind them so it's like these made-up words Z and xur and that sort of thing what about the they're not all made up where it quote-unquote made up words for example they is one of them yeah but we speak to an individual's they right but we can't dispense with the distinction between singular and plural I don't want to give you the opportunity to speak to whether or not you are a transphobic well I can tell you that I've received more letters from transsexual people supporting me than opposing me and I never said anything really about transsexual people about their existence although that was the first thing that I was accused of doing I didn't say that transsexual people didn't exist I said that gender identity gender expression and biological sex do not vary independently which they don't and so all this issue is in some sense only peripherally about about transsexual issues it's more essentially about gender issues and then on top of that and I think it's the biggest issue is is that it's a free speech issue in other words besides man and woman there are 29 other gender expressions for example pan gender queer gender gender fluid crossdresser by gendered gender blender and the list goes on and Nicholas this is where I want to bring you into the discussion because you teach this you teach trans studies so if you would give us a brief primer on so many gender identities that in your view require non-traditional pronouns basically it's not correct that there is such a thing as biological sex and I'm a historian of medicine I can unpack that for you at great length if you want but in the interest of time I won't so that's a very popular misconception so essentially when in my transgender Studies classes what we're doing is looking at actual research and identifying ways that current social issues related to trans people or things that are associated with trans such as free speech arguments and claims how that connects to the way that people are thinking the way that research has been framed the histories or some of the other pronouns that one would hear typically I don't focus on pronouns because pronouns are actually part of a cistern or motive culture so what we do is learn about I'm gonna stop you right there yes I'm just about to explain good so we don't start from a sister normative perspective because that can't actually go very far does just normative mean so I'm gonna start us there this normative is basically the very popular idea an assumption that most people probably have and definitely that our structures convey that there is such a thing as male and female that they connect to being a girl or a boy or a man or a woman and then sometimes that will also recognize intersex or trans people or transsexual people as you mentioned because that's sometimes also referred to as a gender binary so anything that fits within a gender binary can work with insist normativity oh but since normativity is basically that everyone assumes that there is male and female and so very little is actually looked at to understand what's actually the case and scientists have been doing this for yeah your view would be it's much more complicated than that right it's not my view I just know that for over 50 years scientists have shown that that's not true and yet our social systems haven't been able to find a way to address the level of complexity that people actually experienced Eve stand by for a second because I want to let everybody else get in first and I will get to a deal either so and that means and people are always looking for new tools to operate in the world and if you invent a good tool like a new word then people will pick it up just as fast as they possibly can you really see that in English but the words that are being required now are not good tools and that's why people aren't using them and so instead what we have is the use of force despite the fact that that's being denied although we've already established that at least in the opinion of one of the people on this panel I'm already guilty of a hate crime which is what I said I was guilty of when I made that video well Steve the issue with the law is quite straightforward the government is responding is requiring us to use certain language that's not the same as not using certain language and it's a line and this is the fundamental issue this is maybe the fundamental issue that's a line we should not cross we should not allow the government to decide which words were allowed to use it's a mistake and it's a mistake that strikes right at the heart of free speech and the thing about free speech is that it's not their right to criticize your leaders which is what people usually characterize it as is freedom of speech is freedom to engage in the processes that we use to formulate the problems in our society to generate solutions to them and reach a consensus it's actually a mechanism it's not just another value and you should put constraints on free speech with the most extreme caution because you interfere with people's ability to think and communicate apparently after multiple people complained about the viewing Shepard was brought before what can only be described as an Orwellian nightmarish ethics tribunal of wilfred laurier university thankfully Lindsey Shepard was able to secretly record some of the conversation that happened that day here's some of the week Dottie Oh from what was set aside meeting sorry what did I violate in that policy um so gender-based violence transphobia and causing harm to trans students by bringing their identity as invalid or their pronouns as invalid or something potentially invalid so I caused harm which a but under the Ontario Human Rights Code it protected thing and also something that laurie equals as a value that might have been seen as problematic by by some of the students maybe even threatening um I don't I don't see how someone would rationally think it was threatening I I could see how it might challenge their existing ideas but for me that's that's the spirit of the university is challenging ideas that you already have the thing is can you shield people from those ideas am I supposed to comfort them and make sure that they are insulated away from this like is that what the point of this is because to me that is so against what a university is about so against it I was not taking sides I was presenting both arguments so the thing is about this is if you're presenting something like this it you have to think about the kind of teaching climate that you're creating and this is actually these arguments are counter to the Canadian Human Rights Code ever since I know that you talked about c16 ever since this past it is discriminatory to be targeting someone due to their gender identity or gender expression so bringing something like that up in class not critically and I understand that you're trying to like it was critical why I introduced it critically how some like I said like I said I it was in the spirit of debate okay in the spirit of the debate is slightly different than being like okay this is this is like a problematic idea that we won me let me want to unpack but that's taking sides it's like it's taking sides for me to be like oh look at this guy like everything that comes out his mouth is BS but we're gonna watch anyway okay so I understand the position they are coming from and your positionality but the reality is that it is created a toxic climate for some of the students hey you know how many it's great oh how many okay one yeah my speech is one or multiple students who have come forward saying that this is something that they were concerned about and that it made them uncomfortable you're perfectly welcome your own opinions but when you're bringing it into the context of the classroom that can become problematic and that can become something that is that creates an unsafe learning environment for students but when they leave the university they're gonna be exposed to these ideas so I don't see how I'm doing a disservice to the class by exposing them to ideas that are really out there and I'm sorry I'm crying I'm stressed out because this to me is so wrong so I know that it does generate violence I think just include sexual violence but it also includes targeting folks based on gender so that includes transphobia biphobia homophobia all those sorts of things are protected under the policy and so those are things that Laurie has upheld as values as well as the Ontario Human Rights Code and so those are things that real responsible for not impacting our students in that way I'm not um not spreading transphobia okay so what I have a problem with is I didn't target anybody who did I target how by telling them ideas that are really out there by telling them that by telling time really it's it's not just telling them in legitimizing this as a valid perspective as this is another valid perspective in a university it's all perspectives are going that's not necessarily true and well this this is something that's being debated in current society and I don't feel the need to shield people from what's going on in society like okay to imagine that this is happening in university it's just bad like the thing is like I don't see what's transphobic about showing a video during Peterson he's a real person he's out there he is a real person but he is a real person who has engaged in targeted behavior that are targeting of trans students in the particular like like basically daxing them if you know the term like giving out their personal information so that there will be a harassed so that death threats will find them this is something that he has done to his own students he has done to other students and this is also something that the students are aware of so this is this is basically like playing not to kind of do the thing where everything is kind of compared to Hitler but it's like neutrally playing a speech bye-bye Hitler or Miley innopolis from gamergate this is the kind of thing that departmentally in terms of like critical communication studies and in terms of the course of what we're trying to do is diametrically opposed to everything that we've been talking about in the lectures that's after that one really got to give it to you Lindsay Shepard you had a good head on your shoulders props to you for sticking it in there laying down your ground as for the man relating Jordan Peterson to Hitler this would be funny if it didn't have real-world implications Peterson is a prominent social figure who has a large following and a lot of public support the ideas he is challenging and the debates he is having are being heard in the public sphere when you start sheltering students from experience in the realities of society to create a space where none of their ideas are challenged you create a generation of people who are unable to mentally cope with the world around them these professors have been stuck in an echo chamber some of them upwards of 20 years they're in their own reality if you think that they can prepare you for the real world you're sadly mistaken in light of all that I'm gonna leave you with Jordan Peterson's response to being compared to Hitler this is something to really pay attention to told her that by showing the video to her Canadian communication in context class it was basically like neutrally playing speech by Hitler I don't know what to say about that really you know although I don't find it I don't find it amusing and I don't take any pleasure in its satiric irony you know because it'd be easy to market you know but it's too serious as tomorrow it's it's not music it's not the least for the music it's so hyperbolic that it actually deal ingenta Mises the horror that people feel for a figure s absolutely reprehensible as Adolf Hitler you don't use that sort of thing passionately you don't use the name of someone who caused the death of millions of people in the most brutal possible manner as a casual insult to fortify your your belief in your ideological purity and your moral virtue it's it's a as far as I'm concerned the only way you can describe that sort of thing is as a sin it's not acceptable it's as simple as that well if you liked what you saw why don't you go ahead and sub it's free and follow me on Twitter at Maine Coon also been live-streaming some game play with my brothers here at twitch comm slash the elderberries got a patreon if you feel like hooking a brother up also let me know how you feel about this you know I like to keep the debate going on this channel so until next time be your own hero kids

    Well done. You are obviously more aware than many of your age-mates. Obviously way more intelligent than average. I certainly hope that you continue to speak in public ( or making videos ); you are already a good voice, and with some more education and practice you may become a great voice.

    To encourage your growth in speaking, I recommend the video works of Benjamin A. Boyce, whose videos are about state of education, especially regarding the unpleasantness at Evergreen College, which he witnessed ( as a returning mature student ), and whose latest videos are about Lindsay Shepard and the mess at Wilfred Laurier University. His videos are of great interest to anyone concerned with the effect that the virtual takeover of the humanities, sociology and especially gender studies faculties by Social Justice/Feminist/Post Modernist/Marxist ideas is having on campuses these days. His skill at conveying ideas makes listening to him a great pleasure, as well as very informative. His You-Tube channel is BenjaminABoyce.

    Best of luck to you and to all of us.

    What Ms Shepherd was subject to was nothing short of psychological abuse. It was utterly disgraceful.

    Thanks for this. Laurier has opened people's eyes to the reality of what's going on and how pervasive it is. These types have no interest in individual rights or freedom or liberation or dignity. They're after control. Videos like yours give us the tools (and courage) to push back against this craziness.

    The enemy is trying a different tack. This is the craziest one yet, and it appeals to the mentally ill.  I can only pity these children.  They are psychologically disturbed and confused, and no one is helping them.  They are simply being told that they are alright and everyone else is the problem.  It's similar to someone with an appendicitis being told they are fine and to go on with their life–it will all be better when you are dead.

    Sweet Jesus, are these people from Laurier for real? Please, someone, anyone, tell me this is a parody. All is lost, if these are the people society has chosen to run our universities. In fact, society is doomed unless these ideologically psychotic cretins aren't immediately removed from any and all positions of power. What I just heard is literally unbelievable in any sane context, and that ridiculous inquisition setting Shepard was forced to withstand is truly an Orwellian nightmare come to life. Comparing Peterson to Hitler? Disgusting. Does anyone know if the people responsible for this nonsense are facing any sort of retribution? Sickening.

    Not that long ago if someone gave you a hard time about using "correct" gender pronouns that person would be told to "beat it, nutjob" Now there are forces at work to make the world cater to their narrow, questionable reality. These people are deranged. They can do what they want but don't expect others to engage in their fantasies.

    I think 4Chan and Buzzfeed took the college board for a ride, like a sheep stuck in a fence.  They started to pull crap off of Twitter to justifying the disapproval of Peterson.  Facts and science mean nothing to these people, but when talking about climate change there science is unquestionable-Priceless.

    I often wondered why men have nipples , I have my strange ideas , but for anyone to get so angry as to target or shut the debate down on any discussion about any topic in a school is not teaching a student to be a productive individual and is proubly the reason there is so much confustion in our society today ,

    Universities should be advertising themselves as DANGEROUS PLACES – enrol if you dare! Come along and have your current world views and assumptions challenged! Meet lots of people from different walks of life, be unsettled and provoked as you freely exchange ideas and experiences together! Be prepared to be stretched, turned inside out and upside down! Leave at the end, stronger, more able to make sense of the world around you, more able to spot weak arguments, more skilful and adept with your written and spoken communications skills! THE FAINT HEARTED NEED NOT APPLY! NO SAFE SPACES!

    Feminists are irrational and crazy. These people are all about feelings or anti logic. This is what happens when women are allowed to have power with no responsibility. This craziness will end very badly, for women. Men will just adapt hence mgtow.
