Good.

In other news, this kind of content was a-ok on YouTube until today. And would still be considered acceptable if Trump's polling numbers were better.

Better late than never, I suppose. Have they dropped the banhammer on Felix yet?

"Today's deplatforming bandwagon".

Ahem.

"Removals For Terms Of Service Violations".

Fixed that for you.

So the hate chat platforms are throwing off the worst offenders until the hate boat floats again.  Is that it?

So?  I'd rather they did the good for bad reasons than wait until they are saints to stop doing the evil.

This is the worst oppression of anybody ever. EVER!

That's great. Now can they stop it with the Prager U. ,Epoch Times or those "Do You Approve of Donald Trump? ads, ffs.

I'll kind of miss Molyneux. He was so profoundly dumb and cruel.

 And there will be people who confuse this with 1st amendment protections. Those same people will also ignore that same amendment when it comes to promoting religion in public schools.

Deplatforming? Is that the thing when you get your arm stuck in a printing press?

I don't think it's matters if they were to ban Peterson since I think his days of speaking on camera or in public are over. He got addicted to benzos,went to Russia for a treatment that involved a medically induced coma and had some seizures.

What a bold move, removing some washed up has-beens, that no one listens to any more.

Google is no doubt watching Facebook bleed advertisers---finally.  Google wants that youtube adsense money to keep rolling in.  If this is the only way that's finally going to get corporations to do something than ok.  All conservatives and lolLibertarians should love this solution as it is free market.

Really? I only watched Jordan Peterson once just to see what was all the hubbub. Seemed like a thoroughly rational guy getting attacked by some unhinged accusatory feminists over the question whether a trans person with a weenie is a woman.

Corrupt them both. Those religious college chick get freaky. Haven't you ever seen "Catholic High School Girls in Trouble?" That's all the proof you need right there.

I don't give a tinker's fark about YouTube's motives. A step forward is a step forward.
Waiting for a big business to be 100% altruistic is setting yourself up for a lifetime of disappointment.

Someone should explain to him that wearing a robe and being too handsy with young boys doesn't make him Socrates.

I'm still utterly fascinated by the complete lack of digging that the MSM did into Spencer's (ex?) wife.  I know in the grand scheme of things, it really doesn't matter... but maybe something could be learned for the future.

I learned in life that it takes an open mind and patience to listen to people without being judgemental, and not call people morons who don't agree 100% lockstep with my beliefs.

Too bad his polling numbers are in the shiatter with the rest of the Republicans.

Right where they ought to be.  "Both sides are bad" has been true on and off through history but we're currently smack in the middle of "Republicans refuse to defend America against present threats including their own President".  That's a bit different.

Wow, it has been a great couple of weeks for assholes getting shown the door. Hopefully they all take their swastika-emblazoned balls and go home to Parler or Gab or Voat and hang out in their farty little echo chambers.

And with an open mind and patience I have watched him. And seeing him stone-faced tell Matt Dillahunty he isn't an atheist, that was a breaking point for me. The man redefines words to make his beliefs true, regardless of the implications

Peterson hides his fascism and racism better than others, but there's times when it comes through, like when he was together with Stefan Molyneux and agreed with Molyneux that blacks and Hispanics have naturally lower IQs than white people.

A Terrible Human: Jordan Peterson


Apparently he's back. From Wikipedia:

In January 2020, Peterson, his daughter Mikhaila and her husband flew to Russia for a course of detox. He was diagnosed with pneumonia in both lungs upon arrival and was put into a coma for eight days. Peterson spent four weeks in the intensive care unit, and had "neurological damage from the benzodiazepines". He experienced a temporary loss of motor skills and muteness.[141][142]
In June 2020 Peterson penned a 3,000 word essay for the National Post in support of Tomas Hudlicky, whom he felt had been victimized by cancel culture activists. Peterson lamented a perceived demise of meritocracy and a corresponding elevation of identity politics in the hard sciences, as well as a perceived worsening of hiring standards in academia more broadly.[143]

Ed Grubermann: Visual Howlaround Title Sequence: Now ban Jordan Peterson.

Isn't he suffering brain damage from a medically induced coma?


Yes.

Ban him anyway. I want him to suffer even more. And his followers, who are some of the most toxic gasbags I have ever encountered. And that's up against some serious competition.
