Don't know who he is, but if you're crying about the company that pays your salary making money, then just farking quit and go do something else.

Is he out of the hospital in Russia? I hear his benzo addiction really farked him up.

Maybe if he sobered up he wouldn't be such a dick

Is there a place for someone like Jordan Peterson in the world of the far right now?  After all, his whole deal was giving people ways to be white supremacists without sounding like white supremacists.  Now people in that sphere don't really care and they just go ahead and be openly white supremacist.  They don't need an explainer like Jordan Peterson.

So I'v e been hearing this guy's name a lot lately, and I absolutely refuse to do any real investigation of my own to form my own opinion. Can someone tell me if I should hate this guy or not, and why? Thanks FARK, you're the greatest.

Ah, the good ole 'if you don't like it then leave' that dumb conservatives are known for. How about speak up for the marginalized and push for change where you are rather than cowarding out?

BTW, how's your guy's recount and election lawsuits going? Are you still holding on to the Qanon delusion that Trump will be inaugurated again in January?

The 500 books they are going to sell to basement dwellers aren't worth the reputation costs. Right off the bat, I'm going to think twice about buying a book published by them. The clothbound penguins were looking nice too.

"people were crying in the meeting about how Jordan Peterson has affected their lives"

Unless he ran over one of their children driving drunk one night, my guess would be not at all.  But this would definitely not be the first time liberals started crying over nothing, so I don't doubt it's true.
 
2020-11-25 3:43:31 PM  
Never heard of him.

I guess I'm not up to date with the "who's who" of hate speech, transphobia, and white supremacy.

People can disagree with a job and still love their careers, and you can like your job and hate the things that your company does, and if you're in a niche, your career might exist in a space where you either thrive or flip burgers.

I think it's great that these workers feel they can express dissatisfaction without risking getting fired.

He was a leading light of the at-right, appealing to shut-in neckbeards by explaining why lobster mating habits pertain to human life and blaming women for wearing makeup in the office and being a distraction. The New York Times of the world made him into a bit of a star for a while before he went down in drug-induced flames. Guess he has a new book out to jiggle the glands of aforementioned neckbeards once again.

I don't think he is a white supremacist like a previous poster said. He just doesn't want a hundred fake genders shoved down his throat by 'woke' people.

He's one of the new breed of racists who publish videos where they sound like knowledgable academics talking about history and science while avoiding the n-word. But it's all crap with a distorted we-are-better-than-them slant to it.

It's like a YouTube video with a Shakespearean actor reading Mein Kampf.  Would a Shakespearean actor lie to you?

Jorp is a piece of shiat with garbage ideas suitable for morons. It's not a crime to be any of those things.

If he's not wilfully inciting or promoting hatred, just print the stupid book.

I'd be extremely pissed if I worked for a company that decided to publish this white supremacist's book. They're spreading his racist bullshiat and paying him for privilege.

But I get it. When you agree with the white supremacist, it's easy to see this as "nothing".

He's not a white supremacist he's just a guy that rants against various fringe lefty beliefs. I don't find anything he says to be all that nuts. One of his most well known talks was how young men need to grow up, get their shiat together, and take some personal responsibility for their lives. Crazy. If you are a young man ready to be radicalized you could do worse than following the guy that is telling you to put down the Xbox controller and get a job.

Why are conservatives so much more effective at framing "Cancel Culture" than non-conservatives? The entire idea of "Cancel Culture" is largely a conservative movement. Hundreds of millions of dollars are donated every year to organizations like Million Mom March, PTC and Focus on the Family (not to mention about a dozen anti-gay groups), and their core mission for the last 30 years has been to cancel things they don't agree with. Everything from The Dixie Chicks to Kevin Smith to Lucifer to Harry Potter to WWE to Janet Jackson, not to mention literally thousands of other people and pieces of media.

That's a bit dramatic.  He's what dumb people think philosophy sounds like.  He's Chicken Soup for the Soul for the MAGA crowd.

He's an anti-PC and free speech advocate and you cucks can't handle it.

"In June 2018, Peterson filed a $1.5-million lawsuit against Wilfrid Laurier University, arguing that three staff members of the university had maliciously defamed him by making negative comments about him behind closed doors."

Uh oh.

Annoying title aside, this is all you need to know about this assclown. His arguments fall apart under even a tiny amount of scrutiny. He's one of those "Free speech means I get to be a tumescent, diseased asshole to people I hate without consequences, but any attempt to get me to shut the fark up already is SOCIAL MARXISM!!!!ONE1@!" types.

I'm somewhat surprised that he hasn't started shilling penis pills and virility potions yet.  The closest he's gotten is shilling an all beef diet (not all meat... all beef).  He claims it fixed his depression and gave him super energy because that's what cavemen ate and they were Real Men.  His daughter will consult you on how to do it over Skype for $90 an hour.

It's that kind of stuff.  Alex Jones is really into the whole penis pills and meat thing too.  At some point in the last decade, the woo peddlers found a right-wing audience that was hungry for products and services that would turn them into a Real Man.  It was an unexplored genre.

Jordan Peterson's real gift was finding a blue ocean market for grifting.  He's a pioneer.  He looked at Gwenyth Paltrow and said "I can do that too."

I mean, whenever I hear "why don't you just quit in protest" I have to wonder if the person saying it has ever had a job, but never mind.

There's definitely the school of thought that says when you accept a paycheck you're forfeiting your right to have any opinions that would inconvenience the person handing it to you. But they asked for their employees' opinions. The only reason Fox News can write its "LOL libs be cryin'" story is because there was a whole "town hall" about it where this came out.

And maybe some of those people WILL quit, but the company probably saved itself some trouble by finding out that people are pissed now instead of in their exit interviews.

Says one of the pissants that is whining over goddamn near anything that doesn't let him spew the n-word and rape women at their leisure. Shouldn't you be whining that your GEOTUS didn't steal the election?

Have you heard his arguments? He spews lofty sounding words and contradicts himself repeatedly. He says that people shouldn't whine, then whines that women are promiscuous. All you like about him is that him and trash like Molyneaux give you an "intellectual" fig leaf to be the scared little whiny trash you are.

He's another grifter. He tends to say the quiet parts quiet and tries to maintain something of an air of legitimacy, but he wanted to buy a church and start a cult, so *shrug*.
