The War on Professors: Jordan Peterson, Janice Fiamengo PLUS Ann Coulter

Gavin McInnesArchive

This week, Ann Coulter sits with us to discuss the war on professors. She was accused of hate speech at Ottawa University before she had even done her talk so she retaliated and sued the University.

This was back in 2010 but things haven’t changed as today, we see Prof. Janice Fiamengo is facing a Human Rights Tribunal for offending one of her students. The professor has been under fire recently for criticizing safe spaces and trigger warnings and trying to warn students that the real world doesn’t care about your feelings.

We also speak to Prof. Jordan Peterson who is pretty much in the same boat as Fiamengo. He’s in trouble because he refuses to use the infinite pronouns Millennials are demanding. He thinks these kind of made up parameters are more than just invalid, they’re dangerous.

That’s the irony of all this professor persecution:

The ones trying hardest to prepare kids for the real world are the ones under fire.

If this continues, the bottom has to fall out of the Post Secondary Education racket. We can’t keep going thousands of dollars in debt to go to an institution that leaves us dumber than when we went in.

This is what happens when the authorities want to make goo of past bads. The same applies to Germany. Now Germany is destroying its culture by letting in all these foreigners. And the same in Canada by letting in all these crazy, sick concepts such as gender-switching at the flip of a button.

Well we all know that leftism is fascism with a fake smile. I hope they do ‘eat one another’…I would never send a child to such a university today. The current professors stood by while conservative professors were driven out. I thought university professors and leaders had brains, yet they have permitted social engineers to gain control over them. What great Canadians have already left our country to save themselves from the Machiavellian Human Rights Commission?

Online courses might solve the primary problems…and cut costs as well. The Human Rights Commission is like a Star Chamber and a dangerous vat of death for freedom loving people. It is an abyss where fascist totalitarians can assassinate all that is good and just, and have righteous citizens pay for their own destruction (taxes) by frivolous evil fiends who seem to be allied of with what may pass as an evil, complicit state (for how could a good state allow this to continue after all the evidence has been collected?) It is even more than this…it is a sledge hammer whereby all hope of liberty is smashed, and a coffin wherein all hope for the future is nailed shut and buried. It should be illegal. How is it still here? What kind of sinister government allows this transparently questionable apparatus? What possible excuse permits a nation to send the likes of Prof. Janice Fiamengo to the certain destruction of her career and possible bankruptcy from legal fees, on such flimsy claims, not to mention students who should be considered innocent until proven guilty? Surely real courts would be more fair and balanced places for such trials.

I think the punch in the face would probably cause the least amount of resistance and anxiety

Gavin, AWSOME show, eh!! Ann Coulter, Jordan Peterson, Janice Fiamengo, WOW! Those are three of the most incredibly brilliant and courageous freedom fighters. They deserve all the publicity and support that can be mustered on their behalf. They’re going to need it and we desperately need them if we’re to overcome the insanity that has overtaken our universities and has begun to infect our legal system beginning with the abominations known as “Human Rights” Commissions/Tribunals.

The persecution of people of Peterson’s and Fiamengo’s stature, intelligence and integrity (what chance would the rest of us have?) by putrid, fascistic SJW’s has a feel about it like we’ve all read about the French Reign of Terror, the Soviet thought police and Mao’s cultural revolution – pure unmitigated tyranny.

When people say to grease up the guns and bury them, we are no longer into protection of rights. We are into insurrection. I find it funny that Dr. Peterson is on the insurrection side, he being an adherent of Grant and Sandy Notley. Except, he maybe inculcated their moral views, as opposed to the daughter?

People have to speak up and voice they’re disdain for this stuff, that is how these things happen in the first place, by good people doing nothing to stop the transgressions against human nature in an attempt to modify social behavior, but then again what can you expect when you allow something like gender studies to be introduced to weak minded pre adults in a school setting, that are turned out in droves now because of the above mentioned.

Stellar show Gavin! Awesome guests. All soldiers in the battle against those who are trying to control our speech and thought. I have been delving more into Jordan Peterson and am impressed and inspired by his passion and determination to refuse to play into the game, no matter his personal cost. The more thick skinned and vocal we become the better, and easier it will be for all of us speaking out. In another interview I listened to online, Peterson mentioned that after the show on tvo’s The Agenda, one guest( the evil speech and thought gender studies nazi who crawled out from underneath his rock looking for people to snare) apparently asked the host of the Agenda if he could have a copy of the transcript for possible future legal proceedings. Said scum sucker inferred that the host had referred to one of the other guests with an incorrect pronoun!

We can’t allow these bottom feeders any authority. Sorry I can’t post the link, I can’t remember which interview it was, as I had listened to several.

First, ann coulter wasn’t accused of hate speech. She was warned not to use any
Who defines “hate speech”? She was told her words would be interpreted by unconstitutional bodies such as the Ontario human rights tribunal and the Canadian human rights commission and The U of O. None of these bodies have the moral authority or the right to define hate speech as there is no such thing. There is simply a difference of opinion and these opinions have the right to be debated in an open forum where both parties are treated equally.

@pierre Chagnon…BINGO!!!! you have just uncurtained the Wizard of Oz…….SJWs have no lawfull mandate.

Their power does not come from the law…it comes from that magic carpet people get called on at human resources. …or at the university code of conduct office. Problem is SJWs graduate from university thinking that Canada is the campus of their university writ large…..and the academics who get elected seem to think so too…Tom Mulchair for instance.

We are being controlled by the government supported SJW’s they became the thought police, but who gave them authority over us ?

@dh CHAISSON….Ann Coulter is a freedom of speech lawyer…..what would violate the speach codes of many Canadian universities would not pass the required smell test of approval that is required for a charge…

(Go on…read it DH…sections 318 and 319…do your homework)

The problem is that academic administrators and SJWs all think that they are judiciary authority…the federal HRC got it’s hate speech fangs pulled so it would only be Kathy the Winner’s Kangaroo Court that Ann would have to be concerned about…for all her sassy banter she does not advocate genocide or incite to violence against an identifyable group and even if someone thought she did…it would be up to the Attorney General to approve laying the charge not some SJW in cap and gown of scholarship drag.

First, ann coulter wasn’t accused of hate speech. She was warned not to use any as her lost lawsuit had indicated. Nice try though, Gavin!

CENTRIST LIBERTARIAN……what a pathetic existence you’re in! Blocked from regurgitating your leftist regressive fucktard cowardly vile under one fake name, then popping a few more pills, taking a shot and creating another fake moniker. You have a serious mental illness, seek help. you are fooling no one but yourself, you’re not well!

Hate to be a wardrobe nazi but the shirt and tie just doesn’t work with the Saskatchewan dinner jacket.
Must be a Motörhead t-shirt kicking around somewhere, eh?

Ontario’s absurdity is the result to be expeceted by electing a lesbian feminist who sought a career in education …to the position of policy maker…’s not about who she is scissoring…she was free to do that before being elected….she sought election in order to use a pair of scissors on your nuts….wake up….take the red pill.

And to all of my detractors and enemies…..I don’tcare if you like me…..Like Stephan Molineaux says….manipulators work on the assumption that all human relationships are like boy meets girl…..please try to understand that if my stated position is not to your liking….it’s not like I wanted to fuck you.

Lord of the Flies used to be required reading in highschool….things started going downhill when the feminists managed to get it dropped…

All you millenials…..if you haven’t read it you should….if your ADHD doesn’t make that an impossible goal.

Problem is I have been supporting like professor Peterson and Fiamengo since the 1980s….they all eventially get golden parachuted out and the number of supporters is never known….because they will not do what needs to be done….meet the shout downs toe to toe and shout louder and push back.

And when you get called to court over it….go full free man on the land and tie the court into a pretzel.

- Ann Coulter? Great guest, eh? Bill Clinton pushing violence against women legislation – how screwed up is that? Big fan of Prof. Jordan Peterson – been following his story. Eventually school will be where stupid people go to get dumbed down.

Good stuff!

Rex Murphy actually spoke about Prof. Peterson and the spoiled brats of U of Toronto, last night on The National. He was not sympathetic toward these pronumb kids.
It sounded soooo foreign to hear this kind of coverage on CBC. Murphy is the only good thing about CBC news.
