Jordan Peterson: How the extreme left is creating a hard right reaction

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, Dr. Jordan Peterson joined me to discuss the emergence of the alt-right in reaction to the increasingly extreme left.

Dr. Peterson explained that the left's obsession with identity politics inevitably lead to a resurgence in white identitarianism, with both socialists and the alt-right advancing political agendas founded on benefitting groups rather than individuals. 

Universities administrations are dominated by far-left Marxists, we saw this at Laurier U. when graduate student Lindsay Shepherd was disciplined in a secret Maoist court for showing a clip of Dr. Peterson discussing gender pronouns.

WATCH my interview with Dr. Peterson to see why I think radical groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa are responsible for importing American style grievance politics to Canada.

Wow! Being told for years now that people like you are evil and need to die off created a backlash?
Who would have seen THAT coming?

Stop getting sucked into the left’s fanciful “hard right” bogey man, Hard right on the political spectrum consists of anarchy or 0% government while hard left corresponds to totalitarian governments which includes, communists, socialists, fascists and Nazis.

William Elder… I have no problem with that analysis…

Andy Neimers – you are partially correct but at the core of the backlash reaction to identitarian guilt mongering by the left is the simple fact that people have an aversion to being scolded, guilted, and name called by a gaggle of societies most obviously failed people – no one wants to be exposed to virtue preaching from a whore.

Space Moose, I agree. They keep moving the goal posts and not everyone can keep up with the extremism.

The left has a habit of punting their own to the right for not being extreme enough.

Here is another video that needs youtube restricted mode disabled in order to watch. Maybe Peterson should stop fisting that puppet. In other news, I found the rebel app in the app store. Woot!

“A recent Maclean’s article nailed it – Jordan Peterson is the stupid man’s version of what a smart man is supposed to sound like. "

A MacLean’s poll “nailed” something, WILLIAM KAY? Nailed? MacLeans….as in the magazine? Seriously?

Now that’s a keeper!

The transgender movement is an extension of the population control movement. The elites at the centre of that movement are raving anti-communists. The actual extreme left (Maoists and Marxists etc) were anti-gay, often violently and programatically so. A plague on both their houses I say, but don’t muddle this up with cheap-ass red-baiting. A recent Maclean’s article nailed it – Jordan Peterson is the stupid man’s version of what a smart man is supposed to sound like.

IMHO – Conservatives are fighting two battles right now, one with the delusional Lieberal “domestic terrorists” and a Holy War with the Muslims (also domestic terrorists) . The Clown Prince of the Lieberal Party supports both the Lieberal and Muslim terrorists so it appears we are only fighting one battle but in reality it’s two battles.

Well put William Elder… As what is really a leftist minority, albeit overblown by the mainstream media, you can only poke a “sleeping bear” so many times before you, sooner or later, will get some “sharp teeth” coming back at you…

Pretty simple logic, if some antifa or SJW twerp pushes or hits me , i will push or hit back much harder.

Mike Labrier well said, the useful idiots do not get it. They thought we would just capitulate and slit our wrists.

Dr.Peterson echos my prediction of some 6 years ago when I said the degenerate statist socialists in the EU and their reactionary oppression of anyone who dissents from their self destructive policies, would create a political backlash like we saw in Germany and elsewhere in the 30s – radical nationalist autocracy was a direct reaction to radical leftist thuggery in the streets and campuses and foreign rape of their economies. – radical right parties have now formed and pull a collective 20-40% of the popular vote – and their popularity is increasing as the socialists double down on failed immigration policies.

The white supremacists had all but dwindled away until the black supremacists (BLM) came out of the woodwork. What a boon to WS recruitment BLM is!
