Jordan Peterson: Universities have been taken over by social justice "radicals"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's showDr. Jordan Peterson joined me to update the situation involving Lindsay Shepherd, a graduate student who was disciplined for showing a video interview with him in the classroom.

Shepherd played the video clip in a course on critical thinking to show Peterson's views on controversial legislation that mandates the use of fake gender pronouns.

Shepherd wasn't advocating for Peterson's opinions, but the far-left administrators at Wilfred Laurier would permit no opposing views and chastised Lindsay in a secret Maoists tribunal where they compared the clip of Peterson to Nazi propaganda.

They even called it "violence"! 

WATCH my full-length interview with Dr. Peterson to see why he thinks what happened at Laurier only proves his statements about the Marxist domination of universities and his critiques of Bill C-16 were correct.

Bert Wakefield,

If you actually believe that, you are literally insane.

When did Universities start being so poisoned, they weren’t always that way. Around the time the unions got a good grip? When pay for play became all the rage? I am sure Wilfred Laurier gets thousands if not more from the main puppeteers, funnelled through groups like tides and unions. These universities are being paid to put out these little soldiers to further agendas.
Maybe it would be a good idea to look at the rules for funding /donating both to political parties and educational institutions, before it’s too late. There is a huge bursary and scholarship program at Laurier, grants and financial aids for students which obtains funding from somewhere.
Companies like CN and banks have donated to business programs, and I am sure there are individual donors as well. I have to wonder though, is Soros funnelling money through Tides to universities in Canada as it seems he does in the U.S.? Is there pay for play money given to unions? Time to change the rules so this sort of interference is stopped. Kid’s going into the ‘Humanities’ are being brainwashed and used.
Universities these days are breeding armies of trolls like our little misfit here Frank Ho him her.

Frank Hohimer———the Rebel is the only media that isn’t written and controlled by the feds. So they are the only media that you can actually believe. If you believe the other crap then you have your ostrich head in the sand like most other Lemmings.

Drew Wakariuk,

Jay was quite clear in his post about why he quit this place, but to be fair – you are known for having massive reading comprehension problems.

For years now, anytime I get Alumni news in the mail, it goes in the recycle bin unopened.
commented 2017-11-27 04:23:42 -0500
Glad I am done with university. God did I hate my leftist profs.
commented 2017-11-27 01:35:09 -0500
Frank Hohimer people change employers quite often moron, try reading the whole twitter thread, you lied about what Faith Goldy said as well. LMAO! PATHETIC! Now go lie to yourself saying this University incident never happened , like a good little commie sheep.

Liza, David Haskell spoke out soon after this story broke, he has supported Lindsay from the beginning. Thanks for posting the link with the latest commentary from him. Yes indeed, his public statements are honourable. I hope administration doesn’t go after him when the dust settles.
commented 2017-11-27 00:30:04 -0500
Liza, Wow – unbelievable nonsense!
commented 2017-11-27 00:23:01 -0500
Liza, I didn’t see the demand for protection….will have a look now.
commented 2017-11-27 00:21:51 -0500
Liza, the counter-protesters in the video are truly indoctrinated Marxists, arm-bands and not permitted to speak…incredibly sad & frustrating to watch.
Lindsay will come out the other end of this with a better understanding of how free speech and critical thinking are being stamped out on campus; compelled speech is a sure sign of living in a Totalitarian regime.
I think once this dies down, Laurier and other campuses will go back to business as usual.
I support de-funding Universities that operate this way…I also hope Alumni will stop contributing and parents will stop paying for their children’s indoctrination. If there is a coordinated approach to all of this, it may effect change.
commented 2017-11-27 00:11:22 -0500
Tammie did you read the complaints and demand for protection on the petition in her twitter feed? Pretty amusing wasn’t it? What on earth do they think they are going to do, get everyone to obey by stamping their little feet?
commented 2017-11-27 00:05:44 -0500
Tammie , Lindsey posted a copy of a petition that many of the faculty have signed, to demand the admin does something more to protect them, by reporting people. They also make wild accusations about threats and crime and supremacist signs etc. with nothing to back up their claims. It is a pathetic attempt at control and only makes them look worse. As well it ‘self’ identifies which professors to avoid. By signing that petition they have identified themselves for students to decide whether or not to sign up for a course. Parents are reconsidering their decisions to enroll their kids in Wilfred Laurier I am sure. This may be a self correcting thing, who knows.
commented 2017-11-26 23:53:15 -0500
Liza, so true.
Lindsay’s story has been reported on internationally. There are still faculty at Laurier who defend the inquisition, incredible when you think about it.
If you follow Lindsay’s twitter feed, it is becoming more apparent she is ready to fight Laurier.
Since this story broke, I have always thought she was incredibly smart to have recorded what happened in that room; otherwise, how would she have a leg to stand on without the proof Laurier faculty & staff operate like the Gestapo.

liza Rosie,

Funny enough that the point you are trying to make about Jay – actually applies to you. You are not cut out for the hard truth, despite all the people who have worked for Ezra that have bailed. The Rebel is a fear mongering delivery system.
commented 2017-11-26 23:45:46 -0500
The unions are a big driving force in these Marxist outfits. They must be having all sorts of conniptions trying to rally forces. Nobody has seen such blind obedience in a civilian army since screwed up kids reported to sign up with the SS. They should look in the mirror if they want to see what nazi behavior looks like.
commented 2017-11-26 23:35:19 -0500
I forgot the Q. in lgbtq.

re: Jay, That tweet is only damning to one party, the guy who wrote it. Some people just aren’t cut out for the hard truth, depressing though it must be to report on day after day. Wish the boy well, but could we just once ignore the ignorant troll who goes by the name of Frank Hohimer and stay on topic?
You know, thought police and the like? Lindsey Shepherd being interrogated by now crying babies who are still demanding to control the narrative. Tight choreographed, Nazi like control of the narrative. Jordan Peterson being likened to Hitler when they are doing more projecting of how they actually conduct themselves, just like a nazi army with their little arm bands. Sick ,offensive behavior. No time to fight with a troll who’s only job is to take this conversation and drive it into the ditch.

This comment section is full of different spectrums . First we have intellectuals , than a link to a sex site and than a troll . Doesn’t get more diverse than that folks !

Terry MacLeod,

Sure – Ezra probably threatened to sue him, but it doesn’t negate his reasons for quitting.
commented 2017-11-26 23:20:57 -0500
Frank, and then you’ll notice that Jay apologized and removed his post. I don’t know why or what he’s going through but sadly he’s doing a nosedive. I’ve been following his youtube rants, that were were once logical diatribes and now are just vulgar rants. I hope he gets it together.
commented 2017-11-26 23:19:58 -0500
Maybe it’s time Prof. Peterson and the other two Profs consider starting a new University. I don’t know what would be involved, but I’m sure it would work as a privately funded campus.
commented 2017-11-26 23:19:52 -0500
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y721r6GXc9Y Laurier free spech rally, identifying arm bands and all. Just like brown shirts. Do these people even know how they are being perceived? Special treatment for them, none for anyone else. It is as though they think the entire world is majority lgbt. I cannot get over how these people talk baby talk, valley girl. What is with that?
..another soldier for the cause of freedom of thought and speech in Canada.
Justin we want off your life sucking multi cultural, post truth and post logic death train.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

Which again is translation for: Tammie has NOTHING or in this case – Tammie is dodging, since we both know you read Jay’s statement about The Rebel.

Rinse and repeat.

These people graduate thinking that Canada is the campus of their university writ large…speach codes and all.
