What makes someone a social justice warrior? Prof. Peterson may have the answer

Lauren SouthernArchive

We always knew SJWs were off their rockers. They'll break your phone, cover themselves in blood, screech about bigotry and pathologically lie, all for their cause. I don't think anyone is convinced they're mentally stable. 

Now instead of just anecdotes, we have proof.

Dr. Jordan B. Peterson and a few of his students at the University of Toronto have been studying political correctness, politics and personality.

They’ve unlocked the formula that makes someone a social justice warrior (not that we have any interest in recreating them.)

It’s extremely important to understand and acknowledge what creates these radical leftists, and more importantly, how to stop this from happening.

This episode of Standoff, I talk to Dr. Peterson and PhD student Christine Brophy about their research.

Our very own Faith Goldy also joins me to discuss where we fall politically on the personality scale.

Talking about a person being neurotic, what was with Faith’s obvious preoccupation/distraction with her hands? She appeared detached and even though interactive she presented as so disinterested from the discussion I was rather perplexed!

Finally a Professor I can admire!

So, scientifically, the insane are truly ruling the asylum. Tell us something we didnt know.

SJW better described as fanatic political activism, is and always has been the refuge of sociopaths and tyrants – both of which traditionally were ripped apart by mobs.

Glenn Craig – the sad part is, that they usually abide by the path of least resistance. They remove the innocent, and leave the shit disturbers to continue disrupting the scene. This is what the police do too, to override our rights. These idiots don’t follow rules!

@deborah Gaupner…the solution is ROBERTS RULES OF ORDER….this was required reading when I was in university…

Campus police can arrest and remove anyone deemed “out of order” for “disorderly conduct”

Oh vajay jay……please seek help for your mental issues………and your substance abuse as well.

Proponents of free speech should know the playing field isn’t fair. It never was. Intellectually inferior people must admit they didn’t have the foresight to see far-off dangers while there was time to resolve things peacefully. Now, free speech means the blood of tyrants and patriots must be spent to pay the high cost of the right to survive the apocalyptic threat of Marxism. We must be allowed to protect ourselves from the weapon of a century of Marxist creep. By the extremes of the use of police force, deportation of traitors, the disloyal. How many will have to be hanged because we allowed ourselves to be sold on the lies of freedom, equality, and democracy. In an environment of uncontrolled speech, the sharpest, quickest, and nimblest minds enslave the kind, the gentle, the well-mannered and obedient. When women want votes they haven’t paid for with the draft, pushed by Marxist agitators, those women need to face the wall of.

When young boys are fooled into thinking their lives can be saved by choosing between the lesser of two evil after they come back from the war, they’ve forgotten that those rights are secured only by bloody rebellion and the overthrow of a government installed, bolstered, and advised by those who profit from war.

The rise of hatred against heroes and patriots will be once again paid for in the ashes and bones of a dead society starved away by forced famine, as has happened countless times in the past, manipulation of money by the manipulators of money, or we’ll learn to defend ourselves against the brilliant, hate-filled anti-men who’ll never stop trying to keep us as their human cattle, and smash us against the rock of warfare for profits.

This is no time for politeness. It’s time to name the enemy. To turn him as white as a ghost with the fear that we can see him for what he is. A kidnapper. A killer. A war profiteer. A devil. An anti-Christ. An anti-courage, anti-freedom, anti-food, anti-work lover of famine, plague, and wicked rule through poverty of mind and means.

We’ve heard nothing but generations of lies to hide the other lies. False virtues. The only virtue they value is to crush yet another civilization under the heel of its filthy, bloody boot.

It will be interesting to see if the debate is fair or not. I expect all the troubled SJW’s to shout down Prof. Peterson, and cause such disruption that it is cancelled. And of course, those that are being paid as security, will look the other way, and aid the enemy.

I think deep down, these Social Justice Warriors have been oppressed for much of their lives, probably with little or no support from their parents (or in Justin’s case, raised by nannies with little or no real parenting). Now with a Liberal ideology in power throughout Europe and the West, these downtrodden have found their voice, although seriously misaligned with reason, and their true selves have been allowed to ‘come out’. Unfortunately many of these degenerates are most-likely repressed bullies, and their newfound power has gone to their heads. Maybe they are attempting to get even.

SJW: Silly Jay Wee-wee

I thought SJW were “single Jewish woman.”

Set the record straight.

Tom – Really dude?

I’ve watched Peterson for years on The Agenda and always found him credible. I’m int’d to learn more (oh darn!! there’s that gosh darned conservative open-mindedness of me!!).

Lauren – I’m thrilled to see you pursuing this, you’re perfect for the job! And kudos to Ezra, he’s got a good eye for talent!!

I’d love to audit a class. Actual academic research about political, social leaning and behaviours and whats behind why people are more left or right. I’ll be looking for studies. Although Faith and Lauren on the same show comparing personally test results kind of made me feel like I was cheating on my wife. Intelligence and Beauty x 2. Sorry but I’m only a man, one of the rainbow of 17 1/2 genders, each of which has its own freaky proclivities. Mine are intelligence and beauty to name a few. I know freaky right?

Regarding atheism, Solzhenitsyn declared:

Over a half century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of old people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.” Since then I have spent well-nigh 50 years working on the history of our revolution; in the process I have read hundreds of books, collected hundreds of personal testimonies, and have already contributed eight volumes of my own toward the effort of clearing away the rubble left by that upheaval. But if I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous revolution that swallowed up some 60 million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.”

Just goes to prove Peterson’s Law: “The same of intelligence in the world is a constant. Only the population is increasing”.

Look forward to the full version of the interview with Dr. Peterson and Christine Brophy. The debate should prove highly entertaining. Awesome show Lauren.

1 in 100 SWJ may have an actual grievance but by far the majority of SJWs are the usual assortment of sociopathic vandalizers, on-the-take wannabe web celebs, generic misanthropes, and neurotic sentimental virtue posers. Emotional/intellectual basket cases that think their pathology gives them a right to get into your face.

A silly suggestion I’m sure, but Lauren, could you try not straightening your hair for an episode? I have a feeling that your long, blonde hair with a messy, windblown look would be spectacular. Just a thought.

It is nice to understand the underlying reasoning about these SJW’s and Political Correctness idiots (many of them education administrators and even politicians), but the problem today is that these mental patients are seemingly now in charge of the institution.

I’m familiar with Peterson’s lectures on pathological belief systems – I particularly agree with his in depth analysis of both statist fascism and statist communism as being common pathocracies based in fanaticism , not reason. I agree with his dismissal of the “left-right” political paradigm as an off-shoot of totalist political pathologies. Modern leftist advocacy and activsm has adopted mant elements of these two forms of totalist pathocracy.

He quotes Jung quite a bit and much of his reasoning could come from Cato’s letters

A bright and enlightened thinker – actually in this day and age of fanatic political pathology, he’s a true renaissance man

- So SJWs are basically angry, maladjusted children. This is not news to me. Looking forward to seeing more on this in the future.
