Rebel Buzz: Jordan Peterson, Harvey Weinstein & International Women's Day

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor

I don't entirely understand the sentiment behind International Womens Day. I reject the notion that simply because I was born female, I deserve a day dedicated to my chromosomal content and configuration.

Every day that I work hard and am rewarded for that hard work and talent is International Women's Day for me.

But let's take a look at the origins of this recognition holiday:

It began as a day for bosses during the Eastern European communist era to gift female employees with flowers! So if you really want to wish someone a "Happy International Women's Day," maybe you should say it in Russian — I'll show you how...

Cyrus Vance, Manhattan's District Attorney, said after he was sworn in in 2011 that:

"Crimes committed by the affluent, the powerful, or by public officials will be investigated and prosecuted as vigorously as street crimes."

So, will he follow up? Because right now he's the final cog in the machine that could lead to the arrest of the serial sexual predator Harvey Weinstein.

The NYPD Chief of Detectives seems confident they've compiled plenty of evidence against him. The clock is ticking, and a lot of people are praying that this case will ultimately take Weinstein down.

Cyrus Vance: your move.

Professor Jordan B. Peterson has been on tour promoting his book, and bestowing rationality on the ears and in the minds of all who come to see him speak — with a few noisy exceptions, of course.

Monday night, during a speech at Queen's University, the rabid throngs were out in full force, beating and shattering stained glass windows, shouting, "Lock 'em in and burn it down."

All of this to protest a man whose legitimate views on gender roles and equality are the result of decades of study as a clinical psychologist. He's not some "alt-right firebrand." But because these students don't agree with him, acts of violence and property damage are their course of action.

After the incident, Peterson tweeted:

"Barbarians at the gate, Queen's U today: reminiscent of the destruction of the stained glass on Pleasure Island in Pinocchio"

He then tweeted to Joe Rogan:

"It was absolutely surreal, Joe. The mob neglected to bring torches and pitchforks, but the sentiment was there..."

Free speech has clearly gone out of style. I long for the day when free speech in conjunction with sanity returns to our North American continent.

Stay safe, Canada.

And stay away from windows.

- It’s not about recognizing women, it’s about destroying families & virtue signaling. Modern day feminists ignore the plight of women in parts of the world where they’re treated like garbage while they invent the bogus pay gap, fake rape culture, etc.

- If Weinstein walks expect the virtue signaling left to ignore it. They are liars & hypocrites. #MeToo = #BS.

- Socialists like to invent fake rights in order to destroy real rights. They also love vague definitions. So in this case “hate speech” (aka the right not to be offended) is used to attack free speech. America is unique in the world because the founding fathers declared that free speech was a right people already have & the constitution was designed to stop the government from infringing on that right. In other countries free speech is a right that the government grants to the people. As we have seen, what the government gives, the government can take away.

Tammie these people are sad and pathetic as well as hypocrites. When the left has ruined the country so much that their free ride ends they will be in a world of hurt.

Allison York was released and is scheduled to appear in court March 22/18
She threw a fit in the police car and bit an officer…..

Christie Blatchford: Jordan Peterson vs. the new freedom fighters at Queen’s University
The woman is a modern-day freedom fighter, by which I mean she was fighting against freedom (of speech, of expression) and for censorship and shutting debate.

Great commentary Amanda.
The Kingston Whig Standard reported,
“The arrest of 38-year-old Allison York happened after a window was broken at Grant Hall, where University of Toronto psychology professor Jordan Peterson was speaking.
A protester who is not a student at Queen’s was arrested on Monday after a window was broken.
Police said a search of her backpack found a garrote, a metal wire with handles on each end.
The woman was charged with mischief, assaulting police, possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose, and carrying a concealed weapon.
The woman appeared in court Wednesday for a bail hearing.”

The protest organizer calls the arrest “hypocritical”.
Of course she does, these people are absolute fascists!!!
