UPDATE: We crowdfunded one year of Prof. Peterson’s research in 24 HOURS — Here’s the NEXT step!

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

As you may know, Professor Jordan Peterson’s research grant was recently denied, for the first time in his academic career. This happened after Peterson’s battles for freedom of speech started making international headlines. So at the Rebel, we decided to help out:

We set up SupportPetersonResearch.com at Indiegogo, and in under 24 hours, we crowdfunded one year’s worth of research into political correctness!

So we’re going to keep going:

Already, funding for Year Two of Peterson’s five year project is over the halfway mark.

In this new video, Professor Peterson thanks contributors and explains more about what he and his graduate students will accomplish with this funding.

So let’s keep this experiment going! Be part of this innovative method of academic research funding, help learn more about what’s behind political correctness, and contribute to the worthwhile cause of free speech in our universities.

Andrew if tax funded university grants are so valid, then show me any approved grant showing the TRUE SCIENCE around the harm of abortion.

Andrew any proof of your comment? I can show you lots of proof of climate BS and scientists coming up with what there backers wanted. Your implication reflects on your own ideology i am betting.

Andrew Stephenson thanks for proving my point. And you pretty much summed up the man made global warming BS you support, the paid for results have to show what the globalists want.

Hogwash. Seriously, how can you ethically even write that paragraph? Typical deflection and supisition. To even suggest the doctor’s positions are presupposed, completely disqualifies you from even being taken seriously.

Special interests, who like him because he’s put out results they agree with. This means that there is pressure to confirm these presupposed conclusions, which is unethical. It’s also grossly irresponsible to expose graduate students to potentially career-destroying conflicts of interest.

I find it hard to believe that a tenured professor has never had a grant denied before. The success rate of Tri-Council grants is only about 20%. The average professor has half a dozen grants rejected every year. Either someone’s been extraordinarily privileged, or he’s lying.

Awesome , the lefties will have a hard time understanding that people paid of their own accord instead of being forced to pay by taxation. "

We should fund a trip to Hawaii for the good Professor. He looks exhausted after the beating he has taken recently from academia and the press.

His ‘self authoring program’ is a good prescription for all those basement dwelling trolls out there.

Dr. Peterson’s work is important to us all. We all benefit from a healthy productive society. Money well spent.
This voluntary crowdfunding is the exact opposite of government funded propaganda. Brilliant idea.
