How delightful that none of his supporters want to defend the asshole anymore! He's literally fallen off the rails and it wont be a surprise if we hear about his accidental ............................ whatever?

He can be an asshole, i'll agree with that.  I think his chief value in the public realm is as it long has been:  a clinical psychologist.  He's helped thousands upon thousands of people with his book and lectures, they thank him all the time for helping turn their lives around.  A lot of young men too.  Our boys and men are in crisis.  Killing each other, killing other innocent people, filling up our jails, committing suicide and other "deaths of despair" through substance abuse.  For many, he's the no-nonsense father figure they needed but never had.

Weird to have a discussion about somebody if all you feel is hatred for them.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

I welcome your balls back! He should have stuck with being a clinical psychologist. He's made a mess of his position of being the debater who was to be the darling of the right.

And all the other positive you attribute to him are debatable at best. He after all owned none of it what wasn't already owned by sincere and socially responsible people.

I very much doubt that he'll be back.

As to me discussing somebody I feel hatred and disgust toward? It's the norm of course and it is applied to Trump, Biden, Trudeau, Horgan, and others by you as much as anyone else.

And now if you want to get a true picture of Peterson, take a chance on watching the full video in which Dillahunty destroyed him completely.

And fwiw, it was in a time in which Peterson couldn't be claiming mental issues!

Hey Monty

I happened to come across this in my YouTubular travels:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnIAAkSNtqo

It's JP testifying as to why he hates girly-men (I am paraphrasing ;) )

Anyway, good news is that I thought his initial and main point was not as crazy as I had suspected.  He indicated that his concerns about forced pronouncement laws were based on a post on the Ontario HRC site ... uh ... that was taken down.  Ok, benefit of the doubt and all that so 1/2 a point for him.

And after that his argument goes to shit pretty quickly.   Something about social constructs not being a good basis for legislating against descrimination.   ???  So ... religion, race, creed, heritage shouldn't be protected against discrimination... I ... guess ... ?

Awwww gee MH, I hate the sound of his voice and I've already found it easy to come to the conclusion that he's phony, albeit an educated one. So please, please can you direct me to the times for the important parts that you feel we should all be aware of?

And also, there isn't anybody who is going to stand with Jordan anymore. You just strengthen the negative opinions against him.

The Peterson agenda is impossible in my opinion because intelligent people need to distance themselves from the god delusions, while still having to hold up the bible part of Christianity. If he was to take his beliess outside of mainstream Xtian bullshit, he would at least get himself on a few more debate stages.

Anyway, a bit of help with the important parts? I just cannot stomach a full hour plus of that miserable psychotic loser.

Soooooooo!
You tried to get me to watch it for you.

If you bailed in the first 4 minutes, I would bail even faster now that I know how big a dink that guy is.

I put it out there for you, like a tray of crackers with bird shit on them.  Try or do not try... there is no dooo... Only creamy cracker curiosity, there is.

In other words, don't complain about the shit I offer you...

O.k. you win this time. I heard out Brown up to about 12 minutes.
People like Peterson are probably more interested in replaying videos like this one and jerking off over it for the vainglorious pleasure he gets from seeing and hearing his image. Not because he has any moral priorities he needs to uphold.

Him and his little men lined up behind him have gained courage from the Trump regime the other side of the border and are only intent in promoting the same extremist right agenda in Canada. Hopefully Jordan will soon go extinct.

On the brighter note, you may have stirred some Peterson supporter to feeling like he/she needs to support his views here.

Instead of trying to cajole ďPetersen supportersĒ out of the woodwork, why donít you take a topic you disagree with him about and make a post about it?

You seem to have a cult-of-personality obsession with the guy in the opposite way his followers do....   just because Petersen said something doesnít make it wrong...   the ideas stand up, or not, on their own merit.

And so what do you think we should talk about here on this thread? Shirley we can agree on that at least! You could start by suggesting there's something good about Peterson!

Itís not my thread.  Why should I have to come up with a topic of discussion?  I made a suggestion that might get you some more responses.  Do it, or not.  I donít really care. 

And donít call me Shirley.

I'm just going to have to ignore you completely if you have nothing to contribute. Actually I've already said too much that encourages your bad behaviour here on this thread.

Sounds good to me.

I will continue to point out your issues with facts and logic in your posts.  Feel free to ignore my truth-bombs.
