Jordan Peterson has become an archvillain of the Left.
He is one of the individuals most responsible for waking people up to the “woke” insanity that has been spreading.
But another top commentator who defended Peterson got hit with an unbelievable punishment.
Canadian psychologist and best-selling author Jordan Peterson has risen to international notoriety over the past seven years because of his persistence in fighting back against the radical Left.
He first rose to prominence in 2016 when he challenged Bill C-16, a piece of Canadian legislation that criminalized “misgendering” someone.
Peterson—a professor at the University of Toronto at the time—said it was a form of compelled speech and refused to comply.
Peterson became a huge voice warning against what the danger to society compliance meant and that the slippery slope it would become.
He was proven correct.
In the past six years, the problem has gotten far worse.
Peterson himself was recently locked out of his Twitter account for “dead-naming” and “misgendering” actress Elliot Page, who “transitioned” from Ellen Page and who many remembered for her role in the film Juno.
In response to an article about Page’s character on the Netflix series Umbrella Academy transitioning, Peterson tweeted, “Remember when pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician.”
Peterson said he “would rather die” than take down the tweet in order to regain access to his account.
If that censorship wasn’t bad enough, political commentator Dave Rubin was locked out of his account for simply mentioning that Peterson was suspended on the platform.
Rubin tweeted, “[Jordan Peterson] has been suspended for this tweet about Ellen Page. He just told me he will ‘never’ delete the tweet. Paging [Elon Musk]….”
Rubin was suspended for “dead-naming” Page in the tweet where he simply explained what happened to Peterson.
This is how Orwellian the Left have become.
Rubin, who built the social media platform Locals, a Facebook and Twitter alternative, said in a statement, “I have been suspended by Twitter for posting a screenshot of Jordan Peterson’s tweet which got he himself suspended…While it is unclear how I broke their terms of service…it is clear they are breaking their fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders by letting a bunch of Woke activists run the company.”
An undercover journalist for Project Veritas caught a senior Twitter engineer on camera admitting that employees at the company were “commie as f*ck,” and everyone is witnessing it first-hand.
Rubin himself was considered a liberal not so long ago. In fact, he first rose to public notoriety on far-Left media outfit The Young Turks.
In a 2020 interview with The Jerusalem Post Rubin said his political awakening began while he worked with The Young Turks in 2013 when its owner attacked a conservative commentator named David Webb who Rubin had previously worked with.
The supposedly “anti-racist” owner of The Young Turks called Webb, who is black, the “‘Uncle Tom of the conservative movement’ who betrayed his ethnic roots . . . and Rubin was disgusted by these racist attacks by the head of a network who was purportedly anti-racist,” The Jerusalem Post reported.
One-time Liberals are now either experiencing political awakenings over there own like Rubin, podcaster Joe Rogan and others, or they are quickly being replaced by leftist radicals who do not care at all about free speech, honesty, or any other principle.
The Left now only cares about power and crushing their enemies.
Peterson and Rubin are enemies, so they are being punished for ridiculous reasons.
This is precisely why non-woke people are hoping Elon Musk can gain control of Twitter and re-commit the platform to free speech.
