Jordan Peterson: Young People’s Ignorance of Socialism Risks “Absolute Catastrophe”

“They were never taught about it”.

Published

on

Canadian academic Jordan Peterson warns that socialism is so appealing to young people because they are “unbelievably ignorant” about the history of the 20th century.

During an event hosted by The Heritage Foundation this week, the clinical psychologist and best-selling author said that millennials are embracing far-left ideology because they weren’t taught about its disastrous outcomes at school.

“People are unbelievably ignorant of history,” said Peterson. “What young people know about 20th-century history is nonexistent, especially about the history of the radical left. How would you know? They are never taught about it so why would they be concerned about it?”

He also explained that the simplistic socialist notion of caring for as many people as possible was very alluring for people who had an emotional view of humanity.

Young people are “emotionally drawn to the ideals of socialism, say, or the left, because it draws its fundamental motivational source from a kind of primary compassion, and that is always there in human beings,” said Peterson.

Peterson also blamed the “unholy marriage of the postmodern nihilism with this Marxist utopian notion” for the breakdown in social and family unity, a process which has produced an “absolute catastrophe”.

A major poll last year found that the majority of US millennials would prefer to live under socialism than capitalism.

Video: Protester Spits in Face of Trump Supporter During VICE Interview

“Oh, nice.”

Published

A video clip shows a protester spitting in the face of a Trump supporter wearing a MAGA hat during a VICE interview.

Footage shows the elderly man talking listening calmly to the interviewer’s question before he is spat at.

“Oh, nice,” comments the man.

One of the protesters apologizes to the man, but then another one confronts him and basically argues that he deserved it because of his hat, remarking, “That shit is disrespectful.”

Elizabeth Landers, the woman who was conducting the interview, commented on the incident via Twitter.

“I interview a lot of the President’s supporters at rallies & have never seen this before. (My reaction gives that away quickly),” she said.

Meanwhile, the volume of material for Trump’s 2020 campaign videos grows by the day.

Trump: ‘Biden Understood How To Kiss Obama’s Ass’

Published

“It’s 100% true.”

At one of his trademark rallies Thursday, President Trump tore into the Biden family, charging that Joe Biden was only considered a good Vice President because he was a complete kiss-ass.

Appearing in Minneapolis, Trump first targeted Hunter Biden, asking “Where the hell is he? Where’s Hunter?”

“I have a new idea for a T-shirt. I love the cops, but let’s do another T-shirt: Where’s Hunter?” Trump added.

The President cited reports concerning the younger Biden’s alleged pay offs by a Ukrainian gas company and by the Chinese.

Turning his attention to Joe Biden, Trump ranted “And your father was never considered smart. He was never considered a good senator. He was only a good vice president because he understood how to kiss Barack Obama’s ass!”

As the audience exploded into rapturous applause and laughter, Trump bellowed “It’s true.”

The President then pointed out the press corps and declared “They are always saying the same thing. President Trump made a totally unsubstantiated claim about Hunter Biden and his father. It’s not unsubstantiated, you crooked sun of a guns. It’s 100% true.”

Elsewhere during the rally, Trump targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar, and questioned Minnesotans reasoning for voting her in office.

“I know the people of Minnesota. I want to tell you, and I also at the same time, it’s both a question and a statement, how the hell did that ever happen!?” Trump said, referring to Omars election. “How did it happen?” he repeated.

He added, “How do you have such a person representing you in Minnesota?” adding “I’m very angry at you people right now.”

Calling Omar  a “American-hating socialist,” Trump said “She is a disgrace to our country, and she is one of the big reasons why I’m going to win and the Republican party is going to win Minnesota in 13 months.”

Elizabeth Warren Wants to Give $1 Trillion in Climate Reparations to Black Families

Yes, really.

Published

on

Elizabeth Warren’s “climate justice” plan calls for handing over $1 trillion in environmental reparations to black families.

Because in case you didn’t know – pollution is racist.

The plan, called Fighting For Justice As We Combat The Climate Crisis, asserts that “black families are more likely to live in neighborhoods with higher concentrations of air pollution than white families – even when they have the same or more income.”

The plan doesn’t address why, if they have the same income, the black families don’t just move, but does claim that studies show “whites largely cause air pollution” (surely this is due to demographics alone) and that “Blacks and Latinxs are more likely to breathe it in.”

The plan also claims that black people are hit harder by extreme weather events like hurricanes, floods and even fire.

According to Warren, “environmental racism” is “the result of decades of discrimination” and has “been overlooked for too long.”

To solve the apparent racism of air pollution, Warren is vowing to commit one third of her climate investment fund to “funnel at least $1 trillion into these areas.”

Sounds like a perfectly responsible use of money that won’t be wasted at all.
