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

“They were never taught about it”.

Published

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.

Election Meddling: Facebook Removes Populist Pages Days Before Spanish Election

Big Tech purges Vox Party content on orders of left-wing NGO.

In a clear example of election meddling, Facebook has removed numerous large pages which expressed support for the populist Vox Party days before Spain’s general election.

Pages which when combined reached millions of people were deleted for “violating our authenticity policies,” according to the social media giant.

The pages were removed at the request of Avaaz, a left-wing NGO which is funded by George Soros, according to NGO Monitor.

Avaaz asserted that the pages were spreading “misogynist, Islamophobic and homophobic messages”.

“The largest network – Unidad Nacional Española (UNE) – had more than 1.2 million followers, and others reached hundreds of thousands more. Together they had more than 7 million interactions, at a time of intense political activity and focus on the political rise of the upstart far-right party Vox,” reports the Guardian.

By removing the pages days before a national election, Facebook is engaging in election meddling.

As studies by Dr. Robert Epstein have shown, algorithm manipulation and censorship by Big Tech can shift millions of votes during elections.

Vox defied expectations by taking 12 seats in the Andalucían regional election back in December.

The Spanish general election takes place on Sunday, with Vox expected to pick up around 11% of the vote.

AOC Humiliated Over Erroneous Tweet, Immediately Deletes It

Claimed Republicans had posed “older male” next to her when man in the photo was a Democrat.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was humiliated yet again on Twitter after complaining about Republicans posing an “older male” next to a cardboard cut out of her, only for the man in the photo to turn out to be a Democrat.

“Nobody:

GOP: Let’s pose our older male members next to cardboard cut outs of young female legislators,” tweeted AOC.

However, as soon as it emerged that the man in the image was actually Democrat Rep. John Yarmuth, who was expressing his support for the New York Congresswoman, she deleted the tweet.

Ocasio-Cortez recently vowed to use Twitter less frequently.

After this embarrassment, maybe she should consider deleting her account altogether.

Joe Biden Launches His Campaign on the Lie That Trump Said Neo-Nazis Were “Very Fine People”

Trump never referred to Charlottesville racists as “very fine people” – he specifically condemned them.

Joe Biden launched his presidential campaign on the proven lie that Donald Trump said Neo-Nazis in Charlottesville were “very fine people”.

“He said there were, quote, ‘Some very fine people on both sides,’” said Biden in his campaign video. “Very fine people on both sides? With those words the president of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it and in that moment I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any other I’d seen in my lifetime,” added the former Vice President.

However, as is manifestly provable, Trump never referred to neo-nazis as “very fine people” and openly condemned them on numerous occasions.

The hoax is based on the president’s Trump Tower press conference when he was asked to respond to the tragic events in Charlottesville.

“Excuse me, they didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis, and you had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides,” said Trump, before making it clear that he was referring to people protesting against the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee,” not alt-right white supremacists who subsequently hijacked the demonstration.

Trump specifically went on to condemn the alt-right mob and made it clear he was not referring to them with his “very fine people” line.

“I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and white nationalists because they should be condemned totally,” said Trump in the same press conference.

“Trump made clear several times during the conference that he was referring specifically to those who had showed up to demonstrate against the statue’s removal and that he otherwise condemned the white supremacists,” writes the Washington Examiner’s Eddie Scarry.

Real Clear Politics’ Steve Cortes also carefully explains in his article how, “Despite the clear evidence of Trump’s statements regarding Charlottesville, major media figures insist on spreading the calumny that Trump called neo-Nazis “fine people.” The only explanation for such a repeated falsehood is abject laziness or willful deception.”

Trump never referred to neo-nazis as “very fine people” and specifically condemned them on multiple occasions.

The entire foundation of Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is built on a proven hoax.
