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.

The Media is Yet Again Trying to Emotionally Manipulate People to Accept Open Borders by Exploiting Photos of Dead Children

Same old dirty trick.

Published

on

The media is yet again trying to emotionally manipulate people into accepting open borders by exploiting photos of dead children.

The same press and left-wing talking heads who claim that showing child victims of Islamic terror attacks is “insensitive” are all too willing to share photos of child victims who supposedly died because evil western countries have borders.

“It’s OK when we do it.”

The left has found its new ‘Aylan Kurdi’ – a toddler who washed up dead on a beach in Turkey and whose dead body photo was ruthlessly exploited by progressives to demand western Europe throw open its borders to Middle Eastern migrants.

The latest image shows a man and his 23 month old daughter lying face down dead along the bank of the Rio Grande.

It is now being breathlessly shared by leftists are yet more proof that the Nazi-like Trump administration has enacted policies that are killing brown people en masse.

In reality, as Raheem Kassam points out, the fault for this poor child’s death lies firmly at the feet of numerous entities, none of which are Trump or his administration.

– The child’s parents for making her cross “some of the most perilous terrain on the continent”.

– Mexico for allowing their country to become a conduit for mass illegal immigration.

– Criminal gangs who are responsible for much of the instability in the region.

– Democrats who incentivize illegal immigration by refusing to support sensible border policies.

– Open borders activists funded by NGOs and corporations who also incentivize dangerous illegal immigration.

The most humanitarian way to prevent tragic scenes like the one above is to disincentivize illegal border crossings.

Matteo Salvini did it and more than halved the number of migrant deaths in the Mediterranean.

If Democrats actually cared about kids dying, they’d help President Trump build the wall.

Do leftists actually want to save the lives of children, or do they want to continue to exploit photos of their dead bodies to score political points and usurp power?

The answer is obvious.

AOC Criticized For Wearing $600 Watch During ‘Crying’ Border Photo-Op

“When in a dusty area near the border it is always important to be stylish”.

Published

on

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has received heat after it was revealed that she was wearing a $600 dollar watch during her carefully staged ‘crying’ border photo-op.

The photos, which show AOC crying into her hands, were taken two days before she won her Congressional race. They show her outside a “tent city” in Tornillo, Texas which was being used to temporarily hold migrant children.

It is unknown what Ocasio-Cortez is looking at or crying about, but the photos are carefully staged to catch the height of her emotion, prompting questions as to their ‘in the moment’ authenticity.

Even Newsweek highlighted the bizarre sight of AOC wearing a pristine, crisp white outfit and bright red lipstick during what was supposedly a “protest”.

Ocasio-Cortez was apparently trying to look good alongside the numerous celebrities who showed up for the event.

Now Twitter users are dragging Ocasio-Cortez for wearing a $600 dollar watch during a protest.

Eagle-eyed sleuths zoomed in on the watch and found out that it was a Mavado Museum Classic which retails at $595.

While that’s hardly Rolex-level, it did prompt some questions.

“When in a dusty area near the border it is always important to be stylish with a designer watch and all white….in the dust…Apparently she wasn’t there long,” commented one respondent.

“Of course it was a contrived display,” remarked another. “The body language, the pose, the clothes. Everything there is screaming, “I need to look good for the cameras”.

“She seems to be doing pretty well for a bartender who couldn’t afford an apartment 6 months ago!” commented another.

“But muh student loans,” added another.

Trump Rape Accuser Says ‘Rape is Sexy’ During Bizarre CNN Meltdown

Well, that was awkward.

Published

on

Trump rape accuser E. Jean Carroll told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that rape is “sexy” during a bizarre meltdown interview.

Carroll became the latest woman to accuse Trump of rape, claiming he sexually assaulted her in a dressing room in high-end department store, Bergdorf Goodman back in the 1990’s.

However, during her CNN appearance, Carroll said her experience with Trump “was not sexual” and that she was not “thrown on the ground and ravished”.

Cooper responded, “I think most people think of rape as a violent assault…”

“I think most people think of rape as being sexy,” said Carroll, stunning Cooper, who immediately went to break but not before Carroll had the chance to say, “Think of the fantasies”.

When Cooper asked Carroll to hold over, she fixed him with a glare and said, “You’re fascinating to talk to”.

Cooper laughed, which seemed to prompt a crazed look in Carroll’s eyes.

Meanwhile, in a newly uncovered appearance on Charlie Rose’s show from back in 1995, Carroll explains how “women love” the idea of being dragged into a cave by a man wielding a club.

Yes, really.

“When was the last time you took a big old club….” Carroll asked Rose.

It appears that she has had a fixation with rape for the past 25 years.
