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.

Ted Cruz Slams PolitiFact For Claiming Beto’s Plan to ‘Take the Guns’ Was False

Fact checking the fact checkers.

Ted Cruz slammed fact checking website PolitiFact for previously claiming that Beto O’Rourke’s plan to “take our guns” was false following Beto’s assertion last night that, “Hell yeah, we’re going to take your AR-15!”

Back in March, PolitiFact “fact checked” a lyric in a Ted Cruz primary campaign song which proclaimed Beto “wants to take our guns.”

PolitiFact reported that Beto had “not called…for government agents to take guns from law-abiding residents.”

However, during last night’s Democratic debate Beto did precisely that.

“Hell yeah, we’re going to take your AR-15!” Beto proclaimed.

“Just a reminder, when I said it, PolitiFact (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DNC) rated “Beto wants to take our guns” as FALSE. Maybe they should buy one of his new t-shirts,” tweeted Cruz.

Viewers Claim Biden’s Teeth Were Falling Out of His Mouth During Dem Debate

Not great optics.

Published

on

Some viewers claimed that Joe Biden’s teeth looked like they were falling out of his mouth during last night’s Democratic debate.

“Joe biden’s teeth are straight up falling out of his mouth,” tweeted Christian Datoc.

As Biden was being asked a question by the moderator, he was moving his mouth around as if chewing gum or to adjust something, resulting in a semi-mumbled answer.

The optics aren’t great for Biden, who has repeatedly faced scrutiny over his age.

The Former Vice President also betrayed his advancing years during other moments during the debate, such as when he suggested parents put a “record player on at night” to help their kids learn words.

He also referred to Senator Bernie Sanders as “president”.

Biden’s behavior didn’t go unnoticed by some of the other candidates.

“Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago?” asked Julián Castro during one exchange.

Trump Orders Fightback Against LA’s Worsening Homeless Problem

Administration vows to clean up big cities by housing vagrants in government facilities.

Published

President Donald Trump has ordered a fightback against Los Angeles’ soaring homeless problem, vowing to get vagrants off the streets and into government housing facilities.

Plans are in place to tackle chronic issues with trash, rats, sewage problems and the return of medieval diseases which are beginning to take hold in major cities across California.

“Among the ideas under consideration is razing existing tent camps for the homeless, creating new temporary facilities, or refurbishing existing government facilities,” officials told the Washington Post.

“The changes would give the federal government a larger role in supervising housing and health care for residents,” according to the report.

Back in July, Trump told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson of his plan to intervene in big cities like LA and San Francisco, where feces, discarded needles and trash threaten to cause a public health crisis.

“You can’t have what’s happening — where police officers are getting sick just by walking the beat. I mean, they’re getting actually very sick, where people are getting sick, where the people living there living in hell, too,” said Trump. “We cannot ruin our cities. And you have people that work in those cities. They work in office buildings and to get into the building, they have to walk through a scene that nobody would have believed possible three years ago.”

According to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti aide Breelyn Pete, a “large delegation” of Trump administration officials already visited the city to discuss the crackdown.

Earlier this year, Dr. Drew Pinsky said the public health situation in America’s second largest city was in utter turmoil.

“We have a complete breakdown of the basic needs of civilization in Los Angeles right now,” said Pinsky.

1.5 per cent of rats in L.A. now carry bubonic plague. If that figures hits 2 per cent, the medieval disease will start jumping to humans.

In other words, if LA doesn’t sort out its trash problem and its homeless problem, the return of bubonic plague is virtually guaranteed.
