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.

Why Trump Supporters Should Love Ilhan Omar

The gift that keeps on giving.

Published

Forget “send her back,” Trump supporters should love Ilhan Omar.

She has a favorability rating of just 9% amongst swing Democrat voters.

By making Omar the face of the Dems, Trump is pulling off a political masterstroke.

Journalist Travels to Ilhan Omar’s Homeland to Prove Somalia is Beautiful, Gets Killed by Terrorists

Tragedy of cultural relativism strikes again.

Published

on

A journalist traveled to Ilhan Omar’s homeland of Somalia to challenge stereotypes and prove the country was “beautiful,” only to end up being killed by terrorists.

Before President Trump’s tweetstorm in which he encouraged Omar to go back and fix her own country, Somali-Canadian journalist Hodan Nalayeh was trying to do precisely that.

Nalayeh returned to the country of her birth to tell “uplifting” stories about Somalia, according to the Washington Post.

The journalist became well known for her relentlessly positive tweets about Somalia. Just one week ago, she lauded the “beauty” of the place.

One respondent praised her for “countering the doom narrative propagated by many about Somalia”.

Another Somali writer praised her portraying an image of the country radically different from the stereotype of “victims trapped in a vicious circle of conflicts”.

During a video tour on her YouTube channel of the town of Kismayo, Nalayeh said she was hopeful the area could be rebuilt and revived, “Because this place is beautiful!”

On Friday last week, Nalayeh was killed in that very same town when al-Shabab militants stormed the Asasey Hotel in Kismayo.

The total death toll claimed 26 lives and it took around 14 hours for Somali security forces to regain control of the hotel.

“While Nalayeh’s death would seem to underline the harshness of Trump’s remarks, it was also a visceral argument for what many understood to be his central point: that perhaps immigrants should be especially grateful to live in the United States,” reports the Pluralist.

Dem Activist Asks Beto: “Who are you? I don’t know who you are”

Well, this is awkward.

Published

on

Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, who was once riding high on a contrived media fanfare selling him as the white Obama, is now polling at 0.0 percent in New Hampshire.

Also, some of his own potential voters have absolutely no idea who he is or what he stands for.

“Did you grow up with a silver spoon in your mouth? Who are you? I don’t know who you are,” asked one Manchester Democrat picnic attendee.

Beto’s initial response was to bend over and laugh.

As recently as April, Beto had the support of 6.4 percent of Democrats. He’s now on zero.

That’s no laughing matter for him.
