Matthew A. Sears Retweeted Bret Weinstein

I actually think @BretWeinstein seems a reasonable person (much more so than JP). But "throw the baby out with the bathwater" is *exactly* what he himself advocates for entire academic fields because of his experience at Evergreen.
@BretWeinstein

Bret Weinstein Retweeted Matthew A. Sears

The "academic fields" in question have lured thousands of students into sophistry. They have now taken up arms against merit, the sciences, and the very concept of enlightenment.

It's not bathwater, it's sodium cyanide. And there is very little evidence it ever contained a baby.

I have gone from never having heard of Jordan Peterson to seeing him referenced five times in various places in the last two days.

Who the fuck is he and what did he do to become so suddenly ubiquitous?

He's getting his 15 minutes right now.

That much I gathered. But what did he do recently where he is suddenly everywhere? Like I said I literally went from having never heard of him last week to people won't shut up about him since yesterday?

Or is it just like one of those cases where you learn a new word and suddenly you see it everywhere?

Every 15 minutes has a cause, even a stupid one. So what caused this one, that's the part I don't get

He said some things "everyone" was thinking, without being manifestly a jadrool.

This video from October 2016 was the first I ever heard of him. Note he continues on even after a SJW transexual breaks the PA system:



Then he gained more notoriety when a grad student at a Canadian university, Lindsay Shepherd, showed her students a short clip of him in class, and for that was hauled in front of a SJW inquisition to answer what amounted to bullshit charges. She recorded the inquisition and it went viral:



But what really sent him skyrocketing into the stratosphere was his complete destruction of UK Channel 4 interviewer Cathy Newman, and this was one time where the interviewer literally was rendered speechless when he explained the BS of the gender pay gap:

He took a public stance against Canadian Bill C-16. That action aligned him with anti-SJWs of various kinds. His knowledge and command of rhetoric and logic in public forums and interviews allows him to keep the topic on point.

Thank you WildCat.
That interview with a ranting feminist Cathy Newman was the most recent thing...worth the watch.

Seems to be an ad hominem/poisoning the well. Doesn't bother to tackle any specific argument made by Peterson other than one out-of-context quote about lobsters.
He’s not an atheist, as the following clips show, so why do atheists pay attention to him?
Most of the time, that's irrelevant. In the interview I saw, the topic of god or religion never came up.

That's a great point he makes in the end about connection of biology and sexual orientation and the danger of disconnecting the two.

Also Witness brings up one of the main reason this guy is popular: he recorded his classes and lectures and put them on YouTube. That's a lot of material for an instant, viral marketing and since he doesn't have any (or any obvious) skeletons and seems to be a decent human being that just makes him that more marketable.

I didn't even know the word "walk on girl". Or that darts was now a popular spectator sport. Is there any reason why a woman couldn't compete in a men's dart league? It's one of those sports where you would think that men and women would be on equal footing, but of course all the players or at least all the top players are men.
