Lindsay Shepherd crosses over

Lindsay Shepherd was the young Teaching Assistant caught between the Moloch of the modern left and a three minute video of Jordan Peterson which she showed in her classroom on communications at Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario last year. Her story was told here: Resolved: “there are no biological differences between men and women”. Her experience has caused her to have done some serious soul-searching, and has come out non-left which means, by definition, she is on the right since the left will not have it any other way. This is what she says at the end, and bless her for her bravery and moral strength.

What I want to get across is that I no way want to be associated with what the left has become. I am not a leftist any more, I would not call myself that. Does that make me right wing, or does that make me a centrist? I don’t know. You tell me. But all I know is I do not want to have any part in this disgusting leftist culture. Sometimes I see myself brought up as an example of leftists who advocate for free speech. I just want to clear the air. That does not describe me anymore.

From Small Dead Animals which also provides this convenient list from her presentation:

What is the Left all about?

  1. They’re pro-censorship
  2. They are victimhood culture
  3. They are all about moral righteousness
  4. They are taught that claiming to be offended results in a moral victory
  5. They don’t believe in personal responsibility
  6. They are completely intolerant of diversity of thought
  7. They are humourless people
  8. They want to make society boring
  9. They want to make it that no one can make a joke
  10. If you are not on their side 100% they will slander you mercilessly

No doubt many more can be added.

    It’s really weird but all those items 1-10 were exactly what people said about the morally upright religious right not so very long ago. Except perhaps the slander bit, that’s fully leftist, but the other stuff.

    When was that “People vs Flynt” case over pronography? (looks it up) those cases were mid 1970’s so that’s about 40 years ago. There you have it: pro-censorship, moral righteous, intolerant of diversity. Full flip over to today and all the roles are reversed. Nothing is as it seems.

    white pride is not racism

  3. herodotus

    Bravo. Let there be light – and white.

  4. Rafe

    That is an epic call for a North American academic.
    Once again i dont like the label right as an alternative to left. Better go libertarian liberal and a cultural conservative and asap get away from labels to policies.

  5. BorisG

    I would subscribe under all of this. funny to be with Kates on principles.

  6. Dave in Marybrook

    I quite light being a Right-winger, Rafe.
    You just have to be careful that the feral Left don’t try to peg Nazism or Fascism as Right.

  7. Ƶĩppʯ (ȊꞪꞨV)

    The left isn’t just an alternate view point, it is not part of the continuum of ideas. It is dishonest, disingenuous, devious and downright disgusting. The left is a mental pathology, a civilisational destructive force that preys on the weak of mind, the lazy and attracts grifters, losers and psychopaths.

    Lindsay Shepherd sits at the front of her couch. No lippy, no makeup. Switched on and putting herself out there for critique.

    Yummy.

  9. struth

    I praise this young lady.
    Unfortunately it’s hard to watch the mental thought processes of the young.

    She’s getting there, but not quite there yet.

    Good luck to her.

  10. RJA

    I believe she won’t be the first! The swing is going to start to slow down!

  11. siltstone

    very smart lass to tape that inquisition by the university.

  12. Nerblnob

    She is just behaving like a normal intelligent adult .

    It shows how far backward (or “left” I guess) we’ve slid to think it’s exceptional.

    Could say much the same about Peterson.

  13. GD

    Lindsay Shepherd sits at the front of her couch. No lippy, no makeup. Switched on and putting herself out there for critique.

    And no autocue or notes, just speaking from the heart. Very impressive from one so young.
    There may be hope yet.

  14. Just Interested

    She correctly identifies the ‘left/right’ divide nowadays, given that state ownership of the means of production and exchange has been decided. The old right won that debate (kinda).

    The issue is now more about how production and distribution is controlled. And the new left is winning that debate. By the length of the Randwick straight.

  15. Entropy

    When was that “People vs Flynt” case over pronography? (looks it up) those cases were mid 1970’s so that’s about 40 years ago. There you have it: pro-censorship, moral righteous, intolerant of diversity. Full flip over to today and all the roles are reversed. Nothing is as it seems.

    The difference between the ear,ybseventies and today is who is in charge. The group in charge wants to do the controlling of the narrative.

  16. thefrollickingmole

    I thought the interesting bit was how she pointed out she was “leftist” by default, honoring all the pieities and gloming along when she discovered just what the price of non conformance was.

    Shes clever enough to have seen it now its attacked her personally, but still well programmed on the other stuff.

    How many people have been successfully programmed to be “default left” through the schooling system?

  17. A Lurker

    No doubt many more can be added.

    #11. They are authoritarian in nature and will use violence and lawfare to achieve their aims.

  18. A Lurker

    It’s really weird but all those items 1-10 were exactly what people said about the morally upright religious right not so very long ago.

    It’s not weird at all.
    Leftist project, it’s what they do.

  19. Cicero

    The left is to politics what Islam is to religion. Both are totalitarian ideologies masquerading as something benign and both are cancer to a civil society

  20. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Lindsay is a brave young woman. Fortunately, she will still be protected by a certain amount of celebrity status due to her initial stance. She may be able to lead the way for others to come out with similar feelings, but others may also have less personal protection if they do so. Anyone young dismissing leftism in this way will certainly be putting their future on the line. The fact that Lindsay has to be seen as enormously ‘brave’ to do what she is doing speaks volumes.

    Currently academia is a cesspit of extreme leftism. It is worse than the media, because it informs the media and provides all the justifications. It could take a generation of honesty and realization to correct that.

  21. Arky

    Long way to go.
    She just realised she doesn’t like commie tactics when they are applied to her.
    Still happy for those tactics to be applied to the proles via deindustrialising climate change scam.
    Still happy for those tactics to be applied to destroying the nuclear family.
    Very, very self-centred.

  22. Arky

    The most concerning thing is how few Lyndsay Shepards there are.
    Given the lefts habit of eating their own.
    Most of them, when attacked do the old Bolshevik sitting in a prison cell composing an abject self- debasing apology to Comrade Stalin begging him to allow them to rehabilitate themselves for the good of the service they can do the party.

  23. Arky

    How Stalin must have pissed his pants laughing on reading those letters.

  24. thefrollickingmole

    Arky

    “If only Comrade Stalin knew how badly I was being treated”… shortly before the cell was repainted with “hint of brain”…

    I read in one biography of Stalin one of his usual tricks was to promote someone shortly before they got the chop. So theyd be suspected and fearful, then promoted and on a high, then gulaged or murdered. So i suspect he was enjoying the process as you say.

  25. Rafe

    And we thought he had no sense of humour☺

    Leftism is white self-hatred. The left’s moral supremacy is not a recipe for happiness, just a doctrine of control. Leftists believe in everything that afflicts neurotic, unhappy hypochondriacs. Happily, this means most of them will die young from disease or kill themselves — but not before they’ve spent their entire, pathetic existence trying to force the rest of us to be as miserable as them.

  27. manalive

    There you have it: pro-censorship, moral righteous, intolerant of diversity. Full flip over to today and all the roles are reversed …

    Before the ‘60s voting habits were largely determined by social class, religious denomination, occupation, rural or city; my parents (born 1912, 1915) didn’t know what left-wing right-wing meant.
    I’d guess that most medium to high level public servants would have been LCP voters in the ’50’s.
    As for economic freedom the Menzies Government was hardly a shining example.

  28. David

    At 0:40 she has writing that says: “I am still pro environment, I still believe in climate change, I am still pro gay marriage, I still take the bus, I still don’t have a car” — none of these things are left/right. She is still confused (not a put-down, just an observation).

    What is the left are statements like this: “You must be pro environment, You must believe in climate change, You must be pro gay marriage, You must take the bus, You must not have a car”

    That is the difference between left and right. The right don’t care what you do with your personal lives. The left do care what you do with your personal lives, and will do everything they can to control you.

  29. Dr Fred Lenin

    I am proud to be a liberteranian and moderate . Every Catknows how moderate and understanding I am,
    I’m the soul of tolerance and understanding , a true socialist justice warperson . As your minister of State Security and Immigration you can imagine the sympathy leftist white ants and criminal migrants would get from a Ministry I was head of . My understanding of the cultural needs of migrants would result in most having a happy family reunion back where they were born . The local born leftists would be given a sense of real acheivement as they dug the Lake Eyre canal to let the sea to affect Real Climate Change,no dodgy science required , just dig a very long hole, good healthy outdoor living ,no time to worry about gerbil worming or lie to try to “prove” it ,just keen on their next meal ,see? Removing anxiety without medication ,so you know who to vote for now Dontcha ?

  30. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Long way to go.

    It’s a long journey to make all in one big go, Arky.
    It took me longer and I bet it took you a while too.
    I hope some good people are giving her some clues as to what to read now.
    You are looking at someone not long out of high school and still within university indoctrination.

  31. billie

    Do we have any hearty stories of conservatives going over the divide and becoming die again lefties

    it would be interesting to hear, in a kind of watching a train smash kind of way

  32. André M.

    I thought this was a April Fools joke, but it seems not.

    Zuckerberg is doubleplus liked. We have always been at war with Sina Weibo.

  33. Crossie

    The poor girl may still believe in a whole slew of leftist pieties simply to hold onto some stability and continuity with her previous life. She has taken the first step, taken the red pill, and eventually will see more clearly as time goes by.

  34. NB

    Left = disgusting? Right now, I couldn’t agree more.
    For me it is particularly odious for its sanctimonious support for left violence.

  35. DrBeauGan

    She’s starting to grow up. This is good, but it’s a pity it took her so long.

    I’ve never been a leftie. I could see that leftism was shit from my first encounter with it as a teenager and undergraduate. I’ve never been a rightie either. Buying into ideologies of any stripe has always struck me as an offence against my humanity.
