Jordan Peterson and Brett Kavanaugh

One of the major major flaws on the right is the reluctance to the point of refusal to back its side in a fight. Donald Trump is almost unique in his willingness to contest on every patch of disputed territory. On the left, no position is ever abandoned. McCarthyism, an entirely leftist meme when it began, is now used by everyone as a synonym for smearing the blameless as part of a partisan attack more than seventy years since the left began the savaging of his character. The reality is that McCarthy was 100% right about the existence of communist agents in the State Department, and yet, even now, only a handful will say a good word about one of the bravest statesmen who has ever lived.

Jordan Peterson is on our side. He hates the left and he hates their dishonesty and the ruin their march through the institutions has brought. He understands that wherever the left are in control they cause massive harm and destruction. And till now he has not put a foot wrong in fighting our fights and defending, and even extending, our positions. And even before now I have listened to no end of people without one one-hundredth of the influence for good he has had look down on him and his efforts to preserve our Western way of life.

What has now made many dismiss Peterson was his off-the-top-of-his-head comment – now retracted – that perhaps Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed but then resign and allow someone less divisive be appointed in his place. He didn’t come out in favour of the Democrat position. He didn’t argue that Christine Blasey Ford had made her case. He didn’t suggest that Trump should find some compromise candidate who would be more amenable to his enemies. He just thought that once the confirmation was completed, then perhaps Kavanaugh might resign as a means of bringing the two sides closer together.

When I heard he had said this, I did roll my eyes. But it reminded me, as if I needed to be reminded, how difficult it is to understand politics. I did notice that no one on the Democrat side picked up this suggestion since it really has no potential. There is no possibility for compromise. And it is an oddity that even after all he has been through, that Peterson still thinks there is an ounce of good will on the left side of politics, that there are people who would understand such a compromise and work with the Republicans to find a candidate that would satisfy the aims of both sides at one and the same time.

But you know what? I don’t look to Peterson for his political judgement. His is better than almost anyone I know, but it’s not perfect (and neither is mine nor yours). But what I do know is that ninety percent of everything he says and does is working to roll back the left, from our institutions and from the mind-set of the young. This is hard work which I not only admire him for, but wish that he may long continue his work in these fields.

But to his critics on “the right” I feel only an anger at their wanton stupidity in not backing him to the hilt, and for trying to pull him down and in this way helping to advance the agendas of the left. Look at this:

Typical on the right, and how does this help our side in anything? What a smug jerk this chap is! Infuriating and far far more politically ignorant than anything Jordan Peterson has ever said or done.

    Fifth paragraph, I think you mean Peterson, not Kavanaugh?

  2. pete m

    He has expressed regret now for not supporting Kavanaugh

  3. MPH

    I think Peterson and one of the Weinstein brothers he was having the discussion with made the mistake of abstracting the scenario into an isolated one-off thought experiment, when in fact it is another battle that is so intrinsically linked to the ongoing war that isolated analysis is irrelevant and potentially damaging.

    7 & and one half minutes of beta male rationalization is about 7 and one half minute more than I can stand.

  5. AussieMAGA

    Peterson and Libertarianism are both cuckoldry.

  6. I must admit that I was absolutely gobsmacked when Peterson made that suggestion. It would have played into the arms of the Left and given them an absolute field day denouncing the Republicans and pronouncing this as an admission of guilt. Those who believed that Kavanaugh was telling the truth would have suddenly had their doubts.

  7. Tel

    And it is an oddity that even after all he has been through, that Peterson still thinks there is an ounce of good will on the left side of politics, that there are people who would understand such a compromise and work with the Republicans to find a candidate that would satisfy the aims of both sides at one and the same time.

    To me that proves that Peterson is a good man at heart, although not particularly bright.

    The current batch of “Progressives” have made it crystal clear that they have absolutely no interest in compromise, and see any olive branch offered as a sign of weakness. The only thing “divisive” about Kavanaugh is that he supports the US Constitution (as all of them claim to be doing) and SCOTUS won’t be quite as easy to drive a legislative truck through as it used to be. Even then, Kavanaugh was weak on the 4th Amendment, so the Dems flip-out shows just how childish they really are.

  8. jupes

    He just thought that once the confirmation was completed, then perhaps Kavanaugh might resign as a means of bringing the two sides closer together.

    What a brainfade. “Come together” my fat arse. You don’t have to be Nostradamus to know that the left would view Kavanaugh’s resignation as a victory.

    And it is an oddity that even after all he has been through, that Peterson still thinks there is an ounce of good will on the left side of politics, that there are people who would understand such a compromise and work with the Republicans to find a candidate that would satisfy the aims of both sides at one and the same time.

    Indeed.

  10. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Well said, Steve Kates. Peterson was being naive about the extreme left but still sees goodwill as a possibility with some. Democracy has worked so far because of this willingness to get along. Intemperate old bitches like Hilarity don’t help matters. Peterson imho was wrong to suggest a form of backdown re Kavanagh though. That would only condone and encourage extremely bad behaviour. After trial and error, every parent knows that. 🙂

    Some of the youtubers reactions are as over the tops as any SJW’s ‘OMG! he cuts his beard differently’. JP and West have something in common now.

  13. None

    He didn’t make an off the top comment he basically distilled a whole thought process into one tweet on Twitter and got blasted for it.
    He explained his reasoning on a longer blog post and admitted that perhaps he had not used the Twitter platform wisely ( one of his kids suggested that he should always provide a link to a longer blog post 4 comments like this). In fact he also admitted that he would like to give up Twitter but he’s got a million followers and he doesn’t know what to do with them.
    I get Jordan Peterson’s reasoning on this i
    Even though I think he was wrong and I think he also underestimated the hatred of the left. But he is an academic and he hypothesizes and theorizes which is precisely what he was doing in this instance.
    Jordan Peterson is just a human being with his own opinion to which he is entitled. People will only stop demonizing him when they stop making him a god.

    Eric Weinstein got it right at least: “not even a theoretical solution… ” (because of future game theoretical incentives). What I find very naive about these “still of the sensible left” people is that they have any belief in good faith action from anyone on the left. Power, pure and simple, is the game being played.

  19. JohnL

    Dr Jordan B Peterson is a Professor of Psychology……..

  20. Cassie of Sydney

    I like JP. He is a hero but…heroes are not perfect.. Who is? The problem for us in the centre and on the centre right of politics is that we have been starved of people willing to stand up to the leftist thugs the way that JP did a few years ago when he personally faced the leftist thugs at the barricades. We place them on a pedestal, perhaps too high on the pedestal. JP is a brave man however he is human. Also, he has also become a leader and mentor for young men who, in this age of fanatical and man hating femifascism, have become alienated, disenfranchised and marginalised. I too was surprised and disappointed with his tweet about Kavanaugh. I was dismayed with what he tweeted particularly considering his own personal and ongoing experiences with the vicious lies and thuggery of the left and its useful idiots. As for the right attacking him (and I like “Computing Man” aka Dave Cullen and his youtube channel), I think that Dave Cullen was disappointed with JP and why shouldn’t he be? We don’t have too many people of the magnitude of JP to fight the good war so when he “f*cks up”…what’s wrong with getting cross?.

  21. Paul Farmer

    While this young guy does come off as smug, those of us on the right support freedom of speech. Which leads to the testing of ideas. Barracking for a view just because it is made by someone sympathetic to our side with little regard to the substance of what was said makes us as silly as those on the extreme left. As Jordan himself says in his famous Chanel 4 interview with Kathy Newman ” because in order to think you have to risk being offensive” meaning as he goes onto say one needs to dig into ideas even if that means offending the person saying them. By Jordan’s own standard Jordan’s original statement was fine as was this piece ain pushing back on it for being a silly statement by him. Moreover I am sure Jordan himself would have no issue with it.

    What will ultimately win out against the nonsense of the left is standing on principles and ideas not just partisan barracking on the basis that the left does it, so we need to circle the wagons too.

    And let’s be clear, those who have read Petersen in detail will know he is not of the right . This is actually what has given him more kudos to speak out against the nonsense of the Left . He probably lies firmly in the centre albeit having started on the left. He has a lot of sympathy for sensible ideas of the left around protecting worker rights, some basic welfare net in society etc and he often talks about income equality as being a problem that needs to be addressed in the long run or society breaks down as people at the bottom are not invested in preserving the status quo of institutions that are the pillar stones of western society. Most of us on the right see income inequality as a non issue or a symptom of a free society . That said but petersen is a fierce opponent of equality of outcomes, so his views are centrist on this issue.

  22. PB

    Some on the Right have been calling out Peterson long before you thought of it Kates.

  23. Jordan Peterson seeks to be non party partisan, kudos for that, but most of his
    arguments show that he is not on the left side of politics. Maybe the context of
    his Cavanaugh statement was a thought experiment but Peterson himself stood
    for principles of free speech as per the US Constitution. The LBGT debate in which
    he was involved had parallels to Cavanaugh’s situation re the constitutional principle
    of presumption of innocence. It was personal for Cavanaugh but also important
    legally, Cavanaugh being a judge who upholds the US Constitution, not one who
    freely interprets it in terms of progressive ideology.

  24. Sinclair Davidson

    WTF? Strike one against Peterson. Clearly he is a compromiser – that reflects poorly on him.

  25. Jordan Peterson is on our side. He hates the left and he hates their dishonesty and the ruin their march through the institutions has brought.

    No, he is not on our side. He is firmly on the left and has admitted as such on numerous occasions. He vehemently objects when people accuse him of being on the right. His so-called big fight against Canadian authorities over gender-neutral pronouns was against being forced to use them. The fact is that he uses them with his students all the time as he himself has readily admitted.

    Peterson wants a return to the left of the 1970s when they pretended to believe in free speech. He is merely upset that the left has gone too far.

    Yes, Peterson has said some good things that have been helpful to many people. But so what? The early phases of Scientology also are very helpful for many people, it doesn’t excuse the fact that it quickly progresses to complete insanity. And Peterson is insane. He wrote a book where he describes dreaming of sleeping with his own grandmother in great detail. Have you read Maps of Meaning? I have and he’s completely bonkers.

    Vox Day and I have categorically taken this fraud to pieces. Peterson himself accused me of being a “misogynistic anti-Semitic right-wing ideologue” in response to a piece I wrote on him. So much for his stand against identity politics, when confronted with a bit of criticism he went full SJW tard.

    Never go full SJW.

    His tweet about Kavanaugh was appalling. So what he said in essence is, ‘if we win we should then give up.’

    He is not on our side. Period.

  26. C.L.

    But to his critics on “the right” I feel only an anger at their wanton stupidity in not backing him to the hilt …

    I won’t back anyone to the hilt who surrenders to the left’s evil tirades.
    I don’t care who they are.

  27. Suppose one day we will find a psychologist that is at least partially sane.

    I’ve come across quite a number of psychologists over the years, through work and social activities, and all of them seem to have issues. I’ve often wondered whether psychology attracts people with mental struggles and it’s a way for them to try and fix their own problems and then they start seeing problems everywhere around them.

  28. Crossie

    WTF? Strike one against Peterson. Clearly he is a compromiser – that reflects poorly on him.

    I realise you are being facetious but how can you compromise about lies and injustice?

  29. Chris M

    There is the principle of “not making an offender for a word” – we all stumble occasionally and wish we had said something different. This came across as Jordan musing, considering different options.

    .

    Isaiah 29v21 “…that make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and pervert the judgment of the righteous by futility.”

  30. Ƶĩppʯ (ȊꞪꞨV)

    In theory Peterson is correct, because the right uses principle to fight and the left does not. It’s yet another example that the left can’t be defeated with principle. In reality the notion that principle will triumph over the various deadly strains of socialism is as naive as expecting to co-exist with live viruses and rely on the power of hope and a prayer.

    The left are a corrosive subversive retrograde civilisational destroying force and must be eradicated by whatever means are required. Clearly we have reached the stage of politics by other means.

  31. I am bespoke

    You shouldn’t back anyone to the hilt, C.L.

  32. Tel

    Zippy there’s a sound principle called “reciprocation”.

    Compromise is a perfectly sensible thing to do, only if both sides are willing to compromise and meet in the middle. Compromise is stupid if the other guy always takes and never gives.

    There’s nothing unprincipled about it.

  33. JohnJJJ

    I’ve often wondered whether psychology attracts people with mental struggles
    Agree. Same with Social Workers. Every screwed up person I know ( who isn’t dead from drugs) went into ‘helping’. I blame the fading of Christianity. It was a pathway for these people to be useful,

  34. Bootstrapper

    The Left have no interested in “compromise”.

  35. It’s yet another example that the left can’t be defeated with principle.

    Conservatives need to start reading Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’ and start using his philosophy to fight the Left. Fight fire with fire.

  39. Jo Smyth

    As far as the left are concerned it has shown them that JP is capable of surrender. As far as JP is concerned, it may have given him the kick up the backside to show him any hint of surrender to the mob is just the worst possible thing to do. Hopefully it will have invigorated him.

  40. Don’t forget to include psychiatrists!

    I did think of them as well, but psychiatrists are doctors and I understand that one can’t become a psychiatrist until they get their medical qualifications and then psychiatry become a specialist field like surgery etc. So I’m not quite sure that can be considered the same as psychologists who need no medical qualification and where a Cert IV can be sufficient in many circumstances.

    Ironically, just after my previous post, my wife said that she’d received a Facebook notice from someone she hasn’t heard from for a long time and went on to say that the person’s daughter is still at uni studying. I asked ‘Is she studying psychology?’ and the answer was yes. I was not in the least bit surprised.

  41. Faustino aka Genghis Cunn

    “Jordan Peterson … hates the left and he hates their dishonesty” I disagree, I have seen no sign of hate in Peterson, and he strikes me as far more decent and sensible than to waste energy on such a pointless emotion or attitude. Peterson rightly condemns the many flaws of the left, but does not hate them. A lesson for you, Steve.

  42. The BigBlueCat

    But you know what? I don’t look to Peterson for his political judgement. His is better than almost anyone I know, but it’s not perfect (and neither is mine nor yours). But what I do know is that ninety percent of everything he says and does is working to roll back the left, from our institutions and from the mind-set of the young. This is hard work which I not only admire him for, but wish that he may long continue his work in these fields.

    But to his critics on “the right” I feel only an anger at their wanton stupidity in not backing him to the hilt, and for trying to pull him down and in this way helping to advance the agendas of the left.

    And we see it (his critics on “the right”) in a number of comments here. For some, just being “on the right” isn’t far enough right for them. I’d rather focus on the 90% and how Petersen is tearing into modern feminism, collectivism, neo-Marxism and the long march through the institutions rather than some minor error of judgement that he’s tweeted (and since recanted).

  43. …some minor error of judgement that he’s tweeted (and since recanted).

    Given Peterson’s profession and background, especially given his history, what he said is not ‘some minor error of judgement’. In every interview that I’ve seen involving Peterson, his replies are ‘always’ very measured and considered before he opens his mouth, often hesitating before saying anything to ensure that it comes out being understood as he means it to be understood.

    Saying inappropriate things and then apologising when taken to task is what the Left is famous for doing. The media especially does this all the time, making outlandish and often horrid statements that get published like wildfire and then retracted (if at all) as a footnote days or weeks later. What Peterson tweeted is a reflection of his true thoughts and was rightly criticised for what it reflected.

    Then maybe we cut him a bit of slack … no-one is perfect. He’s making great in-roads into egregious leftism despite his quoted statement about Kavanagh (which many others on the right have also opined in the same way).

    Saying inappropriate things and then apologising when taken to task is what the Left is famous for doing.

    No, saying inappropriate things and then apologizing when taken to task (and found wanting) is what any rational and considerate person should do … whatever political persuasion. What really counts is what they do next – the left rarely deviates from their “true” path, but a real conservative will re-evaluate and if they are wrong are willing to change their mind. I should add that those on the far-right aren’t true conservatives either, as can be witnessed by them not changing their minds (not the only criteria by which they can be judged).

    I would place Petersen as right-of-centre – perhaps too far “left” for those on the extreme right, and way too far right for those on the left.

  45. Here’s Peterson’s ‘notes’ on his tweet:

    So I thought, “What might I do in such a position?” Withdrawing, prior to a full investigation, did not constitute an acceptable option. But it’s not clear that accepting the position, given the scale of opposition to my candidacy (“my,” in my simulation of his situation). So what if the FBI cleared me, I received the nomination, but then decided that it might be best for medium- to long-term peace and the good of the country if someone who shared my views but who had not been contaminated, rightly or wrongly, by the horrors of the nomination process in question be put forward as a candidate in my stead?

    It was an error for me to use Twitter to express such thoughts, particularly in the condensed form that Twitter requires. I was laboring yet again under the naïve misapprehension (and should have known better at this stage in the media war) that I could offer an idea—not a certainty—for consideration on that platform. I should have known better not least because I had already discussed the dangers of Twitter, for example, with my son, who insisted over many months that if I engage in contentious issues online that I should do so with a longer blog post, and link to that with Twitter. I should have known better because Twitter appears primarily to be a forum where errors are magnified and outrage and vitriol almost certain to emerge whenever uncertainty about motive manifests itself.

    He would have been better of just thinking about it and not tweeting about it. Kavanaugh had been through enough, there was no need to fan the flames by someone who is supposedly against what today’s Left represents.

  46. I might add that the only conservative who really knows how to use Twitter as a tool against the Left is Trump.

  47. JP has done a fantastic job of returning a bit of common sense to people’s lives. His rise and popularity though reflect how endarkened the West is now, that common sense is so far gone that people flock towards it’s light as if it’s something new and amazing when someone flashes it at them. What he’s done for men as well is astonishing and he gets really emotional about it, we should be dragging lefty academics out of Universities and beating the living crap out of them in public for what they have wrought on society.

    My only criticisms of him is that he thinks he’s a historian. He’s not. He’s a psychologist who has read a bit of history. Unfortunately he has fallen for the “middle of the road” horseshit peddled by the left as a backup plan for when they are out of power. The notion that each side is both a bit right and a bit wrong and the perfect answers lie somewhere between left and right – well as JP himself would say; WRONG!

    There is only right and wrong. The left are wrong about everything, all the time, since forever. When they are “right” it is by accident and falls along the lines of a stopped digital date-month clock being right once a year. The right have been right about 97% of the time (which sadly has made us lazy, complacent and blind).

    It’s why we are the right, because we’re not wrong.

    You don’t compromise when one group says 2+2=4 and another says 2+2=6 by saying “OK, let’s make it 5 then” because then you’re both wrong. JP can’t see this.

    Of course the false “far-right = Nazism” fraud has pushed him into the “middle of the road” fraud, in other words his worldview has been distorted by the lies of the left, who are wrong, all the time, since forever. How ironic.

    And this is why I exhort people to use the term “far-right of Socialism” because it is true. But people are lazy and ignorant and obviously adding two extra words is far too difficult. I thought we should start low, it’s not as if anyone is asking you to go down to your schools and demand they stop teaching your kids how to shove a dildo up their arse. But clearly two extra words is aiming too high. And then people wonder why we are losing…

    The other issue JP has is he keeps banging on about solving “inequality”. He exquisitely describes the pareto principle then wants to break it, though he admits he doesn’t know how. The notion that all the wealth will eventually accumulate at the top is Marxist envious horseshit. The only time we should be concerned with it is when it is acquired unfairly – i.e. by corporate and Socialist thieving spiv scumbags like our Unions, green fraud energy, the Rudd-Gillard-Clinton types who enrich themselves via the State, public service trash maaaaatism and other assorted riffraff.

    He fails to see that everyone benefits from the pareto principle. We all benefit from smart, successful people inventing and innovating stuff that 99.999999% of us couldn’t dream of let alone assemble and sell. I couldn’t give a damn if someone becomes a billionaire from selling dishwashers cos I bloody hate washing dishes and am quite happy to pay a few hundred dollars for a machine to do it for me. Well done that man, now I have an extra 20 minutes a day to work on my robot that will exterminate all lefties make a perfect cup of tea.

    As to criticising him for what JP said about Kav, I’m in two minds. On the one hand I think we need to close ranks and we should save the criticism for after the left are a footnote of history. On the other, nobody tried to silence him, just rebuke him politely. We’re a bit angsty about giving the left an inch and rightfully so. After suffering RINO’s, LINO’s, Theresa “Tokyo Rose” May, Tony “Kerensky” Abbott, cuckservatives, Glibertarians and then the Trumpinator arrives to show how it’s done, people are finally waking up and starting to fight back (but still can’t use two extra words).

  48. candy

    I think he reacted as a treating psychologist perhaps ? looking to help people mend fences, see the other’s point of view, healing, bringing two sides together.
    His job is to ease conflict and find a better more peaceful way of living.

    Around 2016, Jordan Peterson said:

    “You know what you call people you can’t talk to? Enemies.”

    You can’t talk to the Left ie negotiate, come to a compromise, appease them etc.

  50. David

    I don’t think we need to back Peterson to the hilt. We may be grateful for him, as I, a Christian am, even though I know he is not a professing Christian, more by way of being a fellow traveller.

  51. manalive

    Joe McCarthy one of the bravest statesmen who have ever lived — right up there with Pericles, the Catos, Cicero, Bacon, Burke, Bismarck, Churchill, Eisenhower?
    Another view is that he was a drunken demagogue and inveterate liar who cynical rode the post-war ‘Red Scare’ for political advancement undermining US democracy by political repression in the process.
    Eminent historian of the Stalinism Robert Conquest:
    ‘… McCarthyism in general made anticommunism unpopular or unfashionable or unacceptable … [Alger] Hiss was thus presented, as against the real position, to have been an innocent victim of McCarthyism. Of course, he was exposed before, and not in connection with, McCarthy’s irresponsible demagoguery … McCarthy provoked, or rode on, a wave of “anticommunist hysteria.” This in turn provoked a longer-lasting upsurge of anti-anticommunist hysteria. Anyone accused of anything was innocent of everything …’.
    Ironically Conquest himself could have been a victim of McCarthy’s witch hunt had he lived in the US in the ’40s and ’50s, during his Oxford years in the ’30s he was a member of the Communist Party.

  52. .

    He was actually supported by a Bolshie trade union on his way to Washington as well.

  53. BorisG

    The reality is that McCarthy was 100% right about the existence of communist agents in the State Department

    he was 100% right but he went about it in a wrong way – and as Conquest said, made anticommunism look bad. In this he unwittingly helped the Soviet propaganda.

    This buys into the marxist notion of dialectic. Socialism is sickness, there is no compromise between sickness and health.

    There can be and must be no compromise when the left are playing generational genocide.

    We are being eradicated, replaced by barbarians the left believe they can control. No weapons are being used here, just marxist ideology, that says we must trash the family, trash the birth rate via gender equality and the encouragement of every form of deviance that does not lead to reproduction, trash prosperity with fake crisis of global warming and attacks on our energy and manufacturing. The list goes on, meanwhile we have our hands tied by principle.

    We see it here all the time … it’s a symptom of social media and people using aliases to keep their identity secure. Even the right has its own mobs.

  59. Like many, I was surprised that Peterson came out initially with that position. We all know (& of course he does) that you cannot compromise with the Left, appease them, or in any way concede territory.

    If you do have an alternative position that leans towards their thinking, it is best to give no opinion at all.
