Jordan Peterson on Q&A tonight @ 9:35 AEDT

Don’t normally mention it, especially since I don’t normally watch it either. But with JP on tonight, something special. Of course, everyone else wants to be the one who finally confounds Peterson, to be the anti-Cathy-Newman, so you can expect the usual suspects to be even more repulsive than usual. Don’t know how long I will last, but will watch as much as I can bear.

    I’ll probably be asleep early.

  2. ACTOldFart

    Well what ever else happens I am sure JP will absolutely mince that airhead Badham

  3. Big_Nambas

    The only guest that would get me to watch snowcone and his left/green audience would be Donald Trump.

  4. Bushkid

    I’d love to be watching, and taking my chances with interruption lotto, but have an elderly relative visiting. Will just have to content myself with reading the posts later. Mind you, reading the interruption lotto posts does give one a very good understanding of the inanity of the show. I’m just miffed I’m going to miss JP.

  5. C.L.

    Peterson ought to try smiling for his publicity shots.

  6. Squirrel

    It will be the usual set-up (particularly in light of today’s Newspoll). Stick with PML.

  7. Dr Fred Lenin

    Jp will only have the leftist feminazi snowcone and the audience to contend with . The audience will consist of 45 pc turnbull leftists , 35 pc alp union thugs ,10 pc gangrenes and 10 pc global communists ,a fair crosse tion of the Australian community.

  8. Ian of Perth

    For the first time ever I will actually (record &) watch this episode. Love JP and his intellect & intelligence up against the green socialist left of ‘their ABC’. It will be interesting to see the dynamics at play. I’m predicting JP 6 – Left 0

  9. Megan

    I would make an exception and watch on this momentous occasion but I am swanning down the Nile and will not have Wi-Fi at the critical time. Hope it is exceptional. And that it gives the show record ratings. Not that their ABC will learn anything of value from that.

  10. Megan

    s I am sure JP will absolutely mince that airhead Badham

    Not a difficult task. Most anyone here, usual dolts excepted, could spinal fillet her in a heartbeat.

  11. C.L.

    Obviously ‘Group Captain’ McGregor has been wheeled out for a showdown with Peterson over the latter’s refusal to use – or, rather, be compélled to use – the “preferred personal pronouns” of crossdressers.

    There’s a piece in today’s Oz where Peterson cops out on this matter. Very disappointing, but not entirely unexpected.

  14. duncanm

    I look forward to fireworks and some serious skewering.

    Who will win the chaps tonight? Interruption lotto should hit an all-time high count.

  15. Should be some big numbers tonight, may beat the night Janet A was on & she had 152 interruptions.

  16. the not very bright Marcus

    Snowcone will have been doing his homework ,watching Peterson’s you tubes ..seeing when the right time to shut him down is “we will come back to that point” …… but we never do

    …There’s a piece in today’s Oz where Peterson cops out on this matter. Very disappointing, but not entirely unexpected.

    Peterson has been quite explicit on the use of personal pronouns for some time – he will do so to be polite but will refuse to be mandated by government to use them.

  18. Tom

    Peterson versus the leftard ruling class, including the compulsory transvestite and the fat white communist anarchist whose only good point is that she isn’t a lesbian (Peterson should have a field day pscyhoanalysing that). If I can stay awake, I will make an exception and watch henpecked betamale Springer Jones’s attempt on the interruption lotto record. Hopefully, Peterson knows he’s up against a sewer of gotcha merchants. He’s already humiliated better rabbles than this one. Go, you good thing.

    We might also check out if the old TV still works, or just read the comments by Carpe and Co?

  20. Atoms for Peace

    I think Jordan will also have done his home work vis a vis the ABC and its’presenters.

  21. dover_beach

    But Peterson said he had no problem with calling McGregor by her chosen first name, Cate, and he’ll happily refer to her as “she.”

    Asked whether Cate was, in his view, a woman, he said: “A question like probably that has to be broken down in a variety of ways. It’s context dependent.

    It isn’t context dependent at all. MacGregor is a man. This sort of attitude is a losing strategy.

  22. thefrollickingmole

    I hope van fatham makes a girthy vagina of herself.

    One of those “people laugh at me all over the world” type gaffes.

  23. Arky

    Peterson is an idiot to give these bums legitimacy.
    He already has a larger audience than the ABC and its all potential downside for him in a rigged and stacked forum.
    One on one he could make a go of it, but in a hostile moderated forum he is fucked.

  24. C.L.

    But Peterson said he had no problem with calling McGregor by her chosen first name, Cate, and he’ll happily refer to her as “she.”

    This is how the left wins culture skirmishes.
    They say to people like Peterson, ‘nice life you have there; shame if sumfin woz to happen to it.’
    By which they mean, ‘we will hound you, we will mock you, we will bus in an audience to jeer you … unless you show us at least the beginnings of a recantation.’
    It worked against Tony Abbott. They destroyed him. It worked against the entire Liberal Party. It has worked against the institutional Catholic Church and a majority of Catholic public intellectuals.
    The ABC does this over and over and over … and over … again.

    By refusing to state the scientific reality that McGregor is a male, Peterson yields the field. Nor is a judo excuse allowable for him; on such vital questions – involving, as this particular question does, the very continuation of bedrock principles upon which a sane culture exists – he must fight. Falling backwards in your thug-tormentor’s direction achieves nothing.

  25. Jannie

    Peterson is brave but foolish to go into that den of thieves and muggers and perverts. They will spring multiple traps on him. What is the point of even talking to the ABC? It wont change anybody’s mind at the ABC and it gives them some sort of legitimacy. Do not talk to their ABC.

    Burn it down.

  26. 2dogs

    Alex Hawke just hit the jackpot if he plays his cards right.

    He’ll probably stuff it up, though.

  27. Dave in Marybrook

    I wonder how much of JP’s rise to fame is because no-one in the media-academia-politico complex thought that a middle-aged western male would politely and thoroughly trounce the frightbats? Cathy Newman certainly never saw it coming, and is probably still trying to work out why he never started by grovelling at her feet.
    But I think JP is up against it, because the permanent Q and A playbook will-
    Cut him short, with Springer-Jones’ “we’ll leave that there, moving on, there’s a lot of subjects to get through tonight” gambit
    Interrupt, with Butler’s bloodless snaky condescension
    Laugh, with the stacked audience primed to laugh at “edgy” Badham’s “edgy” snipes
    And run through the permanent roster of subjects, to which there are only one acceptable position.
    Refugees- let them come, or xenophobe
    Aborigines- collectively give them everything and individually forgive them everything, or racist
    Women- positive discrimination, or sexist
    Muslims- hand over the keys to the city and submit women and children as chattel, or islamophobe
    Catholics- burn the church to the ground, or enabler
    LGBTIQAs- bend over and take it, or have their tragic mental health as your millstone.
    Q and A is obviously not going to change it’s formula, not so close to an election, and with Jones so close to retiring undefeated.

    Tom, Would not think he psychoanalyses anyone . When I tell people that was my profession, many say ” I guess you can psychoanalyse me” No not trained in that therapy I tell them . However what people actually say to you, explains a lot. For example contestants on MAFS telling their partner that he makes them feel they are not good enough. Or husband saying I cannot make her happy and she, he should make me happy. Tells me they have emotional problems.

    I suspect the ABC might be quite stunned by ratings of this episode relative to their baseline.

    Will it prompt them to invite some more intelligent conservatives on in future? Of course not. They’ll invite fatham* back.

    I’m really glad that Peterson has already called out the ABC for being “tricky” by putting him on the same panel as that idiot fukwit in lipstick McHregir who is not a woman just a man with a skinful hormones and a pile of badly applied lipstick. Although to be fair McGregor is probably the epitome of the backstabbing bitch.

    I agree with you, min: As a clinical psychologist, Peterson won’t be freelancing an opinion on men with gender dysphoria like Malcolm McGregor. However, I think he’ll have an opinion of the ABC using McGregor as a political weapon against him.

  32. min

    Dave, He knows and why should he care . he is filling venues round the world , mostly young people. A friend went last week and was oldest there, audience maybe 25 to 35 . I will let you know as I am going on Wednesday.
    Suggest you listen to interview with John Anderson apparently his popularity went up after that Cathy Newman interview

  33. min

    If he challenges one lefty enough and thinking is changed that is a victory. I think he will win over more than one .

  34. None

    However as others have pointed out Peterson agreeing to call backstabbing fat with McGregor a she is denying biological reality and even linguistic coherence. But you have to remember Canada has laws that basically compel him to say certain things otherwise seriously he faces jail and who knows how these fuckwits maneuver their own tribunals to get at people like Peterson. I mean we’ve seen people use the New South Wales tribunalsto hound innocence and set precedence and the tribunal members themselves have done the same. And even the fuk wit New South Wales attorney general has been on record saying New South Wales state laws applies to everyone in the world. We are dealing here with fascists to the nth degree that make Hitler look like a kindergarten teacher.

  35. None

    Remember the transgender police -and my god is everyone as sick and tired of hearing about transgender as I am – is worse than the Gaystapo. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.spiked-online.com/2019/02/22/my-battle-with-the-transgender-thoughtpolice/amp/
    Read that carefully and note what these fuckwits want that if you at any stage come out as gay or as transgender that’s it; there is no going back because they are going to tell you how you should identify not you yourself the f****** fascist hypocrites.

  36. Dave in Marybrook

    I know what you mean, min- and plenty o’pinkos lined up, sure that they would take him down now that the element of surprise was diminished. But fair play never converted a lefty.
    Peterson might score a few strikes against the paucity of diversity and the poisoning of discourse in the Gramsci’s west. But he won’t win coverts from the left- pinkos watch Q and A because it confirms their biases. Conservatives watch Q and A to know thine enemies.

  37. min

    Tom, at 7 26 pm, I trained with the great Albert Ellis as well as ,over the years, many of his colleagues.

  38. Dave in Marybrook

    Peterson is smart to call McGregor “she”- because, at a glance, that’s what she is.
    I’d love him to ask Van Badham if overturning Judeo-Christian tradition to be able to marry her girlfriend hasn’t made her any happier… because, at a glance, she’s a miserable born-to-rule carpet muncher.

  39. Megan

    Carpe, if I miss the dedicated thread and you see this beforehand could I please have 129 in the lotto. Write to!

  40. None

    Oh my god they’ve got the stupid freaking loudmouth van badham on as well. Bloody hell the poor bloke won’t be able to get a word in.

    I remember a few years back trolling the Q and A Twitter thread and finding van badham whom nobody knew at that stage making these absolutely fuckwitted comments so I was having a bit of fun retweeting them with silly riposts and getting other people to laugh at her and she just went absolutely AWOL at me – one big sweary nasty speech, seriously unhinged – and then along comes Clem Ford telling her to block me because I’m some sort of dangerous egg or something ( i e a woman who didn’t subscribe to their fuckwittage) and she replies yes my captain (she really did call her captain) and so she does. Talk about a hive mind imbecile. A month or so later Tim Blair picks up on her fuckwittery and sure enough suddenly she’s writing for the guardian and appearing on their ABC. It’s as if you can find the worst person in the Twitter sewer you can guarantee they will have a permanent gig in some lefty media outlets sooner rather than later. I never swore on Twitter but now I’m thinking I really should have given them what for.

    Alright, get in here,everyone.
    This will be epic.

  42. Dave in Marybrook

    If you’re rounding up Interruption Lotto, Carpe-
    I’m calling 100.
    As Pratchett would say, one-million-to-one chances tend to come in, nine times out of ten.

  43. Tailgunner

    Get Up/antifa protesters stop proceedings…
    8/1…10/1??

  44. Pete of Perth

    Carpe, you will need one of these: 7 digit counter_ 130v AC

  45. Mater

    Carpe,
    How about a new version of lotto for a special event? We could call it Peterson lotto.
    How many times will Jordan be forced to repeat:

    “I didn’t say that!”
    “I’m not saying…”
    “I’ve never said that”
    “No, I didn’t say…”
    “That isn’t what I said!”

    Or some other similar variation, to counter the verballing.

  46. cohenite

    Put me down for 143 and for snowcone to get a kinked neck.

  47. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Carpe, put me down for 84, please.

  48. Percy Popinjay

    Peterson said he had no problem with calling McGregor by her chosen first name, Cate, and he’ll happily refer to her as “she.”

    FFS, since when has playing nice with these monumental imbeciles ever achieved anything? Oh, that’s right, never.

    Cap’n Cate is a man pretending to be a woman (and doing a pretty piss poor job of it).

    Indulging the lunatic’s fantasies simply legitimises them. As noted above, this a pathetic cop out by Peterson. Not good enough.

  49. Mater

    This episode is going global, and the ABC know it. It not going to be the usual interruption train wreck as the back lash could be HUGE.
    Watch for a new approach. Verballing is my guess. He’ll be forced to spend the whole night explaining what he didn’t say. Likely an effective tactic, if you don’t want him to get his message across whilst making him look defensive.
    Watch this space.

  50. Pete of Perth

    Mater, plus given an uncomfortable chair with a short leg.

  51. Tailgunner

    Just turned on the teev..
    What the Fuck was that crap?

    …and seated within whiffing distance of Van Badham.

    +1

    And there won’t be any “so what you’re say is…” either.
    They’ll just state the misrepresentation as fact with no preamble.

  55. 132andBush

    Snap, Mater.

    Same as that wad of smug from New Zealand did in the vid I linked to on the OF, earlier today.

  56. Fleeced

    I don’t want to have to watch QandA, but might have to… it’ll be the first time in a while if I do.

    I admit, I find it difficult to stay up, lately…. not sure I can stomach wasting a “late night” on QandA.

  57. Fleeced

    OK, I’m done. Lasted over ten minutes, so that’s something.

  58. Rob

    Is terri butler the shadow minister for smugness?

  59. Mon

    The bit that I loved was his conversation with the alp chick.
    He certainly gave her clues on how to discuss a topic.

  60. Craig Mc

    Of course, everyone else wants to be the one who finally confounds Peterson

    Well, it definitely wasn’t socialist-badge-wearing, OMG CLIMATE CATASTROPHE!!11!! girl.

  61. Melody Kemp

    I find all this lefty talk so interesting particularly as there is no palpable left in Australia but a lot of what could be called rightists if they were right, which they are usually not.. I watched this show and was appalled not because he is such a show pony and a reductionist and belies the complex sociology of not only gender but social class an ethnicity, but because he was really dumb.. His thinking is linear and has hissy fits when challenged. I love Van Badham.. my only regret is she called the game on neo liberal economics at the beginning and not the end.. when we got catholics instead. So all you ABC haters are we all supposed to put up with the moronosphere of commercial TV, the histrionics of Alan Jones, the anti-science and anti-logic, the simple-minded stupidity of commercial TV and the Murdoch and now Channel 9 owned press. For us who are educated (I am a freelance environmental journalist living in Asia) I know that the ABC is considered (or was, a Lao colleague considers the new watered down drama filled international programming ‘crap’ – his words).. In short the ABC is a national treasure that seems valued by everyone uninformed motto driven areas of Australia.. You don’t have time to be uninformed and intellectually lazy.. to think that anyone who offers a contrary opinion is a left when you don’t its apparent to me, know what a left wing view looks life.
