A rather interesting point was made in this rather interesting video. It’s some video bits of Jordan Peterson. There’s a place in it where the author of the video puts up Leftist Hate Speech calling Jordan all sorts of hateful things (like racist, bigot, etc.) that doesn’t quite seem to match the video involved. I think I may have missed some connection (like the venue of the talk or some such). But overall, it is interesting stuff.
What caught my mind most was one little analogy. Jordan said that, like the North Pole where no mater what direction to go it is South, there is a Left Pole in political ideology. A place where no matter what direction you look, everyone “that way” is “right wing” (and therefore by leftist quasi-logic a right wing bigot). It does fit the apparent behaviour. Things like Leftists calling conservative Blacks “racist” (but not calling their White Hatred “racist” nor calling their Man Hatred “sexist”… as they stand on the Left Pole and those folks do not…).
It is a useful idea for understanding The Left. As a pole is a point, everyone must crowd ever closer to that one exact point or they, too, will be branded “right wing” (and thus: racist, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic, etc. etc. even if they are Black, Hispanic, Asian, Gay, Women, immigrants, etc.) Thus, too, the venom dripped if you say LGBTQ and leave off the latest additions ( what are they now? 2aSR+ something or other). From that Left Pole, everyone and everything else is “to the Right” and therefore a threat to their mind-set and made evil in their minds. 15 minutes:
IMHO, if The Left wants to make Universities and Colleges “Bastions Of Left Think” and ban all Right Think and Right Speech, they are welcome to it. Simply remove all Government Payments and let them go on their own way. Charge only what is necessary as rent to recover the cost of land and buildings. Let them pay salaries and pensions from their tuition income. It is only fair to not use my tax money to support an institution that teaches to hate me, and that teaches to stop my 1st Amendment rights to free speech.
