University is the place for freshman 15, new academic ideas, and tips on mixing drugs and alcohol. Frat guy tip: mix them. But don’t actually. A secondary effect of college is a constant spewing of leftist propaganda. Delivered by brain-damaged feminists of the ploppy subspecies variety. That’s the setup for this teacher’s assistant. She thought it was a good idea to discuss a Jordan Peterson video in the classroom as it related to gender pronouns.
conformity diversity. That’s where she went wrong:
Teaching assistant Lindsay Shepherd is facing censure from her department because she showed two tutorial groups a year-old video clip of Jordan Peterson debating Nicholas Matte over the use of non-binary gender pronouns on an episode of The Agenda.
For reference, here’s that full debate with Peterson and Matte.
Lucky for us, the disciplinary exchange was recorded.
So that’s disturbing. And totally fascist.
RAMBUKKANA: [Do you see] why that might have been seen as problematic by some of the students? Maybe even threatening?
SHEPHERD: I don’t see how someone would rationally think that was threatening. I could see how it might challenge their existing ideas, but for me, that’s the spirit of the university is challenging ideas that you already have… The thing is, can you shield people from those ideas? Am I supposed to comfort them and make sure that they’re insulated away from this? Like is that what the point of this is? Because to me, that is so against what a university is about. So against it. I was not taking sides; I was presenting both arguments.
RAMBUKKANA: So the thing about this is if you’re presenting something like this, you have to think about the kind of teaching climate that you are creating, and this is actually – these arguments are counter to the Canadian Human Rights Code.
SHEPHERD: It was critical. I introduced it critically.
RAMBUKKANA: Okay. “In the spirit of the debate” is slightly different than being like, okay, this is, like, a problematic idea that we maybe want to unpack.
SHEPHERD: But that’s taking sides.
SHEPHERD: Well, this is something that’s being debated in current society, and I don’t feel the need to shield people from what’s going on in society. Like, to imagine that this is happening in a university – it’s just bad.
RAMBUKKANA: …but this is like neutrally playing a speech by Hitler or Milo Yiannopoulos…
Did you catch how Shepherd says she’s not even on Peterson’s side, she’s merely presenting different arguments for debate? Right.
Daring to share viewpoints outside of leftism is where she went wrong. Universities, in Canada or the United States, are nothing more than incubators for leftist drones. Toe the leftist line, or be banished. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
Jordan B. Peterson is a mild-mannered professor. His crime is not altering reality to cater to transgender people. But the left is determined to make him the new Hitler. Simply because he refuses to fall in marching line with the modern left. Worse, he’s exposing the left for what it is. To a growing audience.
This teacher’s assistant was just made an example of.
