Dr. Jordan B Peterson on Freedom of Speech & Political Correctness (Full Transcript)

Dr Jordan B Peterson

Faith Goldy – The Rebel Media

He’s been a dishwasher, a gas jockey, a bartender, a short-order cook, a beekeeper, a plywood mill laborer, and a railway line worker.

But today, Professor Jordan B. Peterson is best known for his work in the academic world. He has published more than 100 scientific papers, transforming the modern understanding of personality and revolutionizing the psychology of religion with his now classic book, “Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief”.

As a Harvard professor, he was nominated for the prestigious Levinson Teaching Prize. Now, at the University of Toronto, he is regarded by students as one of their truly life-changing teachers.

And I think that I speak for a great deal of people in this room, and frankly across the country, when I say you needn’t be one of Professor Peterson’s students to have been enlightened and inspired by that eight-pound universe between his ears, as well as his bravery.

Most recently, Dr. Peterson became the center of an ongoing national controversy for refusing to abide by the University of Toronto’s attempt to put very specific words into his mouth when they ordered professors comply with the genders pronouns policy.

Dr. Peterson’s vivid dissent over language politics and the political agenda behind it has seen him threatened and shouted down by snowflake students and the academic hierarchy alike. As a result of his public views on how “political correctness” violates freedom of speech and academic freedom in the west, Professor Peterson has become a cultural icon for liberty lovers, and a long-awaited obstruction to the wayfarers on the long march of the institutions.

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Jordan B. Peterson.
