Canadian professor of psychology, Dr. Jordan Peterson, while being interviewed about his defense of free speech, is asked by a TV host: “Why should your right to freedom of speech trump a trans person’s right not to be offended?” He responded: “Because in order to be able to think, you have to risk being offensive. Look at the conversation we’re having right now. You’re certainly willing to risk offending me in the pursuit of truth. Why should you have the right to do that?” The TV host was left with no response. -GEG
A clip in which Professor Jordan B. Peterson explains why his free speech is more important than the risk of a transgender person being offended is going viral.
Peterson was previously embroiled in a controversy as a result of his refusal to comply with Canada’s draconian Bill C-16, which makes it a hate crime to not use someone’s preferred gender pronouns.
The video features Peterson, who is currently doing a series of lectures in London, being interviewed by far-left UK broadcaster Channel 4.
Host Cathy Newman asks the professor, “Why should your right to freedom of speech trump a trans person’s right not to be offended?”
First of all, the idea that someone has a right to not be offended is hilarious. No such right exists.
Peterson’s comeback is brutal.
“Because in order to be able to think, you have to risk being offensive – I mean look at the conversation we’re having right now – you’re certainly willing to risk offending me in the pursuit of truth – why should you have the right to do that?”
Harris, in order to appeal to the radical left, came out in favor of free college education, the Green New Deal environmental program, universal healthcare and free healthcare for illegal immigrants. Biden’s deteriorating mental state makes it likely his VP could become president if Democrats win.
Incredible as it may sound, the politicians and the media are blaming the tragedy on the fact that the size of the party exceeded the limit during Covid lock down! Everyone in authority is playing this story with that spin.
Chicago PD reported 13 police officers were injured, and there was $60-million worth of property damage. Chicago Black Lives Matter says they will continue to “rouse up” until the Chicago Police Department is abolished.
Thirteen police officers were injured, and a security guard and a civilian also were struck by gunfire. The Mayor and Chief of Police responded with stern words against the rioters. [Now we shall see what their actions are.]
The police department’s $400 million budget was cut by about $3 million. Council member Kshama Sawant was the sole “no” vote because she felt the proposals didn’t go far enough. Riots broke out and Amazon, Whole Foods, and a Chase Bank were vandalized. Police Chief Carmen Best has resigned from her position.
A woman, 73, who uses a walker, was blocked and harassed when she tried to put out a fire in a trash barrel. She had made a BLM sign to show her support for the group but discovered the hard way that she was dealing with people who had the destruction of America as their goal, not racial justice.
It is possible that Trump may be the preferred candidate of the deep state because he will have far more support of the American people than Biden would when the President declares martial law. That IS the end game of the deep state. Look up the definition of ‘controlled opposition’ and read it twice.
Both the US Surgeon General and the CDC have flip-flopped on this issue but keep returning to the ‘wear-the-mask’ position, perhaps as a psychological measure to convince the sleeping public convinced that the pretended pandemic is real.
All of these actions are unconstitutional, because they are within the jurisdiction of Congress, not the President. However, the government will argue – and the courts will uphold – the idea that the Constitution is suspended in times of national emergency, which is in the power of the President to declare.
Teams now are stopping travelers arriving in the city by train, requiring them to complete a health-status form, and advising that they face fines as high as $10,000 for failing to quarantine. Officials say that the effort relies on voluntary compliance – for now.
In a vote-by-mail system, a large percentage of voters, who otherwise might go to the polls, would not be able to vote. No one knows for sure what will happen to those undeliverable ballots, and it is not paranoia to believe that many of them will be mailed in by unknown partisan activists.
The new law would permit some voters, namely the elderly and those with physical disabilities, to request that someone else fill out and hand in their ballot, a practice Republicans repeatedly decried as illegal “ballot harvesting.”
Columnist Seth Barron says the lawsuit is being used to blame the NRA for the massive 200% increase in shootings, instead of Democrat policies such as releasing prisoners, eliminating bail, restricted police power, and cutting the budget of law enforcement.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has given a broad range of powers to local councils theoretically to contain COVID outbreaks. Among those powers is the demolition of care facilities, businesses and private homes, cars, buses, trains, and airplanes.

The judge said that the man’s actions “strike at the heart” of the justice system and his sentence must act as a deterrent. The attack on the man’s free speech is a warning to others who dare to criticize the government and authorities. Law enforcement and the justice system have set a double-standard that divides people and stokes hatred.
Germany not only pursues the post authors, but they are also considering punishing the platforms for the speech with a $56 million fine if they fail to remove it. Political correctness is killing free speech and stifling political dissent.
