It is so frustrating that police are told to stand down when Antifa/BLM or other radical left violent protests create havoc & even set up their own No Go Zones BUT when peaceful truckers protest on behalf of freedom, the government becomes tyrannical!
If you kneel to protest Police Brutality, then use the police to brutalize peaceful protesters, you might be a career politician…..
This is the Clown World the Democratic Socialists, and the legacy media, have us living in. SAD & TRAGIC!!
Meanwhile in Canada
I am holding out hope that our freedom convoy (U.S.A.) will not end like Canada’s. I can only hope our police feel like the rest of us and are as sick and tired of defunding and mandates that they will not arrest peaceful people !!!
In a speech on Feb 21,2022 Trudeau has clearly demonstrated the above meme is very accurate in that he sounded very much like a soft-speaking Hitler acolyte with very fascistic leanings, which he has actually had for quite some time.
Jordan Peterson has become a voice of reason in an age of otherwise insanity. His books have been bestsellers. His podcasts, interviews, and live debates have kept listeners glued to seats, absorbing every word. Peterson himself often tearfully recounts instances in which people have approached him just to say how he’s changed their lives. But now, a group of people he has dedicated years of his life to will no longer have the kind of access to his calm, collected, measured wisdom, for he’s decided to resign from his position at the University of Toronto.null
In a column for the National Post, Peterson outlines exactly why he has chosen to leave the academy: the diversity, inclusion, and equity (DIE) disease that has infected the entire institution. He writes that because of the DIE insanity that grips the academy, his “heterosexual white male graduate students […] face a negligible chance of being offered university research positions.” And, if his students manage to conquer that hill, because of his philosophical positions, they might still be rejected, as his presence in their education and development as scholars has somehow tainted them. “These facts rendered my job morally untenable.”null
The DIE, he explains has destroyed several areas of the academy. The DIE push to meet racial, ethnic, and gender quotas ensures less than qualified candidates are accepted. “This means we’re out to produce a generation of researchers utterly unqualified for the job,” and the “death of objective testing” all but makes this much certain.
For faculty, he describes them as “craven,” lying and paying homage to the DIE overlords in statements for the purpose of receiving research funding, “further corrupting what is already a stunningly corrupt enterprise.” What’s more, Peterson writes, these spineless academics teach their students to do the same.
And if the behavior of the individual professors was not bad enough, Peterson explains that “the accrediting boards for graduate clinical psychology training programs in Canada are now planning to refuse to accredit university clinical programs unless they have ‘social justice’ orientation.”
The universities will be required to prime students to become leftist activists or be denied accreditation.
“Similar moves are afoot in other professional disciplines, such as medicine and law. And if you don’t think that psychologists, lawyers and other professionals are anything but terrified of their now woke governing professional colleges, much to everyone’s extreme detriment, you simply don’t understand how far this has all gone.”
All of this is to say that the academy is an institution rotten to its core, gripped by the venomous tentacles of the DIE monster.
“We are now at the point where race, ethnicity, “gender,” or sexual preference is first, accepted as the fundamental characteristic defining each person (just as the radical leftists were hoping) and second, is now treated as the most important qualification for study, research and employment. Need I point out that this is insane.”
Before closing his column, Peterson lashes out in righteous anger at those making this takeover possible.
“[T]his is on you Professor. Cowever cravenly in pretence and silence. Teaching your students to dissimulate and lie. To get along. […] CEOs: signalling a virtue you don’t possess and shouldn’t want to please a minority who literally live their lives by displeasure. […] Musicians, artists, writers: stop bending your sacred and meritorious art to the demands of the propagandists…”
I think it’s safe to say that the University of Toronto has lost an invaluable member of the faculty, and the professoriate at large has lost one of the last warriors willing to fight for what they are too cowardly to fight for themselves.
Perhaps if more professors had Peterson’s stones, the universities wouldn’t have anyone left to push their nonsense, and, just maybe, they might start changing, but this is far too much to ask, I suppose.
For now, the universities continue to prove to be garbage heaps of terrible ideas, substandard scholarship, and a limiting worldview detrimental to all those who choose to walk through the doors, and Jordan B. Peterson will no longer be participating in it.
“He who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind. And the wind is rising.”
I look forward to seeing what Peterson will be doing with all his free time. I love his books, and if you haven’t read them, you should.
they were never shown how the New Deal was taken from Hitler’s play book they never read the Affordable Care Act that will help bring in the society as shown in Logan’s Run they don’t understand money or creation of wealth
The same experts who told us there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq told us Donald Trump would be an imperial Hitler like ruler…. of course the experts were wrong. But here is this little order from our current oval office resident… not to put too fine a point on it mr. Resident but no stinking way, lucky for us the Constitution is not completely dead… you don’t get to make the rules at least not yet
Whitmer, for her part, has largely dismissed the protests and the protesters with divisive and dismissive rhetoric, which she ratcheted up a notch during a television interview Sunday, when she claimed that the protests “depicted some of the worst racism and most awful parts of U.S. history” and that they specifically included people displaying “confederate flags, nooses and swastikas.”
Many in the media have uncritically repeated Whitmer’s claim about the protesters without verifying whether they are true or not.
After reviewing hundreds of pictures of the protesters that were posted on social media, and by media photography services like Getty Images, as well as news accounts from other media outlets repeating Whitmer’s claim, it appears that Gov. Whitmer’s claim is partially true, but misleading.
We were able to locate exactly two protesters who displayed swastikas on their signs while protesting. However, as you will see, no reasonable person would conclude that these people were displaying the swastika as a symbol of white supremacy. Rather, they were obviously using the swastika in an admittedly over-the-top criticism of the harshness of Whitmer’s policies.
The first one is not even technically a swastika, although it is certainly trying to be:

It should be noted that this picture was NOT taken at the April 30 rally that was the subject of Gov. Whitmer’s Sunday remarks, but rather at the April 15 protests that occurred on the steps of the state capitol. However, in the interest of being as fair as possible to Gov. Whitmer, and including all of the protests against her orders that have occurred, the above photograph should be noted.
The other sign featuring a swastika appears to be the only instance of a swastika being displayed at the April 30 protests. And, as you can see, no reasonable person could interpret the sign as being pro-Nazi or pro-Swastika:

Thus, the claim that swastikas have been on display at the protests against Whitmer is true; however, the claim that the swastikas were used as an expression of racism or white supremacy is clearly false. These protesters were not comparing Whitmer to Hitler because they are huge fans of Hitler and therefore also huge fans of Whitmer. Rather, they are comparing her to Hitler because, in their mind, that is the worst comparison that could be made. If anything, that is an expression opposing racism rather than supporting it.
Comparing Whitmer to Hitler, and suggesting that she is a tyrant deserving of “the rope” might well be criticized as over-the-top and/or unacceptable rhetoric. Neither of these displays, however, has any obvious racist intent. Nor would such displays even make sense within the context of a protest about stay-at-home orders, which have nothing to do with race or racism.
In conclusion, it is literally true that there was at least one swastika and at least one noose on display at the anti-Whitmer protests last Thursday. It is, however, false (or at the very least misleading) to claim that they were displayed as symbols of racism.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) has instituted some of the harshest and arguably least constitutional stay-at-home orders in the country in response to the coronavirus pandemic/dempanic, and as such has been the target of some eminently predictable protests.
