About :

I was invited to Queen's University March 5 to give the inaugural lecture/discussion of the Liberty Lecture series, funded by Faculty of Law alumnus, Gregory Piasetzki (LLB 1980).

Dr. Bruce Pardy (https://law.queensu.ca/faculty-research/faculty-directory/pardy) and I discussed the increasingly frequent requirements for compelled speech that characterize the Canadian sociopolitical landscape.

The entire event was, in a word, surreal. Initial controversy over its acceptability rose to the point where the Dean of the Law School William Flanagan and Principal of Queen’s Daniel Woolf wrote missives in defence of free speech (the former: http://bit.ly/2EQJDm3; the latter: http://bit.ly/2tJB8VB). The Queen's University "Human Rights Office" posted a link to the Levana Gender Advocacy Centre and Education on Queer Issues Project "active support" efforts during this event at their “Trans-Positive and People of Colour Positive Chill-In” in Dunning Hall, room 11, where there was coloring pages, music, food, and discussion.

The 900 or so people who attended (who comported themselves admirably and thoughtfully throughout) were subject to a continual 90-minute barrage of noise generated by the protestors, who leaped up on the stained glass windows lining the hall and banged continually on them, breaking one. Inside, we could see shadowy figures dimly outlined through the colored glass. The outside doors were barricaded. One protestor was caught on film saying "Lock them in and burn it down." The din was substantial and ominous, although it is much attenuated in this video, due to the nature of the microphones used, which were designed to pick up speech close at hand.

The protestor who broke the window was arrested, but not before she bit a policeman, attempted to kick the back window out of a police cruiser, and was found to be in possession of a garrotte, a particularly brutal weapon with no defensive utility whatsoever (http://bit.ly/2HoTDAu). The man who cursed so profoundly and eloquently near the beginning of the lecture accosted me and my crew after the talk, and yelled and cursed and threatened at close quarters during our 200-yard walk from the venue to the parkade.

No one who was at this event will forget it.

Not good. Not good at all.

The protestors are like chaos beating at the doors of order. Chaos doesn't need a real reason to be irrational, chaos is by itself irrational for no reason. As Jordan said, (I paraprhase), you never know if you are winning the battle or not. The real battle is with the chaos in our own minds and hearts in any given moment. These protestors are a reflection of that inner chaos we each have to contend with... so, be genuinely compassionate towards them and it will cultivate the compassion that we have for our own challenge.

What about a law protecting my group, human beings from being killed in governmental disputes, wars. A law compelling speech is basically a law compelling thought. Thought crime will follow. Hello Mr Orwell.

Mr Peterson, the writers of this narrative have organsed protesters.

What happens when sent to prison, re-programming?

The left has lost its mind and have embraced their delusions of grandeur. The right will restore order. Globalism will be defeated. We will triumph over the enemy.

37:00 ok lets just take this at 100% objective unbiased face value.
Peterson is discussing the positive factors that the world is getting better as poverty is declining and life standards are rising globally. The people outside are banging on the windows protesting against every word he says.
THUS, these freaks outside are in FACT, right then and there, protesting AGAINST the global level of poverty declining being a good thing, so what conclusion can we draw then? They're fucking facists!

It's not OUR fault if THEY dont comprehend what they are protesting against.
If THEY are actually protesting against a person saying things like "thank god the poverty in the world has gone down", then THEY have THEIR OWN responsibility of being aware that they are now in FACT protesting AGAINST that statement. Which in direct consequence means that they are supporting the OPPOSITE, which in this case would be the INCREASE of poverty and misery in the world.

That's a simple objective logical FACT. So these people do NOT stand for trans-rights or free speech or a better world.
They stand for increased poverty, childbirth mortality and lower living standards in the world.
Because they protest AGAINST what peterson talks about, and THAT Is what he is talking about.
So, by pure objective observation, they are FACISTS.

Again, its not MY fault that they are too dumb to listen to what the hell they are protesting against.
That's their OWN responsibility. And if they are protesting against THAT, they're facist. Period.
So i ask you all, why does the university allow facists to use physical violence during a lecture?
What a joke.

“Behavior that would be out of place at a 4 yr old’s birthday party”....truly sums up their behavior. Their tantrums rival a 2 yr old similar to what JP stared.

Serious, they should be completely embarrassed by such self-degrading behavior.

Jordan Peterson makes an excellent point about division into tribes. When I was young we called them all gay. Then it was LGBT, now it's LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ.

Leftist thugs are so stupid that they don't realize that by jumping up and down and shouting like apes, they just make all the decent people despise and mock them. I wonder if Jordan paid them to be his foil.

Dr. Peterson, I wish I had you as a teacher in university. I believe it was because of the things you say that I've come to grasp with how poweful and significant the concept of responsability is and I now do my best to drive my life based on that.

Regardless of all the pressure and harassment comes your way, please keep it up.
Thanks.
Cheers from Brazil!

You hear the barbarians here? The professors and administrators at Queen's University are responsible for that. This is exactly what they inculcate in these young minds. And notice they did not lift a finger to stop it. This is outcome they are aiming for. Notice also that the local political authorities have clearly ordered the police not to interfere with their pet thugs. State sanctioned physical intimidation. That's the Left.

Wouldn't it have been interesting if they went outside and offered the group a chance to come in and join the dialogue? See if they could articulate their perspective and be open to an alternative one. I have no idea what they were protesting other than just the opportunity of free speech.

Another inspiring example of keeping your head when others are losing theirs". I know these rebellious kids well. They really don't know where they are much less what they are doing. But it is a mistake to think they're not getting an education.

If I had been in that audience, the protestors would have been permitted to leave without incident. But if they sprayed their shit on ME, they'd need a fucking ambulance. Speech is one thing, Assault is another, and I will throat-punch anyone who physically attacks me.

That banging on the windows is nightmarish. It's frightening. It reminds me of a little child trying to annoy their big brother or big sister to scream "stop it" and the quick dissolve satisfaction that that brings.
