Cambridge University’s Shameful Treatment of Jordan Peterson

On Wednesday, March 20, the Faculty of Divinity at the University of Cambridge sent the following tweet:

Jordan Peterson requested a visiting fellowship at the Faculty of Divinity, and an initial offer has been rescinded after a further review.

Jordan Peterson is an academic and clinical psychologist who has taught at two of North America’s most prestigious research universities (Harvard University and the University of Toronto), and whose academic work is prominent, widely-cited, and non-controversial in his field (see a list of his research publications here). His courageous and articulate defense of free speech, of our political, cultural and religious inheritance, of unpopular but incontestable truths of science—especially biology—and his radical opposition to identity politics of any kind, including that of both Right and Left, have made him an iconic figure. But what is by far the most significant thing about Peterson is that he reaches vast numbers of young people, often through Biblical stories and ancient myths, with perennial truths—of freedom, responsibility, the dignity of the individual, the transcendence of beauty and suffering and, above all, the liberating nature of Truth itself.

Cambridge University seems to be pozzing itself into irrelevance.

Patrick i suspect Kaki is abusing his flag button. I’m not going to post here if he can just delete anything I post.

@Quigley I think he did have a point at least in the latest flag. It was personal.

But he also makes personal comments, so please flag those.

Let's just discuss ideas rather than the people making them.

(You cant)

I did. https://patrick.net/post/1323785/2019-04-09-tales-from-the-right-aka-the-appeal-of-jordon-peterson-soon-to-be-labeled-a-hit-piece

and that concludes the attention you will get from me today.

A copy/paste article is exactly what I'm challenging you NOT to do. Tbc, nowhere in the article does the author suggest an example of a flawed JP assumption. Can YOU point out a single example of bad data or pseudo science?

You cant. You wont. You will flag critiques of your nonsensical posts, then post unrelated 20 thousand word articles.

I legit think kak is a bot, and a poorly programmed at that.

The same type of illegals that were employed by the Trump organization

In Obama's day the media would have passed over this story. For example: the only time WaPo started counting the number of lies a president tells is when Trump became president. Here's a suggestion for the left wing media: Why don't you count the lies every president tells and then the public would know they all lie. Occupational hazard.

Most transparent administration ever.
