Whitcoulls, a major New Zealand bookstore chain has curtailed sales of mean, angry white man, Dr. Jordan B. Peterson’s international best-selling and deceptively entitled self-help book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos because of the recent massacre in Christchurch where 50 Muslims were killed by a crazed individual who stated, among other things, in his pre-massacre manifesto, that he describes himself as an ethno-nationalist, fascist, and an admirer of the current political system in Communist China. He seems to have made no mention of Dr. Peterson, his book, or his many videos…as yet.
As the bookstore chain stated on their website:
Unfortunately 12 Rules for Life is currently unavailable, which is a decision that Whitcoulls has made in light of some extremely disturbing material being circulated prior, during and after the Christchurch attacks. As a business which takes our responsibilities to our communities very seriously, we believe it would be wrong to support the author at this time. Apologies that we’re not able to sell it to you, but we appreciate your understanding.
Just how dangerous are Peterson’s book and his ideas? Whitcoulls felt that Peterson’s book was even more extreme and potentially harmful than Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf which it continues to sell.
According to the extremist website, The Daily Wire run by alt-right hate merchant, Ben Shapiro:
Peterson was photographed during his speaking tour in New Zealand with his arm around an apparent fan wearing a shirt emblazoned “I’m a proud Islamaphobe (sic).”
This ‘aha!’ moment provides the very obvious connection with Dr. Peterson and various international alt-white, anti-Muslim hate groups that he routinely claims he doesn’t like and with which he is not affiliated. Nice try, professor. Do you think we’re stupid?
Clearly, Peterson’s deceptively-written book that he claims he wrote to instruct people on how to behave responsibly and to tell the truth in order lead meaningful lives and be a positive example for their communities is loaded with numerous dog-whistles and coded instructions to his millions of jack-booted, white supremacist neo-Nazi followers. It should come as no surprise to anyone that when Peterson’s implores his followers to stand up straight with their shoulders back that he is harkening back to precisely the way that Nazi soldiers stood at attention before their beloved führer who the hot-tempered Canadian psychologist seeks to emulate. 12 Rules for Life is nothing more than a handbook for organizing a neo-Nazi movement and is clearly a threat to Muslims, women and the LGBT+ communities and other white-patriarchal oppressed identity groups throughout New Zealand the world.
Cambridge University in England took the very wise measure in the last couple of days to rescind a proposed fellowship offer to Dr. Peterson to work with professors in the university’s divinity school to further explore the meanings of some of the ancient Biblical stories from a psychological and philosophical perspective — or so Peterson claimed. Authorities at Cambridge, like the New Zealand bookstore chain, obviously understand that Peterson is a charlatan and a fraud, and may, in fact, have wanted to use the university’s resources and dupe its divinity professors in order to formulate a biblical or more paganized-biblical foundation for his vile, hate-spewing movement. Cambridge University luckily caught on to what Peterson was up to and stopped him before he could poison the minds of its impressionable students or its faculty.
No word as yet whether New Zealand’s prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, or Senator and Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders will also call for the suppression of Jordan Peterson’s dangerous and harmful books and videos or demand that Google’s YouTube and other social media sites ban this angry and power-obsessed insidious, secret alt-right leader. It’s also unclear as of this writing whether schools in America will initiate a rigorous program of searching student backpacks and confiscating Peterson’s vile book in an expansion of a zero-tolerance policy for anything that could harm young people, like Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn or Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird.
Today, the preceding is satire. Tomorrow, versions of this post written by other commentators may begin to appear on various media websites particularly in the United Kingdom and the British Commonwealth.Published in
