@firmware_pimp Combine that with the fact he was saying he can’t breathe even when in his car and the fact that these 5 police officers do not only have to control the guy but are under acute danger because of the crowd forming. I’m still certain that if the crowd wouldn’t have formed or if it would have behaved that the criminal would be alive. The only reason he was on the ground for 12 mins was because the police officers were in perceived danger from a hostile crowd. It’s a disgrace what they did to chauvin and it is a disgrace that no higher court has the righteousness to take up the case.
@deeplydisturbed Ugh, some people here have such a distorted view of Peterson that they think the title of this podcast is meant to be taken seriously. If you would have listened to the first 4 mins of it, you’d know that it was sarcasm.
The criticism of Peterson being too much of a proponent of gynocentrism is fair and well taken but this is the part I take issue with on here, when people listened to one minute of a compilation of Peterson being pro woman and therefore think he must be a man without any points whatsoever.
Peterson has made it his mission (to his detriment) to stand up against cancel culture and social marxism and for freedom of speech. This is another point in case. He has Rife on after him being cancelled and actually being pro Rife.
Then following it with a complete non sequitur and additionally with an obviously false statement. „There is no such thing as an offensive joke“. Clearly there is. Obviously there is. Some jokes are funny only because they are offensive. That there are offensive jokes does not mean they should not be laughed at or that they should not be made.
This post was an absolute masterclass in misunderstanding something and then making an absolute fool of yourself because of your own flawed narratives.Read More
@Typo-MAGAshiv I agree on a personal level but that’s not how a large chunk of the population sees it unconsciously. They are looking for thought leaders. They are looking for the guy they can abduct responsibility to and then just do whatever he thinks is right. So even though I do not need that, we as a whole need that as the instinct of the masses will win over the work of thinking of individuals. That’s why it would be good to choose these people wisely. Gustave Le Bon wrote a whole book on how mass psychology trumps individual virtue, we should not forget that.
I would prefer a Jordan Peterson
I wouldn't. He has a lot of admirable qualities, and he has done a lot of good in the world, but at the end of the day he's a pill-headed, gynocentric bloopie.
Really, I don't look at any of these people as "thought leaders" so much as just "food for thought".
@Typo-MAGAshiv I believe both to be rather genuine as evidenced by their life decisions up until now, though they seem to be pragmatists and not guided by principle which, to me, makes them irrelevant as political commentators. Bringing attention to stuff they can still do and even do well, but they are not useful in guiding people’s opinions. Couple that with the cult of personality surrounding people like Tucker and you got a part of the populace guided by the feeling of the day of these people. I still don’t see them as self-contradictory and plain wrong as the hosts of left wing networks, as they are at least sometimes right, but their wavering nature makes it a dangerous play to rely on their sway. I don’t see them as good opinion leaders for a better future, but rather a risky gamble. If we have to have people that are followed blindly, I would prefer a Jordan Peterson any day of the week as the leading figure of the right as at least he’s consistent and a principled argumentator.Read More
Is anyone of the right wingers in here fond of Tucker Carlson
Yes. I'm not a fanboy, but I appreciate most of his work.
or Candace Owens
Some of her work is decent, but I still suspect her "conversion" to conservatism is fake. Photogenic liberal black chick? Disappears in the crowd. Photogenic conservative black chick? Watch the money roll in as so many cucksevatives want to prove how not-racist they are, not realizing that caring that much about "muh diversity" undermines that.
or the like?
No one else leaps to mind whom I like at the moment.
@SpermBasedLifestyle This reaction is the one I feared would become the norm for people finding this site. We have strayed from the path and content that was layed out by the great posters of the past. The guy here is not wrong. The value of TRP does not lie in TRP.red, there’s little value here besides the fact that you can speak freely.
Is anyone of the right wingers in here fond of Tucker Carlson or Candace Owens or the like? I find myself annoyed when listening to these people because they don’t seem to have any guiding principles for their stances. Most of the time you can break down their stances into “I would like to be the world to be like this now”. Over the years they also contradicted themselves regularly. I know why left wingers hate them the way the right hates the MSNBC hosts. They are plagued by the same issues. For all of these people I can see them being on the complete opposite end of the argument of their stances today in a few years.
There’s a few people that talk politics I appreciate, it’s those that are consistent in their values and guiding principles.
@Typo-MAGAshiv The part everyone could have predicted about the graph is that women score lower in happiness than men. This is a universal truth. I bet even the men in WW2 were happier than the women at home. The joke with the woman saying “Yeah men had it tough in war, but how about the women? They lost their men!” is not a joke at all to them, it’s what many women think is an intelligent train of thought.
