Beware of Friends Bearing Gifts: Jordan Peterson Calls MGTOW “Pathetic Weasels”
There’s an age old maxim that advises men to “Beware of friends bearing gifts.” And Jordan Peterson’s sudden ascendance to the throne as the unofficial spokesman for the men’s movement, who is assumed to speak for all disaffected men in the Anglosphere has certainly seemed like a gift to many. Finally, our voices are being heard in the mainstream media.
While I have initially given him the benefit of the doubt and accepted Peterson at face value, at the back of my mind I puzzled over what the calculation is. Why is he there? Why hasn’t his reputation been destroyed by feminists and the corrupt media? Until now, men have been persecuted for saying the things Peterson says out in the open.
In the case of one particular man, Roosh V of Return of Kings fame has suffered both defamation and a witch hunt which have had him blacklisted in true Soviet fashion. The Washington Post libeled him, and he has been kicked off of virtually every digital platform from Paypal to Disqus. Why the sudden about face by the corrupt media? Ryu dropped by TNMM to offer this explanation:
There are many, who insist that the current media coverage of Red Pill truths is due to a portion of the population awakening.
The power structure must be worried that so many of us have awakened from our Blue Pill slumber. This was my reply to Ryu:
This does seem to be all too convenient. I, too am suspicious whenever something too good to be true like this happens. I worked a decade in the bowels of the MSM so I am familiar with how corrupt it is.
The thought has crossed my mind that this could be an attempt by the power structure to subvert and take control of the men’s movement, steering us in a direction amenable to their desires.
Notice how carefully it’s being handled now. But the takeaway message most sheeple will get from watching Carlson’s report is that modern men are weak and can’t deal with women being empowered. This serves the purpose of making men even less attractive in women’s eyes while convincing us we finally have a proponent. (We may not.)
Peterson has criticized MGTOW and most of his messaging seems to be directed at getting men back into the workforce en masse.
Just a thought. I’m always skeptical of anyone in media or government.
What makes Peterson most troubling as an unofficial spokesman for the manosphere are recent comments he made in his classrooom about MGTOW. He called men who have dropped out because they’ve been pushed to the margins of society by a deeply gynocentric culture and misandrist legal system “pathetic weasels” before issuing a carefully worded apology. Peterson lectured his psychology class saying men need to let women tell them what’s wrong with them, which is what the Anglo power structure has been doing for decades – letting women tell “defective” men how to “fix” themselves.
One of the top-rated rebuttals to Peterson in the comments section following the YouTube video exposing him certainly makes sense:
Peterson completely ignores the fact that it is the legal system that stacks the deck against men. The legal system gives ALL women an inordinate amount of power over the man in an intimate relationship. This fact alone is enough to dismiss Peterson’s point almost entirely.
Is this really the man we want speaking for us? I’m not a MGTOW personally although I do have sympathies for that movement because I know how marginalized men are in Anglo America. But I certainly am a Ghost and a John Galt, and this trio of dissidents is troubling to a corporate-government complex that profits from exploiting men.
Peterson makes William Shakespeare’s famous monologue come to mind, especially when analyzing any of the tripe broadcasted by the MSM:
All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players; they have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts.
As I alluded to in my response to Ryu, Peterson’s narratives always boil down to getting men to participate in the economy again. It’s as if he’s trying to direct men back onto the plantation. Herding them to participate in a society that exploits them as expendable revenue producers for the Socialist state. Is Peterson a fake? Is he a plant by the power structure? Or is he the genuine article? We’ll be watching. And so should you, with a skeptical eye.
