Jordan Peterson voted one of 2017’s Higher Ed Heroes

University of Toronto professor Jordan Peterson took fifth place in the voting for 2017’s “Higher Ed Heroes.” Peterson has been a vocal defender of free speech, making him a veritable bete noir of progressives, who routinely protest his speeches. In one case, a teaching assistant was even reprimanded for showing a video of one of Peterson’s speeches in class, which her professor compared to “neutrally playing a speech by Hitler.”

Campus Reform is proud to announce that Jordan Peterson, a psychology professor at the University of Toronto, was selected by readers as one of the top five Higher Ed Heroes of 2017.

Peterson has been a ferocious defender of free speech in higher education and has become a prime target of liberal activists all around the country.

In fact, Peterson’s views were deemed so controversial that some academics went as far as to punish professors who discussed or featured his views in a classroom setting. As previously reported by Campus Reform, this is precisely what happened to one Canadian teaching assistant who was reprimanded by her professor for showing a video in class featuring Peterson.

Lindsay Shepherd, who is currently a graduate student at the Waterloo, Ontario school, reportedly played a video of a debate between Peterson and University of Toronto Sexual Diversity Studies program lecturer Nicholas Matte.

Biblical Series XV: Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors – Jordan Peterson (Video)

This lecture closes the 2017, and the book of Genesis. In it, I present the story of Joseph who, as the wearer of the coat of many colors, is profoundly adaptable, courageous, adaptable, merciful and just. Even in slavery — even in prison — he comes out triumphant, because of the strength of his character and his wisdom. Betrayed by his brothers, he acts to strengthen his family; unjustly accused by the Pharaoh’s wife, he maintains his faith.

Biblical Series XIV: Jacob: Wrestling with God – Jordan Peterson (Video)

In this lecture, I present the second half of the story of Jacob, later Israel (he who struggles with God). After serving his time with his uncle Laban, and being deceived by him in the most karmic of manners, Jacob returns to his home country. On the way, he encounters an angel, or God Himself, wrestles through the night with Him. Successful in his encounter, he still sustains damage to his thigh, but earns the name Israel, and becomes the father of all those who to this day wrestle with God.

Identity politics and the Marxist lie of white privilege – Jordan Peterson (Video)

I was in Vancouver Friday November 3rd talking at an event sponsored by the very active University of British Columbia Free Speech Club (start one on your campus — if you’re a student, that is :)). I wanted to delve more deeply into the ideology on the radical side of the leftist spectrum, and to specifically address the idea of white privilege. Hopefully that’s what I did.
