So it seems like Jordan Peterson is everywhere now, from Fox News to Bill Maher to multiple events with Sam Harris.
I think it is worth remembering that the thing that made Jordan Peterson famous -- the issue for which he was willing to go to jail -- was his insistence on being disrespectful and rude to trans individuals.
I completely understand why the reactionary right loves Peterson. But I don't understand why anyone who claims to respect human rights would give him a platform. Why would you help advance the career of someone fundamentally dedicated to intolerance?
It is baffling. The only think I can come up with is tribalism -- Maher and Harris have been attacked by members on the left, so they see Peterson (and Charles Murray) as brothers-in-arms.
Tribalism is a very strong force, even among those who claim to be dedicated to reason and equality.
