More "vacuous words" from Peterson. And a bit OT (and I don't mean our local OT) at the back of it. And climate change denier to boot.
It's one big rant. 

Get Andrew Neil to do the interview!!

Just freedom of speech: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-51612541

Paul, it looks like the mayor of Aalst needs your assistance!

I’m not assisting anyone. There’s a union for that now. Do keep up at the back!!!

Not in Noord-Holland/West Friesland, we no do carnival. 

The good people of Aalst now have 40 days of Lent to repent for their sins.

The FSU does seem to be a love-in for angry white middle-aged men, and Toby Young is an obnoxious bully who pretends to be a victim, but they're right about this: https://twitter.com/SpeechUnion/status/1234763377437790208

The attacks on Professor Todd by the trans-rights activists are simply wrong.

This probably belongs in the Grammar thread, but I’m fascinated by the use of “no-platform” as a verb. In the US vernacular it isn’t even a noun.

Frank Bruni -- Liberal Censorship -- Bill Maher show

plus, another good clip from his show, on the same topic

Jordan Peterson -- Bill Maher show
Nice!

The classic Peterson is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMcjxSThD54 My favourite part is when the interviewer, Cathy Newman, loses the ability to speak. 

That is a classic. I'd seen it once before and it was fun to re-watch.

I studied all of Orwell's works at school. You know he was a spy/double agent, for example spying on the down and outs in London and in Paris..

And this is The Guardian exercising their right to free speech in form of a racist cartoon: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/picture/2020/mar/04/steve-bell-on-boris-johnson-defending-priti-patel-at-pmqs-cartoon
