Dr. Jordan Peterson announced in May 2021 that he would be getting the COVID-19 vaccine, citing insufficient antibody levels. The esteemed psychologist indicated Thursday he had been fooled and has since made clear that, notwithstanding demands by both the Biden administration and Canada’s Trudeau government, he will not be fooled again.

Peterson was met with significant backlash in 2021, after he tweeted, “Off to be vaccinated today. Despite having Covid last May, my antibody levels appeared insufficient to prevent re-infection. Hope Ontario opens up soon.”

Despite having had contracted COVID-19 in 2020, the psychologist’s immune system had likely been dealt a blow by his recent recovery from a severe case of pneumonia and the “incredibly grueling” drug detox treatment for benzodiazepine reliance he received abroad.

Indy100 noted at the time of this admission that some of his fans and followers online expressed concern over his decision to get the COVID-19 vaccine and potential long-term health risks.

Peterson suggested Thursday that he “got vaccinated because I naively believed the woke force-mongers would leave me the hell alone thereafter. Fool me once….”

The psychologist was responding to a tweet from Israeli artificial intelligence researcher Eli David that said, “I got Covid shots in 2021, because I believed the claimed clinical trial results, and trusted the FDA. But looking at mountains of evidence since, I no longer think I made the right decision. These shots are much more dangerous and much less effective than claimed.”

Peterson told BlazeTV host Dave Rubin of “The Rubin Report” in November 2021: “I got vaccinated. And people took me to task for that. And I thought, ‘All right, I’ll get the damn vaccine.’ Here’s the deal, guys: I’ll get the vaccine, you f***ing leave me alone!” He underscored that the vaccine didn’t work to that end. The Trudeau government still required that he be tested for COVID-19 when exercising his mobility rights to leave and return to his home nation.

In a tweet Saturday — responding to a notice from Canadian state media that the country’s chief public health officer Theresa Tam was once again pushing booster shots — Peterson wrote, “How about ‘over my dead body.'” Tam and the Trudeau government have been pushing the bivalent booster shot on Canadians, many of whom have yet to get it since it was made available last fall.

Tam said Friday, “It’s still too early to stop taking the personal protective measures that have helped us weather the COVID storm.”

The Biden administration is similarly pushing boosters on the general public.

The Associated Press reported that the Food and Drug Administration has recently proposed rolling out COVID-19 boosters once a year, every year, for adults and children. While 80% of Americans have received at least one dose, only 16% cared to get the latest boosters.

Allysia Finley, writing in the Wall Street Journal, noted over the weekend that “the public-health establishment’s praise for the bivalent shots shouldn’t come as a surprise. Federal agencies took the unprecedented step of ordering vaccine makers to produce them and recommending them without data supporting their safety or efficacy.”

Finley appeared to justify the increasing reluctance of people like Peterson, stating, “Three scientific problems have arisen. First, the virus is evolving much faster than the vaccines can be updated. Second, vaccines have hard-wired our immune systems to respond to the original Wuhan strain, so we churn out fewer antibodies that neutralize variants targeted by updated vaccines.”

“Third, antibodies rapidly wane after a few months,” she added.

Peterson’s late rejection of the booster regime comes after he admitted on Dec. 19, “It’s worse than I thought. I trusted the vaccine process more than I should have. I thought the lockdowns and masks were a terrible idea but I still thought we could rely on public health and science.”

Notwithstanding this trust, now evidently depleted, Peterson had expressed skepticism in 2021, stating that “Covid is not going away. it will mutate, indefinitely, sped along in some senses by the vaccines themselves. And when is it a sufficiently ‘new variant’ to panic? How about when pharmaceutical company shares drop?”

The Daily Mail reported that Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla personally earned $50 million in compensation across 2021 and 2022 and that Pfizer’s has revenue tripled to over $100 billion since the start of the pandemic. Newsweek indicated that Moderna earned $12.2 billion in profit in 2021, mostly from its vaccine production. The company had not been able to turn a profit before 2021. According to the company’s earnings report released in February 2022, its “total revenue was $18.5 billion for the full year 2021, compared to $803 million in 2020.” As for Johnson & Johnson: U.S. News reported that sinking COVID-19 vaccine sales have recently hurt its revenue.

Jordan Peterson has been ordered by a Canadian psychology governing body to enter what Peterson called a “re-education” program reportedly over his past comments and speech that “may cause harm.” Not surprisingly, Peterson said Wednesday he “formally indicated” his “refusal to comply” with the demands of the College of Psychologists of Ontario.

Peterson posted to Twitter parts of a document from the College of Psychologists of Ontario that outlined its concern over his “public statements made on social media and during a January 25, 2022, podcast appearance” that “may have lacked professionalism.

The document indicates that Peterson is to work with another professional to “review, reflect on, and ameliorate [his] professionalism in public statements” and complete a “Coaching Program.”

Peterson’s stated refusal to comply could result in discipline for professional misconduct, according the document’s language.

According to a Wall Street Journal op-ed, the College of Psychologists of Ontario last March appointed an investigator to examine complaints about Peterson’s Twitter comments as well as things he said on a Joe Rogan podcast.

The Journal — citing images provided by Peterson — said the College’s panel in November ruled that “the comments at issue appear to undermine the public trust in the profession as a whole and raise questions about your ability to carry out your responsibilities as a psychologist.”

More from the Journal:

What are these comments? Calling Elliot Page, the transgender actor, by his former name, “Ellen,” and the pronoun “her,” on Twitter. Calling an adviser to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a “prik.” A sarcastic crack at antigrowth environmentalists for not caring that their energy policies lead to more deaths of poor Third World children.

Calling a former client “vindictive.” Objecting to a Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover of a plus-size model: “Sorry. Not Beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that.” In Canada even offenses begin with “sorry.”

The Journal added that the panel found “the impact risk in this case is significant” since Peterson’s comments “may cause harm” — and decided that coaching Peterson would help “mitigate any risks to the public.”

The College of Psychologists of Ontario declined to comment on the case, citing confidentiality, the Journal reported.

“Who exactly was harmed, how, when, to what degree, and how was that harm measured?” Peterson asked, according the the Journal.

Peterson also posted a Twitter thread telling the College of Psychologists of Ontario that he’s “making what is happening public. If the public believes I’m guilty then I will take the required course of communication and then resign.”

He added to the College that if its “allegations … are revealed publicly to be both baseless and politically motivated then a public apology and the resignation of everyone involved in the process on your side is appropriate.”

“Let the games begin,” he tweeted.

Peterson also appeared to take a page from Twitter owner Elon Musk’s playbook, setting up a poll so the public can weigh in and side with Peterson or with the College.

Twitter reinstated Peterson to the platform in November. He had been banned in July for “hateful conduct” regarding tweets mentioning Page.

Jason Whitlock Op-ed: The truth about Sports Illustrated’s ‘blubbery beauty’ is darker than Jordan Peterson conveyed


Commentary by JASON WHITLOCK | May 18, 2022

Dr. Jordan Peterson misspoke when he proclaimed via Twitter that Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Yumi Nu is “not beautiful.” We all know beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Peterson should have said the extra-plus-sized model is “not healthy. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that.” He undermined a fact with a personal opinion, and by doing so, he allowed the woke to once again dodge responsibility for their real evil agenda.

On Monday, North America’s most honest public intellectual reacted to Sports Illustrated’s decision to place an obese woman with a strikingly pretty face on the cover of its formerly iconic Swimsuit Issue. He retweeted a New York Post story picturing the blubbery Asian beauty beneath his proclamation: “Sorry. Not beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that.”

Twitter, of course, erupted in faux outrage. A white man impolitely aired his truth about a flabby Asian fashion model. Twitter’s social justice army accused Peterson of unloading a toxic vat of white privilege and white supremacy.

Unafraid of a brawl, Peterson engaged his critics. He doubled down on his contention that the left wants to redefine beauty standards.

“It’s a conscious progressive attempt to manipulate & retool the notion of beauty, reliant on the idiot philosophy that such preferences are learned & properly changed by those who know better.”

I say this respectfully. Peterson missed the mark again. He botched this issue. Beauty is an opinion. And we all know opinions are like booty holes. Everyone has one and they all stink. The left doesn’t want to retool the notion of beauty. They want to retool the notion of health. They want to reclassify obesity as healthy. Virtually everything the progressive left promotes is related to normalizing a culture of death, destruction, and despair. Abortion is about the right to kill babies in the womb. Liberalizing drug laws is about freeing people to self-medicate themselves into zombies. Defunding the police is about normalizing violent chaos within communities. Hostility toward religion is about removing hope, the lifeblood of civilization. Transgenderism is about the mutilation of God’s creation.

Jordan Peterson is known for speaking uncomfortable truths. He passed on an opportunity in this instance. The platform of the modern left is built on early 20th-century satanist Aleister Crowley’s “do what thou wilt” philosophy. Crowley argued the purpose of life is for humans to align themselves with their true will. It sounds great. Why wouldn’t you want to align yourself to your true will?

Well, for those of us who believe in a higher power, who believe our inalienable rights come from God, who believe that Jesus died on a cross for our sins, we’re taught the purpose of our lives is to align ourselves with God’s will for us. His vision for us is spelled out in the Bible. We’re taught that our nature is sinful, and we should avoid a “do what thou wilt” mindset and set of behaviors. Specifically, among other things, we’re taught that gluttony is a sin that will harm our lives and lead to death. Phillipians 3:19: “Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things.” Proverbs 23:2: “And put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.” Proverbs 23:20-21: “Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags.”

For those of you who are nonbelievers, you don’t need the Bible for evidence of the dangerous impact of gluttony and obesity. Check with any doctor. Punch it into Google. You can call me. Gluttony and obesity have been my weaknesses. The effort to normalize obesity is evil and satanic. Sports Illustrated is promoting death with its glorification of rotund runway models. Yumi Nu foolishly believes her ascension to SI cover girl is a symbol of necessary progress.

“I feel like we’re in a place right now where people are making space for more diversity on magazine covers,” she said. “It’s a big time for Asian-American people in media. I know I play a big role in representation in body diversity and race diversity, and I love to be a role model and representative of the plus-size Asian community.”

Nu is a disciple of the D.I.E. religion of diversity, inclusion, and equity. The D.I.E. religion is just Aleister Crowley’s satanism rebranded in a way that makes it palatable for the masses. It’s do what thou wilt. It’s the seeking of your true will.

Yumi Nu is a 250-pound glamour girl. She has aligned herself with her corpulent true will. She’s no different from Lia Thomas, the young man who decided his true will was to be a swimmer on the University of Pennsylvania’s women’s team. Nu is no different from Pete Buttigieg, the U.S. secretary of transportation who hopped in a hospital bed to pretend he delivered a baby.

Yumi Nu feels like she’s the Asian Christie Brinkley, Heidi Klum, or Tyra Banks. The reality is Nu is more Lizzo or Jason Whitlock, a pretty face seated atop a grossly unhealthy body. The people lying to and about Yumi Nu want her and others to die an early death smothered in gravy, fried chicken, and Kool-Aid.

Death is the point of the D.I.E. religion. Its adherents want to kill America and Western civilization by killing Judeo-Christian culture. What made America great was when we collectively sought to align ourselves with God’s will for us. That’s what compelled us to end slavery and Jim Crow. Men and women who wanted to be on the right side of God fought for freedom and equality of opportunity. Men and women who want to be on the right side of a history leftists plan to write will end up standing alongside Aleister Crowley and blubbery beauties.
