These days, anybody who says anything significant that contradicts accepted social memes is attacked and you can find all manner of hit pieces on Jordan Peterson, and they're all pretty stupid, just what you'd expect. You can't argue with people like me (or Ashvin) with this kind of cut-and-paste. The best you can do is try to post so much silly crap it pushes our comments down the page out of sight.

Neither you, nor the authors of this trash really have taken the time to really listen to JP, who has a decent rationale for everything he says, and is probably one of the smartest, most sincere searchers for truth in this generation. I don't agree with him on everything, but the idea that he is somehow serving the elites or the status quo is absurd.

You have an agenda and you know how to cut and paste. What else have you got? If you want to argue with smart people, bring some original thoughts.

Translation: I believe what i believe, and I'm not nothing to read anything that disagrees with what I believe, because fu ck you.

Anything that is a critique of JP is necessarily a hit piece, and dismissed out of hand. Because all such articles are stupid.

Joe McCarthy also had "a decent rationale" for everything he said.

And what is "absurd" is that he is NOT "somehow serving the elites or the status quo."

No, you've just decided to channel Smokey, and I won't play that sh it. Get educated or leave me the fu ck alone.

I study what I write about. I'm not just an aggregator. Just because you find some cheezie hit piece on JP, it doesn't mean you have some valid point to make.

Your attack dog comments on Ashvin are largely ad hom, and you know that. I don't always agree with Ashvin either. But you and RE are using him for sport, in my opinion.

And your knowledge base on JP  (neither one of you) is adequate to make an original cogent comment.

Have fun turning the Diner into a lying mouthpiece like the Greaneville Post. I'm interested primarily in collapse, not this silly political red-wash bullshit.

Having created over 100 original blog posts for this blog, I feel the accusation of "cut-n-paste" is unwarranted. Like other posters, I place other articles here every day. So what? Where is the harm in that.

"Just an aggregator?" Yes, I aggregate every day to put the Doomstead Diner daily  together. And I paste some of the articles here. I didn't know this activity upset you so. Oh, my.

You note that my "attack dog comments" on Fucko are largely ad hom. But you remain mute as the tomb about the ones that are not. Also silent as the Sphinx about the fact that ASHVIN STARTED IT. He went ad hom first (old white man, etc.). So the best he gets is the back of my hand. So spare me the crocodile tears for "poor Ashvin." If he is sport, it's because he's made a game of it.

You cannot imagine that any of this is pleasant. As I told someone else today, these pissing matches leave the forum reeking of stale urine, like an alleyway where drunks pi ss. They annoy the regulars and scare the noobs and lurkers. But I am not going to permit free market fundamentalism go unchallenged while I am sucking a breath. And if you think that is "turning the Diner into a lying mouthpiece like the Greaneville Post," you are a lot less thoughtful than I gave you credit for being. Or choose to turn a blind eye.

Well elucidated, Surly.

FWIW, I wish to point out the irony of Eddie complaining about "attack dog and largely ad hom comments" when Eddie has never hesitated to unload "Trailer Park Jesus" and "Loser" ad hominem attacks on me , with obvious relish, whenevah he feels like it.

Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Ps. 97:11
