I'm all for bottling the salty, salty tears of precious snowflakes, but this lad strikes me as a step up from your Tommy Robinsons and your Milos.

He's the type of head that would hold high office in a fourth reich.

I don't think he challenges the left as much as he challenges fuzzy thinking, in that interview at least. I thought the interviewer also did a good job.

He talks quite a bit about totalitarianism and how to avoid it.

He's not religious in the traditional sense of the word, but I think he is nonetheless a preacher. He speaks of good and evil, he says you should choose to be good, he's very knowledgable about various religions and references them in his theory that people use myths to define themselves and the world.

He is "Peterson urged people to stop threatening Newman, posting on Twitter on Friday: “If you’re threatening her, stop. Try to be civilized in your criticism. It was words. Words, people, words. Remember those?” Its a joke people feel the need to threaten her, idiots. I also think his Mao / Leftist comparison is reductionist, Mao, like Stalin, wasn't about Right or Left, he was about Mao, like most totalitarians he mixed right and left tenets as he wished.

His point on Gender pay Gap and Sweden is quite good, more women WANT to be teachers and nurses, even when under no societal, cultural or economic pressure to do so, that this is the case is neither good nor bad, it simply is. People also forget that a lot of high pressure roles take a toll on the heart, it's no surprise women greatly outlive men.

I heard him on Joe Rogan's podcast . Thought he verged a bit on the squirrelly when describing neo marxism but I found his arguments thought provoking and reasonable credible overall. Made enemies of elements of the identity politics lobby when he refused to use gender-neutral pronouns.

He was a guest on another of Joe Rogan's podcasts along with Brett Weinstein of Evergreen College fame (The insanity at Evergreen may well have been the high(low) watermark of snowflakedom....). Unsurprisingly there have been quite a few attempts to smear both of them as alt right.

The best part of the whole thing is that he killed her with kindness, he could have destroyed her but kept his cool and and chipped away. Her smugness when he said he felt uncomfortable didn’t last long.
