Critical Theory versus critical thinking

There are two vital posts in order to fully “get” this Peterson/Newman contretemps:

http://parzivalshorse.blogspot.co.uk/2018/01/that-interview.html

And this is the actual interview here.

And one comment at Breitbart:

# It was critical theory vs. critical thinking [Celeste Elizabeth, pictured].

Into this, let’s now throw Yuri Bezmenov’s quote from the 80s:

You are stuck with them. You cannot get rid of them. They are contaminated. They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their minds. Even if you expose them to authentic information, if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still cannot change the basic perception and the logical behaviour.

The fuller version is here.

In short, they are neither more nor less than robots, Critical Theory robots. And my earlier response to the Peterson/Newman “debate”:

Most men of that calibre are superior to all women of that type. There is no comparison – she is an idiot, a victimhood, self-entitled, SJW non-comp.

I go on to speak of “proper” women who have not been brainwashed and whom I love and quote.

But it is the “debate” in Amfortas’s comments thread which vigorously underscores Peterson’s and Delingpole’s key points, in which the “New” female starts with:

I tried to find common ground, here. But there isn’t any grace or God’s love here, anymore. I should’ve figured that out …

Always resort to the ad hominem and victimized posturing if you don’t have the arguments. And long ago in the mists of time, here is another typical SJW’s attack on me:

Have you ever considered that you might be the Anti Christ? Mad, full of hate, mysogynistic, just plain weird. Man, you tick all the boxes. You are one insane son of a bitch. Bitter. And left as scrap. All those women that you can’t stand tower over you. [Presumably Harriet Harman, Cressida Dick and Julia Middleton, lovely lasses] You want to know why? Because you are a cretin. You are a mad man, of limited intellect, with an axe to grind. You come over as slightly unhinged. That’s why you don’t get a huge outraged response to the tripe that you put out there. Nobody takes you seriously. Mostly we have a laugh.

That says most of what we need to say about the Cathy Newmans of the world [and about the leftist pussified males], in that case back then, a charming lass named Suzie.

If the online world needs any definitive “debate” which underlines Peterson’s point, this one with Newman will go down in history as it. Archive it and refer back to it whenever you need to make this particular point.

Which particular point? Celeste Elizabeth’s of course [slightly paraphrased]:

What we have here is no more nor less than “Critical Theory versus critical thinking”.

Chanting the mantra versus actually thinking and debating, without any thoughts that your overwhelming emotional attacks are not going to carry the day. After all, if it continues to work, continue to do it, the shadow government will reward you for it.

To that tactic, I blow a giant raspberry in that direction.

Why is any of this important?

Why is a minor contretemps going to define this “debate” from now on? Because the brainwashed who are doing the PTB’s will are highly dangerous people. They vote in tyrants who would take away our freedom of thought, word and action, the bedrock of western civilization as perceived by the common people but not at all by the PTB themselves.

Make absolutely no mistake about this – this is what it is all about – silencing dissent. Readers of this site know it, readers of most sites on this side of politics know it and are dismayed to see what’s going on out there – the bastards above tightening the screws with the full blessing of the pink pussy marchers who have lost the power of reason.

And just as Jordan Peterson was a victim of Newman’s barbs, so are we constantly, every day – men and women who still revere freedom. Every day we have to put up with these offensive clowns like the Newmans and Suzies, the Mandelsons, Blairs and Junckers.

Enough.

….

Late note – just saw this:

Ah yes, our new intelligentsia.

Also, I think there is one factor no one is factoring in – NLP.

      Relying on you here to report on developments. I don’t go near the Grauniad. Makes me angry.

    Critical theorists don’t do debate.

    The Alarmunists will never openly debate global warming.

    The refrain goes “we need an honest debate!”

    No, never on and about; the NHS, mass immigration, QE, diversity-equality agendas, ‘sustainability’, charidees, the so called ‘Russian threat’, how Germany is actually running the EU – none of that will get them out and up before the cameras and honestly debate. More, particularly if someone like Mark Steyn would be sailing into view.
    Think on how many right thinking realists feature on even ephemera like their newspaper reviews on – beeb/sky/itv or given columns in newspapers or left wing but free thinkers like Brendan O’Neill – the media, the whole of Westminster don’t do balanced, logical, reasoned.

    Conclusion, this is why they (Alinskyites, commies, wimin, lav mps, the left) scream loudly all the time, it’s what wimin do when they’ve lost the plot and the argument.

    “We’re so collective mama………………. mmm let the empathy flow and fuck you, fuck you, fuck you – I’m feeling so empathic and empowered, Misandrists unite!” (ref: Alf Garnett tweet/ pic above). Useful idiots are ten a penny.

    It ain’t even Venus and Mars, its another universe and never is mentioned the wolves allowed to do as the please and no sanction – carte blanche, politicians invited them in, now they do their bidding, and they have no room for debate, their rules were supposedly written down in the dark ages, though greatly amended by various zealots since.

    Yuri Bezmenov may not have appreciated it but I see it as the creation of artificial intelligence, he was talking about human robotics it is everywhere, examples the Catholic Church, Islam, Scientology, MK-Ultra and on and on. Try George Carlin to start your De-Tox it can be done
