Jordan Peterson is befuddled by a
journalist comedian throwing out a basic appeal to civil rights.
Making people make a cake for a gay wedding.
Making them do it? I don’t think that’s a very good idea.
Here’s the argument. Should they be able to deny making a cake for a black couple if they don’t like black people?
Allowed to? Probably. That doesn’t mean it’s right.
Okay, so we had the Civil Rights movement, where they said, black people, we had to serve them in your restaurants and stuff like that, and it did work, and it did make our society better.
But you still argue that wasn’t right?
No, that was right.
Why is that different to now, if you didn’t want to make a cake for black people?
Maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s not different. Maybe I was wrong about that.
So much for the right of free association in the eyes of the grand champion of individualism. Remember, this leading philosopher of the 21st century, this irreplaceable man who believes only he can save the world with very important thoughts never thought before, previously managed to lose a debate to SAM freaking HARRIS over what the meaning of “true” is.
What a joke.
