Tolerance is no longer enough. If you don’t use progressive approved language, you can be punished.

The Daily Caller reports:

Google And YouTube Ban Prof Who Refused To Use Gender-Neutral Pronouns

A professor in Canada who refuses to use gender-neutral pronouns and criticizes social justice issues was banned from using his Google and YouTube accounts Tuesday, regaining access hours later with no detailed explanation provided.

Professor Jordan B. Peterson of the University of Toronto disputed Google and YouTube’s decision to lock him out of his accounts, according to correspondence obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Please tell me what principle I have violated,” said Peterson in his email to Google upon discovering that he was locked out of his account. “I have not violated any terms that I am aware of and have not misused my account.”

The psychology professor has over 350,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, which he uses as a platform to post his lectures, interviews, and Q&As.

“We understand you’ve recently been unable to access your Google account, and we appreciate you contacting us,” said Google in a response. “After review, your account is not eligible to be reinstated due to a violation of our Terms of Service.”

You know it’s because he’s kicking against the language and gender policing pricks. Trust Google/Youtube to come up with some BS excuse for their actions.

Why is this only a story in Quick takes?

I’m surprised to hear it. I stumbled across his videos about four months ago and find them very interesting, even the ones
that do not contain any politics. I strongly recommend them. There are times when he uses profanity, but John Oliver uses much more. Nor is he a foiaming at the mouth sort of person.

He comes across basically like Joseph Campbell to me.

Perhaps we should start a campaign to report guys like John Oliver for hate speech to Google. Let’s see if they take him off.

Anyone here used to work for AT&T or one of the baby bells?

let me tell you a bit of a story of what it is like. Every quarter, they make you take an AA class. The AA does not stand for Alcoholics Anonymous. It stands for afirmative action. Every employee. That was in the 80s and 90s.

AT&T does not like to be sued. They will do anything to avoid being sued. This included kowtowing to SJWs. Not just kowtowing, but actually running to the SJWs and asking what they can do for them.

Google has put Dr. Peterson’s stuff back up, but what if the SJWs went and complained to AT&T? You know that AT&T would threaten to throttle Google for promoting hate speech.

Or consider the SJWs running to AT&T and demanding Drudge or Breitbart be totally be removed from the internet.

There is something preventing that. It’s called net neutrality.

Mark Steyn did a great interview with Peterson where they talk about speech codes and legally mandated speech.
