“mostly because the faculties of education are full of people who are radical”
Last month, we featured a video Professor Jordan Peterson did for Prager University about how “dangerous people” are teaching your children. In some of his recent interviews, he has expanded that idea and explained more about the thinking behind it.
This week, he did so on FOX and Friends.

Jordan Peterson: Liberal colleges aren’t about education, they’re about ‘political activism’
University of Toronto Psychology professor and author Jordan Peterson spoke with Fox News Tuesday to discuss his recent video warning parents that students are being “indoctrinated” at liberal colleges, with ideas that are “academically suspect and ideologically possessed.”
“People are being taught by ideologues, not by educators. And ideologues have a very simple way of looking at the world, they reduce it to a few principles like inequality and unfairness and power, those would be the fundamental principles at the moment that are operating on the radical left, and they’re on an ideological campaign. And that’s increasingly the case in elementary, junior high and high schools as well, mostly because the faculties of education are full of people who are radical,” Peterson said.
Watch the segment below:
You’ll notice Peterson zeroed right in on disciplines like women’s studies and ethnic studies.
Nick Givas of the Daily Caller has more on that:
Clinical psychologist and University of Toronto Professor Jordan Peterson called out colleges for teaching “pseudo-disciplines” on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday and said they made a “dreadful mistake” by legitimizing imitation majors.
“I think part of it’s still a hangover from the 1960s,” Peterson said. “I would say and perhaps even a bit of a hangover from the Cold War.”
“I also think the universities made a dreadful mistake expanding their humanities purview to include disciplines like women’s studies and these ethnic studies disciplines, which aren’t disciplines,” he continued.
“They’re pseudo-disciplines at best. And they have very, very low academic standards and they’re corrupting the rest of the enterprise. And that’s not a good thing.”
Is there any wonder why the far left has placed a target on Peterson’s back? He is pulling back the curtain and exposing a side of higher education many Americans don’t even realize they’re financing through their taxes.
