University of Calgary Prof Claims He Will Fail Any Student Who Cites Jordan Peterson

University of Calgary Prof Claims He Will Fail Any Student Who Cites Jordan Peterson

“Not a good look for academia.”

Few people trigger the left in academia more than Jordan Peterson. It’s baffling.

Twitchy reports:

‘Anti-fascist’ assistant professor of sociology at U Calgary says rumors that he’ll fail any students who cite Jordan Peterson are ‘absolutely correct’

Ted McCoy is an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Calgary. But prospective students should be advised: if you cite Jordan Peterson, you will be punished.

U.N. Watch’s Hillel Neuer kindly grabbed a screenshot of McCoy’s threat, since McCoy is protecting his tweets for some reason:


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


This brave, self-described “anti-fascist” doesn’t even have the courage to keep his Twitter feed open. Real front-line freedom fighter.

So just cite Jesse Lee Peterson instead, then call him a racist if he says anything about it.

Stupid of him to admit it, because now students who are afraid of failing his class can deliberately cite Peterson and then sue when he fails them.

The real acme of newspeak here is for this twit to proclaim himself an “anti-fascist.” Next he’ll be telling us that war is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength, and men can be women.

Of course this is Canada, which doesn’t have a 1st Amendment. And apparently doesn’t want one.

    The truth is revealed if you remember that “anti-fascist” has become an abbreviation for “anti-American fascist.” That description adequately describes both this twit and the entire Antifa fascist organization.

If the entire class or section had balls, they’d all cite Jordan Peterson and dare this twit to fail the whole class. Even the most liberal administration would be forced to regrade the exams and papers properly. Or students should write the exam/paper and provide the information with the attribution “name of source omitted because of lunatic threat by lunatic professor.”

    Sadly, that isn’t how it works. Faculty have the academic freedom to grade students in whatever manner they choose. There is no appeal of a grade to the instructor’s supervisor. If the instructor has been granted tenure there isn’t anything the university’s administration can do to interject into this issue.

I believe Sinclair Lewis’ 1930s book about the potential for fascism in America, “It Can’t Happen Here,” is experiencing something of a rennaissance. Because of course it can happen here.

When it happens the fascists would simply deny being fascists. The worst of the worst of the fascists would claim to be the enemies of fascism.

Hello, antifa, you malignant fascist-not-fascist fascist crapweasels.

Ted McCoy is the fascist his mother warned him about.

The real question is: “What would be a valid, useful citation of Jordan Peterson?” Especially in a sociology context?

Is Jordan Peterson doing sociology experiments?
