A speaking event on the campus of Queens University on Monday featuring professor of psychology and clinical psychologist Dr. Jordan B Peterson provided yet another up-close look at the radical, anti-free speech tactics of social justice activists, who laid siege to the lecture hall, pounded on stained glass windows, screamed “Shame!” in the faces of those who attended the talk, and surrounded and harassed a young female student.
Peterson, who has become a target of the social justice left because of his libertarian views, including opposing laws mandating the use of self-identified, “non-binary” pronouns, is quickly becoming a household name in large part due to the fascistic practices of those who oppose him. On the same day that Antifa protesters shut down an event at King’s College in London as well as a Christina Hoff Sommers’ event at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, social justice protesters converged on Peterson’s talk at Queen’s University.
In a series of videos posted online and highlighted by Peterson on social media, the student activists can be seen attempting to “barricade” the participants of the event, pounding on stained glass windows, organizing themselves to scream “Shame!” at people leaving the event, and surrounding one polite, petite girl and screaming in her face racially charged comments. According to Peterson, after the event, activists were “accosting” participants on the way to the parking lot.
“It was absolutely surreal,” Peterson tweeted, linking to a video (below). “The mob neglected to bring torches and pitchforks, but the sentiment was there: ‘Lock them in and burn it down’.” A few days before the event, Peterson tweeted that professors at the university had fed into sentiment against him by describing him as “anti-trans/racist/colonialist/anti-Semitic & Islamophobic.”
Below are videos of the protests followed by a series of tweets by Peterson chronicling what took place, which includes more footage:
