‘When will Jordan Peterson’s Transphobic Simps Learn?’: Fans Brutally Attack Peterson’s Fans For Dead-Naming Elliot Page, Applaud Twitter For Strong Stance

Jordan Peterson, the 60-year-old Canadian conservative author, and psychologist has never refrained from making controversial statements, staunchly supporting conservatism without a care in the world about how dumb he might sound. His latest spectacle involves a disrespectful and downright distasteful tweet that he posted about the trans actor Elliot Page on June 22. The tweet was a pointless and cliche attempt to take a jibe at the concept of Pride month along with a deliberate attempt to deadname The Umbrella Academy actor. It read:

“Remember when pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician.”

Jordan Peterson “would rather die” than delete the tweet

Twitter suspended Jordan Peterson’s account for violating company policy, with the notice:

“You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, caste, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”

He was notified that his account will be back on if he deleted the tweet that was flagged as “hateful” conduct for deadnaming Elliot Page. And did the author accept Twitter’s terms and conditions? Well apparently, he “would rather die” than delete the disrespectful tweet.

The man didn’t stop even after his account got suspended. He went on to upload a 15-minute video, listing every single reason why he refuses to apologize for the tweet. In his own words:

“[T]he suspension will not be lifted until I delete the ‘hateful’ tweet in question, and I would rather die than do that.”

Of Pride month and the seven deadly sins

The clown-foolery didn’t end with Peterson’s obstinate statement though. The man went on to equate Pride month to the pride which comprises the seven deadly sins in Christianity. Maybe, on similar lines his deep and dense knowledge is the reason for his being as dense-headed as the poor old man is too, we might never find out.

The cherry on top is his blatant comparison of Page’s surgeons to that of the Nazi concentration camp physician Josef Mengele. Make that make sense…

Meanwhile, people across Twitter didn’t fail to give Peterson a much-needed reality check. Too bad he can’t see them though.

Dave Rubin follows Jordan Peterson’s footsteps; deadnames Elliot Page

In a related update, Dave Rubin, another conservative has followed Peterson’s footsteps and got his Twitter account suspended as well. And Twitter won’t be Twitter without conservatives crying out loud about “free speech” and how they’re being oppressed.

Jordan’s daughter Mikhaila Peterson tweeted about Rubin’s account suspension and an army of Peterson simps came to support and applaud dogma and orthodoxy, calling the Canadian author a treasure.

Some conservatives even sympathized with Peterson, who has apparently faced “emotional devastation” and “severe pain” (wish we could insert the sob-eye emoticon here).

Twitter comes out in beautiful support of Elliot Page

The sympathy train was called to a stop very soon and Twitter blasted with support of Dave Rubin’s account suspension. And they did not go gentle into the good night…

The fact that Elliot Page has maintained a dignified silence throughout the bizarre series of events did not go unnoticed by people either.

Other people gave their generous support to Page while expressing their lament about how his name is being ceaselessly dragged in orthodox discourse.

At a time when hate and stupidity are becoming synonymous traits, with the distinction slowly but surely blurring, one is reminded of how the gay playwright Oscar Wilde, himself punished on account of sodomy, once wrote: “There is no sin except stupidity”.
