    It just looks like sealioning to me, bubs.
    Populists (and "national socialists") look at the supposedly secret deals that run the world "behind the scenes". Child's play. Except that childishness is sinister in adults.

    You say that, but then you say this:

    There has been an effort to silence Jordan Peterson and compartmentalize him as being alt right for quite a while now. Do your research and you'll see. A group of students pushed him and the ones who wanted to listen to him speak out of a campus auditorium because they deem him transphobic, etc.
    This is an example of free speech and freedom of association. As someone else has mentioned, free speech does not mean you are entitled to a platform (freedom of association means people can say they don't want their institution to be associated with a person).

    Proof is boring. Proof is tiresome. Proof is irrelevance. People would rather be handed an easy lie than search for a difficult truth, especially when it suits their own purpose.
