Jordan Peterson has received close scrutiny because he has refused to address the centuries long persistence of antisemitism in a multitude of empires, religious settings, cultures, and nation-statess. Despite claiming he has been obsessed with the Holocaust from a young age, Peterson attributes this to 'human nature' and or the 'disproportionate success' of the Jewish people - a dogwhistle that combines backhanded compliment with victim blaming in a diabolically concise and elegant choice of words.

Bromance alert: Kanye West and … Jordan Peterson?

Kanye has also signalled his admiration for Jordan Peterson, the controversial University of Toronto professor who is the hero of those who have dubbed themselves lobsters — Peterson fans who believe, as he does, that political correctness has spiralled out of control.....The problems arise due to the fact that white supremacists, including the Ku Klux Klan, have embraced Trump. At the same time, they’ve found a philosophy in Peterson’s work that’s compatible with Trump’s anti-fact bias.
It’s not that Peterson is against facts, it’s that he appeals to people who do not require them to form an idea — including, apparently, Kanye West, who recently suggested that slavery was a choice.
Peterson argues that we’re all captives in a post-modern world, one in which nothing has more meaning that anything else. The issue is that his adherents are not informed enough to compare his philosophies with competing ideas.
