About :

I was invited to Queen's University March 5 to give the inaugural lecture/discussion of the Liberty Lecture series, funded by Faculty of Law alumnus, Gregory Piasetzki (LLB 1980).

Dr. Bruce Pardy (https://law.queensu.ca/faculty-research/faculty-directory/pardy) and I discussed the increasingly frequent requirements for compelled speech that characterize the Canadian sociopolitical landscape.

The entire event was, in a word, surreal. Initial controversy over its acceptability rose to the point where the Dean of the Law School William Flanagan and Principal of Queen’s Daniel Woolf wrote missives in defence of free speech (the former: http://bit.ly/2EQJDm3; the latter: http://bit.ly/2tJB8VB). The Queen's University "Human Rights Office" posted a link to the Levana Gender Advocacy Centre and Education on Queer Issues Project "active support" efforts during this event at their “Trans-Positive and People of Colour Positive Chill-In” in Dunning Hall, room 11, where there was coloring pages, music, food, and discussion.

The 900 or so people who attended (who comported themselves admirably and thoughtfully throughout) were subject to a continual 90-minute barrage of noise generated by the protestors, who leaped up on the stained glass windows lining the hall and banged continually on them, breaking one. Inside, we could see shadowy figures dimly outlined through the colored glass. The outside doors were barricaded. One protestor was caught on film saying "Lock them in and burn it down." The din was substantial and ominous, although it is much attenuated in this video, due to the nature of the microphones used, which were designed to pick up speech close at hand.

The protestor who broke the window was arrested, but not before she bit a policeman, attempted to kick the back window out of a police cruiser, and was found to be in possession of a garrotte, a particularly brutal weapon with no defensive utility whatsoever (http://bit.ly/2HoTDAu). The man who cursed so profoundly and eloquently near the beginning of the lecture accosted me and my crew after the talk, and yelled and cursed and threatened at close quarters during our 200-yard walk from the venue to the parkade.

No one who was at this event will forget it.

Not good. Not good at all.

JBP started low but he got better and better in public speech and public debate. He's at a level that is really outstanding now.

The Queen's University hierarchy were not cowards for allowing the window banging to go on. They were not cowards, because they truly aided and agreed with their shameful conduct. The protestors were carrying out what the school officials were to COWARDLY to do themselves. Oh-Oh. I guess they were cowards after all.

"there is no 'Trans Community'" brilliant. The whole idea that "communities" of oppressed groups or societal members exist is essential for liberal left ideology. It and PC speech and policy pivots on the very belief in the existence of cohesive communities you can consult as to how they ought to [all] be treated and what concessions they need in order to have equal access or rights or whatever.

When the religious right in the US wants to force people to pray in school and plead allegiance to the flag it is compelled speech as well. I'm not American myself, but I always was a bit disgusted by it. You shouldn't be forced to say anything.

They are outside protesting "hate speech" and saying the University should not invite it or condone it. Yet, they are outside being hateful against what they "think" is going on inside with Peterson. I heard absolutely nothing about hate in Jordan Peterson's lecture or question and answer session. Protester's = ignorance, bias, misinformation, childish and basically any reason to protest. It's all in their minds and they are just following a crowd to draw attention to themselves and feel self-righteous. Jordan Peterson is intelligent, compromising, speaks the truth and uses common sense. Something the Protestors are lacking.

Should have invited a few of the protesters in. Put them on stage with Jordan to discuss their point of view and the reason why they think it's better to protest and disrupt a discussion on ideas and views. Would it not be in their intrest to form a good agument for thier veiws and discuss with Jordan on this topic.

Based on the protester chants and slogans it would appear they have never actually listened to one of Peterson's discussions or lectures.

These idiots banging on the walls offer nothing to society in exchange for the investment be placed in them by that society. They should be expelled from the University, as I see nothing of value in educating future tyrants.

Jordon's speech is inspirational. "Struggle up the bloody hill on your crutches to the Kingdom of God". And I am not a Christian. I am with Richard Dawkins, 6/7 atheist. Peterson tells it like it is, life is a struggle and if you don't struggle against the difficulties in your life you lose your dignity and self respect. Jordon should be taught to all students.

the left was for free speech when the right was in power, now they have power (at least on the media) and so they no longer support free speech.

Thank You! Thank You! Jordon B. Peterson and Bruce Pardy and Audience for standing your ground on the truth! Unfortunately the incoherent 4 year old children outside are not even students of Queen's. If they were, they would not be investing thousands of dollars into themselves by blocking the doorway to Halls and breaking windows. They are confused and unhappy and will go to the pub later that night getting intoxicated and high, regrouping for another job NOT Well Done. Beside the hangover the next day, they will get up around 3pm and pout once again about why life is not fair. When they are so low with self esteem, then perhaps they will come to their senses and finally pick up Jordon's Book 12 Rules To Life and realize they were wrong all along.

Jordan Peterson is at such a high level of notoriety and organized hate by radical groups, that if I were him, I would only do those events with armed guards in the background. Those weirdos are only a step of away from violence to silence speech that they don't agree with.
