Why the Progressive Left desperately needs to stop trolling Jordon Peterson’s Twitter and have a hard look at itself

The lesson the NDP desperately needs to take from the Ontario election.

What we don’t need to do as a Party, or party supporters, is to start attacking Ontario Conservative or Liberal voters as “deplorable’s” “alt-right” “fascist” or any of the rest of the hyperbolic hate fest. The “us and them” dichotomy of virtue signaling, identity politics helped Ford win Queens Park. Wynne’s Liberals approached social issues with the arrogance that has disastrously been in fashion on the left.

“We can, if we have the wisdom, light a fire in this place and time, so bright and clear that it will be seen by all the children of man. Many of whom still huddle in darkness and misery in every corner of the earth. Let our actions be a blazing beacon of hope in a world of Donald Trump and YouTube beheading videos. Let us be the example to our children of what is possible for humanity when people of reason and good will work together in good faith.”

A letter to my American cousins

You seem to be afraid that Donald Trump will make America more violent and less tolerant. Yet you presently live in a country where in large parts any basement-dwelling, mad-at -the-world teenager can open-carry a loaded assault rifle into a family restaurant. The only way the management of the restaurant could refuse this individual service is if he were gay and it conflicted with their religious beliefs.
