Jordan Bernt Peterson (born June 12, 1962) is a Canadian professor of psychology at the University of Toronto. His main areas of study are the psychology of religious and ideological belief, and the assessment and improvement of personality and performance. He authored Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief in 1999. Recently he has been campaigning against the pernicious influence of postmodernism in academic life.
Christopher Eric Hitchens (13 April 1949 – 15 December 2011) was an Anglo-American author, columnist, essayist, orator, religious and literary critic, social critic, and journalist. He contributed to New Statesman, The Nation, The Atlantic, London Review of Books, The Times Literary Supplement, Slate, and Vanity Fair. Hitchens was the author, co-author, editor or co-editor of over 30 books, including five collections of essays, on a range of subjects, including politics, literature, and religion. A staple of talk shows and lecture circuits, his confrontational style of debate made him both a lauded and controversial figure and public intellectual.
Talking on his LBC show Maajid lambasted Assange for his singular obsession with transparency, which has lead to deaths and helped Donald Trump’s bid to be president.
“Not all leaks are equal, Mr Assange. In certain countries people are killed for things for far less than that because of your leaks.”
“You leaked information about counter extremist Muslims who are working in Afghanistan who are working with coalition forces against the Taliban and it directly led to their deaths because their names were released as collaborators and the Taliban hunted them down.”
“Back then nobody cared because if some poor brown Muslim guy in Afghanistan who was attempting to fight the Taliban and nobody cared that the consequences of your privileged first world Australian, male life didn’t have to think about causing the deaths of those vulnerable people in Afghanistan who are attempting to fight the Taliban.”
I knew it! When I posted the hilariously stupid video of Sarah Palin endorsing Donald Trump in Iowa, I asked, “Where’s Tina Fey when we need her?”
She’s here! Here’s a bit from this week’s Saturday Night Live in which Tina Fey plays Sarah Palin endorsing Donald Trump (Darrell Hammond). Her imitation of Palin is one of the best bits of mockery in our time.
They didn’t get Trump’s hair quite right, though. . .
