Why Can't People Hear What Jordan Peterson Is Saying?
You know how sometimes you’re in an argument or debate and you stumble a little and you think back later and say, “man I should’ve said this”. Jordan Peterson doesn’t. He had a perfect response to every dumb question she came at him with. And even still he’s being made to look like a bully by some.

Why is Cathy Newman unable to receive what he is saying? Is he wrong? Maybe, but she keeps going back to a specific set of ideological presuppositions. Almost to a fault. Almost as if she wasn't listening. Her cognitive dissonance rang through loud and clear. Listen to Scott Adams discuss:

Even though he performed brilliantly, he was still critical of his performance when he realized she wasn't listening to his responses and attempting to argue with someone who was a caricature of himself.
