So, ive got to say, the event was really weird...
When my buddy and I were walking into the venue, the crowd was not at all what i expected it to be. the majority of people attending were familys with young girl daughters, rich people dressed like they are going to the club, and weird looking obese people. They all had his book, i guess hoping to have it signed? i dont know, the whole thing was strange. Real weird vibes. it was like going a collegiate orchestra but the girls were there dressed in really weird going out clothes showing their tits and looking for mates. I dont really know how to describe it other than my buddy and i were just confused...
anyway, so i decide to find some other guys to ask why they were there and why they liked jordan peterson, none of them really knew who he was, they were just there to take pictures and tell people they were there, or at least that was my impression. so, dave rubin comes out and makes a bunch of gay jokes and the crowd loves it (disgusting) but whatever, he is tweeting on stage and everyone loved it, im talking like, the crowd is screaming for jordan peterson and they give a standing ovation before he even comes out. They were dedicated groupies who, like most people i could see, were just reading the book in their seats.. fucking weirdos.
Peterson comes out and gives his talk, which is at this point just kind of a rehearsed show (which is fine, its what i expected) but it was strange to hear the WHOLE crowd, all together, at the same time, have these epiphany moments and all give a slight, 'hmm' fake intellectual nod to the speaker... so fuking weird. peterson goes on to talk about how terrible nazis are, even though he never talks about why nazis come about despite the majority of his lecture being on teh dangers of out of control leftism. he even talks about how great it is that africa and china are doing "so well" and the audience loved it (this is ct, so the whole audience is white)
so to the end, the message i took was to ignore the threats around you and focus on yourself. just, pathetic.
The worst part was that they have a vetted process for questions now, that you have to tweet them to someone or something and then the gay jew rubin reads them to peterson, and all the questions that he answers were so fucking gay, like "how do you stay motivated?" or "what did little b peterson really want to be?" They all cared about the person rather than the ideas.. it was disheartening to watch.
Sometimes, i dont want to think that people are this retarded but it was hard
