  3. Why am I being admonished by Twitter that “the following media includes potentially sensitive content,” the media following being four names (Scott Adams, Steve Sailer, Jordan Peterson, and David A. French) and four percentages (50%, 50%, 52%, 48%)?

    That’s it. That’s the entirety of the “potentially sensitive content.”

    wwebd said – Peterson is a smart guy, crazy of course, but a Babe Ruth level communicator. Pro-choice, of course, so not a good guy, but still he is a phenomenon, in his little way,

    Scott Adams is in my personal pantheon of celebrities who I do not admire but who I know are really good at what they do because when I was young and healthy I had no idea that he and the dinosaur cartoonist – Gary Larson – were not the same guy – they are both pro-choice of course so that is just too bad, I feel sorry for them, LIFE IS GOOD AND YOU HAVE TO BE PRO-LIFE IF YOU ARE NOT YOU ARE A LOSER. Still, they are both funny guys, Adams much more so than Larson, who is just a little too weird a little too often, and that kind of makes you wonder why you are laughing —– THAT IS NOT HOW A COMEDIAN SHOULD AFFECT HIS OR HER AUDIENCE — a real comedian never leaves his audience wondering why they were laughing, to the contrary, a real comedian makes his audience wonder why they have not been laughing more than they had been, back in the day …..

    Sailer is really funny, maybe the only normal person not named Derbyshire or Reed on this very very fucked-up website, home to some deep craven crazy people.

    So props to Sailer for that.

    David French – don’t know anything about him. Doubt he is really French, I think that is just his last name, not his nationality.

    I think Peterson is pretty typically 'boomerish' in that he's a champion of the whole 'pick yourself up by the bootstraps' mentality. Though I'm not sure I can imagine him mowing his lawn (I assume he has a lawn) which is pretty boomerish, Steve on the other hand I can see mowing a lawn to sculpt it into a faux golf course aesthetic.
    Other boomer traits: talking about the past, old cars and sports. Steve always talks about 20th century whereas for Peterson its more historical and not personal history; and the other week Steve mentioned the car he bought without a radio so it didn't get stolen.

    Based on some previous discussions on these blogpages, Jordan Peterson is arguably not even a Baby Boomer at all, going strictly by year of birth.

    Jordan B. Peterson was born in June 1962 (the transition period between Baby Boomers and Generation X) in Alberta, where he spent the first 22 years of his life.

    Replies: @Laurence Whelk

  11. Jordan Peterson is a leftist drug addict and UN special program associate who got caught up in an establishment attempt to co-opt “the alt-right,” the only reason he was ever worth knowing about was him standing up to Canadian totalitarianism, and his idea of intellectual integrity is to apologize and leave the stage. How is this a competition?

  12. Is this one of those Dissident Right things where Sailer and his readers are seen as too “boomercon civnat” and not sufficiently prepped up for Civil War II?

  13. Sorry Steve but even if you make it past Jordan “clean your room” (on benzos) Peterson, NFW you can take French in the finals.

    He is the Duke of the boomercons. You are more of a Gonzaga. Or maybe Davidson of late. Good run tho.

    Can’t really see how you made it to the semi’s actually. Soo many Boomers better at being boomers out there.

  14. David French? Come on, this has to be the bogus spawn of someone with too much time on his/her/its hands.

    Really? David French? Who wants to finance David’s emigration to South Africa? Or Zimbabwe? I’ll bet a Go Fund Me page would raise $1M in just a couple of days — as long as he can’t come back.

    Boomer is a state of mind. I was born the same year as Jordan Peterson but he seems like my grandpa or Jimmy Stewart. Plus 1962 in Canada is not 1962 in California. Hell, 1962 in Missouri is not the same year as 1962 in California.

    I think Peterson is pretty typically 'boomerish' in that he's a champion of the whole 'pick yourself up by the bootstraps' mentality. Though I'm not sure I can imagine him mowing his lawn (I assume he has a lawn) which is pretty boomerish, Steve on the other hand I can see mowing a lawn to sculpt it into a faux golf course aesthetic.
    Other boomer traits: talking about the past, old cars and sports. Steve always talks about 20th century whereas for Peterson its more historical and not personal history; and the other week Steve mentioned the car he bought without a radio so it didn't get stolen.
    I think Steve should have this one.

    Both Peterson and Sailer are atypical of Boomers
     
    Based on some previous discussions on these blogpages, Jordan Peterson is arguably not even a Baby Boomer at all, going strictly by year of birth.

    Jordan B. Peterson was born in June 1962 (the transition period between Baby Boomers and Generation X) in Alberta, where he spent the first 22 years of his life.

    Boomer is a state of mind. I was born the same year as Jordan Peterson but he seems like my grandpa or Jimmy Stewart. Plus 1962 in Canada is not 1962 in California. Hell, 1962 in Missouri is not the same year as 1962 in California.

    1962 in Canada is not 1962 in California
     
    And his native Alberta is also the most conservative part of Canada.

    As an aside, Kevin Michael Grace wrote an essay for VDare last week, also up at the Unz Review ("Canada Fragments—Is Alberta Secession Next?"), in which he predicts Canada will break up in the 2020s, led by an Alberta separatist movement. For those interested, I also recommend the insightful comments to that article by a commenter named jeppo.

    Historical note:

    This comment is the second time the word "Gibraltarian" has appeared on the iSteve blog. The first was in 2017, in this delightful line:


    If the United Kingdom left the European Union, Spain might seize the opportunity to isolate Gibraltar, leaving the territory to shrivel up, like a flap of dead skin. The Gibraltarian government had already called on the House of Commons for help. There was concern that Spain would jam up the border again and that it might happen right away.
     
    The article was about Neanderthals.

    The author felt it appropriate to veer into this tangent about the dangers of Spanish aggression against Gibraltar which are going to be triggered by Brexit, because there are some Neanderthal skeletons in Gibraltar.
