Why are feminists and the left so afraid of Jordan Peterson?

Is there any reason to falsely report questions about him? What is the reason?  

I like him, he's a very intelligent and honest psychologist


Reposting question is easier than reporting. This could go on forever.

    Because common sense is their kryptonite

    The truth disturbs them.

    Because he exposes their hypocrisy and double standards. There is no example of legal discrimination against women in western cultures, but dozens of examples against men.

    Modern Feminists would lose their victim status and be exposed for being the real chauvinists if people were more enlightened, like Jordan Peterson is doing.

    Because he is a man who is excellent at spitting facts without being radical. He is our greatest allie! Most women/people have lost their minds and spoiled to the point to where they think anyone who disagrees with them is a misogynist, I mean just look at "xxii" answer.

    They’re not afraid of him.. he’s just an anal mommy’s boy who thinks women have cooties. More like he’s afraid of women.. like pees his little pants when a woman walks past him.

    "Afraid" or "annoyed by"?

    Certainly, there are some feminists who would like to see him generally stifled.

    They are ... what's the term I am looking for?

    ... oh yeah:  "Idiots."

    Feminists and the leftist gang know that they would get brutally destroyed if they ever try to debate with Jordan Peterson. This guy is among those who doesn't gets brainwashed by leftist propoganda and is very very intelligent. He is very factual, straightforward and calm that is why feminists and liberals fear him. 


    Jordan Peterson also says very harsh realities of the society which leftists don't like. He percieves the world from scientific point of view. Mr. Peterson is not a racist, sexist or homophobic because his own daughter is an intellectual.

    "Why are feminists and the left so afraid Jordan Peterson?"

    He's a classic Liberal that the Left had to turn into a monster because he represents a real threat to their critical theory talking points. He's not "right wing" or reactionary at all, but he -had to- be conflated with the alt-right in order to be turned into a monster that could be "cancelled" because he is too dangerous to the woke mob. Especially as he has gained traction with a huge amount of younger people who had never in their lives been exposed to any ideas that were not controlled by the Leftists in academia.

    The response by the Left to Jordan Peterson is really a sad commentary on the Left itself. They are attacking common sense, and someone who never needed to be an enemy if the Left were just a little more tolerant of diversity of opinion. Instead, their hardened and inflexible dogmatic positions are immediately threatened with common sense, so they go on the attack instead. Since they are ill prepared to allow anything at all other than their own narrowly defined talking points, then everything else, including classic Liberalism must be seen as dangerous "right wing" or alt-right philosophy that needs to be censored.

    Interesting that this question is being asked, because I ran into this article last night:

    "Why the Left Is So Afraid of Jordan Peterson"

    Jordan Peterson is typically paraphrased in such ways that words he never said are attributed to him. This is the main attack against people like him who's common sense, middle of the road advice is a threat to the radical ideals of his opponents that they cannot defend. The clearest example of this is the Jordan Peterson/Cathy Newman debate. After nearly ever answer given by Jordan, Cathy Newman rephrases and begins with; "So you're saying ....." ... and then proceeds to radicalize what he just said into something he never said.
