Jordan Peterson, renowned psychology professor and best-selling author, knows that there are some dangerous people teaching our children in schools.

What did he say?

In a video for Prager U, Peterson describes exactly what's happening with teachers, administrators, and students in today's society and explains that some teachers and professors are bent on indoctrination.

"You may not realize it, but you are currently funding some dangerous people," Peterson says. "They are indoctrinating young minds throughout the West with their resentment-ridden ideology. They have made it their life's mission to undermine Western civilization itself, which they regard as corrupt, oppressive, and patriarchal."

Peterson goes on to say that if you're a taxpayer, or are paying for your child's liberal arts degree, you're underwriting a "gang of nihilists."

"You're supporting ideologues who claim that all truth is subjective," he adds. "That all sex differences are socially constructed, and that Western imperialism is the sole source of all third-world problems. They are the post-modernists, pushing progressive activism at a college near you."

"They are the groups that violently shut down college campus speakers," Peterson continues. "The language police, who enshrine intellectual into law use of fabricated gender pronouns, and the deans whose livelihoods depend on madly rooting out discrimination where little or none exists."

"Now," Peterson continues, "we rack up education-related debt, not so that our children learn how to think critically, write clearly, or speak properly, but so they can model their mentor's destructive agenda."

Peterson later goes on to note how much education has changed over the years because of the perception of the patriarchy: "It's now possible to complete an English degree and never encounter Shakespeare, one of those dead white males whose works underlie our society of oppression."

What's his suggestion on curbing it?

Peterson says that to curb this type of identity politics, it must first be understood and noted how it correlates to power struggles and Marxism.

"To understand and oppose the post-modernists, the ideas by which they orient themselves must be clearly identified," Peterson explains, pointing to "their new unholy trinity of diversity, equity, and inclusion."

Peterson concludes, "Post-modernism will do to America what it and the entire western world what it's already done to its universities."
