Peterson promoting a "classical liberal" institution with Charles Koch on the board of directors:
More information on an institution Jordan Peterson was soliciting donations for several months ago:
An event from last month and a random facebook post I found that led me to track down this event.…
HumanProgress is a project of several Koch-affiliated organizations, including the Cato Institute, which was originally called the "Charles Koch Foundation"………
Here he is a few days ago just directly using the Cato Institute (again, founded in 1974 as the Charles Koch Foundation) as a source to prove capitalism is good:
Posting defense of another Koch dope from an outlet that recieves Koch funding:
Nate Mills, NRI's campus outreach and programs officer was a Koch research fellow at the Center for Vision and Values...…
National Review-produced podcast "The Bookmonger," with guest Jordan Peterson…
They really like talking about him, actually:…
More HumanProgress - sourcing them to dump on Venezuela:
Man, he really likes this HumanProgress site. I can't imagine why! (this one he is trying to undermine climate change by making sure people see that "extinctions are going down.")
Combine that with the Koch-connected orgs that kickstarted his career:
Fraser Institute (…) is funded by the Kochs directly, and funds the Aurea Foundation... it's really just a big cash circle jerk, and somehow Peterson keeps promoting tons of random shit from it, and apparently does events connected to this network.
Press Release for Turning Point USA's "Young Women's Leadership Summit" back in June, which Peterson and Ben Shapiro participated in.…
Which, you know, Turning Point USA is definitely not paid for by anyone...…
You know it's a Real Young Women's Leadership Summit™️ when Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro speak at it, though.
I'll be making a video with the information I've posted here, but a couple things before I stop with this thread:

-I've sifted through very little of the information, frankly it's a gold rush waiting to happen

-journalists, you are welcome to this thread, it's all public info
I didn't touch on how connected Peterson is to the TERFs. Which is, BTW, extremely.
Here's Peterson promoting Quillette, a platform TERFs hover around.

Here's a podcast they host with Dr. Deborah Soh, a pretty consistent anti-trans, biological determinist (they interview James Damore for episode 1 lol):…
Soh posting selfies with someone:
Soh being interviewed by Dave Rubin, another Koch dope:
We don't need to work too hard to explain Dave Rubin. Bonus: we've already talked about these orgs:
Deborah Soh was on a "trans rights" (heavy scarequotes) at Canada Christan College in July:
More context on that panel (it ain't pretty)…
You know who else was on that panel? Jared Brown.
Looks familiar? It should if you've ever seen the C-16 hearing Jordan Peterson testified at with Jared Brown:
A number of other people from that panel are both affiliated with Quillette and Jordan Peterson.

Does it matter if Quillette is "fully patreon funded" if you have Koch people hovering around it and using it?
As far as the TERFs go, this thread doesn't work to connect them specifically to the Kochs, but I think it demonstrates adjacent modes of operation and I think you should read it:
Additional point: all this right wing shit gets funding while left wing people do not.

This is why we have to ask you to support us on Patreon. We do not have institutions that are deeply invested in the current system working to promote us and our ideas.
These people wake up to privileged lives of traveling and preaching on other capital's dime.

We don't.
Additional, additional point:

It will take more than content to beat this. We need a broad range of organizations with movements behind them.

Content is important, but so are you, collaboration, and solidarity.
(in case you need more Ben Shapiro info)…
