Controversial psychologist Jordan Peterson has hammered the “totalitarian state” he says has emerged in response to Covid-19, angrily wondering why he ever got vaccinated if the state still won’t leave him in peace.
“I thought, all right, I’ll get the damn vaccine. But, here’s the deal, guys: I’ll get the vaccine and you f***ing leave me alone!”Peterson shared his thoughts with podcast host Dave Rubin Wednesday.
“And did that work? “No. So, stupid me, you know?”He exclaimed. “It’s like, why did I get the vaccine then, if you’re not going to leave me alone?”
Peterson is fully vaccinated. But, as with all Canadians, Peterson still has to undergo Covid-19 testing whenever he travels between Canada, the US and Canada. In Ontario, where Peterson lectures, he must still cover himself up. Canadians who aren’t vaccinated are prohibited from flying out of the country.
“My father isn’t vaccinated. He decided not to, partly because they were telling him he had to,” Peterson explained. “In any case, it’s extraordinarily annoying to see this happening, and to then find out that there’s nothing behind it except the most instrumental and cowardly random polling is extremely disheartening and also maddening and also angering – all of those things at once.”
Peterson stated to Rubin that he was shocked by the Biden administration’s push for employers to enforce a controversial, potentially vaccine-related mandate. “how rapidly we stampeded to imitate a totalitarian state in the immediate aftermath of the release of Covid.”
Some commenters watching Peterson’s interview noted a certain irony in the prominent dissident getting vaccinated to “appease the mob” and regain his freedom, then being surprised when his freedom wasn’t given back.
Jordan Peterson deserves our full respect. But we’ve known that a vaccine won’t give us our Freedoms back.

Jordan Peterson received the vaccine in order to placate the mob. Now the mob will not let him alone. This is the lesson that we all need to learn: Never ever violate your principles in order to please a mob.
