Like Joe Rogan, Jordan Peterson built an audience and then gradually shifted it towards a neo-fascist ideology. A former co-worker brought him up constantly and wore his t-shirts every day. This guy seemed to have no idea he had been sucked into a disinformation vortex or that every time he said the name I cringed my face off.
You could be describing Glem Greenwald or a host of other ‘true’ progressive leftists.
Truth - we must constantly ask the questions of ourselves, what are they trying to tell us, what is the angle, big picture, what consistent themes pepper the content over time. With Rogan, he introduced a taster early with his alex Jones eddie bravo sessions to soften up the audience. People who wanna do or think whatever the fuck they want but get mad when others set boundaries.
