For John, BLUF: It is amazing that Prof James Peterson and his advocation of self-reliance is so triggering of certain classes of people. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Daily Signal, by Reporter Joshua Gill, 21 March 2019.
Here is the lede plus two:
A New Zealand bookstore stopped selling Jordan Peterson’s book in light of the Christchurch mosque shootings, but continues offering “Mein Kampf.”Here is an insightful Comment:
Management at Whitcoulls, one of the largest bookstores in New Zealand, said it would be wrong to support Peterson by selling “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos” in light of “some extremely disturbing material being circulated prior, during and after the Christchurch attack,” according to an apparent customer service email, likely referencing a photograph in which Peterson embraced a fan wearing an “I’m A Proud Islamaphobe” T-shirt.
The store, however, continues to offer Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” and Albert Cooper’s “Why Islamic Society Is Not Compatible With American Society,” according to its website.
Of course they are going to sell Hitler's book, the Muslims and Nazis were allies.And this is true.
A private company, so they are free to decide what they sell. However, it is close to censorship, which is a very bad thing, although seemingly favored by some on the extreme left.
