The Canadian psychology professor gives Maajid Nawaz this brilliant response to people who compare him to Hitler.
Jordan Peterson told Maajid Nawaz that comparisons to Hitler are making an "awful ethical crime".
He said: "I am not a fan of the radical left. These left-wing radical types can't even get their damn insults straight."
"Really, I'm like Milo Yiannopoulos or Hitler?
"What kind of thinking is that?
"And to use the casual comparison to someone like Hitler, I think that's an appalling ethical crime. You use that accusation under very specific circumstances, when something extraordinarily serious and dangerous has happened."
The Canadian psychology professor added: "I don't like identity politics at all. I don't care if the left-wingers are doing it or the right-wingers are doing it. It's reprehensible in my estimation.
"People say I go after the left-wingers more. Well, that's because they dominate the universities. That isn't my opinion, that's well documented."
