Conservative author and psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson has been suspended by Twitter for ‘hateful conduct’ after he posted a tweet mentioning transgender actor Elliot Page.

On June 28, Peterson was temporarily booted off the the social media site after he posted a tweet about The Umbrella Academy actor, who previously went by the name of Ellen before announcing his transition in 2020.

“Remember when pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician” Peterson said.

Fans of Peterson and his daughter Mikhaila have accused Twitter of not being a platform for Free Speech and are now wondering about Elon Musk’s stance.

Joe reports: The tweet was in response to a New York Post article in which Page said he is proud to introduce a trans character to the new Netflix show he stars in.

Peterson told the National Post: “I penned an irritated tweet in response to one of the latest happenings on the increasingly heated culture war front.”

The newspaper went on to say that Peterson had said he would “rather die” than delete the tweet.

“There are no rules on Twitter except don’t do what we don’t like today,” he told the Post. “They are always applied post hoc by algorithms and idiots bent on maintaining their woke superiority.”

Peterson’s daughter, Mikhaila Peterson, posted screenshots of the message her father received from Twitter, noting that Twitter is “definitely a free speech platform”. She tagged Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is in the process of buying the social media platform.

Twitter said Peterson’s post violated its policy on hateful conduct, the screenshots showed.

Its policy on hateful conduct prevents users from promoting “violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, caste, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease”.

Twitter’s rationale for this policy is to limit the abuse targeted at minority groups, including “women, people of colour, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual individuals, marginalized and historically underrepresented communities,” so they may feel comfortable “expressing themselves” on the site.

Peterson may gain full access back to his profile 12 hours after he deletes the tweet, which he told the National Post he will not be doing: “Twitters a rat-hole, in the final analysis, I have probably contributed to that, while trying to use, understand and master that horrible, toxic platform.

“If I can’t be let back on because I won’t apologise, I could care less.”


  1. Protection which becomes bullying and repression of any opposing religious views, in effect violently threatening any opposing religious views and demanding they be silenced is pure hypocrisy when those religious views are the dominant majority held view and are traditional belief systems of centuries. Anyone supporting hypocrites who attack the majority and favour the extreme radical minorities is unjust and evil and un democratic.

  2. Peterson is the Guru of right-think and self-determination, lauded by many. Yet he passed out from who-knows how many years of substance abuse and went off to detox and rehab in Russia? Uncanny how he has managed to knit his own failures into his proselytizing! and still seems to be talking down to most everybody. Still.. his eschewing the toxic jibber-jabber of Twitter may be a sign he is in fact free of some of his addictions.

    • It is no easy thing to get into and maintain recovery. Have you never made any mistakes? Quit judging, none of us are perfect but at least he is trying and being successful at his spiritual war. When you judge others it doesn’t make you look good. It takes huge courage to be public about your own addiction and other mistakes.

      • I see your points about Peterson the man.. I’m actually a follower. But everyone judges and especially Peterson. You judge him positively and judge any potential detractors negatively 🙂 Without wanting to judge him yet again? it seems everybody who is anybody has some addiction or defect or life-trauma. Adds to the package. Thanks and have a super day.

        • I’m a recovering alcoholic, I do know what it takes to overcome an addiction. For years, I have felt comfortable telling friends etc. about it and people are fine with it. They actually admire and respect me for that. So to see folks judge someone else for what they did years ago in the past is pretty horrifying to me. Surely you’ve done things that you are not proud of? Most people have. Hopefully, we learn as we get older and quit making such bad mistakes. NO ONE CHOOSES TO BECOME AN ALCOHOLIC. Our chemistry is messed up just for one so that from that first drink, we crave more. It’s called a disease for a reason.

  3. Hey Peterson stop pointing fingers at others when you were an addict for years, and yet, preaching to others… Stop trying to stir up drama to stay relevant. Your day in the sun is over… Lick your wounds, and live for the LORD, and not praise from your audience…

    • He has been in recovery for many, many years now. How about YOU quit judging HIM? And addiction and transgenderism are 2 entirely different things. He IS living for the Lord as well, I’ve watched alot of his videos – apparently you haven’t.

      • Addicts shouldn’t be preaching at anyone… It’s called HYPOCRISY. Peterson isn’t anyone’s moral compass.. Only YESHUA is…

        • He has overcome his addiction. Period, end of story. You don’t get to judge anyone else or are you a saint???

          • My statement stands… Go love on Peterson.. Following and listening to flesh and blood is always a loser… Enjoy…

  4. The so-called sexual orientation of satanists who are all pedophiles, is S&M and B&D, master slave, sadomasochistic. The same for homosexuals and trans and Bill gates and elon Musk. Just coincidence? The model world these elite pedophiles want to force on us, is a world like their sexual preferences, a world of domination and bondage and the submission of all the gentiles and christians under their complete control. Forcing people to eat bugs is sadomasicism. They want you to accept it and Why? Because all the new authorities in power/masters who you do not vote for will be such people. And among all elected officials/masters you slaves will be forced to vote for will be the choice between candidates like Rachel Levine or Pete Buttigigeg ONLY. Then the world will become just like Hell, because Hell is what and where S&M, B&D, sadomasochistic activity is NORMAL. It is all slave master torture all the time. These soulless people are antichrist. Christ is about Love and what is normal in Heaven. Make your choice. But if you do not eliminate them, they will eliminate all of you. If you accept and join them, plan on an eternity in Hell as their slaves. All freemasons become gay S&M pedophile satanists.
    Because that is what this final war, armageddon is all about, choosing which side you are on.
    The side of the antichrist devils of eternal Hell, is choosing to spend eternity with them in Hell.
    Choosing to be on the side, of Jesus Christ the God of love and truth who gives us free will compassion, empathy and mercy, who gave us our souls and a way to save our souls for eternity in heaven, will give you eternal life, with God our creator in Heaven. To practice sadomasicism in any form is death and Hell for eternity. It is sadism and that is satanism and will it will you your soul.
    This is the last opportunity for salvation you will ever have and it ends very soon. In 2023, everything will change.
    The sheep of Jesus and the judas goats will be finally separated for all eternity.
    It has all been a test. Sheep or goat? God is in control. The goats will never know freedom or have free will ever again.
    The Sheep will know only love, peace, truth and justice, but for the goats, there will never be any of those things again.

  5. Is transgender the height of Mental Illness, or is there another upper level to Mental Illness, to this phenomena sweeping through America, as it heads for the historical junk pile?
