New Book Claims Jordan Peterson Plagiarizes Adolf Hitler

The Devil and His Due: How Jordan Peterson Plagiarizes Adolf Hitler by Troy Parfitt offers into evidence some 3,100 instances of Dr. Jordan B. Peterson allegedly copying the written and spoken text of Adolf Hitler. Volume One of a two-volume series will be released on November 1, 2020 in e-book and paperback edition. Its length is 460 pages.

Jordan Peterson is a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, best-selling author of 12 Rules for Life, and pop-psych guru whose YouTube channel boasts 2.87 million subscribers. Often described as controversial, Peterson shot to fame after challenging Canada’s Bill C-16, which made it illegal to deny employment to or discriminate against people based on their gender identity or expression.

Troy Parfitt is an educator with qualifications from four universities: Edinburgh, Glasgow, New Brunswick, and Cambridge. He is also the author of three previous works of non-fiction, including Why China Will Never Rule the World and War Torn: Adventures in the Brave New Canada, as well as one work of fiction: The Bigot, or How I Learned to Love Donald Trump (a satirical novel).

In The Devil and His Due, Parfitt argues that “the Jordan Peterson Phenomenon” is a mainstream cult whose leader identifies as “the saviour,” feigns Christian beliefs, glorifies Satan, discusses “the Jewish question,” encourages converts to slaughter goats in backyard sacrifices that ought to be “sufficiently bloody,” suggests that suicide can be an effective method for achieving revenge, touts banned substances as “miracle cures,” and teaches that the alt-right project is “incomplete.” Parfitt also asserts that Peterson employs Hitlerite speech to communicate in a crypto-fascist code, but that his supporters seem generally unaware of this.  (more...)
