Dr. Jordan B. Peterson on Kekistan

University of Toronto professor and clinical psychologist Dr. Jordan B. Peterson appeared on the May 9, 2017 edition of the Joe Rogan Podcast.

In this clip Dr. Peterson explains in part the phenomenon of “Kekistan”, a fictitious, tongue-in-cheek country and ethnicity comprised of “shitposters” known as “Kekistanis” who worship the ancient Egyptian deity Kek, a god of darkness and chaos. Kekistan gained traction as a meme in Jan. 2017 due to the efforts of YouTuber Sargon of Akkad.

Also worth checking out is Sargon of Akkad’s vid having a pretty good laugh at the the Southern Poverty Law Center’s expense for getting their take on Kekistan wrong:

The SPLC is the organization which absurdly put liberal Muslim reformer Maajid Nawaz on it’s list of “anti-Muslim extremists” for his efforts in combating Islamist extremism, and was reprimanded by the Obama administration for being too loose with accusations of racism and bigotry.
