Jordan Peterson Calls For Regime Change in Middle East


On his podcast, Jordan Peterson called for regime change in Iran.

Journalist Michael Tracey shared this clip and called out Peterson for his position.

“Jordan Peterson calls on ‘The West’ to ‘get their act together’ and overthrow the Iranian government in the name of opposing ‘misogyny.’ Apparently Jordan Peterson is one of those guys who should just stay embroiled in pronoun controversies 24/7,” Tracey tweeted in response to the clip.




“If any of you have been particularly taken by this story today, you can always put pen to paper and write your congressman or your senator and let them know you’re not all that happy about the situation in Iran,” Peterson states.

“If the politicians got their act together and were stalwart in their opposition to this fundamentalist, totalitarian, misogynistic, brutal regime, that maybe it could be pushed over and that would be a nice object lesson to totalitarian tyrants everywhere in the world.”


Twitter users commented on Peterson’s remarks:

Peterson responded to Michael Tracey’s tweet.


I read this a couple of times and failed to understand your point @mtracey. Is this a pro-Iranian theocracy comment? Or is it somehow about what I hypothetically think about women? Care to clarify?” Peterson asked.

“Sure, happy to clarify: you’re calling for US intervention to topple a foreign government, also known as ‘regime change,’ which is probably the most reliably insane thing the US government ever does. And you frame it as some sort of great moral crusade to impose Gender Equity,” Tracey replied.

Paul Joseph Watson offered this video analysis of Peterson’s regime change comments:
