Gary McCoy - [MEME] "Don't be a slave to stupid rules." ~Jordan Peterson
Muhammad Rasheed - I've been a slave to stupid rules since I was forcefully brought to this country. The abolitionist movement, Reconstruction, civil rights movement and Reparations movements were my efforts to stop being a slave to stupid rules, but now I find a conservative (who is always angry about those movements) sharing a meme telling me not to be a slave to stupid rules.
Wait... you weren't talking to me, were you? 😲 😔
Gary McCoy - A conservative who is always angry? Not always. Just when confronted with stupid people and stupid policies. And no I didn't have you in mind at all when I posted this.

I know you didn't. That's why I posted that to provide a wider perspective. lol
Some of us have been actively fighting to get out from under stupid rules (Slaves Codes, Black Codes, Redlining, Broken Windows, Stop-n-Frisk, etc.) since the beginning. Since Peterson, his Intellectual Dark Web cronies and the conservatives conveniently pretend that systemic racism against my group isn't real, I figured his message was targeting a very specific demographic notably not me.
Gary McCoy - Muhammad I don't think Peterson is quite as you describe him. And he is the least crony Affiliated person that I know of. In fact the establishment attacks him on a regular basis for his non-conformist views.
Muhammad Rasheed - Each of the Intellectual Dark Web (Peterson is definitely a member) has their own specific axe to grind with some aspect of modern society's "stupid rules" culture. With him it was the pronouns thing with the LGBT trying to mandate how free speech is used within Canadian law. I think he's right in many of his observations about his dedicated ideological foes.
But I noticed that all of the IDW conspicuously read off the same canned script when it comes to my identity group's struggle, even him.
