    Ezra Klein … in the same mold as Nicholas Matte, seen here accusing Jordan Peterson of hate crime: youtube.com/watch?v=1x8XPX7YW14

    I couldn’t listen to all of Sam’s podcast simply because Klein irritated the hell out of me.

      He does come off like quite the SJW crybully…doesn’t he?

      I’m not terribly familiar with Vox magazine…nor with this feud…

      …It’s really ridiculous, that this whole issue is dragging on like this.

      For the record…Sam Harris has said at least a few things in his career…that I would not agree with…and if I recall them correctly…they might reasonably be described as unfair, or paranoid…

      …And there are fair criticisms of his words…But on average…Sam has a really good head on his shoulders…and, a personality that makes him keep exploring the world around him, and asking questions…And that makes him intellectual gold, in my book.

      All these people piling onto his back…many of whom don’t even create their own original content, and exist in the more parasitic realm of “response/commentary media”…There may be a few meager nit picks they’ve offered, that have value…but for the most part…I have trouble seeing them as anything other than pompous, mouthy twats, who imagine themselves ethically and intellectually superior.

      I unsubscribed from Sam Seeder and his “Majority Report” [I’ve only shared a few of his videos here], specifically because of his tired, unimpressive railing against Sam Harris…Though, to be honest…I was never really a fan of Sam Seeder, to begin with…His production has often come off as kind of shoddy and boring, to me.

      …I’m tired of all the virtue signaling, online.
