It's his race as well. He might be a great guy, looks after his mom, his kids look up to him, knows his local grocer who works down the street, he still wouldn't be Scottish. His children might become Scottish, but he isn't, and he's making all the signals that he intends to wage war on the very constituency he's supposed to represent. If Peterson has an academical liberal-minded issue with drawing distinctions about ethnicities and national loyalties, he should voice them out loud. He's more than skilled enough at saying "I don't think we should talk about Whiteness because of this and this." He's skilled enough to actually make those arguments.
The man is not Scottish. The leader of the Scottish National Party is not from Scotland, or any of her neighbors. It's as simple as that, Dr. Peterson.
Let's say I, a Cantonese guy, was appointed to represent Scotland, a nation of 95-96% Scottish people. I'd probably bring out the bagpipes as much as possible, cut some of Sturgeon's most hated regulations, and be mainlining Scottish Whiskey as much as possible on TV. This is not hard, Mr. Peterson. He is not White, he is not Scottish.
He's not wrong. SVB's own mismanagement caused SVB's downfall. If 99% of your deposits are cryptobro money, you should diversify a quarter of it into pharmabro money. And so on. I understand they had 20 billion in losses due to holding long term bonds, they should have been shifting that away, and ringing up the White House the second it became an issue. This should have been a 20 billion dollar kitchen fire, not the whole regional banking 620 billion dollar neighborhood fire.
I think its interesting how they hung a shitty no name bank to dry and dangled it in front of us using leftie ''no bailouts" 2008 talking points and normie "get woke go broke" talking points. If the regime really wanted to protect something, we'd be getting the election 2020 treatment: people getting banned on twitter, "fact check" wikipedia links going up left and right, redditors stanning for SVB/distracting us as hard as possible, and the mainstream news wouldnt be concerned over it at all. CNN would be covering it up as hard as possible. I can look over r/Politics right now, search "svb" and find all these drooling morons crowing about the evils of Capitalism as we speak. We are allowed to make fun of SVB. This ain't it fam.
On a more techincal detail, I think we're seeing the risks of a cash-holding crypto bank in real time (they're very exposed to bank runs), and the long term results of printing money like theres no tomorrow are starting to affect bank's balance sheets. Interesting how the system twisted a crisis they themselves created (nonstop printing) into centralizing more money and power into their own banks (people are shifting their money away from small regional banks into the larger institutional ones).
It's well known that the same banks introduced black/other diversity political activists among the protestors to break them up. Come to think of it, this and Obama's 2nd term usage of racial activists was probably the birth of modern progressive politics: to bust Unions.
I think it's pretty obvious that Pfizer took out a hit on Project Veritas. Also, like that other guy said, the audience follows James O'Keefe the brand, not Project Veritas the organization. For a couple of reasons, that org is done if he leaves it.
I'm keeping this one.
