Usually, when someone stands up against misogyny and racism on behalf of four indigenous women murdered and dumped in a landfill by a serial killer, there’s a chorus of support.
Then there’s Russian/Christian orthodox fake Dr. Jordan Peterson, who thinks people who champion diversity and equality and stand against the murder of marginalized people from marginalized communities are “utterly sickening and pathetic panderers.”
Or maybe he just has a differing opinion than you do. I am not sure why you have decided this constant victim persona you now espouse is a great direction for you. Once it could have been said you were somewhat admirable…now you are a pathetic parody, like this guy: pic.twitter.com/wsv9v2VwaH

Jagmeet was referring to a group of indigenous women who a serial killer murdered in Winnipeg and how we need to help step up to prevent murder, rape, and violence of marginalized and racialized women in this country.
I get what Peterson is trying to do – he’s attempting to tell Jagmeet the murder of 4 indigenous women in Winnipeg had nothing to do with Misogyny or Racism.
Jeremy Skibicki was arrested after DNA evidence from one of the murdered women was found in his house after Winnipeg police discovered her remains in a Winnipeg garbage dump. Cops believe Jeremy dumped the bodies of his other victims in the same landfill months ago and might never be able to find their remains. And yes, his FB account and online personae support the narrative that he’s a violent white racist known to the police for some time.
Statscan has some interesting stats on violence against indigenous women that Jordan should read before calling those who advocate against all forms of violence INCLUDING that of white men like Jermey, Robert Picton, ETC who’ve been kidnapping, murdering, raping, and killing over 4000 indigenous women over the past 30 years.
- Violent victimization is defined in the 2018 Survey of Safety in Public and Private Spaces (SSPPS), as a physical assault (an attack, a threat of physical harm, or an incident with a weapon present) or a sexual assault (forced sexual activity or attempted forced sexual activity).
- Results from the SSPPS indicate that more than six in ten (63%) Indigenous women have experienced physical or sexual assault in their lifetime.
- Almost six in ten (56%) Indigenous women have experienced physical assault while almost half (46%) of Indigenous women have experienced sexual assault. In comparison, about a third of non-Indigenous women have experienced physical assault (34%) or sexual assault (33%) in their lifetime.
- About two-thirds of First Nations (64%) and Métis (65%) women have experienced violent victimization in their lifetime.
- Certain characteristics were associated with a higher likelihood of experiencing lifetime violent victimization among Indigenous women, including having a disability or ever experiencing homelessness.
- Indigenous women (11%) were almost six times more likely than non-Indigenous women (2.3%) to have ever been under the legal responsibility of the government and about eight in ten (81%) Indigenous women who were ever under the legal responsibility of the government have experienced lifetime violent victimization.
- Indigenous women (42%) were more likely than non-Indigenous women (27%) to have been physically or sexually abused by an adult during childhood and to have experienced harsh parenting by a parent or guardian. These childhood experiences were associated with an increased prevalence of lifetime violent victimization.
- Results from the 2019 General Social Survey (GSS) on Canadians’ Safety (Victimization) indicated that Indigenous women (71%) were more likely to perceive indicators of social disorder in their neighborhood compared with non-Indigenous women (57%).
- Indigenous women (17%) were more than twice as likely to report having not very much or no confidence in the police compared with non-Indigenous women (8.2%).
CBC: The case of a Winnipeg man accused of killing three First Nations women and a fourth unidentified woman will go directly to trial, without a preliminary hearing.
Jeremy Skibicki is facing four first-degree murder charges for the deaths of Marcedes Myran, Morgan Harris, Rebecca Contois and an unidentified fourth woman, who police believe was an Indigenous woman in her 20s.
He appeared in court on Friday, a day after police announced he had been charged in connection with the deaths of Myran, Harris and the unidentified woman.He had been arrested and charged in connection with Contois’s death in May.
The Crown said it plans to proceed by direct indictment with a murder trial, which means there will be no preliminary hearing to first consider whether there is enough evidence. Skibicki remains in custody.
Skibicki’s lawyer, Leonard Tailleur, says his client will plead not guilty on all counts.
About a dozen family and friends of Contois sat in court Friday, several wearing T-shirts bearing the image of her face and the words “Justice for Rebecca.”
Skibicki appeared in court in person with a shaved head, grey goatee with his hands and feet shackled.
He said nothing aside from confirming his name to the judge.
The winnipeg police were told that a serial killer was killing our Indigenous women and it fell on deaf ears. From an Indigenous point of view, police are just as bad as this scumbag name Jeremy Skibicki or on Facebook known as Hochmeister Anton von Gröening. They Knew! pic.twitter.com/L3qb5qftKl

The Guardian: The Manitoba shadow justice minister Nahanni Fontaine said on Twitter that she and others were experiencing “rage, despair, disgust and unspeakable sadness” following the arrest of a “monster” who had stalked the community.
“This alleged killer walked amongst us. He was in our city, our neighbourhoods, our places of work. He was not invisible. But our women, girls and two-spirited are,” she wrote.
“When will the protection of Indigenous women, girls and two-spirited be taken seriously? Winnipeg now has the distinction of having two separate serial killers of Indigenous women. Are we waiting for a third or fourth to rear their murderous heads?”
For some, the grief was compounded by political leaders’ failure to keep promises to combat decades of violence against Indigenous women.
As many as 4,000 Indigenous women and girls are believed to have been killed or gone missing in Canada over the past 30 years – although the true number of victims is unlikely ever to be known.
What does fake Dr. Jordan Peterson fight against when he tweets bullshit like this?
