Dr. Nina M. Lozano is a queer Latinx political consultant, activist and Associate Professor of Communication Studies at Loyola Marymount University Los Angeles. The activist does what activists do best – tweet their outrage:
Remember, the vast majority of the time, “hate group” and “hate speech” simply means “I don’t agree with them.”
Jordan Peterson sees the professor’s tweet and responds perfectly:
Indeed. Given her tweet, it is likely that Lozano does not have a grasp on critical thinking. A true academic would let Shapiro make his case and then proceed to write up an essay that critically analyzes the talk. An activist doesn’t have that skill set. Their skill set involves using emotions and manipulation to prevent the talk from ever taking place (or to disrupt it if it does take place).
A truly academic approach involves free thinking and critical thinking. An activist approach involves group think and indoctrination. These days, just because Lozano is an Associate Professor of Communication Studies, don’t make the mistake of thinking she knows the academic approach.
