On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Stanford professor and former Chairman of JetBlue Airways Joel Peterson joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss his recent article, “My road to cancellation.”
“I started my first business when I was 11. I worked a minimum wage job and I put myself through state colleges. I worked from four in the morning for 20 years and so white privilege or male privilege or whatever, it doesn’t feel like it’s part of my past,” Peterson said. “I think all Americans are privileged at a certain level. We’ve all been blessed by certain things.”
While there are still dissenting voices ready to push back on “wokeism,” Peterson said cancel culture is stifling them.
“The fear level is still very high on what these mobs can do. It’s a little bit of a French Revolution-style, destroy it all. I think it’s troubling,” Peterson said.
