Former Evergreen State College professor Bret Weinstein was interviewed today by Joe Rogan. Rogan opened the show by pointing out that Weinstein predicted that what he experienced at Evergreen could soon go beyond the campus. Many people on the left have mocked that idea for years but here we are three years later and we’re seeing a nationwide version of a campus “uprising.” So the natural question Rogan asks is this: What is coming next? Weinstein said he believes what is coming next could be much worse than anything we’ve seen so far.
“I have to tell you I’m not optimistic,” Weinstein said. He continued, “The people who are catching up to the fact that Evergreen has now spilled over into the world have not caught up to the fact that this is unstoppable at this point, with the current configuration. The absence of leadership is going to prevent us from doing what we should do.”
Later in the interview Weinstein explained that because the current protests are leaderless, there is no one with which you can even negotiate. This is what has happened in Seattle where the mayor and police chief don’t really have an opposite figure with whom they can discuss how to move forward.
