It is a well-known fact that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but health… does this also apply to health? BlazeTV host Jason Whitlock of “Fearless‘ and his panel explores how Sports Illustrated is blurring the lines between standards of health and standards of beauty.
On Wednesday’s show, Jason fans the flames of the inferno created by Dr. Jordan Peterson’s was lit Twitter criticism of Yumi Nu, Sports Illustrated’s plus-size cover girlShe believed that “North America’s most honest public intellectual” got it wrong and should have said “unhealthy” instead of “unhandsome.” Fearless collaborators TJ Moe, Troy McSwain and Shemeka Michelle bring some hard-hitting and unexpected perspectives.
Jason believes that Dr. Jordan Peterson got it wrong when he tweeted that Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Yumi Nu wasn’t beautiful. We all know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, explains Jason, adding that Peterson should have said the extra plus-size model isn’t healthy, and no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that.
“He subverted a fact with a personal opinion, allowing the Awakened to once again evade responsibility for their truly evil plans,” Jason said.
“On Monday, North America’s most honest public intellectual, Peterson, responded to Sports Illustrated’s decision to put an obese woman with a beautiful face on the cover of its once-iconic swimsuit issue. He retweeted a New York Post Story depicting the bubbling Asian beauty beneath him, proclaiming, “Sorry, not nice, and no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that.”
“Twitter, of course, erupted in complete outrage, saying of Peterson, ‘A white man rudely told the truth about a limp Asian model.’ Twitter’s social justice army accused Peterson of dropping a poison bat of ‘white privilege’ and ‘white supremacy,'” explains Jason.
“Not afraid of a brawl, Peterson engaged his critics and reinforced his claims that the left wanted to redefine standards of beauty. He [followed] his tweet, saying, “It’s a deliberate progressive attempt to manipulate and retool the notion of beauty, based on the idiot philosophy that such preferences are learned and properly changed by those who know better.” i want dr Say that to Peterson respectfully,” Whitlock begins, “he’s missed the mark once again. He botched this issue. Beauty is an opinion and we all know that opinions are like booty holes; everyone has one, and everyone stinks.”
“The left does not want to turn the concept of beauty inside out. She wants to change the concept of health. She wants to reclassify obesity as [being] healthy. Virtually everything the progressive left promotes has to do with normalizing a culture of death, destruction and despair,” explains Jason.
Guest Troy McSwain lashes out in defense of the plus-size swimsuit model, claiming the magazine is spreading a message of self-love. From Troy’s point of view, people have to love themselves to reach the point of losing weight. But Jason didn’t have it. “Troy, the best thing I can do to show love for myself is put down a fork, push myself away from the table, and stay out of drive-thrus,” says Jason.
