Here’s what happened when we attended.

Jordan Peterson, motivational speaker and father figure to the alt-right, rolled through Austin last month. Peterson has been selling out crowds on his 12 Rules tour, where he imparts wisdom on young men with profound bonmots such as “if you see a cat, pet it.”

So we sent an intern to attend the rally to see what it was like. There were no cats, sadly.

Here’s Onaje McDowelle‘s story from the rally; listen to what he has to say below.
