The blog article references Peterson and tries to make him look like an ass by claiming he exaggerates. I'm really not sure about it. In German you would call the part which uses "public incitement hatred" a Gummiparagraph. It could mean anything. That's the problem.

Peterson just knows how that plays out because of the politics game his faculty is playing. You can listen up to the point he makes if it's interesting to you on his Youtube channel. I think he has valid points and if you start to listen into his lectures, you'll learn that it's not founded on thin air but rather more on his studies of authoritarian regimes and his psychology studies. 

Quite interesting! He has a strange canadian accent, but his lectures are very worthwhile.

"virtue signaling" seems to focus on people doing what they think is right.

That's not the context I have heard the term in.

Via Wikipedia we get a third definition which makes the most sense, IMHO.

Virtue signalling is the conspicuous expression of moral values by an individual done primarily with the intent of enhancing that person's standing within a social group. The term was first used in signalling theory, to describe any behavior that could be used to signal virtue—especially piety among the religious.[1] Since 2015, the term has become more commonly used as a pejorative characterization by commentators to criticize what they regard as the platitudinous, empty, or superficial support of certain political views, and also used within groups to criticize their own members for valuing outward appearance over substantive action.

[..] as many feminist and gender issues are..

I disagree.

I think not enough people are repelled by the openly anti-science stance of many gender study academics. I'm not only talking about bat-shit crazy US professors, I talk about Austrian professors too.

Addendum:

virtue signaling: acting like you might have values because it's opportunistic.

Best example is Justin Trudeau. He tries to overshine his destructive behavior in terms of free speech and environment with his support for homosexuals (not a bad thing) and the more obscure parts of gender politics (very bad thing).

Making it a crime to critizise religions (Islam) or to use fantasy pronouns is absurd.

Unser Eindruck war, dass in den Gender Studies oft überkomplizierte Wörter verwendet werden und eine starke moralische Voreingenommenheit besteht, die Männlichkeit oft als Wurzel allen Übels betrachtet. Und dass es Beiträge mit dieser Wortwahl und Voreingenommenheit ziemlich leicht haben. Also sagte ich, zunächst nur im Scherz: Lass uns einfach einen Artikel schreiben und argumentieren, dass Penisse eigentlich gar nicht existieren, aber trotzdem die Ursache vieler Probleme sind. Peter sagte: ja, zum Beispiel des Klimawandels.

To be fair: As soon as you gave people something, they're already sure they're entitled to it. You could do that with monthly free tickets to the cinema and it would be the same.

Still, universal healthcare is better than free market health care - at least for overall longevity and health. One of the reasons the US health system never produced the healthiest population.

Das darf man weder in die eine noch in die andere Richtung überzeichnen. Im Endeffekt ist es ein Trend auf den jetzt viele aufgesprungen sind und die Unternehmer machen ordentlich Geld damit.

Weder der Konsum dessen noch die Produktion ist verwerflich. Veganer Käse ist zumindestens ordentlich als solcher gekennzeichnet.

Arguing that a 4h-working-day wont fit into capitalim is a funny conclusion

I never said that.

I strongly object to this argument: [...]it’s about keeping you busy too[...]. That's just nonesense.

Also that non capitalism throws us back to pre-agriculture-aeons.

Show me a non-capitalistic economy model which worked out and came up with an equally efficient way of producing food.

Heck, show me at least a society which moved away from some kind of free market model (I for example prefer social market economey) which didn't end up with hunger problems.

As far as I know, there is none.

Have you seen these pics of brand new car graveyards?

That just shows, that in a free market you'll end up with people wasting their resources. But due to the fact that's just one of many players and a market with competition, the impact is neglectable. As soon as you step in and redistribute the wealth of everybody to such players, you end up with impacting the whole system negatively.

Just think about the finance crisis: If we didn't rescue the banks, everybody would have lost money. But the people responsible for it would have lost money in an over proportional ratio. Which would have been a good thing.

But saving them in some kind of neo-socialist argumented corporatism move, just set up an even bigger bubble.

I do not argue that it's the best way possible. I do argue for correct analysis and accepting the strengths of the system. Because it has strengths, and all players in it will use them to save the whole system if another competitor arrives.

It's actually really good. The guy brings it to the point: The Nazi reframed everything in a way where you have to actually argue. But due to the fact that many people believe crying Nazi is enough, they're not able to get their argument across.
