More Moral

The very word “moral” has been so emptied of meaning that it’s now used as shorthand for “I have no idea and can’t be bothered to learn.”

Here is another example:

The representative responded with an exasperated “Oh my goodness” and suggested that those focusing on her errors need to readjust their priorities. It sounded like she was asking to be taken seriously but not literally, as some observers have suggested about the factually challenged president. “If people want to really blow up one figure here or one word there, I would argue that they’re missing the forest for the trees,” she said. “I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.”

Facts, you see, are immoral. Believing in objective truth is also immoral. The only moral thing is vague, meaningless feel-goodness.

  1. All this attention being focused on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is nonsensical. She’s one of 435 congressmen/women, and none of her bizarre ideas will even make it out of the House as a bill (at least as long as Pelosi is Speaker), let alone become law in the Senate.

    I’m delighted that she’s being taken so seriously. She may ultimately achieve something very beneficial for the country, by dragging the Democrats so far to the radical left that their Presidential candidate won’t stand a chance in 2020.

    I agree with Diane Feinstein: run somebody like Old Man Biden instead. 🙂
