The Age of Fee-Fees

The Four Horses’ Asses of the Apocalypse

It was fun while it lasted.

Way back in the 17th Century there was a philosophical revolution. This revolution is commonly known as “The Enlightenment” or “The Age of Reason.” Sadly, the Age of Reason is dead. It has been replaced by “The Age of Fee-Fees.” (For those who don’t know, “fee-fees” is slang for feelings.) Enlightenment thinkers talked about objective facts and universal truths. They applied logic to the facts to reach conclusions.

The Enlightenment coincided with dramatic advances in science and technology. These advances allowed Western Civilization to literally conquer the world. Our Founding Fathers were steeped in Enlightenment philosophy. Thomas Jefferson was an Enlightenment philosopher, but he did something few philosophers were ever able to do: He successfully turned his ideas into reality.

In The Age of Fee-Fees, facts don’t matter. There are no universal truths, and words mean whatever you want them to mean.

The entire concept of race was invented by a white man. So was the concept of racism. The words are in English, which is the predominant language of white people. If white people can’t define racism, who can?

Can Merriam-Webster define racism?

Definition of racism

1: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race

2a: a doctrine or political program based on the assumption of racism and designed to execute its principle
b: a political or social system founded on racism

3: racial prejudice or discrimination

I agree with most of that, but definition #3 is problematic because it asks us to determine motive and intentions. Not only that, but it allows one person’s feelings to interpret another person’s words and actions. Feelings become facts. That is how Congresswoman Donqui-Chomperes can get away with a statement like this:

“In the last facility, I was not safe from the officers,” she told CNN’s Natasha Chen on her way into the Clint facility.

This is my imaginary cross-examination of Rep. Donqui-Chomperes:

Did they attack you? “No.”
Did they make threats to you? “I felt threatened.”
But did they say or do anything that was objectively threatening? “No, but I could tell by the look in their eyes I could tell they wanted to rape me.”

To a Democrat jury, “I felt threatened” is proof that she was threatened.

Whenever there is an allegation of a “racist” incident, listen to the language that gets used. Take, for instance, President Trump’s “racist tweets.” Objectively, there is nothing racist about them. Obviously, if Trump had used the “N” word or if he had said that “The Squad” was intellectually inferior because they have brown skin, that would be racist.

What he said is objectively neutral on the issue of race. There are only two ways that I can think of to make those tweets racist:

1. Change the definition of racism to include those tweets
2. Use subjective criteria (feelings, emotions) to determine they are racist.

Redefining words ex post facto is cheating. It is not logical. It is basically asserting that “It’s racist because I say it is.”

But using subjective criteria is not Enlightenment thinking. It’s not post-Enlightenemt either. It is pre-Enlightenment. It appears that the Progressives are regressing. It’s like they read Orwell’s 1984 and thought it was a DIY manual. They don’t want to free minds, they want to enslave them.

Anyone who tells me that “enslave” is racist is gonna get a midnight delivery of zucchini.

    I’m feeling threatened by Dems. Maybe we should lock them all up so I can feel better.

    Sounds interesting.

      I take all of these rumors with a grain of salt. It’s not that I don’t believe Epstein is a pedo and a blackmailer, I just don’t think we’ll ever know a fraction of who and what.

      • Constance says:

        Probably true but I think who holds the blackmail material just changed. Before it was Epstein and probably the FBI and DNC. Now the Trump administration has it too. So the Dems just lost their exclusive coercion tool.

      Article is from 2017. Will Adam Schiff’s throat continue to hold out? All that crowing…

    It’s well past midnight and I live entirely too far away for a zucchini delivery, but for some reason the word slave is considered racist. I don’t agree with that, but I myself have been criticized for using that word. Slave is but one of several words that are now deemed racist by the PC crowd 🙄

    I simply couldn’t resist 😜 BTW, if you somehow managed to drop off a load of zucchini that wouldn’t bother me at all 😉

    • Constance says:

      The PC crowd just want s to control you so they will always come up with words you can’t be allowed to use.

    I am so disappointed. I saw “Evita” on Broadway 3 times because she was so great in it.
    What the heck could have gotten into her?

    Outspoken Broadway legend under fire for homophobic attack on Sen. Lindsey Graham
    This backfired on a grand scale

      Patti LuPone is not helping sell tickets to shows. Why did she have to make it so personal? Cher and Bette haven’t even attacked with the gay card and they’ve been pretty vile too.

    • lateblum says:

      I’m very sad that she chose to speak out like this. I know it’s meaningless, but I wasn’t the first or the only person to send her a message to that effect. I’ve seen her many times, but I most likely won’t ever see her again should she rbe turn to Chicago. Like Barbra and Cher, who recently had a show, I was nowhere to be seen for their shows. It will be the same for Patti LuPone.

    • Anthony says:

      Patti Lupone forgets who got her started. Long before Evita she performed regularly at a cabaret mamed Les Mouches. I was among her loyal gay fans who were fixtures at most of her shows and hung out with her afterward. She had (still has?) a mouth like a truck driver, a wicked sense of humor, and could drink most of us under the table. Lots of fun to hang out with, was like ‘one of the guys’.

      She was also very sensitive to the pain of any of us being outed, and intervened in many families who were horrible to their gay sons and dsughters. What a disappointment to find that she’s now done a 180 and believes she is justified in her complicity in doxxing people who’s careers can suffer from public outings. What a loathsome bitch she’s become.

      • Somebody says:

        Wow interesting background, it does indeed appear she has forgotten her roots. It happens, fame changes people, usually not for the better.

        My 19 year old LOVES Patti Lupone, yes I have strange, nerdy kids 😂

      • Mothy67 says:

        After taking my sister and cousin to see Cabaret we had dinner at Joe Allen. We were seated next to Lupone. I had worked there years before so knew her to say hello. She went out of her way to give them an unforgettable time. Lots of drinks. They still talk about it 20 plus years later. Bummer she felt the need to go after Graham. Broadway is such an insular community. I guess she has forgotten how many of her contemporaries stayed in the closet for decades. David Hyde Pierce, Victor Garber, Kevin Spacey. They achieved mainstream success and wealth when it would have been a career killer to be out.

    • DeniseVB says:

      This is pretty good. The problem is obvious, yet I don’t see Alyssa Milano too concerned because this is a liberal city, don’t want to draw attention to that.

      • Somebody says:

        My sister lives in Socal, she made several comments about the homeless, filth, etc. I finally asked where did they come from, are they illegals? She said absolutely not, illegals live 20-30 to a 1 bedroom apartment, they don’t camp on the streets. She insisted 90 plus percent of the homeless are veterans, then went off on VA and orange man bad.

        Has there been any accounting? Do we know where they came from, how they ended up on the streets? There sure are a lot of them. Generally speaking when the economy picks up homelessness goes down, but we’re seeing the opposite here, why?

        • Myiq2xu™ says:

          Most of the homeless that we see camping on the streets are the hardcore homeless – they are not trying to get off the streets, they are just trying to make themselves comfortable out there. They are okay with being homeless. They don’t go to shelters unless the weather gets extreme. They like California because the weather is milder (especially in SF and LA areas) and the government treats them like an endangered species.

        • Constance says:

          In Seattle 80% of homeless are addicts. And they are perfectly happy on the streets. All the Progressive government wants to do is make an infinite amount of drug treatment available for free. The problem being the addicts don’t want drug treatment they want to keep using.

    What could possibly be “worse than a racist” ? Cory Booker is a POS.

      A trans burger doesn’t in anyway sound appealing, though 🤣 Except maybe if you live in Venezuela

    I have been thinking. not always a good thing. I am a woman of color. Just so happens that the color is white. I have decided to blame all my bad behavior on people that are picking on me because of my color, not my behavior. If it works for the squad why not me?
