Default The revised definition of "anti-vaxxer"

Well, it has finally happened: The definition of "anti-vaxxer" has been changed to something so broad that many of us would fit under it:

The newly updated definition of 'anti-vaxxer' according to Merriam-Webster, now includes "anyone who opposes mandates."

Perhaps Lewis Carroll was using that as a metaphor for far right politicos.

The OP points out the revision to the definition of "anti-vaxxer" done at the behest of Biden’s Marxist puppet masters but such revisions are reflexively blamed on "right-wing extremism" . Never mind it's the Left that's constantly changing definitions such as marriage, gender, equity and racism to embrace their agenda.

In Atlas Shrugged Ayn Rand explained how the Left controlled honest people by constantly changing regulations and definitions so they could be penalized and villified for non-compliance. Political allies of the ruling Leftists can violate the law with impunity such as openly operating an illegal email server or peddling influence as "art".

We also have a new definition of "vaccine compliance" which is odd since the "shot" is actually NOT a vaccine.

But then that is another argument.

Per Dr. Fauci;

Americans are now being told to go with the flow as White House medical adviser Anthony Fauci abandons the concept of ever being fully vaccinated.

“We’re using the terminology now ‘keeping your vaccinations up to date’ rather than what ‘fully vaccinated’ means,” Fauci said during a National Institutes of Health lecture on Tuesday, according to Bloomberg Law.

“Right now, optimal protection is with a third shot of an mRNA or a second shot of a [Johnson & Johnson],” he said. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are both mRNA vaccines.


And why not?


Change "redress of grievances" to an "insurrection" if it happens in DC
but
Change "riots, vandalism and looting" to "Mostly peaceful demonstrations," if it happens in Portland Oregon or LA California.


Change the definition, you change the meaning and alter the lies to quasi truth. Classic Marxist tactics.

Perhaps you should avail yourselves of what MW really defines it as, before trashing my post.

You obviously didn't actually read the definition MW posted, did you.

Here, I'll help the intelligently handicapped for my good deed of the day.

Definition of anti-vaxxer
: a person who opposes the use of vaccines or regulations mandating vaccination
So, a person could have all their vaccines, including the injections for COVD plus boosters, and because they don't support the idea that the injections should be mandated on people, they are, by MW's definition, an anti-vaxxer.

The stupidity is boundless..... attempts to villainize a group of people should be horrifying to most, but you actually support the idea.... I wonder what you'd have to say when those self same people, villainize something about you.

I hate to bring this up here. but it popped to mind.

this "Anti-vaxxer" mindset/definition is similar to ... but not exactly like... some people's view when they ask the question.

"Do you love America?"

A person may have a no other place they want and your family to live.
and a heart that wants the best for the U.S..
But if you point out real problems that need to be addressed and don't wave the flag and tear up at the anthem then you "HATE" America.
or at the very least you don't "LOVE" America properly. And want to make America look bad by bringing up America's ... "mistakes"() "all the time".


If you're not 100% on board with promoting an unquestioned greatness of "AMERICA!!!" (and only complain about democrats & socialist) then you're NOT a real American... and you're contributing to the destruction of our GREAT(!!!) country.

Similarly
If you're not 100% on board with these SCIENTIFICALLY approved, LIFE SAVING(!!!) Vaccines AND the Wise & Benevolent Gov't Vaccine Mandates then you are an ANTI-vaxxer(!!) who's contributing to the death of us all.
And must be corrected or crushed.
