In another terrifying Orwellian example of the powers of the media world – in this case, the Impressario Dictionary Merriam-Webster, Striving for Significance in the Digital Age – the official definition of the word “against cleansing” (Merriam’s modern edition – Webster’s Dictionary) Changed to include people who oppose mandates for forced vaccination.
It’s a subtle, but still shocking, example of how the White House narrative has traveled across the media sky From news, to talk shows, to even the shoddy business of publishing reference books.
RT reported about the change, citing a tweet from rapper and podcaster Zuby, who tweeted a photo of the changed profile with the caption “Welcome to 1984. This is the Ministry of Truth.”

Several others commented, and some indicated that they now fit the definition of “anti-vaxxer,” a term that has sunk into a higher degree than “nazi” in the language of American social justice warriors.

Others pointed out that this is what happens when the left dominates the media landscape.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary has updated its definition of “anti-vaxxer” to include anyone who opposes mandatory vaccinations.
When the left controls the language, they control the narrative.

This isn’t the first time Merriam-Webster has been involved in an ugly political episode. Back in October, Merriam-Webster She amended her definition of the word “preference” to explicitly note that it is now considered “offensive” in reference to a person’s “sexual preference”. The review helped support Democratic Hawaiian Senator Mazi Hirono when she accused Supreme Court nominee Amy Connie Barrett of bias against homosexuality when she used the term as a synonym for “sexual orientation.”
For registration, the term “against vaccination” is relatively new, After I entered the Merriam-Webster dictionary in 2009. The intended meaning is that anyone who expresses doubts about vaccines or their safety is described as a conspiracy theorist who is not on par with “9/11 Hunters” or those who believe in “Flat Earth” conspiracies.
In the 21st century, all media companies are forced to find new ways to innovate and generate income, and now that their entire dictionary is freely available online and has begun to diminish book sales growth, we assume that MW has, in and of itself, the path, decides to innovate. Since no one cares about the facts and the correct use of words, they will only tell you whether or not their use will make you racist.
