Here’s an interesting catch: Merriam-Webster now defines “anti-vaxxer” not just as a person who opposes vaccination, but also as those who oppose laws that mandate vaccination. That should be news to all of the people who’ve been vaccinated who don’t believe the government should force people to be vaccinated.

We wonder how recently that definition “evolved.”
LOL, this is Photoshopped right? If it isn't, god help us all.

Hmmm. Show me the laws that mandate vaccination. So far all I've seen are unconstitutional decrees.

This is the problem with not having books anymore. These jerks control all the information.

They change everything and anything to fit their narrative. They're literally changing the definition of words before our eyes and they want us to see them as the good guys? Yeah right.

Don’t forget: M-W are the same ones who changed the definition of “sexual preference” in realtime during the ACB hearings to score points for the Left https://t.co/E80zoN2LJ4
