Caller Responds to Merriam-Webster's Definition of 'Anti-Vaxxer'

"Though, I've gone to the ICU for the three regular flu shot I've had in my life. I'm not getting that. I hear your thought. Here's the thing. When you said that by law, it's a law mandating it. Webster's own definition for a mandate is not a law. It is a command from a superior to an underling. They did not call it a law in their own dictionary. So how can you be against a law that's not a law? Yeah, it's not even we all know that Biden has taken the pen and the cell phone approach that Obama has to try to circumvent any kind of legislation. There's no legislating this. This is not a law.

Merriam-Webster's Definition of 'Anti-Vaxxer'

"Point do you know what the Miriam Webster dictionary definition of being an anti vaxxer is? I read this. And I looked it up, but it's true. This wasn't like an urban legend. This is actually true. And when you understand the left, when you realize they're distorted, bizarre worldview, a lot of stuff starts to make sense. Listen to this, the merriam Webster definition. Of an anti vaxxer. Is, quote, a person who opposes vaccination or laws that mandate vaccination. Look, think about that. The dictionary now calls an anti vaxxer any of us who oppose laws that mandate vaccinations. How the heck can I be an anti vaxxer when I'm vaccinated?
