The leftist Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary abruptly changed the definition of a word to help the left turn Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, into a “homophobe.”
During the Senate committee hearings that were held to consider Judge Barrett’s nomination to the nation’s highest court, she used the term “sexual preference” to describe… well, people’s sexual preference.
Immediately the left began claiming that she used the words in a “bigoted” manner. She didn’t, of course, but it was the left’s lie of the day.
And, lo and behold, Merriam-Webster’s dictionary suddenly redefined the words and re-characterizing hem from a neutral phrase to being “offensive.”
Take a look at this:
As recently as last month, Webster’s Dictionary included a definition of “preference” as “orientation” or “sexual preference.” TODAY they changed it and added the word “offensive."
Insane – I just checked through Wayback Machine and it’s real.

If you look at the bottom of the definitions, you’ll notice that the new one now calls the phrase “offensive” when it did not call it offensive the day before Judge Barrett used the words in her hearing.
HotAir.com discovered that the “dictionary” company even changed the definition on the exact same day that Democrats began claiming that “sexual preference” is homophobic and “offensive.”
What does this mean?
It means that the leftists that run Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary rushed to change the definition so that Democrats could use the new “definition” to attack Trump and his SCOTUS nominee.
Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary is now a fully invested arm of the Democrat Party and uses its so-called definitions to push leftist political goals, not to define words but to constantly redefine them to fit an anti-American political agenda.
