For those of you who have read George Orwell’s dystopian future classic “1984,” you know a couple of things: First, the man was a visionary; and secondly, he was off by maybe a decade or so.
Article by J.D. Heyes from Natural News.
Without a doubt, many of the things Orwell prophesied about in his book have come true today. We have an all-powerful, all-seeing government apparatus in most civilized nation-states; we have less privacy than we’ve ever had; we have less freedom than we did even 20 years ago; and our news and information centers have become full-fledged propaganda operations in favor of the all-powerful state.
Here’s the latest example.
In a recently published report, Russia Today noted that the dictionary Merriam-Webster changed its definition of “anti-vaxxer” to now include anyone who simply chooses not to get a COVID-19 vaccine (and this isn’t the first time the dictionary has done this):
Merriam-Webster is again redefining language to fit a narrative, this time framing its definition of “anti-vaxxer” to include not only people who oppose vaccination, but also those who are against inoculation mandates.
The definition on Merriam-Webster’s website says “anti-vaxxer” means “a person who opposes vaccination or laws that mandate vaccination.” It’s not clear when it was written to include opposition to forced jabs, but many observers noticed for the first time on Wednesday.
“Welcome to ‘1984.’ This is the Ministry of Truth,” noted rapper and podcaster Zuby on Twitter, in reference to Orwell’s eerily accurate tome.

In October, the dictionary company tried to stealth-edit its definition of “preference” by suddenly claiming that it was “offensive” to reference someone’s “sexual preference.” Not so surprisingly, the edit was made just as left-wing kook Democratic Sen. Mazie Horono of Hawaii was accusing then-Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett of being anti-gay after she used the term to be synonymous with “sexual orientation.”
Meanwhile, in June 2020 the dictionary moved to expand its definition of “racism” to include “systemic oppression” of one ethnic group over another. That change allegedly came following a suggestion from a Black Lives Matter activist after losing arguments to people who pushed back on being called racists because they did not consider their own ethnicity to be naturally superior.
“But as National Review pointed out on Wednesday, the latest Merriam-Webster definition classifies 79% of Americans as anti-vaxxers. A Morning Consult poll in December found that only 21% of respondents favored forced vaccinations,” RT.come reported.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been one of the most outspoken pundits when it comes to pushing back on mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations.
A number of times in recent weeks Carlson, who freely admits he is not “anti-vax” and supports the COVID-19 vaccines, has spoken out against mostly elected Democrats who insist that in order for society to ‘return to normal’ Americans will have to be vaccinated. He has also noted that the vaccines that have been approved are all still experimental because they were approved under emergency conditions.
“How many Americans have died after taking the COVID vaccines? Not Americans who’ve been killed by the virus, that’s a huge number, but how many Americans have died after getting the vaccines designed to prevent the virus? Do you know the answer to that question? Do you know anything about the downside? We know a lot about the upside of the vaccine. We’ve been completely in favor of vulnerable people taking vaccines,” he said last week.
“But what about the potential risks? You’d think you would know more about that than you do. We talk about vaccines constantly, not just on this show, but in this country,” he added, nothing that elected officials including President Joe Biden continue to pressure Americans to get the jab.
“Everyone in authority wants you to get one. In fact, you’ve probably already had your shot, and good for you. If you haven’t had your shot, you’re under enormous pressure to get your shot,” he added, even though there have been a lot of deaths associated with them.
Carlson is now considered an “ant-Vaxxer” by Merriam-Webster simply for asking questions and seeking answers.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
