UPDATE: Thesaurus.com Removes “Redneck” & “Right-Winger” as Synonyms for “Obstructionist”

Another Grassroots Victory—

On Thursday the Drudge Report, The Gateway Pundit and others reported that Thesaurus.com included the words “redneck”, “right-winger” and “traditionalist” as synonyms for the word  “obstructionist.”
Via The Corner:
obstructionist right winger

After this was reported at The Gateway Pundit reader G.T. complained to Thesaurus.com.
They promptly removed the entry.

Now if you look up “obstructionist” you get these results.
thesaurus obstructionist

Here is the response from Thesaurus.com:

Dear G.T.,

As the largest, most authoritative digital thesaurus, we strive to be as complete and accurate as possible. We have more than 2 million entries and we update them regularly. After reviewing the entry for obstructionist, we removed it, and we are now in the process of determining the most accurate and up-to-date representation of the term.

Somebody may want to pass this on to Crooks and Liars.
