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