Here are a few words that used to mean something before 2020, but now mean absolutely nothing. I might take it one step further – they often mean the opposite of what they once meant.
A fact used to mean “a thing that is known or proved to be true.” Facts used to be trustworthy. A fact used to be something like 2+2=4. Now, a fact often means a lie. The best example are big tech’s “fact” checkers which often tell complete lies or half-truths. When I see a fact-checker say “false”, there’s a 50% chance that it’s actually true. Candace Owens proved to all of us that fact checkers are not always factual.
Fact-checkers are an absolute joke. A biased, lying joke.
A conspiracy theory used to mean “a belief that some covert but influential organization is responsible for a circumstance or event.” If you said in 2020 that COVID probably leaked from a lab in China, that would have been called a conspiracy theory…until 2021 when it became an accepted theory worldwide. It officially went mainstream when Jon Stewart (former liberal) eloquently shared how this is the most plausible theory.
If you said in 2020 that COVID was a plandemic meant to usher in the great reset and authoritarian over-reaches such as vaccine passports, that would have been called a conspiracy theory but now it’s something that’s actually happening in France and being considered in blue states in USA.
Now, conspiracy theory means “the most likely theory.”
Racist used to mean “prejudiced against or antagonistic toward a person or people on the basis of their membership in a particular racial or ethnic group.” Now, a racist just means “a person that one disagrees with” or “a person who questions the mainstream liberal narrative by pointing to statistics and other data points that contradict said narrative.” For example, if you point out that police actually kill twice as many unarmed White men as Black men, then you’re being a racist.
Anti-racist used to mean “a person who opposes racism and promotes racial tolerance.” Now, it just means racist. One key tenet of “anti-racism” is to be extremely aware of everyone’s skin color and then treat them differently based on their skin color. This is opposite of what Martin Luther King Jr. meant when he said “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Expert used to mean “a person who has a comprehensive and authoritative knowledge of or skill in a particular area.” We used to be able to trust experts. Now, an expert just means “a person in a specific field that has some sort of knowledge and is willing to echo the mainstream liberal narrative.” Many experts on TV say “masks don’t work” while others say “masks work.” Actually, both of these experts are the same person : Dr. Fauci. Sometimes experts flip flop on their conclusions and this is now totally acceptable behavior from our leading medical expert. I guess NBA players are experts at basketball and they miss shots too.
Peaceful used to mean “free from disturbance; tranquil” or “not involving war or violence.” Peaceful now means “involving war or violence.” For example, the BLM riots of 2020 were considered “peaceful” or “mostly peaceful” but we all saw with our own eyes what was happening: the burning and destruction of buildings, including Black-owned small businesses, opportunistic looting, and the murder of more people than the murders that the protestors were protesting against.
Unproven used to mean “not demonstrated by evidence or argument to be true or existing.” However, when mainstream media says things like “unproven widespread voter fraud,” this really means “we haven’t really looked at or considered any of the legit evidence that exists.” For example, Tucker Carlson’s segment on the “errors” that happened in Georgia are some examples of the “unproven” evidence. It’s very easy to find more evidence, such as HereIsTheEvidence.com.
Science used to mean “the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.” Now, science just means “whatever the hell we want it to be.”
