“Traitor” was the word used; treason is just one way to be a traitor.
> traitor - n. One who betrays one's country, a cause, or a trust, especially one who commits treason. > > from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 4th Edition
Defrauding the United States of America by knowingly and willfully filing fraudulent tax returns is arguably betraying the country for one’s own financial gain.
Scupper: put in a dangerous, disadvantageous, or difficult position
The word also has several nautical definitions related to sinking, whether intentional or not.
Fascinating video- at first, I thought the car was caught in a railing for the gate. Front suspension looks weak before getting stuck, and once atop the incline, the front tires are all the way up in the wheel well. I'm guessing they need new/stronger springs up front.

*Attracting attention in a vulgar manner. *Plausible but false or insincere; specious. *Of or relating to prostitutes or prostitution.
To be honest, I don't think saying it like this is necessary. Here are my arguments:
Maybe "nitpicking" is not the best word. Generally I assume that when people say "lesbianism" they don't exclude trans girls, especially on the amazing subs like this one or the r/actuallesbians.
I hope you can see my point and it doesn't seem mean or excluding, because that's the last thing I want. Also, I'm not saying that we shouldn't specifically include trans gurls in what we are saying, only that not mentioning us doesn't mean not including.

False. There's also deer-reeve, and then subbookkeeper, which as far as I can tell is the only quadruple double letter word. Arguably a tattooist tattoos on a tattooee too.
There's also Woolloomooloo, which also has three, but given it's a place, I thought it disingenuous to include.
A quick Google search leads me to a post saying that they're called "grammagrams", but the Wikipedia entry is under Gramogram, while also including grammagram as an alternate spelling. You can find a list of grammagrams here, if you're interested.
This was an interesting one to find though, since I know I've used a ton of these but never thought there might be a word for it, so thanks for bringing it to my attention OP.
Sistren seems nondialectal?! I've never heard it used, most modern dictionaries don't even list it, and the few that do, list it as archaic, obsolete, or "dialectal". The OED says of sistren and related forms:
> "In general literary use these were finally discarded about 1550 in favour of the pl. in -s"
You may occasionally encounter sistren nowadays, ~~but I'll warrant that every single modern usage you can find is intended as a facetious parallel to brethren, not as a standard plural of sister.~~
*edit: Obviously the crossed-out part was an assumption. Per /u/ripsmileyculture below, it was wrong.

Completely separate from your specific situation, this "rebuttal" annoys me. I know racism is "[d]iscrimination or prejudice based on race" by definition, but if someone calls something racist while it has nothing to do with race, it is usually not that hard to guess which one of these they actually meant. In you rebuttal of their claim, what you should prove is that you do not discriminate or hold prejudice against certain individuals purely because of their belonging to a certain group^(i), not that the claim of the person you reply to is factually incorrect.
i. I realise this description is imperfect as well, but I hope you get the idea.

The other commenters are using a DC comic to define this, which is okay. But that’s not what the word actually means.
It basically means something that kicks off a chain of major events. It’s been around a long time before the comic. DC basically used the fact they had a character named The Flash to use the phrase to great effect.

EDIT: Contextually, since the Twitter OP is talking about timelines and capitalized it as “Flashpoint”, he may in fact have been referencing the comic.

Ailurophobia would do or the route of the greek base miso-, giving misocattus but that sounds bad. Racism would certainly work for the second and third, its a pretty well known word and isn't exactly a fucking stretch to get there but for something more scientific is pointless unless he is trying to define a very specific group.
If by 'Indians' he is referring to those from India (and not native americans/first nations, because this pissed off mod sounds like pissed off angry american) then its someone of a mess scientifically given the substantial racial divides within India so it would be a simple national origin divider giving misoindioic. Or again, racism works too.
While amaxophobia would be fear of riding in cars it isn't quite what we are after, again going the greek miso- route to keep it the same gives us a range of easy options. Going the latin route is much better and we get the nice word autoodium, (or something close to that, my latin is very iffy at best) if you accept 'auto-' as substituting for 'auto-mobile' and not just meaning self. If not, then he is just hating himself and I am alright with that.
There. That was long and pointless.

It's outside the rules for this post, but I thought "HP Pavilion" was a pretty slick name when HP had the naming rights, because of the double meaning:
A lot of people on the Internet are not willing to accept the broad definition of irony in modern English.
"an objectively sardonic style of speech or writing. " with sardonic being "characterized by bitter or scornful derision; mocking; cynical; sneering" seems to fit the bill 
So does: "humorously sarcastic or mocking" 
But fact is, that "ironic" is a widely accepted description of such writing in question 4.

Yes, it is as depressing as when they added "figuratively" as a synonym of "literally"
Racial prejudice is racism. That's literally how multiple dictionaries define it. I really don't get why people can't accept that systematic racism is just a form of racism.
This question has come up before here and elsewhere. There's probably no single word explicitly meaning to be amused and angry at the same time.
Once in a while you'l see bemused used to mean something similar, but it's not standard and some dictionaries omit this sense entirely. You'll also see words like wry, sardonic, exasperated, piqued, huffy used in descriptions of it, but again none of those mean exactly "angry + amused"
>A principle or statement of ideas, or a group of such principles or statements, especially when considered to be authoritative or accepted uncritically.
I see you got an answer already, but recently I saw this pretty interesting word that also fits, and I gotta share: euphuism. It properly refers to a pretty specific literary style in the 16th and 17th century but it can also refer to any overwrought, highly stylized writing style.
"Sweet dreams" is a way of saying goodnight or sleep well. It just means "have (sweet) good dreams".
The word "Right" is Jared's way of acknowledging what Richard said, and it literally means "Yes" or "Correct". However Jared is using it in a sarcastic way, because he doesn't agree with Richard that sweet dreams are possible. He's saying "I agree", but being sarcastic, which means he's conveying "I disagree".
"If only" is a phrase that basically means "I wish that was true". It's a shortened way of saying "If the situation was different, then [I would be happy/I could do something I wanted to do]." Jared responds with "if only" because he knows that he won't have sweet dreams, but he wishes that he could.
So what Jared means when he says "Right, if only" is:
> I find it silly that you are telling me to have good dreams, because I know that I will have nightmares. I wish that I could have good dreams like you're telling me to.
It's way weirder than you think.
See "won't" comes from a time before they'd formally codified the spelling of will. Up until the 1800's there was a major split, with a big chunk of the world using "will" and a big chunk using (not making this up) "Woll".
So "Won't" isn't a contraction of "will not." It's a contraction of "Woll not." For some reason (probably because "win't" sounds dumb), the contraction lasted longer than woll itself.
Normal: "Conforming with, adhering to, or constituting a norm, standard, pattern, level, or type"
So if at least 51% of the population is heterosexual this works.
> Oh wow, another person who doesn’t understand what defund the police means.
I’m all for reallocating funds for mental health and other programs to stop police brutality and minority targeting. Can you seriously not see why the slogan “defund the police” isn’t the best? Defund literally means “cessation of funds or cancellation of funding. I’m not being hyperbolic. We aren’t winning people over with it because most interpret it as “no more police, you’re screwed if you have issues that may need police/authority intervention.” They aren’t correct in their interpretation, but it’s interesting when we say stuff like you’re comment as if we should expect every person to get the nuance. We expect the uneducated to either “get it” or otherwise they are hopeless racists. That’s a problematic approach. Instead of degrading others without reason (which is exactly what we want the whites to stop doing), maybe we should healthily redirect? Just my two cents.
Yeah, but isn't that systemic racism? I get how that form of racism doesn't apply to white people, I just don't get why all of a sudden racism and systemic racism is the same thing when systemic racism is just a form of racism. And prejudice based on race is racism, that's literally one of the definitions.
I'm not certain, as I am ahem not a horse person, but I believe the verb you're talking about is "to nicker".

This girl was planning on using her boyfriend's tragic suicide (which she clearly compelled) for her own personal gain. After his death Carter became a self-proclaimed advocate for mental health.
She organised a fundraising tournament in Roy's memory and posted on Facebook and Twitter about her attempts to save her boyfriend's life.
"Even though I could not save my boyfriend's life, I want to put myself out here to try to save as many other lives as possible," she wrote on Facebook.
Sorry, but that makes her a whore in my book, and as long as whore is a word in the dictionary, I will use it to describe whores.
I am not standing up for or against your point.
I just wished to point out, that what you just did there... the ad hominem logical fallacy (beginning of the vid), actually does a huge disservice to yourself, and anything you stand for or believe in sufficiently to speak out about.
This is because it is usually a strong indicator that there is indeed no actual substance or logic behind your point, and that you must resort to calling people names, or in this case making derogatory racial comments.
That isn't what unfounded means.
A similar rate of reported rapes to the police are found unfounded and result in a rape conviction. The middle ground is the overwhelming majority of rape cases where there isn't enough evidence to prove what happened.
You’re prejudiced based on race. That’s racism.
“racism n. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others. n. Discrimination or prejudice based on race. n. The belief that each race has distinct and intrinsic attributes.”
I guarantee you that you take comfort in some fictions, too. It's laudable to always insist on the truth to as great a degree as humanly possible, but almost no one lives that way. To do so would be very hard on the ego, and those who manage it probably don't have a functioning ego.

What liberal actually means: "Liberal can be traced back to the Latin word liber (meaning "free")"
What it says when you search "define liberal"
>adj. Favoring reform, open to new ideas, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; not bound by traditional thinking; broad-minded. synonym: broad-minded.
There is nothing free about modern liberals. The only real liberals are libertarians that just want as much freedom and as little government as possible. Liberals from just 20 years ago would defend any sort of free speech saying they may not like it but they will fight to defend it. Then they became the party of political correctness and now they are the party of cancel culture for those that do not conform to the tenants of the party.

So the article says that what would be perceived as racism toward white people is actually racial prejudice, but racial prejudice is literally one of the definitions of racism. And i'm not trying to argue that systemic racism doesn't exist, it definitely does, but systemic racism is just a form of racism, and one that is obviously not applicable to white people. I don't see what's wrong with looking at things that way.
"To let," definition #1.
I have no idea if Trump has or has not committed sexual assault, though if I had to guess my answer would be "probably." However, a partially recorded dialogue about what women will permit him to do to them because he is rich is not evidence of anything other than the low standards of some groupies. People hear it as evidence of sexual assault because that's what they want to hear.
I can do that too.
Totalitarianism: form of government that theoretically permits no individual freedom and that seeks to subordinate all aspects of individual life to the authority of the state.
Totalitarianism: A system of government in which the people have virtually no authority and the state wields absolute control, for example, a dictatorship.
Totalitarianism refers to an authoritarian political system or state that regulates and controls nearly every aspect of the public and private sectors. Totalitarian regimes establish complete political, social, and cultural control over their subjects, and are usually headed by a charismatic leader.
Notice these all use dictatorial regimes as examples, but do not require a dictator as part of the definition.

Well, strictly speaking because fascism is "A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism."
Silencing dissent on reddit doesn't create system of government, nor is there any belligerent nationalism happening.
Fascism doesn't mean "things I don't like".
Furthermore, this kind of "all speech is equal" bullshit creates an environment where bullying is belittled as "a growing phase" and racism is just something "you can walk away from".

As you mentioned yourself, you are not well informed and did not do your diligent research or watched leaked videos of the camps in Australia and here you are talking down on others and telling them what is and what isn't. Maybe we should be the ones asking, are you ok?
Furthermore, in order to contribute to your education and the fact that you mix up the terms "concentration camp" and "extermination camp" I was so kind to add the definition for concentration camp from a dictionary. Little hint, it has something to do with the verb "Concentrate".
"A camp where large numbers of persons—such as political prisoners, prisoners of war, refugees—are detained for the purpose of concentrating them in one place."

Anyone who says that is equivocating (intentionally or otherwise) between religious faith and faith as a synonym for "confidence". Faith in a religious context is defined as "strong belief in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual conviction rather than proof" (OED) or "belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence" (American Heritage), whereas the "faith" people have in science is (justified) confidence based on its methodology and track record. Not only aren't they the same, they're practically polar opposites.

Nothing, I believe that's why war in Iraq started.

No, it's not "progenitor" — that means "ancestor." The word "progeny" is basically the equivalent word that points forward instead of backwards, to offspring instead of ancestors. Like "progenitor," the word "progeny" implies a family relationship.
Or maybe you can use the word "descendant"? (Although be sure to spell it that way, ending in -ant, since "descendent" means something else.)

whiney *adj.*Alternative spelling of whiny.

I think if this exists it sounds like a relatively weak effect, since feminity can be demonstrated in many ways, and so can masculinity. Overall I think the growing gender disparity is more strongly evidence of biological differences since there you would have obvious and strong causality (... BY THE POWER OF BAYES THEROREM !).
Additionally we always have to ask the ultimate reason: Where do our different sexual preferences come from, not just proximately? Are they happenstance? Seems implausible given lots of cultural universals.

This is a piece of art. While we don't know in what way doge clogged the torlet we can guess that it is the second definition. Hypothetically if doge was to fill it to beyond capacity with people or vehicles, the movement would indeed be retarded. Now stick with me there. If doge was to eat a lot that mean he had to have been eating IN the torlet. What is there to eat in the torlet? Well of course a standard airline bathroom provides paper towels, torlet paper, soap, and water. As none of these are food we can conclude that doge had to be eating something left by the previous user. What would someone leave in the torlet? It is most likely that is was in fact someone's big fact #2 dump. If doge was to retard the movement of the torlet by filling it with people, doge had to have entered the torlet bowl and begin eating the left overs. At this point we could claim the torlet was clogged. After eating "alot" he was able to exit and return to his seat.

My personal theory is that it came from a old American word for bedbugs or a type of crop pest resembling bedbugs that has now become mostly archaic in modern America : chinch, chink. Even if it relates to the Qing dynasty or China, I believe it is a play on words created to equate chinese with a dirty, parasitic bug. Chinese were viewed that way at the time the word was invented.
Interestingly, "chinch pad" is archaic ebonics for a roach motel or a hotel of male prostitution. It is theorized that chinch is actually from Bantu tshishi and came with the slaves from Africa, which became chinch in English.
The usage of "chink" for bedbug is still current in Jamaica, but the word originates via USA and spread to Australia from there.
Double and triple contractions exist in English, but are hardly used because they're kind of stupid.

Hitchens was a very outspoken -- hah; this could apply to any of his views! -- proponent of generally hawkish ideas. The first definition I found was here (relevant portions):
> Supportive of warlike foreign policy; bellicose; inclined toward military action.
> disposed to warfare or hard-line policies
The general tendency is the willingness to use (military) force to back up foreign policy to an extent that less-hawkish people are unwilling to do.
One form this took was Hitchens being a big proponent of the idea that the Iraq war was necessary and just. That idea is pretty against standard US left-wing thinking.
Hitchens also attacked Islam a lot. He attacked all religion a lot! But some people on the left felt that he was unfairly attacking Islam, and by unfairly attacking Islam he was mimicking racist attacks but with better phrasing.
At the risk of putting words in his mouth, he felt like he was attacking an ideology that needed to be attacked. It's unfortunate that sometimes ignorant assholes and racists target the same ideology for bad reasons, but that fact doesn't give the ideology a free pass against criticism.
I'm trying to be as objective as I can!

Here's the definition of terrorism. https://www.wordnik.com/words/terrorism - Antifa is a terroristic movement and I doubt most of the people they hit are actually 'Nazis'. Most of the people assaulted by people in antifa are either Trump Supporters or Conservatives. I've actually got a big comment up in the thread with examples of violence by antifa. Not a single person who was violently hit was a Nazi. Granted I actually greatly disagree with Nazis myself but it isn't right to hit people because of their beliefs and many people who happen to be conservatives get labeled as Nazis as well. You're also 'blind' to the fact that not wanting violence to happen to anyone regardless of their beliefs is not defending modern day Nazis or any form of racist.
The funny thing about punching 'Nazis' or anyone for that matter is that it strengthens their beliefs. Violence should not be accepted.
If you want a primary source it's Jeffers v. Clinton. This is the final judgment in 1993 after it made it's way through the courts. They were found in violation of the 1965 Voter Rights Act and became one of only two states to be added to the original pre-clearance list.
Here's a thumbnail description of what the what the plaintiff's case was about.
>The redistricting process in Arkansas has produced past problems with the dilution of African-American votes, and the trend continues through the 2011 redistricting cycle. The first major race based vote dilution case in Arkansas was Jeffers v. Clinton. In 1981, African-American voters brought suit against the Board [Bill Clinton was on that Board] claiming the new redistricting plan violated Section Two of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. In the 1981 redistricting cycle, only three majority-minority districts were created for both houses of the Arkansas General Assembly—two house districts and one senate district.
>The court held that in Arkansas, African-Americans were located in geographically compact areas in the Delta and South Arkansas that potentially constitute a majority in some districts. The court further reasoned that elections in these areas are “highly racially polarized” because African-American candidates cannot win despite winning almost all of the African-American vote. As a remedy, the court ordered the Board to submit a new plan that created more majority-minority districts in the Delta and South Arkansas.
>the stress is now on optimizating space and integrating a slickness in the look and feel of the trains.

n. Favoritism shown or patronage granted to relatives, as in business.
I never said populism was bad. Also, I wasn't using populism as a slur but rather using its dictionary definition. So opposing trade because its seen to benefit only a corporate elite is most definitely a populist position.
>The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
believing there is any inherent difference in people due to the color of their skin is racist. You're clearly being racist.
I think they're called "Essential Oils" as an umbrella term because individually they're known as "Essence of (whatever) oil"
It's an old term but I guess it's more easily misleading now, where before last year it wasn't at all, not in that manner... since last year, the term "essential" has become a battleground of sorts in regards to who was allowed to do business during a chunk of this current COVID-19 pandemic. So that definition is first and foremost in peoples' minds, if not first in the actual dictionary definition of the term.
Definition of "essence" (more definitions at link):
>The intrinsic or indispensable quality or qualities that serve to characterize or identify something.
Definition of "essential" (more definitions at link):
>Constituting or being part of the nature or essence of something; inherent.
(First definitions only are mentioned here; click the links for more definitions, including those used for in regards to essential services.)
American English is weird. ;; Sorry if you were being funny/not serious, it doesn't always come through on the internet.
Edit: If you're paying $50 for one little bottle of essential oil, you're being scammed. Buy somewhere else!!
I'm not a full fledged botanist, but I was able to find a few references to anodic and the variant spelling of cathodic (kathodic) here, hope it helps some: https://www.wordnik.com/words/kathodic : Given meaning: In botany, turned away from the direction in which the genetic spiral runs: said of that half of a leaf which has this characteristic. The opposite half is anodic.
Botany terms are based on Latin, Greek old English and sprinklings of other old languages. I'm studying Botany now and I'm currently having a hard time with this trying to learn. Hopefully it helps you search for terms in the future though. The counter-clockwise vs clockwise rotation of leaf furls is an interesting observation, best of luck seeing how it pertains to plant genera!

Here are some of the definitions of racism for you. If you don't think that white cop was experiencing racism then you're pretty lost on the subject.

holt could be it. One definition being "A small piece of woodland or a woody hill; a copse."
Also, found that hurst pretty much just means a wood or copse generally, and is mostly obsolete outside toponyms, but interesting in that it comes from Old English hyrst which meant "hill" or "high place" in addition to referring to forests.

You're the one making the claim that you need dysphoria to identify as something other than your AGAB. The burden of proof is on you. Nice try though.
