Wall

How is the original meaning of the term, one that predates the conservative meaning by centuries a "redefinition"? BrentH 15:59, 6 September 2011 (EDT)

The conservative meaning is much more broad, while the liberal redefinition specifically omits the defensive purpose. --JefferyA 20:42, 7 September 2011 (EDT)
You do understand that "REdefining" implies CHANGING an original definition, right? And you are aware that "walls"--and the word we use to talk about them--existed long before the United States or Mexico, right? So unless you have a time machine, this is a non-starter. BrentH 20:54, 7 September 2011 (EDT)
The definition of wall has always included the defensive meaning. Think of the Great Wall of China or the Walls of Jericho. It wasn't until very recently that liberals wanted to redefine the word to omit that meaning. --JefferyA 21:08, 7 September 2011 (EDT)
And you can document that liberals want to "omit that meaning"? BrentH 21:23, 7 September 2011 (EDT)
It's a well-known liberal tactic to redefine language to suit their own agenda. They do this to turn people away from Christ and in this specific case, to promote the misguided idea of multiculturalism. The liberalizatuin of language is rampant, and I thank God that this project exists to combat that. --JefferyA 22:02, 7 September 2011 (EDT)
So which came first, houses, or defensive walls? Because those house walls had to be there in a permanent way for a defensive wall to be practical. --SeanS 22:06, 7 September 2011 (EDT)
Defensive walls. When people lived in caves, they erected temporary walls to defend the entrance from predators and the elements. --JefferyA 22:14, 7 September 2011 (EDT)
Wonderful. That doesn't change the fact a wall is a slab of X material that faces another wall and tends to hold up a Ceiling made either of X or Y material. --SeanS 22:15, 7 September 2011 (EDT)
No, it doesn't. That's not the issue. The issue is that liberals ignore the older, defensive definition of the word. --JefferyA 22:24, 7 September 2011 (EDT)
No, they really don't. At no point has there been a attempt to cover up the "Original meaning of the word" and heavily related, no REASON for said word to be changed anyways. --SeanS 18:10, 8 September 2011 (EDT)

So, Jeffery, that would be a "no," then, right? Thanks. BrentH 22:08, 7 September 2011 (EDT)

I've provided ample evidence. If you're not willing to open your mind and consider it, then the burden of proof is on you to prove that liberals don't deny that walls are used for defense. --JefferyA 22:24, 7 September 2011 (EDT)
Actually, you've provided no evidence at all; you've simply made some claims in a vague, hand-waving fashion. BrentH 18:17, 8 September 2011 (EDT)
Ok, simple. EVERY single one of my teachers in public school who had liberal views, ALL of my Liberal friends, and every liberal I know via the Internet. The burdon of proof is one you, not us Walter.--SeanS 22:25, 7 September 2011 (EDT)
