English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. backer

    An adherent is one who is devoted or attached to a person, party, principle, cause, creed, or the like. One may be an aider and supporter of a party or church, while not an adherent to all its doctrines or claims. An ally is more independent still, as he may differ on every point except the specific ground of union. The Allies who overthrew Napoleon were united only against him. Allies are regarded as equals; adherents and disciples are followers. The adherent depends more on his individual judgment, the disciple is more subject to command and instruction; thus we say the disciples rather than the adherents of Christ. Partisan has the narrow and odious sense of adhesion to a party, right or wrong. One may be an adherent or supporter of a party and not a partisan. Backer is a sporting and theatrical word, personal in its application, and not in the best usage. Compare ACCESSORY.

    Synonyms:
    adherent, aid, aider, ally, disciple, follower, partisan, supporter

    Antonyms:
    adversary, antagonist, betrayer, deserter, enemy, hater, opponent, renegade, traitor

    Preposition:
    Adherents to principle; adherents of Luther.

How to use backer in a sentence?

  1. Nick Heras:

    This is just another example of the almost Shakespearian drama that has unfolded between Nick Heras and Turkey since 2016, there is a real sentiment within the pro-Erdogan camp that the US was covertly a backer of the 2016 coup against Erdogan Erdogan.

  2. Donald Trump:

    He's a Hillary Clinton backer and an Obama backer, and, frankly, wouldn't Fox News at the time have been nice if we got Osama bin Laden a lot sooner than that ?

  3. President Obama:

    Time and again this election, Jeb Bush has been outshone by more charismatic candidates. On Monday, there was a slight variation on the story. Once again, Jeb was outdone by a much more talented politician, but this time, it was a backer and not a rival: Jeb’s big brother George W. Bush. It was the former president’s first appearance on the campaign trail this cycle, and it came just a few days before the South Carolina Republican primary, which is shaping up to be a make-or-break moment for Jeb. President Bush, along with his wife Laura and Senator Lindsey Graham, helped pack 3,000 people in for a rally in North Charleston. It’s proof that his popularity endures in South Carolina, but it’s too early to tell whether that popularity will prove transferrable.

In uncertain times I want to ensure that everyone understands that.
