Redundant with what? Certainly not each other. It is possible for something to not be something without being its opposite. Is yellow the opposite of red? Is blue? Is any color not red automatically the opposite? Does red even have a universal opposite? Or how about the statement "I am not liberal." Only in the minds of fanatics would that automatically mean "I am conservative."
