I expect and hope there will be confrontations of ideas. I hate echo chambers, give me a lively debate! Also, while we are at it, if people could study and practice effective persuasion that would be great.

Unfortunately, all I ever seem to get from Democrats I talk to are Ad Hominem attacks. " Guns are bad, you are a nazi to oppose banning guns!" kind of BS.

Voted democrat and intend to vote to gun-friendly democrats in the future (if they even exist anymore), nazis are 90% of the reasons I have guns.

10% is cause they cool as fuck.

I think what you want is critical thinking and valid argumentation. Not just persuasion, since you could have terrible ideas but with persuasion people with believe you regardless. Critical thinking aids people in evaluating ideas for what they really are while valid argumentation allows for ideas to be dissected better.

It'll be even more fun than arguing with the shill accounts, and might actually produce results. Bring them on I say.

Free speech is free speech. I dont care how the place is perceived when people are openly discussing/debating opinions.

Although I agree that we should allow free speech no matter how that makes the site look to your average Joe or Joanne, I still welcome the prospect of this influx improving the wider perception of voat. There's some smaller verses I'd like to see grow, and new goats offer hope for them.

Not really. I don't think a lot of them will survive here. After all they are shitheads from Reddit. They stayed while everyone else was banned. They didn't speak up. They did nothing. They are weak. They are stupid and we don't need them.

Jesus H. What if this is how they want to fuck us up? Run everyone off of Reddit so the lemming cocksmokes can come infest and ruin Voat? This thread already has bitchy little faglets whining in it. Think about it, they fucked Europe up by flooding it with nigger muslim refugees, is Voat being flooded by shit for brains faggot cucks?

Oh well, lock and load goats, this is now a target rich environment.

This is probably the most voat post I've seen in a while. Refugee waves really bring out the best in voat like nothing else.

I know this as much as anyone does if not more. The point is the censorship started a long time ago, that's when people of any character should have been bouncing from that fucked platform to let it flounder and die. If they put up with the bullshit this long only to come dragging in here after they themselves have been booted by the draconian faggots, I've got no respect for them. I sure as fuck aren't going to tone down for them and I'll probably fuck with them hard to see if they've community worthy.

Everyone gets fucked with when they come here. I imagine I was a bit soft when I got here from REDDIT. Yes, I was there. Yes, I had a fuckton of points and lots of gilded posts. When they banned Fatpeoplehate, I bounced. Ironically, I'm fucking fat. If I was a faggot weak brained turd, I would have clapped with glee and said 'hahaha..fuck you goodbye'. But nope, I bounced with them. I'd rather put up with their hate than censorship. There's something at my core being that loathes censorship. I've lost weight too. lol Fat shaming is a good thing ffs. I've got a ways to go, but I don't need coddled and if goaded and prodded, I get pissed and rise to the occasion to do battle. I need my anger. It gives me fire in my guts and energy, feed it until I've the fury of a thousand suns. I'm a man and that's man fuel. HULK FUCKING SMASH!!

Anyway, so there's that.

This is an opportunity to redpill people who are pissed at reddit. It makes voat look weak to whine about it like bunch of soy boys

If redditors have stayed there this long... Is there much hope for them? It seems like fitting in with the crowd is more important to them than free speech and learning the truth.

They stayed while everyone else was banned.

While who was banned specifically? r/creepshots? r/fatpeoplehate?

Coontown, how could I forget coontown. That really was where I got some big fat red pills about niggers. It wasn't just people bitching about niggers. It was links to shit niggers had done. It was just post after post after post of heinous shit that niggers had done that NEVER made national news but should have. But thanks to the MSM and (((those))) who run it, you'll never see it.

I had to know why. I had to know WTF was up with that. I found out. There's no going back once you know. Stick around, it all starts to make sense after a while, but frankly you'd be happier if you didn't know. But we've got enough naive people, that's part of the problem.

Eh I've been here forever (check post history) and I've always kinda put off by the blatant racism and neo nazi shit in literally every thread. I'm too far right for the SJWs on reddit and too cucked for the white supremists of voat. I mean, if that's your worldview then I couldn't give less of a fuck, personally, and you shouldn't be censored but I liked the old days on reddit where the blatant racism was there but it felt more tounge in cheek and was contained. I never really got the feeling that the community of even racist subs felt inherently superior because of their skin tone on reddit, not so much here. Not only that but I feel like im talking into a void here, like no one is voting anything up.

Yes he did. He mistakenly tried to fight a war on 2 fronts, one of which was an invasion into Russia. Not the best idea.

It's unlikely to change too much because they received the boot due to politics. The gun migrants likely share many overlapping beliefs of the established community as it is. If anything, Voat will become slightly more libertarian.

[–] 125225 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Exactly. Only right wing/ libertarian groups get regularly banned from reddit. I was pro gun on reddit, but as soon as I learned about this site I deleted my account and set up here. Unless reddit also bans left wing groups, or Voat gets big enough to rival reddit, Voat will be right of center.

I feel like these subreddits were kinda small compared to previous migrations. I also bet a bunch of them will be store owner shills. I would like an influx of people who normally don't discuss politics.
