Awesome, that's the attitude we should all take. I for am not racist, nor do I take issue with African Americans, but I'll be damned if the hate subs should be silenced simply because it offends me, that goes against everything I've learned.

Exactly. People have a right to be assholes.

Far, far too many treat it like it's a responsibility, not an option - which is my biggest/only beef with voat as a whole.

Doesn't that mean people have a right to be asshole moderators?

I'll note its a bit ironic that you want to silence her speech though. You have every right to complain but deliberately stretching the rules of this sub and belittling someone for their views strikes me a bit melodramatic.

Silence her? I just want her demodded, she can talk/post all she wants.

We have seen on Reddit that moderators with strong ideological beliefs will use their positions to pursue their beliefs. In fact this is what motivates many to become moderators, to influence others towards what they believe is most important.

Now the role of moderators needs to be one of a clinical, void of passion, referee. To allow balance and to fairly and objectively and without bias moderate the dscussion.

It will be Voat's responsibility to ensure moderators retain this moderate approach and to remove those who exhibit agenda and bias of any sort.

Agreed. They have the right to say something stupid, but others have the right to tell them what they said was stupid.
