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.

It's time we took Voat back from these SJW libtards and make Voat a true democracy.

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.

Added to this, you can always check out the modlogs to see what is being removed. So far as I can tell none of that is going on in this instance. I think attacking an individual purely because of their beliefs is wrong no matter the belief.

You're right that is a concern for some of the users. I'd argue it's people over-reading into a situation and injecting the needless drama that dominates reddit. There's a public modlog. From what I've seen, and looked at earlier today, anything removed was removed because it did not follow the rules of this sub. Equally, people can easily start an AskVoat alternative.
