Just want to take a second to let you know, as I'm sure you already do, that you're not alone in your thinking. It may not be the most vocal position to take, it may not be the most 'culturally sensitive' stance to take, but rest assured that you are not taking that stance by yourself.

I too take this stance. I can't believe that it is being swept under the rug simply because it doesn't fit their agenda. This is NEWS. Everyone should know what happened and it shouldn't be a secret that the shooters were a couple of muslims. I am not racist, nor a right-winger. I am not jumping to the conclusion that this was a terrorist attack by Islam yet. There simply isn't enough information for that. But, having said that let's share what we do know. Dig into their backgrounds, find a motive and deal with it.

Wishful thinking I know...

Voat is what you make of it. Because of its more open nature, you're going to get more people speaking their mind. I find it somewhat refreshing, even as I roll my eyes at yet another "hurr niggers!" comment. This is what open discussion is supposed to be.

Good call. Voat was where I read about the other media-unfriendly mass shooting this week when black gunmen shot 17 in a park.

This is actually 100% accurate.

Here are the articles related to the shooting that the mods censored from the frontpage just today:

Now imagine how many are deleted before they get to the frontpage.

Here's one I found in /r/longtail (it's fun to search for Muslim, Islam, terrorist, etc.)

Oh, but the frontpage does have this:

  • #12: Yes, The Planned Parenthood Shooter Is A ‘Christian Terrorist’

If only people could see past their own hypocrisy, they would see the real similarity. It's not the color of their skin, it's religion.

For a bit of fun, add every poster who posts anti white male stuff to reddit to the ignore list. After a day of so, your front page will be almost barren. People get paid to produce anti white male propaganda on reddit. Glad people are starting to catch on to this.

I find it harder and harder to even go there anymore. Only after I have consumed everything of interest here will I even consider opening Reddit at this point.

It is because the shooters are fucking brown. Those special snowflakes already have their panties all twisted. Besides this kind of outrage does not help the corporate interests.

Your use of the word snowflake has been deemed to perpetuate the racist misogyny patriarchal complex. Please report to the nearest college campus for re-education.

They're talking about the "Christian extremist" who shot up the Planned Parenthood, of course.

That guy is just as much a part of the news as this muslim couple. But even as a leftist, I want to hear more about this shooting. There are very few mass shootings done by multiple people, much less a married couple.

I agree. The crazy white dude who shot Planned Parenthood is a "single issue terrorist" just like anyone who commits arson or bombings on abortion clinics, and the animal rights people who tried to kill the university professor by cutting his brake lines outside his house.

I also agree a conspiracy involving multiple people trained, equipped and organized to commit an armed assault like this is much more interesting and rare. Thunderfoot had a good analysis that terrorists have figured out shooting people is much easier than trying to blow them up. Sadly I don't think this is the last firearms-based terrorist attack we will see in blue states against gun free zones.

I don't see what being a 'leftist' has to do with it (FIY most of my views are very left. Like 'I don't consider the democrats to be progressive' kinda left.)

This has to do with a couple of psychos who happened to be religious and brown skinned, who went out and slaughtered a bunch of people in cold blood. That should disgust and outrage anyone.

I noticed a new thread about how "yes, he is a "Christian Terrorist"" these are the same people that refuse to label Islamic Terrorism, Islamic Terrorism. If I was to blow up in public (or on reddit) about the damn Christians and Republicans, I'd be applauded. If I was to rant on about the damn Rag Heads in Paris, I'd be crucified.

The hypocrisy is dumbfounding.

Hit 8k upvotes before they were revealed to be Muslim, then fell off the front page and was locked.
