Can confirm. When I first got here I was pretty taken aback and even offended sometimes. It took some time and reflection to realize I was no longer in my censored comfort zone where ideas and views are filtered.

This is what free speech looks like and it is a beautiful thing even when I disagree or think something is too inflammatory.

This place has helped thicken my skin and make me tolerant and accepting of individual choice of words. After the initial shock I think people actually learn to let to relax and and realize there is no reason to keep their guard up.

I always knew people where bastards, Voat has helped me reinforce my views.

[–] alphasnail 0 points 18 points (+18|-0) ago 

I didnt know that until I got here. This place has really opened my eyes and educated me about so many things that I would have otherwise completely missed unless I were here.

At first I kinda thought that maybe it's because i am a young adult that must account for my ignorance about stuff on Voat.

After talking to people much older than me what I've witnessed here I realized that people are generally sheltered.

The degree of control the Jews have over the beliefs and public conciousness is astounding, but this truth has been hidden so well that speaking about it results in shock and disbelief.

I just want to thank all of your faggots for making Voat so cool

I waited the whole clip to see kike and was left disappointed.

[–] FrozenFire74 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago 

Kinda tells you something about what's acceptable for humor. You can say Nigger if you're using it for humor purposes, but not Kike apparently. I wonder who would have restricted the South Park guys from making that joke...

I believe nigger comes from nagger, with a spin. But I might be wrong on this one https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigger#Etymology_and_history

But kike... It has a very particular historical string attached to it

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kike#Etymology

The earliest recorded uses of the word were in 1900[1] and 1904.[2][3]

The source of the term is uncertain, but the Encyclopedia of Swearing stated the most reasonable and most likely origin of the term is the one proposed by Leo Rosten,[4] according to whom:

The word kike was born on Ellis Island when there were Jewish migrants who were also illiterate (or could not use Latin alphabet letters). When asked to sign the entry-forms with the customary "X", the Jewish immigrants would refuse, because they associated an X with the cross of Christianity. Instead, they drew a circle as the signature on the entry-forms. The Yiddish word for "circle" is kikel (/ˈkaɪkəl/ KY-kəl), and for "little circle", kikeleh (/ˈkaɪkələ/ KY-kə-lə). Before long the immigration inspectors were calling anyone who signed with an "O" in place of an "X" a kikel or kikeleh or kikee or, finally and succinctly, kike.[5]

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, it may be an alteration of the endings –ki or –ky common in the personal names of Jews in eastern Europe who immigrated to the United States in the early 20th century.[2]

A variation or expansion of this theory published in Our Crowd, by Stephen Birmingham, postulates that the term "kike" was coined as a put-down by the assimilated U.S. Jews from Germany to identify eastern European and Russian Jews: "Because many Russian [Jewish] names ended in 'ki', they were called 'kikes'—a German Jewish contribution to the American vernacular. The name then proceeded to be co-opted by non-Jews as it gained prominence in its usage in society, and was later used as a general derogatory slur."

Compounding the mysterious origin of this term, in 1864 in the UK the word ike or ikey was used as a derogatory term for Jews, which derived from the name "Isaac", a common Jewish name.[4][6]

Trey Parker has poked fun of jews more than anyone else. He probably thought Heeb sounded 17% funnier than kike.

[–] ChessKnight 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

I don't trust you.

[–] draaaak 0 points 11 points (+11|-0) ago 

I guess they thought "HEEB" was sufficient. I just wish they went with "JEW".

[–] weezkitty 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

I literally didn't know what "heeb" meant until I looked it up,

[–] ChessKnight 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Yeah, this is a Kike job. The only option is to kill every kike. All Jews must die. Not many want to hear that, but every fucking Jew must die.

I've never really minded Voat's speech. I don't always agree with it, no. I certainly have disagreements with many here. But that's the nature of free speech, and that's what makes this place great. For better or for worse, you can say pretty much anything.

My first reaction to this place was more like, "fuck. If anyone in real life knew I was here, they are going to jump to some very inconvenient assumptions."

People don't understand free speech anymore.

[–] DishingShitLikeA 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

I send Voat links to my friends, relatives, and co-workers all the time. Being unabashed about truth is a fundamental necessity that is widely severely lacking. Due to programmed ignorance.

Spread the word for the sake of humanity and goodness!

[–] RoundWheel 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

People have been diseducated to not understand it and to recoil in its presence.

Voat reminds me of the internet in 2000

I love how we are like the raw real internet without any type of buffer zone to keep you from seeing (((the bad words)))

[–] Nutkase 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

I miss old internet...

[–] Lynch_Tree 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

I miss everything but the 56k modem.

Me too before the massive influx if porn and degeneracy.

[–] Elbower_of_Quants 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

Since when do people 'come' to Voat? People FLEE to Voat. There is no 'coming' like a gentle snow in the dead of night wherein organically in the slow dawn of morning the day before turns into a hazy thick mounting of white cold ash bumping birds from their perches and confusing early morning sun rays that scatter like orange lasers.

FLEE not 'come'.

[–] QuickMafs 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

I remember when the whole internet was like that, good times
