I used to be liberal, until this crazy SJW/PC culture took over. And the democratic presidential candidates suck so much they make Trump look good.

sounds like you are still liberal. SJW is opposed to liberals, and freedom in general.

Right here, I'm a lapsed liberal too, for pretty much the same reason. And while the PC goons aren't really liberal, they wear liberalism like a skin.

I hate SJW/PC culture too. Still liberal through.

As a libertarian I'm not well welcomed by both parties, but I'm still here. Not because everyone agrees with me, but because I can have uncensored debates with people that don't.

I'm somewhere between a libertarian and a conservative. I still have some "liberal beliefs" when it comes to things like marijuana.

You have your own conclusions. You don't fit an ideology, or sample from them. You decide what you think about issues. The rest is designed, not necessarily by anyone or for any goal, to keep you separated from other people who have decided to think similarly. Once the ideology meme is pervasive, tptb exploit it to keep you thinking you don't belong to any one ideology and thus you have no chance of effecting changes in the world to manifest your ideals.

I don't classify myself as either Democrat or Republican, as I agree and disagree with both almost equally. Stick around, be a dissenting voice.

I know what you mean. I feel like I'm violating their safe space every single day. Facts they don't like get buried, and lies they like get upvoted to the top. It's ridiculous. And they have the gall to conflate me with a SJW. I swear they're dumber for their biases.

Now you know how we felt last summer. The Bernie kiddie invasion is over and people want Trump.

Yeah, free speech is the classic liberal value.

Im not a liberal per se but im definitely not a conservative either. As a jew on this website I understand where you are coming from.

I have sympathy for the shit that you have to wade through here, but if you're still here, I take that to mean that you know that there are lots of regular folks in here too that aren't so anti-Semitic.

I am still here because its one of the only websites with news links that I can trust a little bit. Im not saying the right is free of bias or agenda, but right now I have to believe its better than what the left is doing.

The jew hate I can deal with, but that doesn't mean im not going to be more careful in the future.

This is one thing that many people on voat and irl have a hard time with. Just like not all white people had slave owning ancestors; not all jewish people are rich, powerful, and support israel; also, not all muslims are arabs.

Well all you people talk about is how every jew in America is evil and shit. Im just a regular guy that wants his country to be great again. Just because one rich Jew is doing terrible things it doesn't mean we all agree with him.

I also don't understand what that link is supposed to show or explain?

I agree with your advocacy of precision in language. I also see value in the off-putting nature of many of the comments here, though. They serve as a filter to keep out the triggered and the morons who can't think about anything that might be offensive.

I'm here because I can find opinions that are not my own. Makes me constantly think about my own position on topics. If I can't support my own opinions, perhaps they need to be re-examined. Can't have a real discussion if everyone is just patting each other on the back for sharing the same views.
