The internet does a lot of this, it gives that worst 5% a megaphone, and sometimes that's all you hear, and it leads one to the conclusion that humanity is a bit crazy. But then it's really not, it's just a selection bias created by the internet.

Oh, you mean the site with users that use the n-word every other sentence. The amount of hasbara shills on their is also annoying. I can't imagine a room full of Voat users. It would be an echo chamber of nigger constantly. I'm sure the majority of users are fine lads on Voat, I happened to be a user, I was banned in one sub, and I loathed the users who just spewed fallacies like it was their job.

Oooo I'm learning a new word today.

Hasbara - Hasbara is a form of propaganda aimed at an international audience, primarily, but not exclusively, in western countries. It is meant to influence the conversation in a way that positively portrays Israeli political moves and policies, including actions undertaken by Israel in the past.

It's /Pol, but with votes for who can make the most offensive sentence that's also comprehensible. I bet most users there are just using it as a sperg-out space, and laughing at the few actual racists who think they're among their people. It's just trolls trolling.

Revised for the politicians and the CFR:

"Don't believe that every member of a group is as bad as it's worst 5 percent.

Depends on what your definition of "the worst 5 percent" is. If hurting feelings is your definition, then give me your got damn 5 percent honor trophy and I'll put it on my mantel.

Also Scott Adams, "artists are dumb and don't know how to think, they never learned how to add 1+1, like I did."
