Yes, but voat also stood by while they let neonazis take over the site, and we don't intend for the same to happen here

Where in the video did he say "Zionism is independent of a state"

He spent most of the video talking about how Israel isn't compatible with what he wants as a jew and how he feels zionism falsely speaks for jews as a whole.

He says he supported zionism back in the creation era of Israel, but now it's become simply an imperialistic Israeli nationalism ideology and he doesn't feel represented by it

coontown is not the same as shitredditors say, not even close. I don't care about proving the hypothesis of people who only care about destroying things anyway. Can't please everyone. We have to draw the line somewhere or saidit will just become voat.

Bloody taxes by useless_aether in Libertarian

Love it. The US revolted from England over just having to pay like 1% tax. What has been normalized now is a bit insane when viewed from afar.

It's stirring the pot, when you could communicate the information in a more neutral way. How is spitting in the eye of your enemy supposed to convert them to your side? It's just bad tactics. I'm not saying this as saidit admin, just as one human to another

Actually he here is saying the jewish lobby is one of the driving forces in the military-industrial complex that has taken over the US government dollars and is siphoning tax dollars.

He seems to definitely be saying the opposite as your title implies. This whole video is him calling out the jewish lobbying power's strong ties to the MIC, and how that is the main driver of US foreign policy and wartime action...

it's relevant to your attitude. You're not a conveyor of truth just because other people are offended or hurt by it, that's the point. It's easy to make up hurtful lies.

Yeah I agree, it could be right under the title.

I agree, I noticed the same patterns you mention. Reddit is so far gone, it's really terrible once you see the full scope of it.

Yeah that's a great idea. We've long wanted a way to build a repository of sources for each post itself, that'd be really helpful. Comments can do that too, but to have some sort of formalized way to do it seems like it would be helpful.

He openly admits to being a Jewish Zionist.

Source? I don't think that's true at all. He seems pretty anti-zionist, but he keeps his cards close to his vest.

a place for differing opinions regardless of good or bad intensions.

People who cannot argue their points without resorting to name-calling aren't welcome here on saidit. That's what the pyramid of debate means. You can have any viewpoint you want as long as you argue it intelligently and respectfully.

This isn't voat where any old shitpost is allowed. There are other sites for that.

We have it, but it only blocks private messages and not posts and comments. It has to be expanded to have more functionality. This is currently priority #19 on our to-do list out of the 61 total open feature requests. We'll get there eventually

I want there to be diversity in the media ownership instead of 5 companies owning 95% of everything... Like enforcement of anti-trust laws would be a good start

I never said there is no difference at all, I just said the difference is so minuscule that the significant policy matters wouldn't be affected. That's what the deep state is, that's why the military-industrial complex embedded itself within the government. That's why the US has been at war 210+ years of it's 240 years of existing. And why the war economy makes up almost 1/3 of the US economy.

War cannot stop or else the economy collapses. So they create reasons for war. And lots of people suffer as a result.

Yes, but they're not literally stalinists.... they don't worship stalin. Might as well call them Maoists and Leninists too while you're at it. About as accurate as calling the entire right wing of the US hiter worshipers

You see this is hyperbolic, right?

If that were wholly true, movies would be free.

Why would they want to make less money?

I don't think common folk are blameless. I just think people at the top are more to blame. They create the corporate culture we all consume, which guides our values.

No, it's not a banned word. Please don't act like this and deliberately misinterpret what I'm saying.

If someone is a stalinist, then that's fine to call them that. But calling literally half of all US voters "stalinists" clearly is not accurate at all. You can see that, right?

Some would say our presence around the world stablizes regions for our benefit as well as theirs.

And many, many, many others would disagree. Especially the people in Iraq, Yemen, Iran, Syria, and most of central and south America.

But you're right, I'm sure those with huge unquestionable power over us are working for the great good of everyone and aren't just selfish power-seekers. You're probably right

It's the most important thing because it gets an insane amount of funding, and kills millions of people. Everything else is small potatoes distractions by comparison. I don't want my tax dollars overwhelmingly going toward mass murder and imperialism. So yes, it matters the most.
