Isn't it hilarious how they cherry-pick and believe only the parts that match their make-believe fantasyland and completely ignore absolutely everything else?
So which is it? Do you believe the information that's being presented or do you believe it's all a sham? You can't have it both ways.
They're so mind-numbingly stupid that it's genuinely staggering. They constantly need to be told what their views are by people in media or some trashy tabloid in order to form their beliefs.
The thread you linked is a perfect example. It's filled with these retards projecting their own consumerism habits onto everyone else. They truly believe that people sit around waiting to be told their views exactly like they do.

The average dipshit in that thread has the IQ of a potato. Their version of "being informed" is parroting whatever the consensus is of those around them. If for any reason they're confronted, they find themselves completely incapable of reasonably defending their position without defaulting to assumptions, stereotypes, and make-believe.
If they're unaware of how to respond to something that someone presents to them, then they'll literally use Google of all things, desperately seek out confirmation bias, and post it as "proof" of them being right. The best part is that 95% of the time they didn't bother reading their own articles and are so completely braincucked, that they're totally incapable of distinguishing opinions from facts.
But I guess all of that is sort of concomitant to the mindless consumer retards of the left who perpetually eat up vacuous media manufactured hate-fantasies like a fat kid at a dessert buffet.
Most of them are a bunch of obsequious mental toddlers with the intellectual depth of a puddle of piss in the desert.

I honestly believe the audit "leak" was a trap to make the unthinking masses publicly admit the audit was legitimate. Nobody's calling it fraudulent anymore and they'll have a hard time of it later.

I can't wait for these suckers to start clogging up mental institutions once shit goes down though.

Socrates was right about the human mind being degraded by writing, and the internet is so much worse. If only he had known how bad things would really get.

Socrates did not bear witness to societies of no writing if he had gal to state this.

You've been consumed by modernity's temporal chauvinism and discounted civilizations such as the Scythians. The Iroquois are also interesting as their oral tradition spoke of at one time having a ballista that could sink ships and steel swords, which is corroborated by the Norse accounts who lost a ship to them, before a pacifist prophet convinced them to abandon the technology.

Temporal chauvinism is always there, simply because it's the best tool we have when it comes to judging significance of historical event.

That sounds prophetic, do you have a link to his thoughts about writing's degradation of the human mind?

Socrates didn't write anything that we know of, but his student Plato recorded some of his ideas. This is from Plato's Phaedrus, which is a dialogue between Socrates and the titular Phaedrus, in the voice of Socrates:

At the Egyptian city of Naucratis, there was a famous old god, whose name was Theuth; the bird which is called the Ibis is sacred to him, and he was the inventor of many arts, such as arithmetic and calculation and geometry and astronomy and draughts and dice, but his great discovery was the use of letters. Now in those days the god Thamus was the king of the whole country of Egypt; and he dwelt in that great city of Upper Egypt which the Hellenes call Egyptian Thebes, and the god himself is called by them Ammon. To him came Theuth and showed his inventions, desiring that the other Egyptians might be allowed to have the benefit of them; he enumerated them, and Thamus enquired about their several uses, and praised some of them and censured others, as he approved or disapproved of them. It would take a long time to repeat all that Thamus said to Theuth in praise or blame of the various arts. But when they came to letters, This, said Theuth, will make the Egyptians wiser and give them better memories; it is a specific both for the memory and for the wit. Thamus replied: O most ingenious Theuth, the parent or inventor of an art is not always the best judge of the utility or inutility of his own inventions to the users of them. And in this instance, you who are the father of letters, from a paternal love of your own children have been led to attribute to them a quality which they cannot have; for this discovery of yours will create forgetfulness in the learners' souls, because they will not use their memories; they will trust to the external written characters and not remember of themselves. The specific which you have discovered is an aid not to memory, but to reminiscence, and you give your disciples not truth, but only the semblance of truth; they will be hearers of many things and will have learned nothing; they will appear to be omniscient and will generally know nothing; they will be tiresome company, having the show of wisdom without the reality.

I'm pretty sure nobody in that discussion went to read the report or anything.

This is the MVP brainlet so far:

They believe the election was, and I quote, "Done did'd stoled by Xiden!", and no amount of auditing or proof or common sense will dissuade them from that belief.

The irony is answered by your comment ;P.

When you look at a thread like that, what you are seeing live, in real time, is how NPC talk to each other. At no time is any underlying assumption for their position considered, and the entire thing is really no different than a pack of screaming chimpanzees flinging poo.

Aren't chimpanzees supposed to be relatively smart though? Not really fair to compare them to an r/politics thread.

Well it is /r/politics. It was pretty close to rock bottom even early on

MSM is running full steam with the 'THEY FOUND EVEN MORE VOTES FOR BIDEN!' narrative with ABSOLUTELY ZERO mention of the fact that they found 54,000 illegitimate votes, a number large enough to swing the election 5 times over.

The MSM is FULLY controlled. China style.

You live in a one-party dictatorship that holds fake elections.

Vanity Fair is their source for accurate election and legal news?

Is the audit even complete? Wasn't the head of the commission fired or resigned a while back?

ALL the preliminary reports said there was inaccurate counting, all of which favored Biden. All manner of cheating, across many stations. IDK how it will magically match election night results... without more Democrat cheating and corruption of course.

The only reddit sub I go to now is 4chan, because for some reason the admins don't respond to admin posts there. I haven't seen people get banned for calling each other niggers, faggots, etc.

I don't know what it is about that sub but the admins seem to shy away from there. It feels a lot like a mix of old reddit and old 4chan.

Every other sub though is absolute aids.

Nah, I caught a 7 day sitewide ban there about 2 weeks ago for calling some seething homo a McFaggot. It was a post that must have hit the frontpage though, the comment section was filled with idiots, so I guess a few of them reported it.

I do wonder why the sub is allowed to keep going, I mean the mods have an autojanny with a hair trigger but people just keep finding ways around it and nobody usually cares.

I dunno I've said all sorts of crazy ass shit on there. You probably hit someone who was a leftist frontpage retard. Would be nice to know who it is but I'm sure it's a typical r/politics idiot

Never forget that reddit, even though it's a California company, exists on the Internet where most people aren't American or even human.

Reddit is devolving because its deeply creepy executives are systematically purging wrong-thinkers, a classic example being the original KiA.
