Why Donald Trump's attempted assassination hasn't helped him politically by jerryk in news

I don't trust the polls. They vary widely, and don't seem to be an accurate indicator of the election.

People aren't voting for a person, they're voting for the party. That's why we have a twice-impeached convicted felon running against a walking corpse with dementia. It doesn't matter how badly one messes up or has a positive publicity stunt. People aren't changing their minds.

We always have, and nobody cared. It wasn't until reddit went rabid that they started treating every single word in reference to them like a pejorative and made a big deal of it. Then, ironically they made up a word "cis" which means "normal" (I guess saying normal is offensive to them, too, because it implies they're not.... DUHHH!!), and I laugh at how twatter claims that's a slur, just to mock their stupidity. To be fair, I'm not sure what they call themselves, as it keeps changing, and they always expect the world to adopt their vernacular. I would rather not be a part of it, and as long as they don't bug me, I won't bug them.

I never said it was a surprise. But they blame him for things not going a certain way when they actively participated in preventing those things.

These debates are all trash. I can only imagine what cringe it was to watch two walking corpses pretend like they're alive and strong. It's not going to get anybody to change their mind. They will just rant about how their favorite candidate's opponent pooped his pants, or stuttered or something. I'm sure if biden was a 34x convicted felon, republicans would be frothing at the mouth, but they're totally okay with trump over any of the other better qualified choices. Sticking trump in there is going to lose them the election, just like dems sticking hilary in in 2016.

Also, in terms of "establishment dem", "came to this site the day after biden"... ok, like it's some conspiracy I made a post at this exact time? I did it because I was invited to moderate, and to be blunt, I'm ashamed to be associated with a lot of the stupidity and would rather not.

I couldn't say for sure what year reddit finally became ground down to the impalpable festering heap of garbage we see today. It's been a gradual process. Was it when Aaron Swartz an heroed? Was it when the warrant canary died? Was it when they shadowbanned people for more than just spam? Was it when they started sitewide banning people for wrongthink or saying gay or fag in the wrong context. Was it for expressing different political views than the toxic-tranny empire wanted, even if you were civil? Hard to say. The frog has been slowly been boiled alive, and I can't say it's still alive at this point.

I look back and about 8 years ago is when I first experienced an account get shadowbanned with no recourse/notification/etc. and it happened right around the time I was calling out some really nasty big corporations and my posts made it to the front page. At that time, I think they had a bot that simply did "if X amount of reports in X time, we shadowban the account." and there were no appeals, or anything. Since then, I see it's actually visible again (shadowbanned accounts before simply didn't show up when you logged out), but I haven't tried to log into it again. I would probably be banned within a week for some minor thing.

Also, I'm older than you think I am. I remember trump being a self righteous douchebag back in the 80s and 90s, and thought it was no more than a joke that he was attempting to run for president. He ripped off so many people, and there was even a documentary "You've been trumped" about his unsavory behavior and actions. Dems must have thought it was a joke, too, because they stuck Hilary in there.

I read through some of your other thoughts, and it's difficult to organize it all in a non-run-on sort of way, but good to know some people are thinking a bit. (I see your closing, and ngl, I remember you, and you have given off some strong incel vibes) Also, I may be one of the masses of "dumbshit ideologues" in one way or another, but I'm working on turning things for the better.

this post is some ideology-based 'soft' attempt to, as in reddit, try and make censorship seem 'reasonable'

Absolutely not, and if that is what you inferred, let me set the record straight.

Even if I have the ability to, I am not going to become a censor nazi, because even if it makes things appear more civilized, it's only a bandaid to a bigger problem. If someone is overtly racist/sexist/whatever, being a dick or a censornazi isn't going to make the world by cancelling them.

The only time I can see it as being somewhat constructive in a completely open forum is if it's to handle spam or disruptive with noise such that it hampers free speech for other. (I mean that like someone just making dozens of threads and comments with a bunch of raving cursing nonsense, and the place simply can't operate at that signal-to-noise ratio.) Any other time, such things should be completely transparent and give an outlet to the proper place when possible: e.g.: "stop discussing your pet iguana in a cat forum, and btw, here is a link".

You have good thoughts about how we generalize and see patterns in things. I have brought up the exact same thing, along with similar examples before, and got shut down as being "racist", "sexist", etc. (Everybody is to some degree) As a more intelligent species, we have the capability to process more nuance in these patterns and make life better. We are never going to be perfect, but we can use our intellect to not hastily jump to conclusions that may not only be incorrect, but damaging to our society as a whole. Not every Muslim is a terrorist, not every christian is a selfish right-wing nutjob, not every tranny is a liberal psychopathic control freak dramawhore, not every black guy is an uneducated violent criminal, not every Asian is good at math, not every straight white male is a chauvinist pig, not every homo has aids... well, you get the point.

I think the direction we are going in terms of social media being poisoned by all this political dribble and ragebait is causing us to do worse, rather than better. Some of the more intelligent people may figure out they are getting played by big government psyops, but even some really smart people I know have succumbed to the bad behavior and hate for each other.

An example of a middle ground fallacy would be considering two statements about the color of the sky: one claiming, correctly, that the sky is blue, and another claiming that it is yellow, and incorrectly concluding that the sky is green.

In case you had not noticed, this thread was me declining modding such stuff, and I would much like you to do me a favor and if you see me ever becoming a power-mongering "green haired fatass who wants to censor people", I would love for you to call me out on it, because that's the last thing I want to be.

I know it seems difficult to infer, but this type of thing we have going on right now is for the best, imo.

We share our ideas, we stir the pot, and we don't have to be afraid of getting the ban-hammer by some neckbeard tranny living in their mother's basement.

And by that, I'm sharing how I think we can do better and slowly overcome the stupidity and political ragebait that's being dumped upon is.

I'll agree, that equality by reverse discrimination is BS. It's like a bandaid on a problem that you haven't addressed the root cause, so it will not fix that problem. Rather, it will make it worse, as the other unfairness aspect will cause people to resent each other more.

You don't address discrimination by having a quota of how many white, black, etc., people you have to hire or accept into your school. You address it by giving people a fighting chance early in life so they are better able to get those opportunities later in life. Then if you want to remove such perceived bias with school acceptance and jobs, then do a double-blind interview/score/merit based acceptance where the picker doesn't have race/sex/etc., related information when making their selection.

Obama didn't lie. Republicans all voted against it, then blamed Obama for things he wanted to do, but republicans shot down. Then they try for years and years voting for things to make it actively worse, then blame that on Obama, too. And the republican stuff when trump came into office didn't make things more affordable for healthcare, but rather the opposite: it resulted in a 20+ percent increase in premiums.

But do you know what nobody ever tried to do?

NOBODY ever considered handling the rampant corruption that makes anything healthcare related extortionist prices that could bankrupt any average person that needs it.

Then why do they actively vote to make them all worse every single time?

The right actively make things like healthcare or education worse by not imposing the proper regulations to prevent run-away gouging by the industry that ultimately becomes creates worse service for a higher price.

The left tries to "fix" it by socializing the cost of the unaffordable price, but also does not properly address that same industry regulation. The left also pisses people off by trying to bundle in unfair stuff like free sex changes, or arbitrary loan forgiveness that just pisses everybody else off, so they run right back into the clutches of the right thinking they will save them. I honestly can't blame people for doing so, but eating up ragebait and posting one-liner memes that don't prove anything isn't helping us. It's making us all dumber.

that’s what reddit is. “Amplify my views or leave.”

Bingo. And when I tell people about this place when going through a thread full of ban-bait where everybody talks about how they love trannies and gay sex books in children's classrooms, the few who do check it out take one look and leave because they see banter that is just as retarded and immediately get turned off. We have the freedom, the ability, and the means to be better people than reddit bottomfeeders, so we should at least try to be a good example of what people should behave like.

Did it get hacked through a known vulnerability, or just something easy to guess. I know "someone" who messed with a forum of asshats where they left the account named "test" with the password "test" as full admin rights. After using that to upgrade other accounts, and do things, it was no longer apparent it came from "test", and they never fixed it even after "locking things down so gud".

Team fortress 2, and left 4 dead 2. Two valve games that go relatively unmoderated, and people can turn a small image or animated gif into a spray that you can post on the wall in the map. 256x256, 512x512, etc. It's basically become a pissing ground for shock porn, penises, swastikas, and anything edgy you can think of.

I had a seat right next to the lavatory with a "saver fare" a while back. It was a bit annoying with people constantly coming/going. I had some massive stinky farts I had to release at some point, so I just waited until someone opened the door, and just let them loose. It's so loud on the plane anyways, nobody will hear a fart unless you make it loud. It was eye-wateringly bad, and nobody blamed me for it. Best flight ever.

Trump Haters Have LOW IQ by HappyMurderer in whatever

[–]RedditButt 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Agreed. Youtube is trying to emulate the brainrot of all the other extremely-short video platforms to draw in those with the attention span of a goldfish, and IQ to match.

But the whole thing is just a strawman argument. Someone designating themselves as haters/supporters already are a leg down on the intelligence hierarchy, because that's not what it's about. (they essentially are too stupid to recognize the strawman and played right into it)

The video is just like all the other retarded "debate" videos, where they try and make fun of someone for not having a detailed answer ready so they can discredit them, and whatever they're talking about. You could look up the 30,000+ lies told by trump, or the dozens of felonies he's already convicted of, or just pretend they don't exist because some random person didn't have an answer ready for you in 5 seconds. This thread is stupider than a /r/whitepeopletwitter post on reddit, but at least here you won't get banned here for wrongthink when you call it out.

I can see more and more why homos have been universally disliked and ostracized. The moment they get their foot in the door, they do stupid attention-whoring stuff like this, and act surprised when the inevitable happens. They're farming outrage-bait for more media attention. Still pretty bad they have to target a few teenagers riding around. If they're not life-long enemies already of the alphabet soup mafia, they will be now.
