    We Triggered the Alt-Right, Lessons from MLK, the FBI Beclowns Itself (AGAIN), the War on the Unvaccinated Continues & Liberty Legislation Round-Up

    We Triggered the Alt-Right, Lessons from MLK, the FBI Beclowns Itself (AGAIN), the War on the Unvaccinated Continues & Liberty Legislation Round-Up

    On this BASEDBrief, Brad & Hannah re-cap the dramatic “backlash” from the launch of BASED-Politics.com. Spoiler alert: Nationalists and some far-right Internet personalities are Big Mad. Plus, they discuss lessons from Martin Luther King Jr. and their different educational experiences on the Civil Rights Era from growing up in the South versus growing up in the Northeast.
    Then, Brad & Hannah tackle the FBI’s latest week of absolute buffoonery and break down some disturbing polling data showing many Americans want the government to essentially wage war against the unvaccinated. To close out, they do a round-up of a bunch of great pro-liberty legislation being introduced across the country and, of course, do some hot takes and go over listener mail.

    BONUS: Interview ft. Senator Rand Paul on Big Tech’s Latest Censorship Purge & How the Free Market Can Respond

    Senator Rand Paul joins Brad on this Sunday BASED Bonus pod to discuss Big Tech’s latest censorship crackdown.
    The libertarian-leaning Republican explains why he disagrees with Big Government “conservative” proposals and argues that the free market can provide an answer.

    In a new Friday bonus episode, Hannah & Brad go over the 5 worst takes of the week. And boy, there are some terrible ones on deck: Kamala Harris comparing January 6 to 9/11, a crazy COVID mom that went viral, a socialist math fail, a ridiculous tweet from a Democratic gubernatorial candidate, and silly posts blaming Virginia’s I-95 crisis on a GOP governor-elect who isn’t in office yet. 
    What do you think is the worst take of the week? Vote here and we’ll announce the winner on Wednesday’s BASEDBrief: https://doodle.com/poll/fcekwmctqgwa7ar4?utm_source=poll&utm_medium=link

    BASEDBrief: AOC Gets Sexual on Twitter, Big Tech Makes Controversial Censorship Moves, Verdict for Elizabeth Holmes, Meat Shortage & More

    For once, Brad & Hannah can relate to AOC. On the latest BASEDBrief, they react to the far-left congresswoman’s hilariously narcissistic argument that her critics just want to sleep with her—and break down a recent surge in Big Tech censorship.
    Plus, they discuss the controversial fraud verdict against Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes and President Biden’s policy push targeting Big Meat, where he gets some problems right but the solutions all wrong. Then, Brad & Hannah chat about the merits of New Year’s resolutions and read social media feedback from the growing BASED community.
