Episode #10: Eric’s Excellent Red-Pill Adventure

Download this episode

In this special solo episode of The Right Take, with Jacob taking some well-deserved time off, Eric hosts the show by himself. While waiting for next week to tackle the latest topics of the day, including the most recent CPAC, Eric decides to spend the episode discussing his own red-pill journey over the course of his life, as he evolved from a traditional small-town conservative into the outspoken American nationalist and unapologetic Trump supporter that he is today. Major events that shaped his transformation include his earliest memories of the 2008 election, his reaction to the Trayvon Martin debacle in high school, and his experiences in the 2012 election. From there, his experiences with numerous anti-Trump RINOs and “Principled Conservatives” in the College Republicans and Young Americans for Freedom during his college years, including the Milo Yiannopoulos vs. Ben Shapiro divide in the culture war leading up to the 2016 election, solidified his belief that the Republican Party and the broader conservative movement itself is a failure, and can only hope to survive by fully embracing President Trump’s America First agenda.
