Weekly Roundup: Biden Takes Office While MAGA Nation Wonders What’s Next

Brad and Dan discuss the inauguration, including the theological aspects of Biden’s speech and the civil religiosity of Biden’s approach. 

They then transition to how key members on the Right, including Tucker Carlson and Rand Paul, were “offended” by Biden’s call to dismantle White Supremacy and what it means going forward. 

Dan explains the troubling aspects of the 1776 Report. Brad explains why QAnon and the Proud Boys are in a moment of transition. 

They wrap up by discussing how to have empathy for individuals, but persist with unflinching criticism of institutions and movements–especially when it comes to MAGA Nation.
