Brad and Dan demonstrate how the only standard of Republican orthodoxy left is whether or not one supports Trump’s Big Lie. Through examples from Liz Cheney, to Kevin McCarthy, to Internet-trolls-turned-congresspeople such as Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Lauren Boebert–one thing is clear: if you don’t believe in and support the Big Lie, you will be ousted from the GOP. This portends a scary future wherein democratic processes are eroded at every turn. It also means that January 6th is the beginning, not the end of the Big Lie’s effect on our public square.
They finish the episode by discussing the new God Bless the USA Bible from Zondervan, a White Christian nationalists dream come true.
