Red Pilled: From Bernie Bro to MAGA Man in 13 Easy Steps

by | Oct 19, 2020 | Red Pilled, Zach Bradshaw | 2 comments

There is a movement sweeping across America.

Or perhaps it is actually several movements rolled into one.

Blexit. Walk Away. Proud Boys. Groypers.

Everyone is getting red pilled right now.

Sure, some are darker red than others. Some of those pills might even be purple.  But people are doing their own research. And many of their minds are changing.

Mine certainly has.

It’s why I’m writing this post—and those to follow.

Recently, I learned that generations become more conservative as they get older.

I can’t attest for my generation.  But I can attest for myself.

This is the story of how I went from “liberal” to “conservative” in a matter of four short years.

Or perhaps more accurately:

This is the story of how I realized I was a conservative all along.

Whatever the case, I’m a long winded guy.

So I’m going to break this thing down into parts.

Before it’s all said and done, there may be a few more.

Sure, these are public posts.  But this is also me trying to put together all the puzzle pieces for myself.

Thanks for bearing with me as I do. 🙏🙏🙏

Here’s a preview of what’s to come.

1. Choking on the Blue Pill

This is where it all started.

Nothing will teach you that “the left” sucks like getting older.

Well, I guess that is not the complete picture.

It’s more like:

Nothing will teach you the left sucks like getting older and trying to become an upstanding member of society.  That’s because most people on the left grow old but don’t grow up.


The Democratic party in America today stands for free stuff and moral relativity.

It’s bad for individuals.  It’s bad for families.  It’s bad for businesses.  It’s bad for our cities (See: San Francisco is a Sh!thole; Los Angeles Has Fallen).  It’s bad for our country.

I wasn’t happy about it.

I simply found that it was true.

Life taught me.

COMING SOON: Choking on the Blue Pill

2. Rise of the Citizen Journalist

I’m a research animal.

That’s what makes me so good at SEO.

If I had more time, I might spend all my days in research.  In fact, I may eventually set up my businesses so that I can.

In the meantime, I’m just grateful to live in the 2020s…


…Otherwise, I might still believe the mainstream lies like so many of my peers.

I have to give a big thanks to Tim Pool, Dave Rubin, Kim Iversen, and others.

I appreciate them all. Plus, it looks fun AF.

By the time it’s all said and done, Zach Bradshaw might join the fray.

It’s easy to succumb to information overload but I have to know the truth.

Thank God we have the opportunity to find it.

COMING SOON: Rise of the Citizen Journalist

3. Leaving the Plantation

This one will probably piss some people off.

It’s probably also the one I feel most compelled to write.

One reason:

It will keep me from arguing on Facebook. 😂😂😂

I can lay out my research in one place and just post the link instead of writing social media essays.

But the bigger reason:

It’s also very close to my heart.

As a person of mixed race, race relations in America are important to me.  Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation out there.  Otherwise, no sane black person in America would EVER be a democrat.


Yep, I said it.

Give me a couple days and I’ll back it up.

COMING SOON: Leaving the Plantation

4. America Was Always Great

Here’s another unpopular opinion for you.

Or at least, it’s not a “hip” opinion.

Nowadays, the mainstream thinking is more like:

“America was built on slavery.”
“The Founding Fathers were white supremacists.”
“America is evil.”

I’m not embarrassed to say I used to believe the hype. After all, slavery was a real thing. So was the Trail of Tears.

However, it just isn’t that simple.

Human history is complicated. But the more I learn about ours, the more America seems like a beacon of light in a cold, dark world.

American exceptionalism is real.

The world needs it.

And if we don’t wake the fnck up, we’re all about to lose it.

COMING SOON: America Was Always Great

5. Jeffrey Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself

As Jesse Lee Peterson says:

“Satan is their daddy.”

It’s hard to argue against it when you look into guys like Jeffrey Epstein.  These people are evil. It’s not about how he died (if he’s even really dead).  It’s about what he got away with doing while he was alive.  This is a bone-chilling story.

Sure, the official narrative on his death doesn’t add up.

But that’s not nearly the worst of it.

Neither is how much of a monster the man truly was.  And this guy was a true demon.

The scariest part is how many powerful people he was connected with.

I couldn’t help but research the crap out of this story.

I’ll lay out everything I’ve found and let you decide:

Did Jeffrey Epstein kill himself?

COMING SOON: Jeffrey Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself

6. Men Are Not Women (and Other Thought Crimes)

1984 should be required reading in schools.

If you aren’t vigilant, today’s left will fool you into their doublespeak.

Or think for yourself and get “cancelled” for thought crimes.

Meanwhile, transgender “women” are breaking women’s skulls in MMA. They are destroying girls in high school track and wrestling. They are shattering world records in women’s powerlifting.

All this in the name of “equality” and “justice?”

Y’all trippin.’

It’s time to stand up for truth. If we don’t now, we might not be able to.

Slippery slopes are real.

Just ask Winston Smith.

COMING SOON: Men Are Not Women

7. Trump Is Not That Bad

The left acts like Donald J. Trump is Hitler.

Sometimes I think it’s sad.

Sometimes I think it’s hilarious.

Sometimes I wonder whether there might be something else going on.

I mean seriously. What the eff?

Admittedly, I haven’t seen too many presidents yet.  But this one seems like the best one of my lifetime.


It’s not what I expected.  See the title of this series.  I voted for Bernie, bro.  But I ain’t mad at it either.  Trump has been dominating from day one.  And his transparency has probably changed American politics forever.

I guess they say he’s racist, xenophobic, sexist, and transphobic?

Well, your mom is a flat earther.

Read as:

You sound dumb, son.


Come back in a week.  Let’s argue.

COMING SOON: Trump is Not That Bad

8. Impeachment is a Coup/The Deep State

Impeachment was like the “final straw” for me.

First Epstein, then this.

Back to back, I couldn’t take it.  I had to start writing these posts.  Since then, it’s evolved into this 20,000+ word series.

But have no doubt:

I began writing these posts due to the attempted impeachment of Donald J. Trump.

I simply couldn’t stand it.  The Democrats were trying to impeach the President to cover up the dirty dealings of one of their own.  And the media squawked and squealed for them non-stop.

Meanwhile, real Americans watched the witness testimony.

And it was a total sham!

Like what the eff?  Smirking crooks.

Shifty Schiff and his Sopranos dreams.

It can be hard not to hate these people.

I watched almost every minute of witness testimony.

Now I own these domain names:


Yeah, I’m as serious as a heart attack.

COMING SOON: The Impeachment Coup

9. The Democrats Are Liars

Ellsworth Toohey.

We live in The Fountainhead.

Half the mainstream media is Ellsworth Toohey.


“The Democratic party in America today stands for free stuff and moral relativity.”

But it’s more than that.  It seems like they are working with the media to brainwash America.

To what end?

It’s hard to say.  But I highly doubt it’s for the good of the “working class.”

I don’t necessarily mean people who cast votes for democratic politicians are liars.

What I mean is:

The apparatus of the United States Democratic Party is engaged in widespread deception of the American people, and possibly the world.

Think I’m full of sh!t?

I’d love to know the details.  I’ll even pay you for your counter research!


COMING SOON: The Democrats are Liars

10. Jesus Is King

I might not have said this a few years ago.

But it’s similar to Choking on the Blue Pill:

Nothing will teach you “the left” sucks like watching the way Godless leftists struggle to live their lives.  😂😂😂   It’s terrifying.  So I don’t blame anyone for “clinging to their guns and Bibles” in times like these.

Christianity has seen a resurgence in mainstream culture and my own life.

Point in case:

Kanye’s return to Christianity mirrors mine.

For that and other synchronicities I am very grateful.

But it’s going to take more than benevolent coincidence to save us from what lies in the shadows.

We need a shared ethic and story.  We need an example.

We need to follow Christ.

Otherwise, we’re going straight to hell.


Look around.  We’re already halfway there.

COMING SOON: Jesus Is King

11. Doing What Is Right

I am a true Scorpio.

For me, everything is a battle of good and evil.

I care about doing what is right more than anything else.  I obsess over character.  And I think forgiveness is the most important principle to live by.

Yes, I’m intense AF.

I mean, have you seen My Life Goals? 😂😂😂

I’ve always felt this way. But my actions didn’t always show it.

Over the last few years, I’ve steadily become more and more the person I want to be.  Through the process, I’ve learned even more about what I believe in.

Because the truth is:

What we REALLY believe is revealed by the actions we take (or don’t take).

Half Manifesto, Half Prescription:

This is what I believe in in 2020.

COMING SOON: Doing What Is Right

12. God Save the Patriarchy

The “culture war” is a funny thing.

Everyone has an opinion.

In addition to the anti-American ones I mentioned earlier…

Here are some other popular ones today:

“America is built on the back of slavery and racism.”
“For the founding fathers, only white men deserved rights.”
“Surplus white men are a problem.”

You might not have noticed.

But masculinity is being eroded. Large swaths of the population think we have a “white male” problem.

Everything seems to be “male privilege” this or “systemic racism” that.  Meanwhile, we’re perhaps the most pampered humans that have ever lived on Planet Earth.

We eat better.  We live longer.  We have access to all sorts of crazy sh!t.

And guess what?

99.99% of us didn’t play any role in building the things we depend on most in day-to-day life.

Thank God for the strong men that built this country—no matter what color they were.

COMING SOON: God Save the Patriarchy

13. Coronavirus (& Other False Flags)

I saw this one coming.

It was obvious the impeachment scam would fail early on.

But the Democrats started going crazy.  They broke a bunch of rules.  They pulled a bunch of stunts.  People should probably be in jail over what happened.  It was like political suicide.

They knew they couldn’t win but they just kept digging their hole deeper.

Then I started making a prediction to my family and friends:

“There will be false flag and/or an assassination attempt before the election.”

I think Coronavirus is that false flag.

It was a setup.


Too bad it didn’t hurt Trump enough.  In my mind, that’s kept the assassination attempt on the table up until the last few months.  But I didn’t think they would let him debate Joe Biden.  So just like Donald J. Trump, I don’t always get it right either.  But I know a fake pandemic when I see one.

I was earlier than anyone I know on COVID-19.  And I was also earlier than anyone to say lockdowns were nonsensical.

Think I’m crazy if you want to.  But I’ll bring the research and historical context.

Please, be sure to bring more than just your feelings.

COMING SOON: False Flag Virus

The Ultimate Red Pill: 2020

I get it.  The majority of Americans are “normies.”

You aren’t politically active so you don’t get it.  The election rolls around and you’re like, “who is the worst of the two evils?”

Usually it’s a toss up.  I thought the same in 2016.

My top three was:

  1. Bernie Sanders
  2. Ted Cruz
  3. Donald Trump

Despite Trump coining the term, I thought Bernie was most likely to “drain the swamp.”  That’s what I cared about most.

Then Trump won and Bernie took the payoff.  After the election, my news sources failed me.  But my business kept expanding.  This allowed me to devote more time to research.

Eventually, I ended up here…

…on the Trump train.


I’m not the only one.

9 million.  Apparently, 9 million Obama voters chose Trump in 2016.  This year, I think that doubles.  If not, it’s probably my fault.

I should have come out with this six months ago.



Fifteen days before the more important election of our lifetime, I’ve gotta’ get it in.

PLEASE NOTE: I’m not perfect.  I’m sure I’ll get some things wrong.  Please, if you possess pieces of the puzzle that I am missing, share them in the comments below.  I’ll even pay writers who are willing to debunk my sources.  Save your counterpoints until the real posts but go ahead and start lining them up.  I made the switch from blue to red reluctantly.  You’ll need a mountain of evidence to move me now.  But I welcome all challengers and treasure new information.  Please, prove me wrong.

    You have always been a deep thinker with a huge heart! Thank you for helping bring the truth to Light!

  2. Cindy

    Zach, your Aunt Heather works with me and I’ve known she and your mom and other family for about 15 years or more. Good people and this article is AMAZING. Please keep writing!! I can’t wait to read the rest. If people would research beyond MSM, it wouldn’t take much for them to see. God bless you, Zach! May He use you in powerful ways for His glory!
