Keri and Carter address Kumail Nanjiani’s self-hating denigration of “traditional masculinity,” the characterization of boys as broken girls, and the continual disparagement of fathers and fatherhood. They explore the “departure” from Google of Timnit Gebru, technical co-lead of Google’s Ethical Artificial Intelligence Team, and the drama surrounding it. Carter points out the importance and sophistication of AI and large language models, and implores non-woke ethicists to get involved in training the AI engines of the future.

After answering some superchats, they discuss YouTube’s new policy regarding the mention of election fraud, and Keri likens their language to bureaucrats in 1984 bragging about how many words they’d removed from the dictionary. Carter argues that in order to prevent the rise of an authoritarian government, it is necessary to let skeptics criticize the government publicly–even if and when those skeptics are wrong. He asserts that YouTube has voluntarily made itself a proxy of the state.

Next, they observe the hypocrisy with which the mainstream media buried the Hunter Biden story prior to the election, but are happy to discuss it now that the election is over. They end by watching a video of “Woke Santa,” who makes a young boy cry by rejecting his request for a Nerf gun: “No Guns, not even a nerf gun!” Fortunately, the Christmas spirit is still alive in Based Santa, who rectified the situation by personally delivering Nerf guns to the roiled child.
