I keep seeing it used in comments in various places online but am genuinely at a loss to understand what its meant ot mean or convey Anyone help an old fella out here? 'Based and Redpilled is a phrase combining the popular internet slang terms "based," essentially the opposite of cringe, and "redpilled," a term used to describe someone who has experienced an epiphany of an unpleasant truth of reality and can no longer see things the same way. The combined phrase is most often used to praise controversial people or opinions and is most frequently used on 4chan's /pol/ board, both ironically and sincerely.' https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/based-and-redpilled Edit: Not to be taken too literally though, that just explains the origins, but it's used a lot outside of edgy message boards too these days.
