I always thought it was "based in reality."

Yes. This is as close to a correct answer as anything.

"Woke" is fantasy. "Based" is reality.

Oddly enough, it actually came from people in like 2012 posting about "Abrahamic Based religion" which over time went through normal meme absurdity meaning closer and close to being relatable but extreme against idiot social norms, while being shortened to just based.

i.e. for stupid example, the cabbage salesman in Avatar being a "based cabbage merchant", or the my pillow guy being a "based pillow merchant". Even later on with stickman at the trump rallies bashing facists "anitfa" paid rioters in the head as a "based stick merchant"

Start replacing "Based <blue collar job>" with just based and here you are.

The wokepedia entry needs updated:

Kyle Chapman, also known by the nickname Based Stickman, is an American white nationalist and alt-right activist. He earned his nickname and prominence in the alt-right movement after he was recorded beating an anti-fascist counter-protester with a stick at the March 2017 March 4 Trump rally in Berkeley, California.

I vaguely remember he tried to make a name for himself by showing up to other events and referring to himself as “based stickman” but he turned out being kind of weird.

Jesus's "trademark" phrase is usually translated "Kingdom of Heaven." That same Greek phrase can also be translated as the "basic things of Heaven."

Jesus came to teach the basic things of Heaven. If you will base your beliefs, your words, your actions, your habits on His teaching, and play out the roles you find yourself in, in His character, then nothing will be impossible to you.

For, to be based on the basic things of Heaven, is to be absolutely based.

God is.

God is goodness. God is love.

God's Word is Truth.

Jesus Christ is Lord, and God raised Him from the dead.

Base everything you got on these simple ideas, and you will become unshakeable!

  • John 3:16 ESV

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

based A word used when you agree with something; or when you want to recognize someone for being themselves, i.e. courageous and unique or not caring what others think. Especially common in online political slang.

The opposite of cringe, some times the opposite of biased.

The latter usage is the original use as coined by rapper Lil B, and the word originally took off on the meta-ironic website 4Chan with the latter meaning. For that reason the word is largely used meta-ironically (without context you can't tell if it's being used ironically or sincerely as it's used in both ways) and was popularized in online political slang of conservatives and the political right before being adopted into mainstream online political slang (likely through shitposting websites or subreddits such as r/politicalcompass memes that are similar to 4chan in their meta-irony and "edginess" but contain a wider variety of political beliefs) and eventually adopted into general online vernacular.

When used in online political language it can mean "based in fact" or the opposite of biased due to the number of people who saw it being first used seriously by the online political right and came to the conclusion that is was related to the phrase "destroyed with facts and logic" in reference to right wing personality Ben Shapiro. * (added for emphasis by BA) (cringe but lol)
