  • Let's Go Brandon

    That's the chant heard all over the country thanks to the NBC ditz who tried to cover up that a crowd was chanting "F-bomb Joe Biden" after a NASCAR race pretending they were saying "Let's Go Brandon" (Brandon Brown won the race), a claim that resulted in widespread ridicule and mockery.

    What's amusing now is how both the Washington Post and CNN have decried the chant with the former decrying that it and the original version, are "vulgar" and with the latter naturally blaming Trump. What's ironic is that both WaPo and CNN have long cheered on such crass demonstrations when directed against Trump and Republicans. Then it was perfectly acceptable and understandable.

    Here is just one of many examples of how the WaPo had no trouble with
    people saying "vulgar" things not all that long ago.

    Over on CNN, Maggie Haberman (who is a political analyst for the network as well as the New York Times White House correspondent) reluctantly admitted that such behavior is nothing new but insisted that in some unexplained way this was somehow "different." It appears that by "different" she means that previously they were directed at people the MSM dislikes, which of course makes it acceptable.

    In several of these discussions those upset at the chant insisted they come from rightwing extremists, but the fact is that such chants seem to have originated on a number of college campuses -- not exactly hotbeds of conservatism. Moreover, songs based upon "Let's Go Brandon" are now topping the lists as most popular song -- including rap. Again, not a bastion of conservatism if the industry's reaction to Kayne West is any indication.

    Rapper Bryson Gray's song "Let's Go Brandon " is number one on iTunes (IIRC, Apple as well), beating out pop music superstar Adele’s latest release. And at #3 is another "Let's Go Brandon" song.

    The face of right wing extremism today

    In fact 4 out of the 5 top rap/hip-hop songs are titled "Let's Go Brandon"

    Right wing extremism is sure different that what I imagined


    It should be noted that both YouTube and Instagram have banned Gray's song. YouTube claims for disseminating "medical misinformation" -- in a song . I'm sure we can expect other songs like Melissa Manchester’s “Don’t Cry Out Loud” where she tells people to bottle up and suppress all of their emotions

    Don’t cry out loud
    Just keep it inside, learn how to hide your feelings
    Fly high and proud
    And if you should fall, remember you almost had it all


    and numerous other songs with questionable medical advice to start disappearing from YouTube any day now.

    Yeah, I'm not holding my breath either.

    In any case, it is still getting out there for everyone to see



    Even by those too senile to realize that
    they are being mocked

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Well, yeah, but Trump deserved it, so it's completely different.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

      So is youtube going to ban all songs about drugs? That would be a pretty empty music library.

        I think we've learned not to expect even a pretense of consistency.

          Well that didn't take long....

          Commentator for CNN and MSNBC says ‘Let’s go, Brandon’ is the MAGA version of ‘Sieg Heil’

            So, a Southwest Airlines pilot is in trouble for saying that phrase.

            A Southwest pilot is under investigation for the divisive phrase 'Let's go, Brandon'

            The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

                Yeah, there's no way liberals would be disrespectful of the president.

                  Pretty much the opposite. Sieg Heil was praising Hitler. Let's Go Brandon is NOT praising Biden.

                    Depends on how you look at it...

                      ABBA recently tried a comeback after 40 years, but it flopped. Maybe they should have made a Brandon release instead.

                        Not to mention that it was a liberal news reporter who coined the phrase. So it all goes back to the left.

                          The liberals don't seem to get the fact that this is mocking THE MEDIA as much, if not more, than Biden.

                            I don't think the liberals get very much of anything.
