Recently it’s come to my attention that “Let’s Go Brandon” is a euphemism for “Fuck Joe Biden,” and conservatives are all delighting in it. One Southwest Airline pilot apparently signed of his flight with it, which he is apparently living to regret.
So how did we get here?
Well, back on October 2, 2021, a kid named Brandon Brown won a Nascar race at the speedward in Taladega Superspeedeway in Lincoln, Alabama, and as the kid was being interviewed by NBC reporter Kelli Stavast, the crowd went into a boisterous chant of “Fuck Joe Biden!” She generously reinterpreted it for the viewing audience as “Let’s Go Brandon!”
It does beg the question why people in Alabama want to fuck Joe Biden. What has he done to them besides working as hard as he can to eradicate the Covid pandemic and to increase infrastructure spending and the safety net for people who have been left behind by the current economy.
It’s not like he’s trying to tear the country apart with racial hatred, as his predecessor had done.
As it is, Joe Biden is stuck with two very recalcitrant Democrats who keep raining on his parade: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, and Arizona Senator and former Green party candidate Kyrsten Sinema about whom we can only say that nobody knows what the hell she wants.
But sure, let’s fuck Joe Biden because, after all, he’s responsible for everyone else’s insanity.
