EXPLAINING “LET’S GO BRANDON” FOR OVERSEAS READERS

biden blustering like a fool

Blustering demagogue

Here at Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog I often hear from overseas readers requesting clarification on some of the obscure in-jokes of America’s political culture. This time around it’s regarding why “Let’s go Brandon!” is the ultimate up yours to corrupt Joe Biden and to his corporate media sycophants.

Several weeks ago “Fuck Joe Biden” became the frequently heard roar of the crowds at college football games and then spread to other events, because, well, it’s no secret that Joe Biden is corrupt, demented, blood soaked and much worse. At a recent NASCAR event, Brandon Brown won the race and as he was being interviewed the stands were roaring with the chant of “Fuck Joe Biden!”

Let’s go Brandon has even been set to music and became a hit on iTunes and elsewhere. Sales of “Let’s go Brandon!” t-shirts and other merchandise have gone through the roof. Online videos expressing the meme have been piling up, like the “exercise” video below, part of the Let’s go Brandon challenge:

And hey …

Maybe Kelli should have instead gone with “They’re not saying Fuck Joe Biden, they’re saying “BOO-urns.”

  1. Seriously! The media blankwashed it so obviously?? Shame on them!

  2. Several weeks ago “Fuck Joe Biden” became the frequently heard roar of the crowds at college football games and then spread to other events, because, well, it’s no secret that Joe Biden is corrupt, demented, blood soaked and much worse.

    Surely you could have gone into a little more detail for the sake of your overseas readers.

    “Let’s Go Brandon.” BOO-urns. Fall in the same camp. A rose by any other name is still a rose.

    Alternate spelling of boo urns. Exclamation. A cheer for The Simpsons character Montgomery Burns. Often used incorrectly by Canadians to suggest disproval of anything, rather than approval of Burns. Obviously, “boo” and “Boo-urns” are two different and mutually exclusive words.

    I’m all for free speech but would hate to explain the F-word to a six year old. But here we are.

    Given that real news out does the satire, I don’t see how The Onion and Babylon Bee come up with material. Though things are so screwed up, some of these ‘satire’ stories get passed off as real news on occasion.
