Woke NASCAR having second thoughts about “Let’s Go Brandon” sponsorship of driver Brandon Brown

The following contains editorial content which is the opinion of the writer, a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today. 

DAYTONA BEACH, FL- Apparently, NASCAR hasn’t learned anything from Major League Baseball, the NBA, or the NFL.

The “major league” of motorsports, which already sacrificed a good deal of its fan base when it decided to abandon its roots and go Hollywood, may have just stepped in it again.

Some 18 months after NASCAR fell for the Bubba Wallace “noose” hoax, it is once again letting political correctness run amuck.

On December 26, the motorsports giant approved a deal for Brandon Brown, of “Let’s Go Brandon” fame, with a company called LGBcoin, a cryptocurrency company, according to Breitbart.

Of course, the “LGB” in LGBcoin ostensibly stands for “Let’s Go Brandon,” a derogatory term used in place of “Fuck Joe Biden.”

If you’ve been sleeping under a rock, we’ll explain that shortly.

Now, however after leftists got their panties in a bunch, NASCAR is saying the deal “needs to be reviewed at a higher level,” team spokesman Max Marcucci said, according to CNN, with the letter from NASCAR apologizing for the “confusion and miscommunication.”

Just last month, LGBcoin issued a statement announcing the new deal:

“We are thrilled to partner with Brandonbilt Motorsports and Brandon Brown for the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series season,” said James Koutoulas, LGBcoin HODLer and founder of Typhoon Capital Management in his announcement.

“Brandon is not only an incredibly talented driver, but also a thoughtful individual wise beyond his years.

His commitment and singular focus on his profession is inspiring and his personal story is one that we can all be proud of—an American story of success and perseverance. Brandon is truly America’s Driver.

“We are proud to support Brandon this season, to help him continue his American dream,” Koutoulas added. “If we do our job right, when you think of us, and you hear, ‘Let’s Go, Brandon,’ you’ll think and feel, ‘Let’s Go America.’”

Brown too tweeted about the new sponsorship arrangement and showed off the proposed paint scheme of the new ride, with the number 68.

There was no reason to believe there was any type of issue with the arrangement, with Fox Business reporting that the NASCAR approval letter last month was “unambiguous,” saying, “The sponsors are approved.”

Ah, but that was likely before the “wokesters” got involved. Marcucci says now that the sudden about face “runs counter to facts of the situation.”

So what exactly is “Let’s Go Brandon?” Well it’s basically a saying that made NBC Sports motorsports reporter Kelli Stavast famous…or infamous.

Lasts October, Brandon Brown earned his first career NASCAR victory at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama…the same place where the infamous “non-noose” incident involving driver Bubba Wallace took place ironically.

While being interviewed by Stavast, the NASCAR crowd began to serenade with a “Fuck Joe Biden” chant, indicating how much the 46th president is apparently “loved and admired” by race fans.

In a display of being a complete shill for the Biden administration and old Sleepy Joe himself, or being deaf, Stavast claimed the crowd…which was clearly saying “Fuck Joe Biden”…was instead saying “Let’s Go Brandon.”

The saying immediately became a classic, soon be chanted in stadiums across the country during college football and NFL games.

Now, Marcucci is claiming that NASCAR’s hedging on the deal “runs counter to facts of the situation.”

That of course has triggered the leftists, who have somehow turned the saying, which is a “cleaner” version of the FJB chant, but which clearly sends the same message, into some kind of white supremacist, insurrectionist, January 6 screed.

And clearly somebody got to NASCAR. Like it or not, motorsports are very popular in states where Joe Biden is viewed as something akin to the plague, or perhaps a human pandemic…think the human form of the coronavirus, because thus far, everything he’s touched has turned into garbage.

NASCAR is popular primarily in the South and the Midwest, not along the coasts where the liberals (and Biden voters) live.

At one time, tickets to NASCAR races were nearly impossible to get, with the night race in Bristol, Tennessee having a two-year waiting list. Other tracks such as Daytona and Talladega were also a tough ticket to get. Not anymore.

NASCAR’s downfall started in part after the death of racing legend Dale Earnhardt over twenty years ago. It was still full of stars, such as Jeff Gordon, Rusty Wallace, Tony Stewart, and Jimmy Johnson.

But then NASCAR decided to go Hollywood, pushing races in places like California, while abandoning its roots. Tracks such as North Wilkesboro and Rockingham, North Carolina closed.

Other tracks which used to host premier events were put on the back burner, some being reduced to only one race.

Then of course NASCAR started a confusing playoff system, then instead of having a straight out 400 or 500 mile race broke it down into stages. All of this served to get interest from casual fans, while turning off its base.

Moves such as this recent one by NASCAR could signal the death knell for the sport. Remember, get woke, go broke.

The Bubba Wallace fiasco from a couple of years back, with the whole fake “noose in the garage” thing, a hoax by the way which Wallace continues to push apparently with NASCAR’s blessing, also turned off many long-time fans.

“Let’s go Brandon?” How about “Let’s go NASCAR!”

DIG DEEPER

TALLADEGA, AL- Eighty-million votes, huh?

A new phenomenon has taken hold in the country over the past month or so where our fearless “leader” has been serenaded at stadiums across the country (along with a concert venue or two) with terms of “endearment” from fans.

This has put the media in a bit of a quandary as they try to cover for the “popularity” of our demented “commander in chief.” That brings us to Sunday and the NASCAR race at Talladega International Speedway in Alabama.

According to the Post Millennial, during a post-race interview, NBC sports “reporter” Kelli Stavast was interviewing the NASCAR Xfinity Series race winner Brandon Brown. It was Brown’s first series win.

Breitbart reported that as she was speaking to Brown, the all-too-familiar chant began in the grandstands, “F*ck Joe Biden!” What was Stavast to do? The chant was clear as a bell.

Cover for the demented Biden of course, claiming the crowd was chanting “Let’s go Brandon!”

“Brandon, you also told me,” Stavast was saying while the crowd chanted in the background. “As you can hear the chants from the crowd…” she continued, then added that the crowd was saying, “Let’s go Brandon.”

Clearly Stavast either has hearing issues or she was simply trying to cover for what was clearly the displeasure of the Talladega crowd toward Biden.

NASCAR also (not surprisingly) tried to cover for 46. Fox News reported that the interview was initially posted to NASCAR’s social media accounts. However the video oddly disappeared after it started to go viral with people retweeting it, many focusing on Stavast’s absurd claim that the chants were in support of Brown.

Fox News reached out to NASCAR to find out why the interview post was removed, however didn’t receive a response.

The race was called with five laps remaining due to poor visibility as darkness descended upon the Alabama superspeedway.

The new favorite chant among sports fans has gone viral over the past few weeks as the American people, in particular the middle-class fans and even younger people who attend sporting events apparently tire of Biden’s draconian policies.

 

 

As the Post Millennial reports, the chant has been particularly visible at college football games, while things got even more bizarre when former President Trump was greeted by cheers at a boxing match while the crowd chanted “F*ck Joe Biden!”

On Sunday, it also appeared at MetLife Stadium in metro New York during the Jets game:

 

 

In an even more bizarre scene out of New York City, Black Lives Matter and Trump supporters apparently gathered together to not only slam Biden but also the feckless mayor of New York Bill de Blasio: 

 

 

Finally, as fans left a Mets/Yankees game, the same could be heard:

 

 

Meanwhile, America’s (fraudulent) doctor, Anthony Fauci railed against those college football fans for not wearing face diapers, claiming it will not help contain a virus with over a 99% survival rate.

“Big crowds, in stadiums,” CNN’s anchor said.

“Not clear who was required to be vaccinated, recommendations for masks, but it as you can see in these pictures, folks just weren’t doing it. Is this kind of behavior going to get us on the other side of this? Or if we keep doing this, are we going to be kind of stuck in outbreak mode?” he asked Fraudulent Fauci.

“Well we could be stuck in outbreak mode,” Fauci said, “and that’s why I think what you’re going to be seeing in addition to the fact that we’re, people are getting voluntarily vaccinated now on a more and more basis. As you’ve said, we’ve been a couple of days even over a million per day.”

Meanwhile, the most “popularly elected” president in American history is quickly learning what a majority of the American people think of him and his socialist policies.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, below is our report about a Florida diner that suggested Biden supporters “eat elsewhere.” 

DIG DEEPER

DEBARY, FL – The Florida diner that gained national attention after posting a sign asking President Biden supporters to eat somewhere else wound up experiencing a surge in business following the news coverage.

So much so, that the restaurant had to close temporarily because they didn’t have enough food to accommodate the flood of orders.

It was certainly a dicey move for the DeBary Diner when the owner, Angie Ugarte, placed a sign outside of her diner telling President Biden supporters to take their business elsewhere.

The sign of course attracted mixed responses, with some issuing criticisms of the divisiveness of the sign and others ardently supporting the message from the sign.

But apparently business came flooding in, which caused Ugarte to have to temporarily close down the diner on September 2nd due to the massive influx of orders:

“I’ve gotten so many people calling me from all over the world, from Europe, trying to purchase meals for veterans, which I still haven’t been able to organize. I think that the veterans will be fed for the rest of the year at the rate I’m getting donations.”

Rod Phillips, a decorated Vietnam veteran is among those who supported Ugarte’s sign posted outside of the restaurant, saying the following about him and other community members showing up to lend their support to her establishment:

“All these people said, ‘We’ve got to come over here and thank Angie.’ We wanted to come over and thank you. Being a Vietnam veteran and combat-wounded, I don’t wish war on anybody. But there is a proper time and place to get out of there.”

Obviously, Ugarte was not the recipient of solely warm wishes and support, saying she’d received some “death threats and bomb threats” in relation to her posted sign, but said that the good has heavily outweighed the bad.

The restaurant was able to reopen on September 3rd, according to reports.

Earlier in September, we at Law Enforcement Today covered the story of Ugarte’s sign posted outside of her restaurant. Here’s that previous report.

_

DEBARY, FL – The owner of a diner in DeBary, Florida, is making some waves over a recent sign posted outside of her restaurant that tells potential customers that if they “voted for and continue to support” President Biden then they should take their “business elsewhere”.

Angie Ugarte, the owner of DeBary Diner, posted a sign outside of her restaurant in late August that presents some very strong opinions regarding the current president and also her not wanting to have customers that currently support President Biden patronize her establishment.

The sign reads as follows:

“If you voted for and continue to support and stand behind the worthless, inept and corrupt administration currently inhabiting the White House that is complicit in the death of our servicemen and women in Afghanistan, please take your business elsewhere. God bless American and God bless our soldiers”

When speaking with local news outlet FOX 35, Ugarte stated the following about what prompted her to place the sign outside the restaurant:

“It was the only thing I felt like I could do…I was just angry. I was just let down. I felt like one of those mothers, or wives, or sisters who were gonna get that knock on the door.”

Ugarte was referencing the 13 fallen soldiers who recently died in Kabul due to a suicide bombing carried out by ISIS-K. She’s been running the DeBary Diner for roughly five years and says that many of her regular customers are veterans.

Ugarte feels as though President Biden is to blame for the soldiers that recently passed in Kabul. Based upon her opinions on the matter, Ugarte says she doesn’t want to “be associated” with anyone who stands behind the current administration:

“If you really, really still stand behind what’s allowed this to happen and the way it happened – which was unnecessary then I really don’t want to be associated with you in any way and I certainly don’t want your business.”

The restaurant owner says that overall, the sign seems to be effective with respect to her desired outcome, saying the following:

“I’ve had people come to the door and look at it and turn around and walk away. And I’ve had people come into the kitchen while I’m cooking and say, ‘Hey, I love your sign’.”

Of course, after the news broke out online, commenters on Twitter were boasting of their outrage saying how the business won’t see a dime from them – which is ironically, what the business owner si aiming to achieve.

One Twitter user wrote:

“I like when a business lets me know who they support. Makes it easy to know who gets my $$. And, in this case, they don’t.”

Other commenters posted their support for the restaurant, with one Twitter user writing:

“I wish I could go there to eat. I would wear my shirt that says ‘Don’t blame me, I voted Trump’.”

While this move certainly has the propensity to adversely affect Ugarte’s bottom line, it appears that it is something she’s willing to sacrifice in order to stay true to her morals on the matter. Ugarte says that one every American has been extricated from Afghanistan, she’ll be taking down the sign.

Missouri gun shop refuses to sell weapons, ammo to Biden supporters: “Sorry for the inconvenience.”

(Originally published January 25th, 2021)

JEFFERSON CITY, MO– With many on the right fearing the fact that President Joe Biden’s proposed gun agenda will all but do away with the Second Amendment, the left is now complaining that those very same Second Amendment businesses are discriminating against them. 

Those who support President Biden are angry that a conservative gun shop has taken to social media to claim they will not be selling to them. 

Immediately following Joe Biden’s inauguration, Trigger Firearms & Reloading, in Jefferson City, Missouri, published a statement indicating the company will no longer sell munitions or firearms to his supporters, National File reported.

The owner of Trigger Firearms & Reloading posted his message on Facebook, saying:

“We don’t have guns or ammo for Biden supporters,” 

It went on to say:

“Sorry for the inconvenience.”

As expected, this post drew many comments from both the left and the right. One commenter, listed as Joe Shockley, who claimed to be a wealthy Democrat living in Missouri felt very insulted by the post, and commented:

I had a few grand to spend on a small backup to my Springfield XD and some other gear and ammo,”

He continued:

“Good to know you don’t want my money because I don’t want a fake billionaire reality tv star as my president.”

Another person to comment, who calls themselves, Chris Brown was clearly angry, but took a more humorous approach saying:

“That’s OK. Some of us Liberals have guns that are older than that peach fuzz you call a beard.”

Some commenters appreciated the humor in refusing to sell guns to Biden supporters, who for quite some time have supported taking guns and ammunition away from Americans.

One commenter posted:

“Bad news, you’ve lost the business of people that live in California and Michigan. How will you ever survive?”

Another individual chimed in, saying:

Funny all these crying Liberals on here, but to set the record straight. I have never heard of a Gun Business going bankrupt, from a Liberal boycott, however when Conservatives Boycott something they are done,” 

National File reported that Austin Petersen, a libertarian-leaning Republican who previously ran for U.S. Senate in Missouri, celebrated the decision on Twitter.

Petersen wrote:

“My local gun shop announced last night that they do not have any guns or ammunition available for Biden supporters,” 

He continued:

“The comment section of howling leftists is like delicious hot apple pie with ice cream.”

The most confusing part about this situation, is why Democrats feel slighted at all.

When social media outlets banned former President Donald Trump, liberal Democrats cheered and applauded the media outlets for “doing the right thing”, however, a gun owner put a ban on selling to Biden supporters, and all of a sudden secluding people is not alright.
