ATHENS, GA – “Let’s go Brandon” has become a common phrase and rallying cry for those that do not like Joe Biden. The saying, the meme, and now a banner is becoming commonplace at many different public events, like the Georgia versus Missouri college football game.

Fans watching the football game on November 6th were greeted by a large banner, being flown over the crowd, with the now infamous saying.
Following the saying was an advertisement for a social media platform that says it was “founded on the principles of free speech, independent thought and rejecting political censorship and ‘cancel culture.’”
For those of you that have not kept up with the latest social trends, and therefore may not be aware of the saying, let us educate you for a moment. The saying was born at a NASCAR Xfinity race after driver Brandon Brown had won.
As a reporter, Kelli Stavast was interviewing Brown on his win, the crowd can be heard in the background chanting “F… Joe Biden.” For whatever reason, Stavast declared on the live interview that the crowd was actually chanting, ‘Let’s go, Brandon,’ in his honor, and like that, the social media phrase was born.
Since ‘Let’s go, Brandon,’ has become popular, the phrase is showing up at different venues throughout the nation. Even though the phrase has significant popularity, it is strange how the mainstream media has not done many reports on it.

David Hookstead, the sports and entertainment editor for Daily Caller, pointed out this glaring fact when he said:
“The media might want to ignore the massive movement taking over the sports world, but I won’t. You can’t sit through a college football Saturday without hearing a ‘F**k Joe Biden’ or ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ chant.”
Hookstead then tweeted about the issue:
“How many “F**k Joe Biden” chants are we going to hear today during college football games?
“Remember, the media wants you to believe fans are just chanting “Let’s go Brandon,” but as I talked about with @DonaldJTrumpJr, the chants are here to stay.”
Beyond the sports arena, there are also at least three different rappers who have made hit songs talking about their issues with President Biden. Issues and concerns brought up in the rap songs range from China to the COVID vaccine.

There are also reports of an airline pilot using the phrase over the intercom system in the plane or all of his passengers to hear. Apparently, there was at least one person on the flight that took offense and filed a complaint (shocker, an Associated Press reporter).
Southwest Airlines, who is conducting an investigation, notes:
“Southwest does not condone Employees sharing their personal political opinions while on the job. Southwest is conducting an internal investigation into the recently reported event and will address the situation directly with any Employee involved while continuing to remind all Employees that the public expression of personal opinions while on duty is unacceptable.”
It’s worth noting that Southwest allows employees to wear Black Lives Matter masks.
While the use of the phrase currently has widespread popularity, the mainstream media, specifically CNN, believes that this is just a passing phase and is only really used as a “secret handshake” to identify other members of a secret tribe.
Chris Cillizza wrote:
“The rapid rise in popularity of the phrase amounts to a sort of verbal secret handshake, a way for those deeply opposed to Joe Biden’s presidency to identify other members of their tribe….
This-like so many other politically themed mems and internet ephemera…will almost certainly fade as rapidly as it has become ubiquitous…But, for now, “Let’s go Brandon” is having its moment.”

NEW YORK, NY –While it is not unusual for a rap song to hit number one on any chart, it is very unusual for that rap song to be political. And yet, here we are in 2021 when a rap song has hit number one on iTunes titled, ‘Let’s go Brandon.’
For those that do not know, the phrase ‘Let’s go Brandon’ was born after a NASCAR event in which driver Brandon Brown was being interviewed by NBC.
As the reporter was interviewing Brown, the crowd in the background could be heard chanting “F*** Joe Biden.” When the interviewer heard this, for whatever reason, she said that the crowd was shouting, “Let’s go Brandon.”
And like that, a social media frenzy started.
Shortly after the phrase hit social media stardom, rappers Bryson Gray, Tyson James, and Chandler Crump rapped a song that quickly rose to the top of the charts. In the song, Gray, who is seen wearing an “Impeach Biden” shirt and a Make America Great Again hat, speaks about the COVID vaccine mandates as well as gun rights. In the rap, Gray says:
“When you ask questions, they start banning.”
Gray, James, and Crump were not the only rappers to cash in on the ‘Let’s go Brandon’ phrase.
Rapper Loza Alexander also released his version of the ‘Let’s go Brandon’ social media hit. In his song, he uses the infamous clip in which the phrase was born. Alexander raps:
“Tried to cover up, but tell the people, ‘Go Brandon…But we know what they sayin,’ though. You can hear the chant in every post…Don’t nobody want this commie ‘cause we not in China.”
Both versions of this song mentioned above rose to iTunes stardom and at one point were in the number one and two spots on the charts. Something that should cause concern when it comes to the Democratic base.
Democrats have long aligned themselves in many fashions with the minority population.
Even President Joe Biden, when he was running for the presidency, made this known when he made a statement during an interview, “I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Democratic leaders have alleged over the years that their party is the one that is for anyone who is a minority in the country. They claim to pass agendas that are designed to enhance minorities’ rights and claim that Republicans attempt to pass agendas that would limit them.
Now, with two popular rap songs coming out that are seemingly against President Biden and his agenda, the question Democrats should be asking themselves is are these rappers simply cashing in on a phrase, or do they believe it? Moreover, do those people that have caused these songs to get the number one spot on iTunes believe it?
Maybe that’s why YouTube removed the video of Gray’s version of ‘Let’s go Brandon.’ According to Gray:
“YouTube has banned ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ son from YouTube due to ‘medical information.’ What medical misinformation is in the song? Whoa.”
Gray then shared snapshots that YouTube sent to him saying that his channel “now has 1 active strike.’ The reason YouTube gave for the strike? Medical misinformation:
“YouTube doesn’t allow claims about COVID-19 vaccinations that contradict expert consensus from local health authorities or the World Health Organization (WHO).”
The lines in Gray’s version of the song that apparently speak misinformation, according to YouTube, is:
“The various shots the people are getting now cover that…They’re, They’re, they’re okay. You’re not gonna, you’re not gonna get COVID if you have these vaccinations…Biden said the jab stop the spread, it was lies (I remember)…If you ask questions ‘bout the vax, then they gonna ban us.”
Even though some social media sites have been the ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ songs, it did nothing to stop their popularity, especially when they top very famous singers like Adele. Thankfully, YouTube has reversed their decision and now is allowing the video on their platform.
