Found this after I saw it trend on Twitter with Democrats using it to praise Biden-admin doings (I'd not seen the phrase before):
https://apnews.com/article/lets-go-brandon-what-does-it-mean-republicans-joe-biden-ab13db212067928455a3dba07756a160

EDIT:
Correction - the trending phrase was #ThankYouBrandon

I no longer have constant Internet access, so you won't be seeing quite as much of me.

To be fair, this phrase without the euphemisms, was loudly chanted by many (respectable?) individuals on the flip side for the last 4 years. Neither is better than the other, but at least kids don't have to here the word in this case.

This chant started at a redneck (mostly racist) event. It is now being used just like a dog whistle. We know exactly what it means. Anyone who uses it is saying the vulgar version.

What phrase you talking about for the last admin?

Whoah. Not commenting on this being right or wrong, although regardless it's protected by 1A. Calling an event "mostly racist" is an extremely bold move that I believe you would call many out for doing. I know nothing of the event. Secondly, I deciding what it's being used for is completely up to you but hold no water unless you can back it up. I've seen no use for it other than to express your disapproval for the current admin. 3rd, I personally have only heard the non vulgar version, aside from a few incidents, but I do need to get out more ;D  Lastly, the last 4 years I've heard countless celebrities, and public figures use the actual phrase f**k (Donald) Trump. Dinero literally said it at an award event publicly. Right or wrong, both sides are protected by 1A, but I don't remember anyone speaking up when the actual F word was being used.

I am speaking from experience from going to NASCAR events.
You act as if I called them racist, anti-Semite, homophonic, toothless, inbreed morons.  :)

Now yes many on the left had said F Trump. They are wrong for doing that. What I am asking is there a phrase they hid behind like cowards that is being done now with Brandon?

ETA: Don't think I ever said F Trump but have labeled him a scumbag which seems over the top to some.

Nobody should think they are avoiding the vulgarity by using this phrase to allude to it.

It's nearly as bad to use a euphemism as it is to use the actual word.
This particular one is used not because many people want a euphemism, but because it points out the generic media spin on things

Hey, you're free to call them what you'd like, I just didn't think one person would have the information to determine an entire event is racist, but I'll take your word for it I have no personal knowledge. Not particularly relevant to this conversation regardless.


I'm not sure the point your trying to make here, but it seems it's presumptuous and likely incorrect to some degree. We agree both sides have cursed out the president but one side preferred to do so as individuals from a public using an actual vulgarity, and another side is using an innuendo derived from a misunderstanding to say the same thing minus the actual vulgarity. I'm not sure what is cowardly about that, it seems you are inserting assumption and emotion into this.


I never said you did, nor would I as I don't recall you ever saying that, and if you did, you'd be free to do so.


Again, neither party is right, but you seem to be making one side more wrong for doing what seems to be less than the other. I don't care what you're innuendo is, if my kids are watching NASCAR, the golden globes, or anything else, I'd rather they not here the F word regardless of what the replacement means.

Well, they are avoiding using the vulgarity. The implication may be the same, but I don't care if you say "let's go brandon" in front of my kids, they are clueless. If you say F biden/brandon/trump in front of my kids, I'll take a stance.

This is a better articulated way of saying what i was trying to (not my strong point). I don't think many realize how the phrase came about and why it's being used. Does that take away from what it is? No, but it definitely takes away from what it isn't (as it should).

Can you find me a DDF source where you denounced then as well?  Or only when it's against our Sleeper in Chief do you get all excited about it?

I think it's a funny play on words, From a funny mistake and I'm enjoying the memes. Even if that word is not part of my vocabulary

That's actually exactly what they are doing. It might still be inappropriate but it certainly isn't as vulgar as the original.

The original chant started at college football games, not nascar. All that happened at Nascar was that the reporter thought that they were says "Let's go Brandon" (because the guy who won the race was named Brandon.)

She knew exactly what they were saying and even chuckled about it.

These cowards want to say exactly what the chant was without owning it. The spin here is disgusting to say the least.

When Trump was sick with covid I stated in no certain terms anyone that wished him ill will was a POS. You can have civil political discussions only if you are able to see both sides. Unfortunately very few here are able to do that.
