A guest on CNN claimed Sunday that chanting “Let’s Go Brandon” is an endorsement of “insurrection” against Joe Biden.
The Atlantic senior editor Ron Brownstein slammed the father who got Biden to say “Let’s Go Brandon” on Friday, calling his prank call “ungracious”, “juvenile”, and “reprehensible,” and claiming the chant isn’t about criticizing Biden’s policy failures, but fomenting a coup against him.
“But I don’t think it’s fundamentally about incivility. I think it is fundamentally about insurrection,” Brownstein told the CNN panel.

“I don’t know the individual, but the whole ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ kind of motif is a reflection of the view – two-thirds of the Republican base driven by Trump’s false claims and the big lie that Biden is an illegitimate president.”
“And it reflects as well the findings in multiple polls…that a majority of Republicans now say ‘the American way of life is disappearing so fast from a traditional way of life that we may have to use force to save it,’” Brownstein continued.
“This is a manifestation not just of incivility, but of the fundamental view of the illegitimacy and the ominous shores that we’re kind of sailing toward very quickly in 2022 and especially 2024,” he added.
Brownstein also falsely claimed the fact that more people died of COVID under Biden than under Trump was “fake news.”
This comes after a former Oregon police officer named Jared Schmeck got Joe Biden to say “Let’s Go Brandon” – a euphemism for “F*ck Joe Biden” – during a Christmas phone call with children and parents on Christmas Eve.
Schmeck told local media that he’s received “vague but threatening” phone calls since trolling Biden, but still “stood 100% behind what I did and what I said.”
“There’s no animosity or anything like that. It was merely just an innocent jest to also express my God-given right to express my frustrations in a joking manner,” he said.
Many on social media highlighted the left’s hypocrisy over the issue given many prominent figures in Hollywood and the media routinely called for outright violence against former President Trump during his term.

Las Vegas Shooter… Nothing
Nashville Bombing… Nothing
Waukesha Massacre.. Nothing
“Let’s Go Brandon” at Christmas…. Full force of the Corporate Media will seek him out and destroy every aspect of his life…

Now the Left is upset at the guy that “disrespected” Joe Biden by saying “lets go Brandon”. If he had said “Eff Trump” instead, he’d be on Joy Reid, Don Lemon, Anderson Cooper, Morning Joe, The View, and a host of other programs celebrated as a hero.
