Oh jeeez, so now you can't even own up to it?  Let me guess, you just like the cadence of the phrase? or you have a good buddy with motivational issues named brandon and this is your crusade to get him off the couch?  Why the fear of using the actual words? Do you think you're getting away with something?
 
You really are clueless or so flipping out of touch and assume everything is rooted in codes or secret conspiracy theories.

As Zep went and posted the link, it tells most of the story.  I have been aware of the spontaneous chant of Fuck Joe Biden since it first happened at football games back in September, because I do watch Fox News.  They have been covering the chants, even putting montages of them together.  No one else was covering it or if they did they tried to tamp it down.

So fast forward to the NASCAR post race interview on NBC.  You do know that Fox has the first half of the race season and NBC has the second half right ?  Most likely not since NASCAR and the people associated with it are beneath you.   That said, NBC is a protector of Biden and nearly everyone who works there is dedicated to protecting him.  So when the chant broke out during the interview on live TV, the woman doing the interview said the crowd was chanting Let's Go Brandon to celebrate his victory trying to ignore and cover up the obvious.  It was a display of how much the media shills for and protects Biden.  And for that reason, it has taken on its own life going forward.

But since you need help in understanding how the unwashed think I'll take this a little further.  You thought it only slams Biden.  Wrong.  It has become a meme that slams both Biden and his media protectors all in one nice little package that cannot be censored, so far.  At least that is what it means to those who use it.  You may not agree with my explanation, but do so at your own risk because whether you like it or not, this is its actual meaning.

So with that, everything you said about me in response to my question illustrates one of two things.  You don't understand the obvious or you are simply outright trolling me.

With that in closing ... Let's Go Islander !!!!

I don't understand the rush to put together this completely partisan spending bill...oh i forgot, next Nov mid-term elections.
But even democratic voters don't seem particularly enthralled by a big spending bill, at a time when the economy is recovering.
Kinda like Trumps tax cuts a few years back, when the economy was doing well. 
Some of this spending is a good idea, but a lot of it's just more spending.

Biden's plan 'doesn't hang together,' GOP economist says

A key Democratic selling point of the new Build Back Better framework announced Thursday is that it’s fiscally responsible.

“It’s fully paid for,” President Biden declared in a press briefing about the plan. “Over the next 10 years, it will not add to the deficit at all.”

The White House summary of the bill goes even further and suggests the bill will actually reduce the deficit. On the spending side of the ledger, the president is pushing for $1.75 trillion in new spending offset by “up to a total of” $1.995 trillion in new revenue coming from things like new taxes and new funding for the IRS to chase down delinquent taxpayers.

But Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the American Action Forum and former top economic advisor to former President George W. Bush and Sen. John McCain, says that what’s on paper and what is likely to actually transpire over the coming decade are likely to be two very different things.

“It doesn't hang together fiscally,” he told Yahoo Finance.

He said Democrats have “tried to reduce the top-line costs of the bill by front-loading the spending” noting as one example that the bill a one year extension of the expanded child tax credit followed by the overall bill being paid for over 10 years.

It's the kind of code that one can drop into say an airport or supermarket PA system....you know....."Will Lesgo Brandon please come to the information desk? The rest of your party is waiting for you."
Or an 11 year old can say into the PA system or on TV at a racetrack..."Gentlemen, start your engines! Let's go, Brandon!"
Or even a Congressman can add to the end of a speech, as in "With that, I yield back, and Let's go, Brandon!"

I suppose it a way that ordinary people can say what they really feel on YouTube or Twitter.
Maybe from that point of view, it's a code, yes.

Eh, what a bunch of tripe.   But on the bolded you have me genuinely confused. You and a lot of other people seem to think it's getting a big one over on everyone to use a well understood code instead of just saying Fuck Joe Biden - Why?  We know you aren't sensitive about the word Fuck you used it liberally on the 'fuck your feelings' t-shirts and we know you aren't shy about disparaging Biden, so why the need for a code?

The financial community certainly mentions the costs, which went up after the dodd-frank act...a piece legislation following the great recession meant to protect the public, but overly burdensome...and then as we always do, parts of what were effective were rolled back a few years without really reducing the burden.

You would think that the Republicans would be super happy.

No VAT.   

No increase in fuel taxes.

More deficit-financed expenditure increases.    That in particular has to appeal to the Marxist-Keynesians in the Republican party.


The current impasse reminds of former prime minister Stephan Harper lamenting not so long ago how it was far more difficult for US federal politicians to get anything done than it was for him as prime minister to get stuff done with a minority government.
