It was ok for a picture of Kathy griffin to stand with a decapitated head of our president but “let’s go Brandon” is a big deal?? Ok whatever…

Journalist Furious After Hearing Pilot’s Message to Biden Broadcast Over the Intercom

When a Southwest Airlines pilot said ‘Let’s go Brandon’ to his passengers, liberals went into a tailspin of anger.

Liberal sensibilities were vibrating with anger after a Southwest Airlines pilot used a conservative phrase over the plane’s loudspeaker on Friday.

“We’re heading east at about 107 or 108 mph,” the pilot said, according to a clip of the incident caught on TikTok. “Clear visibility, mostly clear skies, 77 degrees. Thanks for coming out and flying Southwest Airlines. Welcome aboard, and remember let’s go Brandon.”

Associated Press reporter Colleen Long was on the Houston-Albuquerque flight and included the comment in a story that equated the use of the phrase with a comment that crosses the line and insults the president.

The phrase “let’s go Brandon” became a catchphrase for liberalism trying to censor reality when an NBC reporter was interviewing NASCAR driver Brandon Brown. During the interview, the crowd was chanting “f*** Joe Biden” in the background. The reporter insisted the chant was “Let’s go Brandon!” according to Fox News.

But in Long’s spin, “The line has become conservative code for something far more vulgar: ‘F*** Joe Biden.’ It’s all the rage among Republicans wanting to prove their conservative credentials, a not-so-secret handshake that signals they’re in sync with the party’s base.”

In response to this threat to liberal orthodoxy making its way into the mainstream, social media users vented their outrage that a pilot tried to use a bit of political humor from the cockpit.

Are liberals out of touch with the rest of America?

(Let’s Go Brandon was cringe less than a week after the meme started but these hyperventilating blue check journos have pretty much now guaranteed that we’ll be hearing it at the SuperBowl.)

Southwest Airlines said it “takes pride in providing a welcoming, comfortable, and respectful environment for the millions of customers who fly with the airline each year and behavior from any individual that is divisive or offensive will not be tolerated,” according to the New York Post.

Long called the phrase “coded crudity” in her screed for AP.

She quoted Jim Innocenzi, who crafts ads for Republicans, as calling the phrase “hilarious.”

“Unless you are living in a cave, you know what it means,” he said. “But it’s done with a little bit of a class. And if you object and are taking it too seriously, go away.”



The best of…

But I thought progressives really believed in putting your politics in people’s faces all the time?
If anyone has a strong argument for saying #letsgobrandon, it’s the Americans left behind in Afghanistan.
This Southwest obsession has already surpassed liberals interest in the Loudoun county story by a factor of 100.
Did that woman seriously liken not liking Biden (i.e. saying “Let’s go, Brandon”) to being a terrorist supporter? These people are deranged. They’ve gone from everyone they don’t like being a racist to everyone they don’t like being a terrorist.
How lovely to see MSM react spastic to their own lies. That NBC fakenews reporter who tried to change FJB into Let’s Go Brandon. The perfect example of their fakenews.
Cracking wise about your elected leader is the same as pledging your allegiance to terrorism?
1/6 broke these people.
JohnJHarwood is offended. Rolling on the floor laughing. Same guy who was writing love letters to Podesta fawning over Hillary while working as a “straight reporter” and moderating Republican debates. So glad CNN let him come out of the closet.
And there are songs to go with it. The Democrats are in bad shape on this one. Rappers are spreading the word. (My favorite is DICTATOR by Mesus)
Too bad the 50+ military dogs left behind to die can’t use twitter.
Weird how they cheered on Kaepernick’s political statement at work, but deride this pilot for his.
