By now, you are likely familiar with the phenomenon of liberals freaking out over the phrase "Let's Go Brandon," which many Republicans have taken to chanting in mockery of an NBC reporter who reported that a NASCAR crowd that was clearly chanting "F*** Joe Biden" was chanting "Let's Go Brandon." A full-on cancel campaign has taken root to get a Southwest Airlines Pilot fired who may have uttered the phrase over his plane's intercom system (note: He may also have said "Let's go, Braves," or any number of other things; the audio is not clear).
The outrage has taken predictable turns, as a number of liberal commentators have nonsensically claimed that the phrase is racist. One CNN/MSNBC commentator even compared it to a Nazi salute.
NBC News has now apparently decided that it also constitutes a threat that should be investigated by the Secret Service, at least based upon an article written Monday about gun manufacturers who have begun to incorporate the "Let's go, Brandon" meme into various gun parts.
In the article, NBC notes that the Palmetto State Armory in Columbia, S.C., is marketing a "LETSGO15 stripped lower receiver" for an AR-15, which includes a fire mode selector that has three settings, :"'F@CK!'(Safe), 'JOE!' (Fire), 'BIDEN!' (Full-Auto)." The article also noted that "At least two other firms in other states, Culper Precision and My Southern Tactical, are advertising an AR-15 magazine for sale with a 'Let's Go Brandon' sticker."
The article indicated, "A spokesman for the U.S. Secret Service, which investigates threats against the president, declined to comment." The article did not indicate why the Secret Service was asked to comment about a derogatory joke directed against President Biden.
