Leftists really do not like the “Let’s go, Brandon” slogan. As Twitchy has reported, a very concerned Jim Sciutto of CNN wanted people using it to think of the lesson they were teaching the children. A commentator for CNN and MSNBC tweeted that “Let’s go, Brandon” is the MAGA version of “Sieg Heil.” After a Southwest Airlines pilot reportedly signed off with “Let’s go, Brandon,” CNN analyst Asha Rangappa wondered what would have happened if the pilot had said “long live ISIS” instead. And speaking of ISIS, Joe Lockhart tweeted that it was a coded message like those used by ISIS, the Ku Klux Klan, and the Nazis.
The furor has died down a bit, but the hot takes are still coming in. Gloria Johnson, a state representative from Tennessee, got the idea from a friend that “Let’s go, Brandon” should be equated with burning the flag.
As a friend said, I think it should be equated with burning the flag, in essence, that’s what they are doing. https://t.co/0WrJzFSkwv

You mean protected under the 1A, yes, completely agree. Good take, Gloria.

I thought this was satire, but this lady is actually an elected representative in the USA…
How is it possible such despotic lunatics get elected?
These people are legitimately insane.

LOL! What an absurd, ridiculous, anti-American suggestion.

Don’t lie on your friends. We know it’s only you thinking that.

We are now playing by your rules… Let's go Brandon!
And please stop with "a friend" canard. If you feel that way, just own up to it.

Wasn’t your party the one who had their supporters burning our flag all summer in 2020? Didn’t your Party say f*ck Trump for 5 years? Was that like burning the flag too or is it only equal to that if it offends Joe Biden? Let us know @VoteGloriaJ. pic.twitter.com/plq17F3FDL

You don’t strike me as a person who thinks flag burning is wrong so what’s the problem?
— LLB (@LauraBa36404655) November 16, 2021
I thought burning the flag was cool though.

The Democrats no longer associate themselves with the American flag. The minute you see one, automatically you think conservative/Republican

True story. Remember the New York Times’ Mara Gay saying she found the dozens of American flags she saw on Long Island “just disturbing”?
This is a ridiculous statement. Do you honestly believe people can’t separate the person from the office?

Only if you believe we should be pledging allegiance to Joe f’n Biden.
— Rat Fink (@shmidtBC) November 16, 2021
So Biden is the United States and all the people of this country?
It’s a chant of the extreme displeasure of the direction of our country. Would you rather have those people go protest and block traffic for hours?

If “that’s what they’re doing” refers to protected political speech in with you.
— Mr. Peabody (@mrpeabody) November 16, 2021
One is a criticism of the country, the other is a criticism of government, Biden, and the awful job he’s doing.
Burning the flag is anti-American. FJB and LGB are patriotic and pro-American.

File this under takes we didn’t hear for the four years Donald Trump was president.
