NASCAR has attacked the viral “Let’s Go, Brandon” chant, reprimanding the conservative fans while siding with the corporate media and the Left in a political alliance.
NASCAR President, Steve Phelps, said NASCAR wants no part of the saying, which originated after an interview following a race. An NBC reporter misheard fans chanting “F**k Joe Biden,” who translated the crowd’s words as “Let’s Go, Brandon,” thinking the fans were referencing Brandon Brown, the driver.
“It’s an unfortunate situation, and I feel for Brandon, I feel for [NBC News personality] Kelli,” Phelps said. “I think unfortunately it speaks to the state of where we are as a country. We do not want to associate ourselves with politics, the Left or the right.“
“Do we like the fact that it kind of started with NASCAR and then is gaining ground out elsewhere? No, we’re not happy about that,” said Phelps. The popularity of the chant has led liberal media personalities to freak out, enraged that the public would dare to criticize the president.
Phelps has threatened to sue NASCAR fans who use so-called copyrighted league imagery in Let’s Go Brandon merchandise. The racing stripes resembling NASCAR’s logo have appeared on t-shirts and other material; it is, however, unclear if a copyright claim from the league would have any standing.
NASCAR’s fans are primarily conservative, but the “sport’s” leadership is affiliated with elite corporate media from the Democratic Party. Last year, a driver was caught in a hate hoax; he falsely claimed a simple garage door pull was a noose in his stall, intended to symbolize racial hatred.
