Well, here’s why analogies are not for everyone.
This week, Rep. Gloria Johnson (D-Tennessee) announced that if you have been chanting “Let’s Go, Brandon,” you are probably a flag-burner. Or something like one of those shameful imbeciles.
“As a friend said, I think [Let’s Go, Brandon] should be equated with burning the flag, in essence, that’s what they are doing,” Johnson tweeted.

The “LGB” chant has select elites on tilt beyond belief. A few weeks ago, CNN political analyst Joe Lockhard, a former Clinton press secretary, compared the cheer to coded rhetoric from Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, and ISIS. What a trio.
See, Democratic lawmakers and the media could have effectively degraded a euphemism for “F–k Joe Biden” had they been consistent. Equating the chanters to Klansmen carries little weight when none of them took any issue when celebrities similarly promoted vulgar rhetoric during the Trump administration.
The same blue-checks in dismay over “LGB” had celebrated after rapper Macklemore led a crowd chanting “F–k Donald Trump'” in 2017. As did they when Robert De Niro and 50 Cent shouted the same phrase in front of other large crowds.
So yelling vulgarly, either directly or indirectly, about the sitting U.S. President is traitorous only when aimed at one party’s president. That seems reasonable. Who could possibly oppose such logic? Certainly not Rep. Gloria Johnson.
