Americans Disgusted After Learning Walmart is Selling ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ T-Shirts, ‘Walmart is Anti-American Trash!’

We do not have time to go over the entire “Let’s go Brandon” phenomenon for those who haven’t been able to follow the story from its sordid beginnings. If you haven’t been able to pay close enough attention, congratulations, your life is centered around love, family, career, etc. and not overly dedicated to politics. If you have followed the entire thing from the beginning to now, you know that “Let’s Go Brandon” means “Fck Joe Biden.”

The “clever” MAGA statement has been used on the floor of the House of Representatives. It has been used by a pilot for Southwest Airlines. It has been used by Senator Ted Cruz. And now it is being used on Walmart’s website (and we presume in the stores) on t-shirts for sale. The t-shirts literally say – in code – fck Joe Biden.

The fact that the shirts are being sold in Walmart gives the entire message credibility, that it is now acceptable and somewhat culturally cool to be selling these shirts and sending the message.

Having been down this road before with Walmart we already know what they’re going to say. They have contracts with vendors, they do not control what goes up. This, of course, is bullsh*t.

Someone with a blue vest hangs those shirts. Many of them are good people who have no idea what the shirt means, especially if he or she is a black employee, one highly unlikely to be watching Fox News.. But someone also knows what those shirts mean, and the person that puts them on the web, for sale, knows what those shirts mean.

It is incredibly important that the left unify itself and act fast to let these people know that this is not acceptable and that they will lose the little bit of business they have on the left if they continue to validate this message.

Let the phone calls and emails fly hard and fast, just as the net promised:

If Trump runs for President in 2024, do you think he will win?
