…in Canada. Via PJ Media, the Canadian government has apparently banned the phrase “Let’s go Brandon” in any government communications. It appears that some Canadian officials have been getting rambunctious in their memos and correspondence; hence the need to prohibit “the uses of colloquialism or sayings with intended double meaning or offense.” But in particular, there must have been an outbreak of “Let’s go Brandon,” and one suspects that this was the sole reason for the memo.



The memo raises questions, however. Such as: why do they care? After all, Joe Biden is not the Prime Minister of Canada. On its face, there is nothing offensive about “Let’s go Brandon,” so why are Canadian authorities so anxious to suppress it? (“grounds for immediate dismissal without recourse or labour union representation”) Are leftists in Canada acting out of solidarity with leftists in the U.S.? It seems so.

This, of course, is the sort of contrast we like: a popular uprising driven by humor–a meme–suppressed by censorious pecksniff liberals.
