Yahoo rejected a political ad from a Republican senatorial candidate in Arizona because he encouraged voters to “Let’s go Brandon.”
According to Fox News, Yahoo told the campaign staff of GOP candidate Jim Lamon that it turned down the online commercial because the LGB line is “inflammatory and offensive.”
Imagine: an inflammatory and offensive political ad. Who knew?
In the 30-second spot, which Lamon’s campaign provided to Fox News, the candidate declares, “If you are pissed off at the direction of our country, let’s go. If you’re ready to secure the border and stop the invasion, let’s go. You want to keep corrupt politicians from rigging elections, let’s go.”
“Let’s take the fight to Joe Biden and show him We the People put America first. The time is now,” Lamon says.
Then, as the ad ends, he adds, “Let’s go Brandon. Are you with me?”
As the commercial fades out, a crowd chants “Let’s go Brandon.”
That part is reminiscent of the crowd at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama last year that chanted “F–k Joe Biden” as NASCAR driver Brandon Brown was being interviewed by NBC Sports after his first career win.
During the interview, reporter Kelli Stavast told Brown, “As you can hear the chants from the crowd, ‘Let’s go Brandon.’”
Since then the phrase has become a rallying cry for conservatives, who use it as a family-friendly alternative to show their disdain for the Democratic president.
Yet, according to Fox News, a Yahoo rep told Lamon’s campaign, “We would not be able to approve this ad due to the use of ‘Let’s Go Brandon,’ which would be considered overly inflammatory and offensive. If that is excluded we would be able to approve it.”
Lamon, in a follow-up social media video, added, “The Big Tech oligarchs are interfering in elections and censoring conservatives. Big Tech stepped in to help their liberal buddies who can’t win elections fairly. I say bring it on, and America stand up. Let’s take back our country and oh, by the way, Let’s go Brandon.”
Lamon is running for the opportunity to challenge Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly.
