“Let’s Go Brandon,” the popular anti-Biden meme that took off as a jab at fake news media, has been banned by the Canadian government.
The Canadian agency Shared Services, a department that is responsible for providing and consolidating IT services across the government, issued a stern warning to federal employees that referencing the phrase could lead to instant termination “without recourse or labor union participation.”
“This is a formal notification that all government correspondence must be professional in nature and approved by department heads,” the letter warns. “When applicable all correspondence must be vetted by the PMO for framing and message prior to public disclosure or internal distribution.”
The letter, dated October 14, then goes on to state that “Let’s Go Brandon” has been specifically “banned” by the Canadian Public Service.
“The uses of colloquialisms or sayings with intended double meaning or offense are strictly prohibited in all means of correspondence and/or communication,” the memo stated. “Specifically, the use of the wording ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ and any variation thereof under any circumstance is banned by the Canadian Public Service.”
“Please contact your department heads for the applicable writing references,” the letter continued. “We have been informed that this will be zero tolerance issue within the management structure this position is fully supported by the leadership of PSAC. Violation of this policy will be grounds for immediate dismissal without recourse or labor union participation.”
One can only imagine what set off the public brouhaha that compelled the Canadian Thought Police to fire off a missive on government letterhead threatening employees with instant termination if they say “Let’s Go Brandon.” For those not in the know, the phrase indeed has a “double meaning” because it was coined by a NASCAR reporter that was hilariously attempting to hide the crowd’s “F*ck Joe Biden” chants.

The Canadian government is giving America a sneak preview of what happens when the government in your country gets too much power. Anything that is perceived by elites to be mockery can be banned on threat of termination. That is why you don’t let the government ban speech, because it eventually leads to such censorship. Let’s Go Brandon.
