A ‘Joe Biden’ Chant Goes Viral
The president’s deep unpopularity is being expressed in an unprecedented way.
Who knew that the only folks attending American college football games were diehard Donald Trump supporters? No? How else to explain the spontaneous outbreak at stadiums across the country of — shall we say — derogatory chants directed at President Joe Biden?
And we mean decidedly derogatory. Take a look, and a listen, but NOT if there are children within earshot:
Ah, there’s nothing like a White Out at Beaver Stadium in State College — except maybe a Maize Out at the Big House in Ann Arbor. But last weekend, even folks in Barack Obama’s Chicago were getting into the act. There, during ESPN’s pregame program, fans of either the Wisconsin Badgers or the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, or perhaps both, let their feelings be known about the awful first eight months of the Biden presidency:
But what began in college football stadiums has spread to other venues. The chant has even broken out among fans of that most ancient, austere, and august of sports, golf, where last week patriotic Ryder Cup fans were treated not only to a record-setting 19-9 beatdown of the European team but also this serenade of sorts:
And here’s country rocker Aaron Lewis — whose counter-cultural anthem “Am I the Only One” has gotten more than four million YouTube views since its release on July 2 — trying to get his fans to “sing” in unison:
Yeah, we know. The coarsening of our culture continues apace. And we’re not exactly taking the high road by calling your attention to all these examples of it — or by sharing this entertaining compendium of additional examples. But, still, it’s refreshing to see that people are passionate, that they’re politically engaged, and that they’re unapologetically exercising their First Amendment rights. After all, their right to freely express themselves is often denied them by Big Tech censors, so what better forum for fighting back and making one’s voice heard than a stadium with a captive audience of tens of thousands of potential voters?
As for Joe Biden, his “appeal” these days seems to transcend politics, culture, and race. For example, he carried uber-left Manhattan by 70 points against Donald Trump last year, but the locals this week couldn’t contain their, uh, enthusiasm for the president and his Democrat colleague, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio:

But enough talk of politics. Tomorrow marks another new and glorious college football weekend. And we know what that means.
