    Oregon Man Who Told Biden ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Says He’s Received Threats

    The Oregon man who drew international headlines when he told President Joe Biden “Let’s go Brandon” during a telephone call over the weekend said the comment was made in “jest” and that he’s received threats since the stunt.

    Jared Schmeck, a father of four, told the Oregonian on Dec. 25 that he is “being attacked for utilizing my freedom of speech” and is now receiving threatening phone calls.

    The call, which was streamed online, drew media attention, in part because of Biden’s response. He told Schmeck, “‘Let’s go Brandon,’ I agree.” Biden didn’t appear to be affected at all by Schmeck’s quip.

    Schmeck, a former police officer who works for a power company, said his family typically calls into the NORAD Santa Tracker on Christmas Eve every year and didn’t know it was being livestreamed.

    “I understand there is a vulgar meaning to ‘Let’s go, Brandon,’ but I’m not that simple-minded, no matter how I feel about him,” he told the outlet, adding that he has no ill feelings toward Biden. But, he argued, Biden could be “doing a better job” as president.

    “[Biden] seems like he’s a cordial guy,” he said. “There’s no animosity or anything like that. It was merely just an innocent jest to also express my God-given right to express my frustrations in a joking manner. … I love him just like I love any brother or sister.”

    Schmeck said he isn’t a supporter of President Donald Trump, but is a “free-thinking American and follower of Jesus Christ.”

    The meme started earlier this year after an NBC Sports reporter noted the crowd’s loud chant at a NASCAR race as she interviewed driver Brandon Brown, who had just won the race. She told the driver that they were chanting “Let’s go Brandon.” The actual chant was “[expletive] Joe Biden.”

    With his name now firmly stuck in the public lexicon, Brown, in an opinion article for Newsweek on Dec. 20, wrote that because of his profession, he doesn’t have “time to think about politics.”

    “My job is to run the next lap faster than the last one. Politics has never been that interesting to me,” he said. “Though, like most, I have always had the impression that politicians were likely the cause of more problems than they were the solutions.”

    “I have zero desire to be involved in politics,” Brown told The New York Times on Dec. 26.

    He also recently told Sports Business Journal that he’s struggled to obtain corporate sponsorship deals because of the phrase.

    White House officials didn’t respond to a request for comment by press time.

    ‘Let’s go Brandon’ Santa Tracker caller insists he meant no disrespect to Biden

    Jared Schmeck, 35, tells Oregonian he has ‘nothing against’ president to whom he repeated ‘Fuck Joe Biden’ rightwing meme

    The caller who ended a conversation with Joe Biden with the rightwing meme “Let’s go Brandon” – which means “fuck Joe Biden” – has insisted he was joking and meant no disrespect to the president.

    “At the end of the day I have nothing against Mr Biden,” Jared Schmeck, 35, told the Oregonian newspaper. “But I am frustrated because I think he can be doing a better job. I mean no disrespect to him.”

    Schmeck, from Central Point, also said he was not a “Trumper” but rather a “free-thinking American and follower of Jesus Christ”.

    On Christmas Eve, the president and his wife, Dr Jill Biden, took calls to the North American Aerospace Defense Command Santa Tracker, which each year purports to follow the progress of Santa and his reindeer.

    A traditional duty for American presidents, in 2018 it was nearly upended when Donald Trump told a seven-year-old belief in Santa Claus was “marginal” at that age.

    Biden and Schmeck discussed presents Schmeck’s four children were hoping to receive, and how one, Hunter, shared a name with the president’s son and grandson. Schmeck said he was hoping for a “quiet night”.

    Biden sad: “Lots of luck, dad.”

    All on the call laughed.

    At the end of the call, Schmeck said: “Merry Christmas and Let’s go Brandon.”

    “Let’s go Brandon, I agree,” Biden said, as his wife winced.

    Biden also said: “By the way are you in Oregon? Where’s your home?”

    But the call was disconnected.

    “Let’s go Brandon” originated in an interview with a racing car driver by a TV reporter who may have misheard a crowd’s obscene chant.

    It has flourished in rightwing and pro-Trump circles – even being promoted by Republican congressmen and the Texas senator Ted Cruz.

    Schmeck and his wife promoted the remark on social media. But they met with a tide of opprobrium, including a tweet in which the California congressman Eric Swalwell pointed to Biden’s painful personal history.

    “I refuse to believe we are this indecent as people,” the Democrat wrote. “Not on Christmas Eve. And not to a person who lost his wife and daughter at Christmastime. We are better than this. Be kind and Merry Christmas.”

    Schmeck, a former police officer, told the Oregonian he was “being attacked for utilising my freedom of speech”.

    He also said he had received some potentially threatening phone calls of his own.

    “I understand there is a vulgar meaning to ‘Lets go Brandon’ but I’m not that simple-minded, no matter how I feel about him,” Schmeck said.

    “[Biden] seems likes he’s a cordial guy. There’s no animosity or anything like that. It was merely just an innocent jest to also express my God-given right to express my frustrations in a joking manner.”

    Schmeck said subjects stoking those frustrations with Biden included vaccine mandates and supply chain problems.

    He also insisted: “I love him just like I love any other brother or sister.”
