President Joe Biden’s alma mater, Syracuse University, had a “Let’s Go Brandon” sign removed from the stands of the school’s football stadium last week during a game against Boston College.
A photo of the sign shows “Let’s Go Brandon” in blue letters, flanked by two skulls bearing the Syracuse “S,” according to CNY Central.

The phrase became a national phenomenon after a sports reporter at a NASCAR race mistook the crowd’s “F*** Joe Biden” chant for “Let’s go Brandon.”
Sarah Scalese, Syracuse University’s senior associate vice president for communications, claimed school officials removed the sign from the football stadium because of its “profane” nature.
Even though it did not include any profanity, its meaning was implied, she claimed.
“While signs are welcome during athletic events, signs with profanity—explicit or implied—will not be tolerated,” she said.
“Once the signs and the nature of their content were brought to our attention, our event staff and public safety worked expeditiously to seek the removal of the signs,” she continued. “We appreciate our patrons’ cooperation with this request.”
Biden graduated from Syracuse University College of Law in 1968.
As the “Let’s go Brandon” phrase has become more popular, the Left’s efforts to squash it have become more absurd.
Just this week, CNN analyst Joe Lockhart compared the phrase to rhetoric one would hear from ISIS, the Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan. Others have claimed “Let’s go Brandon” is “vulgar” that might be tantamount to “hate speech.”
“You know who also had coded statements like Brandon? ISIS, the Klan, Nazi’s…beginning to get the point?” Lockhart tweeted on Monday.
