In case you did not know why so many on The Right are using the phrase “Let’s Go Brandon”, it is code for a vulgar statement referring to President Biden. This should come as no surprise given The Right’s affinity to a politician who bragged about grabbing women by their genitals and shooting someone on Fifth Avenue.
As George Bernard Shaw once said “I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.”
Michelle Obama told us “When they go low, we go high.”
I’d like to take this one step further. When they go low, let them go. We will remain on the high ground no matter what The Right does. We will justifiably claim the high ground as ours alone. As tempting as it is, we will refer to him as “Senator Mitch McConnell” and make no other schoolyard reference about his physical appearance. We will refer to him as Trump, or Donald Trump, or President Trump; no degrading nicknames or comments about complexion or hair style.
We will address all elected officials by their proper position.
The Right wants to “Own the Libs” – lets not allow that by joining them in vulgar rants and cruel remarks intended to inflict pain on others. Let The Right own that. Let them own the cruelty, the vulgarity, the meanness. They are clearly better at it and seem to enjoy it.
Let us own the high ground.
