Man who mocked Biden in NORAD call reports facing threats: ‘I am being attacked’

Joe Biden’s bodyguards in the media spent much of the Christmas holiday harassing a father who made fun of the president by saying “Let’s go, Brandon” during a live-streamed phone call.

That man, Jared Schmeck, now says he is receiving threatening phone calls over the joke, Fox News reports.

Freedom of speech?

During the NORAD Santa Tracking event on Christmas Eve, Schmeck baited Biden into repeating “Let’s go, Brandon,” an ironic, anti-Biden phrase with a vulgar subtext. “Let’s go, Brandon,’ I agree,” Biden said, according to The Washington Times.

Since then, Schmeck, a former police officer from Oregon, says he has received a stream of threats.

“And now I am being attacked for utilizing my freedom of speech,” he told The Oregonian, according to Fox.

Schmeck says he meant no disrespect to Biden — although, of course, it would not make it a crime if that was his intention — and that he simply wanted to express dissatisfaction with the job Biden is doing.

“It was merely just an innocent jest to also express my God-given right to express my frustrations in a joking manner,” he said, as Fox reported. “I love him just like I love any brother or sister.”

Double standards

But as far as those in the mainstream media are concerned, Schmeck’s stunt may as well be an act of “insurrection,” in the words of The Atlantic‘s Ron Brownstein.

All of a sudden, the very same people who chanted “F*** Trump” and who sought to discredit a presidential election with bogus “Russian collusion” stories are clutching their pearls over criticism of Biden.

Much like the airline pilot who the left compared to an ISIS terrorist for using the phrase, Schmeck has become the target of Biden’s sycophants for the crime of daring to humiliate the authoritarian-in-chief.

While some have criticized Schmeck’s prank as being in poor taste, making fun of failing, corrupt political leaders is a time-honored American tradition — and despite the blowback he has received, Schmeck says he is “100% behind” his actions.

“At the end of the day, I have nothing against Mr. Biden,” Schmeck told The Oregonian, according to Fox. “But I am frustrated because I think he can be doing a better job.”
