The chant is now global.
No, not “Let’s Go Brandon!” The other one.
“Protesters in Rome chant ‘F*** Joe Biden’ as they march past the American Embassy,” one person wrote on Twitter over the weekend.

Thousands of demonstrators gathered on Saturday and marched down Rome’s famed Via Veneto, “clashing with police as they protested Italy’s new ‘Green Pass’ vaccination requirement for employees to enter their offices,” The Associated Press reported.
“The certification is mandatory beginning on Oct. 15 and applies to public and private workplaces. Both employees and employers risk fines if they don’t comply. Public sector workers can be suspended if they show up five times without a Green Pass. The pass is already required in Italy to enter museums, theaters, gyms and indoor restaurants, as well as to take long-distance trains and buses or domestic flights,” the wire service reported.
But somehow Romans decided to add Biden into their chants. The protest coincided with the visit of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to Rome. At one point, Italian security officials had to take Pelosi and her husband out of a Mass in Rome’s St. Patrick’s Church, CBS reported.
The chant “F*** Joe Biden” has exploded across the U.S. in the last few weeks, with college football crowds booming out the refrain in unison as they gather by the thousands in huge stadiums.
“This holiday weekend, as the Old Row Sports Twitter account extensively documented, saw many appearances of both versions of the chant, ranging from that preferred by Christian conservatives at Jerry-Fallwell-founded Liberty University to the much-earthier version, including one spelled out on the type of sign normally seen at road-construction sites,” The Western Journal reported.

On October 3, an NBC sports reporter interviewing NASCAR driver Brandon Brown at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama after Brown scored his first career NASCAR Xfinity Series win stated in a video that the crowd was chanting “Let’s go, Brandon!” when in reality they were chanting “F*** Joe Biden,” The Daily Wire reported.

Last month, Outkick chronicled the explosion of the chant:
Fans chanting “F–k Joe Biden” at stadiums from Tennessee to Alabama to Oxford, Mississippi is quickly becoming the battle cry for football fans across the country as the citizens of this country continue to show disobedience to the great [Emperor] and his presidency.
The big news this week with the “F–k Joe Biden” chant movement is that it has spread from college football and into the baseball community, where New Yorkers chanted “F–k Joe Biden” during Fox Sports’ weekend coverage of the Subway Series. Fans could be heard sending a message to Biden as ARod and Big Papi dissected the Yankees-Mets game.
Last Tuesday, an irritated Biden reacted to a chilly reception in Michigan, where some 500 protesters gathered, many holding signs that said “f*** Joe Biden” and “Stop the Spending.”
“Not withstanding some of the signs I saw coming in … that’s why 81 million Americans voted for me,” Biden said, emphasizing that he has a mandate to implement his “Build Back Better” agenda. “The largest number of votes in American history — a clear majority!”
