Video of 'F**K Joe Biden' chants at Texas A&M vs Kent State football match goes viral
One user mocked, 'Biden would have been clapping along until someone on his staff told him not to ?'
Considering deteriorating public opinion and falling approval ratings, President Joe Biden is exactly everybody's favourite. And this is further proven as explicit chants against Biden broke out in the crowds on Sunday, during the Texas A&M Aggies game against the Kent State Golden Flashes. In a video posted online, one can hear chants of "f**k Joe Biden" as what seems like a large crowd joins in.
The video was shared by 'the-typical-liberal' Instagram account, a meme page run by conservative Grant Godwin which has more than 2.4 million followers. "F*** Joe Biden!" Chants at the Texas A&M game- Let this be a new trend at all college football games!" Godwin wrote in the post.
The video was also shared by the Old Row Sports Twitter account, and noted that this was the fourth instance in recent days in which the chant was sung at college football games. "A fourth “Fuck Joe Biden” chant at @OldRowAggies!" the tweet said.
As per reports online, the same chant was also sung by a small section of the crowd at the September 2 Coastal Carolina Chanticleers game against the Citadel Bulldogs, as well as the Virginia Tech match against UNC the following evening. "Another FUCK JOE BIDEN chant, this time at the Virginia Tech game ITS NOW A MOVEMENT @OldRowHokies," the Old Row Sports account tweeted while sharing a video of the chant breaking out in Virginia Tech.
These chants are coming at a time when Biden's approval ratings are falling in the wake of his decision to withdraw troops from Afghanistan. What made matters worse is the suicide attack at Kabul airport which killed more than 180 people, including 13 U.S. service members. According to a recent ABC News/ Washington Post poll, Biden's approval rating now stands at 44 per cent - a decline of eight points from May. At the same time, his disapproval rate is at 51 per cent, which is nine points more from the same period. The survey also revealed that while 77 per cent of Americans supported America's withdrawal from Afghanistan, 60 per cent disapproved of the way Biden handled it.
On social media, many people are essentially chanting the same thing virtually. "Most popular president in history," one user commented on the Instagram post with a clown emoji. Another user mocked, "Biden would have been clapping along until someone on his staff told him not to 😂" "Music to my ears," another user wrote.
Others asked to "keep politics out of sports". One said, "These the same “We don’t want politics in sports” ppl?" Another user added, "With all due respect, as a conservative myself, isn’t this kinda hypocritical? We’ve been preaching keep politics out of sports for a long time, but the moment there’s politics that suits our agenda/narrative it’s okay? Regardless of intending to be humorous or not, it’s still being political at a sporting event. There should be consistency from all parties, not hypocrisy simply cuz something suits or goes against an agenda."
