Sometimes, staring too long at an image can make you feel crazy. Or if you read a sentence that's worded in an unconventional way and your mind processes the sight words a little too quickly, you'll kick yourself after re-reading it because its meaning was easily comprehended. You've just got a lizard brain that was kicking in at the wrong minute. Since it does happen with certain images, folks want to know if that's what's going on with the three red lines in Biden's logo.

What does it mean? Joe Biden's three red lines explained.

All right, while some people are clearly looking at the "E" with a missing backbone (there's an anti-DNC joke in there somewhere), others wanted to know if there was some "hidden meaning" behind the three red lines in Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign logo. Some folks are probably already drumming up some pizzagate theories, or that it's a secret illuminati code that Joe's including in his messaging because apparently all politicians love displaying they're part of clandestine organizations.

If you wanted to believe that the former vice president was actually a member of some secret society that forces people to drink Black Cherry Faygo out of platinum goblets while aboard Jeffrey Epstein's jet, I've got some bad news for you: The three lines in his logo are supposed to represent the American flag. Whether or not those little bold lines do that for you, is something else entirely.

A lot of people think the three red bars in the Biden-Harris logo mean something else, too.

There was an ideological slogan prominent in the Chinese political scene of the 1950s that have people all in a kerfuffle as well. This spurned the familiar narrative of the DNC selling out America to foreign interests while invoking Donald Trump's strong economic stance against China. Anti-China sentiment has been a rallying cry of Trump's administration and his supporters in recent years, so it's easy to imagine the outcry over the "three red lines" in Biden's logo.

In reality, however, this isn't some Chinese conspiracy meant to subvert the U.S.'s political system. It was a logo designed by PR firm Mekanism, which states: "By incorporating nods to the American flag, this logo is a representation of Biden’s investment in America. The 3 stripes represent the branches of government and the strength of unity with Biden."

If you noticed that the logo is reminiscent of Barack Obama's, that's because it is. Mekanism intended to hearken to Obama's campaign, which is pretty fitting considering that the two men served in the highest positions of U.S. government for eight consecutive years:

"The logo also nods to the familiarity of the Obama ‘O’ where 3 stripes are seen."

In case you needed any further proof that talking politics drives people absolutely insane, look no further than everyone getting themselves in a tizzy over the way a campaign logo is designed.
