Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream ENDORSED “BlackLivesMatter” – Police Groups Call For Americans To BOYCOTT!

Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream ENDORSED “BlackLivesMatter” – Police Groups Call For Americans To BOYCOTT!

Yes! I am so glad Blue Lives Matter is doing this. I wrote last week how Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream is supporting the Black Lives Matter movement… putting black lives above everyone else, especially police. They should be boycotted by everyone out there. Blue Lives Matter is an organization of current and past police officers and those that support them. And I don’t blame them for calling for a boycott.

Last week, the ice cream liberal duo posted an essay on their Facebook page noting the company’s support for Black Lives Matter, a controversial group that says they’re fighting against systemic racism and injustice. They were basically accusing police officers of racism. People everywhere were outraged and furious, but Ben & Jerry’s founders refuse to back down. So, I say let them experience the consequences of their cop-hatred… right in the wallet.

From TheBlaze:

Now, Blue Lives Matter, an organization formed in response to the increased outrage against America’s law enforcement, wants all Americans to boycott Ben and Jerry’s to send the company a message.

In a statement posted to the group’s website, Blue Lives Matter said Ben and Jerry’s went too far in their accusation that law enforcement is guilty of “widespread systemic and institutionalized racism.”

“Black Lives Matter is not a civil rights group. Most people have their own personal beliefs about what Black Lives Matter means to them,” the organization said in their statement. “They think that their personal definition for Black Lives Matter is what the organized BLM groups stand for; this is not the case.”

But, according to Blue Lives Matter, not only did Ben and Jerry’s go too far, but their endorsement of Black Lives Matter is downright “dangerous.”

“Ben & Jerry’s went beyond making a statement in support of civil rights when they actively accused law enforcement of widespread racism,” the statement said. “By spreading these false and misleading statements, Ben & Jerry’s lends an appearance of legitimacy to the baseless claims that police officers are killing men based on the color of their skin. This message has inspired the assassination and attempted assassination of police officers, and it costs officers their lives.”

The group’s statement has been shared more than 130,000 times.

This is nothing new for these Vermont Marxists… they have used their brand before to support Iran, to fight voter ID laws and to stand for gay rights. They even came up with a new flavor, “Empower-mint.” And last summer, after the Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states, the company temporarily changed the name of their cookie dough flavor to, “I dough, I dough,” celebrating the decision.

“All lives do matter. But all lives will not matter until Black lives matter,” the creamery wrote. We all have to choose where we stand and I stand with police officers. I can go to Baskin-Robbins or Braum’s and there are a ton of brands to choose from. Maybe Ben & Jerry’s should do a new flavor called “Hands Up, Don’t Scoop” and hang an out-of-business sign up while they are at it.
