BLUE Lives Matter Is Boycotting Ben & Jerry’s For Their Support Of Black Lives Matter
It would seem that Ben & Jerry's (the ice-cream guys), may be in for a “rocky road” if the boycott by our brave man in woman in blue becomes a national movement.
The dust-up began when the ice-cream makers endorsed the hate group “Black Lives Matter” and then doubled down stating that the company was "comfortable" with any backlash it may receive for supporting the anti-police hate group.
And no sooner was that statement made public; a call for a boycott by Blue Lives Matter immediately began with a blog accusing the ice-cream makers of peddling "a misinformation campaign" that might prove "dangerous" to officers.
The police blog went on to explain that Black Lives Matter isn’t a civil rights organization.
The blog contends that: "Ben & Jerry's went beyond making a statement in support of civil rights when they actively accused law enforcement of widespread racism, 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."
The post continued: "Black Lives Matter is made up of political organizations with political goals that most of Ben & Jerry's customers would disagree with."
One of those political goals calls for divestment from policing and reparations for African-Americans because of slavery.
In another statement Blue Lives Matter directly rejected the false allegations of the hate group that "systemic and institutionalized racism" in policing are a threat to the "lives and well-being of black people.”
There’s no doubt that race relationships have degenerated within the last decade, and perhaps the reason for that may be the same reason why the inner cities all across America, for well over 50-years still remain locked in poverty, crime and in despair, despite the trillions of dollars poured into social and welfare programs.
And perhaps there lies the issue, in that for over 5-decades progressive Democrat’s because of political expediency refused to actually address honestly the plight within the inner cities, that of fractured families, a 70% out-of-wedlock crises, and a third-world education system, reserved exclusively for those within that war-torn inner city environment.
Moreover, one wonders how many Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream stores actually set up shop within those neighborhoods?
