Get the Scoop on the new anti-police flavor

The horrible, anti-American communists (even though they benefit greatly financially from Capitalism) at Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream are at it again.

This time, they created a new flavor for equally-America-hating Representative Cori Bush, in support of her $10 million People’s Response Act. The flavor is called “Change is Brewing.”

This was announced by Bush and the ice cream company’s “head of activism,” Jabari Pall, in a press conference Monday, and the purpose of the new treat, aside from gaslighting, is to fund the “Defund the Police” movement.

During the conference, Pall said, “The flavor supports the vision of the world in which every community is safe and everyone including black and brown people can thrive.”

Bush, a St. Louis congresswoman who is also a member of the Marxist group Black Lives Matter, introduced the bill, which is meant to replace police with social workers for certain types of responses like mental health issues and substance abuse calls. Additionally, it would also create a new federal agency that would fall under the Department of Health and Human Services. The purpose of the group would be to “research and fund alternatives to incarceration and policing that will save lives in our communities.”

Bush said during the conference, “For decades, our communities have suffered under the violence of intentional disinvestment and underfunding. Our healthcare, our education, our housing, our green spaces all left in shambles while our police spending per capita continued to increase to its present level as one of the highest in the country.”

The bill, unsurprisingly, is sponsored by Representatives Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib and is endorsed by Black Lives Matter, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Human Rights Campaign.

Featured on the carton are only black people, with one woman painting the word “liberation.” Ben & Jerry’s partnered with “black-owned businesses” for some of the ice cream ingredients, like the coffee and brownies.

The representative has been scrutinized recently for her advocating for the defunding of the police while she spends tens of thousands of dollars on personal security. The Daily Mail reported that between April 15 and June 28, she spent close to $70,000 of her campaign funds on her own security, “almost $20,000 above the median household income for residents in her district,” the outlet reported.

Bush’s response to this was, “I’m going to make sure I have security because, I know, I have had attempts on my life. And I have too much work to do, there are too many people that need help right now, for me to allow that.”

A “portion” of the sale from Change is Brewing ice cream will go towards supplementing Bush’s bill should it pass.

Turning your business political is 50% suicide. No matter what side you are on you lose 50% of your clients. Plain stupidity. Good luck with your future B&J.
