Extremely profitable liberal ice-cream company Ben & Jerry’s is serious about getting rid of armed law enforcement – so serious that they are rolling out the marshmallow swirls and fudge brownies.
It all fits into leftist attempts to guide the thinking of the masses: If cold-brew coffee ice cream with swirls is yummy, then cities without armed police officers must be yummy too.
According to NBC News, the Vermont-based purveyor of overpriced ice cream is unveiling a new flavor to promote the People’s Response Act, legislation cooked up by Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., that seeks to stop mean police from hurting people with mental illnesses when they break down and threaten to harm others.
The new flavor has a suitably weak-punny, Obama-ist name as well: Change Is Brewing. Jabari Paul, who has the odd position of “U.S. activism manager” for the company, announced the new flavor during a press briefing along with declaring the company’s support for the legislation and making the obligatory commitment to advancing racial justice by selling expensive ice cream.
“The flavor supports the vision of the world in which every community is safe and everyone including Black and brown people can thrive,” said Paul, who appears to be thriving well as a black man in the current, unjust world.
The earthshaking new ice cream flavor comes just months after Bush announced a $10 billion proposal intended to transform public safety by setting up a community safety division within the Department of Health and Human Services that would send non-police first responders – presumably unarmed – into potentially violent, deadly situations as long as the perpetrators have mental health issues or drug problems.
That is, incidents of gun violence and drug abuse would be treated as public health concerns rather than immediate threats to people’s lives.
