  • Ben from “Ben and Jerry’s” wants to sell “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” shirts in stores

    Though the phrase has been roundly discredited from being a factual element in the police shooting of Michael Brown based on forensic evidence, Ben Cohen, of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream wants Ben and Jerry’s stores to sell t-shirts that read “HANDS UP DON’T SHOOT” as a way to help end “police oppression”. Cohen’s crusade against “police brutality” was also picked up by at least one local store, in Athens, GA, where this was posted to their Facebook page:

    “Our scoop shop managers got to meet THE Ben and Jerry at the annual franchisee/manager retreat! Stay tune to see how our shop will implement Ben’s take on “hands up don’t shoot” campaign to address police brutality and empower children of color.”

    Yesterday however, after a social media backlash to the co-founder’s statements, Ben and Jerry’s released this not-so-apologetic statement on their website:

    “Ben & Jerry’s deeply respects and appreciates all those who protect and serve our communities. We do not subscribe to the narrative that we have to choose between black lives and blue lives. All lives matter.

    There is injustice rooted in race in our society. This is an important issue and is deserving of efforts from all including businesses, organizations and individuals to further peace and understanding in our communities. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said it best: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

    While the Hands Up Don’t Shoot campaign is not being conducted by Ben & Jerry’s business, we support our cofounders as individuals and our independent franchisees to express their values and be activists in their community.”

    This is the same organization that was put on a boycott list for LEOs for donating to the defense fund of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.


    I haven't bought anything B&J since they supported Mumia (or whatever the savage's name is). Somebody should tell this moron that #Black Lives Matter...(unless killed by other blacks) is a fraud.

        I despise B&J. I hope they all go bankrupt.

          Fuq B & J both.

          “We’ve heard speculation on cases before that didn’t turn out to be true,” Mr. Crump said. “It’s too much to put the family through to respond to every rumor.”
          Yes, they'd rather start the rumors, and they won't comment until the findings based on evidence contradict their emotionally heated position that is not supported by any fact in the known universe. Thank you for playing. And I'd bet money that the civil suit has already been written and they're just waiting to file.

            Welp, that's it for me and mine; none of us will ever set foot in one of their ****holes again. I didn't know about the Mumia Abu-**** support, or that would have happened much sooner.

                        We don't have Ben & Jerry's here in the great state of Oklahoma. We have Braum's. Braums sells ice cream the way it was meant to be sold: full of deliciousness and devoid of any left-wing nonsense.

                            As I said in the other forum, there's only one B & J that matters, and it ain't Ben and Jerry.

                            Hands up, don't spooge!
