I personally decided that Ben &Jerry’s outrageously expensive ice cream for the Woke and Wonderful would never cross through Marshall doors when it created a flavor honoring partisan hate-monger Stephen Colbert. The company’s cynical political pandering has only gotten worse since. Perhaps the most nauseating aspect of the company’s pose is that it’s obviously a marketing plan to appeal to ice-cream loving progressives. The real Ben and Jerry sold off the brand years ago, like any good socialists, accepting millions to allow a multi-national corporation to pretend it’s the founder as it spouts simple-minded leftist talking points. This tweet, however, charged into Ethics Alarms Popeye territory…
How unethical is this? Let me could the ways:
One, the tweet either negligently or deliberately misrepresents the case as one involving race or allegations of racial bias. This is a variation on the “Rirrenhouse is a white supremacist” lie.
Two, Rittenhouse did not “cross state lines illegally carrying a rifle.”
Three: “Ya know, they’re right! Remember when that black man stabbed two white people to death, left their blood and his DNA all over the place, and he was…oh. Never mind.”
Four: The trial “is going” the way it has because the prosecutors over-charged and don’t have the evidence to prove their case. If a black kid was the defendant, I think the judge might have ended the trial by now.
Five, the entire tweet’s purpose is to be racially divisive and to impugn, critical race theory-style, the justice system as “racist” without the facts, analysis, or intelligence to do so.
Six, what THE HELL does the Rittenhouse trial have to do with ice cream?
Meanwhile, Has Twitter suspended the Ben & Jerry’s account for spreading disinformation? Of course not. But I already stopped buying its ice cream…
