Ben & Jerry’s ice cream company has announced that they are releasing a “Defund the Police” ice cream flavor inspired by Squad member Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO).
On Monday, the radical-left brand announced a new flavor named “Change is Brewing” which is a coffee ice cream with marshmallow swirls and fudge brownie bites.
The company said, “It’s time to divest from systems that criminalize Black communities & invest in a vision of public safety that allows everyone to breathe free.”
The Daily Wire reported:
NBC News reported that the flavor is intended to promote the People’s Response Act, which was introduced by Bush and would replace police officers with social workers who would respond to mental health incidents. As Bush told NBC, her bill would divert funding from police departments to “grassroots organizations already doing the work of keeping our communities safe, and creating alternative responses to 911 calls for mental health emergencies.”
“The People’s Response Act can and will transform public safety in our country. This is the future that we deserve — and Ben & Jerry’s support of this bill shows the momentum we have towards making it a reality,” she added.
Bush, who is one of the biggest hypocrites in Congress, spent $70,000 on private security. When confronted on the issue by CBS News, Bush had a total meltdown, saying she needs the protection but the peasant citizens of America don’t.
“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,” Bush said. “There are too many people that need help right now for me to allow that. So, if I end up spending $200,000, if I spend $10 more dollars on it, you know what, I get to be here to do the work.”
“So, suck it up and defunding the police has to happen,” she said. “We need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets.”
The Daily Wire also reported:
Bush’s campaign spent $54,120.92 between April and June for “security services” to a firm called RS&T Security Consulting. She also paid $15,000 to Nathaniel Davis for “security services” over the same period. She has spent over $100,000 on private security so far this year.
According to a recent report from The Daily Caller released earlier this year, other “Squad” members also spent thousands of taxpayer dollars on private security. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) paid $24,279.13 for “security” on January 25, as well as $3,986.60 for “security services” on January 19 and $849.22 on February 2. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) spent $3,103.61 for her personal security, while Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) spent $4,186.75.
