“Shockingly,” America’s super-wokified ice cream company has jumped into the Kyle Rittenhouse case with both Birkenstock-wearing feet, and not a minute too soon. The defense rested on Friday after eight days of testimony that saw more than 30 witnesses, including riveting testimony from Rittenhouse himself.
Judge Bruce Schroeder told jurors each side will have two-and-a-half hours for closings on Monday, before he instructs the panel on the law. But wait, judge — Ben & Jerry’s hasn’t given its testimony, yet. Until now.
Ben & Jerry’s blasted for spreading misinformation about Kyle Rittenhouse, inventing hypothetical scenario to bring race into the case https://t.co/FBYvBKmFIU

“Testimony,” defined: “a ridiculous hypothetical scenario, based solely on race-based conspiracy crap that’s as hilarious as it is pathetic.”
The #RittenhouseTrial displays yet again that our “justice” system is racist. How would this trial be going if he was a Black 17 yr old that crossed state lines illegally carrying an AR-15 and shot 3 white protesters? We need real justice in the legal system. This isn’t it.
Give me a sec — BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
These guys, of all people, playing the whataboutism card? Any liberal playing the whataboutism card?

Ben & Jerry’s might know how to make marginally good, overpriced ice cream, but legal geniuses they ain’t. Last time I checked, “what ifs” and hypothetical scenarios — particularly previously debunked hypothetical scenarios, driven solely by political predisposition – are not admissible in a court of law.
As reported by The Blaze on Saturday, the nonsense tweeted by Ben & Jerry’s has been debunked for more than a year. The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office released a statement on Oct. 13, 2020, clarifying that Rittenhouse never had possession of the firearm used in Kenosha while he was in Illinois.
An extensive investigation was conducted by the Antioch Police Department regarding the gun used in a shooting in Kenosha on Aug. 28. The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office has reviewed that investigation to determine if any crimes were committed in Lake County, Illinois.
To that end, the investigation revealed the gun used in the Kenosha shooting was purchased, stored and used in Wisconsin. Additionally, there is no evidence the gun was ever physically possessed by Kyle Rittenhouse in Illinois.
Oops, ice cream dudes.
In addition, a friend of Rittenhouse testified in the trial that he — the friend — purchased the gun used in the shooting, not Rittenhouse, noted The Blaze. Also, court records obtained showed that the rifle went from Wisconsin to Illinois and then back but it was in the trunk of a car driven by Rittenhouse’s friend and was not in Rittenhouse’s possession while he was in Illinois.
And not to nitpick, Ben & Jerry’s and other left-wing loons, but the firearm used in the shooting was not an AR-15 — AKA: “scary-looking assault rifle, weapon of war, automatic rifle, machine gun, or something.” It was a Smith & Wesson M&P 15, court records showed.
Another problem with their loony logic? The men Rittenhouse shot were white.
So, let’s get back to Ben & Jerry’s “what if?” whataboutism game, shall we? First, the race card attempt to interject racism into a non-race-related incident.
“What if” the Blacks in the below scenarios were white, Ben & Jerry’s? Or, any liberals brave enough to answer (lie in response).
As RedState reported on Thursday, New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams last week vowed to reinstate plain-clothes, anti-crime police units on the city’s crime-ridden streets. The units were disbanded under soon-to-be-former Mayor Bill de Blasio during the Black Lives Matter riots of 2020. In response to Adams’s announcement, Black Lives Matter NYC leader Hawke Newsome issued a direct threat to the mayor-elect and residents of New York City:
“If they think they are going back to the old ways of policing then we’re going to take to the streets again. There will be riots. There will be fire, and there will be bloodshed.”
Imagine for a nanosecond the immediate histrionics on the left if instead of Hawke Newsome and Black Lives Matter, Henry Enrique Tarrio and the Proud Boys had made that exact threat, anywhere in America — let alone in response to a black mayor-elect.
Next, as RedState reported last Monday, Boston-based State Street Global Advisors — one of the world’s largest investment companies — announced that henceforth, its leaders will need permission to hire white men as part of the company’s new diversity hiring initiative. “This is now front and central for State Street; it’s on every senior executive’s scorecard,” said Jess McNicholas, the company’s head of inclusion, diversity, and corporate citizenship.
Needless to say, if a company were to make a similar announcement about hiring Black men, all hell would break loose — and rightly so. Yet, white guys? All good.
Finally, as RedState reported on Saturday, The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin called for different ground rules for Republicans, deeming conservatives “not normal.”
“You have to have new ground rules for the media. They have to stop treating Republicans like normal politicians. They are not normal politicians … This is a party that spends its entire time cooking up ridiculous culture memes and fanning violence and coming up with outright lies.”
Waaay too farcical to even address. Imagine, though, the liberal hysteria if a Fox News host called for different “ground rules” for Democrats because they’re not “normal politicians,” choosing instead to fan violence and engage in outright lying. Remind you of anyone?
These were just three examples of the blatant whataboutism hypocrisy of the left, but as we are all aware, we could go on for hours listing example after example, proving again and again that the hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.
I think I’m done, here. Time for a chocolate malt from my local Graeter’s Ice Cream shop.
Listen — just one more day of pimping, here, gang — but pimping for a good cause indeed!
