For years, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream has been known as a far-left progressive company. Their founders have been very outspoken about leftist hot topics ranging from LGBTQ supremacy to climate change hysteria. Now, they’re going further than even many in the Black Lives Matter community by calling for the complete dismantling of America’s law enforcement system.
“The murder of #DaunteWright is rooted in white supremacy and results from the intentional criminalization of Black and Brown communities,” they Tweeted. “This system can’t be reformed. It must be dismantled and a real system of public safety rebuilt from the ground up. #DefundThePolice”

Their idiotic Tweet has been liked nearly 15,000 times and retweeted nearly 4,500 times. According to The Right Scoop:
Boy the radical socialists are coming out of the woodwork on Daunte Wright’s killing just like they did a year ago with George Floyd, making absolutely absurd claims in order to abolish police and rebuild it with “wellness counselors and tow trucks”. And the sad thing is that there are too many people who’ve bought into this garbage and are applauding Ben & Jerry’s for this asinine statement.
You know, we may not recognize this country in another decade. It’s already harder to recognize now than it was just over a decade ago.
The killing of Daunte Wright is being reported as an accident that happened when former-officer Kim Potter thought she was pulling out her taser when she was actually pulling out her firearm. She shot Wright, who was fleeing from police who were about to enforce an arrest warrant against him.
Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis, and other cities across the nation have exploded since the killing. Riots and looting have been reported in multiple areas as Black Lives Matter and Antifa domestic terrorists exact their revenge on innocent store owners. Meanwhile, police in mostly Democratic-run cities have done little to stop the anarchy.
It seems to be a repeat of the events a year ago following the release of bodycam footage showing the death of George Floyd, also in the Minneapolis area. The parallels are striking with a Black man being arrested, resisting, and then being accidentally killed by a White police officer. Things may start getting much worse with the verdict from the Derek Chauvin trial coming soon.
What Ben & Jerry’s fails to understand is the necessity for law and order to be maintained by sound enforcement processes. There are always going to be tragic mistakes, often with fatal consequences, that are made by police officers who are constantly faced with difficult situations as they try to preserve the peace. But the notion that this is an issue of systemic racism, which the radical left has been pushing as the narrative for a long time, is simply not true. Racism in law enforcement has been steadily declining over the decades. Today, we have the least amount of documented racism in law enforcement than any time in history.
Some on Twitter ridiculed them.

Damani Felder promoted Blue Bell, saying, “Reason #6,329,731 why Blue Bell ice cream will always be better. Ben & Jerry’s is run by virtue signaling, low energy, self-hating, social justice warrior cucks.”

This isn’t about Daunte Wright, George Floyd, or even the police themselves. This is about pressing a Neo-Marxist ideology to become the driving tenets of the land. If radical extremists like Ben & Jerry’s get their way, law enforcement would be replaced with legal counselors who act more like unarmed social workers to try to diffuse situations rather than stop crimes. It’s a ludicrous notion prima facie, but if we’ve learned anything in recent years, it’s that the radical left seek solutions that have no backing in reality or common sense.
Ben & Jerry’s should have already been on every patriotic American’s boycott list. If it wasn’t before, it must be now. They want to tear down the nation and every cone of theirs that we eat contributes to our own destruction.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report has appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. One of our YouTube accounts was banned and another has been suspended. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancelation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects. These questions are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting cancelled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $5300 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
