Woke ice cream manufacturer Ben & Jerry’s received a backlash after demanding that the UK accept more illegal boat migrants in yet another example of a corporation trying to push its far-left political agenda.
The company drew attention to the increasingly alarming situation on the south coast of England, where around 4,000 migrants have arrived illegally by boat in 2020 so far.
Having paid off criminal people smugglers, the migrants are given a de facto taxi service by UK border authorities to the mainland and put up in hotels at taxpayer expense.
“Hey @PritiPatel we think the real crisis is our lack of humanity for people fleeing war, climate change and torture. We pulled together a thread for you,” tweeted the company.
“People wouldn’t make dangerous journeys if they had any other choice. The UK hasn’t resettled any refugees since March, but wars and violence continue. What we need is more safe and legal routes,” Ben & Jerry’s said in a follow up tweet.
Comcast and its subsidiary Xfinity has banned Republican congressional candidate Laura Loomer from sending out texts and emails to voters in what appears to be yet another example of Big Tech election meddling.
“See video. Wow. @Xfinity/@comcast has BANNED Republican front-runner Laura Loomer from sending texts & emails to voters. This is next-level censorship,” tweeted Fox News host Pete Hegseth.
“When she wins the @gop primary on Tuesday, will the Republican Party fight for her? They’d better!”
Coffee giant Starbucks has designed a Black Lives Matter shirt for employees – the only problem is they’re produced in Haiti by black workers who routinely suffer workers’ rights abuses.
The new design includes an image of protest signs with slogans such as, “No Justice, No Peace,” “Unity!” and, “It’s not a moment, it’s a movement,” a quote from the musical “Hamilton.”
The front of the shirt features the BLM communist fist symbol, complete with fingernail polish, presumably a nod to the Black Trans Lives Matter movement.
The corporate and left-wing media completely ignored the story last month about a 24-year old mother, Jessica Whitaker, who was killed by Black Lives Matter supporters in Indianapolis, Indiana after an alleged argument over the term “All Lives Matter.”
Analysis by the nonpartisan bias-checker Ground News, which tracks coverage of news stories and assigns a “bias rating” to stories based on coverage or lack of coverage from partisan media, found that national coverage of the story came nearly exclusively from right-wing or center-right publications.
As Breitbart News reported, the story was originally reported by local media, but went largely ignored by the national press until it was picked up by the Gateway Pundit.

A Caribbean Kentucky Fried Chicken Instagram post used a culturally insensitive stereotype of fried chicken symbolizing black “emancipation,” that was publicly flayed as some social media users were left dumbstruck by the supportive message.
KFC Trinidad and Tobago posted a picture of a fried chicken drumstick casting a shadow of the black liberation fist in the background to confer support for “emancipation” as the Black Lives Matter movement continues to enjoy international backing across the Western world and beyond.
The post, given its tone deaf message, was taken down from the corporation’s Instagram page, as the world-renowned fried chicken restaurant chain partook in the Emancipation Day celebrations held in the Caribbean country every August 1.
Shoppers who refuse to wear a face mask to visit Walmart will still be served, as the company seeks to protect its staff from “a physical confrontation,” according to a CNN report.
Walmart had announced that as of July 20, face masks would be compulsory for all but those whose medical conditions prevent it, as Business Insider’s Hayley Peterson reported. At least 27 other retailers have recently required the same thing.
However, a training video seen by CNN tells management to let people who refuse to wear a mask “continue to shop.”
Home Depot, Lowe’s, CVS, and Walgreens have also said they’ll serve customers without masks, CNN reported.
Roger Goodell and the NFL have talked the talk … and now, they’re starting to walk the walk — pledging to donate a quarter of a billion dollars to fight social injustice.
The NFL confirmed through its website it will make the $250 million donation throughout the next 10 years.
The money will go toward charities and organizations designed to “combat systemic racism and support the battle against injustices faced by African Americans.”
The NFL report also says the league would be willing to work with Colin Kaepernick on social justice initiatives.

A new ad for fast-food chain Burger King claims bovine flatulence is making the earth hotter, a notion previously addressed in the radical left’s Green New Deal proposals.
“Cow farts & burps are no laughing matter,” states the ad promoted on social media. “They release methane, contributing to climate change. That’s why we’re working to change our cows’ diet by adding lemongrass to reduce their emissions by approximately 33%.”
The burger giant plans to launch their new burgers in select liberal cities.
“Whopper sandwiches with reduced methane emissions beef to be sold, while supplies last, at select US restaurants in Austin, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City and Portland.”
The company’s goal of reducing cow fart emissions is in line with the far left’s stated plan to reduce “emissions from cows,” as stated in a “Green New Deal FAQ” 10-year plan that appeared on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) congressional website in February 2019.
An adviser for Ocasio-Cortez initially told Tucker Carlson the document in question had been fabricated, telling the Fox News host, “We never would and AOC has never said anything like that… I think you’re referring to some sort of document, some sort of doctored document that someone else has been circulating.”

If you are adamant about not wearing a mask, you are not going to like this news one bit.
Coming into this week, Costco, Starbucks, Best Buy and Panera Bread were requiring customers to wear masks to come into their stores, but most other major retailers were still giving people the freedom to choose whether they wanted to wear a mask or not.
I know that a lot of people appreciated this freedom to choose, but it is about to come to an abrupt end.
On Wednesday, Walmart and Kroger announced that they will be starting to require consumers to wear masks in all of their stores, and the National Retail Federation is pushing all of the rest of their members to do the same thing.
The NBA store is refusing to sell jerseys emblazoned with the words ‘Free Hong Kong’, but is perfectly happy to sell ‘Kill Cops’ shirts.
“I’m on the phone with the NBA store right now,” tweeted David Hookstead. “Sales rep says I can’t buy a FreeHongKong jersey, but I can buy a KillCops jersey if I want one.”
Audio of a phone call posted by Hookstead appears to confirm that buyers can choose to have their jersey say ‘Kill Cops’ but not ‘Free Hong Kong’ at the point of purchase.
