Local Indian tribes are now squabbling over who should get the "stolen land" at Ben & Jerry's headquarters ๐Ÿ˜‚
ยท Jul 15, 2023 ยท NottheBee.com

Earlier this month Ben & Jerry's decided to take a stunning and brave moral stand by parroting the exact same stupid thing that liberals have been saying ever since America turned into Clown Land:

A local Indian chief responded to this claim by telling the ice cream company: "All right! Pony up!"

And now the whole thing has devolved into just an embarrassing squabble between competing indigenous groups:

Chief Rick O'Bomsawin of the Quebec-based Abenaki Bank Council of Odanak told The Post that if Ben & Jerry's plans to return land to Indigenous tribes, it should be his group that receives it.

"This is my territory," the Canada-based chief told The Post on Friday. "The territory that they're speaking of is actually my people's territory. That territory is our homeland."

O'Bomsawin's comments came in response to recent claims put forth by Vermont-based Nulhegan Ban of the Coosuk Abenaki Nation, whose chief has said it would be interested in seeing the return of the land.

Ben & Jerry's looking out their corporate windows right now:

Actually this is a really useful controversy. High-minded liberal white people like Ben and Jerry have very much convinced themselves that Native Americans are a kind of super-race of noble, virtuous Good People, elevated above the petty partisan snarling and snapping that marks the rest of humanity.

Of course they're not. Indians are like everyone else. They always have been. They were like this when Europeans got here and they're still like it. It's just normal. Nothing scandalous about it.

How these two tribes will resolve this dispute is unclear. Of course, it's unlikely to matter at all anyway. I highly doubt Ben & Jerry's is going to give up its corporate headquarters to anybody, despite all their virtue signaling.

Don Stevens, chief of the Nulhegan Band of the Coosuk Abenaki Nation, meanwhile, seems to think there's a chance:

Stevens told The Post in an interview last week that he "looks forward to any kind of correspondence with the brand to see how they can better benefit Indigenous people."

Maybe they should just fight over it? Or is that ... wait ... ๐Ÿค”
