Well, Black Rifle Coffee, that was stupid, wasn't it?... "We do not support Kyle Rittenhouse or his legal defense efforts".

    So my take away from the "Drinkin' Bro's" video was in essence, "if you know us you get it, if you love America and coffee you'll buy our stuff, if you don't you're a stupid cunt (their words)" I don't know why they keep talking.
    Personally I don't give a shit what your politics are until you use your business or celebrity to promote them, then if I disagree with you I use my wallet to do so. I bought their product because I supported the message. I'll move on because I don't, stupid cunt or not. After this last four years I can't stomach giving money to blue anything any more, sure would have liked to see some 2a donations in there. But really what saddened me was their jumping on the bash Kyle band wagon, I'm sure that poor kid idolised them and felt betrayed.


    I didn't have much of an opinion after the primary incident and I was open minded heading into that podcast.

    But the podcast reaffirmed my gut feeling from the very beginning: they should have said nothing, did nothing after the photo and they should empower the CEO to be the sole representative for this conversation moving forward.

    I agree, I was with them distancing themselves from that photo, Kyle's lawyer needs a nut kick for that. But that should have been the only word on it and move on. They just keep fucking themselves now. You don't need to get into a dick measuring contest with people that don't have to spend their money with your product.

    figures, who makes bets like that? No one

    Again, seeing what the aircrew would bet, 100$ is chump change. And if the bet also had a humilation component to the loser, that what makes it fun. And if you did lose, are YOU the guy with NO integrity that would duck out on a losting bet?

    But then again, I bet you were never in the service and spent time with people like fighter pilots or special forces. So...

    yup, 100%....i would absolutely maintain my integrity by not donating to a communist who hates america and wants to actively destroy it.....ide donate that money to St. Judes or the Shriners childrens hospital.....and none of your "special forces" friends would bitch about it.

    stop trying to justify their bullshit...they are leftists who pulled the wool over your eyes because they sell coffee with a gun on the bag, so clearly they support the 2A....even though their actions clearly prove they dont.

    also, stop the "you were never in the service" bit.....that shit doesnt work around here.

    You're upset that you were not the one who lost the bet?

    Big difference between the two examples. But telling where your mind went. My first two years as a Navy officer was in an F-14D squadron readyroom. And someone losing a bet and having to write a $100 check to Obama would have been a penny ante compared to some of the shenanigans I watched and/or participated in.
    Being a seaman did the above bring back memories?
    I'd never bet to donate to a Manchurian candidate.
    The real point requested a flyby on the tower and you were still in the bunk.

    Seems to me like they fucked up their response when what they really wanted to do was say "hey, we didn't pay to put that shirt on the kid. We aren't the kinds of people that want to turn a profit off a shitty situation."

    I think Johnny B did a great analysis on this. Bro vet culture isn't the same as 2A culture, and it's showing.

    That being said if you're gonna go back to Folger's over this to spite them, then you may be cutting off you nose to spite your face. Do we really want to get into where Nestle's (or any large corporation's) money goes?

    All I have to say is if you are neutral you are part of the problem.
    This is exactly what the politicians have wanted to instill within the populace. Congratulations. Dividing the population so the desired groups can be either propped up, or put down depending on the political need.

    Their coffee never was that good, but hey they are pro 2A and pro American values.

    Aaaand now it’s a company that makes coffee which doesn’t taste good, and they are a shitty company now too.

    When all you HAD going for you was the illusion of the “lifestyle” and you decide to take a big ol’ dump all over that, well I’ll just keep buying from the local hippie roaster, their product tastes good and they just stick to roasting beans.

    If I’m feeding my espresso machine something from a super market, this stuff is good, and turns out they donated to Trump

    We are way beyond ever being a united people. One political party and all it’s supporters are evil while the other party’s leadership is evil with good people supporting them. This repeats all over the planet with the left and right. What a crazy world.

    do you feel very united right now?

    more importantly.....do you want to be united right now?....

    you literally have near 1/2 the country that thinks that a 17yr old should have let a pedo, a woman abuser, and a felon murder him in the street......are those the people you want to "unite" with?

    [beware of sarcasm mixed in below]

    No, Karen, I don't feel united because we 2A supporters and other patriotic Americans are at each other's throats because of bullshit, autistic screeching threads like this one.

    Yes, Karen, I would like to have a 326,700,000 person united front against the Uniparty (political class, left or right, which gives ZERO fucks about us).

    No, Karen, I don't want to unite with the scourge of society. They, the people that actually believe what you typed, are maybe not even 1% of the population (3,300,000). they just happen to have the loudest voice thanks to the neo-marxist POS's that were elected.

    You guys get just as easily offended (purposely offended?) as the libs.

    They did a stupid thing and I do my best to support 2A companies and avoid those with 'hair'. I support Kyle, I'm sure everyone here does as well and people in this thread are correct, we need to be unified regardless because our rights matter

    No, I don't own Troy anything because, well, because. I have a backbone, thanks for your concern. You do whatever you want with your money, and I'll do whatever I want with mine. Petty insults are the tool of the defeated whose position is crumbling, btw.

    Hi,

    I find it pretty funny when guys start demanding 100% loyalty in regards to "You are with us or against us", lolol.........

    I can be totally against something without being completely for something in the manner you want me to be for it......that is just life. You are lying to yourself if you think otherwise.

    In regards to companies in the firearms and defense industries as to where they stand on certain things. Well they get to make that choice as it is only theirs to make. Don't bitch about cancel culture from the Dems side yet call for lynching of a company that is 90% your side.

    Where was the outrage and calls for boycotts of FLIR, L3, BAE Systems, Glock, S&W, etc etc for illegal actions in violation of ITAR agreements? Most by giving over sensitive information to Chinese "contractors" aka agents?

    Where was the outrage when CEO of S&W and Glock were arrested at 2010 Shot Show for arranging to illegally supply arms to Nigerian rebels aka modern day Boko Haram??

    What a stellar, well articulated, response. 👌 best I've read all day on the interwebss
    Well yea, duh. On the interweb we can all do and be who we want. Sitting around on our keyboards and phones stating our opinions on
    a coffee mfg company and how they may or may not have handled some scenario correctly/incorrectly.

    Circle dah jerk next? Mentally masturbating has always been the best choice when things go south. We the keyboard commandos need to strut our stuff.

    this thread shows exactly why the Dems run circles around the repubs

    repubs fight about a company (good or bad..its not the point), preaching from the hilltops

    yet the dems would push the name/company to the side and unite against a true common foe like trump, rifles, etc

    members will curse BRCC or whomever the newest target is, yet still have: which means you still suport

    facebook account, Instagram social media in general (anti everything)

    Use google or chrome or Siri (tracking and selling your habits to the highest bidder)

    Buy from Amazon (anti everything)

    Use microsoft products (which refused to help develop software for the military with AR/VR, a few years ago)

    Apple who refused to crack open a Iphone that was used in a mass killing, when asked by the FBI and LE

    Does anyone work in a place that buys goods from china, or takes drugs that raw materials that are mfg in china

    Maybe you should quit your job and stop taking medicine because you are supporting china

    ill just stop there for now...

    The left wins because they aren’t hamstrung by rules and morals. They lie, cheat, and steal their way to victory. Unfortunately to have a chance in the game we will have to do the same. Many of you in this thread don’t seem to understand this. There is no cause to unite half the country with the other. It’s a divide to wide to bridge. We are divided. Pick a side and fight at all costs for it. Time for compromise is over.

    As far is Black Coffee and Rittenhouse goes, if you aren’t in support of him then you are on the side opposite of me. He stands for firearm ownership and the right to protect ones life. Oppose that and you are done as far as I’m concerned.

    Lots of their stuff almost seemed like they pumped extra caffeine into it, or some chemical like flavored something.

    Someone at work brought that one with a skull on it, just nasty, another buddy drinks the one with the MD500 on it, less nasty but nope as well

    I tried coffee way back when I was in my late teens and early twenties. Did not like it and never have drank it. I like the smell of it in the morning with bacon, sausage and eggs cooking. But since the kids have moved out the wife is the only one that will drink it. So I make a pot for the wife every morning while cooking breakfast

    @TacticalDillhole serious question, how do you prepare your BRCoffee and what have you compared it to? Which one is your favorite and can you explain what makes it the best out there to you?
