For those unaware, ACAB means “All Cops Are Bastards.”
A Seattle brewer, Mirage, has taken the liberty of printing that message to the bottom of its cans.
Mirage owner Michael Dempster wrote, “I used the markings because I stand against institutional racism, of which modern policing is a militarized arm.”
Interesting he holds this view when the outgoing Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best is black. He might not know that Mayor Jenny Durkan made a point in 2019 of ensuring 39% of new recruits entering the Seattle PD were minorities. So much for institutional racism, unless he means that it is biased against whites?!
We wonder if the mob ends up vandalizing the brewery, will the cops prioritize a call out with the reciprocal respect shown the them?
Somehow the brewer thinks it is taking the moral high ground.
Common sense can literally be a mirage. Or is it cynically hijacking a cause to hopefully sell more beer to college kids and snowflakes?
