Tribal Chief Wants Stolen Land Returned from Ben & Jerry’s

Tribal Chief Wants Stolen Land Returned from Ben & Jerry’s

July 10, 2023

John Nolte at Breitbart News reports that Don Stevens, chief of the Nulhegan Band of the Coosuk Abenaki Nation, would like the colonialists known as Ben & Jerry to return their stolen land.

Just one week after Ben & Jerry issued a smug 4th of July proclamation demanding that everyone return land stolen from the Native Americans, starting with Mount Rushmore, the chief of a tribe descended from the Indian “nation that originally controlled the land in Vermont the Ben & Jerry’s headquarters is located on would be interested in taking it back,” Newsweek reported.

Chief Stevens told Newsweek it was “always interested in reclaiming the stewardship of our lands,” but that Ben & Jerry’s had yet to approach them.

Nolte writes,

The imperialist Ben & Jerry thought they could use the 4th of July to troll America with white guilt through virtue signaling and that they could do so without paying any kind of price. Like most leftists, they simply assumed their virtue was pristine. Well, what do you know… Now these two idiots are in a real pickle. They can either return this stolen land or get laughed at for the rest of their natural lives because this incident is going to stick like glue.

To be clear, this whole “land back” movement is stupid. Somewhere in the past, the Abenaki probably stole their land from another tribe. The tribe who lost that land to the Abenaki probably stole the land themselves. The white man did not introduce slavery, genocide, or land theft to the American Indian. People are people. Indians are people. All kinds of terrible things happened before we arrived, including land theft. So who do we return the land to? Who originally owned it? It’s all so dumb.
