I've never drank Black Rifle Coffee but I've been to strip clubs and from what little I can remember...I enjoyed them. FWIW...the best strip clubs I've ever been in were in Washington, DC. and nobody seemed to care whether the girls were Democrat or Republican. Carry on.

I'm sure they were all working just to pay their way through college.

I'm pretty sure they were making more money than I was back then. American University, Georgetown and George Washington University were all within a few miles of each other.

When I was young and hit those establishments the strippers were always "only working there to pay for their college."

They might have been telling the truth. A 3 credit class at American cost $1500 back then. Some could make that in a day. Today? They better be doing more than dancing....

Why are there idiots on here that cannot figure out the "quotes" are bunch of cut-clipped sentences (devoid of context or additional narrative by Hafer) sprinkled in amongst a bunch of bull**** the NYT author wrote??? The OP article posted for the thread is an opinionated summation of cut-clips from that garbage article. Not exactly prime source material! BRCC is not a damn political organization. They are pro-America, pro-constitution, pro-vet COFFEE company. Not wanting to be tied to every right-wing siren call seems unreasonable for a coffee business??? Are Businesses now required to be Rep/Dem echo chambers? Moderates do not exist anymore?

"No party".... no S***! 300 million people are not defined by two distinct parties. Evan doesn't let a political party tell him what he needs to think..... like anyone else with a damn brain!!!

People are making the same mistakes the NYT author made: twisting and manipulating something into their own imaginary interpretation, in order to fit it into a particular narrative.

In an age where masculinity is villanized, these guys stand up for it proudly. Coffee, guns, whisky, and bikini snaps need no political affiliation to be awesome. Freedom the **** On Black Rifle!!!
This is the best post in the whole thread.

The only reason to ever agree to an interview with the NYT is either you want to appeal to their readers or you're woefully naive. So which one is it? Considering he was a CIA contractor I would bet it's not the latter.

Marketing with "Coffee, guns, whisky, and bikini snaps" is not masculinity, it's selling a shallow caricature of it. No different than buying a pair of Nike "Equality" editions to show how tolerant you are. Corporations love identity politics because they can sell an identity as a consumable, it requires no principles or sacrifice on the part of the customer, and ultimately feels empty, which makes them even better customers as you can simply sell them more stuff to attempt to fill the emptiness.

They’ve been playing the game for years on Social media and riding the veteran card for about 10 years.

Evan Hafer was just on Rogan if any cares to get his more in depth take on things.
Thanks for the heads-up.

I've been thinking lately that (IMHO) many issues, especially those that people argue about, are complicated. Nuance is almost dead, and we are often too busy, distracted, etc. to investigate or think through topics with the time that may be needed to see the level of complexity. And I don't see as many people ask "but what if I'm wrong?" So I decided to listen, and while it runs about 3 hours, I'm about 2/3 through it, and it's been pretty interesting. They cover the NYT article and reaction thereto, but a lot more.

My local gas station coffee is far better than anything ive tried from BRC
this thread got me to buy a box of their version of K-pods in an attempt to make the keurig we have a useful appliance rather than a dust collector taking up counter space.... it was successful in that regard... most keurig coffee sucks, the BRC i got is not bad.... better than any gas station coffee i have had, but will admit it's probably been a decade since getting gas station/convenience store coffee.... if/when it comes to that, those establishments have plenty of redbull on the shelves ;)

i'm going to order some more and some of their instant coffee to try this week.... starbucks is my current baseline for instant, and there is plenty of room for improvement there.... if you make strong coffee with starbucks instant, it still tastes like instant coffee.... doesn't matter that much in the mountains, but if there's a better option...

my first impressions were better than bad
