Black Rifle Coffee's CEO Responds to the
Social Media Furor Over His New York Times
Magazine Interview

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 7/20/2021 12:50:51 AM

Last week, the CEO of Black Rifle Coffee, Evan Hafer, gave a long-form interview to Jason Zengerle for the New York Times Magazine. I don’t know what he expected to achieve by the exercise, but I’m pretty certain that what he accomplished represented a significant deviation from the plan. The piece framed Black Rifle Coffee as a “Starbucks for conservatives” and promoted the piece by saying that the company was trying to distance itself from some of its customers. Note that Black Rifle Coffee retweeted this tweet and that usually means that the tweet met with the approval of the person sending it:

My impression is that these guys are trying to ride the fence here, and playing both sides in the hopes that they can walk back the worst of this. This is not the first time Evan Hafer has stepped in a big, sloppy mess. What he should have done is avoid the NYSlimes like the plague, as anyone who has been paying any attention for the past 20 years would know. He said what he said, and he is going to have to own that. What he ended up doing is pissing off a huge number of his customer base with his careless characterizations. He stepped in it before over his abandonment of Kyle Ritterhouse, and now he is trying to redirect his own words. What he is doing is acting like a weasel here, and he richly deserves the derision he is receiving. Gateway Pundit took some license yesterday, and did some embellishing of their own. The fact remains, however, that BRC probably believes all that crap about insurrection and the Capitol Riots, and thinks that people on the right were there to overthrow the government or some such BS. These people have been putting on a big tough guy act for years with their words and videos, but in the end, it just appears to be more theater. Stick to making coffee, Evan, and STxU.

Talk about shooting yourself in the foot, and then trying to dig yourself out!!! A conservative should never talk to the NY Time-waster. They are going to spin your words however they want. But if you give them ammo to do that easier, don't be shocked with what the final results are.

I prepare a blend of Dunkin Donuts with Folger Black Silk - we have a delicious cup of coffee every time. A very small pinch of salt before brewing. Cold filtered water. Ninja coffee maker.

Blocking Kurt Schlichter says it all for me. That said, I never, ever drink coffee, so this is just theoretical for me, never would be a customer under any circumstances, anyway. But this guy seems to have really done a bad job of dealing with 'PR' managing to anger a huge piece of his customer base. That is always stupid.

'How much longer?' Hafer and his brand are dead to me now. I hope Black Rifle goes belly up - and soon. Remaining neutral can work but it takes work. It sounds as if Hafer only pretended to defend our side of the aisle and now his true feelings have now been exposed. I feel confident that lefftists were never responsible for any brand success and they treat turncoats just like we do - hang 'em

FTA: The question is, how much longer will Black Rifle Coffee’s customers continue to take Hafer at his word?... There was a niche in the coffee market,they are attempting to fill so they are play-acting like Patriots is a marketing ploy in its entirety, methinks...I'm Done!

I don't drink coffee, so this means pretty much zilch to me. But I saw something in the article that boiled my blood. Some people in the DOD think the image of St. Michael trampling Satan is a symbol of white supremacy?!!! What fresh hell is this! I am a Catholic and I say the St. Michael prayer every day. I wear the St. Michael medal and those SJW idiots will never take it from me.

Full disclosure, I have a subscription to BRC for over a year now. It's the best coffee for me that isn't bitter. I'm cutting this guy some slack. I remember Rush saying that when he was beginning to do interviews after a few years in radio, he thought his audience loved him, so will the media. And boy was he wrong. Don't you remember how they double crossed him?!? How THEY tried to mix his words and tried to make him sound inept? Lighten up a little....

Agree with #6. Filling a niche doesn't necessarily mean the management has a philosophical kinship with whatever the market they are playing to. I have to admit though BRC actually provides a good product and this puts them head and shoulders above veterans who shill cheap sunglasses and frying pans.

This is what happens when instinctual conservatives without an ideological, intellectual or historical conservative foundation try to be one of the cool kids with the mass media prom committee. Your values start getting manipulated and you get played like a violin by the best propagandists to ever have walked the earth. Time to start listening to some Prager or reading some Mark Steyn, Mr. Hafer. At this point, you're nothing more than an extreme hobbyist -- like a fanatic golfer or dog owner. That doesn't make you a conservative. In the meantime, get bent.

Well #13 - BRC did play to a specific market - Americans who love their country and veterans so if you're going to pitch to a certain group then your management should back it up. in words and actions. BTW - one of these veterans a few years ago who was pitching those cheap sunglasses was doing it because he needed the income after being somewhat limited in employment options for his role in the Benghazi attacks and his criticism of Obama and Hillary Clinton. That veteran is Kris “Tanto” Paronto. Sad to see Pete Hegseth on Fox this weekend interview Evan and no questions about his interview.

Hafer could have distanced himself from extremists by simply saying "we don't condone extremists of any stripe, nor are we responsible for the behavior of every individual who wears our clothing" referred all future questions to that statement, and gone back to roasting coffee. Instead, he decided to mouth off to the Slimes (probably in hopes of expanding his customer base), stepped in it, and is trying desperately to unsay what he said. As for the question from the article, "how much longer will Black Rifle Coffee’s customers continue to take Hafer at his word?" The answer from my DH came yesterday - he cancelled his Black Rifle subscription.

The fact that his has a liberal organization like ActBlue, a Dem company that funnels money to BLM, to manage his IT and social media is the nail in the coffin. He is a rino at best and a liberal in sheep's clothing at worst. I've never seen one of their shops but I surely wouldn't purchase their coffee or merchandise. If you want to support veterans find a good organization and give directly to them. Don't feed the Beast is my personal recommendation.

Who was the steroid laden, tattooed, military wannabe trying to distance himself from, paying customers? If I owned a truck dealership and a snowflake electric car driver came in, wanted a gas guzzling pickup I'd sell it to them, take their money and tell them to tell all their friends. You are not in business to choose your customers but attract and please them. Who knows what BRC owner intended but it was not success that's for sure.

We are in a war for survival with the communist death democrats who want to strip us of all of our rights and property. No cutting slack for Black Rifle Coffee. Their words and actions speak what they are really all about. No more compromises with the enemy and that means no more Black Rifle Coffee.

I absolutely love that the left has defined St. Michael the Archangel as “white supremacy.” Not because it is, but because it means that that particular, very powerful message of good crushing evil is getting to them. They KNOW, on some level, that THEY are the evil, and they are afraid. And so, they should be.

FTA: Think about that. An iconic Biblical figure, the angel who will lead the forces of Good to its final victory over Evil (see Revelation 12:7-9), is labeled an extremist symbol by some toad in the Pentagon, and the company immediately kowtows. He can claim the NYTimes interview has been misinterpreted but there's no misinterpreting the fact his company dropped the St. Michael design to appease leftists.

Yes, people have to make a living, and fronting a product is a way to earn bucks. Just understand one’s background and experience may lead some to equate glasses for GIs, which are ballistics upwards of $200.00 retail, with glasses for $19.95 though not specifically stated. As to veterans and political leanings remember one-third of the military voted for Obama in 2012. The military is not a monolithic conservative voting block.

Biden said, “The idea you need a weapon that can have the ability to fire 20, 30, 40, 50, 120 shots from that weapon, whether it’s a 9mm pistol or whether it’s a rifle, is ridiculous. I’m continuing to push to eliminate the sale of those things.” Up until now, Biden has pushed “assault weapons” ban legislation and moved executively to have the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) take regulatory action

As we reported earlier, Joe Biden’s CNN town hall did not go well. He completely lost his mind, talked about aliens, praised Xi Jing Ping, and told several lies. But other than that, great job! But one lie he told was just so shocking, in light of what we know, it deserved to be highlighted with a post all its own, for how breathtakingly false it was. Biden has spent months focused on pitching vaccinations. Despite that, he failed to meet his vaccination goals. But when he spoke about vaccinations on the town hall he said something shockingly untrue. Talk about misinformation. This is a big honking example of that, right here.

Craig, who retired June 1 after working more than four decades in law enforcement, is seen by many in the GOP as the early favorite to win the party's nomination to challenge Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in 2022. A formal announcement of a campaign for governor with events and rallies will likely occur after Labor Day, a statement announcing the formation of the Chief James Craig for Governor Exploratory Committee said.

Lansing, Mich. – Republican lawmakers on Wednesday killed a law that underpinned coronavirus restrictions issued by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in 2020, wiping it from the books after Michigan's Supreme Court declared the measure unconstitutional. The Democrat is powerless to veto the citizen-initiated bill. A conservative group that organized the ballot drive next plans to target a public health law that enabled Whitmer's administration to keep intact capacity restrictions and mask requirements for eight additional months until voluntarily lifting them in June after infections subsided amid vaccinations. The GOP-led House voted 60-48 to repeal the 1945 law, with four Democrats joining all Republicans in support.

Eric Dean Wilson, an instructor and graduate student at City University of New York, wrote about how air conditioning will destroy the planet. His essay demonstrates the confluence of such intellectually fashionable ideas as environmentalist extremism, critical race theory, equity, and the condemnation of capitalism and “white supremacy.” Wilson has no training in climate science or mechanical engineering.
