'Defund the CBC' Clothing & Coffee is a hit for many Canadians
"We are adding a NEW coffee to our lineup," writes the official Resistance Coffee Facebook page. "DEFUND THE CBC is a single-origin brazil roast. This is a true crowd-pleaser. Raise a cup to the demise of the Fake News CBC!"
For 16 dollars, one can get a 340g bag of either whole bean or ground DEFUND THE CBC coffee, flavored with tasting notes of walnuts, chocolate and red fruit. 10% of every purchase "goes to non-profits fighting for the constitutional freedoms of Canadians," the site reports. The website also remarks that "We love free speech, [we are] not so crazy about propaganda. This coffee is roasted in protest of the government-funded fake news CBC."
The site also sells "Defund the CBC" shirts.

The article was subsequently deleted and reuploaded with additional information where Ben notes that the controversial segment was referring to "a grotesque dystopia in which I have to be at war with my friends and family. People I love.
