Ben & Jerry’s Untimely Embrace of Linda Sarsour

Ice cream is now controversial. Welcome to America in 2018.

Ben & Jerry’s, which has supported liberal causes throughout its history, likely did not anticipate the criticism and talk of boycotts that followed its announcement of a new, limited-time flavor to be sold in its “scoop shops.”

People aren’t upset about the ingredient mix in “Pecan Resist.” But they are disappointed that the Women’s March is one of four activist groups that will receive proceeds from its sales.

Ben & Jerry’s says that it selected the groups because they are “working on the front lines of the peaceful resistance, building a world that supports their values.” But the values of Women’s March leaders, especially anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour — who was photographed with founders Ben Cohen, Jerry Greenfield, and others for the Pecan Resist announcement — don’t fit Ben & Jerry’s own ideals.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
