I've never liked their ultra-Left politics. Consequently, I never buy their products but, for those of you who do buy their product(s), you may want to read the following.

From https://powerhousene...w-enforcement/:


    Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream calls to defund all police
    As the radical left calls to completely rid this nation of law enforcement officers, Democrat leaders are all too happy to take the bait.
    Multiple leftist mayors across the nation have already announced their decisions to defund their cities’ police departments. Ironically, though, powerful Democrats who support the Defund the Police crowd have yet to scrap their own security details. That, in and of itself is both telling and hypocritical.
    Ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s is one of the latest figures to support defunding the police. Townhall reports that on Juneteenth, the ice cream company published anti-police messages on their Twitter feed and website.
    Ben & Jerry’s has chosen to support the debunked and leftist narrative that law enforcement is dangerous and racist. Taking to their Twitter feed, the company called to “defund the police” and “defend” the African-American community.
    Defund the police, defend Black communities! This #Juneteenth, it’s more important than ever that we dismantle the racist and ineffective model of American policing. Learn more about how defunding the police works and why we so desperately need it: https://t.co/JLY6f0u5y3 pic.twitter.com/3UnML38dDx
    Ben & Jerry's (@benandjerrys) June 19, 2020
    After then branding law enforcement as “racist and ineffective,” Ben & Jerry’s stated that policing in the United States ought to be “dismantled” altogether.
    The above tweet is bad enough, but the anti-police content on Ben & Jerry’s website is even worse. There, the ice cream company branded law enforcement as bad at crime-solving, yet “good at racism.”
    Today, we honor the Movement for Black Lives and people all around the country taking to the streets and participating digitally to demand justice. Learn more at https://t.co/XDaGZfxKoI #M4BL #SixNineteen https://t.co/3nY2rSaxcl
    Shortly thereafter, Ben & Jerry’s went on to assert that investing in communities should happen instead of incarcerating individuals who commit crimes.
    It’s too bad that Ben & Jerry’s doesn’t understand — or simply doesn’t care — that these two actions are not mutually exclusive. People can — and should — invest in communities while also allowing law enforcement to stop and lock up dangerous individuals who pose threats to communities.

Folks:

   A friend just sent me the following E-mail, which makes the sisuation even more interesting.

Gary

 

"Dear Gary,
FYI:  (see also:  https://www.benjerry...t-us#4timeline)
Big Changes,August 3, 2000:
    Ben & Jerry’s becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary of Unilever. Through a unique acquisition agreement, an independent Board of Directors is created to provide leadership focused on preserving and expanding Ben & Jerry's social mission, brand integrity, and product quality. We call them the B.O.D. (Which means we really like them.)
    So, it's not just Ben & Jerry's that's a problem. Unilever needs to take some responsibility here."

Sad to say I went to the same high school as B&J. They were liberal assholes back then.

I just read NYC has slashed the police budget by 1 billion (wow that's a lot a dough). The one council member who was against it stated there were 72 shootings last week and not one by a NYPD officer. Glad I don't live there.
