Gov. DeSantis Strikes Back At Radical Ice Cream Maker Ben and Jerry’s Over Their Latest Political Stunt

Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream seems increasingly more interested in getting political than churning out ice cream.

Once again, the radical owners of the liberal ice cream company have inserted themselves into foreign affairs – this time by refusing to sell their ice cream in parts of Israel over the Palestinian conflict.

But Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis has a little trick up his sleeve to hold the radical ice cream duo responsible for their crazy politics.

Breitbart reported that Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has put Ben & Jerry’s and its British manufacturer Unilever on a state watch list for its decision to stop the sale of its products in “disputed territories” in and around Israel.

The move to take a pro-Palestinian stance led DeSantis to send a letter on Thursday to the State Board of Administration to ask it to “immediately place Ben & Jerry’s and Unilever on the Continued Examination Companies that Boycott Israel List.”

The list is part of a state law passed in 2016 that gives companies 90 days to “cease the boycott of Israel in order to avoid qualifying for investment prohibition.”

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

Here is communist Ben and Jerry’s response:

“We believe it is inconsistent with our values for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT),” Ben & Jerry’s said in a statement released on Monday.

The radical ice cream company says that it would continue to sell products in Israel through “a different arrangement.”

But Florida Rep. Randy Fine said Florida has the right to boycott any companies that boycott Israel.

Fine said despite the “boycott” being aimed at only part of Israel, it still triggers the state law he sponsored.

I honestly don’t know how Ben and Jerry’s stays in business when there are a lot of other ice cream companies out there that have an equal, even better product and don’t impose their politics on everyone.

Anyway, good for DeSantis for calling these commies out and placing them on a “watch list.” God knows the left has all of us on a slew of “lists.”
