Ben and Jerry’s was founded by Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield. In 2000 it was sold to Unilever, no doubt for several hundreds of millions of dollars. We are guessing that Cohen and Greenfield took their money and no longer have anything to do with Ben and Jerry’s. At least we hope that’s the case.
Of late, Ben and Jerry’s created a new flavour ice cream called Pecan Resist “celebrating activists who are continuing to resist oppression, harmful environmental practices and injustice.” One of the organizations receiving the grant was the 2017 Women’s March, which was partially founded by Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory — both vocal and virulent antisemites.
At the Islamic Society of North America convention this past September, Sarsour called for people to stop humanizing Israelis. Sarsour’s co-chair, Mallory, is also an antisemite, and a vocal supporter of Louis Farrakhan, the virulently antisemitic Nation of Islam leader. On Instagram, Mallory posed alongside Farrakhan, calling him the “GOAT,” which means “Greatest of All Time.”
Unilever is a huge conglomerate and that comes with some sense of social responsibility. If Unilever is in bed with Sarsour and Mallory they cannot plead ignorance as the latter’s agenda is very clear. And if they don’t step up to the plate distancing themselves from that disgusting duo, then it’s time to boycott Ben and Jerry’s and pass the message around to everyone you know.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the socialist NY Democrat is having a hissy fit over the fact that Amazon has chosen Long Island City as one of the two places it will expand. Arlington County’s Crystal City is the second location. Both cities are located directly across from the major city centres. The company plans to evenly split the offices with as many as 25,000 employees.
Amazon plans to spend US$5 billion on the two new developments and expects to get more than US$2 billion in tax credits and incentives, with plans to apply for more. But here’s the real deal:
All those people working for Amazon need to rent an apartment, eat, bring their clothing to the dry cleaners, go to a dentist and doctor, you get the drift. 12,000 new employees is nothing to sneeze at. In fact, it will be a financial boon to both cities. But hey, what does Cortez say? Stay home. We don’t need your business. To put it mildly, she doesn’t seem to grasp the situation. A nice way of saying she should keep her mouth shut as she has no idea what she’s talking about. Our suggestion is that Cortez move to Vermont with Zaidy Bernie.
The longest waiting-in-the-wings monarch, Prince Charles aka Chuck is turning 70. Blanche, can you imagine waiting so long to take over your mother’s job? Seriously. Longevity is rampant in the royal family, with the Queen Mum living until 101 years old.
The Queen obviously has no intention, at the age of 92, of stepping down. And, most likely to the chagrin of her son, she looks fabulous dawling. Her skin is glowing and she shows up at many functions.
His biggest problem is that his sons and daughters-in-law are upstaging him wherever he goes. Could it be because his wife Camilla is, shall we say, not a beauty- arf arf, to put it mildly? Blanche, you are dizguzting.
Beware of men who call themselves feminists. Usually, lurking in the background are women who would beg to differ. And not their wives or mothers. Just saying.
Men who truly support women don’t have to come out on the front page of newspapers and laud themselves as our prime minister did. Justin Trudeau today called himself a “feminist,” explaining why he mandated a gender-balanced cabinet when he took office and how the #MeToo movement has changed his leadership. Why do we think that he has his own definition of what it means to be a feminist… until he doesn’t get his way with someone. Time will tell.
Sorry for you if you are a member of the Catholic Church. Here’s a headline: Nothing will ever get fixed in that place. N.e.v.e.r. Being celibate is not normal. Oy – did we say that? So unless that changes, keep your kids away from da priests. Does Blanche need to be X-rated?
Da pope, more useless than the word useless, told US bishops to hit pause on taking action to address the Catholic Church’s decades-old sexual abuse problems. The reason: Da popeness is holding a worldwide conference in February and any progress should be made after that. Again we say, nothing will ever be solved until they get to the root of the problem which ain’t happening. Good thing this piece is last. Maybe the peeps reading it won’t get to the bottom.
