Mayor de Blasio says he'll boycott Ben & Jerry's over Israel stance
Mayor de Blasio says he will boycott Ben & Jerry's after the company said it will no longer sell its ice cream in occupied Palestinian territories.
Remember when the nypd kidnapped his daughter to intimidate him and he just bent over for them too?
So, Americans are being told that they can boycott a U.S. company, but it’s illegal for them to boycott Israeli firms??
I haven’t bought Ban and Jerry’s before. But now I’m going to start.
I usually think that the NY media elite’s exaggerated hatred of de Blasio is yawn-inducing, but between this and his tacit endorsement of Adams, he deserves every ounce of hate that he gets now
Whatever your faith I'm pretty sure God expects us to stand up for those being oppressed not the oppressor. I'll start buying his share. #FreePalestine. Thank you @benandjerrys!
Never bought ben&jerry before , this is my first time 😋 https://t.co/BnmRgjYwUJ
It has been crystal clear for years that De Blasio chiming in doesn't do his own side any favors
How about stopping all of the violence in the city?? Stop with the ice cream. Protect your citizens.
Anyone supporting the apartheid doesn't deserve ice cream anyway. 👎
It's been awhile since I've bought Ben & Jerry's half-baked ice cream but I'm suddenly having a craving now.
Italians 🇮🇹🇮🇹 stand with our Palestinian brothers and sisters!! 🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸🇵🇸
Wtf is with this guy and food. Every time I see him on camera he’s either promoting something with food or eating said food/chewing with this mouth open while talking
So occupation and denial of human rights to millions of Palestinians is ok but boycotting the occupier ( in the occupied areas only ) is outrageous. Does this make sense?
Bill deblasio is so insufferable. He doesnt wven need to get involved. Just stay out of it.
So what, he’ll eat a pint of Ample Hills, sitting in his boxers in front of the TV Friday night instead.
In other words, he opposes the two state solution and recognizes occupied Palestine as Israeli territory.
B&J’s is delicious. Idgaf about their stances on anything other than ice cream.
That's right. Gotta keep those Palestinians from getting too uppity. https://t.co/DEWmIXsD8d
Everyone hates this guy. Should guarantee a good quarter for the company, lolz.
All the advocating they’ve done for black ppl I wouldn’t boycott them-
The settlements are illegal. The ice cream folks don't want to be involved in the illegal settlements anymore. DeBlasio knows the US and global opinion is that the settlements are illegal.
De Blasio never met an Apartheid occupation he didn’t like. Boycott away. The MAGA t s did it too. Ben & Jerry’s sales increased. I am buying an extra one this evening
They're still selling it in Israel proper (AFAIK), they're just not selling it in the West Bank, and rightly so.
He should’ve been run out of town on a rail when he ate a slice with a knife and fork.
Look how much good, one ice cream company is doing for international politics. Amazing!
This prick is 100% going to run for some kind of office in the next few years.
Now tell us how @BilldeBlasio feels about Israel’s illegal Pegasus program?
people are being shot EVERY day in NYC and you're worried about ice cream. What is wrong with you?
Well I'm glad NY's mayor recognizes boycotts are a legal, non-violent and court-sanctioned protest tactic... Join the boycott club, Mr Mayor, even if it's on the wrong side -- i assume now you're prepared to defend the BDS movement because you get why boycotts are important?
Mayor de Blasio also says masks don't prevent the spread of COVID.
To put it bluntly, Mayor de Blasio is an odious politician who will say anything he thinks his wealthy core constituency wants to hear. 🤷♂️
putting the interests of a foreign government over an American company which employs 12.6k Americans? I wonder what sort of shady stuff he's caught up in
It’s antisemitic to boycott Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield’s ice cream business then, @ABC7NY.
Why do new yorker politicians have such a hard on for brutal regimes like israel. Dude just mind your business and fix the mta and reduce the tolls.
So he supports violations of international law? And Israel’s occupation of the West Bank?
As long as there’s no embargo on the sweet treats coming into NYC, I don’t give a shit what you do personally, Bill, they’re in the right anyway
Good thing @NYCMayor will be completely irrelevant in the very near future.
Ben & Jerry’s was violating US law by operating in the occupied territories.
says supporting Israeli occupation is his job:
""City Hall will always be open to AIPAC," he said. "When you need me to stand by you in Washington or anywhere, I will answer the call and I'll answer it happily 'cause that's my job.""
Dear Mayor, you should not worry about international matter. It isn’t your job. You have other things to do! Please concentrate on NYC! Crimes, bailing system, letting criminals having pampered life on our tax money! Dirty street, vandalism… stop talking about ice cream‼️
Of all the things I don't give a single fuck about, the business decisions of an ice cream company owned by Unilever is near the top.
