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 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!

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.

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?

In other words, he opposes the two state solution and recognizes occupied Palestine as Israeli territory.

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.

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.

So he supports violations of international law? And Israel’s occupation of the West Bank?

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.
