    Uh oh, no more government contracts with Ben & Jerry's in Florida. Um, do we have any government contracts with Ben & Jerry's in Florida?

    Florida may punish Ben & Jerry’s for company’s stance on Israel

    It worked with airbnb, but they are much more corporate than Ben & Jerrys. Will be interesting to see how this one plays out, a part of Ben & Jerry's branding is their social consciousness.

    Ben & Jerry's is an autonomous subsidiary of Unilever (with its own board of directors), can Florida even do anything legally to Unilever based on the actions of Ben & Jerry's?

    Yet, we will spend Florida tax payer money so judges can tell us this.

    I thought the GOP had a problem with frivolous lawsuits...

    Nah, their problem is with consumers bringing meritorious lawsuits that hammer corporations.

    "America First" is when you punish an American company on behalf of a foreign government.

    More big government cancel culture from the people that claim to hate big government and cancel culture.

    I’m shocked by this. Shocked.

    There has always been a divide on the far right. Some are pro Israel, and it usually is the Christian evangelical side who think Israel plays an important role in future return of christ/revelations etc. Then there are the more conspiratorial types who are anti Israel, and moan about "Israel firsters".

    Pretty much.

    I’m just wondering how those latter types will handle this boycott of Ben and Jerry’s. But I suppose they don’t eat Libbie ice cream anyway. :emoji_laughing:

    Why are conservatives such hypocrites about cancel culture?

    Looking at the obesity rates in red states, I’m gonna guess many of them aren’t strangers to the yumminess of libbie ice cream.
