Israeli Ice Cream Purveyors Unhappy with Anti-Trump Treat

The ice cream makers in the Middle East had a nasty message for Ben & Jerry’s this week.

It should be telling that, when we look around the globe, we see a great deal of hesitation to criticize US President Donald Trump.

Of course, this hasn’t been the case domestically, where a number of violent, anarchic protests have taken place over the course of the last two years.  This has been fueled, in part, by the incredibly risqué rhetoric of the mainstream media, who have allowed for a chaotic, downward spiral of dissonance to infect the nation as of late.  Starting with Kathy Griffin’s beheading stunt, and leading us to Maxine Waters’ and Eric Holder’s recent comments, the radical left has continually pushed the envelope of American political decorum.

The latest normalization of this radical hoopla has come to us from Ben & Jerry’s, the famous Vermont ice cream makers, who this week released their anti-Trump, anti-government flavorPecan Resist”.

“Ben & Jerry’s Israel is an independent and Israeli company,” it wrote on Facebook, noting that all of its products and ingredients are manufactured and sourced locally.

“We have no connection to the decisions made by the global brand, and we don’t get involved in local or world politics.”

The company said that it would not be selling “Pecan Resist” and will “continue to work and act for the community and for Israeli society.”

President Trump has been an extremely vocal supporter of Israel, even going so far as to make the highly controversial decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem; a change in locale that effectively recognizes the latter city as the capitol of Israel.  This move has obviously drawn praise from a great many Jewish leaders, but condemnation from the Palestinian organizations who believe that Jerusalem does not belong to the Israelites.

VIDEO: Mike Rowe Delivers Summary Of Democratic Candidates’ Economic Agenda

Published

on

Mike Rowe, America’s favorite champion of the average, blue collar worker, is on a promotional tour for his new book, “The Way I Heard It,” and stopped by “Fox & Friends,” where he gave a summary of the economic agenda currently being pushed by the Democratic candidates running for president. Here’s what he had to say, via The Daily Wire: “When you have a half a million Americans sleeping out on the street today…and then you also have three people owning more wealth than the bottom half of American society, that is a moral and economic outrage,” said Sanders. “So if you are asking me, do I think we should demand that the wealthy start paying — the wealthiest top one-tenth of one percent — start paying their fair share of taxes…Yes, that’s exactly what I believe.” The hosts then played a clip of frontrunner Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who is also running on an aggressive tax-the-rich plan. “Taxing income is not going to get you where you want to be the way taxing wealth does,” she said. “We need a wealth tax in order to make investments in the next generation.” Asked about his response to the Democrats’ various economic plans, particularly Sanders’ 97.5% tax on the 400 wealthiest Americans, Rowe said, “Yeah, okay. It’s a free country. Float ‘em. Fly ‘em. Run ‘em up the old flagpole — see who salutes.” He then offered a memorable summary of his takeaway from Tuesday’s debate. “Look, in the end you’ve got millionaires arguing with millionaires over who hates the millionaires the most,” said Rowe. Rowe went on to say, “And I guess it’s a conversation we’ll have, but I remember a couple of years ago, I took my meager staff over the Reagan Ranch … One of the stories they…

‘The View’ Co-Host Joy Behar Argues Politics With Stranger While On Vacation; Says Trump Is ‘Destroying The Planet’

Published

Joy Behar, co-host of “The View” so despises President Trump that she cannot seem to allow herself, or the rest of the human race, a break from constantly bashing and slamming the man, even while she’s supposedly taking a vacation. Behar, who recently took a trip to London, ended up getting into an argument over politics with a complete stranger, claiming Trump is “destroying the planet.” Via The Washington Times: “When I was in London, I was in the war rooms and I got into an argument with a Trump supporter,” she said, NewsBusters reported. “All he said to me is, ‘Why can’t you give him a chance the way we gave Obama a chance?’” Ms. Behar scoffed at the idea. “Give him a chance? He’s destroying the planet!” she said. “He’s destroying the democracy. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. He’s writing stupid letters to Erdogan. He’s killing people far away from us who did nothing but help us. Give him a chance? That’s the argument you’re giving me underground?” Getting into an argument with a stranger wasn’t the only excitement for Behar on her trip. She was apparently pickpocketed as well. “I got robbed at Harrods,” Behar recounted. “They stole my wallet. I was pickpocketed, yes.”
