Students at University are Outraged That Ice Cream Isn’t ‘Inclusive’ Enough. Here’s What They’re Doing About it

Published

So apparently the students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are pretty ticked off about the lack of inclusivity in their ice cream on campus, so, like good little social justice warriors, they’re stepping up to the plate to rid the world of this great injustice.

Seriously, folks, only millennials could take something as innocuous as ice cream and turn it into a full blown political crusade.

So what, exactly, about ice cream has these folks raging against the machine? The fact that it contains one ingredient that violates some students’ religious dietary restrictions. Yes, this is absolutely for real.

They’ve even gone so far to draft legislation, which they titled, “Ice Cream for All,” to make the ice cream more inclusive. At the time of this writing, the legislation has eight sponsors, including the chair, vice chair, and secretary of the Associated Students of Madison Student Council.

The university’s official ice cream, the Babcock, reportedly contains a beef gelatin additive. According to “Ice Cream for All,” this effectively ruins the ice cream experience for some minority students, rendering “certain communities such as the Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and vegetarian unable to enjoy it without violating their beliefs.”

Though the council is intended to represent a student-type government, it cannot effect change, and can only make recommendations to the university on the ice cream. If the resolution passes, even though it may not convince the university to change the ingredients, the council intends to condemn university-sponsored events that feature the Babcock ice cream. Also, if passed, the council will recommend that the school officially acknowledge that the university’s official ice cream marginalizes some students.

A spokesperson for the University of Wisconsin-Madison told Campus Reform that the university already has inclusive alternatives on hand, producing and selling “‘super premium’ ice cream, sherbet, and Greek frozen yogurt options that are made with a plant-based stabilizer and are gelatin-free.”

The spokesperson noted that there is also the option of “lactose-free ice cream for people who are lactose intolerant.”

The “legislation” the student council concocted — i.e., wasted their time on instead of studying — states that to not provide ice cream that matches the aforementioned religious dietary restrictions “would be a gross act of discrimination” for “minority students.”

As if that isn’t nutty enough, they also go on to call this a “symbolic issue” that represents the marginalization minority students feel and will ultimately impact whether or not these folks feel welcomed into their connected communities.

If you haven’t yet felt terrified for the future of our nation, now seems like a pretty good time to start.

ACU Calls on Delta Airlines to Correct Their Lies About Georgia Voter ID law

Continuing its efforts to protect our liberty from the threats of woke corporations the ACU sent a letter to the Delta over their Georgia lies

Published

Since Georgia passed their election integrity law, anyone who has followed the news knows how major corporations have taken steps based on the false cancel culture claims about the bill. A week ago, we learned that the American Conservative Union (ACU) announced the establishment of The Center To Protect Voters and Their Voices. This ACU unit is designed to prevent woke corporations from using their resources to skew the political discourse toward policies that attack Americans’ freedoms as they did in Georgia and previously in other states. Delta Georgia lies Now the ACU is expanding its fight to protect the rights of Americans. They wrote the CEO of Delta Airlines and published online, a letter calling on Delta Airlines, Inc. to correct their inaccurate description Of Georgia’s voter ID law. Or, as I call it, their lies. Here’s the letter: Mr. Edward Bastian Chief Executive Officer, Delta Air Lines Inc. Delta Air Lines Inc. Dear Mr. Bastian, As one of the nation’s largest airlines, Delta touches the lives of hundreds of millions of people throughout the freedom-loving world. Many of these are Americans who value free enterprise, common sense and fairness. Overseas, they are advocates for democracy who look to the United States for guidance as they strive to replicate our ability to respect individual sovereignty and liberty. On behalf of all these people, the American Conservative Union (ACU) urges you to correct your misleading and damaging statements about the Georgia voting law, SB 202, and we ask for a meeting to discuss our concerns with your embrace of unAmerican political forces. In the past, Delta has needed the support of conservative organizations, like ACU, to pursue sound policies that sustain Delta’s business. When your interests align with conservative values, we have been able to work together. For example, many…

Poll: Majority of Americans Think Corporations have Gotten Too Political

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans think that U.S. corporations have gotten far too political and should get back to just selling stuff. We have witnessed a growing number of corporations going woke since Georgia passed its new election integrity law. These corporations are pushing a hardcore, left-wing line of lies against the Georgia and have made all sorts of false claims about the new law. But a recent poll by the Daily Wire finds that a majority of Americans are already sick and tired of the left-wing posturing of these corporations. The Daily Wire poll found that 64 percent of those surveyed are less likely to support these big-mouthed corporations. The poll also found that most Americans did not support the decision by Major League Baseball to pull its All-Star Game from Atlanta. https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845164169101313 https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845165897121792 So, why are these corporations doing all this despite the fact that they are pissing off half of America? Well, there are two reasons. First is cowardice. Instead of standing for American free speech and respecting the rights of the states to run their own lives, these corporations are siding with the anti-American left and are engaging in economic terrorism against us. They are doing this not out of principle, though. They are doing it to prevent people from suing them. After all, leftists sue everybody at the drop of a hat. Conservatives almost never do. That means these corporations are guessing that they can escape legal problems by mollifying the left despite angering the right. The second reason is business. These big corporations imagine that if they follow the left, it will help lead to the destruction of their smaller competitors and they will be the last men standing. They also imagine that they can control government through their big…
