Ben & Jerry’s is donating $25,000 to the Women’s March, whose leaders, noted Jew-haters Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, are associated with the vicious racist and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. And that’s perfectly fine with Ben & Jerry’s, because it’s just “a point of view different from our own.”
But President Trump and everyone who voted for him are somehow directly responsible for the Pittsburgh synagogue mass shooting?
Ok, got it.
Ben & Jerry’s, the Vermont-based ice cream maker, on Tuesday unveiled a new flavor in support of groups that are fighting President Donald Trump’s agenda, including the Women’s March, despite its leaders’ ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
“Today we launch Pecan Resist! This flavor supports groups creating a more just and equitable nation for us all, and who are fighting President Trump’s regressive agenda,” the company tweeted….
The ice cream maker also tweeted out a picture of several progressive leaders, including Linda Sarsour, an anti-Israel activist and national organizer of the Women’s March who has said that “nothing is creepier than Zionism.” Sarsour has come under fire for her ties to Farrakhan, such as speaking at a Nation Of Islam event in 2015 where she attacked Israel. She has also discounted anti-Semitism, saying that “while anti-Semitism is something that impacts Jewish Americans, it’s different than anti-black racism or Islamophobia because it’s not systemic.”
Sarsour is not the only leader of the Women’s March to have links to Farrakhan. Earlier this year, Tamika Mallory, the movement’s co-president, attended the Nation of Islam’s annual Saviours’ Day event, where Farrakhan attacked “that Satanic Jew,” called Jews “the mother and father of apartheid,” and proclaimed that “when you want something in this world, the Jew holds the door.” He also said that “the powerful Jews are my enemy.”….
The Independent Journal Review on Tuesday reached out to Ben & Jerry’s regarding the Women’s March’s close ties to Farrakhan.
“We’re comfortable with the idea that the people and the causes we partner with may have a point of view different from our own on some issues,” a spokeswoman for Ben & Jerry’s told IJR. “They can be controversial, just as we can. Linda may not agree with everything we’ve done. But the work that she has done to promote women’s rights, as co-chair of the Women’s March, is undeniably important and we are proud to join her in that effort.”….
