On the Fourth of July, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Demands that America Be Given Back to the Indians;
Its Parent Company Unilver Loses $2.6 Billion in Stock Valuation

Keep talking, filthy hippie yuppie soulless corporate scum:

Getting woke:

Ben & Jerry's has called on the US to return "stolen Indigenous land" in a bold Fourth of July message.

Taking to social media, the ice cream company divided fans over its Independence Day post, tweeting, "The United States was founded on stolen indigenous land. This Fourth of July, let's commit to returning it."

In a similar message on its website, the company argued that July 4 festivities and celebrations can "distract from an essential truth about this nation's birth."

Ben & Jerry's proposed to "start with Mount Rushmore," writing, "What is the meaning of Independence Day for those whose land this country stole, those who were murdered and forced with brutal violence onto reservations, those who were pushed from their holy places and denied their freedom."

"The faces on Mount Rushmore are the faces of men who actively worked to destroy Indigenous cultures and ways of life, to deny Indigenous people their basic rights," the statement concluded.


Going broke:

Ben & Jerry's parent company Unilever loses $2.6bn in market capital as ice cream boycott kicks in over 'anti-American' July 4th tweet: GOP's Kristi Noem slams owners as 'liberal Vermont businessmen who think they know everything'

In a new interview with Fox News, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem slammed woke ice cream makers Ben & Jerry's

Noem's anger stems from a tweet sent out by the company in which they called for Mount Rushmore to be returned to Native Americans

Since sending out the tweet, Ben & Jerry's parent, Unilever, has lost $2.6 billion in market capital

By Paul Farrell For Dailymail.Com

...

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem laid into uber-woke ice cream brand Ben & Jerry's over the company's infamous July 4th tweet in which it called for Mount Rushmore to be returned to Native Americans.

Noem, a Republican, called the Ben & Jerry's bosses a 'bunch of liberal Vermont businessmen' who 'haven't studied our history' and think that they 'know everything about this country,' during an interview with Fox News on Thursday.

The governor went on to call Mount Rushmore 'the greatest symbol of our freedom.'

Since sending out the message on Tuesday, Unilever, which has owned Ben & Jerry's since 2000, has lost $2.6 billion in market capital. Those shares were down .5 percent on Wednesday and down 1 percent at the start of trading on Thursday.

At the time of writing, the company's market capital is down to $131 billion from $133.5 billion.

'We can learn from the men on that mountain. We can do better, but boy did they lead us through some challenging times,' Noem added in her Fox interview in an apparent reference to the face that adorn the monument, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

...

The embattled brand, which was founded by longtime Bernie Sanders allies Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenwood, tweeted the message to its 494,000 followers.

The 2000 acquisition agreement between Unilever and Ben & Jerry's gave the ice cream maker autonomy to continue its progressive social mission independently of business decisions made by its parent.

'This 4th of July, it's high time we recognize that the US exists on stolen Indigenous land and commit to returning it,' the company's official account wrote before suggesting Mount Rushmore should be handed back to its original owners.'

During American Pride Month, Ben & Jerry?!

DURING AMERICAN PRIDE MONTH?!?!

...

Earlier this month, Unilever was named as an 'international sponsor of war' by Ukraine as the company continues to operate in Russia and is therefore subject to a new law requiring taxpaying businesses to contribute directly to the war effort.

In 2022, Unilever paid $331 million in taxes in Russia, reports The Guardian.

In 2021, Ben & Jerry's also unsuccessfully attempted to stop Unilever from selling its ice cream in parts of Israel.

I've seen calls to "Make Ben & Jerry's Bud Light Again."
