Ben And Jerry’s Is Protesting A Country’s Same Sex Marriage Policy In The Most Ridiculous Way..
There are plenty of great ice cream flavors and ice cream brands out there. As a matter of fact, there is a local store brand cherry cheesecake that I have been eating quite regularly that is just amazing. That being said, I hate it when businesses politicize seemingly everything.
I mean, does everything someone does have to be a damn statement?
Ever the radical left-wingers, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream peddlers have launched a bizarre new policy in Australia to try and force that nation into passing a gay marriage law. The ice cream sellers have now ceased selling two scoops of ice cream of the same flavor at a time in the land down under to protest that Australia doesn’t have gay marriage, The Blaze reports.
The ban will be instituted at all 26 Ben & Jerry’s locations in Australia as part of a nationwide campaign to push the Australian parliament to embrace same-sex marriage. Blending flavors, it should be noted, is still permissible.
So, what is the significance of this ban on two scoops?
“Imagine heading down to your local scoop shop to order your favorite two scoops,” the dessert company said in a statement. “But you find out you are not allowed — Ben & Jerry’s has banned two scoops of the same flavor. You’d be furious!”
“But this doesn’t even begin to compare to how furious you would be if you were told you were not allowed to marry the person you love,” the statement said. OK, so customers are supposed to be “furious” that they can’t get two scoops because “two” represents marriage and since gays can’t marry… I am exhausted just bothering about it all.
So, I guess customers can just order four scoops and then share with a friend, right? Or just order two single scoops telling the clerks that they are for two different people and then just eating them both themselves. And by ordering two single scoop the company is now wasting more paper cups and plastic spoons and adding to global warming with more garbage, or something.
Or, better yet, just don’t go to a Ben & Jerry’s in the first place and deprive these extremists liberals from getting your cash.
The far-left company is also pushing a petition on Aussie voters. But it looks like Aussie voters are supportive of gay marriage anyway, though. According to polling conducted in August 2016, after the country’s latest federal election, a majority of Aussies — 62 percent — expressed support for gay marriage.
