Florida Gov. DeSantis Blacklists Ben And Jerry’s Ice Cream for Protesting Israel’s Occupation

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is placing Ben and Jerry’s on an official government blacklist because the ice cream company is removing its product from Israel in protest its occupation of Palestinian territory. The state’s moves following a public call issued by Israel’s ambassador to the US asking 35 states with anti-BDS (boycott, divestiture and sanctions) laws to take action against Ben & Jerry’s. DeSantis is standing against free speech and the free market by using the power of the state to blacklist a private company choosing to do business the way it wants. A leaked internal memo from the Anti-Defamation League in 2018 revealed the pro-Israel lobby group thought that anti-BDS laws were “unconstitutional” and would ultimately be “harmful to the Jewish community.”

This case has massive implications for civil liberties in America going forward. DeSantis previously banned criticism of Israel or Jewish people in public schools and colleges.
