Ben and Jerry’s Calls for Americans to Return ‘Stolen’ Land to Native Americans

Mt. Rushmore, Wiki
Ben and Jerry’s ice cream company was blasted after it posted this tweet on the 4th of July: “This 4th of July, it’s high time we recognize that the US exists on stolen Indigenous land and commit to returning it…” The online backlash was near instantaneous, with many users calling for a boycott of the brand. The company urged Americans to start by giving Mr. Rushmore back. The land where Ben and Jerry’s factory is located formerly belonged to the Abenaki and Mohican Native Americans that have lived in Vermont for 10,000 years; critics are calling for Ben and Jerry’s to surrender their property to the indigenous people.

Ben & Jerry’s customers are calling for a Bud Light-style boycott of the ice cream brand after it blasted the U.S. as existing “on stolen land” this week.

The company’s official Twitter account called on customers to commit to “returning” indigenous land and said they should “start with Mount Rushmore.” Social media users expressed outrage at the timing of the statement, which landed on Independence Day.

“This 4th of July, it’s high time we recognize that the US exists on stolen Indigenous land and commit to returning it,” Ben & Jerry’s wrote on its Twitter account, linking to a blog post on the topic.

“Ah, the Fourth of July. Who doesn’t love a good parade, some tasty barbecue, and a stirring fireworks display?” the company wrote. “The only problem with all that, though, is that it can distract from an essential truth about this nation’s birth: The US was founded on stolen Indigenous land.

“This year, let’s commit to returning it. Here’s why we need to start with Mount Rushmore.”

The online backlash was near instantaneous, with many users calling for a boycott of the brand.

Jeremy Redfern, press secretary for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, responded simply, “No it doesn’t,” to the claim the U.S. exists on stolen land.

“Make @benndjerrys Bud Light again,” singer-songwriter John Rich wrote.

“Long overdue for the Bud Light treatment. You hate the country, fine. We won’t buy your product. All good,” another user responded.

“I look forward to the virtue signaling Ben & Jerry’s returning their factory’s land to the Abenaki and Mohican Native Americans that have lived in Vermont for 10,000 years,” another user said.

My favorite ice cream treat was Cherry Garcia even though I tire of their hypocrisy and socialist BS. This is the last straw, I won’t be buying any more. Might reconsider after they give back their “stolen” land to the Indians.

Let them keep their hippie ice cream. Most of us could stand to lose some weight anyway. Eat a piece of fruit instead.
