The right-wing crybabies’ latest whine du jour: staunchly progressive Ben and Jerry’s names one of their limited time flavors of ice cream, named Schweddy Balls.
The vehemently homophobic far-right SPLC-designated hate group American ChristoFascist Association subsidiary One Million Moms called for a boycott of the brand: American ChristoFascist Association subsidiary One Million Moms called for a boycott of the brand:
Maybe they would have preferred Bill Brasky’s balls, instead?
The humorless, fun-averse conservative group One Million Moms, an offshoot of the American Family Association, is — once again — none too pleased with frozen treat liberals, Ben & Jerry’s. The very vanilla organization is calling for a boycott of the ice cream maker’s new, buzzy flavor, the “Saturday Night Live” skit-inspired Schweddy Balls.
Then, they make a point to air out their dairy delight grievances, including another rejection of any sort of gay-themed treat.
In the past, Ben & Jerry’s has released controversial ice creams, like a special edition of Chubby Hubby called Hubby Hubby last year which celebrated gay marriage. It seems that offending customers has become an annual tradition for Ben & Jerry’s.
The ice cream is being released in a limited batch, which means it will be distributed nationwide but only for three or four months. If it proves popular, another batch might be forthcoming, but we hope not.
Finally, a call to action, asking for vigilance in the face of a full frontal ball assault.
Please send Ben & Jerry’s Public Relations Manager, Sean Greenwood, an email letter requesting that no additional Schweddy Balls ice cream be distributed. Also, highly recommend they refrain from producing another batch with this name or any other offensive names or you will no longer be able to purchase their products.
Those at the Huffington Post, however, heartily embraced the Schweddy Balls; read our taste test reviews here.
The name “Schweddy Balls” got its origin from a skit on NBC’s Saturday Night Live.
Dear AFA (and all other Christofascist loons), please quit your shallow-minded whining over a harmless name like “Schweddy Balls.” This is not the pre-Cable TV era thinking anymore.
This is not the 1st time the right-wing bible-thumping crybabies have boycotted products for endorsing views that are opposite to them— including, but not limited to: same-sex marriage, supporting Planned Parenthood (which is NOT an “abortion clinic” like the anti-choicers think it is), Park 51 (aka “Ground Zero Mosque” to Islamophobes), showing support to the Muslim community 2 of the 3 US-based car companies (GM [or “Government Motors” per the right-wing fringe groups] and Chrysler), anything related to France (particularly during the mid 2000’s), Liberal/Progressive Musicians, Fox’s Glee, Transgendered Chaz Bono on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, CPAC, and whatnot.
