I think this is wonderful. Thousands of voters threaten to boycott Goya for praising Trump and, instead of asking why thousands of voters don't like him, Trump doubles down demonstrating a lack of ethics AND incomprehension.  Trump, the administration of unintended consequences. ITYS

Goya CEO Defies Mob, Declares 'Hell No! Hell No!' I Won't Apologize for Pro-Trump Comments

 

By Elise Ehrhard

 

In recent years, leftist cancel culture has forced victims out of jobs and businesses for expressing conservative beliefs or support for President Donald Trump. Leftists have tried to destroy careers and livelihoods.

 

Some men and women have buckled under the pressure and apologized for conservative views shared by millions of Americans. A college football coach even apologized for wearing a T-shirt with a conservative news network’s logo while he was on a fishing trip.

 

Robert Unanue, the CEO of Goya Foods, the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States, has refused to be a person who backs down for supporting the president.

 

On Thursday, Unanue appeared with Trump at the White House and praised the administration for its Hispanic Prosperity Initiative.

 

“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder,” Unanue said at the event.

 

“We have an incredible builder. And we pray,” he added. “We pray for our leadership, our president, and we pray for our country — that we will continue to prosper and to grow.”

 

Soon, left-wingers from Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda (who himself is facing radical leftist backlash for creating a musical that is positive about the Founding Fathers) called for a boycott of Goya products.

 

The leftists tried to pressure Unanue with the social media boycott hashtag #goyaway and #BoycottGoya.

 

On Friday, Unanue appeared on “Fox & Friends” and described calls to boycott Goya products as “suppression of speech.” In that interview, he noted that during the Obama administration, he participated in events for President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama with no such backlash.

 

But it was on Friday evening during an interview with Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle” that he used his bluntest words about calls to apologize for praising Trump.

 

“The Goya brand is extremely iconic and it means something to every different ethnicity,” Unanue said during the interview. “That is very powerful. And that can’t be taken down, I don’t believe, in a moment.

 

“But the fact of the matter is, our country is very divided. I’m 66 years old, and I have been through a few decades, let’s say. And in my lifetime, I have never seen the country more unfortunately divided. I like the saying, ‘There are those who are born to love and build and others to hate and destroy.’ And unfortunately, there’s a movement of hatred and destruction.

“Who wants to see houses of worship burn? Businesses that people have put their whole life savings into. And to build a business and to only have people come along and destroy it. They have no right to do that. And we have to stand for prosperity. You know, we are the most prosperous country in the world.”

 

When Ingraham asked if he would be apologizing for standing next to President Trump, Unanue replied “Hell, no. Hell, no.”

 

Unanue’s spine of steel is paying off for the company.

In response to the boycott, radio host Mike Opelka came up with a Buy-cott encouraging Americans to purchase Goya products.

 

Pro-Goya consumers have responded. For example, a Virginia man raised more than $100,000 to purchase Goya products and donate them to food pantries, according to MSN.  Turning a boycott into a buy-cott with the president of the United States tweeting a love for your products is the best free marketing Unanue could have asked for.

 

The company itself has donated millions of pounds of food to the U.S. food banks, including 100,000 pounds to the New York City food bank. New Yorkers like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should be showing gratitude to the company, not hostility.

 

Too few leaders, whether in business, sports or Hollywood have shown the same guts as Goya’s CEO. Rare exceptions have included pro-Trump NFL coach Jack Del Rio who literally told his cancel culture critics to “Kiss my a**.”

 

Americans of any political persuasion need to feel free to peacefully voice their opinions without having their lives or livelihoods threatened. Watching celebrities and prominent leaders bow down to the mob again and again has had a chilling effect on political and cultural discourse in this country.

 

So three cheers for Robert Unanue. He stood by his principles and ought to be rewarded for it. It is gratifying to see somebody who’s not afraid to take a stand.

 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

MEMO TO LIBERAL LEFT:

 

Please keep doing what you are doing.  

 

Your actions are galvanizing conservatives all over the world, not just in the USA.  A choice must be made and for America it will be November of this year.

Goya Foods CEO praises Trump, and thousands online say #BoycottGoya

 

I saw this guy gush over Trump,  and you know he has the right to do that.  Problem is I will forever associate that with the Goya Foods product line.

 

Now when I look at Goya foods I see Trump,  and I lose my appetite.

 

It's like putting Hitler on a box of Wheaties.

 

Just a bad business decision.

 

Unfortunately for Goya the more people talk about this the more that effect will stick.

ToadPOTUS never has any citizen to the White House who is not a sycophantic, toad-kissing wuss. Problem for Goya is their major market gives Toad a 31% approval rating, and 59% say they'll vote for Biden.

 

For the sake of the company and its workers, I hope those customers stop buying for a couple weeks, and then forgive the CEO who had no choice if he ever wanted to visit the White House before 22 Jan 2021, and tRump had said he would launch a Hispanic prosperity initiative, which has yet to see the light of day.
