Goya Outrage Shows Cancel Culture Out of Control

goyaIt was the kind of program that, ordinarily, liberals would cheer.

To hear them tell it, expanding the opportunities for minorities has always been their party’s idea. But when President Donald Trump took a stab at it, announcing a business and educational project aimed directly at Hispanic people, the left wasn’t about to cut him some slack. And worse than that, they’re out to destroy anyone who does.

For Goya CEO Robert Unanue, Thursday’s executive order had been a long time coming. Like most Hispanic Americans, he was eager to work with the administration to improve his community’s way of life.

When Trump invited Unanue to join his Hispanic Prosperity Initiative, he eagerly accepted. And, at the signing ceremony, he praised Trump, saying: “We are all truly blessed … to have a leader like President Trump who is a builder. We have an incredible builder, and we pray. We pray for our leadership, our president.”

No sooner had he spoken the words than the cancel culture, led by ringleaders like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., started the hashtag #BoycottGoya.

To Unanue, who pointed out that he’d done an event at the White House with Michelle Obama too, the backlash was unbelievable.

“You’re allowed to talk good or talk praise to one president but … all the sudden that’s not acceptable,” Unanue told Fox News. “If you’re called by the president of the United States, you’re going to say, ‘No, I’m sorry, I’m busy, no thank you’? I didn’t say that to the Obamas, and I didn’t say that to President Trump.”

Asked if he would apologize for the comments, Unanue said absolutely not. In fact, he made his feelings clear that a liberal boycott was just another attempt at “suppression of speech.”

He’s right. These same people who claim to care about minorities—phonies like AOC and her followers—have never given two figs about real America. If they did, they’d have set aside their political agendas long enough to realize that Unanue is no enemy.

They’d have seen that Goya—the same company they’ve decided to blacklist—just pledged to donate 2 million cans of food to needy U.S. families. And instead of applauding that—or, frankly, just remaining silent—they did what liberals do: proved they care more about politics than people.

Cancel culture is absolutely out of control. This is a man who simply said something good about Trump, and what are the mobs doing? Threatening to take down his brand. We might as well be back in the French Revolution, lining people up in the guillotine yard.

As Americans, we can’t afford to be passive about this leftist revolutionary agenda. Fortunately, there are men of conviction like Robert Unanue who refuse to bend to the angry fringe.

But there are far more, warn the editors of National Review Online, who “believe they can pacify the mob by throwing it a sacrificial lamb or two. In that, they are mistaken.”

There is no appeasement. There is only courage or surrender. And only one will guarantee that our country and freedom survive.

I am sure tired of this cancel culture. Brought to us by destroyers…not builders. Afraid for our nation if the leftists gain control of the government. Support Goya…and support Tucker…and may God bless America!

You really can’t make this stuff up. Let them boycott. It shows their stupidity and their hate not only the President but also for the Hispanic people that want to become better citizens and maybe get ahead in life.
I have never had Goya products but I think I will now.
The left and their media cronies have really lost it
MAGA. vote for some who cares for all the citizens of our great country

The left bases its politics on feelings and emotions, not as Conservatives who use logic and facts to form its politics. Anything which attacks how they think makes them feel bad, They emote rather than think.

It’s sickening that people want to boycott GOYA instead of being proud of its success as a minority business. Let’s support GOYA!!! It’s products are awesome. BUY!!!!BUY!!! GOYA PRODUCTS! GOYA’s CEO deserves strong commendation for His Courage to express what he thinks and great deal of appreciation for his company’s contributions to those in need during COVID-19 challenges. Unlike the other corporations that succumbed to pressure of these destroyers of our country, Pres. Unanue is not afraid to stand up for what is right and for the good of the hispanic minorities who will be positively impacted by Pres. Trump’s business and educational project for Hispanic people.
 
WE MUST STAND UP AS SILENT MAJORITY INSTEAD OF BEING AFRAID TO DEFEND AND PRESERVE OUR COUNTRY!!!!

Supporting Goya by buying their products for your own use is great — buying their products to donate to a food bank or other charity is even better :). There is a movement already out there calling for people to do just that! Two birds with one stone.

I’m a Hispanic legal immigrant. Got my US Citizenship while serving in US Army (May 1972). I used to be a Democrat. The Democratic Party is unrecognizable. I became an Independent in 1987 and have voted conservative since then. This is no longer the party of John F. Kennedy, but the party of haters, which embodies incongruent elements such as Islamists, the LGBTQ Community, persons of the Jewish Faith, all ready to hurl the most hateful ethnic epithets at those of us who are supportive of our President, Donald J. Trump & his programs. Democrats are all to ready to engage in word abuse, calling Illegal Aliens immigrants. That’s like saying persons illegally squatting on one’s property are tenants or renters! I have been a user of Goya products for Decades and will continue to be one, even more so now that they are being subjected to an attempt to torpedo Goya Foods & put THOUSANDS of employees in New Jersey, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Spain out of work. Many of these employees are themselves Hispanics. The Left has become what Mao Zedong described as a “Democratic Dictatorship”. It is dangerous, autocratic, America-hating & violently intolerant. No one but those in this dysfunctional organization who are in it for personal enrichment, or to commit acts of violence, mayhem, destruction of property, arson, can reconcile the Democratic Party’s incongruent elements: Christian, Jewish & Gay-hating radical Muslim Fundamentalists; LGBTQ Community; a large portion of the Jewish Community. Antifa is the Left’s answer to Adolf Hitler’s Brownshirts. BLM is four (4) different Delaware Corporations, not a grass roots movement. It is run by persons who subscribe to the Marxist Philosophy. Neither of these three (3) organizations is for sane, patriotic, liberty-loving people.

I believe the Democratic Party has taken too sharp a turn to the left, under their two so-called ‘leaders’, Pelosi and Schumer. I just said to my wife, who was going out on a grocery run, to buy “GOYA” products. She agreed. Unfortunately, the democrats are concentrating on the wrong things instead of working for our (theirs too)country! BUY GOYA!!

I can’t eat spicy foods, but I managed to find many things on their website to place a decent-sized order on Friday night. I do like the idea of placing an order to go to a local food bank. I’ll do that this week.

These idiots are so hypocritical, it’s truly PATHETIC. Apparently, they don’t seem to care just how stupid they look to most of us, and all these MORONS, (nicest word I could use here without the FB police blocking my post), calling for the boycotts of GOYA food products, seem to forget, that he also did an event similar to this with the Obama’s. Oh, that was OK, but God forbid he show the same courtesy to President Trump, then GOYA be damned. I think it’s HIGH TIME, the American people stand up to all of these idiots that think they can throw their weight around, badger and basically blackmail companies to give them money, when in reality, they are all anarchists, who are bound and determined to take our wonderful Country down the path of Socialism, which is nothing more than Communism in sheep clothing!!! (My apologies to the sheep of the world).

Funny, the dems say they want prosperity for minorities but did nothing to make it happen and when President Trump does it they attack him and all who support him. How’s that helping minorities. Also just wondering, where are all the silent republican politicians on this?

My wife and I have purchased Goya products in the past and have found them to be of excellent quality. We didn’t know or care that it is an Hispanic owned company. We did purchase some extra goya items when we went to the store yesterday and will continue to support this company.

thank you Goya for standing up to people like AOC who truly dont love our wonderful country and the freedoms it provide. Thank you also for defending the free way of life and presenting yourself as a brave American. I too will be purchasing your products as often as possible and will watch for those who support the left.

i use Goya products so i am going to boycott New York and any products produced there that i can recognize. Also I refuse to travel to California and Minnesota because of their liberal politicians. Or should I say Marxist politicians. They are using the same political weapons Hitler used to gain power in Germany. Sending violent people to peaceful demonstrations to disrupt and take over these protest for political gain.

This is probably some of the best advertising Goya has ever gotten, and it’s all FREE. I never noticed the brand before. It was just not on my radar. But you can just bet I’ll stock up on the canned goods now.
 
BUY GOYA!!

Robert Unanue at Goya, is what America should be sanding for. These people do not understand that if these tyrants get through conservatives/America loving people, they are going to be the slaves and starving to death and homeless. The rulers they blindly followed will live high on the hog at their useful idiots/cancel culture/thugs/bullies expense. Thank you GOYA for standing up for what is right and just. #GoGoya

I opened the pantry door this morning to find several cans of the Goya product on the shelves. My wife purchased them yesterday at the grocery store. She said that she bought them to support the company president who supported President Trump. She will do so in the future. Needless to say, our family is absolutely against the cancel culture crowd who wants to limit any form of free speech.

Mr. Unanue is an honest, stand-up guy who deserves our support. I have always purchased Goya products because they are consistently high quality and I like them, but now I will purchase even more. Mr. Unanue has proven he is our “brother” and we must support him. Kudos to him.

Hopefully this will turn out like when the liberals tried to boycott Chick-fil-a back in 2012 when CEO Dan Cathy expressed his Christian view on marriage.
I wish I would have had the foresight then to buy Chick-fil-a stock.
Buy Goya stock!

I have supported Goya products for over 3 decades, and always will. Great value top quality products.
But, I have will never again watch anything on AMC, after watching a show the other night they ran a trailer of all the organizations they support and who do you think was at the top of their list… BLM. Yup the far left’s favorite domestic terrorist group ! BOYCOTT AMC. And the rest of the list was nearly as disturbing.

We’ll buy Goya brand. We don’t make a habit of making our own Spanish food. We’ll usually out out to Mexican restaurant. However we do make chili every now and then. From now on only GOYA products will go in our homemade chili. GOYA products are usually in the ethnic isle of the store, not with other products such as bean or rice. Oh Boy Ya, Buy GOYA! Let’s cancel the cancel culture now and on November third. But GOYA to donate to your local food banks. STAND UP FOR YOUR COUNTRY.

I am so proud of the Goya C.E.O. for being honest about President Trump. Also, VERY PROUD OF HIM, that he didn’t
back down. It is sad that many leaders of other companies and sports teams DON’T GUTS TO STAND UP TO THE
ANTI AMERICAN ANARCISTS. It is time that the good people of this country stood up to the lunatics who are trying to
destroy our great country. God Bless the folks at AMAC.
