Goya Foods Faces Boycott After CEO Praises Trump, Supporters Respond With #BuycottGoya

Goya Foods Faces Boycott After CEO Praises Trump, Supporters Respond With #BuycottGoya

“So, you’re allowed to talk good or to praise one president, but you’re not allowed to aid in economic and educational prosperity? And you make a positive comment and all of a sudden, it is not acceptable”

https://youtu.be/MnqK5wMR3zw

Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue was at the White House this week with other Latino business leaders, as part of the ‘Hispanic Prosperity Initiative.’

Unanue offered some praise to President Trump and the unhinged left, including certain members of Congress, immediately called for a boycott of his company.

Dennis Romero reports at NBC News:

Goya Foods’ CEO said U.S. ‘blessed’ to have Trump as a leader, and calls for boycott quickly followed

Goya, which says it’s the nation’s largest Hispanic-owned food brand, is facing a backlash after its chief executive met with and heaped praise on President Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday.

On Twitter, #BoycottGoya and #GoyaFoods were trending in the United States, and some Latinos were also using the hashtag #goyaway.

Trump reached out to Latino voters Thursday with a promised expansion of his “Hispanic Prosperity Initiative,” an effort said to include more taxpayer support for charter and private schools, and added tax benefits for “Opportunity Zone” development in urban neighborhoods.

Unanue appeared on FOX News this morning and said he refuses to apologize to the left, noting that he received no criticism when he agreed to appear under similar circumstances with President Obama in 2012:

Unanue called the pushback against him visiting the White House “suppression of speech.” Unanue said that he was previously invited to the White House for an event hosted by the Obama administration for Hispanic Heritage Month.

“So, you’re allowed to talk good or to praise one president, but you’re not allowed to aid in economic and educational prosperity? And you make a positive comment and all of a sudden, it is not acceptable,” Unanue said.

Unanue said he is not apologizing for his remarks supporting Trump’s economic policy and would not turn down other future invitations.

“I didn’t say that to the Obamas and I didn’t say that to President Trump.”

Here’s the tolerant, loving left in action.

This is not going to end any time soon. From now until the election, the left will try to cancel any person or company which does not share their rabid hatred of President Trump.

Make your shopping decisions accordingly.
______________________

I absolutely will. I will join the “buy”-cott of Goya and start putting their items in my shopping cart now.

Good for Mr. Unanue for not backing down.

Sick of these fascists and their made-up “facts” about Trump’s non-existent raaaaaaacist policies. The actual facts show that Trump’s policies are better for all Americans, including black and hispanic Americans. Glad to see some of them are starting to reject the left’s brainwashing and push back against the lies and distortion pushed so relentlessly by the loony left.

Go Goya!

I have no idea what they make but I’m on the way to the store to buy their products.

I just added them to my shopping list for this weekend.

When they tried to boycott Chick-Fil-A we went out and neutralized it with a BUY-cott.
We can do the same now.
I regularly buy Goya because most their products are good quality for a moderate price. For some products I only buy Goya (dry beans for example).

I recommend to try their Sazón Completo (Complete Seasoning)and their Mojo Criollo (a marinade) if your local store carries them.

I always knew Goya as a brand that catered to hispanics. But in recent years I’ve seen TV commercials featuring non-hispanic white families using Goya products, so maybe they are trying to branch out and go mainstream?

Goya, which says it’s the nation’s largest Hispanic-owned food brand

I don’t give a patoot if it’s “Hispanic-owned”—is it American-owned?

I detest cooking but I’ll buy Goya anyway if it’s fellow Americans who are under assault.

    Gosh, I was under the impression you wouldn’t detest roasting and smoking a few leftists now and then. 😉

    An American company. Founded by Spanish immigrants in the 1930s. Now owned by the third generation of the family.

    (According to the company’s web site.)

    They have canned beans you just open and use such as in a salad.

At least he has the character to keep fighting.

Compare that corrupt POS McConnell and that rudderless romney milquetoast Ronna Romney McDaniel (who heads the GOP!).

It’s called: leadership. The GOP ‘leaders’ are hacks, in business via political office.

Don’t give a dime to the GOP. Starve it to the death it deserves. Instead, give to individual candidates, and to PDJT’s campaign.

Goya makes a lot of delicious shelf stable products, if you happen to be stocking your pantry with shelf stable products in advance of tropical storms —or the complete breakdown of civilization.

Goya is an enterprise started by an enterprising Spanish immigrant to Puerto Rico back in the day. It is now headquarted in New Jersey, and still family-owned. My [non-Hispanic] family has bought their canned beans and certain other products for as long as I can remember. The hostility of the immoderate Left now makes me more certain to buy Goya next time I want a can of beans or some taco shells. And if the immoderate Left doesn’t like it, it can kiss my culture-appropriating tok#e$

“…all of a sudden, it is not acceptable…”

Actually, it is part of the plan. Nothing spontaneous.

Hillary advisor- “I will never buy Goya again.” Probably true as he would only shop for bribes.

So, the polls indicate BLM hasn’t made a dent in black support for Trump, and now the democrats are initiating a completely irrational boycott of Latin products?

Liberalism is a very serious mental illness. See Lyle H. Rossiter’s “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness”. Then, you need to read “The Law” by Fredric Bastiat, and “Discourse on Voluntary Servitude”, by Etienne de la Boetie, and “Our Enemy, the State”, by Albert Jay Nock. After a little reading you will be well grounded in the absolute need for a written constitution that guarantees your rights, and limits the power and scope of the federal government. And for foreign affairs, search J. R. Nyquist, a true patriot.

looked to me like most of their stuff was based around rice which I dislike. still, never seen that name up here.

Abortion… cancel culture is a religious virtue of the Church.

RightStuff1944 | July 10, 2020 at 2:57 pm

We are in a war, folks, and the fuel is the ignorance of so many Americans. Look up Benjamin Gitlow, if you want to know about someone who finally saw the light. He licked Lenin’s boots at one time, but see how he evolved, finally.

    Evolved? Show me the fitness function (e.g. religion, moral philosophy, or “ethical” code in a universal frame of reference)!

Hotep.Maqqebet | July 10, 2020 at 3:10 pm

Go to Amazon.com, put “Goya” in the search field, and buy all kinds of cool stuff.

    gonzotx in reply to Hotep.Maqqebet. | July 10, 2020 at 4:26 pm

    No Amazon!
    Go
    To the store
    Amazon already told us he doesn’t like us and could care less, would prefer we not use his services

    So don’t!!!!

I think I’ll go to Kroger tomorrow and buy some of their products.

Also thinking about buying one of Mike Lindell’s Mattress Toppers.

(BTW, we have owned 2 of Mike’s MyPillows for years – his advertising is absolutely correct. They are mine since I paid for them and they are pillows. Beyond that – well, they are pillows).

There is absolutely no truth to the rumor I’m trying to start that their ad campaign in Israel reads, “Goya Foods, for.Goya-sche taste”.

chuckschick | July 10, 2020 at 4:15 pm

Texas here; know a thing or two about Tex/Mex cuisine: Black Bean Soup and Yellow Rice. You won’t be sorry.

I was just at the store, so depressed about wearing masks again in Texas

Anyway, I was in the checkout lane and realized I didn’t buy Goya products so I got out and bought several

I usually do buy their sauces but I bought much more!

I’ve been buying Goya canned beans for a long time. They are the best quality canned beans out there.

But today after hearing that nonsense about boycotting Goya I made sure to buy a couple of more cans of Goya beans for the pantry; even picked up some Goya sphagetti–never bought the Goya brand pasta before.

My Kroger grocery store still has some Aunt Jemima syrup on the shelf. I might buy one of those for nostalgia sake. I didn’t look for Uncle Ben’s Rice—we’re mainly using Texas basmati rice Chez Comanche Voter–although I may see if I can find a box of Uncle Ben’s–again for old times sake.

Just bought some adobo from them in solidarity. Anybody know what adobo is?

Bringing all this negativity to a good man is going to make even more Hispanics vote for Trump in 2020. They know good food and a good man. Most are embarrassed by AOC as they are appalled by the murders in Mexico.

    BierceAmbrose in reply to dunce1239. | July 10, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    Well, the positions are already staked out. All that’s left is clarifying the stark contrasts.

    Call the remainder of this campaign “the starkening.”

I’ll specifically look for Goya canned goods and add them to the survival stash.

theduchessofkitty | July 10, 2020 at 5:32 pm

I’ve seen Goya products in my mother and grandmother’s kitchen as a little girl. I’ve cooked with Goya products for decades.

And I WILL continue buying Goya products!

Dantzig93101 | July 10, 2020 at 5:51 pm

I sent Sr. Unanue an email of support and plan to buy his company’s products whenever the opportunity presents itself.

There are way more Hispanics, the legal, religious, family oriented, and hard working, who LOVE TRUMP.

ScottTheEngineer | July 10, 2020 at 10:28 pm

Buycott is a bad idea. Goyo products are stocked in the ethnic foods section on small shelves. This will cause them to sell out faster than I’d like.
I’ll have to send the wife in to buy all the sacks of masa tomorrow.
LOL…. It’s like toilet paper a few months ago. QUICK BUY IT ALL BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE DOES!!!!.

Their sales are about to skyrocket. I’d like to give a middle finger to the left more often but I only get to vote once a year and I have a job so brick throwing and cop car flipping aren’t in the cards for me.

    Here in FL, the Hispanic products are all over the store, not in one spot. We have a lot of Goya.

    Dunno where you live, but around here (central Va.) Goya is in all the groceries: WalMart, Kroger, Food Lion, Wegman’s, etc. WalMart has the most extensive selection, I think, but there’s no need to go to ethnic food stores if you’re looking for Goya.

Funny, meaning stupid, how liberals thi

nk they’re the only ones who buy stuff. (LI, your comment function is wonky.)

Goya products are great. Their corn meal makes a great polenta. Support Goya against the cancel culture.

How shallow do you have to be to let your consumer choices be dictated solely by the politics of the merchant?

#BuycottGoya

I had already planned to stop by the grocery store to pick up some staples to donate to the local food bank, but read about this last night.

So today, I looked for as many Goya foods as I could find. I guess about half of the things I picked up were made by Goya (the other half were things like pasta and pasta sauce). WalMart has a lot more Goya foods than the local Food Lion did, but I had no desire to drag all the way to WallyWorld in this heat (central Va.) just for this. I even got a bottle of Adobo spice for myself – guess I’ll see if it improves the hamburgers tonight.

I LOVE sticking it to the a Lefties while also doing good. 😀
