Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue said on Friday he is not surrendering to a boycott over his stop by at the White House.

"We're all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder," said Unanue, who's of Latin descent, at the White House event.

"We were part of a commission called the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative and they called on us to be there to see how we could help opportunities within the economic and educational realm for prosperity among Hispanics and among the United States," Unanue told the media.

Behind Mexico, the United States is the second-largest Hispanic country in the world behind Mexico.

Liberal Hispanic-hating politicians and airhead Hollywood celebrities are boycotting Goya, the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the country due to the CEO's praise of the president.

But the American public is doing the contrary and everywhere, New York to California, Goya products and services are flying off shelves as consumers who have perhaps not previously purchased Goya products and services are this now to get the CEO and President Trump.

On Saturday afternoon at a Giant grocery store in Severna Park, Maryland, a quiet DC suburban community that is not exactly a hotbed of Latin culture or residence, Goya products were quickly disappearing, as shoppers prepared to make meals with such Hispanic staples as Mojo marinade and classic Latin spices such as coriander and annatto.

Goya has also been a leader in philanthropy, donating countless pounds of products to food kitchens and homeless shelters across the nation.

At the event under consideration, Trump hosted Hispanic leaders at the White House on Thursday and signed an executive order on the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative to use more taxpayer support for private and charter schools and "improve access by Hispanic Americans to education and economic opportunities."

Self-hating Hispanics Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) and failed former Democrat presidential candidate Julian Castro of Texas pathetically tried to curry favor with Anglo-Saxon liberals by bowing and scraping ahead of the altar of political correctness.

To no avail, as their cowardice and Quisling behavior only cemented their image as craven sellouts of the culture practiced by people of their particular heritage. Though one must admit, as both are of Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage respectively, a savory Cuban and/or South American meal may be beyond their culinary ken.

In alliance with the Uncle Tacos, a number of comically stupid superstars took aim at Goya on social media marketing with hashtags like #BoycottGoya and #GOYAWAY. Many urged people who use Goya products and services to start buying foods made by the company's competitors. As reported early in the day, Americans are doing the opposite, which will show the respect most Americans have for the counsel of the Hollywood crowd.

Goya CEO Unanue called the pushback a "suppression of speech." Unanue said he was previously invited to the White House for a conference 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.

He said he is perhaps not apologizing for his remarks supporting Trump's economic policy and wouldn't normally turn down other future invitations. Why would he? The Trump invitation and subsequent liberal boycott has made his company lots of money.

Boycotts can often backfire from what was intended.  It's not worth taking the chance of declaring a boycott.  I experienced a boycott back in Toronto a long time ago, when it was around Passover, and people were out buying Israeli kosher Passover wines.  Some people stood in front of the stores holding "Boycott Israeli Wine" signs.  What happened is the Jewish community and their friends got together and bought up every last bottle of Israeli wine and liqueur in every store and warehouse in Toronto.

You might question the source....  It is quite possible that this is what as known as an "Imposter Site"

https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/the-union-journal/

Reasoning:   Imposter Site, Lack of Transparency
Country:   Unknown

History

Founded in 2019 , The Union Journal is an imposter news and opinion website. They completely lack transparency as location is not revealed, authors do not have bio’s, the   about page   claims they are a financial website (they are not) and ownership is not revealed. The two names associated with the website are Miriam Jackson and Carlos Christian.

Funded by / Ownership

The Union Journal does not disclose ownership. Revenue is derived through advertising.

Analysis / Bias

In review, The Union Journal is an imposter website, meaning it looks like an official newspaper website covering New York City. We are not rating this website for bias because they simply publish anything they can. Here is how it works. They take a credible news story from a source like the New York Times and then run the text through text re-writer (or it is re-written by someone with poor English language skills.) This is apparently done to prevent plagiarism. Unfortunately, this technology is not very advanced, which results in sentences that do not make sense. For example,   here is text   from a   New York Times   story they published: “Rather than the puckish humor she used in jabbing at Mr. Marcos, her more recent tone was often sarcastic.” This is what that   sentence looks like   on The Union Journal “Rather than the puckish wit she made use of in jabbing atMr Marcos, her even more current tone was usually ironical.” And yes, the bunched together text also comes from copying and pasting directly from the text re-writer or so it seems.

Although The Union Journal is republishing real news stories from credible sources they are essentially unreadable after being re-written by a machine.

Overall, we rate The Union Journal Questionable based on being an imposter website that lacks transparency and is unreadable based on using machine based text re-writers or poor writing that is difficult to understand. (D. Van Zandt 1/18/2020) Updated (4/20/20)

I question it about as much you question the plethora of biased, left leaning mass media sources around today.    Which is to say not really at all.

That said, I went to a local specialty Latin/Hispanic grocery store yesterday to check it out.    They had a pretty good stock of Goya products but the proprietor said it has started selling like never before.

Don’t believe it though.    The stories will start really popping soon enough.    Then you’ll have to call all the people buying Goya products racists or some other such instrument of hatred for those who have the temerity to disagree with the leftist manifesto.

Is this more to your liking?

Goya Foods sales take off after liberal boycott

Democrats and Hollywood won't buy Goya. But Americans are buying it in droves.

You too can discover alternate sources if you actually cared, which I know you don't.

Actually, I had not previously used Goya products, but decided I would join the BUYCOTT and get some.

I was pleasantly surprised.  I had some of their Refried Beans with some Tacos we made last night, and they were quite good, and slightly less than the brand we traditionally used.  And the wife has decided that she will use their ChickPeas as a substitute for my refried beans.    

Oh, and as we were in the local HEB doing some shopping yesterday, we got a few dozen cans of other stuff to donate to the SA food bank.   GO GOYA!!!   MAGA to you!!
