Recently, we reported on how Democrats are trying to boycott Goya Foods—as Hispanic-owned company—because their CEO thanked President Trump. In response, conservatives and Trump supporters rushed to defend the company. One man started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to buy Goya products to give to hungry families. Here’s what happened next.
Over the years, Democrats and the liberal “woke” crowd have tried to use boycotts and economic pressure to silence or punish those they do not like. Anyone with a political opinion right of center they have gone after. Leftist group MediaMatters tries to get Fox News hosts fired regularly. Gay activists have been boycotting Chic Fil-A for nearly a decade. And HBO Max took down Gone With the Wind, calling the movie racist.
So… how’s that worked out for them? Chic Fil-A is the third biggest fast food chain in America. Fox News continues to dominate in the ratings. And Gone With the Wind quickly sold out on Amazon.
Now, liberals have exposed their true feelings for pro-Trump Hispanics, by calling for a boycott of Goya Foods. One Trump supporter started a campaign to buy Goya products to help hungry families. In just a few days, he’s raised over $100,000.
A man from Virginia has raised more than $100,000 to purchase Goya products to donate to food pantries after the brand was faced with boycott calls when its chief executive officer offered praise of President Donald Trump earlier this month…
“What if we rise up to say no to cancel culture AND feed the hungry at the same time,” the page stated, along with details regarding Goya CEO Robert Unanue’s comments on President Trump earlier this month at the White House…
“Now GOYA is facing a boycott that could cost the CEO his job,” Harper wrote on his GoFundMe page. “The liberal mob is coming for anyone who disagrees. Cancel culture at its worst. We need to have our voice heard!” [Source: Breitbart]
As of this writing, the campaign has raised $150,000 for hungry families. The creator of the campaign had originally planned on buying products from local grocery stores, but due to the amazing response, has been in touch with Goya directly. That’s a smart move, because reports have been rolling in that there’s been such an increase in demand for Goya products at stores, some retailers have had to limit purchases to 2 per customer.
So… yeah, I think that boycott backfired in a huge way.
Liberals threw a hissy fit when Goya’s CEO said we are “truly bless” to have Donald Trump in the White House. Robert Unanue called Trump a “builder” when he appeared at a White House event aimed at helping Hispanic Americans.
Apparently, liberals’ “love” for minorities only extends to those they can manipulate for votes. Democrats aren’t too happy to see Hispanic Americans thrive, when they are thanking Donald Trump.
Kind of a double standard, huh? But that’s in keeping with liberals’ true feelings for people of color and non-white Americans.
Remember, Joe Biden insulted every black Trump supporter, saying “you ain’t black” if they didn’t support him. Democrats have been desperately trying to distract from those comments, with unending coverage of protests and riots.
But they shot themselves in the foot, again, by trying to boycott and Hispanic-owned company like Goya. Hispanic Americans are the chief buyers of Goya products. The company’s been around for decades. To say they are a staple of Hispanic Americans’ culture and cuisine is an understatement. But liberals didn’t bother to take any of that into consideration when they blindly demanded that Goya be boycotted.
This only further proves that Democrats have a shady agenda in regards to minorities and Hispanic Americans.
