The cancel culture mob's latest target is Goya Foods President and CEO Bob Unanue who committed the unforgivable offense of speaking highly of President Trump.
The nation's largest Hispanic food brand is under attack from a vicious pack of Democrat operatives and Twitter bullies whose economic terrorism in the form of boycotts and organized harassment have struck fear into the hearts of cowardly corporations.
But unlike so many other CEO's who have been reduced to quivering lumps of Jello, this one isn't backing down and on Friday, he defied the AOC-led blitzkrieg on a brand that is a staple in Hispanic households.
The firebrand former bartender whose social media demagoguery has made her into a formidable force for the anti-American insurgency took to her Twitter account to rally the cultural jihadists into a boycott of Goya.
Unanue who was an attendee at the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative was a guest on Fox & Friends where he defied those who would destroy his corporation along with his right of free speech.
Goya CEO Robert Unanue described Americans as "truly blessed" to have Mr. Trump's leadership in an appearance Thursday at the White House held to unveil Mr. Trump's "Hispanic Prosperity Initiative." Not long after, #BoycottGoya, #GoyaFoods and #Goyaway began trending on social media platforms.
Goya Foods issued a statement later in the day that did not mention any of the hostility. Instead, an unrepentant Unanue repeated his backing of Mr. Trump's Hispanic Prosperity Initiative, established by executive order at the event.
"Our country faces a time of historic challenge but we will meet that challenge together and continue to work towards greatness, focus on a strong recovery, and hold onto the hope for a healthier future for all," Unanue said in the statement.
Unanue was more blunt on Fox News Friday morning, telling the conservative-leaning network: "I'm not apologizing." The calls for a boycott of his company's products were an attempt at "suppression of speech," he added.
"I'm not apologizing for saying — and especially when you're called by the president of the United States — you're gonna say, 'no I'm sorry I'm busy no thank you?," Unanue said. "I didn't say that to the Obamas and I didn't say that to President Trump."
By pointing out the hypocrisy of the left which did not utter a peep when he has a guest of former President Barack Obama, Unanue threw mud in the mob's eye while the complicit media was silent that a prominent minority-founded business was being unfairly attacked by racist insurrectionists.
Realizing that Unanue's defiance could serve as an inspiration to other corporations against the un-American organized pressure campaigns, Democrats were quick to double down on their calls for a Goya boycott.
- With the onslaught against Goya Foods, Democrats and their attack dogs are running the risk that such a demand could backfire and alienate a Hispanic demographic who are the biggest consumers of the company's products and who may not simply fall in line.
