Failed Presidential Candidate and Two-Bit Hispanic Race Hustler Julián Castro Calls for Boycott Against Goya Foods
Failed presidential candidate Julián Castro called for a public boycott of Goya Foods on July 9, 2020.
His unhinged response was brought about by Goya Foods’ CEO Bob Unanue’s praise of President Donald Trump.
“@GoyaFoods has been a staple of so many Latino households for generations. Now their CEO, Bob Unanue, is praising a president who villainizes and maliciously attacks Latinos for political gain. Americans should think twice before buying their products. #Goyaway,” Castro posted on Twitter.

David Rutz of the Washington Free Beacon raised an interesting point about Castro’s behavior and how it resembled his brother’s actions from nearly a year ago
His brother, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D., Texas), used the same “think twice” language in August when he defended his decision to tweet out the names and employers of Trump supporters in San Antonio and accused them of “fueling a campaign of hate.” The congressman, who also served as chairman of his brother’s campaign, denied he was encouraging intimidation of Trump supporters.
“I hope donors in San Antonio and donors throughout the country, unless you support the white nationalism and the racism that Donald Trump is paying for and fueling, then I hope that you, as a person of good conscience, will think twice about contributing to his campaign,” he said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
Unanue is a third-generation Spanish-American.
He triggered leftist outrage on July 9 when he said at the Rose Garden that “we’re all truly blessed” to have Donald Trump in the White House.
Unanue received an invitation to the White House to help kick off Trump’s Hispanic Prosperity Initiative, an executive order designed to help out the Latino community in matters of education and economic opportunities.
New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also called for a boycott on social media, tweeting, “Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling ‘how to make your own Adobo.'”
Unanue viewed the boycott campaign as a “suppression of speech.” He told Fox News he accepted an invitation in 2012 from the Obama administration to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month without any form of criticism.
“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, all of a sudden, that’s not acceptable,” he commented.
Political correctness has been weaponized beyond belief. Now, even the most casual of interactions is subject to the criticism of outrage mobs.
America will need to get a grip, lest it wants to descend into complete social chaos.
