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.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
