Failed Presidential Candidate and Two-Bit Hispanic Race Hustler Julián Castro Calls for Boycott Against Goya Foods

Published

on

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.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
