Many took to social media to express their displeasure with Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue after he praised President Trump at a White House event on Thursday, but others are flipping the narrative and calling for a Goya Foods "buy-cott.""My brother came up with a terrific idea and I am encouraging all to join me in purchasing $10 worth of Goya Foods products and donating them to your local food bank," self-described "conservatarian" radio host Mike Opelka wrote on Twitter. "Let's push a BUY-cott, not a boycott. Let's show the #Goyaway people what compassion can do.Opelka's post received 27,000 likes."Go out today and buy your Goya foods,"

I have been burned a few too many times by companies saying the right thing, and then folding a couple of days later under lie-beral fascist pressure. I will never forget how the Susan G. Coleman Foundation folded to the murderers at Planned Parenthood. That cost me a $50 donation. If Goya stands firm a couple of more days, I will be stocking up my pantry with their products!!!!!

I had put a can of S&W beans in my shopping cart yesterday. Then I swapped it out for a can of Goya beans. This was in support of Goya. I'm unaware of any reason I should have a problem with S&W.

It never ceases to amaze me how otherwise intelligent CEO's of corporations fold like cheap suits to BOTS from the left ! Any threat of boycott from a real live human being on the left should be taken with a grain of salt , after all the lefty bozos are notoriously cheap and most are in mom and dads basement.

I went to the Goya section at walmart and bought everything I though I would eat. Spent about $40 cause a loaded up for a good cause. I bought the malt beverage, UGH. Could not get through one small bottle. Anyone live in The Woodlands and want 5 free bottles of Goya malt beverage? Been scarfing the beans, cookies, olives!

Only part of the article I disagree with is donating them to a food bank. The corrupt, lying media will portray it as people getting rid of the stuff in protest. Donate something else instead. Went to the store the last 2 days and bought Goya. Never have before.

Made a quick trip to Kroger today; in the Goya section I realized that I would have to go way outside my comfort zone to buy their major bean products. But I found their little section on cookies and glommbed right on to those! Nice little stacks of crackers; just right for a snack when you don't want to open a 5 pound sack of cookies. Just 8 to 10 vanilla cookies + chocolate frosting between. So reasonably priced, buy several!

More than two dozen shootings across New York City over the weekend left a one-year-old dead and at least 34 others injured, some potentially fatally, dwarfing the number of people killed there by the coronavirus during the same period.It appears that over the weekend, particularly that fateful Saturday that left the one-year-old dead, NYC residents had a higher chance of getting shot than dying from coronavirus.While NYC has largely tamed the lethal and highly contagious coronavirus, another epidemic is starting to rear its ugly head in the city once again — violent crimes.

It’s unclear when a new name will be revealed for one of the league’s oldest franchises. USA Today, ESPN, The Washington Post, Washington Times and Sports Business Journal reported Sunday night that owner Dan Snyder is set to “retire” the name. Yahoo, on Saturday, reported a name change was imminent. The team launched a ‘thorough review’ of the name July 3 that the NFL supported.

As for baseball, let’s be honest. It’s boring to watch and it’s even boring to play. Ordinary people who aren’t being paid to play baseball cannot endure it except by playing it co-ed with beer, which makes practically anything endurable including watching paint dry. About 90% of baseball consists of the players standing around while touching their privates whenever the TV camera is pointed at them or sitting around the dugout pretending to watch the other team while touching their privates. They often spit. Why do people pay to see millionaires lolling about in a park and hiding in a little concrete bomb shelter while spitting and touching their privates?

During the 1930s and 1940s, there were many genuine communists, as well as fellow travelers, working in Hollywood. Once the Cold War began, Hollywood turned against those people and instituted its blacklist, which made it impossible for anyone with communist sympathies to work openly in Hollywood. Of late, the further left you lean in Hollywood, the more you are to be applauded. That’s why it’s incredibly ironic to realize that Hollywood is once again blacklisting people – only this time, blacklisting means that the only people listed for employment have to be black.

Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was lampooned for suggesting that the recent 130% spike in deadly NYC shootings was due to coronavirus-induced unemployment — and not on her and other Black Lives Matter operatives’ reckless campaign to “Defund the Police.” AOC (aka – “Bronx Bolshevik“) made the disingenuous comments to deflect blame for the mass slaughters of black people occurring in Democrat-run cities around the country. In a virtual town hall meeting on Zoom, AOC desperately tried to shift the blame for the alarming surge in shootings and murders in Democrat-run cities where police have been pulled back.
