Headlines Of 2020…

*blinks*

Goya became the target of a consumer boycott after CEO Robert Unanue praised the president at a Hispanic event at the White House on Thursday last week.

Trump tweeted the next day about his “love” for Goya, and his daughter followed up late Tuesday by tweeting a photo of herself holding a can of Goya black beans with a caption that read, “If it’s Goya, it has to be good,” in English and Spanish.

And the cancel culture cheerleaders are screaming ‘FOUL!’…

“Only the media and the cancel culture movement would criticize Ivanka for showing her personal support for a company that has been unfairly mocked, boycotted and ridiculed for supporting this administration – one that has consistently fought for and delivered for the Hispanic community,” White House spokesperson Carolina Hurley said.

“Ivanka is proud of this strong, Hispanic-owned business with deep roots in the US and has every right to express her personal support.”

Ivanka Trump sent the tweet from a personal Twitter account that does double duty chronicling her work on various White House initiatives.

Good for her.

And her father promptly showed just how little regard he – rightly – has for these modern-day blackmailers:

Trump himself appeared to back up his daughter on Wednesday by posting a photo on his Instagram account showing him in the Oval Office in front of various Goya products arrayed on his desk.

See, corporations? If you stand your ground and fight back, the bullies of cancel culture can’t win.

    I believe that there has been a kind of reverse boycott in reaction to the squealers. People have reported empty shelves when attempting to buy Goya products in support.

    Being the kind of person who tries to see both sides of every argument and at least consider that I might be wrong, I tend to find myself unable to follow the logic in cases like these. There was the case in the UK regarding Yorkshire Tea. A Tory MP likes it therefore I’m going to boycott it because of austerity.

    Linking inanimate things to attitudes is not new.
    My father refused to eat any tinned goods (back in the 1950s) if they were the brand, “Silver Leaf”, as he said that’s a tree disease!
    Otherwise he was (mainly) a rational and logical human.

    Except that, as an ex-officio member of the government what she did was illegal.
