Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue, just announced Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as their company’s “Employee of the month” after the congresswoman spent the summer trying to boycott their products. She ended up spiking record-breaking sales for the products sold by the largest Hispanic-owned food company.
Democrats and the rest of the cancel culture have been calling for everyone to boycott the Hispanic-owned food company after its CEO praised President Donald Trump at the White House roundtable for Hispanic businesses and leaders.
CEO Praises President Trump:
“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder. We have an incredible builder. And we pray. We pray for our leadership, our president, and we pray for our country — that we will continue to prosper and grow,” Unanue said
Goya’s staple food products led to being the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States. They donated over 300,000 pounds of food and 20,000 masks to organizations, food banks, and soup kitchens, as part of the Hispanic Prosperity Initiative, to help families and communities impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Cancel Culture Member:
Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, a loyal member of the cancel culture, was triggered enough to jump on Twitter and declare that she would no longer support Goya foods. “Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling how to make your own Adobo,” the congresswoman had tweeted. Democrats talk about equality and then try to drive minority-owned companies out of business. However, the attempted boycott had the opposite effect.
CEO Unanue Speaks:
On a recent segment of “The Michael Berry Show,” Unanue shared that AOC’s tweet increased their sales by 1,000%. He talked about the naive congresswoman and said that she has some learning to do about the liberals’ double standards. He also pointed out that while Sen. Bernie Sanders is old and still doesn’t get capitalism, there still might be a chance left for AOC.
“Communism works until you run out of other people’s money to spend. We’re not going to be able to do that. It’s interesting that AOC was one of the first people to step in line to boycott Goya; go against her own people, as supposedly a Puerto Rican woman, to go against people of her own Latin culture,” Unanue said.
Unanue said an “employee of the month” recognition was his way of thanking the congresswoman for bringing so much attention to Goya and their adobo, particularly after her “make your own adobo” tweet. He talked about working with both political parties and defending his praise for President Trump. He said he never apologized after publicly supporting former President Barack Obama and wouldn’t do the same for President Trump either.
I bet AOC didn’t realize her own tweet would end up embracing capitalism more along the way. She just can’t help herself.
