Trump Supporter Raises More than $115K to Buy and Donate Goya Products


Liberals claim to be tolerant.

Yet if you don’t get in line with their agenda, they will seek to destroy you in any way that they can.

Take the CEO of Goya Foods for example.

Liberals went into hysteria after the CEO, Robert Unanue, praised President Trump for the job he’s doing.

Many even organized boycotts to stop people from buying the company’s foods.

Yet the Hill reports that one man has raised over $115,000 to buy and donate Goya foods in response to the boycott:

A Virginia man has raised more than $100,000 to purchase Goya products and donate them to food pantries in support of President Trump after the brand, which claims to be the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the nation, faced calls for boycott over comments its chief executive made earlier this month praising the president.

The GoFundMe page, created by Casey Harper, a producer for conservative political commentator Eric Bolling, has raised more than $115,000 since it was first launched over the weekend. The page, which calls on patrons to “support Trump & feed the hungry,” initially had a goal of $10,000.

“What if we rise up to say no to cancel culture AND feed the hungry at the same time?” the page reads, while detailing some of the backlash Goya has faced over the past few days over comments CEO Robert Unanue recently made lauding Trump at a White House event earlier this month.

Unanue said the nation was “truly blessed” to have a leader like Trump, who he referred to as an “incredible builder.” 

The comments by Unanue immediately prompted hashtags like “#BoycottGoya” to trend across Twitter, with political figures like former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro calling on consumers to “think twice before buying their products.” 

On his GoFundMe, Harper, who is a former employee of The Hill, writes, “Now GOYA is facing a boycott that could cost the CEO his job. The liberal mob is coming for anyone who disagrees. Cancel culture at its worst. We need to have our voice heard!”

The fundraiser’s overwhelming success comes as some conservatives have taken to Twitter in recent days to voice support for the brand and post photos of Goya products they’ve purchased. 

As the company faced mixed reactions online over its executive officer’s praise of Trump, the president also entered the fray at one point, offering his own endorsement of the brand to his more than 83 million followers on Twitter. 

“I LOVE @GoyaFoods!” Trump tweeted.

Check out some of the positive feedback Goya Foods has since received on Twitter:

Looks like the boycott backfired on liberals!

Instead, all they gave was free advertising to Goya Foods.

Fox Business reports that there's even a "buy-cott" going on for Goya Foods:

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," Fox News host Mark Levin wrote on Twitter.

"Most of these people fronting about a #GOYABOYCOTT either don't use Goya Foods anyways [a]nd most of the ones who do will cave by #NocheBuena," Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., wrote on Twitter along with an "I Love Goya" graphic.

The controversy has inspired some Goya Foods fans to give back. Virginia resident Casey Harper started a GoFundMe on Saturday to buy Goya products to donate food pantries. The page is already more than halfway to its $10,000 goal.

"I'm not surprised we have raised so much because people are tired of having to walk on eggshells in political discourse," Harper told FOX Business. "Also, Americans are fundamentally generous people so a chance to feed the hungry and stand up to cancel culture was an easy win."

Goya Foods touted its charitable giving on Friday after calls for a boycott, including from progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Goya Foods said it has given "two million pounds of food to food banks across the nation who are in desperate need of food for families impacted by COVID19."

Robert Unanue, head of the New Jersey-based company, said Friday the boycott is "a reflection of a division that exists today in our country" that is "killing our nation."
