A pro-Trump business leader has been silenced. Robert Unanue — President and CEO of Goya Foods — had his own company board vote to censure him last week after he called the election "unverified" in an interview on Fox Business.
Unanue stated, "I think this is mission accomplished ... for ushering in the dawn of a New World Order — this great reset — with an unverified election. And the big prize is the United States."
The board banned Unanue from speaking to the media without permission. Unanue is one of several prominent businessmen known for supporting Trump — alongside Mike Lindell, founder of the MyPillow Company. Lindell was recently banned from Twitter owing to his pro-Trump stance.
After Goya's board silenced him, Unanue told the New York Post he's also decided for himself to "walk away from speaking about politics and religion."
A source told CNN the Goya board has wanted to rebuke Unanue ever since he spoke positively of Trump at a White House event in July, saying, "We're all truly blessed, at the same time, to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder."
Left-wing cancel culture immediately went after Goya Foods following that remark. Many leftists — including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) — called for a boycott. The congresswoman tweeted, "Oh look, it's the sound of me Googling 'how to make your own Adobo,'" referencing Goya's line of all-purpose seasoning.
But the controversy wound up giving the Hispanic food company more publicity, and the attempt to cancel Goya fell flat on its face. Unanue mockingly named AOC the employee of the month because her call for a boycott actually put sales through the roof.
Though a leftist politician failed to silence Unanue, cancel culture finally caught up to him in the corporate boardroom.
