    The Goya Foods free speech controversy, explained

    ...
    Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said on Friday that a growing boycott of his company in response to his recent praise of President Donald Trump amounts to a “suppression of speech,” tapping into the president’s ongoing narrative that liberals are proponents of an oppressive “cancel culture” that punishes those who exercise their right to free speech.
    ...
    Calls for a boycott emerged after Unanue said that Trump was an “incredible builder” and that the US was “blessed” to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday meant to highlight a new advisory commission on creating economic opportunities for Latinx Americans. The praise elicited criticism from progressives, and a boycott campaign of Goya Foods backed by prominent political and cultural leaders like Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda rapidly spread across social media.
    ...
    In an interview on Fox & Friends, Unanue argued that the online campaign revealed a double standard, pointing to the fact that he attended a healthy eating initiative at the invitation of former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama in 2012.

    “So you’re allowed to talk good or to praise one president, but you’re not allowed, when I was called to be part of this commission to aid in economic and education prosperity and you make positive comment, all of the sudden that’s not acceptable,” Mr. Unanue said.

    “So I’m not apologizing for saying — and especially when you’re called by the president of the United States, you’re going to say, ‘No, I’m sorry, I’m busy. No thank you.’ I didn’t say that to the Obamas, and I didn’t say that to President Trump,” he added.
    ...
    Unanue’s comments have turned Goya Foods a left-right proxy war

    Unanue, the head of the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the US, appeared at the White House on Thursday to announce that Goya Foods would be donating a million cans of chickpeas as well as a million pounds of food to food banks as part of the Hispanic Prosperity Initiative, a new advisory commission created by Trump which is tasked with increasing Hispanic access to economic and educational opportunities.

    When Unanue spoke at the Rose Garden event at a podium just feet away from Trump, he did not just announce his donation, but also offered praise of the president, likening him to his own grandfather, a Spanish immigrant who founded Goya in 1936.

    “We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder,” he said. “And so 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 to grow.”

    We spend an exorbitant amount of blood, sweat,and tears on 15 percent of the population. Somehow that must be an injustice.

    I guess that means they're not racially biased or hypocrites.

    I miss your usual cutting edge cartoon commentary. Life is too short for all of this strife.

    There is some good news, however; if the Dems win we can hold them responsible for everything.

Or the demands to unfund the police forces in major cities?

    Sure I have, but according to the nevertrumpers, all of that is Trump's fault!

    Trump isn't funny at all.

    Trump is a corrupt and incompetent who is hurting the country.

    Trump is kind of a comic relief break from the more serious stuff.

    We'll see of course, but so far, on balance, that is how Trump will fight for his reelection. Expect more of same.

    Given how poorly this year has been for Trump, the only thing he can campaign on is race and identity politics, so get used to this for the next 4 months.
