The Goya episode and why Trump must be reelected

As my late father used to say, “la bola pica y se extiende,” or loosely translated, the ball hits the ground and keeps on rolling.  It’s actually a Cuban baseball expression about a baseball that lands between two outfielders and rolls to the wall.  It’s used by Cubans when a situation just keeps on rolling without any end in sight. 

Well, the left just keeps on rolling.  They just can’t stand anyone who has a kind word for President Trump.  It’s Trump Derangement Syndrome 24/7! 

Last week, Bob Unanue, the CEO of Goya Foods, went to The White House as part of a proclamation on Hispanic Prosperity.    He praised President Trump and said this:    

“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder,” said Unanue, who is of Spanish descent, at the event.

And then the arrows started coming, from AOC to Julian Castro.  Some in the left are calling for a Goya boycott or “think twice” about buying their products. 

First, Goya Foods is an amazing Hispanic story.  It started many years ago and employed, and continues to employ, thousands of people.  By everything I’ve heard, it’s a good place to work specially for new immigrants who have trouble speaking English.  I recall that they hired lots of Cubans back in the 1960’s and 1970’s. 

Second, boycotting Goya will only hurt the employees and retailers who sell their fine products.  What are AOC and Julian Castro thinking?  Does AOC remember her Amazon stunt and how thousands of jobs went to another state? 

This is what the election of 2020 is about.  On one side, an imperfect President Trump who probably tweets too much but understands that this is a noble country where Goya Foods can be a success story.  On the other hand, the “boycott” people who just want to bring down anyone who thinks differently. 

So I’m voting to reelect Trump.  The choice could not be more clear.
