Goya CEO Robert Unanue sounded off on the incoming dangers of left-wing extremism during a recent segment aired on Fox Business.
Unanue began the segment by going over his incredible life story. He comes from a family that chose to become Americans. Attracted to the American traditions of self-reliance and economic freedom, Unanue learned to thrive in this truly revolutionary environment. Now, he sees politicians threatening to tear down everything that made his own success possible.
Communism, he says, isn’t really that far away if these same politicians are allowed to amass more power. However, he remains hopeful that Americans are seeing the light — noting the mass exodus from blue states like California and New York to anti-lockdown red states like Texas and Florida.
You don’t have to look very hard to verify Unanue’s statements. Despite taking a less restrictive approach to the pandemic, Florida has managed to keep its economy alive and its residents are getting honest paychecks from their labor. By contrast, California has had to shut down its economy several times, and doesn’t appear to have a cohesive strategy for a recovery.
But make no mistake, this doesn’t mean states like Florida and Texas are going to be safe forever. There is an incoming administration that made bold promises for far-left support. This is bad news for pro-freedom state governments.
Unanue was hit with a boycott from leftists after he praised President Donald Trump back in July, saying Americans were “blessed” to have the commander-in-chief’s pro-freedom policies at the time. New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez vocally supported the boycott. However, Unanue says his sales actually sharply increased during this period, leading him to refer to the New York lawmaker as “employee of the month.”
