"Don't join mobs intent on evil." (Exodus 23:2, TLB)
For the past 12 years, we have bought
without even knowing what a generous company they have been for the
people of the world. Now more than ever we want to buy more of Goya
products especially after reading about what the leftist-mob intent
on evil wants to do to this beautiful family owned company that
wants to help the poor always.
According to Goya website,
"The premier source for authentic Latino
cuisine, Goya foods is the largest, Hispanic-owned food company in
the United States. Founded in 1936 by
Don Prudencio Unanue
and his wife Carolina,
both from Spain, the Goya story is as much importance of family and
values as it is about achieving the American dream. Goya provides
consumers with over 2,500 high-quality and affordable food products
from the Caribbean, Mexico, Spain, Central and South America. In
total, the company now boasts 26 facilities throughout the United
States, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Spain, and employs 4,000
'The History of Goya')
This is the kind of company that makes me so happy to read about
because of it's desire to place so much importance on the family and
values. Not only that but they have shown, it does not matter what
the color of your skin is, if you work hard in America, you can
achieve the American dream even though the leftist mob wants you to
dwell in the fact of America's systemic racism. It makes me thrilled
to know that they have 4,000 employees working worldwide that can
put food on the table for their families because of the company
being in business.
"Work hard and become a leader; be lazy and never succeed."
(Proverbs 12:24, TLB)
More than that, what makes me excited to buy their products everyday
to support them is the emphasis they have placed on helping
impoverished communities year after year living out biblical
principles through their actions.
According to the Goya website,
President Barack Obama
honored Goya for its continued success
and commitment to the Hispanic community, the only company to ever
be honored by the President. In 2012, Goya collaborated with
First Lady Michelle Obama
and the USDA to launch the MyPlate/MiPlato campaign. In 2017-2018,
the company launched the 'Can Do' campaign to benefit Feeding
America and donated over 1.5 million pounds of food to families in
need across the country. In 2018, Goya was ranked #2 as a leading
U.S. food brand for its social influence and community support,
according to TotalSocial rankings. Through Goya Gives, Goya supports
nearly 300 charitable endeavors, programs, scholarships, and events,
and donates millions of pounds of food to local food banks and
shelters especially during times of natural disasters."
(Goya.com, 'The History of Goya')
If you thought Goya Foods stopped being passionate about Goya Gives,
their passion has only increased during this COVID-19 pandemic that
has wreaked havoc throughout the world.
the president of Goya Foods wrote,
"Dear Gran Familia Goya, We have been faced with an
UNPRECEDENTED NATIONAL CRISIS...This however, is a global storm of
historic proportions!...I am moved with emotion and pride to see
firsthand the incredible reaction, sacrifice, dedication and passion
as we all work tirelessly to provide our NATION with the necessary
food for their tables at home! I cannot express the gratitude,
appreciation and love for our Goya family including our retailers
who continue to work together through this historic moment in our
lives! God Bless you all, our Country, and all Humanity."
(Goya.com, 'Goya Gives')
What an awesome president of the company whose love for God,
country, and humanity can be seen not only through this letter but
by the company's actions through Goya Gives by living out biblical
"Goya Gives not only demonstrates our
corporate/social responsibility but solidifies our dedication to
social causes and the values we hold true to the foundation of Goya
Foods. It is also a way for us to interact with our consumers and
customers by encouraging them to participate and to help others in
need. In March and April 2020, Goya donated over 300,000 pounds of
food, equivalent to over 270,000 meals, to organizations, food
banks, food pantries and soup kitchens, as well as over 20,000
protective masks across the nation to those facing hardships during
the COVID-19 pandemic."
(Goya.com, Goya Gives)
The biblical principles lived out by Goya Foods reminds me of these
verses from the Word of God:
"When you help the poor you are lending to the Lord--and he pays
wonderful interest on your loan." (Proverbs 19:17, TLB)
"Happy is the generous man, the one who feeds the poor." (Proverbs
is as the Scriptures say: "The godly man gives generously to the
poor. His good deeds will be an honor to him forever. For God, who
gives seed to the farmer to plant, and later on good crops to
harvest and eat, will give you more and more seed to plant and will
make it grow so that you can give away more and more fruit from your
harvest. Yes, God will give you much so that you can give away much,
and when we take your gifts to those who need them they will break
out into thanksgiving and praise God for your help. So two good
things happen as a result of your gifts--those in need are helped,
and they overflow with thanks to God. Those you help will be glad
not only because of your generous gifts to themselves and to others,
but they will praise God for this proof that your deeds are as good
as your doctrine. And they will pray for you with deep fervor and
feeling because of the wonderful grace of God shown through you.
Thank God for his Son--his Gift too wonderful for words." (2
Corinthians 9:15, TLB)
When you think about what all Goya Foods has done for famished
families, COVID-19 communities, etc, who would want to boycott them?
You need look no further than the cancel culture culprits of the
These culprits care more about their hatred
towards President Trump
than providing for the poor and needy. It does not matter to them
that their beloved president Obama and his wife honored this company
for their passionate giving. It does not even matter to them that
this is a Hispanic company that not only helps Hispanics succeed but
wants to see all humanity succeed. All they care about is their
seething venomous hatred towards Trump that they cannot stand that
praised and supported Trump's endeavors for the Hispanic community.
Because of Unanue's support of Pres. Trump, they want the company to
fail. In their desire for the company to fail, they could care less
of the 4,000 employees who could lose their jobs if the company goes
bankrupt. They could care less of the Hispanic and Black communities
that Goya Foods has helped so much through their generous giving.
That should show you, for all the talk about being for Blacks and
Hispanics, they will throw them under the bus too if anyone supports
Let it be known that it is this leftist mob
that is racist. For all the talk about Trump being a racist, their
actions towards Goya speak louder. Trump has shown his love for the
Hispanic and Black community by the programs he has implemented in
his 3.5 years in office, than they have done all their years in
politics. You need to look no further than former vice president
Democratic presumptive presidential nominee
who has been in politics for 47 years only to
show the oppression he has caused for the Black community with his
writing of the worst crime bill in US history that incarcerated
Blacks compared to Trump's First Act which has exonerated so many
Blacks to help them. Not only that, the left has pandered so much to
so many communities where they are like the
Piped Piper of Hamlin.
People have followed them only to be disappointed and used.
There are atleast 20 cities run by the left that are going down the
drain while Trump has asked to be given a chance and has done so
much for the Black and Hispanic community in 3.5 years and plans to
do more if Hispanics and Blacks give him a chance for four more
Unanue was right in accepting Trump's offer
to come and speak at the White House because Trump wants to help the
Hispanic community with 'the
Hispanic Prosperity Initiative' meant to improve Hispanic American's
access to educational and economic opportunities.'
(IndianExpress.com, 'Explained: Why are people boycotting Goya foods
in the US?')
It is an initiative filled with truth that will help the Hispanic
community that we can be proud of!
"Mr. President, what can I tell you? I'm so blessed to be here
in the most prosperous country in the world, the greatest country in
the world. And we're so blessed to have you as our leader, as we
continue to build this country and make it the most prosperous
nation in the world."
(IndianExpress.com, 'Explained: Why are people boycotting Goya Foods
in the US?')
The leftist mob cannot stand that Unanue
praised Trump internationally with his words
'so blessed to have you as our leader'
and praised America with these phrases:
'I'm blessed to be here in the most
prosperous country in the world, the greatest country in the
world,... and make it the most prosperous nation in the world."
So, what does the leftist mob bent on evil do?
Ask for a boycott of Goya Foods!
They don't care for the havoc wrecked upon famished families,
COVID-19 communities, etc that have depended on Goya Gives as long
as a supporter of Trump goes down! How sad and evil! The Lord will
not be happy with those asking for a boycott looking for Goya Foods
"Evil men take aim to slay the poor;
they are ready to butcher those who do right." (Psalm 37:14, TLB)
"Never oppress a poor hired man,
whether a fellow Israelite or a foreigner living in your town. Pay
him his wage each day before sunset, for since he is poor he needs
it right away; otherwise he may cry out to the Lord against you and
it would be counted as a sin against you." (Deut 24:14-15, TLB)
If the company fails, the poor man suffers without wages and every
person boycotting Goya Foods will be held responsible when the poor
man cries out to the Lord against them and it would be counted as a
sin against them.
"Lord you see what they are doing. You
have noted each evil act. You know what trouble and grief they have
caused. Now punish them. O Lord, the poor man trusts himself to you;
you are known as the helper of the helpless." (Psalm 10:14, TLB)
"For the needs of the needy shall not
be ignored forever; the hopes of the poor shall not always be
crushed." (Psalm 9:18, TLB)
"The Lord replies, "I will arise and defend the oppressed, the poor,
the needy. I will rescue them as they have longed for me to do."
(Psalm 12:5, TLB)
"He is the refuge of the poor and humble when evildoers are
oppressing them." (Psalm 14:6, TLB)
"The poor shall eat and be satisfied; all who seek the Lord shall
find him and shall praise his name. Their hearts shall rejoice with
everlasting joy." (Psalm 22:26, TLB)
"Rescue the poor and helpless from the grasp of evil men." (Psalm
"For he stands beside the poor and hungry to save them from their
enemies." (Psalm 109:31, TLB)
"But the Lord will surely help those they persecute; he will
maintain the rights of the poor." (Psalm 140:12, TLB)
"Anyone who oppreses the poor is insulting God who made them. To
help the poor is to honor God." (Proverbs 14:31, TLB)
"Don't rob the poor and sick! For the Lord is their defender. If you
injure them, he will punish you." (Proverbs 22:22, TLB)
"If you give to the poor, your needs will be supplied! But a curse
upon those who close their eyes to poverty." (Proverbs 28:27, TLB)
For all the talk about Democrats being for the poor, they are the
ones caving to the leftist mob and cancel culture without opposing
Have you seen Democratic presidential nominee Biden come out against
the boycott of Goya Foods?
Of course not!
He should have been the first to speak out against it to protect the
poor especially in light of former Pres. Obama and former First Lady
Michelle Obama praising Goya Foods in 2011-2012. He won't because
his principles go to the base that will give him the votes. How sad
"God blesses those who are kind to the poor. He helps them out of
their troubles." (Psalm 41:1, TLB)
How true it is because the boycott of Goya
Foods is not working. On the contrary, the buy-cott of Goya is
making waves. The Goya Challenge asking consumers to buy Goya and
donate it to food banks, etc is taking off. There are supermarkets
that are limiting the buying of Goya foods to only 2 per customer to
keep it in stock as shelves are being emptied. Thank you Jesus!
More than that, it
pleases me to know a GoFundMe page has raised $250,000 to buy Goya
Foods to help food banks, etc.
Who is for the poor, the left or right?
It brings me great pleasure to see
and the Pres. Trump
promote Goya Foods, with a picture, whose purchase will help the
4,000 employees worldwide, famished families, and COVID-19
communities of the poor and needy!

It is more exciting to find out that Unanue's brother Peter Unanue,
the executive vice president of Goya Foods donated $100,000 to the
National Right to Life Victory fund
that fights to protect the unborn! Thank you Jesus! It was
wonderful to see Pres. Trump speak at the March For Life 2020.

Will you join me in buying Goya Foods to help the needy whether you
are a Trump supporter or not?

I ask my friends, to vote Trump into office unless you want the
cancel culture to rule. This cancel culture won't even care for the
poor that the Bible so strongly talks about.
Who is helping the poor with their initiatives?
Who is helping Hispanics with the Hispanic Prosperity Initiative?
It definitely is not Biden and the left but Trump and Unanue!
It pleases me to hear the words of Unanue who
said, "It gives me great honor,
and bu the way, we're all truly blessed at the same time to have a
leader like President Trump, who is a builder, and that's what my
grandfather did. He came to this country to build, to grow, to
prosper. 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 grow."

Leader Like Trump)
GO GOD! GO GOYA!
In closing, Goya Foods has lived to the ideals of the Biblical
principles below while the left continues to propogate anti-biblical
principles such as oppressing the weak, making false accusations,
and spreading viscious rumors against those they hate.
My friends, what will we stand for when the dust settles?
"I want you to share your food with the hungry and bring right into
your homes those who are helpless, poor, and destitute. Clothe those
who are cold, and don't hide from relatives who need your help. If
you do these things, God will shed his own glorious light upon you.
He will heal you; your godliness will lead you forward, goodness
will be a shield before you, and the glory of the Lord will protect
you from behind. Then, when you call, the Lord will answer.
'Yes, I AM here," he will quickly reply. All you need to do is to
stop oppressing the weak and stop making false accusations and
spreading viscious rumors! Feed the hungry! Help those in trouble!
Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness
around you shall be as bright as day. And the Lord will guide you
continually, and satisfy you with all good things, and keep you
healthy too; and you will be like a well-watered garden, like an
ever-flowing spring. Your sons will rebuild the long-deserted ruins
of your cities, and you will be known as 'The People Who Rebuild
Their Walls and Cities.'" (Isaiah 58:7-12, TLB)
"And I was a constant example to you in helping the poor; for I
remembered the words of the Lord Jesus, 'It is more blessed to give
than to receive." (Acts 20:35, TLB)
Reddy's Right Rhetoric takes you into the
world of Goya Foods and its generous givings while the leftist mob
asks you to oppress the poor they serve by boycotting Goya Foods
instead of buy-cotting Goya Foods. Let us Go for God, Go for Goya!
