Buy Goya Food Products

Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue didn't back down when the Leftwing mob tried bullying him for praising President Trump. We urge CHQ readers and friends to give Goya foods a try – if you are unfamiliar with the cuisines of Spain, Latin America and the Philippines this is your incentive to try one of their recipes. Or you can simply join Mr. Unanue in contributing Goya foods to your local food bank – you will be supporting your neighbors and a corporate leader who refuses to be bullied by the Leftwing mob.

Yes, cancel culture is real — and it's dangerous

Editors, Washington Examiner

There are multiple ways the current climate of cancellation is so dangerous. For one thing, there is no way we can evolve into a more tolerant society if all people are deemed irremediably racist for things they wrote as teenagers and if major publications target non-public figures. Beyond that, however, the spirit of open speech and debate, in which there is an exchange of a wide array of ideas, is crucial to the survival of the republic. Shutting down voices if anybody claims they were offended is problematic when the range of things that are deemed offensive is growing and there is no room for forgiveness.

Cancel the White Men -- And What's Left?

Patrick J. Buchanan, Creators

Not only does our national capital, Washington, bear the name of a lifelong slave owner, so does the capital of Missouri, Jefferson City. So does the capital of Mississippi, Jackson. So does the capital of Wisconsin, Madison. The capital of Ohio is Columbus. The capital of South Carolina is Columbia. Both are named for now-vilified Christopher Columbus. These were among the decisive figures of American history. If all are dishonored, with their statues pulled down and their names taken off cities, counties, towns, rivers, canals, bridges, buildings, highways, roads, streets and dams, then what is left?

Time to Cancel the ‘Cancel Culture’

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

“Cancel culture” is the term used by the self-anointed “woke” for boycotting—essentially turning into non-persons and erasing from public life—people (usually celebrities, but plebes aren’t exempt) who have exhibited what they deem questionable behavior or written something untoward on social media. It’s our version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution: Being blocked on Twitter is the equivalent of being marched around on a stool while wearing a dunce cap. I say—enough already. Let’s cancel the cancel culture. But don’t ask me how. Under present conditions, with the relentless antagonism on social media and the zeitgeist in general, curing cancer may be a walk in the proverbial park by comparison.
