Goya’s Bob Unanue “should be able to speak his mind,” said Papa John’s pizza chain founder John Schnatter while discussing the recent controversy over the Goya Foods CEO’s positive comments about President Trump at a White House event.

“Everybody on the left keeps preaching diversity, unless it’s diversity of thought, diversity of philosophy, or diversity of ideology,” Schnatter told Just the News in an interview. “And if you don’t think a certain way, then you get persecuted. That’s not diversity.”

“Entrepreneurship and creativity and innovation come from independent critical judgment,” Schnatter said, “which is you think for yourself, you believe in yourself, you have independent critical judgment.”

“They’re trying to paint you in a corner,” Schnatter continued, “that if you don’t believe 100% in their ideology, then they persecute you, they attack you. And I think that’s extremely unhealthy for the country. And I think it’s a really bad path for the CEOs to go down. And I think they’re scared.”

Praising President Trump for reducing regulations, Schnatter described him as a “leader.”

“I think that this is probably the hardest working president that we’ve ever had,” he said. “He understands business, he understands entrepreneurship. I mean can you imagine if we had somebody in the White House that was making decisions right now on politics instead of what’s right for Americans, what’s right for America? I mean it’d be pretty scary. I think he makes the right decision for the right reasons.”

    I know I agree 100% because my situation is almost exactly like that of Papa John’s pizza chain founder John Schnatter. Our board of directors sent us all in for diversity training and I was asked to model what a horrible job applicant would do. So I used the N word and C word in front of the class, not because I use that word but because that’s what I imagine the worst kind of person would do in a job interview. I got complaints from everyone from other executives to the training company to some board members. I barely hung on as CEO. I would never use the N word in real life because a lot of our sales come from the black communities, I’m no idiot and I’m no racist. But I took the heat and barely survived.
