The liberal media hate when large firms step outdoors of the woke narrative and help congressional GOP members who thought the 2020 elections had been shady.
Axios’s hit piece was headlined, “Toyota leads firms in election-objector donations.” The outlet took the time to assault firms for supporting political candidates it didn’t like. Automotive firm Toyota reportedly led the pack with $55,000 in donations to 37 “GOP objectors.” For context on how minuscule that’s, Toyota’s whole estimated web value is $236 billion, that means Toyota’s political giving solely accounts for a measly 0.00002 % of its web value.
Axios reminded readers in its “Why it issues” part how “[f]ollowing Jan. 6, large segments of company America rethought their political-giving applications,” to disgrace firms that didn’t adhere to the pattern. Leftist Raw Story made the Axios report on Toyota’s political giving much more ridiculous: “Toyota attracts backlash for supporting GOP insurrectionists: ‘So Toyota would not consider in democracy. Acquired it.’”
Axios took the propaganda a step additional and proposed that Toyota and different firms had been connecting themselves to the Capitol Hill riot. “The brand new numbers counsel some massive firms have determined to keep up help — even for members of Congress deeply enmeshed within the pro-Trump conspiracy theories that fueled the Capitol assault,” Axios mentioned.
Toyota, thus far, has not backed down. An organization spokesman informed Axios that it wasn’t catering to company America’s new woke tradition: “‘We don’t consider it’s applicable to guage members of Congress solely primarily based on their votes on the electoral certification.” Axios whined that Toyota’s donations equated “to 1 / 4 of the bloc that voted to nullify President Biden’s win after the Capitol siege.”
The lede paragraph for Uncooked Story’s Toyota hit piece was case-in-point how the left is keen to spit out excessive craziness for the sake of attacking political beliefs it disagrees with. Uncooked Story accused election-objectors, which included GOP Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO), of being “insurrectionists:”
The automobile firm Toyota is drawing criticism from these on the left for releasing a press release saying that they’re going to proceed to help insurrectionists in Congress.
Liberals on Twitter additionally misplaced their collective minds over Toyota not being as woke as they’re.
MeidasTouch.com suffered a conniption and accused Toyota of sponsoring “sedition:” “.@Toyota, the official automobile sponsor of sedition. Who is able to boycott till they cease funding the Republicans who incited the rebellion?”
This clarification from @Toyota about why they’ve given to 37 members of Congress who voted to overturn the election was taken word-for-word from a memo issued by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in March.
Conservatives are below assault. Contact Axios and demand they cease attacking Toyota for exercising its free speech.
