Toyota will no longer permit its political action committee to donate to Republican legislators who objected to certifying the 2020 election results but has no problem offering donations to Democrats who objected to certifying the Republican presidency in 2016.

In a statement released on Thursday, Toyota claimed it is “committed to supporting and promoting actions that further our democracy” but clearly stated that while “our company has long-standing relationships with Members of Congress across the political spectrum,” some candidates would be banned from receiving funding.

“We understand that the PAC decision to support select Members of Congress who contested the results troubled some stakeholders. We are actively listening to our stakeholders and, at this time, we have decided to stop contributing to those Members of Congress who contested the certification of certain states in the 2020 election,” the company said.

The decision came days after a Washington Post opinion article berated the carmaker for giving approximately $56,000 to nearly 40 “insurrectionist lawmakers” as found in a recent report.

“A Toyota spokesman told me the company ‘supports candidates based on their position on issues that are important to the auto industry and the company.’ Apparently, constitutional democracy isn’t one of those issues,” the author stated before asking if anyone would like to purchase his 2017 Toyota Sienna. “I suspect I’m not the only one who won’t be buying a(nother) Toyota. Toyota likes to say its cars are ‘made in America’ — while its actions are unmaking America.”

The Washington Post wasn’t the only corrupt corporate media outlet to rebuke the company for becoming the “Official Car of Insurrectionists.” Axios published an article in June not-so-subtly rebuking the company for continuing to financially support “members of Congress deeply enmeshed in the pro-Trump conspiracy theories that fueled the Capitol attack.”

“Toyota leads companies in election-objector donations,” the headline stated.

At the time, the carmaker said, “We do not believe it is appropriate to judge members of Congress solely based on their votes on the electoral certification,” but later flip-flopped to meet demands from the mob.

In 2016, Toyota’s PAC, created in 2013, donated
