It looks like Toyota is next to go full woke and buy into the cancel culture.
Toyota announced on Thursday that they are stopping contributions to Republican members of Congress who opposed Biden’s certification.
The announcement came after Toyota was criticized by a Lincoln Project ad released earlier the same day.
Toyota was attacked for its donations to 38 of the 147 Republicans who voted against certifying the 2020 election results.

Toyota said on Thursday that it would stop donating to Republicans who disputed the 2020 presidential vote after being the focus of an ad campaign by the Lincoln Project, a group that was founded to criticize former President Donald J. Trump. https://t.co/cVqzlJJIiG

The overly dramatic ad asks questions like, “Why would Toyota support politicians who tried to overthrow the very system that’s been so profitable for them?”
The ad also makes emotional claims: “Toyota has given more money than any company to the seditious politicians who voted to overturn the 2020 election result.”
Check out the Lincoln Project ad below on YouTube:
After the ad was released, Toyota issued its statement to stop contributing to members of congress who contested the election results.
Toyota said the ad has “troubled some stakeholders”.
Fox Business has more on Toyota’s statement about stopping donations to certain Republicans:
“We understand that the PAC decision to support select Members of Congress who contested the results troubled some stakeholders,” Toyota said in a Thursday statement. “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 anti-Trump super PAC’s ad comes after the nonprofit watchdog Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) published a report on June 23 listing the corporations and industry PACs that contributed the most money to the 139 Republican representatives and eight Republican senators who voted against certification.
Toyota has donated a total of $56,000 to the largest number of campaigns or leadership PACs tied to Republican election-objectors – 38 – compared to other corporations.
“Toyota vehicles feature safety detection systems, smartphone integration, and more white nationalism than you might’ve expected,” the Lincoln Project tweeted on Thursday.
The video is part of an ad series from The Lincoln Project that will be released over the coming weeks “targeting the workforces at companies who have broken their pledges to withhold campaign funds to Members of Congress who enabled, empowered, and emboldened former president Trump and the insurrectionists,” the PAC said in a press release.
Corporations have faced mounting pressure to withhold political contributions to certain Republicans after Jan. 6. New GOP-led voting bills and legislation banning minors from receiving certain transgender medical treatment or preventing transgender athletes from competing on girls’ sports teams have added to that pressure.
Toyota did not immediately respond to an inquiry from FOX Business.
More than 30 other companies or industry PACs donated at least $5,000 to election objectors. Nearly 200 corporations, including Toyota, promised to stop or reevaluate political donations following the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.
This move only demonstrates how the Democrats operate by slandering others into submission.
It is unfortunate Toyota backed down to the Deep State’s tactics.
However, it gives we the people insight into the company’s true colors.
And it looks like Toyota does NOT stand for American liberties nor honor political freedoms.
I am pretty sure that’s the recipe for a company I do not want to support.
