Paybacks are hell. The least-like senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and a fine runner-up Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) coasted around the Senate on an electric anti-American carpet. They not only supported the attack on Capitol Building, they helped encourage it. Raw greed for power is ugly, its stench nearly overpowering.
Google has decided to take a patriotic stand. Its plan will hit these and other legislators who voted against certifying the 2020 presidential election after, let’s repeat that, after the Capitol Insurgency, according to a scoop by Axios.
The legislators walked back into the House and the Senate after five people lost their lives due to the angry mobsters. Instead of claiming that sedition aka treason was wrong, they voted against certifying President Joseph (Joe) Biden’s presidential election.
Google will not make contributions from its political action committee this cycle to any member of Congress who voted against certifying the results of the presidential election after Donald Trump tried to halt proceedings using a mob he weaponized against the American government.
This not just a one-and-done effort. A number of big corporations, including Amazon, AT&T, and Comcast, either paused or completely ended political donations on January 6. Trump invited his ultra-right-wing followers to Washington DC. Then, he stood before the thousands upon thousands of rally attendees, whipped them into a deadly weapon, and aimed them right at the Senate and House.
Facebook paused its donations and is looking into its political donation policies. Microsoft also paused its political PAC. Its deadline for incorporating employee suggestions is February 15. At that time, Microsoft plans on deciding whether it will halt “donations to members of Congress who voted against certifying the election results.”
Google spokesperson José Castañeda said:
‘After the disturbing events at the Capitol, NetPAC paused all contributions while undertaking a review. Following that review, the NetPAC board has decided that it will not be making any contributions this cycle to any member of Congress who voted against certification of the election results.’
Other organizations that paused their donations after the riot have yet to release their next plan of attack:
‘After an internal review on its political contributions following the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, which was spurred by unsupported claims from former President Trump and his allies that the 2020 election was rigged in favor of President Biden.’
Google released a statement and shared it with Axios and Reuters via one of its spokespeople:
‘Following that review, the NetPAC board has decided that it will not be making any contributions this cycle to any member of Congress who voted against certification of the election results.’
Five people died during the swarming movement of the mob, including a Capitol Police officer. He sustained injuries while responding to the rioting, and a plainclothes officer shot a woman who failed to respond to his requests to halt.
Congress returned to cast their votes that evening after the Capitol Building was made safe by the police. The legislators were not willing to give the Donald any advantage.
