After murderous adherents of Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6 with the express intention of overturning the 2020 election, many corporations announced changes to their political spending.
This week, we learned that Boeing has resumed contributing to several Republican members of Congress who voted to overturn the 2020 election.
In a statement once their renewed spending was uncovered, Boeing admitted that whether politicians are trying to undermine our democracy is irrelevant to the company’s political spending and that all that matters is whether those politicians can help Boeing make more money.
Good grief. Some things are more important than your profits. One of those things is our democracy. It is shameful, selfish, and short-sighted to put your greed before the very survival of our democracy. Boeing should discontinue its political spending altogether. At the very least, you should be able to muster the courage and morality to never give another dollar to any candidate or elected official who perpetuated the Big Lie that Donald Trump won the 2020 election, who encouraged the January 6 insurrection, who voted to overturn the election, or who is actively undermining our democracy through legislation that makes it harder for Americans to vote.

We must stop the billionaire Koch brothers from using their immense wealth to influence university research and spread their corporate-friendly ideology.
