Rep. Joaquin Castro Just DOXXED Trump Supporters For Contributing To A ‘Campaign Of Hate’

Written by K. Walker on August 7, 2019

Can you imagine if a Republican had done this? It would spark a month-long news cycle.

But it’s just a blip on the radar because the targets are Trump supporters.

Rep. Joaquin Castro(D-TX) is the twin brother and campaign manager for Democrat hopeful Julián Castro(D-TX). Julián Castro is currently at around 1% according to the latest Quinnipiac poll. Congressman Castro thought it was a good idea to list Trump supporters in the San Antonio area along with their employers and businesses.

Congressman Castro has grown a beard to distinguish himself from his identical twin brother who is running to be the Democrat Nominee. This isn’t the first time that sort of thing has been done.

(It’s just an example, don’t read too much into it, guys. They’re both pretty horrible when they decide to stand on the graves of the victims of the El Paso shooting to attack the President.)

Here is Rep. Castro on MSNBC Monday ratcheting up the political rhetoric in the wake of the El Paso shooting and (surprise) blaming President Trump.

He said, “This presidency has been a cancer on the country. This president has put a target on the backs of vulnerable community.”

That. Is. Disgusting.

But not as disgusting as publishing the names of Trump donors.

That is absolutely vile.

Here is the tweet that is still up on Twitter because this doesn’t count as doxxing, apparently.

Screenshot for posterity in case Rep. Castro finds some shame or Twitter finds some stones. (ClashDaily has made the editorial decision to not include the names of individuals or businesses listed for their safety. However, if you would like to support those businesses that have donated to President Trump, the information is currently available on Rep. Castro’s Twitter account.)

Rep. Castro is defending his list because “the information is publicly available” and he didn’t intend for individuals or businesses to be targeted or harassed.

 

He’s been called out by conservatives on Twitter.

Not just Republicans, though. Some who aren’t on the right but are quite active on social media are calling the move dangerous.

But, Castro has his supporters, too.

Foulmouthed “Squad” member, Rep. Rashida Tlaib(D-MI) has voiced her support which is awkward considering who some of her (rather vocal) supporters are. 

The left is now attacking the right for complaining about a list of people’s names, employers, and businesses publicly posted by a politician because those voters in his district have donated to a political campaign that he opposes.

(Cue the “Republicans Pounce” headlines.)

Sawyer Hackett, the Julián Castro campaign’s national press secretary, said in a statement, “Trump and his right wing enablers whine about publicly available information being released because they want to distract from his role in fueling the kind of racism, bigotry, and white nationalism that we saw in El Paso this weekend. It’s pathetic.”

Under federal law, campaigns must collect and report the names, addresses and employers of all people who donate $200 or more to their campaign. Donors can give $2,800 to a candidate per election cycle.

Interestingly, Rep. Castro’s list doesn’t include any Latino Trump donors.

And Rep. Castro is doubling-down. He doesn’t seem to care that he has now (to use his language) “put a target on the backs” of Trump donors and left them to be harassed and have their livelihoods destroyed by the vindictive #Resist crowd. We’ve seen what they can be like. Just look at what they were doing in front of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s house as the polio survivor recovers from a broken shoulder. They’re awful.

Think twice? Americans that aren’t so keen on President Trump’s tweets had better think twice about putting divisive Democrats willing to dox political opponents into office.

Oh, and by the way, Rep. Joaquin Castro has a tweet that didn’t age well…

He might want to rethink his stance on cyberbullying.

We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.

But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:

“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.

Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
