Rep. Joaquin Castro, a Texas Democrat, has released the personal information of Americans who have donated to Donald Trump in the hopes that dangerous, radical leftists will target these private citizens for harassment and attacks.
This is exactly what the fascist left wants. They want it to be socially unacceptable to donate to any politician that does not toe the extremist, left-wing line.
This is probably the most un-American tendency of the fascist left, the idea that anyone who supports their political opponents should be open for violence to be committed against them. Liberals are true bownshirts.
According to the Washington Free Beacon:
Castro, twin brother of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro, posted late Monday night on Facebook that he was “sad to see so many San Antonians on this list of maximum donors to Donald Trump.” He specifically called out two companies, including a popular BBQ restaurant, and posted a list of 44 donors, with their full names and employers.
Trump campaign official Tim Murtaugh highlighted the post on Tuesday, calling it a “target list.”
“This is Joaquin Castro, Congressman & chair of his brother’s campaign,” Murtaugh wrote. “Naming private citizens & their employers, targeting them for political views and exercising 1st Amendment rights.”
“At the very least [Castro] is inviting harassment of these private citizens,” he said. “At worst, he’s encouraging violence.”
“Should delete & apologize,” Murtaugh added. “Castro campaign should disavow.”
Only hours before his office released the hit list, Castro was on MSNBC blaming Donald Trump for the recent shootings in El Paso and Dayton.
“A lot of the language that the shooter used is eerily similar to language that the president has used to dehumanize and demonize Hispanic immigrants in this country.” he said to Chris Matthews. “So the president has created this deadly climate where people are acting upon the kind of words and language that he has inspired in them.”
Following along with exactly what Castro had hoped, thousands of liberals began calling for violence against the Republican donors on the list.
For Castro, it was mission accomplished.
