Democrat Congressman Joaquin Castro represents Texas’ 20th Congressional District which includes parts of San Antonio. Joaquin Castro is also the campaign chairman for Julian Castro’s struggling presidential campaign.
Earlier this afternoon Joaquin Castro posted a list that named 44 people who donated the maximum contribution allowed by law to President Trump in 2019.
I’ve blocked out several of the names that Castro listed in the tweet itself. Castro also attached a graphic that listed even more donors by name and business.
I flat out refuse to post the tweet itself-I will not help Castro ruin people’s lives. Click on the link if you really want to see who Joaquin Castro named and shamed.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany was not amused.
Joaquin Castro, Congressman & Chairman of Julian Castro’s 2020 presidential campaign, posts a list of @realDonaldTrump donors and private info about where they work.
The Castro campaign should answer for this unacceptable behavior! pic.twitter.com/4Cm0sQqIFu

Naturally, Leftists cheered Castro’s doxing of Trump donors.
What’s the problem? If they support Trump they should be proud of it and want everyone to know about it. Or maybe they are now embarrassed that everyone knows they support Trump? 🤔

What’s disturbing about this isn’t that a Leftist doxed his political opponents in a transparent attempt at intimidating them. That’s a tactic that we have, unfortunately, come to expect with Leftists. What makes this so wrong is the fact that a sitting US Congressman is using his position and visibility as a government official to threaten his opponents into silence.
What happens if/when a crazed Leftist decides to hunt these donors down and teach them a lesson? Will the Castro campaign be found liable for anyone who is injured?
Somehow I doubt it.
