Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro, chairman for his brother’s 2020 presidential race, decided to expose numerous Texas donors to Donald Trump. He posted the personal information of people who gave to the Trump campaign online, in an act called “doxxing.” His motives were pretty clear. But he didn’t realize one major mistake he made. He’s probably regretting it now.
In recent years, we’ve seen liberals go on a doxxing spree. But what is doxxing? It’s the act of publicly posting the name and personal information—like the home address—of someone. Liberal groups and even CNN have done this to Trump supporters and Republicans. Doxxing has resulted in violence, as when an attacker assaulted Sen. Rand Paul outside his home. Or the time protestors surrounded newsman Tucker Carlson’s house—while his wife and children were home alone.
The goal of doxxing is pretty clear. Democrats want to expose Trump supporters to violence. By releasing their private information to the public, they are encouraging anyone—including dangerous individuals—to use that information. The reason they do this is to intimidate conservatives: “Do what we say or we will expose you to danger.”
It is an attack on our freedoms in the vilest way possible.
Joaquin Castro, a Democrat and campaign chairman for his brother Juan Castro, decided he had the right to expose top donors to Donald Trump’s campaign. He posted the names of donors from Texas online, revealing their businesses and other private information. The reason was obvious, he wanted to intimidate Trump donors and discourage anyone else from giving to the president’s re-election campaign.
This is an ugly act of election tampering, if you ask me. Castro is using bully tactics to suppress support for the president. The good news is that many people—from the left and right—have condemned this act. President Trump’s campaign demanded Castro delete the information and apologize.
But there’s another fallout from Castro’s wicked scheme. Turns out, some of the people he doxxed had actually donated to his campaigns. Now, they’re rethinking that.
On Wednesday, one of the Trump donors whose name was exposed by Texas Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro had a surprise for the Texas legislator: he has donated to Castro before but he’s through with him now.
Wayne Harwell told Fox News, “I was also on a list of people that gave to Castro and if he dislikes me enough that he wants to put my name out there against Trump, I’m not going to give money to him. Obviously Castro feels pretty strongly against me.” He added, “I’m pretty independent, but I support Trump.”
Castro, the campaign chairman for the presidential campaign of his brother Julian, exposed the names of 44 Trump donors in a tweet. He wrote, “Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump. Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’” [Source: Fox News]
Castro, like the rest of the corrupt left, is accusing Trump and his supporters of racism. That blind and ugly view prevented him from even dreaming that some donors had actually supported Democrats in the past.
You see, Castro, many Americans support Trump because of the work he’s doing for the economy. They’re not racist—neither is the president. In fact, many Trump supporters had backed Democrats in the past, because they thought the left had America’s best intentions at heart.
But by attacking people who could have continued to support you, Castro, you’ve proven that Democrats are the real bigots in our society.
Democrats slander anyone that disagrees with their socialist views. They are using intimidation, lies, censorship, and even violence. That’s the textbook definition of fascism. Yet they have the gall to call Trump fascist!
Castro has lost a supporter after this stupid stunt. Something tells me, he and his brother lost many more. More Americans are turning their backs on Democrats because of sleazy actions like this.
But will the left learn? Will they stop spewing slander and trying to harm conservatives before it’s too late?
Of course not.
