Default Dem Rep. Joaquin Castro: Here’s a list of the names of max Trump donors from my home

Hey Trump-haters!...I'm an actual politician getting paid by the taxpayers!!!...Here's a list of people for you to target!!!...

Dem Rep. Joaquin Castro: Here’s a list of the names of max Trump donors from my hometown, to do with as you wish

Quote:
Note that this is Joaquin, not Julian. The former is a congressman from San Antonio, the latter is his identical twin brother, the former mayor. Julian’s the one running for president.

Joaquin is, however, his brother’s national campaign chairman.

Now that we’ve gotten that straight: Is this A-hole out of his mind?


Quote:
“Not surprised a Castro would go after political dissidents like this,” sniffed Siraj Hashmi.

I won’t reproduce the entire tweet as I don’t want to republish the identifying information. Suffice it to say that there’s a list attached with the names — and employers — of 44 people from San Antonio who gave the maximum allowable by law to Trump. Many are retirees. They aren’t all rich, I’d bet: The max individual donation to a campaign under federal law is just $2,700, a sizable amount but one within the means of someone who’s middle-class, has a nest egg, and is very enthusiastic about a politician. Castro’s not targeting people who can afford their own private security, in other words. He’s leading the most rabid anti-Trumpers, the sort of people who’d very much care to know who’s donating to Trump, right to the office doors of the “offenders.”

“If a Republican member did this,” tweeted Luke Thompson, “it would lead the nightly news.” Unquestionably. We were reminded of the truth of that statement just a few hours ago, in fact. Sarah Palin’s defamation suit against the Times stems from the fact that the “crosshairs” electoral map she published before the 2010 midterms was cited — baselessly — by liberals afterward as possible inspiration for Giffords’s shooter. For the left, scapegoating Palin was a way of making a point about how political rhetoric can amount to incitement when it gets hot enough and when specific people are designated as targets for it. We must be careful with what we say, and of whom we say it, lest damaged minds take the wrong cue and lash out.

...Trump’s campaign spokesman is incensed, and rightly so:

Quote:
Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh is demanding Castro delete the post.

“Democrats want to talk about inciting violence? This naming of private citizens and their employers is reckless and irresponsible. He is endangering the safety of people he is supposed to be representing,” Murtaugh told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Inevitably, some righty will retaliate by publishing a list of max donors to some Democratic candidate who’s promoting open borders. And as Thompson says, that one certainly will lead the news.

The defense will be offered to all this that Castro is reproducing information that’s already public. Campaigns are required to tell the FEC who their large donors are in quarterly submissions; those submissions are publicly available. He’s not telling anyone anything they couldn’t find out on their own with a little googling. Indeed, but the same is true of a stalker digging up information on his victim: Names, addresses, and phone numbers of people are public information and are widely available in Internet people-finder databases. The offense isn’t that Castro published private information, the offense is that he used his platform as a public official to amplify it knowing full well how his audience will abuse it. He’s a congressman openly encouraging harm, whether economic or otherwise, to people who exercised their right by supporting a political candidate. He’s supposed to protect his constituents, not victimize them. He should be censured by the House for this. In the meantime, two can play at this game. And inevitably will, to everyone’s detriment.

I don't think Bernie etc supporters are interested in doing harm to these people, just not patronizing their businesses.

While it is wholly within their rights to patronize who they want, or not, for their own personal reasons.

It's scummy politics when a politician makes a point of highlighting people who support a politician they don't like.

What has been lost is it's become the who can you hate more, rather than what the politician can do for the community. And this is what people want to vote for?

He has put peoples lives at risk being a partisan political hack. There is no defense for his tweet. He is a congressman who is publicly known. It doesn’t matter if this was public information or not, he just exposed these donors to hundreds of thousands of people and all it takes is one crazy person to go after one of them. Shame on you Joaquin.

Except for the Bernie Sanders campaign worker who tried to assassinate Republican members of Congress at baseball practice. Except for the thugs who rioted so violently in Chicago 2 police officers were injured so they could shut down a Trump rally after which they pranced on stage brandishing Bernie posters. Except for the Dayton gunman who wanted socialism.

Antifa thugs brutally assaulted a reporter in Portland sending him to the hospital while the police looked on. His offense? Doxing some of the members of the gang. But don't worry, nothing violent is going to happen when a Democrat politician baits Leftist thugs.

Oh sh-t he copy-pasted publically available info from fec.gov.

The criminal.

Are the pearl clutchers aware that people and campaigns and groups have been "outing" big donors for opposing politicians/interests since basically forever? I'm surprised that the "f-ck your feelings" crowd would be so offended that proud Trump supporters are known to be proud Trump supporters.

Sorry, not a scandal, not even close to a whiff of one.

I'm glad Joaquin Castro isn't backing down or apologizing.

Democrat committee Congressional committee chair Maxine Waters exhorts a crowd to form a mob to make sure Trump officials know they are not "welcome". Democrats look the other way as Antifa violently attacks "enemies". A Bernie bro attempts to assassinate en mass Republican members of Congress. But it's "pearl clutching" when Democrat Presidential campaign manager issues a target list of Trump donors.

We have been treated to a barrage of lies claiming Trump's rhetoric is responsible for mass shootings and the existence of white supremacist kooks but there is no reason to be concerned with dehumanizing Trump donors.

Yes we know you would say the same thing if it was Trump giving out addresses at one of his rallies.
