Rep. Joaquin Castro Tweets List of San Antonio Trump Donors, Including Retirees

Rep. Joaquin Castro Tweets List of San Antonio Trump Donors, Including Retirees

“Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnYTmir0x20

While Julian Castro is busy trying out-progressive the entire Democrat presidential field, his twin brother, Rep. Joaquin Castro is publicly shaming local business owners who made max contributions to Trump’s re-election campaign.

Tuesday, Castro’s campaign account tweeted:

Castro was applauded by radio show hosts and others:

 

Despite numerous requests to delete the tweet, Castro doubled down:

And kept digging:

At the risk of overplaying the This is Why We Have Trump™ card, This is Why We Have Trump™. Elected officials, who are elected to represent their constituency and work for the people, use their platform to intimidate, malign, and threaten the livelihoods of the people they’re supposed to be looking out for.

Worse still, Castro didn’t name them as individuals by name only, but associated them with the businesses they either own or in which they’re invested. It’s a clear attempt to attack local businesses and prompt calls for boycott because of political affiliation alone. A completely anti-American tactic through and through.

Senator Cornyn, for the win:

So who is inciting violence again?

    Violence, bullying… even violating our sacrosanct privacy law. #HateLovesAbortion, Castro.

      AG Barr should launch a DOJ civil rights, voter intimidation investigation into Rep. Joaquin Castro. It would be my hope that an investigation would reveal that Rep. Joaquin Castro is in direct communication with ANTIFA or their bankers, just like San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo supported and used ANTIFA, exactly like the Democrat Party used their KKK, or German National Socialist(NAZI) Sturmabteilung aka Brownshirts & Benito Mussolini’s blackshirts.

    Eastwood Ravine in reply to Pasadena Phil. | August 7, 2019 at 12:17 am

    This is beyond inciting violence. What Castro is inciting no less than civil war. The goal is outing opponents to remove them from the public square and civil society to suppress who they would politically support.

    When the ability to respond civilly is gone, the only way to respond is with uncivil action.

      Precisely. The goal is thuggish intimidation and vilification of Americans who reject Leftist orthodoxies, in order to cow such Americans and to make them “pay a price” for their legitimate and honestly-held political and economic beliefs.

      These tactics, coming from a Dhimmi-crat officeholder, are utterly despicable and smack of rank totalitarianism.

Gee… another Democrat Party Progrom. This is not random nor spontaneous. This is a very dangerous calculation by the Party. They are willing to create a flashpoint at the cost of innocent lives.

Obama and the Party were willing to assist in the murder of Mexican nationals to influence gun control in the US. That threshold was crossed though unsuccessful. When is the next threshold going to be crossed?

Is Plakas heading down to San Antonio soon?

Castro is an asshole. THEY ARE INVADERS!!!!!

Yet again we see it. In The Coming of the Third Reich, historian Richard J. Evans explains how, in the early days of National Socialist Germany, Stormtroopers (Brownshirts) “organized campaigns against unwanted professors in the local newspapers [and] staged mass disruptions of their lectures.” To express dissent from Nazi positions became a matter of taking one’s life into one’s hands. The idea of people of opposing viewpoints airing their disagreements in a civil and mutually respectful manner was gone. One was a Nazi, or one was silent (and fearful).

Today’s fascists call themselves “anti-fascists.” Just like the Nazis, they are totalitarian: they are determined not to allow their opponents to murmur the slightest whisper of dissent. Forcibly suppressing the speech of someone with whom one disagrees is a quintessentially fascist act.

    They’ve made an error that is certainly tactical, but also may be strategic. They’ve continually failed in their attempts to disarm their political opposition.

    They keep playing like this on edge of the abyss and things wind up going majorly kinetic?; Don Castro and his brother may find out that events could wind up going where they really don’t want them.

    oldgoat36 in reply to pfg. | August 7, 2019 at 5:35 am

    Not really much different than what the left did during the Bolshevik revolution either. Those who lead that revolution intended for the various groups to band together in happy utopia and rule in soviets, they just had to kill off the current ruling class. Then the second revolution came between the factions who were “ruling equally”.
    It will always be the ends justifying the means, and with the aid of a propaganda media. The violence and deaths are “not wanted”, but “necessary” for pushing through to their goals.
    Those who put these types of government the left are hankering for are purged later for the purity of the movement, and unlike the Third Reich where economic circumstance improved because it was already tanked and had nowhere but up to go, the Bolshevik revolution took a stable economy (though those on the lower tier class weren’t doing particularly well) and crashed it. They stole, murdered, and destroyed all in their wake to bring everyone (except the most precious ruling class of comrades) down to the lowest common level. Those who saw it was worse than ever and gave voice to it, well, for the sake of the purity of the intentions just had to be silenced.
    And these things always are driven by a low number of extremely vocal people who create and build hatred up to a fever pitch so the killings are “justified”.

      Should the commies win, most of these “useful fools” now leading the charge will be the first to be lined up before a wall and shot. They will never get to the communism part because, as Lenin pointed out, communism doesn’t work. Toppling a government is messy. In the end, a totalitarian tyrant emerges from the violent chaos that always ensues to “restore the peace”. Utopia is finally achieved as abject poverty makes us all equal as we all stand in lines all day, every day.

when they go low, we go …., err maybe not

notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital | August 6, 2019 at 7:38 pm

Well at least we now know which SA business to patronize.

Remember many of them will have online representation and sales.

And I’m sure Castro would loudly cry foul were anyone to doxx supporters of more radical Dmoecrats.

Sue the bastards. This is public disclosure of private information, coupled with defamation.

Rep. Joaquin Castro is trying to get somebody killed.

    amwick in reply to Valerie. | August 6, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    I am no expert but anyone can look up this information on https://www.fec.gov/

    I just did to verify the tweet. It is an interesting website to use… You have to play around with the filters, but here:

    https://www.fec.gov/data/receipts/individual-contributions/?committee_id=C00580100&contributor_city=san+antonio&two_year_transaction_period=2020&min_date=01%2F01%2F2019

    Don’t get me wrong.. it was an awful thing to do.. but it looks like public information to me.

      Paul in reply to amwick. | August 6, 2019 at 8:45 pm

      You’re right, it is public information. However, the way that he’s tweeting it out, especially in the aftermath of the recent shootings, certainly seems like an attempt at intimidation at best, and a call to violence at worst.

      The funny thing is, this little Marxist wannabe doesn’t even understand Texans. He’s making “the silent majority” even more pissed off.

      And he’s just a lying little bitch… anyone with two functioning brain cells understands that Trump is not calling IMMIGRANTS invaders… he is calling the vast hordes of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS invaders. Honestly, they’re coming by the millions. What they hell else would you call it?

      And oh yeah, shut your sniveling little mouth Castro, you’re nothing but an America-hating Marxist Reconquista Bitch.

      CincyJan in reply to amwick. | August 6, 2019 at 9:01 pm

      It took you far more trouble to access that list than it would take to find addresses, once you have the name and town.

      Valerie in reply to amwick. | August 6, 2019 at 9:39 pm

      So? People’s names and addresses are in the phone book, too. But publication of a person’s name and address in an effort to harass them, is called doxxing, or publication of private information.

      It is actionable. Even publication of a politician’s home address is actionable.

        Milhouse in reply to Valerie. | August 7, 2019 at 2:18 am

        No, it is not. It is public information, and it is everybody’s legal right to publish it. Nice people don’t.

          alaskabob in reply to Milhouse. | August 7, 2019 at 2:30 am

          Now if only those people are harassed and no one else then he facilitated that harrassmant. It is like the concentration camp issue….always a legal out with a fringe definition. If anything happens maybe a Portland milk shake is needed.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | August 7, 2019 at 3:01 am

          The Supreme Court has explicitly protected the right to take down and publish the names of people who break a boycott. For what purpose do you suppose that is done, if not so they will be harassed? But the first amendment protects the right to do so.

      Aarradin in reply to amwick. | August 7, 2019 at 1:43 am

      He’s basically calling for violence against them.

      They’ll get death threats for sure, lots of them, at a minimum.

      He knows this, and that’s why he doxxed them.

      How is this not a felony?

        Milhouse in reply to Aarradin. | August 7, 2019 at 2:20 am

        What felony could it be? The information is a matter of public record. It’s supposed to be open. And he did not advocate violence, though even that would be protected speech and thus couldn’t be a felony. It certainly doesn’t come within 100 miles of the definition of incitement. So on what grounds could it be prosecuted?

          dystopia in reply to Milhouse. | August 7, 2019 at 6:47 am

          All depends on intent. If you disclosed public information to a stalker of a celebrity; with knowledge of his obsession; and that celebrity ended up injured at the stalker’s hands as a result of that information …..

          Was the purpose of Castro’s disclosure to promote harassment?

      alaskabob in reply to amwick. | August 7, 2019 at 2:35 am

      Some “Hispanic” names there donating to Trump. But those seen above are not Hispanic names. Hum…. Inference only Anglos like Trump…another big lie?

Castro was, is and will ever be an ass.

For the record, I live in northeast San Antonio, near Thousand Oaks and Perrin-Beitel.

So, Castro is racist. It’s illegal aliens, not limited to a diversity class. That said, emigration reform to mitigate the progress of immigration reform and collateral damage at both ends of the bridge and throughout.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to n.n. | August 8, 2019 at 4:24 pm

    An entitled racist. His district should receive immediate intense ICE action.

Patchogue New York Fliers Read ‘Death Camps For Trump Supporters’

Fliers hung on street posts and parking meters in Patchogue read “Death Camps For Trump Supporters Now!”

https://patch.com/new-york/patchogue/patchogue-fliers-read-death-camps-trump-supporters

The first name on Joaquin Castro’s list of Trump financial supporters is that of a retired woman. I would feel threatened if my name appeared there. He has definately made her a target. It is very easy to get someone’s address on the internet, not to mention a map. Given the recent shootings in El Paso, this is reprehensible. Furthermore, this is a clear call for one party rule and it must be opposed. I wonder if this is not cause for an ethics complaint. I thought he was supposed to represent Republicans, too.

Mass insanity from the left keeps going beyond what any sane person could have reasonably thought.
That said, hey goofy, why you avoiding publicizing the illegal alien mass murderers?

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/08/it_seems_that_journalists_and_other_democrats_only_care_about_deaths_that_fit_their_agenda.html

The AP couldn’t even bring itself to call him an illegal alien in its story. He was just a man from Dallas. Calling him an illegal alien would have not fit the agenda. He killed more people than the shooter in Dayton.

Lawsuits allege a Dallas man already charged in the deaths of 12 elderly women also killed six other elderly people, which would bring the victim total to 18.
————————-
In July, 22 MS-13 gang members were arrested for killing at least 24, more fatalities than those killed in El Paso. There was minor coverage, but I do not remember any of the Democrat candidates for president commenting or being asked about these gruesome killings. Why weren’t Democrats asked about these killings? Why wasn’t Governor Newsom asked if the Democrats’ open immigration policies contributed to the deaths? I guess these deaths just don’t fit the agenda, so the media do their best to hide them.

What do you call people who butcher people to death for fun and cut out hearts?

The Friendly Grizzly | August 6, 2019 at 9:42 pm

Just another Latino wanting a banana republic form of government.

What a turd! This mimics hoodlums protection rackets: “That’s a real nice store you have, it’ed be a shame if something happens to it.”

In the Dem/Prog world, he’s a leader and protected by the dinosaur media.

Frezz in the hizzy | August 6, 2019 at 9:45 pm

Wow…. public servants doxxing private citizens for their political beliefs. This is a bad direction to be going in and it scares the shit out of me.

Are there any moderate, clear-thinking dimms left? I pray we stand up at the voting box and clear out some of these freaks.

StandingAthwartHistory | August 6, 2019 at 9:55 pm

I think we should thank Mr. Castro for his service to the community. Until I read this, I had not thought about Bill Miller’s BBQ all week. Mmm… BBQ and sweet tea!

Apparently, Bill Miller’s website has apparel and other items for sale: https://www.billmillerbbq.com/shop/

I’m thinking I need a hat, a travel mug, or a t-shirt…

    Colonel Travis in reply to StandingAthwartHistory. | August 6, 2019 at 11:41 pm

    As a Texan I just gotta keep it honest.

    1.) Julian Castro is a jackass.
    2.) Bill Miller’s BBQ isn’t that great.

      retire05 in reply to Colonel Travis. | August 6, 2019 at 11:49 pm

      Both Castro brothers are jackasses. But what do you expect from the spawn of one of the founders of La Raza?

      healthguyfsu in reply to Colonel Travis. | August 7, 2019 at 12:53 am

      You take back #2!

      (Ok the BBQ isn’t that great but the country sausage is and the breakfast tacos and where else can you get a literal bucket of tea for 5 bucks?)

    2nd Ammendment Mother in reply to StandingAthwartHistory. | August 7, 2019 at 4:52 pm

    I just got back from a week in SA and Bill Miller’s is one of our nostalgic “must stops”. We found it in the days when we were traveling with small children and needed to feed everyone on a budget. BM never disappointed us.

    Beyond that, I know from experience that Bill Miller’s has stores in almost every part of San Antonio, not just the better off parts of town that can command top dollar for a meal. Their family style offerings don’t break the bank and beat the heck out of McDonalds.

    Then there’s the fact of the thousand or so folks they employee and all the local charities they fund…. those are the people the Castro Brothers are planning to torch as an example to not defy their manifest destiny or some such stupidity.

Antifundamentalist | August 6, 2019 at 9:58 pm

As far as I know, Trump has not called legal Hispanic immigrants any names at all. The term “invader” is appropriate to persons who enter a place without permission. Typical Left to hijack the dictionary to create a false rhetoric with outright lies.

Just more proof that anyone not a lefty is under attack, from our own FBI/DOJ/IRS to the prog politicians trying to turn Antifa type attacks on us.

I hope the commie castro brothers get exactly what they have coming.

If someone breaks into your house and enters without your permission, what do the police call that? A home INVASION.

Dox a Senator, and you go to jail – even for doxxing Republican Senators. Conviction was just a few weeks ago.

Dox ordinary citizens that donate to politicians and its laudable?

Seems felony bad to me…

    Milhouse in reply to Aarradin. | August 7, 2019 at 2:39 am

    Dox a Senator, and you go to jail

    The crime is publishing restricted private information (defined as “Social Security number, home address, home phone number, mobile phone number, personal email, or home fax number”) of a “covered person” (defined as any federal employee, juror, witness, informant, officer of a federal court, etc.) or their immediate family members. Not only are campaign donors not covered, their names, employers, and amounts donated are by law public information, which everybody is supposed to know. That’s the whole point of the campaign finance transparency laws. Secret donations to candidates’ official campaigns are illegal (though one can donate secretly to groups that are unaffiliated with ones preferred candidates but independently support them).

    Milhouse in reply to Aarradin. | August 7, 2019 at 2:58 am

    By the way, the law you are referring to is almost certainly unconstitutional and unenforceable. Jackson Cosko went to prison for burglary, unlawful entry, identity theft, unauthorized access to a government computer, and several related charges, so it probably wasn’t worth his while to challenge this one charge.

    But as the decision I linked to above says:

    For decades, the Supreme Court has broadly held that “[p]ublic records by their very nature are of interest to those connected with the administration of government, and a public benefit is performed by the reporting of the true contents of the records by the media.” Thus, several cases demonstrate that the First Amendment protects the right to publish highly personal information of private individuals, such as the names of rape victims and juveniles involved in legal proceedings, when they relate to matters of public concern. [Footnote: See, e.g., Florida Star B.J.F. (1989).]

      alaskabob in reply to Milhouse. | August 7, 2019 at 10:45 am

      Is doxxing people not related to legal cases and exercising their rights the same as the public interest in legal cases? I would suggest that full disclosure of all donations to all parties is legal but selective publishing with intent to shame or intimidate is not. Remember that SCOTUS shut down Budh-Gore because of selective recounting and not general recounting.

        Milhouse in reply to alaskabob. | August 7, 2019 at 11:00 am

        Nope. That’s not how it works. Bush-Gore has nothing to do with it; that was a 14th amendment case, which doesn’t apply at all to private actors. Castro’s motive here is obvious, but legally irrelevant; what he did is awful but lawful.

smalltownoklahoman | August 7, 2019 at 6:13 am

Well, if any of these people also donated to a Dem candidate before Castro just insured they won’t ever again! Real voter intimidation, almost as bad as those armed Black Panther members standing watch over the places people went to vote several years ago in Philly.

    Well, if any of these people also donated to a Dem candidate before Castro just insured they won’t ever again!

    One hopes. But they might also start giving to Dems for “insurance”. The real purpose, though, would seem to be to deter others from giving to Reps.

Just another lefty a**hole, up to his usual tricks. But will he have to answer for it? I’m not optimistic.

JokeBoy needs to have a welt on the side of his face from being slapped like a mosquito.

So vile and disgusting. Attempting to shame and to intimidate Americans for exercising their political beliefs and First Amendment rights.

This is how totalitarian jackboots act. The Dhimmi-crat apparatchiks are utter scum, the lowest of the low.

This guy should be tied to a post between the maniacs he is trying to unleash and the victims he is trying to hurt.

If this isn’t incitement, what is? AG Barr?

Moon Battery | August 7, 2019 at 4:35 pm

Hi Folks, I’m not a lawyer but in a more recent post on this site it seems Strzok was arguing that releasing his personal tweets was a violation of “The Privacy Act of 1974 “prohibits the disclosure of a record about an individual from a system of records absent the written consent of the individual, unless the disclosure is pursuant to one of twelve statutory exceptions.””

Would a similar violation have occurred here? Thanks….

2nd Ammendment Mother | August 7, 2019 at 4:57 pm

So in light of the political rhetoric directed at Conservatives this past week and the efforts to inflame emotions

Then this particular mostly ignored headline (story is actually worse)
“Antifa Says It’s Coming to Texas on September 1st”

Why do the liberals think they stand a chance of disarming us?

texansamurai | August 7, 2019 at 8:10 pm

believe gov abbot expressed the thoughts of many texans recently–if antifa do indeed show up armed and determined to cause their usual mayhem then can say pretty much for certain that many of them will not ever be leaving
