Despicable: Rep. Joaquin Castro Doxxes Dozens of Trump's Donors on Twitter
It's no secret that the Democrat-Media complex is going all out to recapture the White House for Democrats in 2020. While the MSM puts a negative spin on virtually everything President Trump says and does, Big Tech is suppressing conservative voices online. Not ones to leave anything to chance, the agenda-driven media has also gone after Trump's allies to send the message that it's not worth the risk to openly support this president.
This is why the Washington Post has resurrected the discredited Russia hoax to smear moderate Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as a Russian stooge.
The question on many minds is just how low will Democrats go?
Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) may have answered that in a recent tweet. In an effort to publicly shame the president's supporters, Castro -- who is the campaign chairman of his brother Julián Castro's failing Democratic presidential campaign -- doxxed 44 private citizens in the San Antonio area who donated to Trump’s re-election campaign.
“Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump — the owner of @BillMillerBarBQ, owner of the Historic Pearl, realtor Phyllis Browning, etc.,” Castro tweeted from his campaign account Monday night. “Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’”

The information is public record and accessible online, but most people don't spend their time searching for the political donations of private citizens. Democrats do this for one reason and one reason only: to dog-whistle to their thuggish supporters, as well as their allies in the Deep State, to harass and bully their opponents' donors.
Conservatives on Twitter reacted with disgust:
You don’t have to support the Democrats, but just know that they’ll try to destroy you if you don’t.

Wow dude, you're garbage.

If any of these donors are physically harmed. Castro shares some of the blame.

This is exactly why I've moved away from disclosure of donors and all campaign finance reform/limits. This doxxing of donors and their companies is used for one thing. To get them hurt.

This is not a good look for your brother.

Political candidates should not be holding up law-abiding private citizens for public ridicule and opprobrium. Period. Shame on you, Joaquin Castro.

Democrat elected officials have now compared our Border Patrol agents to Nazi camp guards, called for sending law enforcement to homes to confiscate weapons, and published the names and employers of Trump supporters.
You’re NEVER getting my guns.

Such despicable skullduggery is not, of course, anything new for Democrat politicians. In 2012, former president Barack Obama posted an enemies list of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's donors.
Team Obama's "Keeping The GOP Honest" website was ostensibly part of its “Truth Team” effort to enlist Obama supporters to call out "Republican lies."
The website publicly identified and smeared eight private individuals – or in the Truth Team's own words -- “high-dollar and special-interest donors” that “Mitt Romney is relying on…to fund his campaign.”
Some of the individuals were listed as "Donors who benefit from betting against America" while others were categorized as "special interest donors."
After each name, the campaign listed deeds that they find “less-than-reputable” or reflective of being “on the wrong side of the law” or making “profits at the expense of so many Americans.”
Frank VanderSloot, an Idaho businessman who contributed to a group supporting the Romney campaign, found out up close and personal what it was like to be put on an enemies list by spiteful Democrats. VanderSloot quickly found himself being audited by the IRS and the Department of Labor.
"Just 12 days after the [Obama campaign] attack, the Idahoan found an investigator digging to unearth his divorce records," reported Kimberly Strassel of the Wall Street Journal.
"This bloodhound—a recent employee of Senate Democrats—worked for a for-hire opposition research firm," she added.
That opposition research firm was none other than Fusion GPS, the shady outfit retained by the DNC and Clinton campaign to dig up dirt on candidate Donald Trump.
