For a good while now I have been concerned that the Democrats would eventually start targeting supporters of President Trump. And now my fears have been realized.
Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) posted a list of prominent Trump donors on Twitter today. The congressman is also chairman of his brother’s presidential campaign.
He outed 44 San Antonio donors – publishing their names and places of employment. Included in the list are many retirees.
At the very least @Castro4Congress is inviting harassment of these private citizens. At worst, he’s encouraging violence.
Will media concerned about “rhetoric” care about this?
He’s listing people and their employers.
This is a target list. pic.twitter.com/5JnNe7RxYb

“Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders,'” he wrote on Twitter.
Republicans immediately accused the Democrats of naming and shaming private citizens – targeting them for their political views.
Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh demanded that Castro remove the posting and apologize. He also called on the Castro presidential campaign to disavow the posting.
“Naming private citizens & their employers, targeting them for political views and exercising 1st Amendment rights,” Murtaugh wrote on Twitter. “At the very least (Castro) is inviting harassment of these private citizens. At worst, he’s encouraging violence. Will media concerned about “rhetoric” care about this? He’s listing people and their employers.”
I have a message for Congressman Castro and his twin brother – gun-toting, Bible-clinging Deplorables will not be bullied.
