[UPDATE: TLAIB DEFENDS CASTRO] – Joaquin Castro DEFENDS tweet intimidating and shaming Trump donors

Joaquin Castro is now defending his tweet that intimidated and shamed Trump donors in his district:

It’s one thing for information to be publicly available. It’s completely another for a sitting Congressman to tweet a partisan list of Trump donors in his district and then publish it for the purposes of shaming, harassment and intimidation.

It’s not just people on the right criticizing Castro for this. Here is Maggie Haberman from the NY Times calling it ‘dangerous’:

And Yashar Ali with HuffPo also said it is a dangerous precedent:

The campaign of a member of congress targeting individual donors, and their businesses, to another campaign (and not famous billionaires) is a terrible and dangerous precedent to set. Also, this isn’t even Joaquin Castro’s opponent. Not that it would be ok if it were. Awful

I’m sure there are more, but you get the idea.

It’s time for Pelosi and the House Democrats to censure Castro for this. While it needs to be done, I won’t hold my breath in anticipation.

UPDATE: Guess who just defending Castro…

Without a doubt.

  1. Hmmm, Fidel’s long lost nephew and Rashida Taliban getting together… what a S* show the democRATs have become.

  2. Kind of funny – some of the donors on Castro’s list are also Castro donors. He didn’t realize that anyone would support both himself and Trump. Apparently, the “dual donors” are not happy.

  3. This idiot was on Morning Schmoe talking to Schmoe and some of his Bolshevik sidekicks, he had the gall to say we should leave these victims alone while they plan funerals and grieve.

    What an absolute moron, he says the victims are planning funerals and the country should be focused on that and let them grieve. Well Mr Congressman how about you stop politicizing this tragedy, how about that you pinhead jerk?! You should be thrown out of Congress on your Bolshevik ass!!

  4. I don’t see a problem at all, with posting the donors of any candidate.
    Wasn’t that the compromise reached with Citizen United?

    A corporation is a person and can donate like a person—so says the courts.

    BUT donations are public knowledge, so that we can know who is funding campaigns, and act accordingly with our wallets.

    That is democracy.

    Personally, I would be PROUD to have my name published as a supporter of my fave candidates.
    And if you don’t like it when it happens to your candidate—go ahead and publish the names of the donors to the opposition.

  5. The American people, which especially includes me, are sick and tired of the 24/7 365 depraved hateful vile evil rancid foaming at the mouth anti-American hate, the false racist accusations against Pres Trump, the incessant neo-fascist mobacracy incitement to violence by radical America hating Trump hating Democrats in and of the MSMedia and Congress !!!!

    Nov 2020 can’t come soon enough for me !!!! which will see Pres Trump re-elected in a massive landslide, and Democrats lose the House, again !!

  6. What we have here is a desperate Democrap, a very sad thing for all to see…. They will do anything to be heard

  7. In a just world, Trump would be able to sue Castro for libel and slander. Trump has targeted no one and has not used ‘racist’ language at any time ever. He HAS, however, attempted to enforce laws that were enacted by the Congress of the United States that, ostensibly, were passed to control who can enter and under what conditions.

    But that is just too much triggering language when a Republican attempts to enforce such laws. It is only permitted for Democrats to do so.

    The entire Democrat slate of candidates is suffering from a malignant, metastasizing, mass of rank stupidity.

  8. So, how do these flagrant Commies get elected to office in the first place…

    Here’s how:

    Anyone who applies for a federal government job has to undergo an extensive
    FBI background investigation… Unless you are elected or appointed by an elected
    It is a back door to get in our open government and has always been a
    way for infiltration and subversion.

    The government relies on the voters and the Commicrat Media to vet them.
    Barrack Insane Obutthole was never vetted by the Media because they are the
    propaganda arm of the Commicrat Party. It’s how he got elected even though he
    started his political career out of the home of known terrorist and self described
    Communist revolutionary, Bill Ayers.

    It is also how John Brennan got to serve as Obama’s CIA Director even though
    he voted for the Communist Party presidential candidate Gus Hall during the
    height of the Cold War. Brennan told an audience that he voted for the
    Communist Party presidential candidate because he was unhappy “with the
    system” and saw the “need for change.” He didn’t say one word about he
    was just young and stupid.

    If they do take a polygraph, it is administered by a millennial Deep State SJW type
    like Peter Strzoke or Lisa Page who might ask them if they ever owned a pet… “You have?
    Great, you pass.” Now they can claim that they passed a polygraph test.

    This is also how Huma Abedin, who has direct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and
    Sisterhood through her parents, also worked as Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff and
    got her security clearance.

    It is also how people like Bernie Sanders, Joaquin Castro, Ocasio-Cortez, Kamala Harris,
    Cory Booker, Keith Ellison and the rest of the Commicrats get in office and get to sit on
    any one of the many intelligence committees…

  9. These people are the true fascists. If you publicly support conservative ideas, even hating Trump, they will dox you. They will try to destroy you and everyone you care about.

  10. Idiot republicans are talking legislation involving red flag laws. Look at how jokeen castro is using First Amendment freedoms of people and trying to incite violence against them. Trump and the republicans have railed against FISA court abuse with the russian collusion. Hey morons, want to tell us how red flag laws won’t be abused and used to silence your political opponents? You trust any court with people’s freedom when you just have told us all how the FISA court was abused. One I am totally disgusted in is Dan Crenshaw. As a veteran, he should know better. Trump signs any laws infringing on our God-Given Rights, he is toast.

  11. The Communists greatest achievement following the Cold War was convincing
    people that Communism no longer exists in America. After all, we won the Cold War right?…

    We need to bring back the HUAC (House Un-American Committee) which was created
    in 1938 to investigate alleged disloyalty and subversive activities on the part of
    government bureaucrats, and those organizations suspected of having Communist ties.

    The State Department is still full of Communists and so is every other government agency.

    Joseph McCarthy was right. His claims were substantiated in 1996 by the
    National Security Agency’s (NSA) “Venona project,” which intercepted
    messages passed between Soviet intelligence agents in the United States
    and intelligence agents in Moscow. (See Human Events, March 22, 1996, page 5.)

  12. I guess the left never heard the message “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Can you imagine the nashing of teeth that would occur if we followed that prescription and did unto them as they did unto use. Every dentist in the land would be fully booked for the next two years

  13. We need to be calling the white house & our reps about the 2A today!!! I tried all day yesterday & the voice mail lboxes were full. I heard this morning that others were doing the same thing yesterday & today.

  14. The current mayor of San Antonio is closely associated with the Castro twins & refuses to comment on this. This is going to bite him in the backside whether he says anything or not! Couldn’t happen to a more deserving despicable jerk!!!

  15. Hubby reminded me this morning of this. The nazis would post names of the Jews businesses so that they could be harassed. The left does the same all while calling Trump a nazi.

    Why is castro in our government? Same with the four horse women. They have no desire to uphold our constitution.

  16. Of course, today Trump will tweet something and the usual clown car full of Democrat voting “conservative” columnists will claim *he’s* the problem because presidential or something.

    Goldberg will gas bag on about civility, French will declare Trump’s supporters are awful, Kristol will claim some Dem candidate’s tweets are a better example, and on and on they will go, pretending they are championing *real* conservatism as they cheer on our would be overlords.

    On the other hand, I’m glad to be reconciled with several folks on the right who really deserved a time-out for dumping Cruz for Trump in the early part of 2016. I can overlook that moment of weakness, because it worked out better than anyone (including Trump) could have known.

    I still avoid certain sites. Hotair is a pit of capitulation. The Treehouse folks went anti-semite, so they are a permanent avoid. Drudge is useless and pointless. Breitbart is clickbait-driven, so interesting articles are hard to find. And on it goes.

  17. Update on how this is affecting Bill Miller’s BBQ, which also serves breakfast. A lady just called the radio to tell of the long line at the drive through window of the location she patronized. Choke on that, Joaquin!

  18. According to someone on twitter last night he said he dug into the Trump donors from San Antonio and found that Castro only named and shamed Trump’s white donors. Apparently there are several Trump max donors that are hispanic that Castro never named.

  19. The more these skin-color-obsessed clowns squeal about racism, the more insane they become. It is possible to convince yourself you are right, even if you initially knew you were just doing it to get attention.

    And getting attention on the left means squealing the loudest, foulest, most outrageous accusations you can invent. It’s truly a mental illness.

  20. From Joaquin Castro’s tweets…

    Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump — the owner of ⁦Bill Miller BarBQ⁩, owner of the ⁦Historic Pearl, realtor Phyllis Browning, etc⁩.
    Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’

    FYI, the Historic Pearl isn’t just a single business. It is a complex that includes countless businesses, restaurants, apartments, brewery, and more.


  21. Even if it was public info the fact is this smooth commie mofo put it
    out there with ill intent. Now because of this, these folks on the list
    are now targets for the lazy left wack jobs that never knew it was there
    in the first place. Castro increased the danger factor by 100%.

  22. There was someone here earlier that has since been removed. I had wanted to reply to her question of where Congress was in calling to have Joaquin censored. I would still like my reply to be posted for those of you that may not know about Mitch or Rand.

    They’re on summer break. Mitch McConnell is home, recuperating from a fall and broken shoulder. Protesters have been outside his home calling for violence and extreme bodily harm (stabbing). Rand Paul is recovering from surgery having part of a lung removed as a direct result of the attack and assault by his neighbor in 2017.

  23. This is what happens when millions of law abiding Americans who work and pay taxes ignore what is going on in our Country and many help vote communist into office. Perhaps it’s the word “work” that has caused this tyranny , we work to pay these scum bags to go after company’s and citizens , support and fund illegals, fund murdering innocent babies in the womb and them wonder what has happened in our Country.

    I’m proud to be a hard working American , now retired, but I have had blinders on until 2008 when our Country after losing 3,000 on 911 elect a stinking lying treasonous communist into office as President. I voted for Sarah Palin and held my nose and voted for Mitt Romney.

  24. The Communists greatest achievement following the Cold War was convincing people that Communism no longer exists in America. After all, we won the Cold War right?…

    This is all cultural Marxism in your face seeking to divide our nation via identity politics.

    This is being done on purpose. It’s why all of the Commicrat college campuses now have huge centers for “diversity”. “Diversity” and “tolerance” are dog whistles for cultural Marxism. Commicrats don’t want diversity of thought and they aren’t tolerant of white Conservatives or Trump supporters. It’s the Commie way or the highway.

    They will use any demographic to divide Americans… Race, religion, gender, gender “identity”, social status, income, sexual orientation, etc…

    Whatever it takes…

    Communist Goals to Destroy America (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963

    Goal 15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
    Done… Democrat Party

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. Done.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks. Done.

    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against the Constitution and the rule of law. Done.

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions. Done.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. Done.
    They run Hollywood.

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, and healthy.” (Trans culture) Done.

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.” Done.

    29.Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis. Done.

    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.” In process. Almost there.

    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Done.

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized government control over any part of the culture–education, healthcare, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc. Done..

    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use united force to solve economic, political or social problems. (Antifa, Black Lives matter, Occupy Wall Street…) Done.

  25. I guess we should assume that all of Tlaib and Omar’s donors are anti-semites and release their names as well.

  26. I find this guy even more repulsive than Fidel Castro; no wonder he worked under that other demagogue, Barack Obama who put us on a swift plane to ruination.

  27. Bill Millers is a bbq chain in san antonio. Pretty big there, but not like a national chain. Part of me wants to go there when i drive up to san antonio this weekend and another part doesnt want to expose my family to protests and possible violence against us for supporting them.

  28. Right after Sandy Hook my local newspaper published the names and addresses of all the registered gun owners in the county, it was up on their website and they eventually deleted that post, though I don’t remember if it made it to the print edition of that paper. So, what happened? Two of the people whose names were published had their homes broken into, nothing was taken and the feeling was that whoever broke into those homes were looking for their guns.

    What Castro did is dangerous but this is their new game plan, about two years back, Donny Deutsch was on MSNBC and said on air that the tactic of going after Trump should stop and the new tactic should be to go after his voters and now you’re seeing it with what Castro has done and Joe Scarborough said the other day as well. This is the far left in a nutshell and my parents experienced the same thing in the socialist/communist country they escaped in the 1960’s and that is scare tactics and if you didn’t join the “party” you disappeared at night and were either killed or sent to camps. This is what the left wants and its not a good thing…last night “peaceful protesters” protested in front of Mitch McConnell’s house and some yelled to “stab the mother f-er in the heart.” Yet, did any one of them protest in front of Warren’s home who the Dayton shooter was so fond of?

  29. These morons think their constant Trump bashing is somehow going to get them elected to the White House. That’s where you have to give a bit of credit to Warren and Sanders, at least they stick more with how they’re going to give all of us “free stuff”.

  30. This is why I never wanted the war many of you called for. We will lose. The left controls the narrative

  31. Anyone else notice that Twitter is propping up leftist voices. How in the heck does this nobody get 42k likes??? That’s about as much as Trump gets from his 50 million followers!!! The numbers just don’t add up.

  32. The first doxxed donor who suffers negative repercussions as a result of Castro’s actions should sue his butt.

  33. Really seems like the libs, dems, and NT’ers have gone over the edge and are executing a blitzkrieg type of attack this week in their effort to get Trump. They have succeeded somewhat in stoking fear of rednecks fighting in WalMart and motorcycles backfiring in Times Square.

    Trump will survive and the “resistance” will move on to another fabricated outrage by Monday.

  34. The Democrat Party has become a terrorist organization full of domestic enemies hell bent on destroying the Constitution, our Christian values, our economy, and our children’s future. Anyone voting Democrat is either evil or stupid or both.

  35. When I donated to a presidential campaign I was so proud to see name on the list of supporters.
    Why should Trump donors be ashamed or fearful?

  36. I will never believe anyone with the name hitler, Castro, or Mussolini. The name explains ir all.

  37. Karma is a bitch, he will get his, no doubt.. someone will spill the beans on this libtard.

  38. Taliban talib needs to shut her smelly mouth. How about we all see her donor list with their names, addresses and places of employment. Bet we see a bunch of terrorists who are on a no fly list.

  39. Castro is inciting violence against citizens. He is trying to use their right to their political opinion against them. This is a sitting member of Congress committing domestic terrorism. The governor, the FBI and justice department should be all over this. Castro needs to have charges brought against him for trying to silence people by threat of leftist mob violence against them and their livelihood. Castro needs to have what he is trying to incite done to him.

  40. Just divide America already. There’s a huge rift in this country and everyone’s fed up with each other. We had an idea that no other country would defeat us but we’d tear ourselves apart from the inside. It’s just about complete. How about it’s done peacefully before a war breaks out? Just carve out areas, let folks migrate out and call it a day already. Otherwise it’s only going to get worse with the ugliness that abounds.

  41. Battle lines have been drawn. Their crazies are already firing the first shots. El Paso, Dayton, Steve Scalice, etc. Arm up and watch your six.

  42. How does a communist with the last name Castro win an election in America? Also, is Tlaib intentionally referring to Joaquin as ‘Chairman Castro’ to troll the right?

  43. Joaquin is not only a member from La Raza but also from the anti-U.S.-Squad. His twin brother Julian isn’t any better. These brothers have a dark agenda and must be removed from any kind of office or position of power in the government. America wake up! Which part of the name Castro didn’t we understand?

  44. Democrats doxxing GOP donors & calling for gun confiscation within the same breath.

    These psychos are dangerous

  45. What is the purpose of identifying donors in this context if not to stir up trouble? Pelosi should censure both of them at the very least.

  46. Just when you thought that Democrats couldn’t get any lower, they break out the jack hammers to keep digging.
    Good – let the rubble bury them.
    This is not winning votes for them — that’s for damn sure.

  47. I can’t wait to hear all about this in the morning on my favorite San Antonio Conservative talk radio show!! 5-11 Central time ktsa.com It’s going to be GOOD!

  48. Shocker!

    I didn’t vote for Trump, but he certainly has my vote this time.

    These monsters are evil and horrific!

  49. We all know Talib is a terrorist sympathizer. What Castro did is like shooting a layup in her world.
