Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas), the manager of the Democratic presidential campaign of twin brother Julián Castro, dismissed calls from the Trump campaign and other Republicans Tuesday to delete a tweet identifying some of President Trump's biggest Texas donors.

Joaquin Castro

President Trump is maliciously targeting and endangering the personal safety..."

Trump didn't even dox anyone. But, it's ok when Castro does it, because...reasons.

If a Trump supporter had done this, Pelosi, Schumer, and Biden would be crying on the news that Trump is endangering innocent people with violent rhetoric.

Oh wait, they already are.

These are public records. It is not doxing. If you feel is is, please post the legal definition of the law which prohibits this public information from public reporting. I will be happy to review the law and change my mind IF IT IS ILLEGAL.

If it is not illegal, according to the law, I'm sure you will change your mind and recant the accusation. Am I right?

Why wouldnt these political activists be proud to see their name associated with Trump? They wear MAGA hats to Walmart, right?

It will be good for business, right?

Be proud, Trumpers, and face your fellow Texans with a proud smile, a big Trump button, and your MAGA hat on.

Are they ashamed?

Why?

"Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) doubled down Wednesday on his decision to doxx 44 San Antonio area Trump donors on Twitter, saying it was simply a "lament" that will hopefully lead Trump supporters (and others around the country) to "think twice" about donating to the president's reelection campaign"

Think twice or what?

The campaign finance laws are written to prevent secrecy in large, political contributions.

Now the big donors know they will be putting their mouth where their money is. It will be great publicity, probably increase profits, cause you know, MAGAs love to spend their money at Conservative owned business establishments, right?

Whats yer beef?

You were all loudmouthed over George Soros, right?

Swell. Your malignant POTUS mentions immigrant "invasion" like 2,000 times in speeches, tweets, and FB ads; A murderous Trump-lover writes a manifesto quoting Trump demagoguery as his inspiration for his 22 murders, and countless wounded, and ROC and Nulli, et al insist there is no connection.

And now, Trump snowflakes want to 'warn" us how scary it is, that the nation has now heard who Trump's Mega MAGA money men are, and we are all supposed to roll over and quiver?

OK, sure, that makes sense. You go with that, ROC.

Still looking for that doxing law, Nulli? Get one of your Russian troll-interns on that, why doncha.

We will be watching for that...probably coming any time now...any minute...

Do you suppose the number of Millionaire donor classers who may be harassed is higher or lower than people harassed who might look like immigrants?

Do you think the level of harassment the millionaire political activists might be expected to suffer will be more harsh, or less harsh, than poor people who are bullied and bashed every day, because they look like immigrants?

Trump has made it safe for necks and Nazis to harass loads of American citizens who look like immigrants.

Where's the concern for the harassment Trump has normalized?

As had been mentioned on this thread, it all is a matter of public record so this has nothing to do with transparency. Doxxing them to make sure that they are harassed is another thing entirely.

There are laws that limit who can contribute and the amount that each donor can contribute. If the donors don't identify themselves, there is no way to determine if these laws have been broken.

I am referring to the kind of "harassment" Trump inspires that is reported on the back page.

Thread title is accurate and straightforward: "Feral Trumper Fractures 13 Year Old's Skull".

To all you tender loving righties who are so askeert that some MEGA MAGA donor might be 'harassed'. Are you guys just fine with a kid's fractured skull at the hands of a feral Trumper who felt Trump's rhetoric compelled him to attack the kid. Will you be as outraged by Trump's inspirational rhetoric as you are when publicly available campaign finance reports are reported upon?

That is a lie.
He specifically said that his motivation predated Trump, but the media would lie about it. Are you ignorant of that or are you just lying about it too?

My opinions on automation, immigration, and the rest predate Trump and his campaign for president. I putting this here because some people will blame the President or certain presidential candidates for the attack. This is not the case. I know that the media will probably call me a white supremacist anyway and blame Trump's rhetoric. The media is infamous for fake news. Their reaction to this attack will likely just confirm that.

I'm sure you're A-OK with this:

A New York man claims he was attacked by a group of teenagers in Manhattan this week for wearing one of President Trump's "Make America Great Again" hats.

Jahangir "John" Turan, the owner of an art gallery, told Fox 5 New York that the incident occurred Tuesday afternoon on Canal Street.

Earlier in the day, he said he visited Trump Tower and purchased one of the signature red hats featuring Trump's 2016 campaign slogan because "I think he's doing a great job."

Turan claims he was "jumped" by a group of about 15 young people who yelled obscenities like "f--- Trump" before allegedly assaulting him.

He accused one teenager of smashing his head into a scaffolding pole, resulting in severe bruises and a swollen eye.>
