Congressman Joaquin Castro had enough. So, he did a tweet telling folks – just in case you didn’t know, here are folks MAXXED OUT IN THEIR DONATIONS TO DOLT45.
Like, maybe, you ought to have this list, next time you decide to go out and purchase something.
The tweets that started it:
Well, wouldn’t you know…..the MAGAites went a little crazy.
HOW DARE the Congressman ‘reveal’ what is already sitting there, in a public database for anyone to see.
They try to muddy up the waters, and say that Castro is ‘ doxxing’ people.
Complete and utter bullshyt.
This is in a public database for everyone to know. Most people don’t bother to look in the database. He did. He put it out there – who donated the MAXIMUM AMOUNT TO DOLT45.
Folks are done. There is no middle of the road. There can’t be. You stand with Dolt45, you stand for all that he does. That’s it. Not that there were any excuses before, but, folks are pretty much done with Dolt45 Supporters. I’ve said from the beginning, that they mean us harm….Black folks were pretty clear with that…we knew what that hate-filled rhetoric that he’s been peddling in would get us….folks finally coming around to where we have been since 2015.
Remember, right wingers are all about ‘freedom of speech’. Can’t have anything limiting their ‘ freedom of speech’. Everything is ‘speech’. They needed Citizens United, because money donations were SPEECH and how dare you try and limit it.
Here’s the thing. Just like when they say that they want FREEDOM OF SPEECH.
Folks have to point out, you don’t want Freedom of Speech.
You have Freedom of Speech. You can say what you want.
What you want is FREEDOM FROM CONSEQUENCES of said speech.
You want to party like it’s 1939.
That’s what the whining is about what Congressman Castro did.
They wanted to have their hate on – donating to Dolt45.
And, get paid too, by those that Dolt45 hates.
It’s that simple. It’s not like the old days, where, in the Jim Crow South, they could proudly display their participation in the White Citizens Council, and we weren’t able to do anything, because in many towns, they literally controlled ALL the stores for people to shop.
Nope. This is 2019. And, if I see a list of those donating to the man fostering the hate that brought the slaughter of people that look like me….
The least I can do is NOT patronize you anymore.
El Paso is 82% Hispanic.
And, you don’t think there should be repercussions for you donating to a man who peddles in White Supremacy and White Nationalism?
Well, isn’t that peak caucasity.
Nothing but TRUTH:
Wakandan War Dog (@Kennymack1971) Tweeted:
RWers who have had no issue throwing up problematic Democratic donors (because you know…this information is public) in the faces of Democratic political figures are now up in arms about MAGA donors names being published.
The hypocrisy man….
Some thoughts on it:
They’re used to the left cowering in the corner. Based on what I’ve been seeing I think this weekend’s carnage was the last straw for a lot of people, and they have collectively snapped. I think it is finally take no prisoners time (thank God).

Trump donors have blood on their hands. No wonder they’re so touchy that their publicly disclosed donations are now being scrutinized. I could give less than a damn about their feelings. #ElPasoShooting #WhiteSupremacistTerrorism https://twitter.com/skepticalbrotha/status/1159062949975252992?s=17
Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) Tweeted:
All these white reporters and white folks big mad that Joaquin Castro shared what is public information.
Marginalized folks lives are in danger due to Trump & GOP policies, so if you’re supporting white supremacist agenda then you better be loud & proud.
Screw your feelings. https://twitter.com/NerdyWonka/status/1159111933812977664?s=17
Matt Ortega (@MattOrtega) Tweeted:
All the fainting couches over Joaquin Castro tweeting public information is just reporters attempting to meet their “pox on both their houses” quota for the week after several days of “President inspires mass shooter” coverage. You know, for “balance.”
Nkemjika’s Child (@SpectNScript) Tweeted:
I mean, if you’re going to donate to the Bloated Tangerine, you should be prepared to stand publicly by that decision. No one is attacking you for being a “conservative”. You’re being exposed for supporting an unabashed racist. https://twitter.com/SpectNScript/status/1158941654591692800?s=17
YEP…WHAT LIE TOLD?
David Nir (@DavidNir) Tweeted:
I think part of this feigned hysteria on the right about Castro’s (totally legitimate) use of public donor info is also part of a ploy to attack campaign finance disclosure laws. They’d like nothing more than for all money to be dark money https://twitter.com/DavidNir/status/1158919590132375552?s=17
And the Trump Stenographer, Maggie Haberman, tried to come for Joy Reid:

Maggie Haberman…should have just sat and ate her food, instead of trying to play Miss Ann to Joy Reid. All these other GOPers and journos crying outrage, have just amplified the list for even more people to see…what are ya’ll scared of exactly? Maybe seeing your name? https://t.co/sh3mvrLQl7 https://twitter.com/psddluva4evah/status/1158940704867004420?s=17
I found this thread on Twitter. It will enrage and break your heart. When folks try to separate what Dolt45 has been doing from the uptick in hate crimes…uh uh..they are joined at the hip. And, what I’m about to post isn’t hate crimes..just the spread of hate and harassment. It’s all related. All in the same cesspool of hatred and White Supremacy that wound up in El Paso and Dayton this past weekend.
