Joaquin Castro’s Outing of Trump Donor’s … Backfires

Joaquin Castro’s Outing of Trump Donor’s … Backfires

Barley scratching 2% approval among likely Democratic voters Presidential “wanna-be” Rep. Julian Castro’s twin brother Joaquin decided to give his brother some much needed help by outing donors of the President within his own district of San Antonio, Texas.

Castro apparently hoping to get some positive traction for his brothers dismal polling numbers by actually outing his own constituents (although not supporters) publicly releasing the names of donors supporting the President.

The senseless, reckless and stupid attempt to harass, shame and perhaps drive Trump supporters underground, actually embolden the 12-donors to declare they would not be intimidated by a harebrained stunt from the 44-year old legislator, along with his “wanna-be” twin brother  Julian.

The move initially sparked outrage in the White House and among Republicans, especially after the duel massacres in Texas and Ohio, concerning the safety of private citizens being targeted by a sitting member of congress.

Within hours of Castro’s foolish tweet outing donors, it was evident by the backlash from both sides of the political aisle that he had overreached “big time.”

Even MSNBC host Willie Geist took Castro to task for his thoughtless and potentially dangerous move.

“Unless you support the white nationalism and the racism that Donald Trump is paying for and fueling, then I hope you, as a person of good conscience, will think twice about contributing to his campaign,” said Castro.

Geist then pressed the congressmen suggesting that by publicly outing private donors within this polarized environment that the likelihood that some of these individuals (some in their 70’s) would be harassed or worst.

Castro perhaps feeling the heat, even from MSNBC replied: “I don’t want anyone on the left or the right to be a target of any crazy person or any person that means them harm at all.”

This of course flies in the face of Castro’s refusal to take down the post arguing that the names of the donors are publicly available, however singling out donors by a congressman whose brother is running for President, and then warning publicly that those donor’s support white nationalism and racism, is inciting violence towards those donors.

However, if the Castro brothers thought that by outing Trump donors they would somehow mute their support of the President, they were dead-wrong.

In fact, Joaquin’s ill-conceived plan has actually backfired. Mark Hanrahan, one of President Trump’s donors appearing on “Fox & Friends” Thursday, said he was initially “sick to my stomach” after seeing what Rep. Joaquin Castro had done, in his sick attempt to shame Trump supporters.

The CEO of MidAmerican Aerospace said it was “galling” that Castro attempted to tie the President’s supporters to the actions of a mass shooter who killed 22 people at a Walmart in El Paso.

Hanrahan acknowledged he saw the MSNBC interview with host Willie Geist, and doesn’t buy Castro’s defense.

“He knows exactly what he’s doing,” said Hanrahan, adding that his father fought in World War II and he refuses to be “bullied with slurs of racism.”

Adding, “I and a lot of other people that support the President, we’re not gonna be called racist and the other slurs without fighting back,” said Hanrahan, explaining that supporting political candidates is a matter of free speech.

Hanrahan’s reason for supporting the President are based on immigration, trade and staying out of foreign wars, not because he supports hate or racism.

Adding, “I had kids in my neighborhood that went to Vietnam and I’m 1,000 percent against foreign wars. I want to bring all the kids back. No. 2, the trade deals decimated Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We used to have manufacturing all over town, it’s all gone.”

“I treasure the people from around the world. … I have nothing against immigration. I think the world of the people who come here. The Cubans built a wonderful city in Miami. But I just think you should come to America legally. Those three things that Trump stood for resonated throughout the Rust Belt, where I’m originally from.”

Castro’s outing of donors also had a chilling effect on a San Antonio man who was wrongly outed as a donor by the loony Democrat.

Harper Huddleston said on “Fox & Friends” that his name appeared on Castro’s hit-list instead of the name of his retired father, who contributed to the Trump campaign.

Huddleston acknowledged he’s also a Trump supporter; however, he ironically revealed that he also contributed to Castro’s brother, Julian in the past. One would imagine that will no longer happen in the future.

      Are you really this stupid? Look, my amateur radio licence is public knowledge, too, but I don’t want every jackass and his brother to know exactly how to find all the info attached to it, and neither would you.
