Donald Trump Jr., citing Joaquin Castro’s recent effort to doxx Trump supporters in San Antonio, compared the Democrat’s list to the Dayton shooter’s hit list.
Castro published a list of 44 individuals and businesses in San Antonio who donated to President Donald Trump in 2019, linked some of them to his tweet to bring them more notoriety, then accused them of “fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.'”
In other words, he was putting a target on their back by pointing out their existence and political leanings to his liberal followers and accusing them of being racists.
If we use the left’s own insistence that words incite violence, then this is far and above anything Trump has done by calling out specific individuals.
Trump Jr. Isn’t Letting It Slide
Trump Jr. called Castro out for doxxing Trump donors – big time!
Holy shit. On Fox & Friends, Donald Trump Jr compares the list Joaquin Castro released of public info about who has donated to Trump with a mass shooter’s kill list.

“I’ve seen what’s going on with the Joaquin Castro craziness, putting out a list,” Trump Jr. explained. “That list screams like the Dayton, Ohio shooter’s list, right? When a radical left-wing politician who’s polling at zero percent does this for either attention or a call to action, it’s pretty scary.”
The Texas lawmaker serves as campaign chairman for his brother, 2020 presidential hopeful Julian Castro.
The Dayton shooter was accused by former high school classmates of having a list.
“There was a kill list and a rape list, and my name was on the rape list,” a female classmate said.
Joaquin Castro is shamelessly defending the “target list” of @realDonaldTrump’s supporters that he tweeted.
Not only is Castro a sitting Dem Congressman, he’s the chair of Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

Are They Comparable?
Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt pointed out that Castro wasn’t saying “go and do something dangerous to these people – it’s completely different from that.”
Perhaps a little. But all Castro needs is one lunatic – and the left has many – with an anger management issue who genuinely believes these people are racists to snap and use that as a guide to inflict their own perceived justice.
This is, after all, the same party that told us for weeks that any mention of minority women in Congress and their anti-American sentiments was a call to violence. What would their reaction be if Trump Jr. or the President posted a list of AOC donors and accused them of “fueling a campaign of hate and anti-Americanism?”
We’re guessing a new round of impeachment threats would crop up pretty swiftly.
“If someone on our campaign did that, it would be rough,” he correctly surmised.
