The dirty little secret about Democrats—which is beginning to be less of a secret—is that they don’t just hate President Trump, they also hate Trump supporters and conservatives.
Hillary Clinton let the cat out of the bag in 2016 when she referred to Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables” and said they were “irredeemable.”
An editorial written by Matt Ford at “The New Republic” targeted “Trump and His Delplorables.” In the article, Ford takes a shot at Trump supporters for embracing this president.
Ford wrote, “Hillary Clinton had a point. In September 2016, the Democratic presidential candidate criticized some of her rival’s supporters for backing him. ‘You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?’ she said at a fundraiser in New York. ‘The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic—you name it. And unfortunately, there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.’’’
Ford Continued: “Two years into Trump’s presidency, deplorable seems almost kind. It’s clear by now that racism is an animating force of Trump’s presidency, yet many of Trump’s supporters and most of the Republican Party still back him after every bigoted slight and discriminatory policy he makes. They may not be willing to admit that they agree outright with everything he says or does, but their continued political support makes the distinction meaningless. Even those Republicans who do voice objections to Trump tend to treat each outburst as a discrete incident, thereby denying the obvious, deeper problem. At this stage, to not object to the president outright is to be complicit in his racist presidency.”
Of course, anyone who supports Trump is racist. Conservatives have heard this line again and again. The Left needs to get some new material.
That article is proof that the Left really doesn’t like you if you are Trump supporters. They have a deep disdain for you and your values and are willing to target you publicly if it requires them to do so.
That includes posting information publicly about those who donate to the Trump campaign—which is exactly what Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro did the other day.
Joaquin Castro Tweets Information Targeting Trump Donors
Since the weekend mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, many on the Left have taken to various platforms to accuse the president—and anyone who supports him—of being responsible for the rhetoric that led to the racially-motivated mass shooting in El Paso.
It has gotten so bad that a sitting congressman tweeted a political hit list of Trump donors in Texas.
Representative Castro is also the chairman of his brother Julian Castro’s floundering campaign.
Castro tweeted the names of Trump donors in the city of San Antonio with the words, “sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump. Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’”
That kind of hit list is ripe for disturbed left-wing nuts to exploit and harass those donors.
It is true that the information is public, however, no one should be naïve enough to believe that Castro was doing a public service.
He specifically tweeted certain names to do harm to them because they support President Trump. He knows damn well that most people aren’t going to search for those names on a federal election database, so he went ahead and did it for them.
Castro is proving that he and many on the Left hold all Trump supporters in contempt and they use Trump as a cudgel to wield against his supporters.
That is their true motivation.
