This 100% unironic tweet is possibly the "best" one I've seen yet.

After today there is no longer any room for nuance. The President is a white nationalist terror leader. His supporters - ALL OF THEM - are by definition white nationalist terror supporters. The MAGA hat is a KKK hood. And this evil, racist scourge must be eradicated from society.


Lol. Riiiiight. If this were true, with their numbers and the amount of guns in the USA, which are more concentrated on the Republican side, the United States would be a white ethnostate right now.

Well at least he came right out and said flat out what so many seem to be thinking, but pussyfoot around in how they express it.

For a long time I have been thinking, stop menacing words and just come right out and say what you really think.

What will the left do when trump is finished after 8 years mean they so obsessed with him he’s basically their whole life, then he’ll be gone and along with it s big part of their life. Who will they blame all their issues on, who will they rant about.

Like in that movie where th good guy caught the bad guy and then his life felt empty. They’d always been fighting and now he had nothing.

News flash: you don't have a great country if you're caught up treating your political opponents like subhuman loonies.

It's a shitty attitude & there's no real excuse.

There's no guarantee that Trump is going to be elected to a second term.....

If he loses Hispanic votes in Florida, he just might lose Florida. He won it by the skin of his teeth in 2016.

Remember: The Electoral College just might bite Trump in the butt in 2020 the way it bit Hillary in the butt in 2016.

Look at our history? It’s super rare the current president doesn’t get re-elected. 8 years republicans 8 years democrat switching every 8 years. So look forward to trump for 8 years.

I'm sorry, which side did you say was the fascists?

(This is why the right to bear arms is so important — because the world is full of people like Reza Aslan.)

The unmitigated irony of this statement.

'This is a target list': Joaquin Castro facing backlash for tweeting the names of Texas Trump donors

Quote:
President Donald Trump's campaign and several top Republicans on Tuesday slammed Rep. Joaquin Castro, the twin brother and campaign chairman of 2020 presidential hopeful Julián Castro, after he posted a list of Texas Trump donors and their place of business.

Joaquin Castro on Monday evening criticized Trump donors from San Antonio, his hometown and the district he represents, who donated the maximum amount of $2,000 to Trump.

In his tweet, he included a screenshot of the names of 44 donors and their businesses. The list is public record and can be found online at the Federal Elections Commission website.

"Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders,'" he wrote in the tweet.


Six Trump donors Joaquin Castro tried to shame also gave to him and brother Julián
Quote:
Joaquin Castro may be creating political liabilities for himself by alienating his own constituents and donor base, all in an effort to brand those very same political givers as effectively racist for backing Trump in 2020.

A Washington Examiner review of Federal Elections Committee filings found three individuals on the list who gave $5,600 to Trump, the maximum available by law for the primary and general election, and Joaquin Castro, a congressman from San Antonio who also leads the presidential campaign of his brother, a former San Antonio mayor.

Another three individuals on the list told the Washington Examiner that they supported Julián Castro's mayoral campaigns. Julián Castro served as San Antonio mayor from 2009 to 2014, before being tapped as HUD secretary for the final two-and-a-half years of President Barack Obama's administration.

Edward Steves, owner of a manufacturing firm that he said is the oldest company in San Antonio, told the Washington Examiner that he once hosted a fundraiser at his house that raised over $300,000 for Julián Castro’s mayoral campaign.

But Joaquin's tweet and follow-up statements chastising local Trump donors may backfire for his own reelection races, Steves said.

“He's probably got 44 people that are going to contribute heavily to whoever might run against him in the primaries,” Steves said.

Donald Kuyrkendall, president of a San Antonio commercial real estate company, shared concern about his family's safety and wondered what the Castro brothers hoped to gain by the Twitter outing of Trump donors.

“Were his intentions to incite people to picket Bill Miller's barbecue or to come to Don Kuyrkendall’s house, you know, assault my wife, make nasty comments?” Kuyrkendall said.

Kuyrkendall said that in wake of the tweet, his lawyer reminded him that he once donated to Julián Castro's mayoral campaign.

“Life is short and this kind of silliness is not good for anybody, especially with the climate we have right now with two mass shootings in a weekend,” Kuyrkendall said.

“I'm just hopeful that none of this gets serious and that my grandchildren and children will be not intimidated by this stuff,” Kuyrkendall said.


In and of itself this not unusual. "Boycott Autism Speaks" publishes lists of donors to Autism Speaks. If the congressmen specified this was for boycott purposes ok, but he did not. The wording "this is a target list" leaves no doubt in my mind this is a no so veiled call for retaliatory attacks. Many of you might remember Sarah Palin posted a picture of a congresswoman with crosshairs on her and then Rep. Gabby Giffords subsequently got shot and has to live with lifetime disability. In this climate, I guess this was inevitable.
