A Democratic congressman\u0026#039;s tweeting of public information has conservatives apoplectically shrieking about \u0022doxxing\u0022—a claim that progressives are skewering.\u0026nbsp;Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) on Tuesday listed donors in the city of San Antonio, Texas to President Donald Trump who have \u0022maxed out\u0022 their contributions for 2019, calling them out for supporting the president\u0026#039;s racist and hateful rhetoric.A screed allegedly written by a shooter in El Paso over the weekend who killed 22 people in an attack targeting Hispanics was similar in tone to Trump\u0026#039;s anti-immigrant speeches.\u0022Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as \u0026#039;invaders,\u0026#039;\u0022 said Castro.\u0026nbsp;Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump — the owner of ⁦@BillMillerBarBQ⁩, owner of the ⁦@HistoricPearl, realtor Phyllis Browning, etc⁩. Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’ pic.twitter.com/YT85IBF19u— Joaquin Castro (@Castro4Congress) August 6, 2019The names and donations shared by Castro, the chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, are public information and easily searchable on the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) website.\u0026nbsp;\u0022Chairman Castro, they don\u0026#039;t like it when you name their donors,\u0022 Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) said in a tweet. \u0022The public needs to know who funds racism.\u0022But that didn\u0026#039;t stop the president\u0026#039;s allies from having a full blown meltdown over the exposure, claiming that publishing the names amounted to \u0022doxxing,\u0022 or publishing the full private information of the donors. Castro only released the names of the donors.\u0022It\u0026#039;s not as though Castro published anyone\u0026#039;s phone number, e-mail address, or home address,\u0022 said Media Matters for America\u0026nbsp;editor Parker Molloy. \u0022Had he done that, that would be unethical, absolutely.\u0022If someone wants to say which candidates I\u0026#039;ve financially supported, they\u0026#039;re welcome to do that.

Had he done that, that would be unethical, absolutely.— Parker Molloy (@ParkerMolloy) August 7, 2019FEC information is not private, as Axios explained Tuesday evening.\u0022Anyone who donates over $200 to campaigns must report to the Federal Election Commission,\u0022 said Axios.The right-wing reaction to Castro\u0026#039;s tweet nevertheless ran the gamut from general disappointed scolding to analogizing posting the names with gun violence.Publishing publicly available information was \u0022a terrible and dangerous precedent to set,\u0022 said HuffPost contributor Yashar Ali.Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who once referred to himself as \u0022David Duke without the baggage,\u0022 attempted to tie Castro\u0026#039;s dissemination of the, again, publicly available names of the president\u0026#039;s donors to a 2017 shooting that put Scalise in the hospital.\u0022It\u0026#039;s dangerous, and lives are at stake,\u0022 said Scalise. \u0022I know this firsthand.\u0022Progressives found the outrage over Castro\u0026#039;s sharing of the public information to be at best suspect.\u0022Apparently\u0026nbsp;the right wing is flipping out because Castro tweeted public information,\u0022\u0026nbsp;tweeted\u0026nbsp;privacy activist Kade Crockford. \u0022I thought y\u0026#039;all loved free speech???\u0022The outrage was hypocritical,\u0026nbsp;said\u0026nbsp;journalist Benjamin Dixon.\u0022Conservatives are literally more offended by Castro \u0026#039;targeting\u0026#039; voters than gunmen targeting children,\u0022 Dixon said.The right-wing attack on Castro was not in keeping with the \u0022wait and see\u0022 approach to the president\u0026#039;s racist attacks on four congresswomen of color in July, said activist Bree Newsome.\u0022Notice how quickly folks jumped on Joaquin Castro\u0026#039;s tweet to feign concern about violence when two weeks ago they weren\u0026#039;t even sure if chanting for Omar, Presley, AOC and Tlaib to \u0026#039;go back\u0026#039; was racist,\u0022 tweeted Newsome.LOL Notice how quickly folks jumped on Joaquin Castro\u0026#039;s tweet to feign concern about violence when two weeks ago they weren\u0026#039;t even sure if chanting for Omar, Presley, AOC \u0026amp; Tlaib to \u0022go back\u0022 was racist.— Bree Newsome Bass (@BreeNewsome) August 7, 2019Splinter\u0026#039;s Naomi LaChance was\u0026nbsp;confused as to why sharing the information was generating such a reaction.\u0022It\u0026#039;s totally bizarre,\u0022 wrote\u0026nbsp;LaChance. \u0022It\u0026#039;s certainly in the public interest to know who is willingly sending Trump money.\u0022\u0022I don\u0026#039;t have any sympathy for someone who chooses to part with their money in such a freakish manner,\u0022 added LaChance.
