Here Are 10 Despicable Ways Far-Left Extremists Have Doxxed Conservatives By Jeff Charles for Red State
Far-left progressives love doxxing.
No, seriously, that’s not a joke. These far-left activists, many of whom disguise themselves as journalists, enjoy putting their political opponents in potential danger for the crime of espousing political opinions that are not approved by the Church of Marxism.
This is why none of us should be at all surprised that high-profile leftists are calling for the creation of a list of Trump supporters so that they can expose them to harassment, cancelation, and possibly worse. It is for this reason that a cadre Biden supporters created the “Trump Accountability Project,’
What we are seeing here is the latest in a long line of doxxing behavior designed to frighten conservatives into silence. In light of today’s events, it makes sense to take a look at some of the more egregious examples of progressives embracing this abhorrent political practice. So put on your seatbelts, turn on some Pink Floyd, and let’s take a trip down memory lane.
For starters, we have Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX), the twin brother of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro. Last year, he posted a list of President Trump’s donors who lived in his congressional district. His actions were met with a cacophony of praise from his comrades on the left, who absolutely loved the fact that he was exposing his own constituents for their political beliefs.
Castro’s actions resulted in the vicious harassment of those named on the list. Justin Herricks, who owned a company called Precision Pipe Rentals was one of the lawmaker’s victims. He told The Hill that he and his business were targeted and subject to verbal harassment. The left-wing rocket scientists in Castro’s district made phone calls to Herrick’s business, calling him a “racist piece of sh*t” who supports a “white supremacist.”
What a lovely bunch of people.
Next, we have the case of Shawn Brooks, the person who first posted an altered video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) which made her appear as if she were in a drunken state, slurring her words. The Daily Beast, a rabidly left-wing news site, published a hit piece on Brooks, exposing his private information in an effort to smear him and subject him to harassment.
The author, Kevin Poulson, tore into Brooks for sharing the video. He characterized him as “a 24-year-old day laborer currently on probation after pleading guilty to domestic battery” and “an avowed conservative and a proud member of Trump’s razor-thin African-American support base.” I suppose the fact that Brooks is black didn’t help matters much, did it?
So much for being woke.
Of course, we would be remiss to forget the doxxing of a group of nuns who sat behind President Trump at one of his rallies, wouldn’t we? When the president held an October rally in Ohio, three nuns wearing MAGA masks while holding rosaries were visible on camera sitting behind the president, praying as they watched the event.
My colleague, Nick Arama, noted that the left was incensed by the display. “They immediately started attacking the nuns for being there. Some even suggested they weren’t really nuns. Others suggested that it was somehow illegal for them to be there and that the tax exemption of their order or the Catholic Church should be pulled,” he wrote.
But they didn’t stop there. Peter Vroom, a former Republican congressional staff and a virulent Never Trumper stated that he found the nuns “bizarre and disgusting.” He posted a tweet showing a picture of the nuns and telling his audience the order they served and the city in which they served. While he did not publish their names, he definitely gave enough information to anyone who might want to find them for sordid purposes.
But it’s not like these people respect the religious anyway, right?
Next, we have the case of Kate Cronin-Furman, an assistant professor of human rights at University College London. Last year, she wrote a piece for the New York Times in which she called for the doxxing and humiliation of federal employees. She even went so far as to create a list of people serving with the U.S. Border Patrol so that progressives could find ways to punish them.
