Joaquin Castro, born September 16, 1974 (age 48), is the Democratic Party representative from Texas' 20th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. Joaquin is one of two of the communist Castro brothers (not Raul and Fidel), the twin brother of Julian Castro, former Obama Secretary of HUD and 2020 Presidential candidate. Joaquin won re-election unopposed in the 2018 Midterm Elections. He is a co-sponsor of the Green New Deal.[1]

Joaquin Castro has encouraged violence against political opponents.[2][3]

In the hearings with disgraced FBI director James Comey on March 20, 2017, Castro spent most of his time referring to the “dirty dossier” published by BuzzFeed, which has long been discredited, and bringing up the names of various Trump supporters, asking FBI Director Comey if they were targets of the investigation into Russian influence on the elections –knowing perfectly well that Comey would not and could not answer. The idea was simply to bring up the names in a forum in which they couldn't defend themselves: that's what the politics of innuendo is all about.[4]

A liberal hypocrite who has doxxed and incited violence against Trump supporters,[3] Castro has accused Donald Trump of inciting a mob.[5]
