Being a Trump supporter is no longer allowed, it seems

Tommy Lee is the new voice of the American Left. The drummer for Mötley Crüe and convicted wife-beater laid out in florid terms his plans for what the Left will do in a few years to the 47% of America that voted for President Trump.
Lee’s essay, posted on Twitter Friday morning, began “You Trumpsters better pray that liberals never gain control of the WH again because we are going to pay you back so f---ing hard for all of this shit." Lee’s proposals, including taxing churches out of business and throwing condoms out of planes at noncoastal Americans, were creative, and his language was colorful. But the basic notion — that Trump supporters deserve to suffer — is mainstream these days.
Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro, the brother of presidential candidate Julián Castro, didn’t go to Tommy Lee’s lengths, but he had the same message: It’s not okay to be a Trump supporter, and you ought to be publicly shamed for the crime.
Joaquin posted on Twitter the names and occupations of his constituents in San Antonio who had given the maximum contribution to Trump.
He, his brother, and some liberal commentators have fiercely defended the action. Castro invoked the Washington Examiner to point out that donor lists are public and that news outlets like ours regularly report who is donating to whom. This is just democracy, we’re told; it’s about holding Trump supporters “accountable,” a liberal writer at Esquire explained.
