CFTR Denounces AOC’s Proposed Un-American “Enemies List” of Trump Supporters, Threatens Litigation
Democrats Open Themselves to Lawsuits if Innocent Americans Lose Jobs for Exercising their First Amendment Rights
 
Washington, D.C. – Citizens for the Republic, the political action committee founded by President Ronald Reagan, harshly denounced Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for recently proposing the creation of a list of “Trump sycophants” to show their “complicity” with Trump should he leave office. Ocasio-Cortez’s alarming proposal comes at the same time that a group of Democratic staffers launched a website called the “Trump Accountability Project,” to blacklist former Trump staffers looking to find jobs next year.
 
“What Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and the operatives behind the Trump Accountability Project are proposing is, at its core, antithetical to every value enshrined in our First Amendment. This is America, and in America we do not penalize citizens for how they choose to vote or who they choose to work for in government. We do not take revenge on political adversaries and we certainly do not ‘make lists.’ Such behavior is no better than the targeted political violence carried out by common despots in places like Cuba and Venezuela,” CFTR said in a statement today.
 
If any Americans who make it onto this list are refused a job opportunity or lose their current jobs as a result, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and her vengeful cohorts may face legal action from those same Americans. Their blind quest for retribution resulting in the loss of business or other similar opportunities may constitute legally as tortious interference with business opportunities and expectations, depending on the facts.
 
“If the Congresswoman and those with her attitude insist on continuing this dangerous course, they should remember that innocent people will be hurt emotionally and financially. They should know their actions have consequences. If they want to play with fire, they can expect to be called to account in court by those of us who still believe in freedom of choice.”

Dems' 'accountability project' aimed at 'canceling' Trump loyalists shuts down
- The Washington Times - Thursday, November 12, 2020

The Trump Accountability Project (TAP) was short-lived in its plan to blacklist Trump loyalists.

It announced Thursday on its sparse website that “the project will no longer be active.”

Conservatives ridiculed backers of presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden’s for launching a campaign to cancel people who worked for President Trump by denying them post-government employment. On social media, Trump supporters invoked the names of Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot, men who brutally suppressed opponents.

Neither the website nor its Twitter page disclosed its organizers. But former Obama and Clinton officials urged liberals to join.

Hari Sevugan, former spokesman for the Barack Obama campaign, was one of those.
