Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) sounded the alarm for help to compile a list of President Trump’s supporters calling them “Trump sycophants.”
Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future? I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future

Ocasio-Cortez was not the only one calling for the creation of an enemy’s list.
The Trump Accountability Project has a goal to collect names of individuals that worked for or donated to President Trump to hold them accountable.
The New York Post reports:
The site says it aims to embarrass and hold accountable people complicit in the worst behaviors of Trump’s presidency, including his campaign staff, White House staff, donors and even lawyers.
Others also support the initiative.
You better believe it. We just launched the Trump Accountability Project to make sure anyone who took a paycheck to help Trump undermine America is held responsible for what they did. https://t.co/clRu6WSfvL https://t.co/J78dgyHJpG

Any R now promoting rejection of an election or calling to not to follow the will of voters or making baseless allegations of fraud should never serve in office, join a corporate board, find a faculty position or be accepted into "polite" society. We have a list.

You are an elected representative in a democratic republic and you are setting the stage for retribution against fellow citizens for the crime of holding a different opinion. It's un-American, you should stop it and council others to do the same. https://t.co/UN1tceoHVA

It’s outrageous for Ocasio-Cortez and The Trump Accountability Project to create an enemies list to punish supporters of President Trump.
In the end, these calls are fundamentally unAmerican and its intent is to silence opposing political views through intimidation.
Gathering the names of political opponents for future use is a communist tactic and must be rejected by people of all political parties.
