    #WalkAway Movement Gains Steam As Free-thinkers Reject The Left

    #WalkAway Movement Gains Steam As Free-thinkers Reject The Left

    “Once upon a time, I was a liberal. Well, to be honest, less than a year ago, I was still a liberal”

    We’ve been covering the effects of the 2016 election on the left, and we aren’t the only ones who’ve noticed just how depraved and debased Democrats and the left have become.

    The #WalkAway movement consists of free-thinking liberals who are horrified by what has become of their side, of the Democratic Party, and they are posting videos and social media shares on why they have chosen to #WalkAway.

    The Epoch Times reports:

    When actor James Woods tweeted out the hashtag “#WalkAway” in late June, even the alt-right missed the enormity of what lay beneath it. The Democratic Party had, in fact, struck an iceberg.

    Some 5 million people on Facebook and YouTube have seen the video by now. A very handsome gay man, who you just assume is about to scold you on progressive talking points, instead says this:

    “Once upon a time, I was a liberal. Well, to be honest, less than a year ago, I was still a liberal.

    . . . . Meet Brandon Straka, the unlikely liberator and new face of the “silent minority” of Americans who’ve been cast out by family and friends, fired from jobs, and forced into silent social ghettos for their failure to “get it” about how hateful and dangerous Donald Trump is, and why he and all his supporters should be subjected to an ever-expanding social and professional fatwah.

    Watch Straka’s video. Twice.

    Straka has set up Facebook pages for his #WalkAway movement and is encouraging others who are horrified by the new face of the left to post their own stories.

    The Epoch Times continues:

    They gather at his two Facebook groups, “The Unsilent Minority” and “WalkAway Campaign.” Those who have the courage post their own video testimonials about the moment when the abuse, rage, and ugliness of the Democrats caused them to finally leave the party and “walk away.”

    . . . .  Those who are walking away are not Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables,” but rather, in many cases, lifelong Democrats who simply could not take it any longer and have longed for this very moment, when somebody like them would make it safe for them to come out of the closet and speak their minds.

    From urban gay men to staunch liberal grandmothers, from a punk drag queen with black lips to a tattooed lesbian with a mohawk, those posting testimonials all had a breaking point, a moment when they decided to “walk away.”

    Lea Anna Bright, in a mohawk, looks into the camera and says in a slow, simmering voice: “This is a Vice article I am reading right now. It says, ‘The activist left doesn’t give a shit about your calls for civility. Get ready for a summer of rage.’” She looks up. “This is where the party is going, and this is why I chose to walk away. Peace. Not for me. Bye.”

    It’s important to note that most of those who #WalkAway are not embracing the GOP or even considering themselves conservatives or of the right; they are just walking away from the left and the Democratic Party.

    Here’s an example of the types of videos being shared by those in the #WalkAway movement:

    Twitter is flooded with #WalkAway tweets (naturally).

    There are a many many more, and they are fabulous!

    Now the GOP has to figure out how to appeal to these brave free-thinkers who rejected the left but aren’t yet ready to embrace the right.

    I was listening to the Rush Limbaugh Show the other day (Todd Herman was guest hosting) when a gay #WalkAway man called in. He said he had been so disgusted by the hatred coming from the left that he had to move to the right. Todd asked him how many people on the right had been unkind to him about being gay, and he said “exactly zero.” He said that all he had met with was friendliness and people welcoming him to join the MAGA movement. He said he is now solidly on the right after so many years of believing the lies coming from the left about how much the right hates him. He sounded joyful and relieved. We need this kind of messaging.

    Now as their ranks thin out, the ones still stuck on stupid have only one choice: get louder and stupider.

    #WalkAway – The Political Transformation of Ronald Reagan
    “In honor of the #WalkAway movement, we should take a moment to examine the personal and political transformation of Ronald Reagan—a liberal FDR Democrat who, by 1960, had made his own decision to #WalkAway and leave the Democratic Party for good. As we know, Reagan went on to become one of the key catalysts in the rebirth of the GOP, embodying the definition of a True Conservative, reshaping the political landscape of the United States, and being recognized as one of the biggest factors in the defeat of Soviet Union.

    When you decide to #WalkAway from the Democratic Party, you don’t walk away from politics, but embrace the reality of the world we live in and choose to see the truths woven into the fabric that shaped our nation and set us apart from all who came before.

    Make a difference in America today. #WalkAway and, like President Reagan before you, make a difference in a way you never could have before.”

    Thank God #WalkAway has been made, so many have been drinking the Kool-Aid, I thought America was going to die. Take the Red pill, find out why its called the RIGHT.

    We need to avoid another ‘neocon’ debacle. The last infiltration nearly cost us our party.

    So welcome to the right side but under no circumstances do we want or need your advice or opinion on anything. Certainly not any leadership. Which I am absolutely dead certain some of you will volunteer. Thanks but no thanks.

    When you have twenty years of sensible voting under your belt we can talk again.
