The WalkAway movement is all about liberals who are abandoning the Democratic party over its embrace of the far left. Naturally, the far left isn’t happy about this. They’re even claiming Russia is behind the whole thing.

Russian bots are back: #WalkAway attack on Democrats is a likely Kremlin operation
A little more than a year ago, I posted and pinned the following predictive tweet: “Get ready. A year from right now we’ll be up to our asses in Russian fake news, malware, hacks, mayhem aimed at the midterms. Pinning this.” Granted, it wasn’t a difficult forecast knowing what we knew at the time…
One of the present-day agitprop campaigns linked to Putin’s hacker squads is the “WalkAway” hashtag.
The Huffington Post reported over the weekend that this troll attack is a counter-measure against the potential “blue wave” coming this fall, with the WalkAway hashtag intended to simulate real-world Democrats who have apparently chosen to leave the party due to its (try not to laugh) alleged intolerance and lack of civility…
To be clear: This isn’t being circulated by earnest yet misguided voters who formerly identified as Democrats. This is clearly being circulated by trolls connected to the Russian influence operations. #WalkAway has obvious roots in the 2016 primaries, when Russian trolls attempted to turn liberal or left-wing voters against casting general election ballots for the eventual Democratic nominee (either Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton), thus diminishing Democratic turnout.

Russian Bots Linked To Viral Twitter Attacks On ‘Hateful’ Dems
In what may be an early onslaught of Kremlin-linked Twitter attacks ahead of the U.S. midterm elections, Russia bots appear to be fueling a wave of criticism targeting Democrats over alleged intimidation in political confrontations and a lack of “civility,” according to bot trackers.
This proves only one thing. The left is terrified of this movement.
They should be.
