We recently did a story about Brandon Straka, the New York man who launched a movement for people to walk away from the Democratic Party. His viral video, which you can watch below, caught on and people are starting to pay attention.
The Epoch Times reports:
Viral ‘Walk Away’ Videos Highlight Growing Movement of Democrats Leaving the Party
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.
“I reject a system which allows an ambitious, misinformed and dogmatic mob to suppress free speech, create false narratives, and apathetically steamroll over the truth.”…
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.
Here’s the video:
Thousands and thousands of people are now joining the movement and talking about it on Twitter:
I'm a 4th generation Latino who grew up in a home whose parents were Democrats but who #walkedaway and I'm so glad they did. The Dems represent everything that is against the family, religious freedoms and national security.#Walkaway.

Left the Democrat party in 2016 when they continued drifting far left. I don't even recognize the party in 2018. #walkaway

Leftists call people on the right “closed minded” when they are the closed minded ones. They close themselves off to real facts, the TRUTH, and instead resort to using words like “nazi” and “fascist” to back up their “claims”. I am walking away from radical leftism. #WalkAway
