Watch: The Video Convincing Dems To Abandon Party for Growing #WalkAway Movement

Share

If you’re active on Twitter you may already be aware, but for those who are not typically on the social media platform there has been a growing movement that is gathering steam and is now threatening the very heart and soul of the Democrat Party.

Known as the #WalkAway campaign, it is a movement composed of singular or threaded tweets from now-former Democrats which share their personal stories of how and when they decided to “walk away” from the Democratic Party.

The tweet-trackers at Twitchy compiled a mere handful of the thousands upon thousands of #WalkAway tweets into a post, and sardonically wondered why the popular hashtag campaign wasn’t listed as “trending” by Twitter itself, despite the voluminous activity involving the hashtag.

As compelling as many of those #WalkAway stories are — and the party should truly be concerned about the obvious hemorrhaging of support they are witnessing — perhaps the most compelling tale of all came from the founder of the campaign, a self-proclaimed formerly-proud liberal named Brandon Straka.

In an absolutely hard-hitting six-minute video, Straka offered up a litany of examples of how the Democrat Party has shifted farther and farther to the left, so much so that it has left ordinary, non-socialism-embracing liberal Americans without an adequate political party to call home any more.

Straka admitted that his moment of change came less than a year ago and ran through a list of strong personal beliefs that initially led him to be a liberal … only to find that those exact same reasons had now led him to #WalkAway from the party to which he once proudly belonged.

“For years now I have watched as the left devolved into intolerant, inflexible, illogical, hateful, misguided, ill-informed, un-American, hypocritical, menacing, calloused, ignorant, narrow-minded and, at times, blatantly fascistic behavior and rhetoric,” Straka said

He then explained how the left has become co-opted by the things they once claimed to oppose, such as prejudices and bigotry, and how he watched “formerly sensible people” openly embrace the sort of racism against white people that they claim to oppose against minorities, as well as how the push for gender and LGBT “equality” had transformed into open rhetorical assaults against men, masculinity and “heteronormativity” in general.

Straka lamented how the left had become “hypnotized by false narratives and conclusions” put forward by “social justice warriors” that purposefully misconstrued and misrepresented facts in order to confirm their own biases against their ideological opponents.

He took great umbrage with the use of demonizing labels — racist, bigot, Nazi, white supremacist, homophobic, Islamaphobic, xenophobic, misogynistic, alt-right extremist — to smear those same opponents and preemptively silence dissent from the progressive mantras.

Straka said that, perhaps worst of all was the fact that the Democratic Party had wholeheartedly embraced the radical left and bought into their own false narratives and mistaken beliefs to the complete exclusion of all others, and how they gleefully sought to fight supposed racism with more racism, lift up one group by attacking another and justified the use of whatever means necessary to achieve their desired end.

He spoke of the growing censorship of conservative and centrist voices by the left and decried the “hierarchy of victimhood” that they perpetuated to try and keep various minority and identity groups believing that they will always be victims so they stay within the fold … something he viewed as perhaps the left’s “most insidious lie.”

Straka recounted many of the lies that Democrats and the media will constantly tell people to keep them within the party — and how they ultimately never make good on their promises. He also encouraged others to weigh their own personal beliefs and values against those embraced by a transformed party, hopefully to reach the similar conclusion that it is time to simply #WalkAway.

This is an incredibly powerful video, one that Democrats and the liberal media establishment absolutely do not want people to watch and take to heart.

This video right here signifies a potential death knell for the Democrat Party, a serious blow to their base that they very well may never recover from … and we conservatives can only watch from the side and greet with open arms any former liberals who want to seek refuge and sanity from the increasingly insane party they have fled.
