#WalkAway Campaign gaining ground [video]

Ex-liberal who started #Walkway campaign says ‘oppressive’ Left has drowned out ‘common sense’

In an interview with RT, the #Walkaway campaign founder said the new movement urging people to leave the Democratic Party is helping thousands of disillusioned Democrats “regain their own voices and push back against “oppression” and incivility from the Left.”

New York-based stylist Brandon Straka, an openly gay man, created a short video explaining why he felt alienated by the Democratic Party and had to “walk away” – despite being a “lifelong liberal.”

Straka says the Democratic Party is over. In his #WalkAway Campaign video, he shares other peoples’ stories who decided to dissociate themselves from liberalism.

According to its Facebook page, its mission is to”encourage and support those on the left to walk away from the divisive tenets.”

Straka explained on The Ingraham Angle and on RT:

“I think the expectation for a lot of minority groups is that we’re supposed to vote Democrat, and that we’re supposed to be liberals. So I found myself sort of in that tribe on the Left most of my life. What I wanted to do is get people back in touch with their voices and push back against the narrative on the Left.”

Straka says that he watched with grave concern as “the Left devolved into intolerant, inflexible, illogical, hateful, misguided, ill-informed, un-American, hypocritical, menacing, callous, ignorant, narrow-minded, and at times blatantly fascistic behavior and rhetoric.”

Accusing Democrats of cultivating a victim mentality among the party’s minority supporters, Straka argues that its attempt to portray a person of color, a woman, an LGTB person, a migrant as a “victim of systemic oppression” is the Party’s “greatest and most insidious lie.”

Thousands of other wary Democrats have since joined Straka, posting videos explaining why they also felt compelled to leave the party. Here’s one of them:
