No, the #WalkAwayMmovement isn't run by Russian bots - but it is a major threat to the Democratic Party

Posted: Jul 11th, 2018 - 11:12 am

Democrats want you to think the #WalkAway campaign is a right-wing propaganda effort propped up by a legion of Russian bots, but don't you believe it. Brandon Straka's WalkAway Facebook group now has over 106,000 members -- and anyone who takes the time to read their stories will quickly be disabused of the notion that bots could produce them.

The #WalkAway stories are compelling and often quite moving. People from every imaginable background -- black, white, Hispanic, rich, poor, straight, gay, trans, and even celebrity -- explain why they left the party. Most of these people voted Democrat their whole lives; most have lost friends for supporting President Donald Trump. Most have also found solace in the #WalkAway community.

In 2016, the Democrat media complex ignored the massive grassroots movement that came out in support for Trump, dismissing his massive rallies and popularity online as somehow insignificant. Now they are dismissing the #WalkAway campaign as a propaganda movement. Once again, something genuine and significant is happening across the nation, and it's getting ignored or ridiculed by media elites. It doesn't matter. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the movement is getting bigger and bigger with each day and there's nothing an elite can do to stop it.

n story after story, former Democrats -- including a popular, Grammy-nominated musician -- describe how they finally saw through the lies, smears, duplicity, and hypocrisy that infects today's Democratic Party. And how they couldn't help but notice the outrageous double standard in the way liberals and conservatives are treated. For people who remotely pay attention, the corrupt stench of the party is getting harder and harder to ignore.

"Laws are made for everyone and now it's as if Demacrats [sic] are protecting each other and seems like they can break the laws and they get away scot free," writes Barbara Kaminsky, who says she comes from a long line of Democrats. "If an ordinary person like me did the things they do I would be under the jail. I am disillusioned by the fact that Hillary got off with nothing for the massive corruption, dishonesty and lies she has done and just skates back to her mansion and a young naval man takes a picture to send his family and goes to prison. I could go on and on but I digress."

Christiana S. F. Chamon writes that she comes from "a very leftist Brazilian family" that essentially told her what to think. She says she voted for Obama twice, and really thought "Republicans were evil racists, bigots, and Bible thumpers."

Her eyes started to open near the end of her freshman year in college, when she says she started asking her leftist friends questions. "The more questions I asked, the more insults I was called," Chamon says. "'Racist,' 'sexist,' 'misogynist,' etc. I soon realized that these leftists are the very thing they claim to be against: racist, intolerant, close-minded, etc. Anything that dares be different from their echo chamber, immediately they lash out."

During her journey, Chamon found out that everything she was told about the opposing party was a lie. "[T]hese moderates/Libertarians/Republicans are some of the kindest, most open-minded people I've ever met," she writes. "Through friendly discussions with people on the center/right whom I disagreed with, I learned to look at things objectively and not base my opinions on those of a collective group, whether left or right. I became a free thinker, and I encourage everyone to do the same."

A lot of people walked away during Obama's nightmarish presidency.

One of those people, Jerri Rowan, says she'd had enough two years into it. "The changes I started seeing weren’t the changes that were so eloquently spoken about," Rowan, who was raised by Democrats, writes. "Instead I was seeing hatred and bigotry."

"The lies, hatred and continuing downward spiral of the democrats is insane," she continues. "Our community has a FB Page where I’ve had many conversations with what I thought were good people ... until they found out I voted for Trump. Wow, did they get nasty."

A legal immigrant from Romania who became a police officer says he started out as a Democrat, but during the Obama era, the party's hostility toward the police pushed him away. "They sadly really do remind me of the communist party back in Romania," Andrew Morrison writes. "The democrats are dangerous for the freedom and future of this country."

Barb Martino says she was a Democrat for her entire adult life, "voted for Obummer, and was very disappointed about his years in office." Excited to see a woman candidate for president, she said she paid close attention to Hillary Clinton's speeches and watched the debates. Soon she recognized the familiar Democrat talking points -- "the same old speech just delivered by a different candidate, 'empty promises.'"

"Then I started to take an interest in what DJT was saying," Martino continues. "And the light bulb went on, he was truly a candidate by the people and for the people, he said things so many of has were thinking. I knew then and there I was changing parties, I voted for him and so glad I did. I lost friends and got into heated arguments with family members on how could I vote for this man."

Jimmy Walker, a black man in his early 50s, says he's "ashamed to admit I voted for Obama twice."

"I was so annoyed by his administration performing drone strikes, passing constitutionally questionable laws and ignoring the plight of the black community, I stopped voting!" Walker writes. "The night of the 2016 election, I told my friend I honestly hoped Trump would win. He laughed and asked why. I quoted a line from the Nolan Batman movies and responded; 'Sometimes you want to see the world burn!' The next day, I almost got my playful wish! When I saw people screaming 'Not my President!' and doing and saying blatantly traitorous things, that was it! I spent the intervening years studying conservative alt media." Walker says he left the Democratic Party in May of this year. "When I meditated on our financial choices, going back to my grandparents, I noticed a sense of victimhood born from Democratic thinking. I needed to destroy this almost hereditary political malady!"
