Walk Away Movement exits Democratic Party

Democrats Are Leaving Their Party in Droves. Conservatives Should Pay Attention.

Jeff Walyus

Two thousand years ago, St. Paul found himself blinded by a bright light on the road to Damascus. The dramatic experience led him to stop persecuting his opponents and to take up new beliefs.

Today, many former leftists are taking their first steps on their own road to Damascus, and the right is not doing nearly enough to capitalize on this unprecedented mass exit from the left.

It all began just a few short weeks ago when gay New York hairdresser Brandon Straka posted a hard-hitting video explaining why he is no longer a Democrat or a liberal. Since then, his #WalkAway Campaign Facebook group has attracted more than 172,000 members. A multitude of videos from other WalkAways have been posted online.

Make no mistake, the left has been greatly rattled by all this. The left’s treatment of the #WalkAway Campaign mirrors the way it reacted to the Tea Party movement. First, it ignored it, hoping it would go away. Then it moved on to minimizing and attempting ridicule, which it has done with #WalkAway. Steven Colbert and others claimed that the #WalkAway Campaign is just run by Russian bots.

Having seen that fail, the next step was to try to co-opt it with its own movement.

Bill Scher wrote a piece in Politico inviting Republicans to become Democrats. The suggestion is that Never Trumpers should walk away from the GOP, get themselves elected as delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention, and thereby prevent the Democratic Party from going full-blown socialist.

Liberal Hypocrisy

Nearly every WalkAway has a unique reason for leaving the Democratic Party. Some of the most common reasons I’ve encountered are:

  • The Democrat Party rejects Christian values.
  • Liberal rhetoric on helping the poor does not match up with reality. For instance, Democrat-run Los Angeles now has 55,000 homeless people living on the streets.
  • The left frequently denounces the armed services, law enforcement, and the American flag. Many military veterans are outraged by this.

There are countless others. But the wellspring of the #WalkAway movement has less to do with policy than with the realization that Democrats and the left invariably use despicable methods to achieve their goals, and without remorse. To the left, winning is all that matters.

Consider these words from one WalkAway, Rebecca Meli, who posted on Facebook:

The left only cares about pitting us against each other to keep control and keeping people dependent on them. … This movement has gone right to my core. To have the privilege of watching people think for themselves and recognize the deceitful practices of the left and the manipulation of minorities has been like an awakening.

Another WalkAway, Amanda Velásquez, wrote:

I am tired of the narrative, tired of people who don’t let you speak even if you have proof of what you are talking about, they attack you and label you as racist, closed-minded, and so on.

Many WalkAways have said it was easier to come out as gay than to come out as a conservative or libertarian. Many have even lost friends and been ostracized by family members because they decided to leave the Democrat Party.

One man, Vlad, who grew up in communist Poland, posted a YouTube video in which he compared the methods of today’s American left to the old communist government in his home country.

This is an extraordinary opportunity for conservatives, and it is not likely to come our way again in our lifetimes. Many of these WalkAways come from surprising demographics—gay people, ethnic minorities, and others.

The left worked these communities hard in amassing its power, and it is incumbent on the right to reach out to these same individuals. With the left inching ever closer to total victory, the right cannot afford to shun those who are like-minded just because they previously found themselves on opposite sides of a debate. This is a golden opportunity.

The bright light has shone. The WalkAways are on the move. We at Potomac Tea Party are doing our part to affirm their courageous personal decisions.

What will you do to get other former Democrats to Damascus?

Susan B. Anthony vs Abortion

A pro-lifer captured this ATROCIOUS billboard on camera:

So social media corporations can censor the free speech of pro-life voices for defending millions of innocent unborn babies, but this pro-abortion billboard treating the termination of life like it’s a trip to the spa is perfectly fine?

This propaganda is LITERALLY deadly.

We’re calling on 1 MILLION AMERICANS to join us in denouncing this despicable billboard. Will you be the FIRST one to start the petition?

Remember when we said that the abortion lobby’s goal is to completely normalize abortion in our culture until the point that it’s as ordinary as getting a manicure or a haircut?

This billboard is all the proof you need.

We can see it in the phrases “women’s health,” “reproductive rights,” “choice,” and now even “self-care.”

Susan B. Anthony List exists as an organization to stand tall as a loud pro-life voice in America. We fight non-stop to protect the lives of the unborn, counter the pro-abortion propaganda in our culture, and mobilize pro-life Americans to end abortion in our country.

But with the abortion lobby getting nastier, we need to stand our ground now, more than ever.

Please add your name to our petition to DENOUNCE this HEINOUS billboard.

For LIFE,

Emily Buchanan
Executive Vice President
Susan B. Anthony List

 

Kavanaugh Hearing Attendees Saw Liberal Protesters Paid Off With THIS

I didn’t dare use the term “leftist bullies” in the subject line. Google would likely censor it. ~C.D.

Supreme Court pick Judge Brett Kavanaugh continues to face unprecedented protests and interruptions during his questions before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Turns out, we may know what’s motivating at least some of Kavanaugh’s liberal detractors. (Gateway Pundit)
Now, this…

Several doctors from Texas attended the hearing today and told interviewer Adam Schindler that they witnessed organized activists with a literal bag of cash paying the rent-a-mob protesters.

RealClearPolitics has a complete transcript of the doctor’s claims to author Adam W. Schindler.

Kavanaugh Hearing Attendees Saw Liberal Protesters Paid Off With THIS

Discipline needed for Leftist Intimidation (bul lies)

KOMMONSENTSJANE – MANAGING THE SENATE JUDICIAL HEARINGS OR ANY GOVERNMENT HEARING.

If officials/citizens act like children – they need to be treated (heavily fined) accordingly and removed.

A new norm needs to be established because of the interference from the left in our government.

Something as important as the hearing for Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court should not end up as a travesty. Each person who attends these hearings should sign a “waver of conduct.”

This should also apply to the Senators who disrupted the hearings and the citizens. Being arrested and then being dismissed at the end of the day is not good enough. There has to be consequences for their actions (at least a fine). Also, the senators who misbehave should be heavily fined for not following the established decorum.
