#WalkAway movement urges disgruntled Democrats to leave the party behind

A newly created political movement urging liberals to leave the Democratic Party held a march in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. The five-month-old #WalkAway movement advocates that those who feel disillusioned with the party — which some say uses scare tactics and identity politics — to come out publicly against it. Several hundred supporters attended Saturday’s mile-long march along Pennsylvania Avenue — from John Marshall Park near the Capitol to Freedom Plaza near the White House. “We’re walking away from the Democratic Party and literally walking toward freedom,” #WalkAway founder Brandon Straka told Fox News. Straka spearheaded the movement after posting an online video in May explaining why he was abandoning the Democratic Party. “People are fed up with what’s happening on the left,” he said, adding that interest skyrocketed after the hearings into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanauagh. “These were really the kind of die-hard loyalists. People in their 60s and 70s who had been Democrats their whole life who said ‘This was the final straw for me.’” Scores of video testimonials posted to the #WalkAway Campaign Facebook page give a variety of reasons for switching political allegiances. Some said the Democratic Party has become hate-filled and hostile to opposing points of view while moving further to the left. Others say they were tired of the party’s “politically correct” culture. The movement caught President Trump’s attention. He tweeted about the event before it began: “Walkaway from the Democrat Party movement marches today in D.C. Congratulations to Brandon Straka for starting something very special.” Straka said he’s most proud that minority groups, such as Latinos, African-Americans and the LGBTQ community, have embraced his movement. “These minority groups that I think the Democratic Party has had sort of a stranglehold for so long on, they are walking away,” he said. “They want to be self-empowered.”

Indeed..  Boy is this driving the dominantly liberal mainstream media (i.e. NBC, CNN, MSNBC, etc.), which is just a propaganda machine for the Democratic party, absolutely crazy!  CNN is suggesting that this movement doesn’t even exist, and that it’s ploy by the RNC and Russia to divide the Dem party.  THAT is how crazy CNN and MSNBC are.  They cannot accept the fact that there are some disillusioned life-long Dems, who have had enough of their party, and are “walking away” from it.  Imagine that..  For more, click on the text above.
