It’s “intolerant, inflexible, illogical, hateful, misguided, ill-informed, un-American, hypocritical, menacing, callous, ignorant, narrow-minded and at times blatantly fascistic,” says a new political activist who has created a campaign online to oppose a party that he says he’s leaving.
Naturally, he was a silver-spoon-in-mouth Republican, with corporate executive parents and privilege from morning until night, and he’s fed up, right?
He’s leaving liberalism and the Democrats.
His video is titled “#WalkAway Campaign – Why I left liberalism & the Democratic Party” and is one of those must-see projects.
Be forwarned about offensive images in the video:
Brandon Straka explains he’s, “for years,” watched as the “left has devolved” into that list of negatives above.
So now it’s over.
He’s online at Facebook and other social media sites and his campaign is moving in viral leaps and bounds.
He explains the movement is “dedicated to sharing the stories of people who can no longer accept the current ideology of liberalism and what the Democratic Party has become.”
The reason is the ugly turn the party has taken in recent years, especially since Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election. He left in the dust the now twice-failed Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Since then she’s been on a nonstop tour blaming, well, everyone else, for her loss. Democrats have stalled and stymied Trump’s agenda whenever they can. They’ve started investigations, possibly even with made-up claims. Their rhetoric has reached epic proportions, including encouraging people to confront administration workers wherever they are and telling them they are not welcome.
The new social media group explains it exists to encourage and support those on the left to walk away from the divisive tenets by allowing people to share their stories, or watch the video testimonies and read the posts of others who have walked away.
“It is my sincere hope that you will join me in this campaign and that we may start a movement in this country – which not only encourages others to walk away from the divisive left, but also takes back the narrative from the liberal media about what it means to be a conservative in America,” Straka states.

“It is up to all of us to make our voices heard and reclaim the truth. The Democratic Party has taken for granted that it owns racial, sexual, and religious minorities in America. It has encouraged groupthink, hypocrisy, division, stereotyping, resentment, and the acceptance of victimhood mentality. And all the while, they have discouraged minorities from having independent thought, open dialogue, measured and informed opinion, and a motivation to succeed.”
More than a million times the video has been watched on Facebook. More on YouTube. And the page has more than 20,000 likes.
Straka, according to PJMedia, is “a gay man from Nebraska [who] says that he is one of the liberals who melted down in November of 2016 after Trump was elected.”
He commented during a recent interview with David Harris, “It’s funny now, but at the time it was completely tragic. I was like a heartbeat away from being that ‘Leave Britney alone!’ guy … crying hysterically.”

He believed, at first, “all of the media lies about Trump being a ‘racist, bigot, sexist, homophobe, sexual predator.”
But after a bit, he awakened.
“Light bulb isn’t even the word. It’s like the sun came up,” he said.
A key was when he saw a video that exposed a lie claiming Trump had made fun of a reporter’s disability.
The question then was raised… what else might not be true.
He cites racism, marginalism, tyrannical groupthink, free speech suppression, false narratives, junk science, and hate.
“These are the reasons why I became a liberal. And these are the same reasons I am now walking away.”
He said the left “destroys anybody who dares to fight back.”
“They’ll come for me and then they’ll come for you,” he warns.
