If Brandon Straka of Unsilent Minority was standing in defense of socialism, he would probably be a millionaire by now. George Soros would be tripping over himself to throw dollars in his direction. But Brandon Straka is, instead, making a stand against the left. As a lifelong Democrat, Straka is disgusted with the hypocrisy of the Democrat party and has made the very public decision to #WalkAway.
Watch the Unsilent Minority Video that launched the movement:
Brandon wants to dedicate himself to this movement. Give him a hand. He intends on creating a website and doing man-on-the-street interviews. This is time-consuming work and it takes money. Help him help us!
Using the #WalkAway hashtag, former democrats are tweeting about their decision to leave the Democrat party. Brandon has unleashed a movement on Twitter, albeit a clearly suppressed movement, even though thousands upon thousands of people are using the hashtag.
Here are just some:
Thread: I decided to #WalkAway as a former Obama supporter after realizing how dangerous the Democratic Party is. Open borders. High taxes. Socialism. Sucking up to Islamic terrorists. Taking away our guns. The LLM (Lying Liberal Media), Sanctuary cities. GENDER PRONOUNS…

I was a Democratic activist for 15 years, but the 2016 election opened my eyes. I don’t recognize the party anymore. It is corrupt and hostile to independent thinkers; its leaders are divisive and hypocritical. It advances no ideas or serious policy, just hostility. #WalkAway

A Democrat would give the shirt off my back and the money in my pocket to an illegal immigrant – which is one of the MANY reasons why I chose to #WalkAway

Maxine Waters attack message is the exact time the Democrat Party jumped the shark.#WalkAway

Voted for Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, and Obama. My eyes were opened once I found out the real frauds that the Democrat party had become. None of them ever delivered any promise ever made. Until Trump came along … the rest is history. #WalkAway #MAGA2020

I voted for Bill Clinton twice. Voted AGAINST both Bushes and for Obama in 08. Consider myself a moderate. Thought O would bring us together. He didn’t so shamefully I didn’t vote in 12. When Hillary said she was for open borders and partial birth abortion I decided to #walkaway

I was a life-long Democrat, I caucused for Hillary in 2008, voted for Obama the first time. After Benghazi I couldn’t continue as a Democrat. The party didn’t give a damn that 4 Americans died while Obama & Hillary did nothing. Best decision I ever made. #WalkAway

I was a leftist for much of my life & happily voted for Obama in ’08. I had to #WalkAway as I watched the left promote censorship, foster division, intolerance, & histrionic vitriol, justify political violence, and actively work to restrict and violate our Constitutional rights.

Here is Brandon’s Announcement from Facebook:
Today I’m kicking off the #WalkAway campaign by releasing my video about why I am walking away from liberalism and the Democratic Party. 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. 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.
Please like and share my video, and please post your own #WalkAway video!! If you are a former liberal who has walked away from the left, please share your story, or your message, or your thoughts in a video on the WalkAway Campaign Facebook Page.
If you are a lifelong conservative or non-Democrat, please share your story, message, or thoughts on what it truly means to be a conservative. Right now, the liberal media continues to perpetuate a false narrative about the “hateful” and “bigoted” right. Use your voice to let people know who conservatives really are. Be sure to use the hashtag #WalkAway.
