The Democrats are panicking over the new #WalkAway movement, started when a gay hairdresser in New York made a video of why he was walking away from the Democratic party. Five million people have now watched the video.
This movement, started with a simple YouTube video is now growing by leaps and bounds as Democrats are taking a good look at their party and are appalled by what they see.
“Once upon a time, I was a liberal. Well, to be honest, less than a year ago, I was still a liberal,” begins Brandon Straka, the unlikely face of the new “silent minority” of Americans.
“I reject a system which allows an ambitious, misinformed and dogmatic mob to suppress free speech, create false narratives, and apathetically steamroll over the truth,” he says. “I reject hate.”
“These are the reasons why I became a liberal. And these are the same reasons why I am now walking away.”
Straka published his original #WalkAway video on May 26, and since then his life “has been overtaken by a tidal wave,” the Epoch Times reports.
Young Conservative CJ Pearson made a video highlighting the Democrat’s racist past.
“The Democratic Party is the party of slavery. The party of Jim Crow. The party of segregation. The party of the KKK. Democrats walked away from black folks long ago. Now, it’s our time to #WalkAway.”
The Democratic Party is the party of slavery. The party of Jim Crow. The party of segregation. The party of the KKK.

Here is the latest video of what is happening inside the movement and I believe it says it all:
