Most Democrats were not just certain Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump, but that she was going to embarrass him, her support was that great across the land.
When it turned out that support for Trump was far greater, Democrats began a months-long meltdown that today has them so deranged they are actually latching onto Marxism and socialism because they think that’s their ticket back to power.
Since before POTUS Trump’s inauguration the party of love, tolerance, and inclusiveness has been anything but compassionate, tolerant or inclusive towards his supporters. Indeed, Trump supporters have increasingly been accused of being racists and bigots and compared to Brown Shirts and Nazis despite the fact that the vast majority of them have never demonstrated any of those traits.
The blatant hypocrisy and perpetual rage has burned out many Democratic supporters and now, thanks to a new movement begun unwittingly on social media, many of them are opting out of the party of hate.
As reported by The Epoch Times:
When actor James Woods tweeted out the hashtag “#WalkAway” in late June, even the alt-right missed the enormity of what lay beneath it. The Democratic Party had, in fact, struck an iceberg.
Some 5 million people on Facebook and YouTube have seen the video by now. A very handsome gay man, who you just assume is about to scold you on progressive talking points, instead says this: “Once upon a time, I was a liberal. Well, to be honest, less than a year ago, I was still a liberal.”
Here it is:
Today that man — Brandon Straka — is a recovering Democrat, if you will. He says he’s rejected “a system which allows an ambitious, uninformed and dogmatic mob to suppress free speech, create false narratives, and apathetically steamroll over the truth.” He noted further: “I reject hate.”
As do most rational people.
Straka’s rejection of Democratic rage and hypocrisy launched Woods’ #WalkAway hashtag into the social media stratosphere. He says a “silent minority” of Americans, because of their affinity for or trust in POTUS Trump, have lost jobs, been cast out by friends and family, and forced into silence because they don’t “get it” about how awful he really is (he’s not, mind you, but that’s the Left’s mindset).
Rage and hypocrisy are not winning converts
Straka and the scores of former Democrats who are flocking to line up behind his ‘cause’ are sick of the rage, sick of the violence, sick of their party’s creeping authoritarianism, and most of all sick to death about what’s happening to our country, thanks to perpetual Left-wing hate and violence. (Related: NEW LOW: Democrats sink AGAIN on generic ballot heading into 2018 midterms.)
“This is so much more than a hashtag on Twitter,” Straka told The Epoch Times. “This is a testimonial campaign, a grassroots movement that is going to change the political landscape of this country.”
Mind you, those “walking away” are not Hillary’s “basket of deplorables.” Rather, they are, in many cases, former Democrats who are sick of people like her characterizing her political opponents in such ways. And they have been waiting for someone who felt just like they do to open the door for them so they could walk through it.
People like Lea Anna Bright. Sporting a mohawk-style haircut, she posted a video in which she looks into the camera and says, “This is a Vice article I am reading right now. It says, ‘The activist left doesn’t give a s**t about your calls for civility. Get ready for a summer of rage.’”
Then she looked up and said, “This is where the party is going, and this is why I chose to walk away. Peace. Not for me. Bye.”
