Brandon Straka went on Tucker Carlson’s show to explain why the campaign he founded, “Walk Away” is going viral.
Basically “Walk Away” is a campaign encouraging progressives and leftists to leave the Democrat party because it has gotten too far left and basically insane. Straka says he objects to the anti-white extremism of the party, and wants more people to join him.
There’s a lot of tweets about this campaign – some from leftists, some from right-wingers supporting it:
I chose to #walkaway when I saw the damage that political correctness is actually doing to freedom of speech. PC does not give a shit about people's actual opinions and concerns. It only strives for looking pretty. There is a difference between looking pretty and BEING pretty— Sometimes Summer (@SummerSometimes) July 2, 2018
How could I raise my sons to believe in the Sovereign God, but also teach them that they are victims and must have government help? DOES NOT MATCH. #WalkAway— Erica Day (@THEEricaDay) July 3, 2018
Thank you Brandon Straka!!! My husband and I have been Democrats & liberals for over 50 years and we can see the hate, lies and other extreme behaviors and feel disgusted! We are seriously thinking of registering as Republicans! But feel torn! #walkaway— yew (@cecilia48188170) July 3, 2018
I chose to #WalkAway from a party that was founded on racism.— Og_Don_Thotta (@DonThotta) July 2, 2018
Hi @maddow! My buddy #BrandonStraka of @usminority laid down the gauntlet tonight on @TuckerCarlson. Said he "THOUGHT #RachelMaddow told the truth!" The question is, are you brave enough to have Brandon on YOUR show? #WalkAway #WalkAwayCampaign— Pete Holmberg (@PeteHolmbergNYC) July 3, 2018
#Walkaway I was raised a Democrat but once I learned that economics worked against their premises, I jumped ship. And it's only gotten worse since.....— Elaine (@zanione123) July 3, 2018
OMG! #Walkaway is EXPLODING! Gays, Blacks, Hispanics, Legal Immigrants, White Liberals are are all hoping on the Trump Train in Droves! "Sometimes you just have to 'Walk Away'".— John E. Cobb (@johnecobb) July 2, 2018
If this means people are leaving the democrats, then that’s great. But I am a little skeptical. There were similar dubious claims made by the same people before the election that Trump was going to win a majority of blacks and a majority of Hispanics and it was going to be a rout. It wasn’t. And Twitter spreads spurious claims much too quickly. But, if any of it is true, well that’s a good thing.
