There is a new grassroots campaign that is working to remind liberal Americans of the values that they used to stand for.
Across America, sane Democrats and liberals are waking up to a political reality that they didn’t see coming. The Democrat Party and the “progressive” movement have gone off the rails, embracing an ideology that is even to the left of mainstream socialism.
Progressives are now openly advocating violence against their political opponents. Progressives are now calling for the destruction of every traditional American value that has guided our nation over the last 250+ years. Progressives demonize anything and anyone that has ever been viewed as “normative” in American culture. Progressives have come to hate white people, straight people, religion, and men.
These are not the values that liberals fought for in years gone by. But they are the values that the left is fighting for (literally) today.
Because of this, many former liberals (just Google Dave Rubin or Candace Owens) are leaving the Democrat Party and waking up to a new reality… that today’s defenders of “liberal” values (individual liberty and personal responsibility) are all on the right.
One of those former liberals, a gay New York City hairdresser named Brandon Straka has founded the #WalkAway movement and is calling on all sane Democrats and liberals to wake up and WALK AWAY from the regressive left.
Here is Straka’s manifesto, entitled: Why I Left Liberalism and the Democratic Party.
Straka also recently appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson show to talk about the #WalkAway campaign, and he once again eloquently hammered home the truth about the modern left’s fascist bent.
