(National Sentinel)Â Me Too: It started as a video featuring a handsome gay man and now it’s morphed into a tidal wave: The #Walkaway campaign has gained huge momentum as scores of former Democrats leave the party that has long ago leftÂ them.
According to a June article inÂ Epoch Times:
When actor James Woods tweeted out the hashtag â€œ#WalkAwayâ€ 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:
â€œOnce upon a time, I was a liberal. Well, to be honest, less than a year ago, I was still a liberal.
â€œI reject a system which allows an ambitious, misinformed and dogmatic mob to suppress free speech, create false narratives, and apathetically steamroll over the truth.â€
And then this devastating lineâ€”the Rosa Parks moment of the video:
â€œI reject hate.â€
If Democratic strategists were still able to watch the rest of the video without suffering a nervous breakdown, theyâ€™d see that it quickly got worse.
â€œThese are the reasons why I became a liberal. And these are the same reasons why I am now walking away.â€
Since then, scores of people claiming to be former Democrats have picked up the #Walkaway gauntlet and followed the man,Â Brandon Straka, and declared their independence from the party of hate, division, lies, and intolerance — as the party continues to lurch leftward as it rages perpetually against POTUS Donald Trump and his supporters.
Breitbart News adds:
The movement has been especially successful because its spokespersons have not been the sort typically associated with conservativism. Young and old, black and white, men and women, gay and straightâ€”the campaign seems to elude stereotypes and pigeonholing.
The popular young conservative commentator C.J. Pearson, for instance, has given the movement a significant push by highlighting the Democratic Partyâ€™s racist past. â€œThe Democratic Party is the party of slavery. The party of Jim Crow. The party of segregation. The party of the KKK,â€ Pearson tweeted Saturday.
â€œDemocrats walked away from black folks long ago. Now, itâ€™s our time to #WalkAway,â€ he added.
The Democratic Party is the party of slavery. The party of Jim Crow. The party of segregation. The party of the KKK.

According toÂ Straka, this is â€œso much more than a hashtag on Twitter.â€
â€œThis is a testimonial campaign, a grassroots movement that is going to change the political landscape of this country.â€
The movement explained by Straka:

The #WalkAway campaign is so incredibly important. Work like this has never been done before in the conservative movement.
Every single day, in every corner of America, black and brown Americans are opening their eyes.
In 2020 – Democrats will be hit harder than ever before.

I was born in the Soviet Union and immigrated to America to find freedom and a better life. When I came they told me immigrants have to be Democrat, but they don’t stand for freedom. They want to tell you how to live. That’s why I #WalkAway

I didn’t vote for Trump. I wasn’t sure he was right. But after seeing the vitriol from the left, and a recent incident where my close friends were called Nazis for supporting Trump when they’re they most accepting and loving people I know, I’m choosing to #WalkAway. For good.

And so on.
The Democratic Party has so overplayed their hand when it comes to the constant Trump hate. Calling people who support law enforcement, border enforcement, liberty, freedom, and opportunity for “Nazis” and “fascists” just doesn’t play well with most Americans.
