#WalkAway Campaign To Hold #UNSILENT Majority March on D.C.
By Steven Neill
Gay conservative activist Brandon Straka started the #WalkAway movement with a video in 2018 explaining why he left the Democratic Party and encouraging others to do so as well. The video went viral after being shared by such famous conservatives as Donald Trump, Allen West, and Sarah Palin, and the movement now boasts more than 395,000 members.
#WalkAway not only encourages people to leave the Democratic Party, but it also provides a place to connect with others who have walked away from the craziness of the Left and into common sense and patriotism:
The #WalkAway Campaign is a true grassroots movement, founded by former liberal, Brandon Straka on May 26, 2018. The #WalkAway Campaign encourages and supports those on the Left to walk away from the divisive tenets endorsed and mandated by the Democratic Party of today. We are walking away from the lies, the false narratives, the fake news, the race-baiting, the victim narrative, the violence, the vandalism, the vitriol. We are walking away from a party driven by hate. We are walking toward patriotism and a new, unified America! We are the future of this great nation!
Since that time, #WalkAway has recorded the testimonials of tens of thousands of people walking away from the Democratic Party and planning on voting for Trump. They have put on rallies, talk shows, and their YouTube channel has over 146,000 subscribers. But it has not been easy, and the Left has pressured venues to cancel #WalkAway events, and BLM supporters physically attacked people attending a #WalkAway rally in Dallas.
While Straka and the folks at #WalkAway have had great success in the past, the events of 2020 have swelled their ranks more than they ever imagined possible. Over 70,000 people Walked Away from the Democratic Party in July alone. Buoyed by their success, #WalkAway decided it was time for a national event in time to help Trump’s reelection.
#WalkAway will put on the #UNSILENT Majority March on Washington this weekend in Washington, D.C.
The event will kick off with a #WalkAway American Women’s Town Hall outdoor gathering on October 2 featuring a high-powered lineup of conservative female speakers, including Lara Trump, Diamond & Silk, Katie Hopkins, Shemeka Michelle, and will be hosted by Straka. The speakers will be addressing why modern feminism is failing American women and why it is not needed to be successful. Watch the trailer here.
#WalkAway will hold their #UNSILENT Majority March on Washington D.C. the following day, October 3, with a slew of notable conservative speakers, including #WalkAway Founder Brandon Straka, Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), Editor-in-Chief of Uncover DC Tracy Beanz, political activist Scott Presler, Georgia State Representative Vernon Jones, Actor Lorenzo Llamas, political activist Maj Toure, YouTuber Blaire White, and many others. According to the event website, the goal of the march is to have people march alongside fellow patriots and encourage the Silent Majority to become #UNSILENT as we stand up for America and say NO to the radical left’s hatred, bigotry, violence, vandalism, fake news, race-baiting, censorship, division, and lies. America needs heroes now to save her — we are showing up to Rescue America!
Seeing what a great opportunity this movement offers to bring America back together, President Trump’s reelection campaign has teamed with #WalkAway in a powerful ad that came out in early September. The ad highlighted several people who have left the Democratic Party after realizing the party had long ago left them.
One of the people in the ad was an avowed socialist, and she speaks of Trump:
One of the hardest things to do is to challenge your own beliefs, I want people to hear my story and know that you can actually go from being a democratic socialist to a Trump supporter.
His entire campaign works for all Americans. That was a turning point for me.
Perhaps the most compelling is a young man who states:
I was renting a room in this woman’s apartment. She had three or four kids from three or four different fathers. She was my age, most of them [the fathers] were incarcerated.
I asked her “What do you do?”
She goes “I’m in the system.”
It feels like Democrats sort of get people hooked on this drug of free money. Where they basically say, you know, “If you want your fix you have to keep voting for us.”
With cultural Marxists attempting to foment a revolution in this country, is it not time to consider the ancient proverb, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Those who have decided to #WalkAway from the party destroying America might be a significant help in the effort to stop those destructive ideologies.
