At the so-called “Whistleblower” hearings this week in the House Select Committee on Intelligence, ranking Republican member Devin Nunes (R-CA) explained why the House keeps trying to impeach the president for reasons that are spurious at best. He noted that Democrats “don’t want answers; they want a public spectacle.” He adds that “there are numerous examples of Democrats doing the exact same thing” that they accuse the President of doing. Nunes asks why Democrats are so eager to impeach the President when in just a year they will have a chance to get him out of office in an election. Then he quotes one of the first Democratic congressmen to call for Trump’s impeachment: “I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach the President, he will get reelected.”
Democratic policies and tactics go beyond ridiculous. And it is not just Republicans who have had enough of this Democratic duplicity. Last year, a New York liberal homosexual named Brandon Straka had had enough of the lies and deceit, so he walked away from the Democratic Party. On his webpage, www.WalkAwayCampaign.com, he explains that he was walking away “from the lies, the false narratives, the fake news, the race-baiting, the victim narrative, the violence, the vandalism, the vitriol.” At the bottom of his home page, is the video that sparked a movement. The key phrase from his video is “we reject hate.”
Hundreds of YouTube videos exist from other liberals who have joined the WalkAway Campaign. Thousands of testimonies appear on Straka’s Facebook page #WalkAway. These videos come from all types of people: Jews, Christians, gays, MBAs and Ph.D.s, single mothers, teenage mothers, welfare mothers, Hispanics, people of color, New Yorkers, Nebraskans, moderate liberals, social workers, veterans, lifelong Democrats, and more, but their videos and testimonies express a common theme. A few examples appear below:
“I have decided not to vote for Democrats ever again. It was the relentless attacks on Trump supporters. Democrats were being so abusive of Trump supporters that I thought I would do some research to find out who they were and why they supported him. They were nice people, smart, kind, loving, extremely well informed. They were actually making arguments. They weren’t name calling – which is not an argument. You can be intelligent but not wise. I was so embarrassed that I had not been wise.”
“They say they care about children at the border, but they are okay with abortion even though it’s been proven that unborn children feel pain. There is a lot to work on in both parties, but right now the Democratic Party has a whole lot more it needs to work on.”
“ I walked out of one closet and into another,” said a young lesbian who had to hide that she was a conservative because she would not be accepted by her liberal, homosexual community. “Then I found that conservatives would accept me.”
“The Democratic Party, the whole rise of the liberal thing, does not match my Christian values at all. And not just my Christian values, but they were moving away from common sense. I’m a single teenage mother, but I don’t see how they can scream about how I am oppressed. I’m not.”
“I’m a gay Jew, and the Democrats don’t take antisemitism seriously. They’ve brought in some of the most anti-Israel politicians imaginable – aided and abetted by a spineless Democrat Party. Democrats don’t care. I have come to despise the Democrats’ policy of identity politics. The concept that our problems are always someone else’s fault flies in the face of reality and is opposite of everything that America stands for.”
Liberals would do well to do their own research to find the truth. They should recognize that the Democratic Party is nothing like it was when Democrat John Kennedy was President. In fact, the most famous statement from his inaugural address, “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country,” is the antithesis of modern Democratic ideology. And conservatives need to welcome WalkAway liberals into a community focused on solving the problems of America, not on continuing to divide it for political gain, which is the Democratic leadership’s goal.
