Black, Gay, Vet Leaves Democratic Party, Becomes Republican – Needs Everyone To Know Why

This is a MUST see!

Published

on

Now boasting nearly 150,000 members in its Facebook group and widespread media coverage, the #WalkAway movement is taking the Democratic Party by storm. Former Democrats telling their stories of why they are choosing to #walkaway on various forms of social media is a message that resonates with many Americans. Brandon Straka, a gay hairdresser from New York City is the founder of the “Walk Away” campaign along with the viral hashtag #WalkAway.

According to Fox News, Straka cites the “negative rhetoric spoken by the left and intolerance it has shown has been a big reason as to why he’s walked away.” He simply made a video explaining the evolution of his thought process, and his choice to simply “walk away” from a political party that he believes left him behind. Posting his thoughts on social media, it promptly went viral.

Straka begins with… “Once upon a time, I became a liberal. Well, to be honest, less than a year ago, I was still a liberal.”

He continues – “I reject a system which allows an ambitious, misinformed and dogmatic mob to suppress free speech, create false narratives, and apathetically steamroll over the truth….I reject hate.”

He called liberalism “intolerant, inflexible, illogical, hateful, misguided, ill-informed, un-American, hypocritical, menacing, callous, ignorant, narrow-minded and at times blatantly fascistic. He then adds – “If you are a person of color, an LGBT person, a woman or an American immigrant, the Democratic Party wants you to know you are a victim. This is perhaps the Democratic Party’s greatest, and most insidious, lie.”

Straka at one point was denied service at electronics superstore Adorama in Manhattan after he was recognized after an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson talking about the “Walk Away” campaign.

He tweeted –  “I’m shaking right now. I just went into a camera store to buy a camera and a light and mic, etc. and they recognized me from tv. I was refused service because they said it was for “alt right” purposes. That literally just happened.”

Rob Smith is another man who chose to leave the Dem party. Inspired by Straka’s campaign, Smith also chose to #walkaway. A black, gay, Army veteran, Smith was also sick of being told he was little more than a victim and forced to participate in identity politics and false narratives.

Appearing on Fox News’ “Watters’ World” on Saturday, Smith states – “I think for me, I got so sick of the lies. What they were telling black people. When you are a black person you get messages from Democrats saying you are a victim and you need us to succeed and you need us to achieve, you need this ever-expanding welfare state to make something of yourself. I got tired of it and sick of that message that it needed them, and I got sick of that message of victimhood that they continue to push to black Americans for the last three decades of my life.”

Smith stated he simply gave up on the Democratic party because he refuses to be told what to think or say or be “kept in line.” He explained – “I think Democrats use identity politics to keep people in line. To keep black people in line. To keep Latinos in line. To keep gay people in line. I’m black and gay, and I have seen them use the same tactics for black people as they do for gay people.”

Smith also spoke with Watters on just how difficult it was to choose to walk away. Smith made the distinction that it was actually easier to come out as a gay man than it was a Republican. He explained – “I didn’t lose friends when I came out as gay. I’ve lost friends since coming out as Republican. People do not understand it and these are the… left, that’s supposed to be so tolerant and inclusive. These are the people who were the first to shun me when I came out as conservative.”

Smith states he has personally faced a lot of criticism for his choices and has been called everything but a “child of God” for choosing to follow what his conscience dictates that he must do. He asked simply – But why can’t I have different ideas? Why can’t I be free thinking? Why can’t I have a victor mentality?”

Watch.

The #WalkAway stories are compelling and often quite moving, resonating with large swaths of the population. People from every imaginable background — black, white, Hispanic, rich, poor, straight, gay, trans, and even celebrities have spoken out and explained their reasons for choosing to leave the Democratic party. Many of them have voted as a Democrat since they were first able to vote.  The majority of them have lost friends for choosing to think for themselves and refusing to be “kept in line.” Many of them have also found support and friendship among others also dealing with the same level of displacement in the #WalkAway community.

Interestingly enough, the “Walk Away” Campaign has gained such traction and so many have responded choosing to #walkaway, left-leaning mainstream media sources have attempted to discredit the movement claiming that it is simply a right-wing propaganda effort propped up by a legion of Russian bots.

PJ Media reports – “In 2016, the Democrat media complex ignored the massive grassroots movement that came out in support for Trump, dismissing his massive rallies and popularity online as somehow insignificant. Now they are dismissing the #WalkAway campaign as a propaganda movement. Once again, something genuine and significant is happening across the nation, and it’s getting ignored or ridiculed by media elites. It doesn’t matter. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the movement is getting bigger and bigger with each day and there’s nothing an elite can do to stop it.

In story after story, former Democrats — including a popular, Grammy-nominated musician — describe how they finally saw through the lies, smears, duplicity, and hypocrisy that infects today’s Democratic Party. And how they couldn’t help but notice the outrageous double standard in the way liberals and conservatives are treated. For people who remotely pay attention, the corrupt stench of the party is getting harder and harder to ignore.

“Laws are made for everyone and now it’s as if Demacrats [sic] are protecting each other and seems like they can break the laws and they get away scot free,” writes Barbara Kaminsky, who says she comes from a long line of Democrats. “If an ordinary person like me did the things they do I would be under the jail. I am disillusioned by the fact that Hillary got off with nothing for the massive corruption, dishonesty and lies she has done and just skates back to her mansion and a young naval man takes a picture to send his family and goes to prison. I could go on and on but I digress.”

Christiana S. F. Chamon writes that she comes from “a very leftist Brazilian family” that essentially told her what to think. She says she voted for Obama twice, and really thought “Republicans were evil racists, bigots, and Bible thumpers.”

Her eyes started to open near the end of her freshman year in college, when she says she started asking her leftist friends questions. “The more questions I asked, the more insults I was called,” Chamon says. “‘Racist,’ ‘sexist,’ ‘misogynist,’ etc. I soon realized that these leftists are the very thing they claim to be against: racist, intolerant, close-minded, etc. Anything that dares be different from their echo chamber, immediately they lash out.’

During her journey, Chamon found out that everything she was told about the opposing party was a lie. ‘[T]hese moderates/Libertarians/Republicans are some of the kindest, most open-minded people I’ve ever met,’ she writes. ‘Through friendly discussions with people on the center/right whom I disagreed with, I learned to look at things objectively and not base my opinions on those of a collective group, whether left or right. I became a free thinker, and I encourage everyone to do the same.'”

More Than 90 Muslims Running For Office Across U.S. All Have The Same Thing In Common

This demographic is growing quickly

Published

on

As the 2018 midterms heat up, the choice of political candidates is becoming ever more diverse and somewhat confusing. There are a ton of Muslim candidates running for office across the United States. Most are Democrats as far as I know and support a liberal agenda. This election cycle has seen more Muslim candidates running for office than I can ever remember in my lifetime. At least one in Minnesota is pretty much a done deal and others may follow suit.

Fayaz Nawabi, who is 31 years old, is one such candidate in San Diego, California. He has never met President Trump, but he does give him credit for his running for office currently. He is running for San Diego City Council. Nawabi is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. He’s also pro-gun control. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates that are spurred to run by Trump’s election and his conservative policies. The blue wave’s political platform is exceedingly liberal in all respects and pretty much the polar opposite of Trump’s.

In fact, Nawabi is part of a new subset of liberal politics… the blue Muslim wave. More than 90 American Muslims are running for office this time around. They are young and new to politics. They all have in common that they are long shots, stand against President Trump’s policies and are primarily Democrats. But even if they lose, they will surely run again next time around and they are gaining experience on the ground this campaign season.

Their numbers may seem relatively small, but their candidacies are a trend. This is an unprecedented rise in political numbers for the nation’s diverse Muslim community that typically has been underrepresented in American politics. Currently, there are more than 3.3 million Muslims that live in the United States. And that number is increasing every year. Right now, they hold just two of the 535 seats in Congress. Voter participation in Muslim communities is very low as well. That’s something these candidates are trying to rectify.

From The Counter Jihad Report:

“The rise of Muslim candidates coincides with the growth of the predominantly immigrant population and a partisan shift that has played out over a generation. In a 2001 Zogby poll of American Muslims, 42 percent said they voted for Republican George W. Bush in the previous year’s presidential election, while 31 percent said they voted for Democrat Al Gore. By last year, just 8 percent of voting American Muslims in a Pew poll said they voted for Trump, while 78 percent said they voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“While Clinton’s campaign never garnered broad enthusiasm from Muslim communities, Trump’s campaign — which called for the monitoring of mosques and a ban on Muslims entering the United States — delivered a jolt on election night that some American Muslims likened to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“’It woke everyone up,” Nawabi said.

“Now, Muslim candidates are running for a wide range of offices across the country, from local school boards to the U.S. Senate. Some are making their Muslim identity central to their campaigns.

“’When you put someone in a corner and they’re in survival mode, they have a tendency to come out and speak more prominently about their beliefs,” said Nawabi, who considers himself an “unapologetic Muslim” who can quote the Koran from memory and moonlights as a “freelance imam.’”

In Michigan alone, there are thirteen Muslim candidates running for office. Physician Abdul El-Sayed is hoping voters will elect him to be the first Muslim governor in the United States and he has used his religious affiliation unapologetically in his campaign ads against Republican front-runner Bill Schuette, whom Trump has endorsed. “Donald Trump and Steve Bannon would love to see a right-wing radical like Bill Schuette elected in Michigan,” reads a Facebook ad for El-Sayed, who faces a Democratic primary in August. “You know what would be sweet justice? If we elected a 33-year-old Muslim instead of Bill Schuette. Send a message and help elect the first Muslim governor in America.” Michigan is pretty much ground zero for Muslim politics these days. A fierce battle in politics is playing out there in Muslim communities.

Another candidate is Asif Mahmood, a 56-year-old pulmonologist. He would be the first Muslim insurance commissioner in California. Deedra Abboud, 45, in Arizona, or Jesse Sbaih, 42, in Nevada, could be the country’s first Muslim senator. And any one of four Muslim women running for office: Nadia Hashimi, 40, in Maryland; Sameena Mustafa, 47, in Illinois; or Fayrouz Saad, 34, and Rashida Tlaib, 41, in Michigan could be the first female Muslim in Congress.

As I said, many of these new candidates may not win this time around, but give it time. They are determined and their communities are pulling together behind them. The proof will be in the statistics, polls and voter turnouts come election day. This demographic is growing quickly and you will definitely see more Muslims in office in the next election cycle or two should this trend continue.

Sarah Breaks Down In Tears In Front Of Reporters After Bravely Making Personal Announcement

This speaks volumes about who she is.

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the pillar of professionalism and grace under fire. Since being hired for the role and having to conduct frequent press briefings to the mainstream media wolves, she’s been a perpetual target of the most ruthless attacks. The media she briefs aren’t the only ones who come at her. Late night talk show hosts and celebrities in Hollywood have also enjoyed making fun of her to no end. After a while, it would take it’s toll on anyone regardless of your strength and solid sense of self-worth.

Sarah has still has to do her job daily in the face of all of that torment and does so flawlessly. From how she holds herself, there’s no telling what she really feels inside. However, she recently lost her composure, and rightfully so, when she broke down in tears in front of reporters as she began to make a very personal announcement.

President Trump knew what he was doing when he put this incredible woman in this position. She’s the very best for the job and more importantly, has Trump’s back. There’s no question how much she genuinely respects him and the job he’s doing as our nation’s leader. Proving that, was when she began to cry while revealing what she found on his desk.

Editor’s Note: This particular story was popular at the time it originally made the news and is circulating again a second time for the important and applicable message that’s relevant today.

Western Journalism reports:

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders grew visibly emotional during a press briefing Thursday as she read from a 10-year-old letter recently sent to President Donald Trump from a Tennessee man named Joseph.

The father of an Air Force master sergeant currently on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, Joseph wrote the letter while his son was serving in Iraq, to remind him of everything that was at stake.

“Please don’t lose sight of your purpose,” Joseph had written. “You’re the only hope and glimmer of light for the good, innocent men, women and children that you are protecting. This may be hard for you to see or understand.

“Most people know that all of you are there because you volunteered to be there. Your actions and dedication are seen by people throughout the world as without a doubt the most heroic action of any person which can be made.

“You and the soldiers standing next to you from all of the other countries are the pride of not only the nations they represent, but every individual that yearns to be free,” the letter concluded. “Stand tall, my son, and be steadfast. For it is you who are the defender of freedom.”

As she read it, the emotion from the podium was palpable. Like Trump, Sanders has a deep respect for the men and women who serve our country. It was personal to her to make this announcement and obviously important.

“We owe it to the servicemen and women like the master sergeant who have fought in our name in Afghanistan for 17 years and to the families who have watched them go to secure an honorable and lasting outcome to this conflict,” Sanders saids during the press briefing, after reading the letter aloud.

Western Journalism added:

Though many on both the right and left have complained over the president’s just-announced decision to escalate the United States’ war in Afghanistan, it’s clear by Joseph’s poignant words why we can’t give up now when we’ve already come this far.

Closing up the briefing, Sanders noted that Joseph told Trump he had been a police officer for 30 years and that he sent the letter to the president in the hopes he’d read it.

“I’m glad to say that he did earlier today,” she said.

Each citizen is so important and special to the president, that he read this letter and kept it within reach, despite receiving an overwhelming amount of mail daily, most likely. He promised to work for the “average” American and our military and is doing just that. Part of Joseph’s words to his son also apply to Sanders and Trump as well: “Please don’t lose sight of your purpose.” America needs them both to remain steadfast to their purpose through the challenges heaped on them by detractors. There’s no doubt they too will fight until the end.
