    Some are starting to look around the Dem party and realizing that they are total hypocrites. The left has shown just how hateful and intolerant they are, all the while pointing their fingers at others. They've done nothing for minorities. They've kept them down by making it nearly impossible for them leave the liberal plantation. The left preaches one thing and does another.

    They hate freedom of speech. They hate liberty. They hate our rights. They hate America.

    They love communist countries and evil dictators. They bash Trump and all Republicans yet sang the praises of Castro and his ilk for decades. They used to praise Russia.

    Now they are completely unglued because their plan to destroy America and replace it with an Oligarchy has been derailed. And they will continue to demonstrate pure hatred for Trump and all who voted for him. The "deplorables" stopped them. Now, the violence and propaganda have increased because they are desperate to regain some power so they can get their evil agenda back on track. I am hoping that more people have awakened to see what the Dem party has really become. Most don't hide their true vision anymore. Hillary was open about One World Government. For years, liberals rolled their eyes when this was bought up. The liberals also denied that they wanted socialism or communism for years and bashed anyone who suggested otherwise. Now, we know. The "conspiracy theorists" were right all along.

    Some Dems are starting to feel betrayed by the party because they can see that it stands for everything they hate.

    Great video at bottom explaining the reasons for the growing movement.


    "Manipulating Fear

    Straka, who grew up in a small town in Nebraska, was on board with the fear and loathing campaign around Trump until he began asking people back home why they had voted for him. To his astonishment, they told him about Obama-era regulations that had crippled their small businesses.

    He started to research media canards like the one about Trump supposedly mocking a disabled reporter. When he found that it was a total distortion, he kept going, his anger rising.

    He eventually became “completely ‘red-pilled.'” And isolated. He told himself that he would have to give up his lifelong dream of becoming an actor if he hit the “publish” button on his video, but, encouraged by one conservative gay friend, he decided to go ahead.

    “This was a matter of the media specifically using and manipulating people’s deepest fears, based on legitimate traumas,” he explained.

    “Many gay people have experienced very serious homophobia and even physical violence. Can you imagine manipulating a domestic violence survivor’s fears just for political purposes? It’s insane.

    “I was afraid of losing all my friends. As I began posting about these things on social media, people started attacking me and unfriending me.

    “But I thought, ‘You know what, this is too important.’ Maybe it’s the fact that I’m a gay man and I’ve already been through this—people making up lies about what it means to be gay and trying to shame me. I was like, ‘I’m not doing it. I’m not doing this twice.’

    “The more resentment I received, the stronger I got. Finally, I thought, ‘To hell with it. I’m just going to blow the lid off this whole thing and make this video.’”

    ------

    “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.”

    And then this devastating line—the Rosa Parks moment of the video:

    “I reject hate.”

    If Democratic strategists were still able to watch the rest of the video without suffering a nervous breakdown, they’d see that it quickly got worse.

    “These are the reasons why I became a liberal. And these are the same reasons why I am now walking away.”

    Tidal Wave

    Meet Brandon Straka, the unlikely liberator and new face of the “silent minority” of Americans who’ve been cast out by family and friends, fired from jobs, and forced into silent social ghettos for their failure to “get it” about how hateful and dangerous Donald Trump is, and why he and all his supporters should be subjected to an ever-expanding social and professional fatwah.

    Since Straka published his confessional video on May 26, his life as a New York City hairdresser and aspiring actor has been overtaken by a tidal wave.

    Do they love Dutarte? Kim? Putin? The growing rightwing authoritarians in Eastern Europe?

    A Republican with the nerve to talk about rights for gays.

    They can't possibly believe anyone could take that seriously.

    They are not right wing. If you understood governments, you would know that the farther left on the spectrum, the more tyrannical. The far right would actually be no government at all and total anarchy. Our Republic is just right of the middle.

    The FB pages are gaining lots of members each hour. Amazing how many former Dems are waking up. This guy simply broke away from group think and did his own research. The more facts he learned, the more he realized that the Dems are nothing but hypocrites with a nefarious agenda that has nothing to do with helping people.

    From above link:

    "They gather at his two Facebook groups, “The Unsilent Minority” and “WalkAway Campaign.” Those who have the courage post their own video testimonials about the moment when the abuse, rage, and ugliness of the Democrats caused them to finally leave the party and “walk away.”

    The walk away idea is certainly spreading fast.

    Now you've slipped from naive to pathetic. They are rightwing just like ol' Stalin was left. Quit the white washing. No amount of lipstick is going to change that pig.

    It absolutely amazes me how the right rush to disown their tyrants and revise history. Cowards.

    the dem party went from a steady march to the left to an all out sprint.

    prog dems are losing to socialists.

    I'd like to say it's coming apart, but the truth is that the progs will vote for a socialists before they vote for someone that cares about America.
