A new political movement that urges liberals to #WalkAway from the Democratic Party held a march in Washington, D.C., on Saturday that drew thousands who chanted USA! USA!
The #WalkAway movement, which is only five-months-old, advocates that those who feel disillusioned with the current state of the party – which many say has resorted to using scare tactics and identity politics – to come out publicly against it.
Where #WalkAway began
Five months ago, Brandon Straka was a New York City hairstylist and aspiring actor with a small social media following. Now, he’s a frequent Fox News contributor with nearly 70,000 Twitter followers, whose posts have been shared by Donald Trump Jr. and Sarah Palin.
His ascent to conservative-media darling began on May 26, when Straka posted a now-viral video describing why he fled the Democratic party.
