Ep. 129 - Brandon Straka, Founder of the viral #WalkAway social media movement joins Dave Sussman for this special Independence Day edition of Whiskey Politics.
"The #WalkAway Campaign is a true grassroots movement dedicated to sharing the stories of people who can no longer accept the current ideology of liberalism and what the Democratic Party has become." Brandon discusses his personal story, how the movement is growing, how the Left has reacted to him as a threat to their power, his thoughts on leaving the Democratic Party and why other's should follow. With millions of views, reposts and retweets Brandon is a busy man being interviewed by news channels including Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson on Fox News, numerous newspapers, and blogs. Our discussion focuses on how Brandon went from crying over Hillary Clinton's loss to within a year speaking out against the Left, how others liberals are joining him and answering some Ricochet member questions.
Brandon's Facebook Group provides the ability for members to "encourage and support those on the left to walk away from the divisive tenets by allowing people to share their stories, or watch the video testimonies and read the posts of others who have walked away."
