Surely you've heard of the #WalkAway movement?

As of this posting.
Even in the face of dealing with the evil of North Korea and the Ayatollahs of Iran, the left is willing to tolerate ending Trump's efforts in these matters to spite him. The left would rather have murderous, threatening dictators and Obama rather than Trump or any - any - Republican. If we dare think President Trump's absence would bring civility back, then we are too naive to possess a Republic such as this. TD

Viral ‘Walk Away’ Videos Highlight Growing Movement of Democrats Leaving the Party  . . . "Meet Brandon Straka, the unlikely liberator and new faceof 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." . . .
When actor James Woods tweeted out the hashtag “#WalkAway” in late June, even the alt-right missed the enormity of what lay beneath it. The Democratic Party had, in fact, struck an iceberg.
Some 5 million people on Facebook and YouTube have seen the video by now. A very handsome gay man, who you just assume is about to scold you on progressive talking points, instead says this:
“Once upon a time, I was a liberal. Well, to be honest, less than a year ago, I was still a liberal.
“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.”
The #Walkaway Facebook page

Why I joined #WalkAway  "I recently joined the #WalkAway Facebook group and was moved reading a number of posts from former lifelong Democrats by members of just about every minority group imaginable (LGBT, black, Latino, Jewish, Muslim, etc.).  They are done with the Democratic Party, figuratively walking away from it.  They have finally woken up to the fact that the party has veered too far left and suffers from a bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. " . . .
" . . . A couple of years later, many delegates at the national convention booed when G-d and Israel were mentioned.  I will never vote for a Democrat in a national race again. "   Also here.

PJ Media: #WalkAway Campaign Urges Fed-Up Democrats to Leave the Party
. . . "He said the reason he was so devastated was because he believed all of the media lies about Trump being a "racist, bigot, sexist, homophobe, sexual predator.""He said his evolution away from the lies began when he saw a video that exposed the lie that Trump had made fun of a reporter's disability."It's a compilation of footage going back to like the nineties," Straka told Harris. "It's him doing that exact same voice, and that exact same gesture numerous times when he's talking about numerous people in numerous situations," he explained." . . .

Breitbart claims the movement "goes viral"  "The #Walkaway movement that began with a popular Facebook video featuring a gay hairdresser in New York City explaining why he was leaving the Democratic Party has quickly morphed into a major force on social media and beyond. ' . . .
"The movement has been especially successful because its spokespersons have not been the sort typically associated with conservativism. Young and old, black and white, men and women, gay and straight—the campaign seems to elude stereotypes and pigeonholing.
"The popular young conservative commentator C.J. Pearson, for instance, has given the movement a significant push by highlighting the Democratic Party’s racist past. “The Democratic Party is the party of slavery. The party of Jim Crow. The party of segregation. The party of the KKK,” Pearson tweeted Saturday.“  " 'Democrats walked away from black folks long ago. Now, it’s our time to #WalkAway,” he added." . . .
