There is an interesting movement that is generating attention. A gay hairdresser from New York made a video starting the #WalkAway campaign:
At first I thought this was a joke probably started by one guy who wanted attention. Then I saw reports that his video was allegedly seen by 5 million people. Hmm. His reason for leaving the Democratic party is:
“I reject a system which allows an ambitious, misinformed and dogmatic mob to suppress free speech, create false narratives, and apathetically steam roll over the truth.”
I watched him being interviewed by Tucker Carlson and he explained how he came to make this decision. He simply went back and watched the video tapes of what Donald Trump actually said and he was stunned at how badly they had been distorted and misrepresented.
This is a reminder that the MSM often ignores the big story in front of their nose in their lust to say something negative about Donald Trump. Recently the focus has been totally on people allegedly outraged by Trump’s immigration policy. What the media missed is that fact that about 48 million people will be traveling over the 4th of July weekend. The vast majority of them will celebrate our country and our independence. That is the mass demonstration that actually counts.
This reminds me of my flight to Vietnam for my last combat tour. I had already served two tours, I knew what to expect, and I was far from enthusiastic. I looked around that plane and I saw a lot of guys just like me. We didn’t want to be there. We didn’t want to do this. We knew the risk that was involved. We knew the sacrifices that would be required.
We also knew that we were being mocked by dugged up hippies who had no clue regarding what was at stake. Then I realized something important. While the media was focused on all those protestors, the most important demonstration was being made by the men who willingly got on that plane. As for those protestors, they couldn’t even spell courage.
If honest liberals really do some research, the truth is easy to find. If more of them find the moral courage to walk away from those filled only with anger, false promises and deceit this will truly be Independence Day.
Happy 4th of July
