Getting Democrats to walk away

The Walk Away movement by Democrats who now support President Trump was led by Candace Owens and Kanye West. The movement is part of the plan to counter the Marxist approach of Democrats to divide people by race, sex, sex preference, and education in order to conquer America.

Republicans have tried going Democratic lite on social issues in a pathetic attempt to woo these demographic groups.

President Trump's plan is purely economic. In the face of overwrought Democratic Party emotionalism, he has been practical.

Consider homosexuality. His approach -- and that of Vice President Pence -- is rock-bed Christianity; hate the sin, love the sinner.

"While the White House has been repeatedly attacked by liberal LGBT groups despite President Trump’s campaign pledge for equality and his appointment of an openly gay U.S. ambassador, it has built a strong relationship with a Republican group once banned from party events," the Washington Examiner reported.

"And Log Cabin Republicans, the conservative LGBT lobby, hasn’t just weighed in on issues of sexual orientation and civil rights, it has also been asked to suggest candidates for top jobs, including federal courts, for the first time."

President Trump appointed Richard Grenell as ambassador to Germany not because he is gay but because he is good and very experienced. Trump needed a trustworthy guy in Berlin during trade negotiations, as well as pushing allies to keep their promises to NATO.

As for his outreach to African-Americans, Trump in August 2016 gave a series of speeches that were brilliant in their message and venues.

"Look at how much African-American communities have suffered under Democratic Control. To those hurting, I say: what do you have to lose by trying something new?" Donald John Trump told a rally.

In Dimondale, Michigan. Population 1,243. 93% white.

He made similar speeches in other largely white, rural places before finally going to a black church in Detroit.

The press laughed. They said he was wasting his time making his black speeches to white audiences.

I figured it out, writing, "First, we are still in the dawn of the general election campaign. Trump is trying to stretch and widen the battlefield by adding Michigan and Wisconsin to Hillary's list of woes.

"Second, Trump is training his troops. To counter the rote trope of racism used against any Republican candidate, Trump is showing his followers how they must frame the issue as a failure of Democratic Party policy.

"Third, Trump is showing black voters that he is not dropping his G's when he speaks to them. No, no, no, when he was in Dimondale, he said the same thing."

It is called credibility.

President Trump worked damned hard to get it.

The media worked harder to lose theirs.

  1. Don: Have you read some at #walkaway or followed Candace Owens' efforts? The walkaway movement is beyond "black", far more glorious. Candace' work with Charlie Kirk at TPUSA is beyond black, also far more glorious.

    2. Candace herself is glorious, and her arguments are giant-killers!

      Of course she's charming and witty, and her opponents are at best half-witty, so she does have a natural advantage. She's like our wonderful POTUS: she doesn't back down and doesn't ever admit defeat!

  2. The Democrats see exploitable minorities.

    Donald Trump sees people.

    1. Spot on. I lived in two inner cities, which is why I #walkedaway quite a while ago. When you see the real result of generational welfare (aka Democrats' long term vote buying) you realize just how despicable Democrat political leaders are. If you want to actually help Black Americans, support President Trump and vote Republican.

  3. My parents were missionaries. They acted the same in Africa as they did in the USA. People noticed and it earned them respect that the ones we would now call cultural larpers did not. I sensed this when I was a kid, and after I grew up, after years of no one saying anything about this, I read a book called Nervous Conditions by Tsitsi Dagarembga in which she confirmed my suspicion. Behind the backs of missionaries who role play they get no respect.

    I think of this every time I see some Democrat dancing in an African-American church, and sit there wondering what their version of rice Christians must be thinking of them.

    1. Interesting story about John Brown.

      For a time he ran a farm in upstate NY for runaway slaves. When the Abolitionists who owned the place came up to see how things were going, they saw him working in the fields with the black people, eating with them, calling them Mr This and Mrs That.

      And they couldn't get over the fact he was treating them like they were real people.

      Apparently, Limousine Liberals never change.

  4. Trump is a marketer. He gets it.

    You always play straight with people.

  5. One correction: The #WalkAway movement was officially started by Brandon Straka, who bought the website and launched a powerful video. This is the official organizer. He is a gay man, an actor, and was a hair dresser before becoming an activist. He is going on a very public journey of discovery since his video.

    I am a follower and a supporter, as I think he is doing amazing work...in addition to being one of the bravest people in the country.

    The movement, in part, is inspired by former Democrats sharing videos on why they left...because of the hate.

    The Democratic Party is busy creating fake photos and memes, then having their stooges in entertainment mock those images. #WinnningHears&Minds

    This is an important distinction, because Straka deserves the credit here.

  6. I'm all three races. Scots-Irish-Swiss,Native American (Cherokee/Shawnee) and Barbadian.
    All my life especially as the racialist movement bubbled in the Democrat party like an overfilled septic tank .Libs have tried to place me in a pigeonhole.I grew up in a
    small NE Oregon community My Pop was a real
    working Cowboy Horse Wrangler- contractor for the US Calvary. Pop looked Hispanic with the Native and Scots-Irish blood. We had
    a Chapter of the Democrat Business men's association-the KKK here .Harassed my family
    because Grandma was an Indian for a long time she carried the family .45 and her Black powder 12ga. All of my Pop's side were Republicans. Pop when he couldn't cowboy any more got into the Hardware/sporting goods business. He always treated People as equals. His attitude-having roots in Appalachia and the Ozarks were-"You never know-you might be talking to a cousin."
    My Lefty Lib mother lived in Mortal fear that I might marry someone darker than me.
    No kidding. She freaked when Pop invited a black friend out to our place for barbecue.
    (she was terrified that the neighbors would see that.) Best ribs I have ever had-.
    This is why I admire PDJT's evenhanded treat people as people approach. Like my Pop, you
    never know...
    BTW it was my Mom's side that had the Barbadian woman-married to a Scots-Irish ship captain ancestor. I was greatly disappointed when I found out that she wasn't a Pirate Queen...

    2. Nice. While no where close to as varied as your roots, but one thing is the same. The liberals are the most prejudiced and closed minded.

      Delete
    3. Shucks, I'm only Scots-Irish-English & Welsh, so I'm hardly diverse at all; no pirate queen ancestors either.

      But I do have high cheekbones!

      So I breathed a sigh of relief when I found that's all one needs to get a high-paying job at Harvard!

    4. Colloquially, the people of Barbados are known as Bajans. Visited there twice, first in 1965 on my honeymoon, returned the following year in time to watch the British flag come down and the Trident rise in its place, accompanied by the tears of British tourists. Stayed at an old place called the Crane Beach Hotel, which no longer exists. It was located down the road from the luxe Sam Lord's Castle hotel and sat on a high cliff that overlooks the gorgeous Crane Beach on the Atlantic side of the island. The fine white beach sand was sprinkled with tiny multi-colored sea shells. My wife and I had brought an inflatable raft with us to use in the small surf. We shared it with the local kids who had a ball taking turns riding the waves. Woke up in the morning sunshine, rolled over and looked eye-to-eye with a gecko, saw that birds had flown in through the open bathroom window to shred the toilet paper, leaving pieces of it all over the bathroom floor. Those were mighty good times.

    5. Well GR.Gr. Grandma was shoved under the carpet by the relatives.
      She provided my thick almost "nappy" hair and partly responsible for my inability to sunburn. I.d love to see Barbados..(BTW my Ancestor was well into the steam era-no steam powered pirates, anyway..TG

  7. The walkaway movement looks to be Yuuuuge. It will be fantastic if even 20% of the groups democrats take for granted walk away in 2020. And upward from there.

  8. There is no Democrat Party any longer. There is only a mongrelized warped version of it left. A version that no intelligent, thinking person would want any part of, because it is not only self destructive, but it's basic premise is the demise of our Constitutional governance. The one thing that has always brought this country success, and has allowed the "common" man a platform on the same level as those of great wealth. No other system has ever sustained this same fete, certainly not socialism or communism. Do we want to commit political suicide by allowing the left to continue to have their way? Only an imbecile would say yes!

  10. Shame. The #Walk Away movement was created by Brandon Shaka. It began with this video: https://youtu.be/51UGcghHZsk

    1. OK, thanks for that correction. Powerful video!

      I, like many here, have not ever been a Democrat and I didn't know the origins of the WalkAway movement; it never applied to me as I had nothing to walk away from. I've never heard of Brandon Shaka until now.

      My only knowledge of it was the tweets by Candace Owens and Kanye West, and I'm glad that the movement is bringing so many former Dems back to sanity, so here's a big "Thank You!" to you & Brandon!
