The media is ignoring the continuing mass exodus from the Democrat party, which leaves it to the Independent Media to share their stories, and their reasons for running hard and fast from the party that has been taken over by radical liberal socialists.
The media doesn't want people to realize how big this exodus has become because others may hear their stories and find they agree with those walking away.†
BRIEF BACKGROUND - THE BEGINNING
Politics became much more fun to write about and to read about during the 2016 campaign for President, where the "Deplorables," the nickname Hillary Clinton dubbed Trump supporters, ignored the establishment Republicans along with the liberal media and the so-called "conservative" NeverTrumpers, and brought Donald Trump from absolutely zero chance of winning the Republican primaries to becoming the GOP nominee, then being elected the President of the United States of America.
The interesting thing is that while Republican voters, whether Trump supporters or just conservatives willing to vote for him to prevent Hillary Clinton from being elected, may have bucked the system, took control, taught the Republican establishment and the liberal media a lesson in trying to force a candidate down our throats and/or lecture us on what is best for us, it was after the election that we saw "sane" Democrats start a mass exodus from the Democrat party.
People that discovered, after voting for Clinton, that they had been lied to by the media. People that discovered everything they had been told about Trump supporters being "deplorable," and racists homophobes... was all lies.†
When the #WalkAway campaign began around the middle of 2018, by a gay New York hairdresser, Brandon Straka, seen above, the liberal establishment media had no idea how big the movement would become.
At first the media just ignored the #WalkAway movement. Then when the #WalkAway hashtag started trending, growing, with thousands upon thousands of former Democrats explaining why they left the democrat party, the media, trying to protect their party, claimed those people were really "Russian bots!"
So, #WalkAway participants started giving their testimonials via video, showing they were not Russian, nor bots, and the movement grew from thousands to tens of thousands, and just kept growing, while the media continues to try to hide it.

THE EXODUS CONTINUES AS THE #WALKAWAY MOVEMENT GROWS
Over at Medium we see yet another recent #WalkAway story from February 11, 2020, by†Karlyn Borysenko, an organizational psychologist and mindfulness expert, and a 20 year Democrat, explaining what she experienced at Trumpís recent rally in New Hampshire, finding out that everything she had been fed by the media and liberals across the board.... was all lies.†
After detailing how she was disturbed at how online liberal social justice warrior mobs attacked anyone that was not "lockstep in their ideology," she explained what gave her a "wake up call."
I started paying attention after one man who was attacked got mobbed so badly that he had a nervous breakdown and was admitted to the hospital on suicide watch. There was something that was not right (well, so many things really) and it witnessing the vitriol coming from those who I had aligned myself with politically was a massive wake up call.
You see, I was one of those Democrats who considered anyone who voted for Trump a racist. I thought they were horrible (yes, even deplorable) and had worked very hard to eliminate their voices from my spaces by unfriending or blocking people who spoke about their support of him, however minor their comments. I watched a lot of MSNBC, was convinced that everything he had done was horrible, that he hated anyone that wasnít a straight, white man, and that he had no redeeming qualities.
But when I witnessed the amount of hate coming from the left in this small, niche knitting community, I started to question everything. I started making a proactive effort to break my echo chamber by listening to voices I thought I would disagree with. I wanted to understand their perspective, believing it would confirm that they were filled with hate for anyone that wasnít like them.
You can read the entire piece at this archive.is link since Medium only allows limited free articles, but long story short, she re-registered as an Independent after the rally, and says "Democrats have an a**-kicking coming to them in November." †
A key quote helps explain why this #WalkAway exodus is still growing:
As I left the rally (walking by thousands of people who were watching it on a giant monitor outside of the arena because they couldnít get in), I knew that there was no way Trump was going to lose in November. Absolutely no way. I truly believe that it doesnít matter who the Democrats nominate: Trump is going to trounce them. If you donít believe me, attend one of his rallies and see for yourself. Donít worry, they really wonít hurt you.
No one wants to be on a team that loses, and many will bail from a sinking ship, by either not voting at all or voting for the person they know will win, but there are a number of other aspects to look at.
As is explained by many testimonials for the #WalkAway campaign, "sane" Democrats do not appreciated being "manipulated" by the media and once they discover how badly they have been manipulated, discovers by doing their own research why they need to walk away and the lies they have been fed.
Democrats are now expressing "angst" with the rise of a socialist candidate, Bernie Sanders, that may just win the Democrat nomination, despite the DNC, Dem politicians and liberal media trying to destroy him as they tried to do to Trump in 2016.†
Rock meets hard place with Sanders because should the DNC, media (same difference), and Democrat leaders rig the primaries against him as they did in 2016, his supporters will stay home or vote trump. Should socialist voters overcome the opposition from the DNC, media, and Democrat leaders, moderate Democrats will run as fast and as far as they can from the entire party.
RADICAL LIBERALS DRIVING PEOPLE AWAY
Radical liberals recently terrorized Straka and a number of guests, along with his group that were holding an LGBT #WalkAway event, screaming at the top of their lungs, preventing them from holding their event, with some guest speakers†feeling so endangered they were scared to stick around.†
I guess liberals are only supportive of LGBT community members if they agree with the increasingly radical liberal agenda, otherwise, they treat them as if they aren't even human.
Below Straka explains what happened and why, as provides video of the radical protesters.†
Those are just the newest examples of how radical liberals are driving moderate Democrats away.
The media thinks that by collectively ignoring the mass exodus from the Democrat party, it will just go away, but it won't.
Every voter that leaves, every moderate that thinks the party has become to radical, every Sanders supporter that thinks Bernie was cheated again if he doesn't get the nomination, and every Democrat voter that refuses to vote for him if he does manage to overcome Democrat leadership and obtain the nomination, are all voters that with either vote for President Trump, refuse to vote at all, or will write in a candidate, but either way, it takes votes away from whoever is the democrat nominee.
I have been hesitant to believe that the 2020 election will be a "Trump landslide," because getting cocky loses elections, just ask Clinton. On the other hand, I am optimistic that we may be able to stave off dying by socialism for another four years.
