Hundreds of Democrats filled the streets of Washington, D.C. this weekend, encouraging the “silent majority” to stand tall just weeks before the election.

All were part of the #WalkAway movement founded by former liberal Brandon Straka, who  urges Democrats to leave their party and join Republicans and President Trump to make a better America.

The #WalkAway movement, as Straka states, consists of people from various backgrounds coming together for one cause:

There’s so many lies and so much misinformation about who Trump supporters are, who the president is. We want people to see that we are every slice of America – gay, straight, transgender black, white, brown marching together, loving one another, loving this country, loving our president.”

WalkAway Democrats Encourage the Silent Majority To Become ‘Unsilent’

Straka appealed to other Democrats to “walk away.” “It’s time for the silent majority to become unsilent,” he said. “What we want is for common sense people, good-hearted, big-hearted, kind, loving, compassionate people to start speaking up.”

Straka told reporters that silence from the Right is allowing the Left to become more extreme.

Trump Campaign Supporting the Group

The D.C. Chapter of Black Lives Matter (BLM) complained that the WalkAway event was a “white supremacy” rally.

Which will come as a surprise to the many minority speakers who spoke at the event.

Christopher Anderson, a candidate for Baltimore City Council who attended the rally, tweeted, “For too long, our voices were silenced by incompetent and indifferent politicians. We’ve [had enough] In Baltimore City, we are beyond ready for change!”

Earlier this month, the campaign for President Trump released an ad that quotes members of the “#WalkAway” movement. “His entire campaign works for all Americans,” one woman states. “That was a turning point for me.”

“One of the hardest things to do is to challenge your own beliefs,” another adds. “I want people to hear my story and know that you can actually go from being a Democratic socialist to a Trump supporter.”

The campaign has been focusing on the group knowing they view President Trump as the more free speech, anti-war candidate, something moderates can support over Joe Biden.
