You can’t fool all of the people all of the time. Viral ‘Walk Away’ Videos Highlight Growing Movement of Democrats Leaving the Party. And just when I was getting ready to ditch Twitter.
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.”
Once upon a time, I voted for Bill Clinton. Gave (relatively) large amounts of money to NPR, and Emily’s list. But after 8 years of William Jefferson Clinton, like James Woods (Who started it all on June 25), I was done. Though I got to the far side of the political spectrum faster than he did. I probably started sooner. I noticed that the Dems and NPR et al really didn’t want me to be able to defend myself. They were rabid about it.
Anyway, I haven’t watched the videos – too many other things in the queue right now. But the hashtag has been fairly amusing. (Though I started this post last night, and haven’t revisited the hashtag this morning.)
