WalkAway founder Brandon Straka’s political opinions were once wrapped up entirely in his sexual identity. But after a profound healing experience at an AA meeting, his resentment for heterosexual and conservative people melted away. With a clear mind and open heart, he was soon awakened to the narrative of hate and division that he had bought into. Now free to finally think for himself and honestly investigate the truth, his world turned upside down.

That was a great story, it really was but can we talk about that chair for a moment. For the love of God were did they get that from it's freaking huge. Did the Andre the Giant estate have a yard sale. Thanks folks, have a great day.

My husband's son is gay. We told him because we are Christian Conservatives does not mean we share all their beliefs. How can God be against Love. I think we have come a long way over the last decade.

Love this man and he changed my life also. I’m a gay man living in Canada and for my support in Donald Trump, I’ve lost a lot of people in my life, I’ve never felt so alone. It’s ridiculous how many people, especially in Canada are programmed to believe and think a certain way, complete brainwashing is a Liberal agenda.

I'm sorry Brandon. You're cute and girls like me are sad you're off the straight market. Your #WalkAway campaign helped me in my journey towards conservativism. I never registered as a Democrat because I just became a citizen in 2017, but I guess I was a Democrat at heart, foolish to believe that Democrats were pro Hispanic.... Oh but I was so wrong.

You have given so many people the ability to find their voice and to think for themselves. You have singlehandedly, changed America’s landscape. You are an inspiration. I love your story. It is so telling how the conservatives embraced you and your liberal gay friends shunned you. But, their loss, our gain!!

I don't believe anybody needs to apologize to you. But the journey was real. You need to love and respect yourself. You shouldn't have to remind anyone how much you should be appreciated. Just do it. Things always change around you. Don't force it. Let it grow and the real will present itself

The key phrase here was" I did research". The average democrat does not research. If cnn or the NYTimes or npr says something....they naively believe it. And thats it. And cnn, NYTimes and npr know this. And revel in it. And depend on it. When you start doubting them....you start your first steps toward freedom and independent thought. And from there....the skies the limit!!!!🌅

“White straight men” cannot save liberty. It must be saved by gay men, minority categories, gay women, transgender people. I’m very pleased to watch the liberty tree get watered by a diverse and proud group of fellow citizens that put individual liberty above all and work towards preserving and expanding these values so all people can be liberated and free. Great job Brandon. You’re a hero in my book

Sometimes I wonder what Brandon thinks of gay people who have traditional views on marriage??? 🤷‍♂️ Nevertheless, I do find more openness and commonality among gay conservatives that I do with those on the Left. More diversity of thought...

One thing I appreciate about him, is that he is ok if people don't agree with the lifestyle he chooses to live, and not all republican, conservatives have to agree on everything. It is about freedom from an oppressive government.

Hearing this story one should ask himself/herself HOW COME for so many years he/she thinks that the Media never lies. We must teach our kids not to rely so much on the written word or the visual in the News but learn how to sift and sort and check data, and how to follow their guts and not the society's opinions.

I was once an Anti-Trumper, I even made videos against Trump and his supporters in the past. But as of 2020, I support Trump and I have a positive view of Trump supporters. There's a huge laundry list of reasons why I went from being an anti-Trumper to a Trump supporter. The lies that were spread by Democrats, Leftists and the mainstream media was enough to push me towards becoming a Trump supporter.

I disagree with him about homosexuality, but besides that, he's a great man.
Theo Skeptomai
Theo Skeptomai Сарын өмнө
@Every DeadMeme Thanks for you honest and articulate elaboration. May I ask, are you suggesting that homosexuality is a chosen proclivity ‐ that an individual has some control over such sexual preference?
Every DeadMeme
Every DeadMeme Сарын өмнө
@Theo Skeptomai Sure. Straka seems to be more of a libertarian, while I'm more of a social conservative. I'm also a devout Catholic. In this video, Straka's statement seem to illustrate that "sexual preference" is an inherent, immutable characteristic, and Straka argues that society's legitimizing of homosexuality is a "very good thing." Personally, I believe that homosexuality is not immutable and that people are not "born that way." I also think that society should have never legitimized homosexuality to begin with. I'm glad it was decriminalized, because I don't think the government has the right to do anything about that kind of thing (just like adultery), but I am of the belief that homosexuality is a sin. However, homosexuality has been treated as comparable to race, and now we've ingrained terms like "sexual preference" and "sexual orientation." I have no hatred in my heart for homosexuals: they are human beings worthy of respect and dignity, and we are all sinners. But as a Christian, while loving the sinner, I hate the sin. I think homosexuality is wrong.
Theo Skeptomai

Love this consistent search for truth! Do we have any idea what the expected numbers are for #walkaway? It would seem to me that Trump has preserved his base and all that remains are Democrat defectors. What impact will this have on the election? Are those numbers so great that any outcome other than a Trump second term would be suspect?

I appreciate your movement so much. After 40 years being the only conservative in my Irish Catholic family I hope to one day get up the nerve to state you with my five sisters. You, Candace Owen and Dave Rubin give me hope. I just wish my sisters could accept me for me and not always color their feelings with my political and religious views. My own twin sister will not be friends with me on Facebook because Im too religious, like have a blessed day kind of stuff. FB is not the place to preach or get political in my view. It should be a friendly spot to connect. Thank you for your work

Love his story and the fact that he acknowledges as we all should this sense of entitlement that we believe we all have, entitlement ends when gratitude begins! We are all imperfect sinful humans and no one has the right to make judgements upon ourselves and we should always be striving to get better, to be better and to pursue that relationship that matter the most and is the one with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit who lives within us! The moment we do that, changes happen like this handsome gentleman right here, not only your political views change but so does your ideology!!

Hate to be a Debbie downer, but I did not expect this channel to promote immorality. It's not ok to apologize to someome because they chose to live a life of perversion. I'm glad he woke up and is now leaning towards the right and he seems like a good person, but I cannot accept his lifestyle and its disappointing to see this channel encouraging it.

Chilling... I heard the video that day, or the day after, but maybe that day, May 26 or 27, 2018. I knew he was going to save America. I transcribed the whole Manifesto and wrote an article and published it on LinkedIn to share it and found the MSM, nobody else had treasure that was obviously going viral. How evil to its core -- is this Left? And how FAR Brandon has come in two short years. God Bless you, Brandon Straka.
