Another YouTube video I found that I think tells a true story, from a young person who used to be "progressive-liberal."

This video was published on 11/18/18 by Dylan Roth:

I used to attend Evergreen State College and left just shortly after the infamous uprisings took place over pure ignorance and hatred. I then became very suspicious of the Radical Left, and now I am deciding to #walkaway from the Democratic Party and any form of tyrannical socialist group-think.

I was inspired to make this documentary, especially after seeing the growing consciousness arising from the #WalkAway movement. I am so delighted to share my story with y'all!

Love, Dylan



It's 9:47 minutes long.

I know it might be too long for some folks who prefer their information spoon-fed in small bite sizes, but for those who might be interested in why a young millennial Liberal turned away from both the Left and the Democratic Party (despite Trump) give it a watch.

I post it because I've seen much of how he characterizes Progressive-Leftists reflected in how some of our more strident Forum member's tend to post and respond.

(NO! I am not going to summarized for you, because I am simply presenting a first-person example of why some Millennials are really and truly "walking away" despite allegations it's another "Bot" lie.)

I will say that I quite agree with much of what he states in regard to his experience and observations.

Yeah, looks like that walkaway failed.
Maybe it's time to give up that astro-turf.

Random popup thread of a hashtag which has been widely proven as Russian propaganda.

Interesting...

Typical. Not interested enough in the subject to actually view it and then present an informed response...just interested in coming in to make a negative, uninformed statement.

Just more examples of what this young man left the Left for. :coffeepap:

Yes, I was thinking the same thing, about how often Russian propaganda tends to make it into your posts.

You are 100% correct, I have absolutely zero interest in what one random unknown person out of 300+ million in this country has to say (if we could even believe him in the first place). I guess the question then becomes how come you care so much about what this ONE person, who has absolutely no claim to fame and not even 7,000 views, has to say.

So, how about it? Why are you pushing Russian propaganda about one random person no one knows?

Strange, I haven't seen a single "factcheck" organ confirming this is Russian Propaganda. I have seen CNN using that "Hamilton68" site pushing that narrative, despite all the actual video evidence to the contrary.

Yet you come in to dismiss a video you admit you did not view...to what end? Derail a thread simply because you disagree with it despite not even reviewing the material presented?

Strangely, that is one of the points made by the young man concerning typical radical-left tactics in the video. Those who view it will realize your response is proof of his personal experience. :coffeepap:

Hey Cap't. Haven't you come to the realization that those on the left don't need facts or evidence to promulgate their presumed guilt based on their political ideology and agenda?

So weird that you would think people leaving your party = Russian propaganda.... And I thought "Trumpers being scared of migrants" was funny.

Also funny how you see 1 news article of #walkaway being run by Russian bots and you instantly dismiss the thousands of #walkaway's popping up candidly. I think this whole walk away thing is gonna become MUCH BIGGER before 2020.

Ahh yes. When the DNC propaganda the biased lame stream media parrot on a regular and continual basis doesn't match reality.

Oh when does that ever happen? :lamo

Besides, we just took back the House and survived one of the most brutal Senate maps ever, so if anything, Americans are walking towards the Democrats again. :)

To be fair, this was at best a misleading clickbait thread on your part, because I really thought it would be your walkaway story. WTF should we care about what this kid thinks? You wouldn't give David Hogg and all the kids who survived mass shootings the time of day. Claiming they have no experience and should shut up. They have way more political capital than some angry alt-right internet troll who has never gotten laid.

FYI: It is hyper-active anti-political videos like these that have led to mass shooting events.

I see the kid not embracing Trump, so much as walking away from the hate he had seen.
I did the same thing.
I am still a conservative Democrat, but am politically homeless right now.
When I managed the local Republican Headquarters during the mid-terms, many of my volunteers were also homeless conservative Democrats.

We stand for the national anthem, love the United States, and respect the flag.
Few current Democrats have this as an official stance.
...and even fewer have the balls to say so in public.
The party left us with its sharp left turn and hate of almost everything uniquely American.

Not burning the flag would be a good start.
Too many current Democrats are good with it.

You should really change your political affiliation on here.

You seem to concentrate all of your energy on fighting left-wing ideals, while giving conservatism and Trumpism a pass at every turn. It's bad enough that you never stand-up for libertarian principles when Trump and the RNC rear their authoritarian desires openly, but now you're flat out using their talking points and slogans, and I think you should be transparent about leaning conservative.

If you can't see how much more dangerous the current far-right is to American ideals of secular democracy that you say you care about, you're not a "libertarian-left" at all.

This is why conservatism is becoming the new political correctness.

Having the right to peacefully burn the flag or kneel during our national anthem, are the very rights that make our country unique. If you bully people into expressing themselves the way YOU want to express yourself, then those rights become meaningless, and pretty soon they and other rights will be taken away permanently.

And you're obviously a Republican, since you campaign for them, so pretend to be a centrist.

I know who I am and what I feel.
You do not.
This is a fact.

I have already had labels put on me from amateur psychologists before.
Based merely on a few posts.
Are you now stepping into the ring?

Will I be a Nazi racist next week?
Oooppps, too late.
That already happened a few weeks ago.

I AM a politically homeless conservative Democrat.
Deal with this truth in any way you can.

You're a conservative, it's right out there for everyone to see for themselves.

It's fine, but you should own it.

I have already said it several times.
What part of CONSERVATIVE Democrat do you not get?
I said it TWICE in post number 14.
You need better reading interpretation skills.
You are 100% WRONG if you think I denied being a conservative.
I am.
...a CONSERVATIVE Democrat.
...a politically homeless CONSERVATIVE Democrat.

Go back and REread my post number 14. You missed a few things.
Your political bias kept you from reading what was actually written.
That is another fact.

Your post i quoted PROVES you did not comprehend me saying i was a CONSERVATIVE Democrat in post 14.
Even though i said it twice.
This is what happens when you only see what you want to see instead of what is actually written.
YOUR mistake, not mine.

Yeah, but you're not a Democrat in any way from what I've seen.

If you insist you are, where do you agree with the Democratic platform?

#Walkaway = Russian propaganda. :coffeepap

Now the more pressing question: did Russian intel masterminds turn the #walkaway founder into a gay hair dresser??

Meet Brandon Straka, a gay former liberal encouraging others to #WalkAway from Democrats

Besides, we just took back the House and survived one of the most brutal Senate maps ever, so if anything, Americans are walking towards the Democrats again. :)

Have they found George Soros' Hawaiian birth certificate yet? You really must nominate him for a 2020 run, with his employee HRC as Vice President.

If I'd seen my university's dean held hostage by transgender students & SJWs, and told they wouldn't let him use the restroom on his own, I'd walk away too.
