Rapper Kanye West unveils "BLEXIT"apparel encouraging other blacks to leave the Democratic Party. It came the same day thousands marched in the nation's capital over the weekend as part of the #WalkAway movement.
Saturday's#WalkAway March drew upwards of 5,000 people who say they have fled the Democratic Party for various reasons.
“People are fed up with what's happening on the left,” organizer Brandon Straka told Fox& Friends over the weekend. “Whether their issue is the lies, the manipulation, the targeting of minority groups, the socialism, the communism, the focus on illegal immigrants over American citizens.”
Straka launched the #WalkAway Campaign back in May when the gay hairstylist posted a six-minute personal video that went viral.
“We had a huge second wave after the Kavanaugh hearings, and what was really interesting with that was these were the really die-hard loyalists, people in their 60s and 70s who have been Democrat their whole life who said this is enough the final straw for me, I've had enough and I'm walking away,” he said.
Straka says he's most proud of the number of blacks and Hispanics that have joined his #WalkAway movement.
“People are starting to see the way the liberal media and Democratic Party manipulate these groups with fear and intimidation,” he said. “People don't want to be scared. They don't want to be told constantly you're in danger, you're in danger, you can't succeed and the system is rigged against you.”
“People are starting to see that is not true because they are doing well and they want to walk away, they want to be self-empowered.”
