The reason why this is bullshit is that it was all over conservative social media before anyone else had even heard of it.

Consider how your own social media works and imagine a situation where any liberal you know crosses over to the other side without any of their contacts knowing about it.

Now let’s continue this discussion in the real world.

No, you dotard, I’m saying that if liberals were crossing over to the Modern Right, their liberal friends would have heard about it first.

As it is, absolutely nobody had heard of this “grassroots movement” until the Modern Right started telling everyone about it.

And then there’s the online data mentioned earlier. It looks like an operation to reduce turnout on the right, given that right wing social media bubbles is exclusively where you’ll find this meme.

I get that you’re blind to social cues, Po, but is this gullibility something you want to wave around?

Why can't people ever really fuck the fuck off? Like Men Go There Own Way (MGTOW) never go nowhere, it's just bitch, bitch, bitch.

Only the Rasta's (somewhat) ever truly renounced Babylon. Everyone else is just a leg-clinging poseur.

Man, I would love the stagey melodrama of someone giving me a sayonara song for being too much/not enough whatever.

People are afraid to come out to their own libtard friends and family because they know exactly what kind of reaction they'll get.

But then this movement started, and now it's given them the courage to do it. Strength in numbers and all that.

This was a perfectly plausible scenario when it happened with women in the #metoo movement. But now that it applies to people who think you and your kind are really kind of shitty and hypocritical, it's suddenly unimaginable.

Anyway, time will tell how big this movement is. Maybe it will fizzle out. Maybe it won't.

If it doesn't, you tards are in a SHITLOAD of trouble.

Had the great idea of checking into this thread every now and then with yet another #walkawayer.

As it happens, the first woman I look at was addressing both the bot question and why she didn't come out before (she was afraid to!).

She even has a video.

She actually does look Russian.

But if you watch the video, you learn that she's half Whitey and half Hispanic. And her mother, who is Hispanic, called her out on her whiteness. That was the last straw for her.

Imagine being a parent of a bi-racial kid and calling them out on half their race.

It probably means little more than not calling oneself a leftist any more. I stopped identifying as a leftist after 9/11, but that was the extent of the change.

Poor Brandon Straka!

A man spewing so much vitriol against the Democratic Party in that first video that we might have assumed to be a person as strong as his hatred, but he is absolutely shaking as he leaves a camera shop after the employees recognized him and refused to serve him. Can you even imagine how much that must have hurt his ego? A guy seeks fame with his anger, then complains when that same sought-after fame brings a little notoriety with it.

Son, the fact that you think certain melanic people (lets call them Africans and Mexicans and Indians) need help getting into Harvard shows to me that you think they are inferior in some way. Which is pretty much the textbook definition of racism.

No, it has nothing to do with that, you goddamned schmuck. 300 years of being treated as third-class citizens by people like you have left black people at financial disadvantage (red lining has left a legacy of less inter-generational wealth accumulation, etc.), which is worth compensating for.

Having a quick read of the first few pages of #walkaway, it seems to be exclusively the whackier end of the Trump spectrum (Q believers and the like) and straight Republican campaigners. With a good sprinkling of Russians. As Salon found:

It's worth pasting a fair slab of that article.
One of the present-day agitprop campaigns linked to Putin’s hacker squads is the “WalkAway” hashtag.

The Huffington Post reported over the weekend that this troll attack is a counter-measure against the potential “blue wave” coming this fall, with the WalkAway hashtag intended to simulate real-world Democrats who have apparently chosen to leave the party due to its (try not to laugh) alleged intolerance and lack of civility. It’s a ludicrous concept, given the galactically more egregious incivility of Trump and his Red Hats, extending back at least three years and including a deadly terrorist attack in Charlottesville, among myriad other examples.

In any case, this "hashtag has been connected to Russian bots," according to the HuffPost report:

It has ranked as the third or fourth most popular Kremlin-linked hashtag for days, according to bot tracking by the Hamilton 68 site run by the bipartisan Alliance for Securing Democracy, which keeps tabs on Russian activity on the American internet.

Arc Digital has made the same connection in the “strikingly similar” tweets pushing a “familiar narrative” of Democratic “bullying.” Arc traced the campaign from a Facebook group in May and subsequent tweets whose traffic suddenly began to explode late last month.

As I write this, Hamilton 68 has ranked #WalkAway as the most tweeted hashtag in the last 48 hours.

To be clear: This isn’t being circulated by earnest yet misguided voters who formerly identified as Democrats. This is clearly being circulated by trolls connected to the Russian influence operations. #WalkAway has obvious roots in the 2016 primaries, when Russian trolls attempted to turn liberal or left-wing voters against casting general election ballots for the eventual Democratic nominee (either Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton), thus diminishing Democratic turnout. The same goal applies here.

Oh and yes, the conservative entertainment complex is on board. Despite the reality that Russians are accosting voters with nefarious agitprop like this -- including other keywords like “rigged” and “witch hunt” -- HuffPost noted that Fox News is reporting this active measure as if it were an actual grassroots “movement.” It’s not.

The #WalkAway attack appears to be targeting disaffected registered Democrats who might be inclined to fall in line with an exodus from the party, a few months before a hugely important election. Sure, that’s a highly specific and pretty small demographic. But, as we’ve seen, modern elections tend to feature too-close-for-comfort margins, swung by relatively small groups of voters. The good news, of course, is the prominence of the hashtag doesn’t necessarily mean that real-life Democrats are suddenly exiting the party.
