An Open Letter to Republicans Welcoming Those Who #WalkAway

Let me begin with, this movement isn’t about us.  Like you, I’m excited, and more optimistic by this than I’ve been in over a decade.  Our position in this is to do four things:

  • Welcome those who are newly coming to the Truth
  • Demonstrate by our actions the Truth
  • Protect those leaving the abuse of the left
  • Educate these new free thinkers

Brandon opened a new underground railroad, and we are the conductors.  Our job is to ensure their transition involves as little trauma as possible.

Unfortunately, we can’t remove all of it, but we can protect them, provide an example to them, and educate these newly freed people to the truth they are desperately searching for.

In return, we gain strength in our movement due to people realizing within their own free will that they don’t wish to ever again be subjugated intellectually.  We gain strength from this, and our nation gains strength.

We are to welcome those coming to the truth.

They are traumatized by the abusive actions of the left and its rigid orthodoxy.  Reading and watching their testimonials reminds me of an abused spouse fleeing their abuser.  These people have been brutalized by an ideology and mental prison system that resulted in their captivity and prayed on their fears.

The political left truly abused anyone not willing to adhere to their ideology.

They abuse us in the same de-humanizing way.

The difference is, we find it humorous as the blood libel they throw at us is ridicule at its base, and only demonstrates their own ignorance of the Truth.  Anyone who understands what Fascism believes knows it’s a form of extreme socialism, like its ideological cousin Communism … the extreme left.  And according to the left, the extreme right is found in Libertarianism and Constitutional governance.

We must demonstrate our actions to these new friends, brothers, and sisters with our actions.  Nothing speaks louder than that.  Remember, the Jewish Prophet Hosea stated,

“For I desire mercy and not sacrifice” (Hosea 6:6).

If you’re like me, you’ve been called a Nazi, fascist, homophobe, bigot, sexist, etc.  … to a point where you want to puke.   Also to the point where the visceral reaction of such baseless claims has long since lost its power.

All this blood libel does is remind you that the left can’t provide a counter to the facts you’ve presented.  The people here are not the enemy.  They have left the enemy camp in search of refuge.

These people leaving the left have been abused.

Abused for no greater crime than questioning the worldview they are presented with.

Like a woman escaping an abusive husband, we must protect them, strengthen them, and give them a place of refuge in the freedom we have enjoyed.  They are new to it and are most likely cautious and scared of this new world.

The difference between us and them is purely background and experiences.  If you are like me, and a lifelong conservative/libertarian, you’ve never known a time of intellectual servitude.  You’ve always been free.  You also have become strengthened to withstand the mindless slogans and idiotic attacks of the left.

These people have not reached that point yet, … but with our help, they will.  They are the hope of the Republic.

Finally, we must educate these people in the full breadth of their new found freedom.

We must show them by example.  Lead from the front.

As we all laughed at President Obama, when he claimed “lead from behind”, we all understand that no such state exists.  You either Lead from the front or follow from behind.

No other state exists in nature.

Answer their questions, show them the true limitlessness of their new freedom based on actual facts (including the unpleasant ones).

And embrace them as your new brothers and sisters, as that is exactly what they are.

Guest Post: I Just Need to Get This Off My Chest

I need to get this off my chest…

…I fear what lies ahead.

In all honesty, I’m desperately hoping I’m not the only person who is afraid.  I need validation for the sense of despair I have for the future of America.  The unfounded hysteria spewing forth from the left is worrisome.

When I hear and see the liberal media, celebrities, and people losing their collective minds over anything and everything our President does or says…I feel disgusted and anger from the pit of my stomach.  It literally makes me sick.  Not so much because I disagree with what their vision is for our country…but the fact that they are so closed minded and egotistical. They truly believe that it’s their way or the highway.  There is no compromise or hey let’s have on an open discussion to see what we all can agree on. Its only name-calling, ridicule, riots, protests, and violence.  Because that’s what peaceful, tolerant, anti-war, inclusive and civilized individuals do, right?

I would love to believe that Americans truly have the same beautiful vision for the future of this amazing country we are so blessed to live in.  However, I am beginning to wonder if it’s just wishful thinking.

The world we are now living in seems foreign to me…

…almost like a nightmare.

Children are attacked, threatened and harassed because they are brave enough to stand up for their beliefs, politicians condone harassment and violence against American citizens because of who they voted for, Police officers are demonized, and criminals are victimized, disrespect towards our military is increasing, being a patriotic American is offensive and our freedom of speech and 2nd amendment rights are in imminent danger of being stripped away.

Sometimes I wonder if we are looking at a civil war in our future.

Is this what the left is hoping comes to pass?

Are they seeing just how far they can push us until we finally snap? Then they can say, see they are the crazy, violent ones, those evil, racist, Nazi, homophobic Conservatives.

It’s happened before.

When people feel like their way of life, their rights, their freedoms are being threatened what recourse do they have but defend it?  Wouldn’t you? Don’t they realize if America fails, not only will we suffer, but the rest of the world will as well?  We are always there to help others in need. Americans are truly the most compassionate and giving people on the planet, but if we can’t take care of ourselves how can we help anyone else?

If something drastic doesn’t change soon, I am afraid the America I have always known and loved will forever be lost. The very ideals and principles that so many men and women have fought and died for and still defend this very day seem to be fading away before my eyes.

So, I pray.

I pray that God will open eyes and hearts before it’s too late.  I pray that somewhere, someone will start a conversation…a simple conversation with people that are willing to listen to one another without judgment or arrogance.

I pray for forgiveness…because I don’t want to be angry

I want to be a part of the solution, not the problem.  I will hold tight to my faith and cling to hope.

There is always hope.

An Open Letter To Those Who Walked Away

An open letter to any who recently joined #WalkAway:

 

First, I’d like to address those who have walked away from the left.

 

I’d like to welcome all of you.

 

You have made a very big, and scary first step toward intellectual, and political freedom.

 

Some have recognized the right as not being what you were told by your left-wing abusers.  Some have embraced the Right, others are remaining unencumbered by not choosing a new side.  Both are acceptable choices.  I encourage all of you to test the facts before you.

 

Test them with the intent of finding their flaws.  Test your old beliefs in the same way.  Go where the facts (based on context, actual history, and your personal experiences with each side) lead you.  Keep your mind as open as the left claimed to be, and as you’re just learning we on the right actually are.

 

Almost as if by programming, I’ve seen many former Democrats apologizing to others frequently.    As your minds are exposed to the warmth from your newfound friends, please know; you have no reason to apologize to me for the venom of your former party.  We are overjoyed you are opening your mind to the diversity and welcome you home to the truth. Remember, this movement isn’t about me and people like me.  This movement is about you and how you will change the future of our nation.

 

As a Christian, I can assure you, you are an answer to prayer.

 

As you are going through Cognitive Dissonance, remember to embrace it, explore it, use it to grow.  Find the Truth and follow where it leads.  If you can find a single tiny flaw with a theory or idea, that theory or idea must be re-evaluated and adjusted to account for actual facts.  The scientific method you learned about in school as a child is a good guide.

 

Next, it’s okay to disagree.  On the Right, we do not expect, nor do we demand uniformity of thought.  We are a movement of free thinkers.

 

Freedom is everything.

 

If you get any five of us together and ask our opinion on a topic, you are guaranteed a minimum of seven different answers.

 

Disagreement should not lead to conflict.  It’s an opportunity to sharpen your skills, test your known facts for flaws, and expose yourself to other ideas.  This should be encouraged, as long as you can remain friends in the end.  If you can’t break bread together afterward, you did it wrong.

Third, real diversity is found in the diversity of thought.  What you find in pop culture is the diversity of ethnicity and gender, while demanding a uniformity of thought.

 

This is exactly what you were choking on as a member of the left.  The demand of uniformity of thought is then enforced with a cult-like discipline which many of you have experienced by people you thought were your friends for the mere crime of thinking for yourself and exposing yourself to other viewpoints.  Ethnicity and gender are irrelevant when compared to character, ethics, integrity, and independent thought.  The diversity of thought is real diversity.  Without it, you have nothing.

 

Fourth, ask those of us on the right questions.  Explore what we believe and why.  We won’t be offended.  We’ve naturally developed thick skin from dealing with the militant left.  Variation of ideas and thoughts don’t offend us.  To offend me requires a lot of effort, and unless you are abusing children or animals, it’s nearly impossible to accomplish.

 

I know this is hard to recognize considering from where you’ve come, but you are safe with us.  We can disagree, and it’s okay.  It’s encouraged.

 

We on the right are happy you escaped your captivity.

 

There are no victims here, only free people.

Another Powerful #WalkAway Testimonial As The Campaign Continues To Pick Up Steam

With every passing day, the #WalkAway Campaign grows stronger. Last Saturday was no exception when a striking young woman named Lynzee Domanico posted a powerful #WalkAway testimonial chronicling her battle with being a “Closeted” conservative in the gay community.

Lynzee begins by talking about her struggles growing up in a small conservative mountain town raised by Catholic parents and how she knew at an early age that she was gay.

Lynzee goes on to share her feelings about her first marriage, to a man, that ended in divorce and recalls how liberated she felt when she found the strength to come out as a gay woman. Lynzee said she could never have imagined how her newfound power would be immediately stripped away as now she had to live as a “closeted” conservative.

She ends her powerful testimony with the fear she felt with the thought of coming out as conservative to her gay friends, and how she thought it was time to #WalkAway.

Many on the left have suggested that the #WalkAaway Campaign is a movement conceived in the Kremlin and executed by Russian bots but with authenticity like this, it’s clear the #WalkAway Campaign will continue to make some liberals rethink their blind allegiance to the Democratic party.

Welcome home Lynzee!
