K-12: Walk Away

By Bruce Deitrick Price:

When Brandon Straka founded the WalkAway movement in May, hardly anyone imagined that several hundred thousand longtime Democrats could turn against the party of their family and friends. Although it’s a big, difficult decision, many Walkaways made videos aggressively explaining their decisions. They often conclude: “I’ll never vote Democrat the rest of my life.”

What made these people walk away with such passion? Certainly, Trump’s success and charisma explain a lot. The “lying media” are also a major factor. One woman attended a crowded Trump rally. When she reached home a half-hour later, CNN was showing a half-empty stadium where she had been standing. She knew that the place had been jammed. At that moment, she walked away from CNN.

Perhaps the most important factor is that leaders on the left, for many decades, became increasingly socialist/communist in their perspectives. The rank and file are more sophisticated now and realize that their party bosses walked away from them long ago.

So here’s the picture that Straka has brought into focus. Namely, lots of people are mad as hell and determined not to take it anymore.

We need this exact same spirit in K-12. You’re mad as hell and refuse to continue the same destructive relationship. You know what the schools are doing to children: keeping them ignorant and illiterate. You hate this. You don’t want it being done in your name. Or with your taxes.

So walk away.
