Yesterday we wrote about the sentencing of Brandon Straka, a 45-yr-old, gay, former Democrat hairstylist turned conservative activist and #WalkAway founder. Straka did more to convert former Democrats to America First conservatives than any single individual in America, making him one of the top targets of the Left.
Trump-appointed U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich sentenced the popular conservative activist to 3 years probation and a $5,000 fine for his role in the January 6th Capitol incident. In her remarks to Straka, Judge Friedrich told Straka “Election challenges are fought in the courts, not by storming the Capitol,” adding that she finds it “deeply disturbing” that the WalkAway founder used his social media influence to encourage and defend the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol.
In other words, be careful what you say on social media because Big Brother is ALWAYS watching…
Courthouse News reports – In the case of Straka, it was noted that his personal Twitter account has nearly 500,000 followers. Using his “significant public profile,” Straka encouraged others to storm the Capitol, to take a protective shield from a police officer, and to “hold the line” even after he departed the Capitol grounds, a prosecutor said in a court filing.
“Even if he didn’t personally engage in violence or property destruction during the riot, Straka encouraged and celebrated the violence of that day,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Brittany Reed wrote.
Straka told the judge that he and his social media followers don’t condone violence.
“It’s not who they are, and it’s not who I am, which is why they love our movement,” he said. “My relationship with my fans and followers is not just about politics. It’s about love.”
This evening, after 24 hour attacks on Straka from both the left and right, the #WalkAway founder released a statement explaining that he was not working with the feds and that he was not giving up his support for the MAGA movement and that he has no knowledge of any “plot, plan or scheme” to commit violence on January 6, so therefore, he could not have shared any information with the feds.
Straka also explained that he’ll be leaving all censored social media platforms and moving to GETTR and Rumble. He will also be releasing a short film called, “The American Prisoner.”
In other words, he’s not allowing the left, the leftist media, or a corrupt judicial system to silence him and he’s not allowing the lying media to define what happened that day.
