The #WalkAway "phenomenon"

This article by the Washington Post ought to dispel any notion that #WalkAway is in any ways a real phenomenon.

Nope…what we are witnessing is the big danger of the Internet age…#WalkAway is spreading entirely by bots and paid images from Shutterstock being spread by troll accounts.

Because no one critically examines anything that resonates with what they want to believe anymore.

So, a fake movement? What a surprise.

The tag went viral because of a lethal combination…Trolls, bots, Trump supporters wanting it to be true, and non-Trump supporters pointing out the trolls and bots.

Even I just inadvertently helped by using the hashtag in my title and post.

Good post. Thanks for sharing this. It is a wild time we are living in. And there are definitely people will to capitalize on the coupling of naivety and intellectual laziness of society, to further their own agenda. I was personally skeptical of this alleged movement, when the hard data shows voter registration favoring Democrats over Republicans by a fairly significant amount.

wasn’t that a week or 2 ago?

good job jay…no brownies for you

I realize she must be a Russian bot but…the disguise is incredible.

Yes it was, about a couple of days before this clown went viral with his fake story.

His 15 minutes are up.

for everyone you find to walk away i can find a george will who walked away from the GOP.
Polls show the dems have the advantage at the moment. The other thing you have is the laziness of young people. If they voted your policies would never get off the ground. Plus you are loosing women in droves…but good for you on finding one

Dude trying to make money selling merchandise and he used politics. Not a big deal except for some of our resident Trump supporters who fell for it foot, line, sinker and two feet of poll.


She accused Hillary Clinton of raping children and talked about the “body count” connected to her. Yeah, she is a true Democrat who just finally opened her eyes to the greatness of Trump.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! :rofl:

This was a great example of what a joke this supposed movement really is. Thanks for sharing this!

I don’t think you can? Let’s have a contest…I went first. Now you post an example of your “George Will”. Then I’ll do it again and let’s see if you’re right and let’s bet a pizza? Are you on or just flapping?:sunglasses:

This reminds me when Trump supporters became enormous Kanye West fans for like a week.


Don’t forget about Cardi B.

Thing you need to understand is SOME of these people saying they are part of the movement are actually in fact real people who actually believe it. That number however is a mere fraction of the total overall claimed movement.

~106,000k or so followers of the Twitter hashtag, less than maybe 1000 of those are actual real people, and of that number less than half of them are actual real people who are part of the LGBTQ group and are actually planning on switching political idology.

That is what all this social media craziness is about. People who know how to manipulate others based on emotion and made up stories. Heck even the leader himself made up a story about being denied service at a store despite the fact his story was NEVER independently verifed.

How is it any less a movement than the #metoo movement?
These things all started somewhere even Blacklives matter or Bluelives matter.

More people # to it then it will become an actual movement

The original man who started the walk away movement…your turn.
