Walkaway Campaign founder Brandon Straka was arrested for protesting the stolen 2020 Election on Jan 6, 2021 in Washington DC. He was sentenced in January. He recently shared about his nightmare experience with Steve Malzberg.
Brandan Straka received his sentencing disorderly conduct near the Capitol on Jan 6 . CNN was happy to report:
Brandon Straka, a self-described “former liberal” who founded the #WalkAway campaign to encourage people to leave the Democratic Party, admitted to recording himself telling the mob to “go go go” as they reached the Capitol and telling rioters who were wrestling a shield away from a US Capitol Police officer to “take it, take it.”
He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct on Capitol in October. Straka will have to pay a $5,000 fine, the maximum fine allowed, and an additional $500 for the damage done to the Capitol building by the mob.
Straka had a chance to discuss the nightmare the DOJ put him through this weekend on Steve Malzberg’s ‘Eat the Press’.
During the interview, Straka shared his total disappointment with the conservative media in their reporting of Jan 6. At the 4:05 mark in the video below Malzberg shares: “Okay, fair enough. Now, quickly, you say the conservative media has failed. With telling your story? Or in a greater context?”
Anybody’s story. I attended a support group a couple of days ago for families whose lives have been torn apart. There are children who have not seen their parents in over a year. One man, five people from his family were rounded up and taken away, his children and his spouse he hasn’t seen them in over a year. These stories haven’t been told while the conservative media is fixating on things like “Who is Ray Epps?”, and “Did the FBI set up January 6th?”.
There are people like myself who were charged with nonviolent misdemeanor charges, our lives are being torn apart, and we are being put on terror watch lists and nobody is interested in telling this story. I put out a press release weeks ago to hundreds of conservative outlets, and about five people contacted me telling me that they were interested in this story. It’s a disgrace.
At the 5:05 mark, Straka talks about the preparations being made for the State Of The Union with the fence going back up around the US Capitol and National Guard being called in. Straka mentions the double standard for BLM, Antifa riots and protests versus those of the right.
Straka concludes that based on what has happened to him, “WE ARE ALREADY CANADA” (Ottawa crackdown on protesters.)
This is a great interview. Please take a moment to watch.
