Brandon Straka, a successful, high profile media personality and activist responsible for starting a phenomenal political movement in favor of voters leaving the Democrat party, was arrested by the FBI on Monday for his involvement in events around the January 6th march to the US Capitol.
Straka was ordered released from custody Tuesday pending his preliminary hearing and is facing federal charges of:
Impeding a law enforcement officer during civil disorder.
Knowingly entering and remaining on restricted grounds without lawful authority and/or engaging in disorderly conduct within proximity to a restricted building to impede official functions.
Engaging in disorderly conduct with the intent to disturb a hearing before Congress.
The news of Straka’s arrest went viral quickly, with many people commenting on what they feel is the unfair focus upon Conservatives for an event that appears to be confusing, when the left has caused Millions of dollars of damage on riots for years, without apparent consequences.
So to many Straka’ss arrests seemed very unjust.
The arrest of Brandon Straka feels a ton like the state going after its political enemies. https://t.co/zs133BFKeu

“The Walkaway movement attracted tens of thousands of people, making Straka a target of the Marxist left,” is how Cassandra Fairbanks of the Gateway Pundit described Straka.
Straka, the founder of the Walk Away movement, has a loyal following of activism supporters on the #WalkAway campaign, which started in May 2018. He encouraged people to share a personal video explaining their transformation from being a liberal to being a Conservative. The movement attracted video makers and video watchers, growing another movement called the #WalkWiths, a group of mentors and friends of people walking away. Together they all grew into a powerful community of activists and friends.
In 2018, before the Mid-Terms, many people were alarmed at the amount of anger and threats they were receiving for not supporting unpopular Democrats, and the Walk Away and Walk With movement offered a community and some comfort for people who needed friendship at the time.
David Harris Jr. is holding a Fundraiser to assist in defense funds for Straka and others.
“Patriot’s Legal Defense Fund
This is a critical time in American history. Some patriots are taking a stand, but the left’s tyrannical leadership is out to destroy the movement to hold on to our Republic. We need every true patriotic American citizen to help us fight these overreaching attempts to stop the cause. Help create a defense fund now!”

According to the legal documents, the FBI said that “Witness-1” was a relative of Straka to pointed investigators to a video Straka had posted to Twitter. After the video was deleted from Twitter, the relative let the agent know there was a copy of the video posted to YouTube.
