'Grey's Anatomy' star Isaiah Washington opens up about decision to leave the Democratic party after Trump White House visit
"You got a lot of conservative or centric libertarian-minded people that really care about other people but they are terrified to come out of the closet and say anything that's not in line with the Democratic party," Washington explained, urging those in the Hollywood community to speak up.

On Fox Nation's latest episode of "Nuff Said," "Grey's Anatomy" star Isaiah Washington opened up about his decision to leave the Democratic Party, and the reaction he got from the Hollywood community after publicly declaring his support for the #WalkAway movement.
"Walking away is a sacrifice," Washington said. "There's a risk and there's a penalty for it but you have to walk away when it matters...and the reason I chose to walk away from the Democratic party...is that something doesn't' feel right."

Washington blamed the Democrats for "not doing enough" and pointed to their lack of action for the black community as an example.

Washington, who once played Dr. Preston Burke in the hit TV series, said he was never asked about his politics during his two-year career on the show, and that his political activism developed recently after he attended a celebration at the White House commemorating Trump's support of the First Step Act.
The bipartisan prison reform bill reduced sentences due to "earned good time," and "assists former prisoners in reacclimating into society upon release."

He also highlighted his organization "Artists and Athletes Alliance," which works to "assist artists and athletes in navigating the halls of government, as well as helping them understand the political process," as a long-time proponent of the First Step Act.
When asked about the reaction he received from Hollywood after announcing his decision to leave the Democratic party, Washington said he was surprised to learn that many felt the same way he did, but were too afraid of to voice their political opinions.

"You got a lot of conservative or centric libertarian-minded people that really care about other people but they are terrified to come out of the closet and say anything that's not in line with the Democratic party," Washington explained, urging those in the Hollywood community to speak up.

Another one joining the #walkaway that the snowflakes claim is a Russian hoax. 

He is finally "woke" to the true racist trying to keep him on the plantation.

It's been nearly a year since the launch of the #WalkAway social media campaign, and movement founder Brandon Straka said more former liberals are speaking out about their distaste for the Democratic establishment.
Among them is former 'Grey's Anatomy' star Isaiah Washington, who says he joined #WalkAway because Democrats are "a bit over-the-top, mean spirited and "a bit toxic."
"I'm not really sure where the animus is coming from," Washington told FOX Business' Stuart Varney on Wednesday. "Especially when you have someone like myself and Brandon, who are only trying to help people."

It's really interesting how the Democratic party that pointed to it's Anti-McCarthyism as one of it's core tenants has gone to the opposite extreme and embraced McCarhtyism as a foundational trait of the progressive movement.  It's  now openly Trying to destroy any and every person or business that dares to dissent from it's hive mind.
