Founder of the "Walk Away" movement is recognized in a store. The salesperson then flatly refuses to sell to him!


Brandon urges everyone to be better than the left and not be jackasses to the store as the other people in the store were completely professional.

Story and a complete interview with Brandon Straka below:


www.theepochtimes.com...




Straka, who’d just had a very busy week on national and international television interviews, had spent over an hour carefully selecting equipment he needed in various departments of the multi-tiered mega-store.

The final piece of equipment he needed was a microphone, so he was sent upstairs where he was recognized at the counter by a customer in front of him. “I saw you on Tucker! [the conservative “Tucker Carlson Tonight” show on Fox],” said the excited customer.

“You’re that Walk Away guy!” He wanted to have his picture taken with Straka, and Straka happily obliged. Then the customer left, and Straka told the store clerk what kind of microphone he wanted.

“He stared at me with this kind of dead-pan expression,” Straka told The Epoch Times. “And he said: Are you planning to use this equipment for alt-right purposes?’”

As Straka struggled to comprehend what was happening, the clerk, whom Straka asked not be named, said: “I’m sorry I just don’t feel comfortable selling to you. I can’t sell to you.”

Walking out of the store, he said: “I was shaking. I was hurt. I had this huge adrenaline rush. I felt embarrassed and I also felt nervous.

“At every station of the store, I’d given them my personal information. What if this kid decides to go into the computer and dox [to publish private information, as in a phone number or address] me?

“I am not a guy who has a lot of money. I can’t have people going to my apartment and harassing me.”

When the store was contacted for comment, a manager referenced a statement they published on their Twitter page:

“The Adorama Management Team deeply regrets the incident involving an employee in our store. Please know this is not who we are, and does not reflect the position of our owners or other staff members. This is being taken seriously and is being addressed with the highest priority.”

I would have said ," so you are the recently jobless alt-left idiot that just refused to make a sell ? "
Peace...

I'm just glad they didn't kill him.

It shows how tolerant they are by letting him live.

Ahhh hindsight. But yes. That would've been a great zinger. Too bad this employee is now going to be the next Hogg.

Homophone liberal wouldn’t serve a gay man

Feels like back when obama first ran for president and only thought marriage was between a man and a women. Good thing America has a marriage equality president who has been retired on Out Magazine

With me it would not have been hindsight.

We need microphone-free spaces

They’re obviously dangerous if in the wrong hands

Just because he isn’t a Democrat doesn’t mean he isn’t a liberal. Democrats are the ones that abandoned their base not the other wa around. That useful idiot store clerk is exactly the reason people are leaving the Democrats in droves.

I have more in common with real liberals than I do with Republicans or Democrats. The world is going insane.

Yeah, just like Heather D. Heyer at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, oh wait... she was killed.

I guess it "shows how tolerant they are" by killing her.

Isn't the broad-brush game such fun!

It's not that scury.
Some people are, but they dwindle by the day.
