Exclusive Interview: #WalkAway Founder Refused Service by Employee at NYC Camera Shop

Published

on

Earlier today, the founder of the #WalkAway movement tweeted that he was refused service at camera store due to his political activity.

“I’m shaking right now,” wrote Brandon Straka. “I just went into a camera store to buy a camera and a light and mic, etc. and they recognized me from tv. I was refused service because they said it was for “alt right” purposes. That literally just happened.”

The camera store, Adorama, located in New York City.

Straka gave the specifics in an interview with Big League Politics. 

“This is a specialty shop,” Straka said. “They have a section for cameras, a section for lighting, and a section for microphones. I finished with every section except the microphones, and when I went up there, another customer recognized me from Tucker [Carlson Tonight]”

Straka said that the other customer was excited to meet him, pulled up the clip of Straka on the popular cable news show, and asked for a picture. He was excited to meet a fan.

“I was like, ‘cool,’ I made his day,” Straka said.

But then things turned nasty.

The employee in the microphone section who overheard the conversation refused to sell any equipment to Straka because it would be used for “alt-right purposes.” Straka asked that Big League Politics not name the employee.

Straka said that the employee was a fellow gay man, and that when he tried to explain what #WalkAway was, the employee was not interested in having a conversation. Straka was directed to another employee at the store who completed the sale. Straka could not help but point out the irony. He is trying to help liberate the political left from closed-mindedness, and was bewildered that another gay man, supposedly a tolerant liberal, would not simply hear him out.

According to Straka, though, everyone else in the store acted benevolently towards him.

“I want to stress that the service of everyone else in the store was professional and courteous,” he said. “It was just this one employee who treated me poorly.”

On Twitter, Straka sent a message of strength.

“What happened to me today will NOT slow me down or deter me in any way,” he wrote. “We will prevail. #WalkAway”

David Lacey showed exceptionally poor judgement during the incident, confronting the Los Angeles BLM protestors with his finger on the trigger of a firearm. The protestors don’t appear to have been engaging in illegal activity- it’s legal to solicit most residences through ringing on the doorbell if you aren’t asked to leave, although the protestors remained after David Lacey told them to “get off of my porch.

David Lacey’s attorney, Samuel Tyre, released a statement expressing his disapproval that Becerra chose to file cirminal charges in the incident.

My client and I are disappointed that the Attorney General’s Office felt that the conduct at issue amounted to criminal behavior.  We disagree entirely with their assessment, but we have the utmost faith in the justice system, and we are confident that the correct result will be reached.

At this time we are not going to comment on the facts of the case, except to say that my client’s human instinct is forever and always to protect his wife and his family and to keep them safe from physical harm.  We look forward to all relevant facts coming to light.

Elected officials of Democratic cities and communities seem entirely inept at responding to criticism of their leadership from Black Lives Matter.
