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”

Elitists Ready State-of-the-Art Doomsday Bunkers as Coronavirus Pandemic Worsens

It’s good to be a plutocrat!

Published

on

While ordinary Americans deal with the coronavirus pandemic and the many anxieties that accompany the unprecedented crisis, the super rich are retreating to state-of-the-art bunkers featuring bowling alleys, swimming pools, and other amenities.

The providers of these doomsday bunkers are reporting a drastic increase in business, with coronavirus hysteria causing at least one economic sector to boom.

“As unpopular as coronavirus is, it’s getting the publicity of a Backstreet Boys hit in the ‘90s,” said Gary Lynch, general manager of Texas-based Rising S Bunkers. “People have an infatuation with it.”

Business is good for Lynch and other bunker manufacturers, as the ultra rich scramble to use their remaining wealth to seclude themselves. There is no limit to the luxuries that can be provided in a modern bunker, with many of these bunker models resembling mansions.

“Movie theaters are common,” Lynch said. “We built one in California that has a shooting range, swimming pool and bowling alley.”

Lynch offers 24 different options for individuals wishing to purchase a bunker. The smallest model costs $39,500 and includes a custom air filtration system, bunk beds, a functioning toilet, and a kitchen counter. A more decadent set-up is the Fortress, which costs $1.009 million, including 15 private bedrooms, 42 bunk beds, a panic room, and a room to house guns.

The most garish model of all is the Aristocrat, which features a sauna, hot tub, swimming pool, gym, greenhouse, billiards room and garage. It costs an incredible $8.35 million to construct and is off limits to all but the super rich. Coronavirus is causing a run on these types of shelters, Lynch explains, as high-class Americans realize the necessity of extreme preparedness.

“In 2008, I talked to a guy for four-five months who was thinking about purchasing a shelter. I think he probably used the coronavirus to convince his wife, because he finally just bought one,” Lynch said. “That’s how most buyers are; they’re not in it for one single reason.”

The providers of these bunkers feel they are supplying a much-needed service in the market to alleviate the authentic fears of families in an increasingly topsy-turvy world.

“We don’t create fear. We resolve it. The true elite all have backdoor plans. They’re jumping on planes and flying to islands,” said Robert Vicino, who is CEO of the shelter-building company Vivos. “We give people the peace of mind that they have their own backdoor solution for when it’s time to take shelter.”

Vicino noted that his clientele has moved from middle class to upper class in recent months, as the wealthy no longer feel insulated from the rest of society from their gated neighborhoods. He reports that interest in his bunkers are up 1,000 percent year-over-year, and sales are up 400 percent, as doomsday fever sweeps throughout America.

“As long as time permits, we will continue to build bunkers. This world won’t be safer tomorrow,” he added.

For the Americans without the wealth to retreat from society, they will have to deal with a tumultuous and dangerous reality for their loved ones as the coronavirus pandemic continues without any sign of slowing.
