Natalie Beisner, a former Hollywood actress and lifelong liberal, recently went viral after sharing her transformation from an “atheist Democrat” to a conservative Christian. Beisner’s story resonates with the “Walk Away” movement, which encourages liberals to leave the Democratic Party.
For years, Beisner fully embraced the Democratic Party and even supported workerism, intersectional feminism, and equity. She admitted to hating former President Trump during his administration, though she couldn’t pinpoint why. However, the COVID pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protests in the summer of 2020 became a turning point for her.
Beisner expressed her confusion and frustration over being encouraged to participate in “fiery but mostly peaceful protests” while still being told it was unsafe to go to work. When she raised these concerns, she was met with hostility, labeled as selfish or even racist. Feeling betrayed by the party she’d supported her entire life, Beisner left the Democrats.
In her viral video, which has garnered 1.5 million views, Beisner argues that Democratic policies often hurt the very people they claim to support and want to help. She contrasts the reasonable, rational, logical, scientific, moral, and ethical stance of conservatives to the emotional and faux-compassionate liberal position. Beisner also recounts her return to Christianity, noting the warmth and tolerance she has experienced within conservative circles.
Beisner’s story highlights the need for conservatives to share similar experiences, reassuring others who might be questioning their own beliefs that they are not alone. Welcome to the conservative side, Miss Beisner.
