Rob Smith calls out anti-Israel activists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for exploiting the Black community.
Newsweek Rob Smith, a black, gay veteran of New York, has broken the mold of what makes a conservative; as a result, some of his acquaintances have ‘disowned’ him due to his uncommon political viewpoints as a minority.
He has spoken about “coming out” as a Republican and why he supports “Blexit.” Blexit, the Black Exit movement, founded by Candace Owens wants to “free” black voters from the trite marriage of blacks and the Democratic party.
In spite of being a black conservative, Rob Smith, says he is aiming to open the mindsets of black voters, though his detractors have said he has aligned himself with white supremacists.
Smith is a product of a liberal working-class family of Ohio, but after he serving five years in the United States Army, as an Infantryman and deployed to both Kuwait and Iraq, he found himself pushed away from “left-wing outrage.” He announced his #WalkAway moment in May.
Rob Smith tweeted, “Democrats want me to find empowerment in victimhood, but as a veteran, I was NEVER a victim. It is time for me to #WalkAway.”
