Protests across American erupted after a video of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was seen using a knee to hold down 46-yr-old George Floyd for just under 9 minutes during an arrest for allegedly attempting to pass counterfeit money. Unfortunately, with the aid of Antifa and other violent factions of the left, the protests quickly devolved into anarchy. Local stores and businesses were looted, arsonists burned buildings to the ground and so far, 4 police officers have been killed defending violent criminals using the death of George Floyd as an excuse to commit crimes.
Candace Owens, an outspoken black conservative, and founder of “Blexit,” a movement Owens created to encourage blacks to think for themselves and to not allow themselves to be co-opted by the Democrat Party where she claims they are used to keep leaders of the party in power.
This morning, Owens stunned Americans when she spoke candidly out about how America has defied logic by turning George Floyd, the victim of police brutality, into a martyr.
In a video she shared on Twitter, Candace Owens admitted that what she was about to say was going to be very unpopular, adding that she was unable to remain quiet about what she called the depiction of Floyd as “a martyr” any longer.
Owens explained, “We are unique in that we are the only people that fight and scream and demand support and justice from the people in our community that are up to no good. You would be hard-pressed to find a Jewish person that’s been five stints in prison that commits a crime and dies while committing a crime and the Jewish people champion and demand justice for,” adding that the same is true for white Americans and “even Latinos.”
Owens spoke about a “broken black culture” that is quick to “celebrate criminals,”saying,“We are embarrassing in that regard. This is why we have a cycle and a toxic culture because nobody wants to tell the truth and black America. It is so easy to be effective it is so easy to ask white people to bow down and apologize and do all these things for us—It is crap.”
Candace Owens, who was raised by her grandparents, and openly admits a large number of family members are either in prison or have served time in prison for crimes they committed,expressed skeptisicm about the narrative that George Floyd was trying to turn his life around, as she explained crimes he committed before he died. While Owens was clear to say on multiple ocassions that Floyd didn’t deserve to die at the hands of Officer Chauvin, he certainly was not a hero to the black community.
Owens asked how the woman who was pregnant that the time George Floyd busted into her home and held a gun to her belly feels about seeing the country burning down over a man the media and the left are holding up as a “martyr, calling it “bullshit!”
“We shouldn’t be buying T-shirts with his name on it,” she said.
“He was a violent criminal,” Owens said, while clarifying: “Just because he was a criminal does not mean you deserve to die at the knee of a police officer. I can’t say it enough, no, he did not deserve to die in that manner.”
Owens also explained, “Racially motivated police brutality is a myth” sharing statistics to back up her claim that while proportionally, more blacks commit crimes, more white people are killed by police.
Candace Owens explained that she doesn’t say the things she says because she’s trying to be popular, she’s saying them because they need to be said. She also admits that she will be hated for her honesty.
