Elder Patriot – During an appearance on Fox and Friends this week, the Communications Director for Turning Point U.S.A., Candace Owens gave the Democrats a major wakeup call:
Owens has become known for her insightful opinions concerning the Great Awakening of Black Americans.
When Ainsley Earhardt asked this question Owens hit it out of the park:
“There’s some Black female leaders that have criticized Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for not protecting what they say [sic] Maxine Waters.
“This is what the letter from the black women leaders and allies says; we write to share our profound indignation and deep disappointment over your recent failure to protect Congresswoman Waters from unwarranted attacks from the Trump Administration and others in the GOP. That failure was further compounded by your decision to deride her as being “uncivil” and “un-American.”
“The Left created the Black card and they have to see what happens when you do something like this to say that a Black woman cannot be criticized whatsoever despite what she does. Maxine Waters was patently wrong!
“There was no argument to be made for what she said. Her remarks were uncivil and it was inspiring hatred towards not just Trump, the Trump administration and the people that support Donald Trump.
“So they were right to condemn her. And she was condemned across the board. How did she get out of it? She had some people play the Black card.
“This is the environment that they created.”
Owens pointed out that this was an example of the Left eating its own and Nancy Pelosi was forced to issue a retraction lest the Democrat Party fracture any more than it already has.
Owens continued to say:
“I believe the Black vote is going to become the most relevant vote in America by 2020. We’re already seeing a major shift – men and women.”
She then credited digital media for the community’s Great Awakening:
“For so long we were sort of trapped and we saw the version of society that CNN projected towards us.”
Owens predicted that she has seen enough evidence from her interactions on social media to make this prediction:
“There is going to be a major Black exit from the Democrat Party. They’re going to have to actually compete for their votes in 2020.
