We love Candace Owens. Just, point blank, she is amazing. She has this way of getting right to the heart of the matter, and she has a wry sense of humor that works to spotlight the absurdity of the left in ways that make a difference. She is a national treasure, and we have a feeling that even at her current level of conservative stardom, she hasn’t even begun to scratch the surface of her success.
Owens appeared on Mark Levin’s Fox News show this weekend to talk about the current racial justice movement, and she carved out some time to take special aim at NBA superstar LeBron James.
James, who has spoken out forcefully against police in recent weeks, drew Owens’ condemnation.
“He lives in a one hundred million dollar mansion in Bel Air,” she scoffed. “I always say, if you’re suffering through racism, please give me some of that. He’s got a White gardener, a White chef, all various White people that work for him, White driver. So if that’s racism, LeBron, please, please share some of that with the rest of us.”
Owens, who has been working diligently to persuade black voters to leave the Democratic Party behind, told Levin that there are many black celebrities who support her cause.
“If I opened my inbox and showed you the amount of celebrities that have written to me privately, that silent majority that we’re always talking about, they’ve written to me and said, ‘I’m finally starting to see the truth. I can’t stand being in Hollywood. I’m not allowed to use my voice to say what I actually believe,” Owens said. “These are the same celebrities that are actually posting the black squares on Instagram and saying ‘we must care about Black lives.’ And they’re saying they’re doing it basically under duress because if they don’t, they’ll lose their entire careers.”
Owens said that the idea that every black celebrity, sports star, politician, and business leader supports the leftist cause is an illusion caused by the media and cancel culture. She said that Americans shouldn’t be fooled that “things aren’t shifting just because we see people like LeBron James and the NBA painting Black Lives Matter on the ground.
“There is something shaking and something happening in this country,” she said, “and more and more people are awake and alive to what is really at risk, which is really the values and the principles that this country was built upon.”
We can only hope that she’s right.
