Candace Owens, the Director of Communications for Turning Point USA, also spoke at CPAC yesterday, calling for a “Black New Deal” and saying racism no longer exists.
“America is not a racist country,” Owens said. “Stop selling us our own oppression. Stop taking away our self-confidence by telling us that we can’t because of racism, because of slavery. I’ve never been a slave in this country.”
Owens talked about how Democrats want to divide the country because racism helps sell their brand of politics.
“What they care about is the politicking of fear, when the left results to calling me as I have read it, a racist, a sexist, a Nazi — because I really have the look going for me,” Owens said, acknowledging the criticism she received after saying at an event that Hitler’s nationalism was “fine,” but his invading of other countries was the problem.”
“The secret [to winning over black voters] is I simply tell them the truth,” she continued. “Truth number one, America is not a racist country. The people that continue to tell us that have a vested interest in racism.”
She went on to say that truth is on the side of conservatives and listed several more truths and called for a “Black New Deal” after dismissing AOC’s Green New Deal.
“Truth number two: abortion is murder,” continued Owens, “A hard-hitting truth is that the most unsafe place for a black child is not on the streets, it’s not when they see a police [officer], it’s in their mother’s womb.”
“Truth number three: racially motivated police brutality is a myth,” said Owens, “but father absence is not. The number one issue facing black America is that fathers have been removed from the home, is that they’ve been incentivizing father absence.”
“Truth number four,” continued Owens, “There are 3.6 million black children living below the poverty line, there are 4 million Hispanic children that live below the poverty line, and yet Democrats want to put illegals first. I say ‘no thank you. Wall.’”
