At the Conservative Political Action Conference in Fort Washington, Maryland Friday, Candace Owens took to the stage to talk about the Left’s “doomsday cult.”
While doing that, she praised the Blexit movement and criticized former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
As for the Nike celeb and erstwhile footballer, Candace brought up a recent tweet of his, posted after the strike again Iranian terror figure Qasem Soleimani.
Here ya go:
“America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad. American militarism is the weapon wielded by American imperialism, to enforce its policing and plundering of the non white world.”

That’s a mouthful.
And about it, Candace had this to say:
“Leftist indoctrination teaches us today that it only really mattered — slavery only really mattered when they (whites) did it.”
She went on to spotlight another Kaepernick Twittering, in which he quoted abolitionist (and former slave) Frederick Douglass and referenced his own trip “home” — to the West African country of Ghana:
“How can we truly celebrate independence on a day that intentionally robbed our ancestors of theirs? To find my independence I went home.”

Sounds like the guy ain’t much for America.
But Candace said Colin forgot something — Ghana boasts 20,000 slaves. They’re children, and they work along Lake Volta for the fishing industry.
Regarding that whole Soleimani thing, she also took the opportunity to call out the hypocrisy of those against Trump defending Iran at the time:
“It was a remarkable day, because it was the day that we watched Democrats and liberals — the ones who have been shrieking about sexism, misogyny, and the need for more feminism — turn into passionate defenders of the state of Iran — the country whose constitution quite literally states that a woman’s life is worth half that of a man’s. A country where women are punished by law for up to 10 years in prison if they are caught not wearing a veil — suddenly became the apple of the Left’s eye.”
In her view, they’re a cult of doom:
“You will all recall when the Left — which, in my opinion, has morphed into a doomsday cult, feverishly and inaccurately predicting that everything President Trump says or does will end America — but you’ll all recall when they once again prophesied our doom… … ‘This is the Beginning of World War III,’ their headlines read. They promised us we were gonna head straight into World War III. … Of course, the war never happened.”
But Candace believes black Americans are increasingly leaving the cult. She promised the crowd:
“In the land of the free, in the home of the brave, I say this to you: There will be a Blexit. A black exit.”
That’s all fine and good, but I don’t see how it concerns her. After all, as we learned in July of 2018…
…Candace Owens is a white supremacist (language warning):
