Candace Owens: 'Black Lives Only Matter to Liberals Ahead of Elections'
Blexit founder blasts Democrats over response to George Floyd's death
Conservative firebrand Candace Owens has slammed leftist hypocrisy, accusing white liberals of only pushing black issues when there's an election looming.
“Black lives only matter to white liberals every 4 years ahead of an election,” Owens blasted on Twitter.
“I’m so sorry to those of you that thought otherwise,” she added.

Owens is a political activist, author, and founder of the Blexit - black exit from the Democratic Party - movement.
She has recently been openly critical of the response to the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody last week.
According to Owens, the Democratic Party is “trying to inspire a race war” during an election year in collusion with the mainstream media.
She is urging her African American compatriots to stop rioting and acting “like a trained chimpanzee every single time the media runs a story.“
“That’s how you have to be black? Listen to your psychological conditioning,” Owens said.
According to Owens, the Democrat Party “burned down our economy, impoverishing millions” in 2020.
She warns that Democrats are now supporting the burning down of “entire cities” as an “act of war” against a duly elected president.
“The Democrats are truly evil,” Owens summarises.
Owens also suggested that African Americans can learn from the example set by Scottish people in the 17th century.
"Scottish people were severely behind the English people, just in terms of everything,” Owens said.
"And David Hume inspired and uplifted and challenged the Scottish people by saying if we want to get ahead, we have to learn English."
"In a matter of years, in a matter of decades, the Scottish people passed the English people in engineering, and in the sciences.
"And it’s because they challenged themselves to be better, and not to be worse.
"They didn’t pretend that somehow having a broken language, having broken-down families was a symbol of who we are.
"And that is so unique to Black America.
"I won’t subscribe to it," she concludes.
"People say that’s how you have to be Black.”
