Candace Owens Hosts Massive BLEXIT Event - Mainstream Media Silence
Black Exit from Democrats: ‘A beautiful moment the mainstream media won’t report on’
Firebrand Candace Owens hosted a huge rally for conservative black Americans in Washington D.C. over the weekend, yet the event was largely ignored by the mainstream media.
An estimated 2,000 people marched for BLEXIT - a movement of black Americans turning away from the Democrats that was founded by Owens.
During the peaceful rally, demonstrators flew American flags, expressed support for President Donald Trump and the police, and joined together singing the national anthem.
Owens described the event as "beautiful" and a stark contrast to the violent radical-left Black Lives Matter movement.
“Black Lives Matter protests end with rioting, looting, and the destruction of minority communities,” Owens captioned a video of the anthem singing she shared n Twitter.
“BLEXIT protests end with 2,000+ black and Latino Americans singing the national anthem.”
The conservative pundit and author also noted that the mainstream media would ignore the moment.
“This is a beautiful moment that the mainstream media won’t report on,” she wrote.
“I’m so proud,” Owens concluded the post, adding an American flag emoji.
As shown in the video, demonstrators belt out the Star-Spangled Banner, before breaking out in “U-S-A” chants.

As The Daily Wire reported, hundreds of Black Lives Matter protests have given way to violence in recent months, according to a Princeton Study ironically highlighting the movement’s general peacefulness.
The study found that the left-wing protesters were violent about 570 times in over 220 locations across the country while demonstrating against alleged racial injustices.
“Princeton University group studies 3 months of Black Lives Matter protests. [The] intent is to show they are ‘overwhelmingly peaceful,’” reported Byron York.
“But [the] report reveals nearly 570 violent demonstrations–riots–in nearly 220 locations spread all across country.”
The BLEXIT event on Saturday focused on support for law enforcement officials — again in stark contrast with the BLM movement, which has explicitly called for the defunding of police nationally.
“Black and Latinos Americans do not support the Marxist, anti-police rhetoric that has become fashionable in the media,” Owens tweeted on Saturday.
“Today, thousands of us have descended upon Washington D.C. to [back the blue]. Minorities do not belong to the Left.”
As predicted by Owens, the mainstream media largely ignored the BLEXIT event, aside from a hit piece by ABC News suggesting Owens had to pay for support.
Instead, Owens said, she had made it public that she would provide finical assistance to some demonstrators who wanted to attend but were too financially strapped to make the trip.
During an appearance on “The Ben Shapiro Show: Sunday Special” in September, Owens criticized BLM for propagating the “big lie” that police are unjustly targeting black Americans.
“If you are truly, sincerely a white supremacist in America, the best thing you could do is do nothing and let black America tend to itself because what we do to ourselves, right, when left unattended to ourselves is way worse when you look at the statistics than allowing any other group to come in and try to do anything to us,” Owens said.
“And that’s including, of course, police officers, who are not killing black Americans for no reason.”
Systemic racism, she added, “is not at all an obstacle to black Americans today.
"There is no systemic racism. There is no law.
"There is nothing that says I cannot do something as a black person that you can do, so it’s completely false.
"What we’re really talking about is the fact that people want to absolve themselves of personal responsibility, and we’re being helped.”
