Candace Owens, along with other prominent black Republicans, know the costs of revealing the lies of the liberals. Owens, much like Ben Carson, has attracted repeated criticism from the media for daring to reveal the reality that black people do have a choice when voting, and that choice is not unilateral: Democrats or nothing.
Unfortunately, ignorance still reigns supreme amongst the less logical, more volatile members of the DNC’s target audience, with former (current?) stripper/fledgling “rapper” Cardi B at the very top. A simple side by side comparison of Owens on the left and Cardi B on the right in and of itself is quite revealing, though not quite as revealing as the dispute that erupted across the media.
Since Biden apparently decided to leave his basement to interview Cardi B, Owens saw right through the rather stale tactic that attempted to excite young black voters, particularly in light of recent discussions regarding Biden’s interesting history with criminal justice, which is about as interesting as prison-happy Harris’s history as a prosecutor.
Owens rightfully called out Biden’s attempt for what it was: a pathetic effort to attract black votes, as if an interview with Cardi B could somehow offset both his and Harris’s less favorable records, certainly less favorable from a BLM standpoint, anyway.
“I completely agree with your assessment about Cardi B,” Owens told Shapiro during the “Sunday Special.” “It is one of the biggest insults — if black Americans are not insulted by the fact that Joe Biden, who has been hiding in his basement for the entire year, made an appearance and came out because he was gonna do an interview with Cardi B? Do we have nothing better to offer?”
“You’re pandering,” Owens said of the Democrats and Biden. “You look at Cardi B’s Instagram, you see she has millions of followers, and you think, ‘okay this is an illiterate person … they think she’s cool, she’s hip, just by sitting here and taking this interview, black people will vote for me.’ It’s basically saying, ‘black people, you are stupid, you are dumb.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Owens also ripped Cardi B’s music for what it really is: a “platform that contributes to the disintegration of black culture and values.”
Cardi B, in all her eloquence, had a decidedly less robust response to Owens, although in her mind the response was likely nothing short of legendary greatness.
“You wanna know why joe gotta talk to me Candice cause I have the #1 song & yet my sister can’t go to the beach in the Hampton’s wit out trump supporters harassing cause they were by themselves …” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Yikes. How about a little less focus on Project 1619 in public schools and a little more emphasis on, eh, spelling? Basic sentence structure, perhaps?
Fortunately, Owens effectively shut Cardi B down with a quote from Malcolm X, which the stripper/rapper was unable to respond to effectively.
“Malcolm X warned us years ago about the puppetry of interviews like Cardi B and Joe Biden,” Owens tweeted. “He always spoke out against the white liberal game of using entertainers as pawns. This isn’t really about you, @iamcardib. This is about black America waking up to Democrat racism.” [Source: The Washington Examiner]
Gianno Caldwell, a Fox News political commentator, also sees right through these types of lame attempts on the Biden campaign’s part, noting Biden’s dodgy history in terms of crime legislation.
“For every African American, especially, young African Americans, we point clearly to the 1994 Crime Bill, which was sponsored by Sen. Joe Biden. One which gave $9.7 billion to build private prisons in our country and provided grants and incentivized states to create what we call the three-strike law …
“Joe Biden is a part of the problem therefore I don’t understand how anyone could be thinking he could fix the injustices when he was the one who created them,” Caldwell said.” [Source: Fox News]
So, Joe, perhaps a little less Cardi B and a little more acknowledgement of the reality of your political career and decisions. If your handlers allow you to freely speak, that is.
These presidential debates cannot arrive soon enough.
