Never afraid to speak the truth, fiery African-American Trump supporter and activist Candace Owens slammed Americans who have a “senseless hatred of Trump” and called out Democrats for being hypocrites in calling Trump the racist over his Baltimore tweets!
In an appearance on The Ingraham Angle, Owens defended Trump’s tweets and spoke out against the hate he has gotten over them, as well as comments from both Democrats and Republicans suggesting that the president should “tone it down” in his messages.
Regarding Trump’s tweets calling out Rep. Cummings and criticizing Baltimore, Laura Ingraham asked Candace,
“Could you send a different type of tweet? Could you send a different type of message? Is that part of the problem?”
Owens brilliantly replied,
“No, it’s not. Because we’ve seen people do that in the past, we’ve seen Republicans kowtow to the Democrats every time that they turn around and they say somebody is a racist, they cower. It needs to be Trump. It needs to be said.”
Later, Owens also called out Americans who are speaking out against Trump instead of facing up to the facts,
“Do not defend Baltimore as a city. Don’t do that to black America. They’re leading in homicides. They’re leading in rape. They’re leading in sexual assault. Black Americans are suffering in this city.”
Candace Owens followed up her appearance with a tweet re-iterating her message and defense of Trump:
The Western Journal commented on Owen's brilliant smack-down of liberal defense of Baltimore:
When Candace Owens gets worked up, there are really only two options: Step out of the way, or get ready to be steamrolled by logic and righteous indignation.
Owens has become one of the fastest-rising conservative stars of the last few years, frequently obliterating opponents on talk shows and on Twitter. On Monday, she did just that during an appearance on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” while taking on Democratic strategist Monique Pressley.
The debate centered on Baltimore, particularly President Donald Trump’s recent harsh words about the Democrat-run city. While many on the left screamed “racism” after Trump called out the literal rats “infesting” the city, Owens defended the president for telling the blunt truth.
“Could you send a different type of tweet?” Ingraham asked, referring to the president’s posts which inflamed his opponents. “Could you send a different type of message? Is that part of the problem?”
“No, it’s not. Because we’ve seen people do that in the past, we’ve seen Republicans kowtow to the Democrats every time that they turn around and they say somebody is a racist, they cower,” Owens replied.
Owens later scolded voices on the left who are defending Baltimore’s obvious problems and pointed out that living in denial only hurts minorities such as herself.
“Do not defend Baltimore as a city. Don’t do that to black America,” she blasted. “They’re leading in homicides. They’re leading in rape. They’re leading in sexual assault. Black Americans are suffering in this city.”
It depends exactly how you measure it, but the facts back her up.
The facts do, indeed, seem to back Owens up when she says that Black America is suffering in Baltimore.
Regarding Baltimore homicide, USA Today gave the following information,
Baltimore is the big city with the highest per capita murder rate in the nation, with nearly 56 murders per 100,000 people. At 343 murders in 2017, the city tallied the highest per capita rate in its history. Columbus tallied 143 murders — 37 more than 2016 and the most the city has seen in a single year.
