Political activist Candace Owens tore into Democrats for patronizing black voters by taking a knee and wearing “African garb” as they promoted police reforms. candace owens african garb
In one of the more embarrassing displays of political condescension you’ll ever see, a group of Democrat elected officials led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) presented their “Justice in Policing Act” reform effort.
In doing so, Pelosi directed her colleagues to take a knee to pay tribute to the tragic death of George Floyd.
“The martyrdom of George Floyd gave the American experience a moment of national anguish as we grieve for the black Americans killed by police brutality today,” explained Pelosi.
“This moment of national anguish is being transformed into a movement of national action as Americans from across the country peacefully protest to demand an end to injustice,” she added, failing to note the out-of-control riots which claimed many more lives than the original tragedy.
Each Democrat was sporting a ‘Kente cloth,’ a symbol of African heritage.

Nothing They Won’t Stoop To
Owens deftly pointed out that Democrats were making a mockery of black voters and constituents.
“I have to say – I thought there was at least one or two things that the Democrats wouldn’t stoop to for the black vote, but there is apparently nothing,” Owens ridiculed.
“Dressing in African garb and getting on their knees for a photo op because it’s Monday, [and] only 4 months to November.”
Serious question – If you’re a Democrat voter, how are you not thoroughly embarrassed by this?

Bear in mind, these are the same exact people who eviscerated President Trump over what they themselves referred to as a “photo-op” when he held up a Bible at St. John’s Church.
Now they sit here and patronize the black community by kneeling before the cameras, purposely dressed in Kente cloths?
Owens has been the subject of significant anger by the left for criticizing the media narrative driving the Floyd murder.
“The fact that he has been held up as a martyr sickens me. George Floyd was not a good person, I don’t care who wants to spin that,” she said in an interview with Glenn Beck.
“I don’t care how (much) CNN wants to make you think he changed his life around. He was just after his sixth or fifth stint in prison.”
