Candace Owens sounds off on ridiculous racist video mocking BLM

Conservative commentator and podcast host Candace Owens criticized a viral video that shows a white woman attacking a Black man and screaming, “Black lives matter!” claiming the movement is about white liberals destroying Black communities.

This is a video of a white woman, hitting a Black man and then screaming ‘Black Lives Matter at him,” Owens said.

“I cannot think of a more perfect analogy for everything that the fraudulent #BLM movement is: white liberals destroying Black communities, whilst pretending to care about race,” she added.

The video

The video was captioned with, “More mask madness, this time in an elevator. The mask police are really nuts.”

In the video, a white woman is shown attacking a Black man who was not wearing a mask. She then screams, “Black lives matter!”

The viral video has already garnered more than 850,000 views since it appeared online on Monday.

The controversy

Owens used the viral video to claim it is an analogy of the BLM movement. Rather than truly helping Black people, she argues the movement is funded by white liberals to destroy Black communities by pretending to care about race.

No other context is given, but part of the issue is likely related to the pro-choice and pro-LGBTQ views of the BLM movement. Both life and family are issues Owens frequently discusses from a conservative perspective.

The BLM movement gained strong popularity following the death of George Floyd in 2020 in Minneapolis at the hands of a police officer. The movement, however, led to much controversy as several protests turned violent, leading to arson, looting, and other damages that had nothing to do with protecting Black lives.

Owens and others have also criticized BLM for its liberal leadership.

The video makes for more controversy, but Owens used it to build even stronger emotions by tapping into the energy around the BLM movement and its various controversies.
