A Closer Look at Candace Owens, a “Woke” Democrat Turned Conservative
Hard-core Leftists have managed to pervert the meaning of liberal so completely that many people use liberal and Leftist interchangeably. That’s a shame, but that’s what Leftists like to do with language.
Dave Rubin has a YouTube channel with over half-a-million subscribers. He is a self-professed classic liberal and a free thinker. As such he often finds himself at odds with today’s dogmatic (even fascistic) anti-free-speech Leftists. As he puts it,
… as much as I don’t like to admit it, defending my liberal values has suddenly become a conservative position.
The 19-minute video above is a condensed version of a Dave Rubin interview with Candace Owens, a young woman who is so repulsed by the Left and their vile, self-righteous, bullying tactics that she became a conservative “almost overnight.”
Not surprisingly, Owens is a hit with conservatives and classical liberals alike. Attractive and articulate, she is in the vanguard of young black Americans who are discovering the appeal of conservatism and all the lies that Leftists tell about conservatives.
Owens’ message is for everyone, and it is a nightmare for the Democrat party, which has abandoned the classic liberalism of the John F. Kennedy era in favor of the neo-Marxist Leftism of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and the kleptocratic Hillary Clinton.
For brevity, the above video includes only highlights from the full 86-minute interview that appears at the bottom of this article. Early in that full interview, you will hear the amazing story of how stupid Leftists sought to destroy Owens for launching an anti-bullying campaign that included an unmasking of vicious twitter trolls. So afraid that Owens might “ruin everything” about one of their favorite social media sabotage techniques, the Left mounted a full-scale fake-tweet campaign against her.
As both videos show, the Left picked the wrong woman to attack!
Candace Owens is the quintessential cheerful warrior who will not be bullied by the vile Left. She is attracting a huge following, including a great many black Americans. Unlike conservative speakers who tend to speak only in white conservative “echo chambers”, Owens aims to reach liberals, black Americans, and disaffected Leftists as well. Search on “Red Pill Black” in Google to learn more about Candace Owens the woman and newly declared conservative.
The Democrats’ incessant, negative, whiney, race/gender/class warfare themes have been failing them at the ballot box. Yet their leadership seems powerless to change their approach. Vote for me and I’ll steal for you is all they have. Classic liberal JFK-style approaches like tax reductions to “lift all boats” run counter to the Leftist ideology that has infested the Democrat party over the past 50 years. And tax reductions are a Trump theme. So the Democrats are stuck.
As more & more Democrats come to realize how the Left has taken advantage of them, they’ll undergo the kind of transformation that Owens and Rubin have, and the Democrat party will simply collapse into irrelevance and Antifa-style thuggery. Too bad. If Democrats could restore and renew classic liberalism instead of Leftism, we might once again have a viable two-party system.
