In an interview with Fox News, Conservative commentator Candace Owens talked about why she joined the NRA, and why black people, like herself, should be defending the NRA instead of siding with Democrats.
“I happen to fall into the window of people who knows my history. I’m a Black American and I know that the NRA was started as a civil rights organization training Black Americas to arm themselves and defend themselves against the KKK. So it’s incredulous to me that they stand on that formula,” said Owens.
“Because what the Democrats have been so successful at is wiping away history and re-writing it. So it’s very important that black Americans take a stand and protect the NRA in the same way that they defended us,” said Owens.
She then accused Democrats of using ‘ideological slavery’ to keep the black vote by using racism as an argument against gun rights. She went on to attack Huffington Posts list of ‘women trailblazers’ noting that there were no Conservatives on the list.
“The list is absolutely ridiculous… it’s just leftist propaganda. They have the president of Planned Parenthood on the list, as well as a co-founder of Black Lives Matter. How is that possible? If a black life matters, we’d be talking about the fact that there are 900 black babies that are aborted every single day. Over 19 million black babies aborted since 1973,” said Owens.
