Turning Point USA’s Director of Urban Engagement, Candace Owens, sure knows how to “trigger” the left.
Owens, a black conservative activist, really stirred liberals when she shared online an open letter to a defiant caravan of illegal immigrants who were marching toward the U.S. southern border, warning that Democrats “never met a victim they couldn’t exploit” for political gain, adding that the Central Americans can look forward to “lies, manipulation, and government dependency.”
She signed the letter, “Black America.”
We hear you’re marching over the border. Please let us know how best to transfer over the lies, manipulation, and government dependency that you have to look forward to.
The Democrats never met a victim they couldn’t exploit.

“Nothing will trigger a liberal more than a black female conservative wanting to see an end to illegal aliens invading this country. You go girl!!
#BuildTheWall,” one social media user aptly tweeted.

That Owens sarcastically suggested she speaks for black America didn’t set too well with liberal minorities, even those who don’t grasp that the “illegal immigrants” also entered Mexico illegally.
don't sign my name on this, sis. also, they're not "illegals" if they're not here yet. also, they're people so pls address them fairly. also you can't sign it 'black america' sis. there was no consensus by us on this, or maybe i missed the meeting 🤔 https://t.co/L3rvMVOWmA

How are they “illegals” if they aren’t even in the US yet? Candace is a fraud.

Your views are not aligned with the majority of Black Americans. What makes you think you speak for Black America?

I must have missed the election in which you was voted voice of Black America or were you also appointed by Putin?

Of course, Democrats are fearful that “Black America” will wake up to the fact that they are competing with the millions of illegal immigrants in America for jobs, as a social media user noted.
I hope my Durham friends here this message. It is the same as I expressed to the DCABP with no acknowledgement: 38.6% black unemployment competing w/illegals for work. https://t.co/zRFLrxTSlp

Or that they are possibly being “replaced” by illegal immigrants “more willing to fall on the sword for the corrupt [Democratic National Committee].”
Naturally, there’s the prerequisite claim that Owens is a traitor to her race. Ironically, the social media user closed with: “Truth and justice will prevail.”
You are delusional! You are aiding and abetting a criminal who lies and manipulates people who supports racism and hatred. And you are now turning on your own people to justify more hatred and division. You will not win! Truth and justice will prevail. https://t.co/iYfd4ljHoP

But did we mention the left was triggered? It would be funny if it weren’t so very sad.
Oh, you mean kind of like how Republicans never met a discrimination they couldn't justify as "religious freedom." Stop with the holier than thou shit. https://t.co/3wjDcrF2lr
