Candace Owens eviscerates CNN’s ‘racist’ display, challenges Lemon to debate conservative ‘token negroes’

In response to watching several CNN contributors trash-talk singer Kanye West this week over his fervent support for President Donald Trump, conservative firebrand Candace Owens has invited two of the rapper’s critics to a debate. And not surprisingly, neither has responded.

Owens issued the challenge Wednesday afternoon after she had observed CNN host Don Lemon, analyst Bakari Sellers and political commentator Tara Setmayer denigrating West as a “token negro” and “dumb negro” on the Tuesday edition of “CNN Tonight.”

Listen to that disgusting discussion below:

“I want you guys to imagine if those words were EVER uttered on @FoxNews,” Owens tweeted Wednesday. “CNN has finally committed to going full blown RACIST. They want their slaves back.”

This prompted a reply from Sellers, who condescendingly wrote “bless your heart” and suggested the two “could have a conversation about anti-intellectualism, CJ reform or any topic I covered last night, but your Trump talking points might not be well equipped.”


But it’s clear now that the CNN analyst wasn’t serious. His purpose had been to continue demeaning black conservatives like Owens who’ve chosen to step off the liberal plantation and embrace conservative ideas about free markets, immigration, etc.

The proof lies in how he replied when Owens responded to this condescending jab by inviting him and Lemon to a debate.


Below is Sellers’ reply:

There has been no response from either Sellers or Lemon. Nor has the media paid much attention to their remarks. As of Thursday only The Wrap and Mediaite had covered the story.

Had a Fox News host ever said something even remotely similar about former President Barack Hussein Obama, the story would have likely been plastered all over The New York Times, The Washington Post, HuffPost, Media Matters and many more left-wing outlets.

And had an MSNBC pundit or any other liberal then challenged the Fox News host to a debate, the liberal pundit would have been cheered as a hero.

Despite the media’s refusal to cover this, many Americans were still aware of it thanks to Owen’s diligence. And the consensus among them was that, one, Lemon and Sellers would never debate her, and two, Lemon, Sellers and those like them were more interested in keeping minorities entrenched on the liberal plantation than in encouraging growth and prosperity.


**Update: Since publication Candace Owens has reported that President Trump will be speaking the upcoming summit where she hopes to debate Lemon.
