Candace Owens sent out a “wake up” call slamming Joe Biden’s race-baiting 2020 presidential campaign announcement.
“So Joe Biden jumps into the race claiming that white supremacy made him realize our nation was at stake,” the Turning Point USA communications director tweeted on Thursday in response to Biden’s third attempt to run for president.
So Joe Biden jumps into the race claiming that white supremacy made him realize our nation was at stake.
BLACK AMERICA, WAKE UP!
I am SICK to my stomach that they are going to try to use us AGAIN to gain power.
THE DEMOCRATS THINK WE ARE EMOTIONAL AND STUPID. #BLEXIT

“I am SICK to my stomach that they are going to try to use us AGAIN to gain power,” Owens added.
Biden launched his 2020 bid with a video message Thursday that took a shot at President Trump, slamming him for his August 2017 comments after the Charlottesville, Virginia rallies.

“He said there were ‘very fine people on both sides.’ Very fine people on both sides?” Biden said in the video. “With those words, the President of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate, and those with the courage to stand against it. And in that moment, I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any I had seen in my lifetime.”
Owens also took aim at Biden in another tweet, reminding him that “Trump just reversed your white supremacy” with the federal prison reform bill, known as the First Step Act, which the president signed into law in December.
“The man who WROTE the crime bill of 94 which led to the mass incarceration of black men is now running because he’s worried about white supremacy,” Owens mocked the Democrat, referring to the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994.
Can we all just take a moment to laugh at @JoeBiden?

Dear Joe: Trump just reversed your white supremacy with the #FirstStepAct

As chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1993, Biden warned of “predators on our streets” who were “beyond the pale” in a speech on the Senate floor a day before the vote on the controversial bill.
His central role in shaping and shepherding the tough-on-crime bill will likely face scrutiny in a Democratic primary should he run for president in 2020. His 1993 comments, which were in line with the broad political consensus to tackling crime at the time, are at odds with a new bipartisan coalition of activists and lawmakers who are trying to undo what they say is a legacy of mass incarceration fostered by that era.
Biden’s word choice could also pose a problem with a new generation of Democrats who view the rhetoric at the time as perpetuating harmful myths about the black community.
Owens ripped into Biden’s newly announced campaign, calling out his race-baiting rhetoric and warning “Black America, Wake Up!” The 29-year-old conservative has repeatedly called out racism, systemic inequality and identity politics in her support for President Trump and her condemnation of Democrats. Last year, she launched Blexit, a campaign to encourage African Americans to abandon the Democratic Party.
Many on Twitter applauded Owens’ fierce attack on Biden right out of the starting gate.
How long has Joe been around. All of a sudden he cares about (or talks about) white supremacy, as if it is a new thing (if it actually existed). How dumb are these democrats?? Total fish brains. Nobody should trust a person who “just now” cares about stupid talking points.

I find it hilarious he’s telling us all that he’s only running bc he’s worried about our country under Trump 😂😂😂 “I’m only doing this to save all of you” 😂😂😂

The irony of it all is Trump is the guy reversing Biden’s racist policies!

Thank you Candace for your perspective. I know many young conservatives who listen to you and feel more confident in their views, views they can’t discuss with their liberal friends. They admire you for standing up for what you believe and communicating it openly & passionately
