Political commentator Candance Owens eviscerated congressional Democrats for blatantly using minorities as “pawns” in their political games.
The conservative author and activist spoke with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Monday about government-issued identification and how Democrats “insult” the black community by insinuating in their rhetoric that they “are wandering around like Neanderthals.”
The “Tucker Carlson Tonight” segment began with the host explaining how Democrats have been touting H.R. 1, otherwise known as the For the People Act, a sweeping bill that seeks to transform voting laws.
“Democrats say the law is necessary because minorities in this country don’t have ID’s,” Carlson said as he introduced Owens.
“Candace, do you have a government issued ID? And if you do, how did you get it?” he asked, tongue-in-cheek.

“I’m so excited to announce to the world that I was actually able to secure government issued ID, because I am smarter than a fifth-grader,” Owens responded with sarcasm.
“And this is such ‘the bigotry of low expectations.’ It’s not even, though because the Democrats know that what they are saying is absolutely foolish, the idea that black Americans are wandering around like Neanderthals, going ‘How do we do it’?” she added to Carlson’s amusement.
“This would mean, Tucker, we’ve never been into a hotel room … we can’t rent a car, can’t buy a car. We can’t buy liquor, cigarettes, all the things that require a simple form of identification. That means black Americans don’t even have a bank account,” Owens continued. “Can you imagine? We are running around going ‘How do we do it?’ because we can’t Google ‘DMV near me’ and get there and provide basic pieces of education. ”
“It’s so insulting!” Owens exclaimed, adding that Democrats “don’t think people understand what they are doing.”
She went on to expose the “strategy.”
“‘What do we want to accomplish? Anything that stands in our way, call it racist.’ And why do they call it racist? Because the truth here, Tucker, is they perceive black Americans as stupid and emotional. They view us to be low-information. They want us to be their pawns, so if they call it ‘racist,’ that means black Americans will go out and they’ll go attack that thing that they call racist,” Owens explained.

She contended that the Democrat strategy is to use black Americans as “pawns” and get them to riot, boycott and “basically amplify whatever it is that a Democrats are trying to achieve and, at the end of the day, all that ever is power.”
Carlson wondered why Democrats don’t, instead, opt for creating programs that would actually help people get identification.
“They don’t want people to have ID’s,” Owens replied.
“It allows them to flood our system with votes which is exactly what they are after. Again it’s all about power,” she added.
“Can I ask like where is the concern?…We literally give ID’s to illegal aliens because we say they need it you can’t live here without one. You wonder like why aren’t they upset about the lives people with no ID’s are leading,” Carlson said.
“Everything that they are saying is foolish. It’s just more political rhetoric and the Democrats will say anything. They will call anything and everything racist,” Owens said, adding that “all they want is to make sure they can jam through their policies” and that “they just think black Americans are too stupid to realize that.”
“I’m tired of that, it’s such an insult,” Owens asserted. “I just want to say to black Americans, wake up. Look at how that party views us. They view us as animalistic people to further their own interests and I’m completely done with it.”
