"White Supremacy and the KKK. Really? That’s what you guys want me to be concerned with this week? Do I look like an idiot?" – Candice Owens
Black conservative millennial Candice Owens took to her YouTube channel this week to address irrational fears of neo-Nazis and the KKK by serving "a cup of hot steaming facts."
"There are what, 6,000 Klansmen left in our nation? You want me to actually process that as a legitimate fear everyday when I wake up?"
"The media is creating this entire narrative, and it is crazy. Absolutely crazy to me that people have not figured this out yet. Why didn’t we hear a single thing about David Duke, white supremacy, and the KKK the entire time Obama was in office?"
Owens aptly points out that these fringe groups were holding rallies and marches throughout the entire eight years of Barack Obama’s presidency, and the mainstream media never covered these events. It is only after the election of Donald Trump that the activities of these insignificant groups were pushed to the forefront of the headlines. "The media is literally creating a reality", by heavily promoting these non-newsworthy events in order to sow fear, and create a false narrative in their effort to overturn the result of the 2016 election.
"Bottom line, I am not too disturbed by the events that happened in Charlottesville, because that is what happens when two groups of losers that hate one another get together."
"I think the President was absolutely right to call it for what it is, which is two groups of extremists. Nobody showed up looking to get hugged."
