“Why doesn’t ‘if you don’t like me, you’re a racist’ work like it used to?” conservative commentator and Blexit movement leader Candace Owens asked Tuesday, reacting to news that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) had ended her 2020 presidential campaign.
Owens mockingly tweeted that she was “DEVASTATED to hear that @SenKamalaHarris dropped out!” – feigning surprise that Harris’ shopworn identity politics failed to guilt more Americans into supporting her campaign:
“DEVASTATED to hear that @SenKamalaHarris dropped out!
“I really thought the fake ganja-smoking lady with a washed up Hillary 2016 message of ‘but I’m a woman’ would go all the way. Confusing times! Why doesn’t “if you don’t like me, you’re a racist” work like it used to?”
Owens' Blexit movement is an effort to introduce conservative principles to urban society.
