Conservative commentator Candace Owens exposed the hypocrisy of left-wing activist Colin Kaepernick during a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday.
During her speech, she described liberals as a “doomsday cult” due to their paranoid fear-mongering about the Trump administration’s agenda.
One prominent leftist she drew attention to was NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, the controversial leader of the ‘Take a Knee’ movement in sport, who has claimed that the “expansion of American imperialism” was underpinned by “attacks on black and brown people” in response to Trump’s Iran policy.
“Persia used to be an empire,” Owens stated, exposing the hypocrisy of Kaepernick’s self-proclaimed anti-imperialist stance. “Quite literally an imperial dynasty for 200 years, almost as long as America has been alive. It was once the most powerful state in the world, imperializing regions from Egypt to India, regions of – you guessed it – black and brown people.”
She noted the movie 300, which is about the Persian invasion of Greece in 480 BC. Owens added that the movie features “black and brown bodies that are looking to imperialize the white bodies in Greece”.
Owens then attempted to explain why Kaepernick would spread such obvious falsehoods. She suggested that perhaps he did not understand that the movie was based on true events, or that Kaepernick may intentionally be spreading misinformation.
“Maybe he’s paid millions to convince black and brown people that they are oppressed, to be angry and confused,” she added.
Candace Owens was just one of dozens of high profile conservative speakers that have addressed the CPAC conference over the last few days.
