Candace Owens wants to run for President in 2024. Over the weekend the conservative author and co-founder of BLEXIT tweeted that she might run for President. “I love America. Thinking about running for President,” Owens tweeted Saturday. Meanwhile, Aubrey Huff, the former pro baseball fielder, and two-time champion volunteered as Owens’ running mate.
By the time the elections arrive in 2024, Owens will be 35. This is the minimum age requirement for any American who wishes to run for President. Owens did not immediately respond to a request for comment. However, she did respond to a tweet. “Today’s GOP is fundamentally an authoritarian white nationalist party. Candace Owens would NEVER be their nominee,” tweeted by a user named Demosthenes. Owens forwarded the message with her own, saying “This won’t age well.”
Owings, a right-wing activist, is also a staunch Trump supporter. Also, she is a prominent conservative commentator. As a GOP mouthpiece, she never shied away from taking on Democrats. For example, she often tangles with progressive Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), who she called a brat at one point.
Last December, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that Republicans would cry inside “the walk-in fridge” of a restaurant if they worked as a waiter as she did before. Owens famously raked Ocasio-Cortez over the coals with her answer. ”I used to be a waitress and I worked multiple doubles. I am laughing out loud at how much of a coastal elitist you have to be to view that as the definition of a hard day at work. Please get on a plane and see the rest of the world (or country) you spoiled rotten brat.,” she responded.
Big Tech Mistreatment Of Conservatives
Last November, Owens blasted Big Tech companies for their shoddy treatment of conservatives. Then, she announced that she filed a lawsuit against Facebook fact-checkers from Lead Stories and USA Today. “It is time to fact-check the fact-checkers,” Owens posted in a video.
“I’m going to put these suckers through discovery and figure out what the relationship is that they have with Facebook. I wanted to show that these fact-checkers just lie, and they usually go unchecked because most people don’t have the money, don’t have the time, and don’t have the platform to go after them — and I have all three,” she told The Daily Wire.
Recently, Owens criticized conservatives for being spineless. She called out Republicans for not speaking up while Democrats were treating ‘half our country like terrorists' while using the Capitol riots last January 6 as justification. “'For any conservatives who do not have the courage to admit this and are capitulating to the sweeping acts that are being committed against citizens -including President Trump – you will come to regret such spinelessness. This is an important time in our country. Speak up,' she tweeted.
“Every good dictator needs a ‘reason' and a ‘justification' for locking up, censoring, and criminalizing all acts of political dissent. That is why I will #NeverForgetJanury6th. Because it's become a justification for evil against half our country who remain innocent. If you're smarter than a 5th grader, you realize that the radical Left is trying to brainwash the world into believing January 6th was similar to 9/11 or Pearl Harbor. Absurd. Just a sloppy attempt to justify censoring, surveilling & treating half our country like terrorists,’ Owens added.
Why Candace Owens Wants to Run
Owens shared her insight with The Daily Wire on the future of the Republican Party. “I think some people in the Republican Party are operating under a delusion that if Trump is gone, they can manufacture the party back into the McCain-establishment type party that it once was, but they are sorely mistaken,” she said.
“In my entire life, I have never seen or felt the energy in this country quite like I am seeing today, she remarked. In addition, Owens said that the media lost so much control of the narrative that they had to resort to censorship. “People aren’t listening to the pundits, the polls, or the celebrities anymore,” she added. When asked what that means going forward, she answered “Politically, get ready.”
Incoming Purge on Both Sides
“I believe we are on the brink of a purge on the conservative side of things. Many leaders who were once hailed as potential 2024 presidential candidates are now being viewed as traitors. Some of that criticism is fair — not all of it. Similarly, on the Democrat side, the moderates who have been pretending to support these far-left radical stances for the sake of votes are going to have to contend with the progressive wing within their own party,” she explained.
