Candace Owens, a conservative personality who claims to be a reformed liberal and the voice behind the Red Pill Black website, had sharp words for GQ’s decision to call Colin Kaepernick the “Citizen of the Year.”
“The last time I mistook skin complexion for progress, I called him Barack Obama,” Owens said in the video published on Monday.
Owens blasted Kaepernick, saying that “the definition of bravery has really shifted over the last few decades” if his decision to kneel during the national anthem was considered “brave.”
And just like Tomi Lahren recently did when she posted on Twitter with an image of Kaepernick kneeling during the D-Day invasion, Owens heralded the Allied forces for bravery, celebrating the troops over Kaepernick as if anyone before her and Lahren had been trying to compare the two.
She blasted Kaepernick for kneeling during the national anthem, which she said was meant to honor those soldiers, and said, “Colin Kaepernick, you are a coward in my book, and when the dust from the storm of ignorance settles, you will be remembered as one.”
She compared Kaepernick’s activism to the “longest running episode of Toddlers and Tiaras ever” and said that he was “throwing a tantrum” on his Twitter feed.
During the vlog, Owens also came for JAY-Z and the controversy surround Meek Mill’s harsh prison sentence, as well as the Reverend Al Sharpton.
