Candace Owens never shies away from taking a jab or two at the Left. The 'woke' and everyone associated with wokeness is automatically Owens' target. Owens is no stranger to making controversial statements on social media. The conservative commentator and author once again took aim at the Left when celebrating Mother’s Day on Twitter and added a sarcastic comment. 

Referring to Rep. Cori Bush’s recent reference to mothers as "birthing people", Candace wrote on Twitter on Mother's Day, May 9, 2021, "Is it still okay to say Happy Mother’s Day?  If so, Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies out there. There is no job more rewarding."

What was the remark?

Missouri Congresswoman Rep Cori Bush was giving a speech before Congress on May 6 about her struggles with birth discussing how doctors dismissed her pain during her two pregnancies. ”I sit before you today as a single mom, as a nurse, as an activist, congresswoman, and I am committed to doing the absolute most to protect black mothers, to protect black babies, to protect black birthing people, and to save lives," Bush told Congress.

She then took to Twitter to write, "Every day, Black birthing people and our babies die because our doctors don’t believe our pain. My children almost became a statistic. I almost became a statistic. I testified about my experience @OversightDems today. Hear us. Believe us. Because for so long, nobody has."



 

While Bush's use of the "gender-inclusive language" has sparked an online debate of its own, Candace jumped in as she seemingly set the record straight for her followers - making the sarcastic comment, "Is it still okay to say Happy Mother’s Day?"

Called out by Candace's fans

And many of her followers chimed in with her. "You almost have to ask before you say anything these days," one user tweeted. Another tweeted along similar lines, "I still say it and if it offends someone (but really, what doesn't nowadays?), oh well! Too bad, so sad, suck on a lollipop. Happy Mother's Day to you Candace and all of the wonderful mothers out there!" Another wrote: "I hope so Candace, because I’m adopted. My mom didn’t “birth me” so if it’s changed to “Birther’s Day”, adopted people can’t celebrate their moms, I guess? (Although I still would, of course). But this is insanely insensitive and so dumb."



 

 



 

 



 

 

A seemingly farsighted user said, "In a couple of years celebrating mother’s day will be considered transphobic." Like her, many made and added to the sarcastic comment. "No no - it’s “Birthing Person Who Has Previously Birthed Day.”" Another user added, "Liberals be like “that sounds like the babyarchy to me”. Happy mommas day Candace." 



 

 



 

 



 

 

"It will ALWAYS be ok to say “Happy Mother’s Day” no matter what the “woke” say. I hope you enjoyed your first one and find your greatest joys in the years ahead," a user tweeted. 

 



 

 

Candace gave birth to her first son early this year in January and took to Twitter to share the news with her followers. "It’s true what they say— the whole world stops when your child is born. 1/13/21 My first born son," Owens tweeted with a blue heart. "'Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him' -Psalm 127:3," Owens tweeted.
