Candace Owens slams BLM for demanding Black woman fill Kamala Harris' Senate seat: 'They will take it by force'
Candace Owens alleged that Gavin Newsom will do as they say and added that 'this is what happens when you don't have a spine to stand up to people'
Candace Owens has alleged that "Marxist" BLM will force Gavin Newsom to replace Kamala Harris in the Senate and appoint a Black woman. The Black Lives Matter movement had launched a petition on Monday, November 16, where they urged the California governor to appoint another Black woman to fill the vice president-elect's seat.
While speaking to Fox News on Wednesday, November 18, Owens shared, "He will absolutely capitulate because he has no choice in the matter, and I have to say good for Black Lives Matter."
She went on to claim that the organization "views themselves as Marxist" and went on to claim that "they will take what they have to take by force". In the petition, BLM Global network wrote that "appointing a Black woman to this seat is nonnegotiable — this must be done."
The petition added, "If there is not a single Black woman in the Senate, then the Senate is simply not a proper representation of the people." The petition had also shared that it was Newsom's time to deliver by appointing a candidate of its choice saying that the Democratic party had become "reliant on Black voters, particularly Black women".
They had also added that there would have been a "very different electoral outcome" if it wasn't for Black voters and organizers across the country. The petition read, "This is not a one-way street. We showed up, and now, it’s his turn to do the same. If Governor Newsom is serious about his role in the Democratic Party, he will deliver to his base and answer our call to appoint a Black woman to the Senate."
Owens slammed the BLM petition and shared, "So them writing to him is basically saying you’re going to do as we say, and I believe you’re going to see that Gavin Newsom will do as they say."
"This is what happens when you don’t have a spine to stand up to people in the beginning. You know, when they’re rioting and looting and you’re calling this a peaceful protest. This is what happens in the end. You start to manifest this idea that they are in power and they are in control and you are just puppets in office that will do their bidding," she added.
"So I think this is good, he’s going to have to deal with this, he’s going to have to deal with this the right way, and I bet you anything, he’s going to capitulate and put a Black person in office," she continued. There has been a lot of speculation over whom Newsom will select to replace Harris after President-elect Joe Biden had appointed her as his running mate in mid-August.
Owens was recently slammed for criticizing Harry Styles who wore a dress on the cover of Vogue. The Trump-supporting author dissed pictures of the former One Direction star who was the first man to ever be on the cover of US Vogue. Styles was seen in a series of frilly frocks and a kilt and had told the publication, "There’s so much joy to be had in playing with clothes."
Owens had retweeted the cover and had written, "There is no society that can survive without strong men. The East knows this. In the West, the steady feminization of our men at the same time that Marxism is being taught to our children is not a coincidence. It is an outright attack. Bring back manly men."
