‘Mocking people struggling financially’: Candace Owens snaps at Dems accusing her of paying Blexit rally attendees ‘to risk lives’

ABC cited emails, allegedly received by the participants of a “BLEXIT Back the Blue event” rally that took place on the Ellipse between the White House and the Washington Monument, shortly before Trump addressed hundreds of supporters from the White House balcony on Saturday.

The leaked emails also suggested that the attendees of the Blexit event were invited to join the Trump’s “law and order” protest and were told to wear “Blexit T-Shirts.”

While Owens did not make a secret out of the fact that her organization is footing the bill for travel of some of the activists, writing in an Instagram post on October 1 that the group would be “giving away a limited amount of travel stipends to those who really [need] them,” the ABC scoop has ruffled feathers online, prompting some Democrats to accuse Owens of using black people as paid “props” for “racist” Trump and endangering their lives in the process.

“They’re paying Black people to risk their lives as props for the COVID-infected racist president”, former Clinton’s foreign policy spokesperson Jesse Lehrich tweeted.

“She should be held accountable if any of them get sick. You’re flying people to be infected. And for what?” Elon James White, comedian, founder and editor in chief of This Week in Blackness, Elon James White, charged.

Owens admitted that “a small group of attendees who asked for financial help” were provided with “travel stipends,” while, in turn, accusing Democrats of “the weirdest, most elitist, Democrat flex” ever by what she said was “mocking people who are struggling financially.”

That did not stop the avalanche of the mostly partisan criticism, however, with one commenter arguing that “paying financially struggling people to attend an illegal campaign rally to massage trump’s ego is what’s “elitist.”

Owens’ supporters, however, praised her for doing “a wonderful thing” helping people to take part in a “peaceful protest”, while drawing parallels with Black Lives Matter protests that have repeatedly descended into violence.
