Candace Owens torches Biden and Democratic Party for comments about black voters

If Biden's comments were not an example of racism, I don't know what is.

OPINION: Conservative commentator Candace Owens just spoke out to blast presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and the Democratic Party as a whole after he made racist comments about black voters.

Owens wrote on Twitter that Biden’s comments were yet another example of how the Democratic Party views “black people as trained chimpanzees.”

“WOW!! @JoeBiden tells @cthagod that if blacks have to think about whether they are for Trump or for Biden then, ‘YOU AIN’T BLACK’. Disgusting! @TheDemocrats view black people as trained chimpanzees who should not ask questions, but perform the same circus act every 4 years,” Owens wrote.

“REMINDER BLACK PEOPLE: If you don’t do the bidding for wealthy white Democrats ‘YOU AIN’T BLACK’. Just IMAGINE the media reaction if @realDonaldTrump said this to a black person that asked questions about his policies?” she continued. “Or if Trump said ‘ain’t’ when speaking to black people?”

This came after Biden said in an interview with Charlamagne tha God that if black Americans can’t figure out whether or not to support him over Donald Trump for president, “then you ain’t black.” He was forced to apologize for his comments after receiving widespread backlash from all sides.

“I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy. I shouldn’t have been so cavalier,” Biden said to black leaders during a Friday conference call, according to The Blaze. “No one should have to vote for any party based on their race, their religion, their background.”

If Biden’s comments were not an example of racism, I don’t know what is. Had Trump said anything like this, all hell would have broken lose. Yet the leftwing media is giving Biden a free pass on this simply because he is a Democrat. Once again, the hypocrisy of the Left is truly staggering.
