In a new Op-Ed Candace Owens blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for saying “thank you George Floyd for sacrificing your life for justice” after the Chauvin verdict.
Pelosi added “because of you and because of thousands, millions of people around the world who came out for justice, your name will always be synonymous with justice.”
Candace does not agree.

Owens writes in her Op-Ed for DailyWire:
George Floyd’s name will always be synonymous with justice? You’ve got to be kidding me.
I am not an intellectual coward who will simply accept the lie about George Floyd and the way that he lived as the truth just because the mob demands it. And believe me, it’s a lie.
