Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Candace Owens discussed violence in Los Angeles against police and blamed it on the “left’s increasingly deranged rhetoric.”
Candace was asked by Carlson why LeBron James has not responded to the LA Sheriff’s challenge to help fund the reward for bringing the shooter of deputies who were ambushed to justice.
Candace responded “I’d like to first point out and remind America of what Lebron James specifically said a couple of months ago and I spoke out against this immediately, he tweeted to his hundreds of millions of fans and followers that we are literally being hunted.”
This is the tweet Candace was referring to.
She continued “We, meaning black people, being hunted by, meaning white people in this country, and think about that statement and what kind of a bat signal it sends out to black Americans, to young black men, when someone of his caliber and his status is saying that we are literally being hunted.”
“He’s implying that white people are predators, that our law enforcement agents are predators, and that we are in a state of survival. I mean, if you are literally being hunted, that sort of rhetoric, right? That would mean that you either have to run to survive or that you have to hunt first to survive, and what we are seeing in L.A. is a natural progression of the left’s increasingly deranged rhetoric. It breaks my heart.” She added.
