‘Like a bullet pierced my heart’: Trump-loving Candace Owens goes on self-pitying rant after Kanye ditches her

Published

on

Rapper and producer Kanye West on Tuesday said that he would be getting out of politics because he felt “used” by Trump supporter Candace Owens.

In a Twitter announcement, West wrote that Owens used his name on the logo for her so-called “Blexit” campaign without his permission.

“I introduced Candace to the person who made the logo and they didn’t want their name on it so she used mine,” West wrote. “I never wanted any association with Blexit. I have nothing to do with it.”

In a lengthy, self-pitying rant posted on her personal blog, Owens bitterly attacked all the people who have mocked her over losing her most high-profile fan.

“If knowing that I bleed and that I hurt brings you comfort and celebration— then there is no question that you won last night,” she wrote. “If I had to imagine what it would feel like to have a bullet pierce my heart, it would be exactly like the moment I learned Kanye told the world he felt I had used him. I wouldn’t wish the way I felt last night upon my worst enemy.”

Nonetheless, she insisted that she had never claimed West was the one who designed her “Blexit” paraphernalia.

“I never once said that Kanye designed the t-shirts for BLEXIT,” she wrote. “This is a lie that seems to have made its way around the world; a lie I would like to again correct for the record.”

Despite Owens’ denial, however, she can be seen in an October 27th video holding up a hat with the “Blexit” logo on it and saying, “This logo, these colors were created by my dear friend friend and fellow superhero Kanye West.”

Owens also stirred controversy last week when she helped spread the bogus conspiracy theory that Democrats were sending bombs to themselves as an elaborate ploy to gain sympathy and votes for the 2018 midterm elections, as seen in the now-deleted tweet below.

‘Breadth and scale’ of nationwide protests is ‘staggering’: NYU history professor

Published

Protests continued to grow in size in cities and towns from coast-to-coast -- and around the world.

"As a historian of social movements in the U.S., I am hard pressed to think of any time in the past when we have had two straight weeks of large-scale protests in hundreds of places, from suburbs to big cities," NYU history Prof. Tom Sugrue posted on Twitter.

"The breadth and scale of #Floyd protests is staggering," he continued.

"We have had some huge one-day demonstrations, e.g. March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom (1963); antinuclear march in NYC (1982), and Women's March (2017). We have widespread, simultaneous protests, such as in the days following MLK, Jr.'s assassination (1968)," he explained. "But the two together--very unusual."

The East Texas town has long had a reputation for racism.

Vidor is a small city of about 11,000 people near the Texas Gulf Coast, not too far from the Louisiana border. Despite the fact that Beaumont, a much bigger city just 10 minutes away, is quite integrated, Vidor is not. There are very few blacks there; it's mostly white. That is in large part because of a history of racism in Vidor, a past that continues to haunt the present," Keith Oppenheim reported for CNN in 2006.
