Candace Owens: The Anti-Ocasio-Cortez

From The American Thinker:
It has been a long time since a person as young as Candace Owens appeared on the political scene who is as brilliant, grounded, and quick-thinking as she is. She is the same age as Rep. Ocasio-Cortez! Let that sink in a minute. 
Owens has about a hundred I.Q. points on the supremely ignorant Ocasio-Cortez. Owens's grace and class are the antithesis of Ocasio-Cortez's empty-headed, ditzy meanderings. Owens's videos are all worth watching, and her performance on Tuesday in front of the House Oversight Committee was spectacular. She put the Democrats on that committee to shame, especially Jerrold Nadler and Ted Lieu. Both of them tried their best to humiliate her, to use her as a prop in their latest narrative that Trump is responsible for a make-believe rise of white nationalism and white supremacy. The two of them are imbecilic at best. Their focus on "white nationalism" is nonsense, but that is all the Democrats have now: nonsense. 
Owens's opening statement, for any conservative who watched it, was cause for a standing ovation. Miraculously, she has somehow escaped the mind-numbing indoctrination that has afflicted so many young people, especially those who ventured onto a college campus as students. She left the University of Rhode Island after her junior year — smart girl. She is the director of communications of Turning Point, USA, a young conservative group founded by Charlie Kirk, who is equally young and un-indoctrinated by tenured radicals. She is also the founder of Blexit, which encourages black Americans to leave the Democratic Party for its failure to do anything for black Americans but tell them they are victims of enduring racism — a lie at best, soul-killing abuse at worst. It is difficult to know if the Democrats take this movement seriously, but they should, for it has many, many adherents. The contrast between the nothing Obama did for American blacks over his eight years and what Trump has done for them in two is stunning. Those who are willing to admit that fact are leaving the Left.
