, 95 tweets, 16 min read Read on Twitter I really walking to The National right now to report back on Blexit? 🧜🏻‍♀️
Seats mostly look full. There was a movie to start.

Now Candace Owens is opening saying this is a 90s vibe b/c it didn’t feel like it used to be like this. Cited growing up watching Huxtables, the Jeffersons, etc. She wanted to be a doctor, not like Mike.
Loud applause when she says America is not racist, the media wants us to think it is. Now Owens is calling out Ralph. Says this is the Capitol of “Democrat Hypocrisy.” 🧜🏻‍♀️
Owens says Ralph’s yearbooks plus abortion stance = Satan to her.

Owens says that abortion is the topic white conservatives can connect with to the black community on. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Owens just linked the concern about abortions to the stagnant black population rate so she could pivot to say the Democrats want open borders to build their next voter block. Watching her link backs play out is absolutely wild to me. 🧜🏻‍♀️
This is surreal. I’m standing here while a loud “Build the Wall” chant goes on. It’s dark in the audience. Like.... imagine a typical concert at the National.... people seated.... chanting. 🧜🏻‍♀️
People are super hardcore cheering when she says radical feminism is the biggest threat to breaking up families. Some people standing when she says boys should be boys... they should be men, pillars of society. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Candace says the point of Blexit is to start a Ted talk of sorts for black and Hispanic people and white people to come together and talk about these issues. 🧜🏻‍♀️
She says her wake up call was when overnight Trump became a racist and bigot. Says this was a man idolized in hip hop music so how is he a racist now? Says she was a liberal and it took a lot of humility to admit she was wrong. Says Dinesh was key to her awakening. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Dinesh comes on with a standing ovation. White guy in the back yells “liberals are a joke.” 🧜🏻‍♀️
Omg. Dinesh is starting at the “teeth of controversy”— monuments. Buckle up.

He asks what activists are doing when pushing over statues? Make people believe the crime of slavery was a crime not of the Democratic Party but of the south. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Says Lincoln said the 4 horsemen of the apolocalypse upholding slavery are:

Roger Tawney
Franklin Pierce
James Buchanan
Steven Douglas

But no one tears those statues down. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Dinesh says no Republican in the United States owned a slave the year before the civil war. Says all slave owners were Democrats.

Guy in front of me says “come on” like this is a church service.

Says no one has ever shown a valid example that proves him wrong.🧜🏻‍♀️
Says Ulysses Grant was a Democrat when he inherited a slave on his wife’s side. He would later become a Republican.

God, what I would give for a live fact check on these speeches. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Says from start to finish the Democratic Party is the party of slavery, succession, Jim Crow, reviving the KKK, lynching, racial terrorism opposition to the civil rights act and voting rights act... 🧜🏻‍♀️
Says the “big switch” of the parties roles is a work of genius if they could pull it off by proving that the all the Dixiecrats joined the Republican Party. Can’t do it.

Dinesh says there are 100+ liberal historians currently trying to refute him. Big switch never happened. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Dinesh says there are 2 parties. The party of the ladder and the party of the rope.

Ladder Party: Government’s role is to hold the ladder and its our job to climb it. Says it depends some on luck but mostly on achievement. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Rope party: group of immigrants and people of color at bottom. Democrats on top of a building saying we’ll send the rope down for you. Says there is a dependency. Says those who have gone the rope before you, never make it to the top. Dems pull and hold in no man’s land. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Says you’re stuck, and you realize “maybe they like me that way.” Says party of the rope are both a dependency and degradation. You have to show people the ladders. Show them where they are. Show them how to climb the ladder. Says history is on their side. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Dinesh closes by saying if they do that, they will see a day Reagan just dreamed of. A day Reagan called morning in America.

And now Candace is back talking about running stronger candidates. 🧜🏻‍♀️
She says they have to find strong minority candidates to run. Disproves race card. Cites Gilliam.

Says her mom used to call her little monkeys when she was a kid. Says she isn’t offended by being called a monkey. Her favorite book growing up was monkeys jumping on the bed. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Next speaker is EW Jackson. Starts by saying he doesn’t want Northam to shake his hand. Says that’s because of his abortion beliefs. Says things he can do with that hand: resign and wave goodbye. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Everyone is screaming “Governor Northam It’s Time To Resign.”

People chanting in the back near me “good night left side.” 🧜🏻‍♀️
People standing up. 🧜🏻‍♀️
USA chant. 🧜🏻‍♀️
People next to me chanting “get the reds out” and “smash the red.” 🧜🏻‍♀️
EW Jackson talking about how he was a foster kid and gang member. Then at 10 years old, his life changed because his father stepped back into his life. He was failing 5th grade because he was too busy with his gang. Says it wasn’t a government program, it was his dad. 🧜🏻‍♀️
EW Jackson said a whole bunch of other stuff and ended at the Pledge of Allegiance. Candace Owens is now back. Asks how Jackson lost his election and says he took the audience to church. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Next Speaker is Brandon Tatum. Former Police Officer.

I just zoned out. Came back with him talking about his tattoos and past life. Says god saved him. Talking about growing up thinking white people all hated black people but everyone is just god’s children. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Tatum doesn’t believe in a pro white agenda or a pro black agenda. He believes in a pro American agenda.

He doesn’t believe in white privilege. He believes in Christ privilege. No one can control his destiny but God. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Tatum encourages everyone to go on a ride along with a police officer. Says that was the first time he saw a hero. He thought football players were heroes... then he went on the ride along. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Says democrats are destroying neighborhoods. Asks who is there when no one else is? Asks who is there when no one wants to snitch? There are threats of violence and yet.... cops go to work every day. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Says people who are taught on their way out the door to be afraid of police wont cooperate with police. He says if you cooperate with police you can fix your neighborhood. People will stop selling dope on the corners and murderers will be locked up. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Tatum is telling a story about wearing a hat (I think a MAGA hat?) at a Waffle House and having people stare at him like he was a sell out. Says he won’t be afraid to stand up for what he believes. 🧜🏻‍♀️
He says these liberals want to scare people into not coming out. Wanted to scare them into not coming out to this event. Liberals want to paint people are “racists” and “coons” and “sell-outs.” 🧜🏻‍♀️
Next 20 minutes will be for people to ask questions of Candace, Dinesh, Brandon, and EW. God help us all. 🧜🏻‍♀️
First question asker says he believes affirmative action has hurt white and Asian-Americans and African Americans. Still believes they need to help disadvantaged people. What do the speakers suggest? 🧜🏻‍♀️
EW says that his teacher told him black people don’t do well on LSATs. Says affirmative action reinforces these beliefs. Says he did well academically but had no guidance. Reach out to disadvantaged people and give them guidance. Race norming stuff has got to go. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Dinesh is now speaking. Says there is nothing wrong with schools looking at people on an individual case by case basis. Owens says no substitution for hard work. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Next person asks about goal of Blexit. I was repositioning myself so totally missed the answer.

Candace says exit the victim mentality and enter the victor mentality. Life is tough for everyone. 🧜🏻‍♀️
They have been talking about constitutional militias for awhile now. EW says there needs to be a bit of a problem if people want to dis
Next person says MAGA hat being affiliated with KKK hood. Says they just saw the blackkklansman. Asks if they will speak on Charlottesville and maybe what media doesn’t want people to know. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Candace Owens says: MAGA hat is not a symbol of hate— it exposes symbols of hate.

EW says he got in trouble like president for saying there was racism on both sides. 🧜🏻‍♀️
EW says “Everyone knows the KKK and skinheads are a bunch of idiots....” says it’s the antifa people that have all of the media attention. Says them and BLM are stoking racism. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Dinesh says the left constructs the narrative. Says they stage it. Even Unite the Right was suspicious. Says Jason Kessler was a left wing.

Dinesh is saying Richard Spencer isn’t part of the right based on questions he asked him. He has nothing in common with trump.
Dinesh says they need more media on their side to expose facts. People cheering. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Next question asker says they has been researching Republicans and is asking about the “lily white” movement in Republicanism.

Dinesh says history as we know it is progressive history. They leave out facts inconvenient to their side. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Next question asker has been a Republican since 2000. She’s so glad so many people are here because it used to feel lonely. There used to only be talk radio. True depth of info hasn’t been revealed. Says everyone needs to be citizen journalists. 🧜🏻‍♀️
This man says he got attacked by 20 antifa last year. Asks how to stop antifa. How to stop them from doxing people and getting them fired. They are civic nationalists.
Dinesh is giving the “soft core” strategy and “hard core” strategy.

Starts by saying they are the party of the nice guy. Talking about Rutgers. Problem is left interprets this as a “big win for the left.” Says they have to stop being the party of invertebrates. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Dinesh talking about something Lincoln said that means do it right back. People near me are hooting. Recording this answer closely. Dinesh clarifies he isn’t saying go left on the left. People over here seem disappointed. Someone muttered “a new America.” 🧜🏻‍♀️
We’re on a new question now.... has prompted Candace Owens to go on an anti-me too rant. She says she speaks out against radical feminism because she stands up for rape victims. 🧜🏻‍♀️
And here is Bishop Leon Benjamin asking a question. He is a former #RVACouncil candidate and current Richmond GOP chair. Asks how people can not be ashamed to talk about religion and politics. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Here is a thread on Leon Benjamin for context. 🧜🏻‍♀️

That was the last question before a 15 minute intermission. Video first.🧜🏻‍♀️
Intermission time. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Anyone in need of a Blexit “liberals can’t bully me” shirt? They are free. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Still on intermission. 🧜🏻‍♀️
All over the place during this intermission. 🧜🏻‍♀️
I’m walking around with a Blexit shirt and evidently I blend to well. One of the National staff just asked where to get the shirt and how much they cost. Asked about colors. Said he was looking for a dark one because his skin tone doesn’t work with neon. 🧜🏻‍♀️
He mentioned he got called in to work 30 minutes in advance of the event starting. Said he still isn’t sure what it is but he enjoyed it and wished there was more time for questions.

My response: 🦗😳🧜🏻‍♀️
Found some signs. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Candace Owens is now back talking about Jussie Smollett.

“I’ve done a lot of MAGA events but at none of them did anyone say ‘THIS IS MAGA COUNTRY.” Says far fetched. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Next speaker is Rob Smith. Army veteran and black gay conservative.

“This, now this right here... this is MAGA country, right? Before 1/29, did you ever hear MAGA country before in your life?” Now he’s just talking shit about Jussie’s story. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Rob Smith says he is well on his way to being Americans favorite black gay republican. People tentatively laugh. He says it’s okay, this is a safe space. You can laugh. Laughing intensifies. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Smith says his wake up was Pulse Orlando. He was a liberal. He waited for Democrats to say something because he thought they were going to protect them. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Says he believes in gun rights. Gay rights are gun rights. He wants to be able to protect himself. 🧜🏻‍♀️
He says there have been no one worse to him as a gay man than liberals. Says people at CPAC were so welcoming and friendly. They are making it safe for other LGBT people to wake up. Making it safe for black people to wake up.🧜🏻‍♀️
He asks “what is MAGA country”? To Smith it’s the country a gay black man from Akron, Ohio can rise the ladder and serve his country. MAGA country is a place where he can be in a diverse room and they are united in MAGA country by a love for this country. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Someone in back yelled “America First” and there’s another USA chant. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Candace says there are 3 more speakers. It’s 530PM.

She says people live in gated communities but say there should be no wall. Says people don’t want them to have 2A rights but travel with armed Security. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Oh boy. Next speaker is Jerome Hudson. Editor for Breitbart. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Jerome says he is here to deliver a message that the left is losing. He says he is here to deliver the “Leftist plantation a message: they don’t own us and they never will.” 🧜🏻‍♀️
Jerome says long before social media, Andrew Breitbart would hold up his phone at rallies like this and tell people to stand up and be loud. Says people are afraid of them because they will be loud. Call is for citizen journalists. 🧜🏻‍♀️
“To the race hustlers, we say this: you had your chance, you did not tell the truth, and now we will.” - Jerome

People are booing Kamala Harris and Cory Booker. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Jerome believes in an America that puts citizens first. He believes in an America where people get a hand up, not a hand up. Says Hollywood and establishment media don’t like that. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Says Hollywood complains about carbon footprint but flies around in private jets. Says Hollywood is pro feminism but exist in a world of Harry Weinstein. Says Hollywood is anti gun rights but puts guns in films. 🧜🏻‍♀️
“They say we are in the sunken place but it is the left wing Hollywood that is in the sunken place.” - Jerome Hudson 🧜🏻‍♀️
“As Candace Owens says, they can’t call us all coons.” - Jerome Hudson

He says follow conservative media. Including Breitbart. Says nothing pisses off the left more than a happy white, Black, Brown conservative on social media. Says evil wins when good people remain silent. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Jerome closes on Lincoln’s words.

“Rise up, stand y’all, trust in God, remain free.” 🧜🏻‍♀️
Candace Owens thinks the right is winning the social media war. She’s bringing up Rogan O’Handley. First they are playing some of his videos. One is walking through Compton with a MAGA hat. 🧜🏻‍♀️
He says his mom was upset when he made these videos. Told his mom it was her fault. She taught him it’s about walking the walk. 🧜🏻‍♀️
For those who haven’t seen the video... “spoiler alert....[he’s] alive. He was scared out of his mind.” 🧜🏻‍♀️
He says this isn’t your grandfather’s Republican Party. They have taken it over. This is a party led by Donald trump, Candace Owens, Dan Crenshaw. Not a party of globalists like John McCain. 🧜🏻‍♀️
He says he turned down a $500K salary job as a partner at a competitor law firm to not go forward with his plan to go to Florida.

Now he’s doing what he loves. Tells everyone to start a Twitter, start a Facebook, start a YouTube channel. They can’t stop all of them. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Candace Owens says white guilt is weird to watch from the outside because it’s white people yelling at other white people. Says no one is better at exposing the hypocrisy of white liberals than next speaker. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Rogan says it’s cultural appreciation, not cultural appropriation. Says people aren’t born offended. You have to be taught to be offended. 🧜🏻‍♀️
He says there is nothing woke about white leftists when you turn around and advocate for policies that have kept black people down for decades. 🧜🏻‍♀️
He says democrats dumb down speeches when they speak to minorities so they can understand. Now talking about Hilary Clinton and hot sauce. People booing loudly. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Struggle is so real. Pockets not deep enough to hold my extended battery. 😂😂😂🧜🏻‍♀️
He says Democrats have been using minorities for votes for far too long. Says conservatives care about minorities. Says trump cares. Says conservatives are about love. Left is about hate. 🧜🏻‍♀️
He says Hollywood is full of feces and homeless people and blames that on the left. Look at how it was when Regan was President.

“If someone wants to shame you for being Republican, tell them you are the most republican person they will ever meet.” 🧜🏻‍♀️
That was the last speaker. Candace asks minorities to stand up. Probably 20-30% of audience stand up. Asks Americans to stand up. Everyone gets up. That’s how the event ends🧜🏻‍♀️
Liberty brought a bus of students here. Counting about 25-30 people in line to board. 🧜🏻‍♀️
Alright. I’m up out of here. 🧜🏻‍♀️
