I have returned from Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit, the first part of which I wrote about here, including our visit to the White House. A highlight of the second half of the event was the announcement of “Blexit,” a new project spearheaded by Candace Owens.
What is Blexit?
BLEXIT is a frequency for those who have released themselves from the political orthodoxy. It is a rebellion led by Americans wishing to disrupt the simulation of fear.
BLEXIT is a renaissance. It is our formal declaration of independence.
You can read about it here. Candace and the rest of the crew are planning to criss-cross the United States, holding Blexit rallies in all major cities.
This is, of course, the Left’s nightmare: African-Americans declaring independence from liberalism, the welfare state and the Democratic Party. And the current generation of fiery, smart young black leaders can, I think, make it happen in sufficient numbers to be a political earthquake.
The announcement of Blexit took place in an auditorium where everyone present got a free Blexit t-shirt. It is the only article of clothing I own, or am ever likely to own, that was designed by Kanye West:
America’s 21st century black liberation movement is important. We will continue to follow it with great interest.
