Candace Owens has been portrayed in the media as a stereotype of herself.
If you just get your news from establishment sources, you’ll find Candace on the defensive, enraged, and offended. However, nothing could be further from the facts. I’m a mother, a wife, a friend, and a sister. People I’ve worked with have often expressed surprise that I have a sense of humor, despite the fact that humor is one of my defining characteristics. However, in this era of media manipulation that aims to depict people as either good or bad, woke or bigot, the truth of who I am has been fully stripped away.

And it’s not just celebrities and people with high-profile social media accounts who’ve had their true self taken away — whether by the media, social media, or woke scolds at work — a growing number of people recognize how this feels. Every few days, a new viral story emerges in which someone who was simply going about their business has been thrust into the harsh spotlight. They are unable to protect themselves against the onslaught, and as a result, they often succumb to the cancel culture.
Everything I want to do is be myself. I simply want to be myself and not feel compelled to self-censor my voice, actions, or thoughts in order to meet the demands of a bullying community.
That’s what we all want: to just be ourselves. This is something I see every day. Since I am unapologetically myself, my followers have told me that I have given them permission to be themselves.
This should not be appropriate, especially in the United States. One of the founding principles of this nation — individualism, the individual pursuit of fulfillment, happiness — is this profound desire to be oneself. So much of it comes down to simply feeling free to be yourself, unencumbered by a tyrannical government, an activist media, or corporate cowards who bend the knee to the diversity, justice, and inclusion crowd.
But we’re advised that we’re not supposed to be like this — that we’re not supposed to be ourselves. We’re told that because you’re a woman, you have to be this. You must be this because you are a guy. You must be whatever the woke tell you to be because you are white, black, lesbian, homosexual, or trans. And people have succumbed to being bullied into submission. Around the same time, we’ve evolved into a culture where embracing the values we used to share — family, religion, and democracy — is seen as ignorant, uninformed, and bad. All of this now necessitates phony woke repentance and hostage apologies.
It’s past time to stop making excuses. We need to build a culture in which people are encouraged to make mistakes and it is appropriate to be honest. This is how the society can be saved.
One of the reasons I’m starting a new show with The Daily Wire is to provide a space where marginalized voices can be heard, where values like family, religion, and democracy can be championed unapologetically, and where all the PC nonsense goes to its rightful place in history: the ash heap. I can assure you that you will never hear a copied and pasted apology from me on the broadcast.
If I make a mistake, I’ll own up to it and move on. And I will never apologize for being a true person — because that is never a mistake.
We are at a crossroads. None of this — bullying, shaming, and forced apologies — existed in our world a decade ago. We must take a stance and say, “I’m here, I’m a republican, and I’m not going anywhere.” I’m going to do it. Come along with me.
