On Sunday, conservative activist Candace Owens shredded liberal elites including NBA star Lebron James for their “anti-cop” narrative which most likely encouraged the ambush of two LAPD officers on Saturday.
Owens unloaded on James, calling him “pea-brained” for a comment he made in May when he said black people are “hunted” every time they leave their homes.
“Why does this happen?” tweeted Owens. “Because pea-brained celebrities that are idolized like [LeBron James] tell young black men that they are ‘literally being hunted.’ This is the natural result of such hyperbolic, dishonest rhetoric.”
“The racist, anti-police, black lives matter LIE is to blame,” she added.
“Why else does this happen?” Owens later added in another tweet. “Because when pea-brained athletes put the name of an alleged RAPIST on their helmets and jerseys, criminals begin believing they are acting as heroes.”
“BLACK LIVES MATTER AND THE COMPLICIT MEDIA ORGANIZATIONS, ATHLETES, AND ENTERTAINERS ARE TO BLAME,” Owens continued.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
The two sheriffs deputies — a 31-year-old female and a 24-year-old male — were shot in an ambush-style unprovoked attack, authorities say. “The pair were sitting in their parked vehicle outside of a train station when they were approached by a suspect who opened fire without apparent cause, leaving the two deputies severely wounded,” The Daily Wire reported.
Following the ambush, the deputies were taken by ambulance to a local hospital. As the pair were undergoing emergency surgery alleged Black Lives Matter protesters moved to block hospital entrances and exits and reportedly shouted that they wanted the deputies to die. The protesters also, news reports note, tried to storm the hospital’s emergency department.
The Twitter account for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department posted: “To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling ‘We hope they die’ referring to 2 LA Sheriff’s ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL. People’s lives are at stake when ambulances can’t get through.”
During the altercation, a number of the protesters were arrested, as was one NPR reporter who was “interfering” with cops.
“After deputies issued a dispersal order for the unlawful assembly of a group of protesters blocking the hospital emergency entrance & exits, a male adult protester refused to comply & cooperate,” LA County Sheriffs tweeted, as noted by The Daily Wire. “During his arrest, a struggle ensued at which time a female adult ran towards the deputies, ignored repeated commands to stay back as they struggled with the male and interfered with the arrest.”
“The female adult, who was later identified as a member of the press, did not identify herself as press and later admitted she did not have proper press credentials on her person. Both individuals have been arrested for 148 P.C.,” another tweet said.
