Extortion of Black Pain for White Dollars

A review of Candace Owens’s documentary on the corrupt swindlers of Black Lives Matter.

“Darkness can not drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate can not drive out hate: only love can do that.” —Martin Luther King Jr.

It takes a brave and honest person to shine the light of truth on a dark story. And Daily Wire political commentator Candace Owens has done just that with the release of her new documentary, “The Greatest Lie Ever Sold,” which became available for streaming yesterday. Like the Wire’s other ventures into documentaries, this one was yet another thoughtful and well done piece of journalism.

Owens starts off by introducing the story and why she got involved. She describes the vicious backlash she received from prominent media figures for a social media post pushing back against the narrative surrounding George Floyd’s death. From here, she artfully weaves her thesis — the media, which controls the narrative, is the enemy of the people. She places the lion’s share of the blame directly on the shoulders of the media (both social and mainstream), which collectively used its influence to incite the riots, sell the lie about the circumstances surrounding Floyd’s death, influence a jury to convict Officer Derek Chauvin of murder, and protect the scam artists at Black Lives Matter.

She interviews numerous people to give her audience a better picture of the characters involved. She spends a lot of time showing film and other evidence that support the theory Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose. She also does a good job of giving a more full picture of Floyd as a complicated individual. She does this by interviewing his ex-roommates and letting them share stories about Floyd and their generally positive relationship with him. Furthermore, Owens gets a more full picture of who Derek Chauvin is. Both Floyd and Chauvin have been painted in 2D by the media: Floyd was a saint; Chauvin was a demon killer cop. Owens humanizes them.

Her investigative reporting on the BLM organization was savage. She did some deep digging into its IRS Form 990, which is a case study in alleged fraud, malfeasance, and money laundering. The Patriot Post has covered the many nefarious purchases by BLM’s founder, Patrisse Cullors, and the dubious use of BLM donation money. What Owens uncovered was even more sinister.

Some $2.6 million was given to various charitable organizations involved with transgenderism. Additional millions of dollars were given to organizations that teach and organize activism and activists. Remember how locals at the BLM riots were bewildered by the people who were “protesting”? They were most likely bused in by these BLM-funded organizations. Owens’s coup de grace was underlining the fact that none of BLM’s millions has gone to help the black Americans effected by the riots. All that donation money seems to have been lining Cullors’s pockets.

Owens powerfully concludes her documentary with these resounding words: “People should be angry. People should be rightfully angry that [the media] acted the part of a marketing agency for what is in my opinion a complete fraud [BLM]. A fraudulent organization that uses black emotion and black pain to extort dollars from white America.”

To people who have followed the tumult surrounding George Floyd’s death, the subsequent riots, and the nefarious actions of BLM, this documentary will be enriching. To those less familiar, some stories such as the tragic persecution of journalist Liz Collin and former Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis President Bob Kroll might be a revelation and require some research to understand their backgrounds.

Overall, Owens was sincere, engaging, and at times cheeky bordering on disrespectful — to those who deserve it. Her documentary is a good watch.
