Candace Owens appeared on Fox News Wednesday to call out a racist attack on California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder. She called the moment and subsequent lack of coverage “absolutely infuriating.” Elder was walking down a street in Los Angeles when a woman in a monkey mask threw an egg at him. The entire exchange is caught on video.
“I know Larry Elder, he’s a friend and a mentor. He’s a member of the board of my foundation,” Owens said. Her foundation, BLEXIT, is the anti-Black Lives Matter, advocating for Black people leaving the movement. “If this is on the other side, if a white woman wearing a monkey mask through an egg at a black democratic candidate this would be wall-to-wall coverage. Actually this might actually constitute a hate crime in Los Angeles.”
Larry Elder is the Republican candidate in the California recall election. Californians will vote on September 14th whether to remove current Governor Gavin Newsom and replace him with Elder or leave Newsom to finish his term. Elder has drawn attention because of his policies, including eliminating the minimum wage.
“She needs to be arrested and charges need to be brought, I’m not sure why she was wearing the monkey mask, I have no idea why she was wearing it but I would like to see more information about that,” Owens said.
Now, the election is already facing calls for an audit due to a software breach. Eight election security experts demanded that California’s Secretary of State Shirley Weber immediately audit the results of the recall election.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
