Conservative firebrand Candace Owens shared a moving video on her Twitter page Monday featuring more than 2,000 black and Hispanic demonstrators singing the national anthem during a Saturday Blexit demonstration in Washington, D.C. At the time of this reporting, Owens’ video has been viewed more than 447,000 times.
What are the details?
As highlighted by the Daily Wire, an estimated 2,000-plus Blexit — “black exit,” a movement Owens created in 2018 to encourage black Americans to leave the Democratic Party — demonstrators marched over the weekend.
Owens’ video captures the moment that the demonstration concludes with a singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Owens shared the video on Twitter with a stark comparison between Black Lives Matter protests and the Blexit demonstration.
She captioned the video, “Black Lives Matter protests end with rioting, looting, and the destruction of minority communities. BLEXIT protests end with 2,000+ black and Latino Americans singing the national anthem.”
“This is a beautiful moment that the mainstream media won’t report on,” she concluded. “I’m so proud.”
As seen in the video, following the singing of the national anthem, demonstrators break into chants of “USA! USA!”

Saturday’s demonstration saw the thousands march in support of back police officers and law enforcement officials.
On Saturday, Owens tweeted, “Black and Latino Americans do not support the Marxist, anti-police rhetoric that has become fashionable in the media. Today, thousands of us have descended upon Washington D.C. to #BackTheBlue. Minorities do not belong to the Left.”
That same day, she tweeted, “This is what an *actual* peaceful protest staged by thousands of minorities looks like. Today was incredible.”
Fox News on Sunday reported that Owens told demonstrators that President Donald Trump has supporters all around the country because he clearly supports law and order.
“There are people all around the country that support this president because he supports law and order. It’s that simple,” Owens said during the Saturday march. “Law and order should be what you want no matter what color you are. If you are an American, you should want law and you should want order. That is the way forward.”
