You know where I stand when it comes to conservatism, Beloved.
I love the values. I love the principles. Most of all, I love how the spiritual laws empower us.
So, it baffles me when I see prominent Conservative pundits once again using their platforms to dismiss the current issues plaguing our nation.
And today, that statement isn't a figurative one.
It is literally what we are witnessing right now: a national and global plague.
Now, whether or not we feel media over-exaggerated the problem, that's neither here nor there. I have my opinion about it all, which I've readily expressed on Facebook and Twitter Class for months.
What I want to address is how heartless Conservative pundits are right now in the face of what millions of Americans consider a national crisis.
I hate to say her name on my blog, because I don't want to keep giving her attention. But the more Candace Owens tweets, the more she alienates herself from having significant impact in the conservative movement.
For the past few days, she has been on a rampage, attacking media and even some Conservatives for complying with the government's shut-in.
For a while, I didn't comment on her tweets, mostly because I hate wasting my energy on her.
But the other day, she doubled-down on her insensitive remarks, stating that we need to consider the numbers as the primary objective for this "unnecessary shutdown." In other words, if we've witnessed thousands more deaths due to the flu or cancer or heart disease, why are we shutting down the country over a few hundred deaths?
I finally responded with the following:
Let's be honest. The current punditry class is hanging on by a thread. They relied heavily on Trump's economy to convince voters that he's the best choice for Election 2020. They preached that message strongly, not because they actually care about the nation, but because they love their current positions.
They love the attention and the money that comes from their "fame." And as long as the economy remained strong, they had something to stand on, even as they used their platforms to degrade key voters.
But you know what I have to say about that: "The law of sowing and reaping is always in effect." And you can bet key voters are paying attention to the way Conservatives react to the pandemic, whether it is warranted or not. It all boils down to basic spiritual laws: the way we treat people is the way we will be treated. And their latest moves have only strengthened support for the Democrats, who continue pushing to get more aid to Americans.
Here's the deal: If Democrats succeed in partnering Joe Biden with Kamala Harris, for example, that's a winning ticket, or at bare minimum, a momentous threat to the Trump camp.
And that means with the Democrats reclaiming control, the current Black "leaders" in the conservative movement will finally fade into oblivion. Not only did they fail to reach Black voters because of their heartless, anti-Black message; but now they are pushing general Conservatives away by dismissing the deaths that have resulted from the plague.
How difficult is it to say, "Our nation is hurting. Let's come together and reason with one another." How difficult is it to show compassion during this difficult time? How difficult is it to remember that we are humans first, political pundits last?
As I often say, we cannot expect people to embrace conservatism when the prominent voices push a heartless narrative. There's a time and season for everything. And right now, the season isn't looking so fruitful for the conservative camp.

Beloved, Help Conscious Black Conservatives Take Our Empowering Message to Mainstream Black Audiences by Giving Just $25.
What would you give to see the Conscious Black Conservative message become mainstream in America? What would you give to see the faces of your empowering Black Conservatives on television? What would you give to hear more messages that break down the racial barriers between Black voters and Conservatives?
Hold that number in mind as I share this amazing journey we are about to take.
Over the last few months, I and other authentic Black Conservatives have used our voices to preach a message that empowers Black voters. You've watched as we taught social, political, and economic conservatism. You observed as we tore down the racial stereotypes pushed by mainstream conservative pundits. And you listened as we urged fellow Conservatives to adopt a new method for effective outreach.
Now that we have made significant strides in changing the conservative political landscape on behalf of Black voters (via social media), we are ready to take our message to mainstream Black audiences. We want to see our message openly discussed through a new television show focused on Conscious Black Conservatism. And our target network for broadcasting this show is the newly launched Black News Channel.
The mission of the Black News Channel is to:
And we are confident that such a network will fully embrace our idea.
But we need your help.
Over the next few months, we are launching an aggressive campaign to raise $25,000 to kickstart this venture. The funds we raise will be used to:
Our television series will specifically target Millennials, Generation Z, and Generation X. We will not use our newfound mainstream platform to shame Generation Black Boomers for their allegiance to the Democratic Party. We recognize what our ancestors and family members did to ensure our generation had the opportunities we experience today. We bless them, and we honor them for their fight.
But now a new generation is prepared to "bring home that check" by delivering a message of Conscious Black Conservatism to the masses. A new generation is here, one with a growing desire to see something more than Civil Rights Era politics.
This new breed is focused on creating social, political, and economic empires for the next 100 years.
And with your help and ongoing contributions, we will make this happen!
