Students for Trump speaker: Aunt Jemima ‘was a picture of the American dream’

In the wake of the less-than-stellar showing at his rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, this weekend, President Trump spoke in front of a packed crowd of students on Tuesday at a Students for Trump event in Phoenix, Arizona.


“The appearance, at the Dream City megachurch, was one of his first rallies since taking a three-month hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic. Images from the event showed a large crowd tightly packed together, with almost no one wearing protective masks. There were no temperature checks for the estimated 3,000 cheering attendees who, like many of Trump’s staunchest fans, ignored a new local ordinance requiring them to wear a mask, despite a public-health plea from the Democratic mayor on Monday.”

At the end of Trump’s speech, Turning Point USA’s Reagan Escudé took the stage to say a few words about her “experience with cancel culture,” mentioning a video she posted to Instagram “amidst all this chaos we’re seeing with the Black Lives Matter movement” and the blacklash she received as a result.

She also referred the recent news that as Quaker Oats removed the Aunt Jemima name and image from their popular pancake products.

“I share this story with you because what happened to me is just a small example of something that’s happening on a much larger scale in our nation,” she said. “Aunt Jemima was canceled, and if you didn’t know, Nancy Green, the original first Aunt Jemima, she was a picture of the American dream. She was a freed slave who went on to be the face of the pancake syrup that we love and have in our pantries today. She fought for equality, and now the leftist mob is trying to erase her legacy.”
