REVIEW: The Greatest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and the Rise of BLM

Review by Jon Donnis
When George Floyd died there was a media outcry, which resulted in the famous BLM riots across America, over a billion dollars worth of damage. People murdered, and society changed forever.

Candace Owens has made an incredibly detailed, and well sourced documentary looking at the death of Floyd, and specifically the rise of the BLM movement.
Candace looks at how the media controlled the entire narrative of what happened with Floyd, which in turn deeply affected the trial of the cop accused of killing him, as well as how the media reported on BLM.

We also see how after she first spoke out, Dave Chappelle attacked Candace in one of his shows with a sexually charged, brutal misogynistic take down, something that I as the viewer had no idea he had done, mainly as no one reported on it. Is the reason that it was not reported on because Candace is a black, female conservative?

Candace sits down and speaks to people who new Floyd best, not his family, who we learn didn't even bother to visit Floyds home after his death to collect his belongings, but the people who actually lived with him, people that were never interviewed by the media, because their story did not match the narative that the media was pushing at the time.

Candace also looks at what happened to the nearly $100 million that was raised by BLM, where did that money go? 

This is an incredible detailed and fair documentary, which anyone who took an interest in the George Floyd case and BLM in general should watch. It is eye opening, and even I as someone who is deeply into polictics Stateside, learned a lot that I didn't know.

I score The Greatest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and the Rise of BLM a solid 9/10
An incredible documentary that everyone should watch.
