Burgess Owens to Speak on Portland’s Liberal “Whiners, Weenies, and Wimps” at GOP Fundraiser June 24th in Clackamas

Wilsonville, OR – The Oregon Republican Party is announcing their upcoming fundraising dinner on the evening of June 24th in Clackamas featuring author and inspirational conservative speaker Burgess Owens.

Burgess Owens Book

Owens’ presentation “The Dream, The Struggle & The Prize” will share his life experiences and lessons that led him to victory as part of the 1980 Oakland Raiders Super Bowl Championship team and, later, to his crusade for conservative principles

Owens grew up in the deep South when the barriers of segregation were being torn down. He will share his insights into how decades of liberal legislation have suppressed the black community and how the underlying principles of freedom, faith, and family make our American system unique, precious and valuable.

“We are looking forward to hearing Burgess Owens’ perspective on what Liberalism has done to minority communities and to younger generations of Americans,” stated Oregon GOP Chairman Bill Currier. “He tells it like it is, backs it up with his life experiences, and lays out his prescription for how we can engage Americans of all ages on conservative principles. This is exactly what we need to hear in an age of Antifa and Indivisible."

Owens will also be signing copies of his eye-opening book, “Liberalism or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies and Wimps” which contains his observations and advice for Americans who have bought into the myths of Liberalism.

“I’m thrilled to be coming to the Portland area to share my message and my life experiences in a place that really needs to hear it," said Burgess Owens, featured speaker for the June 24th fundraiser. “Like the rest of America, I’ve watched on TV as Portland’s liberal ‘Whiners‘ have rioted, while Oregon’s ‘Weenies‘ and ‘Wimps‘ in elected office have let it happen and let Oregonians down.”

“I’m coming to encourage conservative grassroots supporters to take my challenge to actively contribute time and money to the Oregon Republican Party as they stand up to these liberals and offer a great Conservative alternative,” added Owens. “Let’s inspire a new generation to leave behind the failed ideas of Liberalism. Join me June 24th as we get started!”
