In an article with the Daily Caller, conservative Candace Owens discussed her astonishing day on Capitol Hill where she destroyed Ted Lieu along with other Democrats in Congress.
“When the Democrats’ ridiculous, fear-mongering “Rise of White Nationalism” hearing blew up in their faces, liberals went looking for a scapegoat: me,” she started out in the article.
Last Tuesday, Owens hammered Democrat congressman Ted Lieu for editing a video to make her appear to be a racist and anti-Semitic Nazi sympathizer. The young black conservative slammed Democrats and blamed them for using terms like “white nationalism” to focus on “fear-mongering, power and control.”
Lieu tried to trap Owens by playing an edited clip of her speaking at an event to portray her as a Hitler sympathizer. This cheap shot didn’t work out for Lieu.
“I think it’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip…That was unbelievably dishonest…I’m deeply offended by the insinuation of revealing that clip without the question that was asked of me,” Owens said during the hearing.
“He’s trying to present as if I was launching a defense of Hitler in Germany, when in fact, the question that was asked of me was pertaining to whether or not I believed that Hitler – whether or not I believed in nationalism, and that nationalism was bad,” Owens continued. “And what I responded to is that I do not believe that we should be characterizing Hitler as a nationalist. He was a homicidal, psychopathic maniac that killed his own people. A nationalist would not kill their own people.”
The reaction from the hearing has been insane considering Owens completely destroyed a US congressman in Washington D.C. Owens explained some of her feelings since the hearing in an article with the Daily Caller. Check out what she said:
That hearing was a farce from the very beginning; all I did was expose it for what it was. The entire exercise was nothing but the opening salvo of the Democrats’ 2020 election strategy, which involves getting minority voters to the polls with a combination of fear and bribery — using the specter of “white nationalism” to smear Republicans while Democrats call for “reparations” in the form of government handouts.
It was a cynical, condescending attempt to mislead black voters, and while the Democrats had a whole panel of left-wing identity politics activists and social media executives to help them, only Zionist Organization of America leader Mort Klein and I were on hand to counter their deceptions.
We had our work cut out for us, even with the very conspicuous absence of representatives from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC scammed its way to a half-billion dollar fortune by stoking racial fears among minorities, making a business out of willfully smearing conservative Christians and immigration restrictionists as “hate groups” on par with the Ku Klux Klan.
Even though recent controversies have made the SPLC too toxic for even the Democrats to risk inviting, much of the liberal media still cited SPLC propaganda in their coverage of the hearing.
The Democrats’ chosen activists, meanwhile, dragged out juiced statistics suggesting America is suffering through a wave of white nationalist violence and “hate crimes.” In reality, though, only a tiny sliver of violent crime in this country is committed by “white nationalists,” even under the absurdly broad definitions these groups use to inflate their statistics and further their fear mongering.
