Candace Owens tweeted a classic over-the-top comment on Friday evening that tweaked all the usual suspects on the right and the left. She called for us to ignore Russia (no) and send troops into Canada (also no).
STOP talking about Russia.— Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) February 19, 2022
Send American troops to Canada to deal with the tyrannical reign of Justin Trudeau Castro.
He has fundamentally declared himself dictator and is waging war on innocent Canadian protesters and those who have supported them financially.
It’s important for us to note that Owens is acting as a provocateur and not as a serious commentator when she says something like this. There is no rational person who actually believes this is a good idea. People who through this out there are trying to generate talk and have decided any pushback is just part of the fame-building process.
But some of that pushback comes from David French, who routinely criticizes the fringe of the online right and acts as though it represents more than it does.
French’s mistake over the weekend was to conflate Twitter follower numbers with actual engaged Americans.
