Candace Owens, the communications director with Turning Point USA, testified at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on the topic of “white nationalism”. She let them know that the real problem is Dems’ fear-mongering to “brown people” and keeping minorities “perpetual victims.”
From the Daily Caller
Conservative commentator Candace Owens appeared Tuesday before a House Judiciary Committee hearing on hate crimes and white nationalism.
During the hearing, Democratic California Rep. Ted Lieu said, “Of all the people the Republicans could’ve selected [for the hearing], they pick Candace Owens. I don’t know Miss Owens; I’m not going to characterize her; I’m going to let her own words talk.”
Lieu then held up a cellphone and played a recording of Candace Owens speaking about Adolf Hitler and nationalism, which surfaced online in February.
……“I think it’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip in its entirety,” she started before Democratic House Chairman Jerry Nadler cut her off, saying, “It is not proper to refer disparagingly to a member of the committee. The witness will not do that again.”
Owens responded that she did not refer to [Lieu] as stupid. She clarified that she accused Lieu of purposefully misrepresenting her views by playing a short version of the clip in which she talked about Hitler and not the full clip, which she noted was two hours long.
“I am deeply offended by the insinuation of revealing that clip without the question that was asked of me,” Owens said to Lieu.
Throughout the hearing, Owens spoke about her past experiences with hate crimes, the black community and her transition to conservatism.
Owens mentioned her grandfather, 75, who was sitting directly behind her. “My grandfather grew up on a sharecropping farm in the segregated South. He grew up in an America where words like ‘racism’ and ‘white nationalism’ held real meaning.”
Owens, who said in her opening remarks that she is a Democrat who supports President Donald Trump, said Democrat policies have harmed blacks.
“The biggest scandal in American politics is that Democrats have been conning minorities into believing we are perpetual victims all but ensuring our failure,” Owens said.
Owens also said the hearing was more about the 2020 election than white nationalism, which she pointed out was much worse in the United States than during the lifetime of her grandfather, who was with her at the hearing.
“He grew up in an America where words like racism and white nationalism held real meaning under the Democrats Jim Crow laws,” Owens said.
“The hearing today is not about white nationalism or hate crimes,” Owens said. “It’s about fear mongering, power and control.”
“It’s a preview of the Democrats’ 2020 strategy,” Owens said.
“Reparations and white nationalism,” Owens said. “That is the Democrats’ preview.”
Later in her remarks, Owens said she has suffered continuous mocking and hatred from Democrats because she is a conservative, including many calling her the N-word and “Uncle Tom.”
She said she came to her conservatism by studying history without the filter Democrats have put on racism in the United States, including the Party’s opposition to ending slavery and its involvement in the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacy.
……Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) questioned Candace Owens on Tuesday afternoon during a House congressional hearing on hate crimes and white nationalism, asking Owens if she had ever encountered hateful speech, bigotry, or racism during her encounters and interactions with conservatives.
“I speak in front of conservatives, probably three times a week,” said Owens, “I jump on a stage and I say everything pro-black, and they [conservatives] are so supportive, and they applaud. All they want is for black Americans to realize that they are Americans first and foremost.”
“Conservatives are patriots, the president is a patriot, and I’m a patriot, and there is no skin color in patriotism,” affirmed Owens.
“I am willing to fall on a sword a thousand times for [black Americans] to wake up and realize that we are being lied to, abused, and used by the Democrat Party,” said Owens.
Rep. Buck responded by asking Owens why, then, did the chairman of the House Committee on the Judiciary, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), say in his opening statement that Owens openly associates with “purveyors of hate.”
“Purveyors of hate, by his definition, is anybody that supports the president,” answered Owens, “I support the president because he’s done a tremendous job in helping the black community, despite all of the rhetoric from the media and leftists that do not want him to be successful.”
Owens continued by elaborating on what President Donald Trump has done to help the back community:
“He’s lowered the black unemployment rate, it’s the lowest its ever been — I believe the last number I checked was 3.5 million people are off of food stamps, something that the Black Caucus — sat down and didn’t applaud, neither did any of the Democrats applaud because they want a system where blacks are dependent on the government. They are people that put in place the policies that broke down the black family, and the biggest problem that’s facing our community is father absence. In every room that I’ve been with the president, he talks about real issues, and he doesn’t pander to us, he doesn’t do Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s southern drawl accent and speaking to us like we’re slaves. He asks us important questions, and the most important question he could’ve asked was, ‘black America, what do you have to lose?’ because we were already losing under Democrat leadership.”
……“We’re not talking enough about political hatred in this country,” continued Owens, “we’re not talking enough about conservative activists being attacked, like myself, and we had a student whose dorm was set on fire for being a member of the Turning Point chapter, and all we preach is for free markets and capitalism as a means to lift the most people out of poverty.”
“And, of course, my main thesis is that black people do not have to be Democrats, and we are not owned by the left.”
The highlight of the exchange is when she schooled leftwing nutbag Ted Lieu:
Note that Lieu tried to accuse her of calling a member of the committee “stupid”, when in fact she said, quote:
“I think it’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip in its entirety”.
Which demonstrates how stupid Lieu really is.
…… “As I said, he is assuming that black people will not go and pursue the full two-hour clip. He purposefully cut off — and you didn’t hear the question that was asked of me. He’s trying to present as if I was launching a defense of Hitler in Germany, when in fact the question that was presented to me was pertaining to wheher I believed in nationalism, and that nationalism was bad.”
As Owens went on, Lieu tapped his hands together silently.
“And what I responded is that I do not believe we should be characterizing Hitler as a nationalist,” Owens said. “He was a homicidal, psychopathic maniac that killed his own people. A nationalist would not kill their own people. … That was unbelievably dishonest, and he did not allow me to respond to it.”
……”By the way, I would like to also add that I work for Prager University, which is run by an orthodox Jew. Not a single Democrat showed up to the embassy opening in Jerusalem. I sat on a plane for 18 hours to make sure I was there. I am deeply offended by the insinuation of revealing that clip without the question that was asked of me.”
The Democrats’ political platform involves hate, rage, and bigotry.
For decades minorities have served as pawns for the DemProgs. They go along with their race-baiting, victimology, the bigotry of low expectations, and racism against whites and their own people for not towing the Party line.
They like keeping blacks on the Democratic Party plantation. It gives them a demographic to exploit while mouthing platitudes about evil rich (white) corporate owners versus the workers. The myth of the Left being for the working class and minorities has been wrung for all it’s worth. It’s part and parcel of a party that uses exploitation as a campaign pitch for a target audience; a monolithic easily manipulated voting bloc that is all too willing to participate. As a matter of fact, the Dems readily admit that throwing the race card is simply a tactic for political gain.
The Left engages in some of the worst hate speech, violence, and threats on record.
They spew misogynist hatred toward female conservatives, fling racial slurs at black Republicans and Hispanic Republicans for refusing to be exploited, and leaving the Dem plantation. They especially hate white Republican/Tea Party members and hurl psychotic death threats at them for good measure.
And no one does racism like the Left.
But they’re liberal bigots, so it’s okay.
Candace Owens is an intelligent, articulate, straightforward, no bullshit pundit and activist. And she happens to be black. She’s the Dems’ worst nightmare.
