Candace Owens testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee on hate crimes and white nationalism on Tuesday has now become the most-watched c-span video of all time. The following day Ownes told Turning Point USA founder and Executive Director Charlie Kirk, that Democrats had put on the “ultimate display of cowardice” at the committee hearing.
“An ultimate act of cowardice,” responded Owens, giving her take on one particular moment from the hearing, “The idea that he tried to create a narrative and just think that his constituents, that the American people are so stupid, that they are not going to go pursue the full context of what we were talking about.”
Owens then went on to talk about another congressman, Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), who had also acted unprofessionally by calling her “despicable,” and then left the hearing.
“Of course, after he calls me despicable, he leaves,” said Owens, “He doesn’t give me a chance to respond — because they’re all cowards — they say that they want to lift up minority voices, not mine. They say that they want to ‘hashtag believe women,’ apparently not me. People need to realize that.”
In an opinion piece written for The Daily Caller Owens has this to share:
My mere presence at the hearing turned a “serious inquiry” into a “farce,” according to Dana Milbank, the arch-liberal columnist at the Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post.
“Serious inquiry?” What a joke.
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.
Owens went on to say:
When I pointed out how absurd it was to claim that America is somehow more “racist” or “white nationalist” now than it was when my grandfather was a sharecropper in the segregated South, Rep. Ted Lieu put on a serious face and tried to smear me — a black woman who works for an orthodox Jew — as a Hitler-loving anti-Semite. Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) then flat-out lied, banging his gavel and falsely claiming I had called Lieu “stupid” when I tried to defend myself.
She concluded with this:
It’s rather ironic that after a whole room of Democrats devoted an entire hearing to pretending that black Americans like me need to be terrified of the white nationalists “rising” behind President Trump, it was the president and his family who came to my defense in response to their race-baiting smears. Given the Democratic Party’s long history of both explicit and implicit racism, though, it’s hardly surprising.
