Black conservative, Candace Owens, appeared before a House committee Tuesday and really took it to the Democrats, proving that they are liars, scumbags, and idiots without even having to SAY they are liars, scumbags, and idiots.
One exchange was particularly telling.
Left-wing California Congressman Ted Lieu tried to smear Owens as “justifying Adolf Hitler” by playing an edited, out-of-context snipped of audio where Owens was talking about nationalism and Hitler.
This video is, indeed, telling. In one case Democrat Gerald Nadler — the committee chairman –did NOT listen to Owens and then tried to smear her for calling Rep. Lieu “stupid.” You can listen and Owens did NOT call Lieu stupid, she said Lieu thought blacks were stupid. Clearly Nadler wasn’t even listening.
Anyway, Lieu began his time by playing a small snippet of Owens’ statement delivered last month at a conference in England.
Liberals have been using this snippet for weeks to smear Owens as a “supporter of Hitler.” But they are liars because they never play the clip in context.
Watch what happened n the committee hearing:
Owens’ opening statement was great, too.
“The media and the journalists on the Left are not interested in telling the truth about me because I don’t fit the stereotype of what they like to see in black people. I am a Democrat. I support the President of the United States and I advocate for things that are actually affecting the black community,” she said.
“The person sitting behind me is my 75-year-old grandfather,” Owens added. “He grew up in an America where words like racism and white nationalism held real meaning under the Democratic Party’s Jim Crow laws.” Her grandfather, Owens said, “has also had experiences with the Democrat terrorist organization of that time, the Ku Klux Klan. They would regularly visit his home and they would shoot bullets into it.”
“There isn’t a single adult today that in good conscience would make the argument that America is a more racist,” Owens continued, “more white nationalist society than it was when my grandfather was growing up, and yet we are hearing these terms center around today because what they want to say is that brown people need to be scared, which seems to be the narrative that we hear every four years right ahead of a presidential election.”
Owens slammed the hearing itself saying, the hearing “is not about white nationalism or hate crimes. It is about fear mongering, power and control. It is a preview of a Democrat 2020 election strategy. The biggest scandal in American politics is that Democrats have been conning minorities into the belief that we are perpetual victims, all but ensuring our failure. Racial division and class warfare are central to the Democrat party platform. They need blacks to hate whites, the rich to hate the poor. Soon enough it will be the tall hating the short.”
