On Tuesday, Candace Owens, a former victim of a hate-crime was called before the House Judiciary Committee on hate crimes and white nationalism to testify. She offered her remarks about her and her families experiences and encounters with hate and racism. However, Democrats were not happy at all, that she had been invited by Republican leadership and even bemoaned her invite, as they said that she was there because the minority Party is allowed to invite someone like Owens!

Quickly, once Owens began to speak, it became blatantly apparent as to why Democrats are terrified by Candace Owens, as she so eloquently called out their blatant hypocrisy, and how the left has used black Americans for political purposes! In fact, Owens started out by criticizing the radical left-wing Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) for misrepresenting comments that she had made, and twisting her biography, as she stated…

“You reduced it to one sentence, calling me a conservative activist. It wasn’t what I submitted to your office last night and I think that you opened with anti-black bias.”

Ironically, Chairman Nadler (D-NY), like most of the now out-of-control and hate-ridden left, introduced Candice Owens as a “conservative activist”, and smeared her by saying that Owens openly associates with “purveyors of hate.” However, they failed to note in their biography of her, that she is and has long been a registered Democrat who has become upset with her party over their treatment of blacks! They failed to even note that she was the victim of an actual hate-crime, and not a so-called hate crime like the one derived from contrived or false accusations, like with Jussie Smollett in Chicago! However, her support of President Trump and his policies has drawn strong condemnations from both the Democrats and the Mainstream Media, as they paint her as a radical right-winger!

Then, she called out the hearing for what it was, as she pointed out that the so-called hate crimes hearing was nothing more than a political show. She added…

The hearing today is not about “white nationalism” or “hate crimes.” It’s about fear-mongering, power and control. It’s a preview of the 2020 Democrat election strategy… 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.… White supremacy, racism, white nationalism, words that once held real meaning, have now become nothing more than election strategies.

Owens pointed out that Democrats don’t discuss or work to resolve the ‘genuine problems’ that plague the black community, like in education, single motherhood, and a massively high rate of abortion amongst blacks! She then points out that…

“My point is that white nationalism did not do any of those things that I just brought up. Democrat policies did.”

Then, Candice Owens chastizes the Democrats over their use of blaming ‘white nationalism’ on the plight of the black people in America today, and details how Democrats use so-called ‘white nationalist violence’, to support their allegations against the right! Then, she explains how they do so, by using altered and manipulated statistical numbers, with widening definitions of ‘hate crimes’, as to provide cover for the true cause of the black people’s plight…the Democrat policies that have been implemented!

Then, Breitbart News revealed that…

“Nadler used a report in his opening remarks on Tuesday at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on hate crimes and the rise of white nationalism in the Donald Trump era that highlighted crimes that took place from 2008 to 2016, when Barack Obama was president.”

Owens added…

If they actually were concerned about white nationalism, they would be holding hearings on Antifa, a far left violent white gang, who determined one day in Philadelphia last August that I, a black woman, was not fit to sit in a restaurant. They chased me out, yelled “race traitor” to a group of black and Hispanic police officers who formed a line to protect me from their ongoing assaults. They threw water at me. They threw eggs at me, and the leftist media remain silent on it.

Then, the radically left-wing Representative Ted Lieu (D-HI) took the floor and immediately attacked the Republicans for even allowing Candice Owens to speak at the hearing on hate crimes! He said…

“In congressional hearings, the minority party gets to select its own witnesses. Of all the people the Republicans could’ve selected, they picked Candace Owens. I don’t know Miss Owens; I’m not going to characterize her; I’m going to let her own words talk.”

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-HI)

Lieu then played a highly edited cellphone tape of Ms. Owens and used it to paint her as a Nazi and Hitler sympathizer. It came from remarks that she made during a conference last December. Then, they were edited and publicized widely by the Mainstream Media in February, as a means to smear Owens for daring to criticize the Democrat Party, and calling out their part, in the plight of black people today! Regardless, Representative Lieu, knowing it was edited together to smear her character, played it anyone in front of the committee, and before the nation! On the tape, you could hear Owens saying…

“I actually don’t have any problem with the word ‘nationalism.’ I think the defintion gets poisoned by elites that want globalism. Globalism is what I don’t want.  When we say ‘nationalism,’ the first thing people think about — at least in America — is Hitler. You know, he was a national socialist, but if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK then, fine. The problem is, he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. He wanted everyone to be German. …”

Then, rather than allowing Owens to even respond to the blatant smear, by a recording that was maliciously put together, he refused to allow her to respond, and asked another witness, Eileen Hershenov, of the Anti-Defamation League…

“When people try to legitimize Adolf Hitler, does that feed into white nationalist ideology?”

It was a smear that has been repeatedly used against President Trump, and his supporters across the nation! Now, in Congress, it is being weaponized and used against not only a witness and victim of a hate crime but a black woman whose family, as well as she, has suffered under the Democratic Party’s policies! Now, they are treating her like a criminal, not because of any crime that she has committed, but because she dares call out the corruption and lies perpetrated by the now radical left!

However, Owens is the type of person who will not sit quietly while her character and race are smeared and besmirched! Therefore, she quickly made it clear that Representative Lieu had intentionally misrepresented her views, and did so to drive a false narrative against her, the President, and Republicans! She told the committee that…

“I think it’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid, assuming that they will not pursue the full two-hour clip and he purposely extracted … the question that was asked of me. He’s trying to present this as if I were launching a defense of Hitler …That was unbelievably dishonest and that he did not allow me to respond to it is worrisome [GOP Rep. Reschenthaler allowed her to use his time to do so] … I’m deeply offended by the insinuation.”

Quickly, Chairman Nadler (D-NY) chimed in, not to apologize for the false mischaracterizations made against Candice Owens by Representative Lieu (D-HI), but instead to once again attack Owens, and threaten her that she is not to criticize a member of the committee! Nadler said…

“the witness will not call another member of the committee stupid!”

However, once again, Nadler mischaracterized her statements, as SHE NEVER CALLED REP. LIEU STUPID! Instead, she said that he obviously thinks black people are stupid!

“I didn’t refer to him as stupid, that’s not what I said! That’s not what I said at all! You didn’t listen to what I said!”

Then, rather than apologizing again, Chairman Nadler (D-NY) just shrugged her off, like she is a nobody, a stain!

Then, Candice Owens added…

“May I continue”

Chairman Nadler, simply shook his head yes, but wouldn’t even-so-much as give her a spoken answer! Owens went on…

As I’ve said, he’s (Rep. Lieu) is assuming people won’t go pursue the entire two-hour clip, and he purposefully cut off, he didn’t play the question that was asked of me! He’s trying to present as if I’m launching a defense of Hitler in Germany, when in fact, the question that was asked of me was whether or not I believe that Hitler was in Nationalist, and whether or not I believed in Nationalism and that Nationalism was bad, and what I said was that he was a homicidal maniac that killed his own people . A Nationalist would not kill his own people, and that was exactly what I was referring to in the clip! And he purposefully wanted to give you a cut-out, similar to what they do to Donald Trump, to create a different narrative! That was unbelievably dishonest, and he did not allow me to respond to it, which is worrisome, and should tell you a lot about how people are today trying to drum up narratives!

By the way, I would like to also add that I work for Prager University, which is run by an Orthodox Jew, and not a single Democrat showed up to the Embassy opening in Jerusalem. I sat on a plane for 18 hours, to make sure that I was there! I’m deeply offended by the insinuation of revealing that clip, without the question that was asked of me!

Candice Owens

Rep. Lieu (D-HI) looked startled and worried by her refusal to back down, as the Democrats tried to quickly move on!

VIDEO 2: Rep. Lieu Plays Tape, and Owens Responds

 

Then, Representative Ken Buck (R-CO) questioned Candace Owens, asking if she had ever encountered hateful speech, bigotry, or racism during her encounters and interactions with conservatives. Owens responded by stating…

“I speak in front of conservatives, probably three times a week. 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. 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.”

Candace 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.” Owens responded by saying that… 

“Purveyors of hate, by his definition, is anybody that supports the president. 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.”

She then explained how President Trump has been successful, and why she supports him, by stating…

“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.”

Owens then explained what she is doing to battle discrimination, and fight for free speech throughout colleges and universities throughout America! She said…

“I do a campus tour, tonight I’m flying up to University of Connecticut to continue that, and we are being met with aggressive leftist groups. Three Antifa chapters have declared they’re going to try to shut it down, and we face this violence every day on the left, and nobody ever wants to talk about it. We’re not talking enough about political hatred in this country, 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.”

Sadly, Candice Owens is just one black American who suffers from racist-ridden hate that is subjected to anyone, especially minorities, if they dare question the Marxist based Fascist Elitists who have taken over the Democrat Party! Rep. Nadler and Rep. Lieu are only two of the racists-laden leftists who have declared war on Conservatives and pro-America Nationalists who are fighting for America, and the average Americans who have suffered for too long under the leadership of the power-hungry Elites! Fortunately, we have heroes in America like Candice Owens, who are willing to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves! If not, our nation would already have lost its freedoms, and lost so much that too many have taken for granted for way too long!
