Candace Owens Clashes with Democrats in Hate Crime Hearing
“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”
No one presents a greater threat to Democrats than members of identity groups who reject identity politics and embrace individual liberty and conservatism. Conservative women, gays, and black people are treated with open animosity by the left.
Candace Owens, a black woman who represents the conservative group Turning Point USA, appeared at a House hearing on hate crimes this week was subjected to open hostility from Democrats who tried to paint her as a white nationalist.
In her opening statement, Owens struck directly at the heart of the left’s narrative.
Here’s a partial transcript via Real Clear Politics:
CANDACE OWENS, TURNING POINT USA: Mr. Chairman, Ranking Member Mr. Collins thank you for having me here today. I received word on my way in that many of the journalist were confused as to why I was invited and none of them knew that I am myself was a victim of a hate crime when I was in high school. That is something that very few people know about me because 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.
I am honored to be here today in front of you all because the person sitting behind me is my 75-year-old grandfather. I have always considered myself to be my grandfather’s child and I mean to say that my sense of humor, my passion and my work ethic all comes from the man that is sitting behind me.
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 under the Democratic Party’s Jim Crow laws. My grandfather’s first job was given to him at the age of five years old and his job was to lay tobacco out to dry in an addict in the South. My grandfather has picked cotton and he 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. They had an issue with his father, my great-grandfather.
During my formative years I have the privilege of growing up in my grandfather’s home. It is going to shock the committee but not once, not in a single breath of a conversation did my grandfather and tell me that I could not do something because of my skin color.
You can view her opening statement below:
Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who chaired this hearing, began by reading an excerpt of a column at the liberal Washington Post, characterizing Owens as a white nationalist:
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), played an out of context clip of Owens talking about Hitler, in an obvious effort to smear her. Watch this to the end for her excellent response:
Dana Milbank of the Washington Post, which Rep. Nadler somehow saw fit to set the tone for this hearing, fell right into line with the left’s narrative in a column published last night:
Candace Owens’s presence turned a serious inquiry into a farce
The new Democratic House majority held a hearing Tuesday on the rise of white nationalism, following the mosques massacre in New Zealand, the Pittsburgh synagogue killings and the deadly neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville.
Republicans invited Candace Owens to testify.
That would be the Candace Owens whom the alleged perpetrator of the New Zealand atrocity called “the person who has influenced me above all.” It’s not clear whether he was sincere in saying that, but perfectly clear was Owens’s glib dismissal of the notion that her words could have encouraged such evil: “LOL!” and “HAHA.” She said the American left tied her to the carnage because it feared her “Blexit” plan to have black people quit the Democratic Party.
This is a battle which is all about narrative heading into 2020. Democrats insist there are violent white nationalists around every corner, and that they have been emboldened by Trump’s presidency.
Anyone who disputes this will be marked for destruction, even a black woman.

What a courageous woman. Standing up to the paternalistic, condescending, totalitarian Dumb-o-crats/Dhimmi-crats.
I liked Owens’ line about flying twenty hours to attend the Jerusalem embassy opening — an event at which not a single feckless Dhimmi-crat/Dumb-o-crat could summon the moral probity to attend. The Dhimmis/Dumbs are too busy playing footsie with Jew-hating Muslim supremacists, and, welcoming them to the Party’s ranks.
The democratic party reminds me of drug addicts, they just keep making one bad choice after another. They are self destructive and oblivious that they are destroying themselves.
Owens is a sharp lady. I wish this would happen more often.
Perhaps the moniker Leftard has a loud ring of truth to it as they work diligently to prove it.
GuyJones did you see this bit of Candace’s testimony?
Just Love it!!!!!!!!!!
“”…Here are some things we never hear. Seventy-five percent of the black boys in California don’t meet state reading standards. In inner cities like Baltimore within five high schools and one middle school not a single student was found to be proficient in math or reading in 2016. The singlehood–the single motherhood rate in the black community, which is at 23 percent in the 1960s when my grandfather was coming out, is at a staggering 74 percent today. I am guessing there will be no committee hearings about that.
There are more black babies aborted than born alive in cities like New York and you have Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo lighting up buildings to celebrate late-term abortions. I could go on and on.
My point is that white nationalist–white nationalism did not do any of those things that I just brought up. Democrat policies did…” – Candace Owens
No, I missed that part. Thank you for the excerpt — I’ll re-visit the video footage.
Trump is setting up The Great 2020 Turkey Shoot.
Candace Owens defines the word Patriot.
Diversity a.k.a. “identity politics” including racism. Don’t indulge color judgments and their purveyors.
As for Owens, standing on the right principles is good for her, good for the People, and good for our Posterity.
She just slapped them both upside their heads. It was glorious to finally see someone sitting in front of those numbnuts just unload into them and let loose with a flame-thrower and they had nothing to reply with.
Republicans should invite her for every hearing. LOL
I can’t really watch (can’t hear) videos, so a complete transcript would be nice.
You might look at Grabian.
Another possible option would be to check video sources for the cc box. If it’s going too fast you can click the gear icon to change the speed a bit. If you change the speed turn off the sound as it’s affected and just makes distracting side noise.
They’re a solution in search of a problem. The supply of mythical white racists clearly isn’t meeting the demand.
They only have to look in the mirror at themselves and at all the Democrat Party politicians.
Anyone who expects brown or black people to earn their way, to obey law, must be racist.
White Nationalist, then Lieu disgraces himself with a partial quote. One must ask themselves why these politicians would make such fools of themselves. The answer appears to be that they are coordinating these accusations with the media, which in turn will edit out the responses.
It has always sickened me when ANY Congresscritter or Senator uses media stories on the Floor or in Committee as factual “news” and the basis for legislation.
Nadler using WaPo editorializing in his opening was despicable enough, but Lieu using what was most likely a Media Matters “highly edited”, “out-of-context” hitpiece really took the cake.
And it was obvious that Nadler wasn’t listening to a damned thing she said.
He owed her an apology for flat out lying about her opening testimony only seconds after she said it.
Meanwhile, Angela Davis, accessory to murders at the Marin County Courthouse is feted by the very same Democrats
Go Candace Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She really schooled those deranged turds. Outstanding.
“Candace Owens’s presence turned a serious inquiry into a farce”
If anyone would know about farces, that would be the Washington Post.
Nadler is a douche. Lieu is a douche. Candace Owens in brave. Class dismissed.
Impressive young lady. Bad enough for Lieu to smear her the way he did. But then he asked the next witness to comment on it without giving her a chance to respond. Pretty despicable.
The next Rep. congressman have her a chance to respond, thankfully. But did any of them chastise Nadler and Lieu for the way they treated their witness? If they didn’t, shame on them.
She’s REALLY cute. And what a brain.
Ms. Owen’s stomped a mud hole in Ted Liu and then stomped it dry.
The KKK viewpoint was evident from committeemembers’ words – they were hiding their sheets.
You Tube has her comments listed as ‘Restricted’
Bias? What bias?
She lost me when she introduced herself as a Democrat. She then went on to talk about the Democrat KKK and the Democrat Jim Crowe laws. Is she really that dumb to consider herself a member of the very party she spends her entire time skewering?
