Conservative firebrand Candace Owens absolutely demolished two self-important “experts” at Wednesday’s House Oversight Joint Subcommittee hearing.  The video has now gone viral and for good reason.

Owens listened patiently as she was condescended to and castigated by two white women who were lecturing her on being black in America and on the damage “white supremacy” does to black communities.  She then unleashes a torrent of truth on them that leaves them red-faced and looking very very small.

Prior to the exchange that has gone viral, Owens declared in her opening statement that white supremacy is real but that it’s been overstated and used by the left as a socio-political weapon.

During her opening testimony, Owens acknowledged that white supremacy is “indeed real,” but added that “despite the media’s obsessive coverage of it, it represents an isolated, uncoordinated and fringe occurrence within America.”

“It’s a fringe occurrence that is being used in my opinion by Democrats to scare Americans into giving up their votes to a party that can no longer win based on simple ideas, which is why we’re seeing so many of these hearings back-to-back despite other threats that are facing this nation,” she said.

“I want to reiterate that point. White supremacy is real, just as racism is real, but neither of these ideologies are real in this room. They have become mechanisms for the left to continue to call these hearings and to distract from much bigger issues that are facing this country and which threaten minorities, much bigger issues that they are responsible for,” Owens added.

It is against this background that Dr. Kathleen Belew of The University of Chicago and Katrina Mulligan of the Center for American Progress decided to “school” Owens on race in America.

The Daily Wire reports:

On Wednesday, Candace Owens appeared at a hearing before House Oversight Joint Subcommittee as they took on the subject of white supremacy, and after white witnesses lambasted her Owens absolutely eviscerated not only them but Democrats for making every presidential election about race.

She fired, “I’ve been black in America my whole life, all 30 years, and I can tell you that you guys have done the exact same thing every four years we have an election cycle and it needs to stop.”

The exchange prompting Owens’ fiery response started later, when Dr. Kathleen Belew of The University of Chicago, who is, according to The Daily Beast, “a professor and historian who has researched the rise of the white power movement,” stated:

I just have to say that I object strenuously to your use of the word “hilarious.” To me, this feels a lot like your reaction to being named in one of these manifestos. Now, you’re of course not responsible for the words of somebody writing that document. But I do think that laughing at it is a real problem, because these are real families that are impacted by this violence. And I think that our efforts toward talking about this have to start from a place of mutual respect, which is what I’ve heard from this side of the table. Now, the reason we don’t have those numbers, I want those numbers as much as you do, but to say the numbers don’t show something is simply not supported by the data.

Katrina Mulligan of the leftist Center for American Progress then stated: “The only thing that I would add is that it’s in the name. Terrorism, domestic terrorism, it terrorizes us; it terrorizes us in our homes; it terrorizes us in our schools, and to the points made by the other panelists, it is disproportionate to its impact on any individual life. It’s not.”

From there, Owens dropped some truth bombs on the privileged leftists trying to put her in her place.

Here’s the transcript:

“Every four years you bring up race, and you knew exactly what I meant when I said ‘hilarious.’ You just tried to do live what the media does all the time to Republicans, to our president, and to conservatives, which is you try to manipulate what I said to fit your narrative, okay? I was not referring to the subject matter that is ‘hilarious.’ I said that it’s hilarious that we are sitting in this room today and I’ve got two doctors and a Mrs. and nobody can give us real numbers that we can respond to so that we can assess how big of a threat this is, because you know that it is not as big of a threat as you are trying to make it out to be so you can manipulate.

And the audacity of you to bring up the Christchurch shooting manifesto and make it seem as if I laughed at people who were slaughtered by a homicidal maniac, is in my opinion absolutely despicable. I think that we should be above that.

To try to assign responsibility or any meaning to a homicidal maniac writing a manifesto, which, by the way, also cited Spyro the Dragon, the child’s cartoon; he also cited Nelson Mandela as a source of inspiration. I don’t think that Nelson Mandela has inspired mosque shootings; you can correct me if you think I’m wrong.

“You would rather assign meaning to a homicidal maniac than to actually address the things that I said that are actually harming black America; number one: father absence; number two: the education system and illiteracy rate. Illegal immigration ranks high; abortion ranks high; white supremacy and white nationalism, if I had to make a list of one hundred things, would not be on it.

“This hearing, in my opinion, is a farce, and it is ironic that you’re sitting her[e] and you’re having three Caucasian people testify and tell you what their expertise are. You want to know what my expertise are? Black in America. I’ve been black in America my whole life, all 30 years, and I can tell you that you guys have done the exact same thing every four years we have an election cycle and it needs to stop.”
