Things got heated today when during a House Judiciary Committee hearing that was supposed to focus on hate crimes in America. It’s hard for anyone to take these gotcha Democrats seriously anymore, especially when the House Judiciary Committee is headed up by hard-left Representative Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and had three hard-left activists sitting on the panel they questioned about hate crimes.
The panel included three radical activist women: Eileen Hershenov, Senior Vice President Policy, Anti-Defamation League, Eva Paterson, President, Equal Justice Society in Oakland, CA, and Kristen Clarke President and Executive Director, National Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. There were two representatives from the left-leaning social media giants, Neil Potts the Public Policy Director at Facebook, and Alexandria Walden, Public Policy & Government Relations, Google. Only two people appeared before the panel who were not there to make the case against whites in America, Mort A. Klein, President, Zionist Organization of America, and Turning Point USA’s Communications Director, Candace Owens.
When it was Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu’s turn to talk, instead of discussing the topic of hate crimes, he used his opportunity to use an audio clip of Candace Owens speaking about nationalism and attempted to smear her with it, by falsely accusing Owens of expressing her support for Adolph Hitler.
Watch, as the smug little Democrat lawmaker holds up his phone and knowingly plays an edited clip of Owens, in hopes of smearing her character, while Owens’ elderly grandfather sits behind her. Owens told the committee and guests in the chamber, “I don’t know Ms. Owens. I’m not going to characterize her. I’m going to let her own words do the talking. So, I’m going to play for you the first 30 seconds of a statement she made about Adolf Hitler.”

Instead of giving Owens a chance to respond, the arrogant Lieu moved directly to Eileen Hershenov, Senior Vice President Policy, Anti-Defamation League to ask her opinion on Owens’ support of Adolph Hitler, never once giving Candace Owens the opportunity to defend his vile mischaracterization of her to the committee and to the public watching the hearing.
When it was time for Rep. Reschenthaler, the next Republican member of the committee to speak, he explained that he wanted to give Owens the opportunity to respond to Rep. Lieu’s vile accusation. Candace Owens began, “I think it’s pretty apparent that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid and will not pursue the full clip in its entirety. He purposely presented an extracted clip…” Democrat House Judiciary Committee Chair, Jerry Nadler loudly banged his gavel and admonished Candace Owens, saying, “The witness will suspend for a moment. It is not proper to refer disparagingly to a member of the committee. Uh, the witness will not do that again.” Of course, Owens never called Lieu “stupid,” she only suggested that Mr. Lieu believes that black people are stupid, and therefore unable to defend themselves from his sort of trickery and deceit used to assassinate her character. After Chairman Nadler finished admonishing her, he told Owens to go ahead with her response. Owens responded, “Sure, even though I was called ‘despicable.'” Nadler responded, “the witness may not respond to a member of the committee as 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. May I continue?” Nadler was clearly shaken by Owens, who refused to be bullied by the leftist lawmakers, conceded, telling her to go ahead.
As I said, he is assuming that black people will not go pursue the full two-hour clip. 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 pertaining to whether or not I believed in nationalism and if nationalism was bad? What I responded was that I do not believe that we should not be characterizing Hitler as a nationalist, he was a homicidal, psychopathic, maniac, that killed his own people. A nationalist would not kill their own people. That is exactly what I was referring to in the clip and he purposely wanted to give you a cut-up, 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 where people are today in terms of trying to drum up narratives.” Owens went on to admonish the dirty Democrat by reminding him that she sat for 18 hours on a plane to travel to Israel to attend the US Embassy opening. Owens gave the smug lawmaker one last shot before ending her savage response to the dishonest Dem, “I’m deeply offended by the insinuation of revealing that clip without the question that was asked of me.”
