Angry Candace Owens tore into Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu (Calif.) for falsely pushing the narrative she supports Adolf Hitler by playing an out-of-context clip during her testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.
“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,obviously thinking the black community will not make it in the United States ” Owens told the committee Tuesday.
“He purposely presented an extracted clip…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.”
“I’m deeply offended by the insinuation of revealing that clip without the question that was asked of me,” she added.
Lieu played the clip of Owens speaking about Hitler during the committee’s hearing about what Big Tech should do to combat “white nationalism,” putting her remarks about nationalism out of context.
"The hearing today is not about white nationalism or hate-crimes, it’s about fear-mongering, power and control."
