American Shithole #55 | Who the Fuck is Candace Owens?
By Eric Wilson
I by no means live for politics, but I have focused on it — nearly exclusively — since 2016, and this is the first I have ever heard of the black, female, conservative, Trump-supporting Director of Communications at the right-wing advocacy group, Turning Point USA.
It’s a crazy news cycle out there, so maybe you missed it this week when she got pwned at the House Judiciary Committee’s hearing on white nationalism in social media.
Rep. Ted Lieu didn’t know her either, but that didn’t stop him from shredding her in front of the nation — using her own words.
I love you, Ted.
“Of all the people that Republicans could have selected, they picked Candace Owens,” Lieu said. “I don’t know Ms. Owens; I’m not going to characterize her. I’m going to let her own words do the talking.”
Then he played the audio tape of Owens expressing her views on Hitler.
The following is the quote taken from that recording:
I actually don't have any problems at all with the word "nationalism". I think that the definition gets poisoned by elitists that actually want globalism. Globalism is what I don't want. ... Whenever 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, okay, fine. The problem is that he wanted—he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize. He wanted everybody to be German, everybody to be speaking German. Everybody to look a different way. That's not, to me, that's not nationalism.
First of all, what the ever-loving fuck, lady?
Secondly, the look on her face is just priceless.
You might be asking yourself, “How the hell does someone like Candace Owens exist in a functioning universe?”
It’s an understandable question.
One of the things about the statistics of big numbers is that you think you are seeing something unusual at times with the data, when in fact that type of phenomena is expected in such large samples. You are going to have some seemingly crazy fucking outliers — but it would be much more alarming if you didn’t.
That’s Candace Owens; and I am sure there are quite a few more than a handful out there just like her.
That doesn’t make her any less of an ignorant, senseless bore though, so seeing her fume and fluster was a real treat! Suck it, Nationalists!
Black fucking Nazis, you say? Will wonders never cease? I tell you, this administration’s ability to unleash every festering boil of stupidity in this country, is absolutely astounding.
Trump is the Pied Piper of Batshit Crazy.
So, who the fuck is Candace Owens?
Well, I did some Googling of course, and apparently I missed an awful lot about Candace. I felt a little uncomfortable afterwards, not only with what I learned (sheesh, she’s fucking horrible), but with myself; for being so ignorant of Ms. Owens.
I spent half the afternoon evaluating my white blindness.
Then I asked around, and the Melting Pot hadn’t heard of her either.
Anyway, I could bore you with how fucking awful she is, but suffice to say that the shitbag who murdered all those people in New Zealand, referenced Owens in his manifesto as an influence.
I can’t imagine that looks good on a resume, but with the GOP it’s probably delicious.
There are far more important issues to address in politics this week, but frankly, I am just too tired to evaluate Bill Barr’s insane personal sacrifice at the altar of the Dark Lord of Orange. It baffles me, the sheer number of high-profile Washington titans willing to commit not only career suicide, but historical seppuku for someone that literally wouldn’t lift a finger for them in return.
